I don't know about the Japanese but I sure am celibate on Easter. Hahaha, sorry.

No, they celebrate Eastest.

What are some things you wish you knew when you were younger? Things you'd tell yourself if you could.

I also wish I knew about online shopping and what it could offer from a younger age as well. Particularly in regards to books, I could have got my hands on far more material that I really should have read earlier.

Forget about it. I always brushed like a madman and my teeth still went to shit worse than yours.

I wish I kept better backups of all my data. It's became something of a hobby of mine to archive things I think are cool and I've managed to lose so much stuff out of sheer incompetence. Mostly personal artwork that I'm never getting back.
>> No. 32305 [Edit]
Definitely the book thing. I don't think I ever read anything worth reading until around the age of 16. It was mostly fiction that I can barely recall the stories in.
I especially wish I had read Schopenhauer earlier. Maybe not 'World' initially, but I would give 14 year old me his short essays to read. People (teachers, parents, etc.) never tell you how bad life is and that its problems are intractable.
I think if I had learned that earlier I would have been more at peace, wanted fewer things. Maybe I would have mastered the art of taking it easy, instead of wanting and stressing over thing like I still do today.

It's Tohno's post, so probably a test. Also, I don't comment on people's bans, take it to irc if you're curious. I'm replying instead of deleting because it seems this has to be reminded every X months.

Arby’s has created a chibi character mascot with an “#ArbysWaifu” hashtag.
Retards on twitter are calling it pedo and racist and so on. What do you guys think of this?

How is that not enough? A large corporation is exploiting the waifu concept on main stream media and OP was asking how people with waifus feel about that.
God forbid we give the waifu board a bit of activity and show the board doesn't have to just be people talking endlessly about their personal waifu, nah we have to go and toss this into the catch all board that already gets plenty of posts while screwing up all the post replies in the process. Thanks a lot.
>> No. 32175 [Edit]
Isn't it just one twitter post? I hardly consider that mainstream media at all, considering that maybe a few thousand people maybe saw it. Not like it was being shown in ad campaigns on TV or something. It's pretty obvious what most people here think about others misusing the word, some dislike it and get annoyed while others don't care much. The discussion is mostly about the other aspects of it, bashing corporate marketing BS and how people on other parts of the internet view it in other ways as the OP mentioned pedo/racist/whatever.

I get really triggered when people misunderstand art like that.
Thanks for making the explanation short too, I was about to write a giant rant trying to clarify why the classic ("western") way of art training is the correct way but that's unnecessary I guess.
>> No. 32178 [Edit]
I don't think they are even claiming to give a shit about otaku subculture. The moe subculture has become an internet meme and a lot of normalfags are changing their twitter pfps to cute anime girls for brownie points on social media. Arby's saw this was a new trend and jumped on it.
The point I am trying to get at is that no one really gives a fuck about otaku subculture anymore except us and other small internet communities. This is all a game to them, especially to Arby's considering that they can make money off of being "hip with the kids".

Do you think the youth of our current generation is spoiled by having a limitless amount of media content instantly available to them at a moment's notice?

>the access to some adult material may have spoiled them in a sexual way
This concerns me greatly. Ever since the sexual revolution in the 60s, our society has become absolutely obsessed with sex. And on top of that we are expected to not only accept most types of sexual perversion, but to also celebrate them. I am already begining to see some teenagers on social media openly admitting to watching all kinds of degenerate porn in a non joking manner. As if to say "this is what I enjoy and you all better accept it."
I have no problem with anyone having some weird fetish (unless it's something morally reprehensible) but you need to keep that stuff to yourself or only talk about it in anonymous chatrooms. I would rather not live in a society where I see men openly getting pegged by a dominatrix in the streets.
>> No. 32078 [Edit]
>social media
The honesty of anonymous imageboards and the anonymity of a mugshot. I don't think it should really count.
>> No. 32079 [Edit]
I'm referring to Youtube. Not sure if that is considered social media but it's close.
>> No. 32080 [Edit]
Technically, yes, but YouTube comments were never known for their quality.

Is anyone willing to work on the translation of the 5th and 6th volumes of Seikai no Senki now that it's no longer in hiatus? I'm interested in restarting this project and editing if necessary. I can provide raws for both volumes.

If you're interested, you can either drop a throw away email here, contact me on the tohno-chan IRC, or just register on baka-tsuki and add yourself to the project.

