Hark, bearer of radiance.
Hark, noble young one.
I have heard your voice.
Call for me, and I shall come.
Even if a heavens-scraping dragon should appear...
I shall don my armor and rush to your side.
One of the sakura games i think
why fuck fox girls when you can fuck pregnant babes
Finally things are as they should be.
Any other translated vns where I can get dominated by feminine penis?
Alice is my waifu.
Just kidding she sucks.
What do you guys think of Corpse Party? I've got a friend bothering me with it all the time, don't know if I should ask here though, looks like a vn/rpg.
Does it actually scare or is it just guro left and right?
It's just guro pretty much, I wouldn't call it scary imo at least if you're a man. It's still worth reading, far more interesting than a lot of other vns with their shit cliches and tropes.
I've only played the first one though.
A new route in GKG
I like how since you skip the common route to get to the new route, it seems like she suddenly gets incredible trauma within 2 seconds that she never showed before
Why are japanese people so bad with TVs? aren't they supposed to be good with electronics?
The padding is really absurd, if not for that it'd be worth reading I think. As it stands I would only recommend it to military otakus. Though they would probably be pissed at the simplified military complex? And all the SOL? This really isn't a game for anyone it seems. In fact, I would say GKG is really crippled by its own adherence to modern standards of game design. You simply can not have a functional military setting with only THREE adult characters. What the fuck were they thinking? Though, that still isn't nearly as big of an issue as the padding.
However, all that said, at least I'm having fun reading it. Critically it falls apart but as a fun little VN it's fine, the author is pretty good at making jokes.
Actually you can, if you abandon your plebeian EOP ways you can read it in its original language and enjoy a whole new experience.
There's too many kamige, it's hard to pick which one to read.
All the plebs saying they like Fate more than anything and how good it is yet they can't learn a single language to enjoy it at its fullest make me laugh.
Liars, they don't like type moon at all.
Don't you see Fate Stay Night and Muv Luv Alternative on there?
Wise man. There's pretty much infinite good nukige, whereas finding well written games is a much greater challenge. I read a lot of real novels in Japanese and they're pretty good, which is why when I choose a VN it tends to be moege or nukige.
Just to be clear, if you're being serious, I don't make new threads or even care about /vn/ vs /vng/.
Sure you don't, that's why whenever there's a /vn/ and a /vng/ thread at the same time the /vng/ thread gets several untranslated images and Ohaa, while the /vn/ thread is free of your shitposting.
It's a really fucking big game, one of the largest actually, and every group that's tried it so far has had a pretty amateur translator that fucked up a lot leading to the group disbanding quickly. Add on to that the fact that Monobeno is like 50% loli sex scenes the chances of it being brought over are pretty low, no official group would touch it and a fan translator would be hard pressed to be motivated.
Hey, men. Can you give me short explain of Everlasting Summer story? I read this novel recently, but in fact didn't understand meaning of this "Sovienok" camp.
One of Subahibi's chapter is called "Looking Glass Insect"
Hello KS shitter.
Just accept that it's shit.
Why did they give the characters shit Japanese names, and why did they give the game such a shallow title, in Japanese?
The answer: It was written by fucking weeb cunts with no imagination.
H O L Y S H I T
Just end your life, friend.
Did you know - you don't have to be a massive weeaboo to like anime, manga and hell, even the culture?
No, I bet you didn't you weeb faggot.
Best girl was decided long ago.
Are you serious? It's literally a 70 EGS moege game by a random shit company. It's going to be worse than pretty much everything you played before.
Meanwhile Root Double, an actual good game, is failing.
I kinda hope this causes a tumbling down effect where the western market rebels against moege trash. Like, the game comes out and everyone's disappointed because it's shit, and therefore stops buying moege.
>no sexual content
I can find an average fantasy or sci-fi story any day of the week.
VNs are useless shit without the added porn.
It's nice to get to know the characters through some semblance of a story with the cherry-popping porn on top.
>western market rebels against moege trash
Won't happen. I'd say a huge chunk of people who read VNs are in it for the cute anime girls and porn. Just scroll up and look at MGs sales list. The average person doesn't care about deep and engaging stories in their VNs.
