You cried, right?
I was depressed for months afterwards and it actually affected my work
>meet girl at college
>seems pretty cool at first
>say she's looking for a new game
>recommend Katawa Shoujo
>she installs it, complains about all the reading, and immediately uninstalls it
>later turns out to be a stone cold heartless bitch who's completely indifferent to the suffering of others
I should've known. From now on, never trusting a girl who hates KS.
My first time making this on /v/ and you guys just blindly hate me for no reason
So ugh Fuck You
Played all 5.
Cried on Hanako, Emi, and Shizune bad end. Felt tons of feels for Lily; didn't care for Shizune good end or Rin at all. Wasn't depressed; in think melancholic is the right word. Certainly sad I'd never have such an idealized relationship as Lily. I can say I definitely wished she was a real person.
Got over it after a month. Wasn't able to fap and lacked any sort of libido for a few weeks. I came to fap and left with feels.
It really, really isn't hard to figure out, anon. The answer is right in your own goddamn post. It's the first one a lot of people'd ever played. Like, you're free to have whatever opinion you like but at least try to think for yourself a little bit.
I didn't feel anything, sorry.
Maybe I was a little sad at the end of Lily's route but other than that nothing.
Maybe it was legitimately too deep for me at the time.
Emi and hanako had a really emotional story.
That blind girls story was ok too.
Rin was 2deep4u and kinda lame. That girl with the glasses was full retard and terrible.
Proabably only media that has ever actually affected me emotionally
I read through most of it but got tired of it after Lily, Emi and Hanako.
I suppose the fact I can still remember the names of the characters speaks wonders about how attached I was to the "game", but in the end I just found it an enjoyable read, it wasn't life changing. And I never hung out in the /vg/ threads ever like some of those faggots. They are on 2886 threads now. How in the fuck?
Pretty sure the people that hang out in that general haven't watched or read a lot of other media.
There's a shitton of VN and animu that are much more depressing than KS.
I liked Rin and Lilly. Rin moreso, I'd pop codeine with her all day every day.
I liked Shizune as a character but fuck her route really jesus fucking christ
Emi is alright.
Hanako is eh, I don't like the extremely shy types.
I'm just gonna post my favourite reaction image because I barely had chance to use it.
I hope you like it.
How are you suppose to self insert to a fucking cripple ? How the fuck are you suppose to find invalids attractive or interesting ? who was this game made for ? real life invalid weebs ?
Only did Shizunes route 'cause I thought she was the cutest, and while I hear it wasn't as good as the others, it had so many similarities with my high school experience that I enjoyed it quite a bit.
Here you can see Japanese reviews of it:
I have considered doing it, but there are other things that I prioritize studying before grorious nipponese. And not like I give a shit if I have "good taste" in weeb porn, as much as I like it and other VNs I've read.
The endings of Kara no Shoujo were the worst part of the entire VN. The conclusions were weak and I hated how your choices affected things they shouldn't have.
No VN should pull this type of shit:
>eat a sandwich
You meet up with your girlfriend and go on to have a child together and live happily ever after.
>drink a milkshake
Your girlfriend is stabbed in the middle of the street as she's leaving the apartment of a man who just paid her for sex.
Because Katawa Shoujo's sadness was usually more of an emotional thing that still seemed somewhat believable as opposed to the ridiculously over the top, stupid bad ends you see in KnS
I actually made really good friends with a 6' 2" athletic Chinese girl in college because of KS. So, you know, it's not impossible.
Doesn't really matter what you grab, just stay away from kusoge.
There's one image that gets posted a lot as a way to get you started. My favorite is probably Tsukihime if you want to give it a shot. Some will recommend Kara no Shojo, Swan Song, Saya no Uta, etc.
Like I said, just grab whatever catches your eye.
Why? It's pretty good, not very long, and gets worse with every other vn you read.
Whatever, have a chart.
I found this image, is it accurate?
I want all the faggots who cried of Katawa to play Clannad
That shit will break you
It's certainly a list that contains most English translated VNs out there. So just pick something.
You shouuld understand that VNs aren't a genre, but a medium. So you state your preferences and then look for something that matches them. Obviously it'll be much harder if you can't read Japanese.
I don't think any VN is "well written" at all, for what little I know about writing. I simply enjoyed them quite a lot.
But if you do know about some, feel free to point them out. Could use them on my backlog.
Play one Key VN, played most of them.
Never played it. Don't intend to either. If the VN doesn't involve murder mystery, I don't really care. Dating Sim VN are not my cup of tea, even if the characters look like pic related
Somewhat related, but at my university we had a series of student presentantions about what helps with studying Japanese and some guy recommended eroge. Specifically he mentioned some entry level short stuff, but also Rance series.
I mean, c'mon, Rance?
People don't like it? Eh, I think it's great. Has some of the funniest moments like pic related.
I think what really fucked me with Katawa Shoujo was the music.
If I had read it with no sound, I don't think I would've cared. But the way they picked the right songs for the right scenes made me go through the whole disabled dick for several months and a sudden will to improve myself.
I do wonder if the songs actually have any effect on people who haven't played the VN.
Must have been the combination of story and sound that made the feels.
