Re: Katawa Shoujo 2 Cancelled

Oh, well, it's for the best, I guess. Katawa Shoujo 2 would have been the Highlander 2 of VNs. Bring on KS3! ...well played, you guys. Even as a joke, it was really neat to see all of those cool character designs and storyboards. Whatever 4LS makes in the future - if anything - I eagerly look forwar...

Re: Does your favourite heroine reflect yourself?

As has been said by others, I can see some of myself in a number of the heroines, though perhaps predictably, I see the most of myself echoed in the girls I find most attractive. Hopefully this is more to do with a desire to be around someone who is like-minded and would better understand me than ju...

Re: KS is awesome and Hi

Welcome to the forums! Glad you enjoyed Emi's route. I agree, she is completely awesome. I'm excited for you to still have the other girls to learn more about. As has been said, Shizune's route isn't for everyone, but it definitely has its proponents, and there are still moments in her path that are...

Re: Have you dated someone like any KS character?

snip That's a story of a kind I've heard before. I know a recently married couple with similar issues: the husband has confided in me that he doesn't find his wife terribly attractive. I don't get the impression that your fixation on NordicGirl could possibly have much to do with her, at this point...

Re: Have you dated someone like any KS character?

You're married, but you still pine away after that Nordic girl... does that mean you love her more than your wife? I was actually wondering how long it would be before someone asked me that. It's...complicated. I love my wife, she's wonderful to me and complements me in a lot of ways, and I would n...

I'm trying! I just finished "Shira Oka: Second Chances" (which, I know, is more a dating sim than a VN, strictly speaking), and now I'm all moody 'cuz I need a new one. I guess I could go back to Clannad, but I was getting pretty frustrated and bored by it...

Re: Japanese language Q&A

Just wanted to pop in here with a comment/question. From what I remember of my one semester of Japanese in community college, there's no real difference between the letters 'r' and 'l' in Japanese, and when pronounced, they sound like something in between, correct? So Rin, who I most often hear pron...

Re: Just finished KS華子.

Congratulations! For me it was a wonderful and awful feeling - wonderful because I felt I really knew all of the characters well and felt fulfilled by the stories' resolutions, but awful because now I had to grapple with the fact that Yamaku and the girls were just fictional characters and I had no ...

Re: The Devotion Sickness

I feel badly for the guys who played Emi's route after Lilly's route. Lilly twists the knife. :P

But I did really feel this while playing Shizune's route. During the fishing scene I wanted so badly to go home with Lilly.

Re: Your first ending?

For me it was Emi's good ending. It ensured I'd be hooked for life. I'll have to join the Emi good ending club. I was actually going for Hanako on my first time around, but I guess I was a bit too competitive for my own good. :lol: Like Panda I was blown away by it and that ensured that I'd go back...

Re: Have you dated someone like any KS character?

I think we have met so many Emi´s out there because most of us are introverted shy people who dont really have a lot to say most of the time. So these girls are always talking and asking us to do stuff and we usually go with them. This sounds fairly likely. My wife is also an introvert. When we fir...

Yep. Even if she doesn't physically age gracefully, she's so refined and classy you probably wouldn't really take much notice of it.

My exact thoughts when I saw the thread title.

As for the opposite, I might be concerned for Misha, but how heavy do Japanese girls get? And she's so cute she'd probably just look voluptuously sexy anyway.

Shizune is going to make an awesome old woman.

Re: Have you dated someone like any KS character?

I should keep this brief, since I'm typing this up on a tablet and because I'm liable to go full- on Hanako's Broken Heart Club on this. Short version, I fell madly in love with an Emi and never got over her, to the degree that I've suffered some pretty bad periods of depression that I ended up seei...
