>>34409>I wish there was an episode where Sato gets addicted to online message boards but by the end of it he realizes there's no escape from normalfags/douchebags on the internet or something like that.
I would rather see him realize that even some of his own fellow losers online are vindictive assholes that just make his life worse and bad company, but trying to post online only to find out you're in a farm for normies to gawk at is also realistic. >There's quite a few anime that mentions 5ch, futaba
Futaba, I have never seen it mention in anime, I remember talking to a Japanese person online and he said it's pretty obscure and for a niche crowd, and I've lurked it before and know it's pretty slow, while 2ch was something practically everyone and their mother used. But the same is said for Niconico, otakucentric and not the go-to for your Japanese normie, but still huge and influential.
I wish I saved the screencap, there was a scene in Joshiraku where the characters were afraid of making too many ass jokes and it would show fake-2ch screencaps of people calling them "that ass anime", and there was a show from the 00's where the mona SJIS art cats showed up in one episode.>Paranoia Agent also mentioned a made up site similar to 2ch in their suicide episode; must've been a real problem in Japan in the 00s.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2channel#Crime_announcements>4chan (like Digimon Adventure and Witch Academia).
Shit, really? LWA might make since since I remember /a/ having a hand with its crowdfunding after the first short back in 2012-2013. Digimon is a show I loved as a child and don't know how to feel about 4chan having a mark on it 20 years later.
I remember in 2013, when Watamote was being collected into tankobon, they advertised it as being "popular on the overseas version of 2ch", aka 4chan.