That's okay too.
However personally I don't give a shit about VNs with no sexual content.
Never tried it.
It's not like I think even the ones with porn are actually good.
It's just that there's no real alternative of something with a somewhat thought out and long story that involves porn with the characters as well.
Especially with pictures and voice acting and from the male perspective.
Whoops I forgot this was a new thread

2. Beach Bounce
3. The Menagerie
4. Divine Slice of Life
5. Sakura Santa
My honest opinion at the current moment is all the fans of moege are people who haven't read a lot of VNs. If you remember that poll from awhile ago, 90% of people or so have read less than 50 VNs. For awhile, EOPs haven't had too many really good moege, like Hoshimemo was like just about it for awhile, Kira Kira too I suppose. So then, this year, PE, Noble works, Koichoco, a bunch of high quality moege come out and everyone's like holy SHIT moege are great, but honestly, that's just because they haven't read too many moege yet. The first ones are always the best. After that they get boring and you need better moege. Which is not Libra, which is not a lot of what's getting attention. So when, I hope, people notice that moege tend to be pretty repetitive and dull, an anti-moege sentiment sparks.
Do you think Maya would be a veterinarian if she wasn't forced into the rich lifestyle?
F/SN isn't a moege.
The point I'm driving are that the appeal of moege drops really quickly after you've played a couple, due to the inherent repetition of love, and one will start looking for MORE from a moege, more comedy, better drama, etc etc to the point where all the garbage getting brought over will be hopefully be rejected.
After reading a lot of nukige, I've got to say, the romance in most of these moege is really getting dull as fuck. The first 10 or so times all the icha and dere is pretty amazing, but soon the lines start repeating and the scenes start following a pattern and damn, it's like nukige does this love and romance stuff just as good as half these moege but without tens of hours of padding. I don't know if I can muster up the will to read any more moege if they're all going to be this repetitious.
And I mean, holy shit. There's all this big drama about the girl giving up her first time to MC, how wonderful and romantic here's a soft piano track... but dudes, I've fucked HUNDREDS of anime girls, this isn't "my" first time, this is just another anime girl staining my cum rag among hundreds of others, so what if she offers "me" her virginity I've conquered like 100 other virgins. Anyway, yeah.
This pasta is pretty good. I approve of this meme.
> I've fucked HUNDREDS of anime girls, this isn't "my" first time
Well aren't you a tough guy, Onii-chan.
Okay /vn/, what's a good nakige that has plot and
h-scenes. I'm in the mood for some true feels.
in that case what do you think about https://vndb.org/v1660 or https://vndb.org/v57
If you don't think Ikikoi is hilarious you really should kill yourself.
I fucking told you.
I'll say it again, and I'll say it straight, anonymous. If i catch you face hanging around near my posts again, the last thing you'll see on this planet will be my fist.
You don't want to get on the wrong side of me, I'll tell you that for sure.
Do you understand me?
I SAID do you understand me?!
This. The only thing I loved during that lacrosse part when Takeru lost his shit. Its not just about the speech but that ost had played for the first time and I was imagining battles, tragedy and shit while listening.
Would you play a VN about romance between a loli stuck in a computer and it's hikkiNEET user?
It could be like Midori no Hibi but 100x more terrifying.
Root double won't be funded in time.
Compare: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/mikandijapan/libra-of-the-vampire-princess-visual-novel-english/#chart-daily v.s. http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/sekaiproject/root-double-before-crime-after-days-xtend-edition/#chart-daily
Just looking at the raw data, Libra raised a good 10k more than Root Double did within the same time period (first 10 days), yet barely reached 125k with 5 days to go, trending toward 146k. This is with constant viral advertising that Root Double doesn't have. Top that off with a goal 20k higher than Libra, and I believe it's going to miss it's target unless a miracle occurs.
Kid please, selected 3 at random, there are hundreds of more, do you often come out of your mancave?
Because VNs are usually compressed more, only adapt the 'main' heroines even though they're frequently not the most popular or interesting or try to do too much and end up really stupid as a result.
