Vocaloid / Happy Birthday Miku Anonymous 1144[Reply]

A few days ago it was Hatsune Miku'a birthday, aka her 10th anniversary. In honor of that, I decided a little thread dedicated to all things vocaloid would be fun.
Some discussion ideas:
>How did you find out about vocaloid?
>Favorite/Worst song?
>Favorite/Worst vocaloid?
>Favorite/Worst producer?
>Favorite/Worst music video?
>Have you played project diva? If so what is your favorite song to play and are you good at it?
>Have you tried to make a song using vocaloids before?
>Anything else you wanna contribute?

…that's all!

Got into vocaloid since I was around 13 and I'm sure all of those strangely catchy tunes got me through those dark times when I didn't have the guts to go to help for anyone else.
While I feel like there are just too many vocaloids being released these days to keep the industry going and I can barely keep up with them all, Rin/Len, Iroha, Gumi and Miki will always be my standouts.
Many songs are almost like public domain-ish music so people can happily make parodies with fandoms they're into without copyright strikes and I feel like using the synthesized voice with solid instrumentals dares people to cover them better which is where my strongest interest lies, in the covers themselves that bring out the full potential of each song.

Hooray for a thread revival!
>How did you find out about vocaloid?
I don't really remember, it was a long time ago, maybe around 2008ish? I liked anime too and at the time it was impossible to not know about vocaloid if you liked anime.
>Favorite/Worst song?
It's too hard to choose a favorite, off the top of my head I like these

I don't have any songs I hate, there are a bunch of low-effort covers out there and bad amateur originals if you look hard enough though. For a popular song, I don't like Sand Planet very much.
>Favorite/Worst vocaloid?
Len as my favorite, Gachapoid as the worst, I haven't heard anything he wasn't terrible in.
>Favorite/Worst producer?

Last year ago people were lamenting the gradual decline of vocaloid but I can gladly say I'd disagree.
While it's definitely pre-boon level of public prominence in comparison to it's golden age with big names like scop, wowaka, hachi ect retiring, inactive or choosing to pursue music on their own terms after they've honed their skills and it's not just a bit of fun anymore, songs say for example, anything of Balloon's are still pretty viral and are just as consistently polished quality and just as meaningful as the music of yore.
I couldn't be more thrilled that it's becoming slightly more mainstream loving vocaloid and it's being done in such lavish style, too.
Kikuo, JitbataP, Nashimoto Ui, Balloon, Hachi PinocchioP, Powa, Scop are amazing producers and so many hog space on my Iphone.

Sage for a somewhat off-topic reply, but oh my God, I was trying to think of the name of a specific author (Capote) for an entire day recently, before I gave up. Finding this name is indescribably satisfying. Thank you so much!

I read In Cold Blood in high school, and the literature teacher I had was absolutely amazing (even if, or maybe somewhat because, she openly admitted to grading me more strictly than others), so I really enjoyed the book, on top of being able to discuss it in-depth and really get a better feel for all of its elements compared to my usual understanding of books that I read. That was a nice class.

Entirely separate anon, but
>Like you know Lolita is considered a great piece of prose too but…let's be honest
Let's be honest what? It dealt with pedophilia, yeah. I guess that's the elephant in the room to which you were referring? That doesn't change the fact that it genuinely is a masterful piece of literature. Just because you dislike the subject matter, that doesn't somehow invalidate the weight of the work. If anything, I think that Nabokov was incredibly successful with his writing, due to the extreme emotions it elicits from people, you included.

I used to seriously abhor Chopin's The Awakening. Just absolutely fucking hated the thing. After thinking about it for a while, though, I realized that because she was able to make me feel that strongly about the subject matter, Chopin had actually done an excellent job as an author, and it has since become one of my favorite books.

Haha I'm glad you found it, anon!

