>>10524438This! Fuck, if only I hadn't been such an insecure bitch back then then I could have fully enjoyed the early 2000's community

> 2006> Discovered anime> Watch 80 episodes of inuyasha> Barely even enjoy it yet drawn to it> 2020> Adult that can do anything> Nostalgia posting on 4chanYep I've grown a lot
>>10524407fuck, hitting right in the oldfag feels there, OP
You can relive that OP by watching Yashahime and writing Sesshomaru x Rin fanfics while listening to One Last Kiss by Utada Hikaru

In High School i met my first weaboo Friend, i was very ashamed before i met her and she taught me not to care and just enjoy. we would discuss husbandos, sing cringe animu songs, share fanfics, dance pare pare, buy cheap vaguely lolita clothes. We went to japan together with school because we chose japanese third language. Fast foward now, we are 25, still friends still doing the same shit, exept we can karaoke and do weeb dance all night because i have my own place now.
>>10524441>early 2000's communityOn the bright side, you can never miss it and regret what the atmosphere is like in 2021.
I have a LiveJournal I wrote in my final years of high school back in the early 2000s. Reading over the past entries, I was such a weeb but I was happy for the most part. I fondly remember learning how to draw manga from Bakaneko and the fun I had on those forums, and starting countless Sailor Moon and Legend of Zelda and Pokemon fanfics and never finishing them. Toonami/Adult Swim/Animonday were my daily rituals. I miss using Napster to download my favorite anime and video game music and make CDs to listen to in the car.
Middle school since I started to be suicidal in high school.
>>10524407This morning when I got to have breakfast with my amazing son and incredible wife! Keep the past for good smiles, don't cling to it like it was the only good times in your life otherwise you won't try to make more!
>>10525974>Getting mom to buy me Gravitation and FAKE from Walden's Books.God damn this is a real fucking feel. Gonna listen to some Gravitation OST right now
>>10525974>>Getting mom to buy me Gravitation and FAKE from Walden's Books.BASED. I got my mom to buy me a Loveless manga in a tiny book store run by a sweet old lady. lmao little did they know...>>10530943>Fast foward now, we are 25, still friends still doing the same shit, exept we can karaoke and do weeb dance all night because i have my own place now.this is fucking cute
>>10524407>liking Inuyasha musicshit taste. Great series, shit music
>>10536202what, are you saying you dont want to CHANGE THE WORLD
>>10535292get out of here normalfag
>>10536202I like My Will, or at least the closing animation for season 1. It perfectly captures1. Kagome's sense of isolation and entrapment2. Two possible futures for her, depending on whether or not she learns to understand and embrace her emotions.
>>10524466Nobody wants to age past ~22
>>105244072011, went to my first con. None of my friends showed up or bothered to tell me, but I made new friends and had a great time.
>>10525974>Hunt for BL doujinshi on japanese sites with hidden passwords and not even knowing hiragana/katakanaDamn, I remember scanning every community related to Ace Attorney to find Apollo doujins
>>10530943>We went to japan together with school because we chose japanese third languageSo jealous of people that had these opportunities. I remember me and my Hetaliafag friend gushing about going to Comiket and Akihabara one day on an "otaku pilgirmage". Any nostalgic/cringe stories from when you two visited Japan?
