Seems like firefox is going for a more customizable/individuality feel with it's recent update.
Not sure who these slogans are catering to though.
Shame that the color schemes are all bad.

I think browsers have had stuff like this for a while, but I guess it doesn't hurt to bring more focus to it. There's been simple skins for decades now, perhaps most famously winamp. I downloaded Maharo after installing windows a few years ago and haven't managed to find the motivation to do anything else.
Does the firefox update give you any guidance on making new themes of your own with custom images? It would probably be best just to make one from scratch and I should have learned to do that years ago


I guess it's nice, but not sure I'll be using any of these new features.


Is this true? Do you see the world differently and create creations that stir the emotions in others?

Actually, I'm an activist.
I actively do not know how to remove this theme now.

How many words do you need to construct a mainstream social media site/forum?

Is the DIY anime good?


Discourse is popular, though I wouldn't call it mainstream. It's still a forum, after all.


File:[SubsPlease] Do It Yoursel….jpg (227.42 KB,1280x720)

I like it and the people in the kissu stream liked it. The main character (or least the main one in the first episode) really reminds me of Konata and the style is really nice and somehow nostalgic. It's quite relaxing. Maybe I should post my opinion in the seasonal thread


Does it come with the posts too?


"Please come post on birlchan.net/gays"

Hmm, that's 5 if you count the URL as one word.

What are some good anime/vns for escapism?

wincest stories


Dang, a lot of my favorites are full of strife and conflict. What's your opinion of stuff with sex scenes? I guess some of this stuff might have "all ages" versions, though... Hmmm...


File:__totooria_helmold_rororin….jpg (418.68 KB,1210x1498)

Does it need to be a pure VN? The Atelier series of games are some of the strongest escapism you can get, but there's a bunch of crafting and stuff and you won't get the best ending in the first playthrough. Some people stress themselves out trying to get everything the first time, but you're just not supposed to play that way. People really love those Gust games, myself included, because they're just so happy and SoL-like and you really do get immersed into the world.
Most of the VNs I've read have conflict in them so it's hard to recommend them for your purposes unless you're open to romance stuff which some people find really boring.


if escapism is what you're seeking watch Neon Genesis Evangelion


I don't think NGE is particularly suited towards escapism... It's a nice series but you need to be in the mood to watch it, I think.

How the h*ll do I fix my posture before I turn into a hunchback shogi player???


When your back and shoulders start to hurt a lot you will learn through pain.
In february this year I had horrible backpain and it lasted for weeks, had to take meds to make it go away.
Been sitting correctly since then.
So the answer is sit in the worst position possible until you get backpain.


You're supposed to exercise back muscles, but most of them seem to require machines or benches so I haven't done them myself. I think there was a thread about this on /qa/ somewhere...


Put your chair very close to the table/desk. When you have it set up like that, sitting up straight is the most comfortable position.

Been four years since we wrapped things up with bestest girl Neia, two since macrogenocide, now it's time for the Theocracy to finally get their game on. So far we have some Scripture deliberation and Nazarick workplace antics, it's a good start.

Ch1 part 1:
Translator's posts:

I expect there to be some sort of diplomatic tug of war where Slane and Nazarick compete to see who gets to win the elf king over, a mini cold war where anti-Nazarick factions try to forge an alliance without triggering an overkill retribution due to poking a random zombie once. Umu.

Also, the anime. It's premiering tomorrow.

File:1664549542998146.jpg (3.02 MB,1688x4164)

Nah, lmao, the confusion is totally understandable. The book states this:
>How lucky was she that she could realize such a dream through the simple betrayal and sacrifice of the Kingdom?
>She wanted to dance.
>She wanted to sing.
>The joy in her heart was overflowing.
>She was truly, truly overjoyed. Her brain felt like it could break from all of this happiness.
I take it Madhouse went "fuck it, why not" and decided to go ahead and let her do that. I'm still laughing about it. The series has its goofy moments, like that one onsen scene, and Renner's true face has already been shown many times, even in this season's intro. This is the moment where she breaks free from everything that stood in her way, it's all paid off, so while it's silly I don't find it strange at all. (Would've preferred they animated the chair force, though.)
Aside from that, all major events from the arc were animated. Thing is, without the books' narration that fleshed out the past and present of the world, I can see why something like Platinum Dragon Lord sweeping in and his connection to the Thirteen Heroes would seem like it came out of the blue. I don't believe the latter had ever been mentioned in the anime so far, while the former has only appeared like two times (one of them being exclusive to the first recap movie, lol). If you haven't read the novels then yeah, you sadly are being left out of the loop.

The Cyberpunk show is out apparently. Watched a few episodes. The action scenes aren't that great and the story feels a little bit too much like the game's but otherwise it's a decent show. Definitely doesn't feel like anime though, more like an animated Cyberpunk 2077 show. Which i guess is what they were going for.

I think her main prominence was more through the whole latter part than just the last episode. But, the reason she's probably a favorite for many is that in the anime with communication being a huge theme, she was the best representative for it. She did her best to hold together the remnants of the team and kept checks on David to make sure he wasn't overloading himself, and tried at every turn to steer him off the path of developing cyberphyschosis. In the end she did the best she could possibly do to help out all her teammates both physically and emotionally, and for that she's best girl.


