Do I want to see the bad/neutral endings?

Post by san1111 » Fri Jan 16, 2015 8:02 pm

I created this topic because my first attempt at KS failed miserably and I got Hanako's bad ending. This was one of the most depressing experiences of my life, I couldn't think about anything else for quite some time and I have that 'dem feels' feeling even as I'm writing this. I also haver to mention that Hanako was/is by far my favourite character in the game (let's admit it, I loved her as much as a visual novel character can be loved).


The idea of watchig the bad endings came to my mind because went to YouTube a moment ago and a user whose KS videos I followed just finished the series and now he's recording the neutral/bad endings and I wanted to know if I wanted to see them.

Definitely.

Be prepared for the feels first, though.

Do you want to? No, probably not, but they're worth looking at, so... suck it up, I guess. That's kind of how I ended up handling it.

Yeah because you're not a PUSSY. You can handle them, because you're a BOSS. If you can overcome the bad ends in Katawa Shoujo, you're ready to tackle any challenge in life. I believe in you.

I so seldom see Aura out of the 'Ask' thread that I am overwhelmed by sensations of actually being a BOSS and ready to tackle any challenge in life...

Hanako's Bad End is not necessarily "The End" for them.

To make things a little easier, remember that these are teenagers who are probably have their first serious relationship. Having it end on neutral or bad terms isn't that unusual.

Absolutely go through the bad ends. They are half the story and tell you a lot about the all the characters.

You've survived the worst (Hanako) now go get the rest.

Just watch them if you don't want to play them.

Unless we're talking about Emi... then it's very brief and tell you absolutely nothing about her that you didn't already know.

She's just like, kbai Hisao fek u m8-

Which, brilliantly enough, is kind of the point of that ending.

Listen san1111... Don't forget. Believe in yourself. Not in the you who believes in Aura. Not the Aura who believes in you. Believe in the you who believes in yourself.

Seriously, go for it. There's a lot to be learned about the characters in those endings, and you can conquer those feels.
