What are your thoughts on the rising number of "ironic weebs" and the increasing popularity and acceptance of otaku media & materials in the west's mainstream?

Over almost six months. Keep in mind this place is populated in a significant amount by particularly bitter members of the anime fandom who have nostalgic feelings towards the time where the hobby felt more "underground".

Some of us are still sincere. Some of us aren't trying to win points on the internet or be "ironic" in some way. So chin up I guess?

Do you think the youth of our current generation is spoiled by having a limitless amount of media content instantly available to them at a moment's notice?

>the access to some adult material may have spoiled them in a sexual way
This concerns me greatly. Ever since the sexual revolution in the 60s, our society has become absolutely obsessed with sex. And on top of that we are expected to not only accept most types of sexual perversion, but to also celebrate them. I am already begining to see some teenagers on social media openly admitting to watching all kinds of degenerate porn in a non joking manner. As if to say "this is what I enjoy and you all better accept it."
I have no problem with anyone having some weird fetish (unless it's something morally reprehensible) but you need to keep that stuff to yourself or only talk about it in anonymous chatrooms. I would rather not live in a society where I see men openly getting pegged by a dominatrix in the streets.

>social media
The honesty of anonymous imageboards and the anonymity of a mugshot. I don't think it should really count.
>> No. 32079 [Edit]
I'm referring to Youtube. Not sure if that is considered social media but it's close.
>> No. 32080 [Edit]
Technically, yes, but YouTube comments were never known for their quality.

Birthday parties where when I was a kid.
I'm not fat but I'm not in good shape either.
I work every saturday in my parent's restaurant and they pay me. I'm pretty much forced to or they'll kick me out of their house. Plus I get to use the money for anime merch, video games, ect.
I don't really know how "recreational drugs" is normalfag honestly.
And finally, the social network part. I have a twitter, but I only use it to follow artists, follow game devs, get informed with anime news, ect.

That one isn't entirely fair because you can't control it. I get compliments regularly for my performance at work but I am not what the average person would consider a normalfag.
>> No. 32090 [Edit]
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.

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!

Yes yes I know. Grass is always greener on the other side. No country is perfect. Every country has its flaws, but come on! Everything I said about the US is true!
>> No. 31653 [Edit]
While I'm not going to go defending each and every action the american government has taken in its past, nor will I defend "culture", I will defend the principles america was founded on, which I truly believe to be a good basis for government. Of course, the current state of it is not ideal. One great thing about it is, each state has its own laws and regulations, allowing for a lot of variance throughout the country. Of course, the federal government has been ever growing throughout the last 100-150 years, and corruption is not unheard of. Mass media culture is of course horrible and only has a negative influence, but where isn't it? I don't think that culture properly reflects every single person living in any country, be it America or whatever other place. I live there, and I don't hate it where I am, although it would be better to live in a place with less people. Cities are usually garbage with some exceptions that I do like a bit.

It upsets me how the borderline porn game that is Kancolle keeps redesigning my favourites into more covered up, de-sexified versions. What the fuck is wrong with these people, it's ruining my porn.

Very much so. I've been thinking though, I haven't seen anything from Etotama this year, I liked Uri-tan. Though I suspect many have forgotten the series since.

I've been drawing an image a day since late December last year. I am seeing improvement but the more I improve the more my motivation fades and the more effort I have to focus on art and the more time I think about it. Why bother? There are thousands of good artists now, nothing I make will contribute much. I don't even have any amazing ideas or projects anyway, my only ideas are military anime girls and some lewd things I won't say, while these are relatively obscure they have all been done before and are still being done all the time. Would I even view my own images in the same way if I got to there level? Would getting to their level bring down how I see their art works? These thoughts are far too distracting, I have barely been watching anime, playing games or reading.

Is anyone willing to work on the translation of the 5th and 6th volumes of Seikai no Senki now that it's no longer in hiatus? I'm interested in restarting this project and editing if necessary. I can provide raws for both volumes.

If you're interested, you can either drop a throw away email here, contact me on the tohno-chan IRC, or just register on baka-tsuki and add yourself to the project.

Editors are also badly needed. Everything after Chapter 1 of Volume 4 is mostly unedited to my knowledge, and from Chapter 5 on the style changes completely. Right now I'm working on editing Chapter 1, and when I get to Chapter 5 I'll standardize it so it's all the same style at least, but it's slow work alone.

