  1. New When They Cry game preview

    It's called Kikonia no Naku Koro Ni. I never played Umineko or Higurashi (I'll fix it someday, I swear!!!!) but damn, this look cool. Thoughts?
  2. VNR is back online!

    VNR now have a new server, so it's fully functional again!!!! Here's some instructions: - Go here http://vnr.aniclan.com/ and make a new account if you want to upload subs and terms (I think it works better logged in than as a guest). You can synch it with your old sakuradite account so you can keep your language preferences and things uploaded. - After that, you can upload your subtitles files stored in VNRfolder/Cache/Subtitles/xml/(important!) and upload the terms dict (if you didn't add anything private, you can skip this). Since it is a new server, it's pretty much empty until someone adds something into it. - The VNR compatible with the new server can be downloaded here: http://vnr.aniclan.com/upload/Visual_Novel_Reader(EN).rar (latest version) - You have to add all games with the wizard for it to recognize. However, if you didn't delete your old VNR, it will open with all your games already in the springboard. - Just one time while I was testing it ramdomly crashed, so it seems to be a stable version. Have fun, people! UPDATE: Based on people's questions: - Want to login in aniclan? Use your new name and password. Want to login in VNR? Use your sakuradite name and password. (For now, Dangetsu may change it in the futute) - Can you read logged as guest? Yes, you can. Can you add things in the shared dictionary logged as guest? I don't think so (Never worked for me, needs more testing) - VNR says it's a unknown game? You'll need to manually select the right text thread before you can use it. After that, it will work normally. Usually, the default option isn't UTF16, so if no subs are showing, select UTF16 right away! (UTF16 is the most common, but if it doesn't work, try UTF8)
  3. Now that I noticed, all of my favorites are horror VNs and start with S. All of them have a special place in my heart, even if some aren't "masterpieces": Shingakkou ~Noli me Tangere~ (JVN, untranslated, long): characters, plot, horror, everything was just so good. Saya no Uta (JVN, translated, short): awesome atmosphere and soundtrack, I'll take these gruesome descriptions over gruesome CGs. Sweet Pool (JVN, translated, medium): this shit was so tense, I was on the edge of my seat all the time the plot was moving forward. Soundless (EVN, short): the one VN I read the fastest and the only one I read twice. I was really invested.
  4. Hidden Pearls

    Yay, that's like 70% of my VNDB list maybe Kikokugai ~The Cyber Slayer~? it's on 7.47, still counts Cool cyborg fights, what's not to love? Although this one is not that unknown, I think I was the one late to the party also +1 to EoSD for Busy Person. I laughed too much in Marisa's path.
  5. Mosaic preferences in Visual Novel H-Scenes

    I don't really mind them, as the best part, the butt, is already uncensored
  6. Oh damn, this art is indeed gorgeous!!! Best of luck to this project~
  7. To be honest, I understand the need to tag content and stuff, but people seriously went overboard in the VNDB page. I didn't read it, but I'm guessing 10% of the stuff tagged there also only makes 0% of Subahibi, and yet it'll make it way easier to be blacklisted.
  8. Oh, I actually agree with you. I read that the CG only stays on screen for, what, a minute? I really can't stomach bestiality, but I can see myself bearing with it for a short while for the sake of a good plot. The thing is: not everyone is willing to do the same. What I tried to say is that a bestiality tag, sexualized or not, disgusting or not, just being there is enough to scare people away from it. More than that, if you have the bestiality tag blacklisted on VNDB, Subahibi even fails to appear in any search results. Because the tag is there.
  9. Sadly this. As we can see going by how stuff like Nekopara are highly successful, people buy their eroge for their ero. The fact that Subahibi in particular have ultra niche fetishes like bestiality and futanari also doesn't help in attracting that crowd either.
  10. Free Online Visual Novel

    Oh my, oh my, I love some charming indie stuff, gimme gimme Thanks for sharing~ I'll definitely try some of those!
  11. What are you playing?

    Eeeerrr not really? 99% of the scenes are so generic vanilla IKEA that they are quite boring to read tbh maybe not in the fandisc, but the base game is your average gay sex I mean, it's not that some scenes aren't weird because of some specific plot points and twist, but I think the implications are weirder than anything that's on the text or the CGs are
  12. sweet pool hype thread!

