Sunday; the day for resting. After a long working week, hard partying Friday night as well Saturday's party it is now time to relax

Sunday; to recharge the batteries for a new week.
A new week with exploring,science,friendships as well challenges.
But that's the future, here is now, not the past, not the future but the present.
A "present" that is a good couch/bed, good book, coffee or tea. A Time for yourself to yourself

Step in the cozy lazy H.A.Y
Meet new ponies, meet old ponies, Talkj about the day. had a good day, had a bad day?
we all listen, take a seat,blanket.

Anime. You either love it, you hate it, or you look at lewd pictures of it on the internet.

Anime is divided into several demographical genres, most popular of which being Shounen and Seinen. Today, we are looking at Seinen; anime aimed primarily towards young adult men. Unlike most Shounen series, Seinen anime is not afraid to delve into dark and disturbing subject matters, display gruesome imagery and give the overall story a bittersweet or even downright bad end. But at the same time, many Seinen anime alternatively opt to take a more realistic and slice-of-life kind of story. Indeed, Seinen anime come in pretty much all shapes and sizes, and so much variation tends to give rise to unique or unusual protagonists.

In this thread we will be comparing the protagonists of various Seinen anime series, to find out who is Ponyville's favourite! Naturally, feel free to chime in with your own recommendations as well. Protagonists from series that have yet to be animated are also welcome! Remember however that these characters have to be the protagonists! No deuteragonists allowed!

Shinichi Izumi (Parasyte) VS Alucard (Hellsing)

I assume she means Boku no Hero Academia? Sadly that series doesn't qualify because it's under the Shounen genre.

As for Round 2, I'll be updating this thread again tomorrow morning. I've not been feeling well this morning and I've been occupied for the rest of the day, so I haven't been able to keep track of this.

Stay tuned for Round 2, and feel free to vote while Round 1 is still ongoing?


File: 1532939162890.png (2.72 MB, 1920x1080, 16:9, P3VjROv.png) ImgOps Google

And so ends Round 2 of Strawpoll Versus!

The votes have been counted, and it looks like the most popular Seinen protagonist thus far is Saitama from One Punch Man with 8 votes! And sadly, the least popular Seinen protagonists Kobayashi from Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid and Ken Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul, both of which have recieved no votes.

The losers are dropped from the roster, and Round 2 begins! However, I must specify that upon further research, a lot of the requested additions thus far are from either Shounen or Shoujo series rather than Seinen series, so sadly they cannot be added to the roster.


Jesus Christ (Saint Oniisan) VS Alucard (Hellsing)

Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop) VS Guts (Berserk)

I personally prefer the normal version, to be honest.

The Ultra versions have some additional Pokémon and some minor story alterations, but the real big changes aren't until the post-game. As for the story alterations, I generally don't think they are really any good.

I guess the story alterations might not be as irksome if you haven't played the normal version first, though.

Nice, that's pretty detailed.


I suppose I should add the most recent one - I JUST finished Page 1 of my fancomic yesterday.

I haven't drawn comics, or even as much as a little gag strip for well over ten years, but yesterday, I finished page 1 of a 21-page story I wrote a few weeks ago. So that felt pretty good.

I'm trying to do a "see it early on Patreon" thing, not that I have followers on that tier yet, but it goes fully public this coming Saturday.

Well done!


Thank you.

I'm still pretty novice at painting but I'm applying the right techniques and using quality tools and paints and with enough effort I can get pretty good results. That mini took 6 hours to get looking that good, with more practice I'll be able to do it faster and better.


Do you deal with Panhandlers/beggars often where you go?

Are you an easy sucker to give out money?
Are panhandlers quiet where you go?
Ever dealt with really pushy people?

How do you feel about things like video attached? Do you think panhandlers are mostly poor people, or do you buy into the story that it's a fraud?

Earlier this week, news reported here as well on some videos taken by individuals which proof that some aspects are faked for sympathy. (like injuries) and kids/pets are just given around to begging parties.

You know what, "I can feel empathy, I just choose not to." still makes you a ghoulish person, even if you can pick apart the semantics of how I said it to stroke your own ego.

So I guess I'll let you have that one if you get off on that so much. You got me! I shouldn't have said "Tracer is incapable of feeling empathy." I should have said. "Tracer may or many not be capable of feeling empathy, but he freely admits he only does so for a select few, and he does not to most of the people I've ever seen him interact with. He's kind of an asshole, and you shouldn't let what he says bother you."

