    Ey, I just hit 4000 posts, or should I say, I'm only 10283 posts away from Nosebleed's disgusting post count. Wohoo. Totally going to beat that in like... 2 weeks. Totally. I'd like to take this moment to thank some special people here on Fuwanovel. @Fiddle For being the best user. @Fiddle For being the funniest user. @Fiddle For being the best at posting funny gifs, even in the most serious of discussions. @Fiddle For being the best AND the funniest user. ... ... ... Yeah, that seems to be everyone! Oh, right, AMA and all that. Ask me stuff!

    Hey

    I don't really know how to start this post, it's been so long since I've even visited Fuwanovel. To the people who knew me from way back when I was a Global Mod, I'm back! To those who don't know me at all: hello, I'm Nosebleed (though these days only this site knows me by that user), long time member and former global mod only now returning. I figured, rather than just pop up in a discussion as if nothing happened, I'd make an introduction thread in hopes of reconnecting with people a bit. If anyone has any questions about me or what happened to me, feel free to ask. As to whether this is just a short term return or not, I don't know, but I do feel compelled to at least show my face once in a while. As for a closing statement, it pleases me greatly to see Flutterz has still not overtaken me in the top members leader boards, as it should be.

    Depending on the type of VN it could have been any other bodily fluid, so I'm glad they clarified.

    Alriiiiiiiight, now comes the moment no one asked for: the disappointing answers and the shocking results! 1) A Not my fault the teachers never picked a book I actually wanted to read so classic lit usually put me to sleep. My school's cafeteria was also so-so most of the time so lunch break didn't deserve top spot by any means either. 2) B I wanted to argue with Poltroon's motive but... eeerrr... Last time I tried to argue with a friend I don't like DMC all that much they pointed how I was buying my 2nd copy of DMC4 in that same instant so welp, I give up trying to hide it. 3) A I FEEL LIKE A CHAMPION OF SELF-CONTROL WOOOO! I hope the streak doesn't break any time soon. And yes, there are BL gachas but either their translations or gameplay sucks too much for me to care about grinding them so I usually stick to otome ones. 4) B At least that was the original answer, but turns out I beat one more yesterday after posting. Go me, but oops. I'm sorry for breaking my promise that all questions had one right answer, so everyone gets a point for this one as an apology. Bonus 0.5 for Lesiak for getting it right the first time, bonus 0.25 for Zaka for having faith in my capacity of beating 11 bosses and bonus 0.1 for Kiri because he picked the 11 option too one way or the other I guess. 5) A I'm real sorry, but my shit sense of humor kinda prevents me of not choosing Mogeko Castle. I do love To The Moon, but default assets, the align puzzles serves no real purpose, yadda yadda technical bullshit excuses yadda yadda 6) C The other options are glorious, but the last one comes with an extra Archer and oh my god, imagine being served by Archer and eating with him, yadda yadda fangirlism yadda yadda 7) A I prefer 9S as a character, but voice prize goes to Eve. This is him btw (on the right): And if anyone's wondering what the コノママジャダメ is: So after this breakdown, the final score ends up as: 1st - Fiddle (4 pts) 2nd - Zaka (3.25 pts) 3rd - Poltroon (3 pts) 4th - Kiri (2.1 pts) 5th - Lesiak (1.5 pts) So our crowned champion whose badge is coming soon-tm-maybe-never is: FIDDLE!!! Moral of the story: Sheeps are powerful and now I'm scared

    Not buying from MG due to discord leak seems kind of stupid if you ask me, I would guess pretty much anyone in retail sometimes behind closed doors talk about annoying customers. And considering the 90% piracy rates and low pay I think it is pretty understandable that they rant among themselves when people are acting in an annoying way.

