    Oooh, my parents are some purists and slightly homophobic, so it could lead to aaaaaaaaaaaall kinds of embarrassing situations! But that didn't stop me to play VNs in the only computer in the house before I had one for myself. And this story start with Comyu, of all things! Me and my sister were reading Benio's route and thought it was okay because the porn mostly happened in the love hotel, so if that background appeared, we just have to close it and pretend nothing happened. Except Rondo's h-scene starts out of nowhere!!! And my mom was sitting some five meters behind us, in a place she could definetly see the computer's screen... She was half asleep, so she didn't noticed, but boy I don't remember what I hit first, the mouse to click elsewhere or my sister because she was with the mouse at the time and didn't clicked elsewhere fast enough. My life is now three years shorter because of the scare.

    Hello again, you degenerates. Today, instead of trashing one specific part of VNs, why not tackle everything wrong with VN localization companies in general? Mainly doing this because I feel like shitting on the reason I even get good VNs in the first place. Well, here we go. No turning back from here Mangagamer is easily my favourite localization company, yet this doesn't mean they don't have problems. First of all, the low pay that their editors apparently get. Editors do a lot more work than they're given credit for and unfortunately, they don't get enough respect and it shows in their paychecks. Also, maybe respect the opinions of beta testers more than you actually do. Damn, Mangagamer isn't that appreciative of jobs that catch mistakes before release, huh. This last one is a personal complaint for 2018. Stop flooding the market with so much moege. I get that you need to make money and all, but seriously. The amount of companies popping up that have been dedicated to this stale genre is quite appalling. I do respect this company the most though. My many complaints will be saved for later. JAST is my second target and there's a lot to talk about with these guys. So much so that I'll split them up into numbered sections. Make a damn release schedule. This company is the epitome of dropping a VN on people without so much as a release date at times. They're an incredibly unreliable company when it comes to knowing when things will come out. Hence all the memes about them. Check their translations before putting out terrible demos. The Flowers debacle definitely didn't put the company's image in a good light and made us question whether or not Makoto was their only competent translator that they have hired at the moment. Luckily, they added Meru to fix up the next edition in that series. #FreeMakoto Release another worthwile Nitroplus game in this century. They've got such an amazing license in them and it's completely wasted on such a botched company. #FreeMakoto Hire more worthwile translators for their projects. Then maybe we'll get more than 1 or 2 VNs a year from them. Sekai Project. Well well well. There's a lot to complain about here. I'm sure @Barry Benson would agree. Well, let's get on with it. Stop using Kickstarters as a safety net. It shows that they clearly don't believe that the VNs you localize will sell well and that doesn't give VN companies a very good image of them. Make an actual release schedule. Same criticism as with JAST Check their translations. The fact that two botched translations came out in the same month is telling of how much they care about quality, and that needs to change. Manage their localization projects better. It's because of these recent blunders that shine light on how terrible their project management is at the moment. If they're not gonna be able to handle projects well, why get so many licenses? There's no point in handling as many projects as they have when they can't even properly release a quality translation. SoL Press and NekoNyan Soft Make sure to earn our trust. I'm usually extremely pessimistic about new VN localization companies popping up with some sort of ambition and both SoL Press and NekoNyan (God I hate that name) have questionable English in their demos and/or synopsis' and a certain reputation of certain people involved in said new companies. Mikandi is associated with SoL Press and we all know how botched their first release was. NekoNyan has people involved that worked on the botched releases of Saku Saku and Hoshimemo and that makes them untrustworthy to me. Sure, none of these companies have currently released a full fledged VN yet, but it's hard to trust them knowing the reputation behind both companies. If your companies really want to show ambition in your aim to localize VNs, maybe focus on more than just moege. It's hard to see any sort of ambition if all they're trying to localize is something the VN market is already oversaturated with. Even 1 or 2 more VNs with more of a plot emphasis would definitely show me that you're targeting more than just one audience. To me, it's hard to care about a company that only has VNs of one genre planned for release at the moment. I'm hoping they improve on this in the future, but at the moment, this is a major problem with these companies. Well, that took me way too long to write, but my negativity knows no bounds. Post your criticism of VN companies as well because I may have missed some points in my tangents. (I realize that this was a massive waste of time, but oh well)

    For me it would have to be the time I was looking through Maggot Baits CGs at school, in what I thought was an empty classroom. The students behind me didn't say anything, but I think they were scarred for life.

    You know, whilst this thread initially brought to mind to people running into me in the midst of an H-Scene, that is likely not the worst situation. When I'm particularly excited reading a VN I act like an absolute madman. I often read the characters' lines aloud, shout, make up new ones, react to them, etcetera. This, unfortunately, is quite audible in my younger sister's room, so she's the person most subjected to my lunacy. My parents occasionally walk by the corridor near my room, and should they catch me in the middle of a fit they sometimes even interrupt to ask me what the bloody hell I'm doing.

    My dad walked in on me fapping to a h scene. He only noticed the fapping luckily and didn't notice the h scene. Hence I can continue with my degenerate hobby.

    Wow, this thread is pure gold. My story will be super tame compared to some of those above, but stil... I was reading the all-ages Sonohana spin-off, you know, one that doesn't even have much romance in it, and decided to finish it in the morning before my gf wakes up. So, obviously she woke up earlier than usual and walked into my room exactly at the beginning of the only kissing scene in the whole game. Maybe I looked unreasonably engrossed in the romantic conclussion of the story, but the look she gave me nearly made me wish I was cought reading some actual porn. Hmmm... I think I have to go through that scene again, I couldn't really focus when finishing the read that day. :]

    I was reading an H-scene that other time and you could say that I was "engrossed" in it. My older brother walked into my room and he started silently at me and the screen for a full minute or so without saying anything. Then he sat through the whole scene next to me and left when it finished without saying a word. I still see the disappointment in his eyes each time he looks at me.

