  1. What are you playing?

    I actually just went through her route after all, and it didn't improve my opinion of her. Anyway, kudos to the developer. The fact that I feel this way is pretty much proof that they've made a good job of making characters that you connect with.
  2. What are you playing?

    I didn't dislike them initially, but they did some stuff that I find pretty despicable. I'm not sure if I'll actually be able to skip the routes, since I'm a completionist to the point of it being borderline OCD. In any case, even if I do read those routes, I sincerely doubt they can redeem my opinion of those characters.
  3. What are you playing?

    Is Chika's route in Majikoi worth reading? I think she's a pretty horrible person, so I'm considering skipping it since I don't really feel like seeing Yamato hooking up with her. The same goes for Kosugi, who I hear has a route in Majikoi S.
  4. First VN you ever played and what did you think?

    I had my first VN experience sometime in the late '90s. I just considered it some random porn game at the time, and it wasn't until in recent years that I looked back and realized that was actually my first VN. I didn't play it for long though, since it was all in Japanese and I couldn't understand a word of it. I think the VN in question was True Love, but I can't be entirely sure since it was so long ago. The first VNs I actually completed were Phoenix Wright and then Danganronpa, but I was still ignorant of visual novels at that time. Grisaia was what finally opened my eyes and made me fall in love with the medium.
  5. What are you playing?

    I could probably handle bad formatting and some translation errors (as long as they're not completely off the mark and change the meaning of the sentences), but not being able to read Coda afterwards is a dealbreaker for me now that I know that it's a major part of the story. I would have been fine with skipping it if it was just a bunch of afterstories full of h-scenes, like in a lot of other VNs.
  6. Protagonist

    The only cases I can think of off the top of my head are: (I will let the girls remain anonymous, in order to avoid spoilers as much as possible) - Shuuichi in Hoshi Ori. There's no sex, which I assume is what you're referring to when you say "a good time", but he does have a girlfriend. She doesn't show up much though and doesn't even have a sprite. - Taisuke in School Days. Depending on your choices, he will hook up with a certain girl. There's sex, but it's not exactly romantic. Also, School Days and Shiny Days are probably the worst VNs I've ever read, for various reasons. - Shin in Swan Song. I think he and the girl are a really cute couple, but considering how dark the rest of the VN is, it might not be your cup of tea. There's sex in this one as well.
  7. Nintendo Switch VN

    I have yet to read a single VN on Switch, but I'm happy that so many are being ported. (although MoeNovel's localization of IMHHW should be buried in some cold depths rather than spread further) I don't really have any specific titles I want to see on Switch; I just want the current Switch VN trend to keep up, since it means more publicity, resulting in sales that will ultimately increase the chances of more titles being released for both PC and other platforms.
  8. I have some sort of blissful attachment to If My Heart Had Wings. I'm not entirely sure why, but my mood always seem to improve whenever I think about it. It's also one of the few VNs of which I still listen to the soundtrack every now and then. This song in particular always puts me in a good mood:
  9. Well, you can only know so much about a person as they're willing to let on. The fact that she, despite being his sister, is surprised by the amount of followers he has proves that point to some extent. Many people keep quiet about their problems and concerns, choosing to put on a facade that everything's fine for various reasons. It can have some serious consequences, since if noone but you knows what's going on, there's the risk of others not realizing until it's too late how serious the situation really was.
  10. What are you playing?

    Isn't Coda an important part of the story? onorub's post earlier on this page made it seem so. I don't want to start reading something now and then have to wait for my Japanese to improve until I can experience the conclusion of the story.
  11. What are you playing?

    I was going to ask you to elaborate, but I found out that Coda has been stuck at ~9% translated since almost a year ago and won't be finished anytime soon, if ever. In other words, I'm putting off reading White Album 2 until my Japanese is at an appropriate level.
  12. It's a tough call between Nagisa and Yumemi, but I went with Yumemi because Planetarian hit me harder emotionally than Clannad did. Just out of curiousity, which is your least favorite character? Mine's probably Lucia in Rewrite.
  13. What are you playing?

    Regarding Fal.
  14. What are you playing?

    In other words, I imagine it would be better to put off reading until the Coda translation is finished. Any word on when that's going to be? "Soon" kinda feels like something that has been there since the Closing Chapter translation was released last year, so it's pretty vague.
  15. What are you playing?

    To anyone who knows: What is "Coda" in White Album 2? I've been unable to find an answer to that question myself. I want to read the VN, but the Coda translation is supposed to be finished "Soon" according to TodokanaiTL's website. Since I have no idea what Coda actually is, I dunno if I should put off reading until it's done or just go ahead and read the VN as is.
