    Kara no Shoujo, or Girl in the Shell, is a visual novel developed by Innocent Grey and localized in English by MangaGamer. Primarily, it's a very dark and suspenseful detective story.


    The story of Kara no Shoujo follows Reiji Tokisaka, a private detective, as he investigates a series of bizarre murders in Tokyo. ...

    Still have a lot more to add/check around in the project. It is in progress, but there's more ideas I'm working into the separate character plot points/story details and such.
  4. Oh look, a new challenge!

    Remember my 365 days thing? I found it very motivational and noticed I was pretty happy doing it, so I took that and made something new!

    This is essentially my 'bucket list' or 'life goals'! I have a bunch of challenges written down that I need to complete. It won't be a daily thing like the other one but I hope it's still fun and gives me the same joy the last one did

    I'm still open for challenge suggestions (1000 is a lot!) ...
  5. Kara no Shoujo First Impressions

    by , 02-22-2015 at 12:23 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Just a few hours ago, I started reading Kara no Shoujo, or "Girl in the Shell" (no relation to Ghost). So far it's shaping up to be a detective story with you actually being expected to investigate and deduce things. It feels a lot like Ace Attorney Investigations. Been a while since I read something with that particular sort of interaction.

    Just noticed that the "no" symbol is written in Katakana. Huh, weird.
  6. Analogue: A Hate Story and Hate Plus Review

    by , 02-20-2015 at 04:00 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    The "Hate" series, consisting of Analogue: A Hate Story and Hate Plus, was written by Christine Love. Both games are very similar in format and plot and have a quite unique way of telling its story.

    Analogue: A Hate Story

    Analogue: A Hate Story is set in a distant future where Earth is far from being the only place where humans live. The protagonist seems to be a bit of a Space Cowboy, doing investigation missions for random sponsors for a living. One such ...
  7. Happy Chinese New Year! (in -EST)

    Happy Lunar New Year, at least in my time zone!

    Moon cakes for all!
  8. Hate Plus... you're kidding, right?

    by , 02-16-2015 at 10:06 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    What... the... smurf...?

    Why would you do that?


    So in a nutshell, Hate Plus thought it was a wonderful idea to be a jerk to fast readers, by having it block itself for TWELVE smurfING HOURS after Day 1 ends until you can continue on to Day 2.


    It's even a smurfing achievement to not skip any of these pointless waiting times over three goddamn playthroughs. ...
  9. Saya no Uta Review

    by , 02-13-2015 at 12:40 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Saya no Uta, in English The Song of Saya, is a visual novel developed by Nitroplus, localized in English by JAST USA. If there was ever a novel that deserved a warning that it's "not for the faint of heart", it would be this one.

    I chose Do not obscure grotesque images so a quick warning; there is gory imagery in this blog post. Honestly, if this is what makes you reconsider reading this novel... you probably ...
  10. Why so serious?

    I could be the president of the US and I would talk to you like you're a teammate. Like I know what's appropriate to say and what's not and when the time arises I can be super serious.

    But lighten up. Stop with the ego shield.
