Nenpo Refugee ThreadThis is a thread on /qa/ to help facilitate discussion among wandering nen friends that have recently lost their home board. There is already a thread on /jp/ here: >>>/jp/36668 but due to /jp/'s nature as a board for general nonsense it could quickly be displaced onto page 3, so this thread will also exist on /qa/.
Utwarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen StreamsWe're in the home stretch of catching up on shows with sequels coming out in the Summer season!
Spring 2022 Anime Thread: I hate making these editionSomebody's probably going to bitch if I don't make a "proper" seasonal catch-all thread for the season or create another lame one that has the same fornmat as always if I don't do it just right so here it is.
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.
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.
Summer 2022 AnimeThere's a new season on the horizon, kissu. So that means it's time for you to sift through this list and find me the good ones to watch.
The Kissu ReviewsIn this thread you can submit your reviews of video games or other media so that we can keep our pulse on what's hip and cool in the kissusphere. That sounds kind of restrictive, but I just mean it's going to be a place where I (and hopefully others) post about games I've been playing instead of making a thread each time that tends to die off pretty quickly.
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?
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?
Imageboard post text and personality link?I've read several articles about how the languages posted on the internet can be analyzed which words are categorized into different types and establish a link between these and the various info about the posters including gender, age, personality, income, etc. The results show huge difference of word choices between different class of persons.
Kissu multiplayer games?Do you play any online games you'd like to play with kissu people?
Anime Blogs?Does Kissu read any anime blogs or find nice posts to read?
Gelbooru: tag divisionGelbooru decided they were going to split their rating:safe tag into two distinct categories of safeness.
Serious Business Slang Translations?What's your opinion of slang stuff in translations? Some people object to any divergence, while others have generational objections and still others feel it's a localization choice. One thing we must all accept though, is *click on the mp4*
Honzuki no GekokujouSeeing the display of magical power recently in this anime has me wondering how the topic of magic itself will be addressed as Myne ages and learns to wield it more efficiently. The anime thus far has gone to great lengths to avoid becoming a magic battle shounen so I don't see it becoming the norm, but it most certainly has to be addressed given how powerful of a tool it has proven to be. However, I think that as long as it doesn't lose sight of making slow progress towards mass literacy and somewhat modern printing I'll enjoy the ride it takes me along, since the strength of the characters still has yet to waiver.
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!
Towards A Srs Analysis of VtubersI can already tell this thread is going to go great.
Relevant events from each year in imageboards + relevant anime that aired at the time2007: The Fox News reportage on 4chan (hackers on steroids), Rickrolling being conceived as a meme and Gurren Lagann, Lucky Star, Clannad, Kaiji, Kodomo no Jikan, Baccano, Minami-ke, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Moetan, Potemayo, School Days, Bokurano, Claymore, Nodame Cantabile, Darker than Black, Gundam 00, Devil May Cry, Denno Coil, Mononoke, 5cm per second, Kara no Kyoukai, Eva 1.0 and Hidamari Sketch airing. Gurren Lagann was huge on /b/ at the time with the ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWER memes and stuff. Katawa Shoujo was also apparently conceived as an idea on /a/ in this year. This is when I started using imageboards. I can't go back further than this.
Film RemastersIf people are perfectly capable of restoring footage like https://www.youtube.co
Goodbye EriGoing to dump the new Fujimoto Oneshot if anyone is interested in reading it here. I was apprehensive of doing it at first because the person who dumped DDDDD had to delete it later to free up server space, but it shouldn't be a problem in this case as the whole thing is only 35mb long.
/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...?
Increase in quality anime?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?
Analyzing the different types of human loveSo 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.o
Grammer threadWhy do native English speakers make the confusion between "your" and "you're" so often even though their meanings are different? Is it because they sound the same since English pronunciation is retarded? Ironically this isn't a problem for me as a non-native speaker. I learned the difference as soon as I started learning English and never made that mistake.
/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.
Dead Dead Demon's Dededede Destruction!Guess what manga is getting an anime adaptation? The annoying-to-type Dead Dead Demon's Dededede Destruction! To celebrate this I think I'm going to dump some of it now and then.
/qa/ recommendations threadWas thinking recently and a thought came to me that it'd probably be a good idea to have a recommendations thread for people to simply recommend others things they've been watching and/or enjoyed.

Fanbox/patreon for hentai artists?One thing I have noticed on the recent uploads/translations of the panda is usually well-known and regarded artists like Ankoman and Terasu MC kind of milking the fanbox system. Now since there's been a lull in conventions I get it but some artists do it weird or disappointingly.
Can /qa/ take a fight?If one day you had to fight to defend the honor of your waifu against a decently built opponent, would you be able to?
Uma Musume Season 2 StreamI'll be hosting an Uma Musume Season 2 stream at 6PM EST (5PM CST) this week Friday. You'll catch on fine and maybe even enjoy it more without watching Season 1. If you still want to prepare, know that this show is based off real racehorse trivia but also career records, so be careful when looking things up. For those of you who join a little early, I'll be playing half an hour's worth of Umayon shorts. Hope to see you there.

An Informal Study of Taboo-nessWhat exactly is taboo, objectively? Well, something taboo is seen as "wrong", but in reality we can simply think of it more so as how disliked or unpalatable something is. To begin, we generally hold the view that less common a particular tag (fetish) is, the more taboo it is. Unfortunately, this view is somewhat flawed. For instance, "mini guy" isn't particular objectionable or disliked on it's own, but it's neither very enthusiastically like either. Something such as this we could consider as being in a sort of neutral territory. So, if there's a neutral territory and a taboo-ness representing dislike, what is converse to taboo? We can call this vanilla. The more well received something is, the more vanilla it is.
MushishiWhat are your favorite episodes or just interesting concepts from the anime? I thought that the idea of "Shrine in the Sea" was worth a thought in how functional a community where people are "reborn" and expected to take on the exact role of those who they used to be was interesting. Makes you wonder about the lives of the villagers outside of what's just shown in the episode. Such as if they really feel like they're who everyone else says they are, or if just having it being told to them their whole lives made them accept it.
Moe literatureOkay hear me out. Is there such a thing as an slice of life equivalent in literature? I know there are a few books about the daily lives of people living comfy lifes such as Heidi or Anne of Green Gables but I mean it in a more anime-oriented way. The literature equivalent of K-On, Non Non Biyori or Yotsuba!&. Not only focusing on day-to-day activities but also pursuing moe in all its beauty. Something like girls messing around town talking about silly stuff, not having much worries. No drama or sadness (well, maybe some feels here and there).
The Great Temptation: Anime FoodWhenever I see the dishes made in these fishing anime it always makes me want to go out and fish something up to eat it... But then I remember that this requires actually going out and fending off armies of bugs if it's not cold weather and I feel disheartened and concede to just getting something from the local market. Is the rumor really true that fish tastes better when you catch it yourself, or would a pro-catch be around the same level? Also what anime have inspired /qa/ to try their hands at a dish?
/qa/ thread statisticsRecently I have a feeling that the contents on /qa/ is drifting farther away from my taste. Rather than simply bickering about it, I think it's best to provide objective data so that everyone can see how /qa/ has changed.
