Anime Birthdays!

Hello /kind/, I've been celebrating anime character birthdays for around 4 years now and so, I'd like to make this thread to wish every character that I like a happy birthday when the time comes.
Doing this has increased my happiness by a lot! and I mean it! every day feels like a special day and it makes me motivated to do my best! just remembering that is the birthday of someone special brightens my day! and looking at the art that the character gets on that day is also nice.
I usually check this website https://www.animecharactersdatabase.com/birthdaycalendar.php or twitter, is filled with people wishing them a happy birthday and drawings!
I won't be posting about every character so if you like a character feel free to wish them a happy birthday in this thread too!

Anime is quite real, and even if waifus aren't, our relationships with them are REAL.

The stream

I want to watch movies with you, /kind/! To do this we must first establish when, where, and what we will be streaming.
>When?
Of course, a Halloween stream should be at night, so I'm thinking the stream should start at either 7pm or 8pm EST on the 31st of october.
The time is subject to change, so feel free to voice your concerns. I'm willing to do another stream earlier on for people who would otherwise watch if not for time zone discrepancies.
>Where?
I want it to be hosted at https://cytu.be/r/kindstream since there is no need for watchers to make an account to participate on cytube.
This venue may be subject to change.
>What?
This is where you, the people, come in. Please suggest horror movies for /kind/ to watch ITT! I will make a poll with your suggestions for /kind/ to vote on at a later date.

Spooky Thread!

Halloween is around the corner, /kind/! Do you like spooky things? This thread is for discussing all forms of spooky things, from campy movies or real experiences.
I've been slowly making my way through Silent Hill 2 for a while. I enjoy it, but it's a bit slow and I've had to restart after getting effectively softlocked because I'm stupid.
I also like Rob Zombie movies because they tend to be super over the top and edgy to the point that it's just goofy.

Cars?

Hey /kind/, me again. Do you all like to drive? What's your favorite car that you've driven? What's your dream car?
Personally, driving is my favorite activity. My favorite car is the Nissan 370z. I've been driving them since I started learning to drive. They're really smooth and easy to drive. My dream car is a Sileighty. I think they look really cool, and there's just something cool about having a mash up of two cars.

The best atmosphere for drinking tea is during a cold winter day as the sun sets early, turning the sky a warm orange that coats everything under it, while sitting nice and toasty with a blanket around you in a room with a low ceiling, looking outside to see all the ice and snow from your own warm little world, made entertaining by watching somebody slipping on ice and landing on their backside. Winter is almost here.

I watched it, Jewelpet Tinkle, as a child dubbed to Arabic (my second tongue)

of any shape or form, post here when you have something vidya related
I finished Star Fox for the SNES and I really loved that the game expects you to turn off the console after finishing it. Reminds me of other /kind/ games like Earthbound, Mario Kart 64 and Undertale
The theme of friendship is stronger on 64 though.

help

Was on the way to sort of actually getting myself together, but I fell back into misery far worse than I had before. I'm caught in a loop and it's hurting me physically at this point.

It's very hard to be comfy right now but I need it more than ever. I need things to take my mind off of the bad thoughts.

Catgirl game

The idea for this originated in 2016, pic related was the original inspiration. In the 2 years prior to that there was a project to 3d print a custom super soaker. That project didn't pan out but the ideas from studying that got integrated into the game idea. Originally this was going to be a space game of sorts with the player exploring various domes with different biomes in them on alien worlds. But upon seeing this pic the focus shifted as there seemed to be a lot of interest in making a game based on this concept on more than one image board thread.

Basic details;
Game name; Catgirl Pool Party (Catgirl Waterpark storyline)
Game Type; 2d sidescrolling puzzle platformer (16-bit style)
Playability; Singleplayer (For simplicity as first game)
Engine; Godot (simple and free to use)
Game screen resolution/screen size; 640x480 (2x zoom of 320x240 pixels)
Playable demo and some further info here;

Favorite Season

Hey /kind/! What's your favorite time of year?
For me, it's early fall. The distinct smell of the early morning air makes me feel nostalgic. It makes me remember being a little kid walking to the bus stop down the brick riverside road. Back when everyday was a new opportunity to have fun with friends, when I had a totally optimistic outlook on the future.
It's also the comfiest time of year. It's getting cooler, the days are growing shorter, and you get to wear warmer clothes!

Hello frens, my last grandfather is in the hospital with a terminal condition and doctors said he won't survive the next days. Shit, I wish I had visited him last week in his retirement home. We had a real close relationship and i spent mosy of my childhood days with my grandparents. Now, due to corona i am not allowed to visit him. I feel bad for not being there and wanted to get this off my chest. Thanks for reading

Wholesome anime/manga you recommend

Recently i come across watching the gem *So ra no wo to* and ended up liking it a lot

It seemed to have a nice blend of everything - slice of life humour and wholesomeness with episodes becoming gradually darker and intense as you progress through the series. It basically focuses on a small female-led battalion as they man an outpost for a small town with one member joining so she can learn how to play the bugle, but she eventually comes to understand the town's folklore as well as how to behave in the small battalion.

Rant thread

Tell us your problems and what’s bothering you right now.

My problem is that politics especially in America is fucking stupid and both sides are more retarded then a special ed school on crack. The far Left is saying to burn everybody you disagree with but not to do it, while the far right is saying that exact same thing. Remember when Politics wasn’t two retards screaming at each other? Trump fucked over America by making politics easy to understand and making it good for people to run around like chickens pecking each other not doing anything useful for anyone else.

