  1. I was kinda curious if there was some kind of policy for Visual Novel streaming since it's becoming a more popular thing and there's so many companies releasing visual novels now. From my research and asking around here's what I found: MangaGamer - They have a Policy on their website. Short version is full Streaming is OK, but Full VODs are only allowed for 20% of the VN or whatever covers any demo content. Any other saved videos have non-sequential clips that are a few minutes long at best. JAST - The exact words from a representative "As long as the VOD is transformational, including your reactions and commentary, it's fine. We can't have a video up of the complete, unedited game that would serve as a replacement for the original work. But as long as you are adding to it, that's your work. Basically, fair use rules: https://www.youtube.com/about/copyright/fair-use/". So basically Stream/VOD away as long as you add to it. Sekai Project - They actually have a list of which specific Visual Novels have limitations or not. TLDR, most of them are fine to fully stream/record. A small handful can only be done up to first route or demo content or non-18+ version. Some are fully banned. Sol Press - Streaming/VODs fully allowed. Nekonyan- "It's okay for us if you want to stream the game but we aren't fans of 100% playthrough VODs. VODs of the common route/trial route are totally okay though. " ShiraVN- TLDR "respect the devs' wishes". Since most of ShiraVN's releases are linear VNs, it may be safer to only do the first 20% of the VN or so. In all cases, you HAVE to provide a link to the company's store (assumedly direct link to buy the VN). And obviously explicit sexual content on any Streaming Site would likely get you banned so just avoid that. I have no idea what to do with fantranslated stuff. And I'm not sure what the other companies do, these are the main companies I was most interested in finding out about.

    This is the second one. He's not reverting, just reposting the link.
  3. Gamer Girls in Visual Novels

    Trying to think of all the gamer girls in visual novels. Not the ones that might've played a game or 2 in passing, but ones where it's at least a somewhat defining aspect of their character. These are the major ones I can think of: Akane (Rewrite) - Shooters Mashiro (Making*Lovers)- Old School/Monster Hunter Maho (Sankaku)- Fighting Games Meguru (Sanoba/Sabbat)- Single Player RPGs Hana (Chaos;Child) - MMOs Chiaki (DanganRonpa 2)- Various genres Aoi from Totono is a visual noveler? I guess if we count that, Shiina from Sankaku is eroge queen. Ureshino (Daitoshokan) - FPSer
  4. VNs with heroines who drink alcohol too

    Mashiro also drinks. Just not that often.
  5. 1) Video on Demand. So, like uploading an entire playthrough on youtube. 2) I mean I could. Would just be kinda weird. 3) Not sure 4) lol
  6. Gamer Girls in Visual Novels

    I got the impression they just made her a secret fan of guns in general But you do remember correctly. That's the thing though. Arcade is an optional date site and you could potentially never know. Compared to Mashiro who has a full CG scene playing games together.
  7. I'm interested in other people who actually like H-scenes (and not just for their literary/story value) but rarely/never talk about what they like. Visual Novels/Eroge are a weird genre that mixes story and H/Sex scenes, though sometimes they are esentially fully separated. Sometimes H-scenes are so long that the length can be equivalent to an average non-H scene in a VN and almost feel like it's part of the story. I've seen various reception to the existence of H-scenes. Some people are just very much against the idea of them existing and only want to read purely all ages content in visual novels which makes sense. There are people who say they don't like H-scenes but then when certain 18+/H content is taken out they don't like that the stuff is being "censored". There are people who say they only like H-scenes if they have some kind of literary/story value besides "pleasing" the reader. Usually when I see people admit to liking H-scenes it's usually just a small comment about them, they keep discussion in like friend groups, or just post pics in some kind of NSFW friendly chat or something. Sexual Content in basically anything tends to have a stigma in certain areas and communities, especially when anime-style characters are involved. The fact that 18+ H-Scenes integrate them in the story means anyone who reads visual novels at some point will eventually come across a VN with them. This isn't like porn or plain hentai or chaturbate where you can more easily hide your preferences, the topic of 18+ H scenes in visual novels will come in at some point. So this brings me to my main point. In relation to those who do legit like H-scenes: Are they just too shy to talk about what they like? Do they have to use excuses to not seem like a weirdo/pervert for admitting to liking them them? Or do they just not really know what to say about them? What are you guys' thoughts on this whole topic?
  8. Since the main discussion topic doesn't have a poll, decided to just make one here. Even though I'm pretty confident I know what the results will be...
  9. Can anyone think of any visual novels that have heroines that have similar vibes to Kotori (Rewrite), Mashiro (Making*Lovers), or Torako/Koppou Captain (MajiKoi)? If you don't know them some basic traits they have: They are very weird girls in general (Kotori being the most normal, Torako being the weirdest) They're energetic/cheerful but in an eccentric or socially awkward way Lots of humor related to puns, dad jokes, Engrish, and other random stuff But at the end of the day are ultimately nice and friendly English preferred, but ok if Japanese only.
  10. [NekoNyan] Making Lovers Discussion

