Please direct matters of board moderation policy, board aesthetics such as banners/flags, and similar inquiries to this thread. Otherwise I might not see them. This can also be used as a catch-all thread for off-topic posts. Board Culture & OC Raffle I don't have anything to use the announcement area for, so I'm going to use it for a monthly prize. OC is the lifeblood of imageboards, so I would like to encourage it in a constructive way. Anon* may submit a sentence or quote to be entered into a raffle and turned into an announcement limit of about 100 characters or one sentence, whichever is larger. Raffle entries are not free: In order to be entered into the raffle, anon must either submit a banner or a piece of OC with a moderate amount of effort put in (no stick figures, video-ripped gifs/webms, or generic memes that take 2 minutes to make if you choose OC instead of banners). *Limit of one submission per anon per month. First raffle will be held October 1st. We are currently looking for banners! If there is a girl or image you would like to see in a banner, /l/ is looking for banners. I'll be making a couple at a time, but they will mostly be generic. >How do I make gifs? Either by adjusting frame-by-frame in an image editor, or by cheating at about 70% quality: https://ezgif.com/ >Banner size? The only real restriction is 500kb, but please maintain a roughly 3:1 aspect ratio (300x100 - 600x200) to keep them consistent. I've included a minimum and maximum sized Nene Seal in the banners for now for comparison. We are currently discussing flags! I'm think I want to experiment with custom flags. I'm thinking of doing them as a 28x28 and allowing any liver (really their face or a symbolic representation) or corporate symbol (Hololive, Nijisanji, Phase-Connect, VOMs, etc.) as a flag. If anons are opposed to custom flags, the next month or so is the time to say so. We do not need moderators at this time!

This is not the /l/ that I was expecting. Still nice though.
>>89 I was thinking of that channel. Don't know why my brain went to Mito. >>106 So long as anon isn't using one of those websites that give ad revenue per click, just use whatever gets the best form, fit, and function for the job. If another anon dislikes it they can always just reupload it elsewhere.

Well, that's it folks. Seems like Pippa didn't take the railroading all that well. On top of that, chat was being kind of a dick towards our short-attention-spanned bunny. Tomorrow is hopefully going to be a little more comfy.
>>143 >On top of that, chat was being kind of a dick towards our short-attention-spanned bunny. To be fair chat usually represents the streamer a little too closely. It's why I don't like Bea's menhera girlfriend antics even if I like her lack of filter.
>>144 >chat usually represents the streamer a little too closely True that, especially for our DIY Pekora. As soon as 4scum figured out that she browses /vt/, they began spamming their "spicy"-"memes". That shit is risky as fuck. I'd rather have chat stay calm and not get my favorite lagomorph b&.

Some tips. I can read/listen to nip quite well, not that great at handwriting (even in English) and have never really had the opportunity to speak or practice speaking but I assume most beginners just care about the 'understanding' bits. Tae Kim's grammar guide is the best to start out with. Free (piracy nonwithstanding), simple, starts you off with Kanji ASAP. It's not perfect and you probably won't remember everything after finishing it but that's fine. As long as you have a general idea on how sentences are structured by the end then you can just go back to look at it whenever you're confused on things. I have very rarely, if ever, used grammar books like Genki. Anything that uses roumaji (japanese written in roman characters, it's the 'watashi wa same desu' to 私はサメです) is fucking useless. You should actively be trying to avoid using roumaji, it's one of the few things that will genuinely fuck you up. After a look at a grammar guide, you can start reading and listening to stuff. Don't be afraid of doing it, it's definetly hard as hell and I had trouble reading 5 pages of Yotsubato when I was first starting out, but the more you do it the easier it'll get. At first, you can try just looking for new sentences/phrases/words and adding those onto what you'll learn with Anki. As for listening, listen even if you don't understand anything. Worst that can happen is that you get bored. I recommend watching things you've seen before with subs, or have a general notion of what the plot is, or just something where you wouldn't get bored if you didn't understand what was going on. Like Vtubers! Anime won't retard your speech because presumably you're not a manchild who unironically uses phrases in cartoons to talk to people. Anki is a thing you should use, primarily for rote study of kanji and 'mining'. Having a bunch of premade decks isn't a very good idea since you'll be less emotionally attached to the phrases. If you know the context that a certain word was used in, and have that sentence, it'll stick in your memory much more clearly and will eventually become part of you. Just having the words in an anki deck seems convenient, but if you don't have any context to throw it around in it becomes a lot harder to remember shit. To this extent, I regularly used sentence cards, which are essentially 'sentence on the front, phrase and definition on the back'. I've seen a similar type of card used, I think it was called an audio card, which was the same thing but instead of a written sentence it'd just be the spoken sentence. While I haven't used it, I don't see anything wrong with it other than the possibility that a sentence you might have wasn't actually spoken, or that it's very damn annoying to get the audio for it. You'll probably either have a full audio deck, mixed deck, or just sentence cards deck as a result. Kanji is tricky. There's basically two parts to every kanji, there's the kanji itself, how it's written, and what you might 'define' it as, and then there's all of the various contexts in which the kanji is used. The former helps you with writing them, the latter helps you with understanding them, reading them, knowing the words they appear in, etc. Fully separating kanji studies and reading is stupid and makes everything harder. Reading can easily help you understand kanji a lot more, which is very useful because Japanese is designed by retarded island dwellers who really think it's okay for a random character to be read in 5 different ways depending on context. For rote study, I've found RTK 1/3 to be the best. I don't really bother with the books, although there's no reason not to, I just use the Anki deck. 2 is just about reading the kanji which is redundant if you're reading by yourself and not very efficent. If you're not very good at reading Kanji, which you probably aren't, then look for material with furigana in it. Furigana is the Japanese's answer to their dumbass writing system by simply telling you how Kanji is supposed to be read. Pic related. If you ever have a question about why Japanese is fucking stupid then just tell yourself 'Oh right, it's Japan' and move on, because getting upset over every little thing isn't very efficent. A surprising amount of manga has furigana in it, and you can also use listening material to help with reading. Speaking is something I find difficult because of anxiety. If anyone has any good ideas on how to practice it, let me know. thangg you for comingg 2 ted talk :DD Also duolingo is shit. You can keep using it if you want but I personally despise it. I will not stand for the vtuber conspiracy to make everyone use duolingo to convince themselves through hippie placebo that they are learning a language.
Anyone has a WebM of Coco saying "do your reps"?
>>134 I'll check my backup hard drive tonight. In the mean time have this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tfPRX8fz4Iw
>>127 Duolingo is fine if your only goal is understanding tourist phrases. It is shit for learning a language though. Genki is based around a college curriculum where you finish 70% of the first book in the first semester, and the other half plus the rest of the second book during the second semester. The reason it uses romaji for the first couple modules is because it works off the basis that you are learning hiragana/katakana concurrently, and stops doing that after what would be the first month of classes. Genki is designed around a classroom/tutoring setting in most cases.

