Hell yeah. Top image is accurate. 4chan and Youtube had just been created and everything was new and exciting. Most 4channers including myself were high-school kids back then. Even something like "lol" was not a part of culture outside of the internet. And feminists were just a passing curiosity, SJW wasn't a thing. Things were pretty chill till around 2008, that's when internet culture started to seep into the real world. Project Chanology was kind of a defining moment for that.
Things were still decent up until around 2012. And IMO the whole GamerGate thing, whether you care about it or not, marked the downfall of 4chan. I mean 4chan still exists and is not going to go down or anything, but every time I go there it's the same 10 generic topics. But that's just how it be. The craziest thing was how the whole niggers and Jews thing went from being a joke to the shitshow we have now.>>718
Yeah, Yotsuba, Azumanga and Ichigo Mashimaro were the big thing back in 05-06, then Haruhi was pretty big, then Lucky Star, then Squid Girl, then Watamote… Probably missed a bunch. Time just keeps going. Oh well, there's always some new shit going on in the world.
