So I just finished my first route (Makina) and what the fuck.
I somehow expected a good end but didn't get one.
In the bad end she becomes a crazy pregnant assassin who lets Yuuji's remains rot in her bakery and in the other ending she's not pregnant but becomes the new 9029 anyway (how can a little girl with less than 1 year experience become a special agent?) and will soon suffer from the same psychological trauma as Yuuji. Fuck, I started to really like her, is a peaceful life for her really too much to ask for?
What did you make me read, /a/? Now I'm almost afraid of trying the other routes. I wouldn't want Michiru going around shooting people.
Keep reading. The others endings aren't that bad.
Makina route is considered one of the best routes though.
The Makina endings kind of left the impression on me that every single ending would have the main girl become the new 9029.
This is pretty bullshit and in the case of some girls, like Michiru, also pretty unbelievable, but Makina becoming the new 9029 after less than a year of training is impossible as well, so who knows. I'm expecting the worst shit now.
I loved the route, don't get me wrong, but the retarded ending pissed me off. That one scene after the credits.
I like how the US government somehow sees a pregnant 16 year old with little to no combat experience as the best assassin out of people that have been trained for decades. Not only that, but she is unstable and mind broken to fuck.
And before you guys bring up "she memorizes everything", there is a difference between knowledge and conditioned muscle memory.
This is exactly what I mean. Fuck.
The entire thing with her becoming the new 9029 was shoehorned in at the end to make the reader feel bad, even though it doesn't make sense at all.
I hate the phrase, but this is literally "forced drama" in the purest form.
Her becoming 9029 is forced drama? But she loves it and it only makes her more badass; so there is nothing for anyone to feel sad about. Her ending just didn't make sense.
Makina's route is widely considered to be the weakest, just behind Yumiko's, for a good reason.
Even in her "good end" the last scene about her head not hurting yet implies that she'll get the same problems as yuuji and become a crazed murderer after some time. It made me genuinely feel bad for her, knowing that her peaceful bakery life is just an illusion.
And I don't even want to speak about the bad end, what the fuck was that.
That's not what I read about the routes.
Also I didn't think the route was bad, just the ending came out of nowhere and made zero sense.
She got mindbroken again when she saw yuuji died infront of her again and i believe she took his corpse with her...Explains the odd ass stares she got at least...
>That's not what I read about the routes.
Then you haven't been here long enough. Just about the only consistent thing in route rankings is that Makina's is last.
I know what happened. Also that blue bag in her store and why all customers always immediately left. In the bad end she becomes a psychopath who talks with Yuuji's corpse.
>It made me genuinely feel bad for her, knowing that her peaceful bakery life is just an illusion.
There is nothing to feel bad about. She just wanted to be a baker and she looked up to Yuuji as a role model. She got her bakery and she is now living up to what her role model is; at the same time having him as a lover and teacher. She is perfectly happy with how things ended up.
She is more badass in the next 2 games.
>liking Makina's route
It's easily the worst. Yuuji goes full-on "unstoppable Gary Stu" mode, and the endings are garbage.
Yumiko has around 80% Gary Stu mode, but the good end is at least passable.
>Yuuji vs 3
>gets his arm blown off and nearly dies
Hardly a Gary Stu.
Well its bloody clear why she's be last, Her Good End and Bad End are fucking cliffhangers
Yes, unfortunately Chirara can't do anything about it
Right at the end of the route where the plot armor dies down a little. Think about the rest of the fucking route.
Someone clearly hasn't read through the Grand Route in Mekyuu...Aka Yuuji's Past, He's hardly Stu
>Any route worse than Amane's
It only exists to show at the very end that Yuuji's sister is still alive so they can go revisit that in the third game. The rest of it is 8 hours of entirely predictable bullshit that takes way too long to conclude with weak characters you don't care about and then a shitty ending.
Sachi's is heartwarming at the end.
Anytime Sachi and Yuuji do anything together is pretty heartwarming. Just gotta get through the suffering.
>I hate the phrase, but this is literally "forced drama" in the purest form.
Welcome to Grisaia. The common route is great, all the girls' routes are shit.
haven't even finished my first route yet(sachi). Will i be disappointed?
Amane's route is excellent until OH NO THEY'RE EATING HER... AND NOW THEY'RE GOING TO EAT ME!
Then it becomes the worst in the game. But the level of suspense before you know how terrible the ending is puts it above Makina and Yumiko, both of which are bland garbage throughout.
This thread requires more best girl
No Sachi's route delivers
But there's no suspense because you know before the flashback exactly how it turns out.
There wouldn't have been any suspense in Lord of the Flies if it told you how it ended at the beginning.
Which is the best?
I just happen to have more of best girl.
Sachi > First 90% of Machiru >>> Amane > Last 10% of Michiru
Only ones I've done so far
Michiru's is the least shit.
Just don't read past the first credits roll.
