Re: The Hanako Thread - Spoilers, obviously

I like to imagine that when Hanako hesitantly mentions that she "likes computers," what she actually means is, "I edit Wikipedia articles about fashion, tropical aquarium fish, vegetarian cooking, and computer operating systems. I bought that penguin doll on my shelf because I've been running custo...

Having bad fashion would make her stand out even more.

Actually, she does give a nod to it before sextime- Hisao starts to ask and she responds. Some people would prefer to be "right" than correct, I guess.

I don't think she's afraid of him, she just doesn't like him because of how he tries to say "hi" to her when she comes in- probably reminds her too much of her dad.

Re: nomiya

I heard he was worse than Jigoro (Shizune's dad), but when I first encountered him, I actually found him quite likable and interesting. It wasn't until Rin's Act 3 and 4 that I started to see WHY people didn't like him. Honestly, I wish he'd die in a fire, now. Yeah, Jigoro is generally too over-th...

Re: Just finished Hanako's route, and well...

Really, that wouldn't surprise me at all. Observation: People are way too quick to use the R-word. I would say more about the whole matter, but themocaw said it better than I ever could. The thing is, in that in a good chunk of genre fiction, sex is either reserved for one of two applications- rape...

Re: What If Katawa Shoujo Never Existed?

And they weren't nearly as intense. I know that in the real world there's no comparison between the writing in Katawa Shoujo and Moby Dick or (especially) Shakespeare, but I just can't care about them. They don't get through to me like KS did. And let's face it, Shakespeare did drop his own share o...

Re: KS have changed me for the better.

What I've gathered is that it's a rather personal experience, not just player by player but route by route- some of the stories I've heard coming out are people like soldiers and VA counselors being deeply affected by Emi's path, there was a guy on /v/ who lost it on Hanako's path because he lost hi...

Re: Hanako as a "Mary Sue"?

I would say no: First off, she doesn't unload her troubles onto everybody within earshot- It's not until partway into act two that she even tells Hisao the beginnings of what happened to her, and not even Lilly knows the full extent of what happened. Second, her character isn't about people feeling ...

I don't have that scene. Was it one of the scenes leading up the bad ending? Because I've never seen the bad ending.
Yes, it is- you only meet Lilly in Act 4 if you made the bad choice.

Re: Dissapointed with Hanako's Arc

Of course not all visual novels are dating simulators, but like I said in my previous post, I don't think it's unfair to call Katawa Shoujo a dating simulator. You choose to peruse a particular girl, and making the choices that end up having you date the girl is considered the 'good' ending. If tha...

Re: Did anyone feel like there was no Hisao just you playing

I don't think that any of the characters in KS were ever meant to be perfect, and that goes for Hisao too. It's only natural that he wouldn't always do the right thing, or even mess up things really bad from time to time, just like he would have the occasional stroke of genius (like the scene where...
