    Nosebleed got a reaction from droganpc in Why people are so insecure about the subject of h scenes in vn?   
    Porn doesn't have to be art. Porn can just be porn. That still doesn't discredit its existence in any way, shape or form.
    Again I'm repeating myself but this comes down entirely to people's taste in the genre. You clearly hate sex scenes, and that's fine, but don't bash other people and call them delusional for merely having a different preference.
    You are literally trying to justify a personal preference of yours as some universal fact, and I'm sorry to tell you but that won't go anywhere.
    And let's assume everything you said is true. That h-scenes give a bad name to vns, that h-scenes are pointless, that they literally only harm the medium. EVEN THEN, that is still no reason for people not to like them.
    I think you should just accept the fact there are different audiences in the medium and in this case you're just not part of it.

    Ey, I just hit 4000 posts, or should I say, I'm only 10283 posts away from Nosebleed's disgusting post count. Wohoo. Totally going to beat that in like... 2 weeks. Totally.
     
    I'd like to take this moment to thank some special people here on Fuwanovel. 
    @Fiddle For being the best user. 
    @Fiddle For being the funniest user.
    @Fiddle For being the best at posting funny gifs, even in the most serious of discussions.
    @Fiddle For being the best AND the funniest user.
    ... ... ...

    Nosebleed got a reaction from Iria in Hey   
    Even after disappearing I still encounter fuwa members at random on discover servers, including people who no longer visit lol.
    Sort of, for a while. In the end I pretty much stopped watching anime and solely stuck to manga as I can read a lot of it in a short amount of time. I think the common theme in all this is that I felt a lack of time and motivation to do anything, but things are better now, although I still pretty much don't watch anime on the regular, whereas I read manga everyday.
    No promises, but I'll try posting more whenever something that interests me pops up!
    I remember almost everyone, surprisingly! Although I don't recall many specific moments anymore, but I still look fondly at Fuwa.
    People who can't beat my post count simply lack the discipline!

    Nosebleed got a reaction from 123321mario in Toradora! Portable   

    Summary
    A spin-off of the popular Toradora Anime.
    Unlike in the original story, this time Takasu Ryuuji finds himself in a hospital bed. Confused and dizzy he's suddenly greeted by a short girl who calls him by a strange name. Is this his name? Who is this girl? It's soon after that the shocking truth comes to the surface. Amnesia. Poor Ryuuji suffered an accident after christmas eve and forgot everything about his past, his friends, his likes, his relationships, even his own name. 
    As he leaves the hospital he meets up with all sorts of people who seem to be acquainted with him. A beautiful blonde girl who apparently lives with him. His best friends Kitamura and Minori. The popular model Kawashima Ami and even his pet parakeet Inko-chan. These people hold all of Ryuuji's memories and they are the key to unlocking his past.
    What will Ryuuji do? Will he be able to recover all of his past? An eventful journey awaits him as new year approaches and the new school semester comes closer by the day. Will he be able to remember everything before school starts? And if he does will anything in his new life change? It's all up to you to you decide.
     Ending Guideline / Suggested Route Order
    This novel has an enforced playing order so you will not be able to avoid bad endings straight away.
    Each ending is graded at the end of the game by Yuri, she'll score it from the worst possible (50 points) to the best possible (100 points).
    There's a lot of dialog choices that are only available if you pick certain items while cleaning/talking.
    The common route always branches at the exact same point and you'll get a different scenario based on the choices you made.
    The game is divided into 3 scenarios: Kitamura & Kano, Courage Test and Solution.
    Within each scenario you have several character routes that you can get into.
    This is an ending guide not a full walkthrough
    Following this entire guide will get you around 90% completition of the game.
    Why not 100%? There's numerous ways of getting into the same ending and each of those counts as a percentage of the game. Every single choice, item and path is a percetange. My goal here is to give you all the endings not every single path in the game.
    There is a list at the end with every single item if you want to know where to find a specific one. You can view your items in the extras option.
    All 21 endings in the game are listed below.
    If you want to complete the game 100% you can try and search for new paths by pressing L during dialogs in order to see the route diagram. 
    Make different choices, pick up all the items you can by cleaning and talking and see if you can go in all the paths.

