    wierd...apparently this "game" teaches you ladylike manners.

    ign says, "The game attempts to teach players the knowledge, manners and skills required of an upstanding woman." [​IMG]

    Not at all.. Japanese women need to know their place in society (about 2 steps behind the men!) - they could do with bringing out a Western version [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's too late for that. If they brought this out in the west it would cause nothing but lawsuits and Very Special Episodes of Oprah.

    Was I too subtle?!

    Anyway, living in Japan since last year I've come to clearly realize that is pretty much the state of the society when it comes to gender roles, and the women here are not even too bothered about changing the situation - they just tend to go with what is established and everything has to be done/people have to act as is accustomed. There is a general feeling that young people are not learning these skills which are essential for how people are expected to behave in Japanese society, so it is no surprise to see a title like this or the ones related to business manner, etc.

    Actually, I like the way most Japanese/Asian girls act in general (although it's can be too OTT), and even though it was a joke it wouldn't be such a bad thing if Western girls did act a bit more ladylike (at least speaking for the UK).

    Nah that's ok, just reading mangaes and animes you know a bit about Japanese culture, I mean I don't give a rat's arse about Japanese society more on the games and mangaes they have.

    Sorry didn't noticed the smileys since I don't really have much use for it

    Everything went down when we agreed that Jenny McCarthy was hot even when farting in your face, now all the girls fart worst than men. I guess we gotta blame Playboy for giving this girl to Mtv. [​IMG]
