Hello everyone, I'm not a frequent here. I only seldomly lurk One Piece threads.
Today though, I'm here to talk about something different. A manga called Homunculus which I came by a month or so ago. I'm not reading it fast, I just finished the 5th volume.
Does anyone here read Homunculus? Does /a/ like it?
Love it, add to that anything this author bother to make. Ichi FUCKING ruled!
For the ones who have never heard of it, Homunculus is about a newly hobo putting a hole on his skull to attain phycic powers.
>I'm not a frequent here.
Stopped readding there, fuck off.
Yep, and it's amazing.
The retard is even admitting he doesn't even lurk here, why do you respond to him? Do you want to see the board get even wrose than it already has? How long have you been here?
Learn to spell before complaining please!
I liked it at first, but then it got weird. I mean weirder. At the end it completely lost me. Actually speaking of that, what did happen in the end? Did he just simply go crazy or what?
Look at the kind of shit threads that are made all the time because people like you keep responding.
Fuck off OP
Drilled a couple holes to much and went full on crazy! That´s my take on it atleast!
HE HASN'T LURKED GET HIM OUT.
This board is ALL about manga/anime discussion. Why do you dismiss it simply because he's a newfriend? You don't even know if he's a fag yet.
I just felt like replying, nothing else.
Answer, how long have you been here?
Did you come here with SnK? SAO?
Look at how the stupid fuck talks.
Yakuza Gundam is best arc.
Trany fishbowl is 2nd best arc.
I came here when Naruto discussion was still tolerated
bullshit thread bullshit faggots
kill your self animefags
>hurrrr muh super secret /a/ culture durrr
? I´m not following you here? Perhaps you are to complicated for me to understand or simply you don´t know what the fuck you are on about!
Anyone with half a brain can lurk for a few days and get the feel of how to make a thread on /a/ without coming off as a newfag fuck, he's retarded.
Even the mods support the lurking, stupid fuck.
Wow. Get the fuck out. You're a raging asshole, even by /a/'s standards. We don't want you here. Get out. You are the cancer.
He only had one question m8, no need to act this retarded.
What other sites do you visit retard?
We haven't had a Homonculus thread at this time of day in god knows how long. It's welcommed. It's a good manga.
>thread derailed because someone couldn't contain their autism
good job. I know you're a blast at parties.
be glad he didn't talk about dragonball z or some other show like that.
Get back to reddit where your personality is accepted and praised. Stay the fuck away from /a/.
>not a Hitachi
gaia, reddit, MAL and tumblr.
I know you're expecting him to say that to feel better about yourself
In my language Homunculus sounds like "stuffing a man inside your ass"
Manga discussion, not a req thread. It's fine, go report shitposters elsewhere instead.
Lurking is reddit now?
This is why manga discussion nowadays is nothing more than big three shitposting and a few manga here and there.
The worst part is that he could have a higher power level than any of us. Not frequenting /a/ =/= enjoying shit shows/having low power level
OP here, I'm not going anywhere. I lurked way too many One Piece threads to understand just what kind of faggotry you mean, and you can fuck the right off.
As for Homunculus, yeah, it goes weird fast. But I'll try to make it to the end. Slowly.
Why? you going to crap on the unrelated sides of my online life?
If it hadn't been for your autism, we would be having a nice thread about Homunculus right about now.
>Does anyone here read Homunculus? Does /a/ like it?
I would've said lurk more at this statement regardless of anything else he said.
If mangafags weren't in general more accepting the userbase wouldn't be so shit and you'd have more threads.
Well I don't think the thread would be long anyway. I mean Homunculus is not that popular a manga, and I'm not even half way through it, so not much to discuss.
Not much happened so far anyway. Newly hobo meets strange medical student, drills a hole in his skull, therapies a Yakuza guy and almost rapes a highschooler.
ITT: newfags pat themselves on the back while attacking the evils of actually lurking.
>am I fitting in yet?
Ever since people started telling Log Horizon and KLK newfags to fuck off back to /vg/ and animesuki this has becoming more and more common.
OP's post is fine; he isn't asking for recommendations, he isn't being obnoxious, and he isn't spreading your gross fucking forum cancer around /a/ unchecked.
