Is Ryuukishi07 finished?

You might know Iwaihime from its manga form, but it's mainly R07's newest game.

But as this news article says, in 10 days since its release it only sold 10 copies.
http://zasshi.news.yahoo.co.jp/article?a=20160210-00010005-otapolz-game
At least that's what the sales counter on its DMM page said. Now the counter seems to be gone from the page, so perhaps it wasn't working properly? Or maybe DMM wanted to hide the shame? The game also got a limited physical release in Toranoana, but most likely didn't sell much there either.

Be it as it may, the users aren't happy about the game. Some comments mentioned in the article
>「高すぎる」
Too expensive.
>「同人ゲームで5,000円は取りすぎ」
5000 yen is too much for a doujin game
>「せめて1,000円なら買ったんだが」
I'd buy it at 1000 yen
>「DMMで一般ゲーは売れない」
Non-H games don't sell on DMM
>「エロなし。期待を裏切られたわ」
No porn, betrayed my expectations
>『竜騎士ゲーは2度とやらない』
I won't every play a game by Ryuukishi again
>「マジでゴミだわ……確実に今年ワースト」
Total trash... definetly this year's worst
「『ひぐらしは奇跡のヒットだったんだな』って改めて感じさせてくれるから、竜騎士の最期を見届けたいやつは買うといい。後悔しても知らんが」
It'll make you once again appreciate how much of a miraculous hit Higurashi was, so people who wan't to witness Ryuukishi's last moments should buy it... don't complain to me if you still regret it though

What do you think about it, /a/?

Also note the last comment. The guy says Higurashi was Ryuukishi's hit. You can tell Japanese are pretty angry with Umineko's ending and consider it shit. One difference from Westerners, I guess.

(I put some effort into this OP, even summarized a Japanese article and translated some comments for you, so reply.)
>>
People need to accept that Umineko is the greatest form of literature in history

Not exactly http://blog.esuteru.com/archives/8504974.html

My friend told me that it seems like some sites (or general category? Hell if I can read this moonspeak) listed it as 1st on sales ranking. To begin with, with the size and price like that it isn't even supposed to be a doujin game at all.

My bad. Seems like we can't trust otaku-related news after all.

That's coming up to the price of a regular game.

>>137432677
Those are 8800 yen.

R07 has some dedicated antis.
I'm not a fan of his works at all, but I doubt it sold 10 copies. It probably sold decently just because of the art alone.

I thought it was charting pretty well.
Also the art is pretty beautiful considering it's a doujin game.
I've heard some pretty shitty things about the writing from twitter, here's Hadler's review:

'If I had to comment on something it would be R07's writing. In one word, clumsy....
One thing that spring out when you read the horror passage is the way he keep trying to make analogies in the clumsiest way for example...
Rest of the time it's been surprisingly really dull so far, there isn't even the usual ridiculous craziness'
(Bear in mind he's only read one hour)
>>
>>137431445
>The guy says Higurashi was Ryuukishi's hit
He's pretty much right, Umineko was good but preachy as fuck and had a bunch of dumb things
>>
>>137431445
I don't really give a shit either way, but thanks for your hard work op.
>>
>>137433440
Hadler-sama is almost never wrong.

>>137433570
I was overstating, it wasn't that hard, I just read an article and typed out some sentences.

>>
>>137433440
>'If I had to comment on something it would be R07's writing. In one word, clumsy....

That's always been R07's flaw, he's not a good writer. His works still have entertainment value on a basic level and that's more than fine.
>>
>>137433785
It's a shame that Iwaihime seems to lack that entertainment factor his works usually have (even Umineko was fun when the meta debates/red-truth-wars were fully utilised).

How did this game come about? Was he commissioned or something? It sounds pretty by-the-book compared to his other stuff.
>>
>>137434028
He was most likely commissioned to do it, the same way he was commissioned to do one of the routes in Rewrite

Yeah, that definitely isn't right. I remember he posted a tweet a while ago which said something about the pshysial version being sold out
>>
>>137431445
Japanese popular opinion is pretty bad. Naruto is an elder god tier show and manga to them, GITS sucks, Cowboy Bebop sucks, your favorite anime is shit, and the best VN of all time is Fate/Stay Night.

