M-my name is Yuno, and I think every single one of you should try harder!. I mean... you're... you're all so slow and lazy and... N-NOT THAT I THINK THERE'S A PROBLEM WITH THAT but I... I think you need to do better! You're the people who've everyone's forgotten and I... I think you have the great potential to do what's right! I mean have any of you had any friends? I mean, I guess it's fun talking to people online, but you need to make honest friends! Please I don't want to see you start getting angry at each other for no reason.

Please don't ignore me. I know I have my own problems. I have a lot of them in fact. I was invited into an art school I don't deserve, and made a bunch of friends who treat me better than they should. What do you do?, other than "fapping" and "being so ronrey" which I don't quite understand, I'm sorry. I also don't get that good of grades, and I have a very good neighbor who's fun to be around (she just ate my entire supply of noodles, she's very short on cash I'm afraid). But as I was saying, you all must try and be better people! ... please? Thank you for listening, I hope.

I'm a senior and have completely wasted my college experience. I've never gone to a party or even set foot in a dormroom (commuter). I also didn't get involved on campus, just went to classes and went home. I didn't even bother to get my picture taken for the yearbook, so I won't appear in it. I also haven't made any real friends that I talk to outside of class. And of course I've never gotten laid either.

I'm so ronery I began talking to a guy on a gay bear website that's 25 years older than me, 1000+ miles away, then like after just a month and a half bought plane tickets (on a $7/hour budget) and flew to stay with him for a week (and took the week off, risking losing my job to do so). Then I flew back less than a month later for Christmas. Then found out he just wanted sex and I made a big deal out of it and cried and tried to drink myself to death.

Usually, when people look at me, they're just looking at a facade. How I look at any given moment is a direct
reflection of the people around me. If I stick out too much, someone might approach me. I can't let that happen. If I'm in a group of loud people, I'll be loud too. If everyone else is laughing at crude jokes, I'll laugh as well. I was always changing, like a chameleon, just so I could keep away from small talk. But one of the most amazing feelings is being with a girl who can see straight through that facade. She knows you dislike small talk, so she avoids confronting you. And yet, she's always nearby, in case you feel like having a menial conversation about the weather,
or how the leaves look gently drifting to the ground. She knows that you don't want other people's help, so she'll try to stay out of the way. But when you're down, she'll be the first one to hold out her hand. When you walk in the park during autumn, she wouldn't ask if she could tag along with you, rather,
she'd just walk alongside you without consent, without a word. She wouldn't say anything, but she would lightly hold your arm, and give a gentle smile toward you. And as you walked in the cool, brisk afternoon with her, leaves falling around you like snow, you'd feel your stress, your worries, and your fears slowly melt away. Your mouth would slowly tug at its corners, a sensation that you may have long forgotten. You'd take a look at her face, the warm face that was smiling at the simple treasure of life itself.
And after all this time, you could finally feel yourself returning a genuine smile as well.

/jp/ is a lonely path. It is also the ultimate humanitarian path. We forgo social interaction in hopes that someone out there in the world will take our share. Such is the sacrifice that we must endure when we take up the banner of /jp/. Our path is a solemn path. We do not expect to experience happiness. We do not expect companionship. We do not expect any interaction with the opposite sex. Instead we live our lives through the eyes of the protagonists in visual novels. Once we see through their eyes, we cannot turn back and hope to experiencing those things through our own mortal flesh. In becoming one with /jp/ we shed our fragile bodies for the eternal body that is a VN protagonist.

It was my birthday recently, I didn't get a single happy birthday email from anyone, not even my sister. I was expecting to get one from this girl I used to talk to daily, but I kind of lost touch with her and I doubt she even remembered. She even mailed me a birthday present once. The last time, I talked to her, she just wanted me to play some shitty game with her and I don't have time to play anything anymore, and all we ever talked about was games, so without that there's little conversation to be had. I'm kind of dreading running into anyone from high school when I go back home for summer break soon.

I noticed today that Kaoru from Amagami looks just like my sister, especially the hair.

>> No.2371082

>>2370971
Would you please elaborate?

Social interacting is just a pain, I'd rather just stay away. It's awkward to look at people. All the mistakes they make and their obscene behavior is enough to put me in a bad mood. It can ruin my mood for weeks.
I'm a virgin, of course, but that's because I'm mostly asexual. I stopped giving a damn a long time ago. Girls have confessed to me several times when i went to middle/high school, but i ignored them because i had never fallen in love before and i was afraid i would just disappoint and hurt them. I was also too good a person to take advantage of them.
My forced personality is pretty well-liked, and my appearance is average. People think I'm funny, but i never laugh myself.
I don't know if i should consider myself a sociopath, but I'm mostly apathetic. I never get really happy, and i never get really sad. I'm just somewhere in between. Some dull kind of emotion... It's pretty boring. Horror is the only emotion i can really feel, and I've started to notice how all other feelings become something to closely resemble horror the stronger they get. But it's still entertaining, nonetheless.
The last time i cried, which was about half a year ago(i haven't cried for several years before that), i was smiling like an idiot while my tears were streaming down my face. It was so damn entertaining. I wish I could experience that more often, hence my liking to VN's and eroge. They tend to get pretty emotional, and it seems like i get closer every time i read a sad one.

