  1. This is generally what it's like for me as well. The school life depicted in visual novels gives me a nostalgic feeling, although it isn't even remotely similar to what it was like when I was still a student, due to cultural differences, glamorization for the sake of entertainment and whatnot. School was was extremely boring to me, so I guess this might be a case of me wishing to mentally replace that monochrome image with one that seems more colorful.
  2. Unless my memory fails me, you need to finish all other routes before you can do Mitoko's.
  3. What are you playing?

    It can be kinda annoying when games and VNs do that, but you can always skip it with a click of the mouse button if you don't feel like watching it! I think I only watched the entire thing once during my playthrough.
  4. What are you playing?

    Oh, I had no idea the stats were shared, but I guess that makes sense since I can't remember ever getting a stat increase from the fighting game. Anyway, I'll probably skip the minigames for now then. It kinda feels like wasted effort to struggle with it now if it'll become easier later on, especially considering the randomness of the fighting.
  5. how to play love la bride ??

    Trying to read a Japanese VN without knowing anything about the language is going to be a really time-consuming and confusing task that probably won't be very enjoyable for you. I suggest you read a localized VN instead.
  6. What are you playing?

    Currently reading Little Busters, and I heard that your stats increase for every route you finish. Does it only influence the fighting minigame, or baseball as well? Is there any point in doing that/those minigame(s) during my first playthrough or should I just wait until the last one?
  7. I wish more VNs would deal with adult content that way, rather than force it on you whether you like it or not. Eden was the first (and still the only) 18+ VN I've read that had no nudity/sex during the main story.
  8. What are you playing?

    I want to start reading that so bad, but I know that if I do so now, I'm going to regret it when I'm done with all the current chapters and have to wait for the conclusion. I really wish they'd release chapter 8 along with chapter 7 this month, but I guess we'll have to wait another year for it.
  9. What are you playing?

    I actually managed to find the answer elsewhere, but thanks anyway! Being able to switch seamlessly is pretty awesome!
  10. What are you playing?

    While we're on the subject of Little Busters, does anyone know if there's some way to instantly switch between languages in-game? (I'm playing the English Edition on Steam.) It feels like being able to switch back and forth could be good for my Japanese reading practice, but it's a bit annoying and roundabout having to enter the game menu and then "Config" every time I want to do it. EDIT: I managed to find a solution on my own. There are a bunch of unlisted keyboard controls that don't appear in the in-game settings, apparently. Pushing L switches between English and Japanese.
  11. What are you playing?

    Yeah, it's kinda annoying to know beforehand, but I doubt it'll reduce my opinion of the VN as a whole. I mean, I don't know any details whatsoever, so the circumstances can still have plenty of impact on me. That could've been kind of a spoiler for me if I hadn't read Clannad already. Are you referring to
  12. What are you playing?

    If anyone wants to comment on this matter, please make sure to do it in a way that won't spoil it further.
  13. What are you playing?

    Finished How To Date A Magical Girl yesterday. I enjoyed most of it, but you could see the main plot twist coming from a mile away. The ending was immensely unsatisfying and basically ruined the entire VN. If anyone here wants to know, this is what happens: Aaanyway... After today, I have three weeks off from work and have decided that this will be the perfect time to finally start reading Little Busters. I've been putting it off for a long time after I randomly stumbled across what I assume is a major spoiler, which I've been hoping I'd forget about eventually. Sadly, I've been unable to do so, so I figure there's no reason to wait any longer.
  14. What are you playing?

    Most likely, but it's still really strange how they mix different pronouns. It would make more sense to consistently use "them/they" and nothing else. In my second example, they clearly identify the character as "Moe" and it shouldn't be very hard to link the pronoun later on in the sentence to the name and make the game recognize the character as a "she". Well, I guess there's not really much point in delving deeper into this, since it is the way it is regardless. I just hope NG, the VN released after Death Mark, will be better in this regard whenever it's localized.
  15. What are you playing?

    @adamstan I have yet to find some way to change language to Japanese, but here's an example of "they" usage: This is during an investigation with a male partner, when the protagonist gets grabbed by someone and tries to determine if it's the partner or someone else. What's most weird about this whole issue is the fact that it's not consistent. As I've continued playing, I've seen characters referred to by name or "he/she" plenty of times, but then it just randomly changes to "them/they" out of nowhere. One prime example is this screenshot, where one character is referred to as "they", although her name was actually used earlier in the very same sentence:
