I love Yes too and his vocals and lyrics add a ton to the band. Linking one of my favorite Yes songs that shows off his melody and poetry

Anonymous 24075

Great choice! Very uncommon lyrics for Yes, this is more of a love song. I wouldn't be surprised if Jon had help writing the lyrics, maybe Howe co-wrote them since the poetic lyrics seem similar to the lyrics he wrote on his own solo work but maybe I am being hopeful, since I love Howe as well.
As for Jon's more 'meaningless' lyrics, I really do love how they sound. People make fun at "rearrange your liver to the solid mental grace" and "dreamer easy in the chair that really fits you" but I think both lyrics are so strong and impactful for reasons I cannot quite express.

i know you're all going to call me a pick-me or something like that for posting this, but i really enjoy "To My Dear and Loving Husband" by Anne Bradstreet:
If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let’s so persever,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

Well written women characters by women? Anonymous 24540[Reply]

What are some good women or girl characters written by actual women authors, mangaka, etc.
Pic related is Ruuko from the Wixoss series made by Okada Mari, but it would be nice to know of more. It seems like too many girl characters are all written by men and it doesn't feel as genuine.

Anonymous 24549

I found that most of the characters from Houseki no Kumi were written really well, especially Phosphophyllite, the protaganist. I haven't read the manga yet, but just over the course of the anime she gets huge character development. The author is Ichikawa Haruko.


vtubers Anonymous 24522[Reply]

What do you guys think about vtubers? They are a new advancement in technology that some cam girls are using. They employ Webcam, full body trackers, and of course voice changers to give the appearance of anime girls. Is this the future of what is considered entertainment? Is this somehow tied to the metaverse that is an overall plan for tech companies to sell? Is this good or bad for society in general? Do you even watch vtubers or know who any of them are?

I occasionally watch them. I don't have any hard favourites, but i do quite like Ina. I think her voice is quite calming, and it's nice to have in the backround. I don't think the trend is going to die down, although i do think that it will eventually lose attention and just be one type of streaming, instead of the phenonenon that it is right now.
I think that the biggest strength of vtubing is the media and fanworks that have surrounded it. There are lots of really high quality works that have been made and popularised by the vtuber fandom, which i think is a good thing, as previously small creators have been able to get lots of recognition. For instance, Mazumaros HoloEN animations are fantastic, and a delight to watch.
The main thing i dislike about vtubers, is the constant obvious pandering. Since people liked it when various talents had chemistry and got on well, naturally it was turned up to 11, and every other vtuber is pretending to be a lesbian. It's really unnatural and fake, but regardless, braindead fans eat it up so now it's basically the standard. Coming from someone who really likes yuri, I hate it.
In terms of vtubers and society, I don't think that it is extremely impactful. Parasocial relationships were prevalent long before vtubers, and they'll be prevalent long after. Generally, the main issues and strengths of vtubers are similar to lots of other big trends, which makes sense as they're basically an attempt at merging idol and internet culture
Basically, my opinion is that they're fine, i don't really care.

I think videogame streamers/letsplayers are pretty 'tism already, but making it performative uwu coomer pandering

Anonymous 24529

some of them are alright, like that dog one. however, a lot of them tend to bend their content to appeal to moid's sensibilities too much, like acting like le horny anime girl all the time. still, it's a nice medium, and if they can stop pandering to the weeb autists all the time, they can be really funny and interesting.

Anonymous 24534

i'll never really be able to get into watching streams in general. you'd have to have some pretty severe depression or something to want to just piss away 5 hours of your day watching something that's only reasonably entertaining. maybe i'd watch them more if they made edited videos. my friends showed me mumei, though, and i quite like her. she's sort of relatable.
aside from that, however, i actually think it's probably a good thing. i like the anonymity. it feels like anonymity on the internet has been declining for a while. most people put their names and faces all over everything, and i don't really think that's a good thing. at the very least, i don't like it.

Anonymous 24536

I like mashiro from nijisanji because he does creepy paranormal stuff in his streams and has caught a few "ghostly" encounters while streaming before and he's had a really interesting life so I like hearing him tell stories about stuff he's experienced
also sometimes watch chaika (nijisanji) 3D streams because they're basically comedy skits
most female vtubers seem like weeb coomerbait (or fujobait for the male ones) and I personally don't enjoy watching them although I suppose I can see the appeal

They were my favorite characters in s1 and then s2 rewarded me by making their relationship the best in the show and the emotional crux of the ending. Bonus points for making a lot of people very mad.

Anonymous 24476


nah, I don’t like how they “save” each other, especially Kaworu being a prince charming for Shinji, equivalent of a manic pixie fallen from the sky anime girl
It’s the same shit as marishin, which is disgusting, though I like that kind of dynamics, but not for them
Kaworu x Rei, on the other hand, is more chill, for they being similar by nature and not having a co-dependence for each other: they are both calm and cool, while Kaworu is more suave and Rei is more delicate: a comfy pairing with no dramatic romance. Bonus points for more elegant adult eroticism
of course I am a minority, but I don’t care for kaoshin, even despite it is canon

Anonymous 24505


They have one of the most pure relationships in shoujo.

It's so refreshing to see a shoujo romance where the male love interest is actually caring towards the girl, and not an abusive asshole. Kyo did start out mean, but it wasn't some kind of "Boys over Flowers" shit at least.

>tfw your gf traps an evil god in her own blood on the moon to protect you
I read the manga 10 years after I watched the anime and they come off as so in love to me. Crona was always my favorite and of course I thought "yeah, these two would work" back then but reading everything really solidified it for me.
Intense, world-ending ships are always my favourite though. Homura and Madoka hold a similar place in my heart.

What are your core childhood video games?
No cherry picking to seem cool, if you played nothing but the Sims and OOT post it anyways

Mine are
>Donkey Kong 64
>Ocarina of Time
>Animal Crossing Population Growing and Animal Crossing Wild World
>Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness
>Sims 2 Pets on the Gamecube
>Tak and the Power of Juju
>Super Smash Bros Melee

In the Sims Pets literally the only thing I would do is breed dogs and then sell the parents and make the siblings breed with each other. I have no idea how genetics work in that game but I'd start with two huskies and end up with green and red pug faced monstrosities.
