Welcome To The NHK No.417

What do NEETs think of Welcome To The NHK?

No.419

I enjoyed it when I watched it recently. Being set in the mid 2000s, it has a charm the same story set in today's world wouldn't have.

No.420

I enjoyed watching it years ago, but for some reason it gave me immense anxiety and made me depressed while I watched it. No idea why

No.421

>>420
Same here.

No.422

>>419
I agree.

No.431

>>419
yeah, a good product of its time
>>420
same, I remember not wanting to keep watching it the next day after I watched the first 3 episodes. but after I got over it, it was a nice ride.

No.432

also the mmo arc was the best

I haven't. I actually saw a hard copy on sale at a bookstore, but it was the Vietnamese translation.

I have, I still think the anime is the superior version though

Why do people romanticize the mid-2000s so much?

Everything went to shit after the 2005-2007 period.

they were the last years before the internet took over, it was a nice middle ground between technology and real life but after 2010 the internet became a part of real life, I knew it was all over when I heard my parents say the word ¨meme¨. I also like the dark/edgy aestethic from the mid 2000s, elfen lied, death note, the nhk ed, guilty gear +r, etc.
>>451
don't be so negative.

No.454

>>453
not that anon but i fully agree with you, after 2010-2011 the (normies) began infesting the internet and ruining it, i dont even know what websites i can go to that really relish in tradional internet culture.

No.457

I listen to the OP almost every month, it still makes me feel stuff.

I have noticed an interesting trend about this, there seems to be a lot of sympathy for anti-technology (both from bipartisan reactionaries who want to return to simpler times and people who dislike it for destroying a lot of jobs) views on the internet and I am sure the irony of this is not lost on the adherents.
I just find it amusing that almost everything anyone could ever want is at your fingertips, usually for free but people find problems with it, this isn't a shut up and be happy post, I'm genuinely curious about this phenomenon because it's interesting.
I would dismiss it as a subculture like the cyberpunk weirdos but it's even in the mainstream with the big social media sites losing significant users.

No.458

The norms ruined the internet sure, but it's not like most of them chose to. My Boomer mother who might as well be a grandmother except she's never getting grandkids only uses the internet to check her email for church bulletins. Our family is very dysfunctional so the last time she got to use a computer it was in a class with Windows ME. People like her are forced into using the internet because everything is done through there now. You can't even apply for a job without it.
>>457
People cannot handle the truth. That truth in this case is too much knowledge similar to oversocialization. This also includes finding out how doomed you really are despite all the online advice on pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. It's also a lot easier to pretend someone is out there for you without having seen the average social media post. People today may "live like kings" but do they really? Quality of live isn't free even on the internet which is why most websites are shitholes. It's draining being forced to interact with ugliness through a screen.

Am I wrong though?

Not every thread needs to be about the decline of the internet.

No.464

>>453
>Everything went to shit after the 2005-2007 period.

The decline started in 2008/2009 but things for the most part were still pretty good back then it wasn't until after early 2010 that everything started going to complete shit and by 2012 we had lost everything and the world started becoming what it is today and the old internet was officially dead.

You're clearly younger than I am. But I can see where someone who is would be coming from with that statement. Things didn't hit a whole new level of just plain awful until after 2012. Almost feels as if the world truly did end that year. I'm glad that a lot of people can acknowledge how bad the internet is though. It doesn't have to be a negative like >>463 tried to pin it has a negative situation. It can be a chance of those who want to reject the modernism of today to change the shape of our own corners of the internet for the better as well as educate those who are younger and didn't get to experience the glory days. Maybe even shift things further than we can fathom for a better tomorrow. I don't know.

No.479

Everyone knows the internet went to crap because of Shii promoting Yukkuri abuse.

No.483

>>469
i dont mean to be pessimistic but I really dont think theres any chance of the old internet coming back. People like us are relegated to websites like this with a dozen or so other people on them posting once a day if youre lucky. Having a slow site isnt a bad thing, but it would be nice to be a little more active. Id say our best bet is to somehow get these smaller sites a little better known, I think the advertisements constantly on the board are faggy and annoying, but I would be lying if I didnt say Ive checked out and even stayed at some websites because I saw them advertised

No.484

I'm always usually pessimistic, so no need to worry about coming off that way. I have been trying to keep a small glimmer of hope despite understanding full well that it's futile. I agree, it's comfy being slow but wanting to have a discussion will remain constant at times. It would be nice to get this place more well known without bringing along a lot of bad problems with that though.

No.485

The animation got distracting by the second half.
The suicide pact thing made me cry.
That's all I remember.

I am 27 and have been using the internet and computers since i was a toddler in the mid 90s.

No.487

honestly the anime declined after the suicide island episode. I dont know what it is but the MMO arc was total shit in my eyes. I dont knwo what it was about it but it marked a serious tonal shiftt, but maybe it was just cope from my end.

No.488

>>485
the mmo neet was my favorite part. Even more than the suicide pact. I also loved the ending and I really thought sato was going to die when the music started playing, it was really epic and I cried (again). sometimes I open the folder with the anime and watch a random episode until I get bored, is more ¨cartoony¨ and less serious than I remember when I watched it for the first time.

You were using the internet and doing anything relevant at 2-4 years old. Sorry, that just isn't even a true statement at all. I myself was a kid during that time and didn't even start having any relevancy with my computing until closer to around '97/'98. Had my first computer in 1995 with the popularity of Win95.

Well you can believe whatever you want but it is true i have no reason to lie i have been using computers and the internet since 1996/1997.

Fun times. I would watch my dad program FORTRAN in the mid nineties. I didn’t pick up any programming of my own until a few years later in the early twenties.

No.530

The MMO arc felt like the story getting derailed, honestly. Just a distraction to the inevitable end of most NEETs.
If you work you die but you die if you don't work, even if it's just part-time.