She also had the most interesting/unique design out of all characters, I finished watching it last week and I struggle to remember how any of the other characters looked.

File:Cyberpunk - Edgerunners - ….jpg (286.78 KB,1920x1080)

My hope for this is that it raises the bar for what should be considered standard for action anime to more like what it used to be when short action OVAs were the hot thing. Maybe that's expecting too much, but it can't hurt to dream.

Is the 'Golden Age' of visual novels over? What was the last notable VN released in the last 5 years? I can't think of anything. I can name a lot of stuff from the early 00s though.

File:gaming kohaku.png (382.28 KB,640x480)

Yeah, as expected, they peaked in the mid to late 00s and early 10s. Pretty much all the notable and widely acclaimed VNs are from that era.

It probably has something to do with Japan getting demographically older and phones/mobage becoming more popular. It correlates with the decline of the Japanese videogame industry. Japan lost its dominance over the market ever since the PS2 era ended.


What's the cause of that sudden drop in 2021? Is that a pandemic thing or similar, or was the data just incomplete for that year when the graph was made?


Honestly 11-12 felt like the peak of a lot of otaku stuff. VNs are probably just the most notable


2021 was a partial year when the chart was made. Although, I can't imagine the pandemic helped as I remember some people commenting on stuff getting delayed.

During that time period, a lot of otaku media was intrinsically related to VNs. There were seasons of late night anime that consist largely VN adaptation back then. Even things that weren't based on VN had references to them. For example, some of the art pieces at the ending of Madoka Magica were done by artists from Nitroplus who worked on things like Muramasa.


File:Ore no Imouto ga Konnani K….jpg (57.91 KB,640x360)

>If you were on an imageboard back then you had the requisite PC to read VNs. What are percentage of the internet is phone users these days? 80% or more? That's a lot of people that can't read the majority of VNs even if they wanted to.

In Japan I think there was a shift over to using the PSP/Vita or tablets to play VNs. They are certainly more comfortable than sitting upright for hours.

There's a new season on the horizon, kissu. So that means it's time for you to sift through this list and find me the good ones to watch.

The purple haired girl, while I never liked her from the start, gradually started acting 3DPD (in my opinion) as the season progressed.


File:[SubsPlease] Utawarerumono….jpg (110.08 KB,1280x720)

Oh, that's a bit confusing. I would have just said she had a bad personality or something.

Oh, yes, for people that aren't reading my Utawarerumono thread I'll say that I was pretty happy with its first cour. It's far from perfect since they're adapting a long VN into an anime, but all things considered it's going fairly well. There's no way they were going to fit even 20% of the VN content into an anime with only 28 episodes, but all the major stuff has been included apart from one storyline which I uploaded in the aforementioned thread.
The 3D soldiers (and other things) are kinda crappy, but I can tolerate it.
Utawarerumon is woefully unappreciated and if you were to jump around every imageboard randomly it's unlikely you'll see any mention of the existence of season 3. That's life, I guess.


teppen episode 2 already came out, it's one of the best episodes. It turned out to actually be about a plot to assassinate a politician which was pretty funny.


shame, could have saved the series then


Yeah, those first couple episodes were so quick and stylish, it went from "Incredible for TV" to "good with cute designs".

Do you think Osaka's mom also made a deal to get her married and out of the house?


File:igfAds8K4x.jpg (538.19 KB,1971x1290)

Looks like konachan is split into a 'safe' version so I could use that, yeah. konachan does seem to have a basic quality control thing in place like danbooru. Looks good. Though, the benefit of something like gelbooru is that it's democratic with user scores, so maybe a combination of them would be best.

Thanks. I never thought of background tags, but it could help prevent images with the plain white background, huh? It would be great if there wasn't so much white in the images, like what I have going on here right now.
Though, this program does let you designate a folder for the 'background' image and in theory I could clean up the plain backgrounds with photoshop's magic wand tool so that the background is transparent instead. Takes a lot of time to through so many images, though.

It does work with the negative tags, I.E
"touhou -explicit" will give me touhou tags without the explicit tag. So I COULD use the Mewkledreamy tag. But, not all tags are appropriated applied at all times so it requires some cleanup.




If I recall safebooru is a thing too
and there is both wallpaper and aspect ratio tags too.
Its weird to think boorus are still used for non-lewd purposes


File:Grabber_Po8WshkdWY.png (23.73 KB,315x661)

Oh, now I remember simple_background.
And safebooru is great, too, I think most of these are already included by default in Grabber.

Don't apologise when you're in the right


well I wasn't trying to be funny; I like you guys most of the time but the puritanism is really off-putting some days.


It wouldn't bother me if it were only contained to a post or two. You're right that hyper-aggressive language policing is unconstructive and arguably outright harmful. But seeing that sort of language sprinkled all throughout the thread, and so aggressively at that (>>97153) leaves a bad taste in my mouth. At least to me, it reeks of "flyby teen shitposter who doesn't know nor care to know the site's culture".


I've been here since kissu started, and 4/qa/ since before Feb of 2017 before that.
I can't remain mentally stuck in the consciousness of a /jp/ poster from a decade ago, and I don't want to either.
Also, you're conflating some of another poster's posts with my own, although I am 97153.


Fair enough. Doesn't mean I have to like it though.
