Back in my day shitty threads like this got sage'd.
It was a fucking
joke.Don't bully so hard.
I laugh my sides off in your general direction. If anything YOU'RE the newfag here.
>replying to tripfags in any capacity for any reason at all ever
But he's right. If you newshits didn't completely run this board today, you'd be getting anally annihilated more than this.
Back in my day, Ranma fanfic writers actually thought a bonbori referred to Shampoo's weapon.
A girl falls in love with a boy.
Unable to confess, she stalks the man in order to get his phone number. Never minding the strange area code, she immediately calls him, and is overjoyed to find out that he has a crush on her as well.
But, the next day, when she recounts the previous day's confessions to the man, he only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, she finds out that the man she called is not the same man she fell in love with. In fact, he doesn't exist in this universe at all. He is the man's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of his crush.
Hijinks ensue as she strikes up a deal with the man's student to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip her with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves in exchange for her dead sister's diary. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.
A Canadian girl falls in love with Japan.
Unable to confess, she is gifted by a deus ex machina with Japan's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, she immediately calls the country, and is overjoyed to find out that Nihon has a crush on her as well.
But, the next day, when she recounts the previous day's confessions to Japan, she gets no response because Japan is a country, not a person. After some investigation, she finds out that the nation she called is not the same nation she fell in love with. In fact, this Japan doesn't exist in her universe at all. This Nihon is the alternate universe counterpart of her crush, who has fallen in love with her AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of his crush.
After finding out, she slammed her fist into ther palm and said, "SOU NAN DES KARR." Hijinks ensue as they strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip each other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of WEEABOO.
>quickly realize it's Sketchbook kate
>skim text for SO NON DES KARRR
Come to think of it is that really what they were called, though? "viral" didn't exist in common vernacular in late 90s either I don't think.
I think they were called crazes, or trends. Like you'd see news reports about the Dancing Baby craze. I don't recall how people described Hamsterdance though.. I guess another craze. I was in like 6th grade when it came out and some kid went and had half the computer lab open it at once. Quite noisy.
>when the fuck is this "newfags used to lurk" meme gonna end
When I got here for the first time, about november 2003 (the second time is easier to remember: same year December 24th) I didn't really understood how 4chan worked, much less the memes going around at the time. But I did get that I shouldn't post because of that.
I returned in mid 2004 and been here ever since. I lurked for months, barely posting images until I trully understood what this was.
>I think they were called crazes, or trends.
Not the ones specifically found over the Internet, though. Those words referred to any craze inside or outside the Internet.
The entire reason behind lurking was to avoid being ridiculed and shat on by other anons for not understanding how things worked around here. Once the shitposting reached critical mass and newfags stopped being afraid of getting called out and embarrassed, lurking was no longer as important as it was before.
That's a long time ago because moeshit was already an established term in 2007 (when TTGL and Lucky Star were airing). It probably predates 07 but I can't really remember and the archive is being stupid.
Like I said, it was just a joke qt3.14. I remember fondly VCRs, casette tapes, etc. There are probably people on this board right now who probably don't even know what a floppy disc was.
I said when it was considered good, not necessarily good. Back when good things did come from /b/ rather than it being a complete shithole like it's been for years now.
I'm still mad. I will always be mad.
>It probably predates 07
I saw it mentioned in "Sensei no Ojikan", which aired back in 2004.
Back in my day we had /l/ and /a/ and /g/ were full of loli loving men. If some old hag wanted us she would have needed to rape us.
Ironic shitposting basically started on /jp/ (which also coined the term shitposter to begin with, along with crossboarder), yet somehow it's spread everywhere now.
Makes perfect sense really that /jp/ would want to kill the rest of site to spite moot.
>Shit nigga you old. I wasn't even on /b/ back then.
I was on /b/ back in 2004.
Ostensibly because it's full of porn. Only learned about its other activities 3 years later in 2009, at the height of Boxxy shitposting.
>Did it have the same meaning as in applied to the whole show or was it character specific or maybe something else?
The guy who said it in Sensei no Ojikan was the otaku character, so yes, "moe(shit)" carried the same meaning as it does now.
The funny thing is that his classmates were wondering if the word was even Japanese.
It wasn't really big a buzzword until Lucky Star though. Even then I think it wasn't until K-on that it started to become ubiquitous, albeit that's really as a backlash from butthurt edgy kids/manimefags because in actuality Lucky Star and K-on were raging popular and fucking swept across 4chan.
>It wasn't really big a buzzword until Lucky Star though.
For westerners and casualshits.
Moe was all the rage among otaku (as in real otaku, not this "western otaku" nonsense).
>Even then I think it wasn't until K-on that it started to become ubiquitous
Again, for westerners.
There was no "shit" suffix. I was talking about "moe" as a concept and slag being popular even back in 2004.
The anti-moe people did call the moeshitters as "moepigs" though.
It's always ruined forever. Every fucking time there's a change it's "ruined forever".
Back in my day we didn't have 4chan. We had to browse Geocities sites and Anime Turnpike to get out information and anime/manga pics. You had to use mIRC if you wanted to keep up with the scanlations, and even those scanlations were retarded guesses at best, like the Ranma one.
With that said, webrings are the earliest form of Internet cancer.
>and even those scanlations were retarded guesses at best, like the Ranma one.
It's hilarious to people who know Japanese. The funny thing is back in the day if you tried to correct them about it, they'll just block your email as spam.
