    Re: Visual Novel Cafe

    Finally finished Making * Lovers. It’s hard to write a review because it’s very character-driven. Just recommend for people who like vanilla with minimal drama.

    My favorite heroines have to be Karen and Mashiro. I think Karen is supposed to be tsundere but the common route is so short I don’t get to see her tsuntsun side much and she ends up being a deredere and tsukkomi heroine instead. Feel a little unsatisfied because while the main theme is marriage the epilogue just skips all the proposal and wedding scene, but her route is still the most heartwarming for me. Mashiro doesn’t leave any impact at first, but she just hit my soft spot in a strange but positive way. One of the very few eccentric heroines that I actually fall for. I think her route is the most consistent in terms of quality. The (relatively) rich cast of supporting characters also makes it funny and interesting.

    Now what should I play next? Nothing interesting for me this month so maybe I’ll go clear that backlog.

    This month and February both don't have much interesting VNs for my narrow preference. I'll probably try out 縁りて此の葉は紅に by Lump of Sugar, but there's no real reason for it. Otherwise, I'll probably replay some VNs and finish Mary Sketer on the PS Vita.

    Re: Visual Novel Cafe

    Same here, nothing much in the coming month that really caught my interest.

    I ended up finishing Natural Vacation after all. There's not much in terms of story, especially in Haruka's route in which most of the scenes involve the protagonist eating her food. Yuzuki's is a little more eventful but I wouldn't expect too much either. Both routes sport a sudden bit of drama right at the very end, but it's very cliche and solved in a matter of minutes. The one thing the VN has going for it is the further use of e-mote, included in the ecchi scenes as well this time around. It's the third game with e-mote ecchi scenes I've played so far (the other two being Maitetsu and ひまわり!! -あなただけを見つめてる-), and it's the easily the best one of the three. It's still a little jerky especially when the characters try to do wide motions, but overall it works much better that in the previously mentioned games.

    Re: Visual Novel Cafe

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask for visual novel recommendations. I finished playing Discipline the Record of a Crusade (vndb page), and I'm looking forward for something similar. I'm not speaking of the hentai style of the game, but something similar in the storyline.

    I'd like a visual novel with a good story containing a good relationship where the main male protagonist gets motivated thanks to the main heroine/female character. For example, in Discipline, the protagonist is lazy and not good in school as well as life stuff, but thanks to the female character, whose very strict and hardcore student, he manages to study and to gets result in life (e.g. the baseball game). I'd really like something similar to this story. A visual novel with a strong motivating female character and slice of life. There must be a relationship between the two main characters.

    I'm just starting out, and I'm quite new on the visual novel scene. I hope I don't want too much, I sincerely appreciate any kind of suggestion you guys can provide.

    Re: Visual Novel Cafe

    I can think of a few games that would fit your description, but not quite as dark/perverted as the title you've mentioned. Unfortunately Slice of Life and Good Story rarely go well together, it's usually one or the other. The games I'm thinking of are however mostly in Japanese and I don't know if you can either read it or are willing to bother with a text hooker for them.

    You may want to try 家族計画. It has an English version, feature a relatively broken protagonist at the start that, by interacting with various characters and rather reluctantly, grows into a more responsible adult. It doesn't really have a dominatrix heroine though, if that's what you're looking for.

    Re: Visual Novel Cafe

    So Caramel-Box re-released the first two Otoboku games in one bundle as a prelude for the third game this late March...the first game gets 1.2 version, apparently to improve compatibility with later OS. The second game is exact same as the original release (though the patch comes along with the new version), that if you have the old release installed, the autorun will go straight to play rather than install. The first game's install is separate from the old release for some reason...the 1.2 version probably can't be applied via patching...save data is not interchangable.

    Too worn out to read novels lately though...

    Re: Visual Novel Cafe

    So... I have tried out 縁りて此の葉は紅に, but it's not really my cup of tea. It has in the early common route more sexual jokes and innuendos than with other pervy-MC VNs. In addition, most female heroines are useless one way or another. It has its funny parts and I may as well finish Kazuha's route as she seems okay-ish.
    GIGA's Soikano is also rather unimpressive. Don't get me wrong, the summay of the VN makes it clear that nothing thrilling will be going on with the main theme about sleeping, but that could also be nice from time to time. But yeah, fairly unspectular overall. The confession just happens somewhat and I was like "M'Kay?"

    Otherwise, I'm replaying Lovesick Puppies, and jeeze it seems I'm growing sentimental in my early 30 as the rain scene with Orie and Koutarou always manages to tear me up (a bit) *lol*.

    Since I'm also currently replaying some older titles at a leisurely pace, I know the feeling. I think it must have to do with nostalgia a bit. Reminding me of how I felt when I played these games years ago as I read through them again still make still teary eyed, even though I still remember clearly what happened in them. At the same time, the same scene with little to no variation in a more recent title will usually fail to move me even a little bit. Not that things were better or that much different before, but at least they were fresher in the eyes of a less experienced reader.

    As for the games I recently completed, I tried and finished AkabeiSoft3's 少女と年の差、ふたまわり。. I went in with very little expectation considering it's AkabeiSoft and low price, but it was actually pretty good. For a low price game that looked like a typical lolicon nukige, there was a unexpected amount of effort in the prologue, and in the rather depressing setting surrounding all the characters. The two main characters grow slowly closer to each other, and it was relatively easy to relate to the loneliness of the middle-aged salaryman who puts on a happy face at work to avoid people prying to deep. Anyway, things were actually pretty fine, but unfortunately all the story budget went into the prologue and once the confession happens, things suddenly go back to nukige mode. The protagonist doesn't hesitate a minute before going all the way, something that was odd considering his prior behavior. The following scenes are basically a series of situations leading to sex rather than actual bonding or depicting the problem with a relationship between characters with such an age-gap. The significant age-gap itself is barely an issue in the game. In some way, it reminded me of Sachi's route in こいのす☆イチャコライズ, another game that featured complex character bonding before turning full nukige. There's one last surge of story right at the very end with a bit of a confrontation, but it still left me with the feeling that the game could have been something more if the writer was left to focus on the story rather than his quota of sex scenes to fulfill.

    I've also been replaying some Lovely x Cation 2 and Toono Soyogi's Hinata still makes my heart melt. I've finally completed Wakoto's route and it was fine, but I had forgotten how disturbing the protagonist could be with his picture-taking at the most awkward times. I also remembered the game to be harder, but without looking anything up I managed to unlocked all the extra scenes in a single run.

    Re: Visual Novel Cafe

    After finding out that Ametoyuki was one of the artists behind Giga's latest 添いカノ~ぎゅっと抱きしめて~, I decided to give the game a try. After all, キミの瞳にヒットミー wasn't irredeemable so a Giga miracle could have occured again and made something interesting. Unfortunately, not this time, as I struggled to get through the common route before dropping the game for good. There's nothing inherently wrong with the game, but it's just so generic, boring and predictable that skipping two line out of three is more than enough to still follow the paper-thin plot. The heroines don't stray from their stereotypes, they may get more development later but after the common route none of them interested me and I couldn't care less about the protagonist's dreams.

    I considered playing through Aika's route, as she is the one drawn by Ametoyuki, the reason why I started up the game in the first place. However, she's voiced by Fujisaki Usa, and after listening to quite a few radio shows featuring her I just can't associate her voice with an innocent character anymore. Guess I'll add her to the list of CVs I can't enjoy anymore, along with Tachibana Mao. Take it from me, if you can avoid it don't listen to CV radio shows, after listening to them talk dirty it's very difficult to accept their voice for characters that are supposed to be still pure and innocent.
