I found a $100 bill on the ground today and I don't know what I should buy with it. If it helps I have no interests because everything sucks and 2D are just as slutty as 3D, nobody agrees because nobody looks past the surface.and if your disagree you're wrong and you can take it to /tat/ instead.
What should I do with these $100?

Wow, free pizza for the precinct.

Literally the stupidest thing you can do with loose money without any sort of identifying container or specific denominations is turn it in to the police/ guest services/ security, because nobody can return claimed money since any old idiot can say "uhhhhh I lost money"

If it isn't in a wallet, money clip, or envelope, just pocket it, whoever you turn it into will just use it to buy food or some shit anyway.

>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.

I feel lucky that I get to listen to the majesty of voice roids, especially Yuzuki Yukarin. Yukari's voice heals me and I like to listen to it when I'm sleepy. I also feel happy to be able to listen to yukkuris play games, they're so cute and funny.

incredibly cute works of art are a modern miracle
there has never been an age of artistic realization like this before, its a massive paradigm change from the "wonders of the ancient world" monstrosities that humanity used to be impressed by. in 20 years people will walk past burj dubai and whisper "gross its too big" to their cute little sister

You see it too?
Just like the Italian Renaissance is defined by works of art, so is now the Japanese Renaissance.
The people of the Italian Renaissance did not think at the time 'we are in the Renaissance', so it is today that we are experiencing a certain culture of art.
Sure, there may be fault-finders, but I'm sure the Italian Renassance had those who viewed their 'trendy art' of the time as distasteful.

Japanese anime art will no doubt be a permenant feature in tomorrow's history books.

Be honest, how do you feel about traps?

>> No. 30929 [Edit]
I can handle a little androgyny in my anime. It's typically not too big of an issue and is usually presented as a gag to begin with.

It's not as if every anime is becoming Houro Musuko, and it will be a long time before we reach that point, if we ever do.

>>30872
Novelty is a huge part of pornography and why we consume it, I think the presence of the "otokonoko" trope in h-doujins offers a type of novelty. It's as simple as that.

Are traps gay? Yes but do not worry my friend, sexuality is a bit more fluid than you may think, as time has demonstrated to us; Even the mighty warriors known as "samurai" had sexual relations with each other.
>> No. 31000 [Edit]
Traps are so last year, anon, we've moved into better things like ss.
Many trap hmanga still line my exhentai favourites but they're never clicked anymore.
>> No. 31017 [Edit]
I don't particularly like them. I'm of the opinion that women should be feminine and men should be masculine, not some abomination in-between the two. So I probably have more respect for full-blown hard gays than trapfags. Also trap ERPers have really gotten out of hand the past couple years. Now everyone wants to be a trap. It's pretty disgusting.

Too bad i won't be able to afford Gateboxes or be alive until then, still, it's closer than ever.
Sexbots may become a thing in the future but i'd like to see these Gateboxes succeed instead.

Honestly this thing seems like a stupid gimmick. Sure it might seem interesting, but after some weeks I can only imagine it'd begin to get repetitive, responses, actions, etc. That leading to a less believable experience, which I'm not sure if it has in the first place. Because really, anyone buying one of these things has that in mind.

I also can't help wonder how often these things might end up breaking if kept for longer periods of time. It must be somewhat complicated at least, right? With all the features it has. How long will the company support it, and how long will they last? $3k is no small amount of money. I really can't imagine how on earth it could be worth that.

>This is the true otaku love, right here.
Isn't this whole thing more about companionship than love? Think about it. Is everyone who buys one "in love" with the character, or are they after buying it? Doubt it.

>Younger people tend to speak in very different ways using differnt lingo and phrases you might not be familiar with, making it challenging to relate to them or discuss things with them.
Makes sense, I guess. Wouldn't know because English isn't my first language, I only communicate in English on the Internet and I don't really talk with people in real life.

>It's hard enough to relate to characters and stories when it's set in a different country with a different culture,
I don't think the country or culture matters that much for relating to the characters. Sure there's some culture-related stuff that might be confusing but I think most of it is pretty global, else there'd be way less people enjoying media from countries with different cultures.

> but then you add on that media targeting a different age demographic too and it becomes that more alienating.
For people who don't share the taste of the majority of the target audience but that doesn't mean that a lot of people outside the target demographic can't enjoy the work too.
Also the target audience of anime isn't only young people, there's a lot series who are for older people. Almost everyone reads manga in Japan regardless of age and even in western countries (I think) quite a few old people read comics.

>If not, good on you for challenging norms but exceptions don't make rules.
The majority tends to be part of the target demographic (since they obviously try to make it appealing for the target audience) but I wouldn't call people outside exceptions since they are not few and it's also common for good fictional works to not only be appealing for people inside their target audience.

