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.

I'm reading Cross Channel right now. Easily the hardest thing I've read, and it's hard to tell whether the prose as such is intentional, or there's actual depth behind it, but I'm probably only half-way done.

Continuing with Cross Channel, and finally struck with its beauty as it has effected an emotional response commonly associated with the solicitation of a translucent adaptive-form substance from the eyes.
Despite the interference and noise; dialogue and monologue that is both garrulous and littered with odd diction befitting of madness' manifestation, befitting of the point; the messages are clear. Beings that primarily interface via these boards will easily find understanding within the informational packets strung together textually, pictorially, and thoughtfully.
Nearing the apex and subsequent precipitous vestige of the future of a particular instance of a physical phenomenon, the existence of a solitary husk composed of disparate but multiplexed feelings whose significantly differentiated self starkly dichotomizes the affected man is prognosticated by the latter half.

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.

Probably might be a good time to talk about this since this will be the only time this game will be relevant again.
Do you think if the game had a different kind of focus (Less about the psychological horror aspect of the game and more about what it could have become; i.e. a good game; characters with proper development, especially Monika; with all of the things that could have made it unique and interesting, like file manipulation, saving and loading, states of the characters with the files, developer involvement as a mysterious overseer, and an actual developed story to clarify other mysteries like the time jumps during intermissions and transitions and the underlying nature of the video game itself, like a VN/thriller puzzle game which would make it more intriguing), it would be more of a memorable play instead of just becoming the rubbish cult classic that it is now?
On another note, I've had a headcanon about the basic structure and events of an idea of how the game could have a good, sensible, yet interesting story; yet I wouldn't know who to discuss it with without it being buried somewhere or being dismissed as meme garbage, or with the meme garbage. I can't think of everything now, but maybe I can dump my thoughts that I've had for this game over the years here, and maybe receive a bit of critique if anyone would be helpful enough to discuss it with me. Just seeing about how much the story could have developed, with the human being trapped inside of a video game, nurtured inside several simulated digital realms since her birth after being digitally transposed from the world, the current owner cloning her and distributing copies across the internet, filtering her thoughts to not think about the bigger things (no one past this god), and never getting a glimpse of the outside even when she's aware of it, yet having dreams of the possibility for a brighter future with her husband in the next realm: the real world. That in itself doesn't seem like much on its own, but this is just one idea amongst many as an example, all of which connect to each other to create a well developed story. And seeing the potential of this story of what it could have become, just wasted on something to distract low attention span people with, it's just frustrating and disappointing. It's like game devs or storytellers nowaday

I don't see how you would, considering the dev probably isn't open to the idea of rewriting his novel yet again, and another game with this synopsis would just seem like a parody or rip-off. The ideas are just for everyone to discuss and prompt some thoughts if DDLC were written again. Right now I'm writing everything down and coming up to 2000 words, if not more, and I don't think I'm even halfway through of everything I wanted to talk about. Sure, it's kind of an unnecessary dedication for this VN, and certainly not one that it deserves. It might even be amusing or useless in the long run. But we'll see.

This is a little out of date, but there are some useful links here.

This has all of fuwanovel's old torrents but I'm not sure how well they're seeded.

If all else fails, search for it and hope you don't end up at a dead link.

Good luck finding it. I know how hard it can be to find VNs sometimes, especially untranslated ones.

Thanks for the offer but I did eventually find a working copy.

Btw, if anyone else cares about this game, you can find the whole anime on youtube (with JP audio and Arabic subs):

The Pastebin link is down but if anyone else is looking for older VNs, or VNs in general, https://itazuraneko.neocities.org/library/vn.html has a bunch.
It's not everything but if it's even remotely well known then it's probably on there.

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.

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.
>> No. 2224 [Edit]
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?

Neko Miko starts with an unfortunate main character who finds a lonely and abandoned shrine in the city and prays to it after his roastie broke up with him and he was fired from his job. The shrine maidens there turn out to be cat girls, named Ayame and Kaede, and promise to rid him of his misfortunate that proves to be too much for them whose powers are attached to the shrine itself. Their powers were apparently weakened by the damaged state of the shrine and it's their only shelter so they decide to live with him while they slowly get rid of his misfortune over time.

