Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. What are you playing?

    I decided to finally start up Little Busters!, which I've put off for soooo long now, but I found out I share the same birthday as Kud! (I think even the same year!) So it really sparked my interest in her!
  2. What are you listening to right now?

    This has been one of my favorite tracks from Reitaisai this year, and one of my all time favorite ENS tracks! Miko's vocals are so beautiful!

  4. I must say when I first joined the forums I was extremely shocked about how nice everyone was, and how friendly it was! My first introduction to fuwanovel was from /jp, and part of the reason why I really investigated into it was because I didn't understand at all why everyone on there was saying such horrible horrible things about it. I don't really understand why they'd get mad about the copyright stance seeing how uploads from comiket/m3/reitaisai are some of the most popular threads with everyone begging for things to be upload, as well as it being the general attitude that sharing is good as long as you support companies you care about. Even though I mostly lurk here more than I post (super shy orz) I still get really offended when people attack the website, and especially when people attack aaeru which seems to be more common... yet completely unfounded. It really boggles my mind how people who believe in and share the same interests would just attack something that really is helping and building something that is really wanted, but seemed almost impossible, a VN community in the west. I'd gladly defend here and it's the first place I'll send anyone if they ask me about visual novels! I hope it continues to grow and keep its positive attitude!
  5. Towelket: One More Time

    Since this community has a bit of users who know Japanese, I was wondering if anyone here has played Towelket, and bring attention to it for people who haven't heard or played it. Towelket: One More Time (タオルケットをもう一度) is a series of RPG Maker games that feature a cute art style juxtaposed with a story that's very dark in tone, often very philosophical, yet still finds time to be light-hearted, because of this it's often compared to the Mother series. There's currently 7 games with an 8th one in development, as well as 3 spin off games. The games aren't a continuous story, but they share similar elements and sometimes characters recur. (Though not as themselves) Much in the way Final Fantasy sequels are. I've played through two of them fully, and am in the middle of one more as well as one of the spin offs. The first one I played, Towelket 1, (which is the 3rd game) has been the second piece of fiction to ever get a tear to come down my eye. It easily became one my all time favorite games, and my most favorite RPG. The second one I finished ~fury~ has probably the darkest story I've ever encountered. It makes Saya no Uta look like a nice picnic in a sunny park. I'm not very good at explaining things myself so heres the description of the games from the wiki: Here's some screenshots if you're interested in seeing the art style: I hope that people will take an interest in it! While there's currently a partial translation of the first game, it would be amazing to see the others get translated so everyone can experience them because they're really moving. They make you really think a lot about why you're alive, what makes somebody a person, and what is time, while keeping a smile on your face, and have a few laughs along the way! You can download them at: http://www.freem.ne.jp/brand/1039 official site http://www.mediafire.com/?29mkm8hk8uo1r33 zipped collection You'll need the japanese RPGmaker RTP to play them. The game works great with Visual Novel Reader if you need furigana or want to be able to copy+paste lines, but machine translation works worse than normal due to a lot of the characters unusual names.
  6. Facebook Connect

    I'm not sure if this is on your end or facebook's, but when I click on the facebook connect thing from the profile thing to connect, it just pulls up text that says: { "error": { "message": "Error validating application. Application has been deleted.", "type": "OAuthException", "code": 101 } }
  7. Lolicon discussions

    I like loli characters when they actually have some sort of depth to them, and aren't just a generic character thrown in to appeal to lolicons. I find though that most of the ones I do like really are pretty much just a regular normal character that's petite, and young. (Unless they're something like 914 years old for some reason. Age 100+ lolis are super cute by the way. ) In fact when they start acting more and more like like little girls is when I start to dislike them, ESPECIALLY if it becomes lewd. If the character doesn't have the mentality of a little girl then I'm ok with it though. I enjoyed the scenes with Mare for example. I just don't find the personality of little girls engaging at all. However, I don't have a problem with anyone who does enjoy lewd lolicon, so long as it only applies to 2D, and nothing but 2D. I don't know if because of this I could be considered a lolicon or not, all I know is, holy mole Mare is such a cutie. I completely agree with the views in this image:
  8. Your favorite Haganai Girl

    I can't understand how anyone can chose someone that isn't Kobato! She's such a sweet and caring imouto!! Every time I hear her "kukuku" I seriously melt. Very related.
  9. What are you playing?

    I just finished Katahane, dang was that cute!
  10. PSO2 - Phantasy Star Online 2

    If anyone would like to play with a level 3, I'd gladly join in! Also, is Sega still blocking foreign IPs from making an account?
  11. Favorite Anime

    That's a really tough question.... my answer to that is usually Cromartie High because I've seen it a ton of times, and it's always great. If a need a good dose of moe though, Milky Holmes is the best.
  12. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

    Nope! Any old email will do! There's actually a guide on how to register here. You can also find a bunch of helpful information here.
  13. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

    I wasn't expecting it to come to Seattle at all... maybe your wishes will come true! ^^; By the way, is anyone playing Madoka Online?
  14. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

    I thought that it was really interesting how they blended a bunch of genres together, and came out with a more gritty take on mahou shoujo. I can't say it's my favorite series, but I can see why a lot of people enjoyed it so much, and why it's gotten so big. I'm debating if I want to go see the movie since it's coming to Seattle.
