do you still watch anime?
>> No. 31672 [Edit]
Still? Been watching it for years and don't see myself stopping. Still plenty of stuff I have in queue to watch.
>> No. 31673 [Edit]
Yup, but I do find myself struggling to keep up with currently airing stuff more and more each season. At the time of posting this I still haven't started a single anime from the current season and while I did get in 3ep today I'm still very behind on most of the shows I have picked up.

I can't imagine stopping, there's so many series I want to see. The amount I watch varies because of other hobbies, but I do really love it.
>> No. 31678 [Edit]
I still watch anime, but much less than when I first got into it. I still love anime, but I'm not reliant on it for happiness anymore. Now, it's just a thing I like. Also, I mainly watch slice of life now, and it's hard for me to digest more than a couple episodes of SoL at a time despite liking it a lot.

They say you learn something new every day. Let's see if that statement is true!

ITT post something new you learned today. Trivia knowledge is more than welcome.

I learnt the difference between noir and neo-noir.

Noir was heavily dependent on the era it was released in. It was a time when overt sex and violence was forbidden in film and technological limitations prevented the presence of colour however it was these very restrictions that caused noir to have the impact that it did. With those restrictions lifted, violence and sex have to be much more overt to have the same emotional impact on today's desensitised audience than what was necessary for the audiences of the '40s.

Neo-noir is an attempt to create the same impact that noir did despite the technological and cultural changes that have occurred since the '40s. Some believe that noir to be an inimitable cultural phenomenon that will only ever exist within the bubble of time that was present during its creation. Others have continued to experiment with the neo-noir genre and prove otherwise.

Personally, after watching Chinatown, I can safely say that I don't get it. I'll probably need to watch it again to get it though. Preferably with subs since I seemed to have missed most of the dialogue.

Yesterday I learned that x64 Windows has only one HAL.DLL, because the x86_64 is so standardized that there's little configuring OEMs can do. x86 versions of Windows have a few HAL.DLLs for the inclusion or absence of stuff like APIC.

Today I learned there are 100% Animal Crossing speedruns. They average for 70 hours but the world record is 63 hours. And the runners don't take breaks.

It used to be that if you google 241543903 you get images of people sticking their heads in a freezer. Now googling 241543903 brings up images instructing people to google 241543903 to see images of people's heads in freezers.

I finally found something that explains in laymens terms why we consider time the 4th dimension, what a dimension really is, and what the dimensions 0-10 are. A dimension is really a way of measuring the location of something along a certain axis of displacement.

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!

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.

Do you guys hide your weeb stuff or other possibility embarrassing things? Say for example a relative is coming to visit, or maybe there's stuff you don't want anyone to see in general?

I don't hide the weeb stuff (my family knows what I am) but I do clean up. I don't want them to see anything near how messy and filthy it usually is because I was extremely tidy when I lived at home. Now my apartment looks like one of those news reports about hikkis.
>> No. 31648 [Edit]
No, I don't hide it, and I don't like it when people hide it. Everyone is allowed to show what they like, so why should it be any different to us? As the guy above me said though, I do clean my room when someone is going to visit, because it's usually very messy.
>> No. 31651 [Edit]

I was playing overwatch on voice chat and someone started calling everyone over where he was to look at something. There's nothing there but on his end apparently two characters clipped into each other and froze mid air or something so I'm watching this guy freaking out at nothing and expecting a reaction from the rest of the team until we tell him we can't see it. We move on but the concept sticks with me. Has there ever been a virtual reality story that's had literal physical differences in how different players will view reality? You're playing the same game but are you really? In online play you always see it in these little things like how people will only see certain bushes if they have their graphic settings high enough. If an online game is your whole world though it'd be fucking your perception of the world. A dead team mate could be floating by you, only by you and people would think you're crazy. You might be the only one who can't see a sunset your party is in awe of. Even though I kind of hate dystopian cyber stories I like this idea that in the future resources like good food and shelter are cheap enough that all their money is spent on getting the highest tier computer because mmo's are blowing up and that's where you see the economic difference between people. There's not some enforced hierarchy between the rich and poor. There's no longer a strong IRL difference between classes but they literally see different worlds. People build communities around what they specifically see or don't see and that creates a culture divide out of superiority and salt.
What are some game mechanics that still haven't been touched on in fiction?
>> No. 31632 [Edit]
it's not a VR game but dead space 3's co-op mode worked like that, showing player one things player two couldn't see and vice versa. I remember it was one of the very few things people universally liked about that game

Focusing on getting a dream job is pointless. Just start working now, whatever works, focus on jobs that will let you slack a bit even if you get paid a bit less. Minimum wage is high in many places now anyway. Live a lifestyle with as little expenses as possible, save all you can. Maybe in a few years after you've saved a decent amount you can buy a small house in a rural area (real cheap, buy in full), and cut back working after that for a while or go part time. That way you're never busting your ass at a shitty job, and you'll have something to work towards. That's what I hope works out in my case at least. I can very much relate to those thoughts and would certainly do the same myself if I could. Never is pleasant being and living around so many people, a life of peace quiet solitude is the only thing I want.

