I'd like to start another dream thread, if that's all right. I'll go first.
You know how when you're a fan of something like anime or scifi or similar things in your teenage years parents will try to buy stuff for you? My dad and stepmom bought anime\manga related shit at yard sales a lot. Sometimes it was good, sometimes it was off the mark.
Well, in my dream I'm still in high school. I'm sitting there playing Xbox when my dad & stepmom walk in and yell that they got me something at a yard sale. I'm think to myself, "well, probably shit, but I might as well see," and go to check it out.
I walk into the kitchen and on the table is a box full of stuff from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
I get more excited and go to see what it is. There's every episode in raws and fansubs on
VHS, some uniforms, figurines, and even Shinjis' fucking tape recorder with the tape he listens to inside it! All the merchandise seems to be older and seems like it was directly imported from Japan. I ask where they found it.
It cuts to a yard sale with a slightly sad fiftyish woman in her front yard. She talked about how her son loved this show and whatnot, and seemed very sad. She sold it all for about 10-20 dollars.
I take all the stuff out and find a suicide note. Her son had gotten into anime in the
eighties while in high school and was completely inept and friendless. He grew obsessed with
Evangelion and felt a strong kinship with Shinji because he was such a fuck up. He grew older
and couldn't find anyone to share his interests with, became more and more of a recluse, and
killed himself in the late nineties, which I recall being a shame since the internet as of
96, when he killed himself, could have given him a place to talk to others and feel less alone. I realized he was "an otaku of another generation." I hung up his note and saluted it. I then went to watch his tapes and realized that he had dubbed it himself in case he ever met anyone who wanted to share his joy. I inherited his legacy. His mother had cleaned house and ended up giving me a record of a hikkikomori life.

I had one I could actually remember last night for the first time in ages. In it, massive godzilla sized bizarre looking aliens invaded earth. Some of them looked like huge pokemon.
For some reason their presence caused humans to freeze in place, unable to move but still able to see and hear everything around them. These monsters would snatch up and eat people frozen out on the streets. For some odd reason seeing motion of any kind could cancel out the effects, so cities around the world eventually built large yellow windmill like devices and placed them everywhere. Not sure of anything past that.

I was walking down to the park and for some reason explaining why stealing from people is a pretty . While talking we passed by a trailer and went to a park, but then we pretty much walked to an exit out of the park somewhat 20 feet away that was next to a house. The house seemed broken into and outside of it laid a ton of crosses and crucifixes. It was a truly bizarre scene, like one out of a shitty demonic possession movie, then for some reason I decided to look through the sliding window door things to see what exactly had happened and everything inside was turned over and in a mess. I then noticed a body on a couch, shaking, unable to do anything but stay there while facing the window. Their eyes were pure black and they had seemed to be stereotypically demonically possessed.

As I had looked for a couple of seconds, I realised that it'd had been better if I left, especially since I had my nephew with me and although he's not really a kid, I don't think that I'd be okay with any of the stupid demon shit affecting him or him getting hurt in any way. So I just told him that we had to leave, although I guess that it was pretty shocking to him because he looked at it a couple seconds longer before coming along with me.

As soon as we made it onto the street, I said something I don't quite remember to lighten the mood a bit since I know that panicking is one of the worst things you can do for any situation. I then woke up and went to the bathroom.

There was more in the beginning, but I cannot remember that part, however the whole demon possessing thing came out of nowhere. It was very strange and interesting to dream of such a thing.

I had the most vivid and coherent dream in years.

I was walking in a nightmarish land. It was heavily overcast, a strange day-night time. Parts of the scenery were visible while others were completely dark.
I walked through a burned down village or something, and everything was covered with oozing flesh and guts. Even the ground was all slimy membrane and tumorous muscle, yuck. I was lost and absolutely terrified.

Then in one of the dark areas I saw terribly red eyes staring at me. Strangely it didn't scare me, I calmed down a little because somehow I knew who it was.
It was the mothgirl Mashiro. She came out of the shadows and the awful place got a little brighter, she was so brilliantly white.
She told me that for now I was trapped in this horrible world, and would be able to leave only when the time was right.
She wanted to help me endure the nightmare so she hugged me tightly and said she would not let go until I could wake up.
So we just stood there cuddling until I was released back to the world of living. End of dream.

That character was probably supposed to be nightmare fuel but I always liked her, I thought she was quite wonderful... She has a yandere streak but she would never hurt the willing.
Or maybe I just want to believe that she's a good girl.

I don't know what to think about this.

On may 14th Chiitan’s official twitter accounts were all deleted with the exception of their English account after some feud with the talk show host John Oliver.

Additional accounts aside from the main one have been suspended, now.

A theory popped up on online forums stating that the Chiitan account owners might have tried to be cute and set the birthdates to "0 year old", which caught attention of Twitter's rule enforcement team.

It's something to talk about. Pull your head out of your ass and make some topics yourself if you have a problem with it.

I've heard most anime uses a very simplified version of Japanese and using it with native speakers can be seen as insulting. Is there any truth to this?

If you picked up English from, say, television: it wouldn’t sound “in place”, either. It probably has to do with the inherent fakeness in media.
>> No. 32284 [Edit]
>>32283
Most people pick up English from TV, even if they grew up in an English speaking country. It's why our language is becoming so homogenised(well that and social media).
>> No. 32294 [Edit]
I can't say if it is simplified, but there is a clear difference (at least to me) between Japanese used in anime and the Japanese I hear in live actions. Kumiko from Hibike is the only character that was speaking like an actor from a live action.
>> No. 32308 [Edit]
Far as I can tell it seems to be slowed down with words pronounced very clearly. I can see how that type of speech can leave a person feeling talked down to.

what are some things that really bug you?
things that genuinely piss you off?

