In Rin's, its almost as if they cut themselves off from any contact withthe outside wirld. Hell, they even blow off Emi. The whole arc just seems bereft of human contact.
I can definitely see this side of it. Of course, this exact same factor also makes it a lot more focused upon only Rin and fewer others than in the other paths. Couple that with loneliness and a detached feeling and yeah...it's not easy if you really get invested in it emotionally.

But I guess that's what just makes the payoff for that investment at the end twice as sweet. Especially if you find some way to tie that payoff into your own life. :)

We (or at least, I) don't "need" the KS character to change my life, it merely helped me find a different perspective on my own life. Even people addicted to the stereotypical "ban all the violent games ruining the next generation!" type games do not generally lose their grasp on reality, having it in addition to their normal life, although the time split between them can be worrying (I know :lol: )

I guess what I'm saying is that things can be inspiring without infringing on a healthy, sane person's understanding of reality. If you're saying this through first hand experience, I apologise, and I hope your therapy is going well.
Im not in Therapy ( there was a time or two i could of use it in my life of course ) but im pretty healthy mentally and emotionally right now ... but again and again i hear the same thing " i get inspiration from hanako , emi and so on " ... and in my 32 years on earth a fictional character , place , or story never inspired anything good or bad ( i also dont believe that violent game cause ppl to kill ) ... i heard ppl say so and so inspired me to do this but where is the proof ... hanako WON'T inspire anyone to be a better person as much as you say she will ...

Emi doesn't inspire me to exercise , Shizune doesn't Inspire me to be more responsible ,lilly doesn't Inspire me to be more caring ... I am who i am because of my own fuck ups in life and learning from them , my loyal friends , my family and wanting to be a better person , I play KS because its a game plan and simple .... most people are treating KS like a life couch

Now excuse me well i get inspired on how to respect a woman from watching hentai / porn
Playing 'Rewrite' made me a lot more conscious of the environment; and I'd had the same opinion as you back then; so every now and then, it really does work with some people.

I can't think of one i especially got attached and related to, at the moment. But mostly, i believe i'm more like Rin. I believe nearly as much, i'm like Shizune. Hanako most of my childhood. A lot like Hisao (maybe it's just a guy thing) Never, like Emi or Lilly. I have Rin skin; probably 'cause, i've always been withdrawn, detached from everything & everyone. Almost never confide in any one my thoughts, when i do, nobody gets it & i sound stupid. But i don't have her confidence. I'm learning to express myself efficiently nowadays & whatever i can't, i keep to myself. As a result, i get a little less like Rin each day. Growing up does that to you. When you start caring if people think you're weird. And you try to conform to socially accepted mannerisms. All my life i've had a Shizune in me, i owe all my accomplishments to it, academic or otherwise. But i don't have her confidence either. That's how the hanako in me was born. Never was good with people. The younger i was, the worse. Was the new kid countless times. Stayed in class all the time, reading or drawing. Popular academically, which only made it worse. (i'm not going to say i'm an artist too, which i am ) But i owe all my creativity to the Rin within. I always looked at things from my perspective, untainted by foreign thoughts. 'Cause when you're a kid there are no rules. Yes my skin was Rin-iest as a kid. Maybe it's cause i'm still a kid? Anyway I can't pick just one. Although i 'm different from most of them, i related a lot to damn near everyone, that's why i enjoyed it so much. As to getting attached, it's not gonna be because of my childhood, philosophy on life or anything like that. Just how much i like her! ....or him
And i wanna say Shizu, I wanna say Rin...let me leave it at that

even though i've only played through lilly's and shizune's arc and a small amount of rins. (excluding white knight hanako syndrome) I found that shizune is the character that is on an intellectually as well as emotionally get attached to the easiest. It felt like there was alot more meaning that could be discerned from everything she said(signed), (the whole thinking before talking thing was discussed kind of detail in game) and well she wasn't really able to beat around the bush too much because of the nature of sign language. It was much more upfront and demanding tone that requires you to think more about whats going on. Not to mention that its harder to read into whats going on because the complete lack of tone that we're accustomed to using as a tellall about how someone feels or is thinking.
(minor spoilers beyond this point, not really anything important but whatever I dont want to ruin anything)
I guess because of this I felt more involved in shizune's arc and that it was more then, cute girl/white knight syndrome which happens a bit with lilly/hanako (dont get me wrong they are amazing but...theres just a little something more to shizune i think.) Although shizune's arc ended on a high note, I kind of wished it was ended a bit more securely relationship wise rather then just "oh im going to definitely pursue her because we're all still friends kind of thing". but at the same time this made me think about the whole thing more, Would it work out? would anymore major communication issue's arise? what about shizune's crazy father? What about the awkward family relations with the other girls and so on and soforth.


everything above may be rambling a bit but...meh just typing what I'm thinking X3

Even without the combine, Shizune without glasses and a large earring = win.

I agree. She looks oddly alluring under those circumstances...

You hardly see her smile in canon. And no large earrings too.

Why does she need to smile if she's deaf?

And I still wonder why none of the girls at Yamaku wear earrings.
