If you're interested, Clannad is having a kickstarter to produce an English translation.

Re: The Official KS Headcanon Thread

He would probably mellow out after leaving Yamaku. In one of Cpl_crud's fanfics not only did Kenji totally mellow out, he also married Yuuko and had a kid! https://cplcrud.wordpress.com/4ls-era-fanworks-and-scraps/final-finale-part-1/ I know it's not canon, but I like to think that having one of th...

Re: The Official KS Headcanon Thread

Speaking of headcanon around Hanako ... If people being false-faced was enough to give people PTSD we'd all be basket cases. So I'm imagining something much more elaborate than that. <headcanon> At the orphanage, the nurses there would first make Hanako write invitation cards to all the other childr...

Re: The Official KS Headcanon Thread

The route heavily implies that it's also the anniversary of the fire, even if it doesn't say it. Does it? As far as I know, the only time it's suggested is when Hisao's speculating, but he himself acknowledges it's not more than that. When Hisao calls Lilly about Hanako's birthday in Lilly's route,...

Re: Why does shizune hate lily?

Really. Finish the whole VN. You get bits and pieces throughout the different routes.

Fundamentally, they are two alpha females with really different leadership styles, and neither will bend to the other.

Re: Favourite artworks - reprise.

It's also about the right color for Green Chartreuse. Since Green Chartreuse is ~100 proof -- boy howdy Lilly is having a good time tonight. That's a lot of 100 proof liqueur.

Re: Favourite artworks - reprise.

That color green? Clearly a thick liquid?

Lilly's drinking pea soup.

Now that is fancy living -- wine glasses for soup bowls.

You know, when I first saw Misha's new haircut, my first thought was "Why is Misha rocking baby dyke hair?"

Re: Random KS Discussion

About Shizune's route: As I understand it, Shizune's route is about Shizune, not Hisao. Hisao is very much an observer in this story and not the active factor he is in other routes. This means that in order to understand the route, you constantly have to be asking questions and making inferences. Wh...

Re: Types of emotional reactions to KS

Let me explain why I think Rin's good ending is so painful. Start with the scenes before that, in "Problems of Self-Referential Logic" and "Raison d'Etre". Hisao and Rin have two nasty arguments, perhaps the most painful scenes in KS. Two people that fundamentally care about each other but can't hel...

Re: Types of emotional reactions to KS

In my last playthrough (taking it slow, no more than an hour a day) Rin's good end hurt bad. The A#1 rule of Yamaku os that you're not helpless, you're not your disability, but in the good end Rin seduces Hisao by making herself helpless. It hurt to imagine how lonely she must be in order for her to...

Re: So, what's wrong with me? (Emi & Hanako route spoilers)

I made 'bad ending' choices in Shizune: How the hell can you just turn away somebody (Misha) in that much pain? and Hanako: She's an introvert, so she'll want to be alone, right? D'Oh! That bit after the club about how she wants to be there for Hisao -- completely spaced. P.S. -- if you play random...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

@Bluegaze -- My experience was (and of course YMMV, this was in the USA): I really hated Middle School (grades 6-8). Worst time of my life. I hated High School (grades 9-12). Better, but still ugly. I loved college. College gave me a chance to reboot my life. I found a pretty simple formula for meet...

Re: Random KS Discussion

In Lilly's case, Hisao does indeed seem partially in denial and it's the player's duty to bend him just enough to move him out of that denial zone. Him being honest in the little things (the choice points) eventually extends to him also being able to take a look in the mirror and being honest enoug...
