I don't think we had a movie thread yet so I wanted to ask, does /tc/ watch movies? What was the last one you saw? Have any good recommendations or favorite genres? Do you like american, european or asian cinema?

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.

think it could work? because a day later i dreamed about being invited to a party in an abandoned mall in a nuked part of town (recurring theme), turns out that the party was organized by the fake 2D and her cult, the party was supposedly "for peace" but it was a plan to trick me into joining the cult or the guests would die along with some acquaintances they held hostage (maybe they considered me a useful tool), i smugly refused and they got berserk angry and began attacking me, i ran down the stairs and knocked down a bag that was hanging by a rope full of replica medieval weapons and armor, i quickly picked up a sword and began slashing, i chopped like 5 cultist in half in 2 or 3 swings, unfortunately they grabbed some of the weapons as well and began chasing me around the mall while i clumsily tried to put on armor, i don't remember much after that but i vaguely remember a toy/clown dimension bleeding into our reality and everything being consumed in the white void again.

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!

Any form of group project. I can't imagine a system more carefully designed precisely to target those who abhor any form of social interaction. And as my luck has it, I'm always left with a group that does jack shit while professors tell you to suck it up and work it out yourselves.

It's hard to believe there are functioning people who don't respond to emails, can never manage to meet on time, etc., yet still managed to get into uni. And then you have the wildcards, people whose behavior leaves you stunned. This time I'm lopped in with an EE PhD from China who brazenly proclaims himself to be a member of the Chinese Communist Party and couldn't be a better archetype of a student spy.

This is the teeth-kicker. I don't understand people who go to school but act indifferent and aren't motivated--especially if you're paying for it. The best part is when one group member does close-to-nothing, and you tell the professor that she doesn't deserve credit.

I hate the consumerist aspect of Christmas, but the idea of a day to celebrate charity, kindness, and goodwill is appealing to me. Likewise, I like the concept of Thanksgiving being a day to express gratitude and reflect on the things we are thankful for, but people just eat a huge turkey dinner and go buy half-priced garbage the very next day. In general, I think it is very regrettable that normalfags typically prefer celebrating days like these by purchasing cheap garbage, eating excessively extravagant meals, or selfishly enjoying the receipt of things from others.

After seeing the immense popularity of the what bugs you thread, I decided that I would make a thread for people to post all the awesome things (big or little) in life that simply make you happy. I understand Tohno-Chan has a lot of gripes and resentments, but we cant all be negative all the time. After all, what is negativity if we have nothing to compare it too?

Sure. About two thirds of us are overweight, across all of Europe. What I meant was not that Italians are unusually fat, just that they're also as fat as us.

The differences between 'national diets' aren't that big anymore. We all stuff our gobs with the same shit. Same 'imported' internationally popular dishes, fast food, sweets, snacks, soda, beer. Local cuisine got overtaken by the global favourites.
But I think even before globalization food in most regions was based mainly on cereal and starchy vegetables. That's what agriculture was always focused on, probably everywhere. But today barely anyone gets enough daily activity to eat all of that high energy food and not get fat.

Could be the only thing Europe is united in is obesity. We grow fat together, that should be our motto.

I don't know how we compare to the USA.

>>33091
Carry on then. Personally I can't tell the difference.

From games, comics, and cartoons, since the late 90s, westerns from America to Europe(especially France for some reason) have attempted to create "anime-like" media. You remember some of these: rwby, totally spies, avatar, teen titans, code lyoko, to name a few. Most of these are made to capitalize on a dying trend, but that's besides the point. These try to copy something more than the artstyle(which is usually a failure). There's some kind of character to otaku media that they're trying to replicate.

Aside from anime largly representing adult-oreiented animation that isn't primarily comedic, there's something else to it, some dynamic. Most people write these "knockoffs" off as shit and that's it, but I want to know, if I were to try to make something with that unique "spirit" to it, wouldn't it just come out the same? Could a westerner capture whatever that thing is so it feels the same?

There's a couple western porn artists which do a really good job, but that's as close as I can think of

Sorry for the misinterpretation of your statement. I don't have too much experience with other medias, but yes, compared to American cartoons, even aimed at adults, anime is a much more serious medium.

And yeah, Goepples-chan wasn't the best example to put in things relating to otaku culture, however, the comedic scenes are actually reminiscent of those in visual novels and the team that worked on it is actually Japanese. I appreciated the humor and the perspective of it, despite the fact that it went with the common [insert]-tan theme and was pandered to westerners.

Also goes to show that there are so few good EOL VN's, I had to bring that one up.

>there are so few good EOL VN's
"Games" like Heavy Rain, Telltale stuff and even that Life is Strange shit basically are EOL VNs, they just aren't packaged as such. The gimmick of these is basically "hey, it's an electronic, slightly interactive medium of story telling. That's never been done before! Games are art now, see?". Except visual novels were doing it 20+ years before.

I feel like those take after movies, not novels. You don't read much in them, or at all. While it is similar in the sense that the focus is entirely on storytelling, the method is too different for me to see them as comparable.
>> No. 33664 [Edit]
>>33663
There's a few "fully-animated" VNs.

I feel like what they were wrongly taking credit for something broader than movie based games. They didn't so much as acknowledge the existence of visual novels, which I guess is a good thing.

It has more to do with their mere presence than [potential] conversation.

A fear of other human beings is probably nigh-impossible to imagine if you don't have it, but that also applies to virtually every phobia, along with certain elements of other neurological disorders (for example, the fact that many people on the autism spectrum are completely unable to perceive sarcasm, irony, and metaphors).

The tiger only has three methods of killing men, a crouch, a leap, and a blow with its tail. If these three fail the tiger at once loses all courage and spirit. In such cases it always turns around, and gives a loud roar.
