>Favorite series/manga/VN?
Yoru to asa no uta - Harada
Color Recipe - Harada
Dear my god - Asada Nemui

I wish Asada Nemui would release more manga like their one shot classmate. I'm a sucker for BL that involves physical and mental abuse.

I haven't regularly watched anime in a good few years, although every couple years I always find myself revisiting my all-time fav BL's Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi and Junjou Romantica. I found that Yaoi with decent art and interesting stories was to come by when I was deep into the scene.

They're both kind of slow-burning and I actually liked/cared about the characters in the end, I find it hard to get that from one-shots. Sekaiichi is pretty vanilla, Junjou is a lot steamier (esp the manga.)

Love Stage! is also pretty cute

Anonymous 4251

Thanks, I didn't expect to come back to CC or to get an answer for that. I always forget this manga's title but I always find it because I know the mangaka's pen name is owaru or owal.

Since then I got a new computer and I'll probably play some BL games, especially now that the nitro+chiral games will be released in the West officially. I played the Sweet Pool demo and I was wondering how long the game is? It took me more or less 7h to complete the demo and I think I was about to get the ending with Makoto before the demo told me to buy the complete game. I'm looking forward to Togainu no Chi and Lamento the most.

I have the first volume but it's collecting dust on my shelves, I should read it.

Femanons with musical talent Anonymous 3797[Reply]

Any femanons here musicians or make music?
Almost exactly one year ago I was near homeless and had pursued music my whole life. I was finally able to get my life together and make music almost everyday and found a producer to help me put my songs and lyrics together. I have come so far and finally was able to upload my first real song.

Share songs you have made or are working on and we comment on each others work.

soundcloud links or youtube/bandcamo whatever

If you do not have any media uploaded to showcase your musical talents just leave a post about musical skills you have or goals you want to achieve.

Are you a singer? Play a instrument? DJ?

More girls need to be in the spotlight! We are superstars!

That's a bad mindset, you are severely limiting yourself with beliefs like that!
You don't have to be some physicist or engineer to create your own synthesizers.
All it takes is some knowledge of basic electronics a breadboard, wire, and components as well as some switches.
Just learn to read those wiring diagrams, know what each component kind of does, and have at it.
Watch some of the videos on that playlist and you will begin to realize it's not really that hard if you set your mind to it.

ebegging would imply I am asking for something money or otherwise.

I am just saying share music and musical interests.

I posted in media. It is completely appropriate.

I do not understand what I would be begging for.

Just share your soundcloud or youtube or whatever if you want to share.

Singing talents or otherwise.

I'm trying to make ~computer music~ because I love 80s synthpop but I feel like I have no sense of rhythm or what makes a good song. Currently I'm making background music for an online project and some short videos that I shoot and it feels much easier to go with the flow and create ambient kind of sounds rather than getting into the whole anatomy of a full song. It's really hard for me to concentrate on it for a long time, too, so I only come up with bits and bytes. I wish I could make a song though.

Why can't we have more comfy Video Games? Anonymous 3470[Reply]

I want to play video games to put me in that comfortable mood (either before bed or after a stressful day at school) but most games are either high-intense action games with a lot of testosterone and gore, a boring sports game or puzzle games where things are at stake.

I want more games to put me in that comfy mood like:
>Animal Crossing
>Stardew Valley
>Little Big Planet
>Donut County
>Persona 4 (mostly the school sim, not much the murders and dungeon crawling).

Does anyone know any games that put you in that comfortable mood?

As someone who played the fuck out of me DS I'm here, anon! Not all may be comfy but they're all solid.

-TWEWY, any Ace Attorney/all AA, Hotel Dusk Room, Viva Pinata, Yoshi's Island, PMD Sky, Drawn to Life, Super Princess Peach, Ghost Trick
-Magican's Quest Mysterious Times, 999

And that's not even getting to Japanese games that you could only import with a JPN DS.

Fake fans Anonymous 4165[Reply]

Hope it's the right category, I wasn't sure whether it goes here or /b/.

In your opinion, what separates a "real fan" from a "fake fan"?

If there's a game for example that has an anime adaptation and someone has only watched the anime, how bad it is?
(I think the same goes for manga and reboots, idk insert examples here.)

Anonymous 4166


In most cases people aren't really fake fans, just casuals. There's no real answer to your question, everyone has their own views on the subject.
To give an example, I consider myself to be a fan of the "Tales of" series of video games, but I have not played the games that never got an English translation. I'm sure some would consider me to be a casual because of that, but I consider myself to be a big fan anyways.
Generally imo
>fake fan: 0 interest in the source but pretends to have some (when the brony boom happened I pretended to like MLP because my best friend did for example)
>casual: anyone who knows less about a thing than you do
>real fan: yourself and whoever knows more than you do

Anonymous 4169

I just tried three times to put it into good words, and I'm still failing.

