Thanks to COVID-19 I can't get free coffee anymore at my workplace.

Also I can't open my fresh canister of soy sauce. I already rubbed off the skin of my fingers, trying to do so.

My new boots are too small and I have to return them.

My new trousers are skin tight and that makes them uncomfortable to wear.

Cold showers make may skin shed tiny flakes. Disgusting!

I'm so very slightly inconvenienced. Curse you, pretty Nico Nico Nii girl!

a few years ago i was pretty into anime. i had figurines and posters, and had the patience to keep up with airing stuff too. but since around 2013 i just haven't really had the patience to watch anime anymore. i tried going back to a show i really liked, haibane renmei, but this time the flaws of the show (i.e. the second half) really stood out to me a lot more.

and while i still really like manga, i feel like i dont have the same high opinion of the industry as a whole. i'm not one of those miyazaki type anti-moe snobs. i actually really like a lot of cute SoL stuff, but i feel like a lot of the stuff i read nowadays is more entertaining than artistically profound. could a work as good as YKK come out in today's environment? i like the mangaka's new stuff like Kotonoba Drive, but it seems so rare nowadays. maybe it's just not being scanlated. even stuff that is a bit deeper like shojo shumatsu ryoko seems like yuribait.

i get that there has always been low quality trash. maybe it was always this way, and it just took me this long to realise it.

or maybe i'm just being a hipster, now that anime is a bit more mainstream than it used to be.

i suppose its natural that tastes and values change over time, but it's a bit sad when i realise how much time i poured into this interest. did i really waste all this time on something so trite? i'm at the point where i can't remember what drew me to it in the first place.

anyone else had any similar experiences?

>There's like one studio that isn't very afraid to experiment (Science SARU) and that's pretty much it.

I was a huge Yuasa fan for ages, it seemed like everything he worked on was great. But I haven't really liked anything he's done since Yoru wa Mijikashi Aruke yo Otome back in 2017. Lu Over the Wall from the same year felt rushed, as Did Ride Your Wave from 2020. Has he lost the magic touch? Compare the stuff he's doing nowadays to this scene from Mind Game–it just seems a lot less ambitious.

There's one more Yuasa show in which you can see his influence – Devilman Crybaby from 2018. It really had Kemonozume vibes.

Unfortunately, Yuasa's and Choi's studio (Science SARU) started making "family-friendly" anime in the vibe of Ghibli (so yeah, the two movies you listed). Eizouken was quite good, but it definitely wasn't a typical Yuasa show.
Willing to bet that's part of the reason why the guy's taking a break from the industry (he effectively resigned from being SARU's CEO after Eizouken).
He's still working on that Inu-Oh thing… the premise doesn't speak to me very much, so we'll see how that one turns out.

i feel like this is reflected in the subject matter of a lot of shows. isn't the industry oversaturated with either isekai type fantasy shows or high school SoL or drama shows? not that these settings are inherently bad, but is there anything with a more original setting or premise, e.g. paranoia agent, texnolyze, cowboy bebop

maybe its more the tone than the subject-matter. shows these days seem like they're aimed more at being entertaining or relaxing rather than actually exploring interesting ideas…

but i'd love to be proved wrong! what are the most interesting and original shows/manga/whatever that you've seen in recent years?

>isn't the industry oversaturated with either isekai type fantasy shows or high school SoL or drama shows?

The situation with isekai got bad enough the major light novel competitions stopped accepting isekai entries.

I think drama and SoL won't stop being popular.

There has also been a major peak in yuri shows recently, for whatever reason.

>a more original setting or premise


I've been hearing Made in Abyss was pretty interesting, still haven't seen it, though. It's supposedly darker than anything that's come out recently, is said to have a good worldbuilding. I think I'll watch it soon.

Houseki no Kuni was pretty good. I don't think I know a show with a similar premise.

I just wanted to post some stuff I've been thinking about chans. There's no special point I'm arguing.

As far as I am concerned 8ch has been taken over and destroyed. I was just looking at some screenshots of some older 8ch stuff today: that whole story about the bank robber, people having fun with copypaste before racequeen, all the fan art about nomads travelling from 4chan and rebuilding. It was nice to remember back and think about what a good run we had. I feel like none of the new alt-alt chans have any hope of being close to what 8ch was and that's a shame.
More than that thought I'm starting to feel like the imageboard medium is a dead end. I asked myself what do you even get, today, out of an imageboard that you don't on reddit or something else. They're heavily censored these days, I find that the mods on these create-your-own-board sites really abuse their positions and remove far more than they should.
Maybe it's wrong to focus so much on the free speech aspect, the main purpose of chans is to free people by removing the assocation of their post from their identity. That is the key. What do we gain from that? Frustratingly a great deal of noise and incessant meme posts is one of the results. It's too easy to drag down the level of discussion.
The cultures are often based on paranoia and distrust to the point that spending too much time on a chan can leave you unable to interact and integrate with non-chan people. Not to ignore the enojable side of it: all kinds of chaos, fun. a place to learn about extremes thaht you would never normally see (gore, fetishes, horror stories, …). but I see the creation of OC drying up. Memes used to churn around pretty regularly, but now how long as pepe the frog been going? Also the weird meta-awareness and understanding of memes and propogation has created a weird new irony to everything. The innocent playfulness has been lost.
What would you like to see in the future? How can be change the medium itself to enable better more creative communities to form?

