Re: A newcomer's thoughts on Katawa Shoujo

Wazuzu, thanks for that post. I got a little lost here and there where you slipped into what I now inwardly call "board speak", but I got the gist, and good it's good to meet a fellow-Rin-feeler, if you will. ETA: Not sure how I feel about this getting moved to the Feedback forum. It was only tangen...

Re: A newcomer's thoughts on Katawa Shoujo

You're grasping at straws, methinks. Hisao would have noticed if this were true. I don't deny the possibility. That's a big reason why I want to do a replay. It makes sense, but I have to know for myself if it's the right choice of lens. Had I not lived with an alcoholic (my mother) for most of my ...

Re: A newcomer's thoughts on Katawa Shoujo

People like Jigoro exist. If you haven't met any yet, you're lucky, because they're usually drunk and scary. *has epiphany* Yes! I think my problem wasn't so much that he was like this, but more that there were no cues coming to me from the game that it wasn't just his normal, unaltered state. If I...

Re: A newcomer's thoughts on Katawa Shoujo

Markus, we cross-posted there, and even about the same thing. See above for further thoughts on Jigoro. And yes, I agree that the second half of Shizune's arc is much too linear. Great character, terribly flawed arc.

Re: A newcomer's thoughts on Katawa Shoujo

Thanks very much for sharing that, EyesOfLilly. I find it interesting we both started with Emi, and we both found our favorites on our second pass. I wonder how common that is. I left a fair bit out of my Rin section, too. God, how could I have left out the scene where he's peeling and feeding her t...

Re: Is KS fandom dying?

*laughs* Thanks, all, for that. Sadly, I'm going to be rewarding you all with something you've seen so often you might be jaded by it - a long breakdown of my own first experience with KS. Oddball was right: if I have something to say, I need to say it. Just let me know if there's a specific place ...

A newcomer's thoughts on Katawa Shoujo

Per Xanatos' suggestion, I am creating a new thread for this, a (somewhat) full accounting of my feelings on this game during my first playing of each character. Note: I have only played Good Endings, except where noted, and...yeah, I really don't care about 100% completion, and likely never will. S...

Re: Is KS fandom dying?

First off, thanks very much for engaging me. It shows that I was right to feel like I could, as you put it, "jump right in" here. It wasn't an easy decision. I'm not trying to be snarky or anything (at least no more than I usually am.) I meant I removed my snarky response. "ETR" - "edited to remove"...

Re: Is KS fandom dying?

You want to talk about something? Start talking. Other people will join in. Sometimes. Other times they won't. There's no guarantees either way. I know this. I'm using my example to illustrate the difficulty of doing just that for someone coming in cold, which I thought was pertinent to the questio...

Re: Is KS fandom dying?

I can only speak for myself, as a newcomer to both the game and these boards, but I do have some observations. I have been pretty much burning to talk about this game since starting to play it. I've dipped into a couple threads, testing the waters, without anyone replying to my posts. Looking around...

Re: How'd you find yourself here?

Similarly to the previous poster, I first ran across the name "Katawa Shoujo" via TVTropes. Being legally blind myself, I was intrigued by the concept, but was a bit put off by the genre at first (yeah, yeah, will await the hazing over that). I forgot about it for a while, but a few weeks ago I ran ...

Re: POLL: First girl you went for

Greetings. First post on these forums, as I just discovered this game a few days ago. Heck, I only discovered this genre a few weeks ago thanks to stumbling across The Asenheim Project website. As with others on this thread, I went into the game without any idea which direction to go first, so I wen...
