So I've been watching a bunch of documentaries lately and was wondering what documentaries you anons have watched and liked. This blog has been my favorite for finding docus so far: http://ponury.tumblr.com/

A documental about what could be the very first punk rock band of the world, active from 1964 to 1966 in FUCKING PERU. Pretty rad considering the time and specially the place. They remained pretty obscure until a few years ago.

Searching for Sugar man

The story of Sixto Rodriguez, a Detroit musician that recorded a few songs in the 70's and then disappeared from the sight of the world. He remained obscure and forgotten in the US, but he hit it pretty great in South Africa, becoming some kind of Elvis. The thing is, he never knew about it, until 1998 when fans contacted him to come to South Africa and play.


This guy makes documentals about art around all the world, his stuff is pretty good and interesting. This was my favorite one.

I'll go ahead and post some Vice docs I've seen. It's a shame the ones in Japan mostly have English only speakers as the host. That doesn't really work well though generally its shot well.

Sorry for it all being sex related this is just what I've been clicking through. Keep in mind some of these are NSFW.

The sex/dating industry in Japan

School girls being sold in Japan

VR sex industry

Sex work in Canada


A documentary about artificial sex/romance objects from 2005, before VR etc. really took off. The second half is especially interesting where we start to see some of the enthusiasts. See if you can spot the Azumanga plushes in the last guy's room.

Thank you kind anon *;-;*

I watched the sugar man one. It was really interesting, thank you!

I watched the first two; They were pretty good. I remember there was a vice docu where the host wasn't Japanese but was fluent? I think it was the one about DDR.

Also some other decent vice docus:
The Nepalese Honey That Makes People Hallucinate

Living Amid Graves & Bones: The Philippines' Cemetery Slums

Hey guys. I was wondering if someone could help me out, and I figured you guys might have some info.

I remember from a few years back seeing a thread on /x/ I think on 4chan about a japanese hikikomori girl livestreaming 24/7 in her apartment. I don't remember ever seeing her leave her apartment, talk to the camera, or act as if she was being filmed in any way.

She usually just layed around in a pile of blankets or browsed her computer. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I doubt someone will, but I just remembered it for the first time in years and realized how surreal and similar to Yume Nikki it was. I wish I had further info.



>Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I doubt someone will
Why? I think it's actually fairly known among people who spent some time in imageboards. I mean, I remember seeing it in a bunch of places after all.


Are you perhaps thinking of Chip-chan?


Thanks a ton, anon! Sadly it looks like after 13 years, she just stopped broadcasting two months ago.

Uboachan, I'm looking for a scary story
and I don't just mean your standard ghost story, I mean something truly horrifying.

Something existential

What is it you fear the most, more than anything?
Are you afraid of death?
Do you have some sort of horrifying concept you wish to share with us, such as say… a mirror that shows a reflection of your greatest failure and how your life could've been different.

give me something bone chilling
give me what really keeps you awake at night

I'm sorry, I know its a horrible perversion of mathematics. I did my best.


I actually fucking loved it. Wish I could have made my space one sound as desperate as yours.


Really? Thank you! I thought yours was really good as well, we wrote very different kinds of desperation.

You have lived your life thus far very happy. The moment of true freedom has finally approached it is your time to live.

As you breathe a fresh air your life passes by you. A lifetime momentum of continuous equilibrium passes by you as you look towards the stars.

You remember every EXACT thing that made your life extraordinary and you have developed your mindset in a way, shape, and form that understands your understanding.

This very moment of breathing, you suddenly feel very negligible. As if a black hole is bending your understanding. YOUR EMOTION becomes E-MOTION.

The barrier of true freedom, suddenly becomes a smile. You fake your smile while you feel this E-MOTION (separation from reality) and from that instantaneous moment on, e-motion as if you are drowning into a ocean. The debts drag you as if you cannot resist this unknown force of gravity. You THINK you cannot escape because your e-motion manipulates your understanding as if you are unable to move. And this manipulated understanding has made it so that you cannot control your mind. From then on, you live a short life consumed by pure happiness that has condensed fear into your lonely soul.

It's a dark night on the mountain, barely illuminated by the light of the starting synodic month moon. You swing merrily over an ideal rocking chair, performing a periodic motion and oscillating with a constant amplitude of 2m.
The equation for said movement is as follows:

x(t) = Acos(ωt+ϕ) (1.0)

Where each symbols is your:
A = 2m: Amplitude
ω = 2πF: Angular Frequency (where F is the frequency)
ϕ = 0: Phase Angle

The instant velocity, that is dx(t)/dt is as follows:

v(t) = -Aωsin(ωt+ϕ) (1.1)

You consider the available variables at your hands. You ponder about it deeply. You have a mission. Today is the day your dreams come true. As you gaze over at the stars in the sky, burning at thousand of light years away, you realize that they're cheering for you as they collapse their own nuclei with their overwhelming mass and weight. You swear upon those compressed atoms that their efforts won't go to waste. Thus you clench your teeth once again. You regret not having a good math education. The problem you have to solve isn't easy, but it isn't hard either considering the standard levels of college.

Trying not to fall asleep at this odd hour so I don't wake up at 1am again.

I was watching anime but I think I'm to tired to focus on that right now.


