    Omokage Railback Few words about it. I don't like Juri tbh. Also Masashi is bland. As for plot it was nothing awesome but was quite interesting. Things I like about it 1. Strong side characters. 2. Art. It's a pretty game. Just look at the interface. The character art is great and the cgs 3. Nanoha. Kawaii desu. Favorite heroine is Lemon. 😁 7.7/10
  5. Voices/Seiyuus you like!

    I want to reread this thing. I have the same thoughts except that I'm waiting for Zwei for Saki too. lol I was amazed with the concept of FC, but the protagonist is weak-willed. He should regain himself on Zwei, yes. Houkago no Futekikakusha (21 hrs). I have tried this last year but was too scared and dropped it after knowing their situation. こんな世界なんていやだよ!うわぁぁぁ~ お母さああぁぁぁん~!yeah I was something like that. Though because of Inochi no Spare, I became quite confident so I read it. Turns out I developed a strong resistance towards tragic stories. Looking at vndb, the distribution of votes is really wild. While I can understand why some readers hate this game, I just love it so you can do nothing about it. Houkago no Futekikakusha is a fantasy-utsuge with mystery and chuuni elements. A pattern can be seen in the routes, but it never felt repetitive. I hated Shiori-sensei but hey, I came to like her and it turned out that she had the better route aside from Haruka. Kanade though is simply the cutest heroine (piano girl~ otoko no roman!) and am quite disappointed with Asagao because she felt like an incomplete tsundere... My route rankings will go as Haruka>Shiori>Kanade>Asagao. For heroine rankings, it will go as Haruka>Kanade>Shiori>Asagao. Asagao is by no means a bad girl or has a bad route. It's just that, it appeared to me that she didn't shine in her own route. lol. On the other hand, Haruka is the best. I have never seen a heroine as otokomae as her before. I'd say she's more courageous, and more kakkou ii than most protagonists in VNs. She is intelligent, can think calmly even on extreme situations, and will never leave those in need of her help. Plus the VA... Wow. I'm loving her VA (same as Misato in Sinsemilla), which strikes me as sexy and cute. The contrast between her girliness and "manliness" easily puts her in my list for top 3 heroines in VNs. Itsuka who is partially-voiced (Narita from Hello lady), doesn't fell too far behind from Haruka's awesomeness. He is a ganbariya, has strong sense of responsibility, and doesn't hesitate to sacrifice his feelings for the class he treasures. He seeks to regain their carefree and casual days more than anything. Thinking about it, he's a little bit simillar with Dies Irae's Ren, but Itsuka is better. Ren kind of always try to act cool in front of the girls, but Itsuka is naturally kakkou ii. Outstanding cast. Top-notch voice acting of all the characters. Heroines and protagonist aside, the couples in the game stood out to me as well. The CGs are good. Around half of them are those you would expect from a chuuni VN. The bgm are mainly piano pieces that effectively adds to the atmosphere. Games like this sure have good bgm eh. It has few icha-icha (thank God) and h-scenes but there is a patch for additional h-content. Kanade is so cute there... Overall I was highly satisfied, and it was a lot better than I expected. I was literally clapping my hands on the ending. My biggest complaint though is that it wasn't able to make me cry. I got teary-eyed 3 times, but that's it. It's a very emotional VN but the fantasy elements prevented me from deep immersion into the story. This always happen to me. I-It's not like I don't have a heart or anything. I just find it difficult to imagine myself in the same situation as the characters in a fantasy VN. Aside from that, I wanted to see more of their slice of life scenes, even in the form of flashbacks or something. The cast is just so good, I wanted to see some more of their normal life. "Another story" for each couples would have been pretty interesting too... Too bad, I'll just leave that on my imagination... On another note, I'm not bothered in most readers complaint as to "Why on earth do the characters have to suffer on this nightmare!!!". I was like 別にいいじゃんか。細かいこと気にすんなっての lol Screenshots There goes the last VN for me before starting, most probably, the busiest jiki of my life so far. And I wanted to read the Newton's apple game and Dies irae's english version too... Hiatus, hiatus...

    Finished Tasogare no Sinsemilla. Length is 35-40 hrs. A fantasy-mystery VN by Applique. I have to admit this is not my thing. There are 7 heroines and finishing all routes including the fragments will lead to the Sinsemilla episode which is the best thing in the game. However I'm not much impressed to be honest. My biggest problem is that I only like 3 out of the 7 girls (Sakuya, Misato, Akane, 2 of which are even sub heroines) making the routes of the girls I don't like, hard to enjoy and stressful. I find Iroha bland, the way Ginko talk exceeeedingly annoying, and there are even two children. My dislike for most of the characters ruined it for me. That being said the 4 "main" heroine routes are technically pretty good. Overall, imoutoge. Sakuya is a first-class imouto. http://i.imgur.com/mq8neAb.png .............. Finished Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi (13 hrs). 嗚呼~すっきりしたぜ。Kami yo, I feel so proud finishing this game. Thank you for this xp lol Top-notch art, bgm, presentation and concept. I have no idea that I have a VN like this sitting on my backlog for years. This is my first Nitroplus VN and it's wArPEd aS f U C k. Recommended to those who like baseball, I guess... haha... ha ha ha ha. . .otoko no. . .roman daze. . . . Miyuki. . . aishiteru. .ze. . . . http://i.imgur.com/Mkay36y.png My favorite character in the game. Love the voice acting. http://i.imgur.com/iXz20vJ.png The best girl in the game though

