    I didn't mean the quirk as in they are more 3-dimensional. That's not really it. I meant from a meta perspective - I think the quirks are executed in a more interesting way. It's different when you use a quick stereotype to create a connection with one of 15 characters, more than half of which will be murdered before you know it, while AA for me doesn't go far beyond the cliches with its characters throughout three games even though they all live. Sure, there's character development, but ironically, I had a much greater connection with the Danganronpa final six after one game than with the AA cast after three games, and that's probably the whole thing just suspends my disbelief better. This is a completely ridiculous situation with kids that are not meant to be written as actual lawyers or anything, for example. In that way, for me, Danganronpa is simply much better than the sum of its parts, while with AA I just like some parts.
  2. That's okay :-D
  3. It was a while back....and I have an insanely long memory. No wonder I have insomnia. Anyway tis fine
  4. I remember discussing Rodland with you once. You played any other Amiga games?

    I'm always happy when someone enjoys my recommendation

    I kind of always compare this game to Ace Attorney as it has similar elements, but really does the things I wish AA did more often. Just don't get me wrong - I don't intend to bash AA, it's just that you know my stance on that game and I like to analyze these things It has incredibly high stakes, the murders actually have a big emotional impact, in spite of the zany atmosphere, the quirky characters are more than just their quirks, and there's one continuous story instead of episodes. Granted, this is all subjective, and like I said, I always enjoyed the conclusions to Ace Attorney games much more than the individual episodes, but I think that, knowing me from the perspective of a creator and consumer of stories, I think you can see why this is much more up my alley

    That makes it kind of a meta-twist Although there were a few false leads in the meantime. You'll be having a review on your blog, right? I can't wait to read it!

    Now I wonder what you'll think of the sequel. Any word on when it's coming out?

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.
