It's not a very long webcomic yet. It just has that Otoyomegatari/Berserk quality where every page takes dozens of days due to its intricacy. At least, that's what I'm charitable enough to assume about the artist.

It was an Australian forum show where the topic was obesity. He was a personal trainer and the host asked him what he thought about the lifestyle of a grossly obese panelist. He said that it was fine if she was healthy and so she starts ranting about how talking about health was itself a prejudiced concept because a thin person wouldn't be asked if they were healthy. Pic was his reaction while she was complaining.

Riding Bean movie is based on the Riding Bean manga by Kenichi Sonoda, featuring a getaway driver known a Bean Bandit. It was short lived, but still fun. Sonoda spun-off the much longer, and even better, Gunsmith Cats manga from Riding Bean and re-invented Rally as the new main character, but Bean Bandit is still a strong supporting character. Incidentally, there's a Gunsmith Cats OVA series that's also worth checking out. The whole manga is basically /k/ porn.

The general gist is that freeform roleplay is full of edgelord powergamers that any fight will be nothing but each opponent being so fast as to appear behind the other for the start of every action.

Without stats, freeform RP lends itself to a variety of pitfalls, such as there being no clear indicator as to which character is stronger, so any confrontation is an exercise in endless ass-pullery

said, on Gaia online it devolves into a game of oneupmanship. One time I was in a super hero rp on there and every new character was more and more special than the last.
My characters were a person permanently stuck in wolfman mode, a mage with a talkative demon inside her head, and a "Purge the Mutants and Xenos" Space Marine dropped into a modern day city that had the largest concentration of meta-humans in the world apparently.
This was before I knew what 40k was so his stats were this
Powers: Super Strength, Endurance, his total conviction to the cause of humanity renders him immune to mental manipulation. He is also very tall, a full grown woman coming up to his waist
Weakness: His single minded devotion towards pure humans (those not born with powers) can lead him to be easily manipulated and he is slow unless he is bullrushing someone. His height makes it near impossible for him to hide, that and he never takes off his armor since it is grafted (except for the helmet) to his body.
Equipment: Powered Armor, Scripts of Execution, Energy Mace that deals more damage against non humans, blast shield.

They don't even need to be edgelords.

It's just that freeform often falls into the trap of "I hit you!" "No, I've got a bulletproof vest." "Well, I've got Armor-piercing bullets!" mentality if you're not doing it with properly trained people.

So, you can imagine that in a free-form game, one of the players says "I blink out of reality and appear behind him." "Well, I blink out of reality and appear behind HIM." "WELL, I BLINK OUT OF REALITY AND APPEAR BEHIND HIIM" ad nauseum.

I actually run into a similar problem in my work, since I work with an Improv troupe, and some people refuse to acknowledge that a character they are portraying is in the wrong, or refuse to acknowledge potential solutions, choosing instead to shoot them down. ("We need the coconut in that tree!" "I'll cut it down with this axe!" "It's too hard to cut down!" ..."Well, then, I'll climb it!" "It's too slick!" etc, until there's no way to get the coconut, and therefore no way to have the scene pay off.)

Same. I had an imaginary kingdom of wolf tailed, angel winged (otherwise human) people who fought a war against dragons and had all sorts of ridiculous magic and fought in units of magitech arquebusers under magical moving domes. I ended up in an argument with a kid who made up a nation with soldiers who each had pendants that made them totally invincible.

Even then I knew that was bullshit and stopped playing with him.

Man, being a kid was stupid. Kinda fun too, but then I was so miserable from hereditary depression that I was totally convinced I was a wolftailed prince imprisoned in human flesh.

It's pretty much the same sort of bullshit as adults. I hang out on an IRC network where a lot of freeform happens, and I even used to participate in it, but got tired of it over the years. Having been an avid player of tabletop since 1995, the shit these people do just makes me shake my head with a mix of pity and disgust.

It's the same sort of "I teleport behind you" repeating and one-upmanship and pissing contests and ego fights that people in this thread have described, but with the sort of passive-aggression and pretense of maturity that only adulthood can bring. I've managed to gather a small group of people who are also tired of freeform garbage and the clique nonsense and we do regular tabletop stuff.

Some of them who have known nothing but freeform roleplay have told me how refreshing it is to have stable, reliable stats backing up what characters do, and how when dice are rolled, the numbers actually mean something. They told me that it's so nice to be able to look at a sheet and tell exactly what a character can and can't do.

Naturally, I've wholly embraced a completely elitist attitude toward freeform play, and openly mocked it and called it baby games for babies, and said that "Tabletop is what freeform wants to be when it grows the fuck up." I've never been much for deliberate trolling, but it feels so good that I just can't resist it.

It's very nice when all of these things are in place. I've seen it, and it made freeform not only tolerable but also rather pleasant. Characters made mistakes, puzzled things out, cooperated, and I even learned about the concept of "selling" when it comes to acting.

But like you said, rare in the extreme. More often than not, any given freeform community will be a highschool-level clique full of manchildren, actual highschool-aged kids, or a mix of both. It'll be the same ego-stroking pissing contest garbage described in this thread.

Not hugely interesting, I'm afraid.

As I said, she had a big problem with blocking scenes (the bit about the tree and the coconut is almost verbatim from a scene she did.), but she was a very chipper person, always willing to chip in, volunteer to try new scenes, etc.

