I'm Maiagaru, your neighborhood academic


Recommended Posts

Hey hi hello! I go by Maiagaru or Maia Mae and I am your friendly, denpa enthusiast academic, here to share some of my work in sexology with y'all at Fuwanovel.  I have a Bachelor's in Women's and Ethnic Studies (known colloquially as Feminist Theory), and Associates in Mass Media Communications and Dance Choreography... though I'm sure that last one isn't as important here. I'm in the process of getting my Masters in Sexology and my Sex Education Certificate through AASECT. I aspire to receive a PhD in Psycho/Socio-Sexology and finish my career at the Kinsey Institute as a researcher. If none of what I've just said made any sense, feel free to check out my quick and dirty run down on the field of Sexology here at my website.

My goal here at Fuwanovel is to provide you with some of my direct knowledge and work within the field (analyses on nukige visual novels or other story heavy pornographic works - full academic papers available on my website and edited down for casual consumption over here on Fuwa), as well as occasional interviews with people in the visual novel industry and reviews on newly released and upcoming English visual novels.  私の日本語は本当に悪いですよ。ごめんね~❤️

My favorite visual novels include Saya no Uta, the Zero Escape series, Kara no Shoujo (MangaGamer do the third game pls), Euphoria, Maggot Baits, Totono, and Subahibi.

Feel free to hit me up here, through the Fuwanovel discord, or through Twitter @that1denpachick. I'm excited to meet you all!

Welcome to Fuwanovel and sorry for the belated greeting. It's also interesting that you recommended euphoria there despite that it's known as the VN with disturbing contents, although I'm not denying that there's good story beneath the infamy (It also help that the opening song is quite good). Since you also mention Maggot Bait, let me say that I like the opening song of it as well even though I know that it has more disturbing contents compared to euphoria.

By the way, while I may dismiss a lot of nukige, I understand that some of those can have good storyline, or rather some can have blurred the line between porn and storytelling. One of the example is Monster Girl Quest in which while it's categorized as nukige, the story itself is more typical RPG with the MC can avoid as much as sex scenes as possible (In fact I'd suggest to do so because the arts for some sex scenes are not looking good, which is quite ironic seeing that one point of nukige is the visual excitement). Another example is Dohna Dohna in which the storyline is far from sex and sex is only used as the mean to get supply in order to survive the game, although to tell the truth it's kind of blur because it also mean that sex play a lot of role in the game (Not for the story, but instead in regard of gameplay).

Rambling aside, I hope that you'll have fun in here.