I mentioned in >>31616 that I already have a shitty minimum wage job that pays 14hr. I fucking hate it, I'd rather die than live this lifestyle of the terrible 9-5 grind.

Part time however, that's actually not a bad idea. I can live with such a thing if the hours aren't unbearably long like a full time position just in case my plans don't work out.
>> No. 31633 [Edit]
Yes but also in general.
It's not so much the waste of time but the lack of willpower that makes me not fulfill my personal and given goals.

>they're only as good as the house is bad?
Sorry, I worded my post badly. I meant that it's a cultural thing more than an architectural one. The things I listed is why kotatsu are popular in Japan, which comes down to lack of other forms of either heating or keeping the house insulated.
>> No. 31281 [Edit]
Maybe its not too late for the kotatsu to catch hold in the west, but I doubt it. Imagine some big western slob steps in dogshit on the way home and walks into his house without taking his shoes off then sits at kotatsu.

Two Japanese films I've seen are 'Goemon' and 'Dai Nipponjin'.

'Goemon' is a fun and well-done film to watch, background is Goemon is Japanese Robin Hood.
'Dai Nipponjin' is interesting, what I took from it is it's a film about the degradation Capitalism and the post-war period has done to Japan and the Japanese people. In particular, making them weak and greedy.

I find it a tad bit weird and slightly annoying how people keep treating the bombers in The Last Jedi like some sort of mistake. The common complaint is that bombs wold not be able to fall onto the target because there is no gravity in space. It's a shitty movie and I don't give much of a crap about starwars, but this is dead wrong and clearly so.
Maybe it's because I'm complete fucking brain damaged retarded moron, but the way these bombers work makes perfect sense to me, and I can't understand why no one else sees it.
An object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. There's nothing stopping these bombs that are being ejected from the ship. As soon as they leave the ship they're being propelled by their own momentum -not gravity- . It's so simple to me but somehow everyone seems to fail to understand this. The reason the bombs fall while in the ship is because there's artificial gravity in the ship, it's what keeps people's feet on the ground, it's how that remote to release the bombs fell and was almost missed. Gravity inside of the ship pulled the bombs down towards the exposed bottom and momentum carries them the rest of the way. Did people expect the bombs to just stop the moment they left the ship or something?
Besides, the ship they were attacking was so massive that it might have had it's own faint gravitational pull anyway.

I've watched a ton of Sion Sono movies this past month. They're all really enjoyable, in one way or another. I think the ones I disliked the most were Exte and Strange Circus. Exte was kind of boring and the twist/ending to Strange Circus actually felt kind of anticlimactic.

His best one was Cold Fish imo. That movie was scary as hell, and I like to think I have a pretty high tolerance for horror. He said he wanted to depict "a feeling of complete hopelessness" and I felt that in the movie. It's chilling. I highly recommend it if you like horror/psychological stuff.

I also absolutely loved Love Exposure, it doesn't feel like a 4 hour movie.

His movies are just different.

I live in a small two bedroom house, with a decent sized yard in a shitty small rural town.

>Do you live with the folks, rent an apartment, or what?
I barely get anything to live off of but I do have a roommate who has taken me in in exchange of the little bit I do get and some help around the house. Mowing grass, housework, etc. But it's a rental.

Do you know any nice places to visit in Japan?
Especially anime related places.

I plan to go to Japan this year and try to find some less touristy places to go to.
The thread will most likely still be up so I can post some pictures I make.

Does any one recognize the place in this picture?

>Yes. Go to Kyoto or Nara. Get your ass out of the city. Don't spend more than a few days in Tokyo (make sure to spend a couple of hours at Akasaka and the imperial gardens, but otherwise avoid the concrete jungle, it is basically like any other big city in the West just in Japanese and with a lot more people crowding the place), the rest of Japan has a lot more character.
We plan to stay at last a week in the Kyoto area and get a 14 day railpass to visit some more remote places.
I have never been in any city outside of Europe, I don't know how much I'll like Toyko but I'm not a fan of big cities anyway.

>https://anime-tourism.jp/. This is what you're looking for.

This one is nice. I don't recognise most places though.

>Have only been to the various Lucky Star locations in Saitama and Ooarai (twice) so far. First is a little bit depressing since you can see how its popularity is fading (quite literally, the flags in Satte or whatever you call them almost have no color anymore), second is still going well (they really know how to promote it).

The Lucky Star locations are a bit remote but I hope I can find time for it.

Ooari is from that one Girls and Panzer Episode?