    Katahane
        Summary
    The story takes place in a world with 3 kingdoms: the Red, White, and Blue Kingdom. In this world exist highly-advanced dolls, some of them closely resembling humans. These dolls occasionally need maintenance, a task performed by a “tuner”. A young playwright named Wakaba wrote a controversial play about a traitor named Ein who killed the ruler of the White Kingdom, Christina. In Wakaba’s play, she presumes that Ein did not betray Christina, but was actually her loyal supporter. Cero, a friend of Wakaba, needs to make a trip to get Coco, a doll that lives with him, maintenance. Wakaba and her brother Light decide to come along with him. Wakaba travels in the hopes of finding some actors for her play. Along the way, they meet a beautiful doll with one wing named Belle and an aspiring actress named Angelina.   Ending Guideline / Suggested Route Order Katahane is a very simple multiple perspective Visual Novel.

    There is a particular feature in this novel called ACV (Another Character View) that appears at random stances. Changing the selected character means that the next prespective change will be that of the character you selected previously. To get certain routes you need to change the character prespective as indicated in the guide. That is all, on with the walkthrough.   Route Guideline

    Lucy -The eternity she wished for-
    Summary
    In the near future, androids have become the way of the norm. Emotionless husks of metal have become a part of human society, much to the dismay of the boy. The robot he found at the dumpsite though, this one was different. It laughed, it cried, it smiled, it has dreams, just like a human… 

    Lucy The eternity she wished for is a Visual Novel, about a boy and an android. You play as the boy, who faces decisions and moral dilemmas in this near-future world. This is a story that has touched many hearts and continues to have a strong impact on those who partake in this compelling journey.' 
    From: Steam
    Ending Guideline / Suggested Route Order
    There are only 2 main ends to the game (and one extra ending) and from all my testing, they all depend on the very last choice you make, so if you want to go blind into it, it's a fairly safe thing to do because the last choice is quite obvious.
    The vast majority of the other choices in the game are mostly for unlocking CGs and specific scenes, some of which unlock achievements.
    Since there's only one major path to take, I have designed my walkthrough so that you can unlock the most achievements with one single playthrough. I will mark all the choices that unlock an achievent with underlined text. If you wish to do your own thing, you'll have to replay the game later to get the remaining achievements.

    Nosebleed got a reaction from LanThief(HUN) in New Profile Fields [Accepting Suggestions]   
    Hey let's blow the dust off of this subforum for a bit shall we?
    I noticed we haven't really updated the profile info since... Fuwa was made basically (other than that one time we added Steam to user profiles). I figured I'd go ahead and add some things users might want.
    List of things added so far:
    Twitter has now been added under Contact Methods  Anilist, ANN (Anime News Network) and Kitsu (formerly known as Hummingbird) are now options for those that don't have a MAL account Transgender, Other and Attack Helicopter are now available gender options Projects has now been added under Profile Information where you can specify whatever VN projects you work (or have worked) on. This isn't for me alone though, so I decided to make a thread and ask for people's suggestions regarding what other fields might be useful to have in their profiles.
    Important note:
    These are small fields that will go either under your contact methods or your profile information section. They're meant to be short. Preferrably things like the username you have on the respective website or something along those lines. Because of this, things like Youtube channels have already been ruled out due to the URLs being too long. Keep that in mind when suggesting.
    Furthermore, make sure that your suggestion isn't just for you but is actually something legitimately useful for the users on the forum.

