Prepare for more sadness
no sad times, only melancholy
>>206391445I wonder what the hole digging club will be up to in this chapter. Or perhaps the twitter teaser is once a gain misleading and the chapter will not be about the club at all.
>>206391445Is this even deep?, fungi grow on dead things after allThe same with egg girl being a miscarriage
So will we finally meet the girl from Shimeji's past?
I’ve been waiting for a thread all day so that I could tell the anon from last night that I made a friend on ffxiv like I said I would
>>206392493why is this in Spanish and why is it funnier that way
>>206392546not that anon but I would have made it sooner but something something no general threads also nice work
>>206392546That's good to hear.
>>206391445>already the 27thIm terrified how fast time passes
>>206392493>broken spanish.fucking SSLs
For any anons that don't know. Tkmiz mega is kill, but tkmiz pcloud is live. It's got tkmiz art, screencaps, edits, fanart etc.https://e.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=kZDokZ8mIRL93l2Lm8CmfYs5dCybyrduwV
>>206392563mexican dbz autism
>>206392563I don't know why, but the language just tickles my funny bone. Perhaps it's because a little bit of the vocabulary is similar to english, but not enough.>>206392821Not even SSL, I don't speak a word of spanish, I just used google translate, but I think broken spanish fits that silly format.
I wanna read old books with Chito!!!
>>206392880>Tkmiz mega is kill,wait, what? what happened?
>>206393126Of course it would be something dumb like that
>>206393249Anon has been visited and taken away by the party van lads.
>>206393126as long as it didn't include those 2hu doujins I think anon is fine.
>>206392821that's the point of the meh meh
>>206391445What's with lesbians and fish?
>>206394094>he doesn't know
Being a plushie would be pretty good.
Expectation: >>206395411Reality: pic related
>>206395411>>206395816>expecting the notoriously elusive tkmiz to make a huge song and dance about a thank-you card
>>206395816I don't know what I expected but that was certainly not it.
>>206395807I want to be that plushie.
>>206391445I believe this is stupid, Yoshika is a pencil bag, that's why it has a zipper in the dream.Therefore the whole theory collapses.
>>206396399god, egg is so cute
This is apparently a colored title page for this week's chapter
>>206396659Looks like the cover for Vol 3 or something.Pretty good.
>>206396741Not sure about that, the first volume had a completely original cover while the rest of the art that was used as promotional covers for CUNE magazine and the chapters, were added as omake.
>>206391445We got too far into the simulation, there's no coming back.
World you a egg?
>>206396659art sensei is real sexy ngl
what would your ideal GLT game play like?
what's SSR? and are they actually related at all i just picked up shimeji simulation cus it looked interesting and read a few chapters, but ill go back and read the others first if necessary
>>206397164I would BE an egg
>>206397223Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryouko aka Girls'Last Tour. They're tangentially related and you'll see how it you read both, which I, and I think everyone else here would recommend
>>206397223Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou aka girls last tour, it's the previous manga by the mangaka and it's a great read, characters from it show up in shimeji simulation
>>206397203You mean like pic related?
>>206397223just the japanese name for GLT, shoujo shuumatsu ryokoujust doing a catch-all for people who go by that
>>206397353yeah like, what would it be? exploration plus some lore/worldbuilding, seeing how long you can survive/how far you can get? do you have a "destination" in mind, etc
majime is dumb and smells like rotten eggs. ew
>>206391721I think it comes out every 27th, so sometime tomorrow
>>206399135But it's already the 27th...
I need more mamajime.
>>206399978I'd ditch my real mom and allow myself to be adopted by mama egg
The time has come. Here's Shimeji Simulation chapter 17.------------------A summer...of mysterious urge.
>>206400625And by 17, I mean 18. Goddammit.
>>206400625I love you
>>206399978madre de huevo (milf)
>>206400625Let's fucking go
>>206400651Alright“Let's get another good day of digging.”“Gotta change, gotta change ...”“Um... can we get some help here?”“Ma’am.”“This feels like deja-vu...”“We were cleaning up the inside of the container, but...”“It’s even messier now.”“Yeah.”
>>206400803“Our club always uses the art club’s prep room to change clothes, right?”“We were just about to do that.”“So I thought we should tidy up the container and turn this into our changing room.” “Ahh, that'd be nice.”“Alright, let’s change here right away!”“It’s still messy, though...”“Whoa.”“What are you doing?”“Another mess...”“Ow!”“Huh? Wha...”“Are you mad...? Sorry...”
>>206400876“What... is this?”“...A donut?”“Ah, I didn’t break it... Look.”staaaare“It’s fine even if you did, really.”“Huh?”“It’s mine, after all.”“These are works I’ve made since I was in college...”“but I don’t have space for them, so I’m keeping them here...”“These are important, then...” ---------------“Simple.”“...Twisting.”“This one’s... a coffee cup?”“Isn’t the handle too big...?”“A lot of these are donut-shaped.”“Right... Ring's the basic shape...”“and most of them are biscuit porcelain.”“Porcelain donuts...”“Abbreviated, ponuts.”
>>206400972“I’ll be digging now, so please continue the cleaning...”“Ah... yes.”(Changed)“She’s a total “hole-addict”, isn’t she?”“A dig-addict.”She might have a tendency to get too absorbed in things“I see.”“...Alcohol too...”“So this place’s got electricity.”---------------“It seems that some people”“have a predisposition to develop dependencies.”“...Who?”“Ah... the library girl.”“Once they’ve learned the experience of a certain pleasure...”“it might be the case that it’s easy for the habit to form.”“Well, I read books all the time too...”“Me too, Shimeji-chan’s the only one who can make me feel good now...”“You what?”
>>206401052“Still, these sure are a lot of donuts...”“Some aren't like donuts.”“Like this one.”“It’s like a vase.”“This one’s a cube.”“This too.”“If you ask me, they're all rings.”“Huh? Really...?”“What do you think makes a ring?”“...A hole.”“Ahhh.”
>>206401123“It seems that the ancient... hunter-gatherers were capable of just about anything.”“Hunting, making tools, cooking, everyone could do pretty much anything necessary for survival.”“...Speaking of which, the division of labor started to increase following the start of agriculture, and people started specializing in specific roles.”“Warriors, craftsmen, farmers, merchants, teachers, researchers, artists...”“From generalists to specialists... following this trend, humanity has since continued to strive for further specialization of abilities.” “...What are you talking about?”“Ohh, it’s all tidy now.”“Roomy.”“So, people who can do one specific thing extremely well...”
>>206401223“might be the next step in human evolution... I suppose.”“Do people evolve?”“Well... Personally, I don’t think we do, but some say otherwise.”“No...”“This is nowhere near enough.”
>>206401279“Girls, good work today.”“Oh?”“Yomikawa-san!”“Hello, it’s been a while.”“Um... who is she?”“This is Yomikawa-senpai, a third-year and a member of our club.”“Call me Yomi-senpai.”“So she’s in our club.”“Help with the cleaning too, then...”---------------“Ah! Incredible!”“This is the first time we’ve ever had the whole team together...!”“This calls for a celebration.”“There’s a bottle of wine here.”“Well then, let’s go whee whee with wine.”“Whee whee wine.”“No no...”Yaaaypooour“Senpai, don’t!”“It’s fine, I’m an adult.”“How many times have you repeated the year...?”
>>206401343“...So, what brought you here?”“I’m usually at the library after school, but...”“there’s a clear view of this place from the library’s window on the third floor,”“so I watch you sometimes.”“Then, seeing how awfully huge the hole’s getting, I got curious.”Oh, right,I’m a member too“Glad to have an extra pair of hands, though.”I can’t carry anything heavier than a book“Ah, I won’t be helping.”“I see...”---------------“Though... I don’t think we’ll be able to dig much more with just three people.”“Huh...? What do we do, then?”“Use heavy equipment... maybe?”“We’re going beyond club activity level here...”“I know someone who might be able to help.”She’s good with machines“You do?”“She’s an oddball that’s always in a lab coat, though...”“Lab coat...”
