What the hell is people's deal with happy endings in fiction? Why do people insist on having happy endings with everything? For some reason, people want to see characters go through all kinds of suffering during the story, yet by the end they want all of the characters to be happy, regardless of whether it makes sense or not.

Am I just weird that I want whatever ending fits the story best even if it's not a happy end for the characters?

When a character struggles but reaches a happy ending, it's uplifting. When they don't, it's not uplifting. Pretty simple.

I don't know what anime you're talking about (or care) but a happy ending does usually leave a better taste in your mouth.
>> No.48306  
I prefer happy endings but if they don't fit with the story or require a massive asspull then yeah, bring on the despair.

Oh but I thought Russia invaded to protect the Jews...
Or maybe they were fighting the Jews? Pic related is the Deputy FM of Russia standing in front of a sign that says "Nothing worse than Jewish Fascism". Maybe the Jews were behind the Nazis?
It's all so complicated. Anyway, the point is, international law sanctioned the invasion, because if you lose influence in a country, you get to invade it. And even if you can't, the US has fluoride in its water and 9/11 was a false flag, so there.

The Bunbunmaru community has changed quite a lot since Bunbunmaru first started, so I was wondering what kind of people are on /bun/ nowadays. So, time for a shitty thread!

1. What's your age?
2. What's your occupation? (College student? Office worker? NEET?)
3. How did you get here? (Is almost everyone here still from /jp/?)
4. How often do you play games?
5. How often do you watch anime?
6. How often do you read manga?
7. How often do you read visual novels?
8. What do you think of the Touhou franchise?
9. Do you like loli?
10. Are you a pedophile?
11. What do you think of 'normalfags'?
12. What do you think of 3D girls?

>French Man Gets 1-Year Suspended Sentence for 'Manga Pornography' (Updated)

A 25-year-old engineer in Puy-en-Velay, France was sentenced on Tuesday to one year in prison, as well as court-ordered therapy, by a three-judge tribunal for possession and distribution of images of child pornography. According to the court, he had collected "pornographic" Japanese manga featuring sexually abused female characters, six to eight years old, on his computer and shared the manga on the Internet.

The authorities had interrogated him about an Internet forum post in which he wrote, "We're recruiting female members, 12 years old or younger." The man asserted that the post was a joke, and his lawyer added that the defendant is a social recluse.

One of the judges asked the suspect, "When you see a girl six to eight years old being raped, don't you think there's something wrong?" He responded, "If you had read my psychiatric report, I don't imagine myself in the place of the rapist, but rather in the girl's." The judge replied back, "You're very intelligent. The doctor only reported what you told him. Me, I don't believe a word of what you are saying."

The convicted man has been barred from any activity that has regular contact with minors and will be registered on the national sexual offenders' list.

loli is supposed to be illegal here too but I've never heard about anyone getting in trouble for it.
I also downloaded and fapped to it without proxies for years and nothing ever happened.
Hopefully the police are doing something more useful like hunting down those pesky Albanians

What's the last movie you watched?

I just saw The Life Before Her Eyes. Overall it was boring, but the ending just blew me away. It was so twisted and unexpected. Basically, at the beginning of the movie, two girls are involved in a shooting incident at school. Then we are fast forwarded into the future, and one of surviving girls is leading a normal life, has a husband, a daughter, but she is constantly reminded of the shooting. Later it turns out that her husband isn't really her husband, and her daughter doesn't exist, and at the end we find out that the whole movie was just something the young girl was imagining right before she got killed during the shooting incident.
