Minna, ossu! Apparently, today is my second anniversary here at BanPa (I made an account back in 2019, but never posted anything until around November 2020), so I wanna do a community appreciation post because this is, I would say, the most wholesome and pleasant community I’ve ever been part of. Therefore, I wanna thank y’all for being so welcoming to anyone who enjoys Bandori! I’ll be honest, I’ve never done any appreciation posts in my life, so my apologies in advance if it’s absolutely terrible LMAO. I know I may come off as arrogant or full of myself to some of y’all, but that’s just me being true to myself. I hate pretending to be someone who I’m not and I secretly do want to make people laugh by making an ass out of myself, even though I’m not very outgoing in real life. Sorry if I swear too much in my posts or if I’m being too insensitive and blunt in some of my posts, but I truly am thankful for being in such a wholesome community. Without further ado, I’ll just shut up and start the community appreciation post by doing the cringiest shout outs y’all probably ever see to some of the many amazing people in this community. <3
As I mentioned earlier, this community is wholesome and welcoming, therefore, I just wanna give a shout out to the people I interacted with here and people I recognized from notifications I got LOL. Please don’t be offended if I didn’t mention you, I don’t dislike/hate you at all if I didn’t mention you. I feel like I should make this extremely clear. I’ll be honest, I sort of wrote this beforehand, so if you changed your names, my apologies because I’m not that active here anymore compared to before (yeah, I was that bored that I wrote this beforehand LMAO). Oh, and since I’m a degenerate err… I mean, a weeb, I wanna also make a challenge for myself and try to guess what your favorite anime/manga besides Bandori are. If y’all want to, let me know how miserably I failed down in the comments below LMAO. :D
kaede_: Yo, I can’t believe I haven’t done this yet, but let me just first thank you for the follow. Ya boi was like: “Paisen noticed me! POGGERS!” when I got the notification that you followed me LMAO. I swear, mademoiselle, you seem to find my posts pretty often. You sure you’re not stalking ya boi? I kid, I kid. Please don’t kill me! :D Thanks for upvoting my sh*tty and cringey posts LOL. I really appreciate it! I don’t know how much of a weeb you are, but uh… You sure love Love Live!, so I guess that’s my answer for your favorite anime LOL.
lii_kun (I believe you were Kokichi_kin): Yo, your art is sick! You lowkey kinda make me want to start drawing again (I used to draw in high school, but stopped), but I’m too lazy to LMAO! As a fellow weeb who appreciates the greatness that is “LOST IN PARADISE feat. AKLO” by ALI, I wanna give you a virtual fist bump. I know you’re a weeb, but are you a bigger degenerate than ya boi? I don’t think so. I’m kidding. :D My guess for your favorite anime/manga is maybe Yakusoku no Neverland (The Promised Neverland for you cool people). The reason is because of that sick Emma drawing you drew a while ago. If not, I’ll go with Jujutsu Kaisen as my second choice.
Neko-Noodle (Chomama): You’re probably most likely the friendliest and nicest person on BanPa. You don’t discriminate and follow back anyone who followed you from what I saw when I visited your profile. Furthermore, you’re probably the one that upvotes everyone’s posts (even people you haven’t interacted with). BanPa doesn’t deserve you, but are lucky to have you! :D I’ve never heard you talk about anime/manga, so I don’t know what your favorite series is, but if I had to guess, I’d say Hibike! Euphonium (Sound! Euphonium for you cool people).
-MintMochii- (I believe you were -ChomamaLi-): Not gonna lie, at first, I thought you were twins with Neko-Noodle since both of y’all had the “Chomama” in your names LMAO. You’re super nice and I love your drawings. They’re super cute! Gee, I wonder what your favorite anime is. It’s definitely not Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia for the cool people) LOL. ;)
Kasei_: I probably spoke to you the most (well, it’s between you or noraragi LOL) and I gotta say, you’re really easy to talk to. You’re outgoing and friendly. Dude (still gonna call you this even though you told me you’re a girl LMAO), just keep practicing and you’ll get better at this game, I promise. After all, that’s how ya boi went from absolute trash to just trash at this game LMAO. Hmm… I don’t know what your favorite anime/manga is actually, but if I had to guess, uh… probably Pokémon because I’m too lazy to use my brain for deductive reasoning.
Amarena: Amarena-paisen thanks for upvoting my cringey and sh*tty posts LOL. I didn’t really interact with you, but you seem like a friendly and chill person. :D I visited your profile once, and you called yourself a “weeb” on your profile, so I guess you do watch anime. My guess for your favorite anime is probably: ♪ Tsuyoku nareru riyuu wo shitta ♪ ♪ Boku wo tsurete SUSUMEEEEEEEE ♪ (That’s Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon Slayer for y’all that don’t get the reference)
noraragi: Aye, thanks for upvoting and commenting in my posts LOL. I appreciate that. :D Just like I mentioned in the shout out to Kasei_, you’re outgoing and really easy to talk to. Keep it up LOL! I mean, you do have Phosphophyllite as your avatar, so I guess your favorite anime, or at least one of them, is Houseki no Kuni (Land of the Lustrous for you cool people).
