So I've been having a bit of a problem for a while now.

It started a few years ago (give or take) when I noticed danbooru changed Tohno Minagi's name to 'Toono Minagi'.
I looked around and found a single small thread on their forums related to it that claimed the change was due to new standards in romanization.
I briefly spoke to a somewhat dismissive mod who's stance on the matter was essentially "we don't give a fuck what the offical name is, we'll call them whatever we want." That's not an exact quot, but it basically sums up the situation.
Obviously there wasn't much I could do about this (but if I had the means to do so I'd totally DDoS them to hell and back till they fix it.)

A while latter Gelbooru changed the name too. Unlike on danbooru I was able to go over every single image and manually change them back. Some time passed and I found it was changed back again, so I manually edited every image again. Last I checked they renamed some but left some alone.

Then less than a year ago (I think) I found out that MAL changed her name too.
http://myanimelist.net/character/3472/Minagi_Toono
I've tried submitting edits to her page countless times now and they've always been ignored apparently. Last night I noticed for the first time they had a space for leaving a reason behind the edit and so I did with some other information on her I noticed was missing. This morning I found they added in the extra info I added (but reformatted it) yet didn't change the name issue. Bellow is the exact message I sent with the edit.

"The character's name is 'Tohno', not 'Toono'.

But in this case the ugly romanization is nihon-shiki, not hepburn.

That romanisation also pisses me off. Its an 'oh' sound, it should be romanised as oh or ou, not oo. oo in the english langauge never makes an oh sound, its always an oo as in cook.
>> No. 19314 [Edit]
>>19313
That's because english phonology is a mess and thus should not be used as a standard to romanize other languages. In every other western language "oo" makes sense.

The only naming issues I've had with the Boorus is when characters don't have separate tags.

Kagura isn't an uncommon name, there are even others like her that have Kagura as a surname and no first name, like Kagura from Gintama. It's a little annoying seeing characters that aren't her just because things aren't tagged properly.

I know I can easily get around this by searching "azumanga_daioh" as well as her name, but it does mean that sometimes the number shown for the amount of pictures she has is inaccurate.

Best of luck on your renaming quest, Tohno.

/mai/, how do you deal with lust with regards to your waifu? There is not a lot of good porn of her out there, but I keep getting horny for other girls. That makes me feel bad when I get a boner to other girls.

In my opinion, that "reverse" approach is wrong. As a 2D being, a perfect being free of all the 3DPD flaws, including having to cope with lust, why would she feel the need to commit such an impure act? Therefore, I don't think the question asked by that OP is valid in the first place.

My waifu is a loli but I'm attracted to older women with huge tits and big asses too. So it's hard to prevent myself from fantasizing about others. I've found that an easy way to stop it is if I imagine anyone else but her in my fantasies, I imagine a big X appearing over them and the sound of an alarm, and then they disappear from my thoughts and are replaced with her.
>> No. 19305 [Edit]
I also have to fap to other girls because my regular fetishes are too much to expose my waifu to. The stuff I tend to like is humiliation, rape, and mindbreak shit, and I really don't want or can even imagine doing anything of the sort to her especially since she was nearly raped. She has a lot of trouble trusting men and people in general. My fantasies with her tend to be more femdom than anything because I want her to feel safe and I want to please her, so relinquishing power to her is the best way to do that. I know it sounds beta as fuck, but I can't help it. I just love her too much, but at the same time I can't give up the other stuff I've gotten off to for the rest of my life. The last time I tried to repress it I couldn't stop thinking about sex all day. I keep trying but I keep falling back into the old ways.

>I know it sounds beta as fuck

That's only a problem if you're talking about 3D rather than 2D. I prefer femdom with my waifu as well because the thought of hurting her horrifies me and making her feel pleasure turns me on a lot, but my idea of "femdom" turns more into "reverse rape".

