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

Ok. So, I started reading VNs in 2014. That's like what, 7 years? And my VNDB lists 76 finished, which makes 10-12 per year average. You could say I'm a seasoned veteran now (not really, still a flipp

I'm looking forward to it. It'll be my second time after Corpse Party to read a VN series that has multiple installments, and I've been itching for a series #justreadFate/Stay&Muv-Luv&Majikoi DW THESE ARE ON MY RADAR TOO

Though, if I go on a mass rulebreaking spree on Dec. 31st and all of a sudden you guys see newest member  "desplicE" or something being created on Jan 1st with a new IP address and whatnot.. . :sachi:

Cartagra first impressions:

  • For 2005, the art's not bad at all, and the game has all the basic necessities like backlog, notes on saves, voice playback continuing after clicking..
  • Kazuna is such a sweetheart
"Yes, you can join me on the search"

...LADY DID YOU NOT HEAR WHAT HE SAID

 

 

Due to the mystery-crime nature of this stuff, I will post updates as I progress regarding my theories and baseless assumptions, along with more Kazuna highlights 'less she isn't an important character and gets ganked

Which leads me to Baseless assumption #1:

Kazuna's "missing" twin sister, Yura, is the serial-teeth-adomen-eating murderer

 

ggez, I'm ready to move onto Kara no Shoujo now

 

.....Don't laugh ;-;

Into Chapter 2 of Cartagra

I gave into temptation and made Shugo try to take a quick bath and so he got BJ'ed by Rin, for the record I'm gonna *try* to hook him up with Kazuna, so he must abstain from now on. A quick reload shows that outright not taking a bath results in getting some CGs with the cute but underaged Hatsune instead, dunno if these two can get together but a teenager and some near-30s dude, no ty. 

I'm going for an "all choices are absolute" playthrough though so hopefully that Rin scene doesn't lock in some future outcomes. Gotta admit though, Shugo playing hard-to-get with Rin is damn hilarious:

Nope.

Toji's cool. She's that typical badass ally type character, always feels good to have them, hopefully there won't be any future drama due to her leaking info to Shugo from the Hand of Death

Hey Shugo, I know she's badass and all, but sorry nope, you're gonna get together with Kazuna.

 

 

And then you get to the end of Chapter 1 + beginning of Chapter 2 and realize why Gore & Graphic Violence are the top ranked VNDB tags for Cartagra:

WTFfFFff

Note to self: don't read Cartagra right before going to bed.

 

 

Conflict Foreshadowing #1: Wut? Some Hand of Death leader had a girl named "Hyo" to be his mistress? Wut? She looks like exactly like Yura? Wut? Kazuna is Yura's twin sister? 

Them Hand of Death bois are totally gonna try to kidnap Kazuna to replace "Hyo" and we're gonna have lots of funtime drama about that before 'Hyo' herself pops up in the nick of time for da plot twists

some reflection on Onikakushi 

I'll go back through it sometime to find what were the missing lines from the letter at the back of the clock. Really liked it, the VA adds a lot to the game (LIES!!!) but I'm glad I didn't patch in the PS3 backgrounds or sprites.

Really liked the atmosphere! Hopefully the later chapters also have a great mood (and mood shift). From when Keiichi gets Satoshi's bat, the game gets rather saddening :c

Watanagashi is downloaded already, all I need is the proper voice patch.

Yo, don't embed NSFW images even in spoiler tags. Your browser still downloads that image to your cache. Which means if you're on a monitored workstation, you can still get in trouble. Always link NSFW images.

Finished Chapter 2 Cartagra

 

What a tragedy. In the end, because of my unjustified need to hopefully one day pair up Shugo and Kazuna, poor ol' Rin didn't get to have any funtime before getting offed.

 

On the bright side, these circumstances are not as sad as they would be for ol' Shugo ie. in the case that he did in fact accept Rin's feelings, only to have her die moments later.

