  1. AIR Dream Arc Thoughts

    by , 04-22-2015 at 11:52 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Having completed Dream and now moving on to Summer, I felt I could at least post my thoughts on it, and maybe compare it to the anime a bit.

    Dream consists of three character routes; Minagi's, Kano's and Misuzu's, and I went through them in this order.



    Minagi Tohno

    I didn't really remember much about her character from the anime, so a lot of this was 'new' to me. Minagi is a very quiet girl and doesn't ...

    Do you like this town? I really really love it. But nothing can stay the same forever. Fun things, happy things... they'll all eventually go away. Even so, can you keep loving this place?

    Rewrite

  5. AIR Common Route Thoughts

    AIR's common route is quite entertaining, I must say. So far it has done a good job creating a potentially interesting setting for the character routes.

    First off, the soundtrack is amazing. Need I mention Natsukage? So damn good. Or the opening Tori no Uta, IMO one of Key's best openings, music-wise at least? Yeah, it's great.

    Yukito is a great protagonist. It's not often that Key protagonists actually have an ...

    So Kazamatsuri.org, a Key community site I frequent, is having a bookclub on Key's second visual novel: AIR. As I have not read AIR, and also because this bookclub sounds pretty fun, I will be reading along.



    So here's how this'll work. Over two weeks the participants will read through a particular route in AIR and discuss it, and at the end of said two weeks there will also be a podcast about the route in question. There ...
