What one?


Kind of surprising, still not sure what's unintutive about it, but I've experienced it a few times as well.

3. They're all getting quite old now, which is making me rather depressed.


Only one cat currently.

Same. Although two of them just can't seem to get along and constantly fight and try to invade each others spots


none, unless you count the raccoon that likes to hang out next to my garbage bin.


One bird, used to have two but the other died a few years ago, sadly.

Everyone hates people pluralizing anime as 'animes' or manga as 'mangas', but I see comparatively little push-back to the pluralizing of other otaku-culture loanwords in the same way. How do you feel about words like 'lolis', 'tsunderes', and 'otakus'? What about something like 'boorus'? Are they acceptable, or should their usage be discouraged?

I pluralize it as aminays and mangoes.


Oh, huh. So it's something like 'kissu', kind of. Well, I guess we can't pluralize kissu in text because it would look like it's pronounced like missus (Mrs.) at that point. Maybe.


depends. If the loanword is already invariable or a past participle like "cliché" or "pasta" it pisses me off, but other than that I don't see why loanwords should follow different rules. Down the line if they're worth using they'll be anglicized anyway so you might as well start now.


File:298bd64b029696980687f18a18….png (1.85 MB,1066x1491)

There is nothing strange about "animes" if Japanese need to follow the same rule. アニメ itself is a loanword, they'd better respect the Anglo plural rule and use アニメス instead.
Clearly, Japanese showed no respect in the first place, so our appropriate response is to also use our own rules even for Japanese native words.
So yes, adding s to every of these words is not only right, but also the right thing to do.


It's a shortening of animation, so it shouldn't have an s at the end

Anyway, there's a ton of sequels and continuations and remakes this season, yeah. I don't really look far ahead because I don't want to get excited for something that's far away. It's mental torture.
Mew Mew New is getting another season next year, I guess. I don't know much else and don't really care to know




I want to watch Do It Yourself!! for the educational value.


And Bocchi the Rock! because it has very good luck. Cloverworks SOL and the same name as the wahaha muffin.

Sono Bisque Doll got me thinking... does Kissu have a favorite cosplayer? Do you even follow any cosplayers (that aren't just ecchi ones, you PERV)?

I'm a big fan of SeeU. She's really cute and her outfits are pretty impressive.

I first heard of 4chan watching Gamer from Mars videos about '10 crazy 4chan pranks' I think they were called I remember seeing these videos and thinking that 4chan was this magical place where you could say anything you wanted and get people to do what-ever you wanted and it wasn't as good as I thought it was but I still enjoyed being able to say why I liked with complete anonymity and I became interested in anime and manga and gradually I started using 8moe and other chan-sites

It's a long time ago. I was on a website with flash videos and flash games and there was a loop of some guy humping a piece of text saying 4chan and people were talking about "this 4chan guy" so I tried to find out who that was.
Can't remember the name of the site. I've looked, but even using archives I'm not getting anywhere. It was a pretty obscure flash site and not close to one of the bigger ones. I just kept finding weird sites on the internets.
Searched for 4chan due to that flash loop and got to the frontpage. Being 12 and a naruto anime newfriend I went straight to /a/ since it was the first visible board in the list. Of course it was a complete disaster for the rest of my youth, but I have no regrets.


Found Pooshlmer first actually, although I knew of ED and vaguely of 4chan from someone at school, it just didn't mean anything to me at that time. I was really into Pokemon ROMs because it was all I could play on my mediocre school laptop. From there I got into Touhoumon and there was a dedicated thread to it on there.


I came to 4chan in 2015 because I was a edgy, depressed, and racist and among those crowds on the internet /pol9k/ was the cool place to go to complain about the refugee crisis and being an insufferable loser. I think I stuck around after removing that part of my personality and permanently quitting those boards because it was the best place to talk about paradox games (even though /gsg/ has always been one of the worst corners of the site) and because I liked the contrarian/elitist/indie tendencies of /mu/ and /v/.
I don't even get nostalgic for when I first stared using the site because all the boards I went to were terrible in every way


File:165395232642.png (341.98 KB,730x1370)

My first chan ever was Hispachan around 2016 then I learned English and started visiting 4chan, Wizardchan, 8chan and many other IBs though Hispa was always my main board. Now Hispachan is dead and I feel like I don't have a home anymore.


any good hispa memes? board culture?

Why is it that in anime productions, people remember the names of studios better than they do the directors, teams or top level staff?
11 posts and 4 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


anidb has basically everyone that's worked on it


I kind of agree but Shinbo is a pretty bad example of this. He has been a household name for otaku for over a decade.


Of course, but that requires looking it up, which is usually "read once and forget" if a name doesn't immediately ring a bell. Flashing creators' names in viewers' faces every episode during the OP/ED is basically spaced repetition, which tends to stick much better.


