Why is life so complicated?
Maybe, so?


Do they really look that skinny? I didn't notice.


I'm another anon, and I'm Russian. I haven't played eng version of this game, so I have no idea how translation turned out to be. But I think this game is mostly for Russians, cuz it gives some memories from the past, and also Russian atmosphere is not for everyone, but I really enjoyed it. If you have time then you should definitely give it a try. Story is good but nothing really unique or spesial, it has fast pace in the start and the end, but for the most part 80% their's just ¨chilling¨ at the summer camp. Only real issue with this game is variety and size of the game, just remember that it's a game that some rus anons made.

Sorry for bad English (sorry for bad english)


>Has anyone played Neko Paradise yet? I'm thinking about buying it.

Its bad. The art is cute but the actual VN is so "manufactured" its abysmal


Was Kanon given an American release or something?
I played it recently and enjoyed it.

Haven't played Saya no uta yet, but I'm going to give it a try since everyone in this thread seems to love it. Hopefully it's not too difficult to understand because I'll be reading it in Japanese.


Its not an easy vn because of the medical lingo somewhat advanced grammar and lines of gibberish text


It's a lot harder than your average VN. If you have the patience and it's not your very first VN though, I recommend it. I read it as my fourth VN and my Japanese improved greatly from the trial by fire.

I'm halfway through Chuusotsu now and since the translation Kikestarter is going to be funded, I need to tell you guys that Chuusotsu is anti-neet propaganda so that's something to keep in mind in case any of you have/were thinking of backing it. The writing and characters are good and it's fairly interesting but as a wizard NEET I'm not enjoying it. And I'm not sure who it's meant to appeal to because it's not something normies would like at all either.

Which sucks because I greatly enjoyed Hiruou's previous work, JQV, and Suicide Fence still looks interesting.


I don't consider this much of a spoiler, but hidden in case you want to be surprised by the themes of the game. I thought it was heading in that direction, but it turns out to be more anti wage slavery. It's not pro-NEET, but it argues that NEETism is an unfortunate condition caused by wage slavery. The "villains" of the game are NEET haters and and the heroes are NEETs.


How do you guys read all these things? do you all know jap? Because only a minority of them are translated.

For example I would like to play >>23241 but I'm sure it's nor translated.


wat?? learn japp just to play silly porno games? are you kiddin me?? why wuld i waist my time doing dat just use machine translation like ebberybubby else it is barely intelligible but it works for me! sure beats having to memorize all dose stoopid squiggles

or you can sit on your ass for 2-7, 10+ or never years waiting on people to translate it badly for you


You don't need to mock anyone.


I only read Visual Novels since they're a good learning tool for Japanese. I would never touch a translation, as I've heard they're all poorly translated + rewritten.
It really isn't that hard to learn enough Japanese to play these games though.


There's no need to be like that asshole I learned spanish to watch TV dramas FFS it's not that weird


I was taking the role of the person who says things like that. Those are things I see people say a lot on this topic. I don't agree with that at all. I am quite bothered by it. The way to go is of course to actually learn the language and not be dependent on text hookers or machine translation.


Well if that's the case ignore what i said here >>23241. Goes to show you have to finish something before you judge it.


I know a lot of you will probably shit on me for this but I really hope VNs eventually become more popular. That means more of them will be translated to English at a faster rate.


whats everyone been playing lately?


Played Lonely Yuri, as suggested ITT.
I probably like yuri more than I'd be willing to admit, even anonymously. I don't know of many yVNs, though.


Where can I get Tsukihime? Nothing on Nyaa and googling only gives me shady websites.


My favorite one by far is Steins;Gate no contest. S;G 0 was pretty decent, Fate is alright. I'm currently playing Chaos;Child which was just released locally in NA region. It's actually really comfy so far, despite being kinda dark at times. I have high hopes for it.


to this day all ive completed was katawa shoujo when it first came out

i would like to play more different ones but never bothered looking

i always bumpsave this thread to keep it from dying so i can properly start playing vns one day but when that day comes ill never know


which succubus did you pick?


sorry meant to bump


rin, but i got a very bad ending and it made me depressed for a while

i've gone back and re-read several routes on several different occasions over the past decade since I first encountered it, so I'm well aware that it's almost entirely nostalgia value that guides my opinion, but Tsukihime is still my favorite. There's beauty in its shittiness and the resulting ambiance like there is in seeing a band play in a crackhouse basement or listening to old recordings of classical music from before room acoustics and recording technology was really figured out.


yes i think that was it. i couldnt even finish it once i got to that place and saw how bad everything was turning, i just shut it off

I really want to play this,this meta ending seems awesome as fuck.


Too bad I don't know runes….well I guess it's time to try to learn….again.


Is there at least one VN which does not consists of typical anime waifu-like characters, to appeal certain audiences. Like this image >>349 I know that it supposed to be cute, but it disgusts me.


428 封鎖された渋谷で


Kara no Shoujo

Otoko Dogeza Jigoku


It disgusts you because michiru is objectively the worst succubus.

>michiru is objectively the worst succubus


I truly think that Taiichi is one of the most upstanding characters I've seen written. His self sacrifice was deeply moving. His character really shows that CC has a much deeper literary thought put into it than most writing.


G-Senjou no Maou

I'm playing Chaos Child on Vita (pirated,I don't pay for shit)

I'm just getting started,but it's already a lot better than Chaos Head,it's quite a shame that Chaos Child is so full of references to Chaos Head to the point that it may as well be mistaken for a remake,but unfortunately is not,is a sequel,now that I'm talking about it Chaos Head was literally the most boring and dissapointing thing I've ever read,the first 20 minutes are fantastic,then it goes downhill for hours with the stupid,unlikeable protagonist that does absolutely nothing interesting for entire chapters,then it gets interesting for a little and it ends,it was the only VN I had to use willpower to finish,because I was getting sleepy everytime I tried to read such boring shit.

Anyway Chaos Child is interesting and keeps up the pace quite well,the protagonist is like a carbon copy of the protagonist of Chaos Head (to the point that both of them are addressed as "Taku") but without the NEET-ness and general mediocrity of the Chaos Head protag.

Anyway,good VN for now,I hope it doesn't end like C:H 2.0…


anything new that was fun? i haven't touched visual novels for quite a while so things from the past 3 years would be new for me


What are some good visual novels to play in spring/summertime?


File: 1553120610324.jpg (99 KB, 600x450, 4:3, 1494595512001.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

Not sure if you want translated or untranslated but off the top of my head


>水月 -すいげつ-
>Pure Mail
>ALMA ~ずっとそばに…~

All spring/summer setting IIRC and many taking place during summer vacation.

Great horror/murder mystery with a bunch of SoL in the countryside during the summer.
Also lots of higurashi.


Wow. I remember making this post a long time ago.
I also remember when I first played SnU.
I couldn't stop jerking off


If you're into more hardcore fetishes, Euphoria is really good.
It has a story the anime-version couldn't hold up to.


Everlasting Summer is literally about summer.


Nice dude.


it's a soviet vn though…


Just finished Muv Luv. Don't listen to the people who say you HAVE to read unlimited/extra before Alternative.


Don't listen to this person, muv luv must be played fully to be enjoyed.

Garbage advice. Half the reason Alternative was impactful was that you you had poured dozens of hours into Extra/Unlimited and really knew the characters and had become attached to them.