No wonder they are making fun of neets everywhere outside the internet
What I was trying to say was this:
You claim to have an interest in politics, but the extent of your interest can be summarized as "telling people on the internet about x, y, z".
It's fucking pathetic.
It's ridiculous how mismanaged Sekai is. He wastes money like no tomorrow acting like a bigshot, but he's working in a small, niche market.
He's expanded too quickly and did the same thing localizers did with anime in the 90s - speedrelease all the greats for mediocre profit due to rushed translations and a lack of financial pacing for the consumer (meaning fewer people will pick it up on release), expand localization enough to carry all these titles to the point of outstripping the creation of new above-average VNs and form a negative reputation for doing this.
Soon they'll realize that there aren't enough widely salable, excellent VNs that producers are willing to allow filthy gaijin to translate for a reasonable price, and so their entire, unsustainable and poor-quality translation segment will implode along with the future of the company.
It's like business 101 - don't expand too quickly or it'll blow up in your face.
I'm not they guy, but you had sources, even usually the most pro illegal immigrant sources report massive increase in rape crime across UK, if you are so inclined to dig in, take your shot at office for national stats report, will tell you the same.
You know what's pathethic? This level of delusion.
Different anon here but that is not what you can humour. What you posted is Japanese writers being fucking tryhard at breaking the 4th wall. Ikikoi is a /vn/ meme, nothing more.
I think it's hilarious you could tell he thought the Root Double KS would be a slam dunk just by looking at the reward tiers when they were first released. They were so fucking lazy and barebones and then they realize the money isn't flowing in so they have to scramble and do this shit.
How do you faggots do this shit? Literally need a fucking walkthrough just to download something. I just want to fuck hot waifus and shit. Not multitask 5 downloads and hope I don't get a virus.
Strength in number, myself, yes, i do fuck all.
I'm not in a governmental position nor obscenely rich, but the fact the most liberal and pro multiculti sources out there report on those things shows the face it cannot be hidden anymore. This was very essential when we had UKIP an astronomical surge comparing elections last year and 2010.
Now, you claimed that child molester getting scott free in uk is a pol meme, you've been provided some sources by someone else, i've given you direction of national crime stats made with government funding. What else do you need? pol may be full of memes, but you are simply being delusional now. If you need anything else just google "rotherham", seriously, where are you people coming out from under?
> I think it's hilarious you could tell he thought the Root Double KS would be a slam dunk just by looking at the reward tiers when they were first released. They were so fucking lazy and barebones and then they realize the money isn't flowing in so they have to scramble and do this shit.
Well, most people would think a Takumi Nakazawa game would be a slam-dunk considering the fandom around Uchikoshi's games, how most of Takumi's other, earlier works were translated and enjoyed by tens of thousands, and how legitimately good Root Double is.
The problem is that half the active userbase hates Sekai Project at this point, it's obvious that there's already a planned release so the Kickstarter is irrelevant, the rewards are shit so basically the only people who are funding it are either at the $30 or $60 tier, and barely anyone knows about it.
Sekai Project is soooo depressingly mismanaged. If I was at the reins it'd be stupidly easy to corner this market with minor investor support (like dovac has), but nope.
>KimiNozo was released in 2001
>Still not translated in 2016
Deen saving anime plus a bunch of other great shows. It really is one of the best seasons in a while.
Shame about KyoAni though.
Bait. This season is mostly shit, but spring is looking to be god-tier.
Only decent shows this season:
> Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
> Lesbian robots.
> Romeo Memery
> Phantom World.
Psycho-Pass, I mean Active Raid might be OK despite feeling like fujobait. Bahamut will be stupid but tolerable because I like battleharems.
But yeah, given that I have pretty wide tastes, this season is pretty shit. The only ones that had a good first episode was Subarashii and Boku Dake ga Inai Machi.
I'm the same, i became terribly cynical over the years, but eden gave me some seriously nice feelings.
That's probably because you are a fucktard that should never be given anything living into your hands. Just do like you would nurse a small abandoned bird and not a fucktoy, that's the entire point of that game.
first game, i'm on day like 50 and no end in sight
But I've tried everything and nothing's working. I didn't rape her, I did rape her, I fed her, I left her home, I gave her clothes, I left her in rags, I talked to her, I lightly touched her, I didn't lightly touch her. And SO MUCH HEAD PETTING.