Hey, just as you know that you were wrong is good enough for me. I've no respect for your opinions of others as they've no standard definition and are usually worded in a way to offend others without you knowing it somehow.

I'll go ahead and let this be my last post to you in here, as you derailed the thread enough as is.


I wasn't "wrong", you were pedantic. Big difference. And one could argue a lack of empathy for others is very much on-topic for this thread. But yes, I see no point in discussing something with someone who chooses not to show empathy.

I think, a big issue here IS people's assumptions about the homeless. They MUST be homeless due to self-destructive behavior, so they don't deserve empathy or help. I heard a funny thing about Canada while I was there. In Canada healthcare is free, so the homeless see the doctor often. But then they just get let back out onto the streets and get sick again. Someone figured that they waste so much money on this cycle that they should probably build affordable housing for the poor with that money instead. But everyone was opposed to the idea. Because fuck them, they're homeless, right?

I'm always a fan of custom level builders in games. I wonder why games nowadays never include those anymore.


Some do but not all.
Sometimes a level making program follows up. Like when Half-Life, GMod and TF2 became so popular that VALVe released their own editing programs for public use.

E.g., in German, the word "Mädchen" ("girl") is grammatically neuter, despite referring to a biologically female entity.  WTF?!  And inanimate objects get assigned gender seemingly at random, e.g.: "Gabel" ("fork") is feminine, "Löffel" ("spoon") is masculine, and "Messer" ("knife") is neuter.

Grammatical gender does not equal real life sex, shocking I know.
This too. Like my historic linguistics teacher said "Language is probably the most conservative social medium"
And this. But I like to rather put it this way: languages are suited to the human brain.
It's either inherited known by heart, due to shape of the word (e.g. all German nouns in -chen are neutral), or chosen by lexical association with words you already know the gender of. There is suprisingly little variation.

Gender-neutral language is a lot easier, which is why I find it hilarious when people complain about it.

I couldn't agree more. Gender-neutral language just strikes me as inherently more practical than gendered language.

Hey everyone! I haven't seen y'all since christmas, so i wanted to check in on you and see how everyone has faired since the holidays!

i have been thinking, i've been on a very very very STRONG "Night in the Woods" kick, since i played it through last week. i am usually somewhat generous when it comes to games and shows i like, but i mean no hyperbole when i say that i think that it is in very many ways a masterpiece game. it weaves in beautifully a seemingly simple and cute world with fun and diverse characters, and puts together dark and harsh realities of the real world, the fears and ever present dangers in life, but as well as the small and big things that make life worth living. from Mae's first steps out of the bus stop, to learning about what happened to Bea's family and work, to threatening Scriggins with brain death via ass asphixiation, it's perfect. and then it takes it one step further by making the town feel real, giving it a rich and relevant backstory, and mystery that just really helps further deepen the importance of everything.

i can say, it's been just permeating my mind, and i am in love with the game in every sense. and while it didn't teach me a lesson i didn't already know, i feel that it delivered it in a way that felt much more sincere and real to me than anyone has made it

"At the end of everything, Hold onto anything"

i've been through a lot, and i've related to these characters quite a bit (looking at you, Bea and Mae)

But i know that we all have something that has spoken to us more than other media. Whether it be a show, video game, movie, book, whatever it is! something that made you feel more connected to it, and in a way has made you feel more connected to yourself. so what has touched your spirit like that?

and furthermore, what media has changed you? while i know that not everyone has a story like that, but perhaps a story helped you change in a way to make you who you are now?

let me know, and let us share some stories <3

OK.  I'll try to keep it brief as relevant to others will be small and I can't answer whether media has changed my life or just marked it.

Richard Feynmann's memoir: Made me think I could be a physicist.

Walden: While I've never as separated from community, it's often healthy for me to have some distance.

Over the Hedge: Silly movie, but seemed to cause me to want to understand the woods.

Background Pony: hit me hard, an unresolved issue of accepting death and forgetting while not depressed.  Dieing when you want to die is not hard.  It's dieing when you don't want to, but not letting fear of loss keep you from being happy where I struggle.

Myst: appreciating charm of virtual spaces.

I posted some mockups of overlays to improve the identification of video embed images. Get in here and make your opinions known so I don't have to take responsibility for choosing it myself!

I added a few new notification sounds for those who use em. They are "Typing", "Ta-Da", "Windows Chord", and "Thwomp". Try them out if you are into that.

