  1. What Anime are you watching now?

    Was watching Restaurant to Another World and a crepe was cut up like this: Then fairies picked up the portions to eat, like this: Tsk, tsk, tsk
  2. Memes are dead, thank the EU

    TNW recently spoke to lovers and haters of the Copyright Reform in-depth, but the controversy of the proposed reform can be boiled down to two contested articles, number 11 and 13 — which would effectively establish link tax, censorship machines, and ban memes. Article 11 (a.k.a. link tax) would force anyone using snippets of journalistic online content to get a license from the publisher first — essentially outlawing current business models of most aggregators and news apps. This can also possibly threaten the hyperlink and give power to publishers at the cost of public good. Article 13 (a.k.a. censorship machines) will make platforms responsible for monitoring user behavior to stop copyright infringements, but basically means only huge platforms will have the resources to let users comment or share content. There’s a worry that this could lead to broader censorship, with free speech vehicles — like parody, satire, or even protest videos — potentially untenable under this system. https://thenextweb.com/eu/2018/09/11/eu-parliamen-copyright-reform-internet-censorship-machines-link-tax/ Other problematic measures were passed as well, including Article 12a, which prohibits sports fans from posting their own photos or videos of sporting events online, while stating that only event “organizers” have the right to do so. https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/3kenb8/the-eu-can-still-be-saved-from-its-internet-wrecking-copyright-plan Good job EU. Nice work. We all hate your guts. Please retire.
  3. Nekonyan's Two August Announcements

    I just got this game. First thoughts ... I'm really digging this. It's a really flowing, light read and they've done a great job with the translation. It makes me think Nekonyan will be right up my alley.
  4. Birthday thread

    I'd say "Happy Birthday, Fiddle" but birthdays don't count when you're younger than 5. You're too young[1] to enjoy them. And I bought this bottle of scotch for you too. Guess I'll just have to drink it myself :3 [1]After the age of 30 you're getting too old to enjoy them. Oh those blissful 25 years or so of happy birthdays ...
  5. Sol Press just announced the Daresora series

  6. Nekonyan's Two August Announcements

    There's a lot of hype around Hello Lady! I might pick it up. Looks like a fun ride. Aokana looks a bit more like the usual VN fare. I don't think it's for me.
  7. If the dull phase goes on long enough that I no longer want to continue reading, I drop it and pick up something else. Life's too short to read genre fiction (stories meant to entertain) out of some weird obligation, or vague promise that it might get better well into the future.
  8. Something happened at Sekai Project?

    I'm sure Hobibox is also looking for any opportunity to bring more of their unique take on localisation to the West. They may also rescue some titles
  9. "Your Diary" is coming out

    BTW, I hope everybody upgraded their PC for this game. The recommended requirements are pretty heavy
  10. "Your Diary" is coming out

    We'll have to convince some poor sap with loads of free time intrepid representative of the community to fork out 20 US dollaroos and do some research. Any volunteers? Anyone at all? Come on, it looks like a really enjoyable VN ...
  11. Birthday thread

    Happy Birthday @Nayleen Hope your day is a relaxing one ... filled with good food and drink
  12. "Your Diary" is coming out

    I would say it looks like they ran the Japanese through google translate and plonked it straight in, but TBH that's doing a disservice to google translate.
  13. "Your Diary" is coming out

    The Video Game Boy on Steam has released some screenshots of the game in a review. Kudos to this upstanding gentleman. This is probably the worst official release I have seen for a long time:
  14. Hello There!
