  1. I will check them out. I have also tried to search for myself. Since you have likely read most of what I have found, could you confirm whether any of these match the criteria or maybe would would recommend to read/avoid any of these: Tasogare no Sinsemilla, Tenshi no Hane o Fumanaide, Gekkou no Carnevale, Jingai Makyou, Sora no Baroque, Electro Arms, Zero Infinity, Kyokugen Dasshutsu series, I/O Actually, I am reading Clannad at the moment. I am somewhere in the early/middle parts of the After Story. After that, I will go with Tomoyo after to complete the set.
  2. It has been a while since I came here. I have decided that it is about time to update my plan to read list. My requirements are: if VN has a true route (which it preferably does), that true route is actually good or at least does not ruin the rest of the story or leave bad aftertaste (I am looking at you Island). A good example of what I call a good true route would be recent Silverio Ragnarok (though I am aware how high quality it was)... translation status - do not care. NOT pure slice of life, but rather pure fantasy or with fantasy elements. Though, I don't mind if it is detective/mystery as well. I am not fan of h-content in VNs, so preferably not pure h story. No yaoi or yuri.

    Silverio Ragnarok

    Thanks for review. Honestly, I can't seem to get into the mood for this one. I have managed to read 3 or 4 hours and can't seem to force myself to go beyond that point. Quite frankly, I am baffled myself, because I do like this series very much (because both Zephyr and Vendetta's route are in my top 10).... Anyway, how much of the development previous part received in Ragnarok? I mean besides the same world building. For example, Trinity had Kerberos and everything related to him. Does Ragnarok also have something similar? For example, do we get to see any characters from Vendetta and Trinity, especially from the main cast in Ragnarok?
  4. Ironically, I have started reading Baldr Sky Dive 1 exactly 1 year before English release date... I wish I could forget it so I could play it again.....
  5. Considering I have finished it fairly recently (it was my 100th vn), I would say Down the Rabbit Hole 2
  6. So nostalgic....You have no idea.... *sigh*

  8. I am nowhere near fluent in it. To be perfectly honest, the total number of JP sentences I have ever written is exactly 0. As someone who can speak/understand 3 foreign languages, I can tell you that "fluency" is very subjective topic. First, definition of fluency differs from person to person. If you simply want to read and understand VNs relatively easy, it will depend of the novel you want to read and amount of time you spend studying. Honestly, if you want to read something like Hanahira, aka first untranslated VN for 99% of people, you might be able to do it in a week after you begun to learn JP while Muramasa or anything made by Light might take years. My advise, learn in this order: hiragana>katakana>basic grammar (there are plenty of sources for these 3. For grammar Tae Kim is a good place)> then learn kanji (meanings only. Remember the Kanji is the most popular way. Don't bother with readings)>get hooking programs for VNs (you can do it while studying RTK) and read. Knowing kanji meanings will let you learn vocabulary faster. Hooking will save you time. In this way you can study and read at the same time. Just make sure to start with easy VNS.
  9. Having potential is true, but it also a massive danger. One wrong move and you might harm yourself in the end. For example, DI and KKK if you are Marie's fan. That was probably the thing I hated the most in KKK. It essentially dragged down even Marie's end in DI.
  10. RIP light. I will really miss you. 3rd Silverio? Do we really need another one? Don't get me wrong. I liked first 2 parts, Zephyr and Vetti is one of my favorites VN pairings after all. But they did finish everything nicely with part 2...
  11. Eden* They Were Only Two, On The Planet. - not much to say. Only that it also has great soundtrack.
  12. So, a few days ago my W10 killed my pc and I lost everything I had on it, including my collection of VNs and save files of those I completed. I thought that maybe I should take this as a clean start so I came here. Basically, I am getting close my 100 VN mark so I want to fill the spots. I have decided to make Subahibi number 100. Now all I need is 6 more. What I want is ether fantasy or mystery VNs with good plot and as little h-content as possible. Preferably something with true route/ending as well.
  13. Just finished part one and got part 2 installed. For some reason text seems to appear much slower (even though it is at max speed). However, the major problem is that after I exit save/load screen, game freezes. For example, I read, open and save / open new game and load - game freezes. Background music is working, however clicking does not move text forward, right click, shortcuts, top buttons like "X" do not work. I can't even move that window. I can only close through task manager. I use w7 set to JP locale. Added exception to antivirus. Tried to change save folder from "read only" but it keeps resetting...
  14. Honestly, I wanted to read Dies Irae and Muramasa + a few Light novels. As soon as I finished learning hiragana and read Tae Kim's guide, so about 2-3 weeks. My first untranslated VN was Hanahira and according to MAL I have completed over 800 anime series, majority of which were subbed. I am used to studying languages. English is my 2nd one while Japanese is 4th. I didn't find spoken parts hard, but kanji is still a pain. I always use such programs. They save a lot of time while reading. My favorites are Chuunige and they contain a lot of stuff that are rare terms, which would be annoying to search.
  15. Hanahira. Seriously, this is probably the first untranslated VN for the majority of untranslated readers. This list here has a variety of relatively easy VNs, however I need to make a few notes. Start with more school life stuff like Flyable hearts, Hoshimemo or Key works. School life is the basic vocabulary for wast majority of other novels (since nearly all of them takes place in highschool). Avoid Eustia, Baldr, Route Double, Subahibi, Chuusingura, Himawari or Island for now. They do have specific vocabulary that will make your reading hard if you know little of JP.