Only the dedicated few who are truly great appreciate R07s greatness.

I doubt he will ever top Umineko though.

Umineko is literally the greatest literary achievement in all of human history. It is the sort of work that 100 years after the authors death will be rediscovered and considered classic literature of great importance to world civilization.

The japanese think sales=quality, if naruto sold that much it means it appealed to so many people! That sort of thinking.
They also think of Bebop and GiTS as masterpieces, it's always been that way. It's just that kind of SF doesn't have wide appeal.

I'm sure they think MLA and White album are better than F/SN. Doesn't matter when Muramasa is the best.

I guess it's really true what they say about VNs without H-scenes selling less
>>
>>137431445
Hey thanks for the effort
It's normal that an author can only make one or two hits, you can't be original forever and usually take your best ideas in your first story. Except Higurashi and Umineko, R07 isn't that good.

>Too expensive.
That also says a lot. He's greedy.
>>
>>137435452
Calling other people's opinions shit is what 4chan is all about
>>
R07's writing is awkward but he manages to make games with fleshed out and relatable characters and interesting settings. A lot of the stuff he writes is emotionally charged because of his character focus. Iwaihime lacked all of this so far. The characters are flat and bland as fuck which makes the plot drag because his writing alone can't carry it.

>>137435554
>That also says a lot. He's greedy.
Don't be stupid. R07 doesn't set the price or do anything related to planning, he was just hired by DMM.

>>
>>137435653
>R07 doesn't set the price or do anything related to planning
Says who? Last time I sold a game, I had a chance to lower the price but let the publisher set it high and now I'm whining about the bad reviews. Eventually the creator always has the last say in everything.
>>
>>137435723
I don't know what you're talking about. But when you're hired by a huge company (like DMM) you have very little say. You do what you're contracted to do and you get the fuck out.

DMM itself.
>>
>>137435359
Higanbana was garbage too
>>
>>137436055
It's number on the monthly ranking too. Unless the best selling game on DMM sells 10 copies a month, it's safe to assume it sold way more.
>>
>>137436744
It's the best selling commercial all ages game
And yes DMM probably sell about that much in term of commercial all ages game, the second in the ranking is Elder Scroll Online after all
>>
>>137436055
what the fuck
>>
>>137431445
I loved Higurashi but hated the ending of Umineko and found it to be really slow and repetitive as well. It's not just the Japanese that hated it.
>>
>>137436864
Really?
Having bad word of mouth will kill it, it won't be able to rank for long.
>>
>>137436864
>ranked higher than Angel Beats
>ranked higher than Muv-Luv Alternative

I don't think you're right anon

And besides, how could they even have a top 60 list if number 1 only sold 10 copies?
>>
>>137431445
what is 5000 yen like $2?
>>
>>137437308
Why would those games continue to sell thousands every week? If anything, couple dozens seems more realistic.
>>
>>137437385
Try 50
>>
That's clearly fake, even the shittiest of kusoges sells more than ten copies in ten days
>>
>>137437409
>couple dozens seems more realistic
Exactly, which means that Iwaihime must have sold more than 10 if it's number 1. And Angel Beats was only released a couple of months ago
>>
>>137435393
Umineko is full of shit.

Also FSN > Umineko
>>
>>137437551
>only released
Most games\anime\whatever sell the most during their first week.
>>
>>137437551
Angel Beats probably sold 2-3 copy this week.
People who want to buy it will buy an actual copy, not an overpriced digital copy
>>
>>137433531
Yeah. Higurashi was really preachy too, but Umineko's message was insufferable and Ryukishi couldn't stop throwing it in your face.

