Dtipbijays is crap. Worth a single read, but be prepared.
And the password is "Morgan" iirc, but the result is disgusting.

Don't get your hopes up, so far the anime has been a rather poor adaption of the game. The entire thing feels rushed and comes across as fanservice for those that enjoyed the source material. That being said, I'm still watching it, if just to see my favourite characters animated.

You could talk with the devs on their forum... I bought Fading Hearts a couple years ago after reading its reviews on RPGFan and Gamertell... and never quite got around to reading it. I provided them with gameplay/story feedback on an early build of Infinite Game Works, but I didn't make time to read it again.

Most of the recommendations that I make are based on stuff I read between about 2002 and 2010. To put things in perspective, I was really enthusiastic about reading VNs in the mid 2000s, but I was not especially active on forums at the time. Over the last six months, I've barely read any VNs other than Hakuouki, but I have been posting quite a bit on Lemma Soft, Reddit /visualnovels/, and other forums.
It's worth a read if you enjoy unintentional comedy. :P

Clannad is somewhat good. The art is horrible, but the music makes up for it. There is no sexual content, though - instead it focuses on the importance of family.
Doki made a pretty good translation patch a few years ago.

Be prepared for spending a very long time in front of the computer if you want to 100% it. :wink:

I got Little Busters! the other day, and just got done with my first route, not very many feels, a few here and there, but it was pretty hilarious through most of it, and fun as hell to boot

There isn't much of an emotional impact in the first few routes. It comes through as a very high dose in the final route "Refrain", though.

Well it seems I won't be able to start reading VNs in Japanese before AIR is translated, because a patch will be released within the next few days. :P

Thanks to this topic I've gone ahead and played through "Don't take it personally babe", "True Remembrance", and now "Ever17".
My favorite VN is still KS, but I have enjoyed the other VNs a great deal too!
Still have Fate/Stay Night and Narcissu to go ^^
(Fate/Stay Night is so expensive...)

Very true, hopefully Amaterasu doesn't pick it up, otherwise it'll be translated within a few months and I won't make it in time for that either. :D

Fully translated Grisaia patch got released a few days ago if anyone is interested. Haven't really read any VNs in quite a long while aside from Danganronpa so plan on starting it tonight. Anyone else playing it?
