I miss old anime communities. Used to be many of them. Now almost all are gone or abandoned.

*Things that determine what things you have access to, determine how a subculture develops.


I was never part of a community, even in loose imageboard type communities i felt more like an outsider, and I'm too paranoid or just antisocial to really engage in a community overall, no matter what it's about. Also I get dumber and careless while the others seem to get more hardcore.

I think there is enough space for high functioning autists, tryhards, the real of the real etc.
But I'm mutating to a lowfunctioning sperg that can't even remember names or events of Anime or Jap stuff I'm still into while others seem to be even more and more experts.

Think it's time to stop and embrace the solitude.


are you me? literally me


Fan service has always been a huge part of anime. After all the demographic at one point in time was young Japanese men.


I miss the old days of falling down rabbit holes of obscure websites simply by googling a topic. Before the internet was ultra-commercialized I used to visit dozens of different websites a day for just one topic. But now using the internet in the 2020s to interact with real people on niche topics feels like turning on the TV in the mid 2000s hoping for quality entertainment.

If I start cussing in English in real life, a decent chunk of people will understand and be displeased with me. If I start cussing in Japanese in real life, nobody will understand and thus will not be displeased with me even though I'm cussing as hard as possible. That alone is reason enough to suppose that Japanese is superior and that I should learn it.

Any goals for 2023?


Found this the other day, feels like I'm actually making progress.


Read a book on Japanese history, all in Japanese. Shouldn't be that far away for me.
Why not anki instead?


I am sort of stuck at a certain stage in learning japanese, I can get an idea of what a japanese person is talking about with a little context if I don't know the words exactly, I can get through say a japanese food review or something similarly casual in japanese and not have too much of an issue. I think my biggest problem is lack of vocabulary


for now theres only 1 % of immigrants in japan but there could be more next years. I think it is problematic 1nd will degrade japan. who agrree?

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.

Higurashi, Umineko, Ciconia, RGD, TRT, etc.
Have you read all of their works? What did you think of each of them?

Rosa is one of the best characters in the series. You got offended by the child abuse, didn't you? You sissy.

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.

I had it on tv some month earlier. Good stuff.

>about edgy teenagers oneuping each other and dating whores.
>Columbo, 1968
>about an old bumbling policeman with a lazy eye who pretends to be retarded to outwit famous and rich hollywood normies who look down on him.
yes, yes it did.


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.

Erica, another Witch. There are 4 Ericas.

It's another reason why i love it as much as i do. Besides being melancholic & cute. Sadly there is only two volumes. The rest from the author has great art, but nothing that stands out as much as this too me.