Language learning thread

¡Hola mis amigos! I thought it might be a good idea to create a language learning thread for any of us here that are learning another language so that we can pool our resources together and possibly help each other out. I'm assuming that not everyone that posts here is a native English speaker, so for those of you that aren't and feel that your English might not be up to snuff you can hopefully get help from those of us that are native English speakers. So regardless of what language you're learning or wanting to learn I'm hoping that we can use this thread to help and encourage us in our language learning endeavours.

I'm learning Spanish. I'm using a mixture of Duolingo, Memrise, Busuu and Lingvist to gradually learn the language. I have downloaded a bunch of ebooks about learning Spanish but I haven't actually started reading them. My current attempt at Spanish started almost 220 days ago (at least that's how long my current Duolingo streak has been going for) and although I'm still essentially illiterate in the language I have noticed I'm understanding more of the language. Despite Duolingo focusing on Latin American Spanish I'm more wanting to focus on Castilian Spanish, although I'm not particularly picky either.

Besides Spanish I have also started messing about with Italian a bit since I personally find Italian to be one of the nicest sounding languages out there. Italian is more of a side thing though.

So anyway, that's all I can think of for the time being. Good luck to everyone out there.

Using happy cheerful media as a cope against suffering

Iyashikei and Moe,a sub-genres of slice-of-life, typically they have my favorite anime titles. they re what I focus on because it gives the same feeling as getting lost in the pictures of Hiroshige and Hokusai!

I find wholesome idyllic and relaxing works of art to be the superior type of media or AT LEAST in anime and manga

I read both horror and tragedic books and children comfy books. This is because i want to immerse my mind into absolute horror and bliss.

understanding their distinction. The idea that only artwork that puts emphasis on the cruelty or melancholy can be high art is a part of the reason the modern age is becoming madder. it is true that this world leans more towards the darkness and cruelty

But when I immerse my mind into Moominavalley or Iddyllic and peacful work of art it becomes real. IMO it is the best to forget this world and cling to the jewels of idyllic children/MOE art work as safe heavens to feebly resist the mocking tides of fate.

Where are you right now?

I've always wondered, why do people settle on a sort of life? In order to answer this, I've decided to ask the only people I consider my friends, /kind/, even of it's a small sample size. How far have you gone in life? What have you been through, and where has that brought you? What advice would you give yourself if you could communicate to yourself in the last?

ADHD venting

I feel like i’m “retarded” at times.
Sorry if the word offends anyone, but it’s the most blunt honest way to describe how i feel sometimes. I feel like i’m retarded.

I have pretty bad attention deficiency, to the point where i feel like my brain is shutting down at times like a windows XP computer. I just can’t converse with people normally or even pay a decent amount of attention to anything, I feel like a robot with every self conscious movement i make, i drop shit and accidentally break shit all the time, and being tall and lanky fumble all over the place and knock things over. I just feel flat out stupid.

It feels like someone turned on that stupid-orb from spongebob in my brain, just making me shut down all normal human functions.

When i’m on adderall i feel pretty fine, but i don’t take adderall during weeks when im unable to pay for it.

I know i’m not actually stupid, but i just don’t know what’s wrong with me. Even putting this post together felt mentally exhausting and i feel like it probably doesn’t even make sense :(. Is there anybody else who feels like this? Is there anyway to cope (without needing to take my adderall)? I try to stay as hydrated as possible if that helps my case.

/kind/ reading thread

What are you all reading these days, friends? I am currently enjoying reading How to Eat, written by the Zen Buddhist monk Thich Nath Hanh. It is a very comfy and peaceful book on how to enjoy eating more. Here is an excerpt:

"Six food contemplations for young people:

1. The food is the gift of the whole universe: the Earth, the sky, the rain, and the sun.

2. We thank the people who have made this food, especially the farmers, the people at the market, and the cooks.

3. We only put on our plate as much food as we can eat.

4. We want to chew the food slowly so that we can enjoy it.

5. This food gives us energy to practice being more loving and understanding.

6. We eat this food in order to be healthy and happy, and to love each other as family".

I hope you all have a good day!

Does being kind means weakness

I hate to admit this but at times i feel like being kind to people is submissive behavior and a sign of weakness. Being nice is only commendable if you're a person who can be useful to them in a pragmatic and egoist way because for them, it's a sign of being responsible with their status as superior beings.

I feel that people usually dont enjoy talking to really nice people
I used to be overly nice to everybody I met IRL years ago and they all seemed to appreciate me a lot for it, but things always ended up with those people fucking me over or taking advantage of me for being nice to them.


Nowadays I'm super bitter and I don't trust people enough to let myself be nice to them, I feel like allowing myself to be nice, kind and supportive to people would seem like a sign of weakness, how the f..k do I fix this? I'm really confused.

/kind/ dreams

I was waiting for the bus with my mother, she later decided she had to do something else and she decided to go something to do herself somewhere. I knew that one of my favourite musicians, and elder man with some knowledge in life despite being a bit nihilistic was driving his own bus and made it a portable restaurant with some english teaching as well. I decide to ride it in the middle of the foggy day. The colours that mostly stroke me where yellow and red, they were traditional colours from a old time. As I got in there he approached me, I was a big fan of his music. He asked me "spaghetti or classes", he apparently seemed to know me from somewhere else. I told him that my mother went to do something else, he understood. "Mothers these days are always frantic" or something along those lines was muttered by him. The atmosphere of the bus was sweet. It was dim lit, but lit enough to see everything, the floor was of wood, the curtains were red, the wood permeating most of the tables and floor and walls reflecting with the light gave a nice colour.
In the middle of the journey I hear music from a comedic show covered by composers from the 30s. The aesthetic for the album cover was also the same as the bus, something from the 30s-50s with the traditional music being used. It also didn't sound comedic at all, sounded more comfy than anything.
