From my 2 years in Japan, I can say that most of it's just weird fantasies, but there are those that try to fill the stereotypes from anime because they think that it would be helpful in attracting boys, but those are few and far between.

Things that are true that you see frequently in anime:
Highschoolers do hike their skirts up regularly.
Those high-pitched squeeky voices? Yah, they're real, but only used when speaking to specific people (boyfriend, specific family members etc.).
If still in school, they wear their school uniforms everywhere.
Many are closet Otaku, or at least with a few favorite series.
Shoe box confession letters do happen, but are not as common as anime makes you think.
The taller you are, the more attractive you are to them by default, doubled if a foreigner.

There is probably more, but this is all I care to write right now.

When Virtual Reality goes mainstream, expect many people to create anime avatars.

Some dirt, perhaps mud.

I'd say no women are like those portrayed in anime.

Japanese girls irl are completely different from anime girls. I've had Japanese exchange students for 5 years. But they're still just as lovable they're really awesome, fun to hang out with and cook some dope food. So if I ever visit Japan, I'll have friends there already, which helps a lot.

I would say it's fantasy.

You know we sometimes say, mother fuck just tell her/him you love him/her all ready. Or oh my good just fuck all ready, dude the guys like you ,tell him how you feel girl. Oh my god how fucking dense you can be. Well apparently that shit is real in Japan.

In the words of the author.

So when you're reading manga or watching anime and think it's unrealistic that the characters have so much drama from people not being straight up with how they feel, remember it is realistic in another culture and maybe just a bit more complicated than you're used to.


Also while I have no idea what you mean by weird, I find most anime girls hot, both in personality and body type.

And Chris since you are new to this. I will say this to you. This weird to you, because you are from another country. Remember this isn't made for any of us. This made for Japanese fans primarily. That mean your taste is going to clash with theirs. Ether you like it or hate it. If you want something that is more up your taste. Just ask us and we will help you find something you like. Personally I like all anime in general and I share the same taste has the Japanese fans do. So I can't relate to you but I understand where you are coming from. Also this is fiction and it should be treat has that by you and everybody. If you think something is fake or unrealistic or real. Ether ask us or goggle it.

Well what he ask was pretty dumb. That like us asking if american cartoons represent reality. Kind stupid to even ask. You can say one series or this group of series is realistic or real. But asking if something has a whole represent a whole group. Is pretty stupid most of the time. You will hardly find something that actually represent reality 100 percent of the time. Especially in fiction. Unless is historic or a realistic series. It should be always taken with a grain of salt.
