I hope you can become a loli like the guy in Joshi shougakusei hajimemashita.
Of course I know you can't, you'll just be a thirty year old deprived of something most people consider a normal and integral part of life.
>TFW too old to slam
This, 2010 was a god tier time. There was practically no moderation and we could do whatever we wanted. Modcat just sort of stayed in the shadows and picked apart shit that wasn't /a/ culture specifically.
>megaupload link in description
i need to get out of this shithole lads
>only /r9k/ is allowed to be cynical
Spooks be gone. Modern society is slavery that most people have been conditioned to embrace. A sort of mass scale Stockholm syndrome that has over the long course of civilization been breed into the human race. Those who realize this may be depressed and unstable, but they are not wrong.
>there was once a time where there was no Keit-ai spam

Thought I was the only one. Looking to break free this year.
>you now remember that fansubs used to be distributed through IRC, then megaupload, and now everyone just watches streams either on Crunchy Roll or ripped from crunchy roll
I hate the modern anime scene.
There's no where to go.
2016 was a great year for anime itself. In fact I think anime has only gotten better since 2010. I just hate the anime community, or at least the Western anime community, nowadays.
Just kill yourself.
The job market is fairly fucked around my parts of the world, every job has multiple applicants and job experience is more or less a must since the other applicants usually have that. And with no work experience you won't get work experience. It ain't that hard or uncommon anon.
this is legit not okay
i hated that lewd mmds became a thing
By neetbux. Though I have not been a neet for 7 years, only a mere couple of years. As long as you keep searching for a job you are given enough neetbux to survive. Anyhow I am in my early 20s so I might give university a shot if I manage to get out of this rut.
>tfw you have been here for half of 4chans life
I'm not even sure if you can call this the same 4chan or not, neither how old it actually is, I found it sometime 2004-2005ish. It was shit then. It still is. And I'm still here for God knows why.
>only been coming here for 2 years
>Feel like I missed everything
These give me a strange feeling now.
>Feel like I missed everything
That's because you have.

Actually telling people to go back to Gaia instead of reddit.
As much as I hate spending so many years on here being a waste of human resources, I look fondly back on all those times, they were very fun for me.
My heart says stop but my dick says more.
Imagine any tripfag you've ever seen, and multiply their faggot rating tenfold. That's how much of a faggot LancedJack was.
>The IRC boogeyman
Oh god, the e k s dee pasta as well.
I miss them now but that's only because they're not posting.
I'm pretty sure I'll be pissed off if they're still here. It's fun bullying Niwaka-kun though.
What's worse is these thoughts only make it hotter. I think I might be a pervert.
They were even making a webcomic about it back then.

You are delusional if you think /a/ still consists of oldfags or even those from Code Geass's first airing. Be glad there's no statistics for this stuff anymore or it would be very disappointing.
The more things change the more they stay the same.
Hold me tight /a/ and never let go.
Here you go. This kills the /a/.
Are there more videos like this?
Where vocaloids/utau do lewd things while singing songs
I don't believe you faggots are actually from whatever years you claim. Whenever there are nostalgia threads or whatever, there's not nearly as many as there seems to be in this thread. Where do you run off to then?
> there's not nearly as many as there seems to be in this thread.
I honestly can't even remember the exact year, my folder has some images from 2007 so I must have saved something from then unless it's lying.
I know it took me at least 3 years to work up the courage to actually post anything though.
Once these were posted unironically.
Never deleted the folder, don't have the guts
2007 newfag. My 10th anniversary should be in September judging by the oldest pics I have saved. I have never once thought of leaving this place, I don't feel at home anywhere else.
I don't know man, it's still loading here.
HOLY SHIT, I used to love these things. There were so many more I had favorited on YT, but they've either been deleted, or made private.
What I miss the most is being able to use "lol" here. Fucking elitists.
I even get problems loading fucking nicovideo, let alone some semi-obscure erommd uploader
I think the only stable nip sites I know of are dmm and dlsite
It got "upgraded" this week. Its speed depends on the time of day, now I'd imagine it's peak hours. It's relatively fast 8-5 hours prior to this.
Responds to download command is shit, though.
Stange but if I press play on the video and then refresh and press play again it starts with no problem
Fuck you /a/, I didn't need to feel like this today.
I love all you faggots.
