Fuwa Regular (3/10)



  1. I like it. I know some were worried about the design a while back (due to leaks), but I think it's nice. I think it's the weakest of playstation line, but not bad. I also like the controller. The price is what has me worried. Either time to save or when it comes out to get a used one (and still save lol). I will say, I've been a PS for a long time. I'd say the PS1 or 4 is the best design (likely PS1), then PS4, and then PS2 and then 3. I hate none of them though. Am excited for the game as well.
  2. I do understand. This is the problem sometimes with sequels. They can go either way. And yeah, Inuyasha was like the for me too. I watched it dubbed first, then subbed. I do like the synopsis, but do worry if I'll like the show. It may not be on par wit Inuyasha, but it can still be good. I do love her work. I still need to read Mao and Rin-ee actually
  3. It's sad no one has replied to this yet, so I will. I am very surprised to see Inuyasha getting a sequel. Honestly, I don't know how to feel. Part of me is happy cause it was my second Anime and first manga, and helped me through a rough time. However, I'm worried about how it'll go. I don't think Rumiko Takahashi is one of the writers, just a consultant, but that's better than her not being there. Then again, much of the old crew is back so it can go either way. I will be optimistic about it and would rather be excited. I do really miss the series, so let's hope for a good sequel.
  4. Np. I also do recommend Saiyuu Danshi. It's a good game actually. But yeah, Camp Buddy would be a good fit for you as well. Also, the other recommendations on here you may like.
  5. Unfortunately, from what I know, there aren't many boy's love visual novels translated, especially high school boy's love. There is heaven.neo-romance translation group. But it may not be easy to find the games anymore (and note these aren't official translations.). These are likely exactly what you want, but like I said it may be hard to get them. As for boy's love visual novels, I have some that you may like that are mainly romance. Sadly, they aren't high school. Seiyuu Danshi https://meyaoi.itch.io/seiyuudanshi Doesn't have high school guys and is more of a dating sim, but I like how the creator handled the romance. I think the romance is decent and really love the main character. There are five main guys, and two sub character to go for. The sim aspect may take a bit to get use to, but it's worth is. Also, the game if pretty fluffy and not super dramatic. It is 18+ though. Camp Buddy https://www.blitsgames.com/news/ Not high school setting, but a camp setting. The art is a bit better than Seiyuu Danshi and there is a sort feminine look boy characters option. This game, like Seiyuu Danshi is quite good and long. Has a little bit more drama. There are five guys to date and the romance is good. Frankly, both these games are good if you want romance and mostly fluff. I have others, but it seems what you're looking for is more romance based. Camp Buddy is a pure visual novel, not dating sim elements, but there are two mini games. A Hand in the Darkness https://ertal-games.itch.io/a-hand-in-the-darkness This is a EVN and a nice one. It is actually a high school setting. Problem is, I'm not sure if you'd be okay with playing an EVN. Down the line, you may want to give EVN's a try because a decent amount of yaoi games are being made from people outside of Japan. There's also a small sequel for this. Mention https://herculiongames.itch.io/full-service I myself do not like Full Service very much due to how barren it feels. It's shallow compared to the previous three in my opinion. But if you like muscular guys, and simple gameplay, you may like it? Try it out if you want. The romance between the guys isn't very good though... Anyway, there are a few others I know, but these seem to fit what you may be looking for (sort of). I'm sorry that there aren't many high school boy love games yet. Heck, even boy love games are rare. However, some are still being made and they look great. Also, the others I know off are good but you may not like because romance isn't the main point though.
  6. Not bad. I do like it overall though agree with fun2novel about the touch pad and buttons. Hoping the system will look nice as well. Am excited
  7. Reading news at first (when this all began), through February. Even now, I stay with the news to a degree, but don't check it often anymore. At this point, I've become very tired...Sleeping is something I do the most sadly. This may be because I have severe depression, and since this began, it's been worse. Suicidal thoughts have remain prevalent recently as well. It's been hard to focus on anime, video games, reading, and writing, along with keeping active. At the moment, I am playing some video games though I hope to read some visual novels, along with watching anime during the nights. Still, it's hard and my depression won't go away. Honestly, if anyone can suggest a good anime and/or visual novel I'm up for it. I'm fine if it's dark a well and read all pairings. It's good to see others doing okay though, or at least finding things to do to calm them and pass the time. For myself, I worry more about my mental state. I am trying though to keep busy.