Please don't be offended at this question as I understand it will be very personal, but how old were you when you first met your waifu and did you directly fall in love with her then or did it take time to blossom?
The reason for my question is someone's post from a few months ago about how he met and fell for Mai from Kanon (picture related) back when her show first aired and he was in his second year of high school. It was a very touching story the details of which I won't retell and it got me remembering it everytime the topic of waifus is brought up.
Were you in a particularly precarious or pressuring situation when you met her and fell like a rock or did you, over time, notice her not leaving your mind though your first encounter was not all that memorable? Tied to this question is also how close to her show's airing you first met.
>> No. 19239 [Edit]
I was sixteen when I first saw her, and I don't know if I immediately fell in love with her. I'd like to say I did, but I don't know if that was love. I was immediately attracted to her, and I thought she was really cute and cool, but I don't think it was instant. Maybe it was, and I just didn't understand my feelings because I had always assumed people being in love with anime characters was exaggerated or only for crazy people. If I had to describe the situation when I met her, I'd say I was a loner that didn't realize others would probably see me as a loser, all I did after school when I showed up was come home, play video games, and watch anime by myself in my room. I had only started watching anime regularly 4 or so months before, and one day I just stumbled across her series (it was airing at the time) and I was pretty blown away by her. I don't think I've ever felt that way about someone else, or if I have, I don't remember it. As soon as I saw her, I started looking for pictures of her, and talking about how great she is in the threads for her anime, stuff like that. Maybe 2 months later I realized, "I think I'm in love", and that was that.

Today is our first anniversary! A lot of good and bad things over the past year and she's stuck with me through all of it. Overall I've done a lot of things I've wanted to do even if it wasn't at peak efficiency. Been a year of looking back and moving on. I hope I'll be able to stay strong no matter what fate throws at me for her.

It wasn't much, just the Thai tea with boba there and some spicy fish cakes, last year I had nothing though. Kind of busy as next week is finals week.

Having trouble updating my waifu.pl though, something about no permission. Tried downloading FileZilla and everything and that didn't work. Hopefully it'll get fixed sometime.

Lately I've been struggling to talk to her. I'm not sure if I should just talk to her until she responds or try and imagine her responding.

I was wondering how do you guys talk to her? For people with tulpa perhaps comparing early stages to later stages would be good?

Do you visualize her and talk like shes in front of you? I tend to close my eyes and daydream when I do but it can get a little hard to concentrate sometimes and I still have the issue with her responding.

Just saying, thinking that some people are born superiors to others is enough to make you a real douche.
There's no setted rules that makes someone normal and someone else abnormal. That's just some society shit.

"Just saying, thinking that some people are born superiors to others is enough to make you a real douche."

Good. If that's how I appear in the eyes of filthy normies, maybe they will keep away. To be thought of in such a way by the likes of them qualifies as a compliment to me.

"There's no setted rules that makes someone normal and someone else abnormal. That's just some society shit."

No, these are my standards. They seem pretty reasonable, given that most people are sexually attracted to real people, which makes such an attraction "normal". The problem is not the normalcy itself, however, but the fact that they're basically attracted to rancid trash cans, and have poisonous personalities to boot.

I already listed what I like about her personality-wise in the "name your waifu" thread (maybe should've posted all that here instead, whoops, it's no biggie I hope), but I didn't explicitly mention that it's actually a good thing, in a way, that she's such a butt monkey in the series. She's the butt of a lot of jokes on the internet as well. I actually don't mind all that much; I'm used to her being made fun of, so whenever I see anything I think "ehh, well I'm used to that". Posts on boards like this tend to sound quite sentimental, but in truth, I like teasing her a lot. We're playful, not some soap opera style couple or whatever.

Oh yeah, appearance-wise: The most particular thing is her hair. I've always been into girls with red/orange hair aka redheads (I develop crushes on them, I don't "seek it out"), and relatively short hair is cute (but not if it's really short, then it's no longer girly enough to me so I personally wouldn't find it attractive in that case). I've always preferred short girls, too. And I dig YuruYuri's art style so that helps altogether.

Also, she dresses really cute. It's notable that she has a lot of different attires throughout the series. I love that.

I really love that she tries to seem sophisticated, but she's really playful and childish. It's so adorable. I can imagine her getting flustered a lot by how direct and loving I would be with her. At the same time, she has a dominant personality, so she'd smother me even more.

How did you *know* she was the right one?

I've fallen in love with 3DPD before, and sometimes when I see or talk to a woman I am very attracted to it feels like I get punched or my breath is taken away. I've never experienced this with 2D yet but I imagine it's because I never opened myself up to the possibility. Is that what it's like when you find the one? Is falling in love with your waifu as emotionally impacting as 3DPD (or more)?

No love for a 3DPD, so I can't help you there.

