Tonight or tomorrow night will probably be the last night this summer that I get to watch anime outside on my roof at night. There is something special to me about watching Japanese cartoons at night with the stars overhead and my garden surrounding me. I see meteors, satellites, bats, moths and occasionally owls flying around up there pretty regularly. A couple weeks ago I was watching Aho Girl around midnight and a pair of red tailed hawks flew by circling each other yelling and generally mixing it up a lot more than Wikipedia would probably say that diurnal animals do on the average night.
Next May or June I will watch more anime on my rooftop.

For years I've had the idea of making youtube videos, primary anime reviews. One of the main reasons being the slim hope I'd be able to at least make 'some' income off it as unlikely as that might be to happen. Well I finally took the plunge and went ahead with it. I wanted to at least get a few vids out before posting about it here. I should warn though that they've been pretty horrible so far and as such you shouldn't expect much. Should come as no surprise that someone who has very little interaction with people offline would have trouble speaking so the videos can be a little numbly, for that I apologize.

My channel can be found here for anyone curious.

That's true, also probably have to buy an expensive binural mic and make sure your background noise is very quiet. Perhaps it would be better to go after the 'unintentional asmr' niche of things that weren't originally intended to give tingles or that's not the main goal, but it still does. If you pretend like you aren't doing asmr on purpose, but make your videos relaxing, long form and about interesting topics people will tune in. Think Bob Ross for example, even though the focus is on painting, really you tune in for Bob Ross and his relaxing voice and general atmosphere. You could be the otaku Bob ross

Kenshiro and Guts.

I can't be entirely sure if there are more since my mind is as scattered as a box full of puchidol. I do know that I was definitely inspired by a couple more, but I feel that these two have definitely had a sizable impact on me.

My adopted grandfather, the only man left in my family with a clue regarding finances and frugality. His only major fault is having been so laid back, so hands off. So now nobody has a clue what they're doing.

While stereotypical, I really admire Nikola Tesla. The schizoid in me connects with his desire to just invent shit in his lab away from other people.

From history I admire a lot of people. Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Jackson, Caesar Augustus, Agrippa. There's more but they escape me at the moment.

Once a week, fill out the OP questions and let us know what you're up to!
Think of it as a FRIDAY NIGHT thread like on other sites, only you can post any day of the week at any hour of your choosing since NEETs don't have a schedule or any reason to look forward to the weekend.
Or, just a wordier and more demanding alternative to the daily report thread as a more relevant example.

I'll probably play Left 4 Dead 2 again but I hope I don't play anything.

>What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?
Anything that has to do with Sonic Forces, I've grown to like the theories people have about the new character, Infinite.

>Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?
Not yet, no.

>Are you reading any manga or literature?
Only required readings that are as depressing and doom&gloom as you would expect them to be because old writers had a fetish for suffering.

>What're you going to have to eat and drink today?
I would like poison but a sandwich is nice too so it'll probably be that because i dont have any spare poson lying around.

Are people who go outside purposefully dressed in a way that is meant to be attractive engaging in a generalized form of sexual harassment or is noticing someone's cleavage, panties, crotch bulge, etc. and then averting eye contact from it the punishment one deserves for exiting the home?
1 post omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 30314 [Edit]
They're advertising themselves sexually. It's meant to attract chads, which they're okay with harassing them. But not anyone below 'their level'. If you do it anyways at the least you'll be shamed "creep, weirdo, virgin". If you're unlucky she'll moan until other men come and "save" her by threatening/attacking you.

Be careful around these types of women OP. They're completely unaware of what they're doing. If you ask the woman they're "Just like, being fashionable and having fun ohmaygawd". Bitches that don't know they're in heat.

As despicable as normals are and as contradictory and hypocritical lack of modesty in fashion is, the world doesn't go around you. Nobody owes you anything.

>world doesn't go around you

Nor does it about an individual, however the legal concept of nuisance is wide ranging. Any annoyance to the community can potentially be considered a nuisance. Herders, polluters, people with loud music, etc. are often prevented from poisoning the commons or at least regulated to the degree which they can take advantage of public spaces. Which groups are or are not regulated is based somewhat arbitrary on public perception of the degree of damage that various groups are doing. Public perception in turn is made up of the sum of many individual opinions. A century ago the types of public displays described in OP may well have resulted in an arrest. So the concept of what is and isn't legal in this sphere is malleable and varies in different jurisdictions.
In almost all locations people may owe a debt to the public because of immodesty, its the just degree of what is acceptable that differs. Those types will always be pushing the limits in this sphere because of their predatory sexual personality traits. Just because they're haven't been reigned in for decades on end doesn't mean that it can never happen.

At the risk of sounding really immature and ignorant,
how good of an option is prison as an alternative to employment and responsibilities or homelessness?

I've been tossing this idea around in my head since I was very, very young. I always wondered why the homeless would not prefer the free medicine, food, clothing, shelter, bathing, in-house libraries, cable television, and socialization with like-minded degenerates (maybe not applicable for us) guaranteed by every jail or prison in the world.

Why not us NEETs? Everyone here is always worrying for their futures, and the unsustainable and fragile status of NEEThood. Have you considered prison when our time runs out as I have?

I worry about the blacks of course, but it doesn't seem difficult at all to get put into solitary confinement. Some are put into solitary merely for affiliation with certain groups--you could just claim to be a white nationalist during your screening, and your spot in solitary is reserved for you instantly. Or you could just spit on a guard and get taken there by force... I simply see absolutely no cons (no pun intended) to prison living, so long as you stick to solitary confinement. Every bad thing I hear about the place has to do with the other inmates exclusively.

Just seems to me like a very advanced version of welfare/disability.

Your thoughts?

Picture related, a very good book about how the prison life can be preferable to the outside world, though it goes without saying that Japanese prison is vastly different (and superior) to Western prisons.

I saw this video once where a guy went in for stealing something and he had to eat his own fingers. He ate two and a half but that wasn't enough so he was burned alive. That was in south america though but makes me think prison is not a good place
>> No. 30250 [Edit]
Getting thrown in to prison is my greatest fear, no lie, if I ever know they are coming for me beforehand, I would just kill myself, for real, no questions, I would NOT want to be alive in prison for a single day.

I completely agree. I'd rather be homeless and living on the streets than that.

The mobile game Sid Story is a card collecting game with anime style versions of historical characters. Today they updated it to display more historically accurate images of the characters.

What other April 1st gags have you come across this year?

>>30051 What >>30058 said. It should only take a few minutes. Their recent updates even made it so there's an icon on the normal(feed) cards that show if they've been idolized or not. You can also filter it to show only the feed characters.

I wish they would make the girls in sid story look more like the people they're based on. Like at least the clothes and hair color.

I'd like to see less fujoshi bait characters, and maybe more consistency with some of the lower level card designs. They range from deformed chibi girls to weird eeg creatures. If nothing else I'd be happy if they just removed those disgusting looking bear cards. Those things are just so... like really what in the fuck are those things and what are they doing there?

Although it could be useful for my supports, even more than I think, I want to use them to max out my future SR/UR Nozomi if/when I get her.

Also, I play the game as casually as possible, so that doesn't really matter for the moment, even if my skills are awful at the moment because of my lack of playing the game more than once a day to get the single gem.

This is a CYOA where you take control of Man, a shut-in NEET with nothing going for him. As a general rule, unless more than one person inputs the same command I'll just write off the most recent post in the thread.
Because this is more of a fun activity than a creative writing session this is going here instead of /cr/.

http://www.stargazedcharts.com seems to be officially offline permanently, whois says the domain name expired in November.

I am posting this thread as a place for people to appreciate and remember Stargazed and any other formerly available internet resources which they might miss. After the initial excitement of the start of a new anime season, usually the next big event of the season was the release of the MK I version of next season's chart and the anticipation that came along with it. That was the way that it was for quite a while, so big thanks to Stargazed, they gave western anime fans some really nice service for many years. I hope that my adblocking habits aren't part of what drove them out of the game.
