This thread is for posting your thoughts and musings on whatever VN you're currently reading but haven't finished. (I looked to see if there is a similar thread, but I don't think there is one.)

I'm currently enjoying Snow Sakura. Thus far, even after choosing one of the girls' routes, most of the VN is still dedicated to SoL moments. I'd be a tad disappointed, but these scenes are simply pleasant and amusing. The characters' interactions with each other are well-done, exhibiting a sort of warmness as they tease one another. I'm also a big fan of the perverted male friend in Sumiyoshi who, despite occasionally rebuked, fits well with the group. Really, in general, the group dynamic is fantastic. Hopefully, the ending will be appropriate as there seems to be a wistful and cold air permeating throughout the town.

It seems it can be bought on JP Amazon, as well as DLSite. I couldn't find a place to pirate the Japanese version though I only checked Sukebei, archive.org, and skimmed through Japanese google results. I also checked for the compilation that it was rereleased with, to no avail.
I really wish the Japanese would upload things more often. I suppose their file sharing laws are taken more seriously...

I finished my goal for the day very early, so I decided to read some more Clannad. I finished Kotomi's route, which was very nice. I'm doing Kyou's route now. Unsurprisingly, the single OVA it got wasn't enough to do it justice. I never really cared for Ryou before, but she ended up growing on me a bit. Of course I like Kyou more. It's pretty harsh. I think everyone has experienced the conflict of the route in one way or another. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I've been reading Kanon. I like it more than Clannad so far, which I really, really enjoyed. It's still early to declare it my favorite. So far I've done Mai's, Nayuki's, and Shiori's routes; in that order. I didn't expect much from Mai's and Shiori's routes, but I was wrong to feel that way.
Mai is a really lovable character and the initial encounter paints a striking scene along with Girls' Prison playing. I had no intentions of going her route first, but I don't regret it. Sayuri is also fun and makes for a great foil to Mai.
Shiori seemed pretty uninteresting at first. I expected a boring and shy girl that didn't do anything. However, that's far from the case. I think her route is really interesting as from what I can tell it's the only one where the past isn't that important. It makes sense, of course, but it makes it stand out from the rest.
Nayuki is... perfect, really. She's the best, even outside her own route. Despite everything, she does so much. It also helps that she fits my tastes just about perfectly, in terms of her character as well as having a very cute design. My only complaint is that she didn't wear the frog PJs.
I'm doing Makoto's route now, and ending with Ayu Ayu. After that, I'll probably watch the anime to wrap things up until I get the urge to replay someday.

I've developed this habit out of low effort and laziness. I'll go to vndb.org and filter only games I can play on the browser. Usually I'll focus on very short reads in order to have a whole story in one sitting and try to spend as least time as possible actually selecting the title. I'll quickly go through the filtered list and click on the first title that stands out for me that day. If it needs a login or anything like that I just quit and try something else. Really handy when you're too depressed to go through the process of choosing and downloading something to play. There's also a surprise factor there where you don't really know what you're getting yourself into, it's nice. Just remember many of those freeware titles are done by very small studios and ocasionally a single person, so don't expect a high production value, though there are many of those as well.

To kickoff this thread here's what I read today. Gomen ne, Otaku-kun. It's about a girl flerting with poor Otaku-kun for laughs. Things get out of hand.
https://vndb.org/v28443
https://2795.sv02.novelgame.jp/game/2795/GomenneOtakukun/

Needless to say you can also filter through language to find English translated vns in the same way. Let's see the stuff we can find.

It's that time again I come here and tell you this is a beautiful game. You might start to assume I will praise any game I play but that's not true. What happens is I play through several VNs before committing to one. I would have played maybe 10 to 20 min of 4 or 5 titles before finding one I feel like reading all the way to the end and of course I'll review only those that I actually read all the way through. This is the latest one, Happy Dream Syndrome. This is the type of game that makes me wonder why nobody played it and most importantly, why there are so many boring plots for anime each season when they have stories like this lying around the internet. I don't get it. The other 4 guys who played this on yt all loved it and it's 5 stars on novelgame.

The art for this is pretty good. It has its own style going for it and it makes the characters very memorable. It doesn't look like a VN backed by a professional studio of course, but it is still pretty good and it has more charm and strength than a lot of generic 'highly professional' illustrations I see out there on VNs. The music is composed of 3 piano medleys. Not the best but they really work for this game. I had some problems with the gameplay though. Game has a couple of bugs and at least for me it's broken on Firefox. About 2 hours in there's a small animation scene and it doesn't matter what I try, I can't make the clip to load and run on firefox. Had to switch to Chrome and redo a huge portion of the game to get where I was. About 15 minutes of skipping. Free games though, you can't really complain. Lots of routes to take here. In fact I ended up cheating and looking up how to get one of the endings, then I regretted doing it because it was really obvious and the only thing I hadn't tried, despite being obvious.

