NowItsAngeTime Posted August 30, 2019 Share Posted August 30, 2019 Outside the more direct things like being entertained or having a waifu/husbando or whatever. It can be positive or negative influences. So I've been thinking of why I have such a high attachment to VNs as a whole compared to others. Thinking all the things I got and accomplished through VNs made me realize how much VNs affected my life: A lot of my online voice chat experience has been through online visual novel fans My closest online group of friends was through VNs, sometimes I talk to them more than my IRL friends through voice chat In general these days, the discords I mostly hang around are VN-related and the ones I'm active in go at the right speed in terms of activity for me. Visual Novels have become the major reason I even go to Anime Convention these days (mostly Anime Expo since I live an hour away). Meeting at least 1 new person at an anime con that has VN stuff has become a personal goal of mine. Speaking of which, rooming with fellow VN fans/industry people at a hotel for a con was something I did was really cool And meeting someone who I can actually cosplay VN characters is something I never thought would happen. I'm not usually a big cosplayer. I've even done my own visual novel panel at smaller conventions before. I've never done a panel at a con otherwise. I've been a major cohost (and not just a guest) of a podcast through VNs, something I never thought I'd ever actually do Visual Novels have become around half (if not more) the reason and inspiration for me actually studying Japanese. 1 year so far and still going strong. I've been on a (fan)TL project as QC (Konosora Retranslation). Never thought I'd be on a project like that for anything. Of course on the other hand... My attachment to 2D porn has probably increased due to VNs (though some may view this as good) I've kinda started comparing other media to how well VNs do certain things I know have more reasons/excuses to stay inside my house, especially with how long VNs are.
