What are you playing?

Good Ending is the top? Just the choice (not the name of the choice, keep the spoilers dead!)

Not everyone remembers the position of the choices, so it's a little hard to tell you which one will get you what ending without spoilers of any kind :/  In the case of Makina's route, just use common sense.  Really, the choice is that easy.  One choice will quite obviously fuck shit up, the other will not.

 

I honestly didn't care much for any of that. I liked the route, period. (Michiru being there might have helped)

It's not that I dislike Michiru herself; she's actually one of the characters I like.  My ranking of the heroines in terms of how much I like them is 1) Sachi  2) Amane  3) Michiru/Yumiko  4) Makina (Makina kinda creeps me out with the whole "Papa" thing, so that's one of the reasons she's my least favorite), so she's tied with Yumiko for 3rd place on my list of favorites.  The thing I had an issue with was her route, specifically that her route was so unrealistic while the others weren't.  If they had all been unrealistic, I wouldn't have minded, but almost all of them are (fairly) realistic, so her route sticks out like a sore thumb in that sense.  I didn't mind that Hoshimemo's routes were unrealistic because they all were, so it made sense.  It'd be like if a book in the genre of realistic fiction suddenly switched things up and threw magic in there, or like the ending to this Nicolas Cage movie (not to say that her route is as bad as that piece of crap, just using it as an example of why I dislike her route).  It wouldn't have been out of place in, for example, a KEY novel (what someone previously mentioned), but it's a little strange that they included it in Kajitsu.

 

EDIT: The TV Tropes entries for Out-of-Genre Experience and Genre Shift perfectly explain why I don't like Michiru's route.  Thank you, TV Tropes.  I love you so much.

guys I solved it I solved it, I finally know why mmorpgs make female armor so skimpy     Sharty's face is just priceless

Picked up, or rather finally started Ace Attorney trilogy on my 3DS. Finished the first game, in the middle of Ep1 of the 2nd game, which is atm a shame because i expected Phoenix to start off veteran

Finished Sekien no Inganock, and holy fucking shitballs, why didn't I read this sooner? Seriously the atmosphere, the music, the charcters the story I think I may have found my next 10 on my vndb no e

Ah thanks for your opinion. I only asked for the option.

Utterly my fault.

You specifically stated that you wanted someone to indicate whether the correct choice was the top or the bottom one. Yet I told you the contents of a choice (somewhat).

I will say once again that it's dangerous to ask this kind of question before you get there, but you're right on this occasion.

Just so I stop making useless contributions to this thread, I have now finished Irinas route on 'My Girlfriend is the president'. Has some really good moments that I loved. Mostly Irinas change of personality when it comes to Junichiro.

wait wait wait ...

 

Grisaia spoiler

Yuuji killed his father? The other arcs don't state anything like that. I know the parents divorced.

You're lucky. I noticed that his VNDB character profile didn't hide the tag of "parricide" in the "Engages in" section, even if you say "Hide spoilers". I knew enough Latin roots to know what that meant (without looking it up), so...that surprise never surprised me.

  Your mentioning it reminded me about how it's not hidden, and I just fixed it.  Seriously, no idea why they didn't classify it as spoilers.  Maybe someone derped out.

I'm still in the common route of Grisaia. I know shit's gonna go down at some point, so this is very much subject to change, but so far I'm of the opinion Sachi/Amane > Makina/Michiru > Yumiko. Yumiko just gets on my nerves. I'm sure there's some deep reason for her behaviour, wouldn't be the first time, but honestly I don't care. I'm not a fan of defrosting the ice queen, never will be. I look forward to ignoring her. For reference I skipped Aoba's route entirely in Family Project. Come at me bro.

 

Michuru is surprisingly pleasant so far. Fake tsunderes are so much better than the real thing. The self-awareness and jokes at her expense are wonderful. Chirpy/clingy characters deoesn't annoy me as much as it does some others (I tend to be fine with girls so long as they aren't violent/abusive), so Makina is more or less fine by me. Sachi is delightful and Amane is a bro, no problems here (so far).

I wonder if beans have emotions?

 

Michiru's route is just too philosophical for me.

 

...Well, so far, truth be told, it's a bit shakily written, and Yuuji feels out of character compared with previous routes. But meh, let's see where that leads us, I'm getting some nice laughs out of there and it feels like it could end up being more than that.

I just thought it was a bad route,

First of all being a fake tsundere, then the shitty forced drama with moewmel and her split personality not to mention the entire pretend dating spiel, not to mention her split personality gets reduced to nothing more than an imaginary friend in the sequels

My hopes of it getting good are pretty slim actually. In itself it could be really interesting, that thematic of

split personality, deep social anxiety, overall fear of some metaphysical questions

...but from what I see it's just not going to be treated well. Yuuji feels completely weird. Also dat beach scene that looked straight out of an H-doujin.

Read the fandisc and find out WHY Houzuki is the way he is.

I plan on doing that as soon as I finish Sharin no Kuni.  Hopefully I can finish the other parts of Sachi's route and the other routes faster than I've been doing for her chapter.  Really dragging my feet for some reason.

Don't rush it, it's a nice story so just take it in as you can.

Finally finished Chapter 2.  One line really gave me some insight into Houzuki's character:

Houzuki: "Detestable villains such as myself are necessary to urge those who reach toward the sun, such as Mitsuhiro, into action."

 

Really changed my whole perspective.

 

You're in the apple tree part, well it's a controversial part in Makina's route for a lot of people.

Yeah...I expected that she'd

pretend that she was what the agents/guards thought she was at first: an innocent girl that accidentally wandered into the wreckage of the apartment building. You'd think Yuuji would've taught her to use other skills than hand-to-hand combat, right? It just wasn't the right decision on her part, which reflected poorly on Yuuji, since he was effectively her teacher.  Trying to beat down people with guns is a pretty bad idea, no matter how good you are.  Plus, her going there at all is a little weird.  She's supposed to be a genius, after all.