    They've recently incorporated this feature so I figured it'd be useful to share if you didn't catch it.
    You can use the "Release Filter" instead of, or in conjunction with, the "Visual novel filter" when browsing visual novels to more accurately look for translations. The visual novel filter will only give you visual novels that have a language listed (it could be complete, partial or TBA) but the release filter lets you specify if you want a completed translation or not, it also lets you specify if you want only English licensed VNs or translation patches.

    Nosebleed got a reaction from Kei kun in Dracu-Riot! Completion Project   

    Dracu-Riot! Completion Project
    Project Info:
    As i said in a previous post, if the Dracu-Riot scripts were released, I will translate Miu's route, and that's exactly what I'm announcing in this thread.
    But I'm not alone in this crusade, I've partnered with the wonderful people at The Oxford Comma is Superior Subs so we can deliver the best possible final product and lay the Dracu-Riot memes to rest. We also got several people from the Fuwanovel community to help speed up things even more.
    How is the project going to go down, you ask. Well you can read this post if you want detailed info, but the tl;dr version is that we are aiming to release multiple patches.
    The first patch aims to translate the remainder of Miu's route as well as any remaining untranslated content (images, menus, etc.) with complete editing to polish the current patch.
    We are going to try and release this in about 2 months, if everything goes according to plan.
    The second patch is meant to be more heavily translation checked as that's when Fiddle has enough free time to go over the whole game.
    There is no ETA for this second patch.
    This doesn't mean the first patch will be terrible, we will of course strive for a good product, but we would still like to inform you of our schedule. If we waited for Fiddle to be completely free, it would take much more time to release Miu's route, and so we've decided to do it this way.
    I hope you look forward to future updates.
    FAQ:
    Why not just make a Miu partial patch, why do you want to go over the whole game?
    There are actually 3 main reasons for this:
    The first and biggest one is that Insem's patch only works with the physical version of Dracu-Riot! which is very hard to get in the West and we want to make a new patch that works on both the physical and digital versions of the game, this way people can purchase the digital version and patch it, thus supporting Yuzusoft. The second one is that we want to americanize the writing style as well as make sure everything is edited properly, because Insem didn't have time to finish the whole thing. The last one is translation checking. Although we don't doubt Insem's abilities, we really want to try and make sure the translation is accurate. We also want to include translation notes in the game. Only 2 months? That seems way too fast.
    2 months is indeed fast, if we were translating the entire game, but we're actually only translating about 4,000 lines and we're splitting those lines between two main translators, this will hopefully make that 2 month deadline possible.
    Please do note we will not jeopardize translation quality for the sake of reaching the deadline. If we can not make it in time, we will delay the release until we're satisfied with the end result.
    Will the translation have memes?
    Yes, but only the dankest ones.
    Why aren't The Oxford Comma people making the announcement here?
    So I can get those sweet, sweet internet points.
    I want to help!