    Just finished SubaHibi and yeah, I liked it a lot. What surprised me a little was how "normal" the VN is in the sense that there is a coherent plot and way less artsy posing than I expected after what I read about the game beforehand. Occasionally there is an overly long tangent or some pretentious symbolism, but never to a degree that it hurts the overall experience. Also SubaHibi is one of the rare cases in Japanese media I consumed so far where I felt like the author actually did some research on the mental illnesses they wanted to portray. And it has one of the best soundtracks of any non-Key VN I've read so far, including one of the greatest stupid shenanigans songs ever, which is close to the last thing I expected to get out of it all: So after having finished almost every long VN on my must-read list, I decided to go for a change of pace and purchased a total of 14 promising looking short EVNs (plus one JVN) for a total of ~33€ in the recent VN-sale on Steam and which I'm probably going to read all over next few weeks.

    Aaaaaaah I love seiyuu stuff so I frequently read a lot about it but it's not like I save it so I can share what I remember but I sadly can't source anything. I'm only talking about male seiyuus here as I know eroge voice actresses have a total different set of rules. From what I read, for r18 game (if their agency allow them to work in r18 stuff, that is) they usually record their lines separately, get credit under an alias (but not always, surprisingly enough) and call it a day. They usually don't promote it in person nor with their personal twitter account, they have a separate one for the alias and they simply don't talk about it. It seems to be more of an entry level kind of stuff, probably because it doesn't pay as well as anime given a lot of VN developers (especially BL ones) are minuscule tiny groups in comparison with the anime industry. Not that the pay is incredible anyway, like Texas mentioned, that's why they do a lot of stuff. For drama CDs it seems to be a bit more lax, as I see some explicit shit being credit with their own names, they attend events, do radio shows about them and stuff. They also record it together, same room side by side, as I remember one seiyuu once commenting how it's harder to voice drama CD because they have to "breath in synch" for the steamy scenes or something (for the background sounds). Of course, this is only true for BL since in otome there's usually only one guy per CD. When they do mention something like embarrassement, it's usually if the one they're working with it's their senpai because "oh no, I'm so inexperienced, can't let senpai down" kind of Japanese culture stuff. A job is a job, it looks like. They audition for it knowing what they're going for, it's not like they don't know beforehand. But it's not like everyone have no shame whatsoever either, of course, but I have the impression that the ones that get a little shy aren't the most people's person in the first place. Some just want to voice shit and not really talk about it in public, I wouldn't like it either xD On the other end, a lot of seiyuus are pretty open about doing drama CDs. Taniyama Kishou (vocalist of GRANRODEO, Wilhelm from Dies Irae) and Suzuki Tatsuhisa (not VN but he voices Noctis in Final Fantasy 15 and Makoto in Free!) openly say they like doing these kind of jobs (then again, both don't waste an opportunity to say dirty shit in seiyuu events, so not surprising at all). I think I once read an interview with Midorikawa Hikaru (Shiki from Togainu no Chi and Fuminori from Saya no Uta) where he said he likes to reminisce about all the BL he did with Koyasu Takehito (Dio from JoJo) when the two meet up (they are old friends and they did a lot of r18 drama CDs together when they were starting). I once watched a video where Tomokazu Seki (Gilgamesh from FSN) did even a live improv of a more sexy passage and his translator was getting embarrassed at his side xD And then, there's Morikawa Toshiyuki (Sephiroth in Final Fantasy 7) who's known as "emperor of BL" for the overwhelming number of BL CDs he did (usually as the top role), he also openly talks about it like it's a good experience (in one interview he even mentions his favorite CD) and that nickname is even mentioned in a gag in the anime Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu. I got most of these following the seiyuus themselves since they don't really hide it.

    Clannad, well-written protagonist, who is not dense and has actual issues of his own Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai, nothing too special but the protagonist has his own dream Fureraba, I remember this one being a dumbass but I actually found it absolutely hilarious, it was too much so I kind of thought it was to mock actual self-insert protagonists but I may be reading too much into it
  14. 3 points
    I always recommend Key games to newcomers, so you could start with them. Kanon, Air, Clannad are good games to start, but all of their VNs are perfect and the protagonists have great personalities. I also like Symphonic Rain a lot. It has romance, drama and a protagonist that'll change your perspective on things

    Yes, actually! It wasn’t really intentional, but I was IP banned for about 1 day. I made an alt account, and since this is kind of frowned upon and I was openly posting on both, Nayleen wanted to merge the two, though in the process accidentaly blocked me from accessing the site completely, and I had to borrow a friend’s internet to make yet another alt, PM Nay and have him fix it Fun fact, this is also the reason I currently have a pretty unique account that is following itself. Twice. Lol. (This happened when the alts were merged with my account, while still following myself.)

