File:very sad and upset marin.jpg (345.49 KB,843x1080)


What the hell happened to rebeccablacktech? Why does it redirect to desuarchive now? I'm pretty sure it was working not too long ago. I wanted to search for something in the /mu/ archive and now I'm extremely saddened. Desuarchive for /mu/ only goes back to 2012.


I'm pretty sure this was discussed in the happenings thread when it happened months and months ago... RBT was going to die but offered Desuarchive to take up it's archives, so RBT got absorbed into Desuarchive.

According to bibanon it was dissolved and the stuff moved to desu:

yeah, nearly a year ago apparently


File:very tired girl.png (759.67 KB,760x839)

Dammit, they didn't absorb everything. Nearly all my time that I spent there is lost forever now.


You could try talking to the bibanon people on #bibanon rizon if it's still there. Maybe there's a discord, too, but I don't know what it is


nevermind rbt nyafuu is kill and even worse than that I'm still trying to recover from Yuki.la's untimely death.

Do you prefer 'tasteful' fanservice like in Akebi or more 'direct' fanservice like in Bisque Doll?
7 posts and 4 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I like tennis a lot or rather how characters playing it are portrayed.


My favourite fanservice is the kind that is at least somewhat creative/unique, whether that is indirect (eg. the ridiculously risque clothing many of the characters in Saki wear, without anyone in the series ever calling attention/reacting to it and otherwise seeming super innocent) or not (not an anime, but some of the more out-there sex scenes and battles of Satanophany come to mind), as opposed to super-generic lucky sukebe crap and the like. That would in principle favour Akebi-chan over Bisque Doll, but something about the former I simply just don't find the least bit arousing even if I can recognize the eroticism on an intellectual level (in the same way, say, as if I watched a gay ecchi series) - I think it is probably the art style, as I find that in general that tends to play a very large role in my attraction to 2D content. And while Bisque Doll does have some more generic stuff as well, the cosplay-based fanservice and, for instance, the near episode-long measuring scene, are unique enough for it to score quite highly with me in this regard.


I don't like the shiny zit-like highlights in more direct fanservice.



The girl freaked out in the background makes this go from kind of erotic to funny

How well can you stomach gore, be it animated or real? Personally it doesn't faze me at all as I've been looking at it on /b/ since I was a teenager.

Initially I misunderstood the question thinking stomach gore is something like unappetising pictures of food.


I can't handle anything detailed or up-close, it sticks in my head like a nightmare. It's not an empathy thing, I can handle seeing people die from afar but even though I'm not bothered it stays with me for a long time so I avoid it.

this thread reminds me of those "concerned parents" who led to the creation of ESRB


File:rei_vomit.gif (1.78 MB,540x405)

I was like that when I first started looking at it on /b/ many years ago as well, but it's something you gradually build tolerance over time. Medical professionals, morgue workers, policemen, etc must 'train' themselves like that too. However, there is something I still can't watch and it's self-harm, as that starts to get into a way more fucked up area and you think about your own body being involved and stuff. I can't handle disgusting garbage involving shit, piss and vomit either, as I have a strong gag reflex towards that kind of stuff. There was that "2 girls 1 cup" shock video which was popular on the internet back then and I had to close it shortly after it began or else I would've barfed all over my keyboard.

It's really good, it was one of my favourites last year. It's cute girls show in isekai.

I too agree, it was great.
Leadale this season somewhat reminds me of Slime300 but it's nowhere close.

Those articles from 2018 announce that Aoki Uru should air this year.
Considering that we did not receive any update for almost 4 years i guess it's maybe a dead project or maybe they will postpone it again later this year?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


Looks like it's been in development hell. Not sure I'd hold out any hopes. The directors work might have been too artistic to be sold as a blockbuster so they dumbed it down for an easy to sell cash flick. Things like that which ruin productions and set them into massive delays


uWu in blue


Wait, Gainax? I thought it completely dissolved and its remnants formed other studios like Trigger and whatnot. Is it a license holder or what?


To my knowledge, after the bankruptcy, like a like of companies it exists the same way Kodak and Polaroid exists: companies bought out but all of the talent that made them completely up and left.


I saw on #qa recently someone say that the project is dead, is that true?

Do you keep any plants? I have some spider plants and an aloe plant that I got from my brother recently. I think plants are good to have around because not only are they soothing, but indoor air is prone to stagnation and having oxygen factories in your house is pretty cool.

Are you going to eat the blueberries?


Ideally, yeah. That's what I meant by functional. Well, as I said in OP all plants are functional in giving us oxygen or a relaxing atmosphere I suppose.


File:[SubsPlease] Akebi-chan no….jpg (178.18 KB,1280x720)

Do you guys see anything cool here? I don't really k now anything about the plant market, but my mom would buy stuff from these guys every year. (not the website)


Thinking about trying to propagate my plant, but I'm kinda scared of doing it. I think I also need to transfer my plant to a new pot with new soil (their soil has not be replaced in over a decade), but I'm scared of doing that too. I'm sure these things would be good for improving the longevity of my plant, but I feel like these things could also quickly end extremely poorly with me inadvertently killing my plant. Needless to say, having a plant for over a decade makes me quite weary of doing anything that might endanger it.


