File:[SubsPlease] Slow Loop - 0….jpg (285.5 KB,1920x1080)


Whenever I see the dishes made in these fishing anime it always makes me want to go out and fish something up to eat it... But then I remember that this requires actually going out and fending off armies of bugs if it's not cold weather and I feel disheartened and concede to just getting something from the local market. Is the rumor really true that fish tastes better when you catch it yourself, or would a pro-catch be around the same level? Also what anime have inspired /qa/ to try their hands at a dish?

File:[ASW] Yuru Camp - S02E02 [….png (2.66 MB,1920x1080)

Only really fished once when I was young so I can't really comment on that.

For anime though Yuru Camp is an easy example for me. I've made dandan gyoza nabe, the pasta soup thing where Rin broke the pasta in half, motsunabe, and kamo nanban soba. Hidamari also got me to make karaage since they basically gave you an entire recipe w/ instructions. I feel like there's one or two more shows but I can't remember them off the top of my head.


with my grandpa I finished 3rd in a fishing contest once. I had fished a trout. The first place went to a lucky girl who hooked her fish by the tail

>Also what anime have inspired /qa/ to try their hands at a dish?
I ate a lot of beef stroganoff after watching symphogear. I haven't tried cooking it myself though.


I don't have much experience fishing but I have a family member who catches fish sometimes. My experience with lake and river fish was that they tasted like mud. Are all lake and river fish like this?


Even without being remembered by this show, I would love to try all kinds of marine animals. There are many categories of food but all others are too light or too heavy. In thin slices, in thick slices, purple, red, pink, raw, from beautifully stacked cans or ready on the plate. It's exciting to eat them because they are so different to us terraneans.

You know those threads that go like "___ thread, bonus points for ___"? Well, not to brag or anything, but I've amassed quite a sizable amount of these bonus points over the course of my posting career. However, after all these years I still haven't figured out how to redeem them. Hell, for all I know they could have expired already.

What about you, /qa/? Have you redeemed your bonus points? What did you spend them on?


File:1641644666707.png (263.3 KB,560x896)

All my points were donated to the Hakurei Shrine.

It seems a little strange to me that the appreciation of Japanese stuffs here is limited to only 2D media and language, while all other aspects of the Japanese culture get no mention at all.
Even for foods no one seems to appreciate Japanese cuisine and snacks here and everyone seems to enjoy typical Western foods.

Why don't you appreciate these other parts of Japanese culture? Is it because you think Japanese culture is nothing of worth outside the 2D related stuffs?

How many people take the time to really even appreciate their own country's culture outside of its media?


File:k.jpg (267.97 KB,1024x768)

I don't like my countrie's culture. Hell, I don't even consider this country nor any other country on Earth as my home. I'm unable to identify with any place on the 3D realm.


My country doesn't have a culture really.


Your home country's culture is something you see constantly so it is just the normal, it's not interesting. I only notice the things that I don't like.


I like that getting too close to strangers ia almost considered taboo here.

Any space ventures by democratic nations are doomed to fail as the colonised planet would vote to become independent. It requires an empire to Colonie space and we only have two of those right now, the British Empire and the Japanese Empire. But then both of those are democratic too so it would not work.

Is /qa/ superstitious? Do you believe in luck?
2 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Good luck brings appreciation of your circumstances and a healthy optimism. Not sure what believing in bad luck does for you though.


File:concerned-01.png (91.01 KB,310x282)

with my luck if I believed in this I'd be even more unlucky


File:ee190ef2d76d3b823c56620cba….jpg (1004.03 KB,1200x1091)

The Law of Luck Conservation determines that the total amount of luck is constant in the universe.
The unit of luck can be measured by the equivalent money.
When you encounter a good luck event such as picking up some money on the street, you lost the same amount of luck as the picked up money. Similarly if you lose some money you gain equal amount of luck. Other types of events can also be measured with equivalent money.
That means if you have some good luck in a while, you will have bad luck after that, and vice versa.

Don't understand why LN authors feel the need to force isekai upon everything. Especially in basically fantasy stories in which the MC being reincarnated has almost zero bearing on the story or could have easily been rewritten, and thus made better, without necessitating any changes to the story at all. It just seems like a lazy crutch to rely on in an attempt to explain away a character's feelings instead of trying to think of a proper reason why a character experiences a certain emotional state. Like in this anime the MC experiences loneliness and feelings of isolation from being near the peak of the world's strength, and instead of realizing that such feelings could arise naturally in such a situation the author believes they need to somehow justify it through the fact that they were a loner in a past life. What really gets me about this, and other stories where the isekai theme is simply shoved in, is that aside from essentially their time as a toddler the MC comes off mentally as no different from any other character their age. It's just a waste of potential for molding an actual character and I hope it ends someday.

I feel my favorite setting is when there's something magical in reality. Just my 2 pennies.


Because it makes money and the current world we live in is a fucking hellscape that no one wants to live on. Why is this so hard?


