Do Japanese people actually get nosebleeds instead of boners? It seems to be such a popular trend with their comics and TV. It had to come somewhere.

And are they really that susceptible to getting colds there?

If stupid questions, I will just go put my head down somewhere.

I figured it was traditional joke about Asians and high blood pressure.
#103 to #41 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
The frequent nosebleeds (and subsequent embarrassment) of male anime characters are related to a folk-belief that sexual excitement in men leads to a change in blood-pressure, which in turn can cause a nose-bleed. There's a subsidiary belief more profuse the flow, the greater the excitement.
User avatar #42 to #41 - fedegon (05/21/2013) [-]
It's a kind of tradition because an old manga had a cursed pervert so that his nose would bleed whenever he got sexually excited, and it stuck, kind of like superheroes and radiation/no parents.

Also yeah, different places of the world have different environments, so colds can happen more or less frequently depending on many factors.
User avatar #46 to #42 - Psychotic (05/21/2013) [-]
The cursed pervert also got nosebleeds because there is actually a combination of factors (high blood pressure and weak vessels in the nose) that cause nosebleeds with the additional blood pressure that comes with sexual arousal.

Thank you for your helpful answers.

Except the getting colds part. Only the weak get a cold from being in the rain for 5 minutes.

Have you considered the strand of cold virus there is much more aggressive and contagious? There are some types of the cold that can prove deadly if left untreated. I think of there common cold of a similar severity to our flu, though I can't say for sure, I don't get colds or the flu
User avatar #52 to #47 - eatingmachine (05/22/2013) [-]
The strand there would have carried over the world by now if it's so contagious. It would be common knowledge there variety was more severe. You are right, however, any disease left untreated for too long can become worse to the point of lethality. I just read a lot of Japanese comics and watch a lot of anime. They portray themselves to be very immune deficient with how they're worried about getting colds from simply having wet clothes. I'd play around in the rain all ******* day back when I was a kid and would wake up the next day just fine.
#83 to #52 - rimjobmcgee (05/22/2013) [-]
Maybe all the playing the rain as a kid raised you immunity then, while they worry so much about getting a cold that their over cautious and don't do anything to raise there immunity, so its lie how babies get sick easily? We will solve this mystery dammit lol
User avatar #84 to #83 - eatingmachine (05/22/2013) [-]
Force kids to get chickenpox at an early age. NEVER GET IT AGAIN.
Kid asks parents for cold medicine. ORANGE JUICE.
Sick and can't fall asleep. STAY UP LONGER, TIRE EVENTUALLY.
#97 to #84 - rimjobmcgee (05/22/2013) [-]
Exactly. Though there is also the possibility that the actual culture of Japan isn't like that at all and it just makes for a handy though cliched plot device for a shower seen. It could also have to do with how crowded a lot of Japan is, particularly there transportation methods, so any lowered immunity a all, from a cold rain or what have you, increases you chance of getting it from the people around you
User avatar #123 to #97 - eatingmachine (05/22/2013) [-]
I get the feeling you and I are calling Japan a disease ridden country.
#138 to #123 - rimjobmcgee (05/23/2013) [-]
Not at all, I'd love to live there myself, what I mean is, if 1 out of every 1000 has a cold, statistically the more people I'm around the more likely one of the people I'm around has a cold, the more people who have colds that I'm around, the more likely I am to get a cold. If anything, I'm saying they are around a lot more people, and from there its just statistics
User avatar #88 to #41 - chcknchsr (05/22/2013) [-]
would you rather see dude getting an erection
or a nosebleed to suggest the presence of one?

this prevents awkward panning to characters' crotches

doesn't seem that complicated...
User avatar #126 to #88 - eatingmachine (05/22/2013) [-]
I don't need to see a character getting a nose bleed to know he wants to tap ass. The creeper look they put on gives me enough info.
#62 to #41 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
It's an old Japanese wive's tale that when a young man saw a beautiful girl naked blood would rush to his face that blood would some out of his nose.
#53 to #41 - kalendric ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
it's kind of simple. when you see boobies, blood rushes to your "head"
User avatar #54 to #53 - eatingmachine (05/22/2013) [-]
Well. I'm thankful blood doesn't gush from either.

I could tell you, or you could just watch it and find out.
Honestly, I would recconmed it if you like anime. It's actually really good imo.
User avatar #99 to #87 - burtgasm (05/22/2013) [-]
Ok, at least tell me the episode name?
User avatar #141 to #99 - xiiichuckles (05/24/2013) [-]
It's like 3 episodes in, you seriously can't just check it out, or is the only reason you wan to see it is for the tits? Because other than this little side boob, and more side boob much later in the show, this is it. It doesn't actually show anything.

Whats with the nosebleeds? I know its a boner related thing but why?
User avatar #16 to #9 - muchasmarcos (05/21/2013) [-]
japanese have usually lower testosterone levels and high blood pressure caused by their diet. that's why they get nosebleeds easily.
#15 to #9 - mrvoodoo (05/21/2013) [-]
As explained by yunablade, some japanese do bleed from the nose, because of the low blood salinity, which makes the blood thinner allowing it go through the nose when blood pressure rise, also happens to some people if they have a heatstroke, like myself.
User avatar #14 to #9 - yunablade (05/21/2013) [-]
It's a japanese gag only.

Supposedly "some" people bleed from the nose when aroused (but in anime 100% of the characters have this trait)
