Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

Now that I cared to read the original post, this is a really nice and good idea! In the past few weeks my major depression has returned. Despite me taking 4+1 different medications for my conditions (Borderline with PTSD, maj. depression, bipolar 2, generalized anxiety, social anxiety->asocial and a...

Re: Shizune's "Good" Ending -- Sad or Happy?

I feel like trying to categorize an ending that is basically just a fairly normal mid-point in a young person's life as happy or sad isn't possible, at least if you want to capture the full range of emotions associated with it. The main trio in that ending are all moving on to potentially better th...

Re: Shizune's "Good" Ending -- Sad or Happy?

Who is or isn't mature largely depends pn how you define maturity. Obviously true. If you consider someone mature just because they are sexually open, then, yes, Emi is quite mature. Her inability to open up to even the people closest to her however is not mature at all. Now, she has a valid reason...

Re: Shizune's "Good" Ending -- Sad or Happy?

Especially when her boyfriend is as boring as Hisao. So it's not just me who thinks that Hisao is the most clueless and immature character in the game? Most clueless? Did you forget Kenji is in the game? I think he's underrated. Shows sometimes, also in the bad bad ending. It's just covered up by h...

If I were a girl, I'd never fall for him.
But I might just be a bit jealous XD

Slow Recovery / No Recovery ?

Extras > Library tells me I missed "Slow Recovery". However! I do get to the text of Slow Recovery, starting with NARRATOR: "The halls are quiet as the courtyard was, naturally so since everyone is in class. I knock lightly at the door of 3-3 and push open the door when Mutou calls from the other si...

Some time ago, I think it was you who said the Shizune I wrote initially for 'After The Dream' was the most soulless one you'd ever come across.

Re: Shizune's "Good" Ending -- Sad or Happy?

wow -- and I thought I was being obsessive :-) Currently, I play ef - the story of the two; but I'll have to replay One Thousand Lies, which I massively underestimated on my first readthrough and realized that only after reading some analysis threads. And then Higurashi, where chapter 6, released a ...

Re: Shizune's "Good" Ending -- Sad or Happy?

Thanks to both of you for sharing your thoughts and the author's approach. The dad issue sounds very reasonable. So he is designed to really be that asshole, which of course to a certain degree explains the obvious issues Shizune and her brother have. In a way, Lilly's and Akira's parents too have c...

Shizune's "Good" Ending -- Sad or Happy?

I saved Shizune for the last route. I regret it. Emotionally, the "good" ending was the saddest of all endings in the game. The "bad" ending was very, very quiet and sad too. The only "I love you" came from Hisao and may even gone unheard because he voiced it and did not sign it. Also, it was when t...
