2021 is already one third of the way over. Have you made the most of it so far, anon? Have you been under fire more than you expected this year? Maybe it feels like there are opportunities you still need to seize, that require you to change your approach? Here’s some silver bullet advice, inspired by the best magical girl of all time: You need to be tougher. You need to shoot for a tomorrow better than the comfort of today. You need to open fire on your dreams, and blast as many bullets as you can in the direction of whatever stands in your way until it isn’t standing any more. You’ll never be as young as you are right now, so set your sights on something special this month, and go ballistic until you get there!In between the action, when it’s time to reload, come back here, and enjoy our perpetual Homura celebration. Locked and loaded - thread 113 is here and ready to shoot its shot.Archive Archive:Tiny URL followed by / homurabestgirlPrevious Thread:>>3875031
I had a certain set of metaphors in my crosshairs when I made this thread.
PROTIP: Never be gunshy posting Homura
You could say I was aiming for a clearer thread theme this time around.
It might be a longshot, but hopefully we'll have only quality art in this thread!
I brought out the big guns for this thread
Here's the unedited art from the OP image. Enjoy, and be sure to stay on target contributing to our threads!
and all is well
We could be pro Fortnite gamers
could you all post your homura screencaps?

Quiet thread this time around.
>>3897925Can't think of much to say this time around. Just watching anime and taking it easy for a while.I've been considering giving famitracker another shot, but I still don't know the first thing about music making and I don't learn all that well through trial and error if I don't know exactly what I'm supposed to be doing, so I haven't given it much in the way of any serious thought.
>>3897925Yeah, I noticed that, too. I guess to break up the silence, I'll blogpost a bit. I started a new job recently and I've been really cleaning up my diet, so I'm doing good overall. Still, my progress is kind of slowing and cooking quality home-cooked meals costs a lot of time and money. So, that's getting to be kind of draining, but I'm doing well regardless.>>3897982Cool, you're thinking of writing music? Good luck, I wish I could give some advice but I hope you enjoy it!
>>3897925this is the issue with recurring threads like these. people create communities and refocus their energies on talking instead of posting new art. you expect people to talk instead of post.
>>3898209In fairness, this is the biggest problem with /c/ as a whole imo. It doesn't really have much of a role outside of posting images. Even if we didn't have """generals""" on here, you'd still run into this with characters who are overwhelmingly popular, Homura obviously being one of them.Frankly, without the occasional conversations I wouldn't really be here. I know where to find more images and I'm already following a good number of madohomu artists, but keeping threads like this one open and seeing people chat every now and then without having to deal with the inherent 4channess (for lack of a better term) of other boards, makes it a cozy experience. Hell, other """generals""" have discord groups of their own, like the keion ones, and while you can easily tell how young the people in them are, it's not that bad of an experience because it's completely natural to want to chat with people, even anons you've met on one of the more silent/image-focused boards.>>3898087I don't know if I'm really gonna get into it yet. As I said, even knowing where to start is next to impossible with any artistic endeavor, and that's bad for me given how much I rely on structure to learn anything. Still, I've been thinking about it on and off for the last few years, and the 4cc coupled with an old favorite game of mine are undeniably a good source of motivation that I could rely on.I'll have a whole week off work soon, and I'm really tempted to spend a little bit of time on this every day when that time comes, if only to find out if this is the kind of activity that I could stick with in the long run.>Still, my progress is kind of slowing and cooking quality home-cooked meals costs a lot of time and money.Regardless, it's a step forward, which is great. Anything you can do to make cooking a more enjoyable and less draining experience?
>>3898217>inherent 4channessyes, i've recently begun to doubt whether this place has ever been fun to use or if it's always just been 2edgy5u type shit baited up the ass. i don't like the occasional linguistic twinges from twitter, reddit, tiktok, etc. even though i know that's natural and that i'm a fool for wanting to regress.i want /c/ to remain what it is, but what it is is confused.
