The last group did stop, the last couple or so chapters were done by a single person who just wanted to share the series. No new group seems to have shown interest in picking it up.
Nothing beats the first episode of Kotora-san.
I even shed a manly tear after what her mother said to her on her face. Too bad the only good episode on the entire series was the first one.
This tag is great.
DID SOMEONE SAY BULLYING?
BECAUSE I THINK I HEARD SOMEONE SAY BULLYING
>tfw dollbitch steals the souls you were cultivating all year by making their entire bus go off a cliff
NO, THIS IS BULLYING
Are you gonna kill off people for banter too? Get some thicker skin ya cunt. If someone beats you, just beat them back. If you can't beat them, train to be able to beat them, if they bring in a lot more people or weapons, then this is more than just bullying and authorities exist for this shit.
Founding fathers here. If we followed your words America wouldn't exist right now.
Pretty sure the MSM would side with the victims and laugh at the bullies.
Yes because I'm sure political struggles and fights between nations can be equated with high school bullying.
Why do you even pretend that the founding fathers principles are still worth shit?
Remember "He who trades his freedom for safety deserves neither"? Remember how it flied out of the window after 9/11 ?
Over 200 years and it is the leading super power in the world and is now stopping other nations from bullying each other.
Hitler here. I like your thinking. If only those damn allied victims didn't fight back.
It doesn't matter when the concept appeared and what people use it for. I don't want cowboys killing people all over the place because they "offensed them" in a way or another. And unless you're a fucktard, you think the same.
>Hitler here. I like your thinking. If only those damn allied victims didn't fight back.
Did you even read his post?
>Yes because I'm sure political struggles and fights between nations can be equated with high school bullying.
This thread needs more physical violence.
Someone steals your lunch money and scribbles down on your desk.
Someone kills your citizens, family and friends.
Do you understand now why killing is more appropriate for the second situation, but not so much for the first one?
Am I in middle school? Why do these concepts get so hard through you? Are you one of those feminists who say that they've been raped as long as they THINK they've been mentally dominated and raped by the man?
Being the person who was "picked on" through my life, I can honestly say, those like me need to take some classes in psychology, most of the "bullying" is in your head, or started by your own actions. (Mainly by assuming everyone elses actions are negative, responding negatively to them accordingly, and in turn, making enemies.)
Couldn't keep watching the show, that scene, and the rest of it's "Bullying" is so 2-dimensional and unrealistic, it's as if they never actually interacted with human beings before, or have some sort of social anxiety, where they always assume the worst in everyone.
I can work with that.
Because Ryukishi writes better about bullying than anything else
>tfw no 2d qt 3.14 to step on my face and yell that I am a little bitch while forcing me lick her soil while I get kicked in the balls
Why even life?~
Abusive yuri is great. I didn't even know I wanted this before.
Do you think the only abuse is physical? Mental bullying is just as bad if not worse, because it's something you can't actually stop due to how modern society is thanks to hippie ideals like "walk away" or just say "no". Like that would ever work.
>most of the "bullying" is in your head, or started by your own actions.
GUIZ THIS BULLY IS MAKING FUN OF ME AND DESTROYING MY THINGS. HE CLEARLY LOVES ME. srly?
>Teacher witnesses it and doesn't do jackshit
First of all, you are assuming things are as black and white as "good guys vs bad guys" which isnt very realistic.
Second of all, the most "Horrendous" people on earth, are more often than not kids/teenagers, because they still have a lot of maturing to do. (As most people develop differently, and don't become very rational till mid 20s to the early 30s, after the frontal lob cortex fully develops.)
There are some sociopaths that do exist, but in MOST cases of bullying, it's usually just a slight annoyance that some kid calls him/her the wrong name, and it escalates into them thinking the "bully" deserves to die, because good needs to overcome evil.
If you allow it ion what YOU assume to be the right scenario, others will follow in what THEY think is right. (More often than not, they will have a twisted sense of right/wrong.)
