Autumn 2023 AnimeSo, 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.

Summer 2023 AnimeThere's a whole lot less this season, what does /qa/ plan to watch?
Japanese Learning ThoughtsI want to nakadashi *girl* has become a popular phrase on imageboards (mostly 4chan). But it's a mix of Japanese and English. If I was going to say "I want to cum inside Holo" fully in Japanese, how would I go about doing that? In the English sentence, nakadashi is a loan word and it is the action being done, but in Japanese I don't think 中出し is a verb. Can it be verbified by adding する to it? And then you conjugate it to say you "want" to do it. So the end result would be 私はホロで中出ししたい which would translate to I want to cum inside Holo. Am I correct?
Factorio Space Exploration Server ThreadSERVER IS UP
Rurouni Kenshi and RemakesThe new rurouni kenshin looks flippin GOOD (Although not on the level of Tsuioku good but that's impractical). Which is nice for me because depending on how much they adapt this is probably up in my top 3 greatest battle shounens of all time. Would be amazing if this goes beyond just re-adapting what the anime already covered and properly doing justice to the later manga arcs because that's the greatest fault of the original IMO. Although the new OP is definitely no sobakasu..... It's hard to top a 10/10 opening I wish the new one was at least comparable...
/qa/'s thoughts on AIThere's two threads on /qa/ for different AI generation content and help. A thread on the morality and ethics of AI. One about the future potential AI holds. One on >>>/megu/ for more in-depth help with specifics. Then scattered about across all the boards some threads using AI generation for image openers and such. However, none of these actually encompass kissu's opinion on AI!
Fun Facts!Does /qa/ have any more fun facts to share?
Pixiv vs TwitterWhich side does /qa/ take? Obviously pixiv would probably be better for searching (although boorus are even more preferable for that) and viewing a long list of art at once. However, in recent days I've been using twitter's feed more and I think that in terms of discovering new artists and likewise finding interesting stuff from people you haven't already followed it's a lot more convenient. Also the previews are a lot easier to see. So in terms of finding content, which do you think makes for the better go-to feed?
Other uses of AnkiYou know, I was just thinking about this since I've been using Anki a whole lot recently to learn and remember kanji, but daily flash cards that you use to recall and keep fresh learned material seems like a pretty good way not to lose and waste knowledge. For instance, I don't often use all the theorems, lemmas, formulas, equations, methods, etc. from back when I was really deep into studying mathematics. However, if I made or used an Anki deck for it I could probably help myself to retain a fair bit of those couldn't I? Has anyone on kissu tried this, or are there better methods for retaining that kind of mathematical knowledge?
Path of ExileThe new league starts in a few hours so I thought I'd advertise the /qa/ mansion guild here in case anyone wants to play it. We're around 6-7 right now, but I have enough guild slots so that we can accommodate pretty much the whole /jp/ spinoff population that still plays games (upper limit of 30-ish if I'm assuming generously). The bulk of us are going to be playing on softcore-ruthless so I'd recommend doing that too if you want to reap the benefits of a shared use stash. But, anyone that just wants a bunch of free space can join to use it in normal/hc too. We have a good deal of space https://files.catbox.m
Best time to build a PC?Right now it seems to be a good time to build a PC:
Let's talk to AI CharactersMORE AI STUFF! It's weird how this is all happening at once. Singularity is near?
SRB2KartHey Kissu Kissu! Would you like to play Sonic Karts sometime? I have created an addon pack with some fun stuff included! If someone else is willing to host it, that would be cool, but if not, I can always do it myself.
The "Bloodstain" HP SystemSome games, particularly 1st/3rd person action games feature an HP system which I call the "Bloodstain" system.
imageboard happenings threadPost interesting or unusual stuff concerning imageboards, textboards or related stuff here. This thread is for a more centralized place of limited discussion, but please feel free to make new threads if you want something more thoroughly discussed.
Baldur's Gate 3So we're about 2 weeks out from the biggest RPG release of potentially the decade. What plans has /qa/ set aside for the release of BG3? Do you have a general idea for what you'll be playing or are you going into it blind, or do you not give two-shits about it because it's a WRPG? I'm looking forwards to playing an Elven Necro and seeing just how fleshed out the summons are for it. Also to see if they let you take an evil route.
Voiceroid fun!Thanks to a link from a guy that lead to discussion and a link from another guy, we have links to software that makes cute voices!
Cool Software?Do you use any software that other people may not know about that you like?