>>206401428I’m home“...”klak klak klak klak“Where’s my food?”“On the table.”“Simple meal today.”---------------“munch...”“Sis, can’t you make a hole-digging machine?”“Hole...? I’m busy right now...”“No... but, wait...”I wasn’t keen on asking Sis for help...but Ms. Mogawa said we absolutely needed it, so I tried asking her.“This might just be it.”“That so.”Ms. Mogawa's stubbornness, Sis’ serious eyes... for some reason, I found them scary.------------------------------Where will the hole-digging lead to, involving even Sis...?
>>206394094they're both always wet! ooohhhhh
>>206394094Tkmiz has said before that the fish are a metaphor for death. You finish the interpretation with that one.
>>206401502And done. I now return to slumber.
>>206401583Lesbian Bed Death?
>>206401591thank you for the dump
>>206401591thanks for the tl anon
>>206401591Thanks, anon. Until next time
>>206401591Good night anon! Thank you for your hard work!
>>206401591Oh, and by the way, do we have official colors on "god" here? I've been getting into drawfaggotry lately and I'm feeling like drawing her.
>>206401772figured a linen robe with blonde hair would suit dios en forma de lolidunno about the hat
>>206401502thank you and see you nex month anon!
>>206401279This page is really cool.
>>206400972First thing I thought about when I saw that cup was the thing in topology about there being no difference between a coffee mug and donut.
Gonna dump the TS slowly as I work like 2 chapters ago.
>>206401591Thanks mate.>>206401502I wouldn't even be surprised if next chapter is going to some ancient cave exploration found by digging a deeper hole.
>>206402651yeah i thought of the vsauce video>>206402860excellent
>>206402651Because the coffee mug has a donut-shaped handle? If so, that's pretty obvious.
>>206400876Egg was gonna strip right there in front of everyone, what a slut
>>206391445thinking about chii and yuu again bros
>>206392792We're closer to 2021 than 2019...Alternatively we're closer to 2040 than 2000.
>>206401502Thanks for the TL anon, didn't expect the book-chan to be a related to sis. Does she intentionally fluke to stay in school and get easy access to the school library?
>>206403221>>206402651>>206402925Let me give some more info about the math here and a basic theory about how it applies to Shimeji.What topologists mean here is that a coffee mug is homeomorphic to a donut. That means that there issome function, or a mapping, between points on the mug to the points on a donut. Further, thisfunction is invertible - that means that two points on the mug can't go to the same point on thedonut, for example, because then there would be no way to get back. Finally, it's continuous,which in topology, means that if you invert a whole region of close-together points on the donut,you get a region of close-together points on the mug. The function doesn't just randomlysend the points wherever it likes, it has to keep close points close together.I don't study analysis but I do study algebra. A related (metaphorically) concept is that of thedual. Duals in mathematics are two kinds of structures that are really the "same" thing from adifferent perspective. The reason they're interesting is that results, theorems, or proofs about oneof the structures automatically result in theorems about the other one "for free"; you just have toapply the dual function to the theorem.(1/2)
>>206403844I wish I was smart enough to learn more than just the basics of topology.
>>206403926One interesting example in computational geometry is that of the Voronoi diagram and Delaunaytriangulation, two constructions that are incredibly useful in 3D modelling, statistics,simulations, you name it. Someone figured out they were duals of each other, so instantlyall the decades of research about the Voronoi diagram now also applied to the Delaunaytriangulation, and vice-versa. Any code that people wrote to make Voronoi diagrams? Trivially,you could modify it to make Delaunay triangulations too. And so on. The reason why this is niceis because certain types of proofs and algorithms are much easier for humans to come up withon one of the duals but not the other, because it ends up being "simpler" in that one. But oncethat's done, they can use the dual to come up with the similar result about the other one.So what is the point of the Shimeji Simulation? Is the simulation supposed to mimic the real world?If there is a transformation from our world to the simulation and back, that's incredibly useful.You probably find it easier to think and reason about the simulation than our world. So if there isthis sort of homeomorphism between our world and the simulation, any lessons or thoughts or thingsyou understand about the simulation, you can apply the reverse homeomorphism (remember I said it'sinvertible!) and learn about our own world as well.
>>206403926>>206403997appreciate the write-up, i'll read it when im less potato-brained
>>206404432You got it. The short summary is: tkmiz might want you to think of the manga, and the simulation, as a microcosm or reflection of your own life and of our world. Can you apply the thoughts you have while reading the manga to similar situations in your own life?For example, from the beginning I had always connected with Shimeji. I don't have any egg friends around but I have tried going on walks more often (chapter 7). And I've spent some time listening to the rain during thunderstorms this summer.
>>206400803yay its here
>>206400876that was out of character for sumida to hit majime lmao
>>206404927we barely know her
>>206401502tkmiz always manages to end every chapter leaving you wanting more. whats gonaa happen
>list anon already got hitLet the man have his love!
>>206401591I'm a little late, but thank you once again tl-anon!Can't wait for next month.This was a fun chapter, we got to see all the members interacting. And a little bit of insight into Ms. Mogawa...
they do it for free
>>206401502What are the pills next to the ration?
Fucking assholes, why would you delete the best thing in these threads?>>206405705But Shimeji is already a girl, she doesn't need estrogen pills.
yuuri-anon, I love your list and your dedication to posting it, but seeing how quick it's getting removed now I'm worried that pretty soon the jannies are going to take you with it.
>>206405601They do kind of look like pills now that you mention it. When I first read it I thought they were crumbs. Like the sister ate one of the rations and the other is for Shijima. Also I want to get the sister's name at some point. If book girl (actually we got her name this chapter) knows the sister maybe when they meet again we'll get her name.
I love my wife Yuuri.With her love I am satisfied with my life.>>206405755Oh yeah it was them, I was blocked because a submission for my IP to get banned was placed by a janitor or something, according to 4chan rules.It doesn't matter, like my wife, I know how to adapt to hardships.
posting the same thing on every ssr/shimeji thread would have gone unnoticed by the janitors if it had been contained in a single post but with over 300 items listed it was like 7 posts by now, right?
>>206405601might be vitamins since its a simple meal
tkmiz is depressed again /tkmiz/bros. im sad
>>206405950wish we could help them
>>206405950Nah, it's okay bro. Dude's buddies with it. He's like that otter that eats watermelon and hates it but keeps on eating anyway.
I must continue my work.
>>206406362for great justice
>>206406362you could make it a gif
>>206406563Like a movie credits ending where the texts are moving up
>>206397164very cute egg. wish i could recognize the artist signature
>>206403926>>206403997Thanks for explaining that anon, that puts a lot of things into perspective.I could see the idea of Homeomorphism as an overarching theme for the manga, even if the SS world isn't a literal simulation. It's also pretty neat that Miss Mogawa always liked digging holes and her love for making donut shaped objects is homeomorphic for her love for digging holes, which explains this page >>206401279, as shimeji figures out that holes=donuts.
Guys, it only just occurred to me. Yomi means "reading"
>>206406362I could translate it into nip for added fun, and a reduced word count
>>206406828That's an idea, I do want to share it to a wider audience.I wonder what the Japanese would make of the list, I do remember that one time when some Japanese translated a Tkmiz thread.That's where the name Yuuri Gentleman came from.
>>206406891>I do remember that one time when some Japanese translated a Tkmiz thread.Is there an image available for that still? I never saw that.
>>206407021>the whole listsasuga nanashi-sama
>>206407021I was hoping it was more like a 2ch thread with translations and people there reacting to them. This is still cool though.
>>206406891Fun fact, I think the average item is 14 characters in japanese, including the number, hyphen and space.If you made a twitter, it'd take you only 30 something tweets to get to the current number of the list.Don't use that list though, I think it's MTL
>>206407321I do have a twitter.https://twitter.com/HusbandYuuriWhat does MTL mean?
>>206407385Machine translated.I'll send you a DM tomorrow if I don't forget.Nighty night anons.
>>206407510night. hope this thread is still up when i wake up
>>206407021I wanna make a site where I translate the Japanese comments on these translation websites into English so I can add another layer to the infinite loop. I wonder if one day they'll translate this post and then I can translate the responses to my own post.
Raw anon, you here? I've read (some of) the stuff you sent me and I dig it. How are we gonna work on it?
>>206391445I'm afraid Shimeji Simulation is gonna hurt as much as SSR did
>>206401279>sensei plans to turn the entire planet into a donut
>>206401343best girl gets a name!
