I found out about the forum from one of Shizu's tweets. It is good to be back into a forum after so many years. Also makes me feel old...

It will sound like a broken clock, but I also hate the (growing) censorship in the stuff I enjoy. Also the simple fact that people are being labeled -ist or -phobe because they like X or Y or Z is another thing that has been pissing me off a lot. For the longest time I could say I was against gatekeeping and just letting people enjoy stuff. Though I still stand in "let people enjoy stuff", if someone is clearly a bad actor (usually the normies), they should be gatekept the fuck out. Letting many dumb people into entertainment is what caused most of the issues we have nowadays.

Lolis are art and, therefore, are not real people with rights. Drawings of huge breasted milfs are fictional and, therefore, don't have a spine. If lolis are problematic then John Wick has literally killed thousands of people.

I work as a programmer and have a degree in Computer Science. Since companies have been bending the knee to dumb demands from "fans", I wanted to start improving my skills in order to one day try to make something myself. I am approaching two different areas: game programming (taking a bit of advantage of my job skills), drawing and learning Japanese. I really like drawing and lately have been focusing more on my drawings skills. I am taking Japanese lessons once a week and some self-studying on the side.

I have played a whole range of different types of games. VNs, sports, action, metroidvania, gacha, JRPGs, racing, etc. I really like the Soulsborne series and have done the Soul Level 1 in Dark Souls 1 (all bosses except Manus, fuck that fight!). I started but haven't completed Soul Level 1 in Dark Souls 3. Right now I am alternating between playing Hollow Knight and Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin and really enjoying both of them.

I don't remember what was the very first anime episode I watched, but I think maybe it was Saint Seiya. As a kid I watched a whole bunch, Dragon Ball (Z), Sakura Card Captors, Sailor Moon, Patlabor, Pokémon to mention a few. Unfortunately I haven't been watching as much anime as I wanted, but I think it is just bad time management on my part. Regarding manga and LNs, I have a collection of a few manga, and light novels. Oh, I also have a collection of adult doujinshi and manga. :cultured:
Additionally, I have a few figures too.

I hope my eventual excitement to be back at a forum and occasional wall of texts don't annoy people here.

よろしくお願いいたします。

Didn’t realize there was a thread for this, so umm…

Hi, my name is Bakeolm (call me Keol or Keolie for short) and i'm a huge degenerate pro-ship lolicon / shotacon weeb who likes defending lines on a paper. I discovered this forum from Shizu’s Twitter account.

I used to be a slight anti, but then shit happened in a fandom i was in and that caused my views on certain things to change heavily, and here i am now!

My main interests at the moment are JoJo, Yu-Gi-Oh, Persona, 1990s / 2000s otaku culture stuff and V-tubers, i also have some lesser ones like the Nasuverse (Fate, Tsukihime / Melty Blood, Kara No Kyoukai, etc.), BEMANI games and BL / yaoi stuff.

That’s all i gotta say about myself :/

Hello every1,
I am just a standard retard from Eastern Europe. I found this place thanks to @Shizu

Hobbies:
  • Used to be a heavy video game player but then everything went straight to shit from 2014 onward from lootboxes & scam DLCs to cancerous western politics I couldn't give a smaller shit about. Now I only play Girls' Frontline, Genshin Impact + old school games like TF2, Stalker and old Call of Duties. Sometimes also some Eroge (personal favorite is Euphoria)
  • I also fucking miss old school YouTube (2007 - 2014), while other social media I've never given even a smallest fuck about. They can all burn for all I care, especially Twitter.
  • I love anime. While I am don't have any merch I can say that I have watched quite a lot of anime in general and I know how weeb culture goes and embrace it, even if I disagree or don't like some parts of it and will defend it. Light novels, Manga, Anime, everything except Live-Action adaptations (yuck)
  • Learning Japanese and stuff related to tech like I.T.

Hey, I'm Kaz.
I was mutuals with @Halo when he was briefly on twitter so I found this place through him.
About me:
  • I'm from North America (the English speaking part obviously)
  • I play a lot of gacha games. Azur Lane, Fate/Grand order, Genshin Impact, Kantai Collection, Tales of Crestoria. Though I do play some more than others.
  • I do like lolis but I'm not into lolis exclusively or even have that strong of a preference towards lolis. I appreciate anime girls of various forms.
  • I'm in training to work with computer hardware.
  • Yes, I do use a Mac but I'm not an Apple fag. I just really like my old 2011 Macbook Pro.
Like many of you, I have a lot of issues with the twitter crowd and the increasing censorship of anime, especially lolis. While I do hope that the censorship fad will someday disappear, I'm realistic enough to know that's very unlikely so I'm glad places like this can exist where people can appreciate not just lolis but anime in general without the worry of harassment from moral grandstanding twitter mobs.

Heya, I mostly lurk but I will try to post occasionally.
Found this place through some twitter thread which I can't even remember anymore.
I'm trying to learn Japanese but've been struggling with motivation. I've got the usual interests vidya (mostly FPS's or Resident Evil these days), anime, and manga.
