Thread for creating /his/-chan to represent the board to all of 4chan.
Ignore all shitposts and feel free to contribute
Friendly reminder that -tan creation is not related to the board's topic of discussion, as per the sticky's guidelines.
This is a more meta subject and suited more on /qa/ or the 4chan house project and completely unrelated to /his/, moreso when the posters ITT are discussing anime and not history
Reminds me of this.
>wanting to look like a barbarian charading as a patrician
Nothing, the two people complaining, don't like fun things.
It makes perfect sense for /his/-chan to have a beard and scrolls. She's young but will try her best to learn from the scrolls and the beard is for authority, cause without it she's just a loli and everybody know that if you have a majestic beard, people will take you more seriously.
Why did you guys drop the sculpture old guy for a loli?
I was looking forward to the old, completely white, grumpy guy.
Ghosts are a way in which something that was, still is. The past is gone, it doesn't exist anymore and what we have of it are remnants, its effects and the memory of it. History is intangible but we can interact with it in a way and it affects us though we can't affect it directly.
I'm sorry, but I really don't like the idea of a /his/ character being a young girl.
The character should be ancient AND LOOK ancient. I say we make it look like a 90 years old man or woman in a gigantic library
>a lonely drawfag
If it makes you feel better I'm going to go to sleep after this post.
Not moe enough.
I'm actually being serious, moe is an important factor when creating a board-tan and few characters can pull moe while being headless.
Why do weeaboos ruin everything they touch?
I can already tell a small group of dedicated autists are going to force this, and hard.
Ghost don't die when they are killed so it's ok
I don't mind it looking like an anime (although I think it would be much cooler if it looked like a greek statue or a historical painting)
But a little girl will not do. I say we have a poll about this.
But people want an "old man" to be a Greek historian. Livy or Tacitus or anyone but a fucking Greek.
Also, I don't think we should already look at having two fucking characters, one will do for now.
I got it in a sale and thought it'd just be a dull Wolfenstein reboot since the last I played was Return, but it's actually surprisingly good.
The gameplay is decent, the music and atmosphere are excellent and it's a pretty fun story. I recommend it baka.
For the older loli & statue idea, it's because it accentuates the contrast between an old bearded philosopher and an easily impressionable child.
For the ghost? No reason, really, a normal girl would suffice. But it wouldn't make for good comics if she isn't autistic in some way if she's alone.
>blatantly moving the goalpost
Aren't you even a little embarrassed?
>Greeks and Romans were into teenagers not pre-teens.
>People actually want a loli-ghost bullshit mascot
How do you fucks ruin everything good you come into contact with? Maybe this is why moot never wanted /his/ in the first place.
This issue can be resolved very easily.
The old statue man is true /his/, the old man that knows everything and what we all aspire to be. He represents us in our truest desires.
The little girl is ignorant and stupid, she's also a ghost because the board was made in Halloween. Lastly, she's ignorant and racist because she's /pol/'s spirit haunting this board.
Two tans for one board. I suggest drawfags make art for both of them instead of just one :^)
That way, everyone gets pleased.
We're in /his/, the one thing we should know is to read patterns from the past.
The fact is the lolifags will get bored from this board and get out when another new board gets made and they're done shitposting and drawfagging us. You all know this to be true.
The old man will return when this board gets its own culture and the uncultured lolifags who clearly don't give a rat's ass about the rest of this board leave.
Do not worry, fellow /his/torians. When the dust settles, we will prevail. Just like history.
I think it should be a ghost, doesn't need to be a loli necessarily. Old man just seems unoriginal to me, and the first thing someone would think of. You need to explore more ideas, not just take the first thing that comes to mind and stick with it. I also like the idea of the time deity.
>What the hell is wrong with cute girls?
Circumstance and context, my friend, it's important.
The weeb tendency to shoehorn moe lolis where they don't belong is what offends people. Basically unilaterally making a board mascot that doesn't fit with the board theme at all because you require it to be moe is naturally going to piss some people off.
Anime is a shit art style and an insult to the human image.
Also Japan is shit.
What is this board about? Dead people? Paranormal?
Entire humanity is rolling in it's grave.
Ghost loli is dumb, snowflakey and it's obvious that most people who want her are shitposters.
