  1. Hiya, you guys! Guess who's back~ I spent last week reading through the entire common route of Majikoi and boy, did I enjoy it haha First impressions Positives strong and dominant female cast unique and diverse characters good comedy fast-paced without much info drop the end skit hehe Negatives the art and BGM are very average imo I'm still not sure what to say here abt the vn itself; I had some issues with some characters, but I will dwell on that later Characters Miyako: She was fun at first, but the jokes got tiring and repetitive with time... Wanko: I L O V E H E R ! ! ! I don't want to have to lewd her in her route uuuuugh... Ravioli, ravioli, don't lewd the doggo loli. A pal of mine described her as the mix of Kud and Masato (from Little Busters!) and it couldn't be any less true. Chris: Hmm... I don't think she's a bad character, per se... but she is indeed the least interesting one, I'd say. She's kinda preachy and annoying - kind of a jerk, a lot of times lol Mayu: Not gonna lie, I disliked her at fitst (I only liked "Matsukaze"), but she did grow on me, especially after both fights with Chris haha Momoyo: Even though her actions are questionable - with the harassement and rape jokes and all, I am still a sucker for strong girls sigh... Shouichi (Capt.): I want to see my little boy...! Here he comes! I want to see my little boy...! Personally, I see him the same way as Wanko: just an innocent child running around hehe Gakutou: I was expecting that first bad end to be with Gakutou ngl; it was disturbing, oof... Well, I love muscle idiots, he very much reminds me of Masato, except Masato doesn't think with his dick lol Moro: I like him, he's the sane member of the group lmao He doesn't stand out though, not that I mind it. Minamoto Tadakatsu (Gen-san): Man, I just love this guy! He's the first tsundere I actually stand and like, woah He's such a sweetheart hehe I couldn't bear Ikurou... He was too much; Oogushi was alright, I guess; Man, I loved Azumi, even though she barely showed up lol Aoi Touma... what a bi icon, I love him, heh; he wasn't a trash character and was clearly bi, so that's nice (yes, the bar is low) Love for children aside, Jun is cool! That cool and smooth voice totally suits him lmao Finally, for Yamato: he's a good balance between generic and OP (to the point of it being too much). I have to admit that amongst such a diverse and powerful cast, he is a bit underwhelming, but I like it. He doesn't need to be too excentring, since he is usually "watching" the story unroll (as the protagonist). ---------------- Well, then. I will read Chris' route tomorrow. I'm a little uncertain on how to feel about her, but at least now I know better than to actually read h-scenes lmao well, except this one is apparently needed for the plot
  2. Yeah, the first game. And yeah, I know about the twist thing, I've actually discussed that with my book club peers haha it's a cool thing to know!
  3. Alrighty, one more finished! This time, I finished all the endings left from The Nonary Games. Ending 6 Ending 4 True Ending Overall, it wasn't a bad game, not at all. I mean, I loved discussing it with my peers, especially when it came to the mystery! Paranoia: Deliver Me I started playing this one today and I plan on finishing it this week! First Impressions Positives: The art and the soundtrack is beautiful, as it should be, since the game itself is about music lel The mood can be very spooky and me likey Negatives: The translation is awful and it kinda breaks my immersion and overall enjoyment of the vn... Also, the voice acting isn't that good; I'm not sure if it's because I'm not used to listen to Chinese, but they all sound like they don't care about what they are saying and don't really feel the character they are playing The choices are damn weird, the fuck... How am I supposed to know what to do? And there's no walkthrough available out there [cries] THE SKIP ISN'T WORKING AAAAGH—! Well, this is all I've got for the week!
  4. Yes, it doesn't start with the exciting stuff right off the bat, but that "boring" part (I didn't find it boring, but maybe that's because I liked the mood) is very important for the plot later on. I mean, if you want to feel confused, you can just skip it LOL (btw, there will be another flashback, but this one is shorter). About the protagonist swaps - they exist because there are two mysteries and the friends part... I mean, c'mon it's just SoL pfft- take it with a grain of salt, but it's good for Yukiko (again, you'll understand why later on). But hey, if you are not liking it, who am I to force you to read it!
