What is mixer btw? I still didn't know it means

Still didn't know what mixer means, can someone telling me in a simple way?

It's basically when a group of people get together to introduce each other and socialize. Typically in Japan the purpose is for a group of women to introduce themselves to a group of men, have drinks and flirt.

I'm not informed on the exact specifics but it's basically just group dating, Japan has a more reserved culture and so it tends to be a more serious and formal affair than elsewhere for whatever reason.

I have no idea why Japan has this reserved culture though. Does anyone know where this came from?

Not a specialist on Japanese cultural history, but from what I've read, the Japanese society is generally extremely conservative, having been a rigidly regimented hierarchy isolated from the outside world for centuries prior to the (very recent) modernization. The country has been (nominally) liberal and equal-opportunity for less than 80 years (3-4 generations) at this point, so a lot of everyday interactions between regular men and women are still governed by old traditions or at least preconceptions, like that a woman must marry (a man, natch) before she is 25, so the only reason she enters the workforce is to find a husband. Despite all this pressure, traditional courtship rituals assign to her a strictly passive role, so a mixer is in a opportunity to signal her availability without violating "propriety" (i.e. to avoid slut-shaming) by hiding behind a collective presence (that's why it's a group event) and to give the men ample opportunity to initiate courtship during or after the event.

From what I've read, however, even this doesn't really help the Japanese society at large to keep the marriage and birth rates from falling. It's almost like an abundance of obsolete social rituals and norms produces endemic neuroses that make it hard to emotionally engage with other people, let alone with people of the opposite sex...

^^ I think the falling population is also down to their obsessive work culture too, making it the all important be all end all of adult life where lots of them get no time for socialising or properly raising family. From like highschool on they are obsessed with getting the perfect grades for the school they need for the uni they need for the jobs they need.. then in a new job after graduation they gotta work like mad to make a good impression as a newbie and get promoted etc- when are they meant to meet and fall in love? Its no wonder these work arranged mixers seem to be all they have time for.

p.s I dont really know the details either this is just the impression I get from what i've heard- and im sure it doesn't go for everyone.

Hehe, I came to comment the exact same thing.

It's amazing how Yoshiko keeps her act together (cool facade, cool attitude, perfect answers, everything) while inside she's squeeing like a schoolgirl and her heart is in a whirlwind of emotions.

Ah but perhaps, if you look closely, there are some hints of inner turmoil in her behavior... I mean, who the hell would grab the drinks & cocktails menu at a bar and tell the waiter "Bring me two of everything!"... right?

Even if there's a bit of copy/paste going on, I feel like it's been used brilliantly to highlight that cool façade of hers. Been a while since I've been so quick to add something to me favorites.
