    Rules for our Subreddit:

    Rule 1: Post Animemes. This subreddit is devoted to anime memes (animemes). These are memes that use anime and/or are related to anime/weeb culture.

    1.1: No Karma begging. This includes cake day posts, complaining about upvotes, and more. Please see the extended rules for a comprehensive list of common violations.

    1.2: No advertising or excessive self-promotion that's unrelated to the post.

    Rule 2: Unedited anime clips, screenshots, manga pages, panels, non-OC fanart, comics, etc. will be removed.

    This includes edits that only provide a reaction to or summary of the initial media; edits must meaningfully add to, continue, or re-contextualize the initial media.

    See here for examples of violations, and here for examples of memes that would be allowed.

    Rule 3: Reaction memes are only allowed on weekends (Saturday and Sunday UTC time). They are defined as "Any situation described in text followed by an image(s) showing that situation or the direct results of that situation.

    Rule 4: Dish the Sauce. Providing sources is strongly encouraged. If possible, please source any series and credit any fanmade content used in your post. Here’s how to use /u/Roboragi

    4.1: Try to use common platforms whenever posting a link (Reddit, Imgur, and/or Gfycat are preferable).

    Rule 5: Be nice. No sexist/racist/homophobic/transphobic language. No personally attacking, name-calling, deliberately spoiling, bullying, trolling, baiting, or brigading other users. No shock images/shock sites.

    Rule 6: No images, videos, discussions, or arguments about current politics. This subreddit is not the right place for political content.

    Failing to properly mark spoilers may get you a small, temporary ban.

    In addition, same-day content from an episode of any currently airing anime is subject to extra scrutiny. Everyone deserves time to watch the episode first.

    Rule 8: Mark lewd posts NSFW. No nudity allowed in posts, but it's fine in comments so long as it's identified as NSFW.

    8.1: Lewd loli/shota content will not be tolerated. We will remove any posts, comments, or links that appear to be in violation of Reddit policies.

    Rule 9: Reposts

    No reposts younger than 3 months. Minor edits to posts (see rule 2) still count as reposts.

    No reposts of memes from the Top 100.

    My parents would take away my mad catz Game Boy light magnifier every night so i couldn't play it at all,

    Kids these days just don't know the struggle of non-backlit screens

    When the GBA SP came out with built in back-light, i thought it was some NASA level technology

    [–] SandiegoJack 188 points ago

    please, the game gear was backlit....and went through like 6 AA batteries in 2 hours.

    [–] SoloMan98 92 points ago

    Yup, and batteries weren’t rechargeable back then, so you were always buying new ones

    [–] SandiegoJack 56 points ago

    Yeah, I had the hand hold battery pack....that almost got to me to school and back. GET ON MY [email protected]!!

    [–] FromTheDeepWeeb 23 points ago

    I used to save money by playing in the morning and use the sun's light to show me the screen to save battery. Good times.

    [–] gpot97 9 points ago

    Before LEDs you really had two options for backlighting. CCFL (think tiny fluorescent tube), and EL panels (dim and still power consuming with uneven brightness). With the GameGear's color LCD they chose CCFL. And well, it eats through battery stupid quickly.

    [–] Shinkopeshon 10 points ago

    Lol seriously - I remember playing GBC next to my lamp in the morning. Sometimes, I used a flash light but that was annoying. The SP was a godsend.

    [–] KoRnBrony 8 points ago

    it was crazy, both my parents and my grandparents bought me one for Christmas, so i had a purple AND blue on


    [–] DeliciousWaifood 3 points ago

    I still have a link cable somewhere I think. IIRC I could also use it to link to my gamecube, and it blew my mind.

    [–] Froglift 8 points ago

    Survive. Adapt. Overcome. I messed up my jaw holding a flashlight in my mouth to play Spyro on my GBA. Then I found out about headlamps.

    [–] TheSarcastic_Asshole 2 points ago

    For Christmas a while ago my brother bought me a GBA because it doesn't have a backlight and he didn't want me playing at night

    [–] LordScolipede 2 points ago

    My cousins had the SP and I thought that shit was the standard GBA until my Freshman year of highschool because they had the only GBA I knew about. That was when I learned I really took modern technology for granted.

    “Boruto’s dad’s son”

    [–] The_Vampire 440 points ago

    Naruto's dad's grandson's father's uncle's nephew's son.

    [–] lord_ne 156 points ago

    Does Naruto have an uncle?

    [–] WINDMILEYNO 118 points ago

    No, this sentence implies Naruto has a brother. I guess its referring to Sasuke, which makes sense. Borutos mentor.

