>Good. Having them around leads to tone policing and ad hominems of the type you're posting now.

True that.

My answers:
- I've moved out of my parents house, but I'm in uni housing on their dime. I still live with them during breaks.
- I don't know how "friends" are defined, but it's possible 10 or more people might come who are not family.
- Went to two concerts. One was country/indie and a sit-down affair. The other was EDM but I got there late and ended up sitting in the back row alone.
- Tried weed once. I suspect the guy who gave it to me did it thinking I'd do something funny. I just ended up getting paranoid and clamming up.
- Went to at least one house party (memory fails me). Got drunk, depressed, and left halfway through.

Fun stuff.

But you're still alone for birthdays and New Year?
>> No. 29405 [Edit]
I really don't see the point in this, especially when it's so normal in itself.
10+ friends? How about one?
Get compliments regularly? Who are you interacting with to receive them?
Go out on most weekends? How about going out at all?

I'm working with the assumption that team sports and parties organized by my mom when I was prepubescent don't count, at which point I get 0.

What are your thoughts on the common portrayal in Japanese media of life essentially being limited to one's time in school?

It's just an easy and barely noticeable way cutting corners for practicality sake, anime/manga is full of them. It doesn't really mean they're lazy, it just means they're using their time and resources more efficiently and in creative ways. It's like animating only a characters mount when they talk rather than their whole face, panning over still frames for the illusion of animation, having background characters who are poorly drawn and don't move, putting the most care into a characters head area rather than the rest of their body which is where most people focus on then putting all the detail in the eyes for the same reason, and of course this also includes using school uniforms so you don't have to design and draw dozens of different outfits instead of variations of the same uniform.

Very realistic. After school ended, I was NEET for a year, , then my life just became centered around working. I did not do much in school, had no friends and hated school in general, but I could always count on toughing the day through then going home to browse the internet and watch anime and shit, especially when summer come.

When I was 17/18 I lost the spark of video games and anime. all star battle was released, JOJO was being animated, watamote got an anime, PS4 was out. None of it interested me. My life ended sometime around this time.

I was without internet for a good chunk of that time, so I hypothesize that I became "unaddicted" to anime and video games, and was reduced to a dead soulless husk with nothing to look forward to in this world.

My oh my, the lull of video games and anime was so sweet. Being absorbed in anime and videogames is like being on drugs. And when it's over I snap out of it and I'm crying on the bathroom floor.

when I was in middle school and early highschool, I wanted to do drugs, wanted to fuck women (or at least prostitutes) trannies, twinks, whatever. Wanted to watch all the anime in the world, play every video game, spend all my days browsing the infinite internet, spend hours combing gelbooru and paheal. Wanted to learn japanese, wanted to learn to draw manga and hentai, wanted to master guitar shredding. wanted to start a metal band, never wanted to work. wanted a full gaming PC set up, wanted a dakimakura, posters, onaholes, wanted an outcast loser tomoko gf to love, I wanted everything life had to offer.

It all just fizzled away in a moment somehow, don't know how, but now I'm here and I don't want much of nothin. It's all gone now. Maybe those were juvenile desires, maybe I got raped or something. Who knows? I did have a bad trip on shrooms at the end of this time. Don't recall it having much of an effect on me but the following months I was smacked with a series of existential crisis' and I guess I realized that none of this matters. So sad, I suppose.

Wouldn't a anime about people in their 20s would feature even less variety clothes and less variation in scenes since everyone would be wearing office suits in cubicles all day.

They sort of make fun of the main character for wearing a suit to the job, and she's pretty much the only character who wears the same thing each ep.
Most jobs 'usually' don't have strict dress codes or uniforms unless it's an entry level/minimum wage kind of job. That's why something like Working! works for this but servant x service doesn't.

Assuming you're asking about the "nature vs nurture" argument, the general consensus right now in humans seems to be that roughly 70% of your personality and character is determined by your nature and genetics, and the remaining 30% is determined by your environment and external stimuli.

How do I stop fapping so much?
I spend too much time sitting in front of the monitor and then it just happens
I don't think this is healthy, I need to stop
>> No. 29222 [Edit]
By exercising the willpower not to touch your penis. Get up and make a cup of tea when the urge arises and make sure to drink it standing in the kitchen instead of bringing it back to your computer desk. You can read a book in the meantime, too. Or maybe go for a walk. The main thing is that you stand up and get away from your computer for a bit.
>> No. 29223 [Edit]
It shouldn't be unhealthy, as long as it doesn't hurt.
>> No. 29224 [Edit]
The only thing bad that will happen from constant masturbation is you will become very unsensitized. If you already are then the solution is to simply masturbate less(as little as you can) and switch to onaholes only. A real vagina works too.

