Not an argument.
"Waha" was taken from Futaba. Most early 4chan memes were Futaba-based (OS-tans, "Pedobear", Nevada-tan et al.)
Higurashi in general but I remember that smug Shion and Mion face that got pasted over everyone and everything.
Also casual Edward.
>newfag mods actively trying to destroy /a/'s culture
Why did things have to come to this?
The older a meme is, the better it's remembered. Today's dead memes are tomorrow's old memes.
>The older a meme is, the better it's remembered.
>someday newfags in the future will think Keit-ai was a good meme
>mfw we were debating whether to call 4chan "Fourchan", "Yonchan" or "Shichan".
>says /a/ meme
>posts reddit meme
good job op
Japanese birds doing cute stuff in general
i remember being on here when I was in middle school during 2007 and i just first discovered what 4chan was .... I can't remember how I came about this website but when i did I remember. all i did was skim through threads only reading what others had to say and learning older memes by also skimming through encyclopedia dramatica.
sad keanu was probably one of my favorite memes back then
Yeah because today it's more like
>Horriblesubs: pretty legit but not the best, makes mistakes sometimes
>Commie / Coalgirls: Meh
>DameDesuYo / BlurayDesuYo: Legit
>Everything else: 5000000 years behind everything
>/a/ will never have an autistic waifufag like him again
Looks like not many people remember the one before him.
People used to always remember Yotsuba C when Komeiji was around. Common theory that they were the same person.
I don't remember all the details, but "5chan" was like 4chan but a lot shittier (I think it was owned by some pornsite). Anyways, the admins of 5chan got mad at MOOT for some reason so they reported to paypal that 4chan hosted CP (4chan used to have board for loli /l/).
4chan was down for a while and the idiots at 5chan made the mistake of admiting that they were the ones responsible for it. 5chan was DDoS'd in to oblivion and 4chan finally returned, but without /l/.
She was pretty flat in the movies. Not sure after she became a mother but still.
>Newfags have been here for literally a decade
Honestly if the 2008 Eternal Newfag wasn't a meme in and of itself I'd add Middlefag to where Newfag is and move everything over a bit, 'reddit' went all in with the Election.
>tfw no wedding episode
>tfw no tsundere pregancy episodes
>tfw no auntie episode
Liege Ledouche (actual shitskin from Pakistan)
>They've moved on.
>You're still here.
>mfw I realize I'm literally more autistic than Komeiji
What tripfags have we lost over the years? I remember there used to be one until last year in the bleach threads, and I haven't seen Black Star in a while.
>that commercial is nearly 8 years old
>What tripfags have we lost over the years?
You realize they (like Taiga) are getting banned on sight, right?
Wait, are they now? Derp Commander is as obnoxious as ever though
He's honestly the shittier tripfag around these days, even Lelouch isn't as bad.
And the mods are banning shit way too much lately
>hurr let's ban loli threads and imouto threads and everything else :DDD
Oh come off it, the Madara pasta still shows up once in a while at least.
>Wait, are they now? Derp Commander is as obnoxious as ever though
They are getting banned instantly if they use their tripcodes. It's been like that for years.
>even Lelouch isn't as bad
lol. This one should be banned on sight as well.
>they are getting banned instantly
Wait, all tripfags? Or do you mean there are some that are getting targeted? That'd explain why Tattun got banned """by accident""" I guess.
I mean the tripfag lelouch, and he's a lot better than Derp who is honestly just sad yet who is doing fine
>Wait, all tripfags? Or do you mean there are some that are getting targeted? That'd explain why Tattun got banned """by accident""" I guess.
No, only tripfags like Taiga and co.
>I mean the tripfag lelouch, and he's a lot better than Derp who is honestly just sad yet who is doing fine
He's an absolute garbage that has zero reason to use tripcode on /a/. He doesn't even use it outside of /a/ but avatarfags instead.
>He's an absolute garbage that has zero reason to use tripcode on /a/. He doesn't even use it outside of /a/ but avatarfags instead.
At the very least he doesn't also post like an obnoxious faggot like derp.
>Moetron isn't dead, it's just rarely posted.
I haven't seen her posted since that time we tried to give her away to another board because we didn't love her anymore.
Furry hate. Mainly bc anime is way more furry now
Moetron isn't an /a/ meme. It's a Pixiv meme.
Keit-ai is honestly unironically better.
That's like saying Ellen Baker isn't an /a/ meme.
Also this, I guess.
Only oldfags remember when 4chan and Tumblr were in lesbians with each other without "SJWs" and "feminism" getting in the way.
