  1. So I was thinking about the novels I've played and noticed that in certain titles, in the beginning of the common route, they give you choices that have little story effect just to give you a sense of fulfillment which some readers like. Of course their are normally big choices later on, if a development team puts time into choices that really no effect in the long run, just to keep the reader interested, why are kinetic novels gaining popularity? You have absolutely no effect on the plot (like you're reading a normal book) so why do so many people pay money for these over-hyped books disguised as games?
  2. I was seriously going to purchase this VN until I thankfully read some comments.... on steam, they cut out h-scenes which I dont know why I expected that not to be an issue... I guess I forgot. That is already a deal breaker... but they went as far as to cut out things like hand holding, kissing, etc... the normal stuff. So... Im hoping someone knows a way for me to get a version with everything in it, perhaps using something that starts with a "T" ends with an "ent" and is done by loyal fans,... including H-scenes. What a joke that official translation turned out to be. so yeah.. help me out? Thanks.
  3. VNs for a starter?

    Hey guys! I have been here for a few months now. I don't read Visual Novels but since this forum is mainly for VNs, I decided to try! I enjoy horror / romance mangas a lot! If you could suggest me some of your favourites, I will be appreciated! Lasly I have no interest in ero stuff ^-^'' Thanks to everyone who read this Here have a Maki picture!
  4. PSP VN's?

    hello everyone. I was just wondering if you know some of english translated psp visual novels out there. Right now, I have Toradora so I don't have any VN to play after this. I would really appreciate if you have some. If possible, an anime based one will do. Thank you
  5. How To Read Moege 101 - A Comprehensive Guide Preface Many people struggle with learning a second language. If it just so happens that you're trying to learn Japanese, you can probably already tell by now that it's not an easy task. I can relate to the tormenting frustration of desperately wanting to read a certain VN, but being unable to merely due to a lack of Japanese proficiency. Having to look up every word in the dictionary is not only time consuming - it's also actually not that productive because chances are, you won't remember half of what you read. You shouldn't dive into a visual novel that's way above your difficulty level. You need to prepare body and soul with some hearty foreplay. Yes, foreplay. But alas, you don't have the slightest idea as to how you should go about doing that. You have my condolences. That's why I am writing this guide - not to teach you how to read Japanese per se, but to make it easier for you to read your very first untranslated 'moege'. After reading a few on your own, you will start to get the feel of Japanese writing, humour, expressions, and maybe even pick up some kanji. I am merely dropping you off at the doorstep - you still have a long road ahead of you. Good luck. 1) Understanding How Moege Work Moege is derived from the two words, "moe" and "game" (self-explanatory). You're usually going to be paying attention to the characters more than anything else in the game. Sure, they look nice, but what I really mean is their personality. Indeed, personality. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that personality is more important than looks! That only happens in 3D (but let's not get to that right now)... Anyway, there are a select few 'generic' and frankly 'stereotypical' heroine-types that you will find in pretty much every moege. I won't go into too much detail, but I'll describe a few of their unique traits. This will not only help you connect to the heroines better, but it will also help you guess or 'predict' what they are saying (even if you can't read the Japanese) which will be further explained in the next section. I am only going to list five, though I'm sure there are many more out there waiting to assault their onii-chans.The stereotypical heroine archetypes I am going to expand on are: The Tsundere The Senpai The Onee-chan The Klutz The Osananajimi (Childhood Friend) Now, I realize that there may be a tsundere senpai onee-chan klutz osananajimi somewhere out there, but let's leave that for now. Due to popular demand, I will unveil a brand new section for everyone's favourite (including mine) - the imouto. The Imouto 2) Reading Between The Lines Now that you have most of the basic heroine-types nailed down, it's time to learn how to read between the lines (or, "I don't know these words, but judging from their facial expressions, tone, the situation at hand, and their stereotype, I can probably guess what's going on!" for short). The point is that you shouldn't get stuck on a few words you don't know. Sometimes it's best to read through context instead. Like I said before, foreplay. You can grind (hue) all those difficult kanji symbols (that you may or may not ever see again) later. That's all just memorization, and a whole lot of studying. But right now we're tackling a more technical aspect of the Japanese language. Now's the time to sit down and enjoy a moege. 3) Kanji/Vocab You Should Probably Know These are kanji or basic vocab words that you will see in almost every moege. I will add to this list as necessary, so feel free to leave a comment if you think I missed anything key. I will cut it off somewhere so people don't get overwhelmed though, so pick the ones you think show up in 99% of exclusively moege. For now, I will briefly go through them all: 4) Where To Start Honestly, there isn't really a list of VNs I can give you. Besides, that wouldn't be fun. You should read things you think you'll really enjoy. But if moege are not for you, then suck it up. You have to learn to walk before you can learn to run. I guess all I have to say for now is that Cube, ALcot, and Favorite (albeit games by Favorite are harder reads) are all companies that make great moege that are, at the same time, relatively easy to read. If you find yourself bored to death starting out, feel free to pick another game. If you think it's still too hard for you (this is kinda late but make sure you've mastered basic hiragana and katakana), push on through. Don't stumble every time you come across a word you don't know, or you don't know what's going on. Just playing through will help you, even if just a little.
  6. PS Visual Novels

