Has the new BO taken over?
No, I think the current BO is being retarded is all.
Sturgeon just messed up and gave the /fit/ BO too many permissions and he made some shit-posts.
That makes sense.
I wouldn't mind some BLOATLORD shitposts tbh. As long as the catalogue isn't flooded with them, I find them funny.
>What is this about?
Every month a book is chosen, robots will discuss, post their opinions, experiences and overall thoughts about said book.
Feel free to sugest whatever book you may like for the next month.
Everytime the monthly book is announced the month will be written in the name field for easy finding. The pdf of the book should be in that very post.
Beware there will be spoilers in this thread
Welcome to the NHK
>Why should I read it?
It's safe to assume that everyone has at least watched the anime. The novel is definitely worth a read considering all the changes that were made in the animated series. Many scenes that may seem really obtuse will take a new meaning knowing the original intentions of the author.
>pdf still doesn't work
Here is a link instead.
I apologize in advance for not completely adhering to the rules of the thread since I actually haven't read this version of NHK ni Youkoso. However, I'd still like to speak about this story since it's one that's very close to me.
>Welcome to the NHK
This story had a substantial effect on me back when I first watched it. I think I was 15 or 16 back then and, at the time, I was coming off the immense shock that was my discovery of just how fucked things are. The impossibility of the pure romance displayed in the media I consumed, the hedonism rampant in society, and the trend towards an ever-increasing amount of this hedonism. You know, the works.
Unsurprisingly, this sent a young me into a pretty serious depression. I started to despise the outside world and its people, and soon, due to my weakness at the time, began to fear interacting with them.
Due to this, I connected with the main character, Satou, very deeply and empathized with him quite a bit. At the time it was very cathartic to see the emotions I was feeling displayed on screen. It showed me that I wasn't alone in the way that I was feeling, even if the guy I was relating to was in an anime. As cliche as that might be.
The show also rubbed me raw quite a few times. This happened most notably during the representations of Satou's crushing loneliness which mirrored my own feelings at the time. Especially s
Im afraid of submitting anything because my interests are extremely specific, i mean i don't know to what extent other robots care about the history of Wargaming or ASW warfare, im currently reading some Yukio Mishima's stuff, i have yet to finish it though, maybe i'll submit something if i find it interesting enough for other anons
Ideally it'd have to be generally interesting for most robots, something that may spark some discussion, opinions and thoughts.
If you feel a book will do that, feel free to submit away.
I've heard of him but never read his stuff, it might be interesting.
>I actually haven't read this version of NHK ni Youkoso
Feel free to post anyway. I still recommend reading the novel.
The afterwords are interesting too. You might want to read them first, they are at the end of the pdf.
Life's pretty alright at the moment.
So many things to do, too many things to learn, life continues in every way detestable and ordinary and I see how little control I have for even the tiniest of details as what I seek to accomplish slowly reifies itself as something attainable. I am watching a disaster unfold and the one behind the wheel wants me dead and doesn't care if it takes him with it.
You are scum. Leave and OD.
Impressive story, full of allegory. You should take more of the funny makes-your-dick-not-work substance.
I have been interested in mountaineering lately. It's an extraordinarily nice thing to do, sometimes quite solitary as well.

I don't necessarily envy them for having to work all the time, or for being normalfags, but all seem relatively happy with some sense of purpose. Not only am I pretty miserable on a daily basis, but even if I did have a well-paying full-time job, I still wouldn't be content because I don't really want that life. The whole day felt like one giant reminder of the fact that I don't belong in this world and I never really did. There isn't much here for me, and little that I'm willing to offer this world that I so deeply despise. I have never wanted to end my own life more than I have today. So, I think that I have decided
Already had one of these before but we need some more broad topics to get some conversation going. So what have you robots been up to recently? Art, games, anime, vague autistic shit no one's heard about? If you find it interesting, talk about it.
I started a new profile in American Truck Simulator. The Texas and Wyoming expansions are the only new games I'm sort of excited for. I find the game very relaxing.
What were your old hobbies and how have they become pozzed?
I've been recently toying with the idea of making a monthly Book Club thread. Are robots interested with that idea?
Ideally I would like to start with the Welcome to the NHK novel, since everyone has watched the anime and may have some interest in the novel.
I just enjoy solitary hobbies and try to forget faggots exist. That worked for me.
Do people buy those games, or get them through other means?
A book club sounds fun, I think it was discussed before back on 8chan but nothing happened with the idea. There was a library thread though which was nice.
I'd be interested too, we had it before but it always fell apart after a few books and lacking partizipation.
I'm interested in money. They are surprisingly hard to make. At least with gold you could find some in the wild, but with money even that isn't an option.
What have you guys been watching, reading, or playing recently? Feel free to share pieces of media that you think are particularly noteworthy or just a good way to pass time.
I decided to try playing my 5 year abandoned MM save recently but I completely fucking forgot where I left off and what I was supposed to do.
Have you seen the cartoon of it? If so how would you say it was?
>Have you seen the cartoon of it?
I have only seen a few clips, so I might be wrong.
>If so how would you say it was?
The cartoon only adapts the first 2 or 3 volumes of the comic.
The comic is retardedly long and suffers a change in tone half way through. Being a parody at the beginning and an edgefest towards the end. When they tried to adapt the first part, they forgot that the comic was first and foremost a parody comic with a somehow overarching history. Due to this, a lot of the situations fall flat because they either require a character to be unbelievably stupid or the only sane person in the comic. It's really edgy, it would have been a better as an adaptation of The Boys. Leaving aside America's obsession with niggers, most of the changes are for the worse and give a wrong image of the characters. Omniman is autistically evil in the cartoon, when he's rather apathetic in the fight scene in the comic (Webm and Pic related)
I don't plan to watch it to see if they fixed anything. The comic left me a sour after taste and I rather forget it.
Visual novel is always superior to anime.

