    I got To The Moon and If My Heart Had Wings since that one was almost 70% off~ Started To The Moon, haven't played much, but it's already a very charming game!

    Also my Grandia II review should be up Monday

    I'll add that one to the log, then!

    You think it's any good?

    Just feeling weird about a situation I'm sort of going through. I don't feel right addressing it publicly, so that's why my post was a bit vague. Sorry about that, I know that can be a bit irritating when people do that. I'll be alright.

    Nope, only 1 and 2. I'll need to look into those

    To put it more simply - the twist being that there is no twist is a great if done well, which I think it was here

    I just like how the game goes about twists - from an outside angle, making it something completely different, rather than something that would play into an expected resolution. The impostor reveal didn't disappoint me simply because I thought it was incredibly original that something so intriguing is just played as something so minor, especially since that was actually the impostor's M.O. - he was completely unremarkable on his own, so no one really knew who he was.

    But yeah, we all take in media differently and that's awesome

    Well, the first thing is Monokuma stating that they all lost their memories of their time together at school. The player is lead to think that it's impossible - rehashing the big plot twist from the first game would be so lame. But they do just that, except it makes sense in the context of the universe and makes total sense as it's not played up in the slightest. The we have the first victim - in both games its someone that's built up to be incredibly important for the rest of the game, but that completely changes once they bite it. Additionally, the impostor was built up even more as it was a returning character, but not only is that expectation defied by him playing no role, even the "big reveal" that he's an impostor and not Byakuya is just hand waved instead of being the big deal you'd expect him to be, as he's one of the most important players in the first game. Then there's the suicide you'd expect but this time around, the cuisine victim isn't labeled the killer because of a technicality where this isn't actually a suicide, and your Kirigiri stand-in that you'd expect to stay with you till the end, just like Kyoko, dies after that penultimate case. There's more examples on TV tropes but those are the ones that I remember standing out the most, atm

Interesting Routes: Aqua

by Karifean on 11-30-2017 at 09:21 PM
There's something truly magical about Himawari that I didn't really realize back when I first read it but have come to appreciate about it more and more.

Himawari has an enforced reading order, something you don't see a lot in galge without a strong plot focus. However, like other visual novels such as Fate/Stay Night can use it to drive the plot and themes forward in parallel tales, so too does Himawari use it to give us ample

Dies Irae Review

by Karifean on 08-03-2017 at 12:32 AM
Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ is a visual novel created by Light. It was one of the most renowned JP-only VNs before finally getting a localization in June of this year.

Come, gather and bear witness to my opera, now in the making.

Its script is the height of cliché, I am forced to admit. And yet...

Its actors are of the finest fold; beyond exquisite.

Thus, I believe you will find it enthralling.

Umineko: Episode 4 Tea Party

by Karifean on 07-09-2017 at 08:57 PM
You talk too much. All you have to do is honestly say 'I'll kill you'.

For those that don't know, the climaxes of Episodes 4, 5 and 6 are my 3 favorite moments in Umineko (which also makes them my 3 favorite moments in fiction overall), all for their own individual reasons. I've been dying to talk about them for a while. I figured I'd start with the Episode 4 Tea Party, quite possibly the greatest example of Ryukishi's writing skill of them all.
