Hiroshima has ruled that users are free to post and participate in on-board meta threads. This is the /a/ meta thread. Discuss the direction of the moderation and whether or not you agree with it below, rather than having talks interrupted by faggots from /qa/ that don't even post here.
If DJT is banned from /a/, can it at least not going to a racist shitposting board? I know that DJT had a few shitposters that always belonged there instead of here, but that's not DJT's fault. It would be better on /qa/ or on a hpothetical /ag/ japanese/asian media generals board.
No, /int/ is your purgatory until you can fully atone for your sins
/a-random/ would be a better idea. Even though making new boards is totally a bad idea.
Not them, but I do sometimes. Just thinking about all you Anons.
By moving DJT to /int/ you basically killed our community and all the efforts we've built. /int/ is no place for us, we are a community which originally spawned from our shared interest through Japanese anime & manga culture, learning the language through such medium as a way to further consume and potentially translate / scanlate said contents.
/int/ is basically lite-/pol/, or as if /pol/ and facebook had made a child, with 3dpd discussions all day long, 3dpd reaction images and constant and extremely low and quality posting/shitposting. Few DJT threads who have been made over there so far were nothing but shitposting, harassment from /int/ posters and real life blogging. Our thread absolutely has no place over there. You would not move the Buyfag general or the Sadpanda thread over /int/, similarly, DJT should not have been moved there.
DJT was made in the spirit of sharing Japanese learning methods with fellow /a/nons. I genuinely would not have come as far without DJT and while it might not appear as such to most of you people reading me, tremendous efforts went into our general and our website. Many /a/nons have given a lot of their time and effort to build what we had and help others in trouble. I can keep a straight face and seriously say that DJT is, was, definitely the best place on the internet to get started on learning Japanese from the perspective of someone having Japanese anime & manga culture as main hobby.
Killing our community without a word and without trying to discuss problems at hand with us was in my opinion irresponsible. I am aware that DJT has its problems but the same could be said about anywhere else on 4chan. I would even go as far as saying how hypocrite the decision was considering how no matter the amount of reports were made towards shitposters, no deletions or bans were ever given. I beg you to reconsider your choice and think of a better solution for the future of DJT and the future of /a/non Japanese learners.

No, fuck you, we did this in September and it was the worst shitposting event in years. Fuck off and kill yourself.
I've never really been in DJT at all, but I still feel bad for them, especially after reading posts like this >>150139203
I admit I've only been here since 08, and I haven't seen small 4chan act as a community. You know what? I like the change.
I also like that we got rid of 20% tripfags and emoticons everywhere.
>boards shouldn't have a community either.
No, boards should.
Boards have board rules and board culture and everything.
But when threads do the same thing, they are for all intents of purposes no longer part of the board.
Stop trying to cling to /a/, you didn't even want to be part of it.
Were they the usual generalfaggotry with avatarfags and tripfags turning everything to shit? If so, good riddance.
DJT is educational and involves learning a language that mangas/anime are involved with and helps to educate the newest generation of scanlators/fansubbers. It's the LEAST of /a/'s problem.
That's actually the only part I gave a good read-through out of curiosity. It seemed helpful for people who wanted to learn and from what I saw of the threads, they seemed relatively constructive
We like the same things and share the same passions and hobbies. Why the need to dissociate yourselves from us? Why the hate towards those who decided to take the jump to actually learn language?
We've always been welcome to share anything with anyone willing to learn Japanese and you would have not been exceptions either, anons. Why so much negativity towards DJT? Is it an inferiority complex towards those who decided to do something challenging and worthwhile of their life instead wasting it away with mindless procrastination?
How low are you?
The future is brighter than the sun.
How about we get rid of that Drawfag General where tumblrinas keep advertising their shit in exchange for subpar art? Or turn it into a no-self-promoting (and no-requesting) zone?
Have fun on /int/ you fuck.
It's stunning how DJT is such a great boon to /a/ and filled with translators willing to translate everything we desire and yet I only see one 28-page doujin, posted AFTER DJT getting killed, referenced by you people.
Sorry about everything DJT /a/non. I just want you to know I don't agree with their decision. DJT has been on /a/ for a good few years and they never caused any trouble. I think it's dumb as fuck to all of a sudden axe DJT threads on /a/.
Generals would be much easier if it was done in an actual internet forum than in an imageboard.
Why would it be so hard to keep djt in /int/?
Just keep a tab open for it and browse /a/ as usual.
Can we just talk a bit about that anti-crack-kun guy? He literally ruins every show's thread he haunts and whenever anyone criticizes him he accuses them of being this one guy that coincidentally has the same posting style as him.
I hope you butthurt runts fuck off back to here.
We already have a Japanese thread with actual Japanese and western people that mostly speaks in Japanese who you refuse to communicate with, you wouldn't ever think of leaving your safe space. Yet, you chose to shit on the board that at most complains about the amount of generals we already have. No one goes on the Russian thread to say shit about Russia because they can't even understand half the shit they're saying in the first place, for example. The only thing you've managed to do so far is say shit about my board and be a fucking hypocrite in your own little enclave.
Fuck off, we're full.
Not later than yesterday, the Jojo general had people spamming Jojo pepes (yes, the frog) and nothing was done about them.
So an educational thread is wrong, but a Pepe spamming general is ok?
If you don't believe me look at the archives.
I don't really go in /djt/ but the flags could really ruin their threads on /int/, and the whole board is cancer anyway, would be better to move them on /jp^/ but I doubt it would be useful to move them on a board where almost everyone has some basics in Japanese.
