Hello. I have not been around in a long while. But it seems like the 進撃の巨人 (Attack on Titans) OP is starting to become popular for MAD videos. It’s kind of too early to say anything, but so far it seems to have pretty good appeal for being one of those songs that can go with anything. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it become a fad in the west too. 進撃の巨人OP差し替えシリーズ has 433 total hits on Nico. The most popular version already has over one million views. http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm20581688

/a/ lurker. I like anime, manga, and video games. I also watch shows like America’s Next Top Model and the Apprentice.
Currently, I am a huge fan of Idolm@ster. I also have some interest in fighting games. Feel free to follow me on twitter. :)

Small question, but what exactly would 番長 translate to? I always had the impression that they were some kind of high school gang boss, but I know this isn’t 100% accurate.
This is a humourus line used many times on various 4chan boards. It makes fun of the desperation some people have in relationship situations. It’s also commonly associated wth Forever Alone. Urban Dictionary’s entry Facebook Group
I don’t think it’s related. ^^; Though, Soul Eater’s Moon and Sun are pretty interesting.
http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/the-moon Ok. Article is up. I’ll continue to look into this as I have time. >>; If anyone has information, please feel free to request editorship.
I looked at the Legend of Zelda sub-entries and I noticed there was no entry for the Moon from Majora’s Mask. I looked around and there’s quite a bit of fan-made content for it. Examples: I also found a lot of different craft and 3D modeling for it. Would this be something significant enough to create an entry?
Ah. I see. I knew that the Ami/Mami version was the most popular, but that reason is pretty interesting. I’ll add that to the Tokachi Gold section. :) Thanks!
Oh. And sorry to double post, but can Te-te-te be moved to submeme under Idolm@ster?
Speaking of Agent of the Night… should it get it’s own section in the Idolm@ster entry? … I already feel like that article is too long and I kind of want to trim parts out. Though, I figure it is noteworthy to mention that Agent of the Night was in the Nico Nico Medley song.
I’m in the green box, but really close to the middle. I haven’t written anything politically charged yet, but how I feel is that I’m here to research the phenomena and not project my own political views. I believe most people here are the same.
Really? I thought the game was about Tear’s Melons. ==; … Guess the internet lied to me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfOpGVMULZ0 I’m not going to post the embed in case there’s accidental spoilers. That being said, I’ve heard many times that Abyss has one of the better story lines of the Tales games. Aside from not having voiced skits (was that fixed in the 3DS version?), I’ve heard good things about the localization too.
そんなばかな! I am looking forward to playing Tales of Graces F and later on Tales of Xillia.
I hear the term moon runes more than moon speak. I can try to search through archives for you though. Turn A Gundam is pretty old though… Then again, the series is pretty popular, so I might find something if I look in /m/ archives. I’ll check wikipedia for the air dates and see if that’ll help. Moon runes is kind of an old phrase though. Even now I don’t see it used much. And if it’s used, it’s probably used on /a/ more than anything… And the usage I know of for both is typically referring only to...
Though I’m not really a fan of dubbed anime. I’m all for the industry getting more exposure. I guess either way, I can watch series I want to support on Hulu…
I looked around a bit and I was surprised that there’s no entry for this. I actually don’t know much about this other than it’s popular. Wikipedia page on it This is typically how the meme is used. Goat tower is more or less portrayed as some kind of awesome utopia. On /a/ in particular, it’s even equivalent to becoming 2D or becoming a little girl.
I had a question- I looked around and I saw there was no entry for the “If you’re still a virgin when you’re 30, you become a wizard”. Apparently this came from Futaba where instead of wizard it’s actually “magician”? That’s about all I know about it’s origin, but it is a popular meme on Western internet. Do you happen to know anything about the origin of this? Or does this more apply as a popular internet myth rather than a meme? An anime from last fall season poked fun at it (main character picked the...
Sounds good! I’ll make a stub article for Itasha and then expand on it when I have time.
About Lucky Star, back when the show was popular, it did have kind of a sizable fanbase. From what I remember… when I went to Osaka in 2009 to visit a friend, it was still really popular (at that time the Haruhi fanbase was dying out). The only memetic thing I remember was Buta Kagami. Which I think? started out as a meme, but eventually gained official merchandise. From the impression I gathered, Kagami ended up being the most popular character in Japan (Western audiences preferred Konata). She even...
I’ve been thinking about this for a while and wondering if it’s notable enough to create a subculture entry for it. It certainly has a large enough cult following. As far as memes, I’m only familiar with some of them such as Aigis’s “I NEED UR HALP”, Mitsuru’s MARIN KARIN, Burn your Bread, Fuuka’s voice, and the hiimdaisy comics. And of course there’s stuff like Bitches and Whores which already has an entry. And creating “Persona Eyes” (the cut in of the character when they summon their Persona) has been...
Maybe part of the article could also talk about the waifu/husbando subculture and stuff like 3DPD (3D Pig Disgusting). Or that could also be a separate topic. :3 Just an idea.
