  1. https://seiya-saiga.com/game/innocentgrey/karanoshojo3.html Should do the trick
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.....
  8. Considering I have finished it fairly recently (it was my 100th vn), I would say Down the Rabbit Hole 2
  9. So nostalgic....You have no idea.... *sigh*
  10. Umineko Dies Irae Rewrite Eden* Guilty Crown Lost Christmass
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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...
  14. Eden* They Were Only Two, On The Planet. - not much to say. Only that it also has great soundtrack.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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 woul
  18. 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.
  19. I agree with above recommendations, especially Umineko since it is one of the best (at least my favorite), if not the best VNs out there. However, I would like to recommend you to postpone Chaos;Head for now. Chaos;Head has 2 versions: original and Noah. You can think of Noah as a full version which is supposed to fix flaws of original + adds additional routes. For now, there are English versions of Noah for ios and android, but PC patch is on the way. You might as well wait a bit till Eng PC patch is released, this way you won't lose all fun by knowing all plot twists. You also said its
  20. Definitely agree with this. Probably my favorite VN Op of all time. Though, one might as well list all of Dies Irae OPs. Muramasa one was good as well.
  21. Could someone recommend me good chuuni or mystery VNs which were released in 2017 or 2018. Or something that looks promising and should be released soon (in 2-3 months) NO yaoi, yuri, rape, Silverio series (already completed) or incomplete stuff.
  22. I really don't get it what is the point of this sequel in the first place. Sounds just like a cash grab like Code Geass new movies are. The only way that I see in which they can make it work story wise is using world after one of Saya's routes, but that wouldn't make it a sequel, but rather just shared world.
  23. It kinda reminded me Ghost in a Shell a bit.
  24. I will also repeat a few: Umineko Steins;Gate Eden* Fata Morgana Rose Guns Days Phenomeno Planatarian Saya no Uta
