It is more fun to sleep in one - in the open.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

You know, with such a low constitution as a child, taking a dip like that during the rain isn't exactly a nice idea. Not counting the fact that my father was supervising me and basically had my wrist in a tight grip.

But meh, I've unknowingly done worse stuff than that alone, and I shudder every time my mother tells me the story. If any of you here have children, or a toddler sibling, or plan to have one if you're married or about to: if your child likes wandering around... do NOT leave them unattended, lest they stray off to something of this combo: an abandoned building site near the sea, with a one-and-a-half meter rocky cliff instead of a sandy beach that separates land and water.

... Dear goodness; I am very, very glad that I grew up becoming much, much saner (or not, but at least I have the power of reason). My child self scares me.

Please, allow me to interject- I have a philosophical question.

If your naked, but your invisible (GITS style cloaking for example), is it still indecent exposure...?

^ Well........you will have to experience it to find out
On a more serious note, I guess it depends on how self-conscious you are about your body..

I wonder why there is big overlap between Anime fans and Military/weapon fan.

Because Anime is cool and guns and weapons and warfare is cool and the two of them together are very cool?

If noone sees you streaking then you probably aren't going to be arrested for it. It's basically a matter of "it won't hurt those who don't know".

Military Otakus don't care what media they watch as long as it has their kind of stuff.

The same group you see in Jormungand will be the same group you'll see in Strike Witches.

Do you watch it for the girls or for the military aspect?

There was a military aspect to it, just kidding. To me it depends on how its done and the show itself, I do love Full Metal Panic, but Jormungand just didn't grab me.

I watched/am watching all three of them. Strike Witches and Panzer make some good references, and Jormungand is... Well, in between the gungasm's, I just have to admire the detail that the crew put into it all.

Nope, it's called fun. And epic trolling

Coz anime provides the girls and guys and story and weapons provide themselves :P

I happen to stumble upon one article...
Shounen Jump Brings All the Girls to the Yard
and then that article linked me to Great Fujoshi Power

Based on the article, the day when i see SaintessHearts actually burns a venue seems closer than what I initially predicted...
On the other side... Is it true?? Is fujoshi spending power greater than the normal otaku??

I think it starts with this: Most girls handle their finances better, thus that indirectly leads to greater buying power.

well i just assume majority of female dont buy "useless" stuff like beer and cigarettes. so they can spend money on other else like fujoshi stuff.

also 50% jump reader is female is hardly surprising. you can see many of our shonen protagonist is bishonen. pretty sure that attract lot of female reader

But what about the shoes?

Think of the shoes!

And the dress, and that cute skirt, and even if they're stereotypically not too fashionable fujoshi who don't spend a fortune on fashion, which I doubt since I think women are way better at hiding their hobbies and keeping up a front if need be, them cosplays are not cheap.

The Japanese fashion industry doesn't run itself, you know.
