From the J-List newsletter: "One of the more refreshing aspects of Japan is the laissez faire attitude companies take to certain aspects of Japanese copyright, specifically "doujin" or fan-produced works such as ecchi doujinshi comics that explore improbable relationships between characters, or other kinds of non-official creative works like music remixes and soundtracks and, er, anime onaholes. In the decades since the first Comiket in 1975, an odd tradition of allowing free use of copyrighted works has grown up, due to the fact that virtually every industry artist got his or her start making doujinshi, and the reality that every modern anime needs a healthy "ecosystem" of doujin artists in order to make a mark with fandom. When studios went to remake the venerable 1974 Space Battleship Yamato franchise, they understood the need to engage fans from several angles, including adding in fan-service and encouraging creators to make fanart using the characters. But now an animation studio is trying to stop these creative works: the owners of Love Live are asking doujin circles and shops to completely stop distributing products featuring their characters, citing Japanese copyright rules. Since Bandai also tried (and failed) to use Japanese copyright to ban Pokemon doujin works back in the day, I'm sure this new development won't affect things much, but it is kind of a disappointment."

I'm glad I never watched Love Live, nor bought any merchandise. Never will, now, either, and will inform others of why. I'll definitely never watch this anime, nor read its manga, ever.... considering how much money I spend on merchandise, they might regret it if this is a frequent opinion of people. Just, go away. Just, please go bankrupt, you fuckers... =_=

What makes you say that?
>> No. 30219 [Edit]
>there is fan fiction for sale of every single popular anything ever
It is referring to the legal sale of copyrighted intellectual property at events such as natsucomi. There is no Western equivilent; you cannot legally profit from fan-fiction of intellectual property for which you have not obtained the rights to, and therefore there is no market event for sales of such items.

I wonder if this is something the people working on the show support or not. It seems like the kind of decision that would come from higher-ups in the corporate ladder who are concerned about the "image" of their franchise. And why Love Live in particular? They own Idolmaster too but they aren't they trying to crack down on doujin works there?
>> No. 30248 [Edit]
You cant legally create fan-fiction. profit or not. Japan or west. But companies allow it, mostly

It changes the whole vibe you get from her. Her new one is so plain, it doesn't go well with her personality.

Whats the oldest thing you remember from 4chan? (assuming most of us originally browsed that site) hopefully we can talk about 4chan without the thread going bad

For me I think it was either over 9000 spam or a hoax to put nuclear dirty bombs in football stadiums by some guy named Jake Brahm which led to the saying 'you don't mess with football'.

Man those were simpler times. Things were fresh, new and funny. Funnily enough, there were few 2D purists back then and most otaku were interested in 3D.

I didn't go on 4chan until pretty late in the sites existence, but I think it was kind of a strange case where 4chan didn't really impact my life because I never had "a life" at any point in my childhood or late teens. I've been sitting inside alone since day one, I can't ever leave imageboards because I don't know anything else.

I still like /out/ and /toy/. /ck/ is pretty funny sometimes but makes me too hungry to browse.

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.
>> No. 30088 [Edit]
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.
>> No. 30090 [Edit]
>>30088
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.

I don't get it guys. Shouldn't it be a well established fact by now that a large portion of anime fans love DFC? So why is everyone always putting down characters with flat chest in anime, manga, and games? Sure cow tits might be considered ideal in the real world, but when has that ever stopped anime from pandering to what it's fans want, not what's realistic?

I got no problem with women who have cow tits being present in anime, variety is a good thing after all. I just wish flat chested girls weren't always being made fun of, or made to feel insecure and inferior to those other women. They almost always treat it like a problem that needs to be fixed, often by chugging lots of milk. It's rare to see anyone just point out in an anime that lots of guys actually prefer DFC.

Just watched Queens Blade, and I noticed the exact same dynamic with Aldra

As a loli, she is an army-crushing, nation-uniting badass, but when she returns to her normal physical age, she becomes more reserved and less ambitious

Apparently, you're supposed to listen to music in 44.1hz.
Computers are default to 48hz (standard for film and such) and without some research there's no obvious indication that this is how it's supposed to be.
With how much people listen to music, I feel I should have come across this knowledge sooner as it should be more common parlance. It's not hard at all to change either.

I noticed it heaps. In fact, in the beginning, I wasn't sure what I was hearing was good or not because it was so different to what I was used to.
It's less dense, in 44.1, in that the sound is more spread out so you can hear more of each instrument.
>> No. 29946 [Edit]
>>29945
And I don't mean spread out as in pulling it thin but spread out as in to lay perfectly flat as before it was squished.

I think it may be more pronounced at higher volumes. I tested it first on speakers which I turn to a moderate-loud volume.
>> No. 29954 [Edit]
>>29945
I think I noticed a slight increase in clarity for songs with a very high pitch, but I wasn't 100% certain if it was legitimate or only seemed that way because I was listening for it.

Then again, it could boil down to a difference in our sound systems. I'm running some fairly old speakers.
>> No. 29998 [Edit]
>>29954
My sound system on computer is basic stuff as well.
I also don't hear too much of a difference on my computer and, actually, the first time I tried it and heard the amazing difference was when I changed it on my PS3.
My computer is stock from an office so the sound card is pretty trash, I learnt recently, but the PS3 actually has a very good sound card and so that's why I noticed such an improvement on that.

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/.