I don't like generals but no matter how much I think about it, I don't know where they could go except /a/.
Why not just admit that /a/ has become /v/ and just create /ag/ anime generals?
The population is no longer interested in amusing one another through the medium that is anime and manga, the population is only interested in circlejerks (If you don't like it don't post in the general), essentially 4chan should just become a regular internet forum.
>not perma hiding that cancer
This thread is pointless and doesn't belong here.
I currently have 5 general threads hidden by my filters, which just shows the utter stupidity of these mods. They banned literally the most helpful general thread on /a/ and left us with the trash. They're turning out board into /v/.
Here's some stuff I did a few years back, which I never would have bothered doing if it wasn't for /djt/.
I don't translate anymore, because there are too many retards like you who expect the world to cater to their every whim.
This was tried about a month ago. The meta threads quickly became meta general and filled up with garbage. Nobody could agree on anything. It's not like Hiroyuki would listen to our requests anyway.
>Why not just admit that /a/ has become /v/
Nice try >>>/v/ermin
/ag/ is the solution to all of our problems.
Want to discuss a series 24/7? Now you can do it on a designated board.
Can't stand the sight of generals on the catalog? Poof, now they're gone.
>/a/ turns into /v/ 2.0 concerning thread quality
>/ag/ is a cancerous fucking cesspit of tripfaggotry, erp and other bullshit
>I don't translate anymore, because there are too many retards like you who expect the world to cater to their every whim.
Says man currently wanting the mods to cater to his whims.
But good that DJT existed so we could have more translators who don't translate anything.
The only thing djt gave /a/ is a bunch of anons with an inflated sense of self worth.
"I translated that one thing but I quit because nobody appreciated it."
djt is for self improvement, not so you become another e-peen seeking scanlator.
>Is there any assurance that DJT will be allowed in /ag/?
It would be stupid not to allow it there. I don't think people who browse other generals have a problem with it, and apparently it's not welcome on any of the existent boards. If you ask me there was no need to ban it from /a/, but after what happened if they move it back here it will be met with hostility.
Translator here. I rarely participated in DJTs but it seemed to be a decent place for anons to begin learning the language.
I wouldn't say it was a gathering of experienced translators ready to pick up anything, though. Those tend to float around the board and pick up whatever interested them, or lurk in the occasional scanlation thread. From what I see ITT the only translators produced by DJT had the wrong attitude like >>150140079 said.
Deleting generals mindlessly is stupid anyway, especially for Sadpanda and /djt/, all the others can fuck off though.
I just didn't understand why yesterday he moved that Umaru general on /e/, but not the Monsumu one, and the faggot general is still alive right?
This mod is so full of shit, I can't believe it's Kinomod.
This right here is why /v/ is so cancerous. There's no room for discussing topics without them being deemed "generals", so it's devolved into an image board of buzztopics and random shit with a videogame theme.
Japanese thread from /int/ is not a learning thread, this is a chatroom with tripfags, namefags, avatarfags blogging all day long about their life and whatever 3dpd stuff they're engrossed with.
Japanese people themselves aren't necessarily the best people to ask for to learning Japanese from a WESTERNER perspective because of how different the languages are.
You are also ignoring how people from /a/ and /int/ have little in common, there is no reason for us to go talk to them and them to talk to us. I also should mention that DJT already had a few regular Japanese people coming in to help us as they were also developing their English skills.
You aren't welcome in the equation here, /int/. Don't give your opinion about something that doesn't concern you in the slightest.
Indeed, first time it's mentioned in this thread, but flags are absolute cancer and have spawned nothing but shitposting and hate-posting in the current /int/ DJT threads so far.
>This mod is so full of shit, I can't believe it's Kinomod
Is it really him? I know a mod has played music in Kino threads recently but he doesn't seem to be cracking down on the garbage like Kinomod used to. For all we know it's a different mod pretending to be another mod with a better reputation.
>Japanese people themselves aren't necessarily the best people to ask for to learning Japanese from a WESTERNER perspective because of how different the languages are.
As a native speaker I agree with this completely.
His irc name is the same as Kinomod, that's basically the only proof we have, and I doubt Kinomod is retarded and new enough to move random threads to random boards without any actual reason, especially because he knows well the community here.
Some unfounded complaints from people that think generals are the devil.
There's nothing wrong with 50 re:zero threads and the difference in communities between people who post in those threads, and people who don't even watch the show, but a "general" thread much all be shitposting and tripfag cancer. Even though /djt/ has never had a tripfag last more than 2 posts.
The last /jojo/ thread I saw before adding it to my filter was full off off topic /pol/ shit. Facebook memes and twitter caps. This is what you're defending. Jojo is 90% transplants from other boards that have nothing to do with /a/, it does not belong on this board or anywhere.
Reading this thread is making me lose the respect I had for /a/. Best board my ass.
You don't care about this board. You only care about "le epic happening" and act all smug when other people get fucked over, even when you have no real reason to be.
I'm seriously considering leaving this site.
>hehehe, don't let the door hit you on the way out
One thing which could make /a/ better is to be more rational about what is a request thread and what isn't.
For instance "What's are the action anime you enjoyed" isn't a request thread. It's a way to talk about anime which isn't airing right now.
Considering how shit the seasons have been lately, we need as many ways to escape the tedium of post ironic circlejerk.
