"The most canon" is a nonsensical phrase. Something either is canon or it isn't canon. There are no degrees.

That said...I opt for the fanart-dictated ending of "That whole Yamaku thing was a coma dream."
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'm pretty lost here. Is this canon as in 'in the VN' cos if that's the case, then all of them!
Was there some kind of pre-story beforehand - I know it was developed from a series of Raita's sketches, but was there a whole story thing? If so, that might be why I'm pretty lost :)

No, there's no pre-story. All there is is Raita's sketch.

So all the endings are canon.

Maybe you should rephrase the question to "Which ending would you like to be the true ending if there was one?" since that's probably the question that most people are going to answer anyway^^°

Emi's good ending. Screw Hanako's dreams. Screw Rin's dreams. Screw Lilly's dreams. Screw Shizune's dreams. Bestgirl wins.

Just kidding.

And who would even begin to imagine making the bad endings canon? Eugh...

Well everything in Katawa Shoujo is cannon, if the meaning of the term serves me right. No matter which ending you'll get.
Or is this a question of "Which ending do you see the most logical?"?

If that is the case: Fuck that noise, Hanako's good ending is my favourite.
And to all Emi fanboys (Aaron): Yeah I know Emi's ending is much deeper and all the good shit.
Misha: "Oh, Hi, I'm Misha and this is my hetero-life-mate, Silent Shicchan."

Hanako's good ending is pretty good, but you're right, I am gonna stick to my fanboydom on this one, by which I mean it's much deeper and shit ;) (If I'm honest, my favourite ending, and just ending, is actually Lilly's, but don't tell anyone)

I don't really think there is such a thing, but on a purely subjective level I think of my first playthrough has the slightest edge in terms of "what really happened".

All of the storylines and their endings are canon. Since this means that, in a way, Hisao ends up with everyone, then on some metatextual level that's a harem ending, so that's what I'll vote for. :p

Is the physical world even real, man? Maybe the reflection of his idea of a harem is the canon ending, and all of the girls in it are just illusions.

Well, since there is no one true cannon ending, I'll stick with rin, as that is my personal favourite.

You're all wrong. Harem ending is not cannon. Only 1 thing is true. The girls were computer generated because Hisao couldn't play sports he wrote KS to entertain himself.

My vote's for the ending where Hisao, Mutou and Nurse get completely slattered one night in the city and have to figure out where they are, why they have a monkey and where Rin's gotten to.
Like stupid, silly doodles with no point? You've come to the right place, friend :^)
I also occasionally write oneshots. Why not have a skimread?
