There's a bit of a tradition in logging in gikopoi and hanging out for New Year's Eve as it goes through various timezones. There's a chance this will be the last time it ever happens because of the flash brouhaha.
Who's going to join me?
Anyone here currently living in japan?
If so, how did you do it?
I'm recently considering to move there, my life here is just not going where I wanted it to go. I'm about to drop out of my studies, and I don't have any direction at all after that. I'm just getting older and older and the way this is going I'm either going to off myself in a few years or ill work some stupid job at a burger restaurant or something. And if that's the case I might aswell do that in japan right?
What I been considering is that I would go there on a tourist visa which would give me 90 days to find a job there, and then change it to a work visa which would increase the period up to 5 years. My japanese is about N2-3 so that should suffice but obviously I still have to brush up on it.
But it does seem very risky. I'm not sure how easy it is to find work as a foreigner since they don't seem to be too liked there.
Just felt like writing all this I don't know. If you got some input or whatever feel free.
For decades, the "nerd" or "otaku" stereotype has been embedded into popular culture and cartoons. In some instances, these references to socially awkward hobbyists have been used as a means for writers to vent about fans they don't like (ie; the Animaniacs "Please Please Please Get A Life Foundation"). This thread will be a set of examples to nerd/otaku characters that have been written into cartoons, comics, video games, etc. If you wish to contribute, by all means post some examples (preferably with the source)
There was another thread but I couldn't find it, maybe lost in the migration. This guy's art is pretty nice, and he seems to put something out every other day: https://www.pixiv.net/users/5753136

Here's an English subtitled "The Making of Nadia":
I also remember seeing one for an eroge studio where they had the interviewer girl dress up in a bunny outfit, but I can't seem to find it anymore. It might've been elf or Illusion, anyone recognize it?

Arranged roughly in order of personal preference, ascending:
Any torrent I download, I seed forever. In my opinion, the High Definition Scene-Quality® rips that get uploaded to trackers don't deserve this treatment. To explain my stance, I'll do up a little timeline of anime encodes from broadcast to shelf.
1. An anime studio edits and masters the next episode of their running franchise and sends it to different broadcast stations across the nation. It's probably in 480 or 720p, or somewhere in-between.
2. Japan, being a small, dense island nation, has network infrastructure ahead of anywhere else in the world. Looking at the Wikipedia article, it seems like the NHK offers both a 4K and an 8K television channel. I don't think they do anime so that fact isn't strictly relevant, but basically 1080p is their "Standard Definition" at this point. So those probably 480 or 720p or somewhere in-between masters are stretched out to that resolution before:
3. That new 1080p upscale is broadcast to each locale's local television station. Configurations vary wildly at the local level, so you'll have a bunch of anime video streams all butchered in their own, unique ways. Effects can include:
- Another round of rescaling (up or down)
- Conversion to interlaced video
- Filtering to try to make the video look less awful
- Putting the audio through a vocoder because it's funny
- Somebody spilt coffee on the film reel
4. Somebody in Japan records this broadcast through their cassette player. Both the television and the V.C.R. rescale and re-encode this video yet again according to their own default settings.
5. This cassette is scanned (okay, I'm probably being a little cruel here. I'm sure the Japanese use CDs already.) and uploaded to a blog somewhere as a .wmv in a 20-part rar archive, just as the Scene Roolz say.
6. A budding translacoder group and/or Crunchyroll downloads this file and crops it to its relevant sections, HOPEFULLY keeping the opening and credits sequences in tact. Then, they upscale this final 240p file to 1080p again and try as hard as they can to make it look good. They succeed more or less, but not without substantial losses. The remaining pixels make a desperate run onto the evacuation copter and are lifted to the safety of their home torrent tracker. As a sick joke, the translacoders might decide to convert the audio to FLAC or something.
(7. Another group picks this file up, upscales it to 4K, changes all instances of the phrase "Transform!" to "Henshin!", comes up with some funny and creative chapter titles at their favourite parts, puts their name on it, and uploads it to a public tracker.)
Also, the translation group embeds their Google-translated
subtitles/Crunchyroll's Bing-translated subtitles into the file as a bloated ASS with unnecessary rainbow effects on their JIBUN WOOOOOOOOOOO romanji karaoke lyrics and they tell you that this "translation" only comes as a set with that Babylonian artefact of a video file, but that's an entirely separate issue.
I'm okay with watching seasonal anime that's been put through that whole mincer because it's not that much worse than catching it on live TV, but with the quality of the video combined with the sheer ego of these translacoder groups really makes me want to avoid giving them what they want. I'm not going to commit to downloading a torrent file like that when I can wait for an untouched scan of the DVD/BD (which goes through one or less two layers of Digitally-Enhanced Remaster® fuckery) to release instead.
You can find these on any choice of torrent tracker, but it's probably better to stick to public ones like Nyaa, Pantsucat, and Tokyotosho, unless you want to hold onto those things for long, for their sentimental value or whatever.
Look up "watch anime (anime name) free" in your favourite search engine or whatever and you'll probably find one.
Take web streams, but without those disadvantages. Unfortunately, most with the technical know-how will tell people to torrent it instead of rehosting it theirselves.
Use very specific search engine queries. What you'll find is either:
People who misconfigured their webservers and are sharing their own files by accident ("Directory of...")
A web frontend for an FTP server. I think a site called "weebftp.org" used to have this, but it's completely down now.
Both of these are documented on the "opendirectories" Reddit page as people find them, if you don't have a lethal allergy to that site. Alternatively, if you're willing to go through pages and pages of crap and DMCA notifications, you can use a couple of simple search engine templates to find what you're looking for. Here's a website that used to be hosted at "scrpe.com", just paste the data into your address bar: https://pastebin.com/5df2mEa7
Just be warned, it makes its queries through Google.
Be a member of some kind of secret society.
Channels that host an XDCC service tend to be somewhat elitist, so don't be surprised if you run into metadata/file comments indicating rip authorship, and even watermarks in the more extreme cases.
I try to avoid XDCC, but I think Anime-Sharing has a couple of bots for it.
There you have it, hopefully this helps some people out.

dojin.co went down sometime. It had a pretty good collection of download links for dojin albums, and critically, GENRE TAGS.
Without it I dont know of any way to sift through dojin music. The touhou lossless collection is just a file tree with /artist/album/song.
Pepole were shilling a d**c*rd when google led me to a reddit dedicated to the site in the course of looking for info on it being down, systematically using a chatlog as a dump for links is fucking repugnant even when its not obese webshit.
wowaka passed away due to an acute heart failure. He was only 31.
While browsing the web late last year, I came across the website of a Pascal otaku. He's really into the language! He has so much info that he's collected, on his website, and he even wrote his own compiler for standard Pascal, written in standard Pascal and adapted from a 1976 compiler.
What's the most unusual or niche otaku you've seen? Whose enthusiasm fills you yourself with enthusiasm?