Some manga and anime have NSFW content, to be free to discuss those series with pictures /a/ should be a nsfw board, not this "sometimes mods allow nsfw posts, but every 1/10 time they ban you lol" bullshit.
Most anime and manga series have "loli" characters, banning people who talk about "loli" characters seems counterproductive.
In general mods should focus on maintaining quality, not satisfy some abstract sjw mentality of whichever mod happens to be awake at the time.
One chapter per month, so what?
You want to keep the thread for the whole month because of the manga? Two or three threads will be enough to discuss the new chapter, after that your general can fuck off until there is something new to say about it.
Also your pastebin can fuck off as well.
Nobody is saying they can't talk about their manga or show, but their general thread needs to die. Immediately. The fact they delete DJT but not god awful shit like /jojo/ is salt in the wound here. I might be able to tolerate the loss of DJT if it meant finally ridding /a/ of the cancerous jojo threads, the fag threads, and the attack on titan threads.
>/a/ is literally /v/ now
>/a/ is literally Rebbit now
>/a/ is literally full of normalfags now
>that is why such and such cancer should be allowed on /a/, because /a/ is beyond saving anyway
Can't you people see that this is basically a demoralization tactic? The shitposters want to ruin this board further.
/a/ only needs an /ag/ if we want the board to return to making memes and non-specific OC (which would mostly just result in the board becoming even more of a mirror of /v/ in desperate attempts to make mountains out of molehills)
general-focused board culture is generally better and more diverse and would probably not be too different from what we have now or what /vg/ is, with only a handful of games actually being relevant long enough to have regular generals that last past 100 threads or so
The thing is that it's only worth doing if we want to admit and allow /a/ to be a complete shithole, because 3x3 threads and general elitism would desperately need to be relocated
I didn't say to delete all threads I said to delete their faggy little club house. Force them to create spontaneous threads for discussion. For the first month or so, that will mean auto-deleting every Jojo thread not made on Friday or when a new chapter comes out, until they learn how to behave like real human beings again.
>Considering how shit the seasons have been lately,
Newfags just refuse to try out shit on their own and only go by what's discussed on /a/.
The recent seasons have been excellent though if you actually bothered to try out stuff for yourself.
It's ironic how /a/ talks less and less about current anime and as a result retards think there are less and less good shows out there and the vicious cycle continues.
Fuck off, retard. Watch more anime.
>until they learn how to behave like real human beings again.
They were never real human beings in the first place. The people who populate Jojo threads are straight out of /v/.
>I can't be bothered going to a board designated for learning languages or a board designated for all things japanese, so NOBODY SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO REMOVE MY OFFTOPIC THREAD
That would be the best but unfortunately, I doubt mods cares enough to check the threads everyday and delete when the discussion become worthless, a simple rule like "constant threads about an airing anime are allowed" is already more than enough.
>Don't give your opinion about something that doesn't concern you in the slightest.
It concerns me when you help to pollute the already general-infested front page.
What's really funny is that most of the djt threads on /int/ so far were less than half written in Japanese. There were people legitimately helping each other, but also people still butthurt (the ones who usually start the flag shitposting and ESL/EOP calling in a language learning thread anyway) about the move, with the occasional "umm sweetie we already have a Japanese thread" or "fuck off /a/ rejects" one-time posts from someone who saw the thread on the first page.
I do agree that we have little in common, that doesn't prevent me from going to a thread mostly populated by /a/ people on /vg/, for instance. I really have to wonder how much you care about these threads, seeing as some of you are the first to start shitposting on them.
Actually you're the newfag.
I've been here since 2005 and anime now is garbage.
It is. The problem is people like you think everyone should force themselves to watch formulaic LN shit or SOL.
Japan can keep shitting this disease out for as long as they like, it's not good and it doesn't deserve any attention. If that means anime becomes less and less popular outside of Japan - I'm OK with that.
Or, while we're at it, how about we have a whole board dedicated to requests and call it >>>/r/? And since it's obviously going to be flooded with porn, we might as well have a board for work-safe requests too, >>>/wsr/.
>I can't be bothered going to a board designated for learning languages
/int/ is not a thread for learning languages. I don't know how you've arrived at such a dumb conclusion, I can only assume the mod dick is so far down your throat that you think any decision made must be the "right" one.
>or a board designated for all things japanese
Going to /jp/ would be a step down from /a/, but it wouldn't be the absolute cancer incarnate that /int/ is. Unfortunately for you, the /jp/ janny is so intensely autistic that such an idea isn't feasible.
So really, the only option is /a/, where we've been for the past 4 years, bothering nobody. While not the ideal place for the thread, it's the best solution at the current time.
>tfw djt was the only good thing about /a/cesspool.
this containment board might just be the worst of them all.
>The problem is people like you think everyone should force themselves to watch formulaic LN shit or SOL.
You don't even know what's airing this season. There's barely any LN shit.
Why don't you actually go and watch some anime, faggot?
>The problem is people like you think everyone should force themselves to watch (10% of whatever is currently airing)
Kill yourself you retard
>I've been here since 2005
And you probably haven't developed a lick of sensibility or taste since then
>you think everyone should force themselves to watch formulaic LN shit or SOL
Less than 10% of the currently airing anime is LN or SoL. I bet you don't even bother looking at the seasonal charts and just base your idea of the industry by what you see on /a/.
IMO you faggots are making this a lot harder than it should be. Regulating the frequency of threads and so forth? What on earth is the issue if people are talking about anime or manga? If they are being cancerous that's their problem, just make a new thread.
