Man I fucking love god rays.
I was visiting a friend and we went out for breakfast at like six in the morning, just after dawn.
He lives a couple hundred meters from one of those swamp/lake things and the sun rays were ridiculous. Cool and calming. Makes me want to live near a swamplake.

Eh, it's just a poor exposure, a photo by a non-photog for the purposes of making a painting. If I had to take a wild guess, it was probably shot on a compact camera, and mid-aftenoonish, when the best light is usually early morning/sunset.

Lots of artists do similar things for studies, I've done them in painting class.

Rainy and gray doesn't preclude making good photos.
>>110419532
The dynamic range of the camera is low/mid-day light tends towards very dark shadows and bright highlights beyond the range of most cameras anyways, so the brightest things in the photo get blown out and sometimes the darkest things will just get crushed to black.

There's quite a lot of burtalism in Britian. It's always fascinated me and I find some of buildings to be quite attractive. I even wrote a protest letter to my MP when a local tower block was going to be demolished. I really wish a studio would make an anime with a brutalist estate setting, a lot of it does exist in Japan. WIXOSS nearly did. I think it could create a great atmosphere with stark weathered concrete, cold glass and hard steel.

>>110421561
It also adds to the realism of the show.

And Japan is a relatively small country, so using real life locations means 90% of your audience can actually go check the place out, which is always a good thing for promoting tourism, which is all smaller towns have going for them.

While that definitely started the shit storm off with a bang the main reason Detroit is like how it is today is because it's citizens and the government refuse to step up and fix it.

Some Japanese tourists left a K-ON poster or something at the cafe, and the owners thought it was amusing enough to put it up.
>>
>>110424561
It was kinda cheating, but also made sort of plausible in that the owner was a retired, well-off and reclusive side character. To create a reproduction might not be outside his means if he was fond of the design.

I once was lurking /lit/ and I came upon a thread that was some Anon basically storytiming scans of a rare English translated book he'd found. It was the account of a Japanese ambassador to America taking a tour of the country, starting with San Francisco. The whole thing was written by an aide to the Japanese ambassador and was intended to be published in Japan, so it's basically explaining a lot of American culture from the perspective of Japanese culture. Shit was fascinating.

The whole trip cost around $5~$6K including airfare.

Some tips just for you anon:
>Rubbish bins, and public toilets are almost nowhere to be seen. Use convenience stores for toilets and rubbish bins are always next to vending machines.
>You can only withdraw money with gaijin cards from postoffice and 7-11 ATMs.
>Leave Akihabara and Shibuya for the last day, or you'll be carry a load of crap with you for the whole trip.
>Go to Tsukiji for breakfast. Most authentic sushi you'll ever get.
>Always, ALWAYS pick up those free maps they give to tourists. Google maps may not be entirely accurate. Especially outside of city-centers.
>The Tokyo Subway app is pointless because it doesn't take the above-ground trains into account.

Most vending machines only have bottle/can recycling bins next to them. Actual "garbage" bins are rare outside because Japanese generally aren't always stuffing their faces with food on the go, so they rarely have a reason to be holding trash outsides their homes or offices.

Saying it's the same as grammar naziing is quite the stretch. If someone is getting mad at something topical, its not the same as someone getting mad at grammatical mistakes.

I just think it's ironic that you have people worrying about board quality going "oh no not the politics", but then you have the same people likely shitposting in a waifu thread moments later.

Many convenience stores have actual garbage bins outside of them, even so you're a stupid foreigner when you're in Japan so you'll get away with throwing garbage in the recycle bins.

No, that's not why. The reason there are no public trash cans in Japan is because a couple years ago there was a scare where somebody put some sort of poison gas bomb in one of them in Tokyo and the whole country was rid of them after that because of knee jerk politics.

There is no form of government that works as intended, because corruption happens.

Whether it is wrong fundamentally has yet to be proven, what has been proven is that a minority will consistently fuck things over for everybody every time. There have been no truly socialistic governments, just like there have been no truly capitalistic governments.

Generalizing either one is a waste of time. Rather than worrying about capitalist vs socialist, people should be trying to figure out a way to drive the corrupt old men out of power. It doesn't matter what government you have until you can do that much.

All these pictures ever do to me is remind me that I never walked on these places and that my life was boring as hell.

As weeaboo as it may sound, it hurts my soul that I'll never walk in these as a highschool student either hoping his life could be more entertaining or be as normal as aliens and demons keep popping out of nowhere. On the other hand, they also keep me motivated for some reason. Like a goal I keep holding on to but know would never achieve.

Wait. You can save up and go there for a brief moment just to savor the sense of compleation you'll experience when being at the same place your favorite characters occupied in 2D. It brings a whole new level to watching, when you can actually yell to yourself "I've been there!" when a new series shows some of the mainstream locations. I have this constantly since my first 2008 and my 2014 trips. Literally every Tokyo/Kyoto/Osaka setting or "school trip to historic places" like Himeji/Miyajima give me a kick of energy lasting weeks.

Pretty much this shit.

Hit like Shinjuku, Shibuya, Tokyo stations, and some other points in Tokyo and you'll be seeing them in anime all over the place.

The only problem is that the people who try and do drive the "corrupt old men" out of power do not want to be driven out themselves. The cycle will always repeat itself. So no matter how hard you try, the same result will inevitably remain; a seesaw between noble and corrupt.

No matter what form of government or economic policy you support, there is always a way to corrupt it. And it will be corrupted eventually.
>>
>>110436270
Yeah I guess that's what keeps me motivated but what I' was trying to say was, uhh. Don't you want to feel how it felt to fall inlove for the first time again? My high school wasn't particularly bad, but it wasn't anything spectacular either. It's probably just bias given to me by the shows I watch but I feel like it would've been more interesting, wait no.

I guess what I'm saying is at least I want to experience what it feels to grow up there. Sure I can go there next week or next month but I'll never really understand how it feels to walk awkwardly with someone you like home.

Well, fantasizing about going back and experiencing things all over again aside, living in japan and going to school there would not change a thing in your life. It could actually be worse, due to how japanese educational system works, how much institutionalised it is and how much pressure you would feel from parents and society itself to "fit in". Western world has a huge advantage when it comes to how freely people can pick from the opening possibilities, rather than be forced into traditional roles and over-the-top family expectations. That's why anime depictures a fantasy-like school life, that everyone would love to have yet failed to achieve due to various reasons. It's not how it would go in real life.

In other words - what you, or I, or most of us have left, is just going there and be a witness to cute things happening to other people, or just adding a small emotional brick of "hell yeah, I've been there" to your future animu watching experience. That's a lot in fact.

Reminds me of this building in Osaka where they had this really stupid idea of making you take an elevator up something like 43 floors then hop on an escalator between the two buildings that goes up to the 45th.
