    Yeah, a good protagonist should be a super manly badass who doesn't give a fuck about anything. And he should curse, smoke, drink beer and after drinking the beer, throw the bottle at some bitch's head.

    I think dropping the term "After story" from your minds is helpful, because the After part generally has a comparable length to the school part. It's not "Route+After", it's simply "Route". And yes, every girl has between 8 and 10 H-scenes. Rikka has 10 and two of these can actually be skipped/missed if I recall correctly.

    You forgot Nastuki. According to trip, Natsuki is the shortest route. I don't remember my exact times, but Marika is a tad longer than Misa and Sora would be in the middle overall. Touko is apparently long, but I haven't finished that one yet.

    Musings: all the school routes have some structural overlaps with one another due to the time-frame of the events and I like that all of them play out differently and partially happen in entirely different locations based on who you are dating.

    Nothing elaborate, I just check my watch before and after I read. The entire VN is basically filler, that's kind of the premise of HoshiOri. It's a genuine SoL, without the usual "lets throw an hour long misunderstanding in there". Rikka's route has one drama thing happening, which the script builds up to in advance and after it's resolved (doesn't take that long, our protag is pretty competent for once), that was it.
  7. How do you choose your first route?

    A popular strategy is to just go for the girl that shows interest in the protagonist the earliest (I c... I mean scientists call it the low hanging fruit solution). Me, I'm a wild card. I just go for whatever and usually end up with a route I don't care about in my backlog because I couldn't restrain myself from saving my favorite for last.

    Somehow, I did not actually get bored. There was the point at the 8 hour mark when I looked at the clock saying out loud "wait, they're still not a couple?" but aside from that I kind of just ate that route in one go excluding sleep and food breaks on a weekend. Being invested in Rikka most likely helped, I love her. HoshiOri is a baffling VN, as I couldn't believe how invested I was in a story about what amounts to nothing. After spending all this mundane time with her, I felt as if I was actually married to Rikka. This VN sincerely makes me reconsider ever thinking "this melodrama is dumb, but you have to have something going on in your plot right?" about other moege.

    Heads up for everyone going into Rikka blind: Her route is long. REALLY LONG. I clocked it in at 29 hours, the other routes I finished in a third or less than that time.

    I wish I had magical translation notes that let me translate something without knowing the language. Lucky OP.
  11. Where is the fun if they cut out the eldritch horror?
  12. Chrono Clock Poll & general discussion.

    I think the common route would've had a neater impact if it ended in a life lesson.
  13. Suki Suki aka If You Love Me Then Say So Released

    I could probably teach a class on Chiho's route. refer to this post. It's kind of a mess.
  14. Thoughts on Route length?

    I'm (pleasantly) surprised that only a single voter took the purist combo of all equal length + same number of H-scenes. Human brains are prone to pattern recognition and preference, so I expected more people to swing that way.
  15. I'm on the complete opposite end; I hate the "realistic" (can't fit enough quotation marks around that word, so I wont even try) first time scenes, where the guy busts before putting it in, the scene has to stop in the middle and/or the everpresent painful hymen breaks. The main attraction of fiction is escapism, so why would I want to escape into incompetent fucking? Same reason why I don't want to see condoms. I have to deal with this sense-numbing garbage IRL already, because out here pregnancy and disease are actually a problem. So keep that stuff the fuck away from my fantasies at least. @the original topic: Drawing a good H-CG is hard, considering you have to see the important parts without obscuring the POV of the camera. Everyone hates floating dicks, so sometimes the art requires a dumb and uncomfortable sex position to show everything off or to simply have more variety. If we go by an average 3-scenes-per route, 4 main characters basis, drawing the same 2 or 3 positions 3 or 4 times would get both boring to draw and to look at pretty quick. That applies to porn in general and is the reason why it's 18+.