Some interesting articles on chan culture (got any more to share?)

This entire thread gives voice to my nebulous feelings. I feel loss, but then I wonder what exactly I lost. At the same time, I feel like a burden has been lifted from me. I browsed 4chan from 2010-2014, then 8chan until 2016. The change wasn't inspired by gamergate, but because 8chan had a furry board. I left when a user of that board created some system that bypassed the captcha to spam it with random posts from 4chan. The board had low enough traffic at that point that each thread was just a series of non-sequitur with a few actual posters who were surprised to still see each other there. It was an alienating experience. I could have used other boards, but I came to the realization posted in >>1381, that I wasn't having fun.

Looking back, I don't know how to feel about my brief six years. The negatives have already been enumerated in this thread: paranoia, self-loathing, political extremism, etc. One thing that sticks in my memory was how strange it was that a group of supposedly freethinking outcasts would place so much emphasis on conformity to their standards. It was simple peer pressure. There are so many examples I can think of. Perturbator did a Q&A on 8/mu/, and which went well until /pol/ asked if they could use one of his songs in an anti-immigration video, and spammed "cuck" for hundreds of posts when he said no. Then there was the buzz around the lunar eclipse on the 27th of September 2015 being the moment when the Jews launch their bid for world domination and/or the global economy shatters. It was ludicrous seeing people getting banned for even questioning it.

There were good moments, obviously. I met people I'm still friends with now. I used /fit/ to get fit, /loomis/ to take up art as a hobby. There was this one really funny chick who played through Otome games while typing in all caps to get everyone hyped up.

Ultimately it wasn't as big a part of my life as it was for most people, so it's tough to say whether I miss it or not. I don't use social media that much, and I think that's been good for me. I have a solid family and growing network of people I hang out with in real life, so I no longer have that deficiency of social interaction that imageboards once filled. Maybe it would be best to just remember the good and let things take their course, whether that be a return to the golden days, transforming into something newPost too long.

Just a random rant…

I don't go back that far, I arrived in late 2009 / early 2010 and stuck to r9k the entire time. The culture on r9k at that time was fine, lots of nice people recommending me good movies and books to read, a lot of interesting threads from people around the world in different occupations and with unique interest. I heard about Wizards for the first time, not realising I would become one a few years later. It was really quite comfy back then for me, and I didn't mind the evolution of the board over time for the most part. If anything, my main problem was with tripfags who were always building cliques which would routinely disrupt normal threads by 2013 or so.

I've read a few threads from archives from earlier 4chan and it doesn't really appeal to me, though I guess I was never a weeaboo. I don't know, something about the way a lot of the threads were based around stories that were presented as if they were real, and plenty of people acted as if they were real, but were obviously fake - I can't stand that aspect, and that was present on r9k when I first got there. Things like 'The Tales of Fionn' just felt like a huge waste of time to me, though some people obviously got a lot out of it.

I just miss the sincere posting. Back in 2011-2013 I was struggling with a lot of depression, on my own without a job due to being bullied out of it, with social anxiety, etc - it was just really nice, it felt like some magical force had brought all these unique and genuine people together, and many of them were going through issues similar to my own, or even if they weren't similar - reading about other people's struggles helped give me perspective, and then there were still lots of fun, interesting threads and stories. It felt like I was getting to pry into all these hidden places, with sushi rolls claiming to work in interesting jobs or have lived through all sorts of unique experiences.

Then a lot of drama took place which I didn't mind at the time and made sense in the context, but by 2016 or so things felt very different, and things went rapidly downhill from there as far as i'm concerned, to the point that today its unrecognisable. It's just filled with irony soaked meme shit, it feels like a wasteland so I've managed to stop going there the past few years more or less. The worst thing is this feeling that all the genuine people have evaporated, I was probably already a little older than the averaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I started browsing back in 2010. I sometimes miss the culture but when I look back in the archives and stuff I don't really know what I'm actually missing. Maybe it's the nostalgia of the dumb edgy humor and being a teenager. But anyway, post GG/2016 chan culture is mostly just pol stuff, and I'm glad I grew out of being a racist teenager and liking that stuff. It feels a lot more freeing now to not just constantly look at negativity on 4chan/8chan anymore and instead to come to places like this.

I wanted to post this on /superhell/ as to not rain on anyone parade but it was locked.
I can't be the only one who fucking despises this disingenuous "wholesomeness" on altchans such as this site
This fake facade is what I go to IBs to escape from yet there are people who actually enjoy pretending not to hate how everyone acts like to get along with each other
I hate both myself and other sushis (fuck that filter by the way) and I don't see any point in sugarcoating that fact
