Dudes, seriously?

Post by pommesbunker » Tue Jul 23, 2013 9:08 pm

Okay, it's 3 in the morning.

A few minutes ago i finished the last ending on Hanakos path.

Maaaaan, Dudes, I don't know what to say. But I'll try it this way:

I'm not a fan of Animes, Mangas, Visual Novels and so on, but in the past days I saw this game almost everywhere. I mean it. On almost everyboard Board was a Thread about this game and how awesome it is, the feels are so strong blablablbla, you know what I mean. I go to the homepage and read some stuff about the game and the charackters. And this was the event which made me curious: I've got a big scar on my stomach because of an operation when I was 18 months old. I was different and it was very hard to socialise in a normal class, when you're the only one, who's different and get a special treatment. So I thought I'd give it a shot. This is where my feedback starts:

The opening scene was a cliché through and through. He's waiting for her and something happens to him. But that's okay. Nothing's wrong with that. His time in the hospital was okay, too. The first scene that hit me was when he came into his new class.

So, he see those people, those disabled people, and you almost can feel how uncomfrotable he is. And my thoughts were "Haha, I remember this :D" (You know, special class and so on.) And it caught me. I wanted to know more of the charackters and how they think, live and so on. I only played 2 other Visual Novels, so I didn't knew, how my choices effect the future gameplay. And as a deep-rooted roleplayer all choices are only made once, there's no way back (at least in the first gameplay). So it took me to the path of Hanako. After a while I got used to her, smiled when I saw her smile (how pathetic) and was worried when something happend to her. Like I said, I almost knew too good what she was going through, kinda. Everything about her was just perfect (not to say Mary Sue, in a good way), even with the scars. And I know, yes, it's a game, and yes, it's animestyle-thingyish, but, what bothers me the most is her hair. For gosh's sake, her whole back is burned, but her hair is perfectly fine, while she look's like Two-Face? A buddy of mine has only a few bushes of hair on his head, his back looks the same, his face is even worse than her. Just wanted to say that.

So, I got the bad ending. Misstep. The face, when she cried at him, oh god, I was ... scared, sad, and a lot of other feelings to. It was so intense. While I write this, her face and those mixed feelings are in the back of my head. The worst part is, at the scene, after Lilly leaves, you can chose wether to go back or in the city, I wanted to go to the city with her, but I misclicked and BAM! Everything's fuc*ed up.

I searched for other reactions and found this board, also, the endings. I tried it again, and got the other two endings. The good one was so hearthwarming, I almost cried. Also the normal ending, if you call it that way, was cute.

So, I'm sooooo freakin' pumped to play the other persons and hope, to get everything without cheating. :D

That's it, I hope I can sleep now,
a tired Pommes

Hanako does that to a person. Welcome to the board. Looking forward to your impressions of the other girls.

I don't quite remember, can you still get a bad ending after seeing this card? If yes, then it must be the worst feeling ever.

Also, I adore your nickname. French fries bunker. Hrhr. Funnily enough you could make a bunker out of McDonald's'... McDonalds'... HOW THE HELL DOES ONE MAKE A PLURAL OWNERSHIP OF McDonald's?
Anyway, from what I've heard, McD fries are pretty much indestructible.

Yep, I think you can. Everything depends what you will do after Lily leaves.

*removes dust from the thread*

Huh, is this even allowed or is this some kind of necrophilia?

Well, it's been some time. In only two years, I made it to finish 3 other routes. Lilly, Rin and Shizune. In that order. I finished the latter just about an hour ago.

I don't even know where to begin. Like I said, 2 years for those playthroughs. So, I'm going straight forward.

About two months after my first playthrough, I went on another journey, and kind of ended up with Lilly. It was such a nice one. I liked the attitude of her, that ... high class, always choosing the right word thing. You know what I mean. It was nice to spend time with her, kinda. I really enjoyed it, but didn't get as attached as with Hanako. (Probably because it's the second run through the game). I don't remember the details, but the ending made me warm and fuzzy inside my tummy, which is a very nice feeling. And because of that, I thought it's good to take another break.

Then, early in 2014, I found the game on my harddrive, and started it. This time I choose Rin. From the threads over the internet I thought it's going to be a good one. But boy, was I disappointed. I guess I couldn't get my mind around her, she was way to strange. For me it was more of a "I want to know what happens, so I keep on playing" kinda thing. I don't remember a lot, because of that. I remember none of the endings had an effect on me. It went straight through me. So I thought I never finish the remaining routes.

Buuut, as I was browsing on YouTube, I stumbled upon a song from the game. Time has changed, so I can't play it on my computer. But luckily someone made an android port, which works really nice. So I got it on my phone and played on the work from home to work and vice versa. Obviously I went for the next Arc, which happened to be the one of Shicchan.

(Just FYI, I grew older over time, mentaly. So the game had an entirely other effect on me.)

When I started it, I was kind of excited, because of the nostalgia feelings and memories. The route was really nice, and I had really fun of playing the game again. To sum things up, everythin went the way I thought. How Shizune's mind works, about Misha, and all. I took the surprise away by myself. Kinda sucks, but well, I enjoyed it anyway. And I even got the fuzzy feeling in the end of the good end, even when it was short and abrupt, at least it seemed to me that way.

So, why am I writing this? Because I want to. As simple as that. I read some other feedbacks and they wrote about details which I didn't even think about. I thinks it's just lika a vent.

Well, I guess that's it. Please ignore any mistakes and such, hard day at work. :D

Have a good one, enjoy the day,
