What are some anime/manga set in the glorious island of Hokkaido?
What are some anime/manga set in the glorious island of Hokkaido?
That episode of Katanagatari with the ultra-strong loli is in Hokkaido I think. Or the small islands north of it.
Needs an anime of rightful Japanese Sakhalin clay.
Map for ants
If you can't read that you need glasses.
Japanese people are small.
Kurils are shown on that map as a part of Japan
Сука блядь, пиздоглазые уёбки, американцам надо было ещё пару раз ёбнуть по вашим островам
Working!(!)(!) are all set in a restaurant in Hokkaido
Jajauma Grooming Up
Saishu Heiki Kanojo
Battle Over Hokkaido
Kimi ni Todoke
Servant x Servant
Hokkaido is fucking great. If you have a basic grasp of moon it's 200% worth it visiting the island.
Gin no Saji
Spot the pleb.
Sora no method
Noein is setted in Hakodate
They are. Get your filthy Russian hands off them.
Shikoku is the recent popular meme destination in Japan. Some nice white water rafting n such there, nice scenery and the whirlpool is cool but other than that not a whole lot going.
Getter Robo Go (anime)
Diamond Dust Daydreams
If there are anime set in Shikoku you don't notice it as much as Hokkaido. Mainly YuYuYu comes to mind.
pokeymon diamond and peril
This part of Freezing is in Hokkaido.
Seitokai no Ichizon, the forgotten black comedy harem
If there are anime set in Shikoku you don't notice it as much as Hokkaido
Why is that?
Sakurako-san. It's mostly shit though.
Hokkaido is known for its cold weather and different agriculture, Shikoku's climate isn't that different from Kyushu or southern Honshu.
Maybe I also remember Hokkaido cities better.
The 15 years a cuck show was set there
Kimi no Iru Machi.
Go on, read/watch it
Maybe if it shows one of the bridges? Also, lots of mountains.
Lucy and Izumi are from Hokkaido
Hokkaido girls are best girls
острова то все равно наши
What part of Japan doesn't have mountains? Mainly the Kanto Plain and even there they're not far.
How different is Hokkaido from the the rest of Japan?
Off the bat, I can name Boku Dake ga Inai Machi and Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru.
Doesn't Candy Boy have an episode or two set in Hokkaido?
literally no anime on kyushu
Don't use vodkahead's shits.
Almost all of Sasaki Noriko's work.
Nodame is influenced by her works.
Pretty much what Canada is to the States.
cold, people are a bit slow, lots of Russians
pokemon diamond and pearl
I always felt like Hokkaido would be the most comfy part of Japan, aren't there a lot of lakes there?
Barakamon takes place in Kyushu
It takes place on an island near Kyushu.
Kyoto is the best city in Japan.
The old home of the Emperor.
literally cucked by based Osaka
Is Tottori what used to be Obama castle?
You mean Tokyo (Edo at the time)
How is that any different than, say, a Touhoku farmland?
Touhoku grows more rice than Hokkaido does.
not actually certain but I think the manga Nasu probably takes place in hokkaido, its very small town
along that same thought, i guess YnS and SnO probably are too
only time i can think of hokkaido actually specifically mentioned is the start of chobits when he talks about moving away from hokkaido to tokyo
I want an anime about cute girls taking a trip from Okinawa to Hokkaido.
Well that's an anime about girl in a plane then.
No, they will use ships, bikes and/or cars
Was this bait or are you genuinely retarded?
Nuketown=\= comfy nature island
Kyoto > all
Anime set in Pyongyang when?
Ghost Hound, Hotarubi no Mori e, Natsume Yuujinchou, Sakamichi ni Apollon.
Pokemon Diamond & Pearl
Isn't that set in a fictional location?
blatant rec thread is actually getting replies
Since nobody cares anymore, are there any anime that have Ainu (the people indigenous to the Japanese islands) in them? I know the japs at best tolerate their existence in the asshole of Japan, but they seem like they could be a neat element in a story.
Well, of course nobody is going to have mentioned that one before in the first 60 posts.
Why don't you just read the fucking thread before replying next time?
When will we get an anime set in Karafuto prefecture?
All Pokemon locations in the games are based on real locations, although with various creative liberties. "Kanto" in the original Red & Blue was based on the actual Kanto region from Japan, but starting from Gold & Silver they started changing the names of the regions, with Johto being Kansai, Hoenn being Kyushu and Hoenn is Hokkaido. The localization attempted to hide that whole side of the game though, giving everyone and every city Western style names and such.
Their food is a little different I guess, also fresher and more local.
Kyoto hates everyone.
Well there was that one movie. What was it called again, Giovanni's Island?
That took place on Shikotan, which is part of the disputed series islands that Japan still claims as their own.
which is part of the disputed series islands that Japan still claims as their own.
There seem to be a few of those with the nips.
fresher and more local.
