Done it, although it is kinda messed up since i remembered now i made the profile in paint and the background is not transparent haha. But it would be really cool if it weren't by that, thanks for the info!

It’s really not so bad. I hardly have my shit together, but with enough passion and motivation, I was able do it. That’s all you have to have. It sounds like cheesy bullshit, but it’s true.

Yeah, they can be a little aggressive, but once again, if you’re pulling from 4chan, then that’s just kind of how it goes. Even with that said, I actually find them pretty easy to talk to for the most part. They’re honestly more chill than some people in other servers that I’ve been in. Yeah, I can’t think of anyone in my anime club that I dislike. Everyone is pretty cool and they’re easy to get along with. We’re all adults so it doesn’t have the added drama that my high school anime club had. I was never involved in any of it, but I certainly observed some of it.

Are we going to try the movie again tonight?
Honey_Flash Aug 3, 2019 1:42 PM
Yeah, I know I have to work on that. I should try and put myself out there a little more.

Hmm. Again, a poster with your contact info is the way to go, but it sounds like you may not be overly enthusiastic about starting a club. College is busy so I can understand why. I imagine you’re burnt out. I set out to start an anime club because I knew it was what I really wanted to do, so I think you should only go through the full process if you truly want the responsibility.

Yeah, given that they’re from 4chan, I kind of figured it was about edginess. Everyone is actually pretty cool though so far. They are a bit edgy, but I like smaller servers where I can have actual conversations with people. I’ve tried a few huge public anime servers, and they’re awful. More private servers are where it’s at. That group-watch thing sounds fun. What platform do you guys use to watch stuff together?
Honey_Flash Aug 3, 2019 4:40 AM
Lol, nah. Not what I was saying at all. My mom has actually stated that I sometimes unintentionally give off weird body language even when I don’t mean to, and I have trouble looking people in the eye. That could be part of it too.

Sure, it’s often how things go, but it sucks when I take my job very seriously and do really well, but the people who take their job less seriously and who haven’t even been there for that long receive more hours or get favorable treatment.

It can be hard when you’re socially awkward to put yourself out there, but I’ve found that I’m almost immediately more comfortable when I’m able to geek out with somebody else over the same thing. When I’m in front of my club, I just let go and passionately ramble about anime. I’ll talk to people in front of the room before waiting for club to start. So far, my silly ramblings haven’t stopped people from coming back. In fact, a few have said that that passion is what keeps them coming back. I can just let go when I’m among other fans. My coworkers will probably never know that side of me, and I’m not normally so confident or outgoing anywhere else, but when I’m at club, I’m my true self. If you’re at all like that, you should be fine, though everybody is different.

Oh, how are they wack? Doesn’t surprise me at all. If you’re pulling members from 4chan, you’re going to get a few “weirdos”, for lack of a better term.
Honey_Flash Aug 2, 2019 2:13 PM
I haven’t seen KLK yet either tbh. I will at some point. These past few weeks, I’ve been reading more manga.

Did I give off the impression that I get into fights with my coworkers? I don’t do that lol. I tend to avoid conflict. Now, I’m not a complete doormat. There are times where I’ll stand up for myself, but I’m a person who likes to keep the peace because I feel like that’s how to get things done with little trouble. I haven’t really befriended any of my coworkers either. I just haven’t had a lot of time for longer conversations and since a lot of people already know each other (a lot of them go to the same school), they’re already good friends so sometimes I feel I get drowned out by everybody else in the conversation. In fact, when I talk, I’m cut off on the regular and they often ignore me in favor of talking to someone they already know from school. I don’t think they even really mean to—they just do. I feel like saying this makes me sound like there must be something wrong with me, but I really don’t think I’ve said anything super annoying or done something wrong. I just don’t think I fit in, so it’s hard.

The situation sounds sketchy, but I don’t think it’s uncommon. Some new people who come in may not already be known by the people there, but if they can fit in, then they’re preferred. Having people skills is very important and if you can make people like you and blend in as a favored member of the team, and furthermore, as a friend, then you are likely to be in the situation that girl is in. Not only do all of the shift leaders like her, but she’s their friend, so none of them really wanted to report what she did. This becomes especially difficult when they’re in high school and when they see each other every day at school. What if workplace relations impact their relationship outside of work? Of course this could happen to anybody who works with their friend, even adults, but something like this would be especially worrying to high-schoolers. I’m not in high school, and though I’m friendly and cooperative, they see me as being “quiet” and awkward. I’m not in their social circle.

Well, maybe you can find another place to meet. It would be cool to see you go through with it. You’ll want to ask if that’s okay though. I doubt they’ll just let you put up a poster without approving it. Yes, I know what 4chan is. I’ve wasted too much time online in my life to not know what that is. How many members do you have?
Honey_Flash Aug 2, 2019 10:25 AM
Oh, it’s an abbreviation for “Kill La Kill”. Sorry, I got lazy and I’ve seen people abbreviate it that way. It does have a lot of releases, and it’s also a Go Nagai title.

Yeah, I think that’s a part of it as well.

Yup! Exactly. It’s very much based on whose closest with who where I am. There are people there who don’t take their job overly seriously and who haven’t been there for very long, but they’re friends with the other high school aged coworkers. I’m friendly, help others out, and since we are a team, I’m very cooperative, but I’m also not exactly buddy-buddy with my coworkers either. We aren’t friends outside do the job, which a lot of them are. There’s some people I’ve seen who don’t take their job very seriously (some who call out fake-sick on Fathers’ Day, one of the busiest days for us, only so they could go to a sleepover. Mind you, she did this after somebody who was scheduled to work all week quit without notice, so we were screwed form the get-go), and they still get a good word in from the shift leaders because they’re friends. I would be lying if I said it didn’t feel unfair.

It is a part of the club’s roster, yes. I went through the whole formal club creation process. If we weren’t an official club, we wouldn’t have been able to receive funding for the convention trip. Maybe that’s the case for your college, but there’s quite a few non-academic clubs at my college. Most are going to be academic though, so that doesn’t mean they won’t allow you to start an anime club, especially if you’re able to establish that there’s an interest. I think that you should approach whoever handle student activities at your college (I’m sure that info is online), and talk to them about where to get started. They might encourage you to make posters with your contact information and to keep or record of potential members. There’s probably a variety of other forms you’ll have to fill out too, though that’s just my experience. Go for it though! Oh, tell me about your Discord server.

Yeah, it’s been around since I was in middle school.
Honey_Flash Aug 1, 2019 8:05 PM
It was. Anno’s favorite anime is the 1973 Cutie Honey series. The first episode was also written by Imaishi of Gurren Lagann, KLK, and Panty and Stocking fame (among other notable works). Also, np.

It could be that. I think it could also be that they sense my anxiety, which makes the conversation uneasy and unenjoyable.

I do have a job, yes. I work at an ice cream shop. Work is actually the place I feel most out of place right now, I guess. That’s really where I was talking about when I mentioned that I feel others think I’m stupid. I work with a bunch of high schoolers, and though they’re not a whole lot younger than me, I have a really hard time connecting with them. I just don’t really fit in.

I guarantee you that there are more anime fans than you think there are at your college. I actually first gathered interest by putting up posters with contact information. Lots of people noticed the poster and contacted me with their info. Most of these people have joined my anime club Discord server and that’s how I get in touch with them and notify them about upcoming events and meetings. It was actually my ex’s suggestion that we create a Discord server. We actually met when he contacted me by email asking about the club and telling me that he had 3 clubs that he ran. I was having a lot of trouble with the club creation process and I found it to be very overwhelming, so I asked if he was free to meet up so that he could help me and give me advice on how to go about it. We met and he was such a huge help. We talked for hours and really hit it off. He handled pretty much all of the work with Discord at the time because I was totally new to the platform and had no clue what I was doing. I was so lost. He ended up becoming the VP for the semester (it was his last semester of college and it was my first. He was 22 and I was 18). There’s a part of me that wants to just brush off what he did because I’m still a little bitter over how things ended with us, but I can’t in good conscience not give credit where credit is due. He was a tremendous help. There was a very formal process to creating a club and it was pretty crazy to see how different it was from high school. I have over 30 members on the Discord server. However, the number that actually shows up to club depends. We have an average of about 8-10 that show up every meeting. On a good day, we might have 12. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t really, REALLY proud of my club.

Wow. What the fuck? That turned out so long. I’m sorry, man.

What’s funny is that the app commonly had downloaded videos from animeultima. I remember that watermark. I’ve never visited the site myself. Thanks for the suggestion!

I made a donation awhile back. Sentai’s GoFundMe is going to close after tonight, I believe. I’m very glad they made well over their goal.

Honey_Flash Jul 31, 2019 7:23 AM
Well, I originally was starting in order by year (though I ended up not following order in the end, especially since they’re all pretty standalone and don’t have much of connection, though Shin Cutie Honey can be seen as a continuation of the original set farther in the future), so I watched the 70s anime first. Now, I love the 70s version, but I’m always hesitant to recommend it to people because many can’t stand watching anime that are that old. If I could recommend any to a beginner, it would be Shin Cutie Honey and Re:Cutie Honey. They’re both short, well-animated, and lots of fun! They’re perfect for those who are just starting out with Honey.

Yeah, it’s an anxiety thing for me. Sometimes, I’ll just start stuttering or I’ll say something that really gives off the feeling that I lack confidence (which I do). I feel like these are things that give others a poor perception of me. However, this could also just be me projecting my poor self-perception onto others, so I try to be mindful of that.

I don’t cosplay or go to cons often anymore. It’s just so expensive. I did actually go to a convention back in the winter with my college anime club that I run (and that I created with the help of my ex boyfriend, but we don’t talk about him). With the help of our club sponsor and the student activivities coordinator, I organized a convention trip for the club members. It was so much fun! It was a lot of work, but so, so worth it! I went and cosplayed as Asuka in her yellow sundress. Not very appropriate for the winter, I know, but it was a cosplay that I had wanted to do for a long time.

