I HATE it when I have the misfortune of talking to someone cancerous online, especially when it's someone who obsessively hates on anime for no reason. I try to just ignore it and walk away, but the thought just stays on the back of my mind. I can't watch anime or play video games because my brain keeps telling me to go back and fight! And then, I waste several hours of my life on some stupid internet fight instead of doing something I'd actually enjoy. How do you guys deal with this?

Well, then the real issue is that these hangouts are filled with cowards. If you can't reliably put your (collective) foot down and kick the hijackers and pretenders, than it's on you as a whole. The aforementioned will go wherever they can to get the attention they crave, so it's your duty to kick them out and preserve the integrity of what you have, otherwise you lose your right to complain.

no earnest group of posters no matter how large will ever be able to withstand the assault of a single determined and skilled griefer.
sure grieferism is no longer fashionable or "cool" in the modern era, but their long lost skills and way of life has yet to be reckoned with in any sort of effective manner. sometimes old religions just fade away

My mentally abusive, alleged "father" threw a remote control hard at me, this evening. Before that, I said that even his favourite mainstream media outlet SVT has said that basically no migrants have gotten jobs, recently (or "newly arrived" as they creepily are called, here, to explain to Swedes that they are here to forever stay and replace us); either because they haven't been qualified or don't want any, as their article said. He immediately came up with some migrant that had changed tires on his car, the other day, and that he worked "far more effectively" than the others around him. I said I would rather have seen that that job had gone to someone from here (they automatically get jobs as all Nordics now are consider second-grade people, by the state, but he's too unintelligent to get that, despite that it's been said it will be done by those he has voted in). Then when he realized I was right, he as usual started to point out how worthless I am. I pointed out that it's hard to get back to life when you have been harassed to despair by the psychiatry (he, by the way, has several times commended the worst of those psychiatrists and said "he only wanted to help me" and that my life would be good if I had listened (they wanted to commit me, give me ECT and antipsychotics, mainly for wearing "odd clothes" (normal, nowadays), being a vegetarian and wanting to become a farmer)). He said something nasty I can't remember so I said I would be better off dead. He said something like "die then," to which I replied that I actually think I might have breast cancer so maybe I will (I've realized I have faint, wide lumps where they shouldn't be, on my chest, that definitely aren't fat lumps). Then he threw the controller on me and stormed off. Then he returned, saying that if I don't stop being a "fascist" and change my attitude, he will send me out of the house. If he does that, I won't have my only reason of living, anymore; our dog.

I've decided to try to go mute in order to not speak with him. I prayed as hard as I could that he would die, but so far, none of those prayers have been listened to. Just further proof that no good god exists. I'll talk as little as possible with my mom, too, as he feels provoked when I ta

Not him but about war... "Lots of terrible, nightmarish stuff" is already my life. It could get worse with war but not by much and every day I care less.

I feel you anon. My mom is similar to your father, plus she drinks. She doesn't throw stuff at me but she threw a brick into my window once. For me the only thing that works is not talking to her at all and avoid her as much as I can.

>>if I don't stop being a "fascist" and change my attitude, he will send me out of the house

Can he actually do that? I mean what's the law in your country about this and who owns the house, your mom or him? Is your apartment stable / paid for on the long term? If yes, then maybe you should just move and visit your mom and your dog when he is not at home. And before anything else certainly go and see a doctor.

>Well.... war is never nice, though.
Sure, but getting a influenza injection isn't either, but it's best to get it done. And war will really test my limits, I want to know just what I can acheive when pushed.
Nobody really deserves to die, though I sure would like certain groups exterminated, but that doesn't mean they deserve it, it's just what personally think is best and I wouldn't grieve over their removal.

>I'm not sure if he understands how much damage he is doing to me, mentally... and his behaviour is just making me get even more extreme
Yeah, sounds like mine. I've concluded he must be a sort of psycopath, since clearly he is unable to process other's emotions.
Best advice I can give is to just stop talking to him.

He's not going to change until either a different narrative shows up on the television screen, everyone around him changes, or he's subjected to soviet style torture and brainwashing.

As for cancer treatment I recommend you read:

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.

In elementary school I brought my bayblades with me and showed them off. Turns out my friends have some too and we start battling each other every break. Soon the younger kids start swarming and watching us. Told them I could sell my bayblades if they wanted. Made like 50 bucks. I should add that bayblades where already out of fashion at this point in time

How many of you have been into anime 20+ years? Also what year did you start watching anime? Then what year did you find what anime actually was?

I've been into anime since 1995 but I didn't know what anime was until 1997.