>>3898277>i've recently begun to doubt whether this place has ever been fun to use or if it's always just been 2edgy5u type shit baited up the assHonestly? Both at the same time. If anything I feel like, overall, the place has gotten ever so slightly more mature, more willing to joke around (even things like the Gimiposting in the /f1/ threads) and less 3edgy5u over the last decade or so, and I don't think that's just because I've gotten better at knowing which threads to hop into and which ones to ignore (though I reckon /jp/'s as shit as ever outside of the comfy train stream threads).The feeling of finding the odd diamond in a sea of shit is still an integral part of 4chan and I don't see that ever changing. Hell, not even the occasional twitter etc incursions are doing much to change that, despite my own best efforts since joining that god-forsaken place. If anything, I feel like, if we were to regress like you said, we'd gain absolutely nothing from it: we're not getting back that odd mixture of novelty, disgust and intrigue that I'm sure we both enjoyed when we first stumbled upon this place, and all we'd really be doing is making it harder to find things worth pursuing here.
>>3898217>even knowing where to start is next to impossible with any artistic endeavor, and that's bad for me given how much I rely on structure to learn anythingI'm reminded of an exchange from Kiki's Delivery service, between Kiki and Ursula, the chick living by herself, as a painter. Ursula makes an observation about how magic and painting are a lot alike, and how occasionally, she just can't paint. Kiki asks what Ursula does during those times, and Ursula replies, "When that happens, all one can do is struggle through." Kiki then asks what she should do, if she can't fly at all. And Ursula says, "Then I stop drawing. I take walks, look at the scenery, take naps, do nothing. Then after a while, all of a sudden I get the urge to draw again."Maybe you should try something similar, anon, and ease off until the mood strikes you. Or perhaps try adding structure to chaos, where for X amount of time per day, you do something unstructured for your art.>>3898209No need to get riled up, anon. I'm only making an observation, and you certainly don't have to talk if you don't want to. I am curious as to what you see /c/ as, given what >>3898217 said, about there being better places to find new art (especially given Homura's franchise is ten years old), and there being more focused platforms for communicating out there.
>>3897925nothing wrong with that>>3898217>other """generals""" have discord groupsi believe that to only be one or two keion threads and the lwa thread to advertise a """"/c/"""" discord channel, i won't ever touch that server as i don't like 99% of weebs
>>3898317if you think it's just the keionfags you're sorely mistaken
>>3898327well i'm basing that observation based what i can see. i've only ever seen discord discussion in a few of the keion threads and in the lwa thread - and i go through a good amount of threads on /c/
I hope that's less quiet for you.
>>3898317You're not missing out on anything. It's not the worst, but it's exactly what you'd expect a Discord server to be. Frankly, the only reason I'm there is because I'm in the process of watching keion right now after putting it off for so many years.>>3898309Yeah, that's a good way to look at it. Lines up well with how I want to treat it and what I'd want to get out of it (which is to say, a bit of casual fun for myself without being too serious about it).
Guess the 4th movie is actually happening, huh? Wouldn't be surprised to see a slight influx of people in these threads.
>>3898217>In fairness, this is the biggest problem with /c/ as a whole imo. It doesn't really have much of a role outside of posting images.That's the whole point.This is a Homura thread, not a blog thread. I click on the Homura thread to see Homura, not to read blogs.
>>3898574Hence my own point, because I cannot for the life of me imagine a more wasteful, devoid-of-any-purpose board than /c/ in its intended image-only form. Hell, pixiv makes that obsolete all on its own, and that's without adding the boorus and twitter into the mix. Judging from the replies here and what I've seen in general in other threads here, I'd wager your view is far from uncommon, but also in the minority.
>>3898581It sounds like you're looking for Discord, not /c/.
>>3898603Fuck discord its a ban happy autistic shithole
>>3898317Cant blame you. The PMMM discords are all ban happy shitholes bitching about how embarrassing dropping their tuna sandwich in front of their friends at lunch the other day is more important than talking about whatever the fuck the server is literally made to talk about.
>>3898603Conversely though, it sounds like you're looking for pixiv, not what /c/ currently is. There was a time when I would've agreed with you, but that's gone now.
>>3898608/c/ has a nice niche as a shrine/ritualposting board right now. I'm not against genuine discussion (which is in no way prohibited or discouraged here), what I'm against is discussion simply for the sake of filling the text field - that's how you get things like the current state of the waifu thread.
