Looking for a Wholesome Romance...


Recommended Posts

Hello, I was wondering if anybody could give me some solid recommendations for wholesome romance VNs. I've played through many already such as:

If My Heart Had Wings,



Princess Evangile (and its fandisc)


Hoshizora no Memoria,

Katawa Shoujo,

Majikoi (and its fandisc),


Hatsukoi 1/1

Noble Works  

Saku Saku


Yeah I know a few of said VNs aren't really "wholesome" but they do the romance part generally well. Or they fulfill the Romantic comedy part fairly well. (Oh and I do have the Grisaia no Kajitsu series completed)


Thanks in advance!

You should check out My Sweetest Monster or Crimson Gray, nothing but wholesome fun as far as the eye can see.

You underestimate me, I recently watched a playthrough of Crimson Gray and have seen enough of my sweetest monster to just say no. Lol, I think this has gotten out of hand.

I'm no VN expert, but I really felt the purity and wholesomeness from Nagisa in CLANNAD and associated followups. Awesome happy family vibes, made me miss dating a girl with good parents.

Yeah I agree it was wholesome but I watched the anime and its after story and I never felt so broken on the inside, mainly because of the after story....

I think you could count Fureraba here, it's a comedy, but generally a fun and lighthearted romance. How I missed that already being listed? Anyways, I guess I can recommend some yuri? Kindred Spirits, Lonely Yuri and Highway Blossoms are all very wholesome, romantic games, but obviously quite different from a typical moege. 

If you don't mind EVNs, Ace Academy and Crystalline (warning - only one love interest) are extremely wholesome.

Ugh. It's a little difficult to recommend stuff when TC has already read most of the stuff I would have recommended (I only tend to recommend stuff I've actually read)...

Also, define "wholesome".

DS Dal Segno . Has some light fantasy elements.

ef - a fairy tale of the two . Various kinds of relationship drama (with comedy here and there). Packs some major emotional punch later on too...

Symphonic Rain . Maybe not quite what you're looking for. But has some well written characters, with some twists thrown in.

By wholesome I mean a romance love story that generally doesn't have terrible routes and each route feels very lighthearted(Maybe that's the word I should have used). I also appreciate when a VN has a decent epilogue ( AKA Hoshizora no memoria). Overall it's basically a way of saying I am looking for a romance that doesn't feel entirely forced, flows well, and would make a reader feel warm inside at certain parts(Once again Hoshimemo epilogue). For a better description of what I mean, you could check out Clephas' post above. 


Oh and thanks for the suggestions, currently buying D.S. Dal Segno!
