Reminder that this actually happened
It's our fault they made the anime
How shit did it sell?
like two fractales I think
Why not just "it's very popular abroad"?
Why "in a 2ch like imageboard" specifically?
That's one and half fractales more than what we all were expecting.
Can you convert that to C3-bus?
It's just how Japs do things.
4ch is pretty damn barren, text boards just dont have any appeal in the west.
>Why not just "it's very popular abroad"?
It implies it's very mainstream, on the other hand
>"in a 2ch like imageboard"
implies it's popular with the same kind of 2ch nerd you'd expect but in other countries
Normal people don't know about 2chan at all.
Oh well, it's not a big deal. If someone gets upset about this, that is pretty sad
Because 2ch is very prevalent in Japan, even amongst adults?
If you think about it, it's pretty much the same shit we do with Japs.
"2ch is monolitically enraged/praising/HURRRRR"
And the number of people believing it is astounding.
Because the Japanese wouldn't understand if you just said "abroad." You have to connect it to something Japanese in order for them to understand the context.
2chan is slow as fuck compared to 4chan. At least 4chan attracts people from all over the world.
imagine if you didn't need to get a proxy.
/b/ would just raid them again like they did in the past
>text boards just dont have any appeal in the west.
I don't agree. The vast majority of posts here are just text. Adding images can enhance things, but they're not required. The reason why the text boards are barren is because they aren't prominently placed (Not on the front page and people often forget they exist. I wouldn't be surprised if some people don't know they exist.), the interface is shit, the default theme is shit, and there is zero moderation (and thus spam all over the place).
2chan doesn't want to attract people from all over the world, that's why they banned foreign IPs.
no they banned foreign IPs because years ago /b/ decided to raid the living hell out of the place and that forced their hands.
Pretty sure that's just reenforcing the fact that they don't want to attract people from outside Japan.
I thought it was russian trolls that caused the ip ban.
The majority of the posts are text, but the images are what attract people to a thread, sometimes even more than the thread's subject.
The reason people text boards don't have appeal in the west is because they're looked on as inferior to image boards.
>>Why should I go on the text-only board, when I can go on the image board? The text board is just text, the image board has text AND images, it's like two boards for the price of one!
how come that does not work the same way in grorious nippon?
OP, stop lying, 4chan has never made anything popular!
