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.

Thank you so much. I really enjoy reading the thoughts and experiences others have concerning their beloved, and this one left a strong impression on me.

That's very heartwarming. I hope that anon is still as happy with her.

Looks like nobody took up the mantle. I have no idea if the missing fansubbed content is due to that, or intentionally left out. For anyone interested, go ask them in chat. They've got an API you can use.

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.

>The security guard said something along the lines of "Best if you just leave that where it is."
Do you think that stems from the anxiety we feel regarding our phones as extensions of ourselves?
>> 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.

Money, and lots of it.

Run her over with a steam roller I guess?
Alternatively, get a cardboard cut out?

Isn't this pretty much all women these days?

>tuxedo
Buy one and ask her to wear it. Most 3DPD will be willing to accommodate whatever you're into to a degree and that wouldn't be too weird.

>gf in irl?
Drop all standards and 'maybe' you can get one.

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.

Is there anyone here left from the start? I remember when Tohno created this imageboard, birthed from the Rizon.net irc. To remember those days, the responsibility of the present, and ambiguity of the future fills me with sorrow.

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.

I don't like to look at my Rosalina amiibos or have them next to my computer much because I can actually feel hatred coming from them.

Never got anything from regular objects. Only those based on figures/creatures.
I've got a fair amount of figs and always kept the toy story concept in the back of my mind.
It can be kinda fun to imagine what they might get up to when I'm not home. I like to think they're content in how I take care of them and supply them with plenty of friends. Never got any vibes from them however, good or bad.

lets say /tc/ had some sort of battle royale where everyone here fought each other to the death in an argument over anime.
who do you think would win? i know i would kill at least few motherfuckers if it came to that, but then once it was safe and i was in the clear i'd lay down, play dead & wait to finish off the last guy standing once he thought he'd won and let his guard down.

Do you mean a westerner (America, Europe, Russia, etc.) or Japanese? If the former, why would anyone call him and otaku? If the latter, then it's more likely they'd call them a gamer why "otaku" would be reserved as more of an insult.

I was going by the Japanese definition of the word, like how they use lolicon for pedophile. Probably should have clarified.
>> No. 31337 [Edit]
I know a Chinese one. When it comes to their taste in weeb stuff it seems about the same as most other people from around the world. Their location grants them easier travel to japan and their cultures are similar in a lot of ways.
I've known some hispanic ones too. They almost always tend to have a deep love for saint seiya for some reason.
>> No. 31341 [Edit]
Not in person. I barely know any otaku people in person and don't really partake with them.

As for in anonymous boards, I'm a beaner myself and I don't think it ever specially stood out to anyone here over all these years, other than in my sometimes convulted wording. Also, I was often mistaken for a nord in other chans, so I don't think there's any solid criteria to pinpoint cultural backgrounds within the usual otaku board talk.

>>31337
Saint Seiya was huge on TV here when I was a kid (early 90's). I guess it's mostly nostalgia, but I could be wrong. I do treasure it too, however.
