Banners and ads seem to drive it home pretty fine. You can go wherever you want here but are always reminded of what the site is founded for and caters to.
Anyone just discovering 4chan and reading up on it sees moot made it for anime discussion and sold it to a Japanese guy to bring it back to its roots in his words. Thus it stands to reason that you will find anime has a wide influence on the site. It is not all-dominating otherwise other topical boards wouldn't exist, but you're just plain blind/braindead if you have seen/learned these things and think the place isn't anime-leaning.
To say otherwise about 4chan's origin and focus is just willful ignorance, albeit a lot of people do precisely that.
You don't. It hasn't been an anime site in over a decade.
All I know is that the thread yesterday with the weeb supremacists from /a/ arguing with the neonazis from /pol/ about which one was more of a normalfag and the meaning of the word 'normie' was comedy gold.
That doesn't prove his point at all. The only vague connection would be that it was inspired by Japanese sites. Just because it took inspiration from Japanese sites does not mean it's an anime website. Neither Futaba, 2ch, Ayashii, or any of those other places were focused around anime. Look at the Ayashii one for example. That sounds like just a general proto-/b/ site. Can't really comment on that site as I've never been there, but nothing hints at it being about anime.
So, sorry to be the one to bring ya bad news, slick, but 4chan never was an anime site to begin with. Anime was part of it, yes, and it was inspired by Japanese sites, but that doesn't make it a weeb site at all. Never was, and likely never will be. There are imageboards out there which are focused around anime which you may want to find, but 4chan ain't it.
4chan hasn't been an anime website since 2005 when edgy 14 year olds that had nothing to do with anime invaded. Today the top 3 boards on the site, /b/, /v/ and /pol/ have nothing to do with anime.
rule 3: keep /pol/ in /pol/ (no idea why they removed that line because the mods still enforce it).
a shit board that nobody likes. It keeps out the underageb& reddit teens.
A board that is genuinely liked by the mods, Hiro, and a majority of the 18+ userbase.
>A board that is genuinely liked by the mods, Hiro, and a majority of the 18+ userbase.
- Mods liking /a/? How do you know what boards they like?
- qa/ is Hiros favourite board.
- "a majority of the 18+ userbase" liking /a/? Source on that?
Seriously, fuck off. Go back to your autistic circlejerk on cripplechan.
Wrong. Only autistic people can't handle an anime reaction image.
>How do you know what boards they like?
They are quite open about it. This is why only /a/ received a special treat for New Year's eve.
>/qa/ is Hiros favourite board
Only because he's clueless, even though he's the former admin of 2ch.
>Source on that?
/a/ represents pre-2011 4chan, and they don't throw an autistic fit every time they bump into anime.
Yes, this is currently reddit 2.0
And we need to push out the reddit
And since /a/ is the only board left which resembles its past all other non anime related boards should be deleted
That way it will be like what 4chan was pre 2010
Why would you use kek instead of lel? Think about it. It doesn't mean anything, its just the modification of the actual acronym lol. You don't even know why you use it. Somewhere, sometime you saw a few people post it and hopped right on board. Too mainstream for lol right? Thats so old, its meaning makes sense but you dont feel comfortable expressing your approval of things on the internet with the common old "lol" thats been around for so long. You'll man up and use the purposely misspelled version with no discernible humor or purpose besides making you look like a complete idiot while you maintain the false concept that other people find it amusing or appropriate and using purposely misspelled words shows the world that youre not afraid of anything and are part of some grand inside joke that no one finds funny. Theres a lot going through your head, but you realize I am right. You will try though, to get the best of this exchange. What are you going to go for? Newfag? Summer? oh damn there are so many options to choose from. An implication that I'm underage perhaps? Thats always fresh. Maybe you'll just shut down. I think you should go with something about butthurt or being mad or even comment on the length of the unproportionally long comment that so swiftly brought to your attention that you are a faggot that tries oh so hard to fit in. Careful though, is this even oc? Tsk tsk hard to say dont want to get embarrassed anon. I'm sure you could find some grammar or spelling errors as a last resort. I cant wait, Its always fun playing insult roulette
You don't, people like you managed to be worse the the people who come here to complain about anime.
