Why aren't you posting GOOD screenshots of Ran
(5.67 MB 1440x1080 mpv-shot0454.png)
>>11 Im posting ones that I find cute, what makes a good screenshot to you?
could you atleast talk about a few episodes or whatever?
>>13 NTA but I'll give it a shot Was always a fan of the tater episode, love me some B movies
>>14 yeah that is a great episode, the first half felt like a twist on western slasher flick tropes which was really interessting. Another good one is 75: no case too small, a bit wonky when you stop and think about the story but a great fun non the less
>>14 I haven't seen Matango, but I felt like I could tell which scenes were direct references anyway. Particularly the ones where Ataru and Mendou were arguing about directions. It also kind of reminded me of the movie Fiend Without a Face
>>15 >slasher flick tropes Not really, except for the group dynamic (the jock, the slacker, the whore and the pure girl; and even here its a bit of a stretch, ran isn't in that episode so no whore) and the secluded location. I would say it's more a supernatural scare movie.

/c/ startet bickering again, can i post my "waifufagging" here? just one more night and i can get home to her frens, im so sick of these stinky old boots and im sick of the sea, i want my forest back, i want to hold my beautiful wife, i want the calming smell of her, i want to shut the world out, just for a moment, i miss the time when i can be left alone with her, just the two of us, just a small fragment of time for us, no yesterday, no tomorrow, just the numbing isolation of my home and her by my side and the gentle whisper of yesteryear from the old speakers.

Does this show ever stop being just 'Ataru does something dickish, then Ataru gets hurt'? The theme song is so charming and fun that I really WANT to like the cute rom-com it promises to be, but 5 or 6 episodes in I'm just left bored and disliking most of the cast. Can someone tell me what they think the best episode is so I can know if it's a show that gets better or if it's just not for me.
(430.25 KB 960x720 mpv-shot0007.jpg)
>>44 'Ataru does something dickish, then Ataru gets hurt' never goes away, but the show varies itself up pretty in concepts and execution pretty often once the rest of the cast is filled out. Don't expect tons of character development, but there are plenty of episodes that break the mould, and even quite a few that are more poignant than funny. Episode 10 is the first one that isn't just hijinks and is one of my favorites.
>>44 Unfortunately Ataru gets worse and worse. Around the 200+ ep mark all he does is molest women and do that stupid laugh when he shows up. NHK did a Rumiko ranking a while ago which you can check out. https://www.nhk.or.jp/anime/rumic/ranking/?cat=episode Best ep for me is the one with Ataru's mom.
>>39 ran Benten kum ouyuki sakura
>>44 The show get's more creative and diverse plot wise as it goes on, animation quality vastly improves as well. About 25-125 is the sweet spot imo.

Been working out more now that I'm back home. Walking a few miles each morning, pull ups in the afternoon, and using an exercise bike at night. I need to torrent more /ar/ music so I can put together playlists...
>>89 Nice job, dude. Been trying to lose weight myself, I live in 14 story apartment block and spend around an hour walking up and down them as exercise. It's the only exercise I do but I try to do it 3-4 times a week. I've been listening to an audiobook myself and find it super easy to digest while doing something as monotonous as stair climbing.
>>90 Good stuff. Consistently is the key to forming healthy habits. A while back I listened to Duncan's history of Rome podcast whenever I worked out, but stopped somewhere in the late republic. Probably should get back into that.

Anyone here fluent in Japanese? For the past few days, I have been working on dumping the text from this pretty unknown DS dating sim (at least in the English speaking communities). I was able to write a python program to decode the message files, but of course they're pure Japanese. I plan to rewrite this game for the desktop platform since trying to fit all of this text back in with only a hex editor seems like a massive pain, especially since I don't know where all the pointers are. If anyone here can help me with the translation work, that would be very much appreciated. The tool and dumped text can be found at https://gitgud.io/ranchan/endtrans

No. Even with the somewhat good reputation that he has with the regulars, he knows he cannot make a thread in his own name. Avatarfags and such personalities are hated by default on anonymous imageboards, and the 2hufag knows this. He just obviously enjoys playing with fire, and is quite adept at it. It's remarkable how little hate he gets despite being the most obnoxious personality on /g/, at least until you came along.

