Lots of gamers here, how about a thread for games /qa/ could be playing together.

Have you watched anything neat on youtube or similar sites lately? Don't just link it, mention why you like it!
This is a re-enactment of the American Psycho dubs man scene with Weird Al and Huey Lewis. There's some very nice attention to detail and the humor is great. Somehow it's 7 years old and I never saw it.

This bothers me more than it should. Phone flashlights are generally some sort of LED, so if your phone is running out of power the light should just turn off and not flicker right? If your phone's flashlight is flickering that means something is wrong with the wiring or battery with your phone, right?
I realize it's not explicitly stated that her phone's battery died but that is what they were going for I'd imagine.

Post those crazy random GIFs/WEBMs that otherwise wouldn't get posted.
This one is obviously hilarious when you look at it, but (don't read until after you watch it) the way the cat immediately and effortlessly turned its forward momentum into rotation to stop the collision is a marvel of biology. No matter how many times I watch it I can't believe how it could do such a thing without even thinking about it. Wow.

Requesting Feedback

I'm currently working on a short nichijou animation. I'm adapting chapter 9 of helvetica standard I have made this test frame to test the style and technique. I wanted to hear an unbiased opinion from the frens over at quality anime what they think of this frame.
I've stared at it for too long. On one hand I really like how it came out. On the other I feel dissatisfaction, you can instantly tell its not a frame from nichijou, at least I can tell.

Your feedback is much appreciated, thank you in advance.
R:13 / I:3

Please send them the love they gave us

A month and half a week from now will be a year to the tragedy that took many passionate, talented, and loving Kyoani animators from us for good.
Please, when that day come, send love their way.
Fanarts, letters, or even a simple tweet could help show them how much the love they and their lost friends gave to us meant and motivate them to keep going even harder.

During the aftermath of the event, many people wanted to say something, but didn't know what to say. This ended up making a lot of the things said sound like people were already mourning the death of the studio, and not the animators.
A message like that could be quite discouraging to staff who is fighting to not let their friends die in vein. Remember when you give the staff at kyoani good words that to focus on the important things:
How much their work brought and still bring joy to you
How much they mean to you
and to never give up, and to keep going, and that you believe in them and they can keep fighting on!

People complain that cows produce co2 but isn't that actually a silly complaint? Because cows themselves don't actually produce it, grass uses the co2 in the atmosphere to grow and cows eat that grass thus they consume the co2 and that becomes part of them so they release it in to the atmosphere but they are only releasing what was in the atmosphere before and what they release is going to be absorbed by grass again and thus the cycle of life continues. It would not actually effect anything because cows and grass are operating in a loop.

It's a remake of the original, but without the ero elements. It's a shame that they removed it, but I'm sure it's worth another play and read!

kissu seasonal stream summer

So uhh, for those interested in watching seasonal anime every Saturday at 7PM with kissu friends, what are you wanting to watch for summer?
We have a lot of holdovers due to the many delays from COVID, so right now this is what's still being watched or already a long show to begin with:
Healin' Good Precure
Houkago Teibou Nisshi (fishing girls)
Brand New Animal (only a few episodes left)

Right now a show that I'm pretty confident in adding is Enen no Sh-… Fire Force because we watched the first season in Winter. I'm generally not too keen on watching sequels to things that the stream hasn't watched together, so no Re:zero 2.
R:3 / I:1
This anime's pretty chuuni… It seems like a perfect mahouka substitute while I wait for the upcoming season. Where does /qa/ stand on super chuunibyou power fantasies such as this?

I wasn't expecting much out of BNA at the start with other anime of similar premises mostly using them solely as a way to display and condemn racism. However with the later episodes I'm finding myself pleasantly surprised with the turn of events that muddies the plot while calling into question the morality of the characters. I'm still not entirely sure if I should believe in Alan since some of his actions have been fairly shady, like capturing the mayor.
R:71 / I:37
So /qa/, what are you watching?
R:13 / I:6
Recently reinstalled windows and forgot to backup my recettear save, now I'm going through it all again from scratch trying to get all the true cards again. I've got to say it's a pain in the ass trying to dungeon with Louie, and without all the NG+ bonuses or Merchant levels I'm really noticing the difficulty in trying to make the bills each week more than usual.
R:13 / I:2
Do you guys use VPNs or something to seed your torrents? I used to do it without any VPNs before when I had like one or two at a time, but I don't think I'll get away will seeding about 500 torrents at a time…

It appears that the UK will very likely put forth regulations for loot boxes in video games to make them gambling. If regulations like these continue to spread and become more common, it'll be interesting to see how this affects the gaming landscape. Particularly, it'll be interesting to see if and how mobile gacha games are affected. Besides the swift and obvious affect it'll have on AAA games like Fortnite, CoD, and Apex Legends, and FIFA it might but also affect card games like Hearthstone which is an interesting thought.

So, what does /qa/ think?
R:2 / I:0
Life's been good, since miraculously some manga in my special stash has actually been animated.

Centaur's Worries, Hinamatsuri and High Score Girl seemed like pipe dreams, Dagashi Kashi a little less so, but still they ended up getting animes. And watamote I guess too.

Now just wait and see if something like Mozuya-san gets the pass.

What is your stance on websites that require a phone number for registration?
I have a despise on any web service that requires an account in general, so I have never used any social media or forum in my life and all of my public writings are posted exclusively in anonymous boards.
If a web service has no other alternatives, I only use it if it requires at most an email, which I can register without giving out any real personal information. In rare occasions I use a disposable phone number, if it doesn't work I simply don't use that even when no other alternatives exist.

R:29 / I:7
What does /qa/ think of Cyberpunk vs Virtual Reality settings? Even though their tends to be faults with cyberpunk societies, in some way they still represented a vision of the future in which technology far surpassed what we have currently. And within those settings people live with this extraordinary tech that oftentimes if developed in current times could oftentimes completely reshape civilization. I'm not sure if it's just me, though it feels like people have become more complacent in the idea that society won't advance much further, that there aren't any cool visions of what's to come. With all the neat virtual reality scenarios out they seem more focused on giving up and escaping our current reality rather than being in awe of possibilities the future could hold. It doesn't feel as amazing as our own society becoming extremely advanced.

Apparently there's going to be an Inuyasha sequel, but man, it's centered on three little girls- the daughters of previous characters. Rumiko's work really shined in interactions between the genders and romance, but the sequel is just promoting three girls. So I read more about this and she only did the character designs of the three main characters and is not involved with anything else. What the hell?
It'd be good if I eat my words, but I don't have any faith in this project, and we'll find out in Fall of this year…

More than the fact of shifting cultures, my displease with the current state of imageboards stems from the fact their current resemblance is that of a frankensteinian kitbash wherein supposed innovations are embedded to vintage stylistic choices. Multiple file uploads and embedded video files on a burichan background! Catalogue view by default instead of page view! And as more time passes and more new users get attracted to imageboards the more these changes will persist as something normal. It is no wonder, then, that under such an environment the cultures experience drastic change and move on from discussions about individual statements into long blog rants that persist long since their expiration.

It was at this moment that my desire for imageboard decentralization had shifted into realization that imageboards as a format are something I no longer deem attractive.

Let's find some good fonts!
I love this website because a lot of the font websites are full of crappy ads, CAPTCHAs or of course paid fonts.
One of my favorite fonts is Neuton, I was introduced to it in Etrian Odyssey 4 and it's nice: https://www.dafont.com/neuton.font (I used it in some old 4/qa/ images)
Part of the reason I'm making this thread is I want to start making some banners, and good fonts really make a banner shine.
