Japan Blood Types

As seen over at Shibuya246, the signboard states that A is the most common blood type, with over 40% people having this type.

With the rain out, there is not much to do but maybe go find a seat in the blood bank. Right now, it looks like they have a shortage of all types of blood. The sign says 大ピンチ, dai pinchi or “in a large (pinch) bind”.

What blood type are you? You can check out this article on the Japanese blood type theory for the character’s traits. How true do you think it is?

Never donated blood before as I used to be underweight. But now, I am afraid of needles poking to my meat ^^”. What about you?

    @ All: I’m actually surprised that you don’t know what your blood type is! It’s important to know in case of emergencies, you need to know and inform the doctor.. And not tell the doctor you don’t know.. Lol~

    Actually, by world statistics O is the most common (or so it was three years ago anyway), at 40% (AB is the least common at 2% or something). The B allele runs in the family but it came down to double recessive to generation (I’m O).


  • Jacques said:

    GNDynames is spot-on about AB being the least common. I’m a AB+ here :p And there is a saying that for skinny people those who donate blood, they can grow fatter if they donate frequently. Not sure if it’s true but donating blood does allow your body to make new blood, making you healthier.
