Sometimes I wonder what Kissu would be like if the voting system used on /ec/ and /megu/ was a sitewide thing that was active on every board.

In the standard imageboard format, it's hard to tell the difference between a post that has no replies because no one read it, and a post that has no replies because people found it generally agreeable and nobody had anything to add, and it can sometimes feel like you're shouting into the void.

This isn't a feature request. I'm not even sure if it's a good idea to begin with. I just think it's one of those things that's interesting to think about.

If your life is saved in a way that makes you completely dependent on the person who saved it, with them able to take it away at any time, have you really been saved?

Even the normal undead are utterly beholden to their resurrectors to survive. Their lives aren't their own at that point. Benevolent necromancers may allow them a great degree of freedom, but a freedom that can be taken away isn't a freedom. It's a luxury that distracts a slave from their position.

Maybe. Sounds pretty terrible to me. Sounds like a prolonged suffering thing, but OP is alluding to a specific situation from a specific anime and for that I'd say the answer is probably no.
I think in these situations there's usually some free time or small joy found since the human mind is capable of great feats of adaptation.


Only the dead can know peace from this evil.

So, what anime are you planning on watching this season? There's quite a few major sequels and continuations and some new stuff that looks great as well.

Was browsing some places and found this chart of the final rankings for all anime on nico. More than popularity, kissu may like seeing this.


wait what
98 out of 100?



that has to be selection bias


Well it's the ratings for the final episodes, so most people that were still watching probably did like it a lot.

The only one I know of is on 4chan, but I'm not sure if it's any good. It's bad to always receive fluffy, non-committal praise, but /ic/ seems to be too far in the other direction. Apart from that, artists seem too scattered.


do people still use conceptart.org forums
edit: apparently not the site is gone noew


I am also on firefox and it also doesn't work here and in some other browser drawing app so maybe firefox just does not support pressure.

According to the happenings thread >>101080 , Ash's journey in Pokémon is finally ending. It's pretty impressive. He was doing it back when I was a kid, but here we are in 2022 and it's finally over.
It brings lots of thoughts to mind apart from nostalgia.

- I wish I was into Pokémon more. It's like the /mlp/ people on 4chan, there's a bunch of dorks involved, even around my age, that still keep the magic alive. Sure, there's a bunch of kids as there should be, but it's interesting to see older people around making references that only people of a certain age would get. It's hard to find good internet losers.

-Names. People on the English internet generally refer to him as Ash (like this thread) and the localization names for each Pokemon as well. Some names are the same, but many of them aren't. One of my favorite Pokémon is Bulbausaur and not Fushigidane. With the internet full of arguments over everything regards translations, it's strange how this never seems to crop up.

-Great games. I haven't played the most recent ones, but I've never played one I didn't love. I think the newer games allow you to see the Types so you didn't need to throw moves around randomly, which was really getting to be a problem when there are 1000 of them instead of 150.

-The games get a LOT of various ROMhacks. There's even that one Touhou one that's not a hack but a standalone game. Not just simple hacks, either, but very involved stuff and you could spend thousands of hours playing them all. I should look into them more and try some out.

-Pokégirls. I think everyone knows this, but this series has some of the best character designs around and has been consistent about it since its inception. The Asuka vs. Rei thing never seemed that interesting to me in comparison to the girls in Pokémon. Even the 'girl of the week' in the anime had more interesting people in them. Duplica the girl with the Ditto that couldn't transform its face sticks out to me. Brock getting a crush on every girl really made sense.

-Just a fantastic style in general. There are places like https://hirespokemon.tumblr.com/ where you can see the old concept art and it's truly beautiful. Sugimori is a true gePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I know lots of gym leaders have hard counters in the grass around their town in some games, but I don't see how you could beat the E4 with wild mons since the only things close to their levels are victory road's limited assortment of types. I guess legendaries and item spam?


items, status moves, the ~15 rare candies you get per game. It's probably a lot harder in the new games since the elite 4 seems to have more mixed teams


File:Pokémon - 083 - Poke Ball ….jpg (71.52 KB,640x480)

I've been wondering... why did Brock leave the anime for a bit? It doesn't make much sense to me. Did the Japanese voice actor become busy or something? He's such a good character and his replacement was so generic.

Hmm... well, that's not much of a description but it's a recommendation!

That sounds pretty fun. It is a bit lame that the most effective way to play Pokemon is generally to have one Pokemon that you level up, but the XP share stuff at least made it a bit more varied. I generally hovered around 4-5 of them when I play. I think Pokemon kind of has to play it safe with some stuff and that's where rom hacks or fan games come in.


Brock's design was deemed to be racist so they swapped him. It's a true story.


I thought that was Jynx.

I think part of what helps kissu maintain a relaxed atmosphere is that you're still allowed to be edgy, calling people slurs and making jokes about race and sexuality, but actual discussion of controversial real-life topics is kept on a pretty tight leash. I can call people niggers, but something like >>119722 would get you banned pretty quick.

I've been looking at 4chan/w/ and found the powerlevel thread. It's like a thread for posting wallpapers which reference some anime/manga/game/whatever but try and be pretty stealth about it so it won't look weird in public.
There were some really good ones there, but there aren't many wallpapers for phones there...

