Default Anime is a scourge

When I was in high school instead of learning shit I just read anime newsgroups all day in the hopes that I might be as cool and learned as icons like twoflower and eternal lost lurker

God damn it anime

the anime made me do it the first time.

the second time I done it on my own.

also I got a lot of money out of Newtype USA for a while there, so that's something.

I read all that shoujo manga hoping it would teach me how to win Tenchi's heart, but he just got even more mad at me...

I don't think 2F ever was on RAA* and ELL's newsgroup footprint was fairly small, by his own choice. If you're gonna namedrop, at least research bigger posters, like Blade, Epsi, Galen, KotBR, instead of talking crap

(And it makes you less of a creep than stalking other TTers' to find out their old handles)

Many factors contributed to my virginity lasting until I was 20. I believe Evangelion was one of the most powerful and influential.

I am thankful that the guiding light through my teenage years was profound terror at anything I didn't understand - while this is in part what drove me to anime in the first place (ah, the grotesque! The sublime!), it is also what kept me out of its darker corners. I had to come to Talking Time to learn what Guro was, for example.

I have a long history of not being able to ignore the thought that goes "it can't be that bad."

I learned a lot from the horrifying fanart thread, but apparently not enough.

Super baller song: Moon Princess Halation BGM. Check out that disco bass line. Gets me goddamn pumped

Edit: I was thinking of the wrong song but they're all awesome so it's okay!

Out of instinct I was about to google it. Then I realized what I was doing and quickly decided to do something else so that my sanity might live to fight another day.

For real I wouldn't want to live without a cockhole.

That would be a life of pain/despair/blood poisoning.
