Who's storyline moved you the most in Katawa Shoujo?

For me, it had to be Hanako's, and most of Emi's as well <3

1. Emi. I also cried the most with this one.
2. Hanako.
3. Lilly.
4. Rin.
5. Shizune. This is the only one I did not cry over.

It could have been Emi, and I feel bad for telling this, but... I can't stand her, it's really a character type that I'd find insufferable IRL :mrgreen: not to mention that even if I like some sports such as swimming, I tend to see running as a form of self-harm that I intend to avoid for the rest of my life :lol:

The result is that the storyine that moved me the most was Lilly's, as we see the creation of a pure, mutually heartfelt love between them, with as a bonus the "adoption" of Hanako. Hanako's storyline was the first I've done and I thoroughly enjoyed it, its sadder parts left me with tears welling up in my eyes and its moment of glory made me really feel happy inside, but most of the time, I felt more sad for Hanako than anything else, while Lilly's story depicts a natural, beautiful affection that develops between two people, because Lilly's handicap is NOT one in terms of romantic development.

On the other hand, Rin's ending was really interesting to follow but did not make me feel that emotionally involved, while Shizune's storyline was ruined by the fact that I really found the character quite antipathic. It isn't a critic towards the writers, in fact, I can only congratulate them on developing her character, which felt extremely natural, really like a person you'd meet IRL, maybe one of the most realistic characters in all of KS. It's just that it's the kind of person that I wouldn't like.

Hanako's.

I think that story best shows two people that have become very lost finding each other.

Depends on how you define "moved"
I had the strongest reaction to the first ending I read - Emi's bad one.
Obviously not a good reaction, though... More like a cold knot in the gut...
Emi > Misha > Hanako > Lilly > Rin > Shizune

I'm probably the only one, but Misha's did for me actually.

I found her situation with Shizune to be really relatable, seeing as I've been in a similar situation, having fallen in love with another girl that didn't love me back, and watching her become more and more distant as time went on. It really hurts, caring for someone so much only to find them barely thinking about you. Not that it's her fault, as I'm aware you can't choose you fall for and that sometimes people just move on. Yet it still isn't the great feeling thinking about how close you used to be with someone and watching them continue their life without you. Especially if you're like me and find it hard to befriend people.
