    Hime-chan no Ribon

    Has anyone seen this show before? How good would you say it was? The premise seems interesting to me, but at 61 episodes I am questioning whether I want to start it or not. Here's a group who presumably took the DVDs and ripped them, providing all 61 episodes raw in a 15-gigabyte package...

    Bad Sportsmanship

    Suppose there are two people, A and B, who agree to play a friendly game of chess together. As the game opens, it looks as though the players are evenly matched. Gradually, the game shifts towards Player B's favor. In the early middle phase of the game, Player A discovers that one of his...

    Error Made in Merger of Threads

    Someone on the staff has decided to merge and/or splice threads together which offer the same magazine, comic, movie file, etc. While this may benefit the community in the long run, there are some kinks which need to be worked out. Kinks I'm not sure the staff member who is doing this is aware...

    I wasn't sure where to post this, mods. I just finished watching the film Kisaragi and I have to say ... wow, what an amazing film. It was like watching one of Oscar Wilde's plays were it on steroids. Amazingly well-written, amazingly well-executed mixture of comedy, drama, and mystery. And...

    Final Fantasy statistics, Searching for

    I tried Googling these this morning with no luck. Thought I might try asking if anybody here knows where I might find the answers to these questions ... 1. What are the sales for each Final Fantasy game? (main series only) Preferably in the form of a bar graph. 2. What are the...

    Baby Moderators?

    See for why I wrote this thread. When I say "forums" in this post, I am referring to Akiba-Online's various forums. I am not talking about websites other than Akiba-Online. The forums I go to here aren't lacking in moderators. However...

    Star GIFs?

    I was wondering if the forum software came with a star icon; or if it doesn't, if it wouldn't be too hard to implement it. Why: just for the visual effect of posting :star::star::star::star::star: and seeing instead of saying things like "5 stars" or "5.0" or "5/5", etc. I dunno. Just a...

    Equality Now, RapeLay, & the American Public

    Walls of text have the nasty habit of scaring most people away. So ... I'll keep it brief. Do you know Equality Now? If not, look them up. Do you know RapeLay? If not, look it up. Do you remember our discussions on Akiba-Online about this matter? If not, look them up via our Search feature...

    What is your highest degree of education?

    Select the one choice which best describes your highest level of education. Purpose: I thought it'd be fun to see if our figures are similar to those of society-at-large or not; and if not, in what ways they differ. This is not a scientific study. It is non-random. It does not check against...

    Too Much Info, Girl!

    Someone I know on Facebook updated her status to say (and I quote): Okay, now before you jump to any hasty conclusions, let me keep filling you in with some very important details about this girl. First of all, she had a bad reputation (spread by the other girls in our class) for having...

    !&^#$^*#&*( Why can't I sort by popularity!?!?!?

    I've looked and looked and looked all over the Pixiv pages for a way to sort images by popularity and I just can't seem to find one. So I've been stuck looking at images in the order they've been uploaded to the site -- a really crummy way to try and find good artwork! Anybody know (a) how I...

    "I Can't Help You. Sorry!" feature discussion

    One of my pet peeves when I post a request on a forum is when I get a reply from somebody who doesn't know the answer. It's polite of them to have at least let me know that they cared to try for me, but it always gets my hopes up and then dashes them against the rocks -- and that feeling sucks...

    Wiping the $late Clean?

    This is just a hypothetical for each person to ponder on his own: Imagine if worldwide the people of Earth were to wipe the economic slate clean? Everyone's savings would be transformed to $0. Everyone's debts would be transformed to $0. Lives ruined, lives restored. Imagine if we just agreed...

    Depression Ends Footballer's Life

    Robert Enke had it all. He was the national goalkeeper for Germany's professional soccer team. He had 45,000 adoring fans. He was married. He had what every guy wants: a means to survive comfortably, a beautiful partner to fuck, and the respect of other human beings. And yet Robert Enke threw...

    Old Folks' Views on Piracy?

    Why do JAVs not have substantial stories but eromanga do?

    You can't say "they don't have a story because they don't need one." That's not really an answer. There are plenty of things which we don't need in life which we have anyway. And you can't say it's because a story wouldn't be appropriate for porn, either, because obviously it is: just look at...

    America's Struggle with Sexual Expression

    Exhibit A: Americans are fearful of "licentious" material like hentai, video games with sex in them, or explicit sex scenes with full nudity in rated R or PG-13 films. Exhibit B: Americans have no problem selling this at the check-out aisle of every grocery and supermarket in the nation...

    Ring on the middle finger?

    Asked a girl out today. She had no rings on her hands except one -- on her third finger of her left hand. I asked if she wanted to go get coffee. She said she was in a relationship. ... is there something I should know? Is the middle finger the new fourth finger? Is it the "I'm not married...

    I found Haruna Ai's music video for Natsu Dekoboko Love on Youtube; unfortunately, the resolution of Youtube videos is extremely low, even for their allegedly "HD" versions, and I am really wanting a nice 720p (or higher) version of this music video for the purpose of taking some screencaps of...

    Note: This is a Japanese language thread, not an anime thread, despite the subject matter involved. Hence why I posted the thread here.

They are visually-upgraded re-releases of the original Gold and Silver games from 1999 (JP) / 2000 (USA) but with some slight alterations...

    Blocking threads? o.o

    I have never been a big fan of the Block User feature. I think it flies in the face of everything a message board stands for. We come here to communicate with one another. It's dumb of the blocker whenever he blocks somebody because then he looks like an idiot when the blockee makes posts (or...

    Maid Make-over!

    From what I could understand, this was a pretty funny piece, but if I got anything wrong, feel free to correct me. The show begins with one of the hosts explaining that they have a stage somewhere else in the studio and, gathering in front of that very stage at this moment, is a collection of...

    The Good: not just the device, but the program itself (Wii Sports Resort) is very lifelike under certain scenarios.

    ボイン vs 巨乳

    Just curious. Today I watched an episode of FMA, and in it one of the characters asks: お前、ボイン、好きだろう? Then the other guy answers, 大好きっす、ボイン! And then the word ボイン echoes a few times for comedic effect. I always thought ボイン was just an adjective that was used to describe a girl's big breasts...

    I Need Help Backing Up PS2 Save Files

    I am playing a game which creates one save file. This one save file contains within it five in-game save files. The limit of save files per memory card is therefore five. I wish to bypass this because the game is quite long and I'd like to have 10+ save files to make for a more fluid experience...

    Anime Coloring Book

    Cheek bandage?
