  1. I thoroughly enjoyed it, although I might have overrated it a bit, since it was maybe 7th or 8th VN I've ever read Certainly teacher's side route was complete waste of time, but when it comes to the main routes, from what I remember, I enjoyed them all back then.
  2. What are you playing?

    Yesterday I finished true route of Tenohira o, Tayou ni first arc. It was very good although I have some issues with route system structure itself. I will post more when I finish whole game - for now I have second arc left, which features another protagonist and has two routes. For now I think it's heading towards ~7.5 score (which in my scale means "very enjoyable, but has some annoying issues")
  3. What are you playing?

    FWIW, recently Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai english patch got an update.

    And in the meantime, people are complaining about lack of h-scenes in KEY VN I was really shocked after seeing that. The notion that VN=eroge, and that whenever story involves characters having sex, you absolutely HAVE to show it in every detail, seems to be strong. (I personally find it ridiculous, and legendary bad quality of KEY's H-scenes only reinforces that ) On a side note - when browsing Steam reviews of Flight Diary, I saw some people who claimed that they could feel when h-scenes were cut from Akari's route

    To think that few months ago I swore that I''ll never be buying physical editions of VNs... Today I received another package from amazon. This time it's Tenohira o, Tayou ni that I'm currently reading. With the price of 1500円 I simply couldn't justify going on with pirated version in any possible way
  6. What are you playing?

    I see. Now we have some common point of reference at least. And it means, that after all there is some tiny chance that I might still like My Fair Princess (unless it's much worse)
  7. What are you playing?

    I haven't read that many, compared to some of the veterans I've read one of the older PeasSoft's titles - Koi Iro Chu! Lips. While it was filled with popular tropes, I still enjoyed it, because they executed those tropes reasonably well, and I liked the characters. So I guess that's how it is with me - I'm okay even with seemingly overused tropes if they are executed well. It's a problem however, if the execution itself is also lazy. On a side note - recently I browsed my reading history on vndb, since I've been filling out start and finish dates. It struck me, that in 2018 I've read over twice as many VNs when compared with 2019. Incidentally, 2019 was the year when I started reading untranslated titles. And I guess it shows how much slower I am when reading in JP compared to EN. "Medium" sized VN would typically take me around a week when reading translated, but untranslated it can easily take one month or more - it takes around a week to finish one route
  8. What are you playing?

    Well, they're nukige after all Ouch, that makes me sad I had high hopes for this title. Will try it when it comes up with some decent discount on Steam sale then
  9. What are you playing?

    Yeah, it sits pretty high on my wishlist. But I guess we'll have to wait at least about a year for it to be finished - unless the author suddenly speeds up his work
  10. Summer Pockets is here!

    They hinted, that translation of the new content depends on the succes of the base game. True, but I think that's a bit stupid attitude. That's like saying that Princess Evangile is incomplete without the "W Happiness" Besides, it isn't even released yet. It may as well turn out that new content is inferior to the base game Whatever the case, it definitely would be wrong to say that one cannot enjoy a VN without a fandisc, wouldn't you agree?
  11. Summer Pockets is here!

    Definitely. I mean - why not? After all, the game has been released year and a half ago, and lots of people enjoyed it as it is currently. Reflection Blue seems to be kind of "extended edition", sort of big fandisc burned into main game. (It introduces new routes for and one new heroine) But after all it is just that - an add-on.
  12. So, today I found some time to work on this thing, and thanks to that I've gotten past the first half of the script Next opportunity will be, I think, after Feb 17.
  13. Summer Pockets is here!

    So finally they managed to release before FanTL (which apparently is scheduled for 2020-02-17 got cancelled in order to promote official version - thumbs up for the fanTL team for that )
  14. What are you listening to right now?

    That's indeed nice Reminds me of some of the Kayoko Yoshizawa's songs. I feel like Japanese popular music is essentially a mix of various pop traditions from all the world. From different time periods as well. And often it brings interesting and pleasing results

    Last week I found great deal for Natsu No Ame on amazon.jp . It was marked down to 2900円 (from the regular 9680円) so it was hard to pass. It arrived today. Thankfully, there aren't any NSFW images on the box/cover
