    NowItsAngeTime got a reaction from Plk_Lesiak in Visual Novel Review - A Sky Full of Stars [VNTubers Style]   
    I've been wanting to do a review of one of my favorite visual novels: A Sky Full of Stars/Miazora. I've also wanted to do a video shilling my favorite VNTubers. Why not combine both and do a review while mimicing the styles of my favorite VNTubers?

    That really takes me back. I got in contact with visual novels around the time MangaGamer started localising them. Still remember learning about them through the Shuffle intro logos. It was my second VN after Fate/Stay Night. I had downloaded it from some barely trustworthy torrent and thought it was a fan translation like Fate, since I had no clue at that time that they were actually sold in the west.
    Actually, Tsuriotsu is also coming to Steam - in Chinese and Japanese. Unfortunately, no English in sight. Still curious to read this and find out if Luna is really so great that she deserves the Getchu character award she won three years in a row.
    MangaGamer's latest title selections felt a bit low profile to be honest. Though they had some questionable title choices in the past as well, so it doesn't have to mean anything. They are probably just buried in their countless Rance projects. Still kinda hope they can get their hands on Kara no Shoujo 3. Story titles of that quality are so rare nowadays.

    Wanted to try a new series idea, talking about the history of various visual novel aspects. In this video, I'll be talking about the VN publisher MangaGamer, mostly about their different releases by developer, as well as other interesting information.

    Visual Novel Monthly Recap for January 2022 is now out! There was no shortage of visual novel releases, new and old, especially towards the end of the month. And then of course one of the most controversial VN-related announcements in recent history.

    NowItsAngeTime got a reaction from adamstan in Suki Suki aka If You Love Me Then Say So Released   
    Unfortunately, after reading Ayame's route, I'm going to drop If You Love Me, Than Say So/SukiSuki.  I loved Ayame, her innocent and curious remarks and love of fast good and gaming made for some great interactions. She definitely had that 'weirdo' vibe I like without being too over the top and had a pretty good explanation for why she's the way she is. And is just generally a sweet girl.
    Sadly I didn't really like... just about anything else. A lot of the humor (outside Ayame) sucked. Yuki and Aoi basically bullying the MC almost all the time was insanely grating. Mahiru being a typical loli tsundere with immature physical hitting wasn't good either.
    The route structure in general is just kinda dumb. The common route skit system is nice for getting certain interactions with characters you want. However, the fact you need a certain amount of points to do a proper "Confession" for a girl who clearly likes you is kinda weird. The main routes have two branches with another "Confession" part that deals with drama. Apparently these ending branches eventually reach them same conclusion anyway but just with different paths and slightly different takes. There's a "Cupid Flower" version of each main route but all it does is put more romance slice of life scenes before the original confession. In theory that's fine but you can ONLY do it after seeing the main ending of the route. To me it makes more sense to have these available before the main route ending somehow since the tonal shift is too weird after seeing the drama then going back just to see slice of life only to realize the Cupid Flower version of the route still has the same endings anyway.
    Speaking of Cupid Flowers, I'm not really a fan of how the "random supernatural" was included. This setting easily could without QP and love fairy shit. And doesn't help QP is annoying as hell and part of the bad humor. To me a lot of the stuff could have happened without this stuff being included but I guess they needed a way for this to stick out compared to typical moege. Just felt like they wanted a way to have some KEY-lite nakige supernatural shit when they felt like.
    Speaking of KEY, Ayame's route is supposed to be one of the weaker ones. While her 'drama' was interesting, I thought the way it was resolved in both of her endings was way too rushed and had way too much supernatural. It pretty much reminded me of a typical KEY true ending but happening way too quickly. Apparently almost every route is better, but considering I didn't like the other 2 main girls, I didn't bother even if they supposedly have better stories (but I'm going to assume the structure is similar).
    Speaking of routes, apparently Chiho and especially Rinka have pretty good routes. However, you have this super long ass common route, and they don't even appear until you finish 1-2 of the main routes! How am I supposed to care about them until you force them after others with no screentime? I'm already forcing myself through a drawn out game with shitty humor.  Doesn't help likable characters like Eri and Maya get plenty of common route screentime and don't get routes.
    Overall, I did not like this VN much at all, but I loved Ayame and her interactions so much that alone got me to continue reading this VN, to the point I started skimming a lot of non-Ayame dialogue. I had no expectations, but was still pretty disappointed. Damn, what a shame. 4/10

    Same. I was a quite hyped for a VN which everyone either hates it or puts it on the pedestal of a legendary VN with god-tier writing on the level of the greats of the literary canon.
    It turned out... well not as great as expected. 
    Is it a kamige? Not to me.
    Is it worth playing? Definitely yes.
    I'll give it an 8/10. Just don't expect any catharsis in any of the routes, except maybe the Demon route.
    Disclaimer: The English version is obviously very different from the Japanese version which is almost universally praised. However... it probably doesn't matter too much. Also the H is terrible. They are short and all very disturbing - even discounting the rape scenes, the pure love "vanilla" ones are equally disturbing.

    Hey, it's been a while. Now that our hacker and translator are back in action, we should be able to continue the project. And in fact, I bring good news:
    Proud to announce that we're releasing another partial, with Yuuki's Hscenes!
    https://mega.nz/file/wQYAlT6S#JOnB7tImLTwVGGAf54u4P5y2UFZE65snfwTN-2IgOB8
     
    Also a progress update on the others:
    Michi: 100% translated, 25% edited.
    Shachi: Starting up.
    Patricia - 1 Scene translated and edited. On hold.
    (linecount pending)
    If everything goes well, next patch should come in a month or so, and the one after that before the end of the year.
    Extra stuff: so, a few post back I said we'll be releasing a version with honorifics. I decided to put that on pause while we deal with how to restore the missing/censored lines from the non-H script. I hope it's not much trouble.
