I just realized I'm lifting for the made-up approval of anime girls.
Lift because every day is a new chance to suffer.
So many choose to sit in decadence, stuffing their faces and watching people play make believe on TV.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I choose to suffer because it's a privilege afforded to the disciplined. It's yields a state of being that few will truly know. It's the understanding that every moment is a step toward becoming the person we want to be.
I suffer so my daughter sees what a human being is capable of.
>tfw despite the fact she will never be real I still lift for her
>not lifting for this from the beginning
shake my head teebeeh family.
Girls like that don't exist IRL
I mainly aspire to be Yuuji Kazumi
But I lift for all waifus everywhere
I won't even speak to a female IRL unless it's mandatory or needed to pass an obstacle
I am literally diamonds right now.
>I will never have her
Fuck I hate my life.
Technically you're still lifting for yourself, you're just projecting yourself into an anime girl.
If that version of you believes in yourself, and wants you to become the person you want to be, believe in it.

>tfw japan sees men who work out as gay, and the qts think pretty boy twinks are best
Lifting for cosplayers is ok?
I lift just to see Makoto smile
>whines about not being stronk enough for her
>gets rekt my mommy because she overestimates herself
>sits around doing fuckall until besto gurl kills Ragyo and eats her
>only purpose was being training fodder for Ryuuko
Kill la kill yourself. Does your waifu even eat raw lemons?
Pretty good I'd say. Lifting 6 months, 5'8 150 lbs
Waifus you lift for, yes.
This is why I lift.
>having a sense superiority even though he posting at 4chan
/fit/ is one of the most sane boards on 4chan
even fucking bodybuilding.com is more autist, with all the fucking pedo mods
keep lying to yourself, you fucking lanky 5'11 acne ridden nerd
Difference between /fit/ and bb.com:
You actually see people wearing bb.com shirts in public.
>You'll never have too many beers with Misato-san, after which she gently, yet firmly pushes you down and shows you how it's done
I'll never be strong enough to lift these feels
Nothing wrong in seeking self improvement through an external source. There's seriously no difference in the end result of self improvement regardless of why you sought it.
/a/ was my first board, but I wouldn't consider my home anymore. I don't visit much anymore since I'm too busy for much anime.
>tfw loved the shit out of those two
>tfw a big dude that just wants short gf
>tfw a big dude that just wants short gf
I know that feel
When I'm on my last rep I just imagine Casca being raped and the barbell as apostles pushing down on me.
I'm trying to figure out a way to imagine food as something so I can motivate myself to EAT BIG TO GET BIG C'MON
Oh yeah. I'm genuinely surprised his trip isn't banned like siztra's.
I'm doing a full body routine. I currently do all of the big 4 every day that I lift, but I only started diddylifting a month and a half ago which is why it's relatively low, but I add 5 lbs to it each time I lift until it gets hard which it hasn't yet.
>visit the yoai board out of curiosity
>click on the Spider-Man/venom thread
>venom raping spidey is the hottest thing I've ever seen
>next day I'm doing bench and as im feeling my muscles give out I growl "parkeeeerrrr" and picture myself catching spidey and having him squirm underneath me as I force myself inside his tight spiderbutt
>finish the set but am now frightened for my sexuality
The poem is just to good lads
according to that aziz ansari book this is not true and all the girls in japan are frustrated guys for being pussies. so much so they have *government funded singles parties* i shit you not so the guys can have the 'right circumstances' to interact with women.
apparently guys over there are all too worried about the opinion of one another to break from the crowd and get laid because flirting with women makes you a "playboy" attention seeker. this is what working out contributes to (you trying to be a playboy) doesnt make you gay tho
as far as i can tell, if you go over there and actually hit on girls you can clean up (though locking one down permanently is a much tougher task)
I think the fact that a large majority of women pay to be taken out to bars by alpha males (hosts) speaks volumes about the general male culture there. I think more confident/ outgoing men would be appreciated by the female population if nothing else, maybe shunned by the men.
>that feel when no sexually active girls in my area
being stuck in perth is suffering
Kill yourself polygamous scum
well, there was one girl and we would casual bang
but she's in freedomland now
The more you go away from the city centre to suburbs the slootier the girls get, though Perth itself may be slootier than Melbourne or Sydney city for the same reason that girls get slootier here further away from the city.