>>206403997This just sounds like a very roundabout way of stating that the series is highly metaphorical (things in the story have corresponding representation in something real).
>>206405855Book girl is just gonna call her "senpai", calling it now.
>>206401913I think I've seen her with silver/grey hair somewhere, but eh, whatever, here it is.
>>206405950>>206405967Just quoting some great music, nothing to worry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRmDOUJNTxk
>>206405967I wonder if tkmiz begins to hate drawing, I used to like doing some programming and I'm quite good at it, now it's nothing but anger that occurs when I do it.
Her meal pics don’t look as good as they once did
>>206404696I already had SSR on the top of my reading queue, and I already knew tkmiz had excellent taste (Eizouken fanart), but mathematical duals?! In my manga? GOATed.>>206409883programmers unite. They pay me to write compilers for some reason.
reminder tkmiz lives locked in a dungeon
>>206410530Christ, if my workstation looked like that id be depressed too
>>206401502as always thanks a lot!And now, the tkmiz chapter of the second SSR anthology.
I want tkmiz imouto.
>>206410703>>206410725Yes. I have been waiting for this since it came out and I missed it. Yes.
>>206401591Thank you TL-kun, this was a very interesting chapter, and once again it has very interesting panelling.>>206402651Nice, same. I remembered the Vsauce video.>>206406712In order for the thing Mogawa is digging to become a proper hole in the topological sense, she would need to go all the way through the Earth, that way she would make the Earth a donut.>>206409619That's really nice anon! We need more art of God.>>206410703Oh man, this thread just keeps on giving, thanks anon!
>>206410830is Chii's second bubble when she's casting spells supposed to be empty
>>206410804>it’s all another simulationThis actually somewhat reminds me of 200% Mixed Juice, where the main character from previous games and another who are both immortals live through simulations of worlds full of their friends and homes billions of years after their friends died
>>206410867Seems like I missed that one. I'll fix it and then continue dumping the rest
>>206410900FixedNext Page: >>206410873
>>206410873I messed up (you)-ing the pages in the right order in the previous post, sorry
>>206410994My vr headset is coming in about 4 days, I wonder how it will be
>>206410994And that's it. I talked to the guys who worked on the first Anthology and they said that they still want to work on the second one. I personally probably won't do more then this one chapter, because I only have one translator to help me out and he currently works on another project I wanted to tackle since along time. I'll upload it to MD later on today.I'm sorry tkmizfriends
>>206410530>no windowswhy is he living like a neet
>>206410792Its almost like mogawa is in a trance. She doesnt even know why she's digging. Her only excuse as far as i know is that she is meant to dig . That doesnt really give an answer
>>206405967My entire world wouldnt be the same without him and im serious
Steak and eggs and hashbrowns
>>206410830El dragon de fuego...
New SS always brights up my day. Thank you tkmiz and tl-kun.>>206400803Great panelling on the bottom left.>>206400876I love how forward Majime is, she really is the Jin to Shijima's Jang. Also Sumida doesn't fuck around.>>206401052I wonder if tkmiz will explore addiction/dependency more with SS. If we still go with the simulation theory, then perhaps Mogawa being addicted to digging could just be a manifestation of her being programmed for a singular purpose.>Me too, Shimeji-chan’s the only one who can make me feel good now...Fucking nice.>>206401123I wonder if tkmiz just recently read something about topology, found it interesting and felt like putting it in for fun.>>206401223>>206401223The thing about specialization is true, I wonder where tkmiz is going with it, Perhaps the head objects are just the next step of hyper specialization.I also thing that Mogawa is not specialized to be a teacher, but rather to dig holes. I wonder what Shijima and Majime's speicializations are, if they have any (or will develop any)>>206401279I fucking love this panelling, tkmiz really is making the most of the medium. I'm starting to think that her ultimate goal might be to make a through-hole and really turn the Earth into a donut. That might reach some limit of the simulation.>>206401343Cute name for a cute girl alcoholic>>206401428It's nice to see this tie together with the foreshadowing we got of her looking out of the window in early chapters.I wonder if perhaps Mogawa and Sis went to the same college. It'd be nice to see everyone, even sis, together. I'm sure they could get up to some real shenanigans.>>206401502SSR rations, perhaps the dream drugs? I hope we'll soon see some progress on Sis' research and hopefully a confrontation with god loli. I also wonder if Sis' finishes her project, will she be willing to help with hole-digging then?
>>206392563DIOS EN FORMA DE LOLI
>>206411519He is in the simulation.
>>206405601These ones. Next chapter will be dream chapter.
>>206405753A girl with a cute little mushroom.
>>206415364>>206401502And double the dose than before, what is she doing with shimeji?
Oh man, I come back to this manga after a long time and there's apparently a ton of topology talk. I'll have to catch up soon. How're you doing, /a/nons?
>>206417071Creating a new God requires drastic measures
>>206411070what about the sfx
>>206417422what the fuck IS topology
>>206391445Wind gathers us again huh. i need to catch up on the thread and the chapter. i'm really worried about tkmiz' mental state. i have been checking her twitter since earlier.>>206401591Thank you TLAnon!
>>206417672I mainly translated it myself and had my translator mainly do quality control. I'm not really good with handwritten stuff, most of the time SFX are self explenatory anyways and I'm using Gimp to typesett, so they usually don't look that nice. It would also look pretty dumb if some pages had them and some don't, which is why I left them out for now. I'll probably add them later before uploadingit. But for now I did what I wanted and that is giving you guys the opportunity to read the chapter.
>>206417896Structure, form, shape. Giving names to features.Here's a vsauce video that's very relevant to this chapter. In particular, this page >>206400972https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egEraZP9yXQ
>>206418691outta here with your basedsauce
>>206418769what the fuck. i typed basedsauce
>>206418795 s o y s a u c e is changed to basedsauce, did i miss some update to the site or board?
>>206418769>>206418833Soi got filtered years ago
>>206418878To be fair i would have missed it too if it wasn't for confused /v/ermin.
>>206418201Redrawing all the sfx is a waste of time and takes away from the art imo. But just putting it a small "sfx: pop pop pop" the margins is nice. Like the official yotsuba scans>>206418833newfag alert! newfag alert! beep beep beep beep! and cringe, there's precisely nothing wrong with vsauce. stop judging people based on your shit /v/ meme and fuck back to your containment hole.
Onions is onions though. So why is basedsauce basedsauce? Or am I being fucked with here by anon.
>>206418878>>206418908I've been lurking since 2011, and only post in tkmiz threads, i don't know how i would have noticed it as meta threads are always nuked, and i'm not familiar with the /v/ buzzwords.
>>206418991That place's a shithole anyways, /tkmiz/ is the ivory tower of this site.>>206403926>>206403997Thank you Anon, i really didn't fully get the chapter until this.
>>206418991>and only post in tkmiz threadswho knew these threads were infiltrated by fucking outsiders from other sites
>>206419236Anon, all of /a/ is infiltrated, if he's posting without fucking buzzwords or screaming like a child about DBS powerlevel, I'd rather have him.
>>206419236You have to use twitter if you want to follow artists and h-artists. Your take looks far more along the lines of someone who fell for the oldfag meme so they fit.
>>206391445I don't get it
>>206419332>Bedford is in twitter>Half of r/a/dio is in twitter>A shit tom of anons I know from years ago are on twitterAt this point, twitter is almost secondary /a/ if you follow the same people.It even has better discussions on the average thread (if we take imto account half the board are crossboarding shonenfuckers.
>>206418949this desu senpai baka
>>206418949Supposedly onions beans have feminizing properties and onions have the opposite effect. I'm not sure why s o y alone becomes onions but in a word it becomes based but that's what our benevolent mods decided when this was a hot meme a few years ago. I think we need new word filters, like Majime --> egg.
>>206419463Every manga artist is on twitter and it sucks. Personal sites and fc2 blogs were so much easier to filter out food pics and stills from gundam and only see the art of lolis and shotas getting ripped apart. Plus there was more than a day of scrollback, twitter is fucking garbage design wise. Artists keep getting auto-banned too so it sucks having to refollow all the good ones. Thankfully all the people who I remember from before don’t use it on account of being dead, or worse using Lat's garbage 8-clone, or being to busy stalking/being a certain former 4chan admin turned weab Japanese nationalist author.
