This was one of the games that came with my Sony Vaio desktop from 2004. Every day I'd come home from middle school and spend hours playing that game…against the AI. I think because it was technically supposed to be a demo it couldn't hook up to the internet. And tbh that didn't matter as my parents hated me being on the internet because they could never use the phone.
Sometimes my best friend would come over and we'd voice record ourselves messing around and trying to beat impossible situations against the computer. Like 1v7 on the hardest setting.

If I didn't have such a rundown macbook I'd play the shit out of that game.

NTA but I actually made a close group of weeb friends on cgl. There was an upcoming con a couple of years back and we made a LINE chat for it. Had to kick out a couple of creeps, of course, but wound up with a solid group of cosplayers/jfashion enthusiasts/artists/gamers.

>>264491
Because after school and college you run into less people organically, and those you do meet usually aren't around for long unless they're coworkers.

I work in a restaurant aimed at a younger demographic and my coworkers all like anime to a degree, but none of them are really weebs like me. Not that I'm a screeching Pocky addict or anything, but I like to get a little more into my animes and Japan aesthetic than I know they would. Like, they'll chat with me about what series they're watching, but they also mostly have kids and other hobbies they like more, so it's not like I could get a group together to go shopping for merch or to throw anime watching pizza parties with. Y'know, stuff I dreamed of doing as a kid/teen with the friends I never had.

Sage for childish but idc, I didn't enjoy my childhood and now that my time and money are mine I crave that sort of friendship and belonging.

Being optimistic, looking forward to my future, not being constantly worried about things I have to do as an adult, not feeling lonely and hating people at same time, the feeling of taking a warm shower and going to bed and falling asleep easily, waking up refreshed and enjoying my day without feeling tired all the time, receiving gifts from people who care about me, calling a friend just to chat about anything, renting a movie with said friend and making a bucket of popcorn, sleepovers, not caring about several flaws on my body and face and knowing very well any single flaw I have makes my value decrease to society, reading a new book or game and being excited to try it, many other things that go away after you grow up and realize life is bleak and you will die at some point so very few things matter if none.

The things that make me feel nostalgic the most are anime, manga and video games I played when I was younger. Until the 2010s, then it's not really nostalgia anymore and I feel like I'm not really enjoying watching weebshit now compared to before, except for a few stuff like JJBA, Gintama and things aimed at fujoshi. So these days I'm trying to watch things I wanted to watch but couldn't like Code Geass, Gurren Lagann or anime I couldn't fully watch because I missed half the episodes on TV and other things. There's also Harry Potter from before the series of volumes was completed, Polly Pockets, Tamagochi, flash dressing games online on the family computer, visual kei, sitcoms like the Nanny, Malcolm in the middle, my wife and kids, and the silly ads that were trying to be "radical". And for Frenchfags here there's also Mobiclic and Adibou from when I was in primary school.

Actually I missed on a bunch of things I wanted to play, watch or read as a teenager or a kid so I'm thinking about catching up. I never had a PS1 or a PS2 and I wanted to play Tomb Raider and Resident Evil and the PS1 FF games as a kid because my cousin did, so I think I'll try to play them on my PSVita someday.

Same, I loved Gwen Stefani and my favorite was Wind it Up. I also remember the Beyoncé songs that came out before and soon after that and I used to watch the MVs all the time on TV. Same with Fall Out Boy, Christina Aguillera, Missy Elliot, Avril Lavigne, Britney Spears, etc. So basically a bunch of pop songs. Everytime I went abroad to visit my family I couldn't watch anything else anyway because I couldn't understand the language.

Oh fuck, I loved Witch when it came out in Minnie Mag. But I remember thinking it was lame that Minnie Mag became Witch Mag, although I still loved Witch when it happened. Then either the series became boring after a while, or I grew up too much for it.

And yeah, the characters were annoying, especially Cornelia IMO, but she was my friends' favorite because she was blonde kek.
My favorites of the main crew were Irma and Hay Lin, but I didn't like Will because I thought she was too much of a boring Miss Perfect. Taranee was just…there.

