Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. Hopefully we don't get another "prejudice against rock" storyline, because those are seriously outdated by this point.
  2. Ayakashibito あやかしびと [Propeller]

    Kind of a shame that you went with the Touka-Tonya-Kaoru route order that some reviews recommended for your first time, because i think Tonya-Kaoru-Touka built up the antagonists better and i still scratch my head at the one review that recommended Touka first, because that kills most of the tension in the VN IMO.
  3. VN of the Month June 2005 - Ayakashibito

    About Ayakashibito, are you playing the original PC version or are you gonna try to emulate the PS2 version for the extra route?
  4. Unlimited Chat Works - Random Talk

    Recommending this as a wake up alarm as something to wake you right the fuck up (right at the starting point of the link so that you almost have a heart attack as well).
  5. Yuri nukige

    It's not really a nukige, but doesn't Sisterly Bliss has a lot H-Scenes as well?
  6. Noel [FlyingShine]

    I liked it a little more than you did, but i have to agree that the people that made this VN had no idea who to market it for. It kinda fails as a action spy story because the yurige scenes fuck up the pacing and it kinda fails as a yurige because most of the H-scenes are between men and women. Fortunately for me, the way the relationship between the two main girls developed and the ramifications of a certain death in the story were enough for me to consider it a pretty good VN.
  7. Played it and overall, i didn't like it as much as you did. I probably would've liked a more down to earth story, but i can definitely appreciate the direction taken (the last few hours of the VN are pretty much impossible to predict, regardless of route). My biggest complaint is that the routes felt too uneven, with Henri feeling like a bad end, Fuuko feeling like a normal end and Komaki feeling like a good end. This probably should've been in enforced route order.
  8. Is the dialogue as absurd as the vndb synopsis makes it out to be? *actually reads the blog post* Holy shit it is.
  9. Looking for a romance VN with Yandere route

    There is one, but the mc never finds out she's a yandere. Because of the core of the story, there aren't any 100% happy endings.
  10. Looking for a romance VN with Yandere route

    https://vndb.org/v18315. The yandere in this one doesn't exactly have a route, but she has so many endings she might as well be an "almost main heroine".
  11. Steel is the next review for 2005. 3days is the extra review from 2004 due to it winning a pool.
  12. Code: Realize Collar x Malice Ayakashi Gohan (translation is a little unpolished though) Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk (has references to Black Butterfly, but they're fairly separate from each other) If you ever change your mind and try untranslated ones, Chou no Doku Hana no Kusari
  13. I see a fair amount of VNs with punk rock/heavy metal aesthetic, so i would like to know if there's any VNs with rap/hip hop one. Some examples of "hip hop aesthetic" would be Boondocks or even Afro Samurai.
  14. Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! S help

    From what little i could understand from your question, you didn't play the Agave route from the original MajiKoi (where Tatsuko and Yamato get to know each other)? You have to play the 5 main routes on the original to access Agave.
  15. random top 100, one year later

    (original: https://forums.fuwanovel.net/blogs/entry/2488-random-top-100/) I played so many VNs over the past year that i've managed to replace over a fourth of the list, so it felt adequate to post a updated version.

Also, after Hello world and Kusarihime, i feel i've read pretty much all older VNs with no chances of being translated i wanted to. Now i plan to be a little more laidback with my reading, making this kinda of the end of a chapter for me.
