I've noticed that on imageboards finding anti-anime posters tends to be a pretty reliable red flag. In particular, finding posters who get really upset on someone posting some anime image is one helluva red flag. Why is that?

Spotted the anime hater


>The Simpsons is social criticism
It was at the first season. Then it turned into a soulless cashgrab and transformed into what it used to make fun of.


Because they're newfags from reddit and mainstream social media


it's absolutely not a reliable way to determine whether someone's a normalnigger or not. maybe could've been back in the day, it is by no means the case anymore. majority of the normalniggers on the web love anime. way I see it virginity has been and still is the only reliable indicator whether a person is a normalcattle or not.


Precisely. "Losers" have been effectively ejected from every niche they once could have called their own. It's genuinely depressing that there's been no "home" for people like me for ages now. Of course the individualists will always be able to enjoy their stuff in solitude, it's admirable but it's not a common power.
I don't have it. I always felt I was a social creature that suffered unfortunate injuries to the psyche and unfortunate life circumstances making it incompatible with fulfilling its basic emotional needs. I was content with just going on the internet and talking about nerd shit with the guys though, back when nerd was a dirty word.
Back then I used to be able to talk about a lot of stuff online without feeling like I was out of place, the feeling of being among mostly like minded people with mostly similar life experience was palpable. It was a comforting thing to be a part of a tribe.
For a long time now it's not really been possible for me to go anywhere and talk about anything without feeling like shit about what I am. It's obvious that it's factory settings for other users to consider people like me to be unwelcome outsiders, remnants of a "worse" era. It's a bit like being back at school again. People can't help themselves but bring their IRL stuff into the exchange and flaunt their real or imagined superiority even though they don't realize it, that's just the way they've always been offline and it's what they turned the internet into.
Normals will mockingly talk about crabs in buckets and "losers" making everything worse for themselves by convening in places where the one common factor is misery but it was the normals who appropriated absolutely everything that used to be "ours" and kinda left us no other options.
Back in the day I never really had to think about misery when I'd spend time online. Our shared issues were so much of a given that they didn't have to be at the core of discourse. It wasn't absent from discussions but most of the time we could focus on talking about other stuff, with our point of view being the assumed default without ever having to explicitly bring attention to the causes.
In the modern age though it's like there's nothing else left to define myself by but the divergence and the hurt. There are no friendly spaces. It's just their shit and I'm always the outsider. Not like I didn't try tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Name the most obscure anime shows out there in the deep dark reaches of the internet that most people don’t know about

These charts are always shitty “ironic” memes that just throw shit at the wall hoping it sticks. Like dragon ball is the same tier as LOGH and hetalia,


agree that being a streamfag is OK, especially when there are no trustworthy public torrents. i only hate watermarks.


Anyone have any suggestions for good historical anime? Not expecting accuracy. Mostly interested in feudal Japan but other settings are fine too. Been loving Vinland Saga 2.

Two of my Top 10 favorite anime that are still great and cult classic in Greece and Saudi Arabia but obscure everywhere else (even in Japan) are Igano Kabamaru and Plawres Sanshiro:


Both of them are fan-translated with Japanese audio and English subtitles. If you're Medabots fan, you'll definitely love Plawres Sanshiro since it's its great ancestor and directed by same guy who later directed Pokemon anime.

People even ignore the existence of 2000s mainstream shonen like Konjiki no Gash Bell, let alone obscure stand alone OVAs from the '80s.

A society that is ruled by laws can welcome anyone who is willing to agree to follow those laws. If they are doing things that are disruptive to your society that is a problem with your legal system that you can fix by simply outlawing whatever they are doing that is harmful.



why did you enter a thread of people who care? do by chance care a little?


No, I don't think i will.


Bait thread

I will say that if I was in a trade that was in demand there and spoke the language I would be tempted to move to one of those small villages with the free/ultra cheep houses. But I am not even sure foreigners can own real estate properly over there.

I have no clue what is keeping you people from talking about the best contribution Japan has brought into the Americas.
Personally, I like any 90s Honda Coupe just as long as it's possible to rice up to 500+ horsepower with at least 50 pounds of torque. The Honda Del Sol was by far my childhood dream car, but I ended up settling for a Honda CRX my parents gave me.

Any Toyota fans out there too? Toyota has been going down the drain in terms of fun factor. I can't wait until Toyota's reliability goes down too to the point where Toyota stops production in America alltogether like Toshiba.

And of course, Mazda is doing just fine.

you can use dremel to make fake hole real



I still have the same 97 Red DOHC VTEC del sol I had in college in one of my discinnected garages. Just like that. It was fun. I went to college in the early 2000s


I just have a shitty old Toyota that doesn't even run right now. I could have it towed and repaired or just replace it altogether, but I don't care enough about cars to sort it out. I just walk to my parents' place and give them money to buy me groceries when I need some. I'll probably get it fixed eventually. What I really want for a car is a '67 Stingray, but those are expensive as hell nowadays. Probably a bitch to maintain and a keying magnet, too.

