What genre does /qa/ think is the most expensive type of anime to make? What would be the least?

File:[HT]_Hidamari_Sketch_10_(7….jpg (211.56 KB,1280x720)

I love the first season of Hidamari Sketch (good anime) and that was made on a shoestring budget.


File:1460872606040.gif (365.79 KB,540x540)

Well... Maybe it was made on a shoestring budget, but Hidamari had prime SHAFT behind it so that probably made up the difference.


hentai has a huge range of possible budgets while also being potentially very complicated to animate. Unfortunately it's often the least effort thing


I have noticed far, far less image maniuplation shit than in the mid-2010s


Hentai may sometimes be more of a passion project

Hello, friends. Would you believe me if I told you that the attached image is an edit? It does not exist! It's crazy, isn't it? You assumed there was a Mewkledreamy/Elden Ring crossover, but it's not actually real. This is the power of photo editing.
Photoshop is expensive, though, and these days you have to subscribe. I heard there's a way to bypass that, but this isn't the thread for it. I heard someone might have uploaded it somewhere, I think a bird was talking about it.
Anyway, where was I? Ah, yes. I think we should talk about photo editing to encourage more kissu creations since people might want to participate in the random nonsense people throw together here now and then.

Made a new Laura banner, and going to list what I did.
Cropping is and scaling is simple enough so I won't include that.
First thing I did was increase contrast and darken it a little bit because it was a washed out scene.


File:1iLpKbBqbN.png (131.59 KB,1139x530)

I had googled "aquatic font" and got this "Underwater Love" one that looked good.

This image is from before I decided to change colors, but you can see that I gave it a gradient and stroke in layer options.
I googled "hollow photoshop text" and found that you need to first rasterize the type layer...


File:Photoshop_5P9kOQ3kLq.png (72.17 KB,767x432)

Then again in the layer blending window thing, in the main Blending Options tab you can adjust inner opacity if you check the box here.
After that, uhh.. I guess the image was done?

File:waku waku.jpg (313.83 KB,1920x1080)


Last year had Odd Taxi and Mushoku S2 as really stand out anime, and this year is shaping up to be even more abundant with at least one amazing hit each season, with Bisque Doll being winter's; Spy X Family and Bookworm being Spring's contenders; Utawaremono III, Made In Abyss 3, and Shadow's House 2 for the Summer; Then to top it all off Chainsaw Man in the Fall with whatever else may air then. For myself I don't think there's been a year this packed in decades possibly. Is this a sign of good things to come?

File:[Commie] Bishounen Tanteid….jpg (325.77 KB,1920x1080)

>shaft is slowly returning
Aside from Bishounen Tanteidan what's SHAFT been up to?


New Madoka movie in the works, Magia Record final season, Luminous Witches (apparently its set to come out this summer but I feel like I first heard about this one awhile ago), they announced that they were doing a RWBY anime
Personally I'm only interested in Luminous Witches but they are definitely starting to make shows again after a couple years of almost nothing, even Bishounen Tanteidan on its own was enough to convince me that shaft is getting back on its feet after a losing staff and a period of instability. Give it a few years and they'll be back to consistently making shows.
Same goes to Kyoto Animation who actually had pretty similar circumstances, though instead of financial instability they had a crazy person set a building of theirs on fire. They still aren't back to making show after show but they did put out something last summer, it takes time for studios to get back on their feet after a big setback and when they do they start by walking instead of running.


I can tell some people ITT need a break from seasonals


Like who?


>Kakkou no Iinazuke is manga based.
So is Summertime Render? And Honuzki is LN based, what's your point.

How does Kissu sit?
16 posts and 8 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


On a cushion on the floor between two pieces of furniture. I rest my back or my side on the soft furniture, while my low table is in front of me, where I can rest my right arm. Keeping space behind the back can be useful when I feel like reflexively moving the upper half of my body; it doesn't make me as tired as sitting for 5h+ in one chair, and it doesn't hurt my back or shoulders even if keeping a straight back is tiring. Seiza is hard to maintain so usually I take a form of reverse tailor style sitting. If I'm on an office chair, I put on the lowest possible seat height.


File:3bca4e8a9767cf2b2f3c132258….png (355.51 KB,775x820)

Hmmm? It's really easy for me. I pretty regularly sit that way in my chair for upwards of 30 minutes or more just from casually switching sitting positions every now and then.


