25 Visual Novels One Should Read In 2019

Kiriririri

295 views

It is not uncommon to see people in mainstream news sources dismiss visual novels, if they’re even mentioned. Born of misconceptions such as belief that Japanese media is often “inferior”; a belief that they “aren’t video games” (despite copious evidence regarding their format and presentation suggesting them to be a different medium entirely); and a difficulty in easily describing and discussing often lengthy and complex works, journalists and other types of discussions tend to ignore them, only trying to focus on shorter, easier to discuss western works that, often, have a mere fraction of the budget and artistic ambition. It’s very telling that the mainstream press described freeware hit Doki Doki Literature Club as a masterpiece, while the majority of the VN community dismissed it as a mediocre horror game.

 

That does not have to be the case, however. Here, I shall discuss a great number of this medium’s greatest achievements, outlining why they work the way they do. Hopefully, with this, transcribed from the words of my own and others in the community, I believe we can truly enlighten people about what this medium is capable of. If you see one that interests you, read it. If you see one that’s localization isn’t out yet or doesn't even have one yet, build up interest in it getting one. Who knows, you may be surprised by what you find.

 

1. Kin'iro Loveriche

DWIM_wkU8AEVaLR.jpg

Original Release Date: 2017-12-22

Developer: Saga Planets

Scenario Writer: Umbrellaman

Genre: Romance, Shounen, Slife of Life, Shoujo, Drama, Seinen, Death

Severity of Content: Max

Translation Status: None

 

The Story: Noble Private Academy: it is where the ladies and gentlemen of the future are raised. At this boarding school, students not only learn basic education, but are also taught how to be dignified. This year is especially unique since royalty from the small Scandinavian country of Sortilège were invited to the school. Ouro caught the eye of the princess Sylvia after a certain incident, which led to him being beaten up at the school and ultimately placed into a vacant room in the girls’ dormitory.

Why You Should Read It: When one begins reading Kin'iro Loveriche, one might initially be left wondering why you’re reading it. While it has good production values, an entertaining enough cast and some genuinely funny comedy, it feels like little more than a generic dating sim that one will forget about within days of finishing. While there is a noticeable emphasis on the girls’ physical features, blonde hair, this hardly seems like worth paying attention to.

This decidedly changes when one enters any heroine route, and the reader realises that the entire visual novel they just read through was little more than a prologue. Both Ouro and the reader find themselves in a completely different world, with no choice but to completely change how they view everything around them. At times, Ouro's difficulty to adjust to the rules of the elite world can be frustrating, but the reader themselves will often struggle to do the same. One who has never seen elites cannot truly understand it, after all.

What is especially impressive is that the majority of the characters don’t really change per se. What the reader is given is, on the paper, fairly flat and stock rom-com characters, but who become a genuinely engrossing ensemble once the reader meets them within a new context.

The presentation of Kin'iro Loveriche also deserves special mention. Unlike most visual novels, which rely on their text, static sprites, backgrounds and sound effects, Kin'iro Loveriche utilizes a more complex kind of visual communication. Character sprites have blonde hair. The sprites themselves move around the backgrounds in such ways to properly communicate a blonde hair. There are dozens of graphics which depict the interface of hair, the hails of blondness and movement of the hair. Reading Kin'iro Loveriche is like going to a barber.

It is when one reaches true route, the real meat of the narrative, that Kin'iro Loveriche becomes an explosion of emotion. After hours of build-up, the reader is thrust into the world of unfairness. It is a decidedly brutal tale which pulls no punches in showing the suffering on display. The fight is intense and tragic, with the ever constant feeling of the heroine never having odds in their favour. Character you have spent tens of hours with, perish. It is not a happy experience.

Regardless of the despair, however, Kin'iro Loveriche tells a story which still remains virtuous and enables one to push forward. Its sheer epic scope and complexity enables it to always be exciting and unique, and its moments outside of action always savour emotion, while a good number of valuable twists keeps the momentum going onward. It is a truly incredible experience and, while it might take a little while to get there, is one that should definitely never be missed by anyone.

Why You Should Read It: When one begins reading Kin'iro Loveriche, one might initially be left wondering why you’re reading it. While it has good production values, an entertaining enough cast and some genuinely funny comedy, it feels like little more than a generic dating sim that one will forget about within days of finishing. While there is a noticeable emphasis on the girls’ physical features, blonde hair, this hardly seems like worth paying attention to.

This decidedly changes when one enters any heroine route, and the reader realises that the entire visual novel they just read through was little more than a prologue. Both Ouro and the reader find themselves in a completely different world, with no choice but to completely change how they view everything around them. At times, Ouro's difficulty to adjust to the rules of the elite world can be frustrating, but the reader themselves will often struggle to do the same. One who has never seen elites cannot truly understand it, after all.

What is especially impressive is that the majority of the characters don’t really change per se. What the reader is given is, on the paper, fairly flat and stock rom-com characters, but who become a genuinely engrossing ensemble once the reader meets them within a new context.

The presentation of Kin'iro Loveriche also deserves special mention. Unlike most visual novels, which rely on their text, static sprites, backgrounds and sound effects, Kin'iro Loveriche utilizes a more complex kind of visual communication. Character sprites have blonde hair. The sprites themselves move around the backgrounds in such ways to properly communicate a blonde hair. There are dozens of graphics which depict the interface of hair, the hails of blondness and movement of the hair. Reading Kin'iro Loveriche is like going to a barber.

It is when one reaches true route, the real meat of the narrative, that Kin'iro Loveriche becomes an explosion of emotion. After hours of build-up, the reader is thrust into the world of unfairness. It is a decidedly brutal tale which pulls no punches in showing the suffering on display. The fight is intense and tragic, with the ever constant feeling of the heroine never having odds in their favour. Character you have spent tens of hours with, perish. It is not a happy experience.

Regardless of the despair, however, Kin'iro Loveriche tells a story which still remains virtuous and enables one to push forward. Its sheer epic scope and complexity enables it to always be exciting and unique, and its moments outside of action always savour emotion, while a good number of valuable twists keeps the momentum going onward. It is a truly incredible experience and, while it might take a little while to get there, is one that should definitely never be missed by anyone.

The Story: Noble Private Academy: it is where the ladies and gentlemen of the future are raised. At this boarding school, students not only learn basic education, but are also taught how to be dignified. This year is especially unique since royalty from the small Scandinavian country of Sortilège were invited to the school. Ouro caught the eye of the princess Sylvia after a certain incident, which led to him being beaten up at the school and ultimately placed into a vacant room in the girls’ dormitory.

Thanks to remind me of GPPC there with the school name is the same one, although I wouldn't be sure though if I can reread Kirikoi 13 times along with the FD 12 times (I'm sure that I would be sick with the blonde color by then lol).