    Forum Rules
     
    While Fuwanovel is all for discussion and having fun, we still wish to have a regulated atmosphere that's not harmful to our users, these rules are meant to keep said atmosphere on stable levels. Please read each point carefully.
    Fuwanovel's number 1 rule is Respect and Civility.
    Don't personally insult anybody. Don't be a troll or promote misconduct. Don't bait or harass any user or staff member. We take these offenses very seriously and we hope our users respect this rule above all else.
    General Forum Guidelines
    These guidelines are meant to be followed when posting on our forums.
    Don't embed explicit hentai images or videos on posts/threads, use Spoiler tags/URL form instead and tag it as NSFW. Don't advocate for any real-life crime. This is taken very seriously and will likely result in a permanent ban. Don't post any real life pornography of any kind. Don't provide or request illegal sources for copyrighted material, use legal sources instead. Don't spam the Recent Topics box. Don't post content you know might offensive to someone or a group of people. Don't post staff PMs in public, if you have any issue with how the staff carried something out, talk it out in private with a moderator instead. Don't bring personal issues in public, if you and other user(s) don't get along, please don't bring your strife to the forum. Global Moderators and Board Moderators are responsible for carrying out the rules and it is up to them to interpret them and carry out an appropriate punishment for each situation.
    Lolicon/Shotacon Policy
    Pedophilia is an extremely complicated and sensitive real-life issue, and presents a significant challenge to visual novel communities who want to promote thoughtful discussion but are faced with strict laws on one hand and deplorable internet rhetoric/insensitivity on the other. Many of you are aware of how far back and how divisive this issue has been. To protect the site from legal action and to resolve this issue once and for all, we have chosen to amend the site rules as follows. We're trying to strike a delicate balance here -- acknowledging this is part of the VN medium, and sensitive discussions of these topics are important. 
    The new policy: Fuwanovel is not the place to discuss the nuances of pedophilia – in real life or in entertainment. Because they are a part of the traditional VN heritage of Japanese games, we acknowledge that mature, focused discussions of “loli” characters and routes within a visual novel are valid, and we will allow them within the Visual Novel discussion boards, but beyond those confines, Fuwanovel is just not the place for this topic. We have also clarified our rules for posted or linked images of "lolis" on the boards, which can be read below:
    Brass Tacks:
    If you want to discuss a “loli” character or route in a visual novel, you can do so in the VN boards with the caveat that crude, inflammatory, provocative or aggressive posts will be grounds for a topic’s deletion, without warning Outside the realm of Visual Novels, Fuwanovel is simply not the place to discuss this complicated issue, and we ask you to avoid casual references to-, or discussions about-, pedophilia and the sexuality/sensuality of underage people or characters. This includes avoiding discussion or mention of porn- or sex-simulation games featuring underage or underage-appearing characters to the forums.  Rules for images, avatars, and signatures: Do not post sexual pictures of underage characters. If an image is focused on, accentuates, or exaggerates a character's nipples, vulva, or penis or positions them sensually (body position, wet panties, nearly naked, etc.), you should not post it and it will be taken down. Attitudes of the staff vary significantly on this issue, but this policy is presented – purposefully – without moral commentary. This is a tricky issue which presents real risks for the stability of the site, and ensuring the community’s longevity simply has to come first. 
    Thread rules These rules are meant to keep threads as clean and free of trouble as possible.
    Please try to keep responses on-topic and meaningful. Don't derail threads. Don't spam threads. Don't double post repeatedly. Don't post for the sake of posting. Don't necrobump threads without the intent of continuing the discussion. Don't post seizure inducing GIFs without a spoiler and a warning labeling it as such. Any posts that are seen to fit in these categories or seen to be harmful to the thread risk being moved or deleted, or at worse getting the entire thread locked.
    Additionally some boards have their own specific rules, please see related topics inside each one of Fuwanovel's boards (they are usually pinned at the top).