Do you mean 3D as in live-action tv or anime that uses 3d models?
I'm assuming the former in which case, I actually did watch those for a while until I got bored of them. One that I used to like was the show Monk. I hate to sound like the difficult sort who doesn't take any advice but what I've said so far was true for me.
>> No. 30979 [Edit]
>>30976
Not only live-action tv series, but shows in general, including news-casting, documentaries, contests, etc. Maybe you have fun subliminally-learning and just haven't noticed it or something like that. For example, a week ago or so I stumbled upon a youtube clip with a Japanese show of people trying to climb stairs drenched in slime. It was a hilarious, none of the contestants were mocked and the spirit of the show was innocuous. i.e. good fun at nobody's expense and it was noticeable how the participants were enjoying it.
>I hate to sound like the difficult sort who doesn't take any advice
In your defence, it's not like you asked for advice either.

would masturbation become more enjoyable if i started taking male fertility drugs or would it be just about the same?
>> No. 30915 [Edit]
I can't say for sure but I think it probably would. I've got almost no libido and rarely masturbate anymore. If/when I do it, it feels like more of a dirty time wasting chore with almost no pleasure to it. I'd almost compare it to using the restroom when nature calls. Anything would be more enjoyable than that, and normals seem to consider sex to be the best thing ever.

I don't know about taking drugs but I do know that abstaining from masturbation for a while really helped me enjoy it more. Maybe you could try it.
>> No. 30918 [Edit]
For me the main source of enjoyment out of masturbation is reading doujins without that I don't really like it so I might not be the best help but I doubt wasting your money on that would be worth it especially if you're a neet (you could try it out, if it's not that much and you really want it, I guess but if it's just a thought that went through your head, don't bother).

Try what the second anon said, it sounds reasonable and is free.

I don't think I ever really related to another character before. They are always so much better than me.
>> No. 30804 [Edit]
Self-insert is when the writer writes himself into the story.
The jargon of 'self-insert' is used by hypocrites who love characters 'they can relate to', but when they can't it's 'shitty self-insert'.

Is it too much to ask for a little courtesy from these people?

This. What OP was looking for was "How do you project onto characters?".
>> No. 30806 [Edit]
I can't and it causes me much angst. There's almost no characters like me, in any way.
Those that I can relate to are there to be hated and ridiculed.

and i had only seen two other eps of this show, but i realized that i understood every word in the song regardless. i never studied japanese at all, but i think that after watching many years of subbed anime, i'm now japanese
or at least i speak the language fluently

That's nothing. Come back when you're a true master of Nihongo and know Japanese better than the Japanese (which also includes knowing old and new chink since you have to know about the origin of the kanji and difference to modern chinese). When you're able to translate the originals of the 古事記 and the 日本書紀 into modern Japanese during your sleep while pointing out the errors those other translators made whose grasp of the language is not even close to yours. When you know all dialects including the dead ones and speak them fluently. When the sounds of you staring, eating, sleeping, fapping and butt wiping happens to sound exactly like the onomatopoeia.
Until then, my true-grorious-nipponjin-brother-to-be.

You can't be absolutely certain what the lyrics are unless you have literal written lyrics to translate from (even then the words might not mean what they literally say).
Since they're a business, they can't do guess-work at the lyrics, and I guess they can't be bothered sourcing the lyrics for every OP and ED for every show they do, so they just don't altogether.

Fan-subbers can afford to be wrong. Now, if you actually paid attention to OP/ED subs, you should have noticed that about half-way through a show (episodes wise) the lyrics change, this is because the OP/ED is released on CD and come with lyrics.

What do you think about IRC and other chat services like discord
Do you use them? I think it would be cool if I found one where I could jump in and casually talk about things like the game I'm playing right now, but so far I haven't

IRC was really nice. I believe only Freenode is active and growing (slowly) nowadays though, which is saddening.
>> No. 30719 [Edit]
IRC is not that bad.

Discord, though... after witnessing a couple myself, and also founding my own this software is a minefield of circlejerks, facebook memes and bizarre community conflicts. It may be possible to occasionally find decent places in it, but overall its design with trivially created servers and system of invites breeds mostly splintered messes of incestual cliques on a scale and frequency that IRC can't even compare to.
>> No. 30721 [Edit]
>>30719

So your own server turned into this? Maybe you invited the wrong people then. (You can make it so only you can invite people if that's a problem) The thing with discords built in meme messages, this is annoying as fuck. I wish they would get rid of this and make it more professional.

If you go looking for other servers on google or something yeah you're only going to find normie crap. And discord does attract more of these people because of how it's marketed and since it's more user friendly, but it's not like you have to interact with these people.

>minefield of circlejerks

IRC and imageboards are full of this. IRC is less normies but the communities are full of their own sub cultural circlejerks even if it's anti-normie ones.

No, my own one's still relatively clean, but others aren't so lucky. Poor management / incompetence to invite bullshit with excess channel splitting (whatever happened to having one channel, IRC-style, to keep things more focused?), emotes, polls and the other cool features makes the good old days of limited technology seem better by comparison, without all this new crap to ruin your discussion quality with.

It's true that circlejerks are everywhere but I've not managed to encounter the "hivemind spread across 10 servers for eceleb whoring" thing outside Discord, at least with imageboards or IRC channels there's usually only a couple of boards or channels dedicated to a particular group, but the Discord rabbit hole reaches far and wide. Maybe it's just Discord being that much bigger.
