Would this board be better if anime discussion wasn't allowed? I like anime, but this board's so slow that having any actual discussion outside of the anime review thread or the cute anime character threads, is basically pointless. The world of imageboards needs a place for niche otaku discussion, but alas, no site caters to such interest. What with the modern day youth on this site, there'd probably just be a bunch of Vtuber threads to take all the anime discussion's place. What does /jp/ - Japan/Anime, think?


The board would die. There aren't enough people in the world, let alone on this board, that are interested in Japanese culture outside of anime and manga. I would love to be proven wrong though. I adore Japanese film, literature, and cuisine so I would be very welcoming of such a change.


>What does /jp/ - Japan/Anime, think?
I think being so openly cynical and critical of the quality on the content and userbase of the very board you're posting on is rude. If you want to discuss Japanese culture, that's swell and well, but you don't also have to speak ill of the guys who use this board in the very OP.
>having any actual discussion outside of the anime review thread or the cute anime character threads, is basically pointless.
Pointless? No. Learn patience. Many of us have been getting by fine with discussions taking place over the course of years. An antiquated thread isn't just a conversation, it is memory. A time capsule of what anime was years ago, what has changed since, and how we who have taken place in the discussion have changed. To be able to share your opinion on a subject many hold sentimental feelings for, and then to also reflect on the feelings you had about the same things years prior is an incredible luxury you can't find anywhere else besides oldschool forums. We're slow because that's how we like it.

Who are you quoting frend?


I don't see the point, the board being slow is kind of a positive thing since it means that you can make threads about whatever Japanese topic you want and they won't get bumped off by people spamming vtubers and idols within a day like on 4chad /jp/. We've had threads on Japanese internet, learning the language, cars, music etc. and some are still up despite being several years old. If you want to discuss something Japanese besides anime just make a new thread for it.


I felt the same way when I realized that 4chad's /jp/ board was really just a Touhou/idolshit/vtuber containment board.


It wouldn't be that bad if there was an /a/ containment board, and if we poached obscure posters from reddit. A chan mixes well with Japanese content since it's freer to discuss taboo stuff.


I like anime too and there should be an /a/ containment, provided /jp/ posting itself occurs on a regularly weekly basis.


> if we poached obscure posters from reddit
fuck right off


Reddit and chans have a lot of overlap, especially with a lot of strong chan posters moving to reddit, after /pol/ spilled everywhere. Disliking reddit purely from stereotypes is pretty midwitted.


I've used reddit. The people there are there own kind of insufferable, just like IMAGEBOARD users.
Oh yes, spew more memes, really helps.


But Japan isn't just one big animanga factory. Why must we narrowly focus on one aspect of its cultural output?


Japan itself takes great pride in anime and actively promotes it globally. You are free to discuss anything japan related here, the onus is on you to do so.


You're referring to the "Cool Japan" initiative and that sentiment only applies to things which foreigners find palatable.


2. yeah no shit they promote the things foreigners like to foreigners
2. They made the olympic mascots anime themed. The government actively funds anime production. It is clearly something they enjoy and wish to keep prevalent.


I wasn't disagreeing with you, in any case. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Really love Japanese culture especially now I'm in my 30s and appreciate life outside of Port addiction. Always been obsessed with Japanese kickboxing and martial arts. The best organisations were shootboxing, k-1 and pride. Since then I got distracted but want to start following again.

Read only 2 Japanese samurai books: book of 5 rings and the hagakure. Both essential reads. Especially hagakure. It's a collection of short histories and philosophies of the samurai from one area. The blood genealogy brings tears to my eyes everything I read that part. And the level of valour their philosophy led to is so refined to the point one part describes how you should try to get as far into the enemy line in battle because you'll look braver and everyone will respect you and also to always die with your head towards the enemy so there's no doubt you were moving forward.

And the stories giving examples of warriors deeds are awe inspiring. They see courage is the greatest sight humans can behold. Better than any beauty.

I want to study Shintoism and draw from it the core meanings to construct my own way of life and philosophy. It seems closest to pre Christian British religion so hopefully it fills the gaps.

A great source of interesting niche Japanese culture is Japanology on the NHK. They're 30min programs focused on 1 aspect of Japanese life from vending machines to mushrooms, to bonsai etc.

Also learning the language but only up to grade 2 kanji and such at the grammar. Need to quit internet again to spend more time reading and writing when I'm at my best.


Lone Wolf and Cub makes for great historical fiction…