    Plug for my new project. I am making a full length VN with two collaborators called “Heart Of A Hero”. It is a story about young people manifesting superpowers and being confined to specially built school/research facilities. Your character has a particularly “bad” power but discovers as they meet other students that many superpowers are often as much a curse as a blessing. We’re going with an overall comedy/romance/action formula. Some of the features that are implemented of planned: Three major routes with 3 heroines Character choices that can lead to more than 30 good and bad endings Vocalization for all major characters to help bring them to life Choose your name and gender preference at the beginning of the game to personalize the experience. These preferences will not limit your options in game, but will change the pronouns and name the characters use for you. Lots of character art that includes multiple outfits, poses, and expressions for every character About 90,000 words of text We are about half done (most of the script, some of the art and scripting) and are aiming for a release date in September. We're using Ren'Py as the game engine, and as you can tell are using a non-anime art style. If you are interested, feel free to check out our Kickstater and Facebook pages: https://www.facebook.com/HoaHvn/ https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heartofahero/heart-of-a-hero-a-visual-novel

    hi hi! Not new, but stumbled onto this site again by accident. I was randomly active throughout 2014-2015 until my interest in VNs faded out and I decided to focus on academics instead. My classes and my work is on pause for the meantime, so hopefully I'll be able to talk to everyone here!

    Right? Tamamori is great, his conflicts are all so very human and relatable, he really carries the story as the main character well. And as the Kawase shill I am, I feel obliged to tell you his route is definitely worth more than just an extra (but yeah, it is weaker than Minakami's route, I have to admit) so hope you find it worth your time when you get around to it~ Unfortunately, the other three are just that, extras, yeah. As for myself, I'm slowly going through 428 and man, what a fun ride! The multiple protagonists thing and the very intertwined plot lines sounded confusing at first but it's actually pretty funny and rewarding to navigate on your own. The wackier the better, so I just can't not like Tama's and Minorikawa's antics and how much "destructive" for the others simple shit they pull can be (specially Minorikawa, guy can be really chaotic).

    Finished the first route of Hashihime of the Old Book Town. I'll probably wait a while before going for the other routes because i keep hearing they aren't as good and are better seen as extras. Overall i thought everything about it was amazing, from the art to the story, hell even the H-Scene was better written than what i usually see in VNs. Tamamori might be my favorite VN protagonist now, i never thought i would see a character that could take Okabe Rintarou's comedy and Kurosu Taichi's unpredictability and combine them so flawlessly.

    Round One - FIGHT!

    Hello everyone! I'm excited to find another forum dedicated to visual novels and creation of original content. I use to make a couple games with friends back when I was in highschool, and now I've decided to pick up the hobby again in the effort to regain some of those fun feelings. And because what else are we all doing during this quarantine, amirite? I'm presently looking for people to play and read through my demo! So if you're interesting in tearing into my work, hit a sis up!

    What Anime are you watching now?