The cool kids swapped ripped VHS tapes in meetups too.
Don't forget when getting anime online had just become a thing it was all in 4:3 at like 320x200 or some weird shit resolution not terribly bigger than that, all with the lemon yellow subs. We were happy to have anything at all even if it was many years old in Japan already.
Back in my day, I'd ITT and blogshit the hell out of threads like these.
I still can't bear to part with this place.
Or rather 320x240. Damn it's been a while since I even thought about that size. For some reason it seemed adequate at the time, probably because monitors were commonly at like 640x480, or 1024x768.
Fuck you guys, I was just about to hit the bed now I have to turn every single fucking light in the house on because my pussy ass can't take these JUST
Anon, it's okay. I'm here with you! Just remember all us cute girls and you won't have to be afraid.
Good Lord, there's a bit of nostalgia. Did you ever
search for 3D on 89.com too?
I've got a question for the true oldfags here. What was it like getting your hands on any doujinshi? Was that even possible back then?
>We'll be streaming Blu-Ray quality video in high speed Internet by the next decade.
And people are going to complain it's all crap, while torrenting lousily made 8K -> 1080p transcodes.
I don't consider myself an oldfag as I have been browsing 4chan since late 2009/early 2010 so I missed a lot of great things on this board such as watching Death Note, Code Geass, TTGL and other things while it aired along with /a/.
The other day I saw a bunch of anons complaining that a certain anime was taking too long to be released, when I started to watch anime (again, not an oldfag) the earliest you could expect a release of your thursday or friday show was 6 to 12 hours, though most of the time subs were out the next day. Crunchyroll, funi or daisuki (this one didn't even exist back then) wasn't that big back then so not every show was subbed by them. I remember downloading HorribleSubs CR rips for The World God Only Knows in late 2010 so those guys were around back then.
I remember I could read and fap to good doujins in Fakku without paying or subscribing to shit.
I was part of the 10bit shitposting mainly because my computer was so shit I needed hardware acceleration to watch 1080p 8bit stuff, my computer couldn't handle 720p+ 10bit anime, I had to upgrade thanks to 10bit.
Reddit wasn't the boogieman, it was Gaia. People lurked more, there was less crossboarders, and if there was they didn't make it as obvious. Each board had their own memes, not like today where you see baneposting everywhere.
Also for some reason people made more original content back then, original images for jokes I mean
If they didn't go kaput after PSG and made more original stuff they possibly still would be a top tier, although it's hard to say really. TTGL gained them a lot of mileage right when they were starting to fade from the spotlight.
It's weird they're still around but adapt little piddly stuff and Trigger has struck off on its own odd somewhat half-assed direction.
I was utterly confused. I did not understand the idea behind doujin, or why Shampoo was getting screwed by several men. Did Rumiko Takahashi draw/allow it? Why? I started to grasp the idea by the 1996 that people drew this kind of porn to indulge themselves.
Back in my day we didnt have faggots like this spamming every trap thread and screaming at mods to delete it.
How is that shitty one even the slightest bit frightening?
Thanks for satisfying my curiosity!
I can remember my first anime induced boner. It was while watching Ranma, I think it was a certain scene where Ranma became a woman in the bath and you could see her nipples.
Another time was when I was up late at night watching TV, and there was this channel with some dude showing Dragon Ball Z porn, which I think was fanart sent by fans. I remember looking at Buu getting his dick sucked by Android 18, Goku fucking ChiChi. Oh and I also had an erection when Cell absorbed 18. Good times.
I personally just gave up and just ordered the books myself. Those took nearly 2 months to arrive to my backwater tiny town in Bumfuck, Nowhere.
$40 dollars for a lousy 2 episode VHS...
I have a crazy gunpla collection and thousands in garage kits, yet I never talk to /m/ because they seem to just hate everything and some autist shits on the gunpla threads there all day with mods doing nothing. I don't know what that guy's problem is, /m/ always had gunpla threads and simply shared them with /toy/.
Or rather I used /m/ a bit like, 5+ years ago, and it was a very, very chill place that felt more like a forum because it was so fucking slow. But I didn't mind, because people knew their shit and could give interesting replies.
Back in my day Anime was born
Now get off my fucking lawn
We can only imagine. But unless we're Nostradamus or in the tech industry, our predictions will be hilarious in hindsight.
One thing that I'll definitely miss are high resolution reeditions of old anime. With everything being done digitally, I guess the original quality is final. So it probably won't make much difference if one watches a show when it came out or decades later.
Don't (You) fucking tell me what to do.
>back in the day
Try using RealPlayer, sonny boy. It's the VLC of its day.
Just wait a decade or even a few years and you'd have a fresh batch of hilarity in hindsight.
Back in my day,
all anons secretly loved one another and this board.
There are posts back in the day that if you post now, people will redirect you back to Reddit.
Back in my day we separated episodes by multiple RAR files that you can't put back together unless you get all the parts and everything you downloaded isn't corrupted.
Back in the day, this was the page for the most viewed YouTube hits.
Basically DEEP and GAR back then kind of cover the "manime" type sentiment today. Only gar was kind of our own thing while manime sounds like what some insecure faggot would come up with.
If those faggets just didn't rally and shit back at the day with their Guy Fawkes mask then we wouldn't have so much edgy faggets in the site.
I don't think /b/ is the blame, Blame Scientology.
