That's pretty much exactly what I did after I went back to medical school in my 30's and got my degree. It far easier said than done though, took three years to get in, 4 years to get through, and now three years to finish residency.

And it doesn't change things as much as one might think. Still a virgin, still have my waifu.

>Wasn't it weird? I mean going back in your 30s and watching all those younger and more talented people than you

I look young for my age, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Definitely difficult though, even though mid-30's isn't that old, it makes a difference in how quickly your mind and body can work.

Having experience does buy you some respect though. I had some interesting stories and experiences to tell from my years working in the pharmaceutical industry.

The best part of the experience is how it improved relationships with my family. Dad is proud now and doesn't worry like he did in my NEET days. And imouto looks up to me with adoring eyes, like she did when she was little.
>>
>>135946657
Not the guy you're asking, but I've always liked animation. See enough references around on the net to anime, eventually you need to check it out - but I was already prejudiced by watching dubbed Patlabor randomly on TV back in the 90s and thinking it was pretty good.

I only watch 1-2 series per season, just because I have a fairly low tolerance for crap and pedo bait.

But I keep this shit on the down low in real life obviously.
>>
>>135946620
>We're having a lot of these threads lately. Is there some sort of collective existential crisis happening here?

The early generation of /a/nons from the 1990's and early 2000's is hitting the age when one has to wake up and starting facing real life.

Even Moot, I think the true reason he left us was that he simply grew out of 4chan.

I'm slowly approaching your age, and I feel the exact same way. It doesn't help that a large amount of younger posters don't understand the concept of lurking, and as a result the board suffers. Despite being here for many years, I still lurk far, far more than I post as I enjoy the conversations.

Every now and again, threads like this remind me that regardless of age, other /a/nons continue with the tradition of supporting others to follow their dreams.

To be honest i started watching anime "professionally" from 16. Now i'm almost 24 but i'm still watching it. The only problem that i've watched all the good ones and it practically impossible to find decent on-going anime which would be season x of other moe/fanservice anime.

I'm almost a wizard. I'm hoping in 10-20 more years, VR will be more immersive. The plugin style (matrix style) vr will hopefully become real. Then all I need to do is design a machine that feeds me the nutrients and takes care of my shit. Also a machine that pays the rent/electricity.

I don't care about real life in the slightest. Rather be in VR than in real life.

Probably, I have a relative whose 50 something years old and likes anime, though he mostly just watches stuff he picks up on DVD. I can't really see myself stopping, as I get older don't really have any other hobbies anyway.

Also, YKK helps to ease the pain with the inevitable process of ageing.

Both places. This is why I don't give a shit regarding any kind of advances with copying consciousness, since if you were to do so before you die, you would just die and some asshole copy of you would have all the fun and get to pretend to be you in the process.

A lot of stuff can pass for iyashikei, but much of it just stops at being some sort of weak tranquilizer. YKK is the first time I actually felt a more fundamental impact.

Why should it be in any place other than both places? You think some magical link between both brains would somehow be established that defies all science just because of your feels?

You'd have two different self-aware beings. At first, they would also share the same identity. They'd probably diverge rather quickly, but depending on what they do, other people could stay fooled for longer. It could make for nice science fiction
>clones working together to maintain one identity, struggling to keep their duality secret.

I think I won't quit totally. If I do I won't suddenly start watching movies like a normalfag, that would be the worst and essentially admitting defeat.

>>135950685

The idea of clones has been explored a few times in SciFi. One I read recently has people creating clones for the day and the integrating their memories in to the original at the end of the day. Or not, if you didn't care. Clones had brightly colored skin to distinguish them from the original, but in every other way were identical.

The reason I watch anime is for escapism from my life. So the only time I'll quit anime is when my life becomes livable without needing to escape from it.

It's a win-win situation for me. Sucks to be you guys.

>>135950411
>mono no aware
Well, there you have it, an added active ingredient that sets it apart from the usual iyashikei formulations.
But it goes further than that, because YKK actually teaches mono no aware, as opposed to just exhibiting it.

You just digitalize your brain little by little. You start replacing neurons with circuits slowly, one per day or so. This way your consciousness will naturally transition to a digital state instead of the digital version being a copy of your consciousness. I just solved human mortality.

Depends how you do the transfer.

There's no one bit of your brain that makes you "you".
You can lose a couple of neurons practically anywhere and manage just fine.
When it comes down to it, "you" are basically just the Ship of Theseus.
Do the transfer gradually, replacing a little at a time, and you'd probably be fine.

