    December Announcements!

    Maybe they'll go down the line of Requests starting with the ones with the most views. Let's see...Aokana was already announced, Eushully hates localizations so they're out. So it looks like next in line would be Monobeno

    Makina was my favorite but I'm pretty biased if you know what I mean.

    December Announcements!

    Senran Banka definitely looks interesting. Traditional Japanese setting and supernatural themes are very appealing to me.

    Irotoridori no Sekai Announcement

    I'm not a fan of Kickstarters, but I'm curious to see how this will play out. It's still nice that I and other English readers can finally experience the series after so many years.

    Question about Protagonists and being voiced

    Personally, I prefer novels with voiced MCs but like you said, unvoiced allows the reader to transpose himself onto the protagonist more fully. Novels like Steins;Gate and F/SN are more intent of portraying the story without putting you the reader into the MCs shoes. In most of the ones with partial-voiced MCs, the viewpoint had shifted to another character, or the story becomes kinetic (few or no choices) to detach you from the intimate perception of control over the character and add narrative contrast. It also cuts costs for male seiyuus. But I generally like hearing the Japanese voices because I'm a weeb.

    I played Rewrite under the mindset that the MC's main motivation has been to find a place to belong, with that desire extending into each of the heroine routes. In a way, the quality of each routes' ending is a reflection of how much the MC was willing to commit himself to make a difference. He was pretty much told to keep out of trouble in Shizuru route, and he did until curiosity got the better of him. Chihaya route takes it in the other direction by allowing the MC to develop himself before taking action and that turned out much better. It's also my personal favorite heroine route. And I believe the writers wanted to make Kotori's ending poetic with the way it ended. The MC's motivation in that route was to help her fulfill her duty out of commitment, so even failing in the end doesn't change the feelings between them. He resolves to see her again with his head held high so they can let go of the past together. Rewrite might be one of those VNs where you need to look at the routes from several perspectives to full appreciate them. The genre shifts and overlapping themes can make that a bit difficult. The different writers for the routes is partially to blame for that. Lucia's is a bit of a wildcard route that doesn't fit in with the others, but it does the romance well and presents a straightforward conflict. Akane's is the darkest and gives a larger scale to the narrative. Whether or not you want to dive back in, the important thing is whether you enjoy reading it. If you feel that it's a slog, or just not your cup of tea, set it aside and read something you know you'll enjoy at this moment.

    New theory about NekoNyan

    I was under the impression that they were all part of a hive mind.

    Natsukumo Yururu

    That's pretty much the reason why I'm hoping a different company gets this one.

    Natsukumo Yururu

    https://vndb.org/v11855 Natsukumo Yururu is a title from developer Sumikko Soft, which recently had another one of its titles, Harumade Kururu, picked up by Sekai Project. Don't be misled by the shallow vndb description or the appearances of the heroines though. Beyond the humorous and pervy slice-of-life segments of the game lay themes of depression, violence, and suicide. The story also delves into sci-fi territory with a focus on gravity manipulation and application of string theory. Also, the girls are super cute. This game takes some of the best aspects of VNs and puts it all in one package. A little teaser in the form of one of its ero-comedic sections. English captions courtesy of a buddy of mine that's currently having the time of his life reading it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Q8eQdbEaWE
  14. It'll be fun watching the reactions to these changes and seeing how far the line can be pushed.
  15. Wow, nice work I suppose. I'm guessing writing refers to the quality of the (English) text during the scene and presentation refers to the placement, portrayal, and overall "quality."
