Re: Creation of a new (original) VN

Those are all questions that could be brought to the reader's mind if I ever made this idea into something concrete. I'd go with normal people having normal souls, thus having some sort of afterlife, whereas the Old Souls are more-or-less doomed to live on forever more. Some of the awakened Old Sou...

Re: Reactions in Other Paths?

Having played Shizune's route I realized that when Misha is talking about something without laughing every fifth word I should pay attention.

Re: Poster

Having an image with all the girls makes sense from a demonstration point of view ("here are the characters that are in this game") but when you play the game you realize that for these five or six girls to be together would be kind of weird because they aren't friends or anything. Some of them are ...

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

A bit late but... If you talk to Emi's mom rather than follow her out of the dining room, she'll tell you that to Emi, the accident was "no big deal", not something that defines her. This is untrue, though. Setting aside the legs and the annual spat of nightmares (things she's learned to deal with),...

Re: Creation of a new (original) VN

I personally don't care for religion, but I can definitely see Eastern religious overtones in this, what with reincarnation and all. [...] Well, the idea of reincarnation is also kinda prevalent in Western religion, what with Jesus' resurrection and what not. The Phoenix is still gladly taken as an...

Re: Creation of a new (original) VN

Well I've had an idea brewing in my mind for a story regarding the concept of Old Souls. My idea is, Old Souls are eternal souls that are constantly reborn into new people as time goes by.. They don't explicitly remember their previous lives, but may experience deja vu from time to time, or have dr...

Re: Shizune's path

Have we discussed why the picture for the Act 4 title card seems to be Shizune with a younger version of herself? Her childhood doesn't seem to figure that large in the story.

Re: The Path(s) Not Taken

A somewhat interesting distinction is that only on Emi's path does she run herself so hard she hurts herself and gets an infection. Hisao sees her run in the meet on Rin's path as well as her own and neither he nor Rin notice her stride break so apparently Hisao's presence on her practice runs reall...

Re: Ask!

I've only played a handful of VNs but the things that KS does with its sprites (moving them on screen to indicate actions described in the narration, displaying at different sizes to reflect character's distance from Hisao) are quite new to me. Was this an original idea?

Re: If they were "normal"

Emi - Nothing would change Except that the accident gave her epic levels of PTSD, caused her to not want to let ANYBODY grow close to her, and she damn near had an emotional meltdown on Hisao when he said he loved her. If Emi never lost her legs, she wouldn't be the kind of person presented in the ...

Re: Kenji's Story

He sneaks back into his room and congratulates himself on eliminating the latest feminist threat without being detected.

Later he steals some books from the library.

Where did Aura say that? I'd like to see elaboration on this. What's it for?

Re: Feelings toward Kenji.

What can be pieced together from various paths is that Kenji was Yuuko's boyfriend. After they had sex for the first time, Kenji spiraled into a paranoid fantasy that she was trying to drain the life out of him and disappeared. She doesn't know why he left. This works as more comic relief; he cites ...
