I don't know copypasta, I don't know what "minutiae" means, so call me on it if I use it, and finally I haven't played since february last year so my memory of details is kind of weak.
Terra Kagari is terrible simply because there's no real reason to feel attachment to her. Your first encounter with her is nothing interesting, and she's not even human at that point. When you meet her again she's smarter, but she's almost like a stuck up princess. You have to protect her for no real reason, and she's not even what I would call interesting. All the other girls are more fleshed out I would say, you can understand who they are and what they come from, as well as having more outgoing personalities. Terra Kagari was awful mostly in the sense that she's completely bland compared to every other girl in the entire series, no exceptions. Every single one.
I've been meaning to replay it for a while, maybe I'll start it up this weekend. Hope what I said is enlightening as opposed to nonsensical

Holy shit, quit trying to quantify emotional impact.
I, for one, found Terra's ending amazingly satisfying and in my opinion it definitely succeeded at what the author was trying to accomplish with it.
What you're complaining about is that nothing in Terra was anything like that part of Refrain where the vocal version of Haruka Kanata plays. You're complaining that it didn't make you shed endless amounts of tears. You're complaining that it didn't make you feel all the feels.
That's a stupid thing to complain about; Rewrite was never about making the player cry the same way that other Key games do. Blame the different head writer if you want to, but I don't think it's fair to blast a game for not being what you expected it to be.

Thank you for the full response, devoid of copypasta or whining about "how she treated Kotori in Kotori's route".
I... honestly, I can't call Kagari uninteresting at all, I fell in love with here generally because of the ridiculous things she says in Terra.
That said, I don't make a distinction between Kagaris to begin with, they're the same character to me anyway.

Different guy, but I simply expected to be engaged in the story, but with how it was handled, I couldn't do this. It didn't even feel mildly worth caring about in any way. The story may have been good if there was any reason for me to care about the plot, but there wasn't, so it failed for me.From the at least 50 routes I've read of varying sizes, it's byfar the least enjoyable and engaging

Kotori's route is Romeo's attempt to write something "Key-like". Lucia's route is R07's attempt to do the same while mixing in his own typical ridiculous crap.
It's always amused me that both of them succeeded at this while the only in-house writer failed miserably at his attempt with being Key-like in Shizuru's route.

Terra Kagari is the double of moongari.
Kotarou falls for her due to his spending who knows how many days with moongiri, sort of a inherited consciousness as a parting gift from moon.
Just because she's not human doesn't make the love between the two any less interesting or good.
She might have seemed bland to you but she was pretty interesting to me.
She was certainly more fleshed out than chihaya and shizuru, at the least.

First of all, you're a faggot, not for your opinion, just letting you know
Second, Key has always been known for their emotional endings. That's what made their company a success.
Third, you're free to like it, opinions are completely subjective, however your opinion is a bit out of the blue. He asked if the other routes was sad. As such I replied it had sad stuff, but the ending wasn't emotional. If you were looking for something moving, the ending lacked that. Plain and simple
Finally, off course I'm going to blame it for not being what I expect, it's like if I went to a Quentin Tarantino film and it turned out to be a romantic comedy set in post WW1 Germany

Well, why didn't you care? Because the heroines were barely involved?
My favorite character was always Kotarou and Terra is very much his route, so I found it incredibly engaging.
I dunno, I see the exact mentality you have from a lot of English-speaking players, but everyone I've talked to who played the game in Japanese says that Terra is more or less the best part. Maybe it's just the translation?

I would guess that maybe Tanaka's writing works miles better in the native language, or the Japanese players are better cultured towards the type of final route he delivered in Terra. I dunno, I liked how Cross Channel worked out, but I couldn't get into Terra. I can appreciate different types of stories and conclusions and I often value a lot of subtlety and tone shift routes and whatnot more than I value Key's traditional scenes and style, but Terra did not work for me at all. I'd definitely re-read it and give it another try when/if there's an anime announcement, but I just don't really get it. Maybe it was because I'm usually not too conscious of the protagonist I'm playing as, so I was never that interested in Kotarou.

It was shit. It would be more applicable if you watched some trailers/parts of the movie and knew what you were getting into, but still somehow expected the ending to be the same as the other films.

As for your second point, the actual content of the routes were a pretty good indicator that the ending wouldn't be what *you* expected.

As for the second part, no, they weren't at all. Every single ending was emotional except Chihaya's.

Not really, no. They're emotional, but not in the same way Key games typically are.
Terra's ending is emotional, but also not in the same way Key games typically are.

How? The route was amazing, it filled in so much space they had left remaining from the other routes. The only problem was the ending. Even if you ignore the lack of an "emotional climax" so to speak, the actual last scene was pretty retarded.

