    Well, we should be friends forever.  You have impeccable taste.  


     
    I'm really glad to see you jumping onto the forums! Welcome!  When you say that you've hovered around Fuwanovel for a while, was it around the Visual Novel Aer blog? Just the main (download) site?

    i would have different thoughts had i not read your post before watching the episode. as it was, at the end i was all "huh. that's a thing that just happened."
     
    while i won't lie and say i saw it coming, i knew something was coming and it kind of killed any surprise that would have been. i did expect something to happen that would hint at a second season, and that was not it. i was right about annie, though, so at least there's that.
     
    edit: it's not that the bar is too high, you guys just can't tell where it's set because i keep taking it down to beat people with. it's not unlike ryoji's chain of command; it's the chain he goes and gets to beat me with until i realize who knows more about anime around these parts.

    Summary

    Shikanosuke Maejima is a student at the Missionary school, Oubi Academy. He doesn't attend his club, he doesn't put much effort in his studies, all he does is show up at his part time job; in short, his life could be better. One day, he meets a strange girl, Kirari Shiino, at work and before he knows it, they've formed a punk band. The band consists of Shikanosuke, Kirari, his childhood friend Chie Isurugi, and a rich but weak young lady by the name of Sarina Kashiwara. The four of them are members of the Second Literature Club, which has hardly any active members and is already scheduled to be disbanded. This band is their chance to stand out and give one final farewell at the Culture Festival.

    Kira☆Kira follows the group from their start at the culture festival to destinations they'd never have dreamed of. This game tells the story of love, friendship and -- of course -- Rock'n'Roll!



    Ending Guide / Suggested Route Order

    Kira☆Kira has three heroines: Kirari, Chie, Sarina. Each has a route, and after completing the "Good Ends" of all three routes, a "True End" route becomes available to the player. There are four "Bad Ends" in the game.

    NOTE: This guide will provide walkthroughs for the GOOD ENDS of each heroine's route, as well as for the game's "True Route". "Normal End"s, "Bad End"s, and other information necessary for the 100% hunters out there can be found in the Gamefaqs's source (located at the end of the guide in the "Soucre" section).

    Here is what i did:
     
    1.Downloaded game from Fuwanovel's torrent
    2.Copied the hole folder with the game inside it to another harddrive (so i could play and seed it at the same time)
    3:Opened the folder and ran "Make_Rewrite_Work2.bat"
    4:Ran the "rewrite-r4.exe" patch.
    5:Opened up "region and language" went to the administrativ tab and changed system locale to japanese.
    6: Reboot and opened "SiglusEngine.exe" worked like a charm. 
     
    Run both the bat's and exe's as Admin.

    Tay reacted to Nayleen in A long overdue introduction   
    Subtitled: How Fuwanovel/Aaeru saved my life.
     

     
    Hello dear Fuwanovel community,
     
    Many people around the forums and IRC already know me under nicknames like "the Fuwanovel coder", various variations of my alias like "Naynay", "Naylicious", or simply "the German" (because I'm the only active German person on IRC as far as I know). In real life I'm called Timo by coworkers and family and "Dieter" by very close friends who know the origin of that nickname.
     
    I'm working as a professional web developer for a few years now, but have been creating web sites for various purposes for more than 10 years already, mostly for private servers for Ragnarok Online and Lineage 2 back in the day and later guild homepages and forums when I was actively playing World of Warcraft.
     
    Not too surprising that I signed up here and immediately PMed Aaeru back when she was asking for PHP help for the site as I have just been waiting for this opportunity. Many people ask what keeps me going for me to invest quite a lot of time, even going as far as reworking the entire backend and quite a lot of the frontend AND introducing many new features to a site I have absolutely no relations with.
     
    There are two reasons for that, one is very simple while the other is quite complex, the first and easy one being that I was looking for a project like I did 10 years ago for quite a lot of time; Now that I'm professional and not just a random script kid I really wanted to start making a name for myself, so I loved the idea on working Fuwanovel because it's a site about something I hold very dear, Visual Novels.
     

     
    Now the other one is quite complex and reaches back about as long as I can remember. I've got crippling depressions and anxiety issues, bad enough for me to feel too powerless to even leave my bed save for basics like eating, drinking and sanitary needs. Most people don't even notice it except when I vanish for weeks at a time - because I may be shy and pretty reserved, but I love getting to know people and am fairly talkative once I warm up to someone, so they can't even imagine me being depressed. I'm introverted (meaning social interaction expends energy for me) but generally love being around people I know and feel I need social interaction to function properly.
     
    This is also why staying at home also depresses me even further, until I either snap out of it or it spirals completely out of control like it did last winter, where I stayed at home for a whole five months. Which, as most people can imagine, is long enough for my medical attests not being enough for me to keep my job.
     

     
    So I was depressed, missed social contact - my best friend who used to force me to go out with him when I was feeling down was working in the US, so he wasn't around to save me from the downward spiral I was in - and about to lose my job (which wasn't perfect, but had its fun days and at least paid the bills), spiraling everything even further out of control.
     
