What are some Anime/Manga related things one should never, ever, do?
Make threads like this one.
Brag about it IRL/online and calling yourself otaku
Rely heavily on the subjective opinions of others.
Let yourself fall into an incestuous circlejerking groupthink-addled community.
Lose your sense of fun.
read Junji Ito right before going to bed
Ask for recommendations.
Use words like 'waifu' in face-to-face conversation, or any Japanese that you've 'learned' from anime
make threads bragging about "best girls"
Sing any of the OPs out loud. I'm too embarrassed by my horrible pronunciation.
Mix 3D logic into 2D
>Not just humming to it
You gay son?
Try to attack female VAs with a crowbar for 'committing the crime of marriage'
Not drawing the line between what you like in fiction and what you like IRL
>giving a fuck whether or not people stream anime
I only download stuff I know I'll re watch later.
Just think about all the horrible engrish, then you wont feel bad.
Attempt to hide your identity with a pair of sunglasses or an eyemask.
Try to assault female VAs while claiming you're the next Vic Mignogna.
I know a person irl who uses a lot of japanese words and every time I hear it I tell him to "quit speaking moon"
Just remember livestreaming anime != streaming anime.
>not humming manly mecha theme tunes in public restrooms in an attempt to cottage other fans for spontaneous sex
What a fag.
Whenever my friends asking me what TV shows I watch, I'll usually just say 'Chinese Cartoons'
It's not actually anime, but I memorized the opening to Tales of the Abyss a long time ago.
I would sing it in class and to other people, I even sang it to a girl I barely knew.
I am mortified.
I've been humming to the Gundam Build fighters second OP, quite a few people who don't even know Gundam think it's pretty catchy and good.
If I am talking to a friend who watches anime I always refer to what I watch as "girly chinese cartoons", but people around me think I'm serious
>I know a person irl who uses a lot of japanese words and every time I hear it I tell him to "quit speaking moon"
Yeah, come of as a filthy bigot, that'll make everyone like you.
holy fuck this, I feel like something is going to jump out at me when I'm walking through my house at night now with all the the lights off
Why didn't you warn me /a/?
Awesome blogthread OP
Glad to see the board quality is definitely not getting shitter and shitter by the day
>Not wearing sunglasses
normies don't know what moonspeak and moonrunes are so they don't assume it is racist
>telling a weeb who doesn't even speak the language to stop putting japanese words into his talk
pls go and stay go
>being an asshole
let the kid do what he wants, it's not hurting anyone.
Do you even know what you're saying/
>it's not hurting anyone
getting "baka~ baka~" yelled at me is more annoying
I know, you just can't stop thinking about how shitty the endings are.
Let me tell him to shut the fuck up, it's not hurting anyone.
Look at the responses
It's all faggots blogging about things they do
It is in essence
So if the guy was talking about wabi-sabi or something else sensible, it would be ok?
You're hurting his feelings
So you speak it?
come on now, either you're a weeabo or you're a bigot, pick one, embrace the fagotry.
Only a few Junji stories have bland endings.
I don't think any of them are shit
okay here is where I draw the line
words that don't work out in english well or words that are best left in japanese are okay
so stuff like wabi sabi and describing foods is okay, hell even tsundere is okay to say if people know what it means since describing it in english is an effort
but going around and saying "baka" and "kawaii" in everyday sentences is dumb
They are not bland, but they are almost always abrupt cop-outs.
Watch an anime called "Boku"
look at this edgy motherfucker
Leave him the fuck alone or don't hang out with him, if people do shit that irritates you, don't socialize with them, but if you socialize with them, the onely one that looks like a prick is you, no matter how irritating they are, when you try to dictate how they should bihave.
How the hell are they almost always cop-outs? Because the protagonists of each story doesn't always get killed or some shit?
And he's hurting my sensibilities by being a retard near me. I'm going to help him improve his social life.
Junji Ito follows the way of the knife. He chops off an incomplete story and says "Now it is finished, because it ends here."
>giving a fuck
just ignore him you autist.
b-but when I say "quit speaking moon" it's playful
It add some mystery and leaves the ending to the story up to the imagination of the reader
>needing to be spoonfed
Uh, because nothing is explained and it's obvious he just threw together some shit and didn't know what to do it with?
Go on /a/
It's not just "leaving the ending up to the imagination of the reader". It's more like
>I only care about quality if I'm going to watch it more than once
That's the most retarded shit I've ever heard.
New guy here.
People who think it's cool/cute/unique to use Japanese words as catchphrases in English are not just being annoying, they're giving a bad name to anyone who has any interest in Far East culture whatsoever. I just use my Berlitz program and give insights and fun facts about Japanese/Chinese culture whenever one of my friends asks, but I don't run around spouting Japanese one-liners because, in your average American town, that just weirds people out (at best).
Defining yourself by your hobby
I feel like there's some context to this post that I'm missing.
They're annoying to you, not everyone don't speak for all of us just because you're self-conscious to a point where you feel embarrassment from actions of others, its called mind your own fucking business, it doesn't matter what the fuck you think because its their life.
