  1. First of all, build as strong a team for each color / attribute as possible. In general, before sacrificing anyone through practice, make sure to use auto-formation to preserve the highest attribute members on your team.


    Only use a member for practice once you aready have its idolized version - which you get from special practice. Up that character's bond for a love gem, rinse and repeat for a while to save up for the 50 lovegem draw - putting it as the team leader for a while seems to increase the bond points gained for a while. Personally I want to catch them all when it comes to the idolized non-rare members, and there are good reasons for this: there a achievement thingies iving you goodies for getting x number of idolized characters to max level.


    If you have maxed both the bond and level of an idolized character (note: technically a member name. You won't get more of you max-level two of the same character. If you get four of those shitty Christinas, only fuse two with special practice, then sacrifice the rest to the gods with the force of a thousand suns), there is nothing to lose from sacrificing it as long as your team doesn't need it. Otherwise, you might as well keep it. The favorite button in the member list helps here.


    Right now though, what you want to do is grind out a good Pure team and fuck anything else and try to get as many event points as possible for the kotori love stuff. You won't be able to get that much due to your late start, but you will get something.

    This a thousand times.

    If you want to get S ranks and experience you need this.


    Zaka you can max out a card and still idolize them later (if you don't have the same card to idolize them right now). The first card that you use on the slot will retain its experience, the second one is the one that disappears. I tested~

    The only thing idolizing does to a card is raise the level cap, it doesn't increase any stats, but of course with a level cap raised you can level up your skills more.


    The center gains more bond than the rest indeed. I think they say it in the tutorial at some point.


    It's all about matching the team's attribute to the song's attribute for maximum otpimization~

    Thanks for all the tips!

    Fun fact: 

    I was making a smile attribute team and the game automatically put Maki and Nico next side each other despite Maki not even being of the smile attribute. I fanboyed a lot <3

    Even the game knows these matches!


    The point of idolizing every member once quickly is grinding out the side stories for love gems (so you can do that sweet, sweet 50 gem draw) while your stats are still shit anyway and you haven't got enough of the good side members (differences between best and worst are around ~900 attribute points.) Once you get the 1.8/1.9k attribute members you can level those to 10, then idolize once you get a superfluous copy of the member (so when you have the optimal team sidememberwise and one more of that card) and level to 20. I think the best normal green is Ru Tatara and red is Kasane Hasekura.


    Levels are preserved if you pick them first for special practice, I know, might have oversimplified to avoid tldr.


    Before the 50 gem draw prioritize your initial rare more, after that you won't have many new rares for a while and any remaining slots filled by side members might as well get maxed.

    The auto-formation thing can be improved upon, btw. Tl;dr if you hit a circle occupying that spot and the member matches the song attribute you get a bit more points. For hards there are even statistics on circle distribution on the wikis. You might also notice that highest attribute gets to be center, then the rest are ordered left to right from the strongest to the weakest :P

    And thanks for this, definitely saving all for the 50 gem draw as opposed to spending on the 5 gem draw. And seems I am going to have to do research later on to maximize score. So the auto-formation just places them greatest to least form center out, even though that's not the "best" formation for ever song?

    Played for a while and am currently Rank 15 but ran out of LP before I could level so I'm waiting for that to recharge. I maxed my Rin rare (unidolized), and after completing songs, got enough Friend Points to do several large scouts, and ended up getting a Pure attribute Umi and a Cool attribute Nico, then got a free Honor Student Scouting Pass, and ended up with a Pure attribute Nico. I got these pretty recently so I haven't had enough "sacrifices" to raise their levels so Umi's 27, Cool Nico is 15, and haven't touched Pure Nico yet. Oh, and I have 14 idolized normals so far.

  2. I really love Anohana, however I didn't find it that sad. I was crying at the end sure but only because of how happy I was. Everyone got to be friends again and I can assume that they began dating as well. Menma brought them all back together and it was just a beautiful story.

    Well, if viewed from another perspective, it's a final goodbye. That's how I personally saw it. It's a mixture of different feels so masterfully put together.

    Another anime scene I found sad was from Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S:

    Specifically the episode where they showed the first clone die. Hit me emotionally.

  3. I guess no one could take the "U MAD!?" lines here :P

    But yes, that download includes this horrid English translation that is practically a direct translation that doesn't use pronouns correctly. It's pretty much what you would get if you google translated everything.

  4. I decided to make a switch from mouse clicks to keyboard + mouse. I feel like I have a lot more freedom of control with my mouse than I had before. I didn't like it when I tried it initially, but now it feels nicer on the harder songs. My spins are a lot faster too. The only downside is having to develop the muscle memory for it. I can barely do any of the songs I use to do! >.< But yeah, I'm starting to see the futility of clicking at this point. Distance beats aren't a problem for me, but the fast ones are. I'm hitting the fast ones a lot more consistently now, but my accuracy still sucks due to lack of muscle memory. I'm hitting a lot more 100's than I usually do. I actually got a D for the first time ever. @_@

    I actually started using the keyboard for clicking in osu! around when I started playing normals because I figured it would be tons easier, so I never had an issue transitioning between those. But switching from mouse to tablet was a monsterous task for me after playing constantly for 6 months and was used to a mouse.
  5. Now that LB is finished, I'd like a Rewrite adaptation <3

    The way the story progresses and has heavy emphasis on romance would make a Rewrite anime adaption pretty diffuclt to release compared to Little Busters. With all those crazy character route endings, I'd actually like to see an aniimation studio try.
  6. 1. Momo - After reading her character profile, I started the To Love Ru anime for the sole purpose of reaching To Love-ru Darkness where she was the lead girl. Definitely didn't disappoint.