>>206419768still waiting for "based" and "cringe" to be filtered into "epic win" and "epic fail"
>>206410792>In order for the thing Mogawa is digging to become a proper hole in the topological sense, she would need to go all the way through the Earth, that way she would make the Earth a donut.I mean, if she doesn't stop that's what she's gonna end up at the other side of the world someday
Anyone has any idea what her last tweet means?"ほっけを鞄に入れて長距離移動する"Website translators are failing me.
As the first anon that brought up topology I want to say that I've never watched a vsauce video and don't even really know who that is, though I've heard the name.
>>206420420"I'm gonna take a bag, put a mackerel in it, and migrate."
>>206420524Love you Anon.
>>206419332What does twitter have to do with anything. I wouldn't even consider twitter to be its own community.
Because there seems to be some disagreement on the quality of vsauce videos I won't comment on my opinion of them I'd like to point out that numberphile also has a few videos on the subject of topology.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8Rxep2Mkp8https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feUPkMGACtkThey may not be quite as indepth as the vsauce videos but they can still be informative.
Wishing the thread would heal up when I wake up.
>>206421547what is this?
>>206421617>>206421644Just a fan comic someone did
What happened with the TS? He said he was going to post the pages as he does them but I didn't realize it would take this long between pages.
>>206421760He may have gone to sleep
>>206421760usually typesetting comes out roughly a day after translation so yeah, I'd assume he's sleeping atm.
>>206419236I’m similar to >>206418991Tkmiz threads have a certain allure to them and they are the only threads I’d happily post in. Or maybe I’m too scared of posting anywhere else.
>>206422435/tkmiz/ is the only place I post now a days as well, but that's mainly because everything else is so shit now. Threads like this that are reserved for once a week or once a month tend to be way better.
>>206422435>>206422725there's a few other threads that I still post in and a couple other imageboards, but like /tkmiz/ they're mostly infrequent and less tense than the rest of 4chan. It's a frustrating catch-22 where I like the slower threads/boards because they're typically laid-back and the posters don't seem to have their heads up their asses, but then their discussions are that much slower as well.
>>206423114/a/ seems to hit that golden spot where you have enough people to sustain a lot of topics, while not being fast enough that a threads dies after 5 munutes without a reply (and since the fucking spamming retards are in their shonen threads, they don't make threads fast enough.The fishing anime threads are nice, scanlator threads are actually useful, and you get nice threads here and there.
>>206424094We are lucky this week that Jump is on break. A huge benefit for the lesser known shows to have threads. We had a nice stream of tkmiz threads lately too.
She'd make a great middle manager with her penchant for sitting around and giving lectures while people around her work.
Me be slow, me needed sleep.Page 3.
>>206425983It be okay, you take your time. Sleep be important.
>>206425983I love that font anon, nice work.
Onee looks cute sitting like this.
Typeset first page. One of my buds helped with the redraw.
>>206427256What a coincidence, I've got some mysterious urges, too.
>>206427256Wouldn't urges sound more natural than urge?
>>206427433I'm just typing what TL-kun said. I can switch it to that though.
>>206427466The literal TL is"Being (spured on/urged) by something.... that kind of summer"
>>206427693The summer of our discontent.
Please, for the love of god, do not google "ponut".
>>206427837You can't tell me what to do
>>206427861My contrarianism betrays me yet again.
>>206427837I didn't realize that when Shijima abbreviated the fish name in an earlier chapter that it would become a running gag but I think it's pretty funny.
>>206427837>>206427861>>206427905Ah, I'm so curious now. Can you give me a hint?
>>206427837Why must you have said that, you just made me curious and now you have hurt me
>>206427996Anon tried to warn us.
>>206427837joke's on you, i already know what that is unfortunately
I've been updating the media list because I don't know if the anon that made it is still around. I think I have most of them since the last version I could find on pastebin plus I added some other references that weren't there, but I'm sure there's plenty of missing references so say so if I missed something.Also trying to update the dead mega links with the filenames from the tkmiz pictures folder, since I wanna make a monthly torrent alternative for people to download the folder which would include the media list in there.Anyways here's the list:https://pastebin.com/4ZJ68qwW
>>206427837>ponutgodamnit, godamnit! I really thought "it couldn't be that bad" but it was.
Holes and alcohol.Alco-hole.
>>206427837I should have listened
>>206408123Please do my man, I've been shittily pasting the comments into google translate for a year now.
We're more than halfway there.
>>206427837I hurt myself today
>>206427837I have the strength of will to listen to your words, anon.
>>206429777tkmiz did the endcard for an episode of Koisuru Asteroid. That probably counts for the list.
I want my first to be with tkmiz
>>206431270Your first what anon?
>>206431314his first to be
>>206431270Will you top or bottom?
>>206429777I'm still here. I just usually wait until someone mentions either the media list or not having anything to do before I post. But you can take over if you want.
>>206431314His first double suicide.
>>206429777Spectral Wizard manga
>>206431710Implying it will be just double if tkmiz is involved. Half this thread will go.
Next page is a doozy.
>>206432574this thread has the strongest undercurrent of sheer mental illness that I have ever seen
>>206432680Katawa shoujo general on /vg/, that was a thing to behold.
>>206432635Isn't it "Yomikawa" not "Yomiwaka"?
>>206432680it's how we get by
>>206432680I agree, but it’s touching. Last thread was practically a suicide hotline. What’s more endearing and bittersweet than Anons with no will to live convincing each other to go on?>>206432844I have never been there regrettably. Was it like here?
>>206433611i wish zetsubou posters would actually do it so they stop with the stupid suicideposting.
>>206433672That's rude anon.
>>206433672Zetsubouposting > SuicidepostingI think it should stick to that.>>206433611Not that anon, but I only remember the fun stuff that appeared like the OC's and that one time the artist rtil showed up and drew random stuff for us. Still, you had to crawl through the usual shit of a /vg/ thread.
>>206434046bookgirl is a lazy piece of shit
>>206433672i thought the whole point was to get along with zetsubou
>>206432680Welcome to /tkmiz/, enjoy your stay!
>>206433740they are the reason we can't have regular threads, they turn every thread into a suicide hotline and that's bs.Burdening others with your insufficiency and desire to die is the epitome of scum behavior.Get your shit together or end it, faggot, do a flip while you are at it.
>>206434146At least tkmiz is doing something with his existential dread that is productive and meaningful all the while wanting to die.
>>206434235People suicidepost a lot less now than they used to, quit whining.
>>206434235personally I feel indifferent to suicideposting but I almost cut myself on your edge there
>>206432680I was only in special needs classes from 4th grade to 9th grade, it can't be that bad. They said it was only ADD.
>>206433672The whole vibe i get from zetsubo posting is 'boohoo im depressed you guys. Poor me'. Sorry to say but literally no one cares about how youre feeling. We all have issues itt i believe, but you dont see us shoving it sown everyone's throat. Its fine to let out steam but jesus chill.
>>206434235>the epitome of scum behavior.Not really. But yeah they are annoying attention whoring fags.
>>206434235No one burdens you, just don’t answer them or answer other posts if you are not interested or are a selfish edgelord. It’s the opposite of a burden to be given the chance to help someone in need, its part of what tkmiz does for us after all.
I heard we have a special theme for this chapter. Did I, perchance, hear the word donuts?
>>206434723There is a reason people see this tkmiz following as a suicide cult.
>>206434768Thank you TS-kun!
>>206434753no it was ponuts
>>206434784Nobody who has two working brain cells thinks that.
>>206434716>>206434689What exactly is attention whoring? Opening up and talking to people in similar situations? Oh the horror. You are in a site where you wade through shitposts 24/7 and you get triggered by people being nice to each other. >>206434784Is it not the exact opposite?
>>206434235schizo posting is /tkmiz/ culture
>>206434768Thank you TSAnon! It looks really nice
>>206410530i dream of having an entirely concrete-walled house
>>206434944>What exactly is attention whoring?Walking into a random thread and going "woe is me guise I'm sad blah blah">You are in a site where you wade through shitposts 24/7you are literally just another shitposter, imbecile
>>206435244It’s not a random thread. Also are you allergic to empathy and basic decency? I always wonder what kind of person hides behind attitudes like this.
