Does it upset you when characters you like are mistreated in doujinshi? How much do you sympathize with them and how invested do you need to be before it starts bothering you?

But if you only lewd series you aren't familiar with or don't enjoy, you only add to the mass of surface level horniness. You should strive to put affection and understanding into your lewdposting.

I don't dislike it. Sometimes I'm in the mood to see a girl be tormented. When you like a girl, you want to see all sides of her, not just when she's happy.

True, but the breadth of well-informed stuff vs generic lewd is so wide that I think it's unreasonable to disregard the latter. Affectionate + in-character sex is great. But sometimes a wank is just a wank, and good art of some random girl you stumbled across will suffice.
That's why original characters are best.

I can also play Soku though I'm far from what you'd consider good at the game. Though I'm always down to play against people better than me. If anything I'm usually worried if I'm wasting people's time by being worse. Sent an invite btw but it's a tad too late for me rn to play games.

I'm new to soku myself and it's pretty different from other fighting games I played. As far as skill gap goes it's fine for me either way.

With that attitude you might as well be yourself on the spot.

The sort of doom-and-gloom extreme pessimism you espouse in your post is very easy to fall into; it happens to me all the time. But at the end of the day, it's simply not a constructive mindset to have. Nothing is accomplished by worrying about things that you have no control over, even when they are worrisome.

>Nothing is accomplished by worrying about things that you have no control over, even when they are worrisome.
That's the thing though. Up until a few years ago I did have some control. It has been taken away from me and everyone else because we've been kicked out and excluded from a community we started and built. All in the name of control.

You're advocating that we do nothing and don't fight back against this. Well if that's your stance you should be overjoyed. Since most people have decided to quit and there is less and less original content coming out of every community each year. This is fine for people that don't mine being datamined and getting recycled content. For the rest of us it's a huge problem.

That's not what I'm suggesting at all, although I could totally see how you got that from my post. Sorry for the lapse in communication.

I was trying to say is that you need to calm down and think about the situation to the degree that your actions can have tangible outcomes. Using myself as an example, I'm very pro-privacy and anti-censorship, so I use and advocate for things that improve both. For example, I use Tor for every website I can, and I tell others that they should too. I'm deeply afraid of attempts to reduce my privacy and access to information, but it does no good to think about a theoretical future where I have none beyond the extent to which it impacts my current course of action.

It's the difference between seeing fire and saying "the whole building is going to be on fire soon we're all gonna die!" and "I should grab the fire extinguisher".

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.

(bleh, reposting with fixed links hopefully)
Today is a sports day apparently, so how about some Dodgeball? Technos Japan had some truly amazing soundtracks on the NES and this game is part of the Kunio-kun series of games that had various localized names in the West. River City Ransom, Super Dodgeball, Crash and the Boys, etc.
Some of the songs borrow from known music (like the USSR theme here) while others are original as far as anyone knows.

Super Dodgeball:

The clone team theme really highlights how special these games were. It has THREE different parts which was quite remarkable for a NES theme, or even today's VGM really. These themes really get you excited.

Of course if you would know any Technos Japan theme it would be this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoJ7YFUotTA
Actually, screw it LET'S LISTEN TO SOME DOUBLE DRAGON! There's no way this stuff hasn't been hugely influential to video game music for being so early and yet so elaborate and catchy.

Of course the Atelier series can't be ignored. I have dozens of their soundtracks and it's a fantastic mix of various styles with lots of celtic flair. Tons of piano stuff, tons of vocal stuff, and lots and lots of special albums. Atelier really has a magical, comforting feel to it and its soundtracks contributed greatly to it. Lots of great, relaxing instrumentals for gathering and towns, but hectic, energetic battle themes as well. Perhaps appropriately the music works really well in the background when you're working on stuff like drawing or whatever.
Most people have only played the Arland trilogy since it's widely seen as the highlight, but they're missing out on a lot of other stuff. I know I've talked about Atelier music before, but strangely none of it was in this thread.

I think my favorite song is still Atelier Rorona's... Atelier Rorona. I feel like I've spent at least a combined total of 30 hours listening to it.