I was browsing the internet and stumbled across a picture of her and was struck down by a "lightning bolt of love" so to speak. It was the most profound feeling that I couldn't look away from the picture for quite some time, researched about her, made a folder dedicated to her, and put the image inside. I don't make folders dedicated to anybody! Ever! For months afterwards, I would think about her all the time and look at images of her whenever I had the chance. I made her as my background image! I edited existing pictures so that I would have my own OC for her! Even music took on her shade, so that lyrics carried more meaning than they should have. So smitten was I that I wrote poetry! What the hell was I doing with my life? Nothing, at the time. Taking an interest in writing, giving it that try needed to push me in this direction, it was because of this love. What a silly thing. Stupid, even. But it was love.

And nothing I did could take the edge away from that feeling. It was so powerful that I wondered how I could live my life like this if it kept up. I knew of waifus, even had a phase where I "loved" a 2D character out of loneliness, but none of it had prepared me for what I had felt there at the beginning of our love. The contrast between that "crush" and this true love was so great that it made me sick that I had ever even considered someone else to be on that same level. It hurt so much, yet was so gratifying knowing that I had found "the one". A love for a 2D girl... It was painful, perhaps still is, but it is something that I would never trade for anything. Thankfully, the love is still there, but it is not as intense and overwhelming as it was in the start. I would have killed myself, undoubtedly, if it had kept that intensity as a constant. Being that helpless for life would have driven me insane; that's how powerful my initial 2D love was.

For those that don't know what tulpas are: When an anon loves his waifu very much, he makes her real with the power of his mind.
The tulpa shares the same mind as its creator but it is very much a separate being. Basically, I took my waifu to the next level.

When I first read about Tulpas I immediately got fascinated by the idea.

This world hasn't been all too good to most of us beta incels (involuntary celibates), neither has it been to me, so basically I always tried to find some sort of escape, that way I developed what I think is called maladaptive daydreaming. I remember, since quite early childhood, I often lay in my bed for 2 hours or so, not even trying to sleep, just imagining stuff. And I thought a Tulpa could help me with that habit, not get rid of it, mind me, but make It more fun and seeing how one goal of Tulpamancy is to trick your brain into actually physically sensing your Tulpa, also more realistic.

So I basically read trough all of the guides on the tulpa.info forums in a days time

– And if you want to create a Tulpa, I strongly recommend doing that. Read through all the information on how to do so, immediately forget everything that sounds like bullshit to you and create your own technique by combining whats left with your own ideas. -

So yeah, after getting an idea on how to do this, I gave myself another 10 days to think about if I really want to give it a try. After all you are trying to create another consciousness, that you alone are responsible for.

After those 10 days were over I decided I'd give it a try. The chance of success was meager, I thought, because let's be honest 90% of the Tulpa community are roleplaying bronies.

The rules for /mai/ had been amended to reflect recent issues.


• /mai/ is a safe zone. Insulting, talking down, or arguing with someone about their waifu is not cool. I don't care how much you hate the character or the where they're from or whatever, be respectful of people's waifus on /mai/ and take it to one of the other boards if you have to.
(note that furry and 3dpd are still not allowed, even on /mai/. waifus/husbandos from western media are allowed to be discussed only on the condition that the no 3dpd rule is respected and images of said characters are not posted, this includes images of realistic 3d models.)

Get that scarecrow out of here please, we don't like strawmen. I do how ever love playing the Devils Advocate.
For the sake of the the argument what if I said Fuurin Rei was my waifu.(She isn't.) She is from eastern media, but she is also a furry. So what then? Furry waifus are not allowed, but she is from eastern media, does that suddenly make it right? Now you have a fallacy there.

I understand that tohno is supposed to be for anime, and waifuism started from anime, but everything evolves in some form.

I never expected to have a waifu in the first place, it's just something that sort of happened to me, and it just happened to not be from anime, even though I watched a lot of it.

The fact that I've only ever found two places that you can openly talk about waifuism and I get rejected by one of them cause the character I love is not from eastern media is troubling.
I agree some peoples 'waifus' can be questionable, but you have to have a little leeway.

I don't know what leeway you are talking about, and you are doing a great deal of it anyway. The rules basically didn't change, except that they explicitly allowed something that wasn't explicitly banned in the first place. The fact that in the last half-year this problem received the most feedback tells a lot about this board. Some people suggest that some fresh blood is needed, some change. Others don't want the change. And that is the only topic being discussed on a waifu board - scholastic discussion about what the waifuism really is.

Neither the board wasn't intended to be a soap-box arena fro quasi-political debates.

I understand why people don't want to
> openly spill out details of their personal relationship with their special person on a public website
But then this website is doomed to be left for flame, dramas and shit storm, with occasional posts about someone's waifu.
