Mostly, but there are expectations:
Basically you want to try and avoid the psp-go, psp street, and psp3000 models.

Damn. I had a very similar situation to yours. Here is some history I have with it.

I was booted from my house and lost my computer so I just had my psp as a browser. I also used it to play games too, naturally. I had to go home secretly(thanks bro) and download anime, games and unload pictures I saved. The browser wasn't very good though. I remember trying to browse high post count threads on 4chan and being unable to load further more because of the limited ram. I was using it for hours everyday non stop. Custom firmware is wonderful.

Some time later, my laptop broke in Japan. I had to again resort to my psp for wifi. However it was harder to browse on more modern sites and I was having connection problems alot of the time. I couldn't repair my laptop then and there so I thought, you know maybe I'll buy a vita since the psp served me well through all this time. Unfortunately I regretted it and should have got a smartphone instead. The vita needs CFW.

This psp is the most sentimental thing I own.

Also, to contribute to the thread my mx518 mouse is great. Mine has more than 15 million clicks and it's still going.

Wore one of those for years but eventually bought this one because it has a countdown timer function.

Most of TC is moe-kei and/or Akiba-kei otaku, but are any of us other types of otaku?

I have a big thing for Japanese naval stuff, but my other big love is urban infrastructure, mainly trains, trolleys and subways. Akihabara is like porn to me.

I spend most of my time in Minecraft making urban plans in creative mode, working around the auto generated maps and trying to make elevated lines, subway tunnels, buildings and canals. Right now my favourite map is one I have been working on for two years, inspired by Kanda and Chiyoda in Tokyo as well as Boston.

i think we can all agree that some anime has better art than others and the logical extension of that is that some anime is good and some is bad. blind obedience to the japanese will allow bad anime to flourish along with the good, while being vocal about their failing will allow them to eliminate the bad and eliminating the less desirable elements of anime will lead to an overall improvement that general acceptance will not. the massive cow-cunts the faggots in japan are appending to cute little girls are hideous. does your waifu have an inflamed infection down there or is she wearing pads or maybe some kind of monster dildo or is just just swollen and bruised from all of the cock? it that what you want for cute japanese 2dgirls? i don't. cute little girls have nothing external in that area. boys do, so if you want something like that then you are gay.

in my life anime had only gotten better, its hasn't stagnated or gotten worse yet and i've been involved for a long time. sometime something horrible rears its ugly head, but good anime fans shout it down and in general anime improves over time because lame fads like scrotomes on girls are eliminated.

new anime fans like you should just shut the fuck up. if forced maymays are your number one worry in life you don't belong here anyway so maybe consider the fact you and your kym-obsessed ilk can do a lot to improve tc by lurking instead of posting. the board will improve noticeably if this advice is followed and everyone enjoyment of it, you own included, will increase.

The "joke" is still shit and unfunny. No amount of text you pull out of your ass will change that.

I don't give a shit if you like balls and dicks. Just keep it to yourself, loser.

Are you the same person you were when you were a child, or are you a completely different creature using it's name and pretending to be them?
At this point in time all cells in your body have probably been cycled out, lost over the years and replaced with the intake of new mater. Physically speaking you're not in the same body that you once were. You undoubtedly look a little different too. It doesn't stop there, your personality has most likely changed and become completely different, as well as your interests and tastes. If the 'old you' acted differently, thought differently, looked different, and had memories/experience you don't anymore. Can you truly say you two are the same person?

What are you even trying to say here? I don't think I've heard anyone say that they exist outside of the universe, nor state that their perception of the world was a universal one.
>> No. 28564 [Edit]
Shouldn't this be in /mt/?
>> No. 28565 [Edit]
Calling someone a person is drawing a line where there is none. You are the universe, all of it, there are no persons.
If you want to draw a line then it depends on how you draw it if a person is the same when all the parts has been changed.

An interesting point of view. Thanks for elucidating.

I've been studying 日本語 for a year now and I can still barely read VNs or a couple of pages of manga. The grammar rules just don't stick to me, I feel like I must suffer from retardation or a really low IQ. I'm honestly starting to feel like spending all my time on the internet has turned my brain into mush.

Meanwhile I see people who have studied in half the time make twice the amount of progress as me.

Then again I am lazy. I have no motivation whatsoever. If my mom didn't get me out of bed every morning I probably would just sleep until I die.

Just end me

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, 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, 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.

What a time to be alive...

I wonder how much a life size version would run.

i would run until it ran out of breath, as long as you can run further than she can you'll catch her eventually.
>> No. 28426 [Edit]
what if it can run forever?