This board really only needs three rules:
>the thread has to be anime or manga-related
>no Facebook/tumblr/garbage from other boards (e.g. Pepe)
>no unnecessary censorship from mods (looking at you Nipplemod)
It would be nice if Hiroyuki purged the current mods and assigned board-specific mods but that will never happen.
The thing is, /a/ has recs.
If you just lurk /a/ enough to figure out how /a/ gives you recs, then we're as helpful as any other board.
Anyone who doesn't bother to lurk isn't welcome here and should fuck off to /wsr/ or wherever.
>And so long as DJT was about learning Japanese and not about socializing, the mods allowed it.
You do realise this whole thing started because someone baited a mod in a metathread into deleting some threads, right? It's nothing to do with the mods having a long think about the quality of /djt/, it's just a total whim.
So where exactly are you going to draw the line? How many threads is a show "allowed" to have withing a given timeframe? If it takes a thread 8 hours to hit the bump limit are you just going to delete it? How about if 4 days after the show airs a thread fills up after only 3 hours? Are we not "allowed" to talk about the show anymore?
>You do realise this whole thing started because someone baited a mod in a metathread into deleting some threads, right?
You do realize that the mods have warned DJT several times in the recent past not to stray off-topic too much or they'd get deleted?
What happens when the only thing allowed in /a/ are threads about clear-cut anime/manga that are still under release? Are we becoming a database forum, to the likes of MAL, with no leeway for any common, cross-thread culture developing?
Instead of a giant gathering of people exchanging their knowledge and taste, allowing for serendipity and actual deepening of the hobby, we'll end up as a bunch of randomly-selected small groups damned to coexist inside a no-bully bubble for the duration of the season.
In this model I'd rather not loose my time and just skim the discussions the following day over the archive, but OH WAIT, no discussion of any value will come out from this diluted "community". I can just read a given episode's Forum discussion at MAL and see what NarutoGirl_Forever_XxX666 thought about it back in 2009 when the show was released.
A few threads on Fridays, similar to how Toonami is treated on /co/. They get all Saturday night to post about Toonami and the mods delete anything made after the block ends. Seems like a good deal to me, apply the same time limit to anytime a new episode or chapter comes out. They have 24 hours to make the most of it.
No. That already happened, and it was fucking retarded. And besides, >>>/wsr/ exists. It's 2016. There are a myriad of resources at your disposal with which you can find anime. Google, MAL, AniDB, Anilist, the list goes on. The vast majority of rec threads are incredibly stupid, too, with people asking for recommendations for the most easy-to-find of series. There's no excuse for you to be unable to find anime that suits your tastes. Stop cluttering up the board with more shit topics.
It's funny, too, because by changing the rewording of your OP even slightly, you can still get free recommendations from people too stupid to realize that they are getting baited into aiding rec threads.
When did telling people to "lurk more" become a sign of elitism or "sekrit klub" mentality? Does the prospect of becoming a better poster really hurt some people's feelings that much?
>There's barely any LN shit.
And most of the anime originals this season are so bad they don't even deserve a 3 episode rule.
>sensibility or taste since then
And by that you mean I don't watch gay shit like Ping Pong Girls. Good thing I never developed that taste.
People wounder why /a/ is dying? These two shits right here.
I don't care about generals. Bigger problem is people who use normie memes here especially twitter style posting that spreads from pol.
We need a mod who perma bans these fuckers on sight.
>/int/ - International
>This board is for the discussion of foreign culture and language. Please be respectful.
>discussion of foreign language
>Posting in languages other than English is allowed—and encouraged!
Also a single glance at /int/ directed me through a sticky to a wiki with "The Official /int/ How to Learn A Foreign Language Guide" main subject.
Sounds like /int/ is for learning languages, so /djt/ should be there.
Ignore the rest of the post, why don't you?
There is no language learning board. /djt/ fits in best on /a/, which has a lot of posters who might be interested in learning Japanese.
While completely refusing to respond to any reports from the thread.
Here's a basic example, imagine one guy is shitting up the thread. You report him. Nothing is done. Nobody even responds to him, but he just keeps going at it. By the end of the thread, you've got a thread with half normal discussion from a few hundred posters, and half "lol u guys jap bad" spam garbage from 2 or 3 retards. Which do you think is going to be noticed?
>It concerns me
>less than half written in Japanese
Then how about you reply to my Japanese-written post directed at you, shitlord?
You either call DJTers spineless for not mingling or undesirable for not being able to Japanese. Swinging your argument as you fancy is nothing more than shitposting.
There's less than 5 LN adaptations out of more than 50 anime airing right now. There's usually only 2 or 3 SoL shows in a season. There's literally over 40 seasonal anime that are neither SoL or LN, but you wouldn't know that because you're a casual who doesn't watch anime and you find it easier to complain and pretend like there's nothing to watch.
The real reason is you just don't like anime.
>What happens when the only thing allowed in /a/ are threads about clear-cut anime/manga that are still under release? Are we becoming a database forum, to the likes of MAL, with no leeway for any common, cross-thread culture developing?
That's already the case. We're reddit.
>Instead of a giant gathering of people exchanging their knowledge and taste, allowing for serendipity and actual deepening of the hobby, we'll end up as a bunch of randomly-selected small groups damned to coexist inside a no-bully bubble for the duration of the season.
Telling someone he's watching shit is considered trolling now. So yes. What do you expect.
