1. Yes, its true in Japan.
2. HOLY SHIT SOMEBODY ELSE WATCHED THIS
Go clean your friend's ear. I dare you. Bonus points if he lays down on your lap.
Are we watching this ahead of the World Cup or something? Anyways, surprised to see it. Good work, OP. How far in are you?
Why doesn't /a/ ever talk about it?
My mom always cleaned my ear for me.
I've always cleaned my own ears.
>that one guy you knew that would always have disgusting ears and would never clean them
It's shit. Especially the ending.
Michiko reminds me way too much of my mom, it's too uncomfortable. Great series, though. Sage for blog.
What. Who DIDN'T watch it?
Meant to reply to >>100028928
So everytime I went to my family doctor to get my ears cleaned, they were raping me actually?
>he didn't have a soft onee-san who let him rest his head in her lap while she cleaned his ears for him
It's that level of old where it's not old enough to be nostalgic to most people but it's not new enough for people to talk about it regularly.
How does it compare to shows that it's clearly trying to sorta replicate?
And now you need to clean your ears.

I see this in anime and manga all the time. Is it really all that comfortable?
I noped as soon as I saw the thumbnail.
If Michiko aired today, it would be "saving" anime.
what anime is this?
I assume so, seeing as how my otouto loves it.
Seems to have much better pacing than KLK so far.
Cowboy Bebop in Brazil.
I'll admit the ending was pretty Evangelion tier.
I always meant to re-watch it to fully understand just what the fuck Michiko is actually doing?
Clearly there's an ulterior motive behind finding that guy who pretty much dumped her and reuniting him with the daughter he dosen't seem to know exists...
It saved anime when it did air. Anime has to be saved every few years.
Did you even watch it?
Michiko to Hatchin
Michiko to Hatchin was supposed to be another Samurai Champloo but Watanabe let a girl do his job instead
No, that pretty much is it. She's in love with him and is delusional in thinking that he still loves her and wants to have a family. Her personal arc of the story is her getting over it and focusing on what matters: Hatchin.
And the budget fell apart.
This post makes anime sound like Princess Peach. What a fickle medium.
Has anime taught you nothing?
Oh, well I guess the other thing is that afro chick was actually in love with Michiko and her own little story getting over her the way Michiko had to get over that guy Satoshi or whatever his name was?
Paraiso or Tank! or Gun's & Roses?
Atsuko was probably a giant M lesbian, yes.
Satoshi was another character. Hiroshi was Hatchin's father.
Gun's & Roses > Tank! > Paraiso. I love Michiko to Hatchin to death, but I didn't like its OP nearly as much as I wanted to.
oh right the afro guy...he was a cool guy because his story was the only one that made sense to me.
Could've sworn it said "cleaning someone's car".
That typeface is horrendous.
Damn, that looks like it would feel so good.
Go die in a fire.
Are you fucking retarded? Evangelions tv ending is brilliant and closing as fuck.
It's an Asian thing I think.
Actually, you can find people on the streets of China who offer to clean/massage the inside of your ear for you as a sort of service - I saw it in a travel documentary.
Yeah, whitefag here. I've never heard of such a thing. If it had really become an issue I'm sure I just would have been told to get a qtip, but monitoring ear conditions is not something I experienced.
>not being relaxed to sleep to a chinese cartoon girl cleaning your ears
whitefag? You don't have to put fag on everything, man.
Oh god damn anon, this is perfect! My collection of 5 gookSMR has just increased dramatically, time to get comfy.
>being this much of a fagfag
Unfortunately, it's been a thing for years. "Newfag" as a self identifier instead of an insult was bad enough, but then it was newfag and oldfag, after that it just spiraled out of control.
A lot of people watched this when it aired.
I dropped it at episode 19. Forgot about it, really.
Well then, off to Japan i go for making them feel used for cleaning ears.
Why do you care?
It was always pretty stupid. And hearing a guy, who was obviously new himself, try to explain it offline while recruiting "new /b/tards for the epic IRL raid" kind of drove it home.
"You see, everyone that that goes to fourchan is a fag. Everyone. If you're new, then you're a newfag. If you're old, you're an oldfag. If you're Christian, you're a christfag."
Ah, yes I can understand wanting to get away from /b/-based phrases, but I think 'fag' is far too deeply ingrained in 4chan as a whole to try and fight it now. At the very least it's STILL offensive to normals, so it's not really a bad thing for us.
Yeah, but at the time it was still meme spouting while misunderstanding what memes were. Now it's a thing that you do that no one thinks about anymore and it still sounds like meme spouting.
Funny thing is, that the faggot 'recruiting' was talking to me and a christian friend of his. So he was basically showing how stupid he was to two different kind of people. And he was a fedora wearing faggot that now browses /r/atheism, so THAT is a thing that deserves to be a thing.
I had my friend who's married get ride of a black head in my ear does that count?
I thought that said cleaning someones CAR. I almost believed it because Japan.
Holy shit I just read your post and had to go back to see that it was ear and not car. Fuck.
Also what if the girl accidently slips while cleaning and hits your eardrum? Would be awesome but I would keep that fact in mind.
