I officially hate Shizune.
She made Hanako seem pathetic when they were playing chess, how dare she.
I still want to glomp Hanako.
She also made Lily feel like shit
But to be fair, she was nice during Hanako's arc, and redeemed herself in Lily's arc. Why must she be a bitch in her own damn route?
Shizune in Hanako's arc? Must've missed her, my eyes were only on Hanako.
There's a thread for this?
Sure is Jessica
Yes, there is a KS thread. A GLORIOUS KS THREAD
But he scared my Hanako!
This thread needs moar HRRRNNGHHH
The only VN I bothered to finish an entire route in...
Hanako for lifeeeeeeeeeeeeeee; best route
So shy So cute pek
You really should play Emi and Rin's.
They don't interest me.
As far as I'm concerned Hanako da best~! Screw the rest (well...you do but lol)
I agree, liked her the moment I saw her, loved her the moment of the first interaction with her. pek
Some one who doesn't want to play Rin's route? Blasphemy
Someone who doesn't want to play ALL of the routes? Blasphemy!
You can't say that without going through them. Don't be a d-bag. I went through all the routes.
LMAO that song never fails to make me laugh---
B-but still, my feels for Hanako ;_;
There should be an apart route wherein Hanako and Lilly end up together.
^ Wasn't that in the forums? I forget.... the answers before 'Lily's' post were HI-larious! They actually bought the story
May as well contribute something to this thread:
A couple more pics:
EDIT: Adding one more:
Continuing the nonexistant tradition:
So I'm replaying KS, and I go down the best (read: Rin) route (excluding Kenji's, his transcends any feminist ranking system), and I get to the part where Rin meets up with Hisao on the roof, when Emi has a cold.
And Rin and Hisao are talking, and Rin talks about the sky, and how it's perfect. And even though it changes, it still stays the same.
And then the scene where Rin hugs Hisao comes.
and then I pull a Hisao.
When I first played through it, I didn't really pay attention to that scene (minus the hug obviously). But looking through it again, that scene was really powerful. One of my favorite scenes, along with Rin and Hisao's indirect kisses, and the good ending scene.
I played this one and ended up with Emi,I must say that Emi's story was really well-written,if this VN had any hope of animation,i'd wish Emi's route would be animated (but Lily's route will be animated if this series would ever get an animation.)
What do you mean?
Hmmm looks like i came late to this party, but i've stayed up way too late playing this.
Completed Three routes, Shizune, Emi and Rin.
Well, techically four routes if you count that manly picnic heh, which cropped up at random on my second try. That Kenji is a paragon of true manliness. He has opened my eyes to the evils of feminist conspiracy, and so tommorow at work i shall stride in and size power from the women at work, it's what he'd want me to do!
Anyway not sure which route i preferrd so far. Maybe Emi's. Will try to clear t'other routes tommorow...
anyway, its a pretty well written VN indeed!
Yeah, I perfer Emi and Lilly's routes as my favorites in the game.
Hmm, that Hanako route was stupidly heartwarming.
Even if Hisao can annoy me by being a whiny chump at times...
Think so far i'd rate them 1> Hanako
... should really be in bed, but i suppose i can at least start the final route heh...
Maybe a manly picnic would help me stay awake ....
Haven't been through Lilly's route yet, have you?
And i'm all done, barring the last few percentage of completion, although i'm not sure i want to get the bad ends, i'm a delicate soul.
Anyway, general thoughts are this was an amazingly well done VN for an amateur project essentially. It's also pretty amazing how well they treat the subject matter. it could well have been that sick game where you get to screw a lot of cripples like i've seen mentioned, but really it's a very tasteful story, with plenty of heartwarming moments.
Final thoughts about all the routes (and my main man kenji) under the spoilers. If anyone wanders into this thread like me who hasn't given this a try yet i say go for it!
Anyway, now in order from leats favorite to most i shall explore the paths...
I have to say this is the one route that didn't wring much emotion out of me. Rin was simply too odd to empathise with. It was certainly well written and all, and the only route i got a bad end on, which shows it actually has a bit of choice, but meh... just didn't feel it.
I can see why some people are bored with this route as it's very wordy and has like... no choices... pretty much the weakest route in terms of a technical standpoint, but i liked the interplay with Misha and Shizune and the slowly unfolding relationship was quite charming
This is where the whole thing gets god-tier, from Emi on up. This was an arc of perfection, her struggle realised beautifully, and a very warm relationship growing. The highly amusing anal sex scene was an added bonus *wink*
Hanako and Lilly
Lumping these two routes together and they not only go together but were equally uber.
Hanako's route is utterly heartwrenching. Unlike Rin's route Hanako's deep flaws are easier to understand and relate to, and are handled brilliantly. Plus the ending is like... like just awwwww *hugs*
Lilly's route i'm glad i did last as it seems to come full circle with the start of the tale, and it does seem that the most effort went into writing it, even if it does suffer from the illusion of choice, as while there are choices they don't seem to do very much heh. It's also probably what i would consider the Heaven's Feel route of this game, as the most good happens to the most people, i.e Hanako recovers somewhat from her fears, there is a little fence-building between Shizune and Lilly, and of course the obvious...
Still, both these routes were amazing, easily the equal of a proffesional game in my opinion.
Anyway, onto kenji. The man is just a ball of comedy gold. The way his humour is delivered reminds me a lot of Homestuck for some reason. I reckon he'd fit right in there... and you know, i was left wondering if he was the Boyfriend Yuuko had who left suddenly... a wierd out there theory i know, but there are kinda hints splashed over all five routes... maybe i'm imagining it as Kenji deserves to be that boss, who knows...
anyway, the one critisim i have this that act 1 is repetetive as hades getting to all five routes, but hell, nothing is pefect, and this is near as damn it!
In conclusion, losing most of my sleep since sunday to blast through all the routes was well worth it!
Agree with the list.
This looks interesting. Any parts I should avoid or look past?
Like routes and such?
I feel bad for stopping after Hanako's route.
all of the bad endings
Quite. Sine i'm stuck at a loose end at home after being one-shot by a thug on holiday i decided to see about 100% completion, but i decided to run through the Hanak Route again first. By the time i'd done that i decided that i don't really want to see any of the bad ends....
Oh well, i guess this will syand as one of the few games i'm not going to fully complete...
Damn, the feels are powerful...
The feels, now in legimate 8-bit form:
Made by me, of course.
The Hanako bad ending was so heart-wrenching, but I had to do it for the CG.
> someone told me you can fuck people with disabilities in a game
> I decided to try it because I am sick like that
> got thrown off the roof by the end of act 1, the only person I saw naked was that big glasses fucker
Greatest game ever.
Wait 'till you see Emi's route.
I have no words for that route.
Separate names with a comma.
