Re: Discussion - Emi Route (*Spoilers* Warning)

The bad end actually isn't that, uh, bad. Makes you appreciate the good ending even more I think. I won't go into details.

Re: Why is Shizune's dad such a.....

Fuck knows why, but I decided to browse the thread I apparently have the most posts in to see why the hell that is. Found this. http://ks.renai.us/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1956&start=150 Who the fuck is Jigoro? Apparently a character from the full game. If I meet Jigoro in the full game... I'm going to ...

Re: Discussion - Emi Route (*Spoilers* Warning)

One, after choosing to talk to Meiko, got found out by Emi, and at the rooftop after Rin left they talked to each other, Emi's supposedly still defensive reaction suddenly turn 'I'msosorryIloveyouIloveyoudon'tleaveme' was a little awkward and weird. I think it's fine that she had that sudden turnar...

Re: Ask!

The design of Act 1 was that unless you chased after Hanako/Lilly/Shizune, you'd probably end up with Emi. It doesn't mean that we meant players to read it first, however. The stories are not dependent on each other, they can be read in any order. There is, however, the issue of the letter from Iwa...

Re: Ask!

I list here and here some observations I made while playing through the Emi route which I think indicate that Emi was intended to be the "natural" route that players go through first. I also point out some of the negative consequences that Emi's Act 1 presentation had on her reception up until relea...

I skimmed through the post thinking that you were writing down your thoughts for the entire route and then hit this bombshell.

Please don't do this for each act.

Well, your emotional reaction is directly proportionate to how "into it" you are. So maybe you didn't take the story seriously enough!

Re: Discussion - Emi Route (*Spoilers* Warning)

...many players get "railroaded" into Emi's route in Act 1, which I remember Aura mentioning was a deliberate design. Where did Aura say that? I'd like to see elaboration on this. What's it for? http://ks.renai.us/viewtopic.php?p=17338#p17338 Seems I misremembered and he didn't specifically say tha...

Re: Discussion - Emi Route (*Spoilers* Warning)

So after finishing Shizune's route, I have some more thoughts on Emi's route. Not criticisms though; just observations. I'm going to assume everyone reading this thread has already finished Emi's route, but will try not to spoiler Shizune's route... I mean, is it a spoiler to just say that the confl...

Re: Why is Shizune's dad such a.....

Comic relief. Because Shizune's route was kind of lacking in that department. But it wasn't funny, it was just enraging. It was both. He's like a real-life Internet troll; he says things to get you riled up and often succeeds, but at the same time he's so ridiculous you can't take him too seriously...

Re: Hints, not spoilers, for good endings for all 5

Originally, I just had "Keep running after Emi", but I've seen claims that it's possible to miss the good end if you overdo it. If you can't screw up that way, drop the second part. I think better advice for Emi's route is to "Keep running after her, but know that you can't catch up to her on your ...

Re: Discussion - Emi Route (*Spoilers* Warning)

I'll be repeating what pretty much everyone else said here, but anyway. The one thing about the route that I really did not like was Hisao's stupidity regarding the whole "dead dad" thing. It should have been possible to create the conflict that was central to the climax without giving Hisao F-rank ...
