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.

I'm also very lonely.
On this same saturday night.
We do need a good blowing.
But it'd be our demise.

I like vaginas only.
Although i'm just a spectator.
Eroges make me less lonely.
Not else left for narrators.

By no country i abide.
All the same and to blame.
Just close your eyes,
And there i reside.

Elementary level speech manipulation, pathetic.


Nice. Maid throwing a tantrum in her discord channel over this thread, going on a rant about how uboachan is a "trash community" and shitting on Sei. After she… made this thread in the first place, lmao.

Also denying that she went out of her way to try and strong-arm Sei into making her discord the "official" uboachan one. Seems she is trying to renege on that.


File: 1473004763647.png (5.48 KB, 367x381, nocorrelation.png)

By that logic every time some discordfag came here to discuss their drama and we complained we were the drama queens right?
Hypocrite, it's very clear the community doesn't want shit like OP's post here and that's all about it.
Let the outsiders have drama with outsiders.


No one's forcing no one to stay in this community, besides, insulting Sei every time your butt tickles isn't going to solve shit…
Blaming others for every problem around you and thinking you're perfect isn't going to bend reality for others.


Thread is locked.
New guideline will read:
Please keep all off board drama to the medium which they occurred in.

I had an interesting thought Ubuu
tell me a story of the time you met someone who made a horrible first impression but turned out to actually be a very decent human being, someone you completely misjudged

There was once someone I met in a small gaming community, a core member of the community, he announced his presence by yelling at the top of his lungs "PENIS PENIS PENIS" into his mic the moment he joined the channel. He was never for a moment serious unless it was about working out at which point he could become professor creatine and give you a half hour lecture. He came off as kind of an obnoxious douche.

Now, one time I caused one of the game servers to crash (it wasn't really my fault but still) and apparently a lot of the community was pretty upset with me, while I wasn't around, behind my back, and he actually defended me. Apparently he does this sort of thing all the time, he keeps the community from tearing itself apart. There were even other times he spoke highly of me and my capabilities in that game. The things he says may be a bit obnoxious but they're more like his catchphrases once you've known him for long enough, I guess I completely misjudged him.


I have an opposite story.

There was this shy, ugly girl in school that no one wanted to be around. She was new, so I attributed it to that. Me and another friend spent quite a lot of time getting to know her, spent time with her etc, and it seemed to be going fine. Until it all went to shit, that is.

It seems like she was a compulsive liar, and told horrible things about us to her family and random people in general. I have no idea what things out of what she said were true, or if it was all made up.

One day, her grandma went to pick her up, and she pretty much cursed at us, and babbled complete nonsense, while the "friend" encouraged her. I was so appalled you could do something so malicious to an old, innocent lady, that's even related to you.

Apparently that was the reason she switched schools. She did so again 2 years in.
