JP romance VN's where atmosphere is somber or serious?


Recommended Posts

Been looking for VN's to add to my read order. I really get sick fast of extremely light romcoms that are a dime a dozen today. I mean if they're well made, I read them but its so hard for me to find something that's well made and like that. 

But a somber or serious romance even if it's just an 8/10, i enjoy it a lot. Something like Aonatsu Line. By specifics on what I mean by the atmosphere, im not saying its deadly serious. I mean something like the setting doesn't really require you to suspend your disbelief, or something like suddenly a transfer student comes in and she introduces herself and she knows you and the class goes what?!?!?!, lucky bastard. Its so far away from normal human beings act that I get annoyed. 

Something like the following:

White Album 2( This is the perfect example of an atmosphere of a VN I am particularly looking for)

Kimi no Nagori, Natsu no Ame, Steins;Gate 0( yes this is not a romcom but the atmosphere im thinking of is something like that, its a serious and somber atmosphere ), Aonatsu Line

ef, although it may not be so obvious in the first route.

Symphonic Rain

Aster

Himanatsu (the lightest of the bunch but not quite moege)

Koinaku

Shinikiss

Yosuga no Sora (similar to Natsu no Ame since same director and related brand)

 

Not sure about suspending disbelief though, some of these have a few supernatural elements.

Thanks, adding some of them to my wishlist. Its fine for there to be supernatural though as long as its well made and fits in the story well

I realized I haven't played many romance-focused vns.  Some obscure titles, but here we go:

Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no (main branch routes)

Hateshinaku Aoi, Kono Sora no Shita de (pretty somber mood)

Noel (Serious yuri, though it only takes up about 40% of the story)

Based on the cg, is there ntr on Hateshinaku Aoi
