Just things that make you feel better when down and restore your hope in the world.
Both nostalgia and new favorites welcome!

I checked it out because of your rec, it's awesome so far! I avoid dramas because of the heavy romantic focus so friendships are such a relief. Thank you anon.

Tentative recommendation for Gokushufudou, a slice-of-life manga about an ex-yakuza who becomes a house husband to a businesswoman. The jokes are typically set up that Tatsu, the MC is doing something that appears menacing due to his appearance, but it’s actually wholesome/innocuous/silly. I love it. Also if you’re like me and husbando someone from the Yakuza series this manga is really cathartic read

Great taste. As a Yakuza fan, I really liked this and read all the chapters so far. It's cute and the misunderstandings with other yakuza are funny

My favourite wholesome music is Goose House, a Japanese band with some really fun, happy songs and they do a lot of covers too. But I think their originals are the best, some other favs of mine that are on youtube:

>Domino Effect
>Bokura dake no Toushindai

>FUJOSHI ("rotten girl"): a self-mockingly pejorative Japanese term for female fans of manga and novels that feature romantic relationships between men.

Discuss yaoi and BL here, as well as series aimed at fujoshi (and fudanshi) like Hetalia, sports anime, and male idol anime. Discussion of BL games here is totally OK but please do not cannibalize the otome game general.

Absolutely true. I'm a fan of polar opposites and size differences because that just makes following the couple's development and interaction interesting, a lot of people have the same taste. But as you said the hatred the whole seme/uke setting gets is amplified to ridiculous levels.

>There's no moral highground in wanting to see a big muscley bottom, but not-like-the-other-fujos love to push the 'ewwww feminine boys, only bara is good' bullshit.

Glad I'm not the only one who's done with this particular meme. The people who can't shut up about how much they love bara and how it's superior to every other style of BL can get so fucking smug about it. Your hairy fridge build bear daddies with giant dicks aren't much more realistic than the effeminate bottoms in mainstream BL, stop acting like it makes your taste more mature.

>When they act like their 17 years of socialization and maturing as a member of female gender is somehow discarded the moment they change their pronouns on Twitter and cut their hair short
I feel bad for them for falling for it but shit their internalized misogyny became externalized misogyny with the retarded "anti-fujo" movement.

Is it just me or is /ot/ on some really strange anti-fujo sperging kick right now? Scrolling past the first page you keep seeing replies where someone has turned apples into oranges just to ree about nasty evil fujo weebs.

No. 21686

It has increased but I doubt it's that many anons… I think it's mostly that one weirdo who thinks fujos are harassing artists en masse for not drawing their yaois on demand plus a couple of others who hate weebs in general joining in.

No. 21689

I never saw people so adamantly bring up fujos at all before, and suddenly someone is turning every discussion into ranting about how fujos ruin everything and are basically the hitlers of female fandoms. It all sounds so ridiculously underage too with the "fujos force everyone to draw yaoiz and call you homophobic if you don't, reee" rambling too. Did we get an influx of newfags lately?

Pale Fire is my favorite book. Its very unusual, it starts with a fictional foreward, and then a poem, and then commentary on the poem (also fictional). Its presenting the poem as the final magnum opus of a recently deceased poet and the commentary is written by a deranged fan Charles Kinbote who is convinced the poem is actually about him. Well, kind of. It makes fun of terrible literary analysis, like you probably did in High School English Literature. The book has a very bizarre sense of humor, I think its possible to read it not realizing its supposed to have comedic elements, like I said, really bizarre. I don't want to give too much away, but the narrator/commentary is very unreliable. Was Zembla real? Was he actually friends with John Shade? Who was Kinbote really? I think I knew I loved the book when I got to the footnote where Kinbote talked about how that line in the poem reminded him of his sexy gardener.

I'd encourage you to give it a try. The book doesn't need to be read in order, so if the poem is dragging on you reading it straight through feel free to flip back and forth between the poem and the commentary.

Finally read The Pisces and ended up really liking it. I didn't pick it up earlier as I expected an ironic, but still very much a cheesy, wish-fullfilment romance novel. I feel like the main subject of the story was not love, but depression and emotional emptiness. Felt like the author really nailed how women try to escape existential dread and boredom in the age of Tinder.

Give it a go if you also like problematic protagonists and can stomach non-graphic pet abuse/neglect.

Despite a ebook reader full of files, I don't know what to read now. This is hard. Tried So Sad Today but like most collections of essays it does nothing for me.

I did some research after posting this and found that itch.io has tags for lesbian romance and steam has a community page for games with LGBT content that's pretty well categorized.
For anyone else who's interested.

There's some gross fetishy bullshit aimed at men in there of course. (you can usually tell because they get amazing ratings and have absolutely foul review sections full of creepy shit) but I found a couple that seem nice.

Thanks for letting me know that I'm not missing out. And I will definitely be posting my impressions. All these short snippets from the gameplay got me really hyped. Just another day and I can finally play it.
I bet Yuka Kitamura will make an awesome OST to accompany it.

I wrote on here a while back asking for RPG recommendations that allow you to play as an anime girl, collect things, go on adventures, etc. Something girly, lighthearted, and fun. A nice anon suggested the Atelier series, which sparked my interest. Does anyone know of any similar games that can be played on the Xbox 360 or Xbox One?

I have been thinking recently I'd love to have a thread where we could post documentaries. I watch a lot especially when doing stuff around the house so I can post a couple of favourites I recommend here in the OP, more in the comments if anyone is interested, and would love to find some new ones!

Interview with a Cannibal: Guy who met up with another guy online who consented to being murdered and eaten. Morbid but interesting watch. German, so subtitled.

Polygamy Doc: One Man, Six Wives, Twenty something kids. A guy in utah who keeps very very young wives and at the time of filming, being 40 ish, was trying to woo a 16 year old kid. (not a spoiler but he subsequently went to jail and a few wives left him, some stayed. Very interesting to watch and to look into after)

A historical one for variety: The truth about hygiene etc in Versailles. Stumbled across this and left it on while doing my makeup and really liked it! Sent me down a nice historical rabbithole, not of actual history per se but of little tidbits like this about daily life and lesser known shit (literally)

Ok back to morbid. If you haven't seen this already, it's insane, a little girl, "child of rage". Another one interesting to look into what happened afterwards (she was later put through attachment therapy)
