Is there any show that feature a Coming of Age Ceremony ?
Never saw any in all these SOL.
Shouldn't reply but whatever. Read Marie no Kanaderu Ongaku by Furuya Usamaru, OP.
Nobunaga the Fool
I wasn't asking for recommendation, just wondering why such a big event in the life of a Japanese isn't portrayed much.
Sort off. But not really.
There isn't any in Hyouka, just a cultural festival.
Same feeling and shit man I dunno, that why I said kinda.
Because it's a declining trend?
Dying tradition, also most anime characters are teens or younger.
It is ?
I didn't know.
It doesn't appear much in anime, so Japanese kids aren't very interested in it.
Yeah see what you mean, cultural tradition, kimonos and shit.
I highly doubt kids get influenced by anime in they tradition and everyday life.
Sounds like the kind of thing they should be promoting. Just add Nippon Damashi.
Yamato Damashii you mean ?
It's quite surprising they don't promote that since a lot of shows feature things like that. (Working hard, obedience, don't talk back to elders, participate to cultural events, etc...)
Remember Lucky Star briefly talking about it
You don't see it because the characters are usually to0 young.
You do seijinshiki related things when you're 20. People are already in the middle of college, and you just don't see anime about college students.
Why no more shows during college then ?
There're multiple coming-of age celebrations though, aren't there?
The first one being when the child is 4 years old?
>Japan's low birth rate and shrinking percentage of young people, coupled with disruptions to some ceremonies in recent years (such as an incident in Naha in 2002, when drunken Japanese youths tried to disrupt the festivities) and a general increase in the number of 20-year-olds who do not feel themselves to be adults have led to decreased attendance of the ceremonies, which has caused some concern among older Japanese.
Yeah, it's like 4, 12, and 21.
In anime this got replaced by graduation ceremonies.
More like a day for sluts to dress up.
Kimono isn't slutty anon.
That is incredibly sad
I didn't say that...
I though you implied kimonos were for sluts, because it's incredibly beautiful, but yeah I guess sluts get to wear them too.
Stagnating rules with old men getting always bigger in society.
