  1. Hihi~ I just made a guide that explains all the -ge visual novel terms. I am aware there are many other guides for that out there, and many of them were discussed before, but I tried to make mine more detailed and easier to understand. Specially for people new to visual novel who came from Anime world (and they are many). Hope my guide is to your liking, and it's the definite guide I want it to be, and of course, any feedback about it is welcome. Here's the link for my guide:- https://SweetMonia.com/The-Lost-Konpeitos/a-guide-for-visual-novel-terms-genres-charage-moege-plotege

  2. Childhood marriage promise. Imagine not only remembering but also taking seriously some dumb shit you said at an age where you were still eating sand off the playground.

  3. I hate childhood friends routes, they're so samey, bland and boring.

  4. Just wondering. Feel free to pick some broad terminology, like "bullying" or "mysterious identity" (or call them tropes if you feel like that term fits what I'm describing better). I'm going to take a guess here and say that a lot of respondents would pick the infamous "love triangle", which I personally don't mind as much. The top of my own list of infamy would definitely be "incurable disease", but I am also very tired of "arranged marriage"- and "heroine has to move away"-stories. - Keep in mind that you can dislike a premise at it's core, even if you read such stories and th

  5. https://j-addicts.de/master-magistrate/ After a couple months of wait, the full version of Master Magistrate was released! This review is an update of my early-access review. I removed or corrected outdated information, polished my thoughts a little and added my thoughts on the final chapter and the epilogue. Master Magistrate is a pretty cool murder mystery detective visual novel with a historical setting.You'd be hard pressed to find something quite like it, the closest would probably be Great Ace Attorney or Elf's Mikagura Shoujo Tanteidan. Overall, it has a bit of a weak start wi

  6. Might want to take the 'e' out of plotge. *smiles dryly* A small correction on moege vs charage... moege is a generalized term for all games that carry the 'stylized cuteness' that is 'moe'. As such, similar to charage, it is closer to an umbrella term than an actual genre. If one were to show a family tree, it would show that charage and nakige both come from moege but sometimes edge themselves out of the larger umbrella. Charage are a product of the mid-2000's, whereas moege and nakige first began to appear just before the turn of the century as they dragged themselves out from the

  7. The type of plot where a character is ostracized in school for literally any reason. 100% of the time, this is because of rumors or some fabrications. I have never come across a story where a character gets into this scenario for a remotely valid reason, but then again - I don't think this kind of story about someone who's in fact worthy of being an outcast is all that common (because such stories generally involve clearing the character's name and putting an end to all of that). I generally dislike this story because they always use a random side character or a group of them (this group

  8. I don't think they'll ever do that, and honestly they are not that bad when you get used to them. I mentioned them because they usually have this trope, but I think they're very good on handling those.

  10. Oh, this is weird. I can't think of any tropes that were overused to the point that I hate them. I believe that since I usually read story-focused games [which doesn't make me better than anyone] instead of romance-focused ones, I never get into the risk of reading more of the same - thus, i can't think of an example to add to the topic. I actually like "incurable disease" when the VN focuses on getting through it and in the drama instead of "loving no matter what". I've just finished watching Air [spoiler? I mean, I can't talk about it without naming it lol] after reading the VN a few ye

  11. It's because OriginalRen is no longer with us. In the end, we were all here for the opportunity to court him.

  12. https://fuwanovel.net/reviews/2017/11/15/karakara-2/ I actually really like this series. It's not deep or anything, but it reliably delivers the goods. Also, what's not to like about a kemonomimi harem?
