I'm searching for an alternative place to post and read things about anime/manga/games/misc. What I like the most about tc is its overall mellow userbase, or atmosphere. It can be any type of portal, doesn't have to be image board only.

What? There's nothing wrong with giving recommendations and it should be clear that one has to lurk before posting so that he can get familiar with the culture and not be the obvious, "bad kind of crossie".

To hell with it, i'm tired and today i'm feeling extremely generous. But first, an history lesson.

Things started gaining popularity mainly in comikes, then came 2ch and so futaba (2chan) as a backup only.
Around this time, our young hero moot then saw things he shouldn't in his teens 15yo on futaba and decided to grab the free code and edit it a bit, so 4chan was born as mainly an experimental project, like some of you are seeing here.
But he was smart, spreading word on animecons and gaining popularity fast amongst otaku communities, eventually things spiralled out of control and normalfags railed him from behind, "forcing" him to bail out.

Midway through here, hiroyuki, now the owner of yotsuba (4chan) was the owner of 2ch and things there already worked by dirty money, selling data from people dumb enough to buy custom tripcodes and even nanashis. Data farm.
Then he was ousted and so things got serious, many alternatives of 2ch were created like open2ch.net, 2ch.sc and many others, offering "security" by protecting users privacy.

However, there was no turning back, and even with the rise in popularity from smartphone apps centered on it, the community split too far apart to different places, something like we saw here in the west with numerous imageboards being created as alternatives for 4chan around the same time.

The popularity now is on sites we call まとめ or 速報, which are a collection of best threads or news amongst other things. Something like newsnow.net, that i can think of in the west. These sites are eating the chan population and recently it was announced a steep decline in 2ch activity, which was mainly attributed to sites like these. There are many of those focused on different topics but lots of them are affiliated in some way, so they list the same exact things, this also includes news from sites like niconico, if you know some basic to medium japanese level then go ahead. I don't even care if normalfags read about this or decided to adventure there, you know, there's a limit these people can go and they'll reach it soon enough. But if you're curious, you can go very far.

I think the main issue is the guy taking this stuff out into public with them and embarrassing the family. Imagine having a family member that enjoyed rubbing one off in public every time you took them out. you might find them embarrassing disgusting and not want to be seen with them right?

Too bad i won't be able to afford Gateboxes or be alive until then, still, it's closer than ever.
Sexbots may become a thing in the future but i'd like to see these Gateboxes succeed instead.
This is the true otaku love, right here.

Sometimes auto makers cut corners to save a few bucks here and there. It's not hard to find poorly designed stuff on any car. There's even a lot of planned obsolescence built into cars with proprietary parts that can only be replaced by a dealer for insane prices.
I went to a dealer a few days ago with my newly purchased car. a replacement visor alone was said to be $220, for something that's $10 worth of plastic with a mirror and a small light in it. it's a common issue with cars like mine and I decided to repair the one I already had. Thing uses a horribly designed system with no leverage and places tons of stress on a small point but shouldn't have to, it's almost like they want the thing to break over time.
Then there was the $500 price tag they put on a part of the dashboard which cracked and split open just on it's own over time.
auto manufactures don't want cars that last forever, they want repeat customers. nippon is no exception.

>Is it really true that people who have aneki/imouto fetishes don't have an aneki/imouto?
Those who claim that there's an connection, most likely do that because for them 2D is just another way of satisfying their 3D fetishes (which is a legit way of looking at 2D, I guess). I have a mother and a sister and I fap to incest doujins but like you I wouldn't do any of them because they are not attractive to me neither physically nor personality-wise (I wouldn't really care about the fact that we're related honestly, if they were attractive to me [which probably only would be possible if they were ideal beings like drawings]).
It's the same with loli which I also fap to and probably like the most, only here there's a much more emotional discussion because a lot of people strongly believe that anyone fapping to them has to be a pedophile which I think is unfortunate. (Above all because for me there is an obvious difference in looks, behaviour, hygiene etc. which I really don't understand how anyone could miss. Liking a cute loli doesn't mean that one feels attracted to the brat next door)
It'd be great if those specific people could understand that not everyone believes that fictional stuff has to be strongly connected with the real world. Not everyone fapping to sadistic monster girls would want to meet one and get themselves killed in real life.
It'd be great if people accepted that there are other people who feel attracted to 2D not as representations of 3D stuff but because of their own aesthetics and characteristics.

