I'm a 22y/o white male university student. I like the "idea" of anime and I love Japan/Japanese culture, but all the animes I find are all this crazy fantasy stuff about schoolgirls or robots or magic. Seriously all of them are about one of those three things.

Anyone got any animes that are more... realistic? I guess? Or like, things that are at least set in Japan modern day or earlier?

Cowboy Bebop was cool too, but something more "Japanese" would be ideal. Something dubbed is preferable too. Any ideas /a/? I want to feel Japanese just watching it.

If you don't like anime, you probably won't like japan. Also, fuck off and ask reddit or something.

So you want it to feel Japanese, but you want it in English? Are you retarded or something?

Way to contradict yourself. How can you even feel Japanese if you can't even accustom yourself to the language of the Land of the Rising Sun? Do you even study and follow the bushido code? Fucking baka gaijin.

I can only hope that your major isn't English because reading that was painful as hell OP.

Anime is part of Japan's culture. As someone said, if you don't like it, you don't like Japan. Sorry to bust your bubble, but i'm assuming your in America. What makes you think Japan is any different than America? They have degenerate whores too. SO basically you are asking for degenerate whore TV drama from Japan, go lurk on /tv/ or something or go to a board for Japanese TV drama. Anime was made for us to get away from all that normal shit we don't want. We don't want 3DPD, we don't want to spend our money on degenerate whores, ever.

OP is a classic weeaboo. I thought they all died out years ago.

so..somewhere in the third dimension
>>
>>100264781
No, the fifth. There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Anime isn't japanese. Anime is the outlet that all the small-penised japanese men throw their frustrations and short pent-up anger into with such ferocity and frequency that it resembles more a dead whore.
Go watch independent american anime-inspired works if you really want to feel japanese, because that's the major dream of all it's creators.

OP is just another shitty troll, which are nowhere near endangered.

I think this might actually be more bait than the OP.