Same reason people know labels better than (non-hip-hop) producers and mixers, and publishers are better known than editors.


File:philspector.jpg (348.29 KB,623x1920)

The reason being that most people don't hold any true vested interest in the things they obsess over? Anybody who really cares about music usually knows the names of producers like Steve Albini, Avicii, and Trevor Horn.

No, I think the real reason is that Western scholars don't take gook artists seriously except in the fields of cinema, music and literature. Video games and anime need a few more decades to catch up.


Do you think these spooky videos are faked?


File:1422207013149.png (342.34 KB,412x373)


I thought this was going to be about ghosts or something.
First one is real.
Second one is definitely a production meant to tell a story by using specific camera views and angles for atmosphere instead of accuracy.
Third is fake.
Fourth is another example of using camera angles to give suspense and emotion instead of how somehow would actually record something if they were under duress.
Fifth is fake, for, again, specifically using angles people saw in movies.

Found a nice online DAW that lets you mess around with audio using node graphs.
Finding that it's impossible to export anything you make on Firefox because it uses a broken version of the WASM FFMPEG(or maybe it's something else) so I've only been able to get it to be fully functional on chrome.

Have you ever discovered something you weren't meant to or found any sorts of real life easter eggs?

Just recently I discovered an unannounced product by looking through the published manuals on a certain company's website.


Patreon used to have a link to a "sitemap" tucked away at the bottom of its homepage, where you could view every patreon page and every post all indexed in a huge directory structure. When you clicked on random pages you would see mostly $0 pages for some guy's random art project that had zero appeal to anybody. Sometimes single or double digit dollar pages for those people who have somehow scrounged up some followers who probably know them in real life anyway.
If you visit patreon's homepage using the internet archive to go back to around 2020 you may find some partial archives of it.


File:[SubsPlease] Utawarerumono….jpg (166.87 KB,1280x720)

Not really. Sometimes I like to look at files in games when someone releases a tool that lets you do that, but I'm not unique in that regard


The admin controls to 1chan (the train website) were left unguarded years ago.
I respectfully let them be.

Pruning/splitting a reaction folder and deciding what the optimal size for it will be for quick access almost feels like deckbuilding in card games or something.


File:odyknms-156121351552799129….mp4 (1.38 MB,1238x720)

I did this a while ago. I just picked a mixture of random nice images and also ones that I liked.


File:[SubsPlease] Utawarerumono….jpg (139.81 KB,1280x720)

I had a /jp/ folder that turned into a /qa/ folder that turned into a kissu folder and then there's everything else in a different folder.
Well, I guess I slightly organize stuff I download from pixiv and such into "porn" and "cute".
Anything more than that is beyond me. I could say "I'm going to organize it later" but I think I should just be more honest and admit that it won't happen until if and when it becomes prohibitory, like the folder gets too big that windows can't properly load it in a couple seconds.


I used to have reaction images sorted by emotion expressed (and still do have some that way) but upkeeping it with every new screenshot became a bother so I don't really use it as much any more, except for when saving off of imageboards. Most images I have pertaining to specific series that I like more than usual are sorted by series and then character. I think that it doesn't really matter the size of the folder as long as you can remember the names of your folders since you can easily type->enter->type->enter-> your way into the folder you want.


not even our folders can withstand the changing times...

does meguca not count as an imageboard?


liveboards different from imageboards. My post said HTTP imageboard servers anyways to avoid the question you asked. I'm sorry that I didn't mention your favorite imageboard(it's called shamiko now anyways)

Interested what type of mouse-grip you use, or if you use an alternative style of mice such as the vertical or trackball designs.

Thinking about switching from a standard laser mouse to a trackball (like picture related) because my laser mice always fail in similar ways and I might get a better lifespan out of a different type of mouse. They also benefit from better ergonomics, not putting strain on the wrist. I'm concerned if I would be able to play games well on it.
46 posts and 14 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


just upgraded my trackball's bearings... and I learned that there are differing levels of bearing percision levels and the one I wanted was G5 compared to the G10 that I bought.

The issue with this mouse was the ruby bearings that come stock are low precision and you want better ones to get a smoother roll. Better percision smoother roll. I figure stock were G25 because I do notice an improvement but I'd want it smoother to get hand mouse level accuracy. Still, dissembling it isn't hard if you follow a guide. Had to remove ribbon cables and stuff.


Seems like G10 bearings in a trackball help a bunch. I wonder what it would be like if I modded it with G <5


Yeah, this is perfect. There's no reason why trackball won't do what mouse can't all while providing less wrist strain. Highly recommend it if you're willing to do a bearing swap with G5 or G10 ceramic ball bearings(requires working with delicate ribbon wires and tearing apart the underside to reach screws).
Con: Have to adjust to it and still adjusting, trackballs acquire debris which impact smoothness, requires a modification to be a 10/10 mouse.

and there we have it, back to roughly even with my mouse skills.
