    I also kinda wish we could get a divorce case, or any other case. It's kinda boring that it's all murders

    Well, I do intend to finish Apollo, and I have investigations borrowed from my brother as well, so I'll try that one out too. but unless I get a sudden craving for AA, I don't think I'll be buying the 3DS game.

    I guess the subtlety is where it's at, but on the other hand, I also adore Danganronpa and the characters there actually benefit from starting out as caricatures. I think the difference there is that cohesive narrative that just grips me.

    I kind of have a similar experience with Fire Emblem Awakening. A lot of people adore it to bits, and I'm just kinda meh about it, and the only thing I really loved about it was the ability to form relationships between the characters. And I also feel bad for not getting the hype, only this time it was Skyblade and not my brother who urged me to play it and whom I feel like I'm disappointing.

    It's still kind of surprising to me that this turned out to be successful in the West, since it doesn't really fit into any niche that has a presence in here. Sometimes you just can't predict these things, i guess.

    I'm actually interested in The Great Ace Attorney but, ironically enough, it looks like it won't get localized. oh well. I'll be sticking to my Danganronpas and Zero Escapes

    So tell me, since you're our local VN specialist. Explain to me the phenomenon of Ace Attorney. Now, I'm not trying to diss anyone for liking this game, since I don't really dislike it. i just want to know. To analyze. Cause that's what I do.

    So my experience with Ace Attorney is that I played the Phoenix Wright trilogy and started Apollo Justice and just... Every one of them was a chore, even if the endings to all games were pretty satisfying. I hated the puns, I did not enjoy most of the jokes, and the characters failed to grip me at best and were infuriating at worst (looking at YOU, Ema Sky ). I also don't care for the episodic format - maybe it's just me enjoying cohesive narratives more? Because it's not like I dislike VNs - Zero Escape and Dangan Ronpa are some of my favorite series, and I really dig the concept, so what gives? Is it the aggressively defensive fanbase? Is it the fact that my brother really wanted me to play (and like) the game? So maybe the question should be not why people like this game, but why I don't like it?

    Seriously, what's the reason for its success?

    Thank you that was so very generous of you! I wish I could afford to gift you something back, but unfortunately it will have to wait a little bit. I really appreciate it though and I'll play it soon~

    You've Been Chosen!

    Yes! You've been selected randomly to receive presents in this year's EoFF Secret Santa '15! "But wait, I didn't take part," you may be asking. That's precisely the point! Presents are for everyone, and whether or not you took part, the organisers felt that everyone should have the opportunity to receive thoughtful, electronic presents.

    You can read more about the event here; the big reveal is today at 7:00PM GMT! Don't forget about it!

    Merry Christmas!

    Yay Tokyo School Life! I doubt you'll like it as much as I did but hopefully you'll like it xD Gaokao is hard tho. Try to balance school and life and get a low score of 505 on a test. Restart, study like a madman to the point of near fatigue, still get a 505 !!!

    planetarian is pretty cheap and it's on Steam too so I can probably swing that one soon and add it to the list! Thank you !

    Gaokao is pretty good so far if you wanted to try it! There's like 50 something endings and there's no way I could get them all. Maybe 2 of them if I'm lucky. So I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts about different endings and stuff. Not that you need to of course, just if you felt like trying a new VN

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.

SubaHibi set for late August release

by Karifean on 07-04-2017 at 01:03 PM

So this probably won't be relevant for most people here since non-PG and all, but SubaHibi, one of the most hyped visual novels in recent memory, is set to be released in English in late August.

The method of release is kind of strange, ngl. Apparently they offer the first chapter of the game in all ages on Steam for 30 bucks and then provide

As of just now, Little Busters! English Edition is on Steam Greenlight. While the release date is a vague "2017" it's pretty cool to see *something* happening nonetheless.

Higurashi Ch. 5 Meakashi released on Steam

by Karifean on 04-29-2017 at 12:36 AM
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:
