    True enough but if you and others vote for physical but just buy digital, then all the physical copies they made won't sell, they'll have lost money and that could lead to problems down the road.  I'm happy enough with getting the games and I'd probably take more games released digitally and a wealthy/happier company over physical copies with less games and a company fighting off bankruptcy.

    Mr Poltroon got a reaction from Zakamutt in Sekai Project Official Grisaia Translation?   
    I'm seriously wondering whether I'm the one who doesn't understand English or you guys are.
    https://twitter.com/...741478337482753 - Working on Sekai project.
     
    Let's analyze this sentence, shall we?
    They'll - Referring to steam
    want explicit stuff out - H-Scenes
    but off steam - Outside Steams jurisdiction
    18+ - H-Scenes
    patch is ok. - We'll get H-Scenes
     
    Now let's see what it means:
    "Steam wants H-Scenes out of the game, but outside steam there can be an 18+ patch."
     
    Of course, this doesn't mean they'll do it, though. We don't really know yet. They said earlier that they were working on it so one would assume so.
    At any rate, Sekai is doing their bloody best (or making us think they are) to get it both on steam, and still keep the whole game. 
     
    Best case scenario: Grisaia PSVita version comes out on steam English translated and the 18+ version can be acquired somewhere else (patch or otherwise)
     
    Worst case scenario: They quit this whole shenanigans. PSVita version comes out English translated. 18+ version nowhere to be seen.

    Mr Poltroon got a reaction from madvanced in Thoughts on long common routes   
    M'lord, I'm so very sorry. As it happens, not everyone has the ability to correctly discern what exactly makes them believe something is good. I myself have plenty of difficulty even trying, but I still want to share my oh-so-important opinion. I do understand it wont make for the most interesting read, though.
    So I personally am of the opinion that the "as long as it's good" is as valid an opinion as a constructive 5 page thesis about why long common routes are better. 
     
     
    I do agree that situations like this are awesome

    Mr Poltroon got a reaction from Avil in Tsundere-free VN?   
    Tsundere's these days vary a lot. As you say, I too find the Tsundere's who are more inclined to use violence and treat the MC like utter garbage for no good reason quite annoying. Especially if the protagonist just takes it all without complaint. 
    But I also see that some of my favourite characters are tsundere's. It really depends on a whole lot of factors. Generally speaking, the tsunderes who warm up to the protagonist permanently are the ones I prefer. The ones who seem to be ill-spirited all the time except in some very private moments are the ones I'd like to see at the bottom of the ocean.

    Mr Poltroon reacted to nohman in Thoughts on long common routes   
    How much I enjoy a long common route naturally depends on the quality of the visual novel. As long as I don't find a visual novel boring, I much prefer a long common route to a shorter one. A long common route gives more time to world building, character building, and makes for a more organic segue into the character specific routes (or at least generally speaking). If I had to pick one over the other, I guess I would say I would prefer a game to have a long common route as opposed to a short one. Ultimately, you can always use the skip function or load a save after all.
     
    I enjoyed Grisaia's common route in particular. The humor never fell flat and each scene developed my impression/interest of Mihama Academy's student body. This might sound strange, but I was actually a bit bummed when the common route concluded.

    Blasphemy. 
     
    At any rate, I tend to enjoy long common routes over short ones. Of course, having good characters and good interactions also helps. But I'm a fan of comedy, and common routes tend to be comedy oriented most of the time, so that might be why.

    Mr Poltroon reacted to Narcosis in [news] Sekai Project releases another TL survey, hints at Key   
    It might actually hint that Key itself is partially involved with the survey, since it's not some kind of a mystery that SP has certainly acquired contacts with them via all their previous work, including the 15th Anniversary Letter project. Key might be currently waiting for the results to decide, whether it's worth to give it a shot and work alongside SP to publish their games overseas.
     
    Results aside, it's already clear SP puts a lot of effort into their work and tries to remain as transparent, as possible. In my eyes, their close relationship with the community and focus on crowdfunding is already showing it's benefits.