    Any member, no matter how new, has the right to report posts.
    You will not be punished for reporting any post, even if your report is deemed unjustified*
    *While reporting a post is fine, spamming reports in order to troll/abuse the report system is not and can lead to you to getting a warning.
    In case of doubt:
    If you have any doubts about how to proceed in any situation or if said situation is not listed here, please contact one of the online Global Moderators via Personal Message with your inquiry. Global Moderators have a blue usercolor at the bottom of the forum for easier identification. 
    In case none of them are online during that time, the list of Global Moderators as well as the rest of the Fuwanovel Staff can be found here so you can message one of them.
    Rule Enforcement
    We trust Fuwanovel users to keep their composure when the situation calls for it. In any case of a serious infraction a Global Moderator is responsible for carrying out an appropriate punishment that can handle the situation effectively for both sides.
    Smaller punishments like revoking the ability to post content for a period of time can be given out if the situation calls for it (namely for spamming and trolling), without granting a warning point if a Global Moderator sees fit to do so.
    Warning Points are only given out to reoccurring or serious offenders that do not heed either rules or previous warnings. A Global Moderator is in charge of deciding whether or not a user deserves a warning point.
    Global Moderators are free to give harsher punishments like suspensions if they clearly notice the violation is severe or has ill intent behind it.
    There is a 3 Warning Point cap and when a user receives a 3rd warning point, they acknowledge they are putting their account in jeopardy and risk being banned permanently.
    Do not evade bans, if you create a second account to evade your ban, you risk getting it lengthened.
    If you feel you were not justly banned, you can PM a Global Moderator with your reasoning and that Global Moderator will bring it up for discussion with the rest of the staff to see if it is valid or not.
    In case a warning point was given out and a ban is proven to be unjustified, your warning point will automatically be revoked. 
    In case your ability to post content was revoked and it is proven to be unjustified, it will be rectified.
    Username Changes
    To prevent user-confusion, the ability to change your username at whim has been removed from the user control panel. To change your username, please PM one of the global mods with your desired new user display name and your reason for making the change. Username changes require a strong reason and motivation to be changed, and will otherwise be denied to prevent confusion on the forums.
    User Title Changes
    User titles (the titles you see below your avatar) can be changed at any time by making a contribution to the community.  Here are a few examples of ways to help out.  When you've completed your good deed, please report to a Global Moderator, who can make the change for you.  
    Assisting in coding projects and/or working on the front site; Helping with forums projects; Writing a walkthrough for a game; Writing an article for the Visual Novel Aer blog; Posting 500+ posts on the forums (posts in the "Coliseum of Chatter" do not add to this count); Or something else you can think of! Note: Users with 500+ posts have, in simply posting so regularly, helped to build the site.  Thank you for your contributions!  We hope you'll keep it up.  These users can change their user title at any time from the user CP.
    Definitions
    These definitions serve as guidelines to define certain types of content. In case of doubt on whether or not something fits within one of these categories, a Global Moderator can make the judgement call.
    Spam
    Content without any purpose, coherency or relevance whatsoever.
    Singular spam posts are deleted without warning. If a user makes many spam posts in one thread or singular spam posts across many threads, then they are subject to a punishment.
    Threads or blog posts made for self-promotion (such as links to off-site personal blogs) should be limited to one (either a blog post or a thread) per product being promoted, because such promotion is more easily perceived as spam.
    Derailing
    Going completely off topic in a thread, this can result in the thread being locked or moved to a more appropriate section depending on whether or not it's salvageable.
    Harassment & Abuse
    This involves aggressive pressure or intimidation and can based off of things like racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, etc.
    This will never be tolerated anywhere on the forum, even in private messages, and severe punishment will be applied to any cases of it.
    Posting for the sake of posting
    Posting several times in a thread without trying to move the discussion forward and only to increase post count and/or to troll/spam.
    Necrobumping threads without the intent of moving the discussion forward also falls into this category.
    NSFW
    Content that is too sexually explicit or excessively violent that could offend certain age groups.
    For something to be sexually explicit it must show either genitals, female nipples or sexual acts.
    Trolling
    Starting arguments or upsetting users by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the intent of provoking users into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

    Insults
    An insult is a derogatory remark that labels an individual or group of users. Name-calling is not productive and typically derails the topic by turning the discussion to the credibility of the user(s). It never convinces the other party and often provokes a similar reaction from other posters. The resulting commotion is ineffective for the offender, offensive for the target, distracting for spectators and tiring for the staff.

    Nosebleed got a reaction from LanThief(HUN) in Gaming Board Rules   
    The purpose of this board is to discuss anything gaming related.
     
     
    This forum is for:
    Any game related topics (Video games, board games, TCGs, etc.). Any gaming news topics. This forum is not for:
    Talking about VN content. Forum games (like the "Battle of the Fuwa Guilds" or the "True or False" game). Some other rules:
    Please have common sense when posting, don't make several threads for the same game, don't double post, don't derail, etc. Rant/Rage threads (like the Gamergate thread) are allowed as long as they don't turn into spam or hate threads. It's fine for gaming communities to have their own thread for their game but please remain on topic when posting.  
    PS: This sub board is currently in testing phase to see how well it's recieved, changes to the rules may still occur later on, feedback is also appreciated.