Zumoni: Mademoiselle, I never interacted with you, but I really appreciate you upvoting my cringey ass posts LMAO. You’re really really nice and apparently we have the same birthday, so that’s cool LOL. I’m ten billion percent sure you’re a weeb since you’re friends with noraragi (according to your and her profile) LMAO. My guess for your favorite anime is probably K-ON! if I had to pick something.
Missa-chan: Missa-chwan, I wanna first thank you for reintroducing me to Anilist LMFAO. I’m lost in the anime forums majority of the time and it’s been really fun over there KEKW. I think besides yours truly, a couple of other people, and the outspoken Attack on Titan fans on BanPa, you’re the only other person I know that isn’t afraid of admitting to being a weeb on BanPa. Huge respect for admitting that because most people view that as a negative thing and thus don’t wanna admit it. When I said you have good taste in anime/manga in your post some time ago, I meant it. I had no problems with a lot of your ratings and you understood what a 10/10 rating means, so thumbs up! Like I always said, if you ever want recommendations just DM me here or on Anilist (I’m on the forums 95% of the time) and ya boi with trash taste got’chu covered. :D Wow, what a hard question, I wonder what your favorite anime/manga is? It’s definitely not Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice for you cool people) or Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo LOL.
Nikorin: I didn’t really interact with you, but you’re a fellow weeb like I am (I know this thanks to a certain post and you understanding the Kill la Kill reference I made LOL), so I gotta shout you out, ya know. :D I feel like it’s never too late for weebs to get along, so I’m down to talk about anime/manga if you want to LMAO. As for your favorite anime/manga, if I remember correctly, most of your favorite shows you mentioned were mahou shoujo type of anime, so it’s probably Cardcaptor Sakura or Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (Puella Magi Madoka Magica for the cool people).
MiYUMI: Mademoiselle, let me just first thank you for upvoting my questionable and cringey ass posts LMAO. I really appreciate it! :D Before you started posting, I was like: “Who the hell is this? I keep seeing this name popping up in my notifications. Did ya boi gain a super fan because this person keeps upvoting my posts?” So once again, thank you for enjoying (is that even the right word ROFL) my posts if you did. Even if you’re being nice, I’m still grateful. Let’s see. My guess for your favorite anime is probably Ao Haru Ride because most girls like that show LOL (not trying to stereotype here, but it’s kinda true).
Can_I_join_Hello_Happy_World: Well, I don’t know if you could join HaroHapi, mademoiselle, but you sure made my world happy by upvoting my posts... Holy sh*t, that was smooth, yet absolutely terrible at the same time KEKW (I can’t let that opportunity slip by)! So, thank you so much! :D You’re super nice and I love your profile LMAO. I don’t know what anime/manga you like, so I’m gonna take a wild guess. Your favorite anime is most likely Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie in April for you cool people).
honeybeechan: I didn’t really interact with you that much, but thanks for the follow, mademoiselle. I really appreciate it LOL. I think you’re a weeb, but I don’t know how much of a weeb you are, so my guess for your favorite anime/manga is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
SomeRandomGhost: You know, for a random ghost, you sure like to haunt ya boi quite a number of times LOL. Just kidding. You’re welcomed to come back and haunt my posts anytime, mademoiselle. <3 I remembered you asking what the favorite anime of people here are not too long ago, so you’re definitely a weeb. I think you mentioned liking Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun (Toilet-bound Hanako-kun for you cool people) in your post, so that’s my guess for your favorite anime.
nikorinnie: NIKORINNIE!!! I don’t know why, but I felt like screaming that out just now LMAO. Your name is really cute and for some reason, I like it a lot. You’re a very hyper and energetic person from what I’ve seen. Your drawings are unique and pretty damn cute! :D You don’t seem like too much of a weeb, so my guess for your favorite anime is Pokémon ‘cause your Disqus avatar is from Pokémon.
SayMrrp: You’re probably (by probably, I meant definitely) the most popular person on BanPa who doesn’t have an avatar LOL. I meant that as a compliment by the way. Thanks for upvoting my posts from time to time. I appreciate that. :D I’m pretty sure you’re a weeb, but it’s difficult for me to guess what anime you like since I’m not sure if you’re a boy or a girl due to your name being ambiguous. If I had to guess, I’d say Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan for you cool people) because I’m basic like that LMAO.
Holy sh*t, that’s longer than I expected, but that’s all I have for y’all. If you read through all of that, stay awesome and wholesome BanPa! Hope y’all have a wonderful day! :D
O-Tae said: O Rimi-rin, fix your mind on the Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krishna, who is the answer to all questions, the solution to all problem, and chant loudly "Narayana" – the only refuge of all living entities.
O lover of choco cornet, lemme tell you the story of Ajāmila, who had been rescued from the hands of the order carriers of Yamarāja – the God of Death, just by loudly calling the name Nārāyaṇa in fear.
Upon following the guidance of the great sage O-Tae, Rimi-rin had been rescued from being died and being reincanated as a choco cornet.