I would like to ask a question to spark discussion again in this board, If the reboot does get popular, how much will the old UY community get affected? Well it get worse or will it get better?
(359.36 KB 645x484 rain.webp)
It's about time this thread gets revived. 4/lum/ has reached new lows. I always wish we saw more of Tsuyuko. She was one of the few girls in the series that had an actually healthy relationship with Ataru, even if it ended really quick.
>>137 It will probably be like what happened with JoJo, where teenagers on reddit and youtube get really obnoxious with it, but they stay separate from grognards like us.
>>137 I'd say it'll stay relatively the same since retro-crush zoomers loved UY for a long time so newfags coming in is no issue. I guess the only difference is that we'll be talking about 2022 reboot I guess. Really wish they just had the characters age or some shit but I'm not mad.
>>137 I think it'll be a wash, unless the reboot actually breaks new ground like following through with that promo image of Benten and Oyuki (presumably) going to school at Tomobiki high. This is basically our Sailor Moon Crystal for now.
>>138 It wasn't that bad until some dude obsessed with nipples shit up the board.
>>139 Thats already been happening, since I've explored that aspect of the community.
>>143 It's really interesting seeing how the community, small as it is, still managed to fracture heavily. The really funny part of course is how 4/lum/ always bitches about reddit while r/uruseiyatsura dosen't even know /lum/ exists.
>>144 Oh no, I disagree. They 100% know that /lum/ exists. At one point they even stole gifs from there.
>>1727 uuuuhhhh you said nail. huhuhuh. And you said thumb huhuh
Come on anons from /lum/, make it faster in here.

>>147 I'm from /lum/. How's it going bunghole? You think the characters would be as endearing as they were back in the 80's?
>>148 we're gonna be talking about the penis
>>149 Tbh, I don't know man, from what I've seen from the trailers it doesn't look so bad. Maybe they will, even if it kind of looks like clown vomit.
>>151 I think the characters would be somewhat altered and less cynical to fit the flavor of the month market but who knows? They rebooted bastard and it was relatively fine to some degree. Maybe UY would be the same.
(418.72 KB 1200x800 FccfFywaUAEyOPM.jpg)
>>149 I honestly don't think it looks terrible, but it will probably be unremarkable if it just follows the manga beat for beat. Now if they take it in an original direction (like this merch art suggests), that could be a lot more interesting.
>>153 honestly, it'll just be boring if they repeat the manga/80's run of the series. I'd like to see some new ideas rather than just the same story pandered towards a zoomer audience but I could care less either way.
>>152 Hope it doesn't get toned down, I love scummy Ataru. Without it, it just won't be the same.
>>154 Agreed, I feel like if the original was completely on point with the manga it wouldn't have been as great.
>>155 don't think Ataru's pervy would be affected since anime protagonists are hornier than ever lol
>>154 Having started on the manga recently but having seen the TV series, it's pretty striking to me just how many of the chapters were improved by the TV show. A lot of the two parters feel about equivalent to the TV show episodes, but some of the smaller one off stories were fleshed out and made a lot more interesting when animated.
>>158 UY works better animated than panel-by-panel. I usually prefer an animated adaptation of gag/romance manga to the real deal because you can expand on it more. (I said expand huhuhuhuh)
>>159 That's what I love about the series. It's action packed gags and violence. It's inspired my work a lot because of it.
>>160 >my work Got any examples? Would enjoy seeing what anons are up to around here.
>>160 that's cool. I always wanted to make manga but I was never cut out for it.
>>161 >>162 Well, uhhh tbh, it's pretty shit. Also I don't make manga, I'm just a novice animator. I like the animated series take on UY's gags and humor.
>>163 being an animator is even more impressive.

It's good to see this place active once again. Been quite busy in my life so I haven't come on much, but I have been lurking on 4/lum/, and it's just sad what happened to that place. I can tell you that I don't have any tolerance for nipple schizos around here. >>153 I saw that, really nice that they're trying something different. Hope it's reflected in the show at some point.

Here's something else interesting I found: The reboot will be 11 minute segments, like the beginning of the original anime. This would make sense if they're trying to adapt the fast paced manga stories more directly versus the slower original anime stories. https://uy-allstars.com/story/ep01/ Rough translations below >EPISODE 1-A >Youth running around >A soft-spoken high school student, Ataru Moroboshi, is chosen to play tag with Ram, the daughter of a demon tribe who has come to invade Earth, and the fate of the Earth. Her childhood friend Shinobu Miyake said, "If you win, I'll marry you." >EPISODE 1-B >desperate situation >Ataru is fed up with Ram interrupting his phone calls with Shinobu every day. The two, unable to make a phone call due to the jamming signals that Ram sends out from the spacecraft to Earth, get excited and decide to meet face-to-face. So I guess they're skipping the oil rain episode... I miss those troopers.

