  3. List of notable Visual Novel related discords as of 2020

    Cool, added these plus some other series I missed in the opening post.
  4. Last year I linked a list of the known Visual Novel related discords I knew about. There were a handful I found throughout the year that I added. Enough that I felt it would be good to post this list again for people to find an updated list of discords of series they've read in the last year or didn't know exist. Not including things like DanganRonpa/Ace Attorney discords since those games are so popular they're not really VN community based as much and are super easy to find. Most of these should be welcome to all readers. Whether you want to read the series for the first time, or have already and just want to discuss the VNs. Just make sure to respect spoilers and any other rules the discord has. If there are any notable Visual Novel related discords you want me to add to this list that I forgot or you feel should be put on here, or one of the links doesn't work, let me know. -------- **List of Discords for official licensing companies, TL groups, developers and major websites** * MangaGamer- https://discord.gg/a7zuFfZ * JAST USA - https://discord.gg/rMGjzQE * JAST BLUE (yaoi aka Guy x Guy Visual Novels) - https://discordapp.com/invite/pzbxfuV * Sekai Project - https://discordapp.com/invite/sekai-project * Sol Press - http://discord.gg/hrcAzxq * Nekonyan - https://discord.gg/BK4dFsG * Fruitbat Factory- https://discord.gg/fruitbatfactory * Nexton- https://discord.gg/GcyDtUt * Cherry Kiss Games - https://discord.gg/3hTEeBC * ALICE IN DISSONANCE (Fault Milestone developers) - http://discord.gg/faultseries * Todokanai (White Album 2 Fan TL group) - https://discord.gg/5rrxEUN * Torishirojima Island (Summer Pockets FanTL Group) - https://discord.gg/XHtsCs7 * Tsurezure Scans (Hatsukoi/Tsujidou/Hoshiori/Gin'iro Haruka FanTL group)- https://discordapp.com/invite/nfwUnp4 * Committee of Zero (Chaos Head Noah FanTL + SciADV patch improvements) - https://discord.gg/53cj5xs * ShiraVN (Magister Magistrate, Your Diary+ retranslation, and Meteor World Actor.) - https://discord.gg/qBmrqDy * /r/visualnovels - https://discord.gg/Z6skErt * DevTalk+ (Visual Novel Development Community)- https://discord.gg/VzM6DeQ * Fuwanovel - https://discord.gg/F79q4dp * Visual-novel.info - https://discordapp.com/invite/gtNRnbe * Kazamatsuri - https://discord.gg/RdjQsV2 (Kazamatsuri also requires user to fill out a form to confirm you) - https://goo.gl/forms/8U2gO2NDUkcxhdoB3) ----- **List of fanmade discords for VN series** * Air - https://discord.gg/N8wTXEK * Aokana / Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm - https://discord.gg/WaVm5cm * Ar Tonelico Surge Concerto series https://discord.gg/2xMZbZs * Baldr series - https://discord.gg/CRP4Sp * Chaos;Head/Child playthrough and discussion server: https://discord.gg/aqcsPWY * Dies Irae - https://discordapp.com/invite/fVgRb7T * Doki Doki Literature Club - https://discord.gg/6cKj8cq * Fata Morgana - https://discord.gg/3vVkkH2 * Flowers - https://discord.gg/bwdCm88 * Grisaia - https://discord.gg/0vIZSb9oQQcDDPTX * If My Heart Had Wings/Kono Oozora + Sky Full of Stars/Miazora - https://discord.gg/pjWQw57 * Island/Himawari - https://discord.gg/nx6whn3 * Kanon - https://discord.gg/dEEbycx * KEY/VisualArts (Kanon, Air, Clannad, Planetarian, Little Busters, Rewrite, Angel Beats, Harmonia, Summer Pockets) - https://discord.gg/Wd4DrgN * Katawa Shoujo https://discord.gg/S2EHXbA * Little Busters - https://discord.gg/PPz6xRa * MajiKoi/Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai + Tsujidou-san - https://discord.gg/wqAcmHp * Muv-Luv - https://discord.gg/0wXwnqY9lQcO0u0E * Narcissu and other stage-nana VNs - https://discord.gg/8s9VmS9 * NekoPara - https://discord.gg/xGY7Hec * Otome Games - https://discord.gg/gYFY5yF * Overdrive (Edelweiss, KiraKira, Deardrops, Dengeki Stryker, Go Go Nippon, Bokuten) - https://discord.gg/m8sGK4u * Rewrite - https://discord.gg/FCBb8M4 * Root Double / Infinity Series (Never7, Ever17, Remember11) / IO - https://discord.gg/7fy6A6n * Saya no Uta - https://discord.gg/UMWvCMW * Steins Gate + Science Adventure VNs (Chaos;Head, Robotics;Notes, Chaos;Child, etc) - https://discord.gg/YBmZzfA * Subahibi/Subarashiki Hibi/Wonderful Everyday - https://discord.gg/x9uenG * Symphonic Rain - https://discord.gg/DtmxqSY * Tactics (One and Moon) - https://discord.gg/XUfvN2p * Type Moon - https://discord.gg/fate * Umineko (/r/umineko) - https://discord.gg/mV9jM9G * Utawarerumono - https://discord.gg/bgJ9rAF * VA11-HallA - https://discord.gg/B4cBVaC * YU-NO - https://discord.gg/7ZNK8TT * Yuri (Girl x Girl) Visual Novels - https://discord.gg/MykW77j
