I'm in the same boat, except it's been more like 5 months. Curse my selective memory.

I'll probably read it again, but I don't know when. I tried reading Lilly's route again, but I wasn't motivated enough, so I stopped in Arc 2. :(
I haven't even read any VN since I finished my first route in Kanon, and that was in June. :?

Well now that I'm a fan of the VN medium I definitely plan to replay KS in Janurary next year (aniversary of when I first booted it up to be exact, although I'm not quite sure why I remember the exact day), should be fun to see how it compares to the others I have played.

I always replay games, reread books, and rewatch movies. Ks is staying installed for a long time to come.

Katawa shoujo has changed my outlook on life. It's something I think everyone should read.

I will read it every year or so, sorta like how I've rewatched clannad.

i tend to forget things very easily, including important plot points

also i still haven't beaten Lily's route. should get on to that sometime. don't have as much motivation because i know Rin will always be my favorite cripple

Will I play it every day/week/month? No.

Will I play it every year? Absolutely and without exception.

I doubt it, I've finished the stories I wanted to play. The feels are wearing off, and I see the game for what it is, rather for what it makes me feel like. Still the most powerful piece of media my brain has ever absorbed emotionally.
It just makes me sad, I want to feel those feels because of something real, I want to love something real, and this game makes me more motivated to try and achieve something like that.
Maybe I'll play it again in a few years, but I doubt it.

If I finished my current fic an am writing a new one, I'll definitely will. Other than that, still reading them...reference material-wise

I actually first played it when it came out, and recently I just replayed the whole thing... well I have to finish Shizune's route, but I've finished every other route.

9 months isn't quite a year, but close enough that I'd say I've already played this game in a year. And in about another year, I could see myself playing it again.

Maybe, because I'm a little slow to finishing a single route and I want to have the 100%. The first time I played KS, it lasted about a month until I completed the Emi's Good Ending, so... :wink:

I can't believe that it's October already. It's been... what... 10 months since it came out?

Something that's 'just' a game has already changed my life a lot. Not just in terms of outside changes, but inside my head as well.

I'd intended to play it before now, but I'm going to be horrendously busy over the next month or so, and very busy around Christmas, so I can see it not getting played for a bit yet.

But I fully intend to start again in the New Year, 1 year anniversary. It'll be interesting to look at my life, and see what has changed in that year and what hasn't.
Routes played: Emi (10/10), Shizune (6/10), Lilly (9/10), Hanako (9/10), Rin (7.5/10)

I'll play it again, maybe in less than a year, maybe a bit more.

Honestly, I'm more interested to see who will be on this forum in a year and whether or not the community stagnates or dies.
