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?

So, lately I have been encountering some problems with downloading anime eps with subs in my native language. First, for whatever reason there seems to a lot of fansubs that don't even do the OP and ED, and by not doing I am not saying they don't translate, but they literally take it out. I can't believe someone can do such a thing, why? Is there such a problem in the others language-spheres?
And the other problem is they don't number the order of the specials and such. So you end up with a bunch of files ordered by name only, with some eps going before the eps that came before it.
Are those problems exclusive to my country or do you guys have it too?
>> No. 34357 [Edit]
A lot of official subs don't do the OP and ED either.
>> No. 34359 [Edit]
>I can't believe someone can do such a thing, why?
A lot of people just skip these. It's incomprehensible to me.
>> No. 34360 [Edit]
Oh nevermind I misread what you meant by "don't do." Excising the OP/ED entirely seems pretty egregious. Maybe they're trying to cut down on filesize.

Basically, my whole day consisted of the following thoughts: I am tired of everything, but most of all of myself; I am untrained, I make the same mistakes all the time; there is no hope for me; I am disgusting. To be honest, I just want to fall asleep forever and either never wake up, or wake up in the ideal world from my point of view. Even when I look at other people who are better than me, or even at those who sincerely inspire me, for some reason this does not reassure me. They live in the same terrible world as I do, and they are not immune to the existential crisis, so it is essentially not important how good I am. I just can not cope with the absurdity of the world, it kills me. You can look at how normalfags go to work every day, study, give birth to children. I do not understand anything. This huge system scares me. The mechanistic behavior of such people can be ridiculed, and sometimes I do it when I am in a good mood, but then I admit to myself that I just cover my true negative feelings with irony, like Monty Python did. In the end, my actions are also mechanical, they are just not so approved by society (I sit at home all the time and other things of this kind). I just want to be a different person and live in a different world, completely isolated from other universes.

It is only as bad as you imagine it.
What is "I" but an imaginary idea? If you lie in warmth and comfort in your bed, everything is good enough. Goals can be set up to a day, not up to a life, there is no merit in comparing yourself to other individuals in a (despotic, my god!) system. The only person you should compare yourself to, is yourself.
The system is nothing but a big illusion. There is not much to understand. Everything is mechanized, you can blame whoever you want, but there is no exit(except in escapism) to a system which is not in the hands of something like human fate.
Accept your true self, create the best system for yourself. You have to live for yourself, it doesn't matter what anybody tells you, it's still FOR YOURSELF.

A certain image of Takami Chika from Love Live: sunshine has caused a fair bit of drama recently after it was removed due to complaints of it being too sexy.

Not too long ago something like this happened with another seemingly Innocent image due to the artist and character's background.

No, not at all. I consider cameltoe to be the impression of the womans vagina, but by crotchlines I meant the outlining of the crotch by the clothing. It's kinda hard to find examples of this, but in addition to the image OP was discussing there's this.

Oh. I never even noticed that was a thing before. I can't find any sex appeal in something that subtle.
>> No. 34193 [Edit]
Well, it's not a "thing" in the sense of being an actual recurring source of interest by many people. I mean, you can go to any hentai site and there won't be any tags about this, like you said it's too implicit. I guess it's more about aesthetics than sexual desire or anything.

The three types of bicycles are comfort, speed and mountain.
This is one for comfort.
* wide seat
* upright riding position
* high handles
* lowered frame-bar for easy mounting & dismounting
* usually comes with a basket in the front

Second going for a walk. Something about leisurely walking around without an aim while everyone else in the world is hurrying to do truly meaningless shit is cleansing and relaxing. It's not good if you live in crime or snow though.

Aside from that, hot tub or massages help temporarily, drinking hot tea, ASMR or sleep hypnosis. And this sounds counter-intuitive, but if I exercise it takes tension and stress out of my body, which in turn helps my ability to relax later.

Is it weird to have your laptop like this in bed? Like before you go to sleep or something. Not a great drawing but I'm drunk and not an artist either.

I tend to put serveral pillows under my head so my neck doesn't hurt. While I prefer lying down with my laptop like that over using my desktop when I'm tired, I tend to not do it a lot because the area where I place the laptop (so either the chest or bladder area) will just end up hurting a lot.

I used to, but I go out of my way now to seperate my sleeping area from my entertainment area. They're still in the same room, but the little bit of seperation helps me maintain my sleep routine.
Tablet keyboards are hell.

I own a few pillows like the one in this picture. In my opinion, using my laptop in bed with one of these pillows is significantly more comfortable than sitting at a cramped desk. I keep an extra monitor by my bedside in case I want to view anything in higher quality or use an extra screen. Very comfy.

January and September are the two times during the year that the sumo tournament and the start of the new anime season coincide.

Garage sales, pawn shops, online selling, everything goes so long as it is kept legal.
You can also recommend some good places to sell stuff that others might now know about or share resale knowledge that others might not know. You can also post pictures of what you intend to sell before you it's gone.

Aneki or Imouto, which do you like best?

For me the choice is obvious.

You define it for yourself.
The characters don't age, but how you see characters their age will change depending on your own age. Like, for instance, I used to think of Keitaro from Love Hina as an adult because I was a child at the time that I read and watched it. My perspective of him hasn't changed, because it's locked into my experience at that point in my life. But if I watch an anime now with a character in their early twenties, I think of them as children.
