    Fuwanovel Confessions

    The answer is probably yes, because I do the same thing and I am in fact a bad person. Confession: Sometimes, I place my Dog on top my lap (leaning back against my belly), grab her ears and proceed to make motorcycle noises, while slighly moving her head around. Whenever my mom sees that, she starts laughing her ass off.

  2. Katana are from the land of glorious Yamato whose superior bunka (tl note: bunka means culture) the mere likes of you westerners can't even begin to understand. They are superior weapons made of superior metal folded over a thousand times by the masterful nippon artisans. They are wielded by the samurai, whose code of budou, martial arts and philosophy of mono no aware far surpass the petty warriors of the west. If you can't recognize the superiority of katanas you're nothing but a baka gaijin.

    ... I've created an account. I'm actually around lurking the forums for a few years now, but since I was mostly active in the MangaGamer forums I always hesitated to create an account here since I prefer to have at least 'some' presence in one forum instead of no presence in many forums. Unfortunately, the MangaGamer forums suffer from 'Down Syndrome' for quite a while now and I'm slowly beginning to believe that they axed it for good. I was even worried that the Fuwa forums got infected too, considering they were down a few times too recently. Creating the account was already an adventure of

  7. http://www.yano.co.jp/press/pdf/1489.pdf On January 15, Yano Research (矢野経済研究所) released the summary part of their Otaku Market Report 2015 (「オタク」市場に関する調査結果 2015). This report estimated otaku-related market size of 2014 by calculating domestic end user retail prices. Overall, the otaku market is expected to increase except a few fields (分野) like Adult Games (アダルトゲーム) which observed to decline. There are two fields in this report that are related to visual novels: adult games and date simulation games. Adult games are defined as computer games that aims to attract players by se

  8. There's one way for this situation to improve in the Western market also: Steam needs to stop greenlighting all these fucking trash OELVNs and shitty ass third party titles. By getting all this low quality crap sold in the market, it's giving visual novels in general a bad name and making people think: Oh it's just a bunch of anime girls and boobs and all this nonsense assumptions.

    What are you playing?

    @Deep Blue guess thats been i who told you to start reading it along kawazakike2. liked it alot, despite beeing abit aged by now. loved especially how the mc creeped the living hell out of a heroine due to him behaving quite lovingly, which came pretty close to what i expect from a protagonist in general. edit. in terms of dark themes, there´s still rasen kairou2 awaiting you, or try out omega no shikai what i´ve been doing right now. heck even fairytale requiems content is pretty dark at times, despite its somewhat overly cute appearance.

  12. As everyone already know, MoeNovel released crippled EN version of popular in Japan game Kono Oozora ni, Tsubasa wo Hirogete. Both translation quality and removal of significant portion of game provide substandard experience to EN auditory, not worth the money they ask for it. So here comes our project to fix at least some of these problems. First patch released! Notes for patch: 1. Japanese locale needed! 2. On Windows 7/8 you have to install game OUTSIDE of Program Files directory or use fixed bat files! 3. One 100-lines script on Ageha route missed QC and editor there used [] instea

  13. Hello ladies and gentlemen of fuwa! Today I will be sharing with you a little writing project I've been working on. Thanks so much to Forgetful Frank for agreeing to edit the book for me! When I started I was editing it myself, which is slow work and I often miss mistakes in my own writing, and so this way it should be a lot better for everyone involved Also, a big thanks to Melowbee for making the illustration for Kitsune! It's a wonderful confidence boost to actually have someone make drawings for my story! On to the book: キツネと私 - Kitsune and me Summar

    The Journey For Salami

    Reposting because I can. Roughly 6 months ago, a man, who I will name OriginalRun for identity protection purposes, put up an interesting ad offering part of his figurine collection. Initially I did not think much of this, but after a couple of scrolls, a particular piece caught my gaze. Little did I know the second I laid eyes upon that PVC lavender haired girl I had just begun laying down the path of one of the worst journeys I have ever went on. Who was this girl, you ask? Well that was none other than Sasasasasasasegawa Salami, otherwise known as the best Little Busters girls and the

I do not know what constitutes as a spoiler to you, so if you find things like whether or not there is a confession scene or how far the couple goes to be a spoiler, please avoid reading my comments. NOTE: Written in the wee hours of the night. Grammatical mistakes and logical incongruences may follow. Itazura na Kiss - As far as anime goes, this is the epitome of long-lasting romance. This anime does not simply go until the confession, or until the fir

  19. The vn repeating a lot of what happened in the anime has put me off playing it honestly. Although I liked the anime a lot. I don't really have the patience to re-watch/read scenes I've already seen in the anime. I am hoping if/when the 2nd beat will come out it will be more original content. And someone will describe a summary of the first beat or something so you know what new happened in the first beat.