Talking about your waifu with your college professor
I did that once it was pretty awkward when I had to pull up pictures of her off of 4chan
You're a huge weeb IRL, aren't you. That's the only explanation for why you're in full arm-flapping defensive mode over this. Or are you just going SJW on us?
I did this once. Turns out we had the same waifu so he passed me on a class I should have failed.
Yeah luckily I had it saved on my flash drive
I also gave a speech about my favorite yuri and harem in front of the class
for /a/ read manga
I was wondering if you really were one of those kinds of weaboos, but now I'm positive. Have fun pretending to be someone's white knight while you shame every single enthusiast of Japanese culture who isn't socially retarded.
Who was your waifu?
>You're a huge weeb IRL, aren't you. That's the only explanation for why you're in full arm-flapping defensive mode over this.
I don't do the whole japanese shit, I spent most of my early live being prosecuted over my nationality so I get defensive when little pricks think its edgy to try and dictate how others should live.
You can believe whatever the fuck you want, that's the beauty of it.
>I spent most of my early live being prosecuted over my nationality
what are you and where did you live?
Black man in china
Avatar as you're waifu.
>"DON'T SUPPORT THE INDUSTRY"
fucking leave, holy shit.
Doesn't matter where I am, but I was born in Bosnia in 86, earliest memories I have are of being on a bus and being driven to a concentration camp.
inb4 all the jokes, like I don't know why you asked.
I bet it's something hardcore like "I was Australian and moot kept making fun of me".
oh anen ur silly
Being american must be pretty shit, then.
Sucks that your native language isn't latin-based, latin-based languages make learning other languages a breeze, even jap.
I knew it
lend your stuff (manga) to anyone, unless you don't want it back
You know, I was going to joke "That's a funny way of spelling 'slut'", but now that wouldn't work. Thanks for ruining my fun.
Close, kinda. He said he'd given up on trying to find a real woman that was into cars and beer years ago. Guy also had a pretty sick whip.
Thats not nice.
Getting gangbanged by wolves to buy safe passage for your loved one doesn't make you a slut
holy shit your professor was based
what did he teach?
Join an anime club.
Act like /jp/.
Think things that aren't anime are anime.
Not realize that nips have shit taste in niptoons.
Solely listen to Ops or JPop artists that had one or two enjoyable songs that were in ops/ed.
Be the faggot you already are.
Asuka is a slut
>Act like /jp/.
Fuck you nerd.
how quick everyone shuts up.
How about you fuck off.
Are you Bosnian Muslim? I say this as a palestinian, so I kind of know that feeling bro
>Are you Bosnian Muslim?
Yeah, serbs weren't exactly rounding up their own.
how did you get him to mention his waifu?
Well my country is pretty shit and non existent but you're always welcome here
Go to cons/reveal your powerlevel in public
>Doesn't stream his anime in 720p
>Calls me the retard
Drop a colony onto Earth
Char never did that though
Wow, and there you go, proving how retarded you are.
Resolution doesn't mean shit. I can upscale a 240p to 4k and it's not gonna make it HD.
One day someone is going to walk up to you and ask what song you're humming.
I see we meet again
I highly doubt that.
>not understanding the connection.
I'm not lofti either! I'm just an anon.
Where are you getting these impressions from??
You're clearly hiding something..
The Uruguayan Jew?
And you won't even remember the name of the song.
I'm none of these people.
I ran into him in the parking lot as he was leaving and commented that there probably wasn't a single stock piece on his car. He took the chance to show it off and started showing me all the shit he'd done to it. He had a tiny figure on the dash and I asked him if he was a Misato fan. He half-jokingly told me he'd marry her if he could and I shot back "So she's your waifu." He had a laugh and said "yeah but most people don't understand that kind of thing so it doesn't come up much."
The Moroccan weaboo
I bet you're persian
God damn it this is why /<anything>/ is always bad, you start assuming identities in the mist of genuine anons like myself.
I hate Persians
>streaming in 720p
>thinking it's high quality
Shit nigga. Fuck no.
>I hate Persians
You are too based to be anon
But fine I'll give up this witch hunt
But know I'll never give you up O strange stranger
Well, take comfort in knowing your plague is destroying Europe now.
Reveal your powerlevel.
They just don't make teachers like this any more. RIP in peace to men like this.
For better or worse they'll probably be more common in the coming years.
I will think of you when my back pain is healing.
May you get better to deadlift 4 hamplanets
Speak of it in public
too edgy for me
I talk to my friend all the time about Anime. Why should I care about what people think of me?
>not wanting to live in shariah-law controlled Europe is 'edgy'
>throwing around insults based on nationality is edgy
fuck off edge master
Fuck you, fun things are fun
I didn't insult you (or that poster if it isn't you)
I insulted the fact that his religion has an extremely large group of zealous fuckheads that are hellbent on forcing their 'culture' on everybody.
>/pol/turds spreading to /a/
Jesus fuck stay out
>I didn't insult you (or that poster if it isn't you)
new game pls
>I'm too embarrassed by my horrible pronunciation.
Japanese is probably one of the easiest languages to pronounce, what's wrong with you?
Yeah, you're a mudslime.
Well there's a team making a 7th fan game
but I tried it and the timings for chips just felt really off