Power of friendship is truly beautiful
I also have this if you're interested in flying
If the answer is no, here is something to start with
implyings, my face when and ishiggiddigy never died
I wasn't prepared for this
Not that i didn't enjoy it
Onsokomaru on /v/ is the oldest I know of.
Reliable Ecchi Delivery Sniper claims to be an oldfag but the original left in like 2007 and the current one is a fag who figured out his tripcode in like 09
You were probably one of the older people on the site back then.
I think only recently are we really legitimately an over 18 site on average because the oldfags who got here underaged never left
>every job has multiple applicants
Do you think this isn't true in literally fuckign every place around the world?
Lie. Straight up lie. Lie on your resume. Lie to the guy interviewing you. If you don't lie you'll never be hired. Every time you apply you need to change your resume to suit the job. And you need to lie.
Once they hire you they train you anyway, so it doesn't matter.
Fucking this. Life is a battle to get work shit done and make money so you can enjoy the endless amount of amazingly fun things out there. Just don't lose at work or lose sight of the fun things, and the depression can never get you.
>just don't be depressed brah
Do we count years we spent on /b/ or just /a/ years?
Cancer if the former, Reddit if the latter
>Everyone who watches anime does it because they're actually mentally ill and not because they just love anime
At least that explains why there are always so many retards here.
I never quite stopped listening to vocaloid songs after that
Going by the thread, I've been here longer than about 3/4 of the posters, actually. I don't even think most people here watched Ghost Slide with /a/ as it was airing.
I just always try to avoid threads that turn into depression circlejerks, and pretending the mentally ill ERPing yurifags and fujos don't exist.
RIP Sage. Fuck 2013. Fuck Reddit.
>tfw these faggots will never know just how much just going outside and meeting people will help you mentally
Seriously the best advice I can give to anyone.
tfw I'm close friends with Siz and still talk to him this day
Gym. The answer is gym. Lift heavy weights, and holy shit the way it makes you feel is amazing. Everything is just better and you feel like king of the world. Mix in like once a week outdoors activities and doing normalfag social things about twice a month, and somehow it just injects you with the energy and focus to hone your autism into a fine blade that lets you marathon 2 seasons of anime, a couple volumes of manga and then play games until you pass out on your day off.
>I just always try to avoid threads that turn into depression circlejerks
Time to avoid this thread.
>you really shouldn't be surprised by this regardless of how much you've avoided depression related threads.
It's more like I keep trying to push it out of my mind because I don't want to deal with the cognitive dissonance of realizing that "I'm part of this fanbase. This IS the fanbase by and large." And then my friend who's half normal half not reminds me "Dude, this is the average anime fan. They aren't all normal people with a job that just come home and love their chinese cartoons to unwind."
I just came for the song, anon.
You fags gotta be baiting at this point, right?
>This IS the fanbase by and large.
It might be just amplified because this is on 4chan, but I doubt majority of Chinese cartoon fans are depressed.
Imagine you are having terrible nightmare. It's terrible, but it's terrible only to you and no other. It's a horror custom made for you by your own mind. The content is not important, but the fear is. When you wake, you wake in a room on a bed. It is your bed, but it is not your bed. It is your room, but it is not your room. With effort, you realize you have not awoken at all, but are still asleep and have dreamed of an awakening. The question remains if you are to wake and be greeted with reality, should you get out of bed or go back to sleep. You decide to do both, and you fall backward through the bed as the sheets envelop your body. It's dark, but it's not dark. You're awake, but you're not awake. You are dead and being cremated. As flames disintegrate your flesh, a scream echos through your mind but not does not escape your lips which, even if you could speak, have been glued shut. You black out once more, and awaken at dawn. As the mingled ashes of bone and oak are scattered on a beach by the one you've left behind, you finally understand:
You are not the ashes of the man, you are the ashes of coffin. You were not a man dreaming of life, but a tree dreaming you were a man.
This awakening, this epiphany... this is tanasinn.
I sometimes like to imagine an /a/ meetup. Of course it would never happen realistically, as most of us can't be bothered to leave our computers for an IRL cringefest, but the thought still intrigues me.
If it was other boards, people would most likely have fun, talk about their favourite stupid inside jokes and just enjoy the company of likeminded people. Just imagine the pure joy of /fit/izens cheering each other on at the bench press or of /pol/acks marching through the streets. Meetups of shitholes like /v/ or /tv/ would instantly devolve into pure IRL shitposting, but they would probably still enjoy it.
