It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.
Watching NOAH (2014).
I got this from a friend who was reading majority of the Elsword forums.

THEY DONT HAVE LEGAL WAY TO JUST TAKE ANY OF THESE SITES DOWN. AND MANY OWNERS OF THOSE SITES JUST SAID THAT THOSE REQUESTS FROM JAPANESE GOVERMENT ARE GOING TO STRAIGHT IN A BIN…
what do you mean anime isn’t finally illegal
People, it’s not that anime is illegal. Pirating anime is illegal. And honestly, is should be. Why? Because it protects property rightfully owned by the respective artists of anime and/or manga and the companies that distribute anime/manga products.
Here’s the deal. Most people I know either watch anime or read manga that have been illegally downloaded in websites. These people may think they are supporting the anime and manga industries by doing this, but the fact is they are not. If you pirate anime or manga, you are actually hurting these two already-endangered niche markets.
The thing with anime and manga is that the amount of people who watch anime and read manga isn’t equal to the amount of people that actually buy anime merchandise and manga, and that is because people would rather watch anime or read manga for free on illegal websites. Profits are then taken away from anime/manga companies because of this. Often, companies cannot cope with the financial loss and, thus, are forced to go under. Over and over again, the existence of this problem has been reiterated around the anime/manga community.
Basically, what I am trying to say is people do not work for free. This includes writers, artists, distributors, etc. If you want something, you have to pay for it. If you like something and want more of that something, support the people who actually make that something possible.
I’m just really passionate about anime and I really don’t want it to disappear. Don’t just watch anime and/or read manga; support the industry.
