A General Approaches

Recommended Posts

Welp. I guess this is where I get to be self-absorbed and talk all about myself.

 

     Hello there, everyone! I'm Andy. I'm a 20 year old male living in America. I'm not really good at these things because I have ADHD and I tend to get out of place, disorganized, and yeah. So I'll try to keep this on track.

 

    I'm signing up here because I've recently run into a small addiction, you might say. I've always been a lovey-dovey kinda guy. But recently, I've taken a much more serious plunge into the depths of romance and love. It's gotten to the point where I can only watch Romance/Drama Anime's. And due to my age, I tend to favor School Life anime.

 

    My first and only Visual Novel was Katawa Shoujo. And as you all might or might not know, it's completely free and already subbed in English. Since I played that, I've been craving a more... well... sexually active?... Visual Novel. Some might call that eroge, some refer to it as a "hentai visual novel". I'm sure I can find that here, in multitude. But I also enjoy meeting fun new people to share experiences and/or opinions with.

 

Self-absorbed section has ended.

 

    I hope I get to meet a lot of you awesome people and as my first official thread here, I'd like to take the chance to request anyone's help here, linking me to some English-patched Visual Novels/Eroge's that they enjoyed! I'm not exactly experienced with torrents or anything so... Hopefully I can figure out how to fit in here!

 

If you have read this entire thing... Arigato! <3 

 

Side Note: Graphics

 

   I just felt I should let everyone know! I'm a graphic designer, and I make Forum Signatures, avatars, userbars (If people in this age even still use those), and other social media art like Twitter Backgrounds, headers, facebook profile/cover photo's, etc. for free! I'm not a professional, nor do I have a degree. But if you would be interested, feel free to PM me! I'm always up to some art. :D And if you want to look at some of the art I made, I can show you examples as well.

Welcome to the forums! Hope you enjoy your stay!

You should make a list over at http://vndb.org/  to keep track of which VNs you've read, it also making giving recommendations much easier. :)

If you're into school romance then Key is the company for you - pretty much everything they make is high school romance. Clannad should be the first you try, and you can follow that up with Little Busters, Kanon, or Rewrite, whichever seems the most interesting to you.

Anyone who likes Kumin-Sempai is ok with me :)

 

Welcome to Fuwanovel

 

I have been waiting for so long for the 2nd season to finish airing so I can watch it. (I prefer to watch them in one go so next week I will finish season 2!) But Kumin-sempai is my favorite character of that anime. She's so innocently serene; it's unbearable. <3 Also, thank you!

 

And, thank you FruitsPunchSamurai!

 

Flutterz, you just made my night! I will get started immediately! I'm not sure if I can handle Clannad... the anime caused me to cry for the first time (over a media source) in 10 years. Thank you so much!

 

Thank you MrAldred! And I'd be honored. =D

Happy to help! In that case I guess you know what to expect from Key's other works. ;)

Can you tell me without spoiling anything if the Visual Novel of Clannad is basically just the anime in a clickable version? Or are there differences? Because, in all honestly; If it's just that, I don't think I'll play it. However if there are some noticeably large differences between the Anime and Visual Novel, perhaps I can force myself.

The anime has most of the stuff that is in the VN, although there's a couple of routes the VN has that the anime doesn't, as well as the obvious difference that every girl's route is more romantic in nature, although the VN is all-ages. To be honest you won't be missing that much if you've seen the anime, but you should definitely read it at some point.

On that note. Just based off the fact that you said "every girl's route" means that unlike the anime only having 1 episode for a Tomoyo Arc and 1 episode for a Kyou Arc.... your statement implies there is a route for EACH girl, including Kotomi, Ryou, and dare I stretch this far; Yukine?

 

As far as the more romantic area, would it be safe to say there is at least kissing? Because honestly. You didn't see much of that, even, in the anime.

Yup: Kyou, Ryou, Tomoyo, Kotomi, Yukine, Fuuko, and even Misae, off the top of my head, as well as a route for a character that doesn't appear in the anime at all. Clannad is really an outlier in this sense - I don't think there's any other translated VN that has so many routes, although the actual events that happen during the routes are pretty much all there in the anime.

It's been a while since I've read it, but there are a few kiss CGs if I remember correctly, not very many though.

Well you've gone and made my night. ^_^ Admittedly, I have been singing the piano version of the Dango song for nearly a week now. 

 

I'll definitely start with Clannad then! Time for the ClannadFeels v2! YOSH!

By the way, have you seen any of the other Key anime adaptations: Kanon, Air, Little Busters, or Angel Beats? Although that last one is actually the opposite - they're making a VN based on the anime instead of the other way around.

 

Oh, and just a heads-up, Clannad is REALLY long, expect to spend at least 80 hours on it. :P

Nope! None of the above. However multiple people have told me about Angel Beats, and told me to watch it. So I was thinking about it.

 

In all honesty, I have one VN that I am dying to get but I don't think there's an English Patch for it anywhere.

Perhaps you have any idea? http://unisonshift.amuse-c.jp/products/project26/main.html

Welcome on the forums.

We are happy to have you here !

If you like School life type of anime you'll surely like KEY's Visual novels like for example :"Clannad" (Read this one !)

It has no hentai but it's an awesome read.

I may need your skill if you stick around the forums >:3

Thank you! I appreciate it. And yes, I am indefinitely going to read Clannad after already seeing the Anime.

Saying it has no hentai, perhaps you could give me a few names in that direction?

 

As for the graphics, by all means! Let me know! :D

 

Also a thank you to Boomer, Kynbound, and Getter!

Welcome to the forums! I'll throw Little Busters! in the bundle of games you should play, it's really good! Clannad is amazing too, you won't regret playing it even if you already watched the anime. Enjoy your stay and have fun!

By the way, there's a topic somewhere about graphics, you should check it out if you feel like it!

We happily welcome you with open arms!  :D

 

My suggestion; before you watch an anime look for whether or not it's based off a VN, then play that instead. Watching Fate/Stay Night before playing kinda ruined the experience for me. See you around!

 

I figure it's kind of like recommending someone to read the book before watching the movie. Same idea, just anime-ified. Lol. Thanks for the tip, though! And thank you for accepting me! ^^

 

Welcome to the forums...

 

All my VN recommendations go out to Katahane (if you don't mind the Yuri)...

 

On the contrary! BRING ON ALL THE YURI! <333 And thank you for the suggestion and warm welcome!

Thank you for the welcome, and yes I am sure I'll love the VN for Clannad just as much as the anime.

 

As for the graphics. I may just have to do that. ;o

Also a thank you to Monkeys and Tom for welcoming me!