This shit is turning /a/ into /v/ 2.0 :
Every thought /v/ hated all video games because stupid fucks would come in, get told their shitty game like CoD was trash, and figure "Oh that /v/, it hates all games. CoD is just fine, and so is WoW and Halo!" and now everyone on /v/ talks about casual trash games and thinks its cool to hate every single game.
We're going to have the same exact thing happen here except it's going to be anime and new people instead of videogames and feminists, and it's all because of people like you.
You're the one making it worse for everyone else
What the fuck are you talking about? OP hasn't given us any reason to hate him. You only reacted to him saying that he hadn't lurked much. If he hadn't written that, you wouldn't have noticed anything wrong.
Have to agree. Although it´s not the best beggining, there´s still a chance to save this thread.
Lent it to a friend with low-med powerlevels, he was liking it a lot for the creepy factor and attempts of psychological analyses...then "that" chapter in the last volume happened (motel) and he called it gay shit.
If you read 14 volumes and your last word on it it´s to call Nakoshi a closet homo, you must be pretty dense and not have reading comprehension.
H-he just wanted to complete himself ;_;
>If mangafags weren't in general more accepting the userbase wouldn't be so shit and you'd have more threads.
Do you mean more accepting? Cause that doesn't make a lick of sense. Also, if we were more accepting the userbase would actually be shit. And not the kind of shit you think is shit.
Anyone saying I haven't lurked long HASN'T lurked long, that's the point.
Not every newfag is 13 years old though. If everyone in this thread shit on Homunculus, I wouldn't think /a/ hates good manga at all. People who think, who still have half of their brains left should just stop overthinking about boards. So /v/ is shit, so what? /b/ is shit, /a/ is shit. They have always been shit. You can still have decent threads, no? That's what matters.
So just let it go.
Don't mind that idiot. It's funny, he's the very definition of the type of person we don't want, yet he threw the first stone.
I liked Homunculus, but I read it so long ago that I don't remember enough to contribute any really meaningful to the thread. I think you'll find that this is the case with most everyone who would go into this thread. It's simply too old for a fast board like /a/, you honestly would have better luck posting on a real forum.
Report them, it's easily filed under shitposting and if you check /ban these morons get thrown out frequently, so it's not a wasted effort.
I wasn't really looking for a discussion anyway. I mean, like I said, I'm still at the beginning. Just wanted to know if it's any popular around here. Looks like it is, enough for me anyway.
/a/ isn't shit. It's getting there but it isn't shit.
/v/ didn't use to be shit either but it's definitely there now, and I think /vg/ is to blame for a portion of that as well but the majority of it is still /v/'s fault.
The only place that will ever be safe from tumblr-tier cocksuckers is /tg/ because they're over-accepting of everyone and all they talk about is Warhammer.
Not really, the retards are just so desperate for a homunculus thread that they don't even care if the OP is new as fuck.
Which is never good, everyone should spend a few months lurking before posting, it's common courtesy.
Holy shit, this level of stupidity deserves to be in a museum!
Have you explained to your friend that he's the bigger, genuine faggot?
If you didn't come here making it sound like Homunculus was some unknown manga here, you would have sounded leagues less retarded.
Nobody on /a/ cares if you're a newfag or not you stupid fuck. Quit trying so hard to fit in, the only reason we tell people to lurk is so they don't act like you or go around asking for recommendations.
Kill yourself. It's common courtesy.
Do you understand why lurk more is a concept? Here's a hint: It's not to prevent new people from posting legitimate threads. This thread is leaps and bounds better than >>100846627 and >>100851496 which just reeks of idiots who belong on /v/ and /b/. Go report the idiots in those threads instead of shitting up one that's actual on topic. Or would've been, had >>100857170 not done his worst at attempting to fit in.
Whatever the boards are, I'm satisfied with them. The threads I enter usually have new, not-too-bad content, and that's what matters for me. I can overlook the reposts or retarded comments.
They are all bad, because people like you >>100856284 make people making this threads acceptable, since "it's just being mean and elitist to tell people to lurk"
You are equally bad.
