Anybody here play Runescape? Specifically OSRS? RS3 is acceptable as well, but I've personally never played it.


I hope you find someone.


What is the difference between f2p and membership here: ?


Without membersip, you'll be limited to the f2p quests, locked out of portions of the world, and won't have access to the full set of skills. You can still do a lot with f2p though

Japanese Youtube has permeated into the international scene with the popularity of virtual youtubers. This thread is about the discussion and appreciation for our vlogging digital idols.

>What is a virtual Youtuber?

Virtual Youtubers are content creators that hide behind personas, often using animations and body rigging software to control 3D models.

>Why are they significant to our culture?

Depicted in many cyberpunk movies, novels, TV shows, and artworks. The use of virtual idols to sport advertisements and to use as personal assistants is a common theme. The rise of virtual Youtubers is a step in the right direction for character assistants to become popular.

>permeated into the international scene
Lol no. The only people who know, let alone care about these things are weebs who go out of their way to seek out Japanese media. Most people don't even know they exist to begin with.


>please screeencap my vapid bullsoykaf
I see your game.


>when virtual personas become widely available, people will be entirely and completely detached from reality and instead delude themselves to live inside the web.
Hasn't that been a fear for basically every form of media ever? And each time, those fears turn out to be groundless. New forms of media can't replace reality, they become a part of reality.

>Only war can save us now

I cannot politely express how strongly I disagree with that view.

>If technology advances the next few years, it'll be possible for anyone to make a virtual persona, and those funny OC pictures you laughed at will become reality.
Technology doesn't need to advance at all for that, it has already been the case for a long time. Online RP has existed for about as long as the internet has. In fact, the creator of Second Life had a vision to create an idealized version of the world you're describing, but then that just ended up largely being used for dumb sex stuff. And then more recently, VR Chat created a resurgence in the popularity of the concept, but then that primarily became known as just a medium for virtual brewing soykaf. I have no doubt that people like what you described exist, but only in edge cases where they're just the type of person who's already inclined to dedicating way too much time to escapism. People like that have always existed and always will exist - technology isn't the cause. If it weren't for modern technology, they'd find some other form of escapism to lose themselves in. If anything, I think that online RP might actually be somewhat beneficial to that type of person - it's a social form of escapism, so at least they're sort of socializing instead of just delving into self-imposed solitary confinement.

I agree that the fact that facebook only shows you happy stuff is harmful, but for almost the opposite reason that you said. Facebook isn't going to make anyone think that life in general is great. People are intelligent enough to realize that their own life sucks. Instead, it makes people feel like everyone else is living in that happy colorful world, but that they themselves have been cut off from that world somehow. It doesn't make people happy by making them think "life is great," it makes people depressed by making them think "everyone's life is great except mine." At least in the case of VTubers there's an explicit acknowledgement of fakery. They're less harmful since they're presented as fictional characters, so there's no illusions about them being real people.


I totally agree with you. Not that I'd ever go to one, but in my town sometimes there is a music concert where the musician doesn't play instruments! He literally stands on stage pressing buttons on his laptop.

link please? this thread surely has more details now?

Thanks for the thread lainon. Sad day. These people who died in this silly selfish incident made more for the humanity than thousands that die every day in shootings and the like..


I couldn't find the original thread, but this is the most recent. It's possible that the original was deleted. Apparently the perpetrator might not wake up.
I don't even like k-on, but I bet one hundred years from now, people will know about it if they still know about anime.

mainstream /b is filled with haters and soykafposters as usual.

Apparently (if we to believe this poster) The guy(barisaku-kun) was a railway otaku who thought that kyoani stealed his term(barisaku - baritone saxophone) and became fed up(not quite sure on this, please correct me..) with anime-painted trains.

I've been experimenting with home recording music for a while, I've been using a very old cheap 1/4" to USB on my laptop. Personally I don't like my recorded music partially to the loads of interference my setup generates.
It's time to upgrade my caveman rig and start off right with an audio interface for solo home recording. I've done some research and I read the pictured interface is pretty much the way to go but what are your opinions and recommendations for an audio interface?


I've been using the 6i6 for about a year (Ableton + a few hardware synths) without any real problems. They certainly aren't top of the line in terms of interfaces but at this point I don't see a reason to upgrade.

does anybody know the original track's name?


It's called Autism, by Sage


ad here, it's an original track made by our music artist, Femto


I made all of the music aside from 2 pages. They are all created specifically for a loop. I might release all of the files on a free album on bandcamp or something once I get it setup.


That would be awesome


what is with these brainlet SS clones and thier fucking need to spam every single fucking board and chan.

Holy fuck this is so cool. I thought the fandom was too sparse to create something as awesome as this.

ITT: Drop event flyers. Adding a short description of what to expect music genre wise is a good thing, too.

On pic related:

>Are you tired of mainstream? You want to go outside and break all the rules? Does heavy experimental sound like Drum 'n' Bass, Jungle, Hard DnB, Breakcore make your heart beat faster?

>If you answered these questions with 'yes', then you are right here.

>Come join us when the system gets fractured!

>We all deserve some high quality music to escape the world for a little moment - this is exactly what we want. All that in an amazing, dark atmospheric location called Arena Club, accompanied by a massive, high-resolution d&b audiotechnik soundsystem.

Los Angeles. Call (323)769-5844 for more information.


Nope, people are just too lazy to post flyers. Maybe there's some legitimacy in your concern post, though. Living in this town, it feels like we are at the endgame in terms of underground nightlife. There are few venues left that are worth visiting and it's only a matter of time until the last tiny bit of Berlin's clubbing scene has disappeared. So don't complain, look out for posters and flyers and go out while you can. Oh, and Berlin has more to offer than Berghain, btw.


Is it laziness or do promoters assume their job is done because they posted on FaceTwitter? Maybe that is laziness too though, or being cheap.

have any of you seen this film? what are your thoughts? if you haven't, it's on kissasian currently. I feel like you all would like it, since Lily is comparable to Lain in a way.

I've been listening to the OST pretty frequently after watching it, and i appreciate the effort that went into the soundtrack, and making sure Lily actually had a discography of her own.

ye i like the soundtrack but don't like the film. don't like shunji iwai in general. shame because i liked the concept and related to it because of my own love for bjork when i was a tenn
off the top of my head, other than sion sono, kore-eda is about the only contemporary jap director i can stomach
also had (2bh still have) a massive crush on faye wong, all began with watching chungking express


>Chongking Express
looks dread. Would somebody be furking kind enough to shove it onto i2p tracker maybe?


You really do not need any help finding a copy of this. Really.


Wouuu, I did enjoy it! Now you can do it too, at a i2p tunnel near you.

… is there a cine thread around here?


I just finished watching the movie last night for the first time. Needless to say it was very painful and captivating to watch, with flashbacks of getting bullied again. I watched this because of the game Devil Survivor 1. While playing the game I can't help but think that the Japanese have a very otherworldly way of marrying the occult/mysticism with technology and it feels like they do so effortlessly. I don't think I've seen any other culture understand and portray the internet in particular as the Japanese do.