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to vent about any little annoyance, no mater how big or small.
Any and all complains about the world around you are welcome here!

I can't stress how much I hate hand shaking.
I found out one of my mom's friends apparently think I'm an asshole for avoiding shaking their hand. Skip ahead a bit and I came across someone at work who wanted to shake hands, I did it, found out latter he was sick, then got the feeling I was coming down with something myself soon after.
I got over it quick enough, but it's a really shitty custom

Aside from spreading germs, you're simply dirtying people's hands. I mean if I'm about to eat and your asshole self wants to shake hands, that means what I gotta wait till you leave to go wash my hands and now eat cold food because you'd be offended if I didn't shake your hands, and more offended if I washed my hands right after shaking them? I've had this exact scenario happen a few times too.
Secondly, why would you assume someone wants to touch you in the first place? Some people don't like being touched, just leave them the fuck alone and don't guilt trip them into doing something
Then there's douchbags with something to prove who try to crush your hand. What the fuck's up with that? Just don't fucking touch me you cunt bitch whore fag dick shits. Is that so much to ask for?
>> No. 32304 [Edit]
>>32303
I understand this one. Do you ever sit and watch other people eat anything with their hands? A lot of people just wipe their hands and leave the restaurant. I can't prove that they don't wash them soon after, but somehow I doubt it. They must walk around with their hands smelling like fried chicken, etc. all day and not be bothered in the slightest. So I understand not wanting to shake someone's hand.

I was hesitant but I decided I will share my YouTube channel here now cuz fellow otaku neets can see my channel and maybe I will make some new friends. My channel is for vlogging my otaku neet life and internet culture from my perspective, hopefully you guys like my channel. I get super motivated when someone watches and enjoys my channel. Gives me purpose in life. Life without purpose is kinda boring. Anyway, here’s my YT channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfgC5swITM571T-i5EmZk9w

That's an interesting thought. I've thought about the differences between animals and humans for quite some time now, and find the parallels really fascinating. Especially the ones found in social behaviour. It's sometimes scary how similar we really are.
>> No. 32240 [Edit]
>>32239
It's not really too much of a surprise when it comes to social order/packs: those traits like going with the crowd and posturing to be "alpha" were likely to be conserved due to the advantages they give.
>> No. 32279 [Edit]
>>32239
Animals always try to disguise their true characteristics by displaying false, better characteristics; but evolution supposedly proceeds because mates pick their partners by observing desirable characteristics in them.
What a quandary
>> No. 32292 [Edit]
Does anyone else just get the feeling that ironic weebs are this generations "bronies" and that it will die out in a few years?

Do you feel an uncanny level of connection with your computer?

I upgraded recently and it's actually made me kind of sad. I had my previous computer for nearly a decade. It feels kind of like I've abandoned a great friend. I don't feel as comfortable with this new computer and that emotion seems to go beyond just the annoyance of setting up software and copying settings over. When my tracking number said my memory would get here the next day I actually had somehing of a mental breakdown and cried. Throughout so much of my life it's been there right next to me, the one object I'm sure to use every day. The new PC is nice but I don't feel this close to it. Kind of like I'm leaving an old friend to rot in an alleyway when they did nothing wrong. I know I'll get over it, I had much the same reaction when I upgraded from my original pc. But it's been weeks now and every time I pass by the utility room it's sitting in there and I feel kind of bad about it...

Does anyone have similar experiences? People like us really live our lives on these machines. Is it really so strange to be this attached?
>> No. 32243 [Edit]
I wasn't as connected to the laptop I used before, but the PC I'm on is the first one I assembled myself, and I feel connected to it as a result. I don't know how I'd feel about leaving it.

I think more so than the physical parts that make up the computer I have have a more emotional attachment to the OS installed. I installed this one back in late 2014, and at the end of 2016 accidentally wiped my whole drive. Along with losing my files I equally didn't like the idea of losing that exact OS, that's the most anxious I've been with anything like this. I had a backup from mid 2015 so I could keep using it from then, and still do. I hope I never have to reinstall.

Yes and no, I bought a prebuilt about a decade ago I wrecked and now I used a refurbished office PC I have upgraded quite a bit. It’s weird.

I'm probably going to be moving into a suite that my grandma owns sometime next month.
A couple girls asked me out in high school.
And lastly, I used to celebrate my birthday when I was a kid and in my teens. I don't like to do it anymore though, I would rather just do something that I enjoy by myself.

Not everyone pirates, and as long as enough people don't pirate to turn a profit it's usually valid. There's Western publishers releasing hentai (Critical Mass for anime, FAKKU! for manga), eroge (MangaGamer, Sekai Project for VNs; Nutaku for mobage; even DLSite has an English storefront now).

Goddamn exactly. It's like they feel compelled to make you aware that they indeed have sex. With women. Of the opposite sex. Often.
It's obnoxious. What's the point?

Shallow people are always trying to "give a good impression" (which is to say give a false impression) because they're shallow, skin deep stuff is all that counts for them. When a shallow person is afraid that others might think that they're a homosexual then they will make an effort to make sure that you don't have that impression. So if you're around someone like who behaves like that be aware that they think there is a good reason you might think that they're a homosexual, it can be useful knowledge. See this post >>32238 for further discussion on the commonness of dishonest behavior, its an interesting topic.
