How much of this do you already sort of do? How much of it have you already picked up on from anime? I'm lazy on most fronts but for me anime has been a great teacher muhuhahahaha.

Need to practice though.  I'm too much of a slob sometimes

I wouldn't say I master it either, I just try as much as I can to hold the food between the two chopsticks, sometimes it's easy and sometimes, I lose control of my hand and the food falls (LOL)

For me if I cant hold the food between the chopsticks I just stab it....
Aim high, otherwise what is the point in trying?

ive been eating instant noodles with chopsticks for years, its easier for some things than others though. once you get the hang of it that is :P i only use it for noodles :P

as for the other stuff, most of it i know from anime, or from sites like the one you linked that i have read already.
i dont do really any of it since i am not in japan :P

I've been using chopsticks since I was a little kid (I even have a collection of various designs. ;D) so I know how to use them pretty well at this point, though I don't use them super often. It's also habit for me to take my shoes off when I step inside a house, but again that's because it's something I've been doing since I was a kid. It's always been a rule in my house: shoes come off in the entryway, so the floors won't get dirty. ::)

I haven't picked up many habits from anime I don't think... I've actually picked up more from learning Japanese. It might be from the educational videos I watch or the fact that these things are constantly mentioned in my textbook, but ever since I've started learning Japanese I've started picking up mannerisms like bowing (even when talking on the phone...), handing things to people with both hands, etc. :tongue:

ahhh now that i think of it i have picked up a few mannerisms
-saying frequent japanese words/phrases when the english word isnt used much (sakura i will always say instead of cherry blossom) thats more of a multilingual problem since i do it with Spanish as well.
-bowing to apologize/thank (i do it before i notice but stop before anyone else notices i think)
-hands together to apologize or thank someone.
-holding cups/bowls with one hand under and one hand to the side, although this is more deliberate
-saying "eeeeehhhhh" (i couldnt believe it but actual japanese people say this soooooo much)

shoes off is a rule in my house to keep the floors clean, so that doesnt really count.

I used to do the shoe in the house thing but laziness got the hold of me. Feel totally guilty about it now.

I wish I could get that culture ingrained in myself. Seems so... Honourable. And ironically friendly in my opinion. At least there is mutual suspect there rather than what I tend to see in others. It's more like alpha male central and with negative muscles and presence to support me there is just no chance of me surviving on that front haha.

People really say 'eeeeh?!'