And I agree completely about English lessons. I was so lucky to have some excellent teachers who made the texts we did so much more enjoyable. Being able to discuss them in-depth with an adult who can provide alternative and deeper readings was so important to me as a teen. I'm still in touch with two of my English teachers, and that's just reminded me to shoot one of them an email back.

Cute Characters Thread? Anonymous 3946[Reply]

I've been a long-time lurker and I've never actually spoken. I'm usually alone most of my time but I've been spending it playing Warframe.
So far I've grown attached to one frame - Ivara. I love her so much, her tree frog aesthetic is so adorable honestly.
Do any other femanons here have a few characters that are adorable to share?

Tropes/Archetypes/Thinking you're actually that character Anonymous 1932[Reply]

What character archetype have you felt that you closely resembled or related to? Using an anime pic, but it can be from western or eastern media.

Did you ever go through a sort of growing process where you're no longer capable of relating to characters you once did?

This thread is for stories about yourself or others you have known.

To add on to this, I would also portray this kind of "manic pixie dream girl" persona around those guys and act all cheerful and supportive when I was actually a depressed loser irl. It made me feel kind of powerful to have men fall in love with this fantasy of me.

NEET stands for Not in Employment, Education or Training. A NEET is not necessarily a hikkikomori. A hikkikomori is not necessarily a NEET. A homebody is not either. You are a homebody. One cannot be "kind of" a NEET. One is or is not a NEET.

Generally that type of introverted, secretive characters, it's a common trope. There's not really a character but more like a specific trait in different characters, I can relate to two characters who are enemies for example because I see ~something~ in each of them. However, I wish female characters in anime would get more development.



Petz 5 breeds CATZ…

Pet Sim Games Anonymous 3741[Reply]

What are your favorite pet sim games?

Mine is definitely Petz 5, Oddballz, and as for the riding genre, so far it's Let's Ride Silver Buckle Stables because at the time the graphics and customization of the horse were great at the time. Any recommendations are appreciated! I've heard Star Stables is good but it's multiplayer, so I'm not sure if I like that or not.

I really want to get Nintendogs + Cats for the 3DS because I loved how fluffy everyone looked in the demo, but I wish the world was more open in Nintendogs. I've never played Sims Pets because I dislike how uggo the pets are, but maybe I should give it a go anyway. I wish there was a more realistic pet game with more intricacies in it, but unfortunately it's such an associated genre with kids it seems like they'll always have a wide degree of simplicity.

Petz 5 will always be close to my heart as it was the first time I started to get into files and edit shit around. I wish more pet games incorporated breeding into them.

Anonymous 3837

Holy shit op, saw the image you posted and it took me waaaay back. I remember when I bought Petz 5, me and my sister would play it nearly everyday. It was pretty fun game but gave me this weird eerie feeling every time I would play it. I wanna find the disk and play it again.
I played a lot of pet sims when I was little most notably nintendogs (which you already mentioned) and the Catz games for DS and Gameboy. I also played a few other pet games for the DS, one I remember was this Dog Fashion show one which was actually kinda fun cause there was strategy with how you dressed your dog. There was of course basic pet care included as well but fashion was the main point.
I got the Pet Expansion pack for Sims 4 but it gets kinda boring after awhile. The really fun part is making the pets.

Anonymous 3779

I really like that it's a horror without the shitty, cheap jumpscares. A lot of it really taps into some of my own fears which is great. My only problem is that it's really heavy and at the end of a long day, I don't really feel like watching heavy things so I think I've only watched 2/3 episodes in total. I feel the same about Black Mirror which I also love but can't really force myself to watch anymore of.

Salem is in the first episode, come on. If you expected it to be like the original show when it's based on an entirely different piece of media, you deserve to be disappointed.

Anonymous 3757

i finished the show yesterday, it actually gets better and better once you get into it! even though, yes, the feminism propaganda is a bit much, its easy to just ignore it and enjoy the rest. i personally love how they portrayed aspects of satanism/witchcraft for how they really are.
i recommend watching it if you enjoy other series like american horror story.
