Who's the Osaka of the West?
O-suck-a these nuts.
>>121078309What’s her character then maybe I can answer
>>121078382Osaka is Osaka. >>121078372That’s not even close to working.
>>121078309there simply isn't
>>121078309The dumb blond from Loud House.
>>121078487Now I kinda wanna see the knife prank done with leni and lorihttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37mPoKQijj8
>>121078487>blondIf you're referring to a female, it is spelled blonde. If you're referring to a male, it is spelled blond. The more you know.
Who's the Mr. Anderson of the East?
>>121078382spacey, can have strange interpretations of events and do odd things
Just posting best girl. Besides yomi
I'm not crazy about the dub for this but the performance for Osaka was pretty good.
>>121078309She's pretty unique to be honest. She reminds me more of a real girl in my class who was on the Asperger's spectrum. She ended up in remedial class, got pregnant and quit school at 16.
go team seaslug
>>121078580For me, it's Kagura and Sakaki. Simple as.
>>121078580>not Miss SakakiShe's so coolAlso I get very nostalgic feelings now listening to the opening and ending.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzV9ug9BQdshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBzKXP9cnIQ
>>121078309Osaka is in the west.The Eastern equivalent would thus be Tohoku.
>>121078382Osaka has severe attention-deficit disorder, and possibly autism spectrum disorder. She has a wildly abnormal way of thinking about things, and is generally very slow and deliberate in her actions and thought patterns. She isn't stupid. Quite intelligent actually, able to learn and retain a great deal of trivia. However, she struggles academically because she fails to retain information she isn't directly interested in learning.
>>121078535No that's dumb. The words are functionally identical. I'm not following arbitrary semantics whether or not to add an E on the end based on gender. What if I'm talking about a group of people or "blonds" as a general topic?
>>121078649>No that's dumbWelll technically 'blond' can apply to anybody but 'blonde' is specifically for women.
>>121078649>gendersex. there's no gender.
>>121078686There is undeniably gender as a grammatical concept. A wig has no sex but you'd still write "blonde wig."
>>121078649Tough shit dude that's how the language works. Every language has arbitrary retarded bullshit.
>>121078632I miss that Sakaki hentai flash.
>>121078649>GenderMade-up neologism created by John Money in an effort to 'deconstruct' identity using post-modernist theory. Had no degree in psych.. Turned out to be a pedophile who just wanted to molest children and used critical theory to get that. Still touted as factual and credible to this day even though both of the twins he used ended up committing suicide.
>>121078465I unironically like this. Literally has more personality than anime
>>121078784it was drawn by a pedo fart fetishist
>>121078633isn't it Tokyo? capital of the east?
>>121078649>tpguess the flag
>>121078845Doesn't mean he can't make something nice too
>>121078753As do I. I like the Mario edits.
>>121078642>Osaka has severe attention-deficit disorder, and possibly autism spectrum disorder.

>>121078845Who? I feel like I recognize the style but not the name
>>121079073I don't know who he is, but LWB is the signature on the drawing
>>121078813King of the Hill is moe you fucking retard
>>121078784I wouldn't say more personality.They're highly kinetic and more abstract than Azuma's grounded designs that aim to portray closer to the actual dimensions of real school girls.I feel if Azumanga Daioh! was done with these designs the tempo would feel terribly off because the designs scream for movement and extreme cartoon action.>>121078855Tokyo is literally the "Eastern Capital", yes.But Osaka is not a capital city, it is the traditional commercial center of the Southwest which is culturally and linguistically rather distinct from the Kanto area, where Azumanga is set. Therefor, being from Tokyo is unremarkable as that's everyone. To mirror her situation as the one from another part of Japan along the banana that is Honshu, she'd have to be from the Northeast, the largely rural and under developed Tohoku region. Maybe even Hokkaido.So maybe they'd call her Miyagi or Sapporo. And she'd probably be associated with coal mining, melon farming or the like.
>>121079073animatedjames but under a new name
>>121078487But isn't Leny a hottie with big boobs? Osaka is average-looking and flat.
>>121079236That's a hottie in Jap standards.
>>121079145Oh I get what you meanI also confused osaka for kyoto
osaka more like whoresaka
>>121079341I wish I could have impregnated her.
>>121078993I think you're onto something
>>121079236>But isn't Leny a hottie with big boobs?She's simply not ugly, and her boobs aren't particularly big, you've seen too much fanart.
>>121079377She's a hottie, yes. The other anon is wrong in that her boobs aren't big.
>>121078382Literal autism.That's it
>>121079265Nah, Osaka's meant to be average-looking in the canon. Her boobs are probably normal for Japan, I give you that.>>121079377>She's simply not uglyI saw some episodes of the earlierearlier seasons, I'm pretty sure Leny gets at least some attention from guys. I think in the canon she's meant to be a hottie. A dumb, dumb hottie. Which Osaka isn't.
