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.

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.

Money, and lots of it.

>2d
Run her over with a steam roller I guess?
Alternatively, get a cardboard cut out?

>pretending-to-be-a-boy-and-not-pulling-it-off
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.

Do you ever feel strange things from inanimate objects?

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.

That's about finding beauty in the suffering of life.
So I don't think it's literal 'mono' as in stuff.

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.

Careful. Just because I'm volunteering to register the event doesn't mean I can't teleport behind everyone's back and nothingpersonel'd them all at the same time. You're on my list now. I'm still a magnanimous champion so I will execute you swiftly and painlessly.

>You could say a guy that is obsessed with western video games but hates everything Japanese... is still an otaku
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.

I made a tram transit map for my area.

I really should stop fetishising infrastructure I'm in the wrong place in the world to do such a thing.

The purpose of a transit map is to convey basic information on an easily replicatable, easily read format, not to give an accurate geographical representation of the area served. It holds all the pertinent information a person would need to use a transit system. It has a simple and easily read format for someone attempting to find their way around a subway system, going by their closest station and finding the closest station to their destination.

By default all maps serve a specific purpose, and every map can, does, and will omit information to that end. Imagine a history textbook about the Vietnam War that went into detail about the botanical information of the jungle, each species of plant by their genus and species name and their reproductive methods.

Any transit system worth their salt will put a detailed map of the street layout of the area within 100-500 meters of the station, but it's useless to put a station map with every street corner and building on it, as the pertinent information is lost to begin with in the rest of the noise. Someone on public transit won't need to know where Interstate 93 is, but they all will need to know the order of stops on a train.

Part of infrastructure is cost, another part is implementation. So imagine the process of production to make geographically correct maps of a transit system to be published in all sorts of forms (pamphlet, website, posters, cards, wall maps, etc). Now imagine the vast amount of wasted space that would be taken up by a map where a line has several stops per mile in high density areas but miles between spots in low density areas (as is the case with my map between two cities with two lower density towns between them). You need to print such a map large enough to not crowd the high density areas, so in short, you would have a map that only works as a large poster of abnormal proportions, or is completely unreadable in any way if you try to print it in a portable format, completely destroying the point of a transit map.

in almost every case its a far less functional use of space than it could be, people copy the old london tube style because it was on popular tshirts and shit. its far easier to copy the positively acceptable that to come up with your own style. most of the text on the graphic you produced is illegible so i can't really use is as a basis for comparison, but there is little doubt in my mind that graphic could be easily produced to represent a subway system with geographical accuracy if you were willing to sacrifice that cool combo of art deco stylized curves and bright colors.
furthermore i thought bostonians were really proud of having kicked the english out way back when, but now they're giving free publicity to the london tube tshirt salesmen? seems like an easily corrected minor mistake on their part.