    Nosebleed got a reaction from LanThief(HUN) in New Profile Fields [Accepting Suggestions]   
    Hey let's blow the dust off of this subforum for a bit shall we?
    I noticed we haven't really updated the profile info since... Fuwa was made basically (other than that one time we added Steam to user profiles). I figured I'd go ahead and add some things users might want.
    List of things added so far:
    Twitter has now been added under Contact Methods  Anilist, ANN (Anime News Network) and Kitsu (formerly known as Hummingbird) are now options for those that don't have a MAL account Transgender, Other and Attack Helicopter are now available gender options Projects has now been added under Profile Information where you can specify whatever VN projects you work (or have worked) on. This isn't for me alone though, so I decided to make a thread and ask for people's suggestions regarding what other fields might be useful to have in their profiles.
    Important note:
    These are small fields that will go either under your contact methods or your profile information section. They're meant to be short. Preferrably things like the username you have on the respective website or something along those lines. Because of this, things like Youtube channels have already been ruled out due to the URLs being too long. Keep that in mind when suggesting.
    Furthermore, make sure that your suggestion isn't just for you but is actually something legitimately useful for the users on the forum.

    Nosebleed got a reaction from Delusional in A Guide to BB Codes on Fuwa   
    I'm extremely bored so I decided to make this. there's really no deeper meaning behind it other than it might be helpful to some people.

    This post details all the types of embedding and text formatting you can do on Fuwanovel using BB codes.
    I'll be including even the basic stuff you can do on the text editor for people that may use the forum on mobile devices (since there's no editor there).

    I hope you may find something of use in some of these though~

    Text formatting Codes
    Text properties
    [b]Text[/b] Makes the text bold [i]Text[/i] Makes the text italic [u]Text[/u] Makes the text underlined [s]Text[/s] Makes the text struck Example:



     
    Font Size
    [size=1]Text[/size] Changes to size 8 [size=2]Text[/size] Changes to size 10 [size=3]Text[/size] Changes to size 12 (Normal size) [size=4]Text[/size] Changes to size 14 [size=5]Text[/size] Changes to size 18 [size=6]Text[/size] Changes to size 24 [size=7]Text[/size] Changes to size 36 [size=8]Text[/size] Changes to size 48 Example




    Text alignment
    [left]Text[/left] This sets the text to the left [center]Text[/center] This centers the text [right]Text[/right] This sets the text to the right Example




    Text color

    Note: All color values are in hexadecimal so make sure you know your hexadecimals if you're trying to manually set colors.
    [color=#FF0000]Text[/color] Changes the text color (to red in this case) [color=#00FF00]Text[/color] Changes the text color (to green in this case) [color=#0000FF]Text[/color] Changes the text color (to blue in this case) Example



     
    Alternatively You can also replace "#color" in the following code with one of the preset colors (just copy paste them) [color=#color]Text[/color]  List:



     
    Text font
    [font=arial]Text[/font] Sets the text to Arial font [font=comic sans ms]Text[/font] Sets the text to Comic Sans MS font [font=courier new]Text[/font] Sets the text to Courier New [font=georgia]Text[/font] Sets the text to Georgia [font=lucida sans unicode]Text[/font] Sets the text to Lucida Sans Unicode font [font=tahoma]Text[/font] Sets the text to Tahoma font [font=times new roman]Text[/font] Sets the text to Times New Roman font [font=trebuchet ms]Text[/font] Sets the text to Trebuchet MS font [font=verdana]Text[/font] Sets the text to verdana font Example







    Special BB Codes

    Hyperlinks [url=http://randomurl.com]Text[/url] Hyperlinks the text or image that's between the code. Example:




    Twitter linking
    [twitter]Twitter User[/twitter] Will hyperlink your twitter to your user and add an @ in front. Example