  5. I've seen some comments and reviews posted that introduce the specific setting, characters, and story elements of this VN. This topic is going to be a more general/analytical writeup on the themes and overall presentation. Now don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to downplay the dark/depressing elements. In fact, a handful of events may not be for the faint of heart, and the endings aren't always the happiest. However, mostly referring to these elements really downplays the true experience of BokuTen and may stop people interested from checking it out. Bokuten actually has a good mix of legit emotional, heartfelt, heartwarming, and most of all, bittersweet moments. This might be an overused word to some people, but Bokuten is essentially a "Deconstruction" on the meaning of love and happiness. Moeges, charages, and even some storyge with romance tend to build towards some mostly happy ending where everything turns out alright. Bokuten tends to ponder both the positives and negatives of a romantic relationship and what it's built on. Is truly getting together no matter what the best possible outcome for everyone? Who and what gets affected when you confess and/or get together? Can you really handle and love the other person unconditionally, flaws and all? All of these questions, and more, are potential themes to think about when you're reading through the story. Similarly, it also raises the question of what the true meaning of happiness is and how to obtain it. This is a big theme for various characters. In addition to these two important themes, Bokuten still has a lot of what it's in typical visual novels. It has comedy and lighthearted moments with some unique humor and some you see often (thank god there's no tsundere hitting humor). It has an MC that's oblivious to some romance, but obvious to everyone else. But the MC has a legit reason for feeling that way, and has much more personality (in a sarcastic/blunt sense) than others. If you've watched the Oregairu/SNAFU anime, think of him like Hachiman, but a darker take. Alternatively, think of him like Yuuji from Grisaia but instead of saying things to specifically troll and get on people's nerves, he is just that serious and to the point about what he thinks. It also has a common route, but it's one of the most unique and interesting common routes I can think of in visual novels. While there are still slice of life comedy scenes as stated above, they aren't too long and each chapter gets to the meat of its drama pretty quickly. The common route is kind of a mix between Sharin/G-sen's chapter system and ef. The decisions you have to make can be difficult and the themes build heavily into what to expect in the actual heroine routes. Speaking of choices, a big theme is the general grey area of what's the 'right' choice. Compared to most visual novel choices that are simply ways to get involved with heroines faster, every single Bokuten choice is a heavy hitting one that at least makes you think and there may not even be a clear right answer. Sometimes the characters struggle with these choices themselves without input from the player. Similar to real life, not every choice is just a simple way to get something. There may be sacrifice needed in order to achieve what you want. In conclusion, while it is fair to call Bokuten a dark/depressing utsuge given how some endings play out, there's a lot more to it as stated above. If you're interested in finding a character oriented visual novel with more story than usual, but the utsuge comments deterred you, hopefully this post can help you reconsider. If you like utsuges and just wanted more motivation to read this, even better!
  6. Finally finished the VN! Spoiler thoughts below.
  7. 2019 was a crazy year for VN releases and announcements. Cant blame you
  8. Nukige x Nakige Discussion

    Technically in a sense you get them in each route since you fuck both the dogs and the master
  9. Due to the way the VN is structured I added another question: Favorite Common Route chapter? Im interested to see what is the most liked
  10. Happy Christmas!

    Happy Christmas Harry
  11. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    So uh are the "Secret Fantasy Files" in Baldr Sky supposed to be non-canon fantasies? Or are they like silly H scenes that may or may not happen in the story?
  12. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    I will still argue the people arguing anti-censorship are just repressing their sexual desires and saving face trying to say they only care about censorship But I know what they REALLY want
