Re: Sempai kohai differences

Excellent side question Mary. I've always believed that sempai and kohai are one in the same. There's a question of seniority, but its more of a parent/child child/parent relationship. Its important to keep in mind that both need to be aware that they are learning together. As parents and children we all know that we learn from one another. If the relationship comes off as one sided, no one is going to learn anything. As the child grows so does the parent. To quote Jor-El; "The father becomes the son, the son the father".