File:[SubsPlease] Ousama Rankin….jpg (279.38 KB,1920x1080)

Because proper fantasy still exists and shows how well done a story made without any cop-outs can be. Right after watching Paladin I went to go and watch Ousama Ranking and its fairytale like quality sucked me in and the way it built up its characters was extremely refreshing. This stuff should make money instead.


File:[SubsPlease] Leadale no Da….jpg (118.71 KB,596x937)

On the topic of Isekai, when I was thinking about how it's nicer to have female leads springing up as a change I remembered something. That before the trend of having isekai harems was the big thing most of the older isekai were actually female lead. Funny how you can look at it as things reverting to how they once were.


>This stuff should make money instead.
But it doesn't so whats the point in your bitching.

Do you ever listen to music while watching anime or reading manga? A few years ago I listened to some japanese shoegaze albums while watching Yu Yu Hakusho and really liked it. Recently I read chainsaw man while listening to hyperpop and also really liked it.

File:1630462690659.jpg (99.97 KB,640x991)

I cant stand silence so I almost always listen to something when reading. I typically try to fit the music mood with the mood of the series. If you get the music right for what you're reading it really adds to the experience.


Nice. Are there any pairings you think go super well together? Like how some people say The Dark Side of the Moon goes with The Wizard of Oz.


>Like how some people say The Dark Side of the Moon goes with The Wizard of Oz.
I've always heard people say that about Dark Side of the Moon and 2001: A Space Odyssey.


locrian paired really well with blame! its not like I put that much thought into what I listen to when I read something.


File:[SubsPlease] Platinum End ….jpg (441.06 KB,1920x1080)

I could probably watch Platinum End with some music playing and enjoy it more. Because the way it uses its OST only adds to the pretension and ridiculousness of how poorly done the story is.

Where did your sense of humor come from?
2 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


No idea.


I never watched Seinfeild and my dad didn't let me watch the Simpsons(which is for the best it's awful). Instead I watched Monty Python, The Young Ones, Goodies, Black Adder and Red Dwarf.


Family, internet, TV and the suckiness of reality of life I guess. Humor is the major coping mechanism for life, after all.


mwaahaaa, the french.


I used to read alot of newspaper type comics, stuff like Garfield, Calvin and Hobbes, a British one I dont remember the name of. Theres also having spent way too much time on the internet from a pretty young age giving me a natural inclination to shitposting type humor though watching chowder and flapjack can also be blamed for that.

Why is it that when you move the skin around your bellybutton left and right, the bottom of the bellybutton stays in place. What's it attached to?


Umm. Your muscles underneath it?


Your navel is attached to your penis engine. It acts as an air intake that cools down your nutbladder when putting tension on the wiring behind your penis.


heh i will move karen's belly button around, if you know what i mean


the anus of course


Probably to the linea alba, I don't know for sure I am not a doctor

What does /qa/ think about the idea that your consciousness shifts realities? That without noticing it you could shift into a different version of the world, with there being no way to prove the past happened as you remember it its completely possible that our consciousness could shift into a slightly different reality in our sleep, this could manifest not only in memories over the same thing not lining up but the world as a whole feeling different for little reason. Maybe the idea of reincarnation takes root in this as peoples minds are shifted into a different form in a different reality upon death.

Doesn't >>82799 apply to indeterminism too? It doesn't mean there's no rules, it just means they're fundamentally unpredictable.
... Right?


on my fat cock, dork


I think it's stupid.

I think you are referring to a Boltzmann Brain or something like that. Which is also stupid.


I think we shift realities very easily and small things change that we don't really notice until its too late.
But despite that, we are still stuck in this wicked kali yuga.


Why do you think it's stupid?

How did /qa/ learn economics?

The hotel owner's ass was saved because of the fish merchant's debt to him. Imagine if that money weren't in his hands when the customer wanted it back.


Mostly from reading and listening to educated people talk on the subject. My high school course was completely unhelpful. It would only accept the most orthodox of capitalist views. So much as daring to imply the government do anything was shunned. The only useful thing it taught me was a bit about the Federal Reserve banking system.

>I never really got the point of the story but I did find it interesting.
It's a simple story about money velocity. The point is that money gets continuously recycled throughout the economy. It's most helpful to think about the same situation during a depression: rather than people spending money around, they're more likely to save what they've earned, which slows down the economy. Following the one story, instead of the hotel owner calling a plumber, they put their money into a bank, so plumber never gets anything and neither does the fish merchant.

Just got the game, do I need anything extra?


there are some cute personal mods to make your characters look like touhous, boats or genshins, but those are optional.

Was fun. Would play again, but I think 4 people would be better because the AI was a little tard...


Is that Kafuka? Very nice taste. I'll probably play when I'm up for gaming again.


File:fairies of light.jpg (488.24 KB,1920x1080)

They are optional in theory but not in practice.