What wallpapers does kissu use? I've been using pic related on my phone for a long time now, it's Okabe's phone wallpaper from the Steins;Gate VN. Pretty stealth but still a nice reference that somebody who's also read Steins;Gate would catch (not that that's happened to me yet...)

This could be a nice long-running thread so I'm posting it on /qa/, but maybe it's better for the seasonal boards? Though those don't get much activity compared to the 2 main ones, so I put it here

And this one too, which I like quite a bit and fits very well.

Well yes, that's essentially the story in a nutshell. Though I meant it fits in that it's rectangular, fits the screen.

How much time can a show spend on build-up before you demand the plot move forward?
How many episodes can the main character be absent before you need things to get back on track?

File:[Erai-raws] Isekai de Mofu….jpg (235.65 KB,1920x1080)

If it's really good then it doesn't need to move forward at all. The exception is filler material, but I don't think that happens much these days. But, I think it needs to be clear about what the show will entail early on, and not suddenly pivot for episode or two in a completely different "genre". I think it's better for a dramatic show to have a fun episode than a fun show to have a dramatic episode, especially if it goes into politics and stuff.
Story progression though? As long if it's still generally heading in the same direction I don't care if it takes a while if the characters are good.


File:[AonE]_Hidamari_Sketch_x_S….jpg (140.52 KB,1280x720)

All of them. Never move the plot forwards and have the characters move on from school. Keep them there forever and the good times continue forever.


Episode 1:
We are informed that aliens are attacking Earth. Humanity scrambles to bring together a team of high school students to combat this threat.

Episode 15:
So far, every episode has brought news of people dying, massacred by the vile invaders from outer space. The protagonists are very disturbed by it and discuss it with great vigor during lunch on the school roof.

Episode 52 (last episode):
One of the characters confesses her love for another, but the declaration ends up inaudible over the noise of heavy bombardments. "Eh? Nandatte?"
To the background of the burning city, the girl suppresses a tear, bears a slightly bitter smile, and says: "Eh, it's nothing."


File:[Serenae] Hirogaru Sky! Pr….jpg (262.4 KB,1920x1080)

I want 10, no, 20 seasons!


In the OP show, they spent five episodes introducing characters and are just now having the different factions start to interact meaningfully. It's still been interesting, but I am wondering how much they're going to be able to fit in the remaining time. It's not episodic or SoL at all, but at the same time not much is actually happening while they set the stage.

It's different from, say, Code Geass or Railgun where they periodically set the important stuff aside to get into school shenanigans. That can be a lot more frustrating if it isn't used to build character motivations or relationships and just ends up feeling like a filler episode.

Having a hard time getting advanced math concepts into my head so I can get advanced machine learning concepts into my head easier.
6 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


I'm also one to learn more from practice than reading, but isn't reading/lectures the only way to understand the concepts of AI and the math required behind them? For example, I can program a neural network following tutorials and have a general grasp of what the functions do, what a loss function might be, what gradient descent means, etc, but I want to know what they mean in the pure mathematical sense as well.
Don't know how it is now but a year ago when I was learning machine learning, you could train (albeit smaller models) with Google Colab for free.
Don't know how much the average person can reasonably pay for but I did also create a worthwhile image recognition program to categorizing my image hoards.


File:[SubsPlease] Dosanko Gal w….png (2.03 MB,1920x1080)

Yeah, I guess the big LLM stuff does require beefy hardware if you actually want to create competing products. People did mess around with making neural network stuff years ago before this chatgpt stuff took off, though, so I assume that stuff is still out there. Things like a guy training one to play Pong or whatever. While being completely ignorant of the inner workings of this stuff, I think that kind of thing is probably informative.

>I want to know what they mean in the pure mathematical sense as well
i asked a friend in the field the same question and was pointed to this lovely resource https://d2l.ai/
You will want to have a solid math foundation in areas like linear algebra, calculus, statistical methods, ect.. but it does also have some introductory chapters on the most relevant foundational items. I haven't made it past chapter 8 yet and have had been using it for a few years but I still think it's a great resource. It's almost exactly what I was asking for, as I was tired of half-baked medium articles and youtube videos that went which function to use to make a dog-cat classifier but they never told you much about how or why it worked.


Nice, thanks, gonna get started with it.

I will NEVER have a twitter account so this is a bit of a bummer for the few times I actually need to look at something. I really, really wish artists and creators would completely move to something else

Rather unfortunate, the maintainer says the same.

It's difficult to wean yourself off of something when people insist on linking to it for no apparent reason. I suppose from now on I'll just tell them I can't see it, same as when people link to other kuso sites.


god i'm finally free


I'd really like to, but 99% of my traffic to twatter is due to japanese artists posting some stuff only there and nobody put it on any boorus
misskeys still hasn't completely taken twatter's place for them so far, either, the future is bleak unless elon actually delivers on his promise to make the service subscription based for real (thereby killing it, hopefully)


For now he's still hoping to make money off of it. But I doubt he'd let money get in the way of controlling one of the greatest communication platforms, when he is already making enough money elsewhere.
