yeah, Not a such of masterpieces, Just a common moege VN. but I really enjoy it (although their length a little bit too short, I think ), some of their on purpose mistranslation frustrating me, but its make funny on their ways.  well,  that's the second translation of herosoft into our language (indonesian),  so at least I want to read it until the end. 

I hope can be better at next translation project . :vinty:

If anything one of the translation was looks nostalgic to me in all of wrong way, and also make me understand of why some people was dislike whenever suffix '-san' translated as Mr/Ms/Mrs. As for the text, other than funny translation things actually it have quite a lot of typo, but it's not like it was not understandable anyway so I'll let that slide.

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

I have no idea what any of that was actually saying because your posts are difficult to read sometimes. But please don't assault or sexually harass your coworkers, that's not cool.

Playing Lise's route in Symphonic Rain.....

  Reveal hidden contents

That CG of Grave pointing that cane across Lise's throat ...... that sent a chill down my spine.

Also imagining how traumatizing that type of "discipline" would be was enough to make me shed a few tears.

 

Yeah, that was one of the more uncomfortable scenes I've read yet...

Sigh...yeah that route will really get you down. Her song still effects me to this day.

So I finished playing Magical Eyes -Red is for anguish- tonight and I really liked it. It started off a little janky but it I really got caught up in it as the story went on. The mystery was quite interesting and very different than what I am used to. I'm definitely looking forward to playing the sequel when it comes out. I guess after this I should try getting back to Seabed.

Oh and one thing that Magical Eyes has going for it is a really great intro video

I've resumed playing Little Busters and started reading my first ever otome vn, Code Realize. I swear I have this bad habit of resuming stalled vns or picking up new ones even though I still have unfinished ones :amane:

Which means that now I am reading 5 vns at the same time: Little Busters, Code Realize, Grisaia Phantom Trigger, The House in Fata Morgana and Hoshizora no Memoria.

I've come back to Katawa Shoujo on a whim, having listened to bits of the soundtrack and thus remembering how much fun I had with it. I'm doing the Emi route now and having a lot of fun - I'd forgotten just how good it is at sucking you in and making you want to find out what happens next. Plus it's a really soothing and easy read, too, and i find that while I like more convoluted and "hit you in the feels" type stories a la Fate/Stay Night, sometimes I just want to kick back, relax, and not worry too much. But yes, I'm really liking this read-through, and kind of wishing I'd not left it for so late. The thing too is I can't get past how good it is for a free VN - even having read several paid VNs (and quality ones at that) it still manages to hold its own very well, and it manages to nail some things others don't, like bringing back the background that was present when you rewind, loading and exiting extremely quickly, and having a fantastic soundtrack. 

I'm hoping to read something that's more on the dense, "feels-y" side after this, but I'm definitely enjoying my time with this and the sad part is now I'll only have the Rin route that I haven't yet read I'm not so sure if I'll like it much or not.

Yeah I was  too invested in Visual Novels at the time to be pulled into the Katawa Shoujo hype machine but I did appreciate what a good time I had with it. Katawa Shoujo was a excellent starting point for many into exploring the genre at large.

Oh I'm playing Aoishiro right now and I think it's pretty good so far.  Their mouths move when they talk, it's all pretty incredible.

Symphonic Rain completed.

Had a really, really slow build up, but I'm glad I kept at it. Had some interesting characters (compared to standard moege chars, Symphonic Rain's chars were more realistic, and had more depth).

Spoiler

Falsita's heel turn reveal is still one of the most surprising moments I've ever read. Torta, and her labyrinth of secrets was interesting too.

The music was good too.

 

Wonder what I'll read next...

Currently I am playing Da Capo. I choose this game because I think it is not too light and not too heavy. Hope it doesn't disappoint, after certain game make me disappointed. 

Apparently Dal Segno is one of the best in that series and it made me want to die, so good luck with Da Capo.