Anyways I'm rambling, I should stop.

Should Dokoro-chan be considered a yandere?

She's more genki than what many typically associate with yanderes, and she wasn't 'that' obsessive with her affection from what I can recall. That said, People tend to equate violence with yandere types and in hearing the op again she repeatedly states that violently murdering the mc is how she expresses her love.

>favourite word
Cuddle (2nd place: Sleepy)
>least favourite word
Pick any word SJWs tend to use (typing any of them would be painful)
>what turns you on
Physical: Hugging, holding hands, showering/bathing. Other: Politeness, servitude (so I definitely do love maids), cuteness, purity, timelessness (being detached from most modern trends)
>what turns you off
Anything graphic, extreme or dirty, loudness in general, brunt/aggressive behaviour
>sound or noise you love
Sounds from the beach, rain (nature sounds in general), music boxes
>sound or noise you hate
Anything loud really (that isn't from my headphones when I set it to high volume on purpose), since my hearing's very sensitive... though if it's a natural sound such as thunder, I don't mind too much
>favourite curse word
I use "shit" the most, but my favorite is "doofus" though it's not much of a curse

I guess it's nice, probably better than eleventh century Europe, but I'm sad that the virtual reality age will only come late in my life, that is, if I even live that long to see it come to full throttle.

>but I'm sad that the virtual reality age will only come late in my life
That can also be a good thing. The magic will be lost with virtual reality because it will be another reality.
The thing with 2D, at least in my eyes, is that there is always this basic difference of dimension that assures a pretty big distance in the end. This will be lost with VR, the 2D qts as we know them will get uncomfortably real. That fictional world will get too close, borders will fade, there will be constant influence between the worlds, constant influx from our reality into the virtual reality, shaping it, maybe deforming the beauty that simple drawings are able to sustain today.
>> No. 28277 [Edit]
>>28276
VR doesn't have to mean photorealistic. It's just another way of experiencing 3d content.

I feel that the idealism of animation and drawings doesn't have to be lost just because it's seen through VR goggles. If presented properly, the immersiveness of VR can complement the perfect world of animations.
Of course, it remains to be seen exactly what 'properly' is. I hope for the best.

>I feel that the idealism of animation and drawings doesn't have to be lost just because it's seen through VR goggles
I agree. I've tested VR using phone based headsets and found that if it just covers your entire field of view it's good enough. A sense of depth is nice and does indeed add to the experience but is not completely necessary.
Besides that I've discovered there are already a few applications that will simulate an empty movie theater with your content on the screen. I tried watching an ep of yuruyuri like that, it was neat but gave me a bit of a headache half way in.

So anime studios have been adapting manga for ages, it must be successful or something,
and now it seems the West has caught on, with all these comic book film adaptations.

I can't help but feel the Japanese are just ahead of the Americans.

Also, how are comic book films similar to animated adaptions of manga? And Western comic books have been adapted into cartoons & live-action tv series since the 1940s.

Longer than that. There was a series of Krazy Kat cartoons around WWI.
>> No. 28218 [Edit]
>>28217
As said before, the earliest live action adaptations of comic strips date to 1898(!); Krazy Kat was adapted as an animation around World War I, with 1916 being the first. Since comic books came after newspaper strips their adaptations into film came later as well, with still popular protagonists like Batman and notably Superman, since unlike Batman this was an actual comic adaptation and not a film utilizing a character from a comic, debuting in the early 1940s.