    I still have such a hard time even imagining how Monogatari could work as a light novel, considering how much the shows rely on abstract visuals, cuts etc... You can do that in manga, but it must require some extremely creative writing to pull off a similar feel with mostly just text. Anyway, I'm nearly done with Bake and my previous impressions mostly stayed, it's really enjoyable in its craziness. I'm also on the exact opposite side when it goes to Senjougahara, I think she's a really cool partner for Araragi and her behaviour makes the romance pretty fun. As harsh as she might be in her words, she's really supportive towards Araragi and encourages his altruistic nature despite also being burdened by the messes he creates. Also, there was a full-on romantic episode suddenly breaking up the Hanekawa's arc and I really enjoyed how impactful it was and how it touched on some really serious themes, like Senjougahara's traumatic past being something she needs time to overcome before she can fully commit to the relationship. Monogatari formula is so wacky that it's often dangerous to dig for actual meaning in it, but the overall story is far from being random nonsense. There's some kind of balance here between the never-ending formal experiment and genuine storytelling, which is more than I'm willing to say about most "avant-garde" popculture. And the form itself is deeply unique, always introducing something new and subverting your expectations. Also, the production values and attention to detail are amazing... I mean, I'm not sure I've seen as many interesting elements in the OPs of all other shows I've seen as I did in just Bake. The fanservice is still the biggest downside, particularly when it suddenly explodes from nowhere with middle-schoolers being the focus. There were situation when I could look past it, like the tension between the protagonist and Nadeko, who clearly has a crush on him, but in most cases it's just deeply off-putting. Also, I imagine for some the core formula itself will be absolutely unwatchable, but I dig it. If not for the awful horniness and some grotesque violence that I'm not sure serves any purpose, I'd rate it extremely high. As it is now... 8/10. I'll probably take a break before I go to Nise though. This show is somewhat exhausting and I'll probably switch to some massive trash to laugh at and give my brain time to regenerate. Beatless maybe?

    Coronavirus discussion thread

    Even Germany wouldn't be able to handle the mass-spreading approach. They may have greater capacities in terms of hospital beds and ICU units than other European countries, but still way to few to be able to manage rates like Italy has right. Also Germany has few nurses per hospital bed when compared to other countries so risks like medical personnel getting infected are higher than elsewhere. Also, comparing death rates between northern Italy right now and other countries isn't really helpful. Someone pointed out earlier that an overwhelmed healthcare system causes the death rate to go way up (this very long article discussing all the statistics we knew five days ago estimates a factor of around 8 compared to a proper response). A comparison to the total amount of deaths caused by the flu doesn't make a lot of sense either as infection rates for it are so low that it doesn't spread a lot and only a small fraction of the population get it at all.

    I see, so it's basically the general idea I had. It really makes it hard to choose a VN, the only tag that helps at VNDB is "Protagonist with a face", but even that doesn't tell me whether the protag has a self-insert personality or not. While I don't like feeling like the protagonist, I do want to feel like I'm merely just an observer and influencer through his eyes.

    As I expected then! I feel like it would have made more sense to have the Ruriko route in the original, though. She's basically a main character but isn't treated as such, being present in more scenes than some of the actual heroines but automatically excluded from all romantic developments despite participating in every event. (For example, she was one of the five girls who marked her spot on Masaya's map during the stargazing event, but the only one you couldn't pick.) Doesn't matter much in the end, but I feel like they could have handled this better.

    An SSD should be fine as long as you have backups, but a lot can happen in a month so maybe you should consider doing it more frequently. I certainly learned my lessons this time, so in addition to the new drive I bought yesterday, I also signed up for a Backblaze account; something I've been contemplating for quite some time. $60 a year for unlimited data backup seems like a relatively cheap insurance in case something like this were to happen again at some point.

    What are you playing?

    I just finished Summer Pockets. What can I say... it's definitely classic Key nakige - wheter it's good or bad thing depends on the reader's attitude. I liked it. When it comes to "normal" routes, I liked them all. Shiroha's had some pacing issues, but other than that, I don't have many complaints. My favourite heroine from that part is Ao I think. Somebody somewhere said that she's a character taken out straight from Mashiro Iro Symphony - perhaps this impression is strengthened by the fact that she's drawn by Palette's Izumi Tsubasu - but I also had those impressions. She reminded me of Airi a bit. Interactions with side characters (Ryouichi, Tenzen, Nomiki, Shizuku) were also fun. True Route is split into two parts. It was highly emotional for me, even though it takes a lot from previous Key titles - there are bits of Clannad and AIR clearly visible. But I don't mind it. I really like family themes. Art is great - it's definitely the best looking Key VN, and it just looks good on its own as well. I also loved the music - it was definitely enhancing the scenes' mood. To sum it up - while I feel like it doesn't exactly reach the greatness of Clannad, AIR or LB, it's still prety close - very solid work. Therefore I'd rate it at 8.5/10 (the same as Kanon) Also, while I finished the story, I might still spend some more time with it, this time having fun with mini games
