bro what are your 10s

I forgot one thing. Don't play the remake version!! It looks so like a generic modern moege, very soulless design. Play the original even if you have to go through hell installing it https://ameblo.jp/yu-xpe5995/entry-12472220339.html

Ikr. I mean your username is alucard, can't be edgier than that. Also pretty obvious from your favorite anime you like psychological things. I'm more a slice-of-life guy, my choice for favorite Kon Satoshi film should tell enough. It's pretty much the same for visual novels.

I see. Parfait is surely better than Damekoi in that aspect, you should check that one out as well. The general consesus in the western community is that it's slightly weaker than Damekoi in terms of prose fluidity, and less polished being another WA2 prototype. I used to think so but now I agree with the japanese (EGS), it's the superior story. I may be a little biased because I used to work at a cafe myself. Parfait just hit too close to home. Rea and Rikako, but particularly Rea is my favorite Maruto heroine barring Setsuna. Her route is short but it checks all the boxes I look for in a charage. I don't really care about the other 4 heroines though (6 if you count the PS2 ver). If you're wondering, yeah, 2 good routes is enough for me to call something masterpiece, even though the rest is terrible. Those 2 routes have the most natural progression anyway, so they are the only "canon" story to me. The rest only serve as "what if" story. That's a mindset I always come with whenever I play galge and such. I only need to find one good thing to like and I'll ignore the bad part and treat it as non-canon. I'm a positive person :)

Parfait isn't as strong as Damekoi in terms of theming nor does it have any overarching plot. But when it comes to romance, few are as sweet as this. The routes are short and not so conclusive though, I like it that way. If you want to see lengthy love story that covers even post marriage life, you can read tone work's eroge.

I don't remember any scene from KnS1 now, it's been years since I read it. That's a fair point. You're gonna like KnS2 then. It's a huge improvement in nearly every aspect.
I see, you liking it might also have to do with your preference and taste for edgy and horror stuff, which I'm personally not a fan of. I'm just never impressed by those, no matter how good or mind-blowing they are. I may have to reread KnS2 though because I loved one of the important revelations concerning a certain character and it made me want to revisit the good old days in the prologue.

And wow, did I unintentionally suggest Kara no Shoujo to you haha. Aren't the ero scenes there very forced, random, and unnecessary? With how you react to Damekoi, how could you like this one?
Edocchi Oct 28, 2022 11:21 AM
I asked because I saw your vndb. Well, that's eroge for you. Unfortunately the traits you've just described also exist in most eroge, you'll encounter the same thing if you keep reading. You may even hate WA2 for what will happen in coda. But really? Damekoi lower than a 3 hours nukige?
I've seen too much bad stuff that even a gross one wouldn't make me budge. I'm here for Maruto's writing and he delivers it with style. That's the ONLY thing that matters when I'm reading few names like Maruto and Ou Jackson. They are so good on a micro level that the plot doesn't matter anymore. I think it's pretty much impossible to dislike their works unless you just simply don't like writing as an art in the first place.

I actually don't have a favorite route in Damekoi, which is weird considering my high score. I always have at least 1 favorite chapter/route for every one of my highly-rated game but Damekoi gets away with that. My recent reread proved that Damekoi doesn't need that to have a high reread value. But you definitely need a certain mindset to appreciate it, though. I wouldn't recommend this to people your age because it might be offensive and not relatable at all.
I can easily ignore the bad part as if it's nonexistent if the good part is good enough. I think you might want to get used to that. Unlike anime/manga/LNs, VNs sometimes have "optional content" like h-scenes, side routes, side quest, all these things are often perfunctory. It's kinda annoying when the main girl's route is perfect but the side chicks' are half-assed. Or when the route is good but the h-scene is "skippable". I can get over all that now, but I'd prolly still mention it as my only pet peeve if someone asked.

Anyway, I was joking about that Himeo's ending. You don't need to tell me, lol. Of course I knew it the moment my friend told me. It's called a "bonus" or "extra" for a reason. No need to take it/react to it that seriously. It's meant to be taken as a meme. I can understand getting frustrated over the heroines' anticlimactic ending, but this one is clearly just Maruto messing around with his own work and having fun. This happens in other eroge too. That's why it's my favorite medium. It doesn't have any restriction, the writer has all the freedom in the world to make whatever the fuck they want.

Thanks, my man! See you back in Discord when I am back in France =)

That was likely. The music is good. Though listening to the original version of some old Leaf songs does feel weird to me. I don't know if it's Yonezawa's voice or the music or both, WA2 made those songs 100x better, almost feels like they turned into completely different songs. Routes OP for example, sung by Nakayama Arisa. It's nice, but compared to Setsuna's version it just feels soulless.
Edocchi Aug 6, 2022 9:31 AM
Both. But the one I finished was the ps3 ver. Definitely is a game from the 90's, for better and for worse. How Maruto was able to gather inspiration from it to make something that was that good is beyond me.

What are your favourite songs from white album 2⁇
_Arc4n1_ Aug 5, 2022 8:05 AM
Hilarious choice for corpse party, also higher number than I thought. They should clear fata/Umi/Suba fr! 1!11!!!
Edocchi Aug 5, 2022 8:04 AM
I played Mitoko last so I did not see the difference. Either way I don't really care about small details that require some sort of trick. You see I didn't even know there was bonus scene because I didn't use any guide for this. I'm not a fan of that kind of touch in eroge. You have no idea how frustrated I was playing Kara no Shoujo lol. But that one is a mystery vn so I don't feel right to criticize that part.

Hmm, I can not think of one. Being retro or having retro aesthetic doesn't make something nostalgic for me.
