  1. CLANNAD Revisited

    by , 02-24-2016 at 03:24 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    It seems someone has been hijacking and misusing my blog by making a post unrelated to visual novels, though if Umineko's taught me anything it's not to mess with bored witches, so I'll leave it there...

    As for myself, I've got something bigger to talk about.


    So in case you didn't know, I spent the better part of the last three months rereading CLANNAD, my first visual novel. Technically Ace Attorney was my first, ...
  2. Root Double Kickstarter

    by , 01-07-2016 at 09:20 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    I felt like fans of the Infinity or Zero Escape series might be interested in this.

    Conceptually it's very reminiscent of those two series (not to mention Nakazawa being the director again) except that instead of 'just' being an escape story, it's more of a rescue story this time. But apparently you get to view it unfold both from the outside as well as from the inside. Sounds ...
  3. OOC Monologue

    by , 01-05-2016 at 06:13 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Something sweet and motivating to start off the new year with.

    (I think I've obscured it enough so as to not spoil where it's from, but if you recognize the style early on and you haven't completed this VN yet, proceed with caution.)

  4. Censoring and Visual Novels

    by , 12-18-2015 at 02:51 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Seems like censoring in games has become quite a controversial issue recently. I mostly see people vehemently claiming that censoring is bad practice and should not be a thing. And I gotta be honest, I feel it's not quite that simple.

    This article is a bit old, being from mid-2013, but this has been an issue in the visual novel localizing scene for years now and it STILL ...

    What happens when Hatoful Boyfriend meets Phoenix Wright in 19th century Paris?

  6. CLANNAD First Re-Impressions

    by , 11-28-2015 at 08:39 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    You know I was somewhat anxious going into CLANNAD. Not too long ago I crowned it my #3 favorite visual novel, but really, it's been two years since I read it by now. It was the first visual novel I had ever read that I truly identified as a member of its medium. So I was slightly afraid that it turns out my perception of CLANNAD was just heavily colored, that since I had no standards regarding visual novels back then, it might fail to hold up now, not actually being as good as I remember.

    Rose Guns Days is a visual novel developed by 07th Expansion, written by Ryukishi07.



    Overview

    Rose Guns Days takes place in post-WWII Japan where, in an alternate history, Japan's culture is slowly being eradicated by the overwhelming influx of American and Chinese residents and poor treatment and ensuing poverty the native Japanese have to endure.

  9. CLANNAD Steam Release on November 23rd

    by , 11-13-2015 at 11:57 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    The CLANNAD Steam page has gone online and the release date has been revealed to be November 23rd!


    This also means that the Kazamatsuri Bookclub will be starting on that very day. If you're interested in participating - which I wholeheartedly recommend doing - mark your calendars. The bookclub does encourage reading at your own pace, but it'd be nice if you could at least find the few hours a week to read the route we're currently focusing on.

    It'd ...