  5. As I mentioned before, I started playing Zero Escape - 999 -. It's been really entertaining so far, I'm liking it! First Impressions Positives: I liked the characters — it was refreshing to see more "adult" characters and everyone was really different haha the flowchart ("flow") — one more excellent addition to the steam port the protagonist — he is normal, that's all I ask for. Negatives: the minigames — this is kind of subjective but, personally, I was stuck for way too long on them and got frustrated a lot of times... the differences between the "novel" and "ADV" mode — I like the option of choice, but I'd like to have novel mode's writing with the ADV's design. It's just less polluted. Oh, well... NOT HAVING A LOAD OPTION ON THE MENU — C'mon! That's basic! ENDING 3 ENDING 5 Current theory (after discussing it with my pals) ----- This week, I'm playing ending 6 and 4 (in that order)! I'll finish it the week after!
  6. Okay, Iwaihime is FINISHED! Finally... It's been 84 years-- erm, anyways! Kiko's Route: erm... it was different, for sure. I felt grossed out by that scene, but it was on the same level as the other routes. I'm glad it wasn't too heavy on the "perfect wife" thing and that it had an actual explanation as to why she went through those phases of hers. Spoilers for the true ending and the extra chapter: I'd still give it a 6/10... maybe a 7/10 for the extra chapter alone. Tfw a dlc is more interesting than the main work itself... tsk, tsk P.S.: A friend of mine says Toé is best girl but I still can't understand how, she's so meh To be fair, so are the other characters but-
  7. Alrighty, it's posting time! I'm going to finish Iwaihime until this weekend, but so far I've read Kanae's and Riria's routes and I'm currently reading Kiko's. Well... It's not getting any better. To be honest, the only reason I haven't dropped it already is because I'm reading this for my vn club, so I do want to discuss it with the people there, even if it's to complain lol Kanae's Route: Hum... This one was just weird, I guess. I don't know, I just noticed that the thing that made me really want to stop reading is the pacing, again. Well, it's not like this problem would disappear from one part of the game to the other. Riria's Route: In a nutshell, can Lily just fuck off? I'm still reading Kiko's but man, this is going to be one heck of a route... Sexism and traditional gender roles: the route! Oh boy, I can't wait! Hahaha... haha... ha... ----- As soon as I finish this one, I'll start the zero escape games aaa I can't wait!
  8. Alright, I'm reading Iwaihime and I've read the first 4 chapters. So far, I would give it a solid 6/10... SPOILER-FREE Negatives: each chapter follows a very predictable storyline and pattern which gets boring after a while; the plot is too fast for me to get attached to any of the characters and the horror element is very affected because of it; I was expecting more gore, especially in the second chapter... since the graphics are the best element, I wanted for the vn to show the gore, not tell ugh... The voice acting isn't the best and the comedy sounds too forced, especially because of the fast pace. It's hard for me to enjoy it because I just can't get attached to the characters; The protagonist is very assertive, sure, but other than that, he is just so bland and protagonisty lol Positives: the graphics!! Honestly, this was exactly what drew me in when it first released in Japanese besides being from Ryuukishi; yes, there are some derpy CGs and sprites, but overall, I really enjoy to look at the art the mystery isn't a super positive point, as it isn't as intriguing as I was expecting it to be, but it's still making me interested enough to keep me reading!
  9. Little update: I finished Moe Era! It was nice!! It made me think about life a lot (not that I didn't overthink it before) and the post-first-route content was very interesting, for sure!
  10. Alright, this month is going to be spooky I'm playing Moe Era right now and I'll finish it before this Sunday and, right after than one, I'm going to start reading Iwaihime I'm so excited aaaa
  11. About Room No.9? Yeah! I mean, the plot itself is how the experiences affect their friendship. I would say the last endings are the best endings! ----- Sooooo, I just finished Saya no Uta! Man, it was depressingly amazing! my next vn will probably have to wait as I am quite busy with school right now, but I'll probably read Magical Eyes - Red is for Anguish
  12. I finished Kara no Shoujo 2 and I loved it! I almost cried at the end too, but damn, that sure got me hyped for the third episode! --------- Next VN will be Saya no Uta
  13. Alright, alright! I finally finished Ace Attorney: Miles Edgeworth Investigations and it was pretty good! I was a little lazy to finish it because the last case was a little frustrating but I really like Edgeworth haha now I miss Phoenix and Maya tho!!