>>3898217>In fairness, this is the biggest problem with /c/ as a whole imo. It doesn't really have much of a role outside of posting images.Even still, /c/ feels like a welcoming board because of it. It's relieving to find somewhere where people actually enjoy anime, compared to the obnoxious self-awareness seen in social platforms. On /c/, actions speak louder than words. There's no requirement at all to speak - you show your love for a character through beautiful artwork instead. That said, it's always nice to see anons here break the ice and want to talk about little things going on with their lives. Makes /c/ stand out compared to other 4chan boards.
NEW MOVIE NEW MOVIE ANNOUNCED
>>3898614Yeah, we definitely seem to both get and want to get somewhat different things out of /c/. I'm not exactly a "blogging enthusiast" or anything of the sort - I keep mine to a minimum in terms of both quantity and length, usually as a twice-per-thread reply to my reply to another person's blogpost if they (whether out of courtesy or interest) show any interest. That said, I definitely like replying to other people's occasional blogs out of curiosity and feel like they breathe life into these threads in a way that the images alone never could for me. Hell, without me getting into the 4cc and being reminded in the last summer cup that /c/ actually exists, I would never have found out that people were finally doing more than just posting images here (though to your credit, I've definitely learned to appreciate the quieter periods).I'm definitely with you on the genuine discussion front, but at the same time, what's even left to discuss that people would actually want to discuss? Take that book that was mentioned one or two threads ago - it's an interesting analysis from someone who's definitely done a good amount of research, but only one other person (apart from me) read it and talked about it, and they only made one post about it. I reckon most people here get their fill of such discussions from talking to friends or, heaven forbid, replying to people on /a/ or other places, so you're largely left with people that are like either yourself or myself. Least the 4th movie ought to help with that.>>3898616Oh I'm completely with you on that. Both the periods of silence and the occasional discussions (whether blogposting or, rare as it is, actual on-topic stuff) are cozy in a way that only /jp/'s train stream threads really rival in my eyes. Certainly beats /a/'s annoying contrarian nature or social media's... well, social media tendencies.
MADOKAMI GRANT HOMURA ANOTHER GERMAN SONGat any rate, i always find the issue with defining blogposting to be that anything where you use 1st person pronouns are similar to blogposting. unless you're flinging insults at other people, which gets boring, you'll be talking about yourself. now in big threads that's fine, but here, because of the limited pool of posters, cycles back into something that really does look and feel like a blog
>>3898643I don't mind that very much. Wanting to talk about yourself in a comfortable environment is natural and should, at least to a reasonable extent, be encouraged. Obviously that "reasonable extent" is vague and hard to define even on a personal level, but I'm at that age where I reckon too much of it is better than nothing at all, especially since we're still posting images and fulfilling /c/'s basic purpose while doing so.
>>3898647There's also the fear of /a/ and outsiders to the Homura threads that make it feel like we ought to tone it down.
>>3898651Conversely though, I don't think we should be needlessly insular. Yeah, it's never nice to have to deal with unpleasant people, but compared to actual good newcomers I've hardly seen any such people (from /a/ or anywhere else) during my time here, probably because this place is so quiet and largely uncontroversial that they'd find trolling and whatnot to not be worth much.
>>3898617which in turn means more homura art, which is the best outcome>>3898647>especially since we're still posting images and fulfilling /c/'s basic purpose while doing so.so long as this is fulfilled then there's no harm in it. the worst is hopping into a thread to find it filled with textposts that don't fit on /c/ at all - at least give anons who don't care for your conversation some cute images to save.>>3898651majority of shitposters come from there so thats where it stems from. not everyone coming from /a/ is bad, but majority of bad people are coming from /a/
fact: one of the best outfits in anime history
i suppose now's the time to read all the side literature for madoka...does anyone have a reading list for which ones are canon?
>>3900044That's an excellent question I also have. I've put off reading the side stories and manga for years; now seems like as good a time as any to check it out.

>interfering with Homura's hair style
Another image whose style I really like.What would you do if you had no responsibilities (work, school, whatever you're doing) for an entire week?
>>3901362i would do what i normally do: post on /c/, clean, and look for more things to post on /c/
>>3901362harvest images for /c/posting, post to db and gb, post to /c/.
>>3901661Blastin' this thread with images, I hope.
