Same. I can't hear "Pink Triangle" by Weezer without thinking of Misha.

Illusion by VNV Nation makes me think really hard of Rin, especially during her bad ending.

Claude Debussy - Clair de Lune

No matter how many times I listen to this, I still get goosebumps. The feels go to 11 at around the 1:45 mark.

The recording is from a pretty great anime with a lot of good classical stuff. Chopin's "Winter Wind" etude for example, which doesn't really remind me of KS like the other one does (though the character that plays it is named Emi), but deserves note for being a generally awesome piece of music.

Something about "Waves" just strikes me as a Katawa sort of song. Maybe it's the lighter feel to the music itself, while the lyrics related to Hisao's struggles to stay afloat post-surgery.
"Spunky at his Spunkyest/Spunkiest"

Hands on the Water by Skyhill immediately reminded me of Lilly's route. Mostly in the lyrics.

BABYMETAL - Gimme Chocolate!!

Reminded me of... well.... you know.

I've been trying like hell to hate this band/group/whatever and so far I'm failing quite spectacularly at it.

BABYMETAL's slogan may as well be "You should hate us BUT YOU CAN'T!"

Katawa Shoujo Tribute "Hurt"

I vaguely recall posting this before... might have even been in this thread? I dunno. Anyway, this is just fucking *brilliantly* done. If KS needed a "trailer" of sorts for promotional purposes this would get my vote, despite it being a bit of a spoiler for those who haven't played through yet. Of course for those who have, the images and the way they play off the lyrics as they're sung make for a drop-kick straight to the feels. You have been warned! :)

You know, even Trent Reznor thinks the Johnny Cash version is better.

As he put it...

"Hurt" immediately turns anything into the saddest thing ever. :cry: (Fuckin' Rick & Morty...)

Pretty sure Reznor and thousands more did too in their way.

I'm so bummed that Catherine Coulson passed away. The new episodes won't be the same without her. I'm sure her log has something to say about this, but I guess we'll never know...
