Hey Everyone! What's up? I'm Glorious Showoff, and I'm glad to finally be taking part of Fuwa. Spurred on by a good old buddy by the name of KosakiFag, I look forward to posting on here.

For the past year, I've been taking an extreme interest to visual novels, and even go as far as to prefer them from a majority of anime (visual novels are just better as a whole)

I've read titles such as 0verflows's School/Shiny Days HQ, Spike Chunsoft's Super Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Key's Clannad (still have yet to finish though), and Nitro+'s Saya no Uta.

I'm also a really huge fan of the titles that Alicesoft produces, even if a lot of their games still have yet to be translated in English, I'm extremely fond of them. The Rance Series as a whole is absolutely awe inspiring, as I've played through Sengoku Rance, Rance 02, Rance III, and currently playing Kichikuou Rance. Other Alicesoft Titles I have played are Mamatoto, Beat Blades Haruka, Toushin Toshi II, Daiakuji, Daiteikoku, Only You: Re Cross, and Prostudent Good (though, the last four have yet to be translated)  they've all got something extremely fun and addicting to look forward too.

While I love the Rance Series for what it is, my absolute favorite Alicesoft title (and visual novel of all time actually) would have to be Daibanchou: Big Bang Age. While I say that it is a masterpiece, and my favorite vn and game ever, I wouldn't consider it perfect, and it's got some flaws, however if you can look past the flaws, it's many ups heavily outshine it. I've made such a pact with Daibanchou, that even highly ranked titles like Steins;Gate, Fate/Stay Night, or Muv-Luv Alternative wouldn't be able to top it as my number one favorite in my book. It's a title that plays a lot like Sengoku Rance, only just more difficult, so much so that you'd most likely have to use a guide if you want to fully understand the games mechanics. I would highly recommend playing it, while admittedly, the overall story is a bit weaker than Rance's (though that's not a fair comparison, considering Rance has a rich, expansive ass lore that spans over ten different games, hardly any other vn's individual story can top it in my opinion) even so, Daibanchou has a great cast of iconic characters to immerse yourself and become attached to. A lot of them fall into classic, nostalgic, stereotypes and it's portrayed in such a memorable way that it's quite a damn joy to see! Especially if you have what it takes to see them fully get fleshed out (there are multiple events each character has that the player has to unlock as playing through the game, I consider the many characters to be the games main highlight), it also features a legendary soundtrack of pure badassery (especially the opening theme), and a fun, difficult, but rewarding gameplay to look forward to, it was also my first Alicesoft title.

I'm looking forward to playing others such as more Alicesoft titles that have yet to be localized (Hype for Evenicle and Rance Quest Magnum coming soon!), The Fruit of Grisaia, Katawa Shoujo, Rewrite and much more! I'm currently playing the Muv-Luv series, and now am on Muv-Luv Unlimited. I hear that Muv-Luv Alternative is supposed to be one of the greatest visual novels ever made, and it definitely looks like it, so I can't wait to try it out!

Welcome to Fuwanovel, and I'd already saw you on both of Youtube and Alice Soft wiki - great that you finally made an account here. As for Daibanchou, yeah I quite like it although to be honest here it's quite a pain if you want to clear all of your character fully - need to use the walkthrough and even then it might be not guaranteed. To each of their own in regard of that I guess, and thanks for reminding me of Daibanchou there. Oh, and I also look forward to Evenicle here considering that I found it quite addictive even though it's still untranslated ie just tried it. Hope you had fun here.

PS - Nice Rouga avatar there by the way.

Welcome on board bro!

I'm also a fan of the rance series, though I only played rance 6 so far. And have to wait for the other titles to be localized.

Enjoy your stay!

There are a whole bunch of Rance titles that are fan translated, don't count on everything pre-Rance 5D to be localized though, since they're too old. Everything Rance related pre-5D (besides the 01 and 03 remakes) have been fan translated, so you can easily read those. Sengoku Rance (the seventh game in the series) has also been fan translated for years, so you can already get a head start on playing that unless you want to play it officially localized that is.

Pretty cool! I think I've seen you in a few Youtube comments, especially on my video "Every Version of My Glorious Days", thanks for that btw. (: Let me know how you do in Daibanchou!

This is  off topic but I need that Dmmd fanart, where did ya' find? it's so C00T.

You can find practically any type of Alicesoft fanart art on the Haniho Booru. http://haniho.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=list

If you want more of the same character then you have to know their name of course, and click on their tag, either that, or search them up, make sure you are typing their name correctly though, or you won't get anything.

Don't mind for officially or fan translations really. I tried to find a patch for rance 03 remake but didn't find any.

I was actually talking about the fanart MaggieROBOT used as a profile pic (Dmmd=DRAMAtical Murder) but wow! while I still need to take a look at some Alicesoft titles (Like the already mentioned Dainbachou) it's good to know a place to see gud fanart. Thanks purrson! (Yeah cat pun 'cause why not?)
