Well, that one fell flat.

Actually, on the subject of the soundtrack, there's one part of it that appeals to me not just because of the tune itself, but the title. Specifically, "Generic Happy Music." Just sounds like a funny title when you first see it, but when you consider that it's pretty much Misha's leitmotif, and that much of Misha's cheerful personality is a front to conceal the pain of unrequited love, suddenly the title takes on a whole new meaning.

Whoa, yes it does. Nice catch.

I liked the fact that when kenji is in the shower room, rather than cut off like 3 centimetres to obscure his dick they just put a leaf on it, weirdly it was this and when misha asks to be comfited that where to me the two funniest options of the game

I had quite the giggle at that one.

Hey, sometimes accidental puns are the best puns. But really, the beauty of a pun is in the "Oy!" of the beholder.

I dunno why, but the way the entirety of Iwanako's letter was written in Japanese for our reading/translating pleasure was something I really liked. But then, I'm a sucker for anything not in English, truth be told. I wonder if it stems from coming from the most linguistically useless part of the world: England.

Self-hating Englishman. That's a rare sight...

I just like the Japanese language. :lol: The symbols are nice.
I love the interpretation of Pac-Man where he's a just a lowly worker retrieving golf balls left all over the course by the rich masters and the ghosts are all previous workers who got conked on the head and killed by incoming golf balls in the line of duty.

I wouldn't call it the most linguistically useless part. I think its syncretist approach to vocabulary makes it delightful to use, though hell for the outsider (and often, the insider).

I like how one or two of Lilly and Hanako's sprites had some cultural meaning (when they cover their faces). Research it.

To even things out, I dislike how the lack of sprites for Hanako sometimes makes a tiny thing seem horrible, like in Lilly's path when Lilly cuts herself a little and Hanako just goes mouth agape.

I know how you feel :P I've changed the setting in World of Tanks so that when I'm driving a foreign tank, the crew speak in that language. I have no idea what the fuck they're saying, but I love it.

It's always saddening to find that 3/4 of our population don't even bother trying to lean a second language. We have French in our National Curriculum, but everyone just drops that as soon as they can :/
Fucking love French, it's so fun to speak :P

This is pretty much my point exactly. The school I went to specialised in languages but it seemed like most the pupils wanted to chuck them at the nearest chance they got. It's a shame, particularly when you look at the rest of the world, with many countries making conscious efforts to learn English. I know it's become a bit of a universal one but it'd be nice to at least TRY.

And don't get me STARTED on the holidaymakers that go abroad and refuse to learn the language... :evil:

I'll admit to being weak in my Spanish, but holy crap this one pisses me off. Going somewhere with another language? Learn it.
