    Haha. Yeah. No joke. Way back when, I made a thread about this (I don't know if you were here), but it kinda died down without too much discussion. Lol. My theory was that they drug the freshman with growth hormones at the end of each season.

    I think it's more the idea that Japanese people really stress on age differences, even between twins.

    But there's an extreme to such things. >_>

    I'm here for the pot.

    Really? Where do you get the stress on age difference between twins?

    I just thought it was pretty funny how they all grew like a foot in one year. It's quite amusing. I wish I could grow that much. I've grown 1 1/2 inches in 4 years.

    ^Actually, he's right. I've read a lot of mangas where they've made twins who were minutes apart in age look like they were years older than the younger twin.

    Really? I can't think of an example. 0_o? Maybe it's just the series I read. Care to give me an example? I might be able to think of other if you give me one.

    I can't think of a good example right now, but I think the trigun manga fits the bill.

    Hm... Maybe I need to go read that, then. I can't really think of that many twins in general... I can only think of Kouhei and Youhei from the PoT anime and Hikaru and Kaoru from Ouran High School Host Club.

    ^Neither of those cases stress the age difference though.

    Exactly. That's why I was kinda surprised. I can't think of an example that stresses the age difference. I wouldn't be very surprised, though. >.<

    Well, the whole size difference is indiginous to POT though. The age thing makes sense in context of ancient japanese feudal inheritances always being given to firstborns, so that explains the distinction in twins.
