Hey, guys. BobbyDragon1r7 here. I get curious when watching anime and develop some questions that bothers me or may bother you.

[Note] I WOULD NOT ASK IF I DO KNOW THE ANSWER!

When lets get straight to the point.

In some anime the girls, are so interested in gay manga. Why is that and is that true for Japanese people or somewhere else in the world?
Ex. Gate, Utawarerumono

In anime mostly in Japanese setting or themed anime, the students change shoes for going into school and leaving school. Is there such rule there or its just a popular little detail they like putting in?

-Utawarerumono: False Faces
So the main character is called Haku. Is there a story behind that name because in Ep. 6 and 20 when he said his new name? The owner of the inn and the other girl was really surprised. So was the general at the fort. Is there a story behind it or something like that. I mean I actually went on a lot of anime Wikipedia to look for answers but none really gave much.

-Utawarerumono: False Faces
Anyone know the outro music of the anime? I sounds really interesting. The name of the song would be nice. The author of the song is good too. And if you have a link (YouTube, website, and etc) would be amazing. Thanks!

-One Piece
What is the current OP (opening song) for one piece? Name and Author please. Thanks!

-Mobile Suit GUNDAM Iron Blooded Orphans
What is the song at the end of the anime? When the credits were starting to appear. It sounds really interesting. Name and Author would be nice. Thanks!

Well Here They are please try to answer them if you can or you may know. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all who have time to view this and/or answered any of the questions.

Thanks again!

Asians do in fact like taking off their shoes. And I say Asian, as every family regardless of origin does do this usually compared to others.


And yes, there are a small segment of women interested in homosexual relationship. Manga that cater to this graphic are usually written by women, and is called yaoi. Women who are fans may be considered fujoshis or some crap.

Most of the better schools have a dress code that includes school shoes.

A bit of a broad statement there, given that Asia is the largest continent. There are a lot of cultures spread between Turkey and Japan; Sri Lanka and Russia. I don't claim to be an expert but I expect there will be a variety of attitudes to footwear.

Duly noted, but they're not really what people think when people say Asian countries.

1) Japanese woman like gay men porn for much the same reason that many American (and Japanese, for that matter) men like lesbian porn. If one is good, two is better--or at least I guess that's the logic.

2) In many cultures--Japan included--it is considered rude to wear your outdoor shoes inside a house or building. After all, doing so tracks in dirt, mud, etc., especially in places without paved roads or in places that get a lot of snow.

In Japan, those traditions have been paced down (from a time before paved roads) and are still in effect (although exceptions are made for Western-style buildings including some hotels, offices, and western-style houses). It is extremely impolite in Japan to wear out-door shoes in-doors in most cases, including school; so, you change shoes. In homes, there is a small entryway where slippers might be provided for guests--or guests might just go around in sock feet. But in a large school, they provide shoe lockers and a very large entryway where students change their shoes, from their outdoor shoes into an in-door shoe that looks like a slip-on sneaker.

It's using fujoshi for some laughs. Fujoshi is just a general term used for women who are fans of Yaoi and BL material.

This is extremely common. It is considered very rude to walk into a many buildings with your shoes on. Homes will almost always have an area in front of the door for you to take off your shoes and put on slippers. For schools it's very similar. You take off your shoes and put them in your shoe locker and take out your indoor shoes, or uwabaki as they are called. For western office buildings or retail stores it's not an issue though.

Utawarerumono False Faces is a sequel to the original series, Utawarerumono. In that series the main character's name is Hakuoro. Kuon named Haku after that character.

Perhaps the perception varies by location? Round here most people would suggest India or Pakistan first if I asked them to name an Asian country.

If I asked about "east Asian" I'd most likely get an answer of China or Japan.

I just said a whole bunch of nothing, though in my experience, people who identify as Asian are usually East Asian, where people of India clearly refer to themselves as Indian and so forth.

Debatable. One could argue the fetishization between both topics are not at all similar, I.E. there are plenty of women who don't jack off to boy love, nor is all boy love pornagraphic in nature. I think a more appropiate comparison is yuri.