What sorta twisted strawman is that?
As a side note, next time you feel you're being bullied, try to actually interact with the person as IF THEY MIGHT BE HUMAN, and you'd be surprised how easily they are willing to befriend you 99% of the time.
Stop being a whiney bitch, and you wouldnt make so many enemies.
>Because Ryukishi writes better about bullying than anything else
He really does. It's so great.
Both are at fault, Don't try to play the victim card, where you get out of every responsibility.
If the fucking electrical socket electrocutes you every time you stick a fork in it, YES IT'S THE FUCKING ELECTRICAL SOCKETS FAULT.
IF you ignore the fact it requires BOTH the electricity AND you sticking a fork in it.
If you get pissy at someone, they get pissy back.
THATS HOW THE WORLD WORKS.
Right now, you're going to be upset, solely because I'm treating you negitively, but I wouldn't have, had you not decided to interpret my words with negativity.
In turn, Me attacking you, stems from you attacking me, which stems from your perception of how I intended my words.
Stop fucking up, and this wouldn't escalate.
Yea man I'm sure he's going to be all coolz and shit while he's beating my ass.
Do you realize how ridiculous you sound?
Life is black and white since humans are evil by nature. The only thing that changes how black are you.
PEACE AND LOVE ANON PEACE AND LOVE ANON I BET IF WE PUT FLOWERS ON THE BULLY'S DESK HE/SHE WILL COME TO STOP HIS/HER BULLYING JUST LIKE WHAT THE HIPPIES DID WITH SOLDIER'S GUNS DURING THEIR TIME!
>oh boy, cat I wonder ho-
>they kill yep
Yep, great. I just wish it wasn't so obvious or cliche.
I'd prefer some good ol' kidnapping and actuall treating the cat so well that it sees you as its master.
Then, as you fuck over the girl who bitched so hard for the cat, you give it back to her.
And the cat gives no shit about her because it loves you instead.
Now that would be a good paypack.
Fuck killing animals.
People should be above that sort of bullshit.
Not him but...
>If the fucking electrical socket electrocutes you every time you stick a fork in it, YES IT'S THE FUCKING ELECTRICAL SOCKETS FAULT.
It would be the parent's fault in this case for doing a shitter job of parenting, but modern society once again doesn't want to parent blaming for some reason.
Why is he "BEATING YOUR ASS"? Did you fucking mouth off to him, like you're doing here? cuz I'd bet that would have spurred it on.
Maybe learn how to be a decent human being, before you try to be a shit head and claim its everyone else who started it.
And NO, there is no such thing as good or evil, they are merely interpretations of YOU.
As long as people continue to think there is evil, they will continue to try and justify their actions.
>Yea man I'm sure he's going to be all coolz and shit while he's beating my ass.
Again, he never said that. Defend yourself. If someone is beating you up, I'm sure you can find a way to prove it or to beat up the fuckers. You can threaten them to cut them or something too, they'd probably believe it since they'd see you as a pitiable guy who has nothing to lose.
Or just grab a fucking chair to fight back. Stop complaining and react.
The problem with parent blaming, is that it's become a 1 excuse fits all.
Yes it happens, but MOST of the time, it doesn't.
An example would be WoW, where everyone is told to go for the same goal (quest)
The parents say "behave, be good"
The quests say, kill X mobs in this location.
But sadly, people arn't all the same, as in WoW's classes.
One class has an advantage at this quest, while another does not.
When someone fails, it's "Blame the parent, not the persons cons."
i'm being bullied so i'm clearly at fault.
as someone who often got shit for no reason all i learned is that people can be assholes.
did i ever take some sort of revenge or some shit? no, i just got over it. but it doesn't change the fact that i never did anything that warranted being made fun of or picked on.
thankfully it was mostly annoying and psychological shit rather than actual physical bullying.
>One class has an advantage at this quest, while another does not.
And that class happens to be better and more sought out in parties, and if they're not autistic manchildren who want to play SOLO HEALER builds, they will learn to use their resources properly to finish the quest in the same amount of time.