I'm currently working through The Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya. I bought it since it was the first VN available on the Switch and I wanted to support VNs on the system but....this game is not good :( I am convinced no one bothered to edit or proofread anything considering there are many, many typos that distract from reading as well as other errors like having the wrong characters name there and suddenly seeing untranslated text. I've completed four characters and have two left; I highly doubt the quality for those two is going to be any better.

Finished the Utawarerumono trilogy. Despite the pacing issues (either the war portions are too short or the slice-of-life portions are too long), i found it a solid series with fairly consistent quality. Unlike most people i found the first one the best, because as war-filled as the third one was, i didn't feel tension like i did with the first one and the battles before the true final boss felt too much like typical JRPG storytelling (true final boss itself was the highlight of the series for me though).

Finally started Muv-Luv Extra. I'm like 3-4 hours in and nothing happened, but of course I already knew beforehand how this one goes and wasn't expecting anything interesting to happen in the first place :leecher: The slice of life and humor is not half as bad as the cringey harem tropes. That is the one thing that really puts me off, but oh well, I'm a patient man and I'll have faith in my perseverence being eventually rewarded :makina: 

One thing that really keeps me motivated is Alternative's opening. It's epic af. Can't wait to read that.

Extra initially makes you take all the little things for granted and complain about all the cliches, Unlimited completely changes the atmosphere and Alternative just breaks you apart. You'll definitely be rewarded...with PTSD, that is. :wahaha:

Well then, with some dedication today I polished off MuvLuv Extra's Sumika's route. I'm told that getting Meiya's ending will not take more than one more hour since both routes only diverge at the very end... and oh, I'm so glad to hear that :leecher:

As for the other routes, I'm planning on playing Ayamine's because I read that it contains some important characterization (plus to be honest she's probably my fav girl of the cast; kinda reminds me of Rin from Katawa Shoujo). Tama I dunno, I might read it, but as of now what I'm planning on skipping are Chizuru's and Marimo's routes, unless any of you strongly advice me otherwise.

The routes for Sumika and Meiya absolutely need to be played in order to fully enjoy Alternative. Miki's route and Ayamine's route do not have much bearing on Alternative, though they do provide some background info for 2 side characters in Alternative (Sagiri,Miki's dad). The other routes are just unnecessary.

Since you will be moving on to Unlimited, I recommend playing just one route for one of the students (I chose Meiya since she's my fav along with Sumika). Yuuko's route is optional.

As for Alternative, route choice doesn't really matter.

The only not main route I completed is Ayamine, and, to be honest, it's simply bad, at least for my taste, and the fact that I read it before any other route may be one of the reasons why I dislike Extra. :yumiko: But, yeah, apparently, it's the most important side route, so I'd recommend at least trying to read it.

Marimo's route, from what I understand, basically consists of one comedic h-scene. Tama's route matters somewhat, but definitely less than Ayamine's. I read one of the normal ends, which, apparently, has the same start as her route but basically ends right after that.

The only people I heard of who finished Chizuru's route are the localization team. :sachi:

Half-way through Danganronpa. The story is pretty intriguing, but I have to say that some of the mini-games in the trials have annoyingly vague and misleading phrasing and answers.  Maybe it's a translation issue, or maybe it's because I'm playing the hardest difficulty.  Many times I would know the answer to a specific part in a trial, but it took me several tries to figure out how to "communicate" it to the game through it's vague-ass answers.  

Also, while I thought the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th trials were good (that's as far as I am), I thought the 1st trial was pretty crappy:

Spoiler

The final clue in the first trial made no sense. How would they be able to tell that Leon used his screwdriver in order to open the door, just by looking at his screwdriver? This wasn't explained. Instead Leon just gave up the moment they mentioned this possibility, as if it is beyond the shadow of a doubt that you can tell if a screwdriver has been recently used??? Note that they didn't mention the toolkit being a clue, it was specifically the screwdriver. Another weird thing about the first trial was the very obvious backwards "Leon" written on the wall, which was way to obvious.  Especially when you compare it to the second and fourth trials (just finished the fourth), which I thought were much more solid and harder to predict.

Despite my complaints I am enjoying the game overall.
