  1. Recommend something fun

    I'm putting this here because while visual novels are fine I guess, books, movies, manga, and anime are really the type of content I'm looking for. Tomorrow I am going to blow through the remaining four volumes of Kaze to Ki no Uta, and, well.. I have read more than enough Japanese tragedy porn to know that this will absolutely demolish me emotionally by the end. So I would like something to read/watch that is pleasant and relaxing without being boring or without charm. Thanks in advance!
  2. What manga are you currently reading?

    Got to the end of Kaze to Ki no uta's translated parts. It made me feel really tired and sad, which is something that I think it was supposed to do. While it is 70s shoujo BL (ie, not at all something I would read normally), it really did sing to me and almost felt similar in tone to the type of utsuge I like, ahaha. A lot of it is really hard hitting and relatable, especially where the main character is concerned. The other cast members, while certainly not generally as likable as people, are similarly interesting. Definitely reading the remainder of this one.
  3. Recommend me a book!

    I'll be out of town for the next few days, so I need a few books to tide me over. Classical lit is preferred. I like French books a lot. Japanese is also good, especially as that gives me a chance to practice.
  4. Recommend me a book!

    Wow, these all look really good! Thank you!
  5. Badly describe a Visual Novel

    Oh, no, did I make it too easy?
  6. Badly describe a Visual Novel

    Phoenix Wright but with more dead kids and a psychotic robot bear. And Then There Were None but L O V E

    I've been a user for a long time, but I rarely post. And I don't read nukige barring a few exceptions that either have stories or characters that I like.
  8. Danganronpa - Initial Impressions

    but who is best girl
  9. The h stuff annoyed me because at the time I was in middle school and couldn't play those yet, but I ended up using Umineko as a gateway drug anyway and played Katawa Shoujo one or two years later. And then I learned how to "acquire" and it was all over for me. So I guess I didn't really feel it much at all.
  10. Danganronpa v3 Ending

    I just finished Danganronpa v3 and was really curious as to what you guys thought of the ending (especially given how controversial it is). Personally I have mixed feelings in that I think it's a better conclusion than the previous two games had, but I'd be far more emotionally satisfied with a more normal one.
  11. Searching for some beginner otome VNs

    I like No Thank You as someone who doesn't normally like bl. Make of that what you will.
  12. Danganronpa v3 Ending

    I think it's definitely something that could be done, but good god would playing it feel weird. Also, I get the sense that the devs want to move onto something else by the way it was written.
  13. Find a good avatar for Amethyst!

    My favorite cute boy has so many looks!
  14. why are you posting this on a chinese porn slideshow forum though
  15. ~~~FAVORITES!!!~~~

    Favorite vn: Tie between Umineko no Naku Koro ni and Fata Morgana. The former has the best cast of characters in anything I've ever read and an atmosphere so thick you could cut it with a butter knife, while the latter is incredibly tight thematically. Favorite route: Chaos;Child- true (if that counts as a route). If not, I suppose Haru from G-Senjou. Favorite loli: Saya Favorite kyonyuu: Maybe Jo from Gakthun? Favorite shota: Luka from MonQuest Favorite best girl: Ange from Umineko Favorite art style: Fata Morgana or Kindred Spirits Favorite genre of vn: Utsuge~ Favorite "dere" type: Deredere Favorite yuri game: Okujou no Yurirei/Highway Blossoms Favorite non- canon pairing: I guess Kaede/Shuuichi from Danganronpa v3? Shipping isn't really a thing I do much, but those two did have pretty good chemistry, I think. Favorite side character: Meijuu from Rose Guns Days Favorite best boy: Michel from Fata Morgana Favorite translation: Gahkthun Favorite OELVN: Sweetest Monster Favorite trap: Ruka from Steins;Gate Favorite jrpg: FF7 Favorite waifu: Orai no Gahkthun's Favorite imouto: Maybe Yukari from KnS Favorite BL: No Thank You This post just made my day
  16. What are you playing?

    I'm glad you liked it! Swan Song is a really great VN, but I wouldn't point you too it for a good fix of happiness. Just sayin'. Though, there's definitely a balance of horror and levity, so it's definitely worth a shot.
  17. What are you playing?

    Spoil me? I'm a little curious, but I don't really want to read more Grisaia.
  18. Happy New Year!

    明けましておめでとう! Happy new year, and I hope everyone has had a good time celebrating!
  19. My next VN

    If you haven't read KnS2, that's definitely worth it (especially as you liked the first one). I found it to be leagues better than the first one, and it's really atmospheric and beautiful. Gahkthun seems to be on your wishlist too. Gahkthun is wonderful and definitely worth a try. And like Funyarinpa said, Fata Morgana is fantastic and good if you're looking for something somber but not over the top or flashy.
  20. Recommend me a VN

    I like dark things. Horror drama and utsuge, for example. And as much as I hated its h-content, I really liked MonQuest's sense of humor and traditional rpg feel. I've been thinking of picking up Evenicle. If anyone has any recommendations for either of these things, I'd be happy to hear them. It doesn't really matter if it's translated or not, but my Japanese is a bit slow and if it's bloated I'll have a hard time with it. I understood Muramasa fine, for instance, but it was so ridiculously lengthy and slow that I stalled it. I'd also like feedback as to whether Evenicle is worth my time.
  21. What are you playing?

    Definitely tell me how it goes! Parts of it pack a real punch.
  22. Recommend me a VN

    These all sound absolutely amazing, I'll check them out.
  23. How many people irl know about your VN tastes?

    My friends generally all know, but I'm not weird about it. Everyone I talk to about it generally understands that I'm genuinely in it for the story and atmosphere, and doesn't judge me about it (I guess the fact that I'm a bit of a literary snob helps). Occasionally I get made fun of, but never seriously. One of my old school friends played MonQuest on my recommendation too, so there's that. Mind, she had a really skewed sense of humor, so there wasn't much risk as far as my social status or disgusting her. I generally don't mention H scenes to people I don't know well, but again, my closest circles all know and don't really care anyway.
  24. ~~~favorite vn character~~~

    Ushiromiya Ange from Seacats Michel Bollinger from Fat Morgan
  25. What are you playing?

    If you like horror VNs then it's a real treat for sure. And it's a really short read so even if you don't end up liking it, you don't waste very much time.