I didn't have these fights because my sisters and I agreed that Witch was better was Winx. I really didn't like the artstyle for Winx and the French dub was an abomination. I actually didn't really watch Witch, I only read it, hoping there would be a cartoon someday and when it happened I just didn't watch it for no reason in particular.

Speaking of cartoons, I really liked Totally Spies and Martin Mystère (whatever the name is in other languages). Also fun fact, the character designer of both shows made a "french manga" titled Pink Diary when I was in middle school and everyone was expecting something similar because they advertised it as "by that one girl who worked on Totally Spies and Martin Mystère" and it turned out to be a really depressing and melodramatic shojo manga.

Winx came into my country a few years after the initial W.I.T.C.H. hype went down and it seemed to be popular with younger kids anyway, so we never even compared the two. I never liked witch myself because it seemed too basic/boring in a way, but winx was definitely my guilty pleasure. The flashy costumes introduced in the 3rd season caught my eye and I started to become invested in the show as the overall production quality went up and the art style/character designs improved. Bloom was a bland as fuck main character but to be fair she wasn't a complete mary sue, just not really leaving an impression. I wish the villains made more sense than just "I'm taking over the world" but then again it's a show for kids so you can't expect too much complexity. The characters were mostly enjoyable and Flora was my favourite. And she chose the best boy

But when it comes down to shallow things, I always thought witch costumes were ugly as shit. As for winx, their first costumes were also fashion disasters but they got a lot better as the time went on whereas witch just kept those ridiculous clown stockings on.

Western media and games are a lot more popular now and anime has faded back to obscurity, save for a few shows on Netflix catering towards western audiences.

Yes, there is an ending, it just sucks. The last comic is a recap of some of the past adventures. Only good thing is that it ends with the first page of the first issue.
Before it there are a few sucky one-shot episodes about girls.

>>265433
What, winx had a terrible art style. Witch the comic was great till the original artists got the boot. Later on it was mostly good. Winx looks so trashy (though I enjoyed it). I hated how there occasionally were scenes that seemed inspired by hentais (girls tied by tentacles). The Winx comic had even worse style. The most exceptional thing about it is that it had A Very Special Date Rape Drug episode with Bloom almost falling victim.

I was surprised a few days ago at work because someone came in with an anime shirt and we had a completely level-headed conversation about the series and gave each other show recommendations. Or maybe it was just because we were both older fans instead of awkward teenagers

Same, the quality went to shit so fast after a while. I remember after one issue they even published a fan letter saying the last issue was plain horrendeous, it looked like a scratcher did it.

When I was a kid I had the 12inch dolls of Sailor Moon, Jupiter, and Mercury (a Japanese one), and the 6inch dolls of Sailor Moon, Princess Serenity, Chibi Moon, Mars, and Neptune.

But when my mom and I moved when I turned ten and 11, she made me throw them all in the dumpster… Along with some other Sailor Moon stuff and dolls and toys from that era. She told me if I really cared about them I would have taken care of them (??), but with the exception of accidentally detaching Jupiter's leg, they were still in good condition.

I wish she had kept them for me, or at least sold or donated them. It sucks knowing all those precious memories went to waste. Plus these dolls are expensive now!

Last year I found a Sailor Moon and Mars doll sold together in their boxes for $36 on Ebay and bought them right away. They are currently sitting on my display shelf. I'm glad they're back, but it's not the same :(

Seeing Tokio Hotel mentioned in the Cute boys thread gave me a huge burst of nostalgia.

A short while ago I showed my little sister my yearbook and then she asked why all of us wore "wide" pants, had bangs and did peace signs. She's just 9 years younger, but already lives in a completely different world.
I feel like todays beauty standards are taking a huge toll on girls and young womens confidence. Simply being slim was easier to achieve then having a tiny waist paired with a giant ass. I can't say for sure whether Myspace was a thing in Europe, but most people here certainly didn't dress as exteme as Pars Hilton and co. Just bootlegged jeans, converse and some tight fitting shirt, nothing cropped or high waisted.(Imo the standards for men also changed to the negative, beards just aren't attractive at all…) Not knowing shit about what's heathy and or not, not worrying about skin care and premature aging was so nice.

