Yeah, I don't understand that...Also why I refuse censors or cuts in anything I play/read/watch. Hentai game? Don't care who's around, no censor. Book? Uncut edition. Film? Director's cut. Hell, a show from Japan had scenes of dwarf sex cut from the DVD and despite no dwarf fetish whatsoever, I still hunted those down because dammit, that's how the creator made it.

Amen to that. I grew up in the days before dvd's when most anime was cut, chopped, dubbed, and edited. So I i have no tolerance for any kind of censorship.

Yep. I don't know Japanese, but I assume he's saying something along the lines of "Hey, she doesn't have a thing!"

In the English dub, he says something along the lines of "Your balls! What happened to your balls?!"

And Bulma is 16 an supposedly Goku is supposed to be 14 at that time even though he's like 3 feet tall.
Also, there's definitely nothing weird about the fact that Goku used his Grandpa's crotch as a pillow when he was little.

Favourite Music

Post by Bailey » Sun Nov 03, 2013 3:46 pm

Just searched the title of this thread and no others came up, so I'm pretty sure this hasn't been asked before...
What's your favourite song in Katawa Shoujo and what kind of music do you like in general?

Mine has to be the music played during Hanako's animation thing, it's amazing how it really fits the scene, and my favourite genre of music is EDM.
Hanako used to have no scaring... But that all changed when the fire nation attacked.

i would also go for the Hanako animation theme. Favorite genre would be social realism, not really sure how it is related at all to KS but whatever...

Well I thought it would be interesting to see if there were any links between favourite song in KS to favourite genre

In Katawa Shoujo, I like the tracks that would be considered background music, because those are the best at bringing back memories. Generally, I prefer instumental music over vocal music, so I mainly like classical/jazz.

The song's called "Jitter", IIRC.

All the animation tracks are really good, Emis, Shizunes and Hanako's are are my favorites out of the five. In game tracks ummmm Red velvet Is so smooth I slide right out of my chair every time I hear it. As for the really dramatic stuff Shadow of Truth sounds shivers down my spine every time I here it EVERY TIME, and I listen to it in public so you can imagine the odd looks. Honorary mention to Moment of Decision.

How could there be? The music in KS doesn't exactly span across genres...

Anyway, the sad music from Emi and Hanako's routes are good. And that one that plays when Hisao's just walking around doing nothing.
<KeiichiO>: "I wonder what Misha's WAHAHA's sound like with a cock stuffed down her throat..."
<Ascension>: "I laughed, cried, vomited in my mouth a little, and even had time for marshmallows afterwards. Well played, Xanatos. Well played."
<KeiichiO>: "That's a beautiful response to chocolate."
