    To anyone who has made something or attempted to make something, you know this feeling too well. "Can I really do this? Who am I kidding? I don't know what I'm doing." I dabble in a lot of things. From web development, video editing, animation, web comics, making games, photography etc. But I never called myself a web developer, video editor, animator, artist, game developer, photographer. Because I never really felt I was one. I thought since I was a beginner and not as good as others, I shouldn't call myself a (insert title here). As it would be insulting to the REAL (insert title here). No matter what my accomplishments were, no matter how much experience I got, I was just a wannabe, a fake, an impostor. But then I realized.... you are what you do. Some people talk the talk and some walk the walk. Some think they are cool while some ARE cool. If you made a website, you are a web developer. If you made a web comic, you are an artist. If you took a photo, you are a photographer and so on. Many if not all veteran creatives went through this stage. Where they doubted themselves. But chose to keep going. And in the end, the feeling of being a wannabe disappeared. They became a real legitimate (insert title here). Have you ever felt impostor syndrome? How did you overcome it?

    Well, really the PM system is in place for single-point-to-point interaction of users for matters they'd rather keep out of the public eye. It's akin to a whisper feature on a chat. It's also a place for rampant TOS violation. That's generally why people keep to the open forums. Not to mention, if you're more active on the site, a chat option does become available. Just throwing that out there.

    I got this last week. If you're a Youjo Senki fan, you'll recognize it as the weapon Mary uses / and the rest of the United States. I won't talk about why that's absolute blasphemy and wrong. If you're more history minded you'll know it is in fact an M1 Garand - a Springfield model. This one was produced in the Spring of 1942, with a barrel date from 1944. All but the trigger group are Springfield parts. I won a lottery in this gambit, $650 for it, turns out it's well over $2,000 in value.

    I'm CatSoul, as I've been referred to on MAL for years. (Some who know me on Discord have also referred to me as "Bananya".) My taste is perhaps a little unusual not just because of the abundance of furry anime in my favorites, but my main goal when searching for anime is just looking for something entertaining. I was really active on forums in elementary/middle school, but fell out of it as a lot of the ones I was on died (and the majority of the Internet went from a lot of small forums to a couple of big places). I also somehow got 6,000+ posts on the MAL forums, the majority of which I cannot remember. However, I do think that forums in general deserve more love and hope to spend a lot of time on here. Nice to meet you all!

    that's actually the reason i deemed myself the title of "lame artist" it's because, i felt unworthy, bad at what i did, and felt like i could never improve besides, i never studied anything in the art-field, (sure, i look at referrences, but i dont look up tutorials, i used too, but now a days i dont TuT anymore), almost all my life has been thrown on playing games, surfing the net, and as of the recent year, just studying -- but i did notice, i got better at drawing, comparing it to my old drawings (i did a 2 year-gap difference on my first OC), the style, the lines, it all feels different from when i started but yea, long short, i can safely ditch the "lame artist" title, couse i feel like a worthy artist but i wont, because its a memento of what i used to be

    Not too many. Around the time I started watching anime it was a rarity to find others that knew what it was in my area. It was difficult to find anyone that had seen anime that predated shows like Sailor Moon or DBZ. I was stuck discussing DBZ and Pokemon most of the times. Later, when we grew apart beyond school, I probably had one or two people at work that talked about anime. I have siblings but they never really got into it. Funny enough, when my mother was recovering from surgery at my place, she popped in a few Studio Ghibli films and was hooked. Kiki's Delivery Service, Howl's Moving Castle and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind are her favorites. Recently she saw A Silent Voice and Carole & Tuesday.

    Hi there, Nekora! (^・x・^) Enjoy your time here. There's lots of topics and creative areas to engage in, if you don't see something in discussion; you can create it! ฅ(^・ω・^ฅ) Hope your weekend was good, so wonderful to see new people join. If you need anything just ask. Everyone here is super helpful and insightful. I do need to catch up with Attack on Titan but it's been a ride of emotions thus far, so the end of it will have such an effect for sure! Welcome to the Anime Forums!

    OMG I totally got sucked into this awesome comic on Tappytoon. I don't usually read to many action adventure types. I mean i do watch them in anime. But i don't read to many. It's called Solo Leveling. It's so sic. Just keeps getting interesting. If you can find somewhere read it!!! I can't give anything away it's to badass too.

    Subs, always. Or nothing. I’m not conversational but I understand spoken Japanese well enough that I often don’t even need the subtitles.

    I prefer to choose sub tittle....because original voice not change

    I normally watch subs, but my “when mom is around anime’s” include the dubbed version of Naruto. Apparently she read it has milder language. So, sometimes I watch dubs.
  31. 2 points
    i could watch either. but i do watch sub more. i think sometimes it just depends on what your use to hearing with that certain anime. Because sometimes i will watch one with dub and then sub and i may like the dub more in that certain anime.

    Goblin Slayer and Overlord were good. ToG is on my list. (I binge things when they're done. Eventually. Hopefully... so much anime, so little time.) OP and Radiant I lost interest in pretty quickly. However, if you liked them then you might want to try Black Clover.

    I don't think that, as a creator, staying completely away from the bad stuff is a good idea. If nothing else you're requiring someone else to decide for you what is "good" or "bad" so that you never have to bother with the latter. (If only it were that simple. ) I also believe it is very rare that something is entirely bad, with no redeeming features whatsoever. True there's the time issue. You simply can't evaluate everything personally. You certainly don't want to emulate the bad parts in your own material however, even inadvertently due to ignorance. Learning a lesson from other peoples' bad examples is actually a valuable skill, professionally speaking. The trick of course is to recognize what makes something "good" or "bad" and then deliberately integrating the "good" parts into your own material while rejecting and avoiding the "bad". And yes, the subjective definitions of "good" and "bad" make it all that much harder.

    Yes, I have felt imposter syndrome. Sometimes I look around at the people I work with and think, "damn.. how did I manage to get in with this crowd?!" People call on me for answers that I don't know. Often I get thrown in at the deep end and it is sink-or-swim time. I can identify with people like Jen and Sorata in S1 of "Pet Girl". There always seems to be another problem or deadline that people expect me to be able to deal with, and if the bosses think things are going too smooth they up the ante. (Seriously. The former chief boss at work - a guy who is fluent in half a dozen different languages, has 4 masters degrees in physics and engineering, an MBA, a doctorate in electrical sciences from CalTech, is currently a professor at CalTech, and who basically invented synthetic-aperture radar, at least as it is used in remote-sensing applications - was definitely a Rooseveltian at heart. He once said at an all-hands meeting, "If things aren't breaking then maybe we're not pushing the envelope hard enough".) I don't think you can overcome it, in the sense of getting to a point where you can relax. At least I haven't found out how to do that myself. I deal with it, if you can call it that, by quickly learning what I don't know and answering as if I'd known all along. Sometimes I think my only true skill is Google-fu. (Though sometimes all I find is other people asking the same questions. ) It is stressful sometimes, but it also has its moments of awesome.