>>166 >A soft-spoken high school student, Somehow, that description doesn't fill me with hope that they're gonna keep Ataru's character intact. My number one concern with this reboot is that they'll dial down his scumbag-ness, but retards on 4/a/ keep sperging out about nipples like fanservice adds anything significant.

Still mad they didn't bring any of the original cast. Honestly I don't mind anything else more than the fact that they didn't bring any cast back, especially since most of them are still active today. This along with all the other stuff, like how they aren't bringing the storm troopers back, changed the ship design choices, etc. makes me think this is somehow Takahashi's middle finger to Oshii for going against what she wanted to do back when the anime was made (even if they now claim it's to be closer to the manga).

Did anyone else find the OP and ED completely soulless? For me it was the worst part of the entire episode. In any case it wasn't exceptional but it was mostly competent. Using Lum no Love Song as a leitmotif for Lum was based and redpilled though, excellent choice.
>>184 It was ok, skipped the EP entirely. I didn't really care for them too much.
I'm just gonna dump my honest opinion one the reboot's first episode. I'll give my pros and cons. Pros: -It was more detailed and nice (background wise) -They gave Lum's father more personally -Voices were pretty spot on -Animation was nice -Lum's bitchiness was thankfully toned down a bit Cons: -It was extremely fast paced especially the second part which is almost forgettable -Not funny tbh (only smiled like once) -Uninteresting generic anime music -Censored (but I could honestly care less) -No Stormtroopers (I mess 'em already) Overall it was alright. 7/10.
God damn does this site feel comfy compared to the absolute warzone that is 4chan's /lum/.

>>186 >7/10 More like a 3-4/10, and not as a comparison to the original, but as a standalone. This is especially true because I don't know how anyone who hasn't seen/read the source material could understand what even went on, much less enjoy or care about it. Most moments were so rushed, that a lot of what was conveyed in the original was missing. Moments of humor were shallow, characters felt bland as shit, and attempts at setting atmosphere fell short (bgm,establishing shots, sound effects, etc.). Not even in comparison to the original, in general everything was just shallow. I'd gripe about changes they've made to characters, but the pacing was so ADHD, I could hardly even discern what they did to the characters; they did a really poor job at character building. Pretty much all that went down was a constant loop of one 3-5 second haha sequence followed by another. This wouldn't be so bad if there was any appealing satire, like in the original, but they took out practically every bit of satire/dark humor, or dumbed it down. For example, they undermined the "I wish I never had you" joke so that it came out less harsh. It's so moefied I can't imagine ever giving a shit about any of the new characters, nor enjoying the humor, even if they could do anything more than emote a face or push a joke in their 3-5 seconds of time before the next characters' turn. At least when the original became a 5 second joke sequence spammer, it still had the satire, atmosphere (especially bgm), and animation to go with it. About the animation, god damn can it be hard to look at. 70% of the time it's sparkly eye rape, and when it isn't, it's generic digital backgrounds. Although you said the backgrounds are a pro, I doubt you payed more than a glance to them, although I don't blame you, since one reason for the ADHD pacing is probably to hide the backgrounds. Pic related shows a couple new backgrounds and an old one. I won't gripe about the characters not contrasting well with the backgrounds because that's pretty much standard. However, you can clearly see the bad contrast of different aspects of the background that were put together for the final thing. For example, in pic related, basically all the uncanny valley, digital bushes, houses, telephone poles, and other infrastructure contrast horribly with the whole thing. But besides that I'd say everything else was good enough; character movements were fine, faces were alright, and there wasn't really much else that stood out as especially low quality. Again though, putting it all together, it was shallow and nothing above a 4/10.

now that old /lum/ has been turned into permanent post reboot anarchy, let's try to capture the spirit of classic /lum/ here by making OC, just like the good old days. here's one of my favorite pieces from the old threads.
>>195 no. Let's just off-topic spam of ed, edd n eddy and beavis and butthead while coomers debate over literal nonsense. Fuck having a good discussion about uy, it's not like we're on a uy board after all.
>>196 Hey man I get the doomposting, but there's no reason to say we can't forge a better /lum/ out here, even if it's slow.
>>193 You make some pretty good points, but can you show me some more examples on the backgrounds being shit? Also a 4 I think is way to low, I would maybe give it a 5 or 6 at best because at least it tried. I'll still hold my 7 because that's just what I think it deserves.