I’m also 30, and I’ve noticed in public life that a lot more people watch it than let on. For instance, walking by a pharmacist talking to a patient the other day I heard one telling the other how they like older anime like Ranma. Both of them were, I would say, in thier mid 30s to late 30s.

I think it’s mostly that once you become older and are finished with school and college, your life takes a very narrow path that you, yourself, stear. You’re also no longer branded into social groups as much beause everyone else is just focused on their own path. When you’re in your early twenties and teens you are still focused on groups, like who is an “anime fan” or “jock” or whatever.

Beyond that age range we are all just people winging it, and what we like doesn’t define us as much as how much money we make or what we do for a living.
>> No. 31552 [Edit]

Yeah, I've also noticed not a lot of people who I used to hang out with still watch anime. My roommate is 25 and still watches it. There's also this woman who's 31 that I know who still watches anime and is trying to raise her kids to like it as well although that doesn't seem to be working out. But yeah I am noticing that there's a huge decline once people start hitting a certain age.

>Beyond that age range we are all just people winging it, and what we like doesn’t define us as much as how much money we make or what we do for a living.
Unfortunately this. People only care about you based on what you do and how much money you make. If you're not working people don't want to be seen with you thus you become isolated to no ends. That's what happens to most NEETs. I'm trying to figure out a way out of long-term NEETdom myself and anytime I run into people I went to school with they always try to ask me what I do and intrusive questions like that. I finally wised up and started lying to them. But even then that doesn't seem to matter much. Most of them just sit around drinking themselves to death while they're in their second or third marriage right now with three to four kids. I'm literally the only one left out of my entire class that hasn't had any kids or been married. Also even my younger brother tries to pretend that he doesn't remember watching anime with me growing up because it's seen as "uncool" to his peers. He's in the military and completely changed his persona and looks like he wants to kill himself on a daily basis. Then again that's most people I see anymore. They work and have a family but deep down you really pay attention these people are extremely miserable. I've had an extreme depression over the years about being a NEET and not having but a very small handful of friends. But I've started to look at it like this, I don't have any drama, I choose to actually be my true

I think I found out Anime was a distinct separate medium around 1998 or 1999. Before that I remembered it as just called "eastern cartoons" locally. Same thing with Tokusatsu (Jiban, Masked Rider and co.) which was usually referred to as "Japanese shows".

Since the old request thread has been gone for quite some time now, would it alright to make a new one? I've been trying to re-find the picture in which a guy tells a story beginning with a high school orchestra performance. He talks about how he imagined his waifu, Kagami Hiiragi, being in the audience and how they talk and spend time with each other after returning home. It has a picture of Kagami gently smiling in it, but I otherwise remember it only consisting of small black text on a white background.

I'd like to start another dream thread, if that's all right. I'll go first.
You know how when you're a fan of something like anime or scifi or similar things in your teenage years parents will try to buy stuff for you? My dad and stepmom bought anime\manga related shit at yard sales a lot. Sometimes it was good, sometimes it was off the mark.
Well, in my dream I'm still in high school. I'm sitting there playing Xbox when my dad & stepmom walk in and yell that they got me something at a yard sale. I'm think to myself, "well, probably shit, but I might as well see," and go to check it out.
I walk into the kitchen and on the table is a box full of stuff from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
I get more excited and go to see what it is. There's every episode in raws and fansubs on
VHS, some uniforms, figurines, and even Shinjis' fucking tape recorder with the tape he listens to inside it! All the merchandise seems to be older and seems like it was directly imported from Japan. I ask where they found it.
It cuts to a yard sale with a slightly sad fiftyish woman in her front yard. She talked about how her son loved this show and whatnot, and seemed very sad. She sold it all for about 10-20 dollars.
I take all the stuff out and find a suicide note. Her son had gotten into anime in the
eighties while in high school and was completely inept and friendless. He grew obsessed with
Evangelion and felt a strong kinship with Shinji because he was such a fuck up. He grew older
and couldn't find anyone to share his interests with, became more and more of a recluse, and
killed himself in the late nineties, which I recall being a shame since the internet as of
96, when he killed himself, could have given him a place to talk to others and feel less alone. I realized he was "an otaku of another generation." I hung up his note and saluted it. I then went to watch his tapes and realized that he had dubbed it himself in case he ever met anyone who wanted to share his joy. I inherited his legacy. His mother had cleaned house and ended up giving me a record of a hikkikomori life.

>> No. 31387 [Edit]

Doubt it, but only since I hardly use mine to the extent most people do. If I had to analize it in some way it'd possibly have something to do with getting burned by doing a favor (ie, not taking the phone for myself and flipping it) but I wouldn't know.

This past evening I had three dreams all involving people being killed or dying otherwise.

