show you need to watch to be part of the 'in crowd'

How to be an /a/ regular (aka trolling):

post the same image daily for trolling purposes, reuse the same troll copypasta every couple of days, usually in between different time periods (daytime /a/ vs nighttime /a/). make false claims about various shows (works well if you know nothing about the show). if you are unsure you are responding to a troll, make sure you give them a 3/10 reply before answering so you save face.

Other things you need to know:

pretend you own figs by bragging about stuff you wish you had. claim to have seen over 500 anime, when in reality you've only seen ~15. save all the touhou images that ever get posted, even if you don't play the game because you won't be considered cool if you don't.
