In Japanese high school, senpai means they are their senior year

It's like why Rise is all Senpai every other line

I just looked it up.
https://www.lingualift.com/blog/senpai-kohai/

In Japan, the senpai-kohai system underlies nearly all relationships. Although there is no exact translation into English, senpai (先輩) means an upperclassman, senior employee or other older person with whom you have dealings. Conversely, kohai (後輩) is the junior or lower person.

What's even funnier is that Steam had banned or censored more games in the last year than the ESRB, Sony, Nintendo or anyone has this entire gen lmao

lol @ comparing Steam to locked platforms that don't even allow adult content to begin with. Steam also doesn't require your game to get an ESRB rating.

Steam does, however, require your game to not hurt any fee-fees.

more like, they require your game to not hurt their business.

Lets face the facts here. Sexualization of minors and Rape simulators is bad for business. simple as that.


Yeah, I’m sure there’s thousands of people who will stop buying games on Steam because some anime games being available trigger them. There aren’t And even if they wanted to, Steam has no competition so good luck with that.

In other words #fakenews

lol? it's called bad press, losing your advertisers, getting booted off of mobile phones (android, apple) that carry your app, getting the attention of politicians that can enforce regulations on your company, etc. Politicians literally discussed Rape Day in UK parliament.

Bad for Business.

But there are really 18 year olds in high school that look like kids

This is discrimination


But what about the 1st year who constantly calls you Senpai

Senpai don't mean necessary she is more younger than you or underage, senpai is thrown around pretty free in japanese media, is a respectful form to adress someone you don't know well.

I thought senpai just meant someone who would be considered your superior. Like, this 70 year old guy I work with who helped me with my CDL would be my senpai while this 19 year old guy who I'm helping with his CDL would be my kohai.

I've always thought of it as you're on the same level (both students, same job level, etc.) but the other person is more knowledgeable than yourself.

That seems like it's a part of it. It's definitely not dependent on age. In One Piece Bartolomeo calls Luffy "Luffy-senpai" even though he's 24 and Luffy is 19. I assume that's because Luffy has more experience as a pirate than Bart.

It mean that, but usually in japanese galges any girl that it have a younger look over you or think you are more skilled or important in the school hierarchy will call you like that, the term have being fetished just like oni-chan.

Y'all don't watch and play as much Japanese high school stuff as I do. It's only about upper class men in that scenario. Ive never heard some upperclassmen call a 1st year Senpai

Well, in school I think senpai would usually mean someone older since they normally would have more experience. I'm not sure how Japanese schools work, but if it's anything like American schools then there's a possibility that a high school junior could be younger than a sophomore if they were the youngest/oldest of their respective year. In that case I think the junior would definitely be a senpai even if he's younger.

Gonna need a citation for SJW gaming press leading to all those things you mentioned. The UK is irrelevant compared to the US market, and in the US video games are protected under the 1st amendment:
A 7-2 majority of the Court found the law violated the First Amendment, affirming that free speech applies to digital content and new media as much as to traditional literature.
