Mosaic preferences in Visual Novel H-Scenes

Recommended Posts

Whenever there's an official release or kickstarter for an Eroge translation there's ALWAYS the question of whether there will be mosaics in the H-scenes or not.
 
There have been various discussions about H-scenes in the past but surprisingly none/not many topics about the usage of mosaics.
 
I'm all for No Mosaics, but it's not the end of the world if they are still there. People have complained about bad mosaics before but I don't really care any ones I particularly dislike off the top of my head.

I'm definitely strongly on the no mosaics side.  Since they aren't required where I live, they annoy me.  When I see them, they remind me of the original censorship and I think about that instead of the characters or the story.  Bad art doesn't take me out of the experience in the same way, so I prefer seeing whatever was drawn under the mosaics.  Since there are so many visual novels that I want to play, I very rarely choose ones with mosaics.  The only two that I can think of that I bought knowing they had mosaics in them were eden* and Nekopara.

Same as guy above. In my region there is no law for mosaic. It is only thing in Japan so i don't feel right when i need to be punished by this. Also often developers push their 'must have' mosaic policy on publishers and it's annoying. If devs by publishing game on the west want to earn money they should adapt their product here. Cuz people often buy things as they are (with mosaic/cut content) devs see that they can sell anything here. Example is SP and MoeNovel which butchers games even more, yet still they publish anothers VN. Vote with your wallets wisely.

Well being in this kind of discusion again. Question about Hello Lady! and "We're still confirming that with Akatsuki Works." Any info about this one or u forgot about it completly trying to avoid a matter? :)

You realize being a moody little troll isn't going to make people inclined to obey you, right?

I feel if mosaics are the single issue one really cares about, you weren't gonna enjoy the vn anyway. If people want them removed, fine. But I don't think it's really something worth investing too much time and money over.

I actually have come to prefer mosaics as long as they're not too over the top, which most new visual novels do pretty well in my own personal opnion.

I just bought Aokana, so I will see just how much the mosaics block out, but essentially it's like this. 

If I buy a game to enjoy the story as much as the sex that comes with it, then it better be uncensored and mosaic free. Especially if that game costs 35 bucks, which most of the games on here do. There may be laws in Japan, but in the west it's different. What's the sense in watching censored porn?

To that end, while the concepts and games are pretty good here, the fact is that that half the games are indeed mosaiced which is a deal breaker in that regard.

Maybe if you guys ask nicely, over and over, you can get these developers to allow you to remove them.