    My father opened my minimised VN that was in the middle of an H-Scene. His non-reaction makes it seem like he didn't even realise what it was. Could be, since he was looking for something else and immediately minimised it once he realised it wasn't what he was looking for.

    Which VN should i read?

    Oh, well... You know, you should think this over. I know that these 3 might seem like your only options right now, but there's always a way out. For example, you can jump off a bridge. -------------------------- But, putting tasteless shitposting aside, Yosuga no Sora looks most interesting out of those two (please, don't touch Hoshimemo until they fix it, unless you're going for the original version), but it seems to only have a partial patch available? Do you mean to read it in Japanese?

    Kiss for the petals order?

    Yes and No! You don't have to force yourself to play all Couples. Just play the ones you like. In Maidens of Micheal you can choose the Routes anyway. Furthermore read A Kiss For The Petals - Remembering How We Met before you start with Maidens of Micheal because it tells the Story how Risa and Miya met and became a couple. Therefore: Read all or the couples you like ---> Remembering how we met ---> Maidens Micheal. Adittionally I would recommend you also to read Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke o - New Gen!. I really liked the Sister-Incest-Route. But it isn't a sequel!

    I once played Chaos;Head on my laptop at my parents' house, while sitting next to my mum... Bear in mind this was the first vn I read and I wasn't too aware of its content. I quite quickly noped out of there. I'm sure my parents have their suspicions about me the figure collection also doesn't help.

    Kiss for the petals order?

    The link above is the best route to approach the SonoHana games. While there are not a ton of things you REALLY have to know (because "Maidens of Michael" does a good job reintroducing the couples—enough to help you understand why they are where they are), I would definitely recommend playing all of the games in the order mentioned in that link. "Maidens of Michael", chronologically speaking, does come before "Remembering How We Met" (which is actually a sequel to the as-of-yet untranslated 15th game "Snow White's Knight", which you'll notice a previous Best Couple is missing (Rena/Runa can't be a best couple for reasons you either already know about or will find out in "Maidens of Michael") and has been replaced with a new one) and "New Generation!" "New Generation!" in particular takes place after all of the previous Best Couples (including Sayuki and Rikka) are graduated and off doing whatever it is they decide to do. So there's actually a pretty large time window involved here. Also, if you organize the game releases by date on VNDB, you'll get the same recommended playing order, honestly. "Maidens of Michael" is the eleventh game of the series.

    Mangagamer only got to this point after a lot of hit and misses. Not everyone may remember that, but they even released Kara no Shojo without voices, along with bad translations for Higurashi and a LOT of cheap nukige. If I were to start a company now, I'd also go into the easy road of moeges before I could start doing better stuff. So for those two new companies, we need to be patient and supportive as long as they show us a good product. It's not just you, Virgin; lately, a lot of people are voicing their complaints about moeges here in Fuwa, but most of the arguments are just based in their own opinions. Most of those who complain don't even read nor buy the games, so what is the point of bashing them? And trust me, I know how it is to be against trends, and how frustrating it is to see a whole library full of crap instead of quality works. In my case, I refer to the boom that youtubers got in Brazil, to the point that they nowadays are as influential as politicians (my opinion), although they are pretty much shit. But the time I could spend complaining about it every time I pass in front a library, I spend looking into things that actually are worth my time. And in our case here, for each moege MG releases, they have at least one great game released alongside it. In a perfect world, we'd have only what we like being released. However, we have to cope with what is available right now, and I emphasize "now" because if you take a look into what we had localised in 2013 and what we have now, less than 5 years after, you'll see that, for sure, in the near future, there will be way more and better titles released.

    Winter 2018 Anime discussion

    Well I consider 12-13 episodes too short for a serious watch. I think optimal is around 50 episodes to tell a great story, and to tell a shorter story with impact more like half that.

    I'd be interested in testing for sure, although as I said I'm really new to the whole VN scene and can't understand most of the tools used for it, so you'll have to explain to me how to setup everything I need and so on! But I'd really like to for sure!

    Yeah, definitely wasn't being serious there. VN localization isn't a zero-sum game. I feel like I may have accidentally come off as one of those morons who gets angry when the stars align and once per millennium one of these companies releases an otome game. Truth is, I like to see the VN localizing companies bringing over a variety of stuff, even when it's not all specifically to my taste, since I think it makes them more likely to thrive and thus to continue to bring over the things that actually are to my taste. Though I really do want them to get more softhouse-seal GRANDEE porn, that's some good shit.

    Yukatool problem

    I called it from the command line and inputted the basic syntax. But it doesn't run so I'm probably doing something wrong. Do I have to drag the .ykc file into the command prompt or something else? Do I have to do something additional aside from just copying what you wrote? Sorry if I'm asking too many questions, I'm clueless when it comes to things like this.

    This is a topic that could be endless, mainly because this discussion is complex and there are many things that have to be considered when talking about companies. You are right in everything you say but blaming their game choices is a weak argument imo. Apart from that, the least favourite thing these companies do is existing in the first place.

    The same way you are supposed to show a slice of life without a scene where the characters poop, I guess. Don't get me wrong, I also appreciate a well written h-scene, as few as they are, but stating that you cannot do without them is an overstatement imo.
