  1. It's a hard choice, I thought about to tell her, but she is the kind of person that would "accept" without saying too much at first hand, then use it as a weapon when we have an argument. That's the kind of person she is. I don't even come here as much as I did. I'll wait some time before telling here, but it will be a hard decision...
  2. The fact is, it's been 2 month we live together and almost 7 months we know each other, so I am affraid of 2 things: - The fact that I never told her before, if I come to ask her for permission, it will feel like I hidden I liked those things until now - She is kinda vanilla, I was thinking about telling her but I don't know how, because as I said in my first point, I never told her, and if I do nowshe may say "gosh and you waited all this time to tell me that?" and if I try to explain her what are VN, saying "see hony? those are porn game(nuki) and those are not, even with 18+, I read them for the PLOT" I can try to make it sound like it's for a friend, maybe it's the best idea...
  3. She is reading the manga "stray dog", I don't know this at all, I think it's a shoujo but I am not sure. About anime she liked elfend lied and another nakige (I forgot the name). We are kinda far from VN...
  4. She doesn't know VN at all, I'll have to explain from the very beginning. She likes anime/manga so I think it might be okay it I use Stein Gate as an example, but I most likely play 18+ VN in japanese. Those are not nukige because I am not into this stuff. I thought about explaining VN with something soft like Stein Gate or chaos Head Noah, but the main problem is that she doesn't know what VN are at all, and let's say, if I start to explain "see, VN are those things like SG, it's like reading a book" and then later she sees me playing another VN, she will ask me "what is this one?" and sooner or later, with a little search on the net, she'll discover that I hidden that most VN are porn game. Our relationship is kinda vanilla, that's why I don't really want to tell, maybe at ressort at worst...
  5. Hi guys, I recently started to live with my girlfriend, we are somehow happy but there is something that bother me: Did you guys tell your waifu that you are playing VN? We're at home almost at the same time, we are always busy and even in my free time if I tried to play VN, she would see it or hear it because it's not that big at home. The only way for me to play would be at night because she knows I don't sleep that much, so I tried this sometime and one night she sneeked behind me because she thought I wanted to contact someone and cheat on her. (I was playing lol when it happened, guess I was lucky for once) But I cant keep going like this, I feel like I have to give up on VN, I don't want to tell her I learned japanese because of those game, and then she see me as a pervert... I wanted to know how guys did you do? Did you tell her? Do you keep it a secret? I would like the advice of people that have/had the same issue. Thank you.
  6. Seven Days collector's edition on Kickstarter

    Man, I already lived that once in real life when I saw my brother dying little by little in his coma after a bike accident... I have a question for the Fruitbat Factory team: What is the point of this title to present cute heroines and make us suffer because we know from the very beginning that they will die anyway?
  7. I remember someone doing a topic like this with a huge work on h scene (which one were good or not) on a google doc. It was posted around one year ago if I remember right. Now that I think about it, someone has a clue about the name of this topic?
  8. My entire physical visual novel collection

    I have 2 questions: What is the white box of Kara no Shoujo? What is the difference between your version of konosuba and this one with a different cover: http://5pb.jp/games/konosuba/product/
  9. Nekonyan's Two August Announcements

    I guess the annoncement from tomorrow will be Tayutama 2 x)
  10. Wait, that's what you meant by deck for learning grammar? I thought it was a deck to revise grammar lol
  11. Ah, could you share this deck?
  12. Good job, I really liked the definitions thing showed in your example. Did you create this deck or card?
  13. For me, I think the most important part is to give you objectives. Let me explain myself: Let's be honest here, no matter how you look at it, learning japaneseis hardly funny: it's hard (more or less), very different from our own langage, and fucking scary (Hi Onyomi and Kunyomi...) but as long as you really want to reach a goal, this is not impossible, so that was not the main problem for me. On the internet, you can find a lot of guides for beginner, really, so when you want to start to learn japanese, you know where you'll start (kana and the syntax), and you have more than enough information about that on the internet. But the main problem is after that: once you reach an advanced level, you'll want to start reading something (books, manga or visual novel and stuff) and that's where the complicated stuff begin: Reading the real stuff hardly looks like what you learnt. I learnt over 1 000 kanjis, learnt all the syntax explained on 2 japaneses books and Tae Kim's guide, all the possible conjugation for ichidan and godan, but even so, I happen, from time to time, to see a sentence with only basics words, but the sentence itself doesn't make a fucking sense (because there might be a word I never saw used like this or because the purpose of one word is not the same explained in the books). That's the limit of someone is trying to learn japanese by himself: the japanese showed in a book for people aiming to learn japanese won't be the same japanese you'll find in a japanese book aimed for japanese speaker. From this, it's not a matter of fun anymore, I could hardly tell if I was good or not, so I stopped from time to time as this point because I had a hard time to understand what I lacked and how to improve. Just saying that having fun in learning japanese won't prevent you to face this problem. I guess the real solution would be something like a translated script (from a visual novel for example) with long sentance, and explain why the sentence is translated this way and not this way, with some explanation here and here. I am just explaining how I see things and the main problem I encountered while learning japanese, and since you want to do a guide and we are in a community about Visual Novel, it would be nice if you could use those to teach the "true japanese".
  14. 1- Well yes. I remember one of the interlude, as I said, it was weird, because I saw 2 characters talking, but without any name. It was long and not interesting. But since I was really in love with this VN, I remembered almost each interlude. For example, this one where there is 2 males characters talking, one saying he is surprised to see the second coming to him. You can understand that one side is going to betray another, but you can not tell who, when, but you can know why, the interlude a lot of information and give you the true face of some character while when they are in front Takumi, they are pretty much factice (you'll understand this once you finish it). I never played Tsukihime or Fate Hollow Ataraxia. 2- I don't remember that much the illusion, but if MC is able to admit this is an illusion, then he is more or less sane, somehow... 4- Ah, one last example about the routes and informations from Chaos Head Noah. Even if you finish Chaos Head, understand that the females characters other than Rimi are not that much useful, you won't have that much information because they have very few few screen time. But in fact, even if you finish Chaos Head, you won't have all the informations (about the nextgen murder, about the Noah project, etc). I'll give one example with next gen murder (but you can skip because it will be a light spoil): remember the white haired girl that want to avenge her dead sister that jumped from a roof (first case of the nextgen murder), well the said dead sister is in fact alive...
