  1. I've never watched Elaina, but what I hear generally interests me. That said, without actually watching it I can't tell how I'd take to it or its particular execution. The idea of a self-centred but powerful person who doesn't help others if she doesn't need to unless she feels like it appeals to me, but it depends on how its done. Even if the character is written that way unintentionally I could still like or dislike it. Still, I watch like one anime show per semester these days, so the point is moot. I won't be watching this any time soon.
  2. In nearly all cases, yes. The companies that license these games for English release put them on Steam.
  3. Did I? Last I recall about that show I found that the anime and LN seemed to diverge, and should be taken as such disparate experiences. Though in respect to the LN I agree with Dreamysyu here. It's well paced until it isn't anymore, at which point it's hard to just keep going. The stuff I recall recommending against was actually the Bakarina light novels, as I find the anime works better as the medium.
  4. I've admittedly failed to catch the announcements, so this thread serves as a reminder to go look.
  5. In the oddest way, I'll present a VN that probably isn't what you're looking for but does fulfil the idea. Fxxx Me Royally!! Additionally the other translated title from the same developer would also fulfil the conditions. However, if you don't care for Otome, I've got to admit that I'm all out of ideas. Barring some games that have scenes for the bad guys, like Alicesoft games, or something like School Days which has a bit of everything but it's really minor, I don't recall clearly any games which fit these characteristics.
  6. The ones I've played from them have had good translations by my standard.
  7. Hm. I don't follow new Japanese releases as much, so I wouldn't know. I have seen a lot of localisations, though, especially from Shiravune, but I've not played most of them so I can't tell how "high end" the games are, either.
  8. Happy New Year to everyone, late as it may be.
  9. Is this finally the time to use my power?? Well, I do come in peace, and if you desire that I change down my profile no sooner than January 6th my earliest convenience to do so will be on January 6th itself, so I will do so then.
  10. As a loser, rest assured that I will interpret your request in the most literal manner, and will certainly not revert my avatar before January 6th, as ordered. I am, however, allowing myself to assume you are referring to January 6th of 2022. In fact, for your own assurance, I vow to not revert my avatar for the following decade, thereby guaranteeing I do not accidentally revert before the desired time.
  11. Oof. I've been relatively out of the loop, so while I knew Sol Press wasn't really functioning I didn't even realise their licenses to sell the things they translated may be at stake. In fact, this just serves to remind me of the Nukitashi limbo and go
  12. I also read a good few volumes of this Light Novel. There are things I like, and things I dislike, as I mention here, but this is a nice perspective. It's actually a nice reminder to eventually move forward with it. With me no longer having the occasion to use public transports these past couple of years, I've simply read less Light Novels and didn't progress on most I have saved up.
  13. Yeah; like most Key titles what I really like are the common route and character interactions, as well as the music. In games like Little Busters! I actually kind of enjoy the ending routes as well, but for most Key games I have to admit I end up not liking them too much, or not even playing them, like with Air, Kanon and Clannad. For this reason, despite how different Rewrite actually is from other Key titles, in terms of my actual experience it ends up similar.
  14. There are times where I don't mind them and they work really well as a relationship culmination or showing new facets of a character, but my pinky honestly is always cuddling the Ctrl button. Anyways, Visual Novels! I have honestly not found too much time for regular Visual Novels (in the last... year), spending my time more with adjacent stuff like Ace Attorney (a lot... every game... including The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles) or Danganronpa. However, I have been playing around with a couple of gameplay Eroge. Specifically, I replayed Re;Lord in order to move onto the final
  15. I'll give you one thing, my reasons for liking Rewrite have absolutely nothing to do with the plot (music and comedy). In fact, I'm more in my zone until the routes start, and in fact I did skip the final "true"(?) route of Terra.
  16. Interesting that you'd say that. The common opinion of Grisaia back when most people played it was that it was great because of the comedy, and that the common route was chock-full of it. But like anything else, it ultimately depends on what one likes. Any individual scene from the common route continues to be a barrel of laughs to me.
  17. Argh, dammit. I think I kinda dropped that game in the middle of the second episode, but I know I had a load of notes on it and everything. I don't want to just spoil myself on it all now. Hm............
  18. @Eclipsed And there you have CLANNAD. I've never actually read the After Story to completion. I don't think I have it in me. I'd love to hear your impressions on the anime as well, because I think it takes all that is best in CLANNAD: i.e., they do the Kotomi route thing and join all the school characters together rather than keep them constantly isolated from one another. It neglects CLANNAD's side characters and stories, but as you put it, they're there more for thematic reasons the anime would be unable to replicate regardless.
  19. @Eclipsed I did the anime first. Clannad is, more than most other Key VNs, a "hunting" VN. That is, a VN in which you're supposed to explore and discover the endings yourself, with the bad endings generally giving you a clue as to what you missed. A product of another time when people afforded the game and would have no money for anything else for months so they'd spend all their time playing around with it.
  20. @Eclipsed In a rare turn of events, I'd actually argue the anime adaptation of Clannad is better, with the Visual Novel as an appendix if you want to spend more time in the world. In either case, don't shy away from just doing the heroines you feel like (and then maybe watching the anime, because it does differ).
  21. Well, from what I'm hearing I guess Island should be on my list. I guess I skipped over it in my "I bet the romance sucks, not going to play it" phase.