    Youji is best depressed husbando if you ever need one Change my mind
  13. We all knew that, dear Zaka-chan, but let us throw the guy a bone for his hard work editing that. It's totally not because our meme game is too weak in the dawn of any this day.
  14. ^Totaly this. Okay sure, unnecessary attacks and insults are indeed the worst and shouldn't be endorsed in any way, but you do realize you give power to those people in the instant you just parrot what they say over and over again. You mention "kamige" in the text, but what do you mean with that? Most of the time it's some game that Moogy, Conjueror, you name it, liked. People forget it's just their opinion, they're free to say it, but it's not absolute truth. There's absolutely no problem to disagree with them. I bet that 90% of the people that vote for Muramasa in those localisation polls every year have absolutely no idea what that VN's plot is about. So stand for your own opinions, be a proud EOP if that's what you want to be. If you're satisfied with what you have now, who cares what they're thinking. There's plenty of translated stuff that's good that should keep fans occupied for a long time, so why not look at what you have instead of begging for what others say it's good (that's maybe not even that good in the first place)? You say that Clephas minding his own business, reading only what he likes (well, for the most part, I guess) is a bad thing, but some people really need to do the same.
  15. My top five visual novels for 2018 that I read.

    somehow I read 33 VNs in 2018 nevermind that most of them were really short As for my five favorite, in no particular order: Kikokugai -The Cyber Slayer- (read in February): Currently sitting as my second favorite VN, I would never guess I would like this one this much. Regardless of weird martial arts shenanigans, Taoluo's journey of revenge had me glued to my computer until the very end. What a good MC he was. And protecc little robot Ruili. Rinjin -Neighbor- (read in November): I wanted to read this for halloween but oh well. I love the whole haunted house type of plot, but Phenomeno was really underwhelming and forgetable. This one have a way more likable cast and it have an old game aesthetic (monochromatic, no sprites, little screen shakes for the spooky parts) that made me really love it overall, even if it's not particularly innovative. Soundless (read in May): A lot of people were recommending this one and boy I'm glad I read it. What a ride. A must for denpa fans. And yes, the art grows on you. Tsukihime (finished in December): Maaan, it's already 4 years since I read Fate so I really wanted more Nasu. Of course, since Tsukihime is older is a lot more unpolished than Fate, but it was a cool read regardless. I really liked Akiha's route, but Hisui is my best girl. Nie no Machi (only read 2 out of 4 routes as of today): 85% of japanese BL VNs are plot oriented rather than character oriented. Which is fine, since I really prefer plot driven stories anyway. Or that was what I thought. This game's interactions between the characters are really good and the cast is so charismatic and cool, I really wish to find more BL character oriented VNs. There's also a bit of plot and romance in here as well and everything blends really well. Surely hoping the other half is also good www
  16. VN Survey

    Sorry for intruding but it can't be helped.
  17. On the "games for girls" side of things, I think 2018 was a pretty solid year. We got the localization of both Psychedelica games, and Sweet Pool recently. For Japanese releases, there were Cendrillon Palika as a Switch exclusive (as the Vita is dying in the West because Sony itself is trying to kill it, it's a good thing to expand the market), Piofiore no Banshou, a fandisk for Collar x Malice, and some great BL games from first-time developers, like Mahoutsukai to Tenshi to Akuma and Nie no Machi.
  18. Favored text box presentation in VNs.

    I vote for being able to see the CG though I don't really care either way, but you asked for my favorite
  19. Merry Christmas Fuwa!

    Merry Christmaaaaas!~ Have a comfy pic of what I totally wanted to be my house, cutie included.
  20. Bring me your dankest visual novel memes!!!

    I was thinking of choosing a narration screenshot but
  21. Koikatsu

    I actually had a lot of fun with AA2. But my play style was... unorthodox, to say the least. I usually created a bunch of characters from the same media (or from some original fic I wrote), yeah that character maker was really cool best part, and then just threw them to fate and watched how close to canon the relationships went. God, some were spot on, while some failed results got me to watch fated enemies fucking
  22. solidbatman AMA v3: re

    did he bleed?
  23. It's that time of the year again. Time to reflect on everything you made of good and bad in the year. But who cares about getting chained down by your past forever huh? So let's skip that part and look forward to the future! To what we can (and can't do) to make Fuwanovel great... again? Did we ever were great? Debatable. So anyways, let's all collect suggestions of changes we want to see here in the coming year. If you're feeling a bit uninspired, I suggest to vote for one of the wonderful suggestions I make below. Because I thought long and hard (aka 3 minutes, rough estimation) in the well being of our beloved dysfunctional community. Create a pinned "Translation Salt" thread under Visual Novel Talk, because lately every single release gets this; Rename Walkthrough section to "SeniorBlitz's Secret Dungeon"; Rename Translation Projects to "Fan Translations Burial Ground" because lately they're mostly dropped anyway; Create a board "Introduce Yourself and Never Speak Again" under Introduce Yourself because yep; Rename Community Coordination and Feedback to "Tay and Co. Burial Ground" (I'm sorry Tay, we love you); Create a pinned "Looking for Hentai Animation or Visual Novel (Powered by Monta93TM)" thread under Anime/Manga Recommendation; Rename Leaderboard to...... anything tbh no one will notice kek kthxbye
  24. sweet pool hype thread!

    Started this afternoon. Those HD backgrounds are majestic. So far I got two choices with those nerve things on the screen, an amazing dissonant soundtrack that's best when it's hurting my ears, and Midorikawa Hikaru. Saya no Uta vibes intensifies
  25. sweet pool hype thread!

    they mean exactly the same (if you mean the genre), except yaoi have a derogatory origin and connotations, so let's stick with BL, shall we? I explain it better at shameless self promotion:
