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 haven't read any VNs in a while but the last one I made progress in is NekoMiko and so far I don't like it.
The heroines this time aren't quite as nice. The black one likes to make negative assumptions about you, which start reasonable at first given the context, but also insults you sometimes. Both of them are quick to abandon you because you didn't buy them food even after you took them shopping for clothes, books, and games. If you choose the choice that makes them abandon you then it gets dark and they stay with you because they're scared of being attacked or something but that doesn't change the fact that they walked out on you even though they are the ones who decided to stay with you to get rid of your misfortune. If anything, you could probably say it makes it worse.
I am still very early in the VN but with characters like this I'm not as eager to continue like I was with Kukkoro or Nin Nin. The scenarios aren't as fun either, which I was fine with given the context where they are basically homeless because the shrine they live in and gave them power was falling apart. I'm assuming they will get better but like I said, the characters don't make me eager to see the rest. Anybody could say that Kukkoro or Nin Nin were probably budget VNs made purely for wish fulfillment but despite the fact that they are probably right they were at least fun VNs and didn't make me feel like whoever wrote the script hates otaku, a pet peeve I voiced in my Kukkoro post. Maybe I'm just making a big deal over nothing but it's harder to enjoy something with uncaring or ill-intentioned characters that interact with you.
I think the characters are written the way they are so that they might be more like actual cats in personality but it comes at the expense of my enjoyment and it just reminds me of 3d. Or maybe it's to appeal to masochists or something. Also I'm not sure how or why but something about this one feels a little phoned in compared to the other ones. Like the staff didn't try as hard this time. Maybe that's just me.
I'll read the rest someday since I feel like I have to make a post to /vn/ about it and I did spend money on it too but that day might not be soon.

I'd be interested in whether the reasons as to why the girls become affable or ingratiate themselves with the MC is justifiable or sensible. Because if so, then their initial, untenable behavior makes for some nice progression. (As an aside, a VN where you train a set of gyaru to be pleasant has potential.)

I don't see the point finishing something you don't like. After all, you spent something in the ballpark of $10, right?

I'm "reading" a Nurse Witch Komugi VN. While it is in visual novel format, it really feels more like a lost episode of the anime. It's fully voiced and there's no narration. Definitely a must if you like that anime, it's great fanservice.

I'm not the biggest fan of her personality so far but damn, aren't she cute in this and the following H-scenes.

Didn't know this existed.

I do like the moe-gauge, although I should have researched this before starting because apparently you will get your taste graded at the end:

Currently replaying Kanon for the nostalgia, forever a classic.

I'm probably to cranky and old to enjoy this (now resolved) conflict, but this is still pretty cute.

I'm conflicted about this bipolar imouto-like childhood friend. She would be perfect without all that jealousy.

The second and final hill to climb was predictable but cute. Not sure if I care about the other heroines to actually finish the VN in totality. They're all missing the ❝ですわ❞ I love so much.

But that's what makes her cute, right?

I needed something set in Fall and Winter, so I chose Bokuten. It's alright, but the common routes' chapters didn't make me feel anything--except the last one. I laughed pretty hard when the girl's craving for cock lead her to have an orgy with hobos. Ended up on Naruko's route, and the big reveal of the red thread of fate and the angels' mechanics is stupid as it doesn't make sense to me. How does anybody stay married? Finally, the choices that lead to some of the branching are odd.

Naruko's endings left me somewhat empty inside. I had assumed that a loophole would be found to resolve things, but instead one must choose between two conclusions that come with their own benefits and deficiencies. What's interesting is that the sadder ending could have a potentially brighter future, but perhaps my selective optimism is coming into play.
>> No. 2221 [Edit]
Adding to this, after embarking on another route, and choosing new destinies for the common route's couples, I realized something: why did the disappearance of the red string of fate for these couples not drastically alter reality like it did for the MC and Naruko? This and Aine's complete absence towards the end of Naruko's route seems like two fairly big holes in the script. I feel like I was taken to arbitrarily saddening conclusions.
