Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. "Under the same roof" comedies

    I'd also add Heart de Roommate.
  2. What are you playing?

    Yesterday I discovered interesting thing. Still cannot be fully sure, 'cause I checked only one part, but it looks like MoeNovel stealthily updated Steam edition of If My Heart Had Wings to match Cruise Sign's main part. Maybe they did it while doing Switch version? While reading Cruise Sign, yesterday I reached the point where the first H-scene in Kotori's route would be in the adult version. I found the replacement scene to be really sweet and cute, so I wanted to compare it with the total disaster that reportedly the old IMHHW version was. I did clean install of Steam version, and quickly skimmed thru it up to the same point. And, to my utmost surprise, it was exactly identical to Cruise Sign. No weird cuts, but exactly same replacement scene, with proper voice lines etc. Also, it seems that they revised the translation a bit. It still isn't great, but for example, there are no longer "eyes" instead of "boobs" in the bath scene I'm going to compare other parts while I go thru them as well, but if (and that's a big if...) the rest of the game follows the same pattern, then it would mean, that when you get all parts of Steam release (main game + Flight Diary + Akari addon) you'd get the equivalent of translated Cruise Sign.
  3. Recent (Japanese) Things You Have Purchased

    I just bought Sukimazakura to Uso no Machi ( すきま桜とうその都会 ) and, well, I'm not sure how to describe it. It's the weirdest VN release I've encountered so far. Technically it's physical, but... erhm... just look: It's special low-priced Amazon-exclusive edition, and it's just game disc in a cardboard sleeve. So it's like getting download edition, but on the disc However, the price was unbeatable - ¥3,850 vs ¥9,980 for regular physical edition. And it's totally DRM-free
  4. What are you playing?

    Aokana is pretty lighthearted, so you should be fine for a start
  5. What are you playing?

    Almost, but something is off with her face. Uncanny. When I browsed through screenshots gallery on vndb, all those characters looked somewhat scary to me. Something about face proportions and expressions doesn't feel right. Guess this art style just doesn't work for me.
  6. What are you playing?

    I'm not into sports at all, yet I enjoyed FC part of Aokana. The battles matches scenes were written in quite engaging way. I agree that a bit more of a build-up for romance would have been nice, but still it was very enjoyable experience.
  7. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    You select the text you want to hide, and click "eye" icon in the toolbar of the text box.
  8. What are you playing?

    Yes, I'm still at common route, I haven't reached that later scene with Aoi x Kotori yet. I can wholeheartedly recommend Aokana. Cannot say much about Nanairo Reincarnation, since character design put me off.
  9. What are you playing?

    I wouldn't be surprised, if they just went lazy route, and reused some CGs from 2013 IMHHW release. (and that release was aimed at +12 (CERO B) rating, so that would explain it a bit - for example "all-ages" version of Aokana has "C" (+15) rating, and its bath CG is much bolder)
  10. What are you playing?

    I'm still going through console version of Konosora. My reading speed turns out to be rather slow - translated version took me ~50hrs to complete, while here, after 20hrs, I'm still in the middle of common route (after first test flight and beach episode ). While I still love Kotori, I seem to notice Amane more this time. Or rather - I partially forgot how great she was, while I remembered Kotori more, so now I'm kind of rediscovering her. BTW - I understand that it's all-ages* release, but bath towels make no sense while in the water If you need to cover up titties in bath scenes, I'd prefer the good old steam *or actually it isn't, it's CERO D = +17
  11. [NekoNyan News] Senren Banka delayed

    Sekai wants to compete with JAST in terms of speed it seems
  12. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    I think this was aimed to be a joke about how Rika doesn't get enough screen time in common route Anyway, all-ages version cuts only h-scenes, and adds a bit of magic steam to onsen CG in common route, to cover "sensitive" parts (nipples and genital areas). OTOH, the CG with girls changing in clubroom is left unaltered, since there are no nipples visible there.
  13. (quoting in open, since I think this part is spoiler-safe) There's some truth to this, but maybe it was their attempt to raise above the level of average moege I think that true route was actually one of the best parts of the game, while more typical "eroge" bits annoyed me a bit now and then.
  14. What are you playing?

    So, as planned, I started reading Cruise Sign. Ah, the music and Kotori I'm encountering fair number of unknown words (by this I mean more than in other untranslated VNs I played before), and probably there'll be a lot more once glider fun starts - but that's where text hooking comes to help Having already read translated version of IMHHW probably helps a little too. BTW, according to the walkthrough at Seiya-Saiga, Akari's route isn't part of the main game, but is accessible from the menu as a part of Flight Diary. So, technically Steam version of Flight Diary with Akari DLC should be equal to console version, unless they used some additional censorship. I plan to grab it sometime later (maybe on winter Steam sale?) and compare them.
