  1. It's possible. I think it happened on even more occasions than that, but don't quite remember, because the common route was so long and I've read it a while ago.
  2. That was episode 4, right? I didn't really enjoy reading about Ange's situation. It was kinda dragging, I didn't sympathize with her a whole lot and her interactions with Maria were just annoying (because I hate Maria). They just went too deep into describing their mindsets and how they're changing their attitude towards life.
  3. Where do you even find these twists? lmao
  4. The type of plot where a character is ostracized in school for literally any reason. 100% of the time, this is because of rumors or some fabrications. I have never come across a story where a character gets into this scenario for a remotely valid reason, but then again - I don't think this kind of story about someone who's in fact worthy of being an outcast is all that common (because such stories generally involve clearing the character's name and putting an end to all of that). I generally dislike this story because they always use a random side character or a group of them (this group tends to be literally all the students in school who don't have a character sprite, because why would the author want to antagonize characters that are actually relevant) for the sole purpose of being an absolute annoyance to everyone else and to the reader as well. IMO, there is nothing interesting about a story like this, regardless of the decisions the characters make. At the end, they either forget all about it, as if nothing ever happened, or change in a random way, as if becoming a new person, which never makes sense. Most of the time, the unimportant characters that caused all of it don't get any repercussions (and that's not even a bad thing, because nobody cares about these characters).
  5. Grisaia no Kajitsu - Missing CG

    When I said stupid and random, I meant it mostly in terms of how coherent it was with the choice that sends you there. Taken separately, Michiru's bad ending isn't actually that nonsensical. And also Yumiko's bad ending has some connection to the choice and kinda makes sense, but that ending is just not interesting at all and kinda predictable. However, Sachi's bad ending was just a joke IMO and Makina's was a "wtf moment"
  6. Grisaia no Kajitsu - Missing CG

    Amane's bad ending was actually interesting. All the other bad ends were kinda stupid or random, but for Amane, I recommend checking it out
  7. Katawa Shoujo, the queen of homemade VN

    I am someone who hasn't even read Shizune's route, because it was kinda too boring for me and I stopped soon after entering the route. The other routes were pretty fine though. I read Hanako's route first because it intrigued me to see what's up with that shy girl stuff, but in the end Lilly became my favorite heroine. In my opinion, Rin's route was the most interesting. I've read this a while ago, maybe as my 3rd or 4th VN. If I was to read it later, like now for example, I probably wouldn't be able to enjoy it as much, as the drama is too tame in comparison to most of what I've read and comedy is not its strong point. But it was a solid experience nonetheless.
  8. Captivating novels like Umineko

    Subarashiki Hibi and Muv-luv can hook the reader pretty well, but it kinda depends on you. To get to the actual drama/intense story in Muv-luv, you need to wait till you get to the 3rd game Muv-Luv Alternative and the first 2 probably aren't what you're looking for, but I would say it's worth it. As for Subahibi, your enjoyment will be based on how well you can tolerate it. The story is very interesting, but I'd probably describe it as "hard to read"
  9. Stuck inside my home and bored

    If you're looking for nakiges (crying games) then you should read Clannad. From what I've read, there's also Symphonic rain, which can quite possibly make the reader cry, but Clannad is the "stronger" nakige
  10. Visual novel with a depressed protagonist

    White Album 2 Closing chapter has someone like that (I dont like him very much), but idk how the translation for that is doing. It's probably not 100% done. Steins;gate 0, but you have to read Steins;gate first (actually, just read Steins;gate, regardless of what you want ) Symphonic rain is a little bit of a stretch, because the protagonist doesn't really have a reason to be depressed (and he isn't really), but he's just very melancholic by default. The whole VN has an overall very melancholic atmosphere, maybe you'll like that
  11. I want to eat your pancreas. Before I watched it, I thought it was going to be a very sad tearjerker. I've read a bunch of reviews of this movie on MAL and most of them suggested that it's a badly executed story with shallow characters and it completely fails as a tearjerker. So after watching it, I absolutely didn't get the impression that this movie even wanted to be a tearjerker. 90% of it had a rather happy atmosphere. I think that this movie was very much misunderstood by the audience. Shinchou Yuusha. After reading the summary, I expected this to be just another random comedy isekai with some fanservice and that it would get boring quickly. An overpowered protagonist who only has 1 personality trait and nothing else to his character. Well, I was proven wrong really quickly. This anime was actually genius and the comedy never got boring. The way it works is rather simple. This overpowered hero is not actually the protagonist (this is made obvious by never hearing any of his internal thoughts). Instead, the protagonist was this goddess who summoned him and her interactions with the hero and her overreactions are totally golden. Her voice actor did a seriously good job. I feel a little bad for this show, because most of the audience probably couldn't realize that and therefore couldn't enjoy the show because of some biased opinions towards random isekai comedies.
  12. Craving some new VNs

    Fureraba and If my heart had wings are what you're looking for
  13. Thoughts about Umineko after 2 episodes

    I like your comments about the first episode. I also thought it was really brilliant, although there was 1 or 2 later episodes I liked more. But the first one definitely had the best atmosphere of a horror. If you've read 2 episodes and are still not clear about Battler having a personality, then that's kinda sad, tbh. I think his character started being "all over the place" since episode 2. Also the fact that he has voice acting (if you have the patch) and a sprite is enough to indicate that he is not that kind of a protagonist. On top of that, the narration and point of view is sometimes replaced by a third person, so it might even make you feel like you are your own character in there who's thinking about what's going on like everyone else. If you find what Beatrice does irritating (and the other magical elements), then I guess it's kinda unfortunate, but I hope it doesn't ruin the experience for you somehow. But one thing is for sure - Umineko has enough mysteries to keep your logical self entertained. What I'm pretty surprised about is your overly good impression of Maria. She was the character that I absolutely couldn't stand in any scene where she appeared. It's not very common for me to hate a character as much as Maria. As for your theories, they are definitely nothing to scoff at, given that you've only been through 2 episodes. What do you think of the epitaph? It's probably the most absurd riddle in the game (in terms of figuring it out).
  14. Apparently I hate myself. Looking for more Nakige.

    Symphonic rain should work too. It's got a nice atmosphere
  15. What are you playing?

    So I ended up binging through the 2nd half of Higurashi Watanagashi today. The words that best describe my impressions are probably "I wasn't disappointed".