>>1796 >>198 Here's the same rant, but with some nicer spacing, so you could maybe be more bothered to read it. Sorry it's really a pain to proofread from this tiny text box and yet I always forget the simple shit like spacing. Also, to the Admin, sorry for spamming, but I really want to stir up some discussion, yet my paragraphs look like shit. Hopefully, if this doesn't get yoinked, maybe seeing more paragraphs will inspire more people to discuss. Anyway sorry again for spam I'll remember to proofread from now on. (pic unrelated it's just so it looks less like spam) Also would you mind going further beyond "it's what it deserves". You've seen the original so I don't know how you can give the new a 7 in comparison to the original. While I rated it more as a standalone, I'm assuming you're rating it more as a comparison to the original, and not as a standalone. This is because many of your mentioned pros/cons compare the original to the new one, rather than sharing what the show does well/poorly, regardless of the original. And I can't say your 7 is honest, if it's reflecting how well the new compares to the original. Not only does the reboot dampen the scenes that were better in the original, it also cuts out aspects that made the original appealing; it's not only failing at adapting with what it's rebooting, it's also cutting out parts of what it's supposed to be rebooting . By giving it a 7 you're saying it at least does a good job as a reboot, and maybe adds something else on top, but it's failing even as a reboot. As well as this, pretty much all your pros (arguments for the 7) that compare new to old are null. For example, you argue one pro is, "it was more detailed and nice (background wise)", but the original has inevitably better backgrounds (since they were done with more time consuming cel animation, yet under similar time constraints, yet the quality, at the very least, holds up to the modern ones). So you can't say this is a reason why the new compares well to the old. Similarly your other pros, if thought of as comparisons, do not work: "Voices were pretty spot on" but the original voices were definitely better(since they defined the characters and how the new voices were picked); "animation was nice" but the original animation holds a mighty candle to it (while being older). And so, especially because many of your pros for your 7 rating compare the original to the new, your rating itself cannot be honest if it is a reflection of how new compares to the original. However, if you your 7 reflects the reboot's quality as a standalone, then pretty much all your pros don't work, because they compare the original to the new. Your only pro that works to support the reboot's ability as a standalone series is that the animation is nice, meaning it's subjectively nice. That's true, subjectively, but that's hardly enough to say it's a 7/10 as a standalone. Especially since it gives no reason as to why the animation is nice. Basically it insists upon itself meaning the 7/10 insists upon itself meaning your reasoning is "it's good because it's good". That's why I'd really like for you to elaborate.
>>197 I guess so. Still pretty disappointed in the reboot though.
>>200 You can delete your first post and just redo it if you want to change it up. The downwards arrow on the top left of the post opens up a menu that allows you to do so.

>>200 No need to apologize. High quality posts are always appreciated around here, especially in comparison to the kind of stuff people post on 4/lum/. Anyways, here's an idea I've been thinking of to keep /lum/ from feeling stale. While this thread has been pretty good, people don't really like posting in super old threads, and it just turns into a long, long thread of occasional posts here and there that are entirely unrelated to eachother. So what I was thinking was making /lum/ threads cyclical, either with a much lower bump limit (somewhere around 50 posts) or a timed limit (like 2 weeks), after which the thread would be automatically archived. I feel this would help the threads feel fresher and new threads could focus on different characters, elements of the show, or whatever else people feel like talking about. Let me know what you all think of this.

>>203 Great idea, and maybe we could even get a /lum/ general with generic stuff like links to previous threads and more fun parts like a link to a watch party, a gallery of the best oc of the week, topics, or whatever other stuff would be neat in a general. >>202 Thanks I didn't know about that.
>>202 downwards uhuhuhuh. I got a downwards arrow in my pants uhuhuhuhuhuh.

>>200 Sorry if I replied so late, but I agree with your statements. But I will form a quick counterargument that some people would make about your opinion on the backgrounds of the reboot. Many would probably say that having high quality backgrounds won't matter because of how fast the reboot's pace is. On top of that, some people may say that you're nitpicking every last detail of the original so you can give it a much lower rating. Now I don't really believe in that counterargument but I decided to write it out for you so can debate it. As for standalone viewing I can agree that this episode is not very good. I also did rewatch the original's first episode just for reference and I can see how it does things way better the reboot. Like it being actually funny (mostly part 2 of the episode). Overall thou I can understand your arguments on why my ratings for the original are null. I just wanted to give the reboot a shot.

Hope everyone appreciates all the little interface changes I've made around here, mostly just to make everything feel tidier. Also, this thread is going to be archived, probably at the end of the month, since >>>/lum/ is up now (unless people really want it still around). Made some new banners and standardized the look and resolutions of the older ones. We should push to get more users from 4lum on here imo.
>>211 I think it could be moved to /lum/ like that /vr/ thread. Since this thread is currently the most popular one on the site right now.
>>212 That's true. I just want this thread to level off eventually so fresher threads can be made.
