Re: Yamaku Book Club (Iwanako Rising)

I think it depends on how strictly or loosely you define "canon." I think there are a handful of personality traits that any Hisao has to have to really feel like Hisao - at least if we're talking about something taking place during the main story of Katawa. Hisaos before or Hisaos after that I can ...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Iwanako Rising)

Consider me someone who hasn't read MTtB, and also largely because I would like to write something (most likely not a route, though) with Iwanako in the future and I don't want to be too colored by it, given how seminal a work it is for KS fandom here. I think a lot of the appeal of Iwanako comes in...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 6/17!)

Thanks one and all. I'll address you each below, but I'm glad you enjoyed this. I had a difficult time writing it - I knew what I wanted to do, but execution can be tricky. I wanted this to feel like the end of Katawa Act 1, where you're locking yourself in for the ride and you know that from an OOC...

Act 1, Chapter 7 - Sidetracked & Shanghaied

And heeeeere's Act 1, Chapter 7 - also known as the last chapter of Act 1! Act 2 will commence soon - with a frantic week of prepping for a local anime convention over last week, I can hopefully get back to a more regular writing schedule now! ------------------------------------- Somehow, it's Satu...

On a slightly unrelated note, is there any way I can "Subscribe" to this thread and know when there are updates? I'm relatively new to this forum :)
Welcome aboard! Good to have you reading, and thank you. :)

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 6/8!)

Dat is the Kenji we all know and love. Well done. Also, sane but slightly depressed Hisao was just about right. :) Thank you. Writing depressed Hisao is somewhat tough because in spite of being a somewhat generic character, he does seem to have a very specific depressed/worrying/wondering mode that...

Act 1, Chapter 6 - Night and Day

I'm alive! Sorry this took so long to post! Things have been hectic, and may be for another week or so, but after that I should be back on a more normal schedule. * * * No matter how much I try to convince myself otherwise, grading handouts just isn't fun. It doesn't matter what I do. I can have mus...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 6/2!)

Quite a popular theme in Japanese anime and manga. And, unlike how it's done in the US, is done rather tastefully and/or comically (like Negima). I was just thinking of something not as bland as another Lilly route. Not my story though, so whatever the author chooses, that's fine. The thing is, I c...

Re: Firing Blanks - (Updated 6-3) Lost in Translation? Whuzz

I really liked the tone and style of this - taking itself seriously but at the same time not seriously. I'm a sucker for portraying outlandish premises in serious, grounded ways, and this does an excellent job of that.

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 6/2!)

Anyway, I say good chapter! I like basically everything here. Fingers crossed we get more Osamu. I kinda like the kid already. Thank you. He will likely show up again. Also, taking your advice into account and editing the double besides. Nah, he's totally gonna hook up with a student. Make things s...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Resumed 03 June 2015)

My main thought regarding this story is that while I'm not super fond of the story itself, the writing is pretty good and engaging and I enjoyed reading it. I was fine with the twist, depressing as it was, but just something about the story as a whole fell flat to me. That said, I didn't really come...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 6/2!)

A very nice chapter; you continue to capture the feel of a true KS sequel, in some ways. Just a few things that bug me: 1) Osamu calls Hisao 'Mr Hisai' (that's really odd!); 2) Lilly leans against the wall, which somehow doesn't seem very Lilly; 3) wait a minute, shouldn't Hisao be having a regular...

Act 1, Chapter 5 - Extracurricular Activities

It's over. My first day is over, and it flashed by in the blink of an eye. Before I really know what's happening, I'm back in an empty room 3-3, going over the events of my day. I'm thankful that 3-3 isn't used by any of the clubs. Having my homeroom free to work in is nice, and it also gives me a p...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 5/31!)

I'd say at their current length your chapters are not in any danger of crashing the boards :-) Hmm. Introducing 18 characters in a single chapter is... bold. I hope you don't expect us to remember them all by the next chapter - or we need a "classroom" picture as a mental crutch^^° That's good to k...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 5/31!)

I gotta say, I love that you actually took the time to make a classroom full of interesting OCs. There's not much else to this chapter, but damn, that's quite the achievement. I like that you can kind of already see Katawa Shoujo 2 happening here, how easy and automatic it is to start speculating o...