Is that another way of saying more racist?
I can think of two VNs aet there. Yuki Sakura and Harvest December (at least i think it was set in hokkaido)
HoroHoro from Shaman King comes from Hokkaido, and some parts of the manga, mostly flashbacks, take place there.
Hoshimemo was also up north, not sure where exactly though, I'll check.
Fucking hell you stupid japs blue is NOT green.
Because nobody did mention it until him, you twat.
Found it, it is in Hokkaido.
I love these real-life comparisons.
Kuril Islands are Russian
It still amazes me that this is the case. Just look at it! Moscow is thousands of miles away, yet these islands just off of Hokkaido are Russian
He said read the thread, not c-f "Saikano" really quickly. The full title had been mentioned already in the first ten posts.
It's like Italy's edgy chuuni sister!
Bocu no Pico
How painful would it be to go if you have 0 moon knowledge? Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka are nice and all, but it's getting fucking boring going back to the same three places on repeat.
Its hard to get off the tourist track if you have 0 moon. At the very least, have someone in your group speak moon.
At the very least, have someone in your group speak moon.
implying I have friends
Working took place in Hokkaido? Maybe that's why it looks so different than the typical city to me.
Nodame Cantabile had part of an episode in Sapporo.
Golden Kamuy is a love letter to Hokkaido, Ainu people and all things thriller and adventure.
You..go on holidays alone? Yeah you want to speak the language if you plan on doing that
nice rec thread, fag
Revised question then, how long would it take to learn enough moon to be ok going off the tourist track?
is someone else.
The problem is all my friends (Asian) love going to Japan but don't speak Japanese.
Honestly, a few months. As in 2 maybe 3. That is, if you want just enough to be barely ok.
That's enough for me. Sorry to keep asking to be spoonfed, but any resources?
I don't give a fuck about the recs, I just wanted to talk about Hokkaido. /jp/ is shit.
I hate to break it to you
There's a Japanese language general on Sup Forums and /int/, they can probably help you there
That doesn't mean you should try to have an off-topic thread on Sup Forums.
They can not help you in the Sup Forums general. They are too busy shitposting and meme'ing each other into oblivion.
They do have a guide, but thats for people wanting to learn the language, not for people wanting to rush and skip shit so they can get tourism language. Different goals, different priorities, etc etc.
Don't know about /lit/.
Kita-e ~Diamond Dust Drops~
I always thought green is generally Midori, and Aoi is blue.
Recommendation that literally takes 5 seconds in google to find
Sup Forums is truly dead.
Unless there's a local course you can take, sorry user I can't help. Good luck though
Winter arc of 7Seeds.
i've been here since 2015
I wasn't here for a year
It's sort of a fossil word. Like a century ago, the word midori started being used to describe green things. But words had already existed using 青 to denote green, and those haven't changed since they were coined. I've got no idea why a green light uses 青い, though.
You call a green light 青い but is the actual color green or blue?
Japanese is a weird language with a long history, Midori is a relatively recent term.
When Marnie was There
There has to be a distinction when talking about colour in a technical context, right?
Do they use midori for green pixels on a screen, for example, despite it being green light?
I can't believe this isn't fake.
It's not. Go to Hokkaido.
Ryukyuan independence when?
It's green. Like, 500-750 nm wavelength green.
Yeah. I mean, once physics proved that green and blue were two distinctly different colors due to the EM spectrum, that distinction is clear. For example, if you asked someone what color aojiso (青紫蘇) is, they'd say green (midori) despite the word containing 青.
green pixels on a screen
I'd bet midori would be used. I don't remember any situation where I've specifically heard/read green pixel, so I don't know for sure though.
there was this smut manga about a guy going to art school and banging all the crazy sloots. forgot the name, but pretty sure it was set in hokkaido.
That one with the cuck.
Thanks, I spat out my drink.
oh yeah, i've seen that, it was called doratora or something
Where is Boku no Pico set at actually?
I can't help but watch that entire gif every time I see it.
That looks so cool.
Hokkaido never dies.
Excel Saga is in Fukuoka (or maybe NotFukuoka).
Sushi no Shota begin in Otaru.
Ctrl+F "Darker than Black"
A good bit of S2 (It existed, yes) took place in Sapporo.
Francesca was all about advertising Hokkaido, with zombies. Too bad the fansubs stopped at episode 5.
Colder climate, so probably more focused on grains like wheat or rye rather than rice.
Shaman King, one of the main characters is Ainu.
Also the obvious Golden Kamuy.
And Saki has a character that uses Ainu gods.
Sora no Method. I actually visited the locations from it, it's really cool.
The manga Handstand! (はんどすたんど!) is set in Sapporo.
Speaking of Ainu there's also the Nakoruru anime.
There's Samurai Champloo as well. Granted, it's only two episodes, but it's there.
