  1. Higurashi Ch. 5 Meakashi released on Steam

    by , 04-29-2017 at 12:36 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    So for anyone following this series, or interested in following it, Higurashi Chapter 5 - also known as Meakashi - was just released on Steam. I felt like announcing this here because it's my favorite arc in Higurashi and one where I feel Ryukishi's talent in writing characters really comes out for the very first time.

    You can find it here: ...

  4. My Current VN Tier List

    by , 03-22-2017 at 12:02 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    I thought about making another Top 10 list with VNs I've read or changed opinion on since my last one, but I don't think it would be particularly representative. So hey, why not make a ranking of literally *all* VNs I've ever read? Sounds like fun!

    That being said, some of these novels are way too close to one another and hard to differentiate in how I feel about them. So I'm going to be doing this in tiers. I'll still try to sort the VNs in each individual tier from worst to best, ...

  5. Video Game Fashions: DOA Part 3!

    Today we are doing Marie Rose, Momiji, Naotora, and Nyotengu!

    First for Marie Rose!

    This is her classic outfit, which I mostly like for the boots. It's a cute enough dress, though.

    One again, I am a fan of asymmetry, roses, and the colour pink and it's all combined here! Not the best, but I still like it.

  6. Video Game Fashions: DOA Part 2!

    We're back with some more DOA outfits~ Today we will be looking at outfits for Kasumi, Kokoro, and Leifang

    Starting with Kasumi, we have a variant on her classic outfit.

    Her classic outfit is white and blue, which is nice, but this one matches her hair ribbon better, I find. There's also a white and red/pink variation as well.

    Speaking of which, this ...
  7. Video Game Fashions: DOA Part 1!

    So for all of DOA's shortcomings, it has a ton of outfits. And I like outfits. Some of them are terrible, some are adorable. So for now I will be talking about some of my fav Dead or Alive outfits!

    NOTE that some of these are NSFW because... well it is DOA. I will be sure to spoiler those for you.

    I will start this edition with the characters of Ayane, Helena, and Hitomi!

    First up, Ayane!

    One ...
  8. A Journey of Seagulls - Episode 1

    by , 03-02-2017 at 01:13 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    This is going to be a series of posts forming a commentary on the journey of reading Umineko. While I may talk about themes more relevant to Umineko on a greater scale, I intend to keep this series spoiler-free beyond the episode I'm talking about, so you're completely safe to read this if you've read up to the episode in the title yourself.

    Starting with Episode 1: And Then There Were No Seagulls, or something along those lines. At least until it's not anymore.

    Umineko OST - Ride on ...

  9. Hey, let's see a movie.

    So if you don't know, I love movies. They're just a visual representation of stories and it's neat when you think of the different ways characters or aspects of the movies are portrayed.

    The last movie I saw was "A Cure for Wellness", it was a psychological thriller that had little cool tidbits that you wouldn't get until you already got it. Make sense? It's a great movie when you really sit back and think, was this all real or a delusion?

    The next movie ...