File:cb2df07cf4bb250f52a93fbfc9….jpg (507.76 KB,830x1000)

It's often the case that Japanese women sit like this while Japanese man with higher standing sit cross leg.
If you understand anatomy it's pretty natural. Women have different bone structure so Seiza position is not uncomfortable at all for them.

File:pure and platonic.png (75.81 KB,390x240)


So there are four main different types of 'love' in my opinion. I think everyone knows about "Platonic love" and "sexual love", but there are also some that are 'in the middle' that are not talked about often, not even in the color wheel theory of love: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_wheel_theory_of_love and that is: love with pseudo-sexual characteristics. It would be a mix of Eros and Storge in this case. I have dubbed it "Erostorge". To put it simple; it means you want to kiss, hug, cuddle with the person but not necessarily have sexual relations with them. I feel this type of love myself to some characters I get emotionally attached to and I always wondered if my brain was 'wired wrong' or something, because this can't be evolutionary beneficiary. It is similar to Platonic love but with the added detail of actually wanting to be romantically involved with the person without having s*x with them.

Do you mean you're obsessed with lust and hedonism or that you have some sort of intense loyalty to the ideas of lust and hedonism? Either way is fine as long as you don't attempt to usurp the meaning of love with lust or hedonism.


feeling extremely lustful towards this shab


I was mostly joking. Although I actually do try to live my life in terms of what I call "sustainable hedonism", where I live as hedonistically as possible while still maintaining my health. As for lust, I just kind of like feeling horny.


love and lust will never mix for me

Let's prove him wrong.

I think the reasoning is because with designs like these, studios often take on a mechanical design person to help with how something should look and move, whereas most animators probably only have experience with static shots and/or human designs. So, it's easier to just slap in a few dozen cg cars than drawing them because all of the intensive perspective work is already done by virtue of it being 3D cg.


Yeah, but as to which would be more expensive that's a tough question to answer. The 3D cars/mecha in anime look like complete shite. It's not like it's CGi on the level of Pixar or something.


CG strikes me as being more expensive. Even if the model never changes, you'd still need to maintain a completely parallel staff in order to do all of the cg animation which is pretty time consuming. For mecha, that is. It wouldn't surprise me if there's a common industry program for dropping in CG cars and other common, high detail assets.


But really, the cost is pretty ambiguous. Which would ultimately be more expensive:
¥maintaining/contracting out a CG staff and all that entails
¥having a few dedicated mechanical design animators

Do you play any online games you'd like to play with kissu people?
Maybe this could be a thread to play some games together online? I think the stuff should ideally be free, cheap, or already have multiple players here.

Personally, I'd like to start playing Power Bomberman together again. It's a free fan game it's really fun, featuring a crapload of characters (including the new slutty ones) in beautiful pixel form and lots of cool maps. We had a thread for it about a year ago.
You can play it offline too, if you want to practice.

So, what multiplayer games do you want to play?

I think SRB2 Kart would be a fun multiplayer game to play with Kissu. it's very moddable and has tons of custom characters, (Anime girls yay!) tracks and gameplay mods such as tricks


File:[LoopSubs] Machikado Mazok….jpg (354.07 KB,1920x1080)

Nice. Yeah, I went through the headache of playing emulators in the early 00s online and it was really, really annoying. It's good to see that stuff get streamlined. What kind of games did you have in mind? I love those beat 'em up stuff, which might be what you were talking about in the first post.

Ohhh, yes that one is a great idea. I've seen clips of it and it looks really fun and visually very impressive.


Love me a good kart racer. I'd be down to play anytime.


File:AyaLikesMobas.jpg (155 KB,1280x720)


Sonic karts is pretty great. There's a mountain of mods too, the Soku-style weather one is awesome.

>What kind of games did you have in mind?
Dunno! I'd need to dig back through the list of supported games. I've mostly been interested in shooters recently (above pic was from Rapid Hero/Arcadia,) but it's kinda of hard to text chat while playing them given the auto-scrolling nature, and I'm not sure you can pause the emulator in multiplayer. I wouldn't mind playing a beat 'em up, but I'm probably not very good at them.

Try to find something in your screenshot folder of a random seasonal anime a few years ago. How much do you still remember it?
For Last Period, even when I tried to rewatch the first episode I only have memory of this white haired girl and the ED.

