  1. I thought Sweet Pool's choices (reason vs. instinct) were really cool, especially visually. For those who haven't played it, all prompts have you chose if Youji should follow his logic or his instinct, and the game goes from there depending on which one you've chosen. The choices are shown on opposite corners of the screen as red and blue sort of...veiny things? It fits well with the whole body horror aspect of the game. I also like VNs with raising sim elements.
  2. Actually a few titles I hadn't heard of before, so that's something! I love The Real Her...also Prism (RIP).
  3. What is a newbie-friendly VN?

    I agree with your three points, especially the latter two. I'd love to recommend Kara no Shoujo to my mom, except it has sex scenes and sexual violence (tbh if Kara no Shoujo had no/minimal H content it'd be much better bc most of the scenes don't serve a purpose). I think a good starting point would be a VN that balances all three of those aspects. Something with a light theme (and, if you find you don't like that, there's always more to explore after), a reasonable, non-intimidating length (i.e. not 50+ hours long), and a straightforward UI.
  4. I don't remember what my true 'first' was- I do distinctly remember downloading a ROM of Pia Carrot 3.3 and desperately mashing through the Japanese dialogue in hope of seeing some anime boobs because I was a stupid horny teen. I think that was somewhere around 2004 or so? I've been aware of them since the early 2000's, at least. I'd consider my 'first' (in that it hooked me on the medium) to be Katawa Shoujo, back when the first act was released in 2009. Not very surprising or original, I guess.
  5. Mangagamer and Sekai ACEN 2018

    I'm so excited to see Tsui Yuri/Sisterly Bliss get an official release. Can't wait to play it!
  6. I offered to QC this a couple years ago, but never really heard anything after the first few months. I'd still be interested in helping out, though.
  7. Bad anime with good openings

    Elfen Lied is a prime example of this imo.

    Can't wait to spend another 300 hours on this game instead of taking care of my real life responsibilities.
  9. What does an editor do in fan translation?

    Considering I've just started my first fan TL project , I can't give you much advice regarding editing for VNs. I have done some other editing, though (a poetry book and some articles/synopses). Generally you'll want to improve the readability of the writing you're working on. You'll take what's written and polish it up. You'll fix errors, shift words/sentences around if it reads better, check that words mean what they're intended to mean (and change them if they don't), and make sure the writing is consistent (ex. the book I worked on had about three different spellings of 'Claire' to refer to the same person). It's important to keep the author's style and intentions, though- you don't want to just completely rewrite the piece based on how you'd do it. Also, I think you might be a bit young. Hopefully this doesn't sound rude, but I think it's a good idea to finish high school and take some writing/English courses at a post-secondary level in order to make sure your skills are solid. I'm also not really sure how many people would be comfortable working with a minor if the VN has 18+ content (I definitely wouldn't be). It's good to be ambitious, though, so I hope you succeed!
  10. Oh wow! I really need to catch up on it, but I do remember liking it. Between this and the Kase-san OVA, it's going to be an exciting year for me. And I mean, I guess there's also Citrus...
  11. Tbh it doesn't seem like the type of yuri I'd be interested in, but I'm still willing to give pretty much any yuri a shot since there's so little of it translated. Unfortunately, I could really only help in the English department.
  12. If there's no recommended route order, I usually try to go for her first and then finish the rest. If I really liked her route, I'll replay it again at the end so I start and finish with her.
  13. Inquiry for Dog Owners

    Based on personal anecdotes, they don't appear to be especially effective (and, as Tymmur pointed out, do little to stop wildlife coming into contact with your dog). We have a fence, though, so I couldn't really tell you other than what I've heard.
  14. What is considered "finishing" a Visual Novel?

    For me, it's thoroughly completing the VN- all routes, CGs, etc. The rare occasion where this isn't the case is usually because I find a VN too unbearable to continue any further. Either that, or I like one ending so much that I don't want to go through any others to "spoil" it. It's happened with Katawa Shoujo, DMMD, and Subahibi. It takes a few months, but I usually do go back to finish it, and then I just replay my favourite route again at the end. Of course, this is just my version of finishing. There's no one who's going to hold a gun to your head if you don't feel like reading through all the content. Maybe you like one route and you're satisfied with that ending- you could say it's finished for you then.
