    While the duology isn't new to people who have a PS4 and played the games, the cruising onto PC on Steam is a big thing for those of you who prefer to do everything with their computer (including me). A few days ago, these two games, which are very much a treat for those who liked the original game or anime, became available. For those who have only watched the Utawarerumono animes (both of them), Mask of Deception covers the same area of the story as the second anime, albeit in more detail with some changes. My personal opinion of it was that it was great... but I found myself wanting H-scenes about halfway through (too many mimikko and those mischievously erotic twins). The second game (Mask of Truth/Futari no Hakuoro) is considerably more serious than the first from the beginning until the end. As such, it provides quite a different experience. For those who were annoyed by the sudden way the second Utawarerumono anime ended, this is a good way to see the rest. For those who have already played both... well why not do so again? I know I will.

    Hello everyone ^^. I'm back with another update. Now, before we move onto the progress update, I have another members update XD. Yuuko Shionji and Dark_Gamer have joined us as the editor and TL checker respectively ^^. Our team has become quite big now, hasn't it? XD With their help, I'm sure the final patch will be in a much better shape than the partial patch, so please look forward to it ^^. Now, on to the progress: - For the TLC/edit: Zones, stages, gods medals and many others other files have been TLC-ed and edited. - For the images: Images for zones', stages' and characters' names, as well as many others, have been edited. The god medals are also half-way edited. We seriously blasted through the backlog with all the new members, didn't we? lol Before ending the update, I have a small warning for everyone using our partial patch. Thanks to @desdevilize, a crash has been found in Mistoria's normal ending. While I haven't received any other report, this crash may extend to other endings as well. If you encounter this crash, you can delete 'SC0450.bin' from the root directory of the game to progress through the crash. However, since that is the translation file for the epilogue, the epilogue will be in Japanese if you do so. I am very sorry for the trouble. I'm looking into this crash right now, and will update the patch the moment the problem is resolved. So please bear with me until then. Oh, and one more thing, for the people asking if we're doing another project... I'm very sorry, but we have nothing to announce at the moment. I mean, this project isn't even completed yet XD. I'll be sure to make an announcement regarding any potential future project, so please wait until then. Thank you ^^. Well, that's about it for this update. Thank you for reading and see you next time ^^. And for the people celebrating Lunar New Year, an early Happy Lunar New Year! XD

    Hey, what's up? Here's some updates for the project: Patricia's second H-scene, and another script after it which was removed, are done. Total lines done: 1287 out of 8586. Rounded up, that's 15% done so far! Editing is currently sitting at roughly 9%. Like Zeph said, much of our team was busy for the holidays, myself included, but we should be picking our pace soon. Here's hope next update we can bring it to 30%.

    Hey, your VNDB list is... Quite something. Anyway, I think I have a different problem, because as I'm getting old(er) and becoming more of certified failure at life, reading coming-of-age high school stories becomes kind of taxing. The heroines themselves though, they only rarely feel like actual highschoolers. For example, if I remember well, the main cast of Flowers are all high school freshmen, so 15-years-olds. However, they neither look nor act the part. The notion of age is all so abstract in both VNs and much of anime that I'll probably have to get much older to start feeling that dissonance. On the other hand, I don't really get off to otaku media in the first place, so the "cute little animal" kind of appeal shouldn't spoil my enjoyment. I'll skip the h-scenes either way and the romance should still be satisfying enough.

    Greetings from China!

    Hi! I just discovered this community and joined right away. I live in North China, and have been a fan of VN (and anime, manga etc. as well) for a couple of years. Recently I've been reading Saihate no Ima, which I really think is a fantastic work, although I've only finished Azusa's and Sayaka's route. Feeling touched by the work, I decided to translate it (into Chinese, and maybe into English someday if still no one does it by then). But I don't have the knowledge of unpacking and repacking the game archive, so I joined to get some help. I speak fluent English and Japanese. In fact I've been learning Classical Japanese, so I'm quite confident in reading difficult texts. Anyway, Douzo yoroshiku onegai itashimasu.

    Damn I'm not even that much of an old hag yet but I feel this thread, this one game I started recently made me go all mom to the high and middle school kids like "I want to adopt them then pat their head, brush their hair and ask how was their day at school" while going all THIRST for those anime dudes in his late 20s early 30s thicc asses so I like ousans now thanks for coming to my ted talk

    I would wait for the remake or play the ero-capable PC version. It's your choice. The original on PC is a pretty awesome story, but the game system is pretty third-rate, even by the standards of the age (to give you an example, the only two characters who could inflict serious damage on enemies at the end in my party were Karura and Hakuoro, lol). Until I play the remake (which I plan to do), I'm unwilling to state which is better. However, Utawarerumono was one of those games where the ero actually 'fit', at least in some cases, so I honestly don't know how I'm going to feel at the end. Edit: Incidentally, the reason my damage was so low with the others was because I was pretty careless with how I handled stat points, lol. However, I was able to beat the last boss with those two alone, so it all worked out in the end, hahahaha.