>In this model I'd rather not loose my time and just skim the discussions the following day over the archive, but OH WAIT, no discussion of any value will come out from this diluted "community"
What, you don't want to look at the same images of someones waifu being posted every day for 3 months?
Well I don't think you belong here !
They're basically the only thread where you can find something else than Vanilla and thicc shit, and weird fetish aren't allowed on /e/.
Another thread like /djt/ that has no place to go but /a/.
>tfw you thought /a/ would improve after the election was over
>it only got worse or stayed the same
When will 4chan die?
When will I finally be free?
Hey, buddy. There's a board called /d/! Not only that, but sadpanda has a search function. You can type any dumb fetish you want and find a dozen things to jerk off to!
There's literally no reason /a/ should have a thread for porn.
/djt/ was made for the express purpose of learning Japanese by consuming anime & manga not the the usual reason for learning languages (i.e. for communication with other people). Also the threads have been on /a/ for 4 years, most posters are /a/nons.
This season is pretty heavy with them, but normally it's much fewer. The last couple seasons for instance were extremely dry for SoL. That said, I still count only around 5 or maybe 6 SoL shows. I'm standing by my assertion that you don't even try to find anime to watch and just prefer to complain because you don't actually like anime.
>That's already the case. We're reddit.
I know. But it's always worth a shot.. How am I going to graduate into an old fart if I don't get used to complaining about the golden age?
Last time I tried reasoning with /a/ was during Kill la Kill, where I ended up mobclobbered for complaining about the show going down the drain, even though I was a watcher.
Generals are the only remaining content generators - at least you can enter them and grab a sticky or ask something topical. And with the end of generals, we will just have those MAL kids bashing each other because of ships they don't agree with.
>complaining about the show going down the drain
KLK was literal garbage from the first episode. I think that show was the first time it really clicked, that the majority of people on /a/ were actually shit eaters of the highest magnitude.
And the problem isn't people asking questions, it's asking questions that are answered through a minimal amount of lurking. It isn't the board's responsibility to educate people that know nothing.
>And with the end of generals we will just have MAL kids bashing each other because of ships they don't like.
God this shit is just going to keep getting worse and worse isn't it? We're really gonna sink to MAL tier aren't we lads?
I'm not saying sadpanda, I'm saying you can find weird fetish shit there. You don't even have to click any links.
When it comes time to look up a doujin, you can just go to the sadpanda and use the amazing search function. Or just browse all the stuff uploaded that day because you've exhausted all the older stuff you like already.
You sound like a reasonable anon, but you need to remember not everyone's gonna take your advice so easily. It's why compromise is needed from both sides, but if history tells us anything it's that treaties merely delay or build up tension until a conclusive conflict, and all signs point to 4chan going under once and for all
Also what happened to waifu threads though?
I can't belive we're killing many of the traditional threads on /a/ like waifu wednesday, DJT, It's time, etc. and not gonna bother reading this thread
The thing is the show didn't take itself seriously and was worth it for the action and comedy. Then it became drama and asspulls, but people in /a/ were ENJOYING that turn of events, knowing more of MC's dark past and swallowing all that Trigger smoking poop with no question. All I wanted was for it to go back to its initial stage OR do a proper redirection of events, with some proper storytelling.
But do I get to talk anything negative about SATSUKI-SAMA? No, I must get out because if I am not a fanboy, I am not welcome to give my opinion. That's what I meant with "no-bully bubble" in my first post.
Number of LN anime this season: 3 (including leftovers from Summer)
Number of SoL anime this season: 8 (if you include some comedies/dramas with heavy SoL leanings)
Number of anime for kids: 7
None of this counting the TV shorts and ONAs. So at most that's 18 shows crossed off your list with more than 30 still available. Of course plenty of these shows are probably decent and fun, but you'd never know that because you refuse to watch them, just like you refuse to watch the nearly 3 dozen other shows that don't fit these categories on some lame pretext. Anything to avoid watching anime huh?
>/djt/ was made for the express purpose of learning Japanese by consuming anime & manga not the the usual reason for learning languages
If I wanted to learn sewing for the express purpose of making cosplay outfits from various anime and manga, would /a/ be the most appropriate place for my threads?
You can use that argument when there is a language (image)board. Now back to /cgl/, landwhale.

Post-irony never fucking existed in the first place kiddo
>This board is for the discussion of foreign culture and language.
You've never been to /int/. It's a board for people to jerk off about their own country. Would you suggest that someone who wants to take a Chinese language course should just go down to Chinatown instead?
more needs to be done cause this place sucks
The only Japanese I know is some entry level tier katakana and hiragana.
>undesirable for not being able to Japanese.
No I was just highlighting how you could be helped by the people there. There aren't only Japanese people on the Japanese thread, have you even tried interacting with them before ruling out that option? I know that I've helped a bit anons out there with my language and questions about my country, although I rarely visit the general.
Of course that I can't talk for the entire board, but you're undesirable because you don't want stay there and you're shittalking my board, wouldn't give two shits otherwise. As I said, few bother ever interacting with those generals unless they have a particular interest in them, not even the ones that use English as their main language (/v4/, /balk/, /Brit/, /cum/).
>It's a board for people to jerk off about their own country.
And /cgl/ is a board for people to post pictures of their stored up period blood.
If there is any validity behind keeping Daily Japanese Thread in /a/, my Daily Sewing Thread is as valid.
Okay, let's put flags and /b/-tier rules on /cgl/ and see how well your Alice Margatroid cosplay comes out.
