You know, i was never into loli but i've always found SD characters cute since i was a kid, i think this was my slippery slope to get somewhat into it.
Lately i'm kinda seeing the appeal of lolis, i think it's all about innocence and pureness. Most doujins/mangas like comic LO, involve bro/sis or people really closely related and most of it is consensual. So i can see why it would be popular, since things like innocence and love in real life are extinct, only rational for people to migrate to fiction.
However, i see why lolicon is bad and dangerous, for the old otaku it may not make sense but for the "new" otaku, it does.

Some "otakus" are unable to distinguish between fiction and reality, some even plaster fiction INTO reality. This is where the danger lies in and why i can see a plausible explanation as to why loli was banned in some places.
One day he'll fap to LO and the other he's on known pedo hideouts, unable to tell the difference between fiction and reality, always wanting more to satisfy twisted desires.
Fapping to a fictional story has no implications, it's all art, drawings, whatever you may want to call it. However, fapping to CP is another story, the poor kid you see is already broken for life and you're supporting the monsters who did this to him/her. You're basically telling him to continue destroying other kids minds and lives. May you rot in prison then.

If i had a 3DPD and she confessed to me she was a shotacon/lolicon i would be fine with it, but only if she was an otaku like me.
Last thing i fapped involving a loli was "Before the festival" and i felt heart-warmed by it at the end, this is how loli doujins should be, not some disgusting works i've seen around where they get raped by some creepy guy. I don't know you but even if it's fiction it doesn't sound right to me to fap to the suffering of others. If it's a somewhat cute tale with a happy ending it's alright but things

Should Dokoro-chan be considered a yandere?

She's more genki than what many typically associate with yanderes, and she wasn't 'that' obsessive with her affection from what I can recall. That said, People tend to equate violence with yandere types and in hearing the op again she repeatedly states that violently murdering the mc is how she expresses her love.

Does it even matter anymore? Dokoro is old.

Thanks, not sure what you mean about drug smuggling though.

Recently I've been growing concerned about the car truth be told. I'm starting to find out these particular cars are really high maintenance and can be pricey too, so I'm not really sure if I'm up for that kind of responsibility or not.

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 was visiting a friend, and I asked him for some music to listen to. He loaded some music onto a computer for me. I went to listen to it and opened up a music video of two naked men on a farm singing about horses.

My new medication is giving me these strange vivid dreams. I had one the other night where I got stuck in an airport and I went to hang out in the parking lot for some reason and there were these kids so I played with them and then a guy came out and told me I had to go back in the airport so I did and they said I forgot to fill out some forms so I did and they looked up the information on them in their database I guess and they pulled up all the cringey stuff I've done in my life and they were about to read it to me when the dream ended. The main thing I remember about the dream is this ad in the airport advertisting a new cartoon starring a cute goth girl with striped stockings and blonde pigtails in sort of the same art style as Star versus the Forces of Evil but more Butch Hartman-y crossed with that other new cartoon I forgot the name of with the kid with the freakish amount of female siblings. The weird thing is that it was a British airport but the ad was in Spanish and it said the cartoon would premier during a Superb Owl commercial, and I remember wishing I could be home so I could post on the internet about it.
>> No. 28311 [Edit]
I also forgot to describe her (I thought she was really cute). She had big curly blonde pigtails tied with black bows with a skull on them and striped armwarmers & stockings, with a black dress with a big skirt and straps that went over her shoulders and corset lacing on the front and a big bow in back. She also had blue eyes and little fangs and a pair of big black platform boots.

I've been studying 日本語 for a year now and I can still barely read VNs or a couple of pages of manga. The grammar rules just don't stick to me, I feel like I must suffer from retardation or a really low IQ. I'm honestly starting to feel like spending all my time on the internet has turned my brain into mush.

Meanwhile I see people who have studied in half the time make twice the amount of progress as me.

Then again I am lazy. I have no motivation whatsoever. If my mom didn't get me out of bed every morning I probably would just sleep until I die.

Just end me

The rules aren't that complex in my opinion, what part of the grammar do you have problems with?
>Then again I am lazy. I have no motivation whatsoever.
Why did you want to start learning Japanese? Also if it helps: the most annoying time is the beginning, when you start reading easy stuff, your progress is more obvious and you are probably much more motivated since you have fun and learn shit as a bonus.

Good luck, dude.

I did the same but it worked for me.
>I look up a word, only to forget it moments after.
What do you mean? Don't you remember at least faintly that you've encountered a specific word before? If you always think you see a word for the first time, you must be doing something very wrong or you're fucked but if you at least feel a little bit of familiarity, you're making progress.
Also if you read already, you shouldn't really care about vocabulary acquisition, that's something that just comes automatically either way, it just takes longer if you don't learn actively with anki or similar stuff but no need to rush, unless you want to go to Japan next year, then you're fucked too.

