  1. AX - Anime Expo 2018 News & Announcements

    I wonder if they'll wind up releasing a complete edition that bundles all the content on one disc for PS4. Makes me wonder if maybe waiting for that would be better than just getting the double pack that released not long ago. As for Denpasoft, I was hoping for an announcement for Wagamama High Spec OC. Hopefully that can happen sooner rather than later.
  2. To Heart 2 discussion thread

    Excellent! :D. So it's definitely her and not Tamaki then, because of the above-listed reasons? 2 -
  3. Safe to buy from Denpasoft?

    Okay, so I know this is a stupid question (I seem to ask these a lot) but, still. Is it safe buying from Denpasoft? Like, would I get in trouble for doing so? Are there any concerns or issues with doing so? I really want to buy The Fruit of Grisaia (it's been one of my most anticipated VNs for a while now), and it seems like the 18+ version is the more recommended one: the thread yesterday (as well as several others) swung heavily towards suggesting that, and apparently the cut content does wind up making the VN funnier and advancing the plot. I read a very upvoted comment on Reddit that keeps playing in my head: "I feel bad for people who buy the steam version not knowing what they miss. The dirty jokes are one of the highlights of Grisaia.". Another VN I'd like to get is WagaHigh, and I've posted before about really enjoying the demo, the characters, the art, and the setup, as well as the engine, though with that I'm concerned as there's the Toa route. The thing though is that I've not bought something from an adult store before (I usually buy from Steam or eBay/Amazon for physicals) and I'd of course very much rather not get into trouble for doing so. I don't mind getting the Steam versions of both, and honestly it'd be more convenient (same place as my other games, playtime tracking and chat support), but the prices are about the same. I am over 21 and in the US though. Thanks for any help :).
  4. To Heart 2 discussion thread

    Seeing as I've finished To Heart 2, well, the routes I intend to finish, that is, I wanted to ask a pair of questions that've been bugging me. 1 - Is there a case to be made for calling Konomi the canon heroine? Considering her prominence in the artwork (she features near the center rather often), her prominence in the OP (which focuses more on her than any other character, and shows her both first and last) and the comments about how hers (and Tamaki's) can be considered something of a common route, it seems like it wouldn't be such a far-fetched idea. Plus tbh she's obviously a sucrose-based lifeform. I really liked her haha. 2 - I liked this VN though and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a lighter and more relaxing read. My biggest issue with it was that the routes were quite inconsistent, but the characters were well done and memorable, and as has been said before, there are a lot of elements that have become commonplace in later VNs so it's nice to see them make their start here. I was also really surprised to see quite a few VAs I've recognized from other works: Itou Shizuka (Amagami), Nabatame Hitomi (Noble Works), and Rikimaru Noriko (Majikoi) being some examples. Plus it has a very very good soundtrack, with a lot of relaxing songs that just set your mind at ease when you listen to them. Feeling Heart is my favorite, but there are two other really good ones I'd like to link here: As far as best route I think it'd be Sasara's or Konomi's, as I felt like As far as best character I think it'd be Konomi, with Tamaki and Sasara coming in second and third respectively. Best scene has to be Yuma's first rant, with one of the funniest lines I've ever read: "I hate people like you! I hate them so much I could just pour mayonnaise all over them! You pervert!!!". Though, having said all this I get the feeling I might need to reread at least some parts of the Konomi route :D. Thanks again ittaku for the recommendation, and the translation too, along with all those who helped out along the way.
  5. Reading VNs on the Nintendo Switch

    I think it has the potential to do so. After all look how many VNs came to the Vita (even in English) and the Switch is able to offer that portability that no other current console does. Plus we're already seeing publishers like Spike Chunsoft, Aksys, PQube, and Limited Run Games move over to Switch and those are all publishers that've had a hand to play in pushing VNs on Vita (especially if you include otomes in the definition). Couple all of that with a really nice screen and hardware, and a large and growing install base, and it stands to reason that it could wind up being common for VNs to come onto Switch and possibly get more people interested in reading them. As for me I would enjoy reading VNs on it, and I'm hoping somehow that we get the Switch version of Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm to come over (not sure that that's likely though), along with anything else. I originally liked playing VNs on TV (weird, I know) but being able to combine that with playing while out and about would make it incredibly convenient and easy to play.
  6. Steam Summer Sale 2K18

    I'd been planning on skipping this sale and going for the Christmas sale instead, as I already have a lot I want to play / read truth be told but I think I'll bite anyways. Planning on getting G-Senjou no Maou, Subahibi, and The Fruit of Grisaia. Also possibly Planetarian and Lucy: The Eternity She Wished for, if I have the money left over. You can say that again...
  7. What Anime are you watching now?