>/tg/ is just this group of extremely overweight smelly fuckers trying to desperately get anyone nearby to join their D&D game while still trying to maintain their composer and act cool
>OP makes a thread about an unpopular manga
Yeah he sure is killing us
What's more, these past weeks there has been an increase in the number of shitposting threads and the acceptance of newfags here, do you think there's no correlation?
I really wouldn't call it unpopular. Lots of people read it years ago.
composure*, fuck me.
You can't even compare these two threads, and for your information I reported both the OP and the posts I linked as well as your cross-post.
Had he only skipped the whole I'm new thing this could have been a good manga thread, you can't say the same for that stupid fucking NGE one.
Slippery slope argument
I laugh at you
Thoroughly good manga.
You reported? Excuse me, you reported? I get the newfag treatment, but you actually reported my post? As in, to get me banned?
Jesus Christ, mate.
Thanks for the thread guys. OP here, fucking off.
People on /v/ used to say the same years ago "it's just one offtopic thread" "who cares, we haven't discussed Z.O.E in a while anyway"
This wasn't like this even 6 months ago, I wonder what happened.
>and the acceptance of newfags here
You mean people ignoring the sad fucks from Log Horizon threads who openly admit to being from other websites and only coming here to talk about Log Horizon?
Adding fuel to a fire will only make it burn hotter, if we ignore it and keep it in its own threads it will go away the very second Log Horizon threads do.
If we interact with the cunts at all they'll start becoming members of the community and spread like A CANCER.
/a/ has always been welcoming of people who don't come here and ask for recommendations or act like cancer.
It's fucking great. Good art and trippy story that makes you think about life.
The OP of this thread isn't asking for recommendations you goddamn mouthbreather
This thread proves /a/ is shit, and always will be.
That's what I'm saying, idiot.
He's completely fine in being here and posting.
/a/ has been for years the clossed off elitist asshole of 4chan.
And if most people just told anyone acting new or retarded in the log horizon threads to fuck off, they would, or at least learn how the board is.
>/a/ has been for years the clossed off elitist asshole of 4chan.
Please leave back to animesuki. Holy shit how new are you?
Lurking before posting is common courtesy after all. You see for yourself what your thread became, lurk and learn how to post to avoid shit like this and help us keep the board a decent place in the future.
You may not like it but posting like you did is directly detrimental to the board.
That's why there has been a rise of people supporting rec threads, because now it's newfags AS LONG AS THEY ACT FINE, tomorrow as long as they know how to write, and in a week no one gives a shit because they came the last month
Ask this question nearly anywhere else and see how many replies you can get in half an hour. Even if they're mostly shitposting, it makes a point.
Fuck off back to /v/, fagweiner. Quit acting like you're from here.
Yeah the board was doing fine until this idiot posted>>100857170
Well, /a/ is having a general upward trend of elitism. It used to be a lot more like the forums that everyone blames back around ~6 years ago.
Anyways, this poor thread. Meta discussion can be fun, but being derailed with one guy must really be depressing.
>/a/ has been for years the clossed off elitist asshole of 4chan.
/a/ has always been "don't be an idiot" not "fuck all newfags".
You fall into the former.
I sugges reporting every thread where OP admits being a newfag/asks for sauce/begs for recs/gets derailed into metashit
Normally that worked fine, and it's what most people do, but since november we've had less and less moderation.
I wonder what board you are talking about. All you have, and ever had to, do to be welcomed by /a/ is to not post like an idiot, post about anime or manga and know what you're talking about.
And not post a tumblr filename
Or a vlc filename
Or talk about dubs
Or say you are from /v/ or recently /co/
>post a tumblr filename
Post like and idiot
>Or a vlc filename
You're clearly from tumblr if you don't understand that's just people giving each other a hard time.
>Or talk about dubs
Offtopic /v/ posting
>Or say you are from /v/ or recently /co/
Offtopic /v/ and /co/ posting
Well, since this thread shows, saying you are new is talking like an idiot in the first place, isn't it?
And let me remind you, you could easily start a dub thread nowadays thanks to letting everyone in.
Came here expecting an on topic discussion. All I see is self-titled "oldfags" bitching because a "newfag" made a topic about something he wants to discuss. So why are autistic "oldfags" better than "newfags" that are acting according to the rules? All the cancerous fucks should head to /v/ and jerk off to being part of the oldfag masterrace.