    Spoiler Tags
    [spoiler]Text[/spoiler] This will spoiler the text Example










    Horizontal Rule
    [hr] will add a line that extends across the post Example




    Lists
    This code will make a list with bullets[list] [*]One [*]Two [/list] Example




    Acronym Code
    [acronym='Acronym meaning']Acronym[/acronym] Will give a definition of the acronym when you hover the cursor over it Example




    Member Code
    [member='Fuwa user'] Will automatically generate a hyperlink to a user's profile Example







    Embedding

    Embedding images [IMG]Image URL[/IMG] [img]Image URL[/img] Note: Make sure your URL ends in either JPG, JPEG, PNG or GIF Example



     
    Embedding .GIFV and .GFYCAT
     
    The forum software supports gifv and gfycat format, just paste the video URL and it should auto embedd.
    If it doesn't, use the media code.
     
    Please make sure to spoiler these in order for them not to auto load/loop on slower devices.
     
    Note: Don't hotlink gfycat videos , they will not embed. Just use the regular gfycat page URL (one that doesn't end in .webm)
     
    Example:




    Embedding videos (only works for youtube and Vimeo at the moment)

    All videos from Youtube or Vimeo are automatically embedded on Fuwanovel if you just paste their URL so you don't need a code.

    Example




    Embedding MP3

    All Mp3 URLs are also automatically embedded onto the forums.

    Note: The URL must end in .mp3 for this to work.

    Example




    Note: If you want to just link any type of media in URL form, you can use the hyperlink code.
    [url=http://randomurl.mp3]http://randomurl.mp3[/url] Example




    Embedding Flash
    [media]http://randomurl.swf[/media] Will embed anything flash If you want to edit the dimensions you can do so by replacing #width and #height with the desired values [media]http://randomurl.swf/#width,#height[/media] Example




    Remember these are just the basic codes, you can combine them to do all sorts of stuff too but I'm not going to get into that too much.
    Just make sure that when you're combining you don't mess up the order of the codes, particularly with Special BB codes
    So for example if you want to hyperlink an image, you would use [url=http://randomurl.com][IMG]http://randomimageurl.jpg[/IMG][/url] Never [IMG][url=http://randomurl.com]http://randomimageurl.jpg[/url][/IMG] Example




    And that should cover just about everything you might possibly want to do when formatting a post, though if I missed something, feel free to let me know.

    Nosebleed got a reaction from phantomJS in Ikinari Anata ni Koishiteiru discussion   
    The heroines aren't your standard tsunderes, they seriously all come off as spiteful people that just want to beat the crap out of you whenever they see your face. You are literally considered a cockroach to them and the only time they show hints of love is when they've beaten the crap out of you and then pretend to be "sorry" but just proceed to add insult to injury later on. I know sometimes the protagonist deserves it, but sometimes they just want excuses to beat you up, it's completely ridiculous and stops being funny after the first 10 times.
    I don't know how anyone can lump these girls in the "just tsunderes" category, I legitimately thought this was a VN about bullying when I first read it because that's all the heroines do to the protagonist.
    The common route is a hollow shell of nothingness, I don't know why it's there other than introducing the characters and giving you a basic plot to branch off of.
    The heroine's routes barely change from the common route because the heroines keep being extremly rude people, way past the "just tsundere" line, they literally come off as hating you at times, not that hate where you can see the love behind it, just pure hate. The game tries to make up for all the shit the heroines have done by throwing them into h-scenes with you where suddenly your japanese chinpo makes them go all sweet and shy (quality writing right here), but I genuinely don't think the pain that comes before that is worth the effort.
    Maybe I'm the only person that was amazed at how horrible of a person each heroine in this game really is, but even if I forget about their personalities, all the stories are awful and don't feel connected in the slightest, everything just feels thrown in and makes absolutely no sense in terms of narrative. 
    Saying this game is "below average" is being extremly kind, imo.

