Since I played Katawa Shoujo, the game had changed me, emotionally and physically, I don't know what I can do after I've completed this game 100% It'll take like 30 mins now. I've completed most good endings and normally I'd skip to a part which it turns to a bad ending but if i dont i have to play the whole story from start and I dont wanna do thatfor some reason.

I really can't forget about katawa shoujo, once i 100%'d it, idk what to do, I want to play Katawa Shoujo even more but I complete it.. I'm getting worried.
Don't worry breh, you'll eventually get over the game. Took me about a week, but there's always something new that'll catch your interest.

Yeah same thing happened to me, all i could think about was KS and i didn't think i would ever get it out of my head. Eventually after i beat it, i lost interest and moved on to something else, i think i discovered the anime on Hetalia and moved on to that, though im always watching or playing and enjoying and then moving on to a new thing after, its a cycle.

KS was great though, i would love to go through it again sometime, but i would rather wait a while, so its not as fresh in my head, sometimes makes me wish i could just forget all that happened to experience it fresh again.

I too have suffered from the "FEELS" after beating Emi's arc to start the game, then Lilly after (to try and stop thinking about Emi's nonetheless...) and honestly this thread itself has already helped a lot. Just the fact that I'm definitely not the only one to feel sad and somewhat empty after beating the game is a good feeling. It's always tough ending a game that draws you in so much similar to a game like Mass Effect, or the various Final Fantasy games, but this one has been harder simply because even though it's a shorter amount of time, it draws you in more. You start as the player (ie yourself just playing a game), and end up as Hisao himself. Then it's just over, and I think that's why a lot of us get the 'FEELS' in the first place.

Overall, a message to the OP is that time heals all wounds. Seriously. Even if you don't find a preoccupying hobby/activity you will find that how you feel after a week is less than how you felt after the first day, or that first day itself. And so on and so forth.

oh yeah, there's also booze, but I wouldn't go with that, I for an example, get into a funny mood, then 2-3 hours laters is all laments about how I've always screwed up with the girls I've liked or that fell for me. Pathetic, I must say so myself.

Sadly I can't drink booze, I'm 13.

Well you CAN, just not legally :lol:

Start running/working out, as people have already said. It's both great for your body and your mind.

Got all 5 good endings on first try, so I never even experienced any of the "supersad bawwhaww" moments. However, from what I've heard, they're pretty goddamn heartwrenching, so I don't see why you'd specifically go for those endings, unless of course you have a fetish for tragedy...

I doubt they really add much in the way of characterisation, so it shouldn't be necessary to go through them in order to get a better feel for the characters; if that's what you're worried about?

I would argue that the bad endings for Shizune and Hanako add a little something, and moving from the bad route to good ending for Emi makes for a more satisfying redemption for Hisao. But yeah, if you've seen what you want to see, no one's making you go back.
Hanako's favorite joke is The Aristocrats, but she never tells it because Lilly finds it really offensive. Instead, she practices her delivery in front of a mirror when she's alone. It's the only time she never stammers.

I play KS, I leave the adult scenes on. I feel special that I'm the only 13 yr old that plays this :D .

Well I get feels, you can get them at any age if you get the meaning of the words the characters say.

I agree, those 'feels' get to be a real pain in the ass sometimes. But if you can manage them at that age? Power to ya man.