Yeah, K-ON! Is great. I still need to check out Violet Evergarden myself. Back in middle school and early high school, I used to have an app where you could download anime to your phone. I miss that app.

Aw. It’s so sad. I understand why they would want to make it a memorial. The people who died at the hands of some crazy asshole deserve it.

My username is taken from Go Nagai’s classic magical girl series, Cutie Honey. Honey Kisragi (also known as the sexy superheroine “Cutie Honey” when transformed) always shouts “Honey Flash” before she transforms. This is the case for pretty much every Honey installment. It’s a staple for the series. Though Cutie Honey is classically known for being the first shonen magical girl series, there was a shoujo anime that was created after the booming success of Sailor Moon in the late 90s. This version was called “Cutie Honey Flash”, sometimes just called “Cutie Honey F”. The anime’s name is obviously a take on her transformation call. My name acts a play on both the transformation call and the late 90s shoujo anime. If you look in my favorites, you’ll actually see Cutie Honey F. Honey is also in my favorite characters list. Honey is badass, unashamed to be sexy, and, best of all, unapologetically herself! There’s a lot to love about her.

Yeah, I kind of relate to Miyuki in a way. I’m not a genius like her, but I’m certainly not stupid either. However, I can be a huge ditz and a klutz. I sometimes unintentionally feel like I give off this “clueless ditz” vibe when that couldn’t be farther from who I am. My ditziness is definitely there, but it’s only a small part of me and I feel as though some people have the impression that I’m always like that. Some of it also comes from awkwardness and being nervous around people, so I act stupid without really meaning to. Oh well. I kind of got off track, but I just mean to say it’s nice to see a character whose genuinely smart but also occasionally does ditzy and thoughtless things. It’s not like it’s a big deal, but I remember always identifying with that.

I wore a wig. Miyuki honestly has super long hair. I had to get a pretty long wig for it. I had this girl from school, who was actually really good at cosplaying, cut and style the bangs for me.

It’s absolutely heartbreaking. Have you seen K-ON? It’s another KyoAni slice of life show that definitely appealed to fans of Lucky Star. The first season only came out a year after Lucky Star and I actually prefer it. It’s a nice, relaxing, heartwarming show. If you like Lucky Star, I think you would love K-ON! I have fond memories of both K-ON! And Lucky Star from when I was about 12. I found pictures of K-ON! online when I was about 12 and I started collecting them. I always showed my mom the pictures because I thought they were cute. When I was 13, I found the first season of K-ON! at Best Buy and begged my mom to buy it for me (that was incredibly spoiled of me, I know). She did buy it for me, and I still have that DVD now. I watched it so many times. I still need to finish the second season of K-ON, and especially need to watch more KyoAni shows too after what happened. I actually went to see the newest Hibike! movie with friends recently and the KyoAni fire happened only a few days later. It was shocking to think about how I was just watching one of their movies at the theater just the other day. It really is sad.
Honey_Flash Jul 23, 2019 9:04 PM
Understandable. That’s an interesting username origin story! Good luck with your studying!
Honey_Flash Jul 23, 2019 8:40 PM
P.S. why did you change your username? Just curious.
Honey_Flash Jul 23, 2019 8:34 PM
Yeah, it’s one of my least favorite parts of most official subs. It’s sad when I see free fansubs do stuff like that better.

Oh, I LOVED Lucky Star when I was 12. When I was 14, I cosplayed Miyuki at a convention. I first discovered Lucky Star when seeing an anime DVD for it at Best Buy when I was maybe about 10. I remember thinking about how cute it looked, and I would save so many wallpapers of it on my laptop and change it every other day just for fun. When I was 12, I found all of the dubbed episodes on youTube for free. I would rewatch some of the episodes in the coming years because I just loved it so much. I feel that the food talk at the beginning is about as annoying that Lucky Star gets. It definitely isn’t for everyone. Many find it “comfy” (like you said) and relatable, but others find it plain boring and pointless. I see the 10-minute food talk in the first episode as a good benchmark for how much you’ll be able to tolerate Lucky Star. I know some people who can’t stand it, but I’ve always loved it.

I feel that it’s especially good to appreciate Lucky Star now because of the recent tragedy concerning KyoAni. It’s incredibly sad. They created so many shows that many of us know and love, and there were people who poured their hearts and souls into these shows. It’s heartbreaking to think that many are injured and that some are dead. I actually have a link in my profile to the Sentai Filmworks GoFundMe for KyoAni. You’re probably already aware of it, and you may have already donated, but it’s there in case you want to contribute. Any little bit helps.
Honey_Flash Jul 23, 2019 7:58 PM
What’s you issue with official subs? I personally don’t like how wonky they look when two characters are talking at once. It’s lije they don’t even really try.