Also, if you feel like large amounts of youtube video embeds are slowing your browser down, you can go to Options -> Behavior and unselect "Automatically Embed Video" and instead of embeds, youtube videos will show up as images which will embed after you click on them. It should be apparent what is and isn't a video image based on the size hopefully.

Let me know if I broke anything!

So I came up with this idea like, forever ago. During the season 3 hiatus, specifically, while everyone was wailing over how AliTwi would ruin things, I hoped to at the very least show that it could be handled in an interesting and creative way, no matter how unlikely. It's not so much a fic as an intro and a concept, a few pages to show what could have been. I was always kinda proud of the idea but I never put it out there, and I just recently found it again so I wanted to get some opinions on it. And I hope to get a good amount of feedback because I'm sure most of you have at least seen past season 3!

The episode would start a short time after Twilight's coronation, and reality is starting to set in on her. She's beginning to realize that this changes everything., if not with her friends and peers, then with her entire future. No matter how much she thinks about it, three things keep plaguing her about the idea of suddenly becoming a princess.

First, what has she been spending her whole life working up to? Was it this? She'd studied magic for years under Celestia, so that she could help ponies and become somepony great like Starswirl the Bearded. Someone who uses their vast understanding of magic to make life better for everyone, some kind of mage. That... doesn't sound like a princess. She'd attended the same courses in school as the other gifted unicorns, and while she did plenty of extracurricular work, everything she'd done had been about understanding magic. Even moving to Ponyville, in Celestia's own words, had been to experience and understand the "magic of friendship". Looking back, none of that pointed toward becoming a princess. In fact, being a princess would only seem to hinder the future in magic she'd been working toward. Would the career she'd built her entire life around just be cast aside because she got a sudden job she wasn't expecting?

Second, old choices aside, being a princess is a big deal! Twilight may be egotistical at times, but she could never think herself the equal of Celestia or Luna, not only after what little she's accomplished and done for Equestria. Sure the argument could be made that saving Equestria multiple times (with her friends) is plenty, but Twilight herself doesn't give herself credit so easily. And princesses do far more than just save the day, they put themselves out every day to lead hundreds, if no

Had any interesting dreams lately?

Last night, I dreamt I was back in my last year of high school, but no matter what I did, I couldn't mentally process any of the classes. I talked to my brother about it, but he told me it was obviously all a dream, then suddenly the classes started to look psychedelic. I'm not entirely sure if this was a dream-within-a-dream phenomenon, but either way, it was clearly my subconscious reaching out to me.
Then I dreamed I was the Little Mermaid. After swimming away from my father, I took off my clamshell bra to feel further liberated, but everything was going by cartoon logic, so I didn't have visible nipples. Instead of going to the surface to see a human, I went to the place of a hot merman. I later caught him with another mermaid, but I didn't care at that moment because I was preparing for battle and was wearing armour at that point. The other mermaid turned out to be his sister anyway.
And that's about all I remember. So what about your dreams, peeps?

I very rarely remember my dreams. But there is one from a few weeks ago that I remember very vividly, even after all this time.

I remember that in the dream, I was an assassin who had to eliminate some high-priority targets. I don't remember who those were, but I stayed at a skyscraper that doubled as a motel. I climbed to the top with a sniper rifle and looked around with the scope, but suddenly police helicopters showed up. I fled back into the motel, running down the stairs as the helicopters shot out the windows.

I passed the floor I originally came from and ended up at the bottom, where there were large and luxurious apartments rather than regular motel rooms. I could hear people descending the stairs above me, so I fled in one of the apartments. It seemed even bigger on the inside, like it was a real house, and it even had a second floor. It had a relatively normal-looking living room with an open kitchen, and the stairs to the second floor led to a hallway connected to two bedrooms and a bathroom. For some reason though there was a third bed in the hallway itself, right next to the stairs.

I sat down on the bed in the hallway and looked out the window, when suddenly a woman wearing a bathrobe walked out of the bathroom. I don't remember the specifics of how she looked, but I somehow knew that she was in her 40's and looked pretty young for her age. She sat down next to me, and asked if I found her attractive. I said she looked alright. We spent some time talking about things I don't remember, but it didn't lead to anything erotic and after a while I just said goodbye and walked back down the stairs.

When I came down there was suddenly a man in the kitchen, who seemed to be mixing a drink. He asked me who I was, but I just ignored him and casually left the apartment. From that point the dream suddenly wasn't from my perspective anymore. Time leapt forward a few hours, to a scene of the man making a police report in the apartment about seeing me there.

I don't remember anything after that, but I'm pretty sure I woke up not long after.