>>121078993You know, "Eddy, carrots are good for your eyes. Can it dial a phone?" honestly does sound like something that Osaka could say.
>>121079536Japs are very similar in appearance. Granted she is suppose to be average. It was a joke though.
>>121079536>Which Osaka isn't.speak for yourself
Osaka is the hick.
>>121079577>speak for yourselfOK. I think in the canon she's meant to be a hottie. A dumb, dumb hottie. Which I am not.Better?
>>121079536She's a 17 year old girl with blond hair, unless your ugly most boys will gok at you.
>>121078580I've always like Tomo and her trollish personality. The big downsides is her intense, ceaseless energy despite somehow having zero stamina. I also liked that she changed her hairstyle every year.
>>121080042Only once. Her short hair looks like shit. Also, her lack of energy is just a lack of cardio. She sprints and loses it all in the race.
>>121080042tomo is a necessary evil
>>121078309According to google Osaka’s sister city (at least in America) is San Francisco.
>>121080138>Only once.She's had at least three off the top of my head: past her shoulders, mid-length and parted to the sides, and boyishly short.
>>121080356That's too, just a difference between animation and comics.
Tomo with short hair is the cutest thing, and I won't hear otherwise.
Who is the Sakaki of the west?
>>121080612Isn't Sakaki American?
>>121080663She's referred to as having "American-sized" tits, but she's completely Japanese. Tomo is "Japanese" since she's flat, and Yomi is "Hawaiian" since she's not quite flat but not as busty as Sakaki.
>>121080746But Hawaii would also be 'Murica.
>>121081055It's a bit different from the rest of America and it's roughly between Japan and America geographically.
>>121080746BEEG AMERIKAN TIDDIES
>>121079577Nyamo should have sex with male students.
>>121078309Who's the Yotsuba of the west?
>>121081130Was thinking the same thing
>>121078465What are the episodes like?
>>121078642How easy would it be to get Osaka in the sack?
>>121081409Hilda + Calvin.
>>121081528About average. She'd be able to catch on to your intentions, but since she isn't very shy, it would be possible with proper courtship. Osaka would be a good girlfriend, but won't sleep with you just to sleep with you. She's the kind of girl you need to start a relationship with.
>>121078642someone should hook her up on some adderall or ritalin then.
>>121081690Do not drug Osaka
who is the Chiyo of the West?
>>121081409/co/ doesn't have Yotsuba due to excessive porn addiction and ironic detachment preventing them from enjoying cute things for being cute and nothing else.
>>121081836>/co/ doesn't have Yotsuba due to excessive porn addiction and ironic detachment preventing them from enjoying cute things for being cute and nothing else.>Remember even Ducky's VA has porn of herNothing is safe.
>>121081587I know you're trolling, but it still hurts.
>>121081903I started using 4chan after he left and I still miss him.
>>121080422Well at least in the anime she has three distinct hairstyles, though it's at its shortest during the summer. The reference art for the anime displays it, and considering its stylistic fidelity, I'd think the same goes for the manga.
>>121082139He was an actual cuck though so it was best he left lol
>>121082139When did he leave again?
>>121082139his ted talk is great
>>121078813Bobby Hill might honestly by western Osaka considering the outside of the box thinking, memeability and everyone liking drawing his face.
>>121078309I just realised that this thread has 100+ replies. Whew.
>>121078309All our female characters are awful, we could never have our own Osaka without completely ruining it and making her very annoying. Throw in some "fucks people over but is sympathetic due to her nature" for more likelihood of shit.
>>121084867Nah dude. Gwenpool is one of the best female characters of all time.
>>121082492Honestly I think he just saw the writing on the wall with the site getting worse and left before it went completely tits-up.
>>121085910Why was she so thicc for one frame?
>>121081836>>121081883This, people here just can't stop thinking with there dick to actually enjoy something cute.
Are you guys seriously implying that /a/ isn't full of coomers?
>>121086229To be fair. Most of the people who make characters or shows and try to make cute stuff in the west always try to hide their degeneracy. Azuma started out making hentai, got his jollies then made official Tenchi Muyo stuff and Sailor Moon Doujins, then made the worlds most popular anime for a time, then made an iconic manga. To replicate that kind of success and respect the modern equivalent would have to be a newgrounds animator turned wholesometuber turned show runner. Which is happening more and more these days.
>>121079155>>121079107If it really is him, he's not doing a good job at hiding it
>>121081409tora is so cool
>>121078546Tora san.>>121078558Xavier renegade angel wierd? Uncle grandpa weird, or less weird?
>>121086138That’s just wrong, dude.
>>121081878that's more like Hakase
>>121087158Hakase is more like Doom
Get back to your board Weeaboo
>>121089618A bit late
>>121081690No, medicating your children at the drop of a hat is for white people.
