  1. What are you playing?

    Finished MYTH last month. Definitely improved on the third chapter, I actually enjoyed myself most of the time. Overall, the game was really interesting in terms of the themes it dealt with. However, I personally didn't enjoy the writing style, it was simply too confusing and dense at times. I would have enjoyed the story more if it were written in a more traditional fashion, revealing information and plot twists to unravel the plot gradually, as opposed to leaving the reader mostly in the dark until the end. 7/10 - interesting concept for sure but just not really what I was looking for in terms of entertainment.
  2. MangaGamer 2018 Review & 2019 Licensing Survey

    I wasn't able to vote in time so I can't really complain. The only games that appeal to me from the results are Sakura no Uta, Soukou Akki Muramasa, and perhaps TRianThology. Kiss for the Petals series is okay. I don't play any otome or gameplay games so nothing much here for me to get excited about.
  3. What song do you currently play on repeat?

    Right now it's IMPERIVM by Vogel (synthwave), Who Loves the Sun by The Velvet Underground (one of my favorite songs of all time), Bigmouth Strikes Again and Money Changes Everything - both by The Smiths, and After the Flesh by My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult (industrial). Great taste, this song is phenomenal. Now if only the English patch for SayoOshi would see the light of day...
  4. I seek out games that I know suit my tastes, along with observing ratings. I've noticed that I typically rate games one score under the most commonly given score on VNDB (so if the most commonly given score for a game is an 8, I would most likely rate it a 7). Because I don't really want to waste my time on games that are just okay, I normally only play games that are most commonly rated an 8 or above on VNDB, and that have elements that I enjoy (dark themes and psychological elements, strong characters, no gameplay). I try to make my way through the "classics" that are rated the highest on VNDB, while also seeking out well-rated short games as palate cleansers (and for when I have less time available).
  5. Sad and/or bittersweet. By far. Didn't realize this until I finished the first two endings for
  6. What are you playing?

    Muv-Luv Alternative and Grisaia no Kajitsu. I started MLA right after finishing Unllimited and was really into it at first (played for 7 hours straight) but I've honestly been struggling to get back into the mood since. I know it's going to be great though. Same goes for Grisaia, I'm not a slice of life fan but the comedy is right up my alley. Not really making any progress because I'm not in a great place mentally and I want to make sure I actually enjoy both of them. I'm going to be away from my PC next week because I'm going back home for my break from Uni, going to try and finish MYTH during that time because it's the only VN I have on my Macbook. I have really mixed feelings about it, and I've heard bad things about the ending, but hopefully it'll be an enjoyable experience.
  7. Hey Fuwanovel forums! I was active on here years ago, and am back now after getting back into eroge after the release of Subahibi. I'm a big fan of eroge because I enjoy reading, and love the incorporation of art and music as effective means of storytelling. I have also started a Wordpress blog that you can check out at https://tsuinoblog.wordpress.com/. Don't know if I'll end up writing much, but I hope I do. I have a few posts planned, including the importance of music in visual novels as well as an analysis of Mio's route in A Profile - as I thought it was quite unique and have plenty of thoughts regarding the character and the complex emotions it evoked. If any of you have blogs you wanna share, drop the link and I'll follow you! I love reading different peoples' perspectives of eroge. You can read an in-depth introduction of my interests under the About section on the blog, but I'll keep it short here. I'm currently a university student studying economics, but I always make time for VNs (for better or for worse). I love more serious, thought-provoking eroge with unique plots. My favorites are Saya no Uta, G-Senjou no Maou, Subarashiki Hibi, Kikokugai -The Cyber Slayer-, Kara no Shoujo, Dra KoI, Sharin no Kuni, and A Profile. My favorite authors are Gen Urobuchi and Looseboy (In case you couldn't tell). Currently waiting for the next installment of Higurashi Kai, and reading Planetarian and Muv-Luv (Alternative here I come!). Other than eroge, I'm really into music (and my vinyl collection). My favorite genres are synthpop, post-punk, and industrial, and my favorite bands are Depeche Mode, New Order/Joy Division, Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, KMFDM, and The Electric Light Orchestra. And yes, I also frequently listen to eroge OSTs as well. Happy to be back on the forums! Feel free to hit me up if we have anything in common, I really don't have anyone to talk to about my hobbies in real life (my real life friends and boyfriend tease me about my weird Japanese games), so it's always nice to interact with people who I can relate to.
  8. Happy Birthday (\^-^/)

  9. Visual novels that deserve remakes

    Saya no Uta, a remake with an extended storyline, more BGM, and newer quality CGs.
  10. PC, definitely. However, I do appreciate having a decent amount of VNs to chose from on smartphones and tablets, because I frequently travel on planes.
  11. Pet Peeves in VNs

    I understand where companies are coming from with this, but I'd feel more justified in spending my money on a game with all plot and no filler, than a game watered down with filler, no matter how long it was. Too much filler can definitely affect my enjoyment of VNs, even ones that are flawless in all other aspects. For example, Saya no Uta, Kikokugai -The Cyber Slayer-, and Dra+KoI are all relatively short games, but they all left a lasting impact on me despite that, because the content that they did have was (in my opinion) amazing.
  12. When do you play VNs?

    I used to play and complete a new game every weekend. Now I play visual novels around once or twice every week or so for about an hour. This is mostly because of how tedious Muv-luv Extra is, I have a feeling I'll be adding a lot more play time to my schedule once I get to Alternative, if it really is as good as the members on here claim.
  13. Katawa Shoujo: To Kenji

    To be brutally honest, Kenji was the only Katawa Shoujo character I actually found to be interesting.
  14. Pet Peeves in VNs

    Personally, I really loved G-Senjou no Maou's layout, I wish there were more VNs like that. My pet peeves would be: -Games that have an interesting premise but turn out to be just nukige in disguise (I'm looking at you, Yandere). -Games that are boring and tedious but have sequels that are amazing so you have to play them (I'm pretty sure everyone on here should be able to tell what game I'm talking about here). -Sex scenes. Yes, I know that they're a big part of VNs, but I hate them (I do have some exceptions though, for example Saya no Uta did a great job of integrating its H-content into the story). -Moeblob and cookie cutter characters. -Games with slice-of-life scenes that are boring and plentiful (cough*Key*cough). -Info dumps. -Boring BGMs. BGMs are actually a huge part of VNs for me, I often listen to my favorite BGM songs after playing VNs, and beautiful BGM music has actually made me cry during parts of VNs I wouldn't normally have cried at. I think music is a great way to strengthen emotion in visual novels. And of course, my biggest pet peeve of all:
  15. Who Likes Jast USA?

    I'm pretty sure the only JAST release I've played was Saya no Uta; I like Mangagamer's lineup a lot more. Sure, Mangagamer puts out a ton of moege/nukige, but when they decide to put out more deep/serious titles, they chose amazing ones to translate.