I'm having an existentional crisis, but I'm 33 soon. I have a good career for years, but my life lost it's flavor. I'm still watching anime and actually reading more manga then ever in my entire life. It's not something you just abandon, if it makes you happier then if you wouldn't do it.

Tablet did it to me. I was really interested in reading mango, but on an LCD it was tiring. So I invested for a cheap but good-display tablet and it sparked a rush that continues for the past 2 years. I've been through most of my backlog and try new generes each week, it's bliss. The only think I worry, is that I'm reliant on online-manga materials. And if they run out, be removed or dissapear, I'm doomed to again live a flavour-less life.

What I've found is that your role in life will be pressured to change naturally even if you don't want it to. You're someone's daughter/son for a long time, and at some point, either society or you yourself determine it's time for you to be a "parent". But that's also a false dilemma, because you don't have to be a parent even if society wants you to be one.

Anime/manga, I've found, is a role you can outgrow. You're a consumer of anime until it gets boring/repetitive/stale, then the only source of originality is your own ability to write a story. You still consume good anime when it comes, but you also recognize that the vast majority of shows are not good, so you aren't willing to settle for less anymore. To meet your high standards, you either have to do it yourself or take the next step to go beyond it.

That's a big reason why I hate millennials and the facebook culture, so many people are willing to give up their wild ambitions because of peer pressure by normals saying it's not socially acceptable to be a chuuni when you're in your late 20's. If you're a career woman and unmarried in your 30's, your some shallow feminist slut. If you're a male, you're a loser, even if you're a medical doctor.

>Will you still like anime when you grow old?
I am old (at least in the older half of the *chan demographic). I grew up watching anime and I must say that I have retreated more and more on the side of manga over the years to find stuff I like.
Given the costs involved in Anime production studios tend to go for the "Sure Thing" model resulting in usually two scenarios. The first one being the "Tried and True" model resulting in a show I've seen 50 times before but with a new coat of paint. The second is "Adaptation of a Runaway Success From Another Medium" which means I've read it in manga form already and am several seasons ahead of anything the show would do.
Neither scenario motivates me to pick up the anime unless the production value is high or if it is an original animated show.
And this is before we get into the 'currently predominant genre discussion'.

I only love anime more as I age. 27 now and I watch nearly every airing anime now and enjoy all of them. Call it shit taste or whatever but I love coming home from work and having at least an hour or two of anime everyday to look forward to.

What?
>>
Answer for you here : I'm 35 and I still love it a lot, but I'm watching less and less anime each season (5 years ago I would watch and foolow until the end about 3/4 of the seasonal anime, now it's down to 3 at the end of the season)
I'm having a really hard time with the usually popular school settings, I'm looking for more original things Japan has to offer, like Shouwa Genroku this season (not saying its top tier, it's just an example).
But I can still appreciate shonen or teen-oriented things a lot, I'm just more demanding.
>>
>>135964457
No factual or experimental evidence exists about the nature of consciousness.
A brain has never been exactly duplicated or gradually replaced or computerized or simulated, so all of these faggots acting like they know what would happen are wasting their time.

>How do you cope with the inevitable process of aging?

But that's wrong.

>A brain has never been exactly duplicated or gradually replaced or computerized or simulated

You don't need to do any of that to obtain evidence of consciousness.

>>
>>135964608
You are not about to drag me into an argument over semantics, so I'll say this one more fucking time.
No experiments or circumstances have ever occurred which would provide insight into what would happen if a brain were cybernetized in some way.
Not even fucking once did I even question whether or not "consciousness" existed or what it even is. The existence of consciousness is not in question.
What's being talked about in this thread, and the "nature" I'm referring to, is how the replacing or simulating of brain material with computerization affects the brain's consciousness.

I sometimes imagine that the "posting everyday until you like it" anon is just some cron job running on a dusty server tucked into some closet somewhere. The flesh-and-blood /a/non who set it up died long ago from a Japanese Cold, and he set it up during his final days, so he could continue posting forever.

...well, not forever. Only until the bank account for renewing the 4chan pass runs out. Then the script breaks.

That's not what you originally said, but fine.

>how the replacing or simulating of brain material with computerization affects the brain's consciousness.

There are plenty of cases of neuroprosthetics. People have their brains "enhanced" by machinery and computers now. It's not like this is some fantasy story. This has been going on for decades. Obviously we can't fully digitize a human brain or replace it entirely with electronics yet, but to claim that we know absolutely nothing about the nature of consciousness with regards to replacing parts of the brain with computers is absurd.
>>
>>135963594
I'm like this too. I always feel bad for those who can't manage to watch more than a couple shows each season because they think the rest is shit. I don't know if I'm easily entertained or if I just really love anime, but I'm happy it's like this.
