alot of love and hate opinions on this song but I find it endearing other than the obnoxious moans.
Sounds like something I would compose.

File:[SubsPlease] 86 - Eighty S….jpg (660.95 KB,1920x1080)

Finished up 86, it had some really nice scenery


This show is surprisingly good


File:[SubsPlease] Estab-Life - ….jpg (131.35 KB,1280x720)

It's alright. A neat showcase for the advancements in CG, but to me the movements are still a bit stiff. Other than that I was thinking that the premise kinda reminded me of a east-west Berlin sort of thing and then I saw this which all but confirmed it I think.


File:1507994003648.jpg (327.79 KB,1920x1080)

Maybe I have the wrong impression but this is something that I felt when in one of the few beautiful historic areas in my country. Surely people from all walks of life used to live here, some were probably pretty poor but they got to live in this beautiful area.

Now, the main occupants are tourists, old people with a lot of money. Even people from other countries flock here because it's beautifully built. I feel like it must be similar for towns like in that image. I may be wrong and maybe normal people live there too.

Wouldn't it be better if more places looked like that and you wouldn't need to travel so far and spend so much money and go to a place propped up by tourism? I assume it also doesn't lend well to modern industry, but surely things can be a bit nicer.

Its hilarious how you can get journalists to believe anything if you write a manifesto and do a major crime


it's far less than that
i remember someone on /pol/ convinced a journalist that he's going to ukraine to fight russians and all it took is a made-up story and a few twitter dms (it was published too)


I don't like when people refer to journalists as if they're this collective hivemind. Journalism is a profession, and there's different levels of professionalism within that profession.

What are /qa/'s favorite scores for anime and such? Are they mostly comprised of scores for older series or has anything recent really drawn your attention and favor as well? Or, do you even notice the soundtrack while watching?

Also I don't mean an anime with say 1 good track throughout the whole thing with the rest forgettable, but one where the music as a whole is good.

This is the one, that I always return to.
It's like my ears are walking up the stairs to an old room with all my favorite things in it.
Not just this song, but the entire OST.
Kajiura's works as a whole are excellent though; including some of the ones mentioned earlier in thread like kara no Kyokai or for Noir.

I made sour cream porridge for dinner today.
It looks and (probably) tastes like glue, but I like it every now and then. You top it with sugar, cinnamon, and some butter. It's also very filling.


I watch nice food videos on youtube and imagine I can taste it.

Those videos are pure torture.
If I had the money, I would travel to Asia just for the amazing-looking food there.

Made a huge batch of beef and broccoli stir fry so that I could have some later for supper but I ended up eating the entire thing in one go. I also had to use way more oil than I originally wanted because the broccoli just kept soaking up all the oil.

What are your thoughts on how a "Dino Friends" show would look like? To begin with, it would lack the kemonomimi aspect, but what else?


File:[SubsPlease] RPG Fudousan ….png (1.73 MB,1920x1080)

All I can think of is girls with big fat dino tails.


File:KF Northern White-Faced Ow….png (2.12 MB,2246x1674)

There already are some dinosaurs in Kemono Friends. There are many features that could be used like tails as mentioned but also things like crests and horns or you could also have it so that the characters wear a kind of dino helmet or hat or a dino onesie type thing so you can see the head shape.

I think the biggest issue would be colouration, the colour scheme of friends are based on their real counterparts but we don't have that with non-avian dinosaurs, it's all speculation aside from one or two specimens that they have managed to get some understanding of their pigments.


something like "the land before time"?


File:[SubsPlease] RPG Fudousan ….jpg (212.12 KB,1280x720)

In theory reptile girls can be cute, but it's really hard to compete with such heavy hitters as mammals and birds. Scales and stiff tails really don't lend themselves to cuteness or friendliness like big fluffy ears or colorful feathers. They can be attached to something cute, like Fa >>89984 but it's just there and doesn't contribute to it.
Still, "Dino Friends" could still be great. Also like Fa, the most common examples would probably be dragon girls


Yeah, my second thought was that it'd be easier to construct a basic clash of styles between mythological dragons and realist dinosaurs, about four main representatives of each group(archetypal) beside some secondary characters and maybe a neutral human observer if she's nice enough and maybe more semi-humans from the past, future or divine sphere. But I don't know enough about dinosaurs or dragons(which is the reason I came up with this particular idea) and maybe in the groups themselves isn't enough variety? But on the other hand, Cars exists and is a successful franchise.

Do you know how to play any instruments, /qa/? My family has a piano that passed from generation to generation which is almost 200 years old, so I had to learn how to play it from a young age. I took classes and stuff, so I'd say I'm kinda decent at it.