OFFICIAL NEW RULES
1. /a/ won't split into /a/ and /ma/ nor will it merge with any other board.
2. LNs are allowed on /a/. Gookshit isn't.
3. Underage Bait like lol, kys, cuck and so on will result in a ban.
4. Board Based Mods have to be introduced.
5. Bring back visible Sage.
6. Move /kancolle/ to /jp/.
7. Keep the captcha system as it is.
8. Ban People asking for Source right away.
>You've never been to /a/. It's a board for people to jerk off about their favorite little girl. Would you suggest that someone who wants to take a Chinese language course should just go down to the local whorehouse instead?
>If there is any validity behind keeping Daily Japanese Thread in /a/, my Daily Sewing Thread is as valid.
Go for it. Variety is the spice of life. If you can relate it to anime then fuck throw it in the mix. Its better for the board.
Narrow focus and trigger happy mods are not better. Splitting the user base and shrinking the board kills it
>The only Japanese I know is some entry level tier katakana and hiragana.
So all that elitism was just hot air?
As I (written poorly) said in my post to you in Japanese, my grammar sucks ass and if we flooded the Nihongo Thread with Japanese amateurs, we would 1) Cause trouble to their current users, deviating the subject to learning Japanese 2) Cause friction and infighting because they will start to hate beginners.
You can bring a foreigner or two to your usual circles, but as soon as they are a large fraction, current Europe happens.
That's all part of the old rules.
And we won't get mods because that requires someone to give a fuck for our small board enough to actually screen the people getting privileges.
>Would you suggest that someone who wants to take a Chinese language course should just go down to the local whorehouse instead?
You could probably find a cheap tutor in a chinese whorehouse, they would probably love the company and speaking their native language.
>people actually saying good riddance
Why are there so many morons here?
Seriously acting like the one kind of "general" on this board that actually tries to encourage learning something VERY useful for the hobby is "cancer". DJT may have had retards in it but it's also a strong resource for anyone on this board.
I'm not saying there weren't bad elements in it but this is 4chan, there are bad elements fucking everywhere.
I'd rather have DJT than /pol/ infesting us, or idol threads, or other trash.
Basically. The stealth circlejerks too like loli threads and this is your x that don't have anything in the subject field, so clearly it's not a general guys.
This is a step for the better but there needs to be a lot of improvement for this to be an interesting board. It starts with the userbase wanting to improve their quality of posts and start intermingling and being a little less organized and afraid of multiple threads so all your buddies won't be in the same thread
The only shit that should have been removed are weekly waifus threads since there is no discussions and only fanart posting (Miuna monday, Megumi tuesday, waifuname thursday etc) and memeing everyday posts. Except Sakurafag maybe to not trigger muh board culture autists.
Generals for airing anime is fine even though they are cancerous and they would die off once the show stops like Osomatsu, Mayoiga and DR3 threads did. Better than flooding the whole board.
I don't know if generals for the show that ended like Monsume have anything to discuss except waifu circlejerking. Manga is still ongoing. But if there is nothing they should fuck off too.
/DJT/ should have been moved to /jp/. Same for Buyfags and maybe scanlate anons.
/jp/ Mod should be TOLD by Hiro like that Nipplemod was.
This season is worse than 2015.
Fall is such a dry spell that garbage like Dragon Ball Super is the only thing people can gather under. Yuri/fujobait featuring ass fighting and Nippon Stronk vs Evil Jesus is sadly not interesting
>7. Keep the captcha system as it is.
Kana captcha, no good?
Mods can do only so much, removing generals won't do anything by itself we have to come up with threads that will move those stagnant idiots or we're going to get pseudo generals and a catalog full of reddit tier threads.
Also people tend to forget that not everything must be about discussing anime as that as long as it is related to anime and manga FUN threads can exist.
>You implied a reverse harem cannot be SOL.
I don't see what the fuck that has to do with genres. Things can be multiple genres - an adventure series can also be fantasy, or sci-fi, or comedy. But Nisekoi isn't SoL, and neither is Kiss Him, Not Me.
> Then what do you call GJ
GJ-bu? That's not a harem.
> you inbred mouth breathing chickenshit motherfucker?
It's past your bedtime.
>Fall is such a dry spell that garbage like Dragon Ball Super is the only thing people can gather under.
Most of the DBS threads are made by a new wave of newfags and a bunch of trolls.
There are plenty of good shows.
>Yuri/fujobait featuring ass fighting and Nippon Stronk vs Evil Jesus is sadly not interesting
So you watched like 4 shows this season?
>I want all of that fucking off-topic trash out.
What's hilarious is that it's more widespread than ever, across dozens of threads. Doing retarded shit like removing /djt/ just makes the catalog look "better" to morons.
It's not really off topic.
I've used DJT in order to pick up the language at a beginner level, which allowed me to do some translations when story timing untranslated manga.
I could've used something else, for sure, but it was still a ready and available thing that I fucking used to give original content to the board.
Again, nothing needs to be explained. I can literally plug in "anime like [any stupid entry-level rec thread anime]" in Google and get recommendations. MAL (at the very least) and AniDB should be common knowledge for any idiot who has lurked for more than a week or watched anime for any reasonable amount of time.
If your thread is literally just one stupid question that is nothing than an entitled, undeserved plea for help for nothing in return, then yes, you should piss off and lurk the fuck more. You need to adapt to the board, not the other way around. This "elitism" (for lack of a better word) is what keeps this place from devolving into an utter shithole.