    Who the hell am I kidding? You don't leave Fuwanovel. For all that is good in this world, you can't leave Fuwanovel. Once you're stuck here you're stuck in a pit of molasses; a fly on a spider's web (cut me slack on that analogy, it wasn't easy). Try as I might, I can't walk away from this website. My trigger finger is itching to fire off some new projects I have sitting in the wings, and who the hell is going to showcase those projects with all the newbies joining the site and roaming the land? There are so many people I enjoy working with on this site that I would feel awful if I left. Still, quietly coming back is just not like me; I've always been about grand presentations I guess. I woke up in the middle of the night sweating for crying out loud to type this message because I felt there was something missing in my life, and I realize now that no matter how much negativity affects us at times, at the end of the day we are the same people. This place will always be a home to me with the same positive energy I know and love. That sounds pathetic, I know, but it's the truth folks. I've said it already, and I'll say it again:
     
    We are a family. We are one messed up family mind you who sometimes want to rip each other's faces off, but you're damn right we are a family.

    With that being said, let me start by saying a few words regarding the mess surrounding my desire to leave Fuwanovel. It's a simple step-by-step process you see, one that I hope will shed light on a few things:
     
    Step 1 - I messed up, and trolls got to me personally.
    There is no step 2.
     
    And that's it. I am extremely thankful for everyone that went out of their own way to encourage me to keep at it and assist me in some personal matters. I am also grateful to those who are continuing to do so.
     
    Done. No more on that. Now, while I would love to spam this thread with all of the ideas I have in store and jump right back into the swing of things, there are a few loose ends I need to take care of beforehand. Dealing with those in the next day or so will come next. Still, I can give you something, and in that regard, I need the community's help, so please read on!
     

     
    Ren's Project Mascots
     
    I have decided to elect 2 new mascots to represent my projects on the Fuwanovel site and beyond (YouTube, Mixcloud, etc.). While most people use original characters for this kind of work, I wanted to choose characters that I think represent the idea behind my project development quite well. I originally got this idea when thinking of the famous Japanese blogger Danny Choo, who uses his own original character, Mirai Suenaga, as his iconic representation. As a fun fact, did you know she has her own airline service, as well as the fame of being Japan's official mascot for tourism in 2013? In addition, she is the same girl featured in Yuzusoft's Dracu-riot! background images and posters. Still, while I never expect to be as popular as him, I do think having some sort of theme to my projects will help establish a "personality" for what I do around the internet. These candidates (as some of you may have been aware of beforehand) are the following individuals:
     
    Hatsune Miku
     

     
    and
     
    Jakuzure Nonon
     

     
    The reason I chose these 2 girl's to be mascots for all the projects I do is because I believe they represent how I view things when it comes to making projects. Miku is a producer, a developer, and a music creator who sort of represents how I myself am a  creator of projects (to a much lesser extent). Nonon is a performer (marching bands anyone?), so I thought what better person to use than her to showcase how I like to "put on a show" for the community. Plus, I am madly in love with her heh. Now, before you say to yourself how I have totally gone off the deep end, at least here me out.
     
    I need artists!
     
    I will of course be willing to pay you for the time you spend in doing this little project for me, but in short, I need good artists who are able to draw these characters effectively. I would like to have these girl's be meshed into single pieces of artwork (aka together), as well as drawn with unique flair and costumes/poses for my projects. If you are at all interested in helping me out in this endeavor, please, please, please PM me as I would A. love to see what you can do, and B. love your help. If you have any questions, let me know as well. Thanks guys!
     
    And with that, I end this post. Thank you again everyone, and I hope you can welcome me back one last time.

    Hmm... When the characters have no voice I tend to give them russian, french, german and other accents just for fun
     
    But I think I'm fairly good at getting a grasp of what voice fits whom. 
    For example, in Grisaia no Kajitsu, the protagonist isn't voiced.  But he tends to use complicated vocabulary in everyday conversation and to go into overly long explanations of simple stuff. I adapted my voice according to these parameters.