Ryukishi is a prime example of why editors are necessary. He keeps spewing repetitive verbiage that's a chore to read.
>>
>>137437620
>People who want to buy it will buy an actual copy, not an overpriced digital copy
Wouldn't the same count for Iwaihime then?
>>
>>137437748
Probably, I didn't say it didn't
For commercial game digital distribution is only a small portion.
What is bad though about iwaihime is that it's a DMM exclusive that got quite a bit of press there, if you compare it to the rerelease of Sayonara wo Oshiete that was a DLsite excluvie released 2 week ago that sold 1000+ it's pretty bad
>>
>>137437659
Higurashi's message at least has a context (the club trying to decide what to do and how to save themselves), in Umineko it's mostly Ange and Featherine spouting pseudo-philosophical shit
>>
http://blog.esuteru.com/archives/8504974.html
Here's litterally an article about Iwaihime not selling only 10 copies
>>
>>137437557
I also like FSN but let's not get there.
>>
>>137438169
Wow, that article was really fucking specific

So the 11 sales thing is just a bug with the site then? I guess that makes sense
>>
>>137438737
He is right though.
Not like FSN is great but it's not hard to be better than Umineko
>>
>>137431445
Sounds like people are just butthurt they can't fap to it. I can't see complaints on the story.
>>
>>137438838
Not really, he is just looking for excuses
It only sold 11 in DMM, nothing debunked it so far.
That just mean that most people probably bought the actual game in store which is normal since who the fuck would buy a digital game when you can buy it in store for the same price or less

>>137438991

I always thought that was the best part about his work. His writing leads you into a gray area where you're trying to figure things out and nothing makes sense then you just enter crazyland and everything cranks up to eleven and suddenly shounen battles out of nowhere.
That was the best parts of higu and cats for me. It felt like wandering through the forest and getting attacked by pegasi or whatever the plural of pegasus is, its magical.

R07 should just write his shit in french instead, nips just don't seem to like his work.

When it works, it works well.
You get moments of Ryukishi's ridiculously fun craziness sprinkled around RGD - especially with Wang and Gabriel.
But there's not nearly enough of it, and as a whole it's still incomparable to the sort of Ryukishi-esque writing from Umineko.

It's DMM. It literally specialises in eroge
>>
>>137431445

VN's are kind of about who or what is trendy and unfortunately Ryukishi07 hasn't been since the late 2000's. I had heard fans felt kind of betrayed by events in the later Umineko volumes too. In VN land it's all about Nitroplus, Type-Moon these days and even KEY seems to be trying to stage a comeback by working with the kingmakers at Aniplex on synergy titles. What has Ryukishi07 done to advertise his products.

>>137432677

It's hardcore otaku oriented stuff so they charge up the ass assuming obsessive fans will still pay up.

Maria was really just depressing. Not a very good role model.
>>
>>137435887

I kind of wish they'd just go back to exclusively playing doujin and eroge and leave the anime scene alone already. It'd probably mean a drastic drop in profits for the producers that have relied on obsessive fan money for way to long, but it'd cut a lot of dependency issues on both sides and really free up the anime scene to go in a much needed new direction.
>>
>>137442683
>new direction
To the grave.
>>
>>137442683
Then we'd just get mecha originals and manga adaptions.
>>
>>137442763

I'd almost be okay with that if it means getting rid of a really annoying fanboy influence or at least cutting it down signficantly. It'd just mean that anime kind of goes back to being like it was before the late 2000's....you know when it was kind of fun and not just full of asshole crazy fanboys and producers that think they need to cater to them exclusively and pump their tires so they'll give them money.

Since you don't seem to understand japanese, he basically says nothing new except the most basic shit and he is also wrong in one part since he seems to think the only 11 copies sold was just a fake created by some antis.

DMM has two different sites for Iwaihime

This one, which currently has 12 sales

And this one, which is ranked number 1 in sales
http://dlsoft.dmm.com/detail/dmmgames_0001/


They aren't the same. If you look at them they even have different ratings (first has 3 stars, second has 4,5)

The whole eroge industry is dead and the majority of talent is moving to the anime and LN industry, you're way too late.
>>
>>137447090

Eroge doesn't matter anyways. All the high profile VN makers are still making them. Utawarerumono and Steins;Gate 0 both did beyond excellent last year, selling higher than most things have in years, and Minato Soft even has a visual novel by Romeo Tanaka coming out this year. None of them are Eroge but they all speak for themselves in terms of quality. Ryukishi as well has never done an eroge.

