Who was your first Katawa Shoujo Girl?

I am curious about this. I'd never played a game of this genre before, so the first time through, I'd go with the choices I guess I'd follow if I were Hisao's situation myself. After playing it through once, I'm then selecting my choices to try and follow one of the girl's paths.

The first time I played it through, I paired up with Emi. Given I went with my instincts when making choices in the game, does this mean she is the best natural match for me? Although, to be honest, I preferred Hanako's route.

So, who was your first girl? And did you think she was a good match for your own personallity?

Shizune, and yes, she is very much like my wife.

When I played the demo I got Hanako, but the first complete route I played was Lilly's. In a way, Hanako symbolizes the people I ended up actually dating, with Lilly being the kind of person I think would be healthier for me.

When I played through the first time I, too, got Emi. I did like her route, and I think she is the type of person I end up dating. However, I think Lilly would be a much closer match for my personality, as well as being the type of person that I prefer to go out with.

The first time I played through the game, I got Hanako, and I'm perfectly fine with that.

She's obviously the best character out of the lot of them. :wink:

I got Emi first, but I totally agree with you. Although I do wish Yuuko had been an option.She is totally my type, and she's adorable in that waitress uniform.

I originally started Emi's route, when I first read. I've come to discover that it's a number of traits from all of the girls that go towards what I believe is a good personality match with me. Regardless, I enjoy Emi as a character, and her route is enjoyable. I did know someone intimately who had traits of Emi, and I ended up making some poor choices that ended up hurting us badly. I wish I paid more attention to that route back then. haha

Emi was my first girl too. I think Hanako was my second followed by Lilly, Shizune and finally Rin.

I remember seeing a statistic some time back where a guy at queried people and gotten a rough estimate of what characters get what percentage their first time.

If I recall correctly Emi got around 70% of all first time players with Rin only getting 3%. The later is because she is famously meant to be hard to get. The other however kinda just happened. I am pretty sure Hivemind and the others mentioned that looking back they'd have liked to add something more to getting her then just running.

The first girl I got was Emi, like a lot of people. I think that a lot of people get Emi first since her route is the easiest to get. Then, I get Lilly, Hanako, Rin and Shizune, in that order. I'm not a sports-like person, but I kinda like Emi's personality. But I don't think it would be a good match for me, even if I liked her route. I would say that a much more accurate match for me would be a girl like Lilly. Yes, I have 0 originality.

Got Hanako's path when I first played the Act 1 demo back in May of 2009. Simply continued from there when the full game was released a few years later. I can proudly say that I scored her good ending on my 1st try.

When I played the demo the first time, I got Kenji. The first girl I got was Rin, after loading my last save and making the opposite choice at the end. Then I got Kenji a couple more times and then looked up the flowchart online in frustration.

The issue is that I was trying to go for Lilly and thus avoided options that looked like they were associated with the other girls, but I didn't realize that Lilly and Hanako are a package deal, so avoiding Hanako locked me out of Lilly's route and thus sent me straight to Roofville.


Incidentally, I really don't understand why everyone claims Rin's route is hard to get though. If you answer each choice randomly, Rin is actually the second most likely after Emi (not counting Kenji of course). Shizune, Lilly, and Hanako all require you to make a specific sequence of choices (some of which were rather unclear in the demo) while Rin merely requires you to not pursue the other girls and then join the art club at the end.

There's something both hilarious and sad about that. I don't think I've ever seen anyone say they got Kenji the first time, and I know I've never seen anyone say they got Kenji multiple times before they were able to get any of the other girls.
