  2. Is this anywhere close to what you're looking for?
  3. What are you playing?

    Finished ChuSinGura 46+1. Might have been one of the worst finales i've ever seen. It's a shame because the first 4 chapters were pretty good.
  4. What are you playing?

    If you get sick of it, at least play Prologue of Grisaia before dropping it completely, because i actually liked it better than the main story.
  5. E

  6. VN girl

    That reminds me, does anyone know how good Moshiraba is? The only opinion i've heard of it is that the prologue is the best part by far.
  7. Gahkthun in a nutshell

    Is it a botanic location of great height as well?
  8. Never watched this series, but from the summary i saw on wikipedia, the closest things to it would probably be Shiori's route from Kanon and the final route from Himawari The Sunflower. There's a recent untranslated one with something like that, but i never played it so i can't attest to its' quality.
  9. G-Senjou No Maou Question (SPOILERS!!)

    During chapter 4, there is literally one line where Yuki said she slept in Maou's place once. I don't know know why he would allow it (maybe he was trying to get some), but the explanation is there.
  10. This is more of something that popped in my head, but i believe the OELVN scene is more or less where the JPVN scene was in 1995, so i thought of comparing the more notable OELVNs with probable japanese equivalent from the 90's. I would go something like this: Katawa Shoujo is the equivalent to Doukyuusei, since is the first romance oriented and more lenghty title; VA11 HALL-A is the equivalent to Kamaitachi no Yoru, since it became sort of a big deal on console (looking at VA11 HALL-A getting a PSVita version in JP language); The Letter is the equivalent to Eve Burst Error, since is a longer and grittier title. I'm just randomly thinking so sorry if it looks disjointed, but i'd like to see if anyone else could come up with comparisons like that. Edit: Now that i think about it, Doki Doki Literature Club might be the equivalent to Shizuku: Short, rather trippy and became a hit despite VN aficionados questioning its' quality. Sakura Dungeon might be the equivalent of Words Worth because of the similar dungeon-crawling.
  11. Yumina The Ethereal? There are complaints that the gameplay is a bit too easy, but i really liked how it handled going through all the routes.
  12. Senshinkan Ture Route

    Just be careful in how you write your title. There are two Senshinkans, so it's clearer to write Hachimyoujin instead. Just a tiny nitpick.
  13. Question: when you guys finish translating your first route, are you thinking about releasing it as sort of a demo?
  14. Those freaking "indirect kiss" gags. They're some of the lamest ever and being worried about bacteria spreading would be more believable.
  15. Should I play Rance chronologically?

    From what i'm hearing, the only ones you have to play chronologically are 6 through 10. 4 and 5 are some of the most irrelevant ones.