The best feeling in the world: Going back to your hometown to see all those grown-up bullies working at parking lots of convenience stores.
If you antagonize people and stop acting normal around them, they'll feel something is out of place and if they're stupid enough/teenagers/both, that'll probably end in bullying. Sure, the bully is the responsible in the first place, but sometimes the victim is actually helping him by being stupid.
Yes it is, that's the WHOLE point of what I'm saying.
It's what spurs on MOST PEOPLE'S assumption of what bullying is.
It's quite literal, and it's hard to see, until you actually TRY.
Let me give you an example, find some movie where the main character is picked on, and is the underdog.
He gets his revenge on the "bullies" and saves the day in some way.
Now ask the very people who bully you what they think of the movie or any movie with said concept, surprisingly enough they like those kinds of movies... and the main character...
Now ask yourself "why?"
and yet it fails in that the authorities fail to weed out the weak-minded bullies who can't function like normal humans and cope with individual differences or with personal problems and thus have to resort to violence and shaming to feel normal.
Do you seriously think the bully is going to give a serious answer or even bother to, or the fact that the victim won't even have the time to ask because the victim is too busy getting his/her ass beaten on by the bully?
So society knows it is the parents fault but won't do the parent blaming because of a pseudo peace?
Good job now the bully comes back even more determined to beat you up and his/her reign of terror continues.
If I'm being rude to people when they talk to me I don't mind them being rude to me in turn.
I do mind them taking/damaging my property or otherwise trying to interfere with whatever I do when I am not interacting with them.
Yes I do, because I've done it hundreds of times, once I realized it's possible to interact with another human being, when I imagine them as one, and not some 2d villain from a movie.
if you're failing to do it, ask yourself what you're doing wrong.
>Tfw bullied in high school
>tfw expelled from high school because I went to school with a knife and fucked the bullies up before hitting them with a chair and stepping on their bellies with my whole body weight
I sincerely doubt people would come back at you after you destroyed someone with a chair or something. If they keep coming with more people, it'll be easier to prove so authorities can react.
True. The problem is when you antagonize everyone, which I witnessed many times.
Most bullying doesn't involve serious physical harm. Just words, messing with your stuff, shoving you, that sort of thing. If you're getting beat up so badly that you can't even speak then that's a different problem, but that seems pretty rare and likely to have been escalated by something else.
>Life is black and white since humans are evil by nature. The only thing that changes how black are you.
You're contradicting yourself. What you're describing is a grey and gray (or black and gray) morality, not a black and white morality, which is basically manicheism.
Next chapter when
He's saying that bullies usually have the same sense of justice as the bullied, and just rationalize the bullying as "he deserves it because he's acting like a retard" or the like.
I was bullied in highschool until one day I snapped and hit back, the next day they ganged on me and beat the shit out of me.
After that they left me alone.
For anyone who's being bullied don't just sit there fight back.
And that's how my bully fetish was born.
>but is that kind of existence really better than death?
And my point is that it's not living, it's merely existing. You cannot compare it with "living and going home to your family after being tortured" because he's never going to "go home".
Also it's fictional torture on steroids.
I remember one bullied guy at my school that came with a knife for self-defense. I also remember after school seeing the bully beating the crap out of that poor idiot after he disarmed him.
So they're pissed, and they think you deserved being bullied, that you probably brought it up on yourself by acting like a dick to everyone, It's probably false, but who cares? It's what you're showing them right now. It's only natural they'd think that.
I wasn't a faggot, I just shanked the fucker and grabbed a chair while he was too distracted. After that it was a smooth ride.
We called him C-section after that.
If we're talking about bullying then I agree with you. I'm really just trying to say that there are some tortures that are worse than death (See Griffith pre-Godhand for a more realistic example)
when it's a group of people doing it constantly for years, yes it is.
i managed to not let it affect me or my life, but it was still completely uncalled for and unjustified. it's easy to say "just ignore it" but when it's you going through it every single fucking day it's very far from pleasant.
besides, it's not like i treated them like shit like that other anon thinks everyone who gets bulied does.
