  1. Mangagamer Otakon 2018 Announcement

    They said SukiSuki's issues were taken care of, so that's a "yes."
  2. (8/1 update) Results of the honorifics survey

    Or perhaps I view the removal of honorifics as a remnant of cultural imperialism, given that honorifics from other European languages are not treated the same way?
  3. I can access it just fine.
  4. (8/1 update) Results of the honorifics survey

    I'm a professional editor. I prefer keeping honorifics for stories in a Japanese setting.
  5. Looking For Caretaker Vibe

    D.C. has more than 2 heroines.
  6. (8/1 update) Results of the honorifics survey

    It's all about Japanese being the language of the non-White "other," therefore unacceptable. Also, recent translations of Japanese literature have started including honorifics.
  7. Looking For Caretaker Vibe

    Da Capo has some routes that fit the bill. Sharin no Kuni has you "taking care" of the heroines, but as more of a case manager.
  8. (8/1 update) Results of the honorifics survey

    I'm just going to note the double standard that allows foreign honorifics from Western cultures, such as 'Monsieur' or 'Herr,' to exist in English translations, while non-Western honorifics such as '-san' are shunned.
  9. How can we make visual novels more popular in the west?

    I'd be happy with something like minori's cinematic style.
  10. How can we make visual novels more popular in the west?

    Let the market develop naturally.
  11. Hmm, do I take on a fan project, knowing that I'm going to get more professional work? I've had to drop stuff because of work before. But it's HaruUru...
  12. Snow Fan Translation (Recruiting Translators)

    I just wonder, why SNOW over another neglected nakige—one that actually has a following. For instance: Sanarara Moshimo Ashita ga Hare Naraba Soshite Ashita no Sekai yori Ashita no Kimi to Au Tame ni Natsuyume Nagisa
  13. I was wondering about the purchasing habits of the visual novel community, more specifically, where and how it buys visual novels. The polls covers both English and Japanese releases. This is about visual novel purchasing habits, as such, please don't respond regarding how you obtain pirated games. Personally, I've gone fully digital and my preferred shops are Steam (if all-ages or officially patched) and company websites. I've done a few Kickstarters in the past at low tiers, but don't anymore.
  14. Favorite opening movie in a VN

    Hatsuyuki Sakura and ef -the first tale- have already been posted, so I'll go with...
  15. Hell has frozen over. Denpasoft finally released the unrated version of Eden of Grisaia.
  16. ~~~FAVORITES!!!~~~

    Favorite vn: Hatsuyuki Sakura Favorite route: Usami (G-senjou no Maou) Favorite waifu: Tamaki Sakura Favorite art style: Unisonshift Blossom Favorite genre of vn: nakige Favorite "dere" type: kuudere Favorite side character: MAXX Favorite OELVN: 80 Days Favorite jrpg: Persona series (3 and beyond) Favorite Kemonomimi animal type?: kitsune
  17. ONE VN you should read before you die.

    Hatsuyuki Sakura. From laughter to tears, this VN takes you on an emotional journey. It has some great heroines (Sakura, Aya). The protagonist is about as far from the typical nakige mold as you can get, being a misanthrope with a desire for revenge. Did I mention that it's a fuyu-ge, and fuyu-ge are the best? Also, exists. The OST is stunning listening by itself and works even better in-game as an atmosphere generator. Finally, I just want somebody to translate this game, because it's had too many failed projects. (I'd be happy to insist on editing this if you pick it up. Same goes for Natsuyume Nagisa.)
  18. HoshiMemo review discussion

    The problems go beyond QC level. It's more like, "What editor?"
  19. New date/kissing scenes were written to replace the H-scenes from the 18+ version, and given accompanying CG.
  20. Where and how do you purchase your visual novels?

    Hiding games is an option, you know.
  21. VN with unique routes???

    Yoake Mae yori Ruri Iro na (schoolgirl, maid, priestess, princess, librarian, other spoilers...) Be on the lookout for when The World's Most Forbidden Love comes out.
  22. [suggestion] New 50 VNs to read before you die

    I agree with putting Euphoria on the list (although I wouldn't call it a nukige. Hardcore, yes; plotless, no.)
  23. [suggestion] New 50 VNs to read before you die

    I enjoyed it back when I played it, but that's been a long time. Thinking about it now, though, I'd say My Girlfriend is the President is more deserving of a spot. You know, I'm not sure this list is going to make it to 50 titles. It might be better to cap it at 30.
  24. 25 Otome Games Worth Reading

    I've played it. It's totally an otomege, and a really good one at that.