The general sentiment of entitlement has gotten far too strong lately, but I suppose that's to be expected in an age of instant gratification, where entitled pissbabies expect other people to cater to their every whim. "lurk more" is an implicit request to become a better poster, not a fucking insult, and the fact that so many people take umbrage at the remark is pretty scary. It's definitely symptomatic of something.
There's a huge difference between that and the original topic of conversation, which was rec threads, but yes. Lurk the fuck more.
>stop liking what i don't
anything tangentially related to anime should be allowed. it provides for more diversity and keeps the board alive
>Overspecialize and you bread in weakness
>learning jap and its keyboard just for discussing anime
Oh fuck off. After the shift at hospital I'm tired as hell and all I want is to discuss my magic girls battle royale.
OK let's say those 2 shows aren't SOL because I can't be bothered to argue with an obvious NEET virgin.
What about the other 22 you retard?
How the fuck did you reach the count of 6. You ran out of fingers, counted the last one on your dick and you stopped?
I seriously want to know.
we should speak Japanese talk all over /a/. then they will wish they had a board to contain it. alternatively some might wish for a board to learn the language too. even our haters will be begging for us back
>then yes, you should piss off and lurk the fuck more
May I suggest a multiple month long ban instead? If you haven't even read the global rules, why should you be allowed to post?
>But it does. It teaches new people when and how to use sage and what it does.
Except it won't.
If it's visible and they aren't shitposting (which is rare) then they have little way to know what it actually is, they might not even notice it.
Making it invisible serves its original purpose with zero way to fuck it up, a way to post in a thread without bumping it (for whatever reason that may be).
Imagine you're having a sick convo about your latest little girl anime. Then some guy starts a funny little tangent about quantum mechanics, which you join in on because it's a level of absurdist abstract humor.
And then you all get fucking banned forever because the thread veered into "off-topic" territory. This is the garbage you're literally promoting right now. Kill yourself.
>If it's visible and they aren't shitposting (which is rare) then they have little way to know what it actually is, they might not even notice it.
Of course they'll notice it. The name is fucking blue.
Also, I have sage as standard. I only bump when I specifically mean to.
>racist shitposting board
Fuck off to wherever you came from.
No fuck off, no more fucking general boards. They always leak out and they never work.
Because mods are fucking retarded and don't actually deal with the real generalshit that most of us actually want gone (/ai/ threads, stalker general,
its time, etc.)
DJT actually serves a decent purpose unlike those other threads and yet again mods fuck up everything. Although shit like >>150139203 makes me re-question whether killing them off was a good thing or not.
Like half your list is short series with episodes less than 7 minutes long. In fact I see multiple series on there with 2 minute episodes. And out of those you also got their genres wrong. But taking them out this is what your list looks like
>Kiss Him, Not Me
Which you called a "shoujo" thus proving you're an absolute retard. You wouldn't know real shoujo if it stared you in the face, which will actually be proved later in this list.
>Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru
Apparently a fantasy/sci-fi show is now SoL simply because you don't like it.
It's an otome anime, basically a harem for girls, which you'd know if you weren't a casual who's probably only seen 20 anime in his life.
First show on here I'd call SoL for sure.
A typical shoujo romance, and sure enough you didn't even notice it.
>Magic of Stella
The second real SoL show
>Scorching Ping Pong Girls
Sports manga adaptation. Pro tip: just because something has cute girls doesn't mean it's SoL. Watch more anime and you'll get the hang of this.
I get that you think anything that doesn't have punching and explosions must be SoL, but comedy is actually it's own independent genre.
>Mahou shoujo nante
Man if you had watched even a single episode of this show you'd realize what a retard this makes you.
And lo, the 3rd actual SoL
And that makes four
This is a drama.
This makes 5.
>Fune wo Amu
There's still more than 2 dozen anime airing this season that you didn't cover. Care to explain why you're not watching them? Is it because you just don't like anime?
Wouldn't be surprising seeing as you clearly know nothing about it and just judge shows off of what you see on /a/.
The name being blue doesn't automatically mean they'll notice, or even care, for that matter.
Unless they're using it and saying SAGE FOR THIS DUMB GAY SHIT (i.e. the exact opposite of what its intended use is) it's unlikely they'll know what it does unless they have already read the FAQ, and at that point it renders this argument
>Also, I have sage as standard. I only bump when I specifically mean to.
>Merge /a/, /y/ and /u/
Remove /y/ and it should be alright I suppose.
>Kinomod comes back
>/a/ goes to shit
Then cosplay threads should be allowed too, jap literature too since it often mentioned in anime, hentai could be moved here since everyone is fapping and posting lewds anyway and we have sadpanda threads. /toy/ threads about Gundam and big robots can be here as well as papercraft and origami.
Hell, let's return at the beginning when there were no boards except /a/ and later /b/.
>And why are you not discussing anime in /b/ if you want diversity?
do you lack reading comprehension, i said tangentially related, not just a huge pile of shit.
regardless things like the drawfags, djt, and even fucking r/a/dio for better or worse are all pieces that hep make the whole more then the sum of its parts
if you keep cutting pieces off you will be left with nothing but anime reviews
Just ignore the threads you dislike and participle in those you enjoy, self moderate
The law is a blunt hammer, not a precision instrument. Do you think cranky janny who hasn't had his hotpocket yet is going to understand the leaps in logic you made to turn a show discussion into quantum mechanics? No, you're all just going to get banned.
Some of the funnest times I've had on /a/ have been in threads that might be considered off-topic. The spirit of the board is more important than the letter.
