Well, it's a room. It's got a few walls, a window, a door. There's a closet too. There's also a bathroom outside my door. It's in a not too large building, but not a small one either. It's definitely somewhere.

I thought there were plenty of quality pantyshots in the episode (sukumizu shots technically I guess). Next one seems like it'll be pretty lighthearted so I'm looking forward to some nice fanservice.

CG is getting better, they said. You'll hardly notice it, they said.

I wonder...
20 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Please explain.


There in nothing in this cut that look inherintly 3dcg, visually.
But since you can't tell by seeing here is the rundown of technical reasons
1)they don't have a 3d model of her. Not only did it never appear, no organic thing in this show had a 3d model.
2)there are unique objects and clothing on her, which again no way anyone would spend time modeling for one cut.
3)This cut has less than 20 frames, maybe even less than 10. Sure, you can use a basic 3d character to figure out the morion, but that's too much effort for a cut this short.
4) There is boiling and fairy obvious frames where objects shift in size and shape
This shot 100% had no CG in its creation.


I don't mean to press the issue further, but I'd really like to know what the people credited as working on 3DCG were doing each episode, then? Are they really only being credited for the windmill in the OP?...


I find it a little suspicious that for every episode there's a 3DCG credit with the exception of episode 6, so I suppose it's possible that might've been a transcription error?


I wasn't talking about the OP, the windmills I mentioned were the ones when they were overlooking the abyss. I have watched it quite a while ago. I don't remember every instance of 3dcg, I probably didn't even identify most instance. They take a backseat role, they are easy to miss if not in the foreground.
In the kill la kill documentary (part two about 10 minutes in), They are talking about the CGI cuts in kill la kill. Hiroyuki Imaishi says that he treats the CG animators like every other animators.
From the looks of it, and I could be wrong, for most anime productions the question of should we use CG is answered by "do we have CG staff". The next question in line seems to be "is the director interested". After that the question seems to be "do we have a specific role we want 3dcg to fill", the things in this category would be anime like macross, yuru camp, or ssssgridman, which decided to do most of the mechanical work in 3dcg.
Only then the question goes to "we need X by X how do we do it" or " this will take unrealistically too much time that we cannot afford".
The one example of an anime with the final question would be violet evergarden
After taking a month and a half to make a 45 second preview for Violet evergarden, Somebody in charge stepped their foot down and asked that the typewriters will be done in 3DCG.

Bottom line, these guys are probably credited for minor elements here and there and probably they weren't approached for anything in episode 6.


Yeah, I'm aware you were talking about the windmills in the first episode, but what I meant was that the only clearly visible piece of 3DCG throughout the show was the windmills in the OP. That in turn made me wonder what the people credited as working on 3DCG actually did, especially given their apparent lack of being credited for episode 6.

What's your problem with SSE? It's far more stable and I can't imagine going back to the old one because of that. I'm not sure how many graphical improvements in base SSE still matter with modding and ENBs, but there's probably something there, too.
Also I think I'm gonna start mod blogging here so I have something to post about on kissu as I obsessively look at lists and data and stuff

You need to buy a Nintendo online subscription, and then I think you have to share your friend code to be able to visit other people's islands.


New leaf was a better game than New Horizons. I've only played New Leaf for a long time though. I haven't played the older games yet, so I have no opinion on them.




A problem I have with Genshin is the lack of content, I'm relatively early in and the quests are drying up already, there are not really that many characters and I don't really like what they have much either. There are going to be seven nations each with their own story and presumably roster of characters but this is all a long way in the future. Maybe I will come back to it in a few years.


do you have a list of games you played? i started working on writing down every game i remember spending a significant amount of time on, it's taking me ages to finish

In a world in which imageboards are supposedly falling out of favor and 4chan sucks up all the activity, how is it that there is still a good proportion of younger users on alternative imageboards? Obviously for foreign language ones they have their language niches, but for the English speaking world most would assume that the youth are first exposed to 4chan, and then its much less active alternatives (if they even learn of their existence). For those turned off of 4chan, I'd assume most probably wouldn't look towards similar forms of communication, would they? The appeal of an Anonymous way to share ones thoughts seems like it would be fleeting to youth grown on social media, used to being the center of attention or within a group of identifiable persons. Is it a passing interest in that which they find unique, or a genuine desire for this style of online interaction?

