There’s No Fucking Seat For You! (Japanese: おめーの席ねぇから!, Omee no Seki Neekara!) is a quote from the 2007 television drama Life (ライフ), a live-action series based off the Japanese manga written by Keiko Suenobu. The scene has been used in MAD videos on Nico Nico Douga (NND) due to its melodramatic and cheesy acting.
Fuji TV began airing the live-action television version of Life on June 30th, 2007, which ran until September 15th that year. The show featured insidious depictions of bullying and explicit content involving several troubled high school students. According to a Japanese Wikipedia article for the manga, the television station received more than 2000 complaints from viewers during the program, which prevented the studio from rebroadcasting the show on other channels. The infamous remark “There’s no f**king seat for you!” was first spoken by Manami Anzai, the antagonist and the leader of a bullying group, to Ayumu Shiiba, the protagonist of this drama, in a scene where she throws Shiiba’s seat and textbooks from a terrace during the first episode. The phrase was uttered a second time during the end of the final episode aired on September 15th, 2007, in a scene that inspired the video fad.
Due to the scenes campy nature, it began being parodied on Japanese hub sites. Users of the Japanese image board 2channel created Shift-JIS art (Japanese ASCII art) inspired by the line and NND users began using the scene as a source for MAD videos.
Among the hundreds of MAD videos created, the Kirby Sky High style video marked an increase in popularity for this series. The video was uploaded on October 9th, 2008, and has been viewed over 2 million times in total as of August 16th, 2012.
Appearance in Other Productions
A Japanese TV anime series for a light novel Jinrui wa suitaishimashita, famous for including many parodies and homages for otaku/sub cultures, parodied this scene in its 9th episode which was first aired in August 27th, 2012.
At the beginning of the episode, several fairies throw a seat away and say to another fairly “Omee no Seki Nee desu”.