    Forum Rules
     
    While Fuwanovel is all for discussion and having fun, we still wish to have a regulated atmosphere that's not harmful to our users, these rules are meant to keep said atmosphere on stable levels. Please read each point carefully.
    Fuwanovel's number 1 rule is Respect and Civility.
    Don't personally insult anybody. Don't be a troll or promote misconduct. Don't bait or harass any user or staff member. We take these offenses very seriously and we hope our users respect this rule above all else.
    General Forum Guidelines
    These guidelines are meant to be followed when posting on our forums.
    Don't embed explicit hentai images or videos on posts/threads, use Spoiler tags/URL form instead and tag it as NSFW. Don't advocate for any real-life crime. This is taken very seriously and will likely result in a permanent ban. Don't post any real life pornography of any kind. Don't provide or request illegal sources for copyrighted material, use legal sources instead. Don't spam the Recent Topics box. Don't post content you know might offensive to someone or a group of people. Don't post staff PMs in public, if you have any issue with how the staff carried something out, talk it out in private with a moderator instead. Don't bring personal issues in public, if you and other user(s) don't get along, please don't bring your strife to the forum. Global Moderators and Board Moderators are responsible for carrying out the rules and it is up to them to interpret them and carry out an appropriate punishment for each situation.
    Lolicon/Shotacon Policy
    Pedophilia is an extremely complicated and sensitive real-life issue, and presents a significant challenge to visual novel communities who want to promote thoughtful discussion but are faced with strict laws on one hand and deplorable internet rhetoric/insensitivity on the other. Many of you are aware of how far back and how divisive this issue has been. To protect the site from legal action and to resolve this issue once and for all, we have chosen to amend the site rules as follows. We're trying to strike a delicate balance here -- acknowledging this is part of the VN medium, and sensitive discussions of these topics are important. 
    The new policy: Fuwanovel is not the place to discuss the nuances of pedophilia – in real life or in entertainment. Because they are a part of the traditional VN heritage of Japanese games, we acknowledge that mature, focused discussions of “loli” characters and routes within a visual novel are valid, and we will allow them within the Visual Novel discussion boards, but beyond those confines, Fuwanovel is just not the place for this topic. We have also clarified our rules for posted or linked images of "lolis" on the boards, which can be read below:
    Brass Tacks:
    If you want to discuss a “loli” character or route in a visual novel, you can do so in the VN boards with the caveat that crude, inflammatory, provocative or aggressive posts will be grounds for a topic’s deletion, without warning Outside the realm of Visual Novels, Fuwanovel is simply not the place to discuss this complicated issue, and we ask you to avoid casual references to-, or discussions about-, pedophilia and the sexuality/sensuality of underage people or characters. This includes avoiding discussion or mention of porn- or sex-simulation games featuring underage or underage-appearing characters to the forums.  Rules for images, avatars, and signatures: Do not post sexual pictures of underage characters. If an image is focused on, accentuates, or exaggerates a character's nipples, vulva, or penis or positions them sensually (body position, wet panties, nearly naked, etc.), you should not post it and it will be taken down. Attitudes of the staff vary significantly on this issue, but this policy is presented – purposefully – without moral commentary. This is a tricky issue which presents real risks for the stability of the site, and ensuring the community’s longevity simply has to come first. 
    Thread rules These rules are meant to keep threads as clean and free of trouble as possible.
    Please try to keep responses on-topic and meaningful. Don't derail threads. Don't spam threads. Don't double post repeatedly. Don't post for the sake of posting. Don't necrobump threads without the intent of continuing the discussion. Don't post seizure inducing GIFs without a spoiler and a warning labeling it as such. Any posts that are seen to fit in these categories or seen to be harmful to the thread risk being moved or deleted, or at worse getting the entire thread locked.
    Additionally some boards have their own specific rules, please see related topics inside each one of Fuwanovel's boards (they are usually pinned at the top).