>>121086229>user was banned for this postdoes /a/ really?
Homestar Runner or Homsar.
>>121078649Then don't speak the language.
>>121078526That'd be fun.
>>121078993holy fuck kek
>>121090071Public executions are kinda common in /a/. As it should. But this is /co/ and rules don't matter. People whinge about what's should be done to make /co/ better but better moderation and following board rules is all it needs.>inb4 banning people for something so shallow as dissing on Yotsuba is retardedWelcome to 4chan.
>>121078382>all the people telling this anon it's autism or spaceyOnly half right. Osaka is a space case from a part of Japan that's stereotypically known for being fast talking, impolite, forward, jokesters. If you're picking a /co/ Osaka that character has to be playing against their stereotype in addition to being a space case.
>>121087135The character in question >>121085910 is a teacher, not a student.
>>121086371This.A LOT of Jap creators started out as horny motherfuckers making porn and the like, because they had an actual outlet they got it out of their system then moved on to make other stuff as they got older.No such thing exists in the west, since making porn (especially the kind of porn that guys like Tadataka Kawasaki and Nanashi made) basically ensures that you will never have a real career in western animation, and since no one in the west cares about non-superhero comics and no one ever wants to adapt books into an animated property nowadays, you're basically forced to completely separate your porn from your professional work or never draw any to begin with.
>>121089663too bad miyuki was a forgotten character and didn't have 1/3rd the appearance and relevance of chiyo-chan
>>121090247/co/ needs more public bans
>>121090349This guy gets it!
I wanna sniff her crotch.
i like tomo osaka and yukari the best kurosawa and kagura also good dont understand the appeal of yomi or sakaki at all desu the rest are just ok
Best thread on /co/ right now
>>121078535wrong. "blond" can apply to women as well.
>Osaka of the WestDallas
>>121078309I want a a TV movie sequel where its all of them in their 30s catching up at the beach house. Some of them have kids, Tomo became a police officer, they all get a happy get bitter sweet grown up ending.
>>121082492like 2015 ish
>>121081409She looks like the 4chan girl
>>121096829God imagine moot returning one day and playing some mid-20th Century military march on every board.
>>121096844that she does, anon
It's Leni, you dumb bastards
>>121085910Woah, where'd all that ass come from?
>>121078993By Jove, I think he's cracked it!
>>121078642>However, she struggles academicallydoesn't help that the teachers don't know what she's called and put her down as osaka
>>121078993And the first prize goes to...
>>121078993>Ed>intelligentSpot on otherwise, though.
>a /co/ thread with actual humorous discussion post 2012Color me surprised
>>121078558gravity falls Soos?
>>121097575But she's a blonde hottie!
>>121099454>It had to be from /a/How sad
>>121079536>Which Osaka isn't.Then why was she sparkling in her introduction scene?
who is the Kimura of the West?
>>121099454It's the magic of Azumanga.
>>121101163Character that seems like a massive pervert but is actually pure and has a cute daughter?
>>121099454Azumanga's just somehow stuck in this website's DNA, even all these years later it still generates good threads. Crazy, in the best way.
>>121078993...that works almost too well.
>>121102570moot was part of some IRC group Raspberry Heaven (name of the Azumanga Daioh ED song) that was associated with the SA anime forums before making 4chan. Azumanga Daioh is part of the founding of this website in a way.
for me, it's kagura
>>121104786>tomboy who grew huge boobs but isn't confident about themCute.
>>121104546A bunch of early memes that would come to define certain styles of meme templates also started as Azumanga Daioh templates. It's kind of weirdly enduring.
cease resistance! /co/ has been occupied!
>>121105881Miss me with that gay shit.
>>121101079It's common knowledge that the best discussion on any topic is outside its board.
>>121106732>Only threads I enjoyed on /v/ were /an/ threadsAnd also that Labyrinth of Refrain one but it might as well be a /vg/ thread.
>>121103539>you talkin’ to me?
>>121078372I slightly smiled
whats the Cromartie High School of the west?
>>121078309>/a/fag posts literally who on /co/>everyone knows who she is>I'll never watch enough anime to be a part of anime culture
>>121078309If her eyes where further apart, it would be fucking Two Kinds.Which means ugly as shit.
>>121108576just watch it, it`s worth it
>>121108576She's as old as this site I think.I imagine oldflags were posing gifs of her on /a/ and /b/ back in the 00's
>>121108625OSAKA NO DONT DO ITthe demon core is probably the best best nip meme I've seen yet
>>121108655sometimes I wonder whats it like to be an oldfag back when the site was first a thing. Alas, I was born a zoomer
What really got me wondering is why have we never had a zany slice of life comedy cartoon like azumanga daioh, Pani Poni, and Lucky star when it's a well known fact that plenty of the current cartoon creators are total weebs.