I have always loved hatchbacks, they look the best in my opinion. it fits my personality too. I like practicality and will never need to use 4 doors or need backseats. an automobile, just like a house is to me a private sanctuary. 3 door cars represent the idea that a vehicle crafted for personal use the best in my opinion.

Anyone up for a silly post? If Kira from Death Note was facing off against Columbo, who would win? Kira seems the type who's so arrogant and conceited that he'd fail for Columbo's whole routine.

No, they were still doing reruns as recent as 2017 to my knowledge. Probably still running it to this day.

Is anyone else exceedingly bothered by the fact that they forget anime they've seen? It's like losing an important part of yourself. All these worlds and characters, even if they're fictional, feel dear to me, yet I forget what happened to them and sometimes their existence as a whole. Of course, you can re-watch anime (I'm on a spree of doing that right now), but it still upsets me.

It's as if these shows are disposable information to fill my time with, and can subsequently be discarded once I've "consumed" them. I despise my brain for failing to even roughly recollect the events of an episode I saw a month ago, yet recalling that time a random kid in elementary school made a sarcastic comment about my cellphone on the landing of the northeast stairwell, between the third and second floor. Do I have a normalshit brain that marks memories pertaining to fictional stories as unimportant and consequently, readily deletes them? How can I remember the series I've seen better? As autistic as it sounds, I've resorted to taking notes on anime and reviewing them at irregular intervals, but even that ends up in me only remembering the general plot of the show, with the finer details as well as recollections of the sounds and visuals falling through the cracks.

When I first discovered anime and manga I was in a really fucked situation, I would sleep for 0-4 hours a day and I desperately needed something to cope with my shit life with, so I immediately pounced on anime and manga and started consuming them at immense speeds. I would go through at least 2 anime every single day and this continued for like 4 years straight, so I must have finished far more than a thousand anime/manga in just those 4 years, after that I went coldfish for a few years, during which I perfectly forgot about every single one of them.
In all 5 of the manga I've finished reading recently, I realized either halfway through or at the end that I had read through the entire thing at least once before.


I've been through the exact same thing


start reviewing them


I don't forget anime I've seen unless it's absolute trash, and it's very rare for me to watch trash.


I mostly forgot Rosario+Vampire after watching the anime in January, a week ago I started reading the manga where it left off and realized I forgot so much. Then gradually over 20 minutes I remembered it all. It was just stored away.

I do not know if others already commented on it, but this page is quite simple and more than changing photos to "anime" style is a redesign. It's okay to hang out though.
It is in Japanese but it is only to hit the big button: https://h5.tu.qq.com/web/ai-2d/cartoon/index

That's Chinese, and it requires a Chinese VPN or an IP which isn't explicitly listed in a non-China country


I don’t care about ai art but it makes “artists” seethe so I’m all for it


>t it makes “artists” seethe
No it doesn't. The current "best" AIs are one-trick ponies and needs more user-end tweeking and expensive hardware to pull off even remotely consitenty.
For every fappable machine image of huge nun boobs that took 2 hours to generate, there are 300 that were too ridiculous to even bother saving.

Any animes similar to welcome to the NHK?
It doesn't have to revolve around being a hikikomori, but i liked the theme of a succubus wanting to save a boy

Genshiken is kind of close

Genshiken is 10/10 manga/ani yet it declines as it progress. The first part with original crew is the best and it get worser as the Fu-joshi takes over the story. It's still good, but at that point I only read it for Madarame.

Yet, genshinken focus more of otaku culture rather than "succubus saves boy"

Denki-gai_no_Honya-san is another otaku anime i like. But it's not dark at all. 9/10

Kuragehime - Fu-joshi shit, it was decent. 6-7/10

WataMote: can't remember opinon about it, ok i guess

for real, try Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei 10/10
Might not be what you looking for but there's nothing as nhk in ani world. maybe manga idk

Kaiba 10/10

Not guy you responded to but thanks for the recommendation, delved down the rabbit hole of works by Furuya, Minoru. All the characters particularly in Himizu and Wanitokagegisu are relatable in some form, especially saitou in the latter. Reccomend himizu and wanitokagegisu if you're suffering with depression/loneliness. Unsure why the low ratings for these works reminds me of other hidden-ish gems like homunculus.

>i liked the theme of a succubus wanting to save a boy
Ano Hi Mita Hana is like that. If I'm not mistaken the main character is a shut-in too.
I read Saltiness/Saruchinesu a couple of months ago. I probably read all of Furuya Minoru's works. At least all translated to english.