I understand many Anons around here have shit family members, annoying neighbors, and other prevailing maladies of the like that makes one's living beyond unbearable, vent about it and share experiences, at any rate excuse my selfishness since the only reason im making this thread is so i can vent about it, and this subject is specific enough that it could warrant its own thread

How come your image is the opposite direction of the one I've got
it's like looking in a mirror
Shut up fag.
Of course they aren't worth fighting for. But as >>2900 mentioned, there's the purpose of fighting against this current evil system we live in. We'll probably be forced to fight against the system regardless, once the NWO finalizes its control over the world and forces everyone to bend to its will once and for all time.
This is the cutest image by far.
Runners up if you're a furry.
Konata is cute!
I understand fighting the system is what we should do, it's a matter of how. Apart from defending myself if they ever go 1984 (as in, fighting for my life and freedom to not become human cattle) I don't see how we could ever go on the offensive. Apart from developing myself to the point of trascending this world, I just don't see an opportunity to be on the offensive.
If we ever have the chance to fight back, society will be problaby closer to Fahrenheit 451 than 1984.
Hopefully we can actually get a second one of these that doesn't get nuked before completion.
Alright, but not before the grand finale. C ya all.
This is still an image board that kind of shit doesn't phase anybody. You need to leave because we have standards here, standards which hedonistic apes like you fall quite far under, not because we're scared of your gross fantasies.
>I get it, you guys hate sex. I brought up I would like to have sex if I could, so it's all I am.
It's odd to complain about that in response to my post, I think I've engaged with what you've written pretty fairly despite your degeneracy which is probably more than you deserve. I didn't even say you would fuck a roastie if you could, you volunteered that information yourself just now. All I said was that it was gross to fantasize about all that shit you said. Anyways it seems weird to come here and talk about that shit, and then act all indignant about being told to shut the fuck up about it. It'd be stupid to act like anons here haven't jerked off to some fucked up shit, myself included. It's another thing entirely to post about this kind of fantasy to a bunch of random anons, or to actually want to put your dick inside a whore.
Anyways it seems like we're just going in circles at this point since you conflate memories with one's being and it seems like you're unable to think outside of that view, so whatever. Just don't come back 'round these parts or I'll be forced to turn you into a gurgling retard with my telepathic abilities, pal.
Last post get!
It's been a bit slow these past few days but if there's one thing robots are good at talking (complaining) about its normalniggers. Post your stories about times where you've been particularly baffled at the endless retardation of normalniggers.
Thankfully I haven't had to deal with normalfaggots in a while due to corona and whatnot.
Internet was always for porn, the first image ever sent was of a nude woman, same with photography.
Seems like the deal in Murrika was to bleed the middle class to below working class and syphon that money directly into supporting niggers/spics/vermin etc to force everyone onto a (((level playing field))) = a dystopian hell where everyone is gradually crab-bucketed to the point where you end up literally fighting niggers in the street if you have the perverse notion to go outside.

I used to think things would be better after school. Why the fuck do I even try.
Higher ups are known to have a massive ego that get in the way of a lot of things. They're often very insecure and thus want to feel either professionally or intellectually superior to those that work under them so the last thing they want is truth that comes from down under.
>Higher up starts sperging out about how I clearly did it and that I'm disrespectful
Acting hostile to cover up the fact that they were caught lying instead of admitting that they were wrong is pretty common for people with a large ego. I think you should ask awkward questions instead of outright accusing him of lying. Ask him questions in a way that looks like you don't know that he is lying. Appear as if you are just confused and point out that the logic he is bringing up doesn't make sense. If you play it calm and rational then he may just back out from fear of being caught lying even though you already caught him lying inside your head. Another way of saying this would be to put him in a situation where you show that he is on the verge of being caught lying and then he will do the rest of the work for you. I'm not sure if this advice works but it's something.