    Haha fair enough. I mean, I'm enjoying it and it's keeping my interest but it's not as amazing as I was expecting given the ratings. I'm still looking for the next, spend-the-whole-day-watching-and-doing-little-else, "this is one of my favorite stories ever" anime that leaves me wishing I could watch it again from the beginning without knowing anything about it. I thought this might be it but it isn't.
  8. What Anime are you watching now?

    I'm watching Psycho-Pass atm so I can go through the VN. It's not bad, and it's holding my interest, but I wouldn't say it's amazing. Maybe a solid 7 or a low 8 out of 10.
  9. The limited edition of princess evangile

    Drat :(. It's so nice looking, too... *sighs*. SO tempting... Please do! There are far too few "deep dive" pics of physical VNs so adding more cannot be a bad thing :D.
  10. Anime question

    This. Alternatively, download K-Lite Mega Codecs Pack and try MPC-HC (it's bundled in the installation) if you want to try another option and/or don't like VLC for some reason.
  11. A Sky Full of Stars - +18 Restoration

    Stupid question, but how often is it that you'll have a VN be voiced, except for its H-scenes?
  12. What are you playing?

    YES! Tokido Saya Best Girl! :D. I really liked how the route tried something different and honestly managed to pull it off. The character too was really excellent though she in several ways needed help XD. The scene where That was an excellent route :D.
  13. The limited edition of princess evangile

    Was literally just looking at the store page for this. Thanks for the post. I'm super tempted to buy it (it's one of my favorites and I've yet to find a romance VN that's quite as good) but at the same time I've already read the All Ages release and can't help but feel like the money could instead go towards reading something new. Does anyone know if Mangagamer do reprints of physical copies?
  14. Your favorite routes + endings

    Hmmm. Tough one to answer. I'm just going to list them but not in order as that'd be too difficult Haruka route - Little Busters: This route really hit me on a personal level. I thought she was just a pest and silly, but that wound up being a really wrong impression. I do think the route was a bit overdone to elicit feels, but even so the themes it touched on and the struggles she had to face had me riveted to my seat for a long while, and left me thinking about the route even months later. Sasami route - Little Busters: As with the Haruka route, this route really hit me on a personal level. I really liked her whole "OHOHOHOHO" ojousama schtick throughout the VN and when it came to her route I didn't know what to expect, so when things started happening I was really really hit hard. True route - Steins;Gate: This was really well done. Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works (plus Sunny Day ending). I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with UBW, having watched the anime and thought it was too convoluted, then going back and reading the VN and all three routes in order. It's my favorite route in FS/N though, for a couple of reasons. I'm biased towards tsunderes (especially those with twintails) but Tohsaka is a great example. Not just that but the route itself feels pretty balanced IMO, and the action and events strike the right mix of feels + action + philosophy, where I felt Heaven's Feel went over the top. As for Sunny Day - I don't really like the main ending (it feels kind of just "there" to me) so while Sunny Day is far shorter and less descriptive I thought it made sense even if it is a bit cliche in the end. Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate - Chisato route: This might be a bit controversial but I liked the route and Chisato herself (again, twintail tsundere :D). I'd say most of the characters were pretty well done, but between the VN's focus on Chisato and the "hook" they used, I felt was unique and well done without going too far off the rails. That hook, especially, touched on a few themes that I felt were poignant, and though I wasn't entirely happy with the execution it still was a pretty solid, enjoyable, and memorable route.
  15. What kind of VN do you enjoy the best?

    Hmm. Why not give Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate a try? Sounds like it might be up your alley.