Back then the only thing I did on my dads computer was preparing things for school or playing The Sims. Nowadays I spend every single minute on the internet. Music was also harder to come by, buying CDs felt like you appreciated it more. Since I didn't have internet access and only a shitty phone I spent so much more time outside. My brother and I stayed out all day, sitting in our snow "castle" until it was dark and our mum called us to come inside. I can't even remember the last time I went sledging or ice skating…

For anybody who's German as well, I remember reading Bravo magazine made us feel 'so cool' lol
I also miss when MTV actually broadcast music by bands and some nice tv shows; only weird shit and pop/rap are shown nowdays.
As a kid getting sweets, snacks, fast food or coke was so rare and now that I can get it whenever I want it no longer feels special at all.
Writing emojis as "XD" instead of being able to choose between an eggplant and whatnot…

I miss simply being much more carefree not anxious and depressed

>>265206
Omg, I completely forgot about this lol The brown haired one was my fave.

This reminds me of how much I loved Barbie and her movies. My little borther always played with me. We also had a playmobil castle and dressed up as knights ourselves and "fought" with wooden swords.

>>266632
Sad thing is, back then I still had friends and we did sleepovers (just not as nicely as in this series), but now they're all gone.

Watching TV in general felt so much more special to me, since the time I was allowed to do so was very limited and the shows back then seemed to be so much more wholesome than the newer ones, always only about friendship instead of love.

The thing I regret the most is that I didn't enjoy or appreciate my childhood and early teenage years more. I should have tried harder to keep my friends, to be popular, then I wouldn't have been seen as weird and wouldn't have been so lonely in my last years of high schol and now. But I also should have stood up more for myself and shouldn't have allowed others to treat my like a doormat.

I even wanted to go see them live so I started studying German, though I never went far because the weird genders fucked me up.

Actually I'm glad the internet became a thing when I was a kid because I wasn't allowed to go out and play with friends as a kid and as a teenager so it helped me not being bored to death at home, since there wasn't much to do.

Any German farmers remember that leave Tokio Hotel alone video by that teenage girl? It went viral and she got a ton of shit from people. I think her name was Angie. Poor girl even followed up with a video where she renounced her Tokio Hotel fan status and looked like she was being held at gunpoint.

Honestly growing up in a dysfunctional family that was struggling financially was something I dealt with and it was so uplifting to see how it was portrayed in MitM. They yelled and they argued and sometimes they were jerks but they loved each other because they were family and even though they had their issues with money, they were in it together.

i don't know why this show wasn't more popular. it was and still is easily the best family comedy around, tbh. the writing was excellent and they tackled issues controversial issues pretty liberally and with tact, esp for the time. i still watch it all of the time bc it's just so cozy

Depression and anxiety took so much of my childhood/teenage years away. I hate it so much and I regret a lot because I wasn't properly prepared to deal with it, so I couldn't do anything about it to make it better. It made it impossible for it to be an enjoyable time for me. I lost all of my middle/high school friends except for one. I think that's why I still sometimes like to do things and watch things I did when I was little. (I'm 25 now) It makes the nostalgia so much worse (better?)

I still play neopets sometimes, pokemon/nintendo games. Watch old cartoon network and nickelodeon cartoons, lately more than actual shows. Sometimes I keep them on for background noise. Plus its comforting to hear.

There was a point in my teenage years where I really hit a wall with how tired I started getting, but I remember there being a time before that when I could actually feel well-rested and awake. Now I feel like shit 98% of the time.

are there any other eurofags here who read these books? these were my favourite when i was about 7-11. theyre about this girl called penny, her dad is a vet and she really loved animals. each book was an unconnected different story.

i remember some wild shit happening, e.g. penny going to the arctic to visit her grandparents and getting kidnapped by a seal murdering (?) gang, there was also one where she got hit by a car, became paralysed and someone kidnapped her dogs at the same time, lets not forget the one where she stole a pig from a farm, and her boyfriend was introduced in one of the early books and the plot was that he was trying to steal a dolphin.

I miss Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side! This game was way ahead of its time and is the best otome I've ever played out of hundreds. The combination of strategy, touch feature, the guys voice your name (almost all otome still don't have this feature), dressing up, and classic visual novel response options. I freaking love this. And besides, the early 2000s japanese aesthetic is just comfy. This game is so lighthearted and always cheered me up.