  8. Well, you just pinpointed why I don't play most otome games lol. That's exactly the reason. The reason I went to the other pairings was because I couldn't take them. Now, I will play them should the MC be okay. Same goes with anime with GxB. Sadly, my love for otome games isn't really here anymore. But it got me more into BxG, so I can read those games better now. Like you, I like fantasy and scifi the most, but like slice of life still. But fantasy and even horror are things I like even outside of visual novels. Sadly, there aren't to many fantasy stories =(
  9. I can understand what you're saying. I'm like that with BxG, but can play anything. Similar to you, I also don't need romance in the story to enjoy it. See I ask this because a poll showed that both men and women preferred Yuri over everything else. I was surprised 0-0. And what you say also is really interesting to. Would more people play BxB, for example, if it was just shounen ai? I wonder.
  10. I'm interested in learning what others really like in terms of pairing. Basically, do you prefer BxG romance or Yuri romance etc. I'm interested because I just saw a poll and saw that both guys and girl really wanted a certain pairing. I was surprised by this honestly. I'm curious to know what type people really like and why.
  11. On one hand, I'm glad they finished the game. On another, it doesn't seem to be a very good one. I mean, for me, it likely wouldn't be the worst, but it's sad that it's not what it wanted to be. I backed this game when it came out and was excited to play (I was the girl for the protag). Cute story but with darker elements can be a great game. Sadly, it appears the devs weren't able to get the story down right. I don't regret backing, but wish I got a better game. Also, sad that the girls are so unlikable. I mean, when I played the demo, they were nothing amazing but okay for me. I loved the art and the premise of being game devs too. Like How to Date a Magical Girl though, they are trying to copy Doki Doki, and though I don't mind if they take some elements from that, neither game did well enough to pull it off. And this one seems to have bad love interests. Well, I do hope they can make a better game next time. I know it's not easy, especially writing. But, good review.
  12. Ah, I'm really sorry. I'm not sure how to do that, but next time I'll make sure not to spoil. It was just hard to explain, though it seems that's not the answer the person was looking for. Really sorry =(
  13. Not sure if I understand your question entirely, but I read Mashiro's route. Oddly, in her route, the game kind of focuses on her more and will switch back to Masaya's point of view. I will say, in the beginning of her route she begins to realize her feelings for him, though struggles on what those feeling are. Eventually Mashiro comes up with a way to tell him, but it doesn't go as planned. After a certain loss though, she goes and cries alone (beliving her love won't come), but Masaya finds her and professes his love for her. This is the first part of her route. Second part focuses on them dating and her match again Masaki. I haven't read the others yet, but am on the second part of Rika. For Mashiro though, I feel like her love for him is better shown in the first part of her route compared to Rika's. However, I think Masaya wasn't handle to well in terms of the confession because he kind of just randomly says to her he loves her and yet we don't really see that. We see how Mashiro has feelings for him. Same with Rika to a degree, though in her route Masaya shows he's growing to like her. Though, for Rika, we kind of know she's grown to like him. I just wish we could see things from her point of view like we did with Mashiro's route. Still, I feel like the confession is better with Rika. Masaya's confession with Mashiro felt weird, but their relationship afterwards is okay. Cliche, but okay. Sorry of this doesn't answer your question though DX. So, to put it simply, for Rika and Mashiro, it doesn't feel like they just went with it and wee see the relationship grow even before the confession. I can see Misaki doing that though, with her begrudgingly accepting.
  14. Np =). And yeah, it does suck that many games don't come to mac. Maybe either play on your old computer if you can or maybe buy a really cheap windows? Vn aren't too difficult to play actually. I have one to play games since sadly mac doesn't do so. But yeah, the game I mentioned are really good and long. But one thing with 07 expansion. Umeniko has two sets of games, one being the answer ark and the question ark. Question ark is the first four stories and the answer arc is the last set. Make sure to play the question arc first. Also, for Higurashi, there are seven episodes out, but one is still needed to be translated. You may want to do Umeniko first, since it's done. Oh, and if you want go here for the 07 expansion games http://07th-mod.com/home/. You can download a patch that will allow you to change the art style if you want, but you'll also get voice acting and non nvl mode. I suggest you try it out because it'll make the game more fun for you =). And for Dc Capo 3, it's super long as well, so these games will give you something to read for a while.
  15. Sorry to say this, but sadly mac doesn't have many Japanese visual novels for it. In fact, the system itself isn't too good for gaming, especially now with the new update. (However I myself with always stick with mac and love it). One JVN that's pretty good that's on mac is DC Capo 3. You can buy it at Mangagamer's site and steam. Another is the 07 expansion games. These are good stories, but unlike DC Capo, don't have much romance. Also, Fatal Twelve, which is a yuri game is good. I'm sure there are some others, but sadly not many are for mac in terms of JVN's. I believe there may be some more, but DC Capo is a big one alnog with 07 expansion games, which are Higurashi and Umeniko