If I wanted porn I'd go play a nukige anyways, which I already do.
>>
>>137447838
It's not like Romeo's stuff sells anyway.
>>
>>137439539
To be fair, that wasn't really Ryukishi's fault. He was only given the bare bones behind the story and characters and told to write whatever he felt like, promising they'd fix things or tell him what to rewrite later. They never did.
>>
>>137447838
Or you can have porn as a supplementary part of the story, especially if it's focused on relationships. Anime almost never delivers this so eroge is the only solution.
>>
>>137448552
I wouldn't mind some porn drawn by Ryukishi. I'd buy it.
>>
>>137440175
Why would you read a VN for the porn? 99% of VN porn is shit.
>>
>>137448517
>believing his leis
>>
>>137447838
Most worthwhile VNs are actually eroge.
>>
>>137448679
Actually, it was Vava himself who confirmed that he gave free reign to Ryukishi while the latter was trying to do something "key" like before being told not to do so.
>>
>>137448645
Whether it's shit or not is another matter, but if you aren't interested in it at all, why even bother with VNs, just watch anime, read LNs or whatever.
>>
>>137441121
Same, it changed the way I think.
>>
>>137448708

Were eroge.

When's the last time an actual good visual novel was an Eroge besides Sakura no Uta?

>>137431445
Why japanese otaku are so obsessed with porn? You can have all the porn you want for free on the internet why do they need a 5 minute shit-tier porn scene in every visual novel to buy it?
>>
>>137449550
Context, or something. Unfortunately most of the time they're completely unfappable in story-driven stuff. I like ero as much as the next person but I play nukige to fap.
>>
>>137449705
But there are plently of visual novels that are not nukige. R07 never puts h in his stories why are they complaining? It's juste stupid, it's not meant to be porn
>>
>>137449823
It's just a staple of the genre. Most PC VNs have porn so that's what people have come to expect. If they were released on a console no one would complain.
>>
>>137449056
Fuck off JOP
>>
>>137449944
Higurashi and Umineko had huge a success and there was no porn. Mahoyo has no porn. I thought the cliché of the pointless porn scene in every visual novel was over, but apparently not.
>>
>>137449277
I actually followed the message of Umineko and is now living happily. Granted I know I have issues but overall I think my happiness improved after reading Umineko.
>>
>so many people in this saying Umineko was shit

I guess it's because US people can't read...
>>
>>137449550

I've been trying to figure this out for the longest myself, and ultimately I feel like it's really just tradition.
Like, you look at the 90s and there were lots of porn games and dating sims, and then you have stuff like Yu-No which had porn but had a really interesting plot and a full write up on quantum theory in it. Apparently it changed the industry forever, considering a number of the best writers nowadays cite it as a huge inspiration for them.

At the least, it acts as a sort of deterrent for a younger crowd. Admittedly I read Fate/Stay Night for the first time when I was in middle school, but for the most part being 18+ means you can write for an 18+ crowd and market it for adults and that in itself is sort of an advantage.
>>
>>137450038
You no porn faggots already have all other possible mediums to enjoy without porn or believable relationship development. Eroge is pretty much the only place you can expect a couple to actually fucking fuck.
>>
>>137450038
I've heard Mahoyo sold badly compared to F/SN, but I don't know if it's actually true
>>
>>137450271
I guess Japanese can't read either.
>>
>>137450391
Visual novel is a good medium too. There are things Iike in VN that I can't find in other mediums.
>>
>>137450396
FSN was a huge success, selling more than it is very difficult
>>
>>137450396
Mahoyo was quite successful and >>137450596

>>137450438
But it's not a secret they have shit tastes
>>
>>137450728
Well, duh, they can produce literal shit and retards would still buy it as long as it's somehow connected to the universe.
It didn't have porn because for popular franchises going 一般ゲーム is much more profitable than staying in the niche eroge market.

>>137450396
Everything sells badly compared to FSN.
