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. Happy Birthday to Me

    Happy birthday Clephas, have a good one
  2. Looking for a Japanese-only recommendation

    If you like comedy go for ALcot honeycomb VNs, preferably those without fantasy elements Harupoco is a good choice
  3. What are some of your favorite songs from VNs

Lost memories by marie - & ed Tokisoku op by shimotuki Asairo op Tsunagu mirai ed by duca Null by chata Amatsutsumi op Hapymaher op Hoshiori yune mirai op Ruri no tori by shimotsuki Koi no recipe by marie Presto in hatsusaku by KOTOKO Reincarnation in nanarin Totono OP, monochrome Muramasa op Hoshizora tea party op and ed Focus love by marie Liblume in inochi no spare Skip by chata Etc My current fav singer would be Chata.. previously it was Marie. Then before that it was Shimotsuki Haruka
  4. ONE VN you should read before you die.

    Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi Every VN reader should read this game. It has a brilliant concept that can change your way of thinking and be more open-minded regarding the medium, outstanding art and excellent soundtrack that will engage you in the story and one heck of a baseball experience.
  5. Just another person unsure what what I want

    Nanairo Reincarnation.
  6. What are you reading? Untranslated edition

    Reading Reminiscence. For those who have finished Akagoei but still hesitates on doing this one... hesitate no more. The protag is as awesome as Kaito, in a different way. The comedic level of akagoei is still there and darn. It's battle of wits! Good stuff. I want Aki's route nao
  7. Thanks Clephas Wow it's detailed, that's awesome o(´∀`)o
  8. Wow... Reminiscence turns out to be pretty interesting. Last time I didn't pay much attention. We have some awesome protag on this one. And! A tsuntsun!!! Kazuhacchin!♡はぁ...はぁ...

  9. Suggestions for VN like Hatsukoi 1/1

    Clannad for family, Little Busters! for friendship. Both are good vns. Though I personally think Little Busters! is better. These are long vns with tons of slice of life scenes... Though I think that's what you are looking for. Personal recommendations would be Majikoi series and Grisaia series
  10. I'm going to try Reminiscence for the... third time? I hope I can finish it this time.

  11. Recommend me a VN

    Looks like we have quite similar tastes though I would say I have little or no experience in horror VNs and rpg. Caucasus ~Nanatsuki no Nie~ - I noticed you like Kara no shoujo 2. High five!! There's a high chance you'll like this too. I did. Inochi no Spare - I just love this game. It's not just about romance, the family theme is what I like about this the most. Houkago no Futekikakusha - most utsugest of the utsuges I've seen. Nanairo Reincarnation - great mixture of mystery comedy and drama. Uhm. Probably my no. 1 recommendation for you in this bunch Akeiro Kaikitan - has more horror feels than the previous game nanairo reincarnation. Read this after nanairo, it's good stuff Sakuranomori Dreamers - Mystery. Love the ADV feels, be ready for some utsu feels right from the start

    Finished Hatsuyuki Sakura (30 hrs). Overall it's a nice VN with stellar cast though I have to say that I don't care about Shirokuma, I hate her and her VA. It's very fun to read for me with all those comedy and character interactions right from the start, like the manly conversations with Nozomu. There's also the Valentine's day scenes for example.. The ousama game, the basketball... lol Even the mob characters are great in terms of comedy. Favorite heroine route would be Aya's (well Sakura has the best but...). I love the way it was delivered. Felt completely new. Plus factor would be the voice acting... Shounen-kuchou. Ahhh~ reminds me of Touko of KnS. It just feels good in the ears you know... For the dramatic part of things... I wasn't immersed and am not much into it. I don't like the whole ghost affair to be honest. Though I have to say that I got the longest goosebumps I ever had from reading a VN. It's a good read, and I can understand why a lot of people love this VN though personally, it was nothing awesome ('cause I didn't cry). Best things I like about this would be Hatsuyuki for being a tsundere yankee and the comedy.
  13. Visual Novel suggestions for 2018 plz

    Umineko is just so long.. It'll take hours and hours of your life. Hoshimemo is good stuff. Very nice atmosphere
  14. Which VN should I play next?

    I'm extremely biased here but KnS2 is a nice read. Has over 50 characters, reiji is voiced, with top-notch art (like really, it's pretty) and bgm. Storywise, overall great plot and I didn't see it coming so well-played ig. Never bored considering that it was lengthy. Most of all, the game has Yukari who is the best imouto ever.
  15. Santa Hats for your Uncultured Avatars

    Are ma! Kawaii~ Angato!
  16. What are you listening to right now?

    I love Chata... My current favorite is this. Soramimi! Soramimi oriru~ Itsuka kiita uta, omoidasu!
  17. Santa Hats for your Uncultured Avatars

    I would love to have a Christmas hat, good sir

    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
  19. Voices/Seiyuus you like!

    Yahari Kawashima rino ssune Suwabe Jun'ichi for male (reiji of kns)
  20. What are you reading? Untranslated edition

    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
  22. What are you reading? Untranslated edition

    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

    Welcome to the forums
  24. What are you reading? Untranslated edition

    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
  25. 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