Nah, just hearing music and browsing some image boards and facebook, I think I'm going to read some manga later, or read some art book my mom recomended, I don't know


Nah, I'm so lazy and I don't want to get tired.


>I'm so lazy

It sounds like you are already tired.

Ah, it seems like I was a bit too hasty in giving an opinion. Sorry for that, I'm used to encourage anons so I tend to misread things a lot.

It sounds more like anon is taking it easy but I suppose it rings a different bell in everyone.

Can we have a movie recommendation thread? Anything goes, from animated to live action, from romance to hippy surrealism, from the oldest piece of shit to the newest cheesy CGI bullshit. Just warn people about these things, and try to provide a small text about why you liked it (if possible). Bonus if it isn't mainstream/it's rather obscure and/or forgotten old classicals.

>Original title:

かぐや姫物語 [Kaguya Hime Monogatari]
>English Title:
The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
Takahata, Isao (Yes, that sado fuck), Studio Ghibli.

A movie based in, unsurprisingly, Taketori Monogatari, or known as The Tale of The Bamboo Cutter. If you played touhou, yes, it's the same Kaguya, but without danmaku. It's actually interesting to note that not many people (i.e. touhoufags) actually know the story behind Kaguya, and that those pieces of shit barely understand the plot behind Eiyashou.

The traditional animation style is really nice, and I liked how Takahata-sensei decided to make the story more dramatic than the original, focusing in the bittersweet despair that a written destiny can't be changed no matter how hard you try is. It's also really nice because it illustrates (to a certain degree) the life in Japan in the Heian period, with mixes rather smoothly with the colors and the overall feeling of the animation. Guaranteed weeboo and non-weeb satisfaction at a well-told story with peaks of joy and sadness.

Yeah, it's funny because they don't know jack shit about it. Some even believe it's a character created 100% by ZUN. God fucking damn it.
Touhou has a really good lore and universe though, too bad most of the westernpigs fans doesn't seem to see beyond "muh waifu" and memes.

Have I said how great Japanese movies from the 50s/60s are? Let's not forget the 80's, but let's leave that for another time.


風林火山 [Fuurinkazan]
>English title
"Samurai Banners", but that shit is horrible, though I can understand why they chose it. Fuurinkazan translates as "Fast as the wind, silent as the woods, daring as a fire, and inmovable as a mountain", or something along those lines. You can't make a short title out of it.
Inagaki Hiroshi-sensei.

Anyway, the movie is an epic drama set in the Sengoku period, and it narrates the life of the Yamamoto Kensuke-Bushou throughout his aid in the campaigns of Takeda Shingen no Daimyo. Includes a lot of fun, and it's actually a movie that manages to illustrate the living in during the Sengoku era. Lots of history, if you're a piece of shit weeb like me you will love this crap. You don't know how japan was during the 1500's? Checked, you will learn. You don't know who the fuck were the Suwa? Check, you will know. You don't know anything about the most some of the most iconic figures of Japanese history? Checked, you will know.
Not to mention that it's also one of the greatest classicals ever. Honestly, I consider it a must-see. Actually, most of Inagaki-sensei's movies are really good, try to check them out.

Isao Takahata is underrated. Too many people act like Miyazaki is the only one who makes films at Ghibli sometimes. Here's two great movies by Isao:

Grave of the Fireflies (1988) is about two kids during WWII in Japan becoming orphans and having to deal with the domestic battles the war created. I think this is a must see movie. It's heart breaking and reminds you that war affects more than just the people fighting in it.

Only Yesterday (1991) is very different from most Ghibli films.
From wikipedia:
>Only Yesterday explores a genre traditionally thought to be outside the realm of animated subjects: a realistic drama written for adults, particularly women. The film was a surprise box office success, attracting a large adult audience of all genders and becoming the highest-grossing Japanese film of the year in the country.

It's a great watch if you like drama centered around very human things.


Haha, don't take me wrong. I agree with you, Takahata-sensei is underrated as fuck. When I said he's a sado fucker it was because I was precisely thinking in Hotaru no Haka (Grave of the Fireflies). I also liked Only Yesterday. He focuses much more in emotion emphasis to develop and tell a story rather than simply telling it with peaks of suspense like Miyazaki. Which makes it more realistic, easier to relate with.

The problem is that most people only account ghibli as equal to Miyazaki because he's the one behind most of their movies. I personally don't think he's that great. In my opinion, he focuses too much in fantasy settings and leaves the story half baked most of the time. Take Howl's Moving Castle for example, I didn't understand half shit, it felt like a story started somewhere at some point in the past and you only glimpse bits of it, and he only threw there some romance to fill the void. I mean, maybe it's not that bad for a kid's movie, but I liked Mononoke Hime because, while it was kid-oriented, it still had a plot that didn't feel like "Well, yeah, I scribbled this last night after polishing my Marx figure, what do you think?" "Oh, well, it's you, Miyazaki-o-kami, it surely is good". Or Chihiro no Kamikakushi. It's like he rushes to tell you a story before the movie time runs out.

Nausicää is probably the best story he's ever worked on (and it isn't even perfect), and his last movie Kaze Tachinu, since it's based on WWII (therefore, realism instead of fantasy), but I haven't watched it yet so I can't tell.