Tattun posted on an LWA thread and the mod banned him. That's how bad moderation has gotten on /a/.
Some people still haven't clocked he was the psycho Yotsuba C.
What are you talking about? We've been going back and forth between furry, vampires and werewolves here in md high school for the last 10 years.
I am a gym instructor. We have had people running the 1.5 mile with furry tails and arm furry things.
This is why we can't have nice things.
Is it possible to jerk off so much that you break your penis engine? I mean the wiring behind your penis, not the penis itself.
I know that I've seen at least two Maidragon threads get deleted, both of which had normal OPs. God damn it Kinomod why did you give this mod full permission to do whatever the fuck he wants and then fucked off back to your real life
If Hir0m00t fired every mod but the 2 or 3 with the lowest deletion counts, /a/ could be great again.
They returned for a non-WTC VN so I guess it is pretty much guaranteed
This is what brought me to /a/ from /b/. Literally pulled me out from hell.
It reminds me that fansubbing is fucking dead.
People didn't understand GAR even at the time, it's completely lost today. The only thing interesting about Saimoe is the fact Hinagiku never wins.
>7 years later and normies will soon be posting Keit-ai pasta everywhere
I dread the day.
>Has this mod been fired yet?
>Tattun posted on an LWA thread and the mod banned him. That's how bad moderation has gotten on /a/.
Did you actually try to moderate an imageboard by yourself? I did (not 4chan) and it takes away all joy you can have from actually discussing or funposting on a board. Sometimes you want to make more freedom but the other mods want to be strict as hell and ban him and that stupid guy and another one because he said something that can be normally ignored but not on their watch. I quit it because it takes a lot of time as well as killing your motivation to actually talk with anons. I'd never do that for free, I doubt that 4chan mods get any money for it. It's really a sacrificial shitty job.
You know, I don't know why I find this so disgusting, but I do even though this is pretty much how we posted six, seven years ago. Less :DDD and xD and retarded abbreviations though.
Everyone played this back then because it was one of the few translated games. We have much better options now. Same happened with Yume Miru Kusuri falling into oblivion, except that was an actual good game.
People only remember her on her birthday. It's a nice thread always.
Forgot the ghost of a dead born social network.
"Cuck", "tbhf" and "JUST" will be cringeworthy to you a decade from now too.
I am still asking myself what Best Key Girl threads were. I am convinced a bot was in charge of making them and every single post, it was always the exact same thing every time.
Tattun should stop talking to obvious /a/nons on Twitter.
>"Cuck", "tbhf" and "JUST" will be cringeworthy to you a decade from now too.
Honestly fucking hate this shit. It feels like a huge drop in quality of posting and it mustn't be tolerated on 4chan in any form.
I can add retards who spam "Reddit" as well because they fail to realize that by spamming it they are actually promoting it on 4chan.
>I am convinced a bot was in charge of making them and every single post, it was always the exact same thing every time.
Reminds me of this.
I laughed my ass off everytime he was around
I don't really find t-bh f-am that bad but words like cuck, thicc, kys, numale, reddit-spam and other crap must be ban-worthy.
I miss Top Gun.
The biggest problem with kys is that it's like 60% of the time the entire post.
cuck and nu-male are just some random retarded /pol/ or [r9k] shit that needs to fuck off forever.
>fucking up big time is ok, as long as you don't get paid for it
You have to do your job 100% regardless. Doesn't matter if you get paid or not. You wanted that job, you got it and now you have to live with it.
Nobody wanted to fill out the forms.
Also, butthurt was soon replaced by "salty", "salt", and "delicious tears".
It seems I don't have the 2012 one. Oh well.
Are there any ancient memes that are still alive and kicking? The only really old one I can think that's still universally used is
>before bait and after coolface there was this
Surprised I haven't seen this yet
Getting rused and all the distorted coolfaces are still around
THE STRONGEST is almost guarenteed any time Cirno gets used in a normal manner if that counts as ancient.
It's weird how a lot of these memes have disappeared in just 3 years -
>it's been 3 years
When was the last time /a/ was renamed? Infinite stratos?
>This is not yet posted
step it up, kōhaitachi
It reminds me, I haven't seen Game of Pretend in a while.
Does the Lucky Star Thread cycle still occur?
We should make a 2012 one.
Here are the anime that aired back then.
This is a 2012 meme, right?
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.
>don't believe her lies
YURIKA IS A REAL MAGICAL GIRL
>NGNL was in 2014
What the fuck where is my time...
>Don't allow any one thing to dominate the board--condense your fucking threads.
It's kind of amazing how in spite of this, there are still people complaining about generals over there.
