  2. Mosaic preferences in Visual Novel H-Scenes

    From the moment I saw Scorp vs Dovac at VNDB because of mosaic in G-Senjou, I already think that it's pretty pointless to me and so does the debate (Note that it was back at 2015). So I'm pretty much okay wheter there'll be mosaic or not (I'd read Sengpku Rance with mosaic), and I'll just leave the preference to each of their own whether you want to have mosaic or not

  4. Random VN: Shoujo to Toshi no Sa, Futamawari

    I played this. The highlight of the VN was the first half (basically everything up to and including the first H-scene). It did a great job of showing two lonely individuals who find comfort and eventually love in each other's presence, and the way Mizuka slowly warmed up to Masumi was adorable. I just found almost everything after that underwhelming. For almost the entire second half of the VN the relationship just seemed to stay at a stagnant high with neither any significant steps forward nor any major conflict between the two. And there seemed to be quite a few parts that went nowhere and served little purpose but to build up to the H-scenes. I enjoyed the drama in the last chapter though. This could just be a case of me having patience problems (I'm still a newbie to VNs and especially single-heroine VNs are an unexplored genre for me) and a fetish for melodrama. I still think this VN is something that older players in their 30's and 40's could find worth trying out.
  5. Getchu Bishoujo Game Awards 2018 are out

    Indeed. For Rance to only get 2nd place can only mean that Summer Pockets must be truly spectacular.
  6. I only used it with some Grisaia's scenes, cuz' they were all too good and funny to read. But usually I'm not a huge fan of H-scenes so I stick to reading it once.
  7. Getchu Bishoujo Game Awards 2018 are out

    Worst top 3 that I've seen in Getchu awards. Rance in the second place says much about 2018.
  8. Note that it doesn't include VNs without achievement or people funding it outside Steam such as Kickstarter reaching many stretch goal but low Steam sales. I wonder if the price affect your decision in purchasing VNs.

    But it is not even school life
  10. System Requirements for VN

    I'll just seconded Plk_Lesiak here that OP's laptop here should be able to run Symphonic Rain, and if I may suggest you can delete Japanese and Chinese support if you chose Steam version because it's waste of HDD if you only play in English.
  11. i replay the scene before h-scene.
  12. Who doesn't play nukige or eroge?

    I can recommend a ton, but just from top of my head (warning, a lot of what I recommend will be EVNs): Otome or quasi-otome: Soulset Cupid Cinders The Letter Yuri: Flowers Fatal Twelve Shadows of Pygmalion Nurse Love Addiction A Little Lily Princess Other: One Thousand Lies Analogue: A Hate Story Sable's Grimoire Ace Academy
  13. For those of you who are curious, I played this VN on a request from an old friend who wanted an opinion before he bought it (I already had the game, just hadn't opened it). This game is relatively short, being a kinetic novel, but that doesn't detract from the experience at all, at least in my eyes. Now, I was skeptical about the concept of a VN focused on romance between a middle-aged guy and a girl in school... for one thing, it is a theme that has been mostly avoided like the plague outside of nukige in recent years. For another, it is a type that is hard to pull off without it seeming like a self-serving old man writer vicariously enjoying time with young girls. Luckily, this game manages to pull the relationship and its formation off rather believably, which was a surprise to me. While this game isn't the type to get named in an awards show or make it to the top of my list of VNs to play, I can honestly say it was worth playing, and I don't regret the time spent on it. The relationship formation is extremely gradual, with neither of them having any feelings for each other beyond awkward friendliness at first. This made the slow shift in their feelings feel natural to me, as they began to get past their mutual loneliness and began to care for one another aside from the need to ease it. This isn't, for once, a story about an old man taking advantage of a much younger girl (if anything, she's the one who forces things along at the critical points), but it doesn't avoid the issues that inevitably come up in this type of situation either. There is some drama, but it ends on a touching note, with the major issues involving the characters' relationships solved for the most part.
  14. A Sky Full of Stars - +18 Restoration

    I am more than happy to do this. I haven't read the visual novel yet. I did this for the Konosora project as QA and I think my progress actually went pretty smoothly. It shoudl be smoother moreso if I did it here since I only have to really make sure the leadup to the H scenes from the Moenovel TL actually coincides with the H scene TL and/or that the game doesn't break at any point in the main game. I also read at a decent pace, unless there's some game breaking bugs to fix I don't think it would take too long (I'm not gonna super rush of course). I'll MAKE time to read this for this project since I would love to see it come to completion.
  15. For most of the time it isn't terrible, a bit awkward or stiff at times, typical for older translations, but readable. But there are some lines in the later parts of the game that look unedited, as they are almost unreadable mess. Very strange, almost as if they were pasted from different thing... Unfortunately this project is stalled for now - I feel that I bit more than I could chew, as the script is pretty big - over 62k lines. Maybe I'll try doing "lite" version first, fixing only those obviously messed-up lines. Fixing whole script (=reducing its awkwardness and making it more consistent) which I intended to do, might be too much of a task for me after all - I mean, with me being an ESL, whose only writing practice are years of forum posting, I fear that I might involuntarily produce something equally awkward, while thinking that I 'fixed' it... As for the game itself - I'd say it's cheap enough to be worth getting even at regular price
  16. Hello Good Bye English Release (January 25th)

    I just saw it as he accepted it. (She seemed stubborn about it anyways) Though, you're probably right.
  17. Usually after finishing a part of the VN. And every now and then after that for obious reasons. I wouldn't ever finish a VN if I read them during the Story so I usually only skim through them and watch them completely later.
  18. Spring Anime List of 2019

    I guess, it's a good time to finally read Yuno and finish the second season of Chihayafuru.
  19. Who doesn't play nukige or eroge?

    Well, if that's your preference, then that's fine. It would be nice if you have a vndb list so that we don't recommend VNs which you have already read. Anyways, here are some all-ages VNs which I enjoyed: 1. Ever17 2. Zero Escape series (9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors, Virtue's Last Reward) 3. Rewrite 4. Ace Attorney series (but especially the third one, Trials and Tribulations) 5. Danganronpa series (Trigger Happy Havoc, Goodbye Despair, Killing Harmony) 6. Root Double
  20. I have played all-ages version of eroge however they are not my cup of tea. Because I don't like harem and at the very beginning, the girls would show their blatant affection (or dislike for tsundere) towards the protagonist, sometimes for no reason at all as it is their first meeting. Of course, this is just my preferences and opinion. So yeah, I'm not exactly avoiding them as you said but I don't mind limiting my reading options if it is mean I don't have to play something I don't like.
  21. Spring Anime List of 2019

    Also it seems that this list is still updating with new spring shows so keep checking in until April gets closer.
  22. Rarely. I gotta admit that cosplay H-scenes are my weakness...
  23. Humu, humu.... It seems that I am the one who hasn't explore fuwanovel. I don't expect so many people don't play nukige or eroge. Then, then... do you guys have any VN recommendations that is not nukige or eroge? Doesn't have to be otome ONLY.
  24. Spring Anime List of 2019

    It's out so have a look and discuss it if you'd like. Spring Anime List of 2019
  25. What Anime are you watching now?

    It's a brilliant series, but save a box of tissues for later on...
  26. That's too bad. I guess one of the biggest issues with anime/manga adaptations of visual novels are that they often change the story or do mashups of several routes to make up for the lack of choices that are available in the visual novels. Tayutama is a VN I've been wanting to read, but unable to due to it still being untranslated. Hikari Field is localizing the sequel, but there are no plans for first one as far as I know.