    So I've been thinking about this for a few days since I finished Mashiro's route. Goign through her route I really really really liked her character she was super funny with all her. She was en route to easily being one of my favorite VN characters easily. However Ive been thinking about the little things that were kind annoying like her being randomly pushy about her weird romance rules and stuff. But most importantly the ending where she pulled her 'prank' of pretending to throw the ring left a surprisingly really bad taste in my mouth. Both because she was stupid in thinking to just check her collar as a emotional relationship shit test. But it doubles as if she were to really do it it would've just been fucking stupid since those were really important promise rings they. I know she's a jokester, insecure, socially akward and apologized but the whole scene left a bad taste in my mouth that I couldn't enjoy her ending as much as I should have. Now even when I look back at all the screenshots I saved and other funny pics I see of her, in the back of my head I always think of the bad taste of the ending/ I feel like I'm overreacting but I think what bothers me is how much I really really liked her before the ending. But after that scene, I'm not really sure where to place her. In my mind I still really like her as a whole due to her great comedy scenes and general personality but I dunno how much to take from that scene as far as thinking of her personality as a whole. Anyway, stupid rant over.
  11. [NekoNyan] Making Lovers Discussion

    Finished Making*Lovers. Overall really liked it Really liked comedy and feel good slice of life romance. Girl Rankings: Mashiro > Ako > Saki = Karen >> Reina Route Rankings: Karen >= Mashiro > Saki > Ako > Reina TLDR: Mashiro is mah girl. She's like my type in so many ways. Weird and funny but nice and has a lotta similar interests. Though perhaps a bit pushy/picky in some ways. What she did in her last chapter (non-Epilogue) got me kinda mad but thankfully she apologized. Karen is good and I get way people like her and her route but in the end her being tsundere kinda brings down and otherwise good character/route. Saki is solid but not amazing all around. Ako was good but the step sister age gap romance was not my thing. Reina was kinda annoying and the age gap romance was not my thing.
  12. [NekoNyan] Making Lovers Discussion

    Is there a recommended route order? Generally I just generally do a save my most interested heroine for last in moeges but just wanna make sure there isn't some like plot-related reveal or something that would be better to experience earlier/later.
  13. This was made solely by @Okiyuu on the MajiKoi/Tsujidou fan discord: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17TIlvDV8Sb9cHXvfs_RQP9ql8DIceV1C/view?usp=sharing The premise is you're a protagonist who's joining the Class of MajiKoi/Tsujidou and figuring out what the culture is like there. This VN gets quotes and common scenarios from the discord to get an idea of what it's like in there as well as mixing in some fun VN elements. There are some inside jokes and language that can be a bit... strong so just keep that in mind if you want to check this out.

  14. (Request) Majikoi A-3

    I dont think choices have actually mattered to get a good end in MajiKoi after Momoyo's route in the original There's still a bunch of humorous bad ends.

  18. Hello There.

    General Kenobi!
  19. This can be from whatever angle you want: Physical Traits, Body Type, Personality, etc. Just whatever just the character(s) that specifically appeal to your personal tastes and why. There are a lot of characters I like but if I had to narrow it down to my type I'd say Kotori from Rewrite, Naruko from Bokuten, and Rina from Fureraba. Some traits between the three I like are: * All are generally energetic carefree characters and know how to give and take jokes pretty well. * At the same time, they're clearly are smarter/down to earth than they seem and know when to be serious when needed. (Many energetic characters end up being too immature, dumb, or loony) * All 3 are childhood friends or some kind of childhood friend equivalent. While Himari was the true childhood friend of Fureraba, Rina eventually took her place and knew the MC well before the story started. In all 3 cases, I liked the bond the characters were able to create and show before the story starts. Kotori and Naruko in particular have very deep relationships that are more interesting the more you learn about it. * I like their casual clothes/general fashion sense is fairly simple but still looks pretty/cute. * Outside Kotori and Naruko being brunettes none of the 3 are that similar in terms of physical traits. One of the main reasons I liked Kotori a lot from the start cuz... basically all her physical traits are stuff I really like. Naruko and Rina still look nice but Naruko is maybe a bit too smol and Rina a little too thicc.
  20. Shame in liking H scenes/18+ Content in Visual Novels

    Hundreds of H-scenes/eroge later and I still prefer these by far, mostly for this reason (besides the typical stuff like art and positions and stuff I like)