Just make a /3jp/ for the 3dpd idols and shit geez
>Meanwhile, on 2016 /a/...
Such dead years, literally nothing good was released.
Since there's no better thread for it, I'll ask here: When the fuck did isekai become a common term? Never heard the word one minute and then the next it's being thrown around like it was always here. Did I miss something?
2012 was the year when this meme came out.
Oh, and Akibarangers too, which was cool.
It was used in LNs for a while now, but the last year is when the anime scene caught up to the LN scene, as in adaptations of the countless series started being made.
So most people already knew of the term and used it because of LNs, but if you were only into anime, it would seem like it came out of nowhere.
I love it when this gets posted. 2009 was such a good year, but at the same time it was ages ago.
>The calamity has calmed down since earlier in the year, but just like Code Geass, Strike Witches, and Tora Dora faggotry of the past, the mark Bakemonogatari has left on /a/ will be visible for many years to come.
They didn't even know about Platinum Disco, Walk Me Home Gently, and the Toothbrushing scene back then. We were naive.
>Refreshing the front page
I am not the only one who still does this, right? I don't like the catalogue much, I can't see deep into the thread like the front page lets me.
>The Heart Happened
Speaking of The Heart, wasn't this around the time that the Tsundere Christmas Carol spawned in?
Never found that one amusing.
>CODE GEASS >*> K-ON
Sad times when most of /a/ hasn't even watched moot's favorite show.
>KoG was at his peak
>Everyone was Lanced Jack and Taiga
I actually made a character in a MMO called Taiga [tripcode]. Good times.
More like, I remember most of them and have seen most of them but I still don't know what half the shows are
Like where the fuck does the ooooooooo mushroom come from? Who was EXECUTION? so on so forth.
And there's a bunch of images I completely don't recognize and it's terrible.
I'm disappointed that the Kirino/Kyosuke ending shitstorm isn't presented more prominently in that chart.
It was Code Geass levels of Oreimo spamming that day.
>I feel bad for the amount I do recognize despite barely browsing and watching maybe 5 airing shows total last year.
At this point I'm mostly waiting for the new seasons of old titles. Code Geass season 3 announcement was the main anime-related thing in 2016 for me.
I'd say Kyoani is doing okay and Shaft's Monogatari is somewhat decent (nowhere as good as the first season though). Nothing really good as GitS SAC though.
PETERHAUSEN >>>>> Blue > Yellow > Purple > Green > Red
Damn son, I shouldn't even be getting nostalgic over something like this.
Some good stuff in here. I didn't see the New Game/No Man's Skip crossover, that looked like fun. That fucking thread where the guy proved the Misaka nude selfie was possible. What happened on the thread about Laughing 7 years from now? I missed it.
>I love Emilia.
Lowest point of the year. Though 2016 in total was shit for me, wasted my whole year playing an MMO games, watching it turn to shit in front of my eyes. Oh well.
What's this about Modcat in 2016?
>What's this about Modcat in 2016?
He issued a custom warning in /pol/, someone made huge amounts of noise about it, and soon after that he got fired. It was about two weeks after Kinomod went full retard in here, and funnily enough immediately after that moderation became even worse on /a/.
Gotta listen to this every time it's posted. It's just so good, doesn't even seem something made as a joke.
Moderation on this website has been a joke for the longest time. It's amazing how it's impossible to start a thread on /v/ without an unrelated topic picture, or a cute girl image. Video Game threads get deleted while THICC threads and image dumb threads are allowed to stay up.
I suppose /a/ has been the same recently?
Speaking of things we miss, Valvrave.
I can kind understand why they kicked him out for that. Because of scummy and opaque the 4chan moderation can get it and how often mods do retarded biased shit but don't get caught red-handed for it, it would be a massive shitstorm if there was a confirmed case of a mod acting with a political agenda.
Now if they would actually purge all the shit mods, like all the normalcancers from normalfag boards who keep shitting on /a/ because mods are global.
Goddamn it i miss Koe no Katachi threads
For every 1 chapter of healing that happened the next 10 was pure suffering.
At least that one Uenofags got blow the fuck out in the end
He was /a/'s personal Christian Weston Chandler.
Valvrave is one of my favorite shows of all time, a legit 10/10. Fuck if it isn't ubbermansch literature, it was enjoyable.
Since this thread is being good, I'll post something rare.
The Madoka shitstorm on /a/ was so humongous that it's been immortalized on Nicovideo.
>literally a mutant cheeto
No, /a/'s nowhere near as bad - /v/ is genuinely the worst I've ever seen it. Niche threads are still nice, as on all boards, but the board as a whole is practically overrun with retardation.
