No, I'm starting to be convinced we were placed here to suffer for the amusement of a higher being.
As soon as I find out, I'll let you know.
>No, I'm starting to be convinced we were placed here to suffer for the amusement of a higher being.
If in the end we get to go to a place where all of our wishes come true, fine by me.
Nth for Haneko!
And goodnight /ksg/. Have a purring night everyone.
Hey /ksg/! How was your day?
I had another dream about Misha.
Someone help please two days ago I had a strong hatred for her but now I'm falling in love.
read this, think of shizune
I ran today already. When it gets late, like now, I always start to tear up and cry for no apparent reason. What the hell is happening with me? Did the game made me subconsciously depressed? Fucking hell. Well I guess if I can't face my thoughts they will come out somehow on their own.
I wonder when will it end.
Nth for fuck its cold outside, but got to run those 10km.
By the time you read this message, I will be
probably asleep, since I have a busy day tomorrow. It will probably make no sense since I drift off every 2s but anyways.
I don't know man, I don't usually visit this general more than once a month or so just to see if there's anything new and leave, but...
I read this thing ages ago. Back then I didn't even know what I was getting into. I had the vague idea that it was a love story, and considering at the time I was inexperienced with stuff like this, I wanted to see what it was like. I figured I'd forget like the rest of them anyways.
I don't remember everything, I just remember playing through all of the routes, including Grid1 and alpha. Have you guys played Grid1? The one with the gray backgrounds and the different artist? I still keep thinking back and figuring that Rin was supposed to be way different, and she was. She wasn't insane, just half crazy and lampshading herself the rest of the time. I still want a route with that Rin.
I read many of the popular routes on ks.renai, and then... I did kind of forget.
I mean I don't know how long ago it was. Maybe a few months, feels like decades, and I'm guessing years. But I did forget. Every once in a while I'd think "Oh yeah, there was a thing like that", and I'd be nostalgic, if that's what you could call it.
I'm now 19 and I'm finishing high school, and I may have a long life ahead, but I think I've just realized how far people are, guys and girls alike, from what I expected, particularly how far girls are from the pictures of Katawa Shoujo.
Man, I wish things were different. I wish I could meet at least one who had Lilly's compassion, Emi's tenacity, Misha and Shizune's drive, Rin's carefreeness or Hanako's hidden courage.
I wish you guys did too. You've held it for years without seeing them, you deserve it if for nothing else than dedication. Maybe new people will see KS and get the feels I did because of you guys.
Anyways, I have to go.
Not as far as I know, in fact, one of its states is on the opposite side of the globe from me.
Sleep tight, street light.
>I wish you guys did too. You've held it for years without seeing them, you deserve it if for nothing else than dedication
It's a nice thought, meeting a girl like one of them. I think it's best to just take that feeling and direct it towards being a better person. That's what I try to do, anyway.
It's okay, anon. I go through periods where I autistically need to hide every rinpost because she upsets me and I can't get past the fact that she'd have disgustingly dirty feet and would most likely need a diaper. But then there are other times when I don't give a shit and are glad that anons have a waifu, even if she's the worst one in my opinion.
Would you have manly picnics with someone's waifu?
finally I got the good Rin ending, and getting all the good endings with that. Im finally done with this game and my soul can rest. Thanks ksg for this ride. It teached me many things. Im off tochange my fucking life already
>I'm finally done with this game
Oh sweet, innocent anon.
There is no escape.
Who's still sad here?
We can do much more than relax if you are a cute girl.
That's a shame.
>“I am not a natural performer,” Bowie said in a rare interview in 2002. “I don’t enjoy performing terribly much. Never have. I can do it and, if my mind’s on the situation, do it quite well. But, five or six shows in, I’m dying to get off the road and go back to the studio.”
>In the same interview, he said: “My entire career, I’ve only really worked with the same subject matter. The trousers may change, but the actual words and subjects I’ve always chosen to write with are things to do with isolation, abandonment, fear and anxiety, all of the high points of one’s life.”
Seeya later, Major Tom.
/ksg/ doesn't do too good on the weekdays, does it?
We never did. We're all a bunch of
REEEEEEEEEEnormalfags after all. Or ones in process of becoming.
How do you guys deal with the fact that none of this ever happened and none of these characters exist?
One of the biggest feels for me to be honest.
Why is this such a good music video /ksg/?
Also, I've been playing Lilly's alpha. The writing is much more comedic at times, while still retaining the feels.
How oddly fitting.

We are slow, but we sure are friendly and comfy!
Left or right? What would you do on a date with them?
This is the only picture in my collection that I don't really like. Still a great picture, but that hair is WAY too purple.
What's your guy's favorite picture?
The only thing I've requested from a drawfag.
As someone who was here since the #1000+ Generals, how the actual fuck are you people still keeping this shit alive? Are there that many people discovering the game and coming in to discuss it or are you just circlejerking about your favorite cripple waifus and arguing about whether or not Hanako got raped?
>are you just circlejerking
Absolutely, unquestionably, yes.
Actually, people do sometimes come in here and ask for advice, whether for Katawa Shoujo or real life problems. I, myself, have only been here for a month. But, this has probably been the best time I have ever had. I love everyone here.
