Why are you still here and enjoying KS after all this time?

Post by Hanako Scars » Mon Apr 13, 2015 8:37 pm

Years on I still can't help but come back for another playthrough. Not done it for quite some time now so I'm going to go on and start a new one right now.

I'm experiencing all of this for the first time thanks to my friend from school identifying Misha when I showed him a picture and asked what she's from.

Now I only have you select few gents to experience these feels with; I really can't imagine what it was like when the game first came out.

I've never actually re-read the VN...
I read it through and got all the endings, but I just haven't decided to read it again at aa later date. I kinda have that stubborn mentality of "I already know how it's going to end, I don't see the point" :lol:
The community and fanbase are what keeps me coming back. Bunch of top lads round here :)

I agree, Munch. There are bits and pieces across the whole story that drag me back but I haven't really been tempted to go over the whole kit and kaboodle over again. If I was writing something related to it, however, then by necessity I would have to.

Otherwise, its the community and shared interests that brings me back to the forums.

The community, that's one...

The rich expandable universe, followed with it being in a more familiar background than most of what I've read, so that's two...

And I still have a story to finish and a new one in planning, so that is what kept me here

I've only reread Hanako's & Lilly's route after finishing the VN but, the community is the main reason I come back here and read up whats everyone commenting or writing in the case of fanfics.

Because this is the best VN I've ever read.

Simply put, I'm still here 6 months later because the people here are awesome.

And because there are, like, 5 fanfics that are still being updated that I swear to god I will finish if I'm here 'till the end of time!

I also write now, apparently. Since everyone else does it, I'm putting it here

I have also discovered that I'm a decent proofreader. Anybody with SPaG problems is free to PM me their work for a thorough analysis and/or evisceration. Depends on how I'm feeling.

I come and go from here, but it's nice to come back and read through people's thoughts and insights into the VN, as frequently they improve my own understanding and interpretation. Enjoying KS consistently I suppose comes from this aforementioned development. And, even though I know what happens and how things pan out, it's useful for a good cry when I need one :D

Just like what everyone else said, It because of the community. There's some really awesome people here and make/show awesome things. Also cause I can never really forget the things I love.

Yes, I enjoy being part of this community. I get to see what people think of the world of KS, and their awesome new riffs and developments based on it. I join in too sometimes, and that makes me feel part of something bigger than I am, a kind of family of feels and feelers (that sounds terribly insectoid, though). :D

I'm glad this community has grown and changed so much over the years. Though my original reading was long ago, and I've only reread Hanako and Shizune's routes, the other girls keep tugging at me. Namely Lilly. It's just that, a standard is set when you come upon the most powerful piece of anime media ever. It stumps every other piece of anime out there, and if not by far, then by enough. At least in my opinion. There's just too much "magical girl" and other BS out there... KS is about real, lifelike people with real life problems, and they become part of your heart forever. Since October 29 2012, my life was forever changed. Just the simple fact I remember the date should be enough to prove.
