Best story arc

Post by Althamus » Fri Feb 17, 2012 9:40 am

Since we seem to be going through a rash of polls at the moment on which girl is our favourite/least/middling, I figured it'd be interesting to have a similar poll to see which story arc people preferred, and whether it tied in with the favourite character poll.

I let people vote up to three times, depending on preference, mostly because the favourite girl poll did the same.

For me personally, my two favourite arcs are Emi's and Lilly's. I'm a bit of a sucker for standard love stories, boy meets girl, confesses in the rain, trials and tribulations, love finds a way in the end, happy feeling all round, curtain closes. The fact that Lilly and Emi are two of my favourite characters as well helps I guess :P

In terms of which was best written, I'd have to also include Hanako's arc into the mix... I thought that was really well done, and I could relate to it a lot on a personal level. Still not played Rin's arc yet (started Act 1 for the last time last night Q_Q) but once I finish that, I may have a new 'best quality' arc, from what I hear about Rin.
Routes played: Emi (10/10), Shizune (6/10), Lilly (9/10), Hanako (9/10), Rin (7.5/10)
Emi > Hanako = Lilly > Rin > Shizune

It's gonna be Hanako's arc, since it hit so close to home on some levels, and i just adore that girl with all my heart!

Rin's. The emotional turmoil it made me feel was on a whole 'nother level compared to the other girls' routes.

Lilly's was the best because I was the first to be in her path.

Shizoon because I like her character+story.

Lilly because I like her character+story.

But the best mini-movie there was in KS belongs to Hanako's. Well done!
What if life had a soundtrack similar to Katawa Shoujo's ?

Lilly's, Hanko's and Kenji's. That Kenji scene was beyond hilarious, and I have no problem naming it as my 3rd fav "route" after Lilly/Hanako.
Lilly path > Hanako path >>>> Shizune path > Emi path > Rin path.

My most heart wrenching moment...Misha getting a haircut.

I voted first for Lilly because her route gave me all sorts of highs and lows and warm fuzzies at the end. It was a tough call choosing between her and Emi though, because her route put me through some of the same feelings.

Next I voted for Rin because her route did a number on me.

Finally I voted for Shizune. I still think it had more potential, but her route was pretty good for what it is. It's not supposed to be like the others. More then that, out of all the bad ends, Shizune's made me lose it and I had to walk away from the computer for a few minutes to recompose myself.

1st. Lilly's - It's safe to say, after all the feels that Emi gave me, that Lilly's arc was the best written.
2nd. Emi's - But I do have consideration for all the feels she gave me.
3rd. Rin's - TOUGH choice between hers and Hanako's. Interestingly enough, Hanako's route is the only one I plan on replaying.
While we are here discussing, Hanako is somewhere hopping from dark to darker tiles. Alone.
