  1. Is the TL ultimately a disappointment?
  2. I was so sure you'd answer something along those lines. I didn't mean that it was the ONLY technique among many others, but given your apparent disdain for flashbacks I found wise to highlight that this particular technique was not used in an attempt to take the easy road but because it suited the story really well. The thing is that all these flashbacks are more akin to short stories than flashbacks. And labelling them as nothing more than lazy infodump is inappropriate since a great deal of care has been put into making them genuinely entertaining. They don't focus only on pas
  3. That's not really fair of you to claim that, since, as you said, you didn't read Fata Morgana and can't pinpoint anything concrete. I'm not saying that every single writing technique, as tedious for the reader as it can be, is justified as long as it's for the sake of the plot. In that particular case, I don't think it was used badly, at least it didn't feel that way at all (and I am rather sensible to pacing in general, given my short attention span). The story puts a big emphasis on the idea that people never act out of ill will (at least never totally). The frequent changes of perspective a
  4. I don't understand how the story is supposed to drag out in the end, I mean, sure it's a
  5. Sarcasm isn't really your strong point, huh? I thought I made it obvious enough.
  6. Finally. Someone is here to set the record straight. You heard the man, Dies Irae is a boring piece of writing and shills played the VN community like a fiddle once again.
  7. It must be the only VN from R07 of such a length that isn't terribly paced and filled with dubious humour though (that is still present in some scenes but to a much lesser extent than in his previous works, especially Higurashi). A great read for people tired of enduring the same anime tropes again and again that are so common in many VNs.
  8. Go into the picture, so you're not missing anything. What is great with Fata Morgana is that all aspects are equally awesome. Story and writing are top-notch even if not flawless.
  9. An artistic choice I suppose. The VN has stories taking place in different locations (they're all in the West) and choosing Portuguese vocals works better than Japanese in that particular case. There is also some Latin and one song is in French. But the end result is just outstanding and that's what matter. I never heard a soundtrack this good since Umineko.
  10. Qualifying atmospheric tracks as forgettable is a blasphemy. And there are like, more than 20 songs in glorious Portuguese, that's quite a lot.
  11. Everything in this VN is fantastic. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone. (who isn't afraid of flashbacks ) These last months sure were nice. Kara No Shoujo 2, Gahkthun, Tokyo Babel and now Fata Morgana who is the best of them all imo.
  12. Both lengths allow a good story. Umineko is a relevant example of a long VN that works pretty damn well. On the other hand there are VNs like Hanachirasu and Eden* that are not only short but also good, it's a big mistake to claim one length is necessary better than the other even if it's alright to have preferences. But I guess i'm stating the obvious.
  13. Dies Irae seems likely, after all Light doesn't have any partnership with Jast, MG or Sekai Project. But the same can be said about Baldr Sky or White Album. Or maybe they're going to do a good translation of Cross Channel. How about Hello Lady! ? Well, I think we'll end up with Pure x Connect.