You don't need an account to edit, but if you want credit you can make one. If not, then just hit edit and get to work. Here is the project for anyone interested.

It wasn't Crunchyroll or Amason.
It was 4chan. Posting "nigger" anonymously on the internet and getting away with it was the punk rock or acid test of the f1rst decade of this century and 4chan was at the center of it.
Crunchyroll, Amason, etc were just the corporations cashing in, they didn't provide the zeitgeist which was driving western youths to anime, it was 4chan that provided that infantile anti-authoritarian thrill.

makes me sad that the girls we watched and bonded with will never grow old with us. they will forever exist in their little snapshot of a world. you might get some fanart and if youre lucky another series, but for most of us thats it. the end. move on to the next cute anime girl. its sad.

I'm curious what you think of the whole subbing situation nowadays? I know fansubbing is pretty much dead but some botched translation has brought back the scene (GJM is the most prominent one coming to mind at the moment) to an extent. This was the first time in a while I saw drama about localized subs (I'm not gonna bother going into it, it was dumb) and the subber justified it by calling people complaining weebs and a whole shitshow about it. (shitflinging about nationality and politics, standard dumb flame war shit). I talked to someone who speaks Japanese and apparent Horriblesubs is fine for what they are, and if that's to be believed, I appreciate them for bypassing all the dumb "artistic" shit and TL notes, for forgoing all the drama involving subtitles and generally being good enough. I just realized though, most anime viewers are basically taking the meaning of the media with someone else's word. I wonder how often translators are deceptive and "liberally" interpret things, which eventually becomes direct influence over what the characters are saying or straight up guesses for whatever reason. I imagine people with no connection to Japan besides being wapanese wouldn't be able to speak it enough to even tell.
I'm quite curious to learn Japanese now and see how much changes.
What do you think?

I'd assume lyrics for songs are by far easier to acquire than full episode scripts.
>> No. 32011 [Edit]
The issue is licensing! Japanese music companies charge a fortune for anything they can and limit contracts as much as possible. In fact, the license for using a song's lyrics is separate from the license for using the song itself - and TV anime usually only comes with the latter. Western licensors, as such, don't bother acquiring lyrics rights because they don't really see a business reason to.

The reasons why CR doesn't translate opening and ending themes does not change the fact they don't translate opening and ending themes. Just as the reasons why they don't host many kids anime, or why they change character names around in anime such as Jojo does not matter. Crap is still crap regardless of why it's crap.
>> No. 32016 [Edit]
You are literally the only anonymous I’ve ever met that cares about kids anime getting subbed/hosted. It should be simple enough to watch as listening practice if you know grammar okayish!

Where do people with autism fall into the whole world of imageboard otaku and hikki? It seems even most people on a site such as this would make the assumption that the posters are, biologically, normal humans. For someone who is unable to work, I'm afraid it's a little hard to relate to the idea that all otaku must eventually give in to the world of normals. I quite literally have no choice between the hikkineet life and starvation while homeless.

There is literally nothing special about people with autism that are above low functioning autistic folks. I'm 100% confident and certain I'm a high functioning autistic person and I'm not that much different from non-autistic people. You just interpret the world and situations slightly different than other people and may have some sensitivities to sound, touch, and visuals.
>> No. 31911 [Edit]
On most NEET/hikikmmori imageboards I find its usually a contest to see who can have the most fake diagnoses. They seem to think the more debilitating the mental illness,the more "hikki" you are.
>> No. 31937 [Edit]
>I'm 100% confident and certain I'm a high functioning autistic person
Yeah, you and every other ford driver posting on imageboards. Nowadays everybody seems to think they have autism. It's not just "social anxiety teehee". Even high-functioning autism makes it impossible to perform tasks most people consider normal.
>> No. 31942 [Edit]
yeah we all know that being damaged is moe as all fuck, but i wish those people want to talk advantage of damage-moe would just put on an elbow bandage or an eye patch instead of talking about themselves on the internet contsantly. i shouldn't even bother mentioning that someone who fakes an illness and then wears it on their sleeve for attention would fit the profile of a self-centered sadistic narcissist rather than an autistic.