Except you don't. You know Amane survived, but you don't know how. I was at least expecting her to eat some people to survive, but instead she just gets saved through bullshit luck.
Michiru a best
It was one of my least favorites, if not my least favorite.It made me drop Makina to second best girl status. It was still an alright route though
Not to mention she leaves best girl to die.
Michiru. Sachi is easily number 2, but her trauma was based around such a stupid thing that I couldn't really get into it as much.
All of Sachi's best lines are in other girls' routes
That was the other dumb part. She runs away while malnourished and in a panic and trying to avoid people and finds her way out within two days because she followed the stars. They could have all done that from the beginning and it was implied that Kazuki already knew that.
What are you guys talking about? There is nothing wrong with Makina!!
I wish I hadn't misplaced the Amane and Makina versions.
The dumb thing about it is that it dragged on forever. Ended up skipping through most of it, but got the general idea of what was happening
we all agree that amane's bad end makes her the best girl in the game, right?
It seemed to me that she just happened to make it out, leading a dozen whiny girls out without a lot of food would have been a total disaster.
no, I am in love with Sachi because of her route.
About to start on Yumiko.
Is her route disliked because it's just generic or is it actually just bad in general?
No, she's still a stupid slut. Michiru is the best, because she's a stupid maiden.
Kazuki > Michiru = Makina > Sachi > Yumiko > Amane
Get to my level. Also, SNIPER Makina is awesome.
This is literally the only VN I have dropped in my life. It was so tedious. The "comedy" was extremely unfunny. I found myself either skipping through the text or desperately wanting to. The characters were really flat, too.
It was like a shitty version of Sharin no Kuni.
Speaking of which, Koestl/one of the editors said they would post an update about Meikyuu *soon*, like 3 months ago.
In the sequel, Makina is shown using drugs to enhance her abilities
Too much action and less character development, You'll understand
It's okay but it has a really weak ending.
While I found it to be the least interesting of the routes I did read (Michiru/Amane/Yukiko) I also found it to be the most consistent in quality.
Amane is the worst girl.
It's fairly formulaic and doesn't even have a bad ending. It's not bad, but expect "Yumiko's fairytale wonderland" rather than a realistic story.
Nothing in Grisaia was as frustrating as Sachi's chapter in SnK.
You've got Persona on the brain, man.
its pretty generic compared to all the other routes and yumiko goes from seemingly competent to completely useless
though getting cutoff from internet pornography will do that i guess
I really liked michiru in her route,
However the route made me fucking pissed at yuuji.
He's just a fucking asshole who uses her and is the whole REASON for michiru feeling like shit all the time.
Then after she completely breaks, he feels like its time to be a "badass" and saves her in a completely absurd way.
Funny, I felt like SnK was a shitty version of Grisaia.
Shit, I keep doing that.
true yuuji was an asshole the whole time in that route and the way he fixed her just trivialized the whole amane everyone starved to death thing.
trapped in a coffin for 3 days with no food or water its all good time for bath sex
Is there any patch for this in english on the PSP?
I'm looking for a VN to get comfy in bed with.
I just wanted cute lighthearted Michiru romance. Instead she got eternally frustrated by Yuuji being even more dense than usual, a depressing second half and then Michiru ends up being tragic in every other route.
Did any anyone else find Grisaia to be pretty boring?
>The characters were really flat, too.
Only Makina. The rest of them at least had a modest chest size
Also the sex scenes were shit.
Going for the low hanging fruit as usual. I expected someone to say that when I wrote it originally, but you were the only idiot to actually go for it.
>hurr durr you made a joke on the internet, what an idiot
I enjoyed it.
It has its moments.
Proof that Makina's route is the best.
Some pictures from the Rakuen fanbook.
Spoiler tag these, most are EOP here.
This might take a while because retarded cooldown.
Yes, I know. Not posting those.
what anime is this
>there are people who didn't choose "Juicy Yuuji" as their nickname
When's the sequel going to be done being translated?
Also, how the hell does it continue on from the first one? The common route?
Wow, I almost thought I was on /jp/.
Why the fuck are you idiots posting this here.
My nigga from a white European mother.
A mix of all girl routes being canon. Somehow.
Translated eroge is supposed to be discussed on /vg/.
Why are there two different character artists? Why aren't all the character sprites drawn by the same person? Yumiko and Michiru's artist is better.
>In the sequel, Makina is shown using drugs to enhance her abilities
Oh mother fucker. She just gets shit on no matter what.
Or on /a/
No it's not, you dumb shit. Western-made VNs are.
Also, this has an incoming anime. It's the same reason those infernal Neptunia generals are constantly being posted here.
they retconn Mitcher's brain problems
he "resolved" or somewhat resolved all of their problems.
Meikyuu should be done this year, koestl, the translator has a twitter you can follow.
its a shame that Meikyuu and Rakuen is less romance and more Yuuji-Michael Bay action. From what I've seen and heard at least.