The story begins with a trope I really like and I think everyone who played a lot of rpgmaker games back in its heyday have a soft spot for it as well. The protagonist wakes up with no idea who he is or where he's at. He lost all memory of his past and it's on the same level of wisdom about the world he's in as we the players starting this game for the first time. Protagonist memory loss must be the single most popular trope for RPG Maker games for the first decade of the 2000s fo

Usually I'll stick with the longest VNs available on novelgame but this one caught my interest while I was browsing the latest reviews people post in there. This is a super short but really cool read. Reversal is a horror/mystery type of game and really straight forward in its approach. It couldn't be any other way since each run takes only 15 minutes to go through. 4 endings so it probably wouldn't take you more than an hour to see everything this has to offer. The cool thing about this one is the fair amount of animations it has and they're really well made as well. Characters look very cute and that's always a plus. The horror is very effective visually and the world of Reversal, though only shown briefly, is interesting enough I think that many other games could take place in it.

It all takes place in a single evening when the recently transferred student, Kirishima, abducts you and 2 other students. She reveals herself to be a demon hunter about to go on an expedition on the edges of town to vanquish a ghost hideout. Akari is very enthusiastic about it because she thinks it is going to be just like in the anime she watches all the time. Yu on the other hand doesn't believe Kirishima for a second. Then it's up to you to decide how to proceed.

Perhaps a bit much for a thread, but given there's both good and bad endings for a route, do you have a tendency read the good ones before the bad, vice versa, or do you avoid bad ends like a coworker who wants your anal virginity?

What is the latest visual novel you bought and do you think it was worth its price?
Alternatively, if you pirate your VNs: What is the latest VN you finished and would you consider paying for it?
>> No. 2226 [Edit]
I think the last VN I cleared was Sanoba Witch. I think it was really nice and comfy, and I liked all the main girls, so I didn't mind paying for it.
I both pirate and buy games depending on what makes it more convenient to play. I like to get some on the Switch if I can because I enjoy portable reading, but all I really have on there right now is Clannad and Gnosia.
>> No. 2303 [Edit]
Kara No Shoujo (first game and the sequel), which I really liked and definitely thought was worth the money. However after playing both I bought Cartagra because it was by the same devs and had some intersecting characters. That turned out to be a hugely disappointing game.

I'm looking for Ayakashi and Ayakashi-H, but don't really feel like spending almost 100 bucks for games from more than a decade ago.

Hello fren, I am here to rant about this normalfag artist endorsed piece of shit vn. This gamu should not be critically acclaimed, it is literally just a shitty harem game, just cause it has one wapanese bitch who is "depressed" doesn' make it anything different. How is this considered a physchological horror game? Is it because of the "heavy" theme of mental health that is barely touched upon and when it is touched upon it is represented in an exponentially unrealistic manner. No matter what anyone says it's just a shitty wapanese vn created by a man who probably wishes he could be Japanese. The only reason it is popular in the mainstream is because of horny digisexual teenagers and lesbian aspie waps who say they like it because of the plot, but know in their hearts that they really like it because "hurr Durr my wapanese wanime gurlfren is kwaii!" Also, I don't give a flying fuck if this thread belongs on /vn/ or the Vidya board, I want it to get more attention so I am putting it here.

Basically it is, but the fans will insist they are totally very different stories despite the tone of DDLC being very, very similar.
At the very least, Kimi to Kanojo puts more effort into writing the characters (DDLC just expects you to instantly feel bad for certain characters despite barely getting to know them as people) and the gimmick ends up hitting harder due to that.
The only praise I can give DDLC is that it's one of few Ren'Py games that takes advantage of it's Python orignis to it's fullest with the file tampering.

Other than those already said, Raising Heart from Nanoha, Zero's helmet from Code Geass and Bonta-kun from Fullmetal Panic. Also I think that little lump down there is the Clannad dango.
The armor in the back looks familiar but I can't quite place it.
>> No. 2279 [Edit]
Adding to >>2278, top left is that character from Moyashimon, far right is Satchii from Dennou Coil

>>2274
I doubt it. I tried looking up the answer afterwards in both Japanese and English, and while I could find various attempts, surprisingly I couldn't find a definitive list anywhere.

Multiple guesses have been made before that the bottom one is the Clannad dango, but the eyes don't match. They look like Pac-Man's eyes, but then the figure lacks Pac-Man's eyebrows. So I don't think either of those are right, unless the design was intentionally modified to be legally distinct or something.

I thought it was Haro from Gundam. Not like the eyes match either, but it's green and roundy.
For some reason there's videogame references too, I can't at least notice the Virtual Boy and Seaman.

Does there exist any copy of the original draft of Mahotsukai no yoru? Of course Nasu never released it, but seeing as he gave copies to several people there should be at least one person both retaining it and recognizing its value.

So in other news, the full translation of the VN will hopefully be available by the end of June assuming the TL group doesn't pull a fast one. I'm a bit surprised that both a French and Spanish translation are already finished to my knowledge, I have to wonder why exactly the English TL community is so slow? Did they get lazy because of how much anime and manga are translated by companies or dubbed over?
