Why do Anime/Manga characters still have badly hidden physical porn stashes that are easily found by nosy relatives and love interests? Nobody has those anymore in real life, everything is either on the internet or hidden in one's hard drive, no need to have a bunch of overpriced magazines when everything is a click away.

Japanese people don't use PCs.

Because LNs, manga and anime all largely rely on recycling cheap, established gags instead of coming up with fresh, relevant material.

Japan is so fucking cringeworthy and unoriginal

Actually, while this is true, it is still pretty common for people to have physical porn stashes

Because it's harder to "accidentally" log in on someones computer and find porn.

Wait what? Don't the Japanese take pride in their advanced technology and shit?
How do they use the internet?

Jayden Young

Magazines and physical media are still really popular in Japan.

They have advanced shit, but they still enjoy traditional things. I always liked that about them. Have you ever seen websites on the Japanese side of the net? Japanese sites are somewhere in between web 1.0 and 2.0. It's actually pretty glorious because they haven't been infected by the flat minimalist bullshit that pervades web design today.

Some companies dont have emails and they still fax things. Its that bad in some aspects of society while others are on par.

Most Japanese people don't use computers outside of work. Their Internet infrastructure and computer literacy statistics are some of the worst in the developed world.

I'm sorry, was cringe not a fucking word in the dictionary before the web even ever existed?

I knew that Japanese companies sucked and are very traditional, but I didn't know that it was this bad.
They're probably not as efficient as they claim to be.

Nips would be lazy though if they have murrican technology. And that is not good for the government since more NEETs and Hikkis will exist.

Yeah, that's a grorious meme.

Their GDP per work hour (a common country-level efficiency measurement) is between Italy and Greece.

In 2012, there was only one school computer available for every four 15-year-old students in
Japan. Only three out of five students (59.2%) reported using computers at school

I blame Japanese culture where seniority rules all.
The old people in charge are not inclined to adapt with technological advancements.

I'd take flash vulnerabilities over hipster web design bullshit any day. Flash is no more prevalent on the Japanese net than it is on the English-speaking net anyway.

If you want to see what's wrong with modern web design, go to any news publication's website and see just how bad shit has gotten.

It's the reason they lose the war too. 2 nukes aside.

Not really.
In western media this cliche has evolved into >Getting caught watching internet porn

My favourite joke about this was in 30 Rock where some guys were told that they were going to spend a week in a place with no internet, so they were told to make preparations porn-wise.

I'm pretty sure the J-list newsletter or something had an article about this.

If the computer is in the living room and you live in small spaces, there's no way someone will use it for porn.

Can't underage people actually buy nudie mags in japan though? That would explain why they still have porn stashes.

William Edwards

Can't underage access the fucking internet? What's your point?

Jason Lewis

Me thinks browsing porn on your smartphone is cheaper and easier than buying a porn mag in conbini, but maybe it's just me.

Cooper Gray

They still use flip phone though.

Nolan Brooks

Because there's a shitload of it? Even if the percentage of worth-while, original stuff is smaller than in western series or cartoons it's still a huge amount because of just how much there is of it. I mean just look how many series we get each season.

I have a cache of ero doujins from comiket where I live. There was also a bustling shop full of 2D and 3D ero videos, books, and magazines near where I lived in Japan.

Nope, in fact, in order to install Skype I was forced to have my computer attached to a Windows account, so I have to use a password whenever I turn it on or get it out of sleep mode.

Sebastian Lewis
Sebastian Lewis

I stopped using skype around the time microsoft bought it (not because of the buyout, that was purely coincidental) and I heard something like that last year. Just looked it up and it looks like it's being discontinued on Smart TVs in July though.
Windows 10?

Nah, Windows 8. The experience is one of the reasons I refuse to install Windows 10 no matter how many times my PC asks me to.

William Parker

Honestly, if you have windows 8 on your PC, just swallow the pill and get 10. It's really better than 8. I'm keeping Windows 7 as long as I can though.

they were going to spend a week in a place with no internet, so they were told to make preparations porn-wise

that's what all my backlogs of anime, manga, games, shows & porn in six 1TB external HDDs & three internal 1TB+, as well as the stockpile of burned DVDs in my poorfag days are for, considering how unreliable my internet can be. and they called me a hoarder. when the world ends, I will never be bored in my bomb shelter

How far behind? According to a 2015 study by the Japanese Cabinet Office, only 30% of Japanese high schoolers use laptops, and only 16% use desktop computers. (In the US, 98% of our teenagers use one or the other, with similar numbers out of the UK.) According to one study I found, about 50% of Japanese households have a computer, but many people don't use them, or only use them for games or web browsing. The majority of Japanese students use the internet exclusively through cell phones.

Good article, explains a lot

What he posted was relevant to the discussion. Just because it's from ANN doesn't automatically make it bad.

Could it also be because authors today grew up in the 80s or 90s and are thus writing things the way they were when they were young regardless of technological advances? You see this in Hollywood too.

Faxes are legally binding. Jaypegs ain't.

But e-mails are. And some company don't have fax machines anymore and just receive faxes to their mail account anyway. The company I work for barely prints anything anymore, insisting on the "paperless office".
