Actually, this is a project I should look into doing soon because I can use kissu as help and it's something people here could be interested in.
For those that don't know, Starlit Season (not Starlit Stage, oops) is an Idolmaster game that came to Steam, but only in Japanese of course. However, modding UE4 games, including text, is not terribly difficult all things considered.
There's no Sachiko or /qa/ girls in it, but Takane is in it and I kind of have a thing for her because she reminds me of Luna from the Lunar series (same creator).
I'm messing around with Monster Hunter Rise right now, though, so it wouldn't be that soon.

>programs to donate unused food from restaurants and grocery stores to food banks and shelters
I'm aware of these, but unfortunately I've also heard that there's been laws put into place that make this a lot more difficult, such as preventing food that's past its sell-by date from being donated -- not expired, just past the sell-by date.

That doesn't have much to do with food waste, after all, he is doing that to grow more food to make more money. Whether we waste food or not he will always make more money from selling more food, that's just how it is.

What are your favorite episodes or just interesting concepts from the anime? I thought that the idea of "Shrine in the Sea" was worth a thought in how functional a community where people are "reborn" and expected to take on the exact role of those who they used to be was interesting. Makes you wonder about the lives of the villagers outside of what's just shown in the episode. Such as if they really feel like they're who everyone else says they are, or if just having it being told to them their whole lives made them accept it.

How am I supposed to enjoy, or at least tolerate cooking? It takes so long, and you need to give it lots of attention. It's pretty obvious cooking was invented before recreation, so how are people doing it today when you can have fun instead?
Maybe it wouldn't be as bad if I didn't have to clean up tools afterwards, but I do. The only thing that makes sense to cook is huge portions that will last for days, but that seems to limit what you can cook reliably.

Don't get why people feel the need to angrily reply and shout at ignorable things they don't like when they can ignore it or humorously mock it. That'd at least be doing something productive with the topic instead of turning all talk about them into pissing contests. Like you'd think people would've learned to take it easy after all these years.

The labels exist because things sound different and every time an artist is inspired by another person's they need to give it a term other than ___'s style because it's demeaning to your own creativity if you call yourself 'just a copy of ___', but there's always going to be some excessive labelling.

Does anyone else think this is really stupid? I don't drive or own a car, but physical buttons and switches seem like something you don't need to change.
https://www.thedrive.com/news/41979/nissan-ariya-replaces-buttons-with-disappearing-touch-controls

The physical feedback from a button being pushed seems like something that you can't sacrifice for some lame "modern" design. Also, buttons are fun to push. Part of the reason of having a mechanical keyboard is the strange satisfaction I feel by pressing each button and feeling it on my fingers while also hearing a sound associated with it.

Okay hear me out. Is there such a thing as an slice of life equivalent in literature? I know there are a few books about the daily lives of people living comfy lifes such as Heidi or Anne of Green Gables but I mean it in a more anime-oriented way. The literature equivalent of K-On, Non Non Biyori or Yotsuba!&. Not only focusing on day-to-day activities but also pursuing moe in all its beauty. Something like girls messing around town talking about silly stuff, not having much worries. No drama or sadness (well, maybe some feels here and there).
Asking because I'm thinking about writing stuff like that as short stories. But is the west ready for such level of moe? Also some weeks ago in the Katawa Shõjo aniversary thread someone mentioned it having a highly western style. Well, I would like to avoid this and try to be more akin to the japanese storytelling style. What do you think? Is it even possible?

 No.83739

I'm not much of a book reader, but the only things I could think of that would be similar is stuff like the Babysitter's Club because it's famous. There could be modern stuff, but I have no knowledge of it. Everything I read as a kid had major events steering them, usually mysteries.

 No.83740

Yes probably. Off the top of my head, the series with the girls who kills slimes for 10000years, the other series with the girl playing a vrmmo with a defense build, and the other one with a girl who reincarnates as a saint and sleeps all day fit that description.

I guess you can probably find some similar stuff on webnovel and royal road too if you want to see a western equivalent but I dunno I've never searched.

 No.83776

I love microfiction because it is the closest to perfect you can get (For sale: baby shoes, never worn.) and you can experiment easily. I love BOFURI because the writer took it easy, wrote a small amount each chapter, and captured happy little moments. Apparently, neither I nor the internet can agree on what differentiates Eastern and Western styles. I think it would be good if you focused on understanding why you like the things you do and incorporate that into your work. Then you can develop your own style. You are already starting to do that by dissecting what makes something moe.

-

I haven't sorted out my motivation to write. I know that rereading my stories makes me really happy, which is good because barely anyone else reads my stuff. Maybe it is better to write for yourself than for validation from others, but it was a very lonely experience for me. I always had doubts that I was a bad writer, especially when people didn't want to even take a literal minute to read one of my pieces. People say I'm lazy and untalented because I don't write very much and because I mostly stick to being cute and funny. It hurts.

-

My style is to mostly write dialogue, make it natural sounding. When I brainstorm dialogue, I will imagine the characters lounging around and chatting, then boil it down.

I make it a point to describe as little as possible and when I do, to just say what it is. I don't like rote five senses writing, sterile evocative language, big words, needless description that leaves less room to for the reader to imagine the characters and surroundings. If I absolutely need to describe thoroughly, I pretend I'm gossiping, bragging, threatening, mocking, then convert that. This type of behavior isn't healthy, so that's why I do it sparingly.

When I'm being serious, I to try to write what I know that other people don't, or at least what I'm interested in. This is more important than world-building. Police in a Pod, Cells at Work, Uma Musume do not need much world-building because the details of expert knowledge is a world unto itself.

It took me about a month to come up with this toolset for myself and people don't take it seriously because description and world-building is much more important to them than me. I'm also worried that this system has made my writing formulaic.

There are many poems which describe nature. Or you could read song lyrics. Anthologies are great when it's about getting the feeling of one topic or object from different writings, there are some about every topic with many chapters being written in few pages.

Part of the reason for the effectiveness of mathematics in science is that science makes rapid progress in the directions where mathematics can be put to use.

I don't think there's any way to know for sure that we've modeled something exactly. It is possible to know for sure that a model is only approximate, though, for example due to the model becoming inconsistent when you extrapolate it too far. Modern physics is in such a situation.
