Dude I think he's trolling, penguin translations are usually regarded as the worst ones on /lit
>>
>>7645165

I know penguin is considered worst but I thought this would be an exception.

>waifu best girl 10/10
No. She's worst off than Satou in a sense, and despicable too.
>>
>>7640335
maybe just listen to the dismemberment plan and get drunk like every other loner in their twenties

then read some exciting books instead of wallowing in pseudo-deep misery

the protector by larry niven
>>7640499
the book is not about this. it's about a man reflecting on the end of his life. common misconception that you would understand if you didnt flick past the forward.

>>7640806
not about loneliness. the existential search for meaning is completely unrelated.

>>7642890
>>7647030
this. she's one of those nutjobs who try to fix someone else with all the shit they learnt from a psychologist because it didnt work on them. literally a nutjob chanting memes. only its a horrible codependent relationship because shes this borderline pd cunt willing to spread her legs for this complete whackjob schizophrenic obsessed with conspiracies. autist tier anime.

>>7642890
This actually kinda happened to me.

>2012
>lonely depressed college student
>pretty much just played league of legends 8 hours a day when out of class
>This 10/10 asian girl girl I play LoL with over the internet randomly showed up to my dorm one day unannounced
>her high school sweetheart went to the same school as me so she decided to drop by I guess
>We spend the whole day hanging out
>over the next few weeks she would randomly drive an hour to my school to just hang out with me, one on one
>she brings me to parties, I start to smoke weed and drink booze for the first time
>I start to become more social, stop being a total neet
>we get emotionally close, we talk about depression and other personal issues we both have
>This whole time I've only seen her boyfriend once or twice briefly, we're just friends
>I start to develop crush but know it will never because of her boyfriend situation, decide not to do anything about it and just enjoy the companionship
>she gets married to said boyfriend, moves 5 states away
>haven't seen or heard from her since

At the time I was just kind of bewildered that real life turned into Welcome the NHK. The first few months after she left were kinda rough, but I got over it. On the plus side her presence allowed me to grow out of my nerdy, naive socially inept high schooler phase into a more normalized stoner guy and I have my own partner now
