We are about to have an influx of refugees from the shuttered 8chan, and this is probably inevitable.
However, this is not 8chan, and it's definitely not 4chon.
Participation is welcome, but a sudden sharp increase of alt-right material and garbage posts will not be tolerated.
Please leave your hitlers, seisatsu.pngs, burning crosses, and shitpost floods at the door.
Even on /ot/, we expect some level of quality in our posts. Please familiarize yourselves with our rules and guidelines, and make sure to lurk before posting.
Also, apologies for deleting the /4chon/ refugee thread outright, I overreacted. There's nothing wrong with such a thread as long as it doesn't cause me too much of a headache.
Enjoy your stay and don't be a dick.

How has anime/nip stuff changed your personality? What were you like after you really got into it compared to before?

In elementary school I probably spent more time in the office than in class. I almost compulsively did stuff to tick the teacher off and she wasn't actually that great considering how poorly she dealt with me. Around middle school I started watching typical slice of life crap. I started comparing myself to the characters. They were polite, courteous and thoughtful. They just seemed better than me, so I started trying to emulate them. It wasn't an immediate change, but I grew to be a lot more respectful of adults and in control of myself. It sort of put me on a better path. I did also start noticing how much more freedom characters seemed to have compared to me in my suburban environment, which i'm still kind of bitter about, but I wouldn't consider getting more perspective a bad thing.


I adopted quite a bit of japanese mentality, prioritizing harmony of a group now over self-affirmation. It's a double edged sword though. I'm bad at reading the air and can't handle arguments or direct criticism well.

Ooh this is something I've thought about a lot. I think it has definitely changed my life in a pretty dramatic way.

Like you, I found that slice of life stuff made me try to be a better version of myself. Everyone in those shows maintains a very positive attitude, are kind to the people around them, and society reciprocates them for it. It made me more like that and has helped me out with making friends. Kindness goes a long way.

I also think my sense of humour has been changed dramatically. Like, Japanese humour is really freaking weird, and I feel like those who didn't grow up with it might not "get it" if I show it to them. Western stuff doesn't really do it for me any more.

I also just feel like some of the Japanese mentality has permeated my mind in some way or another. I watched way too much anime during my formative years, so I'm sure I act just a bit weird for a westerner. Even just repeating stupid anime mannerisms. Who knows.

>prioritizing harmony of a group now over self-affirmation.
i wonder if these two thought processes are mutually exclusive. sometimes harmony or what is best for a group sometimes feel like it can lead to self-affirmation. i can see what you mean, though.