>How do I stop fapping so much?

quantify yourself
i bet you're below average on this site
anyway masturbation is good for you. does it feel good? yes, so do it as often as possible.
if you answered no then you're doing it wrong.

How do I become an Otaku? I've liked anime and manga forever but "otaku" stuff has eluded me forever. I've been aware of these things but I've always associated them with a layer of the internet where everyone is aware of what's going on except for me.

I have no idea where to go to learn about otaku stuff except imageboards, because everything is always in japanese. Anime is easy and I've always watched it, but I've never pierced (successfully) past that layer where I could just go and download an anime after reading about it on wikipedia or MAL.

"Franchises" in particular, things that aren't actually based off an anime (the other way around often) are very difficult for me to "get". Stuff like Touhou or [email protected] and stuff like that.

Every time I see someone post something "otaku" that isn't anime and instantly recognizable I feel like I'm missing out on something everyone else "gets".

So where do I go? Niconico or something? Everytime I see a post about J-Pop or something like that everyone seems to know what every group is and every member's name etc. If I try getting into something like that often enough I'm just presented with a PV with the artist's name and song title in block letters and everything else in nip scribble.

It's a world of figurines and body pillows and light novels and stuff, MMD's and MADs and all sorts of music and I feel like, for someone who has been browsing imageboards as long as I have, to be missing out and not being "in".

I don't know about or have ever associated with otaku stuff outside of imageboards but everytime I see an otaku person or someone posts a picture of a touhou or something I'm left completely lost as to why every otaku seems to know everything there is to know about otaku stuff but I'm left completely lost as to how they learned these things and got into them.

Too late buddy. I'm already a "otaku" in the legitimate sense i.e. social anxiety, never go outside, everything thinks I'm a drug addict/potential shooter, never even held hands with a girl, browse wizardchan etc etc

This is just the icing on the cake, don't get me wrong. I've already learned half the hiragana since I started on Monday, only practicing during my breaks at work, or when I go to take a piss I'll take 5 minutes to practice etc. I work 10 hours a day Monday-Saturday so I'll get a big chunk done on Sunday and be finished sometime next week. After that comes katakana and that shouldn't be hard because a bunch look the same.

This isn't nearly as hard as people make it out to be. Sa is the smiley face with 1 slash, Ki is the smiley face with 2 slashes, Ku is just a greater than sign, Su has a loop-de-loop

Once I can speak glorious nihongo then I'll really be able to swing my dick around these normies

You aren't an "otaku" at all because none of those things make you an otaku. In reality, you're the only normalfag here because of your desperation to prove that you're not like them and your desperation in having something that makes you different.
Of course you browse Retardchan. You know what you are? You're a failed normalfag. You bring up that you've "never held hands with a girl" and such. You don't belong here at all. Fuck off and go back there.

The most important step in being an otaku is learning how to be alone & be yourself.
>> No. 29215 [Edit]
"Otaku" isn't really something you try to become, it's more of a murky swamp that you just sort of gradually sink into if you have the right type of personality. Before you know it you realize that you're in so deep you might as well get comfortable. Anyway I think I roughly understand what you're trying to ask so here is my personal experience:

Around 2003 or so I kind of got hooked watching the anime that Cartoon Network would run at night (Inuyasha, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, etc), and got interested enough in a couple of shows to start collecting them on DVD. When I started college the following year I saw a flier for a school anime club so I started going to that. Most of the people there knew a lot more about anime than I did and had been into it longer so I felt kind of out of place. However I got to be friends with some of the people in the club and I just kind of got sucked further and further into that world. In addition to the club we started going to conventions and the like, and we would frequently hang out and watch each others DVDs. I learned about 4chan from one of those guys too, and that was really the point of no return for me. Before I got into this stuff I was basically just a somewhat awkward and socially beta but still relatively normal male; I now live in a world of plastic figurines and erotic visual novels. My only close friends are the anime club friends I met in college.

Anyway, being otaku is basically like having any other interest that you're very deeply into, like being into a music genre or something. If you want to get into it just start looking into titles that sound interesting to you, learn all you can again, and go from there. One of two things will happen: either you'll find out it was just a phase, or you'll become one of us.

Definitely a solid choice, as long as you avoid creating any temporal paradoxes.

I'd be just as apt to choose simple invisibility too, though.

The ability to manipulate gravity would be great, although it's practically omnipotent because gravity is the main force that runs the universe and manipulating it would give you control over time, space, and even possibly other dimensions.

I've already thrown away so many things of hobbies that I intended to start but ended up simply trying for a week and never again. While I imagine that it would be curious to find these again, I honestly do not want to face those items of my past self. I think it would be a terrifying experience.