Budgets increased and Mitsuda has an orchestra for these two. Although it's arguable that he shouldn't have for Xenosaga because of how badly they apparently did their finances and it was reduced to a trilogy instead of 6 or more games. They actually used the London Philharmonic for Xenosaga which is probably very expensive. Soul Sacrifice is kind of weird because it had a second release with DLC on it, like a 'final edition' kind of thing and it had new songs. I think Soul Sacrifice in particular has an extremely atmosphereic theme that goes with its fascinating story elements tied to book pages. I've talked about it before on kissu, but it was years ago.

Something I've noticed of more serious otome/action-bishojo series is that they always try to upend society and replace the status quo with the politics and ideology that best suit them and their ideals. Homura, Utena, Dork, Euphie, Nefertima all act in similar ways to oppose the avatars of God(or God directly) who stand against them. Quite reminiscent of the Western media that conveys a similar concept of eroding status quo in favour of a rational society, except unlike in the West it's not done from a perspective of the moral choice and group harmony but pushes a more logical idea that directly criticizes the motives of those antagonistic of the protagonist.

>perspective of the moral choice
>a more logical idea
In "Western Thought", there is an assumption that the the logical or Truth is inherently moral. So this is actually a moral choice to the Westerner, just one that he isn't always conscious of. For example, why is Hypocrisy bad? "Directly [criticizing] the motives of those antagonistic of the protagonist" usually means pointing out the logical fallacies or the hypocrisy within the motivations of the antagonist. But why is this bad? What meaning is there in this criticism and why should the antagonist care about it? The answer is that Truth and logic are moral judgements that are presupposed. In a more power centric moral framework, Truth and logic are just tools to use against others in the pursuit of power that enforces the antagonist's will. Here being a hypocrite isn't immoral, so long as it's done in service of enforcing one's will.

 No.121876

Eh, I think that in Dork's case she's trying to solve a shallower issue that just affects her personally. While it's true that in her world there's prejudice against black people like her, it's not analogous to our world's prejudice where black people stood at the bottom of the social ladder due to slavery. Her world's prejudice is much more similar to this world's historic prejudice against g*ngers, which didn't need great societal upheavals to stop.

Why do those with power use their power to alter the world in a way that suits them? I don't understand. Why can't they just be polite and avoid sticking out?

Seriously though. I fail to see the merit of this perspective.
The question of what kinds of problems they set out to fix, and what values the authors are (inadvertently) weaving into the frameworks of their stories feels like a more promising line of thought.

This is literally what Dork wants; a quiet life. I think OP misunderstood her character a bit because she doesn't fit into this ideal he's talking about at all. She doesn't want to change the game, just defeat the Demon Lord if necessary. In real life she was basically the "I NEED MORE POWER" Vergil archetype.

Do you remember what was the first VN/eroge you've played? I was trying to find out the names of some of these pixelated PC-98 ones I've played before and one of them was apparently True Love. It seems to have gotten an official TL in 1998 according to vndb. I played it sometime around 2003-2004 I believe. Quite a few ones seem to have gotten official translations back then surprisingly: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JAST_USA There are probably more that I've had the chance of playing before in there as well. Need to check it thoroughly. Yume Miru Kusuri is in there too and it was also important to me in that it was the first 'real' VN I've played/read in its entirety. I remember finding out about it on /v/ around late 2007.

I can't say for sure. I played a few of them around the same time, but my memory is hazy and they kind of blend together. I did play True Love back then, but it wasn't the first (and that's a dating sim really) but I'm really not sure because it was so long ago and I was so young that I can't remember much. It might have been Nocturnal Illusion, but maybe it wasn't. I remember that it took place in a mansion (I think?) and there was some evil woman with glasses. It's so embedded in my psyche that I hate 2D girls with glasses. Well, I mean I don't HATE them but I can't like them.

It's an eroge though. And the distinction between VN and dating sim is a bit dumb to me anyway. Dating sims are pretty much just VNs with a bit of gameplay, like Rance, Monster Girl Quest and Utawarerumono.

