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).

>if you ever do interact with adult men then everything is sexualised to them
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.

I also wish I knew about online shopping and what it could offer from a younger age as well. Particularly in regards to books, I could have got my hands on far more material that I really should have read earlier.

I wish I kept better backups of all my data. It's became something of a hobby of mine to archive things I think are cool and I've managed to lose so much stuff out of sheer incompetence. Mostly personal artwork that I'm never getting back.
>> No. 32305 [Edit]
Definitely the book thing. I don't think I ever read anything worth reading until around the age of 16. It was mostly fiction that I can barely recall the stories in.
I especially wish I had read Schopenhauer earlier. Maybe not 'World' initially, but I would give 14 year old me his short essays to read. People (teachers, parents, etc.) never tell you how bad life is and that its problems are intractable.
I think if I had learned that earlier I would have been more at peace, wanted fewer things. Maybe I would have mastered the art of taking it easy, instead of wanting and stressing over thing like I still do today.

Even Disney Renaissance movies from the early 90's don't look as good when compared side by side to modern Anime series, they look pretty mediocre honestly.
>> No. 32224 [Edit]
It could use more detail sure, but I wouldn't say that looks all 'that' bad.
>> No. 32225 [Edit]
They look much better when compared to TV cartoons from 2000's and on, but compared to Anime they do look kind of bad, they look a bit better in movement though.

Also why was my picture deleted but OP's one wasn't?
>> No. 32241 [Edit]
One of the mods must not like Disney girls much.

Arby’s has created a chibi character mascot with an “#ArbysWaifu” hashtag.

How is that not enough? A large corporation is exploiting the waifu concept on main stream media and OP was asking how people with waifus feel about that.
God forbid we give the waifu board a bit of activity and show the board doesn't have to just be people talking endlessly about their personal waifu, nah we have to go and toss this into the catch all board that already gets plenty of posts while screwing up all the post replies in the process. Thanks a lot.
>> No. 32175 [Edit]
Isn't it just one twitter post? I hardly consider that mainstream media at all, considering that maybe a few thousand people maybe saw it. Not like it was being shown in ad campaigns on TV or something. It's pretty obvious what most people here think about others misusing the word, some dislike it and get annoyed while others don't care much. The discussion is mostly about the other aspects of it, bashing corporate marketing BS and how people on other parts of the internet view it in other ways as the OP mentioned pedo/racist/whatever.

I get really triggered when people misunderstand art like that.
Thanks for making the explanation short too, I was about to write a giant rant trying to clarify why the classic ("western") way of art training is the correct way but that's unnecessary I guess.
>> No. 32178 [Edit]
I don't think they are even claiming to give a shit about otaku subculture. The moe subculture has become an internet meme and a lot of normalfags are changing their twitter pfps to cute anime girls for brownie points on social media. Arby's saw this was a new trend and jumped on it.
The point I am trying to get at is that no one really gives a fuck about otaku subculture anymore except us and other small internet communities. This is all a game to them, especially to Arby's considering that they can make money off of being "hip with the kids".

>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.

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.

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.
>> No. 32042 [Edit]
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.

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.
>> No. 32015 [Edit]
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!