Editors are also badly needed. Everything after Chapter 1 of Volume 4 is mostly unedited to my knowledge, and from Chapter 5 on the style changes completely. Right now I'm working on editing Chapter 1, and when I get to Chapter 5 I'll standardize it so it's all the same style at least, but it's slow work alone.

You don't need an account to edit, but if you want credit you can make one. If not, then just hit edit and get to work. Here is the project for anyone interested.

Where do people with autism fall into the whole world of imageboard otaku and hikki? It seems even most people on a site such as this would make the assumption that the posters are, biologically, normal humans. For someone who is unable to work, I'm afraid it's a little hard to relate to the idea that all otaku must eventually give in to the world of normals. I quite literally have no choice between the hikkineet life and starvation while homeless.

There is literally nothing special about people with autism that are above low functioning autistic folks. I'm 100% confident and certain I'm a high functioning autistic person and I'm not that much different from non-autistic people. You just interpret the world and situations slightly different than other people and may have some sensitivities to sound, touch, and visuals.
>> No. 31911 [Edit]
On most NEET/hikikmmori imageboards I find its usually a contest to see who can have the most fake diagnoses. They seem to think the more debilitating the mental illness,the more "hikki" you are.
>> No. 31937 [Edit]
>I'm 100% confident and certain I'm a high functioning autistic person
Yeah, you and every other ford driver posting on imageboards. Nowadays everybody seems to think they have autism. It's not just "social anxiety teehee". Even high-functioning autism makes it impossible to perform tasks most people consider normal.
>> No. 31942 [Edit]
yeah we all know that being damaged is moe as all fuck, but i wish those people want to talk advantage of damage-moe would just put on an elbow bandage or an eye patch instead of talking about themselves on the internet contsantly. i shouldn't even bother mentioning that someone who fakes an illness and then wears it on their sleeve for attention would fit the profile of a self-centered sadistic narcissist rather than an autistic.

One of the things I think I've realized about dreams is that I think my "inner dialogue" or what I think of as the rational part of my mind, isn't there in dreamland. Every time I remember dreaming "oh wait this isn't real, its just a dream" I either wake up or the dream shifts so radically as to be unrecognizable from the previous scenario, like someone changed the channel.
I don't know if this is accurate for everyone or if it means anything if its true for the general poplace.

"What the fuck? How did you get this? Where did you get this? Why the shit are you giving me this garbage? You keep it, pawn it off to some shop you find or whatever, just get it out of my sight.

I haven't thrown things out, but I've had a lot taken from me. You know those people. They say they borrow something but then they don't just pretend they lost it, they flat out rob you of it.

i came up with this idea that neets prefer to interact with the computer rather than humans because the computer is more trustworthy while humans are endlessly and inscrutably manipulative and deceptive. does this seem plausible, that people withdraw from human contact as a result of one too many backstabbings?

>neets prefer to interact with the computer rather than humans
>pretty much universal among every NEET out there
I don't think you understand what NEET means. It's an acronym that means (N)ot in (E)education, (E)mployment, nor (T)raining. You can be a NEET and simultaneously be an extremely extroverted person, pretty much the kind that would resemble the dog in pic related. For example, someone who doesn't work or study and plays in bars with their band for free would qualify; hobos that love congregating and drinking in corners with their fellow reprobates qualify as well, and so on. Maybe you're confusing NEETs with Hikikomori?

I think you misunderstand what NEETs are, like what >>31766 mentioned. NEETs aren't necessarily withdrawn, introverted people, the definition of NEET is just an unemployed person. There are plenty of people on the dole that spend their days socialising.

I don't hate people, I just like being by myself. Being alone is great.

Okay so lets say you're given the chance to get a do over on life and start over as a girl.
There's a catch, but you get to pick the catch.

- You can be a cute 2D anime girl, but it will be in the world of a horror anime and you die a slow painful death at an early age.

- You're a cute 2d anime girl, but you are born blind and deaf, and can never be cured.

- you can be born as whatever kind of girl you want, but you'll be born in the poorest part of south Africa.

- you're an ugly 2D anime girl who's abused and molested by her father, bullied and treated like shit at school, you never get to have friends, and you die alone as a fat fujoshi.

- you're a cute 2D anime girl from a typical slice of life anime with cute loving friends and are part of a club of your choosing, but you're forced to relive the same 13 days of high school until the end of time.