It seems almost too likely that Michiru would fall in and get raped by the dolphins.
Is that the cause behind the picture where she was sniping with her eyes red as fuck? I thought she just forgot her eye drops and forgot to blink(that happens).
I want to hug her so bad.
It's getting an anime (supposedly).
Wait, so what's her name is gone now? What the fuck? I'll admit her existence and the explanation didn't fit with the rest of the series but I really got to like her.
I still can't stand how bad the design for Yuuji is.
You know what, fuck it.
She's still there, they just retconned it to "regular" MPD, instead of an entirely different person.
You rike a fish?
Tch, I was hoping Michiru would eventually be OK with them sharing Yuuji...
And that's it. See you after my ban expires ;_;
I know, friend.
Its a shame that the artist for Sachi's CGs made things a bit strange.
In the sequel are there any yuri scenes between Amane and spoiler?
>slurping leech poison from her neck
That fact that he looks grumpy all the time?
We're having an awful lot of these threads lately. Guess it's gonna be super hyped on /a/ when the anime is finally announced.
I believe its extra CG.
Already in the works.
It's already super hyped. Shitposters came and went.
I know, but I mean like, when the date of it is announced.
I really hope they don't ruin Sachi.
Well personally, I believe Mitcher a best girl.
if I had to rank, only including the main female cast of the FIRST game, sachi'd probably be second.
they can be best together
Well there are two more games and the final ending is true harem end
And if you think that's bad, go play Amane's route. Jesus fucking christ wait til she explains her past.
that is disgusting
It's not like her past was the worst thing that ever happened. Just all her classmates died, she thought the person she was beginning to have yuri tendencies towards died, and she was accused of being a cannibal.
I mean, I can't wait til the second/third get translated, I really wanna see him fuck his sister
Please, you know we won't be able to enjoy these threads anymore.
Grisaia is so damn boring I couldn't make it past the common route. Worst SoL I have ever played
How is this the most boring one you've played? It actually keep me interested enough to not skip 95% of it. Something like If My Heart Had Wings though, I've been trying to play for like 2 months, skipping most of it and still haven't gotten close to getting past the third route.
I like how Sachi helps take care of Michiru.
Actually first route, mistyped.
grisaias long as fuck it took like 2 days of reading before any choice at all
Not like it has a lot of choices anyway.
I disagree with the guy you replied to, but the common route was pretty long...
Long or not, it's not like it just did bullshit for all of that. The common route had both funny stuff, and character development pretty much the whole way through.
Long or not, it was interesting.
their interactions are great
I'm right in the middle of Sachi's route as we speak, UG is hardcore. He blows up the fucking school then nails the bitch on the ruins, literally 0 fucks given.
I don't know what could have been going through his mind when he thought that idea up.
guess that's what happens when you're the edge master
Millie best Grisaia
Fuck you, that image is ruined
Is she a slut?
>I don't know what could have been going through his mind when he thought that idea up.
I'm pretty sure it was, "There's only one sane solution! BLOW IT ALL UP!!"
sorry. I love Sachi to death, but that was the first thing I noticed when that CG popped up.
here is a nonCG one that is less endearing, but still cute
More like retardedly edgy.
I found it amusing when I realised while playing the game that I'd already seen a few of the CGs in QUALITY threads.
So, can we all agree that Mitcher/Satcher have the best routes while Makina has the garbage route? Amane and Yumiko are in the middle.
Is the sky blue?
>Makina has the garbage route?
It was pretty decent up until killing her Mom didn't make the world a better place. The 'good' ending should have been the bad ending and we should have gotten an actual good ending.
It was a secret test of character. Kazuki wanted to see if they were good people, but everyone turned out to be a dick so she just left them there to rot. Amane was the only girl that she considered a 'friend' which was why she helped Amane. Kazuki's a dick like that.
last Sachi picture and I'm outta here
I want to impregnate Michiru and Amane. Just really dirty slutty sex with lots of ass slapping and hair pulling.
I wouldn't touch Amane with a barge pole. Swap her out with Satcher.
Amane's weird. She makes me want to absolutely violate and ravage her violently. But I also want to have nice romantic dinners and cuddle with her, go out for a drive in the car, maybe even take a walk through the forest with her.
What a polarizing person.
That's retarded because the only reason Amane didn't turn out like the others was because Kazuki latched on to her and didn't allow her to make her own decisions. If she had picked anyone else (who wasn't doomed from the start) it could've been them instead.
Not really. It's made clear multiple times throughout the route that Amane is a good natured girl, if a bit dumb and docile. Kazuki saw right away that Amane was a good person. Are you seriously telling me that someone as prideful as Chiaki or as selfish as the teacher would listen to Kazuki? No.
Chiaki was a bitch, sure, but what about Haruna, Saaya, Ritsu, Megumi, or Minori? Any one of them could have been trustworthy if Kazuki made the same effort to build up a relationship with them and also told them not to eat human beings.
