I really like animes with lolis and I don't consume lolicon hentai nor cp. I'm also not sexually attracted to children. I probably never matured, I think. AMA

Also, loli anime recommendation thread. I start with three animes that, in my opinion, have good plots, character development and they're comfy.

It's a shame that the animation art style deteriorated (in my opinion) for season 2.

I just finished that, it's great. The final episode in particular is very nice

Does anyone watch entertaining japanese virtual youtubers? Not the generic moe, cash-grab ones that use games as an excuse to yell like Twitch streamers but ones that actually have content and entertaining videos

That's not a comedy trope though.


Some, but I am not going to say the names because they are small channels and I am tired of gaijins ruining them.


Ai Kizuna is the only one for me.

In one anime there is a person who is called Friday - Monday. He is synonym of evilness in the serie.
But 7 years after watching Madlax, now I got something a have my own interpretation.

Friday - Monday - means five days per week. Everything that bad happened in my life was in these days - from monday to friday. nothing bad happened in saturday - sunday.

So the creators of that anime did great job in naming evil person like that. At first I was watching the serie I was laughing because I sound funny to hear that someone is called ,,friday-monday"

but now its not


it sound*

Safe to walk around
Nice scenic walks
Housing actually affordable and not NYC tier jewed up
Clean and comfy

Too bad western and azn normies are flooding the city now.

I'd love to move there if I could.

The idea of staying up late playing vidya or watching animu, crammed in a small apartment as just one more body in a metropolis with 14 million residents does seem quite cozy and appealing to me, to be honest.

Given the otaku/hobbyist culture in Japan, it definitely seems like a great city to NEET in, especially in the context of what the wizzies >>29056 and >>29360 said.


Miyjajima's deers are like pets though. You can pet them and they're cool.
Yesterday around 11pm I looked outside a window of my hostel near a bridge over a lake close to akihabara station and the street was completely empty.
Tokyo's overrated by Normans coming from some shitholes and spamming their social media with their stupid "observations" on the crowdiness of the city. They go to roppongi or some other night district and then spout generalising bullshit ""OMG Tokio is so busy during the night!!!,,. It's all an overhyped advertisement.
The thing about "gaijin spot" is bullshit too. (On a Tokyo local train)I once on purpose took the middle seat of an empty 3 person sitting space and 2 people sat beside me anyway.
Tokyo was the only place where I saw a kebab bar. It's also the only place where I saw so many muslims. In Asakusa especially, and ueno. Curry center. Some hostels there(and in sapporo) have "Muslim friendly" food or some shit.


Good luck with the renting (wish me luck too pls).

Talk about Touhou here. I think the OP or something. It's been three months. We've all talked about our favorite characters, so what's your favorite part of the fandom? Do you like the setting the most, the characters the most, the lore the most, the music the most, or, like me, do you just idealize the series like I do?

What are you doing right now to enjoy the series?

>be "ready" or "worthy" of these characters if I ever die and go to gensokyo.
What characters specifically?
I can somewhat relate to that.
I like Suika, but she'd probably consider me to be a wimp.


>Just came back here to say I live for Touhou
You and me both, brother. Looking forward to Touhou 17.

There is to be a new game coming out. Willy beast and weakest creature it is called.

You dpn't get to Gensokyo though death.


>Meanwhile I'm lazy , can't study for shit , and talking to people doesn't interest me

That's literally canon Reimu. She borderlines hikki sometimes throughout Zun's writing and doesn't bother to even remember most peoples' names. She's merciless in the games because she'd rather be getting drunk and passing out instead of working and just wants to hurry back to bed. Marissa likes these dependent types because they're less likely to call her out on her own flaws, and also because she sometimes goes big sister mode. Most people don't realize this. marisa luvs u for who you are and will hang out with you anytime.

Can we take a moment to discuss what is one of the best anime out there: Hajime no Ippo?

This anime managed to inspire me and pump me up because the main character, Ippo Makunouchi, is the classic outcast loner type. Shy and diffident, small, submissive, gets bullied, but is a good guy deep down, very caring and generous. He's also hardworking, which I definitely can't identify with, but it is something I admire. He has a good reason to be hardworking, to support his single mom who is actually not a bitch or anything which is probably why Ippo is a good dude despite his meek demeanor which probably stems from the lack of a strong male role model because his father died young. Although I have a father, he is not strong nor a role model really so I can identify with this. Ippo has no hope for a bright future, just getting locked into the path that his capitalist society has determined for him due to economic conditions: continuing to help his mom run her fishing boat business. He has no other skills like charm, confidence, or assertiveness that could make him successful elsewhere anyway, but then, he has his fateful encounter with the sport of boxing.

This show doesn't try to delude anyone, basically normies in society will not like you unless you are useful to them, unless you have high social status, they will not respect you. I have always resented this fact about the world because I have no desire to engage in the social games of exploitation that normies have to play to climb the social ladder, or the stupid peacocking to pretend I've done it better than I really have, or any of the dumb normie bullshit in consumer society, but what this show does do is a provide an almost magical path, one of honor with simple and fair rules and methods of determining status, and that status is accepted by society at large.

Martial arts has a vaunted history in our society because of its massive usefulness to society since even before the dawn of civilization. It is truly primal, evoking the savage animalistic ways of determining dominance in primates like chimps or baboons. With the dawn of civilization it was also venerated because strength brought peace and prosperity and the warrior class assumed its role as the nobility the next step down from the priests and kings who rule the people. Even to this day, a warrior's strength is still respected. (Actual war though in modern times is so fucking disgusting I want nothing to do with it.)Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


I feel like the oxygen in my brain is gone just from reading this post.


>Go to a martial arts place for 3 years
>Made 0 friends and no one talks to me
>Everyone who knows I do martial arts still think they can beat me up because of how short and skinny I am

Ipo actually inspired me to do martial arts even though I have a chronic illness. But you're mistaken if you think you'll be respected by normies for doing it. The only time they'll respect you is if they do it themselves or you get famous from it. But even then, mma fighters, boxers, etc still get abuse.

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.

Just do rewatch sessions. From time to time when i cant find any new decent anime to watch i just pick one of my favorites and rewatch it and when i got a taste of it, because i always recognize how much i missed out on shows, i just keep going until something good is releasing.


1 - Writing a review of the show after you've viewed it helps.
2 - I don't know about you, but after I watch a show and then 'forget it,' I tend to have a 'fog of war' kind of memory when I return to it. After a few episodes, it's like my brain can surprisingly dig up the rest.
3 - Don't feel sad about the food you've forgotten, feel glad about the nutrition it's given you.


very wrong, unimportant detail can stay vivid yet important information is lost all the time, the brain is not nearly as productivity oriented and efficient as you seem to believe


I forget anime that I didn't enjoy enough to remember, so should you.