 

The detective session b/w Shugo and Nana was pretty fun, I got them all right, I just picked religious reasons cuz that seemed the best out of the three especially with the whole genital mutilation and crow-angel(?) wings, and then the next two questions I had that lightbulb "wait a minute, I remember reading about horse carriage before; add in religious yada yada and ding ding ding murder location is totally at the Kayo Academy Nana is attending!@#" 

 

Though I do plead guilty for momentarily thinking Nana was the culprit, idk, the way that scene played out with how 'Nana knows everything' certainly gave off vibes of a set up for a big ol "you know everything cuz YOU'RE THE MURDERER" but l0lnope

 

Anyways in the end I landed straight into Nurse Nana ending because I was a big dumb-dumby-dumb and made Shugo choose to "Investigate the crime AND search for Yura" and I guess by the laws of VN Choices even though the scenes play out exactly the same, Kazuna doesn't tell Toji to save his ass unless you choose to "Investigate the crime only" ('less there are multiple choices that tally up for this ending, dunno, I'm not using a walkthrough, but this was the only choice I had to change to not get this ending and progress to Chapter 3)

 

Bravo to pet-Shugo-basement-cannibal scenes though, these were right up to my liking ^_^

 

Nurse Nana taking advantage and banging a mentally broken Shugo in the hospital was uh, kinda ew. It was kinda obvious from the start that her end game goal would be to get Shugo's d, but man, I don't think I can take her character seriously going into later chapters after seeing how twisted she is.

 

Looking forward to how the murder mystery will play out, was expected that the nun Kaoru was responsible for only some(?) of the murders and not all(?), but I have absolutely no theories atm as to how she relates to the big baddy if at all and the whole grand scheme of things yada yada yada

 

~~

 

Going into Chapter 3, seems there's a major choice that determines whether Shugo will get some hawt time with Ujaku or simply some sweet time with Hatsune, and there are even follow up scenes later on based on that choice. 

 

Goddammit, don't tell me that it's not possible to get Shugo x Kazuna and that I've been making him abstain for naught all this time :makina:, if so, I would've gone all Witcher 1 style and make Shugo bang everybody.

 

Went with Hatsune btw. Shugo's not doing anything to her (yet?) so we're making good progress on the abstain-until-Kazuna train.

 

~~

Will be busy, so there probably won't be any updates 'til this Friday+

I'm waiting impatiently for the Clannad Steam release on Monday. I might try to pick Narcissu back up first, if I can summon the motivation this weekend, but otherwise I'll shelve that and go straight to Clannad; I definitely have nothing against Narcissu, but it just didn't grab me yet. By coincidence (yes, really) I'm taking two weeks of vacation starting Monday, including some long plane rides, so I'm looking forward to spending a lot of quality time with Clannad... except that I'm traveling with my parents, so I might get judged a bit if I read a VN the whole time on the plane. Well, whatever.

Finally finished Majikoi with the agave route.

It's a feel good, light-hearted VN. 6/10. I feel I should give it a higher rating, but it didn't really affect me much emotionally, nor did it engross me completely. I like it, but it could have been more..

Spoilers regarding end (agave route):

  • So am I right in understanding that everything started because of Yuki? They could have expanded on her so much more.
  • Itagaki sisters could have so much more story on them.
  • Finale between Yamato and Aoi was disappointing, the tactician vs a genius.  The finale should have been a battle of wits, which some may argue it was, but hardly so.. Momoyo's route was a much better battle of wits when he was commanding his army.

I suppose they could have made the agave route longer to fit all this additional stuff.

What is Majikoi S about? Does it continue everyone's story?

Got the Hatsune ending in Cartagra, gg rekt me, based on Down's walkthrough there is a Kazuna route (so yay), but I'm a just a big dumby dumb and so I'm waltzing right into these other ends

 

Hatsune was.. cute? Though, I still view Shugo x Hatsune as protective guardian & child rather than lovers. I mean, he bought her a kid's rabbit storybook :P

 

Didn't like how he spent 90% of the end mulling around in regret "did I make the right choice" though, should've had him commit to his choice from the start and just showed him convincing Hatsune and then pan over to their daughter Sakura rather than showing him qqing about how Toji went missing and losing contact with Kazuna, we'll get to those routes soon anyway writers, don't need to waste dialogue on that!@#

Debating on whether to go all other ends first or to make a break for Kazuna / normal end

reading kana imouto, so far it's really good but the translations is atrocious, there are many times when they don't translate what the characters are saying others the translations is not accurate at all, they don't use the names properly, not honorifics, it's a pain to read