File:[Asenshi] Amanchu! Advance….png (1.85 MB,1920x1080)

I haven't really started hoarding screenshots until recently because of increased hard drive sizes. Even though, I still download anime at 720p and use JPEGs instead of PNGs. There's some exceptions, usually when I forget to revert back to JPG after taking a screenshot to edit, but it's still mostly 720p JPEGs even though I have a mostly empty 12TB drive.
At least I don't delete the episodes after a season ends any more?

I'm pretty sure he still posted up until late 2019. He just didn't avatarfag as often. He was kind of important because he paved the way for 2D/Random along with the NNB guy (if that wasn't the same person, not sure).

What do you think is the best approach to moderating topics which are okay in moderation but which you wouldn't want to become a large fraction of discussion on your site? This seems to be a common issue on imageboards, and probably other types of sites as well. Do you leave it alone until it's already grown too big and then try to clamp down at the risk of alienating your userbase? Do you try to contain them in a separate board at the risk of that board becoming what your site is about? Do you try to exclude people who seem to have a larger interest in the side topic than the main topic(s) of the site at the risk of driving away people who might otherwise have made good posts? Or is there a better approach?

Well, personally, I'm not a fan of IP bans at all. They tend to not work well against the worst offenders, and the impact of a ban varies depending on how often your IP changes. Although I wouldn't hesitate to use them against spammers, and they might be useful against people who have proven themselves an overall negative to the board.


usually people's post history is weighed against how bad their post was, so probably I'd give a really terrible post (like a cancerman one or something) a deletion for a good history ip, and maybe a 1-day ban if they kept it up, but for a no-history ip they'd get permabanned. although i'd never delete a good history ip's ip history, that seems like going too far

So the DDDDD thread made me realize that kissu doesn't really have any threads dedicated to manga that I could find. The focus seems to be too much on seasonal anime. I realize that this is because manga is much harder to find/follow than seasonal stuff as there are no clear guidelines for it and Westerners don't read comics nearly as much as the Japanese do.

Anyway, what manga have you been reading recently? I just read the latest chapter of Shimeji Simulation a few days ago. As with anything made by Tsukumizu so far it is great. Definitely recommend it to everyone here and I do hope it eventually gets an anime adaption as well like SSR.

For the longest while I haven't really been that big of a coffee fan, but recently I've been wondering if that's just because I haven't put the effort into making a quality cup. As lately otouto's been preparing nice coffee using grounded beans and a French Press. Are there any better methods for preparing good coffee, or is this the peak?

Just get a espresso machine


the only time I've had coffee made from a french press it was full of sediments and it tasted terrible. I usually use a moka pot, it tastes great but cleaning is kind of a pain. You have to wait for the pot to cool down to clean and it's easy to forget about it


As long as it keeps me caffeinated and stomach-troubled.

I'm content with the smell. Whenever I've tried coffee I haven't liked it much, but man does it smell good. I wonder if anyone has ever kept a coffee grinder around just for the aroma, because I could see that as a relaxing aromatherapy thing

Does /qa/ listen to danger music? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danger_music
>As with many forms of concept music and performance art, the lines between "music", "art", "theater", and "social protest" are not always clear or apparent. Danger Music consequently has some things in common with the performance art of artists such as Mark Pauline and Chris Burden. For instance, some extreme examples of danger music direct performers to use sounds so loud that they will deafen the participants, or ask performers to throw antipersonnel bombs into the audience.

>Yamantaka Eye's noise project Hanatarash was notable for its dangerous live shows, the most famous instance being when the Japanese artist drove a bulldozer through the venue at the back of the stage. There were also reports of audience members being required to fill out waivers before shows to prevent the band or the venue being sued in case of any potential danger caused to them.

>Other pieces involve more symbolic forms of "danger", such as Nam June Paik's "Danger Music for Dick Higgins," which directs the performer to "creep into the vagina of a living whale",[7] or a piece may direct that the volume of the music steadily increases causing the audience to fear that it will make them defecate (the hypothetical "brown note"), although it might never reach that point.


File:54d3ffe569499_-_gwar-n8hu….webp (62.62 KB,614x439)

Eh, really doesn't seem like my kind of thing. If I were to do anything, it'd be fantasy danger like GWAR.
Man, what a cool band, at least visually. I don't like metal so I don't know if they stand out otherwise.


Is this related to noise rock?


File:1447532252691.png (175.85 KB,625x515)

Yes. It is a derivative of noise (not noiserock though, just straight up noise). I was reminded of it because of an old /mu/ meme involving Yamantaka's music.

I had to immediately close your video because of cancerman shit by the way.