Yeah, that sounds risky for a plant you've grown attached to. You could always buy a new one of the same species or something and manually assist in reproduction? Well, or just buy a new plant of the same species and plant that one instead.

What's /qa/'s thoughts on making a series more fan service~y to appeal to a broader demographic?

The best example I can think of is probably the Atelier series of games. Although the games often featured fan service elements like character outfit DLC, the games themselves were rather conservative in the appearance of the characters. However, with Atelier Ryza the main character's design was notably more... "appealing". Previous games featured younger girls with flat chests and frilly (although a bit short) dresses to Ryza with plump thighs, large breasts, hotpants, and asymmetric garters.

The main character in Atelier Marie was pretty fanservicey as well, so this is nothing new for the series.

And yet despite this that same author apparently thought the serial killer kid episode was super mature. Goes to show the maturity level of prudes.


I'm wouldn't be surprised if real human-like AI girlfriends/companions are first widely available as mobile games, as gacha girlfriends.
It makes the most monetary sense to me; the market is there and once investment into the tech is done the overhead will likely be very low, while the income reasonably high from lonely whales.

Androids will be the worst thing. Their skin will be made of noxious off-gasing synthetic materials, their consciousness will be erratic and manipulated by arbitrary updates, and their lives will be shortened by planned obsolence. The first few generations before stnadardization and legal ethics will be like looking at disfigured children with birth defects.


You know, I'm kind of surprised there aren't 2.5D girlfriend services. The technology is there, and there's probably people willing to pay enough to make it worth the time.

brb, starting the next multi-million dollar internet service that will collapse once they invent an AI that can do it better while also being available 24/7.

Sure, but before the ethics laws kick in will also be when the most innovative androids come for those who pay attention.

If one day you had to fight to defend the honor of your waifu against a decently built opponent, would you be able to?
Despite my delusions of grandeur, I am fairly certain I will lose to even a 15 year old. My only memories of school fights are ones where I was too afraid to do anything because I didn't want to get suspended and/or expelled. Then as I grew older, I started realizing how weak the human body is. Mostly due to all those rekt threads on 4chan...
I don't understand how people can take part in fights, the human body is so weak. (Well, of course, if not trained properly.) Take a hit in one of the many critical hit areas of the human body and you could possible die or worse; turn into a vegetable.
Hence, as much as I despise myself for having to say this, I for one could not fight to defend my waifu's honor. I am simply too pussy. Gif related will be me.

Waifuists, they are a blight on society that needs to be removed.

Anyone that wouldn't kill those that insult his waifu has not a shred of dignity.


The anime's moving pretty fast...


from the synopsis I thought this was some silly comedy anime but this kinda makes me not watch it...


I would gladly die to defend my waifu

Are you nearsighted? I am. It means you can see stuff fine when it's close, but it's blurry as it gets distant.
Were you nearsighted before you started spending so much time looking at a screen near you? I wonder if there's a "cause and effect" thing going on.
6 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I'm near sighted and sensitive to light. But that shouldn't be a problem if I don't want to become a hunter or a pilot.


File:[MoyaiSubs] Mewkledreamy -….jpg (204.03 KB,1920x1080)

>I can't read it and it's blurry af
How blurry is a fuck? Is it more or less blurry than hell?


No, but I have glasses for astigmatism.


File:[Ohys-Raws] Mewkledreamy -….jpg (453.88 KB,1280x720)

I too am nearsighted. Last time I checked my right eye was slightly worse than the left. Got prescription glasses and now when I take them off I think my sight is worse than before. Or maybe I just notice the blur more because my eyes are now accustomed to see without blur, if that makes sense. Have been trying to not wear them when not looking at a screen but I'm always looking at a screen.
I think that's one of the causes as well, for my nearsightedness. Just learned recently (after 20+ years of writing with the paper 5-10 cm from my eyes) that I'm supposed to write sitting straight up, which in hindsight is pretty obvious now.


File:pondering-01.jpg (67.25 KB,666x463)

a fuck is quite a bit blurry but not that much. A iota above the metric hell, but not nearly as much as a literal imperial heck

What kind of house will the /qa/ mansion be?
8 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Kissu Apartments! We can all be wide there


Maybe it was one of those scenarios where someone said something jokingly but the language barrier prevented the listener from realizing they weren't being serious and so continued using the word incorrectly. It's pretty common to hear of people who are learning a new language misusing some word, so I think this explanation makes a fair bit of sense.


Looked it up because I was curious, and it kind of ties into that other thread about how using French words makes you sound sophisticated. Mansion was originally a French term used for a home/permanent abode, but sometime in the mid 14th century English lords started using it to refer to their primary residence. So eventually the previously French word for any home became an English term used for big houses.

Also it appears that it's still somewhat common in the UK to refer to upscale apartment buildings as mansions, probably where the Japanese borrowed the term from.


According to Wikipedia, at least, it was initially used by property developers to make places sound fancy, but it was overused/misused so much that it simply became the standard term.
