    Fabulous on Fuwa - February!

    By Kaguya

    Introduction   Welcome, fellow Fuwamembers, to the FuwaRecognition thread. Starting this March, we’ll be highlighting some of the best contributions made by our members each month. From snazzy blog articles to delicious forum threads, and perhaps even a few things more on the shitpost part of the spectrum, we'll keep an eye out for the cream of the crop. And then we'll gather them here. Just for you.   *holds up giant APPLAUSE sign*   A-hem, so this is the f

Random VN: Bunny Black

Bunny Black is a VN and dungeon crawler by SofthouseChara, a company known for complex and well-designed game systems based in fantasy worlds. Bunny Black is one of their earlier games, and it is a lot more focused on the actual gameplay than the story. However, the gameplay is actually quite well-designed, with the ability to purchase monsters to serve as the other members of your party, the ability to choose how you will advance Darcs (the protagonist), and a mission system reminiscent of

On my interest in eroge and the eroge industry

This is a response to a comment from Tay (which I suspect has ulterior motives).   Eroge, as told through the visual novel medium, fill a void in my life. I'm well past college age, yet I've never touched a girl romantically, much less kissed or dated. You might say I'm starved for romance, yet I have little interest in dating. I could go into detail, but I'm not that interested in discussing my personal life publicly or privately. I'm going through changes in my life that might very well chang

"I'm your daughter from the future!" - Random Review - Fragment's Note

And here we go, my second visual novel review! Today we will look into Fragment's Note - a visual novel made by Alvion and Ullucus Heaven. The English version was released in June 2014 for iOS, and just recently - March 10th 2015 for PSV and Android for the price of 4,5$ (that's actually the price for iOS and Android ver, I'm not sure about PSV) Unlike the iOS ver that you can purchase freely, only players from some selected countries can purchase the Android ver. I myself had to go through all

Visual novel RPG Seinarukana needs to be marketed as a JRPG to succeed

Peter Payne, owner of VN publisher JAST and the J-List empire, made the following comment in their official forums: JAST's experience with RPGs JAST has released several RPGs over the years, including the Raidy series, Brave Soul, Aselia the Eternal, and most recently Yumina the Ethereal. JAST has said hinted before that the Raidy series did very well for them, and they seemed quite eager to work on Raidy 3, so I'd infer that it's not included in this assessment. Brave Soul was heavily pir

Sakura Spirit Writing Critique - An Introduction

For those that don’t know, the other day some villains ambushed me and they gave me a task – to produce a writing critique of Sakura Spirit. This, they say, will entertain the masses and provide much mirth for those on Fuwa. It is a task I went into full of hubris. But first some background. Sakura Spirit is an English developed Visual Novel with extroadinarily pretty art, and yet it suffers from a horrible reputation. A reputation even more repulsive than those terribly translated, doujin, n

First Untranslated Route FIN - What It Means To Me

I Did It So anybody who interacts with me on a regular basis probably has heard me be really hyped about the fact that I have finished my first route. Another indicator of my happiness over this would be the fact that... you know: So I am writing this up, because I want to mark this as a milestone in my learning process. While sure, it may not seem like a big deal... but for me it is pretty huge for me. For the longest time before I got the chance to start learning Japanese, I al

Silverio Vendetta: Vendetta

Vendetta After playing this route, I am severely tempted to immediately abuse my authority as the master of this blog and just name Silverio Vendetta VN of the Month for February. However, that really would be an abuse, so meh. Vendetta's route... let's just say it blows you away. The battles, the twists, and the overall awesomeness that accompany them are almost equivalent to that of Marie's or Rea's route in Dies Irae in impact. The way that so much of the cast evolves during the cour

Silverio Vendetta: Amatsu Oboro Chitose

Amatsu Oboro Chitose Chitose is a nearly pure-blooded descendant of the people of Japan, a nation that has come to be worshiped as a god by many, because of the way its technology altered the face of the world and civilization. Her sub-family of the Amatsu, the Oboro, were the ones who were obsessed with justice and noblesse oblige, which shows really obviously in her daily actions and reactiions. My first conclusion upon finishing her path was 'I am so glad I did Milly first'. Why? Sim

Memories Off 6 T-Wave – thoughts

I bought this in last year’s 5pb sale along with Yubikiri no Kioku and shoved it in the backlog until now. The full package is Memories Off 6 Complete, which bundles the base game with the fandisc. It’s the 6th game in the Memories Off series, which had typically placed an emphasis on its realistic setting […]<img alt=" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=awesomecurry.wordpress.com&blog=14339326&post=2306&subd=awesomecurry&ref=&feed=1"width=1" height="1" />

Silverio Vendetta: Common and Milly

Common This VN was made by the same team that did Zero Infinity and Electro Arms, and it shows (in some ways). They have definitely improved their character balance and the way they present them, as well as the overall storytelling. The common route is fairly long (think about ten hours for me, about the same amount of time it takes me to completely finish a small charage), and it covers a rather large amount of content (there is no wasted time in this game at all, and yet it still manages to

Choices in Visual Novels

Choices are one of the main things that make visual novels unique. In this post, I will be discussing types of choices and types of choice-makers. Please note that there are questions at the end of this post. I would appreciate it if you would answer them. Types of Choices Moral The moral choice is typically based around right and wrong or your personal beliefs. Oftentimes, these choices will be weighted such that you have to choose between personal gain of some kind and what you believ

Akatsuki no Goei Days... Ah Screw It. Troll Smiles Abound!

Everyone is a Troll Welcome back fellows to another episode of "Lino fails at reading Japanese but not really." The title is a work in progress. Look at them all, just being all trolly and such. So I continued my journey through the land of UnTL'd VNs, trying to make sense of the everything that I am currently reading. I cannot say that I have been 100% successful, but I am understanding WAY more than I did when I first started. I think I'll go back and read the opening sequen

The Writing in Visual Novels, Pt. I

So! A few weeks ago I created a thread to discuss how writing can be unique in visual novels and how writers can take advantage of that - hopefully not in an imperative way but more like a pool of ideas and ways we can all be innovative, ultimately developing stories that could only be told in the format we love. I'm reproducing the OP as a blog post, but I intend to expand on the thoughts. But what is "writing well" really all about, right? It's been said all over Fuwa that visual novels,

Boku no Hitori Sensou – thoughts

In the late 2000’s or so, Looseboy was quite a popular eroge writer for Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo and G-senjou no Maou. His main genre was “human drama,” which showed through quite strongly in both of his works (more in the former than the latter). He was also supposed to be one of the writers in […]<img alt=" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=awesomecurry.wordpress.com&blog=14339326&post=2299&subd=awesomecurry&ref=&feed=1"width=1" height="1" />

FuwaChanges

Hello everyone, Rose here bringing you a post relevant to all Fuwa users. As we all know, the site went through a lot of changes lately and lots of people are still a bit lost about things, so to make everything clear, Tay made a really big post explaining his plans for the future, a summary of some new features planned and much more, so be sure to read it even if you're not confused, for you might actually learn about more stuff to come. Together with that, Eclipsed made a comprehensive list of

Soreyori no Prologue part 2: Mayura and Touwa

Mayura Mayura is the second of the two secondary heroines... the protagonist's osananajimi who, predictably enough, has hidden her love for him since childhood (*pukes sand*). Anyway, having gotten my Minori complaints out of the way in previous posts, I won't bore you further with this. Mayura's route is your basic 'genki osananajimi' route combined with Minori's love of excessive drama. There are plenty of hard-hitting moments, that I'm sure that romance lovers will follow with excitement.
