does the positive portrayal of school in a lot of anime ever get under your skin to the point where it's annoying/upsetting?
this has been happening to me a lot lately and i have no idea how to deal with it


Maybe stop watching cartoons for children.


I don't watch anime, but I imagine it would be frustrating. Seeing romance in TV makes me sad and angry and suicidal.


just stop watching anime about fucking school life


The few anime have watched in the last few months that even included school settings weren't really about school life.
None were overly positive or cheery about school ether. It was just a place that the characters had to go since they were school aged and it wasn't a high fantasy show or something.
A example is mob psycho (great show btw). Has a lot of scenes in the first season in or around school but is very much not about school or school life. It just where someone the protagonist age is expected to spend time at. Especially since a subplot is him coming to terms with not being "normal" but that if he tries he can still form meaningful connections with people.
Thus school becomes a setting to explore such ideas as well as present their counterpoints.


Gee, it's almost like the biggest domestic demographic for anime is Japanese schoolchildren.


In half the anime I know of, the school kids get bullied or end up killing other school kids.



It took me longer than I wanted to admit to figure that one out. I still hear the cooks at work 'sperging out with anime phrases… they're all in their 20's and 30's… I was the same - I regret going full weeb, but look forward to a future more grounded in reality.


Wrong. If you don't know what you're talking about is best to shup up.


My favorite school anime is Watamote,so no


everyone is sweet and polite to watamote-chan she just doesn't see it


Fiction is supposed to be idealistic so no I don't mind.

It does make me wish I could've been an exchange student.

I especially like the variety of clubs shown. I'd like to believe at some well-funded private school some of the more exotic ones exist together. If I were a teacher, I'd definitely be the advisor for the computing club despite having no aptitude for it myself.


>does the positive portrayal of school in a lot of anime ever get under your skin to the point where it's annoying/upsetting?
I was homeschooled growing up, but sometimes seeing school animes where the characters have friends and have fun outside makes me seethe in jealousy.


The heavy emphasis for school in anime is because it's the only world Japanese kids know which is due to boomers protesting lax changes in the education system in the 80s, there was a screencap I saw which I don't possess anymore that went over it in more detail. Also Japanese school life isn't terrible like it is in America and eastern Europe or whatever example you wish to use. Also notice how anime is escapism while Japanese film is usually somber or depressing, and if it's even a happy family there's no sugar-coating and romanticization of that happiness.


It's basically >>40068
In Japan school is looked back fondly by both normalfags and otakus, and is heaven compared to the high expectations and high conformity of Japanese adult life.
