Looking for something that will keep me engaged

Recommended Posts

I've recently tried reading a couple moeges but the lack of drama is making it hard to stay interested.

I'm wondering if you guys got anything that can keep me hooked sort of like Key's stuff or Sharin no Kuni. I'm fine with anything as long as its been translated into English.

Princess Evangile . For a typical moege, it manages to have more drama then most.

To Heart 2 . I was recently in the same VN slump (getting turned off VNs by a lack of drama). Then I got hooked on this VN. Pretty light hearted, but has plenty of comedic drama (and sometimes actual drama on certain routes).

Sorcery Jokers . Probably a good introduction to the Chuuni genre. Lots of fight scenes. This is basically a cyberpunk Final Fantasy in VN form.

G-senjou no Maou . You will NOT get bored reading this crime thriller. Made by the same people from Sharin no Kuni.

Grisaia no Kajitsu . Has a larger then life cast, and tons of humor in the common route (the common route is very long and almost outstays it's welcome). Character routes have plenty of drama (and emotional punch, and dark themes). I've heard people compare this to Sharin no Kuni too....

ef - a fairytale of the two . The first half is basically love triangle drama. The drama only manages to get more intense from there (has some dark themes too).

* Muv-Luv Trilogy. Set aside a month of two in advance. Muv-Luv Extra is a fluffy comedic drama (character routes are weak though). Muv-Luv Unlimited changes the setting, and adds a lot of intrigue. Then comes Muv-Luv Alternative ....... which is absolutely loaded with drama, action, and emotional feels.

Eden* They Were Only Two On The Planet: A romance kinetic novel that's not afraid to kill off key characters.  Drama is certainly the name of the game for this one. https://vndb.org/v1286

Zero Escape 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors: A vn/puzzle game hybrid.  Nine people trapped on a sinking ship have nine hours to escape.  https://vndb.org/v3112

Corpse Party Blood Covered: A vn/adventure game hybrid.  A group of high school students get trapped in an elementary school that was supposedly demolished long ago.  A must read for any horror fan and a must avoid for anyone else.  No seriously, if you don't do horror this is not the place to start.  https://vndb.org/v2632

Also, I know that multiple people have already said this but...

Grisaia no Kajitsu: You really can't go wrong with this one.  Genuinely the only vn I've read that's over 30 hours long that has enough interesting content to justify its insane length.  That said, it's getting a Switch release later this year (I believe it's scheduled for November 7th) so if you have a Switch it's probably worth waiting until then.  https://vndb.org/v5154

So in addition to what everyone else recommend, I will recommend some more titles.

1. Root Double Before Days After Crime 

2. Himawari

3. Subahibi if you like really dark stories that make your really think, philosophical, mysteries, and pyschologicals then you won't regret it. 

4. Planetarian

5. Steins Gate 

6. Kanon

7. Air

8. Little Busters

Ever 17 will certainly keep you engaged. Keep in mind that spoilers will ruin the entire experience so do a blind playthrough and take care when searching for any info about this specific VN.
