Konnichiwa, minna-san ^^
This is the first time I write in the japanese forum. And sorry, but my japanese is even more limited than my english.

My question is maybe weird: In animes is very common for boys to speak in a very unpolite way, using words like "ore" or "omae" instead of "boku" or "kimi/anata/[person's name]" and expresions like "mate" or "iu na!" instead of "matte" or "iwanaide".

Is it "really" the way boys talk to each other or it's just a kind of "anime's thing"?

Doumo arigatou gozaimasu! Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!!

    It depends on what anime you're referring to, but most of the cases the expressions and wording in anime or comics reflect the way boys and girls are actually talking in their daily life.

    I agree with Ocham, and vice versa.
    Comics influence deeply the way boys and girls are actually talking.
    They learn dirtiy words in most parts from comics.

    So some strict parents ban their children to watch or read comics.
    But they learn from other friends at school.
