Re: syfy.com tags KS as one of the five sexiest visual novels out there

Seen the Grisaja anime... Well, the first one anyway. If the story is even a little like the VN then you shouldn't expect too much. The Grisaia anime is a massive disservice to the VN. As for the VN itself, the best parts are the non-H scenes - to the point where I'd recommend the (censored) Steam ...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20190218 KS Pentameter)

We, the Council The phrasing and flow of the story reminded me of a movie script, despite not being in script style. Alternately, you could say it almost feels like some bizarre sort of nature documentary. Content-wise, it's decent enough. Reasonably good characterisation, etc. I have to admit that...

Re: Avenues of Communication (updated 1-25-19)

Well, I feel bad about doing this, especially as this isn't complete yet, but I think this is distracting me to the point where it's keeping me from concentrating on my own writing, so time to get it off my chest. Reading this is painful. Not because it's bad - much the, opposite in fact. It's quite...

Re: A One-Shot: Footsteps in the Dark(9S/ Secret Santa '18)

Well, this is a tricky one. It's well-written, there's no issue with the characters, and it's quite sweet. But at the same time, it hurts. Painfully so. I wouldn't see Lilly as necessarily doing this out of spite (unless it's Evil Lilly), but it certainly has the end result of twisting the knife for...

Re: Christmas Spirits, City Angels, A Shanghai Carol - S9 Submission for Scroff

Lovely writing and a cute story. The subversion of expectations at the end is a nice touch (also a bit of an obvious cop-out, but the delivery was good, so we can let it slide).

Oddly enough, what I find most intriguing is the introduction of Mr. Domen. He could be an interesting figure to play with.

Re: Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#55—'Clubbing') (S9)

A fic that only Brythain could write. Whenever I read one, I'm reminded that I need to eventually get around to reading *After the Dream* in its entirety.

As it is, it's Sci-Fi Christmas Katawas. What's not to like?

Re: The Great Yamaku Holiday Bake Off (S9 submission)

Well, this is a good demonstration of the saying that dumb fun is the best kind of fun. And it's always fun to venture out of your comfort zone every once in a while. The character interactions are fun, with solid comedic timing. Well-done overall.

Re: Secret Santa 2018 - Story collection

Onsen a Lifetime Nice story, but, umm... what's with all the Airplane! references? Rooftop Repartee Similar to Mirage, it's a nice story, but it's kinda sad to see (serious) depictions of Nomiya as the resident creep. Fun and goofy depictions are enjoyable for a laugh, but serious writing in that d...

Re: Shizunes Route Analysis, 7 Years Later

While I haven't watched that video, I figure I know exactly which one it is based on context. I've heard a few people chattering about this video. You can tell that the guy is interested in serious discussion and analysis by the fact that he deletes any comment that disagrees with him. ¬_¬ Unlike mo...

Re: Yamaku's Swimming Pool

Assuming it's a specialised pool, you're probably looking at something similar to what you'd find here . At the same time, it's a safe bet that there's a swim team and the occasional gym class pool days, emulating a normal high school, which would require regulation-sized swim lanes roped off, if no...

Re: S9 Submission: Project Blue Curtain

Project Blue Curtain To say that I'm happy with the result would be a gross understatement. This was pretty phenomenal. Doesn't hurt that The Truman Show is one of my favorite movies. Can't help but point out there were some timeline issues (most notably that Hisao's lock-in scene with Emi comes on...

Re: Secret Santa 2018 - Story collection

Akira's Surprise Contrary to Mirage's implications, I did not pick and choose who drew what. And even if I had, I had yet to read any of Lap's work, so he was a complete question mark for me. (Full disclosure: I used a random number generator to pull an array of 27 numbers, 1-27. I rerolled once, b...