I tried learning guitar before too but I CANNOT do it. It just doesn't click. It seems very complex in comparison to just pressing keys. Of course I had to be bad at the one you can actually take to social gatherings and impress your friends.

tap dancing as a pitiful apology for my lack of dancing and instrumental ability


it is, and always has been, the piano


I used to be able to play cello but didn't continue it after elementary school. I do have a piano though so I occasionally play. I never took classes so whenever I do play I watch a synthesia video of a song and practice like that. I'd like to learn piano but I haven't been able to commit to practicing.


Violin or Koto.

It is the piano, or how Big B called it: the Stark-Schwach-Tasten-Kasten.

I can already tell this thread is going to go great.
If we want to gain an understanding of the vtuber boom that goes beyond calling them the spawn of the devil, we have to take a proper look at all of their characteristics and seriously consider what could make them attractive. Otherwise, you might as well dig your head in the sand.

First, the claim that they are simply LPers. There are a number of very important differences here: let's players don't put out songs, they don't go on concerts, don't go on seiyuu radios, don't appear in gachas, and, most important of all, don't appear in so many doujins.

So, why do they play videogames all the time?
First, a digression. You don't need me to tell you that when someone likes something, like say an anime, they often wish they had more of it. See: fanfiction, creating the content yourself. Videogames are a trivial way to pump out hours and hours of new content. The chat is key to the whole thing, they help set up situations that the vtuber works with to better entertain, a thing that is indeed a lot like regular streamers. But, you can see vtubers are far more character-centered than common LPers due to the prevalence of zatsudans and superchat readings to which thousands tune in to, in those streams there is no activity other than interaction and blogging. If people are attracted by them being good at games, that's more of a coincidental thing.

Now you may ask, what character? It's a real person. Absolutely true. Compared to a fictional character whose story must be written, the vtuber supplies their already existing story. The more unique parts of it are highlighted, as there is a charm in a fictional-sounding story being real, actualizing fiction. For example:
If someone, say, goes into an /ss/ thread and posts about how he had sex with his babysitter when he was 14, he's likely to get a standing ovation. Stories about your very real imouto are also likely to be well received. A relatively recent post in /ec/ commented about an artist and his failure to carry out his femdom fantasies. None of this is novel, it might be impure but it is what it is.

Forgot to make the very relevant point that for anime and movies, the lifetime revenue from merchandise always, without question, exceeds any potential revenue made from initial TV runs or movie tickets.


What's a "voice pack" for? Phone alarms or something?


Usually various scenarios to listen to. It's basically the same concept as the radio dramas that used to be popular before the internet


Those would be the "situation voice" merch. Voice packs are just the phone alarm type things.


I know there are anime voice packs for GPS systems as well, not sure if that is related.

It's like one of those supposed images of what things look like to someone have a stroke. Things are often vaguely recognizable, but the actual detail are completely nonsensical upon close examination. Words are often muddled and unreadable, objects are distorted and melt into one another, with only a vague resemblance to what something should be.

Throughout the course of human history, it seems to me that there has been a general trend of innovation and creativity coming from people who are able to focus, often to an autistic, self-detrimental way towards realizing something. Be it discoveries in mathematics, physics, or geometry, or discovery through general experimentation. At the crux of it, these figures often focused on solving something that they're fascinated by and want to understand better, or wanted to create because it solves some issue that they had. In large part, both creatives and intellectuals were only able to achieve their goals because they had some patron. Although it's clear that some amount of work is necessary to keep society from collapsing, modern society forcing everyone into individual roles and requiring that you be "productive" to survive seems pretty counter to human discovery and innovation, even if innovation has been exponential in the most recent decades and century.

It seems like the current time should be ideal for prospective innovators to find patrons. If only someone would set up a website to streamline this sort of activity. We could call it "Supporteon" or something because it supports the innovators.

>coming from people who are able to focus, often to an autistic, self-detrimental way towards realizing something
... and being from upper class who can afford to have free time.
Nothing has changed. Peasants and slaves in the past, minimum wage workers at present.
If any, it's changing to a positive way with the commodification of knowledge in the form of internet.


Wouldn't a scientist working for a company or at a university fall under that? People still do the things you describe.


There's a lot of opportunity to innovate in combining expertise in different fields as well as pedagogy.

What hampers creative output? First is because smart people don't suffer from the same difficulties and miss problems in the cracks. Second is because it seems like everything in reach has already been figured out, at least in lower levels of education. You also have to deal with the proof of expertise required for people to take you seriously. Third is because we have been conditioned to mainly see creativity as proficiency in the visual arts. Fourth is because you can be more productive if you only do what has already been done, so there is little incentive to solve other people's problems. Fifth is the recent trivialization of original ideas in favor of execution alone. Sixth is the use of these creative efforts to shame those that choose less "productive" endeavors. There are probably more reasons I missed.

The main issue for me is my ideas can't reach the audience it needs. I'm also afraid someone will take credit for my work. I don't want money. I just want people to acknowledge my worth.


>I don't want money. I just want people to acknowledge my worth.
The human condition.
