  1. Birthday thread

    Happy Birthday, @BookwormOtaku!
  2. What are you playing?

    Freakily Charming recently put out another game that I feel truly lives up to the brand name. Whilst Hitomebore was a very sweet tale of dealing with 'different', and the other title has its own appeal and fanbase, Butterfly Affection, the newest title, deals with the truly creepy. It's not long at all, and takes less than an hour, so I do recommend you give it a try if you're interested in cohabitating with a Gothic horror.
  3. What are you playing?

    I liked it a lot. There's a lot of "Idols r dark" drama going on, but that's most definitely not the part I pay attention to or care about. I prefer to focus on everyone's interactions and coming together to have friendship win it all or some such.
  4. Site Work 03/17/19

    Forum updates. What usually happened in the past is that forum updates typically break something in the forum and cause a need to rollback to an earlier backup, meaning a lot of things that are posted around the time the updates are going on just disappear entirely. Additionally, the administrator loves telling people to panic a lot.

    As always, time to obsessively like Tay's posts to scare him away.

    This is the last thing I expected to wake up to today. I thought this "Tay" personage wasn't even real!
  7. Nekomiko in a nutshell

    Waiting for that review. Does it actually have readable english?
  8. I am looking for VNs, Anime, and/or Manga with a protagonist that isn't lustful. That is, doesn't become embarrassed just by seeing bare legs or things of the sort, and isn't a pervert inside. Kazami Yuuji somehow fits the idea, strangely. Ideally, subverts the typical "walk-in-on-someone-changing" by not making a scene of it, for instance. Generally speaking, this sort of character overlaps with the "super dense" characters. The problem is that those do become 'lustful'/easily flustered when they come to realise things. Not exactly what I'm looking for. Another way to describe it is characters with no sex drive. Two things: It should be in english, and it should have romance.
  9. Recommend Me Something - No Sex Drive

    Unfortunately, as far as I understand, Fata Morgana is a tragedy. I don't believe I will play it, much for the same reason I haven't touched eden* or Planetarian. This is true. However, I maintain my request. Whilst the first sentence is certainly within the acceptable range, the second sentence comes from my wish to see protagonists I better empathise with.
  10. What are you playing?

    Nice. (Doesn't spoil anything for you)
  11. What are you playing?

    Where are you at right now? I've finished this pretty recently so I'd love to talk about it. I only know of a few other people playing otome (not that I play many myself).
  12. What are you playing?

    I'm actually not sure where I stand. I don't typically actually try things in the "trash" category, so I don't know if I'm one of those that eats this sort of thing up or not. I just know that I like the art-style and that you have stricter standards (in some respects) than I do.
  13. What are you playing?

    Good job. You've convinced me to try Highschool Romance.
  14. Recommend Me Something - No Sex Drive

    Right. I did get that impression from a few loose screenshots. I figure biting the bullet on this one is worth it. Would you recommend I watch the anime and then proceed to the manga (eventually) (if necessary), or should I just read the manga? I started that. Stopped at what I figure was the halfway mark, having finished a route. I'm sure Sable's Grimoire will be worth reading. Or is? Last I checked it wasn't complete, but is it now? I was somewhat disappointed by the subtitles of Bunnygirl Senpai when I first tried watching it. I'll want to try again using a different translation (if such a thing exists) and see if my issues are with the translation or the psudophilosophy balderdash. Acient Magus' Bride was unfortunate to me. Many praised it as it aired, but I couldn't care much for the scenery, environments, or music, so I felt like I wasn't quite experiencing it right. I hope that'll be different when I try again. Demonbane may fit my requirements, except the other stuff that would be the reason one would normally play it may well be the reason I'm not interested in it. It looks to me like an action title, and I generally skip action altogether. But I did like Sorcery Jokers! I really ought to play Karakara, for this reason or another. I've been putting it off because I thought it was short and not worthwhile for that reason, but since there's two and I've found I'm really slow at reading VNs these days, it might be worth it. I'll hold off on I Walk Among Zombies until there's more of it. Right now it just looks like a zombie title or a nukige, neither of which I like.
  15. What are you playing?

    I love it. My experience with it is that through dozens of endings it explores the setting thoroughly.
  16. What are you playing?

    I also finished Heart of the Woods. My immediate thoughts appear to have been " Much real, much magic, much cute, much worth. " To elaborate a bit, I thought the setting began very real, and quite modern. A fair bit into it there was something of a shift, and then it became a fantastic tale. The romance was absolutely stellar on all counts. Things I liked were characters really turning into something different from their initial impressions. Shout-out for Morgan, she is awesome, and she really grew. Still, Tara is best girl. Also, #ThirstyGhost.
  17. Seduction VNs

    Got it. If you just want explicit sex then definitely look elsewhere. If you mean 18+ in regards to the visual novel's themes, though, don't discount Symphonic Rain yet! Or just save it for another time.
  18. Seduction VNs

    Symphonic Rain. (As a side note, the fan translation is likely a better version overall than the one that was localised, as both the translation and the art in the new one appear worse.)
  19. Why do you play Visual Novels?

    Disproportionally expensive and morally questionable to Western standards.
  20. Under One Wing (Hitotsuba) Steam store opened

    This VN has a single (by the time you get there, obvious) choice at the end which decides which route you enter. All others are almost irrelevant.
  21. Yes. I haven't finished Wagamama High Spec or Fureraba precisely because they're so good I don't want them to end.
  22. Why do you play Visual Novels?

    Visual Novels are, as far as I know, the absolute best source of Slice-Of-Life Romance stories with tangible romantic progression. Romance stories via other mediums tend to focus on drama or offer absolutely nothing (or very little) of people who already got together and are dating or married. It's also gotten to the point where I've become very fond of anime art. (But please, if anybody knows stuff that proves my first statement wrong, do point me in the right direction.)
  23. Nice! Thank you for backing it!
  24. What's your favorite Key visual novel?

    Little Busters!, yeah. Clannad isolates its characters too much from one another most of the time. If it weren't for that, I'd say Clannad.