Oh wow a decent manga thread
>>>100857170 is just shitposting under guise of being an "oldfag"
Where are the mods?
You're clearly shitposting
>complains about newfag
>complains about people complaining about newfag
You might 've not noticed but during last few months the mod activity on /a/ collapsed.
It actually increased, at least in threads with high shitposting like Space Dandy
So they are badysitting them and allowing rest of the board to rot away.
Yeah, I guess you could say that.
But I guess more reports just come out of those threads.
Can you retarded newfags trying to seem like part of the old guard at least save your tryhard fitting in bullshit for shitty anime threads please? This is a good manga that's rarely ever talked about. I see this thread and think "oh cool" and start reading and realize it's just a shitposting thread because of this faggot >>100857170
Most autistic thread of the year so far?
So did you guys like the art style for the manga?
Anybody who thinks this was /a/'s fault and not OP's is a fucking idiot.
What OP said:
>Hello everyone, I'm not a frequent here. I only seldomly lurk One Piece threads.
>Today though, I'm here to talk about something different. A manga called Homunculus which I came by a month or so ago. I'm not reading it fast, I just finished the 5th volume.
>Does anyone here read Homunculus? Does /a/ like it?
What he should have said:
>Does anyone here read Homunculus? Does /a/ like it?
If you had lurked for 5 minutes you'd realize that saying how long you've been here is a fucking retarded way to start threads.
Not even close.
Because spergs like you will automatically shit it up regardless of what was actually said?
>implying people wouldn't have bitched at that too
They're not, and you should report them for the shitposting they are doing.
You can make any sort of grand claim or justification for shitting up a thread but at the end of the day, you're just a shitposter.
Besides, any real "oldfag" should be well around their mid 20's or early 30's by today and ought to know better than to post than the self-proclaimed board veterans you see in here. They sure as fuck aren't the same people.
Oldfags are a myth.
Not even, that was my only post in this thread.
It's just retarded and irrelevant and if you weren't fully expecting the thread to go this way you shouldn't have included it. What I'm trying to say is fucking think for a second before posting. Think "does how long I've been here matter to this thread in the slightest"? It fucking doesn't. OP deserves it for being retarded. That's like if I walked into Detroit carrying a massive bag of 100 dollar bills. You've only yourself to blame.
These days even the fucking Moot is a newfag.
>Oldfags are a myth.
"Oldfags" are people who've been here for 2-3 years so they think they're entitled to enforce their imaginary rules because of seniority or some other horseshit. Anyone who's been here long enough learns to not care anymore.
Finished reading in 2011 or whenever the scans were completed. Still don't really understand what the hell was going on although I enjoyed myself. Were the homunculi actual representations of the fears of others, or reflections of himself? If it's the latter, did he actually help anyone when dealing with their homunculi/how was he able to know about the guppy etc.?
>Were the homunculi actual representations of the fears of others, or reflections of himself?
More the former early on, more the latter later on. I guess the extra holes does that.
Mind elaborating on why you think it was both? Not disagreeing, but I assumed it was supposed to be a big "revelation" that he was actually looking at reflections of himself all along.
In the beginning, he hadn't really awakened. He saw people for what they were, how the homunculi manifested themselves.
At the moment he receives enlightenment, he realises the truth. He sees everyone as a reflection himself. That everyone is just like him, hurting, weak, disgusting. And to please another is to only please yourself.
They may have been kind of fragments of himself, but his shift in perception changes his worldview entirely. I wouldn't put them entirely discrete, but I think his power merely gave him the power to see something, and that something actually changed.
What did you make of him inheriting the homunculi of others?
I think it was in part to do with being unable to see himself with homunculus-vision. They could've been fragments, expressing smaller latent troubles or desires. But certainly not consuming ones. When he sees everyone else as him is where it all sort of comes together. Honestly though, I don't really enjoy looking too much into the smaller details. It works well as a whole.
I should probably say more specifically, that they are ones that everyone troubles over perhaps. That everyone has that niggling feeling about whether or not they're homosexual and all that jazz.
This guy gets it.