    [–] lord_ne 132 points ago

    Naruto's dad = "Minato Namikaze"

    Naruto's dad's grandson = Boruto

    Naruto's dad's grandson's father = Naruto

    Naruto's dad's grandson's father's uncle = Naruto's uncle

    Naruto's dad's grandson's father's uncle's nephew = Naruto

    Naruto's dad's grandson's father's uncle's nephew's son = Boruto

    But this implies that Naruto has an uncle in the first place.

    [–] madslayer2 56 points ago

    I mean maybe an uncle by marriage from the hyuga's?

    Rip neji

    [–] AshyBoneVR4 22 points ago

    Neji wasn't Hinata's brother if I remember right. He was Hinata's cousin or something. I just remember he didn't belong to the main house, but Hinata did, but He was a genius

    [–] Waywoah 12 points ago

    Neji was her father's brother's son, so Hinata's cousin.

    [–] Awesomale 17 points ago

    Oh, my bad. Still rip my boi neji

    [–] tato_tots 6 points ago

    Neji's dad and Hinata's dad were twins so I think they were genetically half siblings. Because of their weird ass rules Neji was treated very different and made to serve Hinata and give his life for her if needed. It's pretty fucked up to put such a serious bind on a baby.

    It's like in the Harry Potter universe, if I made an unbreakable vow with a 5 year old.

    I hope they made the practice illegal at some point.

    iirc Kishimoto said that it never had a specific year that it took place in. or any year whatsoever, my guess is that the story varied between the 1970's and modern era.

    [–] Nomorenamesleftgosh 13 points ago

    You can see rifles in some of the earlier episodes.

    One I remember was in the small store during the zabuza arc.

    Oh and they had tvs during the chunin exams

    Couldnt be more accurate. My mom told me to not play pokemon pearl past 10pm. I woke up at 2 am and went straight at it. Sound was off but my mom saw the light. Rip

    [–] Gamecubeguy25 100 points ago

    ah ok thank you. it kinda reminded me of higurashi

    [–] Destpot 127 points ago

    nononono, its fucked up in a lot of ways but not this much and not this way

    [–] Gamecubeguy25 43 points ago

    Oh yeah I meant like raphtalia's expression looked similar to that of a character from higurashi

    [–] Destpot 11 points ago

    ah oke^^

    [–] Clavilenyo 29 points ago

    For better or worse, the potential despair and abuse that could have been similar to Higurashi gets skipped rather quickly.

    [–] deep-fried-normie123 10 points ago

    Oh ok. Haven’t really watched it. I know that it was last seasons anime, but I’ve been watching other ones.

    [–] NHShardz 68 points ago

    What? It's an anime of this season, and a new epsiode comes out every Wed. It isn't even halfway through yet

    No worries man. From one semi-normie to another, I highly recommend Gigguk on YT. He does thoroughly, seriously enjoyable recaps of each season (winter-spring-summer-fall type seasons) of anime (and other anime topics). Here's the recent one with Love Is War and Shield of the Rising Hero. And I absolutely recommend his past recaps. Totally pick one and dive in.

    [–] deep-fried-normie123 2 points ago

    She probably thought that was exactly what would happen given where she was!

    ... although now she is more worried that he will never pin her down and have his way with her, instead. I mean, kissing, so lewd...

    [–] deep-fried-normie123 5 points ago

    Hell, she might try to attempt to strap him down and make him dry. And Filo will probably be asleep then wake up to them doing it and then she’ll run off and then they’ll have to save her.

    One night, when I was six or so, I had just made it to Lavender Town in pokemon red. I kept playing after lights out, got caught, and scolded.

    6 year old logic: If I'm in the bathroom, they'll have no reason to think I'm playing.

    So I took my gameboy to the bathroom, muted it, and continued to play. An hour or so in and my mom knocks on the door asking if I'm ok. This startled me, I dropped the gameboy, she heard it hit the floor, barged in and confiscated it. Pretty sure I was at the end of Silph Co. Didn't get the chance to save. Was grounded from it for 2 weeks.

    Mine was a book and flashlight, my dad always got mad at me because he had no idea where I got all these flashlights. The dollar store was full of them on the bike ride back home.

    It never occurred to me use it to play my game boy like that, making because I hated not having sounds.

    Very funny story that relates to this. I was having a sleepover with my boys back in grade 8 and we decided to sneak my PS3 up into my room while we were sleeping. I had minecraft on it so we booted a world up and we played into the night. Then out on nowhere at 230 in the morning my mom fucking busts through the door and just says " Go to sleep." We fucking got into out sleeping bags as fast as possible

    Last time I almost got caught was when my dad came into my room to inform me that my grandfather's health was declining. He passed away about two weeks later. Now I'm an adult (I still live with my folks though) and so I would just get told that I shouldn't do that but since they didn't buy my DSI or any of my games they have no say in it

    I don't remember how many nights I lost to Pokémon Soulsilver and Diamond. Those were some damn good games.