>>121108655/f/ is the last remaining oldfag board
>>121108696It was fun, way more anime-focused though. Up until about 2008 you could make anime threads on pretty much any board you wanted, I very distinctly remember the entire website basically watching some series like Death Note, Gurren Lagann, and Haruhi. It was also much more goofy, but at the same time serious conversations were common as well. People knew which threads were just fun and which were meant to be more discussion-oriented, and generally kept them separate.
>>121108576It was basically the most popular show on this site for the first few years of its existence and had a pretty big impact in its foundational days.
>>121108576This is not only anime culture, it's 4chan culture. Do you at least know who Yotsuba is?
>>121108576Azumanga is the grandmother of internet culture dude. Just watch it and you'll basically be caught up with what every "slice of life" show imitated for 20 years before isekai took its place.
>>121079268It's legit out there. Osaka is rad. And every time I meet folks from that area they're more easy going. I have a very positive stereotype of it.
osaka is upset! what did you do, /co/?
>>121081130WATASHI NO CRESTA!!!!!
>>121108830Cool story, Chiyo.
>>121090071/a/ has a 40yo mod that has been babysitting the board since 2009 or 2010.He even had minions and janny who'd enforce his way of "public modding"
>>121078309Man it’s been years since I last watched this show. Does it still hold up?
>>121112784Yes, very much so.
>>121106521It hides all the posts I quoted? Is that what you're saying?
>>121108576It's just boomer shit. It's like caring about Hazbin
Remember when Osaka farted, but she didn't notice, and she thought the smell was a ghost?
>>121078309Probably Montreal, used to be the big major centre but nobody really cares about it anymore
>>121078309Jessica Raine Moser.
>>121116145And Louise is Tomo.
>>121112409>>121112426>>121112469>>121112494>>121112511>>121112540>>121112573>>121112597>>121112637For the love of Christ please tell me there's more of these.
>>121078309i know this is a shitty head cannon, but i really think that ben and osaka would be good friends
>>121112987I don't see the relation between Hazbin Hotel and Azumanga Daioh.
>>121117663Just think about it, both are dumb, but not the kind of dumb you want to punch in the face, more like the kind of dumb you want to chuckle at, and, knowing how is ben with his interpersonal relationships, osaka would be a very good friend of his, since both are just laughting at what the other one does
>>121117848they'd be good platonic buddies for sure! but would she know about ben's secret?
>>121117864i mean, sure, it would be for better since he can protect her when they go out for a smoothie or something
>>121093108ADHD is a meme, just knock'em in the head until they settle down
>>121117882and since the omnitrix has a translator for every form of language. ben could help osaka with english
>>121118014>ben>helping anyone studyGREY-MATTER!
What's the Azumanga Daioh of the West?
>>121118065And also, since ben has a car, osaka doesn't have to suffer the concequences of yukari's driving anymore
>>121118086you know what? fuck it, in the next /co/ drawthread i'm gonna request osaka and ben going for a smoothie
>>121118075Azumanga Daioh, if you keep going west long enough
>>121108576>I'll never watch enough anime to be a part of anime cultureAnd there's nothing wrong with it.
>>121090349>autistic from New JerseySomewhere between Linda and Gayle
>>121116975There were fucking hundreds way back in the day, I think almost every manga page was edited at some point. No idea how many have survived.
>>121112784It's the only anime from the 21st century that's worth watching. Simple as.
>/co/trannies attempting to talk about actual good animated showsyiiiikes
>>121108625WHY DID THEY DO THIS WITH A FUCKING SCREW DRIVER?! Could they really have not made some sort of plastic apparatus to slowly lower it that catches at a certain point to prevent complete destruction of your dna?
>>121122588sure you could, also use shins to prevent the top from falling or even do it remotely. but it wouldn't look as cool, would it?
>>121122416Have they ever held a conversation?
>>121108830Sounds like fun, Chiyo-chan.Wish I was around for that.All I get are wojacks and political shitflinging from both sides nowadays.
>>121122564Who makes those?
>>121122673I remember seeing a story of some guy slowly dieing over a month becaus ehis body couldn't repair anything after getting exposed at point blank range to that thing.
>>121118075Something about cute girls? I dunno the west doesn't really do that. An adaptation that's mostly beloved by people but hated by the author? Best example I can think of is Lord of the Rings even if Chris isn't technically the author.
>>121123451/b/ circa 2006
>>121125681azuma doesn't hate the anime, stop spreading lies
>>121125740Yeah I looked it up after his post and couldn't find any hard evidence of it, just other people repeating it. Is that just an old rumor?
>>121125782*granted I didn't look hard
>>121125705You know i almost forgot /b/ was a thing it's been so long since i have even thought about going to that board
>>121101163Reminds me of that one kid from Hey Arnold. Well, if you combined the kid that stalked Helga and Curly
