I've been noticing a lot of this black-and-white motif, symbolism or whatever in Japanese entertainment.
I'm assuming it has something to do with the ying-yang thing.

in MGS2 Raiden had white hair and Snake had dark brown
Aldnoah/Zero had it with the two main characters
And pic related even has Kodaka have a mix of blonde and black hair.

There can be; I just do not believe you are one who is capable on deciding which is which.

I noticed it when watching Kanokon,
One has dark hair, one has light hair.
One has long hair, one has short hair.
One has big boobs, one has small boobs.
One is loud, one is quiet.
They are both whores.

I wondered if the goal was to make the two characters cover every base. I felt that I could apply some of these to other love triangles I was seeing at the time, like in Macross Frontier.

At any rate Yozora from Haganai's haircut is very normal for a random bishoujo series, so position a black-haired character with someone else enough and you may end up with a few black-and-white pairs.

No need to be so strict, some activity is better than none at all, right?

Anyway I quite like the VVVVVV soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2A6DC93C708F5FFA
>> No. 27573 [Edit]

I really really love this song. I'm sure this won't be my favorite song in maybe a year, but boy do I love the lyrics.
>> No. 27574 [Edit]
I can't say that I have a 'favorite' song as I listen to too many different kinds of songs to just pick a single one. I do have to say that I rather it be a vocaloid song if it had to be anything, though.

Unfortunately, the song I've been listening to quite a bit lately isn't a vocaloid song, but it's still pretty decent nonetheless: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOD6qwQGP_A

Kia gold. It's a good combo of dark but not a black out and warm but not bright colors makes it easy on the eyes late at night.

I noticed there was a Lain theme and I was using that, which is nice because my waifu.

I think I'll switch to bios though because it's so harsh, it hurts so good and because the Lain theme's background doesn't tile properly on 1920x1080.

Thanks for bumping this old as hell thread.

Ever since the age of 5 I've been picking and biting my nails and skin. I've always kept my nails really short to the point where they can't be used for anything and I peel the skin on my fingertips so much that sometimes I expose the sensitive layer that hurts. This is a habit I probably picked up from my dad from me watching him do it at such a young age.
Since last year, I've been keeping my clippings in an empty pill container. I'm starting to get attached to my collection. When I don't have my container with me, I will hold on to my peeled nail and/or skin until I can deposit them in the right place. What used to be just an act of nervousness or being bored has now become a hobby of mine.

Does anyone else do the same thing? Or do you have another bad habit like this?

I pick my nose when I feel no one's looking. I know I shouldn't but I can't help it. After a while it starts to feel clogged up and gets on my nerves. Talking to a doctor about it once and he gave me some nasal sprays which didn't help much.

I also sometimes talk to myself. Helps me think to voice my thoughts.
>> No. 27541 [Edit]
As long as no one is looking and you make sure that your hands are clean before and after doing it, I don't see how picking your nose is a bad habbit.

Talking to yourself is a good thang I feel, its funny.
>> No. 27542 [Edit]
It will eventually stretch out your nostrils and if you aren't careful you might damage some of the more exposed blood vessels and start a bleeding. Granted, you probably won't die from it, but it's annoying.
>> No. 27543 [Edit]
Really? If I continually do it will I get a nigger's nose? Gross

Vol 6: http://www.mediafire.com/download/f7d0r3lw3dmxdas

We finished translating the first EX CD (it's in QC now). Unfortunately we made a stupid mistake and started translating them in wrong order - we translated winter before summer. If it bothers you you can wait a couple of weeks, we've already begun working on the other EX CD.

We translated a series of EX vids in which each character introduces the other 5. Here they are:

I don't want to bore you with an in-dept report regarding our future plans so I'll just keep it short.
We still don't really plan to translate Vol 4-6. Various reasons. They are fun CDs so if you understand Japanese you should give them a shot.
I kinda plan to translate self-introduction vids for vol 1/2/3. When (hopefully 'when', not 'if') I'll get that done I'll post them in this thread but I intend to sage it since it's not particularly important anyway.

Most importantly Ririkuru is getting a VN! It has its own vndb entry now: https://vndb.org/v18057
All the details are unknown yet pretty much, all we know is that it'll be called 'Ririkuru Rainbow Stage'.
We actually kinda sorta would like to translate it but we'll have to read through it first to figure out if we're up for the job.

Whats your favourite female anime character archetype? Twintail tsundere? Dandere with light-colored short hair? Oppai loli?

Mine would be girls with black hair, braids and glasses who haven't talked to a man in years.

32 here, in the same boat. I haven't exactly lost interest in sex, but I have more or less lost interest in the idea of having actual sex, if that makes sense. At this point if an actual girl showed interest in me I'm not sure I'd even know what to do about it or even be especially inclined to bother trying, because I basically have no idea how to have that kind of relationship with someone. Plus, the idea of actually having another person sleeping in my bed with me just weirds me right the fuck out. I don't care if people want to come over to my apartment and sit on my couch and watch TV with me or something, but my bedroom is sort of my private space, and the idea of another person actually being in there with me for any significant amount of time makes me very uncomfortable. Plus, I never found 3D women to be hugely appealing in the first place, and women the same age as me look less and less appealing each year. Something tells me the problem is only going to get worse as time progresses. So I have more or less concluded that sex for me is in the same category as climbing Mt. Everest or something: it's something I could probably do if I had enough desire and motivation to seriously undertake it, but every time I start to take all of the practical considerations for such an undertaking into account, I find that the desire and motivation doesn't really exist for me. Fapping to 2D loli is probably going to be it for me, unless I decide to hire a prostitute or something, which doesn't really appeal to me either.

Also, agreed that Rika is cute, although I always preferred Satoko.

Black hair, tomboys, onee-sans... genki, dandere, and kuudere types... Those NEET girls are pretty cute too. It's hard to just make a list because good characters are more than just simple lists of traits or tropes.

So like, some dudes from the irc channel wanted to play pictionary and stuff.

This here is the site we're using.
It's not great but we'll try and find something better latter I guess.

Join us around 18:00 utc give or take.

Bumpity bump!

We decided to host another pictionary next week. Saturday the 8th of August 2015, 18:00 UTC. As always feel free to join midway through the game, it doesn't really matter either way. Everybody is welcome.

We'll use the site linked in this post >>25602. Hope to see you there!
>> No. 27395 [Edit]
Aaand we're done. As you can tell we moved it from Saturday to Sunday because lots of people couldn't join us yesterday.

We went through barely 34 riddles even though the game took longer than the last time around. We had 7 players again, although some latecomers joined by the time we were pretty much done.

It was fun so let's do it again sometime!