    So, I mentioned this in another thread but I'm currently reading Fata Morgana and dear lord, they weren't lying when they said it's a VN about people suffering. Just finished door 7 and that was really painful. Much like a lot of VNs I rated in the 9s it have pure sadness backstories so it's looking good for the final score of FataMoru. And from those feelings that comes my question. Who are the characters that you think that suffered so much you can't help but want to protect them from all evil? Or well, characters that have the most awful backstories that even if they deserved it because they're awful themselves you still feel pity for them? Alternatively, I know some people might not like to go through stories that aren't only happy feelings all around, then did you ever felt like crying because some route outcome was so so happy and so so satisfying or is it just me? Let's relive those tragedies, bring me your tears.

    Hello everyone!

    Hi~ I joined just now, though I've known of Fuwanovel for quite a while. ^^; My name is Ethan and I love VNs, dating sims, and Japanese games in general. I am currently working on my own VNs (BL/Yaoi) and I hope to someday help bring more VNs and Japanese games in general to English. I struggle to keep up the motivation to learn Japanese, though... so it'll be a while... It's nice to meet you! Feel free to send me a message, I would love to meet some people that are also interested in VNs.

    I am writing this post because after much thought, I have decided to delete all accounts with this username. I accidentally posted a compromising screenshot at a different site(if you seen the screenshot I am talking about, can you please not mention it here) , and after debating internally for awhile, by continuing to use this profile, I have gave up my privacy. I don't think anyone who seen that screenshot would try to harm me, but I am a firm believer in privacy. I think anyone who has been on the net for long enough would agree. I will delete my account after 72 hours, than will remain a non-member for a bit. I have never been a very active member of this forum, but have been a member since 2015, so this is a very sad day for me. I hope to talk to you all soon, under a different alias. Have a good Life, for alchemicalhaze will die forever, and be reborn as ???????????, not even I Know the answer to that yet. Goodbye

    I used to mainly care about how appealing the looks of the heroines are and only care about personalities when it came to chemistry with the protagonist, but as i got older the anime traits of high-school heroines made me see them more as small animals rather than girls i'd actually bang. Has anyone else experienced something similar?

    I'd say not liking characters is a valid reason not to get romantically involved with them. Not sure if you're joking about the special ending. For what it's worth Rika was surprisingly second best girl after Misaki for me. Her route doesn't have many scenes to blow you out of the water, but it feels really genuine. For me it felt like Misaki was the center of the VN, she had the backstory, she had all the impactful moments, she even had a fangirl to make things even more about her, so the competition was kinda rigged from the beginning.

    Maybe, but the main reason I'm finally not attracted to high-schoolers is perhaps their behaviour. So I might see cute or hot girl and feel attracted, but that lasts only until she speaks (Actually that extends to other age groups of course. For me the way of speaking, and general behaviour is very major factor of attraction - perhaps even more important than appearance)

    It would be weird if they weren't. I've yet to meet a heterosexual man, regardless of age (unless they were impotent), who didn't have an interest in 18 year old girls, even if he didn't have any intention of doing anything about it. Males are predisposed toward it. Moreover, eroge girls are eternally young and far more attractive than filthy 3D females. *smiles innocently*

    I often thought about it. I feel like in many aspects (relationships included) I haven't grown up, whatever that means. I have quite weird (?) memory, as I'm still remembering school days like it was maybe a year ago, not over 20. Also, never being in a romantic relationship, I kind of didn't have the opportunity to "progress", I'm still at level 0. I often still feel like that shy 17-18 yo I was back then. So while I'm mostly not attracted to actual high-schoolers for various reasons, I can relate pretty easily to characters in JVN high-school settings. Also, because I've been kind of "frozen" for the last 20 years, I have somewhat skewed age perception. By that I mean, that when I think a girl is just a few years younger than me, she turns out to actually be 18-19, when I think she's roughly my age, she's often actually in her mid 20s, and when I look at girls that actually are my age, I often feel like they are much older than me Back to VNs - while, like I said above, I can relate to high-school characters, I also can appreciate adult settings. I loved The Language of Love.

    You're probably in your thirties lol. It'd be weird if you were attracted to girls that are 20 years younger than you.

    Personality-wise, I am tired of the 'usual' archetypes like osananajimi variations and the like. I'm also tired of high schools as settings. However, if you ask me whether I can still get it up for them... the answer is yes. Most of them are no longer waifu material though, lol.

    The routes diverge sooner and to a higher degree the further you get into the game, so there will be less overlap between them. You have to read most flashbacks again though with little additional content added once you finish the fourth route.

    What are you playing?