"frightened for my sexuality"? are you implying that you could possibly be straight even though you self inserted into gay monster muscle rape porn during your daily routine?
the fuck m8
Some good motivation material right there.
2D girls are eternal, they don't change.
Better than lifting for a 3D oneinits which can break your heart, and consequently, your will to lift.
I have a whole folder dedicated to anime dudes in dresses.
>not improving your physical AND mental gains for you're waifu.
Not gonna make it unless you push yourself, and devote.
Not much different than lifting for celebs or otherwordly-tier girls you'll never meet, impress nor fuck.
Did you make that folder on windows 7 in 20010 and take the screenshot in 8 or 10 today?
The date is from before windows 8 existed but it doesn't look like its a screenshot from windows 7.
If you're going to lift for anyone, it better be for the fucking king of the pirates.
Why would I watch/read something thats mostly filler?
>TFW you're waifu is from an obscure source and normalfags can't defile her
I've heard that a lot of people don't like new world? But I just caught up as well, but I didn't notice anything bad about it. Plus, Trafalgar.
There are a lot of blogs out there that tell you which fillers are good and which fillers are skippable, exactly because it's so long. You can just google how to watch one piece, or something. I recommend it. The funimation dub is pretty great.
what is that cartoon girl doing?
It looks like it has a mental breakdown and at the and it holds back puke in her mouth.
Is this supposed to be a model of women's hysterical behaviour? If it is, it's shitty and unreal.
Death Note, Full Metal Alchemist, FLCL, Steins;Gate, Toradora. They're all pretty standard entry level series that virtually anyone who watches anime has seen, regardless of their fav genre.
One Punch Meme is alright for an entry level but it's way funnier if you've watched a lot of generic shounen anime, which is what they're parodying.
I lift for her
I use to be like you. Then I started watching some shows that will never be dubbed. Then I developed a taste for subs and rewatched a few of my favourite series subbed and realised /a/ was right and dubs suck.
Samurai flamenco will never be dubbed
I've been watching anime for 15 years. I've watched so many subbed anime that I'm embarrassed about it. This isn't 1989 anymore. The people who dub the shows actually give a shit now, so mostly, they're pretty good.
Its definetely getting better. I think you are always better off watching something in its source language though. I make an exception for very odd cases where the director or development team prefer the dub like Cowboy Bebop or Panty and Stocking
Normally I'd say yes, but sometimes I do prefer the dub, especially where female voices are concerned. And funimation has a good track record with dubs (as per my experience).
You still here?
Oh well if not, here's for the anons
>Then Shonen or SoL/Harem stuff
>Then do what you like
>THEN go for the subversion series like Evvanglion/TTGL/KLK/OPM
I want a body like this
Shame it's not entirely natty
Parts 1-3 has some GOAT motivation for fitness
>Does your waifu even eat raw lemons?
Best girl eats raw eggs
It actually helped, the 1 or 2 hours I spent daily watching anime has since been poured into lifting, and when I start to read something I try to finish it in one sitting thus causing me several sleepless nights. In the end it's still all about discipline but yeah, after I'm done with my thesis next month I'll hop right back into anime and video games. Cocoon mode I guess?
You're in the squat rack and this girl taps you on the ass. How do you proceed?
Except that it is not about voice actors but about what you can and can't translate. With subtitles and some of experience in Japanese culture and anime you can understand a lot more than with a dub making up things so they can lip sync.
That's depends entirely on the anime. I mean, yeah, of course I've noticed that too, but a good dub usually does it's best to translate the feel and tone of a scene, it's not perfect, but unless the anime is really into that heavy-handed flowering dialog then it's not so bad as to impede on the enjoyment of the show.
>a dub making up things so they can lip sync
earlier, definitely, but now it's easier to just cut the footage. I don't think it's that much of a problem anymore.
One thing I noticed in particular is about how Japanese express worry for another character, you know: they look at him and say his name (last name too sometimes), nothing else usually. We do not do this and thus can't just translate saying their name because it would look weird. In dub they just replace this part with some random short sentence. Also can't cut the whole part because its crucial to the story.
This nigga knows.
Yeah, I know what you mean. I also get the feeling that in dubs they say shit when there's supposed to be silence. That's what bugs me about dubs the most- if you have experience in watching both, you start getting the impression that they dumb down the dubs.