Imageboards: in the midst of web2.0 deathRecently, it seems that the slow death of web2.0 is being accelerated rapidly. Here I define "web2.0" as openly accessible websites with primarily user-generated and linkable contents.
Kissu's Future Planning: Potential of Self-HostingAs time goes on and we consider different avenues of potential growth or new features for kissu, the big question of "What's the best way to do this?" comes into play a fair bit. Recently I've been considering some ideas that make me think the best way to really expand on what kissu has right now is for us to set up a mini-server/pc to allow us to have these features on-site without the need to pay out the butt for expensive and really not cost-effective rental servers. With that said, I'm not necessarily the most technologically inclined of the admins so most of my ideas are wrapped up in idealism and fantasy. As such I think it'd be a good idea to bring the discussion to kissu itself to get more practical ideas and maybe expand the range of what'd make for 'cool features' to add to kissu.
Single Vs Multi(N) MonitorsWhat are your thoughts on using multiple displays vs having one main one.
Streaming: One OutsWe're watching baseball today.
Leveling and the LikeAm I the only one who thinks that traditional RPG progression systems are weird from a game design standpoint?
/qa/nime: continued!I was reminded that another year has passed since the last time the /qa/ anime chart was updated, so I thought it was as good a time as ever to bring it back, update it, and improve on it a bit in the process.
CHRIST IS KINGPetraGODs won, Petra is sharty culture, CHRIST IS KING!
Spring 2023 AnimeA breath of fresh air after the barren wasteland that was Winter, I'm actually looking forwards to a lot of the things airing this coming Spring. From only the short runthrough I've done I was able to immediately spot:
Mahoutsukai no YomeI love the way in which the world of magic is presented in this anime. There's not really much power scaling shounen stuff that typically accompanies the setting and neither Chise nor Elias are so powerful that they aren't beholden to the rules of the world. It allows the world feel so much more vast because of how much out there is on the same footing as the main cast instead of only a select few being even capable of harming them. It also makes the tension feel more real in that the threats of the neighbors are in no way empty, and a mistake could cause irreparable harm. Take Ashen Eyes for instance, his presence makes any scene more tense from the fact that his whims are all that protect Chise.
'Gin no Saji' StreamI've been wanting to do a kissu stream of this for a while now but I kept procrastinating. The filename for this image tells me that I took a screenshot for this thread in December of 2021.
AI GamesWhat do you think about AI games, where not only scripts and characters will be AI generated, but also the game route, game mechanics, and random events?
light novel threaddoes kissu read light novels? show us your favorites or what you're currently reading.
/qa/'s AOTYs over the yearsEveryone knows about 3x3s and whatnot, but what about your particular AOTYs for every year? Have you ever given thought to that? Think it'd be interesting to see how much how this graph kissu can fill out, and what everyone picks.
Intel ArcDo you think Intel will commit to their GPU line or chicken out when the sales get bad(as Microsoft did against Apple and Samsung), which they inevitably will be against AMD and NVIDIA market dominance, or will they commit to it and try to make a market where one doesn't exist(has anyone done this)?
Kissu MCIt's time to play MC again! This time with a huge modpack, "All of Fabric 6" https://www.curseforge
Japanese imageboardsLet's talk about Japanese imageboards.
Revival of Translation Project(s)!About a year or two ago we threw together a ramshackle translation group for a manga/doujin. It started off decently, but it kind of fell through at some point, although some very impressive work was done including a full translation of the text!
I will (attempt to) play Detective Nosuri!There was an Utawarerumono spin-off game/VN that came out in December. It's centered on Nosuri and seems to be a game that plays like the Ace Attorney games. I loved those games and of course I love Utawarerumono so I was hugely excited about this.

The Kissu Year+ In ReviewSomething I've kept to myself until now is that I've been taking catalog screenshots of /jp/ and /qa/ for a year with the goal of sharing its HTML snapshots. Well, it's time to finally use them!
/qa/ makes a scheduleDid you know that making schedules for activities can be a good way of helping you to accomplish what you set out to do? Instead of letting NEET entropy guide you, you should try and put some order into the things you do.
Buying stuff?There's some bad news in Japan about the yen being quite weak lately, but it's selfishly good news for people that want to buy Japanese things, so have you thought about it or have bought anything lately?
Learning Photoshop with Kissu!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.
