Post cool /ar/ related stuff you've found in the wild at yard sales, thrift stores and the like. I was surprised to run across this today.

>>1394 I've never really looked into buying older anime and manga, it was never really something on my radar. The last thing I did find was probably a Trigun DVD Boxset for £15 back in 2016. It's sadly a USA only DVD but the boxset itself is really cool. Pic related was a listing on Ebay for £125. Can't believe a random impulse buy could be worth so much. I guess I did also buy a Gunsmith Cats Omnibus for £12 back in 2019 but that was at a con. Also, I might as well add that back in 2017-19 there used to be a small Japanese bookshop that seemed to sell tons and tons of manga that was surprisingly unknown in my area. I didn't even know about it until coming across it randomly. You could get really good deals for manga (in Japanese) that I imagine were around the same price it would be IN Japan. I bought a volume of Ten for a friend for £2. I also remember finding a massive Kaiji manga boxset for around £30, looking back I should've bought it since it was brand new. It's sadly gone now and replaced with a bubble tea/karaoke place which I've gone to several times, it depresses me but I guess it was wayyyy too good to be true and still around after I found it.
>>1426 I paid 200 bucks for that when it was new. Still go it. Collecting old manga can be fun, but you'll very often run into a problem where most of the volumes can be had for peanuts but then some asshole is trying to charge and arm and a leg for the one or two volumes you're missing.

Nexus clash anon 06/19/2022 (Sun) 20:33:26 No. 1406 [Reply]
Game Link: https://nexusclash.com/clash.php Have you heard of Nexus Clash? I've been playing it for around a month and it's fun.It's essentially a free to play text browser based PvP MMO that you can play in any browser. Think something like Urban Dead except it's a fantasy game. It's got a deep class system based on morality (evil, good or neutral) where you can become an angel, a demon or a superhuman based on what alignment you are. Some classes such as lich (a neutral mage class) allows you to build undead armies from players you have killed, while others such as corrupters (evil class) can corrupt players or players minions and pets. There's a plethora of classes such as revenant (basically a creature of the night, have skills that allow you to track players who have killed you or people you know, or eternal soldiers - masters of any sort of human combat be it guns, hand to hand or melee, to archangels - high ranking angels that can command other angels to some degree. (Here is a list of all the classes. https://wiki.nexusclash.com/wiki/Classes ) A big thing is after a few years one side of the game (either evil,Neutral or good) wins the game and the game resets with the winning side helping to structure the new game map. If you do play, I highly suggest reading a new player guide https://wiki.nexusclash.com/wiki/New_Player_Guide Map of game: https://nexusclash.com/clash.php?op=map Picture is a retro anime character I created in game
>>1406 Looks neat
>>1407 It's really fun. It's kind of complicated to start off in but if you join a faction and their discord almost always there's tons of people to help you out with answers to questions

/ar/t and oekaki thread! ranchan 04/10/2022 (Sun) 23:42:55 No. 966 [Reply]
Let's make /ar/t! This can be traditional, digital, animated, anything goes. I've been working on learning how to draw decently myself (pic very much not related), so giving feedback to your fellow anons is appreciated. I've also implemented oekaki into the posting form in case you ever want to make simplistic drawings (i did one here based of an old guide) this post was delayed a week because oekaki kept breaking but it works well now... >NOTE: currently if you upload an image at the same time as a drawing, you will lose the drawing, so don't add files with your drawing post

What do you guys think of Go Lion?
>>733 idk never watched it. Is it good?
>>733 If one has never seen most super robot shows that came out around the time then this could leave a false impression on Japanese super robot shows, golion had more unusually horror elements

Best Patlabor Episodes anon 01/08/2022 (Sat) 07:04:15 No. 6 [Reply]
What's everyone's favorite episode of Patlabor? For me it's a tossup between one of the goofier episodes like the ones where they go into the gator labyrinth and SV2's Longest Day from the original OVA.

Honestly I'm surprised Minipato never went anywhere. It's rather charming and I could have seen it being more than just three theatrical shorts. I get that the series was pretty done by this point but it would have been nice if each character had gotten to narrate their own episode.
Friendly reminder there's currently someone translating the manga! Go check that out if you haven't yet.

The range in quality in the official Patlabor artbooks are hilarious. You go from great stuff like the first two images to... well, take a look,
>>1357 that's not bad art though. it's just c.g probably good for its time too.

What did she mean by this?

>>739 That sounds like a lie or a lot of cope. They sleep facing each other holding hands. It never went full gay because Chiho thought it would scare people away, so Ikuhara put as much romantic subtext as possible into the series
>>742 they never went full gay because it would not make sense for their characters to act like that. retard chiho saito wasnt the arbiter
>>746 >chiho saito wasn't the arbiter No but bepapas were a team and they all had their say. This is literally confirmed by interviews with Ikuhara and Saito that she was the one to stop it being gay. The reason why the movie is gay is because it was unrestrained Ikuhara. >it would not make sense for their characters to act like that Did you even watch the show