Eventually, one day, we're in rehearsal. If you haven't done improv rehearsal, you basically just play improv games. That's it. Because knowing the game and being confident with it is basically all you need. We were doing an open scene: meaning there was no gimmick, no necessary component, the two guys on stage just had to make a scene together, give it an arc, and make it funny.

They end up doing a Ghost Hunters scene: you know, two dudes, investigating a creepy house. They kind of crossed it with Ghostbusters, in that they had ghost capturing equipment.

Now, as an improviser, hearing that they HAVE ghost capturing equipment means they should use it. Whether it fails, works, or turns out to be fake, it has to be used.

Which led this girl to start playing a ghost.

Sitting off-stage with the rest of us, she starts off with stereotypical "WooOOOooooOOOoo! Who oooo is iinnnnn myyyy hoooussee?"

And that's fine. Not, strictly speaking, needed for the scene, but nothing out of the park.

THEN, she starts demanding things of them "Yooouuuu muuusssttt bbuuurrrnnnn myyy dddiiiiaarrryyyy!" etc. Again, workable, except she then refuses to tell them where the diary is. STALLING THE SCENE.

So, they do the rational thing: They blast her with the equipment. To which she responds "HA! Missed me!" WHich, since she's not actually IN the scene, she can conceivably do FOREVER, stalling the scene again.

We called the scene like, 20 seconds later, but there was a moment where every person in the room WITH the training looked at each other, with a "Are you fucking kidding me?" look in their eyes.

She stopped coming like, 3 months later.

The man's behavior is certainly out of the ordinary, but to use a word like "freakish" seems unnecessarily judgmental. As does your use of autist as a pejorative. So I would like you to consider the following:

Why does someone expressing extraordinary love for a work of fiction make you uncomfortable? What is it about his behavior that is so disturbing/annoying? You've already admitted that acting on these negative emotions would be inappropriate. So, if the fruit is sour, then why keep the seeds?

We discussed it with her a few times.

It's a problem you can run into in any performance style: tics you're unaware of.
She blocked scenes without thinking about it, because she subconciously assumed conflict was funny.
I have a friend who inhales through his teeth before he talks in scenes. as his brain comes up with the proper response. It makes him sound a little like Snidely Whiplash's dog in Wacky Races.
I spent YEARS unable to make quips or jokes in a scene without looking at the audience, like Jimmy Fallon did on SNL.

But he's having fun in the wrong way
First of all, airshit is airshit. It couldn't be more tryhard and socially unaware if it tried. In general, it's about flashiness and lacks the authenticity of real challenges, like 3-gun or cowboy action. It's people using fake guns with fake equipment shooting fake plastic bullets at close targets and is not worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as sports that use real firearms in competitions designed to represent reality that build skills applicable to real life. It's the same reason target shooting with .22 and 10000$ rifles is bullshit and wrong.
Secondly, he clearly likes anime, which is the most autistic and socially isolating of all media. Furthermore, he is displaying his shame in public, without any of the required self-awareness or self-loathing. He probably lieks loli too, another sin. He is displaying needlessly sexualized images in an inappropriate public space.
His choice of hobbies shows that he is not a functional adult, and is distanced from the real world to a dangerous degree. The lack of socialization should be apparent and concerning to anybody that sees him, and the unhealthy obsession with childlike activities shows that he's unable to move into adulthood and be a fucntional, productive member of society.

This is patently false. A wide array of today's youth (teens to late twenties) has seen anime, having been shown films like those of Studio Ghibli reaching mainstream audiences.

Anime is an art style designed to be as utterly vague as possible, especially with anime girls. It isn't accurate to say that all or most are designed to look as young as possible. Kids usually look pretty weird, gangly and/or chubby. No offense to Murika's youngest elected politician, but she looks significantly younger than your typical anime teenage character.

Just off the top of my head since I haven't found much anime I can watch without raging due to SPASTIC NOISE AND MOVEMENT, take PMMM. Physically, she has a C cup and is generally soft and curvy, not gangly and bony like a real girl her age would be. Mentally, she's likewise very level headed and mature for her age.

Contrast this with le nudist vampire Dracula Vampire Bathory Girl with the Samuel Haight bodyguard, who is indeed all weirdly shaped and bony like a real little girl.

You can generally tell which anime chars are designed to look overly young, because they look fucking strange, like real kids.

Generally, some factors are used as shorthand to indicate that a character is a child and not an adult. These include large eyes and head compared to the rest of the body and lack of secondary sex characteristics, such as enlargement of breasts and hips, and changing distribution of fat in the body. Anime, in particular, tends to avoid many if not all of these in female characters, making them appear more childlike.

The concept of an airsoft marksmanship competition is absolutely asinine. Airsoft guns are terrible for trying to hit a bulls-eye on a standard target.

It's certainly immature to flaunt one's deviancy like a badge of honor, sexual or otherwise, but it's a relatively benign thing. I assume that he feels Misaka has helped him through the trials of life, and that's a good thing to have; not everyone is so lucky. The road to becoming a better, more complete person is long and difficult, and, ultimately, everyone must go at his or her own pace. The process cannot be rushed, and attempting to force it will only make things worse.

As for SJWs, I think they forget that. I've seen a lot of hypocrisy coming from people who shout about tolerance, but refuse to be in the same room with someone for petty political reasons.
