Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. 1) I lived in Japan for some time, so learning the language was my top priority at the start. 2) Two and a half years, but only cause I was not interested in Visual novels before. 3) It was easy, I was already at JLPT N1 level and studying intensively, the kanjis was not complicated either, so no trouble in my first reading. 4) No, and never used.
  2. Getchu Bishoujo Game Awards 2018 are out

    Worst top 3 that I've seen in Getchu awards. Rance in the second place says much about 2018.
  3. http://seiya-saiga.com/game/leaf/wa2.html
  4. Another year of weak Japanese releases (in my opinion), if you are not a Yuzusoft/Key fan that can digest anything that they toss at you, I can think of Haru to Yuki, Maoten and Shogun-sama wa Otoshigoro0. Lowering the level slightly, Butterfly Seeker and Hataraku Otona no Ren'ai Jijou 2 can be interesting.
  5. Your Tips to Finishing VN's

    Don't farm MMORPG's while you are reading; Don't farm Mobile games while you are reading; Don't farm at all. Most of the times after the first hour playing I already know if the vn is finishable or not and just drop what is utterly garbage (like 100% of giga titles not named Baldr).
  6. VN with a well developed childhood friend heroine

    Hey, i warned that there's a "twist" in her route, don't kill the surprise. But thanks to that i remembered the best osananajimi route of all utsuges charages: Ayumu from Natsuyume Nagisa.
  7. VN with a well developed childhood friend heroine

    Aina from W.L.O. if you want a good comedy story. Sena from Koi x Shin Ai Kanojo and Yomi from Himawari no Kyoukai to Nagai Natsuyasumi if you want a osananajimi story with a little "twist".
  8. Charages with actual plot

    It's IxSHE Tell, a slightly above average moege from Hooksoft. The character is Kozuka Yui.
  9. Charages with actual plot

    Though i not fully consider a nakige or a plot title, Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai is one of the best character-oriented novel that i played, Manatsu no Yoru no Yuki Monogatari if you want a Key style nakige and Irotoridori no Sekai if you like the Favorite type of story.
  10. Charages with actual plot

    Excluding nakiges, maybe something like Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou, Minamijuujisei Renka(more on the comedy side) or something like Fortune Arterial, that's what i can push from my memory of the lighthearted side.
  11. That's a surprise, i remember spending at least fifteen hours more in HoshiOri than Hatsukoi, maybe i skipped too much in the parts where the protag is the personification a complete retarded. Btw, in that comparison, you included the appends of Hatsukoi or just the base game?
  12. HoshiOri is probably in my top 3 charages of all time, so it's good to see more people have access to that piece of art, but it will take a while to translate the whole thing, that game is really enormous. And one more thing: Forget everything from Hatsukoi, he is like a garbage in fire when you compare with HoshiOri.
  13. New untranslated PTR list

    Everything from Shumon Yuu, especially Kitto, Sumiwataru Asairo Yori mo,
  14. VN Special: Reader's Choice of the Month

    Nukitashi can be a good read depending on how the comedy will be. Considering that the writers are rookies i will wait for the opinion of some eroge sommelier before make my mind. That game dropped in my ranks basically because of the Circus syndrome that is affecting BaseSon, after 5 or 6 other Shin Koihime i can't see this game in a good light.
  15. VN Special: Reader's Choice of the Month

    July releases are so bad that will force me to read Nekopara Extra, even Nitro+ has been in a downward spiral for some time.
  16. Non-lewdable Coconut >>>>>>>>>> Lewdable Coconut
  17. Senshinkan Ture Route

    Try clear one bad end first, if that doesn't work use the save available in seiya saiga, if this also doesn't work it's probably a bug, so try checking updates.
  18. (8/1 update) Results of the honorifics survey

    Given the demographics of the vn readers in the west, keeping or cutting honorifics is not much more than a stylistic choice. Honorifics is something not too problematic, but it made me think how some hard situations (like kanji puns) are handled.
  19. Sooooo...is "Summer Pockets" the next big Key VN?

    After Yuu finished the script of the heroines routes, Maeda saw that the game need more "Key magic", then he made Yuu write some family drama, cus Maeda only know to force cheap melodrama that way, so in the end we have good heroine routes(most of the time) and two last routes that disrupt from the rest and are boring at least. It's a decent tittle, could be much better, but the "Key style" with cheap drama and predictable supernatural elements make it worse, in my opinion. Maybe the problem is that i already read that type of story a thousand times. If you like Key novels, it's a good vn, though little than Clannad, more than Rewrite. But in my metric, nothing exceptional.
  20. VN's with ex-gf heroines

    Golden Hour and Sekai de Ichiban Dame na Koi, though in the last they are divorced.
  21. Sry, i don't see the food chain title the first time that i read the diagram, sometimes my selective reading just stop working, the pyramid make sense now. Nukiges are undoubtedly the big base, but they are a strange base, in a future erogedoom i could see them surviving without much damage, but being unable to save more than themselves, they are like a big non-structural base. And them, with the next levels being moege and charage, you reach the actual situation where they almost don't support their own weight and risk everything above to ruin with them. About ratings, nowadays i just say i like, it's meh or i dislike, but obviously never made sense to give the history of a charage the same importance as in a chunnige. One curious thing about the vn community is how much discrepancy we could have between "veterans" ratings, it's not uncommon to see two veterans with similar tastes having a difference of three or four points in the same vn in vndb.
  22. The first error is considering popular franchises better than trash when they are radioactive garbage.
  23. 10 reasons real life is like terrible kusoge

    Real life need more free gachas
  24. Any recommendations?

    Well, the poll only have AAA titles (maybe excluding Kara no Shoujo), but every work are very different from each other, so it break down to what you want now. WA2 is probably the best "soap opera" drama vn that you will read, but if you are not into dramatic dragging love triangles (the soap opera special) things could be a little tiring in some parts. I recommend Oretsuba, a very solid title despite the low popularity comparing to the others on the poll, somehow a unique work in some aspects and the best that Ou Jackson write so far (not as if he is a masterpiece writer, but well, he does his job).