I think I will end up all alone. I am 23 years old and weigh 220 pounds and am short. I have a 5 inch cock. I have never been on a date with a girl ever in my life. I have never kissed a girl, never hugged one and to this date I do not think a single girl has had any feelings for me. I mostly just try to live on by myself and do some stuff of my own and so I have very very few friends. I go online and talk about my "girlfriend" with some guys showing them pics of some girl from the net. It makes my life that much easier to have atleast someone believe that I might have a girlfriend and am not the pathetic loser that I am. Sad uh? I have very low self confidence and I can never talk to a girl without acting weird. I have been teased mercilessly for being fat and the scars are there and I think they will be forever. I was the only child of parents who were too ignorant to even realize that I had problems. I have never talked about my feelings or insecurities to anyone, I never had anyone to talk to. I am lonely, fat and depressed. I feel miserable for being fat and for having a small cock. I know no normal girl will ever like me. I am too bad with people to make friends. So, I resort to what I know to go on living this shitty life. I will probably eat more and more, smoke more and more, watch more and more porn and go on chatting to guys claiming some girl from the net as my girlfriend.Somebody kill me now.

I am still of the belief that the true otaku are the ones who are ronery not by choice, but are ronery because of crippling social phobias or a complete lack of social skills.

For these people, the 2-D isn't merely a substitute, it is all they have. There is nothing else for them, no hope at the end of the tunnel. There is no escape ladder for them if one day they change their mind and decide they wanted to have a relationship with the 3-D, like the person you described. The true otaku feels the crushing reality that they will never have a relationship as long as long as they live, regardless of whether or not they desire one.

Not having friends or having very few friends is so nice. I don't feel pressure to entertain anyone or live up to some arbitrary standard/expectation.

Birthday presents? I could care less. I haven't received a gift that actually meant something in years. If I want a new pair of anything, I'll buy it myself.

I'm still open to the idea of a relationship, however I do not actively search anything out. If it happens, it happens. Great. If not, then that's great as well.

I'm just trying to take it as easy as possible.

I pedal the last stretch uphill. I can't help but notice that lately it doesn't leave me as tired or out of breath. It's been a few years trekking the deserted coasts after all, my legs are not what they used to be. Stepping off the bicycle, I look at the outstretching view. I'm standing on what used to be a mountain, but now I can feel the sea breeze hitting my face.

The smell of the ocean reminds me of my first days in this forgotten land. Japan hasn't been the same since the storms, and returning home is now almost impossible.
Or that's what I like to tell myself. I'm sure that if I looked hard enough I would find one of the last transports to the other side of the ocean, but there was really no point.
The same stories all over the globe, or at least those were the last reports.
Right before they shut down the internet, and 4chan with it. Now, my Anonymous status means nothing, the life I knew gone, and my only goal now is to find that mythical place before we fade out.
I look upwards to the sky, watching the clouds pass by lazily. I miss them. I wonder where the rest of us are. Lost, thrown all over the planet, and with no way to contact each other. Maybe some are traveling with me, no way to tell. Of course, looking for that cafe is popular. I have already run into otakus, their heaving and wheezing easily recognizable.
They are not so common now.
I draw a sip of the water bottle. It was a good idea to ride a bike instead of driving a motor. A pre collapse physique wouldn't be able to deal with this new world.
Taking a last, long look at the crashing waves, I start to pedal again. I'll keep looking for that place, that cafe attended by someone who might not even exist. All I need before seeing humanity's last throes is to drink a cup of coffee at Cafe Alpha.
It might take me ten more years, and I might not even find it at the end. The bike goes faster, gaining speed downhill. I'm not in a rush; she will wait until I get there.

I've always liked the subject. I like History in general, particularly civic history, as in, the history of towns and cities and their accompanying urban landscapes.

Ancient History appeals more to me than modern because I'm a romanticist at heart and because Ancient History is harder than modern History to study as well.

Nothing has killed ronery. To the contrary, ronery pervades all of /jp/. The general assumption is that even if not everyone isn't a NEET, everyone experiences ronery and prefers 2D to a certain extant. There is no way to understate how extraordinary this is: not even old /a/ had taken it this far. The only thing missing are the ronery threads themselves, a pointless exercise in something that, as the OP stated, we already take for granted.

>> No.2371623

>>2371592
With time, things develop. This is very basic ipso facto logic.

But what does that entail for something like a large imageboard? It means it becomes less of a community and things fracture. Think of it like a country. Atomization occurs. You have the large urban centers of /b/ and /v/ and /a/ and so on, and then the outlying townsteads and villages such as /jp/ and /an/.

With time, and with repetition, formulaic tendencies start to emerge in threads as well.

One of these was the advicefag in ronery threads. His 4chan role was to give out advice to ronery people, and so he became part of the board's zeitgeist in a way. Whenever there was a ronery thread advicefaggotry followed because it was a profitable way of garnering replies and an e-peen.

Why do you think most normalfags are tripfags for example?

Those are the people that killed ronery, not me.

Early on in ronery thread's history (and I mean really early, pre-split late night /a/ early) the advices were actually good. People who were advicing was either anon fortunate enough to be in relationship or just very sensitive normalfags. It was basically like married anon giving you relationship advice and it really cheered people up.

Then shit happened and it became all "you're a faggot, if you were a real man here's what you need to do to get them sluts in bed, trust me I've slept with 100+ animu fangirls"

It has little to do with morality and everything to do with aesthetics. Previous sexual experience not only complicates any sort of narrative framework for a romance, but also kills any sense of purity or innocence we might have had, which are the qualities we seek the most fervently.