It's not the best film scan, EoE needs a remaster now that Anno has the rights clear and free of Gainax's rotting corpse. But I will say the surround sound mix of EoE is actually amazing, which I never realized until seeing it in a theater.
Misato moaning sex like she's right to my left for 2 minutes was the best.
Asuka's mom slowly becoming more and more audible from the back of the theater sounds like a schizophrenic break.

Do you watch anime movies often? It feels like they are something that goes unnoticed in the West for the most part. Miyazaki won an Oscar with his newest movie but I haven't seen people discussing this movie anywhere. The last two big hits (Kimi no Na wa and Koe no Katachi) were almost 8 years ago by now, so what gives? Why couldn't it gain traction from there?

I think part of the problem may be the same suffered by shows dumped in full on some streaming service, the fact that there's no weekly engagement to keep it on par with all the other stuff coming out during a season.
And uhh no I usually don't watch movies that are coming out and the only ones I ever really hear about are either adaptations, or originals from Shinkai or Ghibli. If there are others coming out, I've zero clue about it.

There's actually a fair bit of movies that come out a season compared to what gets talked about. But from this season I know that prior to it people here were talking about Dededede so that'll probably attract some attention when the first BD release comes out.

qBittorrent since it has everything I need and pretty much every PT whitelists it. If you need some advanced feature(s), chances are there's a way to get qBit to do it even if it's not natively supported. I wish more trackers allowed qBit Enhanced Edition since I use several Chinese trackers which expose me to kuso leeching clients like Xunlei, but it's not too big a deal.

Yes, taiga is extremely useful if you want to keep track of a bunch of anime and not have to manually update lists.

tixati
it has very comprehensive stats and provides fine-grained options and controls over transfers
>>121691
tixati has a built-in client id filter, not sure if tixati is accepted in pts in general but some of them do accept it

Deluge because I can run the daemon on my NAS and connect to it from the client on any of my other machines easily to set up RSS feeds or open magnet links.

I was listening to the koukaku no pandora opening https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWGqagnqHb4 when it dawned on me that the line
"yaiba no kage ni kokoro ga atta yo"
is probably referencing the kanji for shinobu 忍, literally composed of the the characters for a blade "in the shadow" of the character for heart

This is also the heart of the pun in naming Acerola Orion Heart-Under-Blade "shinobu"

unfortunately all english translations of the song had interpreted "atta" as the past tense of "au" rather than "aru", thus shifting the meaning to "hearts meeting"

Isn't the two's relationship kinda mutually abusive?
Clarion is the stronger one, and she shows it, but she's been ordered by her master to enter this immoral relationship.

i checked the the DameDesuYo subs used by DmonHiro/neoHEVC/Nene and their translation surprised me
>This blade lies between your heart and the world
without any context for the show i have no idea how they came to render it like this, because there's no mention of the world in that verse and in this line the blade isn't the subject, it's the heart. not even referring to the blade itself but the shadow of the blade which isn't mentioned for some reason. however, what matters is that it is using existential aru, it's not talking about a meeting. atta is also written in the lyrics purely with kana (刃の影に 心があったよ) and that's the standard for ある. iunno where OP got the meeting part but i can't see the irony either.

The translation with "meeting" was this:
https://www.animesonglyrics.com/pandora-in-the-crimson-shell/hopeness
On a second search, I found another translation, but this one instead renders it as "connecting"
https://www.lyrical-nonsense.com/global/lyrics/zaq/hopeness/english/

I can sort of understand "blade between heart and the world" as a more natural rendition, as it does get at the same "concealing the heart with a blade" idea

okay that's 合う then, hearts coming together
like take the example of「二つの川がここで合う」, "here two rivers come together/meet." that one does work with rivers being the subject, but you can see the location is marked with で while when this verb uses に it's to mean what kind of thing it's matching and that's not what any of these translations interpret it as
definitely suspicious but i'm hardly capable enough to say for sure

>Beneath the shadow of a blade, our hearts connected!
Okay, that makes sense in the context of the series.

>>121650
Not even a little. Clarion is a robot who is ordered to be Nene's bodyguard, gets treated like a yuribait best friend, and is tsundere about it. Nene doesn't realize this because she's dumb and just goes around playing with her catmaid friend.
