    The game is 20% off during its launch week, putting it at a respectable price of around half that of CLANNAD's, even though the two are quite similar in terms of sheer content value (though Little Busters contains ...

  4. Harmonia has been released!

    by , 09-23-2016 at 03:47 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    Key fans rejoice, a brand new Key visual novel has been released! Not localized, but actually released for the first time. And I know what you're thinking, well I can't read Japanese so I can't read it, right? Wrong, because for whatever reason Key/Visual Art's decided to release the game in English before it's even out in Japan!

    Tomoyo After is a spinoff to CLANNAD, a continuation of Tomoyo's character route, and it's my #3 favorite visual novel, just barely above CLANNAD itself. The original version had adult content in it, but this version is all-ages friendly ...

    So after quite a lengthy silence following the initial localization announcement, Tomoyo After - the CLANNAD spin-off that continues Tomoyo's route - is finally on Steam Greenlight. It's set to be released sometime in Summer 2016. If you're interested in the game or just want to support it, consider giving it a vote

  7. April 1st Update

    by , 04-02-2016 at 09:40 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    The first of April has come and gone, and as some of you might know, a whole bunch of Japanese companies seem to be under the impression that that is the perfect date to announce important new projects and updates. Real ones as well as fake ones. Thankfully April 2nd has exposed the fakes and we are left with only the reals now. So what did we get?

  8. Interesting Routes: Yuiko Kurugaya

    by , 03-23-2016 at 03:36 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    Every now and then you come across a character route that stands out above the others. A route that breaks conventions and does something interesting you wouldn't normally expect. One such route is Kurugaya's from Little Busters.

    Overall the character routes in Little Busters are rather formulaic. Boy hangs out with girl, girl runs into problems, boy solves them, happy end. Basic stuff. Although Little Busters gets away with ...
  9. 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, ...
  10. 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.