>>206435457Anon is probably hurting inside too, that's the only type of person who bothers making posts like that.
>>206435244I think you're in the wrong thread buddy
Stop feeding it.
>>206421132>6 hours ago>no repliesg-guys?
>>206435457>are you allergic to empathy and basic decency?Right after reminding him what site we're all on, you just went ahead and forgot it yourself. There always will be a sizeable portion of anons who physically don't comprehend this type of emotions.
>>206435457There is nothing about these thread that makes them your safespace>Also are you allergic to empathy and basic decency? You sure are not feeling empathetic at my pain of having to read this shit.
>>206435457Empathy and decency towards people who coward in their shell of faults and insufficiency only go so far when you deal with them long enough.>>206435556Not that anon but all i can say is that i used to be hurting too, a zetsubou poster in the GLT threads.It only made me get fed up with my self, fail a couple suicide attempts and get my shit together.Now i am one with hopelessness through a Buddhist lens.
>>206395816>dec21>january5 reply after being told many times "pls respond to filthy gaijin"sad
god stop it already.
>>206435793It is not my safespace, but I found it adequate to point out how garbage you are at being a half-decent person so that other people don’t feel your claims have no opposition.>>206435815People tend to improve when they do that actually. It is removing a shell, not building one. A shell is to be superficial as fuck to hide what you call a weakness. Those zetsubouposters are less weak than the Anon I answered above as they go through shit without succumbing to being a waste of oxygen.
We probably ought to lay off the tkmiz threads for a while after this one.
>>206436356i only swing by here every 27th. just how many tkmiz threads are there usually in-between then?
>>206435771Newfags think that anonymity means they can and thus should be utter shitheads devoid of all empathy for fellow anons, when people stuck here long enough realize it should instead mean the exact opposite, a much more intimate closeness and understanding, and greater solidarity when you don't have anything like social stigma or feelings of embarrassment inhibiting you.
>>206436356gonna be a month till the next chapter right? so the problem will probably solve itself
>>206436408This month i saw 2, they were decent.
>>206436356>>206436408There's usually just one or two proper ones at most. tkmiz will inevitably always be about topics such as these, the works and the artist's personality and conduct guarantee they are always relevant, if you can't handle it then you should just leave
>>206436250Do you lack self awareness at all? You are the garbage you are a sore stop posting. >so that other people don’t feel your claims have no opposition.You agreed with all my points lmao. Your only "opposition" is calling me an indecent human being (whatever that is). But I am decent anon I feel your pain. Consider creating a discord server and crying there among other faggots like you.
>>206436408One or two or sometimes three, the people who make them aren't people who frequent the monthly threads though but I know we all post in them anyway
>>206436356that's a shame but understandable.
>>2064364085-20. Depends, a lot of them are new posters who just watched the series making threads and leaving.
simply do not engage with it
>>206436696I want to engage with Shimeji's shimejis.
>>206436696I’m sorry for that. It just pissed me off because I liked a couple Anons from the last thread who weren’t okay, but I helped derail it.
>>206436640And now you outright give up and choose to pretend I was just baiting a response this whole time and not calling you out on your attention whoring behavior. I'm okay with that, just understand what you are, a fucking cancer.>206436696 Close your eyes we are not faggots ruining these thread we are not we are not stop thinking
>>206436824I don't remember the last thread getting derailed, it seemed to be mostly perfectly on topic discussion of philosophy and Bush era conspiracies.
>>206436435>Newfags think that anonymity means they can and thus should be utter shitheads devoid of all empathyAnonymity also naturally attracts people who genuinely ARE devoid of empathy, for better or worse. Take it from me, i'm like that too, but i barely display it in motion.While we're at it, can't help but share an observation. A lot of vent threads have a leitmotif of guilt, fear of letting people down, guild of letting people down, etc. In a way, being "decent human" is a toll that's sinking a sizeable amount of depressed people. Maybe they would be happier letting that mindset go altogether, if the push is about to come to shove.
/tkmiz/ is a train stop on the Zetsubou Express. We are only here every other day of the month.
>>206436910I meant derailing this one by antagonizing that one Anon and making it speak more. Just bad wording on my part.
>>206436356this isn't the first time someone's been uncomfy and unfortunately it probably won't be the last. It's a symptom of the modern internet and our space in it. It's part of the reason why these threads try to stay around the 27th and not appear too frequently otherwise.Personally, I'm not too crazy about the suicide posting either. The threads are better when they focus on zetsubou and living in it. But I think that comes to us all as a natural progression and so these anons are people who aren't quite there yet. It's better for us to be an example and show how life is still livable and the ways you can enjoy it.
/tkmiz/ is /a/'s Q.
>>206437104This is a good post
>>206436923Its the fear of not being a productive or accomplished human rather than the fear of not being a decent one (from a moral perspective). Those Anons are typically good in that regard already, though they do fear being a burden on others or hurting them by manifesting pain. And sometimes they also just have a mental illness that causes depression aside from the psychological issues that they might also have.
>>206411070Yuuri always has the most profound thoughts.Apart from being a really gallant and brave knight, she's also a philosopher.I'm really glad I fell in love with her.
>>206436923Totally agree with this anon's observation.
>>206437184Tkmiz knows a lot, his works are window to that knowledge.
>>206434768Thanks for the TS>>206431575My intention wasn't to take anything over, I just figured maybe you weren't around since I hadn't seen it in a while, I take it you haven't been keeping it up to date then?>>206437104Last thread had a lot more suicideposting than this one and considering the artist, I don't see how anyone can be surprised about it. Regardless I think most people here are usually good at either ignoring it or engaging with it in a good manner, tkmiz's work is ultimately focused on keeping your life and suicidal anons probably understand this more than anyone else.
tkmiz imageboard Yocchan when?
>suicidal What does that even mean? If you wanted to yawn, you'd yawn. If you wanted to die, you'd kill yourself, that's it, it's not hard at all. The term is only applicable to people moments before they die, stop using it and spitting on the memory of actual suicide victims.
>>206437983I can be hungry and not eat, I can be tired and not sleep.Not every urge has to be met immediately, or even at all
>>206436356Right. After they realize tkmiz threads arent twitter blogs talking about how shit their life is
>>206437983Anon has just solved world hunger.
>>206438045It isn't an urge then, just some whimsical wish. So call it kinda-somewhat-suicidal or something
>>206405967Maybe he saw this thread and went, goddamn those westerners are pirating my manga again.
>>206438270Hey, I bought SSR and I'll buy SS too if it gets an English release.
>>206438270Yeah is what were doing here even legal
>>206437983Yeah, I agree. It's just the modern world and it's romantization of mental illness unfortunately.
>>206437983>suicidal, What does that even mean?A person who considers suicide.>people moments before they dieSuiciding>actual suicide victimsSuicided. Or suicidead.
>>206437608That wasn't "take over" in an accusatory sense or anything. I just meant that I don't have a special attachment to it or anything, so if someone else felt strongly that they wanted to maintain it, that would be fine. I've been keeping it up-to-date with newer art; people are usually pretty quick to point out when a new piece of artwork is from something. But there's still tons of old art that is probably from media that I just don't know.https://pastebin.com/RcK067EHI think >>206431780 is the only piece of media someone has brought up recently that I haven't had a chance to add, just because the mega died. I haven't had time to go through and update the image links yet. I noticed that the download links for pcloud expire, so I wasn't sure how to approach that.
>>206438433This will be the line for the ages, tkmiz threads i mea.
>>206437983.These threads are so fucking bad now holy shit. Actual hypersensitive attention whores competing in who's more mentally ill. I feel like I'm on twitter
>>206438433Mental illness isn’t romantized. The field of psychology and psychiatry just advanced further. And places like Japan don’t have it and they have insane suicide rates. Mental illness not being taboo helps people, it’s not like it’s a fad anyways. You get diagnosed by an actual doctor. This sort of thinking is more harmful than supposed romantization.>>206438160Well you through a phase of suicide ideation if you’re doing bad enough and it makes you vulnerable to actually attempt it when you sink even lower.>>206437983Those suicide victims may have been saved if they got to zetsuboupost and also get therapy. Also its been proven you hover around the idea for a while, its not like you randomly decide life is not worth living and promptly succeed. There’s a leap between deciding your life isn’t worth living and feeling worse enough to carry it out. Its not an easy affair.
