:D I'm perfectly aware those were an April Fool's joke. I was just wondering if the joke had any roots in 'reality', though. Thanks for the clarifications!

Could you elaborate on this?
You know when you've been writing a story, and you think to yourself "yeah, I think it makes sense that this character would be bisexual," but then you also realize that there's no way to bring it up or show it without it being A Thing that would probably distract players from the story you're trying to tell, because who cares if she's bisexual (answer: some of the audience probably does, and will argue ways to show that she wasn't really bisexual, just curious, or there's no way he could be gay, because that's for some reason terrifying for a lot of dudes to consider (or in the case of poor Misha, will argue that she couldn't really be an out-and-out lesbian, because that means that I as a dude have no shot with this imaginary girl, so I will ignore what she says and call her bisexual), and go on to possibly miss the point entirely), it doesn't have really anything to do with anything?

Basically like that--the sexuality of most of the characters never really comes up--so what's the point of pulling a Dumbledore and being like "oh by the way the whole time I was writing Muto I was thinking of how he's probably gay" or something like that (FULL DISCLOSURE: I did not actually think of Muto as gay, although if you want to look hard at the way Tennant's Doctor flirts with Captain Jack and pretend that's relevant to the discussion, feel free). It adds nothing to the narrative, it's just a bullet point to put on TV Tropes--hooray, we ticked the box for "CLOSET CASE" or "FAUXMOSEXUAL" or whatever the fuck category they decide to shoehorn it in. Stuck under WORD OF GOD, because I typed it up just now on this message board.

EDIT: Jesus that came off a bit angry, didn't it? The long and short of it is that it wasn't important to the plot to outright state characters' sexuality (well, apart from Misha), so whatever I imagined while writing them isn't really important.

So, what you're saying is that Nomiya is bisexual?

:wink:

This seems like a valid question. :lol:

Slightly. Maybe deservedly so.

Just so you know though, I really was under the impression at the time that nobody would be depressed enough to take it from somebody they weren't attracted to, and I also didn't think that "I like girls" = "I only like girls" so even if I was flawed with my logic, my intentions were a lot better with my recent topic than "lel but I want Pink Loud durhurr" and I wasn't just flat out ignoring what she was saying.

She is the one character where her sexuality would totally change the context of a scene, and it's left vague exactly what it is.

That is fandom in a nutshell nowadays.
As soon as you let two charakters shake hands, the fans will find a way to ship them. That is proven in several fanfics and fanarts in ANY universe.
I don't get that and I can understand if the writer of said charakters would be pissed off.

What would Bram Stoker say if he read that Dracula was giving a blowjob to Abraham Van Helsing?
Probably: "The fuck? I don't even."

Big enough? :mrgreen:

We have no "official" cover art to the game, so I suppose this one could be as good as any. Or you could go look up the release blogpost. :)

Hi!, 2 quick questions.
What's the first name of Emi's dad? I saw it the other day and I've spent the last 2 days scouring the net to find it again with no luck.
What's the Japanese equivalent of "nana".

Thanks all!