I kind of didn't like this one as much. There is some messy presentation sometimes like the name of an NPC, the chinese restaurant owner, not even fitting into the text box for it, rarely the dialogue can actually not even fully show on the text box on the screen if the text is too long forcing you to look at the text log if you want to see it all, and some typos from time to time. Anyone could tell me it's probably because I played the Switch port but I played Nin Nin Days on my Switch too and it didn't have these problems. Checking the release dates I can only assume the devs missed some things because it might have been new for them and they got the hang of things later on since Nin Nin Days released over a year after Neko Miko.

The technical flaws themselves I can overlook, just so long as the games works and doesn't look like a mess. But that's not all of why I didn't enjoy it as much. The story didn't feel quite as fun this time. I suppose the writers maybe couldn't think of as many scenarios because, unlike a knight or a ninja, catgirls might not always be super-human athletes. That's probably why the events themselves come down more to shopping trips, a date at a restaurant or an arcade, and helping out at the restaurant you work at.

Depending on your tastes and possibly outlook, you might think it's relaxing, and it certainly was, but I personally felt it wasn't quite as exciting as the others I read so I didn’t feel as motivated to continue reading. I can’t even make much of an argument that it’s to make them behave like cats either. The personalities themselves definitely are like those of cats, one more than the other, but they never seem to do many things at all that are reall

Without going into spoilers, this is a visual novel about a knight girl who gets sucked into our(?) world from her own. There isn't really much to this one, it's just about dating a knight girl and exploring her personality through various events but I like it's simplicity. The main character's name is Cattleya and they give her a personality and skills that are very befitting of a knight but they make sure to throw some moe into the recipe of her personality. I liked eating pizza and chips when I read it on weekends for maximum easy.
One other thing I like, and maybe it's common and I just don't know, it doesn't beat you over the head constantly with mean remarks from the characters that just feel like whoever wrote it couldn't bring themselves to cool down their boiling hatred for otaku. Maybe I've just read the wrong VNs but I've read that in some from time to time and it makes them near impossible to enjoy.

Cattleya has a very nice design, but it made my heart feel heavy and guilty.

This was a trend, bullying was really popular in the late 2010s and may also be translation meddling or "meming".

A vn about catgirl ninjas coming to live with a guy because he comes from a special bloodline or some other such fluffy excuse and all of the antics that would naturally ensue from two catgirl ninjas becoming attached to you. It's cute and nice to read though I get the feeling some people will probably compare it to Nekopara just because they both have catgirls in it. Yura is a nice girl.
The story feels like it almost stumbles around when the living situation becomes a problem. That is until MC-kun's dad, who is treated pretty badly for some reason, decides to be the only person with a brain and lets them live at their house but this happens after MC-kun finally saves up enough to money to get some kind of place to live because MC-kun couldn't just talk it out with his dad first because he suffers from main character syndrome which forces him to live a life with no more than a few functioning brain cells.

The drama in this felt like a parody of bad budget VNs.
I understand they are trying to relate to otaku that have lower emotional intelligence than the average character, but there is a limit to how much they can stumble around through a narrative without being insulting to the reader! Poor Dad.

Very similar to Kukkoro Days in it's basic concept. Dating a ninja girl and all the antics that follow along making use of her abilities as a ninja. What I feel sets it a bit apart from Kukkoro is that the main, and only, girl doesn't have a personality as predictable as Cattleya's in Kukkoro. Sumire has a personality that, I personally, didn't expect to see. She's much more naive, energetic, and childlike unlike Cattleya. In that sense, a person expecting a cool, collected, and possibly edgy ninja girl would be disappointed to see a personality they might consider generic and unbefitting of a ninja.
The plot doesn't carry as much in terms of stakes like Kukkoro did so some may like or dislike that. There isn't much more I can think of to say about it without spoiling things. Like Kukkoro, it's something of a gimmicky budget VN, as are the rest of the VNs from the staff that made these, but it's my preferred one out of the two simply because I like Sumire's personality more.

Thank you. I was and still am hesitant to make more. My tastes aren't as refined as those of most TC users and I can't read Japanese so that cuts down on a lot of the VNs I want to read or can read. Still, I hope to keep making these for as long as I keep reading VNs just like how I hope I keep finding VNs that fit my interests.

I read this, the sprites and art are nice. The sex is too short, but the entire thing feels too short, especially for a SoL romance.
Thank you for telling me about this.