First, I was in an office situation. There were some visitors. Somewhere along the lines one of those visitors was killed by another person there in at main entry door and left there. Nobody seemed to care, and everyone else went on working as usual. Later, they started acting strangely towards me, the thing I remember most was being asked a handful of times "don't you normally wear a scarf?" or similarly worded. The other person killed wore one. Seemed as if everyone else was onto me, as if I were next.

Second, I was in a retail store, which I believe sold furniture. At some point someone started shooting and attacking people. Everyone ran from the building. Last thing I remember was getting in the back seat of a minivan and the driver, who seemed to be younger or around high school age, starting the car.

The third I don't remember but that is probably a good thing.

I had one I could actually remember last night for the first time in ages. In it, massive godzilla sized bizarre looking aliens invaded earth. Some of them looked like huge pokemon.
For some reason their presence caused humans to freeze in place, unable to move but still able to see and hear everything around them. These monsters would snatch up and eat people frozen out on the streets. For some odd reason seeing motion of any kind could cancel out the effects, so cities around the world eventually built large yellow windmill like devices and placed them everywhere. Not sure of anything past that.

I was walking down to the park and for some reason explaining why stealing from people is a pretty . While talking we passed by a trailer and went to a park, but then we pretty much walked to an exit out of the park somewhat 20 feet away that was next to a house. The house seemed broken into and outside of it laid a ton of crosses and crucifixes. It was a truly bizarre scene, like one out of a shitty demonic possession movie, then for some reason I decided to look through the sliding window door things to see what exactly had happened and everything inside was turned over and in a mess. I then noticed a body on a couch, shaking, unable to do anything but stay there while facing the window. Their eyes were pure black and they had seemed to be stereotypically demonically possessed.

As I had looked for a couple of seconds, I realised that it'd had been better if I left, especially since I had my nephew with me and although he's not really a kid, I don't think that I'd be okay with any of the stupid demon shit affecting him or him getting hurt in any way. So I just told him that we had to leave, although I guess that it was pretty shocking to him because he looked at it a couple seconds longer before coming along with me.

As soon as we made it onto the street, I said something I don't quite remember to lighten the mood a bit since I know that panicking is one of the worst things you can do for any situation. I then woke up and went to the bathroom.

There was more in the beginning, but I cannot remember that part, however the whole demon possessing thing came out of nowhere. It was very strange and interesting to dream of such a thing.

Weeaboo thread for people who like Jap stuff outside of 2nd media.
Here is my testimony: About a year ago I rewatched Aah harimanada. I don't rematch much but a few special favorites and this one I hadn't seen in a decade so it was kinda still fresh the 2nd time around. Anyway I marathoner the fuck out of it because it was that good and I then segway'd into watching 3D IRL sumo and getting way into the sport. Now I'm an obsessed sumo fan and can't wait for the next basho and wonder if Hakuho is going to be back and if he'll be healthy enough to take back Y1E from Kakuryu and how long its going to be before Abi starts winning tournaments, etc.
Its something to pass the time anyway.

Are there any Japanese YouTube channels you like? Or maybe any YouTube channels you like at all? I like しう, メッタ ME!ME!ME!TTATON!!, and AHATO. MokoDojo is another one that I like though it may not be Japanese but has had some Japanese content on the channel.
Hakase Reimu is very charming to me with the fun videos covered over certain games and the interaction with Hakase Reimu and her fans as well and feels almost like Bill Nye in a certain way. I like the Pokémon remixes on メッタ ME!ME!ME!TTATON!!'s channel and I very much enjoy the game play videos of AHATO, especially their Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon 2 videos. I also happen to find the many unboxing videos of MokoDojo very relaxing, they help me to focus on things and calm me down. I will include links to each of their channels.

Maybe we can recommend YouTube channels we like to other users in this thread as well. In consideration of users with older computers I ask that you don't post any videos and instead post links, perhaps with an image as well to give users an idea of what they might see on the channel posted without their computer slowing down.
Please keep the rule in mind restricting 3D imagery but don't let it restrict you from recommending quality channels! If an image for the channel is not possible due to containing 3D, then please provide a written description of the type of content on the channel you are recommending. We can have more than just Japanese channels as well for the sake of variety and introducing people here to new things.

Without a doubt, this is one of my absolute favorite youtube channels. I adore the stories he tells and the way he tells them, most of them are very wholesome and relaxing so I like to watch them while I eat food. I also like his depictions of the characters far far more than the canon characters. His uploads are very slow but they are all very enjoyable.

Since mid 2016, other than work, most of my free time has been taken up with watching Youtube, and visiting family about once a month. All the sites and communities I've come to love and enjoy over the last few years since late 2014 will always hold a special place in my heart. Never forgotten, never will.