  21. I abandoned anime and only watch maybe 1-3 series every month. Kinda pointless to get into them if they have visual novel/manga versions and those are just way better mediums because they tell you the whole story and arent affected by shitty production decisions.

  28. Danganronpa 2, just about finished with Chapter 1's trial *Sigh* I get what they're trying to do with his character, but Nagito is a complete disgrace to The Ultimate Lucky Student title. Other than that DR2's goin' pretty well, I like this cast. and the new mechanics in the Class Trials are welcomed. Shame about the first vic though >.> he was a pretty interesting version of him.

  31. The funny thing is, chuunige are evenly popular amongst the sexes. I found that to be hilarious... People that like them, like them regardless of gender. Probably because the birth of chuunige was a result of the human condition, lol.

  32. I don't know why people are surprised. More women read than men, women read more than men, romance is popular with ladies, and otomes are on handhelds a lot of the time removing the 'PC' element from the equation, so seems like a reasonable result.

    Japanese Help Thread

    You read that too fast. It's rather "If (it's 頼まれたら) someone called and said 'There was an accident. Come over and bring a change of clothes' (持って applies to 着替え which is therefore a change of clothes rather than the action of changing clothes), I would feel like complaining (言いたい+なる, there's probably a better way to say it but it's not a negative nor a potential), you know... (to render the nuance of the わよ)' And yeah guys, try to post the line before and after the one you don't understand and a very basic idea of what's going on in the scene, it really helps.

  36. Broadswords being made to 'smash or cut' is as incorrect as the myths about the katana. Actually, most broadswords were light compared to katanas (unless they were ceremonial). They were double bladed, compared to katanas which had a wedge (obviously heavy), and so two handed longswords were longer and weighed about the same as a 2 handed katana (speaking in generalities.) Broadswords were made to cut and thrust. There's a whole bunch of European one handed swords named 'cut and thrust' swords, for a specific reason. Armour was heavy, and people wouldn't wear it unless it was effective.

  42. Piracy is a problem, yes, but a far bigger problem is that the industry overexpanded and dropped significantly in quality the past few years. Like the anime industry, I expect we'll see a period of contraction as lesser companies and fringe studios go out of business. When the market stabilizes, more new studios will appear, there'll be more new and interesting games, and the industry will grow again (until the next bust cycle). Remember, 2015 averaged 75-100 mid to major releases a month, with that many or more little doujin releases added on. That's still a LOT of games.

  44. Fantastic! I'm always really happy to hear of new fan projects being started. I find it very interesting that you're translating it from Finnish to English and then you're going to go through it with the Japanese script. So you can speak Finnish (native language I presume?) and in order to improve your English you're going to be translating it from Finnish to English, and on top of that you can understand Japanese? Very, very amazing to think about and I wish you all the best on your project. I'll be keeping an eye out and promise to read it when it's finished. So I'm pretty new to the VN

What, never of heard of Paradise Heights? Come on, it was all the rage back in the 56k dial up days! https://vndb.org/v1012 Sadly, to make the game downloadable for the...ahem...community...the voices were removed, and those 56k piracy-friendly versions remain the only versions of the game available. I've been wanting to buy the games of that era just to have them on the shelf in my library if for no other reason, with no

  48. I'm all for H-scenes until they're actually happening. Then it's just 'ugh, I can't wait for this irritating fuckfest to be over so I can actually continue with things.' Annoyingly though, I like the idea of 'couple-based' H-scenes (like, two people forming a relationship) because sometimes the sentiment behind it's really nice, so I don't turn H-scenes off in case they're actually relevant. That said, any H-scene which goes mouth/vagina/bum (or anything in that order...) in one go is either gratuitous and annoying, or so hilariously bad that the very idea of popping a cock-rocket is impos
