    As far as Visual Novels are concerned, these are my current preferences:
    Romance - Comedy - Psychological Thriller - Mystery - Chickens

    Action, and Fantasy don't affect my enjoyment much.

    I despise Horror, Drama, and Sports, however.

  1. I am not sure the OP's "translator groups" is actually meant to exclude the localisation companies, if I'm reading it correctly. At any rate, I do not know Japanese or its VNs, so I could not say if the best titles are being brought over or not, only that I like the ones that are brought over.
  2. @Silvz I don't know if Seraphim has seen your reply yet, but as obvious as it may seen, I would put it in spoiler tags so as to not affect the person's experience. Maybe I'm very wrong and they don't mind, but if you don't know how they'll react, directly replying to their theories, whether it seems obvious or not, may affect them negatively somehow.
  3. Okay. I'll just focus on crime theories for now, as I don't have much to add on the tea parties and ???. It's witches witching about. Full spoilers for the entirety of Umineko. Episode 1 murder theory: That's my theory. I now present to you episode two stream of consciousness. This time I wrote far less about random details. That may mean I was more invested, or maybe less. I'm not sure. To be honest, I don't appreciate the author telling me how to enjoy my mystery novels, but fine. I can try and solve them, see? (To be honest, I now realise that Ryukishi07 really did give us everything we needed to get through all the hard parts if we'd read through Umineko once.)
  4. But what does my young foolish self do, who took that key and dropped it down the drain? Never read a mystery novel in my life, and frankly, haven't read any since, if not for other mystery visual novels. Regardless, I've decided to give it another try. Here's a stream of consciousness for the first episode of Umineko, which I started on Thursday and only now finished. Spoilers for the entire novel as I've read the whole thing and will be using the bits and bobs I remember as I go through. I'll follow with the tea party and ??? and then possibly clearer thoughts. Also I'll make a blogpost for my everything on Episode 1 at some point.
  5. Like, certainly, I appreciate that The Heart of the Woods masterful experience, but I know what I'm getting into if the premise is 'a goth girl meets a fairy girl and yuri ensues'. I was not expecting ebi's usual stuff, and actually hoping it wouldn't be in. This is all great news to me.
  6. I've moved the thread to the Original VN forum. This seems interesting. Glad to see you've hit your goal.
  7. I mean, I guess some people may think this way, and argue it, but I wonder if anybody coming off of Umineko would actually think this way. That since it wasn't real, it does not matter.
  8. Thankfully, I can still interact in some ways with this VN.
  9. I apologise that I cannot contribute much to this discussion, but I find it fun in how much of a state of simultaneously knowing things and not knowing things I am. I've read through the VN, but I took away so little from it, especially these many years on, that all the big spoilers and twists don't really mean much of anything to me. I don't feel spoiled, but it's not like I remembered them. I'd hope to one day read it but... That'd require a lot of motivation. I don't know if it'll ever come.
  10. Happy birthday @Kenshin_sama.
  11. This particular title is a fandisc of a game released by Mangagamer. For this reason, it is unlikely to get translated unless Mangagamer does it themselves. As for this forum, while some people willing to translate visual novels may be around at times, there really is little point in making threads asking for a title to be translated, for anybody that could and wanted to do so would likely start or find projects for what they're interested in, not a random request. So, ultimately, this is simply a forum for VN fans, and some people doing translations make threads here, but that does not mean that this is a forum dedicated to translations or translators.
  12. I would prefer to only have one installed at a time, but in reality I have all sorts installed at all times, and pick and switch as I see fit.
  13. I've actually played Umineko, though I'll freely admit like 60% of it went over my head when I played it. Could you explain what you mean? Adequately spoiler-tagged, of course.
  14. Happy Birthday to the little baby @Fiddle.
  15. It's really hard to come up with a title to describe this! Basically, I am looking for stories with villains that are just slightly below the limit. Villains that are just slightly good enough to be the lesser evil. Villains that are despicable right bastards, but probably better left off as they are. Villains with conniving plans that outwit the heroes and win, because they tempered their ambitions and are doing just enough to stay legal or to be overlooked. Consider, for instance, villains who absorb too much power and go crazy, or turn into monsters. Instead of that, I'd like villains who stop before it's too late, who do not give in to temptation. Who keep the power and victory, without the crazy and destruction, avoiding the negative consequences for them and the world. A villain who wins, and does not necessarily make the world a worse place. A person you love to hate, because they are reprehensible and trick us constantly, but ultimately necessary or better for the place. I'm going to spoil Monster Girl Quest in order to better describe what I like: I'm going to spoil Ace Attorney 6 for the same reason: I'm going to spoil Psycho-Pass for the same reason: This recommendation can be from anything: Visual Novels, Anime, Manga, Light Novels, or other things you might think of.
