Hello everyone

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm KioW and I'm French (sorry for my bad english, I'm still learning alone :() and I'm here because I want to know more about visual novels. I'm a totally beginner in visual novels so if you have any recommendations, please tell me ^_^. I don't have really friends with who to share my hobbies and talk because of my social phobia, so feel free to talk to me :) ! I want to improve my english and make friends :Chocola: 

What I like: animes/mangas, japanese culture, dramas, light novels, asian literature (especially japanese and historical literature), music (EDM, electro swing, kawaii music, J-pop, chillout), video games...

I hope I can get along with everyone ^_^

Hello there! Your English really seems fine so far. :)

If you're into J-pop, you might want to check out Kira☆Kira and Deardrops. Traditionally, I would also recommend some free Western VNs, especially Katawa Shoujo, CUPID, Lucid9, One Thousand Lies, Everlasting Summer and Doki Doki Literauture Club. Those could keep you busy for a while. :)

Thank you for your recommendations :D ! 

I know Doki Doki Literature Club is a horror visual novel but I want to play it (Is it really scary ?)

I'm not sure if I would call it scary, it's more about shocking/disturbing the reader with unsettling plot twists and visual gimmicks. It's a bit depressing, but I really liked it. :)

Sup dude. Your English is good, and your sentence structure is fine. No problems there.

Some of my visual novel recommendations.....

Katawa Shoujo . It's free, and is pretty well written.

Kono Oozora . Light hearted high school romance, with some drama. Beautiful looking VN. Worth it for some of the later flying scenes. Plz get the fan translation....

Grisaia no Kajitsu . My first VN, and still my favorite. This has shades of almost everything. From slice of life romance comedy (which is VERY good), to some suspenseful darker tales with emotional feels. Highly recommended....

Fureraba . Loads of light hearted comedy here.

Just be sure to install the content restoration patch if you play that game. I would normally not recommend it this strongly, as I personally don't care about sex scenes and the fan patch unlocks those, but it also fixes the very poor-quality translation of the original Steam release.

Or you can try A Sky Full of Stars, it's by the same company and has a similar vibe to it, but the official release was of much better quality (all the porn was also removed in this one, whatever that means to you). :)

Greetings! and welcome to the community! Your English seems alright and presentable, no need to be so hard on yourself :maple:

Anyways my recommendations would be the Fault Milestone  which is one of the best Visual Novels for beginners and a very recent title to boot! The third entry is still under production and delayed :rize:

Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius  Is a free western visual novel with some gameplay aspect, try getting the GOG.com version, its much better than the steam ones since it allows you to carry the installer on any given media storage and install the game in any number of PC that you have.

On a unrelated note, I suggest you head to GOG.com  to get this free wonderful game while it still last, you have 1 more hour i guess before the giveaway expires... Better hurry :mare:

Hope you have fun here! :sachi:

Heya, welcome to the forums and nice to meet you! Good to see another otome game lover! :Chocola:

My favorite is Code:Realize, but for beginners Hakuoki and Cinderella Phenomenon (this one is even free!) are nice and worth a shot too! :mare:

Well, welcome, welcome. ^_^ Oh, and don't worry about your English. It's not like all of us here speak it equally well.

Well, it would be easier to give you concrete recommendations if you specified what exactly you seek from VNs. I guess, I'm going to second the recommendation for Grisaia no Kajitsu, since it's a more beginner-friendly VN, and while I personally wouldn't call it exceptional on itself, it's simply pretty well done. Another VN often mentioned in the recommendation threads for beginners is Ever 17. As for otome games, I only played two of them, but Cinderella Phenomenon is pretty good and I'm definitely going to recommend it.