>>206438622The previous thread was one of the best we’ve had, probably because you were not in it.
>>206438881And you could indulge in your faggotry as much as you wanted.
>people who hate suicideposters because they derail the threads are now derailing the threads more then they ever didIs it just an elaborate troll?
>>206438958It is a necessary evil so they don't feel welcome here
Can't we all just get along with zetsubou
>>206438958Elaborate? That is pretty direct and classic. A real time honored tradition of trolling by projection.
>>206438958They got triggered over this little joke >>206431710someone made and have been crying more over that than the people we often get who want to die. And I say “they“ generously, it’s probably the same /pol/faggot who shits up the threads about fish genders sometimes, but I am not optimistic enough to believe there is only one subhuman.
>>206438815>Mental illness isn’t romantized.But it is. Though it's a complex issue you can't really grasp in a thread on a mongolian carpeting forum so whatever to each their own.
>>206439125Actually, it was this post:>>206433611As i was the one who posted the reply to that post, it all went down from there.
>>206439226I agree with you, the romanticization of mental illnesses such as depression and suicide reminds me of how people romanticize nihilism.People embrace nihilism as it frees them from any sort of responsibility from their lives, nothing matters, life is a shit, i wish i didn't exist and so on.
>>206439226>its not possible to have a complex discussion because of the site formatWhat are you even talking about you can have any kind of discussion in any kind of space. If two individuals here had the capacity to have an in depth conversation there's nothing stopping them.
>>206439226Regardless of if it exists or not, it does not hurt anyone and actually helps, there’s just this stigma that people jump on the bandwagon for attention and it’s retarded on many levels, first because the attention is just empty words or evasion of the topic so it is not comfortable to bring it up, second because if you do have a mental illness you get diagnosed by a psychiatrist who is a doctor. The attention seeking stigma is just a toxic brainlet take that hurts more than some random and wrong stereotypes that appear sometimes in media. Those are annoying but not thst harmful in comparison. Plus mental illness exists regardless, its not like it spreads because you bring attention to it. If you don’t acknowledge it you just get a high hikki rate and high suicide rate which is obviously worse.
>>206439459Nihilism isn’t even what people think it is. It is actually uplifting, life has no meaning but you get to give meaning to it yourself. The nihilism = depressed emo type is a misinterpretation and an incorrect stereotype spread by the media. Nihilism as a philosophy isn’t depressing, especially if you don’t have faith to begin with.
>>206439528Why post here about your problems when you could be talking to a professional, a family member or a friend?Got not none? Get at it, if you truly had a problem you wouldn't be wasting your time pitying yourself for some attention on the internet.
>>206439667Exactly, though i think it is a developmental stage for further enlightenment.
>>206439697It can be frighting for some people to do it in person or with someone they know, so the anonymity helps them get it out since it can't be tied back to them.
>>206439697To elaborate further more, no one can help you but yourself, a professional will guide sort out your problems and tackle them one by one, but it is the individual who has to deal with the.This is why i'm against burdening people with your problems when you avoid dealing with them, such as the suicidal zetsubouposters.
>>206438526My idea was to add the filenames as sources for most of the older stuff and archive anything new that comes from tkmiz's twitter, I'll keep looking for the sources that I can find in the pics folder and maybe post it later.>>206438958Just don't reply, a lot of them just want replies because they think it's reddit karma, without realizing that kind of behavior kills any good discussion and derails it into what stupid shit can you say to get people's attention.>>206439526There's even an example in this thread >>206403926>>206403997
>>206439824I have dealt with enough depressed people to know that venting, sharing your pain through the internet does not help, but worsens as you push people away from you as you never get better, and continue to talk nothing but depression related topics focusing often on the one with the problem.Are you afraid of people? Find a professional, and consider behavioral therapy.
>>206439697We are basically friends Anon, and some people have trouble opening up and start here through the anonimity and get advice or comfort so they can go on with those things you mentioned. I haven’t vented here like that I think, I just like those people knowing they can bring it up. I usually try to help like last thread. It’s thanks to people like you that tkmiz is not okay. There’s just a terrible misunderstanding when it comes to these topics, like what I explained here. >>206439528On top of that, for example I actually self diagnosed myself at 15-16 after watching Eva, before that my life was absolute hell and it didn’t cross my mind that I could ask for help or that mental illnesses could be there at all. So I did get help through what you’d call attention seeking to my family, got to talk to a psychiatrist eventually and I was obviously grossly wrong in my self diagnosed but that proved to be the pathway of finding out what kind of shit I actually did have and prevented me from offing myself early (or more likely get sent to a psych ward after reaching a critical point). Not many people fake things for attention because the type of attention you get sucks. In fact I’d say the vast majority of people that “attention seek” have a legitimate problem (though not always an illness). Otherwise you would just farm (You)s being an asshole like that Anon here, way more comfy for such people.
>>206440306>We are basically friends AnonHuevo why are you on /a/?
>>206440127That’s honestly a retarded post Anon. I have helped myself and others through this sort of shit. Argue this thread is not the venue for that and you have a defensible argument, but this idea is absolutely stupid, especially since talking to other people about your issues and getting help are not mutually exclusive but the opposite. And people tend to start like this before they manage to find professional help. Also an obsession with behavioral is literally a byproduct of the American Education meme. People react differently to different branches and some help certain illnesses more than others.
>>206440121>Avoid discussion about problems concerning the community that frequent these threads.You sound like the sort of people who will cover their ears and start chanting so they don't listen what they don't want to hear.As i oppose the depressed posters i offer ideas that actually help, like in this post:>>206439872A bit of insight though personal on venting:>>206440127I used to be in the position of those posters:>>206435815And man, venting, burdening others with your problems and staying in that depression hole will only isolate you more.So, yo keep the tkmiz archive or the tkmiz pastebin and shut up.
>>206440306>So I did get help through what you’d call attention seeking to my family, got to talk to a psychiatristHeh, who would have thought, talking to your family instead to a stranger on the net actually works.
>>206440515>And man, venting, burdening others with your problems and staying in that depression hole will only isolate you more.Did you literally just say talking to others will isolate you more? On how many layers of mental gymnastics are you operating here? By the way no worthwhile person considers someone talking about personal issues to be a burden. Since you say you speak through personal experience of dealing with depressed people, I can safely say you are not a person that’s nice to be around with. You were the burden all along. Its even telling since there were 0 suicideposts and yet here we are with your triggered ass.
I want Egg and Shimeji to do this.
>>206440507>People react differently to different branches and some help certain illnesses more than others.This is why you talk to close social circle if there is any or directly to someone who will actually help you, venting is not the same as talking your problems to someone, when that person is someone who cares about you or knows professionally how to deal with those problems and can provide assistance.Usually some counseling will work just fine, if not, some antidepressants help if it's for a short period of time, behavioral therapy helps too if you are not completely socially inept to practice what you already know but never get to practice due to being antisocial.
>>206440592I only did that after talking online. They are not mutually exclusive and in fact many people like me start online since its way easier and from there you move on to real life stuff, and even then support from online friends has been as valuable as professional help, couldn’t have had one without the other. It’s a hard truth to swallow in this decadent society of false dichotomy and misinformation, but different types of support always go hand in hand and it doesn’t matter where it comes from as long as it pushes you on a path of improvement. Having good friends of any kind helps you go forward in treatment.
>>206440969I like the part where that anon didn't even mention venting once yet your still stuck on it.
>>206440963Go away tingle-anon
>>206440787Don't you get tired when people come to you with the same set of conversations, messages or memes? People do, and when you as a person only offer to others your mentally ill, depressed being to them for interaction, will eventually cause for them to avoid you and move on with their lives.Sure, some people will stay but those are like the truest friends that are hard to find.
>>206440981Because it is hot.
>>206441099someone told him to go away in an earlier thread and I haven't seen him since then. do you think he's still here?
>>206440963cut my life into pieces
Anyone did the typeset for this new chapter? I'm a little autistic so I don't like reading the translation without being in the bubbles
>>206440507>especially since talking to other people about your issuesCommonly know as venting.>>206441084
>>206441292Discussing your issues does not automatically equal venting, dude.