/qa/ music creation threadi've seen dedicated drawthreads and writethreads here, but never once saw a music creation thread. considering you can post sound files here i wonder why it happens, because i did see several posters here said they made music. is it because many consider the stuffs they make have no merit to be posted? or because many have some musician profiles that they want no connection to this place...?
Kissu multiplayer games?Do you play any online games you'd like to play with kissu people?
Kissu's Birthday!Kissu is four years old! Stream has concluded!
Stream TomorowI couldn't watch the ending of Buddy Dads so I want to watch it tomorrow.
The price of artworksDo you think that the price tags of artworks are determined by their mediums? I think this is the case in practical senses, which means that digital artworks should cost nothing.
Hidamari Stream'Cause it's been a long time coming.
On Media Platform ConsolidationHow does /qa/ feel about so much of the content online being limited to just a few enormous platforms? In some ways this has lead to a massive increase in discoverability for smaller creators as the potential audience on these platforms could not feasibly be larger, and it's convenient for the consumer to have most everything they want right in front of them. However, everything has its downsides and I'm sure with kissu being itself split off from the mainstream net there's at least some major gripes people have with it. A good example being how content moderation on these large platforms essentially means the erasure of most content that either pushes beyond the limits of brand safe or that corporations take issue with (For example: DMCA). Plenty of videos and whatnot I've favorites on YouTube throughout the years have been lost to time because of this, and I'm sure that most of kissu has experienced the same.
"Grindy" GamesWhat does /qa/ think about games that requires the player to do a lot of repetitive processes to win (grinding)?
IMs and imageboardsWhat would the benefits and drawbacks be of trying to implement IM functionality onto an imageboard. If you were to try doing so, how would you approach tackling this? My thoughts are that an omnichat encompassing everything connected to the site and the site itself would be neat, but I can't really see the need for anything further like a board chat or smaller.
RaytracingWhat does /qa/ think about raytracing and more specifically, ray-traced conversions of older games? Personally, I feel like most ray-tracing is wildly unrealistic and is often done in a tacky and exaggerated way, especially when it comes to RT conversions which rarely live up to the original.
MotivationI've been using knitting clickers for a while now to keep track of how many things I clean around my apartment each day, with a daily goal of 20 items. It's working really well, I've basically trained myself to clean things up just because I can get a few more clicks on the clicker; like I'm training a dog. If you only clean sporadically I would highly recommend it; my apartment is cleaner than it's ever been.
KONOSUBA STREAMBecause there's a Megumin anime coming out soon I think it's a good time to finally have Konosuba be something that the kissu stream has seen. To that end I'll be streaming the two seasons of konosuba followed by the movie these upcoming fridays and sunday.
OGL v1.1Has anyone of Kissu heard about this? Apparently the new version 1.1 of the OGL was leaked recently and it's much more restrictive than 1.0.
Fall 2022 Seasonal AnimeWhat is /qa/ going to watch this season?
Nyoroko's Live Broadcasting - a Kissu scanlation projectI feel like continuing the typesetting of this one. Can't make any promises about how far I'll get, but I'd like to get a few more chapters out at least.
Utena Anime StreamAs outlined in >>>/b/11084 I plan to stream Revolutionary Girl Utena in 4 separate streams starting this Friday/Sunday. Each starting at 6pm EST, that means the first stream is tomorrow!
Tea, coffee, and other similar beveragesHow do you like your hot drinks? I just started making drip coffee (machine) and it is definitely an improvement over that instant stuff I used to drink for years--even the "top shelf" ones. And I like how there are so many more types of coffee to choose from now, the ones with very little acidity being my favourites.
New Year's Gikopoi PartyIt's that time of year again when people from various textboards, imageboards, IRC and other outdated internet communities turn into little kinda-almost-isometric 2D cats and hang out and welcome in the new year. New Year's Eve is this Saturday, which will interfere a bit with the seasonal stream for some timezones, but I think we can alter how that goes and give a buffer zone for each hour mark.
Utawarerumono? UTWARERUMONO!I need a thread to post about the Utwarerumono trilogy, specifically the anime adaptation of part 3 which has just started airing so I made this thread. Generally speaking, I'll do what I did about the stream thread here >>91605 and post art and music and stuff to share my love for this series and I hope you'll join me in talking about it!
What video editing software do you use?What video editing software does /qa/ use? I'm looking to perform simple editing like cropping, flipping, and speeding up videos and making image sequences. I use Sony Vegas and it's really bad, the exported video is always dimmer than it should be and the compression is awful compared to ffmpeg's.
