Re: Why does it seems like no one understands Rin?

But that coupled with the fact that, when I once asked him how much of Rin's arc was due to his own experiences, he straight up said that pretty much everything within it was a fabrication of his own mind and wasn't drawn from his life experiences at all, yeah...that's what leads me to my whole 'Ma...

Re: Cheating and KS.

I think it's an awful lot of extrapolation from very limited data, but ok, that's the game. Generally, I would be careful with absolute black and white answers. It is difficult to identify a cheater in advance, but I think it could happen to many depending on the state of their relationship. Hanako ...

Re: What age did Emi lose her virginity?

Excuse me, I am very new to this whole thing. Although I have a pretty clear idea of the intention behind this thread, there is still something I'd like to know. This 'Emi the slut' meme is surprisingly common. Is there a story behind it? Did people ever argue that seriously? Did I miss the great Is...

Re: Yamaku student body, architecture, etc.

It could be something that occasionally happens in real-life institutions, too. They have high 'list prices' but reduced rates for students from low-income families, scholarships for gifted students etc. That way you have diverse student body overall, but things can be really though for average inco...

Re: Yamaku student body, architecture, etc.

I am a little surprised that Yamaku seems so tiny to some here. In my class in a perfectly unremarkable public German school we were seventy-something students. Granted, that school covered nine years resulting in a much higher total because of the typical structure of the school system here. Also, ...

Re: Yamaku student body, architecture, etc.

Feel free to talk about the Japanese education system too (in contrast to Western ones) or other related stuff, I don't know. Then I hope you don't mind if I add a question of my own. What are those important exams about? Do those mark the end of the term? Initially I thought they marked the end of...

That's an unexpected choice. I think it is a great movie, but not one I would have thought of in a million years. Is there a particular reason why you think she would like it?

Re: KS Changes my view on life

The bad way is that it makes me think about my life, basically saying that my life is absolute garbage right now and I should go out there and find someone, especially Emi. [...] Another view on life this game has taught me was that life is so innocent and so are the people, everyone in Yamaku is s...

Re: The meaning of Katawa Shoujo.

Of course the possible meanings of a work are often highly subjective, but personally I don't see the meaning of Katawa Shoujo as a statement about disability. For me the whole disability angle is more plot device than message. It defines the setting and it provides a 'surface' conflict for each of ...

Oh, I see how that was unclear. I didn't. I decided not to talk to her mother although I suspected that it was meant to be a good idea. So I got the roundabout good end.

Re: Your first ending?

Like so many others, Emi, but the 'second best' ending. I understood that the earlier hints likely meat that I should talk to her mother, but I wasn't really comfortable with bypassing her. All in all Emi is still my favorite. Playing her path first may have helped with that, but it certainly wasn't...

Thanks. Generally they are good people (that's how I prefer my friends), but they really let me down there.

Re: How'd you find yourself here?

Like several others I found Katawa Shoujo itself via TVTropes. That was about two weeks ago. I don't remember which trope page started it, but it was completely by accident. It was also the first VN that I ever finished or even attempted remotely seriously. I enjoy reading reviews and discussions of...

Re: What movie do you think would be each girl's favourite?

I think some of the suggestions for Emi ignore her romantic* streak. She may not be serious when she plans to be a pirate, but there's a reason why the idea appeals to her on some level.

My suggestion: The Princess Bride

(* as in romanticism, not necessarily as in love story)
