Do you hide your /jp/ power level when you're in public or when you're with your friends?
When somebody asks you what your favorite 2hu is or what you know about Japanese culture or what Kancolle is all about do you try to disguise the fact that you know what they're talking about or do you reveal your power level there to the person who asked?
I had a friend when I was little. One day, we were about 12, we were walking home from the store. We found an old porno movie cover (VHS) on the ground. We took it to his house in his basement and looked it at. We both started getting hard. Then I started to rub myself. He asked if he could touch himself and I said yes.
Every day we would jerk off looking at that, and one day I asked him if he would want to take turns doing it to each other.
He sat down, with his pants off looking at the cover. he was uncut, and it was very fun to play with his cock. He made little moans, and he was loving it. I wanted to suck on his cock so bad, but I didn't want to do it, and not receive it.
He came, and thanked me so much, and when it was my turn he started to really get into it, and jerked me off nice and slow, and all of a sudden he started to suck me off.
We sucked each others cock almost everyday.
I have some friends but sadly none of them likes or care about 2hu at all and most of them just like normie anime stuff.
So I have none to talk about 2hu or play 2hu games at all...feels sad sometimes.
>People asking me things
What the fuck are you even talking about you idiot
Not even close, you queer. Social status is a real thing, a description of your social standing in society, whereas pretending to be a friendless virgin loser on the J is just a pastime for us old-timers who want to rile up the teenbros.
>I doubt there's anyone who would understand my interests anyway
>I'm fine by myself
I introduced a friend to touhou three months ago and now he's making the soundtrack to a rhythm game for people in Japan!
>what your favorite 2hu
Come on m8, they don't even know what the fuck is a 2hu.
At least in where I stay, there are people that build plamo and gundumb fans so I can still talk about unicorn and thunderbolt with them as they are pretty normal.
I don't like people who like the things that I like because they have differing opinions about it and those opinions are wrong. So I don't talk to people about stuff I'm into, nor seek them out.
I have decoy hobbies to talk about with to typical people
Like cars, cooking, fashion, and hiking.
Never talk about /jp/ hobbies except when on /jp/. No real reason to.
Someone somehow mentions touhou, yeah I'll talk about it.
I don't really have any friends in real life because I don't see the point of interacting with other people offline unless they're very attractive and it's for a date or something. Too bad I got married, just downhill from here
Nice /v/ thread. Surely this will not ruin the board.
Patchouli, and overall once you hit stage 3 gimmicks will start showing up since the whole point of spell cards is expressing the character through their own thing but most of the time stage 1 and 2 bosses are so pathetic they aren't very good at expressing themselves, an exception is Parsee.
I only hide my powerlevel around strangers! Stuff like touhou, 2d, /jp/ and lolis are things I slowly reveal over time to random people online to see how close I can get before they become creeped out.
After a decade that leaves 2 people.
I have talked to six people about touhou in real life.
My brother who occasionally talks to me about importing stuff because of my touhou stuff.
My sister who is making a drawing of Yukari for me as a gift.
My step-brother who watched me play PCB Phantasm once.
A friend who currently lives on a different continent.
Another friend who has very weeb interests and blows a gasket whenever I say 'weeb'. He played EoSD on Easy for a bit.
And a random secondary that I met at a convention.
Fuck that, real life stuff almost always turns to some other bullshit and gets tainted when people know eachother.
The best conversation I had was with some old woman at a bus stop who started talking to me and we ended up talking about our troubles. Then we wished eachother well and never saw eachother again and never exchanged names. I hope her husband is doing ok, he had some health issue relating to hormone levels, and she listened to me talking about my anxiety. I couldnt tal freely if we knew eachoter.
And that conversation is why I treasure not knowing anyone on /jp/, the fact you may be some cunt I hate irl, or the fact you could be dead without me knowing. It makes our conversations all the more special becuase I enjoy my time with you, without even knowing who you are.
It goes without saying, tripfags are cancer who defile the beauty of this. Fuck tripfags.
>I've never hid it working in finance and admitted I prefer 2D girls to coworkers, no one cares, get over yourselves
Different societies/cultures, etc. For example if you admitted liking loli in Japan people would think you were strange. In the UK you would probably be set on fire or arrested.
I used to display my otaku power level with unashamed pride to fellow otaku and non-otaku alike. Now I'm not nearly as passionate about showing off anymore. If you know, you know. If you don't, you don't.
I'm not often in public and when I am I prefer to not talk more than I need to.
I don't know how not talking about stuff I like is hiding it but I'm not running around in embarrassing T-shirts if that's what you mean. Nobody would ask me shit about 東方. And me answering would depend on the person.
Also wouldn't the point of friends be that they share the same interests? At leas that's what I would want from friends.
Absolute kuso thread. Attracting all the normalfags.
Absolutely not. Acting like it's something to be ashamed of is exactly why people treat you like it's something to be ashamed of. I have no qualms about talking about my interests. No one gives a shit. Someone cracks a joke from time to time, but if you can laugh it off, it ends there. Don't understand hiding one's power level.
Yes, I hide my power level.
The only thing I ever let on to anyone is that I told my mom if I could visit any country in the world, it would be Japan.
Which by itself is very inconspicuous, many normal people want to visit Japan.