YES BITCH I had almost every Edmark educational game. Love these games. I had a sandbox set up to be able to run these old games on my win7 a few years ago. Was so worth going back to play the games bc my old memories were fully refreshed. It's nice to have them less fuzzy in my mind.

JazzJackrabbit 2 was also mentioned, love it.
I loved KidPix and A to Zap as well, the latter is an alphabet-based mini game situation similar to your pic related.

There was also Thinking Things series. I remember one of them had you making international sales to random animals and stuff, things got complicated as you moved up lol.

There was also Living Books which was a point and click style storybook game. Very fun and played almost all of those as well.

My obscure contribution is… POLDY, motherfuckers. This was a massive set of books on all sorts of early learning topics complete with fully voice acted cassette tapes and other materials like a cool memory game.


Also there are a few educational games I have never managed to find the names of, from my childhood:

>One of them had a watercolor-like color scheme and had a minigame about putting frames of a butterfly going through metamorphosis in order. It also had a minigame about dressing for the weather. Maybe classical music in the background. That's all I've got on that one.


>Point and Click style game with a shot of a barn and I think another shot of… an airplane? Fuck. So fuzzy.

Me and my group of 4 friends were obsessed with the movie/books. We were all going to be on vacation for most of the summer so we decided to do a "sisterhood of the traveling notebook" since this was before texting was widespread and not all of us had cellphones to communicate. So we sent a composition journal (pic related lol) around and would write entries and notes and draw pictures and whatnot and send it to the next girl. It was very wholesome. I remember I ended up with it at the end, I wonder if my mom still has in a memory box somewhere.

No. 394918

I will borrow the description from a 'Most distressing Jacqueline Wilson books" listicle:

"Now we come to think of it, Love Lessons was extremely problematic. (But it was also great).
The book centres on a 14-year-old girl called Prudence, who is home-schooled because of her horrid father's distrust of mainstream education.
But after he has a stroke, she's sent to the local public school. Here, she starts up a very worrying relationship with a pervy art teacher called Mr Raxberrry (or 'Rax').
To cut a long story short, they end up snogging in a car, she tells him he loves him, someone from the school overhears, and Prue gets packed off for another school while weirdo Rax LITERALLY GETS TO KEEP HIS JOB".

So I guess you can say the topic of the book is child grooming, but it's written from the perspective of the enamored protagonist and it never feels like the art teacher is condemned for 'falling in love' with his student. The book is great as always, but also really problematic for that reason. Even if it was not meant to portray the predatory relationship in a positive light, a young girl reading this will probably not get this and relate to the protagonist and feel angry at the world tearing her and her groomer apart.

I could never find these books in my country. My cousin who grew up in the states brought this one over as a gift and I loved it.

Any Irish anons remember this series? Every book was about a different girl who lived in the same place over a period of two thousand years.

You're right. The discussion on internet nostalgia should stay in the thread where people have been actively talking about it for months, instead of trying to start a completely new discussion here, in a thread that was dead for 5 months straight.
>does anyone remember x website!!!
yeah probably, in the thread where people have been talking about it for the past 3 months

And also her all-white bedroom that they nicknamed the "iPad" before that product actually existed, afaik.

Weird blogging but I didnt read the last couple of books in the series until a couple of years ago and it actually kinda made me misty eyed.

Is the Vocaloid community still a thing? I also remember the time when I was 12 years old and got into anime and manga through One Piece and Vocaloid. I was a true weeaboo too, with the dirt, sweat and awkwardness included. I was disgusting smh.

However, I think the Vocaloid community is not as huge as before?? I know we have a Vocaloid producer thread, but it seems the fandom has been dying since 2015 maybe?? Ha, I miss the old summer days, downloading shitty quality japanese songs on my old MP3 and browsing internet forums lol.

I feel that so much lol. Honestly I still go back and listen to those shitty vocaloid songs that were tuned very poorly, but I think back in the day it was way harder to tune them, idk. I could just be talking out of my ass.

The thing that really got me recently was hearing that Wowaka died. I loved listening to world's end dancehall and rolling girl as a kid, and recently I found out he had a band so I was looking forward to more of his music.