Ultimately though it comes down to a genuine love for the thing in question.
If a person loves it and wants more of it, then they're a 'true fan'.
If a person likes it and might check out more but its no big deal, they're a 'superficial fan', or a casual fan like >>4166 says
But the 'problem' group, I guess, are the ones who have barely checked out (or not at all) the thing in question, but act like the people who love it.
Those are fake fans.

Stuff like cosplaying.
That's the kind of thing that you usually only get from the big time nerds who love the thing to death.
So then someone who's never even watched it comes along and cosplays the protagonist beucase they just like the design - that rubs a lot of people the wrong way.
I personally dont care so much about that - but I think it more comes down to 'cosplays the protagonist becuase the show is super popular at the moment' more than anything. And that's kinda where the issue originally grew from - people using fandoms as a cheap popularity boost, without actually giving a damn about the fandom or the thing its a fan of.

Anonymous 4228

I think what you're referring to by "fake fan" is secondaries, kinda like what >>4169 said with cosplaying. At least that's what comes to mind when I think of a fake fan, even people who engage in video games or watch anime can not be a fan if they didn't like it and don't really care about seeing or playing more, which is a valid opinion. But it is insincere when someone says they like something they have no experience with and refuse to engage with the source material for whatever arbitrary reason they choose. When it comes to manga and anime adaptations it doesn't really matter since it's the same story with roughly the same presentation unless there's a drastic difference in quality (Berserk) or it's some type of anime only spin off.

Anonymous 4232

Am I the only one who doesn't really care about "fake fans"? There are different levels to liking something and I don't think it matters if someone likes something a little less than you lol. Recently a guy at a party told me he thought I was a "fake fan" of something and asked me a bunch of trivia questions to "test" me and I answered them all correctly. He just left mid-conversation in a huff because he was really hoping I'd get them wrong. I think people just really want to be the "most dedicated" or the "biggest fan" of something and it's like…chill it doesn't really matter, there's always going to be someone more dedicated than you anyway. Isn't someone who knows one song from a weird band you like better than someone who has never heard them before? At least you have something to talk about and you can recommend some more. I just don't get it.

Anonymous 4235

I don't think that many people outside the cosplay community really care. Personally I like knowing more about something I like than other people, I wouldn't ever do something autistic like quiz someone though. I'm just competitive I guess.

Are you bothered by violence against women in fictional media? Goblin Slayer this season is interesting enough that I think I'll keep watching for now, but the violence is Elfen Lied-tier graphic and voyeuristic. Like for example, the camera pans to a puddle of blood during a scene where nonhuman fantasy creatures are killed but nude human women get raped and stabbed on camera. I think the story could be told just as well without being quite so graphic; it kind of bothers me that is seems like those scenes of sexual violence were meant to be fanservice.

I have mixed feelings about this.

This is going to be long.

Violence against women in media makes me feel uncomfortable, but I would prefr to focus my attention into the women that are raped and murdered every single day, specially in my country.

What I can't still process is the fact that most women are the ones who make most degenerate shit. Why I'm saying this? Because most hentai and doujin artists are women, not men. In fact, male authors are recently raising in numbers compared with years ago.

As far I remember, most women in Japan enjoy degenerate shit in porn, like non-con, while men prefer MILFs, and a lot of guro artists re women. Fuck, even one of the organizers from Ryonaket is a woman. She is Harasaki, a popular artist in the guro circle, and there are more guro artists that are women.

If any of you have more questions, just ask me!

Anonymous 4203

I'm comfortable with violence as long as it's not sexual, but that's for personal reasons. I'm not going to say "this is bad" because that would be hypocritical tbh.

Anonymous 4204

I've also noticed that most guro artists are women. I'm into it for venting reasons, have limits and admonish violence IRL of any kind but yes, women who were abused's tastes are more likely to veer into violent shit I won't always approve of.
Why do you think this is and does it have something to do with how women internalize pain/helplessess or is just plain degeneracy let of the hook?

Anonymous 4205



Yes, and not.

There are guro artists that use hentai as a coping mechanism. I remember that tksn made an interview time ago, and she stated that she used to be abused by her father and ex couples. Yeah, those women exist, but just it happen doesn't mean that all guro artists or most of them were abused. Some of them just find that entretaining, but a lot of them are fucked up, sadly.

Taste in porn in Japan is also very peculiar. Men prefer MILF. While molestation is very popular towards men, it's even more popular with women.

Anonymous 4211


As an anon once said, the mangaka is a hentai artist and literally cannot draw naked woman non-erotically. Maybe it could be justified saying it creates more of an emotional dilemma within the viewer? Though if the anime isn't as violent and brutal as the manga (I don't know if it is or not) then that point may be lost (too "softcore").
But I don't care, really. I'm not the moral police.

"older" internet Anonymous 216[Reply]

remember when, before social networks got huge, everyone had their own little website? a custom made corner of the internet to display your interests and personality? gfx sites with paint shop pro tutorials?

the only comparable thing I can think of today is Tumblr, but it seems like personal websites have died out.
