2channel - the largest BBS in Japanese

2channel is the largest BBS in Japanese.
You can post there as a anonymous ... it means you can post everything what you want.
So it becomes a lawless area and there were many flame wars, announcement of suicides, slander persons, accusations, ...
Sometimes those things become serious social issues.

On the other hands, it creates new sub-culture - their own dialect, ascii arts, joke flash movies, good stories, News, ...

I intend to introduce japanese internet culture on this blog, that's why I wrote this entry. Already, we've not able to describe Japanese internet culture unless 2channel. Sometimes it will be appeared on this blog.

See Wikipedia/2channel for more details.

  • I discovered this BBS after watching the Densha Otoko drama! I did not think this board exist in the real life.
    (Apparently according to Wikipedia 2channel is even the largest worldwide BBS, not only in Japan.)
    I wish I could read it :-|

  • Oh, do you know Densha otoko?
    It's really interesting. Did you watch it in French ?
    How do you get it?

    BTW, some people who is not native japanese speaker try to read/write the BBS. Even they use 2ch slang/dialect ....
    I'm worried they use these words in official ;).

  • Oh, I googled "Densha otoko", then I found "Project Densha" which translates "Densha otoko" thread faithfully.

    You can feel 2channel with ascii art.

  • In fact I watched Densha Otoko in Japanese, with English subtitles. I got it from... hum... bitorrent... hum... you know :)
    It was very funny, I especially enjoyed the otaku scenes :) But the romance parts are too exaggerated in my opinion.
    Thanks for the translation project link! I just started to read it, very funny.
    Now my girlfriend downloaded another drama called Kimi Wa Petto (about a girl that takes a man as a dog). Just watched the first episode, a bit funny but not that more. Not sure if I will continue, but my girlfriend love it :)

  • English subtitles?
    Great, I don't know bitorrent has auto-translation function...
    Oh, yes, it's joke. But always I'm supprised lots of japanese books/animes/dramas translate to other language in "unofficial".

    I don't know "Kimi Wa Petto".
    Because usually I don't watch doramas.
    I think you and your girlfriend know japanese doramas better than me;).
    # Actually, I've not watched Densha otoko dorama ;).
