I don't know what this style is called, but I like to call it the "y2k aesthetic". Basically, post wallpapers that look like they belong on a Windows XP machine, or an iMac G4. The more kitsch, the better! And the wallpapers don't have to actually be from the 2000s, they just have to look like it, in other words, wallpapers of modern anime are allowed, as long as they look the part.

On XP machines, we didn't use wallpapers like this, true. We would hoard wallpapers like these and never use them.

these ones are the closest things to y2k
y2k is an actual style based on late 90s early 2000s futurism not just shit from the 2000s

The anime art book style wallpapers were plenty popular in XP days, I would hoard them obsessively when I was like 11.

>>2210860
While I don't like some of the gross ass loli shit, because I have to defend them for this. It is shit one would have if they were using an XP-7 machine back then, if you are into anime.

and guess what this board is called, anime/wallpaper.... So yea, alot of the people here would have likely used the photos here as wallpapers back then.

You probably have to make some with that aesthetic yourself or upscale them. Or look for new ones with that aethetic.

Thanks for the help! I'm still looking for it myself, trying over and over again on many different places and still have had no luck, I'm starting to think it's lost forever (the pic itself is from at least 2000) and it was never backed up on any wallpaper related website. If I do find it one day I'll be sure to post it on this thread if it's still alive. I'm gonna use >>2223308 for now, it looks great on my monitor.

Was lucky star wallpapers really that popular back then?

idk. When I think Y2k I think anime paired with trendwhore style and vivid colours. Sometimes text. That's what I had on my desktop back then. I didn't have internet for years when after moving in 2004, so can't really speak for everything that came after that.
