About this blog

Figured I would add a talkspace where I could just write about whatever I want, considering the amount of random off-topic conversations I've added to the forum. And yes, the blog name is named after that Ever17 location. My name, however, isn't related to Ever17 whatsoever. It's a coincidence that I decided to make use of. Go figure.

The Different Treatment of Sex Scenes: Japan vs. America

Two years ago, Warner Brothers released an adaptation of their highly controversial graphic novel, "The Killing Joke", and there was an additional scene previously non-existing in the book: Batigirl fucking Batman. Yeah, fucking Batman. Let's just call it what it is. Of course, with the kind of relationship both characters previously had towards each other (a father and daughter kind), the Internet went crazy. America went crazy. It was treated as disgusting and highly inappropriate. The fi

Reorganizing My Thoughts on Ever17 (To Be Revised Accordingly)

Okay, so I was a bit impatient when pouring out my thoughts on Ever17, so I didn't quite write about how I feel about the VN as a whole, as opposed to just Coco's ending. This is kinda a summary of what I've already written in the "What Are You Playing" thread, so that you could better understand where I'm coming from. Any questions you have regarding my discontent that I haven't explained anywhere else, feel free to ask them in the comment section. BEWARE OF SPOILERS. For ease of reading,

Steins;Gate Elite Thoughts

Transferred from my "YouTube Most Random" post. Normally, I don't bother rereading stories that I've already read once, but with this one in particular, I might make an exception, especially with its fully animated scenes. In that sense, Steins;Gate Elite might just be reduced to a borderline VN, and not a true VN. lol Guess VNDB will have some trouble cataloguing it, considering what they said about School Days... Actually, this seems to be a much more appropriate way of rea

Yet Another Reason Why I Shouldn't Play Chaos;Head Yet

The Key visual novel, "Little Busters!", has some additional routes in its "Ecstasy version" with two new heroines. These new routes weren't translated back then, which was why I didn't get to play them when I first played Little Busters. Now that they have been translated, however, I'm still unaware of how these new routes are accessed, and whether if they would require me to replay the whole story or not. If so, then it's a good example of why playing a partially translated VN is a bad idea, p

Aoishiro's Infodump is Boring and Infuriating (and Far Worse Than Ever17)

Infodumping. It's an aspect in VN that I usually don't like, but put up with it from time to time. If the lore described in the infodump is interesting, however, I usually don't mind, which is why Fate/Stay Night and Muv-Luv Alternative usually get a pass from me. This time, however, there's a combination of factors that makes Aoishiro's infodumping far more tedious than others. Yes, the untranslated encyclopedia is one of the main factors, and a key factor in fact, since it would be more c

Got My First Normal End in Aoishiro

Usually, when you hear "Normal End," you wouldn't really hear someone say, "First Normal End" since there's usually only one Normal End that unlocks the True End (with the exceptions being "Normal End" for Heroine A or Heroine B). Seems like Aoishiro breaks that mold by not having Bad Ends, but also multiple "Normal Ends" as well. This actually reminds me of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: Matsuri, the PS2 version of Higurashi that features a branching route structure filled with Bad Ends (which

The Parallel of Michiru Matsushima and Yumiko Sakaki

There have often been times in the Grisaia series when Michiru and Yumiko were compared to one another by Yuuji, and this was not surprising. Both Michiru and Yumiko are tsunderes on some level - Michiru being the fake tsundere, and while Yumiko is more of a kuudere, there have been occasional tsun-tsun moments with her. Such superficial similarities aside, both individuals also suffer from the more textbook forms of social anxiety (Makina's anxiety is a bit more complex and special, hence why I

The Lack of Choices in Swan Song and Why I Prefer VNs with Many Choices

Disappointed to learn that Swan Song only has two Bad Ends, a Normal End, followed by an unlocked True End. That means there will probably be very few choices. Now I remember why I dropped this in the first place back then. There were only two VNs I've completed that had either very few choices or no choices at all: Umineko no Naku Koro ni and Grisaia no Kajitsu, and I only read both of them due to their reputation as amazing stories (not just "good" or "great," but so amazing that they rec