Taking a trip to Japan or otherwise being surrounded by the language & being forced to use it might help you.
>> No. 28303 [Edit]

>I look up a word, only to forget it moments after. To combat this, I leave the dictionary tab open so I can refer to it later if I see it again. The problem with this is I have accumulated hundreds of dictionary tabs. It's a huge mess.

I'm sure you know this already but let me repeat it to drive the point home some more - use anki. What you do is essentially the same as using anki anyway, except really inefficient in many ways.

It's okay to halfass anki on days when you feel like shit. You shouldn't do it but it happens. To everyone probably. But even then you should just rush through them, take quick guesses instead of spending the time on the 'on the tip of my tongue ones' and mark them as 'hard' when you miss. Even then you should reread every card and try to take a good look at the kanji.

The entire point of anki is going through your cards regularly. Your brain is built in a way that will make it naturally pick up on some things if you'll get exposed to them often enough. Even if it gets you 10 'hards' per each card to get to one 'good' you're still making progress. And it's not like you're spending hours on it, it takes what, 30s per card every day?

You're not alone in thinking you're alone.
If you've got this far, then why stop now?
I've stopped studying hard because i'm lazy too and some things happened which had some impact on my japanese dreamland view, but i didn't stop learning, this we do everyday.
Some kanjis ARE confusing, there's nothing we can do other than repetition and memorization through constant use, this is how i've "learned" kanjis along all these years (since 90s, first ones i remember were SNES games imports), just from playing games and eroges.
Some kanjis were carved into my brain even if i didn't know their meaning.
Visiting japanese sites or blogs once in a while is good to get in touch, just be careful with slangs, in fact, it's probably best to stick with books or news websites since it's the correct form. What i've learned is the basic of the basic to just scrape by, studying on academic level is definitely not for me.

East Asians tend to be manipulative & sneaky though and love bulshitting and acting fake and using other people. Especially Chinese, but Japanese & Koreans do it to to a certain extent.
>> No. 28296 [Edit]
I think all races and ethnic groups have their flaws and strengths. That's always how I looked at it anyway, sure, there are the select few who differ from the norm of their cultural group but for the most part ethnic and even racial groups tend to have ways of acting that differ from other groups. So the way I look at it, every race and ethnicity is pretty crappy and the only way to get around having a crappy experience with them is to avoid getting into a situation where their crappier side would be exposed.

Part 1/3. Now you can begin to imagine what Fuminori experienced everyday (also: some of the most faithful depictions of 3D sex I have ever seen in part 3/3).

>favourite word
Cuddle (2nd place: Sleepy)
>least favourite word
Pick any word SJWs tend to use (typing any of them would be painful)
>what turns you on
Physical: Hugging, holding hands, showering/bathing. Other: Politeness, servitude (so I definitely do love maids), cuteness, purity, timelessness (being detached from most modern trends)
>what turns you off
Anything graphic, extreme or dirty, loudness in general, brunt/aggressive behaviour
>sound or noise you love
Sounds from the beach, rain (nature sounds in general), music boxes
>sound or noise you hate
Anything loud really (that isn't from my headphones when I set it to high volume on purpose), since my hearing's very sensitive... though if it's a natural sound such as thunder, I don't mind too much
>favourite curse word
I use "shit" the most, but my favorite is "doofus" though it's not much of a curse

>but I'm sad that the virtual reality age will only come late in my life
That can also be a good thing. The magic will be lost with virtual reality because it will be another reality.
The thing with 2D, at least in my eyes, is that there is always this basic difference of dimension that assures a pretty big distance in the end. This will be lost with VR, the 2D qts as we know them will get uncomfortably real. That fictional world will get too close, borders will fade, there will be constant influence between the worlds, constant influx from our reality into the virtual reality, shaping it, maybe deforming the beauty that simple drawings are able to sustain today.
>> No. 28277 [Edit]
VR doesn't have to mean photorealistic. It's just another way of experiencing 3d content.

I feel that the idealism of animation and drawings doesn't have to be lost just because it's seen through VR goggles. If presented properly, the immersiveness of VR can complement the perfect world of animations.
Of course, it remains to be seen exactly what 'properly' is. I hope for the best.
>> No. 28278 [Edit]
>I feel that the idealism of animation and drawings doesn't have to be lost just because it's seen through VR goggles
I agree. I've tested VR using phone based headsets and found that if it just covers your entire field of view it's good enough. A sense of depth is nice and does indeed add to the experience but is not completely necessary.
Besides that I've discovered there are already a few applications that will simulate an empty movie theater with your content on the screen. I tried watching an ep of yuruyuri like that, it was neat but gave me a bit of a headache half way in.