    Is there anyway to port PC Visual Novels to PSP?
  7. Hey, I was meaning to sign up to this site sooner but real life got in the way... But it's better late than never as they always say. I've been meaning to search for a good forum where I can talk about VNs, Anime and Manga (and almost anything) and Fuwanovel looks perfect! Intro and About Me I have played a few VNs, my first being 'Fate/Stay Night' which really got me into the whole niche community (still waiting for Fate/Hollow Ataraxia). Then it was: Majikoi, MonMusu Quest, G-senjou No Maou, currently playing Majikoi S... something like that and probably a couple more. My hobbies consists of playing Basketball, DDR, Manga, Anime, Books, reading fanfictions mostly on Rosario + Vampire cos I love Inner Moka, listening to music and watching films. I also like dancing as well. Currently in college going onto my final year studying Business, Classical Civilisation and Computing. Right now I'm in the process of coming up with ideas for a short VN using Ren'Py, so I can't wait to get started on designing and developing it. Skills I like designing and writing up websites to kill time, also like to play around with Ren'Py and Visual Basic. Basically I'm an amateur programmer - can't do no hacking or the sort just yet for VNs (sorry about that). Drawing was a favourite past time of mine, and so my tablet came in handy whenever I wanted to just draw on the computer. However, ever since I came out of secondary school with a grade C cos my teacher hated me for drawing Manga all the time, I slowly stopped drawing, but I think I'm still good. I was pretty good in English back in secondary school, so in order to help and put myself out there as willing to do something for the team, I like to be a Quality Checker or Editor - basically something to do with text. I enjoy writing stories so I think I can be useful to a team. I think that's the basic of me - sorry if I rambled on for too long but I can't wait to be involved in this community. Please take care of me!
  8. Hi! new dude here!

  9. My introduction to anime and eroge were actually by my freinds. I never did engaged in any japan stuff before that. During high school I was introduced to Fate Stay Night eroge and Princess Lover anime and that was what made me to an otaku as of today. But I was only the one to go far as playing untranslated eroge and taking up japanese learning. Sadly they were not as enthusiastic as me. When going to college I did had one that do play only translated visual novels, he was more to playing social games though and anime. Not so many in college really engaged to anime stuff. So how about you, got any freinds other that on the net that engages on visual novels ? . . . .eroge and galge isn't a very common type of game people play in contrast to rpg, shooter, racing or sports. I would like to know . . . .