>>100220666
Key games typically make you cry a lot and then fix everything in the end in some ridiculously happy way so that you cry some more.
Much of Rewrite is very brutal, involving mass amounts of violence and death. There are no easy solutions to problems that just appear magically out of thin air, and what crying you'll be doing is pretty limited to one or two routes.
Kotori's route is probably the most typically "Key" out of all of them in that sense, I suppose.

I can certainly see what you're saying, however, Akane, Lucia, and Kotori all fit there. Hell even Chihaya had the "magic fix", only Shizuru and Terra really left things the way they were.

I'm arguing that the routes should tell you what to expect. I don't look at the endings alone when I try to see what the final routes have in store for me.
This is besides the original argument that you seem to think it 'failed' just because it wasn't what you expected.
>>
>>100220758
I'm not gonna say filler again because the anon of the other time is gonna get mad, but it was full of relatively uninteresting and too long scenes, the training scenes and overseas part are like 70% of the route.
I liked the scenes with kagari and kotori but there were only a few.
And when shit finally gets real, everything is rushed.
I guess I would've given more shit if I liked kotarou more like the other anon said.

Kotarou spends a good six months in the hospital after his girlfriend drags his broken ass six miles back to-- okay this one isn't so depressing.
None of these are "easy fixes", though. Chihaya's is, yes, which is why it has a continuation in Harvest Festa with essentially nothing changing and also why it is bad.

Obviously, the point of the scene was that Haruka is the reincarnation of the Emperor Nero - which justifies her use of art/music based accessories even though she's clearly unskilled with them. Her true soul is starting to slip though the cracks and push her further into madness under the strain of maintaining the dreamworld.

Also, that she wants Riki to force her down and ravish her.

Hi Kud
I would like you to remember that in Kudwafter, whenever Riki and Kud do the dirty, a certain darkness overwhelms their hearts and minds.

Kud remembers how she was chained in a cave, standing in a pool of her own filth, getting ravaged again, and again, and again. And she fears she may never experience it again.

Riki remembers that Kud’s first time wasn’t with him, but with several large, dark-skinned men and women. And he wonders if she’s really enjoying it.

But all they did was supplant the tyranny of the bees with their own and since then, they have probably cost the school millions in vandalism damages, to say nothing of the pit-fights they've started and the monsters they've unleashed upon the unsuspecting town.

Cumulatively, can we say the world was better off with the busters than with the bees?

The little busters were nothing but the greatest of heroes to that small back alley neighborhood, were you to as any who lived there they would recall the names of those five vigilant figures of justice who had protected them.


We were discussing the phones yesterday, going back over some of her saves tonight I'd completely forgotten there's a whole segment to getting her a small straight cellphone because flip phones where too big for her hands, and the phone even shows up in a CG later on.

>>100227424
Those bees had plans it wouldn't have ended there, the turf wars would have raged on and on, eventually engulfing the entire town than prefect then onto the cities. it would be a vicious unending cycle of destruction, horror, and undoubtedly evil. Those bees had what was coming to them.

Usually yes, but Little Busters he was given co-head with Na-ga. I'm unsure who was behind Rewrites art but hinoue is no longer the sole head (hasn't been since LB) Na-ga did do all the design for AB though. As i recall Rin, mio, Kud, Sasami, Saya are all na-ga's and Komari, Haruka, Kurugaya and futaki were all Hinoue. That's why there's such graphical difference between the girls (na-ga's being noticeably less key than the others). Na-ga is the sole head of AB art now though from what i've read.

She still made some great scenes in her time to be sure, na-ga was predominantly background art prior to LB. Personally i like Na-ga's designs a lot more but Honoue has her place in time still.

That scenes in the rain was really nicely done. All of her EX scenes though... Komari's also made me cringe going through it.

Yuiko gets one as well. Every time I see her get that 6-6 hit machine gun, I throw my hands into the air. The bullets tend to miss quite a bit for that weapon, fortunately.

She was counting the catch odin is Один in russian, or one. She speaks a lot of russian during the practice matches, makes sense that her native language is her go to language for fast reactions.

Yeah, I noticed most of what she says during batting practice isn't Nip, but I always think of Norse mythology when I think of Odin. Didn't know it was a word in Russian.

Agreed about the lunch scenario. Does that one only trigger if you choose her as Kud's roommate?

I love the balloons. Looks like the match is over, yet you've dropped 15 balloons on the ground. Opponent suddenly triggers them. Win the battle on that single turn.

My russian is pretty poor so i only know a few words and how to read Cyrillic letters, mostly out of interest to some of the lines she says.

Yeah I've had mio as a room mate and it never occurred.

My favorite was always 3dglasses vs. Strelka and Belka. kud doesn't fight just plays with them and they slowly lose how heartwarming the scene is that it downs them.

Don't know anything about Waffles story at this point other than Kud heading into space, supposedly, but I've seen this screen twice now with this chick yelling in Kud's face while she cries. Can't say that I like this girl at this point.

Pointing out that it is an assault should show you why this statement makes no sense. Needless to say, Rin will pay dearly in the end.