By hearing the story about Ajāmila, Rimi could understand the transcendental religious principles, which concern the relationship between the living being and the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Furthermore, Rimi heard glorification of the name, fame, qualities and pastimes of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, she thus became a perfectly pure devotee. She could then remember her past sinful activities, which she greatly regretted having performed.
Rimi said: Alas, being a servant of my tongue, how degraded I became! It is now clear that as a consequence of addicting to choco cornet, a sinful person like me must be eaten by choco cornets, which are now all reincanated as choco cornet eaters.
Was this a dream I saw, or was it reality? I saw fearsome choco cornets coming to swallow me. Where have they gone?
And where have the great sage O-Tae, who told me many transcendental stories, instructed me to chant the holy name Narayana to save me from being dragged down to the hellish region, gone?
I am such a sinful person, but since I have now gotten this opportunity, I must completely control my mind, life and senses and always engage in devotional service so that I may not fall again into the deep darkness and ignorance of material life.
Since then, Rimi-rin had became a devotee of Sri Krishna – the only refuge of all living entities. OwO
When Kasumi was a child, her younger sister [Asuka] asked her “What is this?”
Asuka asked: O my big sis, what is this “✰”?
Kasumi answered: O my dear baby, this is called a “star”!
Asuka said: Gotcha, sankyu big sis!
A month later, when the sisters both look up at the night sky, Asuka pointed at a sparkling point in the sky and asked her sister.
Asuka asked: O my big sis, what is that?
Kasumi said: Just a minute! Then she quickly run to her mother.
Kasumi asked her mom: O mom, what is the sparkling point in the night sky?
Mrs. Toyama answered: Are you talking about a star?
Kasumi said: Gotcha, sankyu mom. Then she quickly run to her sister.
Kasumi shouted: Baby, that is called a “star”!
Asuka said: Nani? That is a “star” and this ✰ is a “star”? How is that even possible?
Kasumi reluctantly said: uhm, uh well, maybe there’re many kinds of star OwO
She said so, but her younger sister’s question has bothered her for a long time. Maybe, she was obsessed with “star” since then.
Now Asuka is a high school student . One day, when she comes home from school, she runs to Kasumi
Asuka says sarcastically: O my silly Kasumi, all things you said to me about a “star” is not true. “A star is an astronomical object consisting of a luminous spheroid of plasma held together by its own gravity. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun.” – my professor said. It’s very very big and very very bright. If you did point at the Sun and say it’s a “star”, today the whole class wouldn’t make fun of me…
Kasumi’s confused. And she thinks “How? Why?”
So Kasumi decided searching out what make her confused.
Kasumi asked Kaoru: O my dear Kaoru-senpai, please help me. Does a “star” have many forms? If yes, which form is true and which is not? How can one differentiate if it is a true star or not? So, O my dear Kaoru-san, please tell me what is an absolutely true star?
Saintly Kaoru said: O my dear little kitten, a “star” can have no form, one form and many forms.
When Asuka had no clue of this “✰”, we can call that no clue the no form of the star.
When Asuka fixed her mind on this “✰” within no time, we can call that fixing within no time the one form of the star.
O my dear little kitten, when Asuka listened to her mom at home and when Asuka listened to her professor at school, and so on, we can call that here and there, this time and that time, the many forms of the star.
O my dear little kitten, as a price tag you can stick it to this toy or that toy, and you can take it out also, likewise, things you can perceive can be both true and not true. So what else needs to be differentiated?
O my dear little kitten, let’s offer our obeisances to the Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krishna, the Absolute Star, the Primal Star, the origin of all stars. No one can perceive him, and Krishna is beyond what’s called “true” or “not true”. People who faithfully worship stars also worship Krishna, but they do so by the wrong method. Just remember that every stars are in Krishna, and Krishna is beyond them also, ones can transform their wrong method to the absolutely most correct method.
Every characters in the alphabet is Krishna alone. “S”, ”T”, “A”, ”R” is also another name of Krishna. Krishna permit you can call him by any kinds of name, O best of the Popipa. So let’s worship him with transcendental faith.
Upon being enlightened by great sage Kaoru, Kasumi’s extremely happy, then said:
O great sage Kaoru, all things you said make sense to me. I have wasted a lot of time to differentiate this star and that star, and been more and more confused. Let’s send them all to Krishna and worship him alone. Why didn't I find Krishna till now?
Kasumi said thank you and good bye to Kaoru-senpai, then go back home in full Krishna consciousness.
It is said that Kasumi always worships Krishna in form of a star until now. OwO
Maya said: No! Why do you wanna burn Aya-chan? /cry/
Chisato said: Maya-san, Aya-chan has passed away. This corpse is not Aya-chan. Maybe she has gone somewhere…
Hina said: O my dear Maya, lemme tell you the knowledge I’m taught by the Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krishna. Knowing this, you won’t grieve for this material body anymore.
Saintly Hina continued: It’s the soul which is neither born nor die. The soul is eternal, ageless, unchangeable, so how can one destroy it? What people call as “death” is just the destruction of the body.
Saintly Hina continued: O my dear Maya-chan, as an idol sheds worn-out costumes and wears new ones, likewise, the soul casts off worn-out body and enters a new one,…
