  1. So, I have installed windows 11 and thought that I should share my findings. I have upgraded my PC from w10 and everything that I had and worked on w10, seems to be working on w11 as well. I haven't encountered any bugs or crashes yet.
  2. Since Windows 11 is in the state where it is now available through windows update, I would like to ask for other VN readers experience, how are VNs on Windows 11. Is everything working properly, do they even open etc. I don't think that I am the only one interested in this question, so I thought that it would be nice to have a place to share our experience.
  3. I can agree with most of what has been said here, though, personally, I always saw routes as the key element for VNs to differentiate and surpass other forms of the literature. In my opinion, more VNs should use these routes not only for heroines/romance but rather for greater plot itself, similarly to what Baldr Sky Dives did.

  5. Foreword: The path of the reader is both fulfilling and a lonely one. Every time we read a story, we create a world in our minds, we become attached to it and in the end, we have to do both: to say goodbye to them and let them rest in our hearts. Now, after many years of waiting, it is finally time to say farewell to the Kara no Shoujo franchise, and I couldn't think of any better way to do it, than by dedicating my first visual novel review to it. Summary: Kara no Shoujo franchise is a 3 part (4 if you count Cartagra) murder mystery visual novel, which tells a tale of Tokisaka Reiji, a
  6. Have you tried installing DirectX, especially the ones that usually come with install disk? I used to have similar problems with Electro Arms and Zero Infinity on w10, Besides those you have listed, I would also have a problem where task manager showed that .exe was working, but nothing would appear on the screen. Though, be warned, DirectX seems to act strange on w10. For example, I had VNs which worked perfectly, but stopped working after DirectX updates.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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 Tri
  10. 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.....
  11. Considering I have finished it fairly recently (it was my 100th vn), I would say Down the Rabbit Hole 2
  12. So nostalgic....You have no idea.... *sigh*

  14. 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 l
  15. 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.
