Decided to go and download and play through KS again after like... what... two years?

I went down Hanako's path again. Initially, I felt the pacing seemed a little slow at times, but towards the tail end of the route, I remembered why I enjoyed this game so much and why I enjoyed Hanako as a character so much. I even discovered a couple of other things that I kinda glanced over the first time and grew to appreciate the route that much more. Like:

Hisao's character development over his desire to protect Hanako in fear of losing her. Just made the payoff that much stronger.

Katawa Shoujo really is something special. I'm glad I had the chance to play it when it came out.

Nice to see people coming back to KS and also learn new stuff that they havent noticed before. I myself havent touched KS for half a year I think, just keeping myself busy with games & anime, but someday I'll replay KS :lol:

On a somewhat related note, it seems to me its kinda hard to find a decent rom/com anime's today, often plagued with no real development in the end or very bad pacing and filled with filler episodes. I can only guess its the same with VN's when you have read most of the popular/good ones, you start to notice the things you dislike more and more because you experienced them already and learn more of what you like as a reader when you move on to other stuff.

Fantastic rom/com anime from the top of my head:
- Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo (ah I just noticed you have a Shiina avatar... Well, disregard this one then :P )
- Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou
- Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-Kun
- Tonari no Kaibutsu-Kun
- Toradora!
- Lovely★Complex (you don't mind shoujo, do you?)
- Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru.
- Kimi to Boku. (season 1 & 2)

NHK ni Youkoso! is probably my favourite romcom but that's only if you enjoy dark humour, otherwise this one is just gonna make you depressed...

Anyway, to get back on the subject of Katawa Shoujo..

Doesn't anyone else find it surprising that despite the enormous amount of talented individuals on the interwebz who draw KS fan art, there's still less than a handful of KS doujins? There are those awesome 4-Koma Pimmy made, that crappy H-doujin from Palcomix, and that weird Misha futanari comic, and...am I missing anything?

More so than I thought. I had Misha in her epilogue arc becoming a UN interpreter. Today's newsfeed has THIS piece via IO9.

Let me quote a paragraph from it:
I walked upstairs to a glass-fronted booth, where I prepared to witness something both absolutely remarkable and utterly routine. The booth was about the size of a garden shed, and well lit but stuffy. Below us were the gently curving desks of the delegate hall, which was about half-full, occupied mostly by men in suits. I sat down between two interpreters named Marisa Pinkney and Carmen Soliño...
Just hold on a minute. I'm sure that the first interpreter is using an alias. She must be none other than our cyborg friend! :D

Marisa Pinkney = pink Misha? Makes sense!

Everyone knows Misha actually goes on to become Crown princess of Nova anyway.

Back on track...

I've recently been playing a number of rounds of my new obsession, Space Station 13, as KS characters.

There's nothing more fun than naming a Mime "Shizune Hakamichi" and waiting for that one other KS player to recognize you.

Sounds like that time when I went to (my first and only) anime and gaming convention in town dressed as Hisao.

Pro tip: this game does not use easily recognizable attire, so just dressing up in a shirt and pants won't cut it. Stop into the local burn ward and see if you can borrow a patient for a while, or stop into the zoo and see how well a pink wig fits on a rhino, then take that along with you.

Actually, I figured the reverse; she was Crown Princess of Nova, took an otherwise-fatal assassination hit and was spirited away to another country for repairs. The Misha we see in KS is the Crown Princess with severe memory lapses and other debilities caused by her experiences.

Guys, stop. I totally can't stand the idea of that game because if I play it I'll be super paranoid and probably get Elodie killed and feel guilty about it 'cuz she's mad cute, and it would be way worse if that was Misha.

Let's talk about the fact that Rin, ironically, paints just about everything but her nails instead. :)

I'd imagine it'd be very difficult for her to paint her nails...
