    Of course there is some exaggeration, (which is done in any entertainment media...), but some things are true... Such as students going to school 6 days out of the week (though Saturdays are usually limited to Clubs/Sports activities...) Such as Middle School lasting for grades 7-9, with 3 years of High School... And as an example, the Japanese Goverment only pays for a student's education only through Middle School. All educational institutions from High School and above are PRIVATE SCHOOLS, (which explains the paranoia over preparing for entrance exams in all school based anime series...) Competition for slots in the better schools is quite intense. In fact, there's a saying in Japan that the secret for getting a good Job is getting into the correct Kindergarden... (which leads to the correct elementry school, middle school, High School, College, etc)

    What I'm trying to get at, is that alot of the background you see in Anime and Manga ARE TRUE!!!. You have to keep in mind that Anime and Manga are targeted for a Japanese audience. And cultural references that are common to a Japanese audience (but not to a western audience) will be left unexplained. (e.g. public bath houses, cultural festivals at schools, entrance exams for High Schools, Octopus stuffed pastries <tako-yaki>, etc. etc.)

    Something's yes, they are and by a long shot. But somethings like the festivals and activities do happen and are just that crazy. But as for the hitting your teacher, just up and leaving class. No, you will get screwed over if you do.

    Our love will go on until the end of time. I will always be yours and you will be mine.