>most of your bullying was verbal
>you tried to choke your bullies with a belt you brought in school, beat them to death with a chair, threw a vase at them once, etc
Holy shit, what a psycho I was.
There's an awesome one where some gloomy chemistry genius is bullied by a generic Yankee guy and his girlfriend. He brews some ultimate ahprodesiac and gives it to the girl and she becomes addicted to and then falls in love with him.
Cannot for the life of me remember what it's called even though I reread it every other month. I think the artist is called chou or something.
This. Also people with slouches, who are socially ankward, get easily scared of the popular bully, and show it when they're afraid. It's basic predatory instinct to bully people who you can feel are afraid of you. And kids are just that, bundles of instinct.
>if you're failing to do it, ask yourself what you're doing wrong.
Victim blaming isn't a wise thing to be doing.
The victim did everything he could to avoid the bully and guess what? The bully still followed him around and caused misery to him and the kicker? The fucking state tried to charge the VICTIM for killing the fucking bully, and even more the family of the bully had the balls to blame the victim when their shitter son was the one causing the problems. How messed up is that?
Black is black. It still has black in it. There is no white in it.
>Bullies only target isolated people that are pretty sure can't fight back.
Not always correct.
But it's a helpful tactic.
>there are some tortures that are worse than death
Agreed, I bullied a girl I was always groping her breasts/groins.
Until one day she cracked.
You don't see why pissing someone off would make them think you deserve to be punished?
I mean, there are people in the thread right now who are arguing exactly that from the perspective of the bullies.
>Black is black. It still has black in it. There is no white in it.
Ah bullying. I remember when back when I was in Middle School in Americuh there was a pair of niglets that were basically the school bullies. Unrelated to anime by fuck it, Story Time.
> Be Me
> 6ft, White as Snow
> 8th Grade
> Two little Nigglets have the run of the school.
> Antagonize Teachers & Students. Beat up kids and walk.
> Ignore them mostly because their degenerates.
> One day they start messing with one my buddies in a Science Lab.
> Ask them to "Kindly Fuck off."
> Nigglets look at me standing in front of them.
> Good half foot on them.
> In nigglets mind: A Challenge.
> I sit back down and they leave my sight.
> Suddenly get shoved by bigger of the two nigglets.
> "You tryin' to start something whitey?" Nigglet sputters as he leans his face in front of mine as he keeps shoving me.
> Guess we're doing this.
> Shove fingers into his nose and slam the back of his head against the table 2-3 times.
> Other nigglet immediately bolts for teacher.
> Get send to Principal's office.
> MFW I get suspended 2 months for "hate crime", and I was gonna transfer out of the school anyway
>I don't see how you get from A to B and even less to C
"He's a total dick. I was just being nice to him. If he's like that with everyone, that's probably why he's being bullied, someone didn't like being treated like shit and responded. Hey he deserved it. Probably."
It's probably shallow, yet that's what most people will think. Especially if we're talking about teenagers.
>Bully victims are often loners, bullies are often groups of people.
That's the argument you could use too.
Seriously, bullying (I'm assuming we're talking about serious bullying here) leaves traces. It's not hard to find evidences.
I think we may be arguing semantics on what it means to live so I'll try to make this clear.
All I'm arguing is that there are some things worse than death, and that a state of continuous torture with no clear escape is one of them.
There is no human society. Humans are not social creatures, they are group creatures. We all live in different human groups, a society would mean we live in just one human group. There is no human society, but there are human groups.
Huge difference, buddy. If you kill your oppessors certain human groups might support you, while others will oppose you.
> that a state of continuous torture with no clear escape is one of them.
That is true. But that doesn't prove that torture generally is worse than death. Especially since it rarely ends up like that.
>you'll never be pestered by a girl sitting behind you
Why even live.