For example, I don't remember what it was exactly, but there was a scene where a character was looking at something and it was obvious that he was looking at the thing and had an interest in it and then he said "that seems important"- or something. There are hundreds of these tiny instances and they're said when you can't see the speaker's mouth. That kind of thing only happens in dubs. Like, the dubbers assume that either people watching are too stupid to get it with-out auditory confirmation, or they think they need to bridge a 13 second silence.
I can usually ignore it, but sometimes it's just so obvious that it just takes me out of it.
>she will never tease you about being a pervert while spooning with you
It fucking hurts bros.
You think that's bad? Imagine a literary critic watching anime and every time the characters start to explain the 100th plot device/mechanism, the critic tries to ignore the voices in his head saying
>it would have been better if implied.
>baww troubled past with no relevance to the story
Yet for some reason this critic is trying to find those feelings of wonder while watching anime as a kid.
You don't need to be a literary critic, you just need a rudimentary grasp of storytelling.
>Yet for some reason this critic is trying to find those feelings of wonder while watching anime as a kid.
>those feelings of wonder
Isn't that what we all want? Our whole lives are just us trying to recreate good memories.
Part 5's the weakest part and going by your rankings I'm guessing you won't care for Part 6, but if you can power though those I'll bet you'll love Part 7.
>she will never be the fascist leader you know her as until the doors close behind her
>she will never try to keep her composure but clearly sperg out internally as she crawls into bed with you
>her face will never turn bright red as your hands bump while you're asleep
>she will never spill her spaghetti whenever you hug her from behind
>you will never help her recover from the PTSD her mom gave her
It fucking hurts.
Fuck you people, Part 4 is easily the best part, other than some slightly dodgy art at the beginning and a couple pointless chapters.
I don't think it's even possible to dislike Part 6, it's the most Bizarre by far
Not even best Nep step it the fuck up.
I need to become strong enough to protect my waifu.
I lift for Pochaco, so that one day she will lick ice cream of my abs and then sit on my face.
I need to become strong enough to bring her back home.
feel you bros
I'm 6'1, gf is 5'0. its cute as fuck and everybody compliments you in public saying how "cute they are together".
>tfw gf tired from work, lift her up easily and put her in a chair for food
>tfw she can tackle you into bed full force and its adorable
you'll get one, brahs
It's not exactly that working out is gay. It's that too much of the masculine traits goes too far: big bulging muscles, a rough demeanor, gruff attitude and voice, big facial hair, etc. basically hypermasculinity is the sort of thing that only men appreciate.
The idea that gay men would be into feminine men is a weird and foreign idea to them. "If a man were into femininity, they'd be into women," is the idea.
There was actually an element of samurai culture where gayness would be laudable, because it meant they were so strong and manly that a woman was considered insufficiently strong to contain their fucking. It's actually similar to some attitudes in ancient Greek society.
A lot of Westerners are confused by YAOI because it tends to have slender beautiful boys; they don't understand that YAOI in Japan is considered a product almost exclusively for women.
>tfw live in Texas
>tfw all the women around here are 6' hambeasts with dyed hair and daddy issues
>tfw they get mad at you when you approach them
>tfw you're gay if you're single
I doubt it bro.
>the only nearby college is UNT
Anon, this is where the hambeasts spawn from. My last hope of meeting women was trounced by this place. It's fucking awful.
At this stage, I just want to shoot myself.
Honestly, I'm too much of a coward, but goddamn man, what am I supposed to do? I'm faced with two options:
Either try to hook up with one of these hambeasts, and give up my freedom (out of the question) or continue being single, and miserable, despite all efforts to enjoy the single life. I mean jesus, is it too much to just want a qt I can figure out life with?
Literally the reason I started liftingg a few years ago. Then i stopped because i got a job where I could sit around and drink and get high all day at work. Then I started again last year in october, then I broke my thumb and lost motivation while that was healing. Started again a couple months ago, not fucking stopping this time come hell or high water.
That's some great incentive to leave humanity behind breh.
Add it to the list with catgirls and aliums, anon
Because there's gonna be a payoff. Oda said in an interview that the one piece isn't going to be some "the adventure was the treasure" thing, but an actual reward. Fuck yeah. That was a load off my chest, when I read it.
Don't listen to everyone, you want normie action/funny anime. Samurai Champloo is the way to go.
Great OST, nice animation, not full of little girls but still has a main qt, it's all around great