>>206440969I cared about those Anons and had good advice that worked. Other Anons were helping equally well. People don’t just randomly decide to go get therapy when they’re isolated, support from people that cares about them is invaluable in getting there. Also your views on mental illnesses are pretty rudimentary, a psychologist helps (not all counselors are even psychologists in the US I think, haha) but if you have an actual mental illness you usually need meds and there’s many types, you don’t just get antidepressants for being depressed since the depression can be a byproduct of a different illness, and with meds you still go to a psychologist in parallel for optimal treatment.>>206441204You may just be a bad friend Anon. Not all people are as lacking in empathy as you. I’m glad you don’t sugarcoat it though. That’s a good boon of anonimity, people reveal their nature more easily.
>>206441372Venting: the sharing of a strong emotionWhat is the discussion of issues but the sharing of a particular set of emotions, and discussing them?>>206441391Due to the particulars of this medium i could argue that i'm actually one of the people who cares about people, but if they fail to set themselves right, i have to be real and a bit harsh to them as to beat some sense into them. But unless you actually knew me, you can say that's just what i want people to think of me.So, whatever man.
>>206441668You're actually retarded>>206440969>venting is not the same as talking your problems to someoneYou literally said yourself discussing your problems isn't the same as venting yet now you say it isfucking buffoonabsolute moron
>>206441668i'm not going to go in circles anymore and the thread has suffered enough of these posts, you just have an extremely harmful misunderstanding of how these things even work to the point where you think people seeking support means they won't get help and that they're an annoyance. i probably don't have to spell out how fucked that is, but oh well, it's not like i can do anything more than this and the rest of the thread didn't deserve to suffer through this argument so i'm dropping it. Just please try not to be harmful to other Anons, just as a personal request.
>>206441580>https://mangadex.org/chapter/973663I was about to ask if the quality of the scans was always this bad, but it turn out I had the data saver option ON for some reason.
>>206441845You got me there, you win.
I wanted to ask to any anon that knows nipspeak, is the author of this book ロラン ノヾルト? After some googling of anyone Roland that had a book on narrative analysis all I could find is Roland Barthes who wrote An Introduction to the Structural Analysis of Narrative, but I think I'm totally wrong since I had to manually type the author's name in Katagana and the name of the book doesn't quite match up to the one in the picture.
>>206442716The way you typed the name in katakana in the post is wrong. It's "ro-ra-n ba-ru-to", which might line up with Roland Barthes.
>>206442716>>206442931The Japanese Wikipedia page uses the spelling in your image too.https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%AD%E3%83%A9%E3%83%B3%E3%83%BB%E3%83%90%E3%83%AB%E3%83%88
>>206432680You betcha, it's what makes the thread colorful making a single tkmiz thread represent one's life, started happy (sometimes) and ends with suicide methods.
>>206442931>>206442971thanks! I found the title of the book in that wikipedia article so I'm pretty sure it's the right book now.
>>206444577https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/81643957Shows up on saucenao but not ascii2d for some reason.
>>206444670Probably speaks badly of me but that was amazing, thank you
>>206444777>>206444670>>206441213>>206440963Fucking genuine degenerates
I think I'm just accepting the fact that I am retarded. Even after reading other anon's posts this chapter makes no sense.
>>206445280there wasn't much happening beyond the obvious other than Mogawa sensei's sculptures and that possibly Yomi senpai might know Shimejii's sister. The main thing to note there is that every single sculpture has a single hole in it making them all homeomorphic objects. The definition of what that means has been gone over and linked to a few times already in the thread.What this means for further plot purposes is unknown but it seems like Mogawa sensei is really going at it with the current hole they're digging.
Does anyone have a mirror of the mega?>>206445280See >>206404696>You got it. The short summary is: tkmiz might want you to think of the manga, and the simulation, as a microcosm or reflection of your own life and of our world. Can you apply the thoughts you have while reading the manga to similar situations in your own life?>>206441580Thank you Tsanon>>206436910Recently I thought it was getting a tiny bit better but the zetsubouposters are back at full force. I think it speaks to tkmiz's audience that they (including me) don't really feel like they have anywhere else to post this stuff.>>206417896Topology is the study of mathematics where all structures that can be "continuously deformed" into each other are treated as the same. So that includes stretching, rotating, squeezing, etc, but not ripping or tearing. Topology is mainly used in physics but there are also applications in robotics, computer science and computational geometry (i.e., vidya).>>206437252Do girls really do this pose?
>>206446039While a lot of people are claiming it's "tkmiz's audience" that leads to the zetsubouposting, I don't think it's really just that. I've seen it happen in a lot of other threads that are about depressing or otherwise relatable works. Roneryposting is something that never leaves /a/, it simply takes a different form.
>>206446109what other depressing or otherwise relatable works?I saw the manga list in the pastebin and none of them really seem similar to tkmiz to me (though I don't recognize some, I will check those out). Yuru yuri, nichijou, hinamatsuri, eizouken. Artistically they're very different of course but I thought Inio Asano's Solanin was similar to SSR. As for Shimeji, maybe Neko ga Nishi Mukya (https://mangadex.org/title/26618/neko-ga-nishi-mukya) or even Flower by Matsumoto Taiyou (https://mangadex.org/title/1220/flower-matsumoto-taiyou). I know they're not very similar in terms of plot or characters or anything. Just the overall atmosphere of SoL but with a general oppressive anxiety in the air. Like in Sartre's Nausea.>“I am. I am, I exist, I think, therefore I am; I am because I think, why do I think? I don't want to think any more, I am because I think that I don't want to be, I think that I . . . because . . . ugh!” >“People who live in society have learnt how to see themselves, in mirrors, as they appear to their friends. I have no friends: is that why my flesh is so naked?” Has anyone read No Longer Human? How is it? I feel bad for putting it off given tkmiz gave it an explicit call-out.>>206440121Her eyes look sad, like in a wistful way>>206439756New dream sequence when? Though the main storyline is getting more surreal as it is.
>>206447274In my experience so far, NHK, Watamote (pre-shippening), and a couple of other manga about otaku/hikkikomori. Tomboy threads also often devolve into roneryposting, although that tends to be moreso about relationships than anything else.
>>206445280How does it make no sense? It introduces book-chan as a member of the hole digging club and how she's related to sis, it also reinforces the fact that Mogawa has been obsessed with holes for longer than we realized.>>206446039https://e.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=kZDokZ8mIRL93l2Lm8CmfYs5dCybyrduwV>>206447274The dream chapter is probably my favorite chapter, it is both sad and uplifting, as it describes the pros and cons of being a shut-in (nobody hurts you but you're also isolated and nobody can help you if something goes wrong). Plus we get a small glimpse into shimeji's past, where she used to look a lot happier.
i just want to sleep for a while in a cool but heavy bed
>>206447724Made no sense TO ME. Specifically the donut thing, of which even after rereading the anons post I still don't get it.I'm fine with being a brainlet.
>>206449877What specifically about the donuts do you not get? It's basically just meant to show that digging the hole is a different way that the teacher lets out her creativity since most of her old art projects were hole-like to some extent.
>>206450253>It's basically just meant to show that digging the hole is a different way that the teacher lets out her creativity since most of her old art projects were hole-like to some extent.Okay now THAT I can understand.
Will they succeed at turning the earth into a donut?
>>206451412>Donut Earth theory
>>206451412Donut no, ponut yes
An early chapter. Well, Shimeji fills the hole in my heart, at least.I wonder if Sis and Mogawa-sensei are supposed to be foils of each other? Sis mentions the "hole filling" club was around when she was in school, though I don't think she was in it. But they're both on some sort of grand project to radically change the world.Sis' machine>To put it simply, it takes back the world...from god, something like thatWhereas digging holes is meant to be pointless. >>206427837Don't shorten it.
>>206451412>>206451615>end of manga>final panels zoom out>earth is a fish
>>206447274>Has anyone read No Longer Human? How is it?I read it recently because of tkmiz and loved it. A lot of it I could relate to or felt like it was taken straight out of my mouth.
>>206450556It’s like the hole was the continuous pattern through everything she liked.>>206391445I just realized if this story wasn’t done in tkmiz’s style and it was done in the style of, for example, the offputting and uncanny Lain episodes that focus on her “regular” life it could border on psychological horror without the need to alter the story or dialogues at at all. Just the atmosphere via the tone. Just an interesting and idle thought on how much tone alters the lens through which we view a story.