  12. CG Extraction

    Does anyone here know any decent method of extracting visual novel CG's and character art? Any help or information is appreciated.
  13. Hello, people I'm new here on the forums and was curious on volunteering to translate visual novels. I've noticed that some projects on the websites have been dropped and sadly I wished they hadn't. Now I want to pick up on those project and revive them but unfortunately I don't know how. So I was wondering if someone can teach me how to translate visual novels if they have the time that is. Though I won't always be available since I go to school and will be only doing on my free time. So if anyone can spare some of their time and teach me the basics of translating that would be great. Thank you and much appreciated,

  15. Piracy

    This is a hot-button topic among many people, but I want to hear your thoughts on this subject. There's no beating around the bush with this one, but I'll point out the elephant in the room. Fuwanovel is a site for piracy. Now before people start attacking me, let me make one thing perfectly clear. I am a strong supporter of piracy, and fully support this site. With that out of the way, let's move on to the actual topic. I'm starting this thread because as I use the Internet more each day, I think about how much I owe to it for giving many of the games and movies that I've ever looked at. A majority of the albums in my digital music library and the majority of the films that I watch nowadays come from The Pirate Bay and other torrent/download sites. Many of the visual novels I've ever read I downloaded from Fuwanovel and other places. But why exactly do I defend piracy besides the fact that it gives people free stuff that they'd normally have to pay for? Simple. Because it's completely harmless. We live in an age where everything is digital and a copy of anything can be made for virtually nothing. The argument that I've often heard against piracy is the whole "stealing a car from the lot" analogy. There's a big difference between stealing a car and downloading a copyrighted work for free. A car is made out of physical parts and part of processes that each cost money to collect, build, assemble, and ship out. A digital download on the other hand contains no such thing. It's simply a COPY of a work that was created once. Another argument against piracy that I've heard is that it "hurts the audience." In my opinion, this is one of the weakest excuses I've ever heard. Let's take the Avengers for example. It was the highest grossing film of 2012 making of $1 billion. Now tell me, do you think that if a few thousand people pirate the movie online that Joss Whedon, Marvel, or Disney will go out of business? They're filthy rich and aren't losing money. They're MAKING money. And if you want more proof that Hollywood isn't leaving anytime soon, then simply look at the recession. During that brief time period where we thought that America would have another Great Depression, Hollywood lost the LEAST amount of jobs. The movie, music, and video games industry are all worth billions of dollars and still going strong. Piracy can't even make a dent in that. Piracy actually helps SPREAD the word of products. For instance, if I pirated an album from a certain band and I like them; what's stopping me from going to one of their concerts? You can't pirate a real live performance. Nor can you pirate merchandise such as T-shirts and other collectables. To begin with, big music artists see little money from their own albums since the majority of the profits go to the record labels. If you still think that piracy is so bad, I'm willing to bet that you're guilty of it but don't realize it. If you've ever borrowed anything like a movie, book, or video game from a friend you've pirated it. If you've ever checked out anything at your local library, you my friend, are a pirate. Did you pay for the copyrighted work? No. Are you viewing/reading/playing the entire thing to completion? Yes. What if you decide to use perfectly legal software like iTunes to rip tracks from a CD that you borrowed? How is that piracy if iTunes, a major company that ironically was made to PREVENT piracy, officially sanctions? How exactly is checking out a movie from the library and returning it any different than downloading the same movie off of Pirate Bay and then deleting it off your hard drive once you've finished it? There is something that I do have to address though when it comes to piracy: indie developers. If you're an indie film maker, indie game designer, or indie music artist; then piracy might have a bigger effect on you. For instance, if one guy made a super popular game but a majority of people pirated it, then he will likely lose a lot of money since he's the sole owner of the intellectual property. It isn't like Warner Bros. or Activision where there's tons of other factors involved. So if you can, you should probably do your best to support small teams by buying their products. And if you can't afford them, try waiting for great deals on Steam or giving them donations. This post is quickly becoming longer than I expected, by I hope you've got the point across. TL;DR: Piracy is perfectly fine, and is a perfectly harmless way to experience media. With a few exceptions, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. What are your thoughts?
