How many imageboards do people use? I know I mainly use kissu for most all my thoughts, but sometimes there's things that come to mind that wouldn't fit here at all so I post it elsewhere.

no like update on mods or specific game news
i’ve been meaning to stop by /tesg/ to see what’s up the anniversary edition of skyrim years ago i used to go by /gsg/ because the guy who maintains Historical Immersion Project for Victoria II only gives updates and takes feedback from /gsg/

for other news kissu isn’t really political…


I use almost all of these imageboards : https://rentry.co/chans



Huh, this made me notice they have some duplicated names.

It's funny that one of the mods there said they were figuring out a solution to the vtuber problem on /jp/, and even asked for feedback regarding the matter. Almost a year later and literally nothing has happened since. Trying to discuss things that isn't either Touhou, or something that have a dedicated general is still near impossible.


Some select boards on 4chan and Kissu.

There are so many possible things to do in a day, how do you manage to narrow your choices down to just one?

I don't have the attention span to do one thing all day so I just do things in serial fashion in the order I feel like.


I just pick one using the Axiom of Choice.


File:[Serenae] Tropical-Rouge! ….jpg (150.35 KB,1280x720)

It's really hard to manage to do ONE thing. I don't know how people do it, heck I don't know how I managed to homework when I was a kid.
Maybe those website-blocking programs would work by forcing you to do something or be really bored


Choose activities that require action to do first and do them; if an activity requires a decent amount of preparation and could lead to overthinking, then prioritize a simpler one first to warm up to that, and to maybe think it out during the first activity.
Make sure these are done before doing something like sitting down to the PC or napping.


Just go with your gut. This also applies to general indecisiveness.

Which cultures have the healthiest or unhealthiest traditional food?
Modern diet over the world has generally become unhealthier thanks to American influence and larger food portion, but it's interesting to see the health factor of traditional food which is important in the formation of cultures.
For example, traditional Japanese food consists of mainly rice, fish, and variety of vegetables, which provides a good balance of essential nutrients, is low in calories, and doesn't contain unhealthy ingredients aside from high sodium.

>Could say that McDonalds is the food of champions
Is this not true?


My observation is that "more spicy food => poor quality of life", and the logical equivalence "high quality of life => less spicy food". Both are true from my examples. Poor countries without spicy foods isn't part of my concern.
And if you look at countries with largest coffee and banana outputs, most of them have low quality of life, so I don't know what's your point by mentioning this.


That's because of geography really, spicy food tends to come from close to the equator. Europe is of course fairly far north of that so didn't have much spicy foods, same with Japan.


Mediterranean style food is healthy! A lot of fish!


What's an example of a mediterranean style food?

Odd Taxi is getting a movie, and I'm not sure if I should be excited or skeptical.


probably a recap movie


It will most likely be one of those "alternate retellings", considering the director has said the ending will be different/he will address things that the TV ending left unclear.


I'd imagine it be something that more pertains to the main antagonist of the series, maybe. Either way really excited to see an original work seeing some love


I think it concluded pretty well, I'm not sure it will benefit from this. I'm definitely interested in watching it, but I'm not sure what else can be shown.
Seems like such a well-regarded show that it'll sell well either way.

I've been considering how this season has felt more like work for a bit of the anime I'm keeping up with. With that in mind I'd rather just be strict this season and focus on my backlog while only watching whatever piques my interest as something I'd want to keep up with weekly. Although a problem I've found is that stuff airing this fall looks pretty nice, so who knows how much time I'll end up with to focus on my backlog.

So blah blah blah, what are you looking at next season and do you have any plans for it that don't relate to what's airing?

File:[SubsPlease] Tsuki to Laik….jpg (108.68 KB,1280x720)

The season is coming to an end again, and this time most of my favorite series ended more or less at the same time...

Tsuki to Laika to Nosferatu was a nice surprise, based on the mostly lukewarm reception I wasn't expecting much but figured I'd watch for the Hayashibara-voiced vampire. It did deliver in that regard, of course, but I also found myself enjoying the story a lot. It kind of reminded me of Yorimoi a few years back, which had a somewhat similar premise. The ALI Project OP was the cherry on top.


File:[SubsPlease] Mieruko-chan ….jpg (126.35 KB,1280x720)

Mieruko-chan was another show that ended up being better than I thought. It kept growing on me over the course of the season and turned out to be not nearly as formulaic as it initially seemed, with a good bit of variety with the monsters and some surprisingly heartfelt stories. I also thought the thing they did at the end there was quite clever, when the episode started I was like "what? Are we back in the TV rip days?"


Ousama Ranking is enjoyable so far


dropped in the first 10 minutes. Didn't know it was a 2cour... maybe I should pick it up again

How to improve image stitching?
How come some (screencaps of) frames have a different brightness or color level even though they are all part of the same cut?
2 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


I've found Microsoft's Image Composite Editor stitches things together pretty well. I just use ffmpeg to take screenshots of every frame from the pan and them put them all into the editor to stitch.


>I just use ffmpeg to take screenshots of every frame from the pan and them put them all into the editor to stitch.
This is the way to do it, especially if you need to work around text, such as in the OP/ED if there isn't an NC version.

Also, that image/stitch is from Totsukuni no Shoujo, if anyone wants to know. Getting another OVA in a couple months.


Was going to say this. I've never been able to make a stitch as good as image compositor can.


What program? Photoshop?

different implementation on the same thing. I wonder if it runs slower than the other. I haven't benchmarked it and won't


This one seems to get slowed down much moreso than the other one. The first one I can spam stars all I like, but with this one, once I get to like 600 stars or so, there's very noticeable slowdown.