I can only say i did it very gradually, did touch her maybe twice, raping a rape victim doesn't work, does it? Talked to her rarely and mostly one or two times at a time, you don't want a rape victim to remember what happened before. I patted her a lot and just waited until she opened up. That's what you are supposed to do, use your head and apply some basic psychology.
Don't you hate how she's so loved by her sister? And Jo isn't that great either. She went after Tesla after promising Neon she wouldn't, then later goes "Oh no, I ruined your relationship". March sisters were my least favorite characters in that vn.
Lolis are for Uber Atziri, not raping you dumbass
It's an emotional rollercoaster
The first tale is a pretty decent love story on it's own, you'll particularly enjoy it if you're tired of some of the cliches found in moege. The anime adaptation of the first tale is considerably more dramatic than the VN.
The second tale is even better. Regarding >>128583169, ef also contains some pretty happy moments. Don't read the tags on VNDB, as you don't want the plot to be spoiled for you.
IT IS NEITHER FA.M NOR SENPAI, IT IS THE MEME THAT WILL DEFEAT YOU!
I didn't even like any other girls.
Also Yuuyi is a fucking shithead acting like a dick most of the time, I fucking hated the guy.
You gotta get into his character man. Don't self insert. Yes an obtuse antisocialite. How do you think he would react to a qt girl giving her all to her best ability? It's what makes those scenes that much more adorable.
He is smooth at the gags, and honestly it is not hard to get into his character.
I just simply dislike the way he acts towards the girls thats all.
Also who the fuck was in charge of drawing pic related
who the fuck keeps making more of these?
A-3? Not for a long time.
Both meido routes were pretty good though. so you have something to look forward to unlike A-4 with garbage level Rinchuu and even worse Homura routes.
There's one in the recommendation chart.
The MC marries the girl he is dating at the end of a moege.
Just finished Noble Works, it was a nice comfy read. All the routes/girls were really cute, except Hinata's was kind of boring compared to the others.
It was a nice feel good story. Takumi goes from poverty to marrying the cute girl of his dreams and even getting hooked up with a nice job in some of the routes. He had it better than Masaya from PE.
>Not for a long time
Well that sucks, they finished the first one & S pretty quickly so I thought A wouldn't take long.
I'm actually looking forward to A-4 too, just not as much as A-3. Homura is qt af.
The others three A's are the ones I give no fucks about.
No anon, I meant Kara no Shoujo.
You must read Cartagra before KnS2 at least, but it'd be best if you read it before KnS.
Keep it mind that almost everyone considers KnS to be much better than Cartagra, except perhaps for post-war atmosphere of Cartagra.
Cartagra is pretty good but the main character isn't much of a detective compared to his sister or the main character from Kara no Shoujo.
But I would say that it's definitely worth a read.
I could post major spoilers just on CGs alone but I'm a nice guy.
The first Majikoi and S already had most of their work done. I'm not sure about S, but Majikoi was at around 80% when the picked it up. Granted, they're almost done with A-1 but there's still A-2 first.
Oh, and A-2 isn't bad. Well, actually, robot girl was a waste of time and mainly serves to introduce a small plotline spanning the fandisks that I don't care about and I guess Monshiro After is only for if you liked Monshiro, but Seiso route was a lot of fun.
Yeah it was a nice story for Takumi compared to Masaya. Masaya had to deal with a lot more shit compared to Takumi and from what I can recall didn't get hooked up with some fancy job at the end of his ordeals.
Although I will say that Shizune is best girl hands down
Just think that if the KS fails and his game never makes it to the west its not because it may or may not be bad, but because people are losing trust in sekai since they have like 213423321 KS projects and like 2 or 3 delivered games.
I don't think SP has even fully completed one of their VN kickstarters yet. Like with everything they said they would do finished. For example Fault still has yet to have a vita port, World End Economica still isn't finished and I believe those were their first two. It's no surprise people don't want to support them anymore.