If /a/ ever met up, we'd most likely just sit around a table and sob about the good old time, how 4chan has gone to shit and how lonely we've become wasting our time together. Some of the less unattractive of us would have awkward, crying, gay sex, one pretending to be the others waifu, while others would finally find the courage to make a suicide pact together. At some point, someone would turn on Mou Ikkai or Fukkireta or even Hare Hare Yukai and everyone would start crying and telling each other they love everybody there.
I guess an /r9k/ meetup could be comparably miserable, but the nostalgia would be missing, replaced by even more self pity and cancer.
I love you /a/. I really do.
>Lying down on the bench
>Struggling for that last rep
>Imagine what it would be like if you were in your waifu's world and monsters attacked and you needed to protect her
>You need to do it for her
>You break your PRs
When my friends ask me how I got this strong and that's my answer, they go home and watch more anime. A couple years of that, and before you know it you're listening to Love Live songs while maxing deadlifts and saying directly to your phone "Come on you damn sluts, give me power." before proceeding to outlift everyone else while listening to Snow Halation or Koi ni Naritai Aquarium.
You need to get on this level.
Oldfag here, my biggest mistake was falling for the "everything on the internet is saved forever" meme. Well everything isn't, can't even imagine all the things I have lost from hard drive failure that will never get posted again. The archives were no good either since they all shut down or lose their data from a fuck up.
In fairness being a wage slave does suck but it is much better than being a neet.
I am still a recluse but I have a ton of cash to blow on video games and figures.
With online shopping and digital games I only leave the house for work.
I have played more games in January than all of 2016.
That's a really, really bad idea. Maybe in a perfect world.
You haven't really seen a blog thread unless you were in the era where there wasn't a 2,000 character limit per post.
Then you might have actual depression and should see a fucking doctor.
I spent half of my new years holiday at comiket, and the other half in my room watching anime, reading manga and playin Persona 5. It was lovely.
So my best bro came up to me one day all decked in a blue wig and uniform of Konata from Lucky Star. He looked so girly and sexy, my boner couldn't help but be aroused, especially when he started taking off his clothes. I asked him, "Are you serious?" and he said, "Yup."
I couldn't speak for the longest time, so he asked me, "What's the matter?" I said I'm just confused, but then my boner got really hard as he took off my clothes. Before I knew it, we were kissing each other and he was stroking my dick. I yelped, "Oh God, Konata!" as he blew me till I came.
I then said, "I want to fuck you now!" and then I fucked him in the ass. I screamed all sorts of things, like how delicious his ass is, and how hard I came inside his 17-year-old ass. A few hours later, I realized the error of my ways. Why did we do that? Now I'm totally gay. But he grabbed my shoulder, his face smelling lightly of bleach and reassured, "Let's just pretend I'm still Konata."
Pic related. It's my best bro wearing a Konata costume.
Obviously if you have some sort of social anxiety disorder
like meputting yourself into extreme situations will make things worse. All you have to do is be in a public area with a good number of people for a few hours to get the full benefit.
But really, consistently meeting people is life's answer to many problems.
Depressed? Meet people
Anxious? Meet people
Can't concentrate? Meet people
Human's are genetically wired to be social. Even introverts get benefits just from interacting with other people.
Just say hello when you pass someone.
At first it does, but then you will slowly get over your insecurities and it honestly feels so liberating.
I have a few IRL friends that I met from the movie threads like Madoka and Kizumonogatari and shit.
It's literally just an /a/ thread in real life, complete with the fact that /a/ has the best threads when it's not discussing the topic it revolves around.
I still find this shit cool as fuck.
Shame what it turned out to be IRL.
I do it all the time.
Not really. In my experience almost everyone responded positively. It's still interaction.
95% of the time I get a reply. The only times I don't I usually get a nod at the very least.
There could be other factors as well. Do you speak loud and clear enough? People won't respond if you don't look at them directly and mumble. You might talk louder and more confident to kids than to adults and not know it.
I once met a pretty cool guy from /a/ at a
convention. He wore a very shitty Tewi cosplay and was generally more of a /jp/ type, but we talked for about half an hour and it was pretty much like a typical /a/ conversation too. I was pretty surprised.
I didn't meet anybody at the Kizu screening
in GermanyI went to unfortunately. Some fat Idolfags who constantly played Love Live on their phones, but that was about it.
What happens when you realise all you've done is become able to say one word or phrase to people that pass you on the street and you still have no hope of becoming close to someone?
