Atarashii Prelude

3 Years Get!

Or I would like to call it my yearly apology to my senior and co-founder :oops: Folks, people say that I am funny and I believe them, because the quality of the content in this blog is laughable at best. That said, I would not have wanted it any other way. It is no secret that I pride myself in my 4chan origins, a fact that is reflected in almost all, if not every post that I have made thus far. 431 and counting. With it comes all the memetic shenanigans that can be overbearing at times. You would not believe the number of people I have irked with my imageboard mentality, where I basically made a nuisance of myself by doing things such as spouting unfunny one-liners to blatant trolling. The sad part is that even though I am well aware of it, I just cannot bring myself to stop.

My Bahasa Malaysia language teacher in secondary school put it best when she described my writings to be syok sendiri, a term used to define someone who derives pleasure from an act only he or she is able to. In other words, I write simply to pleasure myself. Kind of like masturbating, if you will. However, I personally feel that it is this seemingly conceited attitude that has kept me afloat in the blogosphere, where a good number of my peers who started roughly around the same time as me have burnt out and thrown in the towel. I also think that this approach has aided my attempts at differentiation, if only because not many have considered solely on churning out gimmicky posts. Above all else, I find this to be enjoyable, and as someone who gets bored almost too easily, that is an accomplishment on its own.

Of course, while I have made myself sound self sufficient, the fact of the matter is that I consider myself to be very fortunate, as I have been able to get away with the things that the average anime blogger would not consider or might think twice about actually pulling off. All the more to be thankful, I say, as too often have I noticed others struggling to find their niche, while I am blessed with the luxury of doing whatever I please. Keeping that in mind, I do give it my best to garner your attention, with what limited resources I have in terms of writing ability, bolstered only with cheap lulz and Photoshop. If you were entertained even for the slightest bit, then I can give myself a pat on the back and consider my work done.

If you are reading this as a frequent visitor, you cannot begin to fathom my gratitude towards all of you for being so accomodating and supportive in spite of my selfishness. My thanks also to other bloggers for allowing me to feel at home and acknowledging me with your pingbacks, blogroll additions and comments. Finally, as for my team of contributors, well, fuck them. They all abandoned me :evil:

  1. What? My blog is older than yours?

    Shingratulations on being old. Too bad your blog will never get to be onii-chan to mine.

  2. Congratulations. Shenanigans and lulz follow.

  3. Congrats on 3 pedo-tastic years Shin. It’s a small miracle you’re still free and writing lol.

  4. Wow three years already? Time flies.

    Here’s to many more years of masturbatory writing and photoshop lulz! :wink:

  5. Never stop poasting!

  6. Congrats. Don’t stop posting. In fact, post more often.

  7. I do not forgive your selfishness.

    No, just kidding. Nice job on three years surviving.

    I think that’s exactly how I’ve survived this long. The trick is not to care about readership or comment count… it’s about writing what you want to write!

  9. Wow 3 years! nice job Shin, I do enjoy reading your posts always find them to crack me up at the end ;) so good work!

  10. That’s a good run in a fun-filled year that saw the likes of an AWESOME excursion with the waifu and Waterbottlegate (or was that last year?). No matter, as I’ve derived a large amount of amusement value from reading this and here’s a toast to another great year!

  11. Been fun :) rai nen mo yoroshiku!

  12. This post feels more thesaurus-raped than a Stephanie Meyer novel.

  13. Your wit is what keeps me coming; please keep on masturbating, bro!

    Besides, the most important thing in a blog is to enjoy it and write whatever the hell you feel like. People who don’t like it can choose the other over 9000 anime blogs out there.

  14. Congratulations Shin, for 3 years! It’s good to have discovered a brethren (I’m a malay too) who is the one and only editor of this ever popular site, atalude! As for the team of contributors, yeah, they do not deserve the credits given to this site, because your funny posts are the only things that keep me on this site.

    Semoga awak syok sediri! =D

  15. Frequent visitor first time poster, i’ve been frequenting kurogane and your blogs for 2 years now, I check them both daily. While i visit kurogane mostly for the actual anime blogging I visit your blog for humor reasons and because its great to see someone else with extremely similar interests ranging from specific waifu’s to what i find enjoying. Keep up the great work, the only quirk i’d have to say is that you dont post enough, but twitter/twitpic sorta makes up for that.

  16. 3 years of running away from the cops :oops:

  17. Keep up the indulgence in your blog and twitter! You’re the only reason why I still open that twitpic site now :wink:

  18. Grats. But come now Shin, you’re not one to reflect and thank the party. Just keep leeroying those popo and child protection laws.

  19. lol Shin lol.

    Congrats. :kiss:

  20. Congrats on your 3rd anniversary Shin!

    Show ▼

  21. Outlasted me by far. Here’s to many more years of depraved, debauched, underaged, penis-pantsu’d shoppery.

  22. Blog how you want and blog what you like. If you love what you’re doing, we’ll love it too. ^ ^

    Congratulations! And keep the laughs coming.

  23. wow, three years already? omedetou!

  24. Grats on a threesome of years!

  25. Congratz and continue! your doing great! =D
    feels good man~

  26. The double meanings and unintended sexual innuendos are the greatest wonders of Bahasa Malaysia. Also, I can’t help but wonder why Kinokuniya would bother opening a branch in Malaysia where its Japanese sections are frequented largely by weaboos, basement dwellers and all sorts of unmarried manchildren.

    Anyway, yeah, something about congratulations. I-it’s not like I-I’m trying to troll with an off-topic discussion or anything.

  27. as ive said and will say again, there is no wrong in masturbation :wink:

    oh and lol at ur contributors wwwwwwww

  28. Congrats Shin! Once again you have avoided the authorities this year

  29. Sorry I’m late! Congrats on the 3 years! :kiss: Man come to think about it I’ve been blogging for 4 years e_e geez man time flies.

  30. :wink: congrats man ^^ :wink:

  31. continue to be so entertaining :D