    All I did during that time was sleep, eat, drink, shower and read. I read the Visual Novels I torrented earlier that year but never came around to read because of work and other stuff leaving me too tired to even read in the evenings. It didn't take me too long to either finish or tire of them, I simply didn't have enough; Going through the hassle of searching VNDB for new translated Visual Novels that interested me and then having to torrent them, find and apply the TL patch was too much of a hassle at the time.
     
    I was seriously considering just ending my life right there, because reading Visual Novels made me tear up and feel for the characters, it's the most touching medium for me because of the combination of graphics, music and writing - especially the songs in some of them and acted as kind of a substitute for all the social interaction I was missing out on because of my depressions.
     
    That was when I found Fuwanovel and its easy-to-use interface, most VNs were prepatched so everything was pretty easy for me to work out. I started and finished HoshiMemo, G-Senjou no Maou and the MajiKoi partial patch and began reading Rewrite. They kept me going long enough for the worst to tide over, for me to finally pick up the broken pieces of myself again and start getting back into life again, get back on medication and search for a therapist to work this out once and for all, as I was having these downtimes annually.
     

     
    Fuwanovel literally saved my life; It was my main motivation for wanting to help out when Aaeru was asking for help on the site and it still keeps me going today, 3 months and thousands of lines of code later; I owe this site so much, and I love the community and working on new features with everyone involved.
     
    A special shout-out here to: Naomi, Aaeru, Tay, solidbatman, shcboomer, Kendjin, Rakushun, DrKleiner, Lewycool, Zakamutt, ThatPlayer and Mephisto - and everyone else I'm forgetting to name explicitly. Please stick around so I may never lose interest in the site.
     
    I hope everyone who reads this enjoys this small, very personal write-up. I'm looking forward to continue working with everyone to keep this site running and become even more awesome, complete and more widely known with each passing day. I love you guys.

    It's my pleasure to announce a new forums moderator: Nayleen!
     
    Nayleen has been an enormous asset to Fuwanovel: 
    Underneath the attractive colors and layout of Fuwanovel.org, Nayleen has completely gutted, rebuilt, and optimized everything.  Take a look at this blog entry which details some of his work. He orchestrated and did an extensive Admin panel redesign Nayleen helped facilitate many UI and BBCode edits to the forums Current projects are aimed at more community participation in the form of a faq and walkthrough generator Nayleen is also working on a user reviews system (!)  
     
    Another important contribution Nayleen has made was tireless assistance and guidance during the site outage this last week. With a combined 120 man hours between us, there's no doubt that we'd be lost without him.  During that time, I was impressed with his humility, kindness, and dedication to Fuwanovel.  I consider him a friend, and one of the nicest people I've met.  We also shared a hilarious moment that probably doesn't make sense to anyone else.
     
    Nayleen will have admin permissions so that he can help us work directly on CSS and similar web elements.
     
    Please allow me to be the first to congratulate Nayleen!  I hope you'll join me in celebrating this change!

    Tay got a reaction from Cyrillej1 in H-Scenes. Really necessary?   
    A Note Before Reading: I realize this isn't a topic to take lightly, but I'm interested in hearing other people's viewpoints on the subject. Historically they're a major part of the medium, and so I feel they're worthy of some discussion.
    *********

    I'm not a fan of H-Scenes. I love VNs too much to give them up, but when *those* scenes come up I generally click through at high speeds, looking away kind of awkwardly. (Now, I realize that there are two types of H-Scenes: ones intended to be "tasteful", and others in games which are blatantly sex-oriented. All of my comments are directed to the former, as the latter are... well... they are what they are.)

    Is it because I'm "afraid" of sex or sensuality? No way. I'm happily married and therefore have a healthy context to this stuff. Rather, I feel like H-scenes cheapen the VN experience. I understand that these scenes can represent a culmination of romance between two characters, but I don't understand why they have to be so graphic.

    I feel like these scenes are included in VNs for the same reason they're included in most AAA movies: the obligate sex-appeal to be used for advertising.



    That's the short version of my opinion, more or less. I'm interested in hearing what others think. Again, I realize this isn't the easiest topic to discuss, but I'm interested in sounding out.

    That's a good expression of the crux of this thread: it all depends on why one plays a VN.

    Personally, I love the interactivity and incorporation of audio, visual and reading to present a story. I also love the medium's ability to have significant slice-of-life elements (which isn't practical or interesting in most mediums).

    Yet, I'm also a romantic at heart. I love love stories, especially slice-of-life love stories. The romance is really important (as it often reminds me of great memories with my now-wife).

    Despite liking the romance, however, I don't like the sex scenes. The h-content is usually awkwardly done, sexist in varying degrees, and comes of as fanservice of the worst sort, usually playing exclusively to male power fantasies. Not to mention grossly exaggerated anatomy.
