Nukige x Nakige Discussion


Recommended Posts

Its a bit unique feel when a Hard Nukige thus far suddenly turns into a Heavy Nakige (- _ - ; )

Nakige is best known for character development by making characters go through difficult situations. The characters solve their problems, together, even though sometimes, they themselves are responsible for their depressing lifestyle and poor relations, like in this game (https://vndb.org/v18734), the male protagonist casually left adult magazines piled up in the living room of his house, which caused friction between him and his family. He often claimed himself as healthy young man as excuse for everything but ignored what others had to say entirely, yet, blamed others for not understanding his feelings. 

He also openly hurted his elder sister's feelings who later on revealed that she loved him too much, forgave all his unforgivable misdeeds, even though she personally suffered most of them (as they lived together), and made clear to him that she was going to die silently as single if he never paid attention to her....

Initially, Her attitude was very cold towards him but, that was mostly because he only thought of himself, but never about her and his future. The MC even mentioned mid-game that only because of her strict guidance at home, even though he used to sleep inside his classroom every day at school and almost never self-studied at all, yet, somehow managed to clear class tests with above passing marks.... clearly, a blatant waste of potential. 

He could have used the guidance his studious sister provided as as an opportunity to earn respect he desired so much and, to improve his family relations. But he didn't, for the maximum part of story and as result, felt lonely and depressed outside as well as even inside his home....


To all those tsun-tsun heroines and heroes (who i mistook as villains for a long time) forced to use hard measures to make their loved ones seriously improve their social awareness, fulfill their responsibilities properly and, to finally change their donkan/hetare attitude for good, respect :) 

Comments/suggestions are appreciated.

Happy ending or not?

S*xless salaryman ending (quite realist and fitting for Modern Japan but not quite what one expects from so looong nukige) There ought to be some way to choose VN with longer endings (Like Grisaia)

If the ending isn't happy, it isn't a nakige.  By definition, a nakige exists to make you cry then salvage the situation into a happy ending.  If the ending isn't happy, it is an utsuge.

(Though there are nakige with deaths too.) https://vndb.org/g693

Terminal illness or something??! nOOOO!!! In the beginning i made THE blunder.... of playing Dangan Ronpa https://vndb.org/v7014 (thought it as another casual survival game where after some melodrama, the MC escapes with his destined heroine/harem)

The only thing that's both a Nakige and a Nukige at the same time is Wanko to Kurasou

Occasional Nakige+Occasional Nukige may be the right term for it.

No harem ending though (- _ - ; )