In my opinion Old dude/sculpture + clueless loli is the best option, but that's because I love the possible tsukkomi-boke interactions between those two.
It's an anime girl in the style. I like the idea that it's a ghost because it can represent fallen empires and civlizations. I do not know why it upsets everyone so much. I have just seen people saying "ew anime" instead of why it upsets them. Are not most of the tans in that style? Why would ours be any different?
Why not steal Heinrich from KC?
You're free to report this thread and move on to one of the other 149 ones.
But Heinrich isn't always nazi.
There are people that thing this board's mascot shouldn't be in anime style like all the others, because they don't like anime.
Why are they on an anime website if they don't like anime?
Why would they want to try to exclude themselves from the rest of the website by not having an anime mascot?
Maybe they're not even from 4chan??
It's okay, people are really heated and most of it is shitposting right now. This happened in /aco/ tan creations too. Soon it will die down, and people can have intelligent discussions about what it should be. I personally like the idea of an old historian man, and his ghost companion that goes throughout history and does research for him, but I also think we should have one in particular representing the board. We need to decide who that one is :)
I don't personally like anime, but almost everything here is anime, you are right. Everyone has anime mascots, we should not try to be edgy and different.
>Are not most of the tans in that style
only these related to japanies culture, and while japan DO have interesting history when you ask people about history they will propobly talk about greeks and Alexander, Romans or English empire or some other western stories.
/x/ is not related to japenese culture, yet she is drawn that way. Also it isn't even that animeish, the ghost girt from before. She had dot eyes like the ones you post now, not sparkly anime ones.
Nah, I still like going on 4chan though. I don't mind seeing anime, I'm just saying I'm not an anime fan, but that doesn't change the culture of 4chan.
We have plenty of non anime board tans. /o/, /k/ and /biz/ are all older. On the other hand, we literally have a cute loli board already.
This board doesnt have a smidge of otaku, weeaboo themes or topic. It doesn't fit in this case. And hell, it's all about how other boards see us in the end, and they wont see a loli.
Peppered onto a board, not me watching it, u know?
But ghost girl isn't cute loli, or she doesn't have to be. She is just drawn in the anime style a bit, which is not a bad thing. A lot of people it sees are focusing on the loli aspect of it, instead of the cool part, which is that she can go through different civilizations and she embodies history, fallen empires, great people from great countries, e.tc.
I want a male ghost. Makes more sense for him to wear the outfits, especially if he's like 16 or something when he'd be considered an adult. Then he could have lived through any of these times periods, or at least pretend he did.
Oh for fuck sakes, go fuck yourself.
Forcing mascots is just pathetic. The board is not even up for two days, it has no real identity, and you're already trying to force a mascot representing traits the board does not have rather than letting it come naturally as part of a unified board culture. This is /v/'s Vivian tier levels of faggotry. "Let's make a meme, guys! We need a meme! Quick, let's make one."
Mass produced conveyor belt "culture" with absolutely no soul to it, that's what this is.
then draw one? it was discussed in the other thread that the ghost can be male or female and it can wear whatever it wants. it is the embodiment of all time past. the only drawfag so far has drawn it as loli but the ghost can be anything. it just needs ghost tail desu.
Correct, but as I originally said: the past is dead and a static thing.
Also consider this: should our tan be something that represents history (the product of historians) or the past (what actually happened)?
>A loli gh-gh-gh-ghost
Will she be voiced by Aoi Yuuki too?
You're right, but bitching about it doesn't get you anywhere. Wait for the shitposts to die out, and for the trolls to leave (on both sides they exist) and then in a week we can have good discussion.
Reminder that any discussions in the threads following the first one (in which true /his/torians decided on their tans and decided to wait a week before disputing about it again) are DISCARDED.
>actively trying to manufacture a meme
I thought you weebs hated reddit/9gag? Because that's exactly what separates 4chan from them, the reason content on 4chan is good or funny is because it's spontaneous, natural. Creating memes is literally, and I mean literally without hyperbole, reddit.
Hey I'm probably a bit late to this but has anyone brought up Clio? Muse of history just animu her up. Also meme magic for you ebola chan, winter chan, and baal retards.
>any user-event is autistic
Maybe you should leave then.
nope. That guy posted while I was searching for an image. ctrl F hadn't brought anything up before I started.
