  1. The VN does a short introduction of the characters, however I do think it would be quite a benefit to have watched the anime. One thing I would like to mention though is that my review of Rinne Utopia might be a bit heavily positive based on it managing the routes and romance much better than other visual novels based on anime that I have read, though if you compare it to other well regarded visual novels it might not really stand out in this regard.
  2. I made this list almost 3 and a half years ago, making this list and maintaining it has taken a fair amount of effort, but for the most part I thought it wasn't too bad and updating it gave me a good insight into how scores on vndb would change after english releases and in general just a good overview of the official publishers of visual novels in english. However the last few months I really kind of stopped caring that much for this list and updating it became more of a chore. One reason is probably that I have been at this for quite a while about 3 and a half year is a fairly long tim
  3. I made this video where I talk about visual novel kickstarter focusing on how good they are at delivering the kickstarter rewards.
  4. Here is from Nekonyan's blog late March regarding Dracu Riot. So a HD remaster seems to be what is holding it up at the moment. "Wow, this list got pretty short, huh? Wait I think I’m missing one… Oh, right! I guess this is a good place to start for today. Dracu Riot, huh. You guys have been waiting very patiently for a really long time for this game, and we know you want to know what the holdup is. We’ve seen the comments don’t worry. There IS a reason for it, however, and we can finally talk about it now! The truth is… Dracu Riot is getting a full HD Remaster and re-release in J
  5. If it has a physical copy available and I want it I will probably not wait on sale as it might sell out and sales for physicals are rare. If it is digital I will probably wait for a sale unless it is something I really want to start reading as soon as possible. At the moment I have a backlog of 57 VNs and most likely the VN will be on sale before I would have gotten around to it. So basically I have too large of a backlog to justify buying digital at full price.
  6. I have made a series of videos talking about some of the visual novels that are based on anime, this is the first part. These are basically mini reviews I have done for the visual novels based on anime I have read.
  7. Having read about 15 VNs based on anime the Date a Live one is in my opinion the best of the visual novels based in anime so ye I would probably go for that one, not only due it it being more easily accessible but also the higher quality.
  8. Noticed the konosuba VNs on your wishlist, they aren't really bad VNs but they certainly pale in comparison to the anime in my opinion, would give the VNs about 6/10 while the anime 9/10. Shinpan also has a problem with long segments of the VN lacking voice acting and the other konosuba VN has a needlesly complex gameplay system making it a pain in the ass to get into the different routes. Figured I would tell you as it is quite hard to find information on most VNs that are based on anime.
  9. Welcome to fuwanovel Considering you seem to like Nekopara I would recommend The Ditzy Demons Are in Love With Me as it has the same artist and writer and has a very similar feel just a bit more perverted. Also are you able to read japanese? Looking at your wishlist on vndb it seems a fair amount of VNs you have on your wishlist are not translated.
  10. Here is part 2 of my journey through visual novels that are spinn-off titles of anime.
  11. Otama in Nisekoi Yomeiri isn't actually a heroine but rather a cute loli that has importance for the VN. There is no romance with her and no route dedicated to her.
  12. These types of VNs generally aren't that impressive. A few I would consider good but mostly they are just decent enough and that generally means an okay enough read primarily from having characters you already like and the interactions between them being decent and not from a interesting or great story. Some are also just really horrible, will get to some of the really bad ones in later parts. About the Umaru VN what impressed me the most was that they really went in far with the romance with ebina compared to what other similar VNs based on anime tend to do (btw this is still very
  13. Ebina one is romance, as for Kirie and Sylphinford it is more so about their connection to their respective brothers, not incest like but just things like getting along better and understanding them better. As for Umaru her routes also kind of is about her connection to her brother in a non incest way, what she will become in the future is seperate from the routes and the typical ending and is just kind of a bonus ending after the ending.
  14. one for the gremlin Umaru, one for UMR her gaming identity and one for outside Umaru. Then there is also one ending for Ebina one for Kirie and one for Sylphinford. On top of that there are as I mentioned extra endings after that where Umaru ends up in some proffesion depending on stats.
  15. I made a video where I talk about visual novels that are spinn-offs of anime, this is part 1, planning to release the rest of the parts with 1 week between each part.
  16. I have decided to stop with these reviews where I do a short review and show the physical edition, but I have recently made a video where I talk about visual novels that are spinn-offs of anime so for anyone that liked getting more info on those titles you can check that out. So far I have only made 2 parts but this will be a 4 part series where I will go through every VN based on anime I have read. I plan to release one part each week.
  17. Not a bug report but looks really cool, wish I knew how to make something similar to the search results part of that and the thing for each VN. Think something like that would have worked really well with the list I have of VNs with official english releases.
  18. I wonder how many of the people who sign this petition actually would end up paying for the VN. Considering how widespread piracy seem to be in the VN community I wonder how many of the votes are just people who want it translated to then pirate it versus those that plan to actually buy it. I just hope it doesn't end up where they localize it due to the petition and it sells really bad and that ends up with the japanese visual novel companies in general having more disstrust towards the english readerbase.
  19. Ye really doubt it would make sense to release any VN for PS5 atm. Considering how easy it should be for a PS4 to handle a VN I don't think they can really promote things like using the power of the PS5 to play a VN more smoothly. Just relaying on the backwards compatability atm makes way more sense then making a VN specifically for the PS5. Nothing to really gain in terms of performance boost and there are also way more PS4 currently than PS5 and when the PS5 can play PS4 games anyways I really doubt they would really gain any sales from a PS5 specific build that they can promote specifically
  20. Well I only have the english version of the VN and not the japanese version so a patch would be nice
  21. Not really a hidden gem VN but rather a hidden gem waifu Anastasia Imperator Erland from Love Love ♥ Princess the VN itself is pretty nice but not good enough that I would call it a hidden gem, but Anastasia Imperator Erland is just really fantastic and outshines the other girls in the VN by a lot.
  22. That it naturally occurs in animals does mean it is natural, natural does not mean optimal or purpose driven it just means that it is a natural occuring thing not created by some sort of ideology within human society. There is nothing about how things should or shouldn't be it is just how it is. As for why this is I am not sure as I have not bothered looking into any evolutionary explenation for it, but from my understanding the frequenzy at which it is found in nature makes it a natural occuring thing. Haven't said they lacked empathy just that there is more of a focus on it to
