Reminder that studio Trigger is the only studio ballsy enough to show minors drinking without some forced "btw this is juice, not alcohol" bullshit.
is underage drinking that bad in Japan?
How Gamagoori manages to hold or balance anything with his enormous hands is beyond me.
i thought they were drinking tea
Well, I think there was some lay passed by Tokyo not a long time back that stated that minors can't be depicted drinking alcohol in media (hence why we've seen a lot of "lol it looks just like wine and we're getting frisky but it's actually carbonated grapejuice. Woah, senpai, I can't believe you are displaying signs of alcohol inebriation simply from drinking carbonated soda" in anime lately).
They were fined 3m yen for this episode, if that shows you how serious it's taken over there.
Naruto had underage drinking.
I remember my Japanese teacher telling me how she would go to bars as a highschooler because even the Japanese can't tell how old each other were. Also, carding there is apparently unheard of.
There's a local Japanese grocery store here run by a Japanese family. They never card me when I buy sake for cooking
idk about japan but a japanese restaurant refused to serve me alcohol even though i was 20 that time. they told me they only served 21 and up
Because he has two of them?
So did One Piece
It's his RESOLVU
While we're on the subject of Japan and alcohol, would it be possible for a 19 year old to buy some there? I'll be going in two weeks.
>Iori wearing a mask while drinking
It's suddenly not there on the view from the side, though. I guess it's magical.
>would it be possible for a 19 year old
Yes, I've traveled all over Asia and it seems only the west has a stick up their ass about the whole carding thing.
they're all 18-19
drinking age in japan is 21.
They didn't exactly acknowledge that it was alcohol though.
>>Iori wearing a mask while drinking
Nichibros' been there, done that.
The are all drinking apple juice OP.
Well since they are all going to die,better to enjoy some adult things while they can.
I thought they were all teachers or so on the meanwhile? Has it been said or implied that they're still students now and not only in the flashbacks from a couple years ago?
Gamagoori is in his early 20s, isn't he?
He's almost 20
It's sake, those are sake cups, it's clear, it's an iconic gesture.
Yeah OP that makes them the best studio.I really like Trigger too.Using ass and tits to increase sales.Those guys are smart.
Maybe sake drinking is akin to giving your child a small glass of mulled wine on Christmas?
Satsuki, Inumuta, Nonon and Sanageyama are all 17-18 I think
Gamagori is the only who is 20
I have no clue how old Iori is suppose to be
At least we can show minors drinking alcohol in movies here
I live in the U.S and trust me is scary how easy it was to get any type of drug or alcohol while I was still in high school (even in middle school). That was a few years ago though so I wonder how uptight things are right now
They're all members of the student council, of which Satsuki is president. As is specifically stated several times throughout the series. How have you missed this?
that reminds me of something
>go to get some groceries
>a bunch of teenagers outside, 13-14 i guess
>'eyo, man do you mind buying us some beer'
>gives me a twenty bucks before i even say anything
>get my groceries, leave without saying a word to them
>their butthurt is collosal but they can't do shit
man, that was glorious
I guess I mentally blocked it out since they don't exactly look like students.
By any chance are you a black citizen ?
thankfully not, i'm as white as i can possibly be
Also aint Gamagori 22?
They were drinking water. Not alcohol.
Tradition of Japanese soldiers who are going to war.
Mushishi did it with a boy less than 13 years old.
That's still not legal where I live.
Serves them right.
Remember kids,say no to underage drinking
In what puritanian region do you live?
In Germany you can buy Beer/wine with 16 and "hard" alcohol with 18
What the hell, 22 and you still can't drink? Are you muslim?'
>go to the local grocery shop
>buy beer, amaretto and every kind of shit to eat
>"Isn't too early for you to drink that"
Then I paid and got out, this was 4 years ago. Sometimes living in Italy is nice
>"Isn't too early for you to drink that"
I always thought the Italians were the type to not give a fuck.
The English versions of the anime and manga called the sake potion or elixir.
I was buying beer and cigarettes for my dad when I was 12, nobody gave a fuck
now everyone here has a fetish for those electronic cigarette. Everywhere you can see kids with that thing trying to be the though guy by saying things like "yeah I need to stop smoking 'cause it's killing me". you are like 13, go the fuck away
That was like a hundred years ago, grandpa.
They're all 18.
Gamagoori is like 21
well that's like 4 dollars in american money
This isn't an anime for kids, it's an anime for neckbearded NEETs who stay up all hours of the night, so it doesn't matter if they show drinking.
>so it doesn't matter if they show drinking.
Satsuki and Gamagoori are not minors.
I forgot about the rest.
Gama older for 2 years than Satsuki.
Nonon and Satsuki are the same age.
>implying Satsuki and Nonon aren't engineered organisms.
You see teenagers here drink all the time in movies or tv series and no one cares.
>dat upside down bow
Then nonon isn't a minor either.
>amerifats thinking their currency is worth jack
That's probably because it was water, not alcohol.
>water in sake cups
Didn't kamikaze pilots do this?
That would require reading news. Can't expect them to make that much of an effort, can we?
sure it was anon, sure it was.
Does the gesture of breaking one's drinking vessel after a toast have a name or particular meaning not including Jewish weddings? Is it a war gesture?
I've seen it a couple times before, but I don't remember where.
Now if only they could make a good fight scene.
They didn't say otherwise so it might as well be. They get their drinking scene and plausible deniability lets them skirt broadcasting regulations.
It's a real ballsy move. Totally.
>be playing balder shit II
>kids in some village ask for money for swords
sheit negro didn't know that tactic works IRL
I remember Mein Kaiser Reinhardon did it in LoGH, so maybe it has Prussian/European origins.
This is a revolutionnary thing. The French resistants did this gesture before attacking the Germans.
In America, it's easier to get a hold of stuff like opiates, benzos, stimulants and cannabis than it is to get alcohol when you are underage. Don't know what that says about the country but it's true.
fucking gooks, I really cant tell when he has his eyes opened or closed
Kamikaze pilots did copious amounts of meth.
Wait, isn't that tea?
wow so ballsy. give me a fuckin break
They sell alcohol in vending machines.
Pic and Clannad related
That's only 30 000 dollars.
I'S NOTHING, I MAKE MORE THAN THAT IN A DAY