  14. Alrighty! I've been away for a while but I'm back with a finished vn! This time, it was Room No. 9. Was it sad? It was. Was it sexy? Was I hoping for more? For sure!! :( I thought we would have more freedom of choice and especially more gore... Well, overall, I wouldn't say it was a bad experience, not at all. I did like it a lot. This left me wanting more, I think I'm gonna read Euphoria or Maggot Baits very soon... ------------ The next one I plan on finishing soon is Kara no Shoujo 2!
  15. YES!!! Yes, I can't wait! ---------- As for personal progress, I've read more of Kara no Shoujo 2 and woah, I managed to bug it as it kept turning upside down and back to normal a bunch of times before I finally restarted it lmao
  16. Personally, Danganronpa is a vn, but I'd say it's both a vn and an adventure game, in a way. Grisaia sounds fun, I have been wanting to read it for a long time x_x have fun! I agree! The second one is considered the best, although the third is my favorite haha
  17. Oh, for sure! Hahah sadly it IS redundant, I just said that in Clannad's case, it really affected me ^^" I do like to point out these things, even if it's just from a critical and personal point of view
  18. You're probably right haha I try to ignore some things because of the context of the work but yeah, that's probably what happened. Welp!
  19. Phew... I finished it. After 3 months of reading it, little by little, I decided to seriously read it and finished today! I enjoyed Clannad as a whole, it wasn't a bad experience, but After Story didn't hit me as hard as I thought it would. Maybe it's because I already knew what was going to happen or maybe it's for other reasons. Either way, it was 7/10 for me. My thoughts on After Story: After that, I did Sunohara's Ending and Jet Saito and had a damn good laugh, hahaha! ----------- My next reading will be the little bit left to finish Ace Attorney: Miles Investigations and then return to Kara no Shoujo 2
  20. Alrighty! I've finished reading Nagisa's route! Nagisa's route (spoilers...?) I'm now finishing After Story so I'll probably write my thoughts on that tomorrow! See ya! P.S.: That kiss CG is one of the best drawn so far (at least, when it comes to the kiss ones) in the entire game, so there's that
  21. I haven't been here in a little while but I'm finally getting some reading done in Clannad! I've finished reading Fuko's and Komura's route yesterday Fuko's route: Komura's route: As I'm writing this, I'm almost done with Nagisa's route (only 3 hours left) but yeah, I would say so far Clannad has been a 7/10 for me, hm.
  22. [CLANNAD] Alright, I just finished Kotomi's route, and wow...! This is the first Clannad route that made me shed actual tears :') Next is Fuko's route!
  23. oh man, I might like this vn more than I thought!
  24. Alright, after some time without updating my reading life, I'm back! I've been reading Kara no Shoujo 2 every day and I would say I'm mid-way through it I'm loving it so far! Even more than the first one, I'd say. Besides that, I've been trying to finish Gyakuten Kenji. It's pretty great! I'm starting Mei's route in Clannad, I'm curious to see what's going to happen around her and Sunohara! (Spoilers for Kara no Shoujo 2) vvvvvvvvvvv
  25. Alright, so... after finishing 11eyes, I began reading Kara no Shoujo 2 and resumed my reading of Clannad (since then, I've finished Kyou's and Kappei's route and I'm on my way to the Sunohara siblings'). I'm also almost finished with Ace Attorney: Miles Investigations! Kara no Shoujo 2: the first murder happened and I'm hyped Clannad: honestly, this vn is like Harry Potter for me in the sense that I should've read it sooner lol I feel like I'm too old to read this, it's so overdramatic and cheesy and meh- also, it doesn't help that I don't like Tomoya lol
