>he thinks it's about the name change
I take it you've completely ignored everything that has happened over the past four months.
Come on, you can post better bait than that!

Yes, fellow Anon. There is not a single thing wrong with the new and improved 8kun™. The name change seems to be the only thing a small minority of anons complain about and frankly that is just a needlessly elitist attitude.
The best cause of action is clearly to rush back there and help the community grow, like the good guys that already went back. I myself consider buying some of that fine 8kun™ merchandise too.
Has your high quality Gondola™©® painting arrived in the mail yet?
Why yes it did, fellow kunner. Check my patreon if you want early access to Gondola™©® painting review.

This is a nostalgia thread for all things otaku/imageboard culture related. We had one before, but it got shut-down along with 8chan.

Post videos from your favorite Nico Nico Douga Melodies or doujin groups such as IOSYS. Post anime openings or your favorite character songs. Anything is accepted.

I don't know where else to ask, and I hate asking to be spoonfed, but does anyone have that mega of all or most abridged series on YouTube, many of which are no longer available on the site? I lost the link.

I assume he saw it BEFORE the suckskeeter got to him. Also, considering where he got bitten i imagine his was far more tame than Chilchak's.
Let it be known that Laius is into furry transformation, and body horror.
What was /monster/ reaction?
I haven't shown them yet, but I might post it in the QTDDTOT to ask if the snouts on the wolves count.
I would gladly be Lauis' partner in autism.

Infinity Cup Anonymous 11/09/2019 (Sat) 05:14:44 No. 5588 [Reply] [Last]

As that one anon that's been working on the Infinity Cup for all this time, I feel like the boards that were set to participate deserve a bit better than radio silence. For those that aren't caught up or need a quick rundown:
>The Infinity Cup is a virtual soccer(football[divegrass]) tournament, with its roots dating back to the earliest days of 8chan
>It takes place in Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), a virtual soccer franchise from Konami
>I took on the responsibility of organizing the 5th iteration of the Cup back at the beginning of this year
>Over months, I learned how to mod PES to put in each board's respective team and run simulated games between them
>Using pre-existing guides (many not in English) I also learned how to mod the game from an aesthetic and quality of life standpoint, including crowds, referees, stadiums, balls,
and even rudimentary player models
>24 boards agreed to participate, and the Cup was scheduled to begin August 9th
>On August 4th/5th, we received word that 8chan was losing its host, the site went down relatively shortly after
>With no site and no functioning central hub, the Cup was postponed.
>I disappear for about a month
>I return in October
>We still don't have a site, but we do have a webring.
>You are here.
The whole point of this is to see if anyone still cares at this point. There was hype for the Cup. Yes, some boards cared much more than others but there 24 willing boards and we had the resources to run the Cup. I put in probably far more work on my own than any sane person should have, so I don't want this all to go to waste. That being said though, if we set a date, gather the required parties, and begin streaming the Cup and 6 people show up, I'd rather just not do it at all. I'm going around posting this on every participant board that's here on the webring and I'll try to get this up on 8kun somehow. In the meantime just post in here so I can get a sense of interest from you.

The 2019 Summer (yeah, right) Infinity Cup is over. /kind/ have emerged victorious over /co/ following a 1-1 match won in penalties by a score of 4-3. The Golden Boot winner is St. Peter of /christian/ with a whopping 10 goals over the course of the tournament. Full tournament results can be found on the wiki http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/2019_Summer_Infinity_Cup and full statistics as well as match summaries and update team pages will be produced on the wiki in the coming days. Thank you to all the anons who tuned in at one point or another and I look forward to hosting all of you, hopefully with a more stable home base, for the next Cup, coming some time in 2020.

This is why Lamias are best girls.

Calling him an otaku is pretty much a means to slander.
Though I think more people outside of otaku are tired of dealing with pixilated porn.
snakeskin is actually a cool collectible
I used to have a snake. I just tossed the skin usually after he shed.
You probably could've made some gay craft bullshit out of it and sold it.
I've got a rattlesnake rattle my grandfather gave me in a box somewhere. From what my mother told me, he wasn't especially picky about eating what he could shoot when he was a young man, so I suppose snake was on the menu at some point and the tail a neat trophy.

I'm 95% sure it's a movie, not a season.
Dr. Stone is ending quite miserably. The series is in full rush mode: formely they spent several episodes building a lightbulb; now, they've compressed the assembly of hundreds of components of a cellphone into a 5mins montage.
Didn't watch it but I'm surprised the anime reached that point, they're building cellphones pretty late in the manga.

Watch Punchline and be refreshed by Rie not playing a tsundere.
Checking those trips.
Also, does this baka count?
Seemed fairly competent to me.
Dunno if 2007 counts as classic, but Taiga definitely is one of the greats. One of the rare tsunderes having an actually plausible relationship progression rather than BPD.
The LNs ended with them married and Taiga giving birth to many children, if I recall.
More like watch Fullmetal Alchemist. It seems to be a little known fact, but Rie Kugimiya voiced Alphonse Elric.
