  1. VNs in the Steam Summer Sale 2016!

    by , 06-24-2016 at 11:31 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    For anyone looking for a good time to pick up some VNs, look no further! As you probably know the Steam Summer Sale is upon us so a massive number of games are reduced; and VNs are no exception.

    Link to full list of visual novels with reduced prices

    My personal recommendations for longer novels are CLANNAD (character-focused highschool romantic slice of life) and Root Double (sci-fi escape mystery). As for medium length novels, I recommend G-senjou no Maou (crime thriller), ...
  2. Fighting Evil by Moonlight...

    So tonight I finally broke out a Christmas present I received several years ago that I never watched. Partly because for the first time in a long time, I felt ready for it. I acquired a DVD set that featured the entire DiC dub of the first two seasons of Sailor Moon, so basically the original dub, not the new one. Original Western score, Sailor Says, and the whole "Serena and Darien" name changes.

  3. Video Game Fashions: Senran Kagura

    For all of the games faults, it sure does have some cute outfits. Here are some of my favourites! Some are unlocked, some are DLC, and others you start with. I only have 2 DLC though because cost, so in the future I am sure I will have more cute outfits.


    I like the contrast of this one. It covers a lot up top and is very complex and fancy, but then it cuts short and you get the socks and the bandage and everything. It works well together, ...

  4. A Rant on Eroge

    by , 06-06-2016 at 12:56 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Oh boy, let's make a blog post about this because what could possibly go wrong...

    There's an aspect of visual novels I've always just mostly ignored and glossed over in my year and a half of blogging on here. It's something I always fear of touching upon since I don't want people to look at me like I'm a weirdo. But then again I feel like it's something I should address at some point. And that is the rather close relationship between visual novels and erotic content.

    (The preview pictures contain spoilers, especially the last 3)

    So it seems MangaGamer has decided on releasing Umineko four arcs at a time, with the question arcs being released on July 9th!


    The pachislot art will take some getting used to for me (look at those eyes), but chances are the UmiTweak patch - meaning PS3 art ...

  6. Character Appreciation: Tiara



    Today I will be talking about Tiara, a playable character from Fairy Fencer F. Tiara is an 18 year old girl and a fencer, meaning she can weirld Fury's, which are basically weapons that have the spirit of fairy partners inside of them. Don't worry about it. Also there will be spoilers if you want to play the game.



    Tiara, like the rest of the cast, is kind of a ...

    Shikkoku no Sharnoth (Sharnoth of the Deepest Black) -What a Beautiful Tomorrow- is a visual novel developed by Liar-soft. It's the third entry in their 'Steampunk' series but can be read just fine without prior exposure to the other entries.