    2. Yui - I didn't care for her as much the first season, but somewhere along she started to grow on me. I'm a fan of tsunderes, especially if they can admit to themselves they like the person they're tsundere for.

    3. Nana - Again, a fan of tsundere. Not much to say, just like these type of characters.

    Is that so? I never liked Momo's VA even though I think it fits her, voiced to love-ru sounds dangerous. I really liked the animation, though. I would watch if I had the time to re-watch fan service, fine fan service, but fan service

    Aww, I love Momo's VA, along with other roles she's done. I also like how the roles are reversed between Momo's and Nana's VAs, since in Toaru Kagaku no Railgun, Nana's VA voices Saten and Momo's VA voices Uiharu, where Nana's VA's character messes with Momo's VA's character instead of the other way around like in To Love Ru.
  7. ._. wut ? Little Busters better than Clannad ?



    Wut ?

    Want this puppy to die or something ?


    That is like the ultimate insult. (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

    My mistake, I failed to mention I was comparing the LB visual novel to the anime adaption. Sometimes everything I'm thinking doesn't make it onto the screen :P
  8. Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! I'm definitely going to start Grisaia soon after everything said in this thread. I had only heard of G-Senjou but didn't know anything, but I will check into it. And I already planned on playing Cross Channel and Hoshizora no Memoria


    Welcome to Fuwa! Have some chalk:


    I see you haven't played G-senjou no Maou, that's what I recommend.

    Hope to see you around more.

    Chalk? And Chino is awesome, along with the anime she's from. Although, my favorite character is Cocoa.


    Hello, there. Welcome to fuwanovel  ;)

    I wasn't particularly fond of Rewrite, but I get why you would be. If you're looking for VNs to play, be sure to check this thread, though I personally recommend Grisaia no Kajitsu.


    Don't forget to make yourself at home! See you around~

    I am an firm believer in "nothing is for everyone". I felt Rewrite happened to be the perfect formula for me, which had comedy that really clicked with me, characters I completely loved, and stories I highly enjoyed. Everything just came close to my ideal.

    As for that link, I already had it bookmarked before making this thread, but thanks anyway.


    Welcome to Fuwa! enjoy your stay, and have a moe:


    Azusa happens to be my favorite character from K-On :D


    Welcome on the forum

    Enjoy your stay

    And read Clannad !

    I had kinda stopped reading Clannad as I had already seen the anime and I was aiming for VNs without anime adaptions. I did read all the way up to Refrain in Little Busters because I liked the characters more and a friend of mine talked it up so much. Glad I did since some routes were much better (Haruka!)
  9. Greetings to anyone who reads this~


    I'm horrible at introductions, so this is just going to seem like a random mess, bear with me please :rolleyes:


    My username is Ceris (obviously) and am a newer anime fan and even newer to the VN world. I don't have a certain genre I stick to, but tend to like slice of life-ish anime that mix comedy and drama well (like nakige) and since I come to tears easy, the sadder the better. I'm also a fan of moe and romances (my taste in romance isn't concrete and can vary greatly). I'm a pretty laid back person who doesn't try to criticize things and just tries to enjoy whatever he's doing. I don't know any Japanese beyond a few random words, so I'm at the mercy of the translators.


    I started watching anime back in August of 2012 and got immediately hooked on it and have seen over 100 different series. Because of my huge interest in anime, I asked a friend to recommend me a visual novel that doesn't have an anime adaption, so he mentioned Rewrite because of my love for Key anime. Rewrite is now my all time favorite form of (dunno what word to use here to include books, anime, cartoons, etc, anything entertainment along these lines? ). <-Long winded, but I loved Rewrite completely. Since then, I haven't branched out too well and want to change that. I tend to get interested in the *shallow* way of judging character designs, then with a little research, check to see if they're nukige (avoid these), or if an anime, just general plot synopsis, and for both, character bios.


    To mention the visual novels I've played (read?):

    Rewrite - Mentioned above. The only VN I've completed to this date.

    Symphonic Rain - Through the heroine routes, need to finish the Al Fine route, absolutely love this.

    Little Busters - Saves stopped working (dunno what happened) as I reached Refrain, but I've seen the anime. Will complete when Ex is finished being translated.

    Clannad - Seen anime, only cleared two routes so far.

    Toradora Portable - Another anime I've seen, just cleared Taiga stuff.

    Ikinari Anata ni Koishiteiru - Saves stopped working on this as well, cleared Tsumugu and Eika routes, will finish one day, not a fan of the game, only downloaded as a new release from Fuwanovel.

    Flyable Heart - Cleared Mayuri and half way through Sakurako but lost saves. Started it due to hearing a lot about it.


    VNs I've downloaded but have yet to play

    Planetarian - Will do very soon since it's Key and really short.

    Grisaia no Kajutsu - Fuwanovel banner made me download it.

    If My Heart Had Wings - Cool name, heard positive things

    Hoshizora no Memoria - Heard it was moe (?) and loved character designs

    Cross Channel - Heard positive things


    Ones that interest me that don't have an English translation.

    Clover Day's - Character design + character bios

    Your Diary - Character design

    Hatsuyuki Sakura - Character Design


    Thanks for reading this. Any recommendations are welcome. I may or may not stay active around here, since I really just chime in here and there instead of being full blown active on forums anyway. Wanted to make a (rather messy) introduction thread either way. Hope this wasn't too bad.
