not off the top of my head, but I'm sure I've come across a couple before.
You could try looking in yearly anime charts, there are many floating around on the wired.

Have you tried listening to series-specific music while reading manga?

I'm currently reading Neon Genesis Evangelion and wanted to attempt this because there's a lot of overlap with the tv series allowing to cue specific tracks as they happened in the anime. I found the emotional response to be significantly greater, the soundtrack is very moving so it could only add to those moments. Surprisingly, it even felt as if I was watching the series rather than reading something. The spur of the soundtrack probably made me adjust panel pacing to coincide with how the music directed the animation. In contrast some of the parts that I had gone through without the soundtrack felt more stale than what the show had. I only did this for significant moments, knowing what tracks had to be played, so mostly battle scenes and self-analysis segments. I guess if there was some generic ambience this could also be applied to less symbolic parts of the story, leading to while no a bigger impact but simply more immersion. There's no such material in the Evangelion albums however. One thing to note is that the volume at which the music gets played should definitely be lower than at what one usually listens music to, it's too distracting otherwise.

Evidently in most cases this is not an option. But in my experience playing unrelated music doesn't cut it, the emotional tone requires appropriate material and not something that randomly finds its way to the ear. In the end I appreciate the immersion gained and emotional impact received. I'll continue reading NGE manga this way. It's what I'm after.

The experience also got me thinking about how this could be streamlined and made less interruptive. Most of the issues crop up due to music overextending the scenes which makes for a less than perfect experience. It would probably be more appropriate if the music faded in relation to page numbers viewed or transitioned to other sounds that are relevant to later pages. Sometimes the compositions don't quite line up with important panels. Due to unpredictable reading behaviour this is unavoidable and can only be minimized by playing music which isn't arranged to elicit severely specific moments. Soundtrack ending before the end of a segment should probably be kept looping.
Technically the solution could be as simple as having metadata file packaged along with audio tracks and manga pages, detailing at which page spreads specific tracks should be cued. A comic reader application would then have to only mix the tracks and follow the cue file.

Would love to hear other opinions on this as I can't find anyone sharing similar experiences on the net.

It could work theoretically, but it sure sounds like a complicated thing to set up per file, and you wouldn't really be able to come up with something which sits well with every person. I think the ideal would be to have a series of standard "profile" names (e.g. "Calm", "Battle", "Sad") along with maybe a few more particular sound effect profiles ("Swords clanging", "Running", "Harsh wind"), and the reader can look at the metadata file to choose what sorts of sounds and playlists to choose from for each page. From there, you can add more advanced controls like fadeouts, speed, or volume adjustments.

A big issue in the way of a system like this is that you can't just pass these files around by theirselves and tell people to add them to their archives if they like. Some scans like to cut out the first white page, or put a credits page at the end of every chapter, or join every single fucking page and have this awkward huge wide gap inbetween the panels which you can tell wasn't actually there originally (fuck, I hate JJCAT), and the numbering index would just be thrown off entirely. I guess you could distribute versions especially for every group's scans, but even to a very dedicated group, something like that would get tiring fast. Plus, given that it'd just seem like an annoying gimmick to a significant amount of people, it just wouldn't be adopted.

One thing you've got to realise about the common comic book archive is that is has no metadata at all. I think some readers have the capability to display TL notes if it's attached in a file, but that's it. They're so severely limited that there isn't even any kind of metadata to say that any image is a part of a two-page span. What actually happens is that the reader checks the aspect ratio of the image, and if it's more wide than long, then it's treated as a "double page" which'll be used to override whatever number of images you're reading at the moment. As far as I can tell, it doesn't even check the filename. For a while I thought something like a reader that can "hot patch" a scanlation over a copy of a raw manga while you're reading could be nice, but something like that just isn't going to happen as long as people keep using Honeyview and fucking PDF readers for their comics.

Don't take it the wrong way, but doesn't the ordinary adventure game/visual novel already suit this criteria? Though I guess your idea is to improve comics that already exist, and not just start writing your own NGE fan VNs.

Small places do have especially fragile ecosystems, but it also seems the biggest existential threat to them are lack of activity
Maybe it's due to my limited experience, but there rarely seems to be a magical 'balance' point for imageboards: either they're next to dead with like 5 posts during a week, or are 4chan/8chan. I do remember Pooshlmer having a nice balance when I used that a lot, but it seems, much like how the rest of the internet is now, everyone gathers themselves to one or two sites and won't explore outside of them.