The Arena Nene Seal Board owner 09/11/2021 (Sat) 13:04:08 No.2 [Reply]
Welcome to the arena. Despair, ye who enter here. The arena is something of a venting thread. If you have beef with another anon or with a specific vtuber that is getting out-of-hand, you may have discussion moved to this thread. If you want to discuss negative or obtuse meta content of a vtuber such as a boyfriend fuck list or actual pictures of the actress, you must do it here, or on a different board/website. This thread is still moderated, however rules 0 and 6 do not apply here. Have at each other to your heart's content. Please hide this thread by default if this is content you do not wish to see. I would hide it too, if I had the choice. If anon ever gets to the point where he's exclusively only lurking this thread, new rules may come up. At the end of the day, your oshi is a real girl. She may show gratitude and appreciate her fans, but she does not love you. EDIT: As a reminder, please familiarize yourself with the Global Rules of anon.cafe as Romania has laws regarding unlawful violation of privacy and doxxing that this site is beholden to. Should you choose to personally investigate matters, you do so at your own risk. My legal take on this unless the site owner disagrees and corrects me, is that if the information was publicly available at one time, then it does not fall under the Romanian criminal code unless a request for deletion is submitted since it falls under the internet's default fair use license honored by most countries. Should I receive an email or be forwarded such a "DMCA" request, I will post a copy (with names and personal details expunged of course) for transparency in-thread after removing the offending content.

Do any other anons have issues with their wall scrolls going clickity-clack? I have a hard time sleeping without air circulation, but even though I have my fan as low to the ground and wall scrolls as high above the ground as possible, they go "clack clack clack" all night long when the air lifts them off the wall. I'm thinking of running strings through the bottom tube of the scrolls and attaching weights, but I don't want to damage the picture by stretching it.

VOMs Project - Vox Monsters Project chat 09/13/2021 (Mon) 07:23:58 No.94 [Reply]
Tomoshika is cute! Pikamee is adorkable! The new girl is a quiet water spirit and the new boy is a hot-blooded earth dragon. What I like about VOMs is that while they are an official group, GYARI runs the show as if they were independents with fairly minimal contractual obligations. I know Pikamee has been working double time as the VOMs international division's coordinator, and Tomoshika has been acting as PR back in Japan keeping the gears greased. Is the age of Hololive over as GYARI's assembled team takes center stage!? Their website keeps an updated schedule of planned streams and can be found here: https://voms.net/ Pikamee's content is the easier to get into as an English speaker since despite being Japanese, her English is good and clear/crisp most of the time. Tomoshika wants to do better with English, but she's not very good with it. She makes it up by being an absolute sweetheart. Based on Pikamee's explanation, Miuneru can't speak English and has no plans to learn it, while Daimonji is familiar with English but lacks confidence in his ability. Both new members are set to debut at the end of September.
I haven't watched VOMs since Monoe left. I liked her and how stupid she secretly seemed to be with all the times she fucked up reading kanji, and her calm demeanor. It bothers me that we'll never figure out exactly what happened to get her near completely unperson'd from the group. I probably watched Tomoshika the most overall then but Monoe was 2nd with Pikamee in a very far behind, mostly because I wanted more Japanese speaking than English. No I will not take my meds.
>>109 I didn't really watch Monoe, but from what I understand of the situation, their contracts are fairly relaxed (according to Pika). All I can figure is that GYARI decided to crack down hard over attendance or there was a confidentiality breach, since the other reasons that she could have been fired for would normally see a girl graduate or blow up in a scandal. I liked her singing though.