I don't have a favorite, but Req asked me what to draw and later posted this, so I like it a lot.
I just wanted to express my appreciation for everyone here. I also want to get something off my chest. Before I found this place, a month ago, I was planning my suicide. I have extreme depression, and not a day goes by when I think about how worthless I am, how nobody cares about me. The day before I was going to kill myself, I decided to browse 4chan one last time. I discovered this place. I felt drawn to it. I already played two routes beforehand, so I already knew the game and everything. I felt like I could belong here, somewhere where I would actually feel like people cared about me.
A week after I joined, a family member killed himself. I went to his funeral, and the stories read there about him were really sad. He was a father with two children. It helped me realise that no matter who you are, someone, somewhere cares about you. Don't kill yourselves.
Thank you, /ksg/ for literally saving my life. Love you all.
i remember i had a wallpaper made with this picture a while ago
I'm glad you found us and that you're still here.
That's why I'm waiting for my immediate family to pass away/forget me, so i can kill myself without being an emotional burden to anyone.
Perhaps staging it as an accident related to carbon monoxide as well.
Yeah I was going through a rough time when I came here too. I was scared that I'd kill myself. I can kind of relate. I've lost people too, to death or just people getting sick of me. I'm sorry you had to experience that. I found a lot of comfort here. I'm glad you're in a better place emotionally. I appreciate you, and the rest of ksg, too.
Seriously, you have to let that stuff out. You seem really cool. You seem to really want to contribute, and I like that. It's more than I can say honestly.
Holy crap, bro, you are always so happy and you seem so excited about working on KSO. I would never guess something like this.
Well, I'm glad that you found us and I'm very happy to share this space with you and love talking to you!
Also, please don't think about killing yourself, we love you.
As always, I'm looking forward to playing your contribution to ksg and
say hi to Olof for me!
Goodnight, bros, hope to see you all here tomorrow, love you all!
Silly Mikasi-anon, it's 8am. The stars are out because the sun goes up! How's it going?
Misaki-chan is the stars. I'm doing pretty well, one day at a time you know.
I can see some.
It's been ages since I've seen the night sky far away from light pollution. It was an unforgettable sight.
that feel when Lilly will never be able to see the night sky
The first request I ever made ranks up there.
This one. The facial expressions are just so damn cute!
I love this one.
Getting headpats while lying in a girls lap is my fetish
The fuck were you on, seriously. I'm curious both as a human being and as a pharm tech.
I invited my old schoolmate to my place not so long ago, just for a tea and some casual talk. We ended up like this at some point. I'm a long haired guy, and she really seemed to enjoy playing with my hair.
Does changing your name repeatedly to make people think you're less of a shitter count?
Because 2013 has gone through like 5 fucking names and shitposting personas, all while keeping the same trip.
It was a magical time. I never would've gotten myself back on my feet if not for those threads. If you were posting there trying to help people I probably owe you one.
There's that one nice Shindol doujin about the crippled woman and her friend.
I'm talking about the year 2013, not myself, obviously.
I suppose I don't see it.
Nice enough. I haven't been feeling too social lately, but thank for asking.
>That feel when you will never taste the french vanilla flavor of Lilly's lips
>That feel when you will never give a sleeping Emi a piggyback ride home
>That feel when you will never feel Rin's lips caress your hands as you feed her oranges
>That feel when you will never gaze at the stars with Shizune
>That feel when you will never wake up next to Hanako and take her into a loving embrace
>That feel when you will never feel a sleeping Misha press her soft body against you as you kiss her candy scented hair
"remember the friends online who are running as well"
Anon, did you run today?
I liked the Shizune good end.
Go out and live you life anon.
I thought going out more would be enough, but it wasn't. Every time I talk to someone it's like there's a wall between us; I can't get past casual acquaintance to actual friendship. I don't know if it's just that no one likes me, I'm too boring, or I'm not being forward enough, but whatever it is I need to get better at it because having no friends is pretty fucking shit.
Sorry for blogging, but getting it off my chest helps.
If it's any consolation, it happens to me as well. I met a lot of new people and talked to a lot of people, sometimes even a good time talking, but I never take the next step and invite them for something (or get invited). Which means our friendship stays at the level of common occupations, usually we end up only talking where I met them (work, college) and if I stop going there we never see each other again.
It happened so many times that I'm starting to believe I'm doing something wrong. I may try to be more active in inviting people to do shit.
My problem seems to be much more both ways than yours. I just lose interest too fast/prefer to be in my comfort zone when I shouldn't. Sometimes I feel people are afraid I'll reject an invite as well, because it feels I don't care enough about them.
We both just need to not care about what the fuckers think, find a nice thing to do, like some music concert, and invite the fuck out of people. Even if it doesn't develop a nice friendship, at least we had a good time in a nice place.
No, no, I've got that problem too. I've just had a hell of a time trying to get over it. I know I've got to keep trying but going for so long with no results is really discouraging.
The movie or the book? Both were great.
They're about to fug and Emi wants Hisao to take his socks off
Getting education is tough, math fucking kills my guts.