SOL is not a genre retard.
>but MAL said so
This is why I don't watch anime.
You consume this garbage and you think I should as well. No. I won't.
Go fucking kill yourself now. If you watch this shit you obviously one step from doing it anyway.
Are you saying that if I go browse through the 1000+ DJTs I can find manga resources in every one of them? Or are those just an occasional byproduct of having constant threads 24/7?
>crying that your community on an anonymous website got bitchslapped
shit go make a subreddit or something, we dont want your clique here
>The name being blue doesn't automatically mean they'll notice,
Yes, it does.
Maybe they don't care, but they'll learn with time when the topic comes up.
After lurking for a few months, even if they haven't understood the purpose behind it, they'll understand that sage is a thing. And a bit further into the future, they'll even know what it does.
Maybe at some point they'll even learn how to use it properly. But either way, you can't really deny that back before it was invisible, practically everybody on /a/ and /jp/ knew what sage was and did.
>But either way, you can't really deny that back before it was invisible, practically everybody on /a/ and /jp/ knew what sage was and did.
I think everyone on the site knows what it did, and I would assume everyone on the site still knows what it does, except that because you can't see it you think people don't use it.
Actually in it. It's a good thread.
It was in the OP.
The threads themselves? I dunno, I never really posted in them, I just used the resources. I never identified it as a "bad" series of threads, though. Frankly I think drawthreads are worse, but they somehow persist.
>jerking off artists for poorly drawn doodles 24/7
I sincerely apologize. I misinterpreted your remark to a retarded degree. I'm a faggot, please rape my face.
The CoR is maintained by people from the thread. People have literally bought and ripped manga to add to it.
Hell, this week, we could have had a few hundred new volumes uploaded, but thanks to this shitstorm nobody is taking advantage of the 450円 off deal to rip stuff.
No he didn't faggot, they fired him years ago.
/int/ can't be racist because over 50% of /int/ are non-white. They literally just shit on each other, they don't call for the organized killings of Slavs or Niggers you fucking cold turkey.
Because mods are just doing this to make another organized shitstorm.
>watches escapism shit
>implying what I said is edgy and not an astute observation about his fucked up psyche
Uh-huh. Go poison yourself in a tent like those retarded japanese otaku.
>SOL is not a genre retard
Yes it is, though it doesn't surprise me you would think this given your appalling ignorance about anime in general. This might also surprise you but anime can (and frequently do) have multiple genres. I categorize shows into genres based on their main appeal, the genre most weighted in the show. So even if it does have SoL aspects (like 3-gatsu for example) I call it a drama because it's drama aspects are far more important to its tone.
>except that because you can't see it you think people don't use it.
In threads that posters actually agree on are shit, you can observe how widely used sage is.
I think before invisibility we got something like 70% sage use in such cases.
Nowadays I think it's more like 15%.
>No he didn't faggot, they fired him years ago.
He's the one in charge of the rizon account acting as the mod that started this. Said rizon account still belongs to the same person it used to and is acting responsible.
Nothing's stopping you from going back.
>Also people post these anime pictures without ever saying what anime it's from
Man, how embarrassing. Just go to /r/ or /wsr/ to get the sauce on something. I don't know how you folks on Reddit do things, but around here we don't usually post sauces along with images. And in case you haven't noticed, if a picture of an anime is in a thread of a specific anime, 9 times out of 3 it'll be related to that anime.
It's alright anon. Everybody makes mistakes.
The CoR was built and is currently maintained by DJT. Some contributions:
>Raws that were previously only found in shit like PD and Share.
>Mass conversion of LNs and Japanese novels to Kindle and EPUB format
>Newly scanned raws and anons that bought digital LNs that weren't previously found on the Internet and put them on the CoR

>Digitalization effort of the DoJG, arguably the best (English) resource for learning Japanese grammar
Wich ghostory wuld /A/ fugg? Id fug the doll
Transparency went out the window when moot left. They are accountable to nobody now because Hiroyuki has no fucking clue what he's doing with this site and can't take them to task for abusing their powers. They will do the bare minimum to keep the site functioning because without it they'd have no purpose in life. But they will happily destroy 4chan's communities if it means keeping traffic up.
>Except you can't know that
No, I can't.
It takes a slow thread and careful observation to figure out stats for modern /a/, and of course it would be crazy to judge what fast threads are like from slow threads.
And anything I say about old /a/ is by necessity heavily filtered.
But I still am confident that even if my numbers aren't perfectly correct, they roughly describe the general trend.
You're going to love this. Trust me.
What you're seeing now is my normal state.
This is a "super shitposter".
This what is known as a super shitposter that has ascended past a super shitposter. Or, you could just call this a super shitposter two.
even further beyond!
Yep. There's a reason moot deleted it at first, he could sense what poison it was to 4chan's well. Only the sheer autistic fury of the edgy nazi kids on other boards made him bring it back in the hopes it would contain their autism. Unfortunately those initial fears he had came to pass and /pol/ acted like a lodestone to bring in waves of facebookers and redditors.
>Hiroyuki has no fucking clue what he's doing
He is literally pretending to be retarded. It's how he avoids criticism.
The thing is, a lot of stuff that moot and 4chan cared about, he doesn't give a flying fuck about.
To him, 4chan is a business.
>Move to new board
>Half of the people who actually post in DJT probably wont follow it to /int/
>New people will be racist shitposters instead of people who watch anime, read manga, and want to learn nip
Do you not see the problem?
