I've been a little like this myself, although this was my first Visual Novel ever =P (hence the thread I made a few days ago, thanx for your input Harlequin 13 it helped), I'm easily affected by curtain themes and subjects which were brought up in several arcs, so I found myself relating heavily to the character's feelings. Also I didn't help I'm on holidays atm, see I tend to obsesses about things, the fact I don't have any work to occupy my mind means it tends to wander or fester over the same thing, which isan't healthily =P
That aside, once I look past these minor negative feelings I've had about the game, I can see how much fun I've had playing, for this game to make me feel these emotions means it's a wonderful piece of arts, few other media has done the same to me in the past.
Mm, I'm sure most people around here can relate. But I also think that many here aren't doing VNs for the first time ever so most likely they're aren't getting... Well... This "thing" right here anymore. Depressed? Is that the word? Nah couldn't be. Unless it's like a short-term depression or something. Well it doesn't last, that's for sure. I KNOW it doesn't. You get over it and the characters or whatever, but still remember the game itself.
Hanako was special. Gotta be honest on that one. Fictional character and all that but damn, it really went deep for someone like me. Shizune didn't get anywhere remotely similar though, even with the Misha situation
. I didn't really feel anything at all after that one. Now it's just a question of doing the other paths or not ever doing them, for me. Perhaps I just wanted/needed a break... Yea that's possible.
And I'm glad that you'll feel better if you aren't completely yet, this being your first VN. Perhaps you want to do something more? There are choices you know, good ones. All of them aren't about highschool teen romance or whatever though - maybe that's for the better.