    Just wanted to stress, that it is a decidedly parodistic comedy VN and if it has the choice between taking an emotional story scene to its conclusion and making a joke out of it, it will opt for the later. I haven't read Lamunation so I can't make the comparison yet on how things are done there, but I have read Fureraba and it felt very different in what the VN set out to do, since Fureraba tries to be fun in a wholesome slice of life kind of way (mostly) and Sankaku Renai (mostly) pokes fun at story/setting/character tropes of charagames, (and otaku fandom in general) while going through the motions of being a super basic charagame itself. The intent (as I perceived it) was pretty different and that was the main point I wanted to make, sorry if I make it more difficult than it needs to be, but for me that's an important distinction. It correlates to charage like Undertale does to classic RPGs and Bakemonogatari does to harem anime, but without having as much insight and instead having fun with the theme in general.

    What are you playing?

    Love Triangle Trouble is most certainly not a set of random skits with no connection to each other, if that's what you fear. It's the daily life of a club, some things happen with a character moving into the protagonist's home, once that's settled with them all feeling like family again the the protagonist gets into a love triangle (in that two people are interested in him and aware of one another) and finally he makes his choice, resolving the drama by subverting expectations. Finally there's a couple of hours of them as a couple but it's basically just an excuse for h-scenes. Still, romance! It is no more random than something like Fureraba in its plot, but it has decidedly less romance, I think.

    Been awhile since Ao's patch route released, and yes this time we have Kamome's patch released (I know that I'm late for this, because they released this back at Sunday). Go get the patch from their site as usual, and have fun. As for the future plan, obviously it's to translate the true route (ie Alka and Pocket) and currently they already have five script files translated. With this we have all four heroines routes translated, and if you want to play it because of the heroines then perhaps this is the best time to play Summer Pocket here (In this case, have fun).

    Which Switch Game Should I Play?

    Three Houses is pretty good. Finished 3 of 4 routes and waiting for the third wave of DLC to finish the one I'm missing. If you liked it, you might want to try FE Awakening for the 3DS.

    Which Switch Game Should I Play?

    I experienced the controls issue as well, but sure enough, it eventually resolved. Also, I don't know if this is a common issue, but I failed to realize for a very long time that physically moving the controller/Switch adjusts your aim when using a bow, and upon realizing this, my marksmanship finally stopped sucking. Also, please don't go around talking to everyone and doing every darn side quest. Open worlds are meant for freedom and adventure, not completionism.

    Im just on chapter 4 so idk how long is this compared to kamidori but bgm on this VN is easily better than kamidori... like damn... i know this VN is about musics somewhat but i don't expected it to be this level... the battle music is god tier like wtf.. remind me so much on some ys/trail bgm.. last time i hyped so much about bgm in VN is when i read Umineko.. and thats really a long time ago.. Thats why im very grateful to this team for give me chance to play this awesome game..

    Since this is a spin-off, it's fine to read it without any prior knowledge, but you might not appreciate the characters as much, and, as wyldstrykr said, some references will go over your head. I still think you should read the original trilogy first though, simply because it's awesome (or at least it was to me). Grisaia no Kajitsu is by far the best out of the three, but the sequels are still worthwhile reads, although they're not nearly as good as the first one.

    The way it goes is if you're close range and not holding down the movement buttons but have already used the close range attack it will use the attack that is listed below it in the equipment menu and if that one is also used, the one below that etc. It can be rather helpfull once you get used to it since you can't use an attack again until your heat gauge has depleted anyway.

    The only really challenging battle on normal is the final battle of Dive 2... the rest can be handled fairly easily if you have a good combo set up, with fairly minor adjustments for tactics on occasion. I won't make any suggestions on combos, because this game provides a decent array of weapons/attacks that can be stringed together in ways that suit your temperament. In my case, I used the basic sub-machine guns, homing missiles, and the grenade launcher the most.

    If you press the same button several times, it switches to a different type of attack. I don't remember the exact sequence, but if it starts with a short-range attack, it will later switch to a long range. There will be more tutorials soon, so that will be explained.

    Most disappointing VNs of 2019?

    Chaos;Child sits quite high on vndb and got quite a few glowing reviews, so I didn't really expect it to be an experience bordering on so-bad-it's good. It's incredibly entertaining, but at least in the second half for all the wrong reasons. Its setup was promising enough, but at some point the story just took the worst and most convoluted turn imaginable every time. It felt like the creators had five different clashing ideas about where they wanted to take the story and what themes they wanted to explore and just decided to do them all at the same time anyway. I finished the VN about 11 months ago and still catch myself thinking about how stupid it was, so at least I can't say it didn't leave an impression on me.

    In the original “Roadwarden’s” Design Document, there were no game-overs. You could get significantly hurt during your journeys, but never to the point where you’d face a brick wall that would make the further progress impossible. You need to rest and heal your wounds to participate in some events, but you can always move forward. I’ve finally decided to change it. In most situations, reaching 0 HP won’t result in an instant death. But in some scripted encounters - usually when facing an overwhelming opponent while being completely unprepared - your character will be broken. Still, I hope to make it as player-friendly as possible. Did you forget to save your game? Was autosave ran in an inconvenient spot? You can jump back in time a bit, no strings attached. The game now also involves some new systems, like a redesigned “armor level”. I’ll talk more about it in the next devlog.
