  1. Kudos to JAST for knowing how to show appreciation for their established fanbase! A lot of publishers won't even give a discount for owners of the original game when they release a remaster or port.
  2. She does Misaki in Chrono Clock as well, which I'm currently reading. I'm a big fan of her work, but I'm not very fond of Karen in particular, because I think her voice sounds a bit too artificial/strained there. Other than that, I most recently heard her as Momoko in Koikari, which I enjoyed a lot.
  3. My feelings exactly! I like Misa as a character, but her route feels like it's lacking something, so it ended up being my least favorite one.
  4. Yeah, Sora's great! She's my favorite aside from Rikka. I still find this kissing CG (that I think I've already posted here at some point) of her hilariously awkward, but I can't quite remember if it was from the first kiss scene you mentioned.
  5. There's not really any recommended order from what I can remember, so just go with whatever strikes your fancy. At some point in the future when I feel like rereading this VN in the form of Perfect Edition (only read the original so far), I'm probably saving Rikka for last, since she's the heroine I liked the most (and a lot of others seem to do as well).
  6. What about this one then? It's the only other VN I can find fitting your criteria.
  7. Seems like the limit is a bit unclear. A 5000 character limit was listed on their website, but I just noticed another note on a different part of it, saying "With the DeepL API Free plan, you can translate up to 500,000 characters per month for free." So maybe it's 500k a month and you can also only use 5k characters within a certain amount of time (which doesn't seem to be specified), so if you break either of those limits, it won't work anymore until the timer resets.
  8. There's a limit of 5000 characters a day. If you want more than that, you're going to have to pay their monthly rate of €8.99 (or €5.99 if you sign up for a year). If you use it a lot, it seems like a pretty decent price.
  9. Did they actually announce a release of the 18+ version of Parfait as well? I noticed that both 15+ and 18+ are listed on VNDb, but I wouldn't be surprised if the all ages version is the only one we get, considering how adamant they were about censoring the English localization of Baldr Sky - a game that didn't even have an all ages release in Japan in the first place.
  10. I was a bit excited for this, but then I was put off after reading this: "The script has been drastically rewritten compared to the original PC-98 release. This includes extensive revisions to the scenario, removing and cutting short some H-scenes, altering characters' personalities and physical parameters and changing endings. A lot of potentially sensitive lines were removed or softened, with the stated reason being to fit the ethics of the time and for removal of "ethically problematic parts". Examples include heavily cutting down on sexual jokes and alcohol references, and changing the en
  11. Playing Evenicle II right now, and to noone's surprise, it didn't take very long for the first rape scene to show up. I like Alicesoft's games in general, but I still find this and some of the other questionable content (like the mandatory prostitution minigame in Dohna Dohna) they're so adamant on including in every title quite offputting. They're also kinda playing down the seriousness of it all by wording it like this: I guess that means that theft could be considered non-consensual borrowing, and murder could be non-consensual life expectancy decrease. They've also somehow manage
  12. I'd actually recommend against that, unless you're fine with then waiting several decades for the conclusion to the story (judging by the developer's current pace). Both the next part in the series and the prequel should've been out by now, but they've been delayed so many times that the developer seems to have stopped giving any estimates at this point. Furthermore, we can probably expect more sequels after those two titles, because I sincerely doubt they will be enough to conclude the story without it feeling rushed and unsatisfying.
  13. I'm generally not big on h-scenes, in part due to how they tend to play out in more or less the same way every time, so I find it a bit refreshing whenever someone breaks the norm. That said, the fact that they were high kinda ruined this scene for me. For some reason, I tend to be slightly offput whenever a heroine is influenced by something, even if it's only a matter of getting drunk or smoking a cigarette. Drinking and smoking don't bother me whatsoever IRL, so I honestly have no idea why it would when it comes to VNs.
  14. Have you tried using both the x64 and x86 versions of Textractor? Some games seem to be unhookable in the x64 version, so you need to use the x86 version instead. Konosora Flight Diary was one such case for myself.
  15. @adamstan watching the OP be like
  16. The titles I've read have seemed fine to me, but I can't really say anything about the actual accuracy of the translations since I haven't compared them to the Japanese originals. The only thing that annoys me somewhat is that they remove honorifics, opting instead for the use of "brother", "Mr." and such.
  17. Couldn't agree more! Harem Kingdom quickly became my favorite Smee title (well, actually, one of my favorite nukige altogether, to put things in a grander perspective) and this is one of the prime reasons. Another thing worth mentioning is the fact that all of the girls are or become pretty assertive, and that's always a big plus in my book. Lastly, I also have to praise HIkari's vulgarity, which I find equal parts funny and refreshing, since it's something we rarely see in VNs, at least to this degree.
  18. I think the main issue is that it's usually just straight up porn in most cases. If it's done right, sex scenes can add depth to characters and their relationships, but titles that manage to pull that off are pretty rare.
  19. Yeah, I get what you mean. Back when I started reading VNs, I read h-scenes in their entirety because I wouldn't want to risk missing out on anything story related, but there's usually nothing even remotely noteworthy in them so I just skip past most of them nowadays. I can imagine there being a few scenes that are worthwhile in White Album 2 though, so I might pay more attention there.
  20. Damn, it hit you hard, huh? Glad to hear you're back on track! I haven't started any new VNs since my last post here. I'm basically just waiting for the White Album 2 translation to finish, which should be any day now according to the project updates. I really hope there won't be any delays, since I have time off from work until the second week of January, making this the perfect time to take on a longer read.
  21. Dear God, that's one massive wall of text! You really need to format it, or else people's minds are going to implode before they get a chance to comment on the contents of your post
  22. Just get the Restoration Patch. Giga won't let them officially release any 18+ content for the English version of the game, and I doubt that'll change anytime soon.
  23. I've finished a few VNs now in November, so here are some of my thoughts. 1. This wasn't anything to write home about, to put it mildly. The protagonist is a total creep that sexually assaults people in their sleep, the game is almost devoid of any humor, and the writing is pretty awful, both in terms of plot and wording. One thing that's seriously awkward is the fact that the characters, for whatever reason, mostly refer to each other and themselves as "roommate", "landlady", "neighbor" and so on instead of their actual names. They even call each other "big roommate" and "little roo