Though thinking of it now, a good example of how people not lurking can destroy a community: I think a good recent example is DangerU. Being listed on Google Play strained that place, and the Russian kid posting cheese pizza links devastated it. Now it has a captcha to protect itself, even on /burg/. The site's owners are still working on it and adding features, but I remember them admitting to the userbase that they don't hang around the site as much because it's not fun as it was before.

it didnt used to be like that though. Like you said, there was some time at which pooshlmer had a decent balance. I remember 7chan being slower than 4chan by a good bit, but not at all dead. The same with some forums.
Maybe part of it is that the idea now is that a website is a product, rather than just a social space.

All bets were off once those imaginary internet points people love to mock were magically made in to actual dollars. It's why people getting kicked off the major platforms for violating the TOS has been regarded as censorship by the masses: They COULD just make their own site, use the budding decentralized solutions to get their message across in a way that can't be removed, but you won't get as many points that way, and without those points you don't get money. We can have droves of YouTube alternatives but they don't matter because the 'content creators' can't get paid that way.

(Side note: I'm beginning to feel ill whenever I hear the word 'content' used to refer to anything on the internet. That word really lays bare that everything on the big sites are meant to 'sell' stuff to people, even stuff as trashy as the 'commentary community' output on YouTube).

Despite 4chan folk wanting to distance themselves from reddit by pointing out that they don't have a karma system, the populace somehow managed to turn simply getting replies in to their own form of internet points. Very few people actually want to discuss things, they just want to sell you their bad humor and "ironic" outrage, with the payment being attention. The most basic function of a discussion board is now regarded as a transaction. That's bad.

>"ironic" outrage, with the payment being attention

You're right. I realised that I wasn't going to reply to your post, since I generally don't reply to posts I agree with, but I reply to posts I disagree with. I don't reply to bait, or try not to, but you make me think.
But in truth, the soul of discussion is some element of disagreement, even if minor.

I regularly interact with an online group tied to a hobby of mine, when they're not discussing the hobby they shit up not only a certain board on 4chan, but other places as well. They compete with each other who can get the most replies and who can get people upset the most. I watch in suffering, knowing that nothing I say will stop them from engaging in such destructive behavior.

Is there a way to deal with such troll groups? I don't know.

I don't really deliberately look for something to watch, that is unless I am extremely bored. And even then I don't necessarily look for what's currently airing, but instead just google some of the genres I like and then see if there's anything visually appealing to me with an interesting story to go with it. I put 'visually appealing' first because I just know it's no use for me to look into anything even remotely KyoAni-looking, that just isn't my cup of tea.

At the moment I'm watching Tonegawa, which at first I didn't like because it lacked everything I loved in Kaiji, but that show really has grown on me. Definitely recommend that one. I'm also watching the third season of Shingeki No Kyojin.
The other ones aren't from this season.

I have been trying really hard to get into seasonal stuff for the past 2 years, but I just haven't found anything the clicks—end up dropping them after like 2 episodes. Could just be depression dunno, because I lost interest in a lot of my favorite pastimes.
But I have found that old shows from the early to mid 2000's really fill in that void. Really enjoyed this somewhat obscure one called Kachou Ouji. Been having fun with romcoms as well, currently it's Lovely Complex.

It's very similar for me in that current stuff rarely does it for me anymore, but I very much enjoy watching things from the late 80s to mid 2000s. I'm pretty sure that, at least for me, this is because I have grown up mostly with shows that came from those eras, so there's this sort of "feeling at home" sensation which massively ups the quality of whatever I'm watching.
I just really dislike most things modern; digital animation, current artstyles, you name it. Not because it's necessarily bad in general, but because I'm so drawn to what I have seen and experienced in my childhood, the things that essentially shaped and ultimately make up what is now my taste.

I don't want to unnecessarily expand on my personal philosophics, but I believe this to be completely natural and unrelated to depression or frustration, at least regarding the origins of said feelings. I mean this as a word of comfort, of course.
Good to hear you were able to find something you like.

there are three green plant leaves in some light brown mush, and a heart caricature and Bun Bun's name (as a signature?) underneath it, on a tan brown rectangular leaf with one vertical fold at half and two horizontal folds at each third, which fold the rectangular leaf into 6 subleaf regions in a 2*3 array.
these are the salient features i noticed.
this letter is read to the audience as
"Dear Cinnamon Bun,
I have a dog now. his name is Cinnamon Bun.
-Bun Bun"
however i feel like this is a rough translation of the meaning conveyed to Cinnamon Bun by the letter. what information could this translation have lost? how much of this translation was of the content intended by Bun Bun and how much of it is translating the incidental, accidental, formal, or other nonprimary aspects of the letter? also, what other features of the letter could be important in Cinnamon Bun's reading and interpretation of the letter?
