Kindred spirits on the roof, I havent even gotten halfway through it but its about a straight girl protagonist surrounded by lesbians

Maybe she becomes gay at the end I dunno, but its not about picking your relationships, its about the relationships of other characters

Josei Anonymous 17969[Reply]

I remember seeing a post about a josei recommendation, iirc it was about a 30 yo/late 20s virgin and the story of her life, her troubled relationships and how she navigates the world. Does anyone know what I’m talking about? I want to read more josei manga, i’ve enjoyed Nana and ‘My lesbian experience with loneliness’ i'd really like some recommendations to similar titles, or series you felt you could really relate to. I couldn’t find an existing josei thread but if there is one, please direct me.
Thanks!

I absolutely adore Kyoko Okazaki's works. Her artstyle is really different to the norm (and also pretty divisive), but personally I love the messy expressiveness of it.

I love the way that Okazaki portrays the female experience, particularly in River's Edge, which is a gritty look at teenage cliques and relationships. The way she portrays relationship dynamics, particularly the one between her main character and her boyfriend, really resonated with me in a way that's difficult to find in other media. It's a bit hard to explain without reading it yourself, but I just felt like all of the characters were eerily realistically portrayed.

The image attached to this post is from Helter Skelter, which is a bit more well known than River's Edge. Here's a summary of the basic plot: "Through round after round of extensive plastic surgery and vigorous maintenance, Ririko has become the absolute manifestation of beauty, and becomes a wildly successful model, actress and singer. However, soon her body, unable to withstand the burdens of surgery, begins to crumble, and along with it so does her mind, as she plummets towards a frightening and inevitable end." It borders on psychological horror at times, but I thought it was a really raw commentary on not only the fashion industry, but also on the difficulty of finding one's purpose and identity.

Also not by Okazaki, but I also liked Moyoco Anno's "In Clothes Called Fat", which deals a lot with eating disorders.

I’m watching parakiss rn, I plan on reading manga after to see any details that weren’t included in the anime. I’m so sad it’s only 5 volumes. I really love the characters and how it’s an extension of gokinjo monogatari! Seeing the familiar characters makes me feel all warm and fuzzy

Ooo thanks for the recs, I will definitely check out Rivers Edge. Your description sounds exactly like the kind of thing I was looking for. I love authors who aren’t afraid to portray their characters’ flaws in an honest way, I tend to like them more that way. I’ve been dying to find a manga I can relate to and obsess over.

As for the art style, I like it! It feels like a heavily stylized mix between Japanese and Western character designs. I can see how it wouldn’t be popular with everyone though.

An old friend of mine recommended ‘In Clothes Called Fat’ to me, I had my reservations about it at first but I think I’m ready to read it now. Tysm for the detailed answer anon <3

anyone have recs for a game like dcss? i like dcss because it's a game you can just open and play consistently instead of just finish and replay. it also stimulates my imagination which is good.

i played m&b warband but i'm really bad at it. stardew valley is super boring. games like minecraft are too sandboxy. if i can natively run it on linux all the better but not really required.

I think the ending where Johnny gives all his rockstar stuff away and just leaves is the most wholesome ending. Like as if he overcame himself.

Unreal World is free on their main website. I'd recommend you to start as the Seal Tribe since they usually start with fishing equipment or the Dirk-somethings Tribe since they start with good weapons. Either way you can do the tutorial which gives you survival equipment for free anyway.

The fishing rod is the most essential since you can eat forever, and for some reason in that game you can drink water from any source since its based on Finland which supposedly has very unsalted oceans for some reason.

I've recently played cyberpunk, greedfall and currently finishing kingdom come deliverance. All of them enjoyable games. I'm looking forward to the new dragon age & mass effect the most as well as cyberpunk new content. When I'm done with kcd I'm planning to play pathfinder kingmaker.

Is it healthy to play the same game over and over? I have been doing this lately with Pokemon Red, not speedrunning but giving myself challenges while I play. Have you ever done this with a game? I feel kind of ashamed but I don't feel like playing anything else.

Anonymous 18061

If you get good at it yes because you can one day monetize it or get a following out of it.

In your case it isn't. It is all for self satisfaction, maybe you should explore other games.

Anonymous 18065

Why not? If you find it enjoyable to play it.

>It's like 2001: A Space Odyssey,
You can say that again, akchually,
some Evangelion elements were implicitely referring to 2001.
The main ones being the Seele monoliths and the delicate design of Ramiel.

Hello. Do any of you know any fiction books that focus its setting during the Stone Age/Paleolithic or Ice Age era? I also very much prefer it to be with a female main character.

I really liked the Chronicles of the Ancient Darkness when I was younger. It's YA fantasy fiction though, so maybe not for everyone.

I keep meaning to watch the show again, it was part of my childhood and I've gotten back into some Teen Titans/DC superhero stuff via Young Justice and some of the new animated movies.

Whose your favorite character? Do you have a favorite arc or episode? Raven and her story has always been mine.

Anonymous 18014

I really like Starfire, although Raven is cool too. I just remembered this show existed and I'm only now re-watching it after so many years, but the Slade arc in the first season is really good.

Same. Had the biggest crush on Robin, but moved on to beast boy when I grew out of my 'silent type' phase. Robin would be so fucking boring to talk to. I bet he doesn't even have any hobbies or interests outside of being strong and fighting crime.

>any hobbies or interests outside of being strong and fighting crime

He is very similar to Bruce Wayne. He is adaptable but he doesnt means it, he can go to a party pretend he is a "playboy" much like a spy puts a social mask but his real self is Batman / Robin. If anything their only hobbies are martial arts, stalking people to learn their weaknesses and gadgets. I think it's explicit that the crime fighters in Batman are unhappy people with too much time on their hands.

Vtubers Anonymous 17044[Reply]

How come the difference between male and female vtubers is so big? I'm not into them myself, but I keep seeing stuff. Checked a little and while the first girls broke 1 million, the guys all have less than 100k. I can come up with some explanations, but this difference just strikes me as insane.

guys are bigger simps, probably. I really like hololive for the talents, because they're legitimately fun people. And so do most, but simping is definitely a contributing factor to popularity too.
Maybe it's just me but I'm not into buying merch/browsing much fan content because it feels too divested from the women, but most guys don't seem to think the same way. Take what you will from that