>>206451412is that what mogawa is trying to do i think yes
>>206438526you haven't added >>206430944
>>206447274No Longer Human is definite tkmizcore. It's about a boy who from a very young age feels completely alienated from his family and society and societal expectations of what constitutes a proper person. It's arguably autobiographical and quite harrowing overall.
>40 IP off by last thread
Don’t stick around too much in the zetsubou
>>206459402You just live alongside your good friend and enjoy things regardless.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFMg0t11rK0
>>206459631Nonetheless, it’s not good for your health to stick around in the zetsubou too long. Part of accepting zetsubou is then being able to move on from it
>>206460170That kinda depends on your zetsubou's power level. Serious enough and you just get along with it rather than "moving on". Then life is pleasantly bittersweet rather than unpleasant. i do agree with you in one aspect though and that's the non-stagnation one. Being able to keep moving is healthy even if it leads nowhere of perceived worth, being paralyzed is unhealthy. Ugoku ugoku and all that.
>>206460511I feel like alot of zetsubou anons are stagnating.
>>206460876One of the ones in the last thread decided to be proactive in finding friends after talking here about being walled off. We can't really control how stagnated they are through anonymous posts, but sometimes a bit of support helps no matter what form it takes.
This manga is too advanced for me
>>206455322Not the same anon but here you go: https://pastebin.com/nj3cXWaXI also included a torrent link for anyone that might want to download the tkmiz folder via torrent.
>>206461119>One of the ones in the last thread decided to be proactive in finding friends after talking here about being walled off.I know, because that's me
>>206462708Nice to have you around again
>>206462457Egg on mushrooms
>>206463207It’s nice to have someone to do dungeons with, i’m glad I did it
>>206464337I always messed up the egg when I tried to make one.
>>206464922I'm really glad Anon. Socializing makes hobbies fun, and you don't need full anonymity for that, who you are is pretty nice too. i used to play that and it's pretty fun. i don't want to derail the thread too much but I'm glad you made a little movement, zetsubou gets better when you share time with others, even though a lot of regular people still think free time means wasting time.
>>206464337I prefer french style omelets
>>206444256It's definitely Roland Barthes. He's quite difficult to understand, though, which is somewhere between ironic and fitting given his subjects.
>>206467933What did egg mean by this?
>>206469756She meant that Shimeji is the only one that can give her proper stimulation
>>206427837What is it?Looking at these reactions I don’t want to google it myself.
>>206472013It's a bit of a mystery. Dare you enter the magical realm?
>>206393420well not whole doujins, but there was 2hu and non-2hu porn like https://files.catbox.moe/2see2j.jpeg
>>206472760Loli is legal in most countries anyways, I doubt he's in trouble
>>206400876interesting framing of Sumida in the 3rd row
I finished the GLT show and am currently working my way through the manga, on volume 4 now. I've heard mixed things about Shimeji Simulation, is it a good read after I finish GLT?
>>206474774I really like it and if these threads are anything to go by it seems most people that enjoyed GLT will also like SS. With that said, SS is very strange and surreal, so it's definitely not for everyone. I'd say give it a try and see for yourself.
>>206405855>>206405601they're health supplements(some) elevens love them
>>206474774It's got a similar feel so if you like tkmiz you'll probably like SS too, but it's also a lot more surreal and disjointed. Like, I still can't tell you what it's about.
>>206474774It's weird but good, I liked GLT more but SS is certainly worth reading.
>>206407021>I want gookmoot to do a good job for the sake of these peopleoh Taki, if only you knew how bad things really are
>>206475012(Some) people everywhere love them.
>>206475008>>206475080>>206475083alright glad to hear it, I tend to like surreal things so I'll check it out once I finish GLT
>>206407321You insult based Taki-san, he never uses MTL.Did you even read the list? There are some creative phrases in there that even DeepL couldn't come up with.
good bye everyone, see you next month.where do people hang out until then?
>>206475642>where do people hang out until then?Far far away from the forechins, of course.
>>206475642Off my doorknob seems the most convenient.Nowhere really, maybe the Teibou threads if they aren't too cancerous
>>206475796The new episodes should be coming soon, right? I might want to pick up devilposting again.
I probably won't be making another thread for a bit of time since it devolves into zetsubou, but if anyone else makes a thread about our sweet potatoes or our mushroom omelette then I'll be there.
>>206475897It's out today
I liked this months chapter. The tkmiz SSR anthology 2 chapter was also nice.Take care anons, stay safe.The tkmiz thread is tired now, let it rest for a couple of weeks so that it may recover.
>>206475642On kindle in the confines of my room, looking for obscure manga nobody reads.
>>206475966Someone once told me that it seems that some people have a predisposition to develop dependencies.
>>206475642Lain threads, lurking, off site stuff like Discord
>>206474774This is a shimeji simulation thread so I doubt anyone would tell you to not read it
>>206476072We should get a token contrarian. Every cool thread has one.
>>206474774If you're enjoying SSR you're probably gonna enjoy SS, it has a lot of SoL elements like SSR and the post-apocalypse survival elements swapped with somewhat depressing surrealism, and just like SSR, it's filled with existentialism trough and trough.>>206476072It's not like there's a lot of content , anyone can read it in a few hours.
>>206476110I think the shitposter is more than enough.
I really really really want to have sex with tkmiz
>>206476110ok here I goI'm not depressed
>>206476284Get in line>>206476312Good for you
>>206476284I don't think you're the first one with those thoughts
>>206460876like that anon who's never eaten fish
Goodbye for another month /tkmiz/ friends.Try and come back with something interesting to share or at least do something interesting for yourselves while you're away.Read a book, eat some fish or try to enjoy the world we live in. It's not so bad once you learn to live with it.I expect to see you all back here again next month, understand?
>>206476614But I know what you mean. I have scores of unread books lying around, but I spent the last ten minutes greedily eyeing a book on typography I really want to buy.
>>206476797Thank you Anon, you're really nice. Look after yourself too, please.
>>206476668Plenty of people haven't eaten fish.t. hindu vegetarian>>206476797i will finally read no longer human by next month!>>206476284Yes>>206475966gotta go vintage. or college student homework>>206476027where do people even find discord servers? at least in IRC most servers had channel lists
>>206476938i'm just in small friend cliques really. i just use it as a message tool like MSN was.Take care Anon! i hope you enjoy the book. it's been a while since i read as well, i should try to look into that. i used to really love reading. i want to read some philosophy stuff i've been meaning to check since a while.
Until the next chapter!
>>206476938most discord servers are the same as irc servers, there's individual channels once you're connected to one. The main advantage that discord has is image embedding, audio/video streaming and a cancerous user interface.where people find servers?I guess from whatever twitch streamer they follow would have one or one their friends set up. I don't really bother with discord, I have an IRC group that I visit and that's enough.
>>206477170If you want to get back into it I'd recommend short stories. Here are a few. They can be at times difficult to read (even more so because they are short) but stick with it and it's ok to skip over parts you don't understand fully, you can always reread them since they're so short.Borges - Library of Babel (hey that sounds familiar, maybe it should be in the tkmizcore pastebin) - https://maskofreason.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/the-library-of-babel-by-jorge-luis-borges.pdfBorges - Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius - http://art.yale.edu/file_columns/0000/0066/borges.pdfKafka - In the Penal Colony - https://www.kafka-online.info/in-the-penal-colony.htmlBradbury - A Sound of Thunder - http://www.astro.sunysb.edu/fwalter/AST389/ASoundofThunder.pdfOf course you can always checkout the pastebin: https://pastebin.com/RcK067EH. There may be a more updated one floating around somewhere...
>>206477474>>206477170oh and of course murakami...the pastebin doesn't list any of his short stories.Murakami - Crabs - https://www.douban.com/note/264168062/
Last for loving all tkmiz anons!
>>206477474i've read most of Borges, he's amazing. i especially love his poetry. You have good tastes Anon, thanks for the other recommendations. Only Kafka stuff i've read is the classic Metamorphosis and i didn't read that one of Bradbury. Thank you again!
I SAID LAST FOR LOVING ALL TKMIZ ANONS!