Beside that, I'm trying not to forget about /ksg/ since this is my second family.
Also the fucking Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor got me pinned to this potato of a computer.
>watching "over there"
>guy loses his legs
>it's portrayed pretty fugged uply
>realize that Emi had the same experience
>realize how much pain Emi had
also, I found these videos and made me very happy:
what a time to be alive
Imagine it when everyone can use bionics for their limbs that are 10 times better than our natural ones and everyone is half cyborg. I wish they try these stuff before I die. Fuck nature.
There's a painter who stares at miles of white
Each color she's dreamed is lost in thought and can't be found
Takes a walk through her head to ask his friends
If they'd come out
Come out from your shells, come chat with me and walk around
don't die /ksg/
We couldn't die if we wanted to.
And trust me, I want to.
>tfw you'll never spend 4 1/2 hours each year with your waifu watching the annual batsu
>tfw one fucking faggot is holding up an hours worth of footage
thanks bud, i'll live for a bit then
You wan't /ksg/ to die or to die yourself?
anyway, don't die!
The second one. KSG dying would be just terrible.
Japanese for punishment.
Gaki no Tsukai is a variety show in japan, and they do this thing called a batsu game every year for new years.
You can check the link in my previous post for download links, and watch the first 30 minutes of this years batsu as well.
Let me see if I can find any working stream links for previous batsus.
It's a comedy show, not really a game show.
That Lilly foot though.
Come up with a goal to work towards, break it down into small, manageable steps, and go for it. The hard part is keeping up with it over time. A nice, supportive community is the best aid in my experience.
I have never watched anime before in my life. Katawa Shoujo was the first experience with this whole genre. I think I like it.
I was advised to watch some cheery, happy anime to blow away the sadness of completing the game. Can you suggest some? I'm watching Sakamichi no apollon right now.
>NHK ni Youkoso
Don't be mean, he wants happy things.
It isn't super happy slice of life, but I always enjoy going back to FLCL.
If you want funny without having to resort to moe you can always watch some Lupin III.
>implying anything can make you happy
I'm still totally, totally blown away that he turned his own death into a piece of art.
What a fucking amazing man. To compose, write, direct and sing your own epitaph, and then let go of your life three days later. On the very DAY you sung about, just to complete the work. And peacefully, surrounded by your family and loved ones, no less.
it was meant to be a replacement for "kek", developed by nazi scientists, during 1981, but when it came out a few weeks ago, people didn't like it, and now only a handful of people use it.
Why were you zozzling at my anime suggestion?
I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE BOWIE IS DEEAAAAAAAAAAAD (;﹏;)
I got pretty sad after finishing the game and I tried to cheer up by watching silly anime comedies. It didn't work and I grew to hate them, losing forever my suspension of disbelief because most of them were simply too absurd to be even just acceptable
Before a few days ago I didn't even knew his name or who the fuck he was. I still only know his name and the fact that he was a musician or something.
I think it will work for me. The problem is that I rarely get any emotional input, but when I do, it has a big impact on me, and can fuck me up or give me boost easily. Currently I feel like anus, but this "anime" thing appears to be helping.
my uncle once told me about a chick who was walking on a bridge, and got hit by and IED. She was literallly ripped in halp, like nothing from the waist under. She was screaming and begging for my uncle to shoot her because of the pain.
And when I played Emi, I thought about it, and got really nervous.
Emi is the bravest little girl. SHES A CHAMPION.
tv is worse, but it spawned /bane/ on eightchhan which killed like 150 people with their meme-magic. At least they have accomplished something, even if it's a horrible tragedy.
Hey, /ksg/! How was your day?
A girl called me cute today, so that's cool I guess.
it's wasn't Hanako or Misha, sadly
>A girl called me cute today,
I've seen a cute gril today. And yesterday as well. That's about it.
Nighty night /ksg/, stay beautiful. Have a wahaha night.
I'm feeling so damn dizzy. It's like that feeling you have before you faint. What's going on?
Drinking helped a little. Thank you. I guess I'll just go to sleep now. Good night!
Stop it, Anon. You will not get into my pants this easily!
Hey, January 12 is National Kiss a Ginger Day! Lets show a little love to Sendai's hardest-working waitress-cum-librarian!
I didn't realize how starved for physical contact I was 'til this morning. I was on a crowded bus and a girl accidentally rested her head against my hand instead of the rail I was holding on to. Huh.
But Anon, it's the 13th.
No, it's scary.
I didn't know this was a real job.
Did you get a hard on?
You say that now, but then you
touch my butthole
Everything, being exposed to another human.
Make me, I'm the submissive type
>only submissives in KSG
There's nothing wrong with being straight and submissive anon.
Got your back, bro! I hope you like it.
Man, Yuuko gets no respect, not even on Kiss a Ginger Day
Goodnight, bro, love you!
Have a Yuuko, then.
More than any of the main girls, I really think Yuuko is my dream wife. Neurotic + ginger = teh sex. I just want to be there for her when she comes back from a long day of serving at the Shanghai, and settles down to study for college, and just massage stress right out of her shoulders.
Damn, you make a nice point, she would be great.