    Pretty much common in the mystery genre. Never bothered with them Finally got in the mood to read some new VN after rereading KnS series. I'm on 3rd terrace in the second episode. Satsuki is a goddess http://i.imgur.com/6vq8TKk.png and Chizuru is a bitch http://i.imgur.com/E02ONgR.png For new reading, have just started Tasogare no Sinsemilla. The setting is Countryside, which is my favorite setting. The art is so good. It makes me wonder why this VN's art is more refined than Tsukikage no Simulacre, which I tried a little bit before. Sakuya hasn't appeared yet, but I can see that she will be my favorite heroine. Looks like it's going to have mystery! I would love to know why a lot of people love the game. http://i.imgur.com/zairJ4J.png

    I was waiting for somebody else to answer your question, because I really suck at analyzing and paying attention to minor details. Leyline 2 has the biggest cliffhanger ever... I hope the 3rd game will satisfy you
  11. Inochi no Spare - Akabeisoft3 (2016)

    Most probably you have already heard about this game before. Therefore, I don't feel the need to introduce the story and the characters. I simply wanted to recognize this game for being the best VN I have read so far, beating G-senjou no Maou in terms of emotional impact I received. I’m going to share my thoughts on the game, which can be very subjective. Please don’t comment spoilers. やばい。この子超可愛い... 俺の、ワイフになってください! There are a lot of emotional scenes in the game, rooting from the protagonist's background and from the extreme situation the characters are facing. I had a lot of questions when I started reading. Most of them are basic ones which are usually given right away in the introduction of a setting. However, this VN slowly answered those questions, oftentimes in the form of flashbacks. Is this a good thing? It felt quite mysterious and new to me, so if you'll ask me I'd say it's good. Some argue that Oumonbyou is vaguely described and it needed more information. I beg to differ. For readers like me who find infodumping mendoukusai, the writer of this game did a perfect job. If they go more scientific and specific, I might get bored and go with another VN like what I usually do. For me, the background of Oumonbyou is just about right, enough to make the readers realize that it's one heck of a fucking disease. Why do I love this game? There are three main reasons. First, it managed to hook me from start to finish by giving a serious premise and ending the game the way I wanted to. Second, I love the cast specially the protagonist. Third, it made me cry which is rare in my case. Personally, the best thing in this game would be the family theme because it was able to move me even more than the romance. Ryuuji's relationship with his parents and brother, the heroine's relationship with her sister and parents, and the relationship of Ryuuji with the heroine's family. It feels like, the world is unfair but is kind at the same time --- a good balance of frustrating and heartwarming moments. 時よ止まれ――おまえは美しい! Character development is excellent particularly in the romance theme. The progression of the relationship felt natural given the situation. This was even more emphasized in the last 5 hours of the game, where various emotions are presented in a way that gradually created huge tension, and eventually "snapped" on the ending leaving a strong impression. The ending of the game is my ideal ending, and the epilogue would be my favorite part. 何故でしょうかね! This VN is not for everybody. From the time you start the game, you'll immediately get an idea if you can take it or not. If you have enjoyed Kara no Shoujo series which is another awesome utsuge, you might like this game too. I love the background music that reinforces drama, suffering and the light/heartwarming scenes. The standing CGs are great but there are problems with some CGs (ie. body proportions). There are tons of hscenes and I skipped through most of them but some actually contributed to the plot. This is an easy read, for those wondering about the language difficulty. The OP is as good as the story. The musical arrangement, the lyrics and of course the vocals accurately portray the feels of the game. When I first heard the song last year, I have played it again and again up until now. For those who don't know, Shimotsuki Haruka did OPs of Innocent Grey games and tons of other great VN songs like "Sketchbook" in Tokisoku, "Stellar dream" in Hoshimemo, Hakoniwa Logic, etc. She's one of my favorite artists. めっちゃええわ~ 声ホンマ天使やで~ Four days have passed since I finished this but I still find it difficult to get up and pick my next VN. All I did was to sing Liblume over and over. Inochi no Spare will remain vivid in my memory for a long time. いわゆる1つの、甘くて切ない物語ってやつ! "This is a story, about doing something for the sake of a love one." That original line sums up Inochi no Spare pretty well, but I'm not confident with my translation. tehe

    It's good stuff, only if you appreciate Ushio. The other routes are weak but I think some are decent (like Tsubaki's). ......................... Finished Inochi no Spare. Length is 13.5 hrs That fucking kabocha. Naita yo maji de kusottare!!! 。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。 What striked me most in the game is the Family theme. The main reason I cried. Otoo-san, Okaa-san, Shimai, Ani. 家族っていいなー 。゚ヽ(゚´Д`)ノ゚。 いわゆる1つの、甘くて切ない物語ってやつ! My impression in the game is "hope" rather than "depression". I specially love the epilogue. I cried there and got goose bumps. What a lovely story.

    Re-read Leyline 1. I just love this series. The pacing is great. The ADV feel is strong making the reader excited to know what will happen next as Tokusa solve the cases. I'll rate this as a page-turner if this is a book. The manner of how the writer gave/hid the information necessary for foreshadowing in what would someone normally consider as just a simple Tsukkomi-boke or slice of life conversation is just... awesome. Everything is connected. すごいし言えん For someone who value comedy elements in VNs, I'd say the comedy here is top-notch. Shimoneta is not used in the game, which is rather unique as most VNs depend on that for laughs. I love shimoneta too though. I just realized that this VN is rather short, like around 12 hrs I think. Also, for readers who love twists, this VN is right up your alley. Anyway, the world needs more tsunderes. http://i.imgur.com/RCCUmEs.png I'll now go to either Totono / Inochi no spare / Onigokko.
  15. Unconventional Romance

    Kara no shoujo series - the protagonist had to be a temporary teacher in an all-girls school. You know what happens next. For the second episode, there is some incest however it doesn't involve the mc. Yosuga no sora - Incest. Everyone seems to like this.