If a genuine desire exists, that isn't just for endorphin surges like 4chan offers, then how do more niche imageboards go about capitalizing on this group?

>I'd assume most probably wouldn't look towards similar forms of communication, would they?
Clearly some do.
>The appeal of an Anonymous way
It's a non-factor for some. Too many who've doxxed themselves act similarly in either platform.
>used to being the center of attention or within a group of identifiable persons
Not really the experience of a normal user. The normal social media user gets no attention, they give likes but hardly receive any. Visit an artist or a politician's twitter, check the comments section of a post of theirs, scroll down enough and without a fault you'll find tens if not hundreds or thousands of people with zero likes and single digit followers on their profile. They'd easily get as much or more attention on an imageboard. They're closer to lurkers talking to themselves than to attention whores.
>Is it a passing interest in that which they find unique, or a genuine desire for this style of online interaction?
Strange question. They may be attracted to something present in multiple platforms regardless of format. They may not even think about the format. If it's something else you mean, then elaborate on what that style is.
>then how do more niche imageboards go about capitalizing on this group?
Same way you go about capitalizing on anyone else, with content that interests them. But there isn't some particular new movement that's interested in imageboards, so it's not something you can generalize.


Young person here, I like imageboards because they are anonymous and aren't focused on getting likes and attention.

t. 21, started when I was 18
Imageboards provide a place of real interaction.
The "bump to the top" system boards use allows for diverse ideas and creates real interaction and priority
Anonymity directs the discussion towards what is being said, not who said it. It allows people to say what they want to say without fear of it being brought up or used to dismiss them later. I matured a lot from that. I acted in ways I wouldn't want archived, I felt bad, and I grew to become more aware and learn how to deal with things better.
The rotating doors of imageboards and their blank slate nature allow diverse opinions from all walks of life
These make the imageboard so special. It allows for conversations on topics unlike any other place , it allows real discussion with all walks of life.
However, they come with several weaknesses
1) crazies, idiots, and assholes are super effective at bringing down the feel of the place, and are pretty much impossible to remove once they set their sites on a place
2) Cannot handle floods at all. On comers immediately change the site irreversibly. This is why I think every board and every site needs a sticky. You have to have a 10 commandments of sorts to immediately establish the feel and target of the board.

>how do we bring more people and make them stay

Active and interesting discussion. There should be at least a couple posts a day, discussion should be insightful, people should read the posts and reply to them, even if it's with just a couple of words. There should be some center for creative outputs and community such as drawthreads and there HAS to be willingness to discuss ideas, even if they seem obviously false or misguided.
People are often so busy avoiding bait that they avoid legitimate discussion.

> For those turned off of 4chan, I'd assume most probably wouldn't look towards similar forms of communication, would they?

Mostly true. Most people just use reddit or twitter. I've run into a number of people who are interested imageboards, but most of them tend to either be of the "le epic memester" variety, or that they browse /pol/. Most know of 4chan, but don't actively browse and are generally turned off because it's aura of being a haven for shitposters and pedos.

>The appeal of an Anonymous way to share ones thoughts seems like it would be fleeting to youth grown on social media, used to being the center of attention or within a group of identifiable persons.

This really isn't the case. Some people do use twitter and instagram to blog, but it's not really that important. It's just something to do, really. The "groups of identifiable persons" that people actually use are just group chats for texting, although that's somewhat shifted towards using discord. Outside of blogging, people really only use twitter, instagram, tiktok, etc for sharing memes and stuff they've found.

>Is it a passing interest in that which they find unique, or a genuine desire for this style of online interaction?

For myself, I suppose it's a bit of both. I generally dislike all of the previously mentions forms of communication. Imageboards -- so long as they're not too large -- are also just a lot more laid back. There's not too much showboating or trying to be recognized for witty comments and stuff. For 4chan and other fast imageboards, that's not so much the case, but I really don't browse those places to begin with.

Is there a bigger tard than this dumbass? Seriously, throughout the entirety of Shion's arc he kept pulling off more and more amazing feats of stupidity. Walking into the dungeon with Shion, always believing her to be possessed and somehow fixable, then in his utmost act of idiocy going outside alone to meet her when he knew she was out of it.