I have no idea, ill look at the clock and see that its late but the stuff I know I did isnt nearly enough to fill the time ive spent awake. I think I spend my free time doing nothing and a bunch of small insignificant things. A tendency to disassociate and retreat into my mind combined with easily getting sucked into the pointless makes the concept of time very confusing

File:Hikikomori,_Hiasuki,_2004.jpg (141.5 KB,1200x900)


Are there any actual hikikomori outside of Japan? This seems something that can only happen in Japan or rather a handful of countries, mainly asian. I'm a NEET, and I wouldn't be able to close my bedroom without my family freaking out and forcing me to open up. I don't leave the house very often but staying inside forever it's impossible. Also taking in mind you can't be considered a hikikomori if you're disabled or mentally ill makes it even harder to fit in the definition. Maybe this is why Hikkichan died while neet.moe still exists. But I'm actually curious if there's a true hikki over here and how's life going for them. How did your family react when you became a hikikomori?

There are zero hikkis without a mental illness. Sometimes I feel like teenage loners in the west romantize hikkis, and the lifestyle they imagine just isn't real for anyone.


if ur a hiki getting a job is the best thing you can do - any job


It depends if someone is a hikki by choice or by circumstance. Also, if someone is genuinely reclusive and finds great difficulty in social interaction, thrusting oneself into a job might be too much all at once.


I'd rather die.

File:ti-89.jpg (36.45 KB,600x600)


What's Kissu's problem solver of choice? Mine is the TI-89, non-Titanium. The Titanium, although it has a slightly faster processor, some graphing fixes (for functions that go to infinity, vertically, such as csc(x) ), more memory, and a GUI home menu, I find that the button layout is far inferior to the TI-89 which has a standard grid layout, whereas the TI-89 Titanium has a button layout where the buttons are set on a curve which makes data entry slower. The buttons also feel worse, which is an interesting feat to accomplish considering the TI-89 has mushy buttons. Unfortunately, my TI-89's screen is giving out. I think internally, there's connections from the display that don't make solid contact anymore, so I had to stick foam pads inside it so that the display would work. Anyways, because the TI-89 is a much more capable graphing calculator than other offerings by Texas Instruments, it also has host to a number more, better games on it, such as ports of Super Mario World, Ultima V, and DOOM.

Honorable mentions go to the TI-36X Pro, which is an incredibly versatile scientific calculator that is especially helpful because it has a program, with its own button, for solving systems of equations.

I’ve found less and less need for graphing calculators and more and more need for https://www.integral-calculator.com/
It’s been really useful for looking up integral techniques and checking your work, atleast for undergrad physics.
Otherwise I use desmos for graphing curves.


What do people use calculators for nowadays anyways?




But why an expensive calculator over just your PC?


Some people might prefer them instead? Certainly, the most common application is just for use in schools.

Do you think the global state of entertainment and media has an effect on the quality of anime? Like how in the golden pre-2000s era everyone loves there were a lot of animators into western nerd/film culture and maybe as a byproduct of how Hollywood itself or the comic market was shining at the time it played a role in influencing them?

Inb4 of course the global state effects Japanese anime it's global

I think that competition should fuel the need to throw funding left and right to stay afloat for the big streaming services. If Amazon or whatever didn't exist as a counter for Netflix do you really think they'd be that desperate to find new titles to keep people from searching elsewhere? Also in this case while it may be true that for the paying consumer it may be bad, the biggest winners that will reap all the reward for 0 cost are the pirates. So yarr, I'm gonna enjoy me some booty.


Also unlike exclusive theatres there's not really any travel cost or regional unavailability for streaming titles. (unless it's international)


Do netflix gives money to projects that won't be big blockbursters? Because if not they are just going to give money to big project and there is going to be less non-shonen animes that sell a lot.


Yeah, they do. I can't think of notable examples off the top of my head but from what I recall their strategy is akin to throwing darts and hoping that they hit a bullseye. I'm pretty sure if the platforms just played it safe they'd be sure to fail since one wouldn't really have any preferred platform as everything would mix together. Only one able to get away with that is Disney because of brand power.

Just how much potential that could be expanded on from the ending of this first season is amazing. I really hope that even just a fraction of it is realized in the future as this story could easily become one of the greats of all time. I know some people seem skeptical of whether the anime expands on anything, but with the studio having been created with the purpose of adapting this story it seems to me like there's a whole lot more to come.

Can't say I'm often happy; I'm just sitting here doing my usual internet browsing and otaku media enjoying. But at least I'm not depressed now that I don't have to work anymore.

I did however meet up with two old classmates of mine a few days ago and we ate pizza together which was nice.


Does /qa/ like audiobooks?
10 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


I've never listened to the multi-cast Doon audiobook they sell on Audible but I listened to the really old one from 1993 by George Guidall (you can't buy it anymore but it's on torrents) and thought it was alright.


I've been listening to the full cast version for a while. I think it's a really neat experience, although I think it would've been better had they gotten more funding to do every character consistently. Unfortunately, it's not very consistently voice acted by multiple voice actors, so sometimes it swaps back to the main narrator for voicing the other characters. Maybe with the success of the movie there'll be more interest in getting a new audiobook adaptation recorded.


I was listening to an audiobook while I was goin to sleep and it kept glitching out when I was dozing off.


I listen to a lot of books about maritime history and exploration and I never not laugh every time I hear the word "seamen."
