Best Key girl.
Kud is olev
I love you kud.
I love you.
Thats not best Key key.
Shiori a love
That's not Tomoyo
Darn it wafu, you got me by two seconds.
That's not ***.
time for Mio
It's a tight race every day, i'm trying so hard here ;_;
Pretty shitty picture we have here. Is this from the game CG, perhaps? Talk about a let down.
I like your taste anon.
Its alright wafu. You do good. Kud knows how hard you try every day.
i'll keep at it for her, i think i'm going to take a sleep now very tired.
Fuck. I'm in love.
See you in a few hours. Anyone still torrenting from the last thread?
That's not Haruchin
As someone who only casually enjoys VNs, if I'm going to invest days of my life into a Key game what should it be
I can bully you tonight in bed Shizuru come to my room later baby and let's fug pls.
Currently 887 mb out of 23.5 gb on the Key file. You?
damn right it's not Tomoyo.
Well what VN's do you like?
You can start with either Clannad, LB, or Rewrite, those are the three most popular Key works, at least from these threads.
Read the synopsis for each and pick up the one that interests you the most.
From the "Key" torrent I am at 918 MB, but my download speed is currently very very low.
Best Key Period
Key Husbandos > Key Waifus
For somebody that has only read Little Busters and watched Clannad, is rewrite any tearjerking like any of these two?
>She will never wait on the Moon for your return
Clannad. I would tell you to pick up either LB or Rewrite next but by the time you would get done with Clannad, Angel Beats will be out (depending on how much time you put into Clannad) and I can not begin to describe how much I'm looking forward to it.
Thats not muscles
DL speed is currently 86.3-98.5kB/s. Slow but its alright.
Read Moon and One first. That'll put you above the people in this thread just from reading those two.
Next move onto Kanon. By then the Air translation should be done, so read that. Then Clannad. Then Little Busters. Then Rewrite. Then Planetarian. Then Angel Beats.
Lets throw this out there now.
>you will never be the number one body guard and most trusted advisor of Gaia's young holy woman
>you will never be her lover and equal
>you will never work with her to rid our great mother of the scourge that is humanity
>you will never embrace in your final moments as the Key sings, comforted in each other's arms celebrating your success in the instant of emotional and physical climax as your bodies break apart and return to the earth
>there are people on /a/ right now that don't want to give humanity a painless and noble end to all the strife and suffering we've caused and inflicted upon ourselves over the years
>there are people on /a/ right now who don't want to save the world and its inhabitants by allowing humanity to slip into peaceful, eternal slumber
Living is painful and you're waifu awaits you beyond the Key's song. The choice is clear. This is the only future we have.
Are those actually good?
Why would you post her?
Mine is at <30kbs at the moment.
favorite girl even if she doesn't have a route
This was beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I'm really glad I'm re-reading Little Busters. I'm really starting to come around to Midori. She's brilliant. Maybe even better than Mio
Damn you moot
mine just went to around 50kb. Probably gonna finish around wednesday at the earliest.
Moot fucking with /a/ or did you post the ponies
>Read Moon and One first
Anon, what are you doing?
Favorite robot girl
I would never post ponies. This is the only animal thing I have in this folder.
I just want to sniff her farts, watch her pee, eat her poo and rub her menstrual blood all over my face because she's so adorable.
Its like you're not even trying.
Would you eat her sweets?
Is this a metaphor? I would either way.
That's not Asuho.
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.
I'm about to read this. What should I expect?
Is angel beats here yet?
That's not cockroach
Good comedy, decent characters, mediocre plot, god-tier music.
Oh, and god-tier art too. But that you can see it.
Well, I said I would read ONE.
I read Nagamori, Misaki, and Akane's route in that order. I liked Misaki's the most, but the routes have gotten pretty repetitive (like, pulling the same twist every time), so I'm leaving it at those 3 and calling it finished unless someone convinces me there are other routes worth playing.
And the OVAs are terrible. The H OVAs are semi-decent, but I wanted to get some emotion I got from them and all I got was PLOT. They sorta cut out the nakige parts of the nakige.
Inoue route when?
Cute characters, good music, cliche personalities, great visuals. Plot isn't too serious, but its not a joke.
When you make one Inoue-bro ;_;
Image swapping bug. If two people on different boards post at the same time, it swaps the images. Seen some pretty hilarious swaps on /tg/
What is a Key girl? Please elaborate
That is what he meant by "moot fucking with /a/"
And of all things it had to swap my image with ponies.
A girl from a product made by Key.
This is a true Key girl
Remember a while back i tride posting Mio. Got liquidation.
> Key bought by Hasbro
I remember that. Mio got liquidated. It was quite depressing. I'm glad she is alright.
What does Hasbro have to do with this?
what is this?
the recovery was a success
I think anon is implying key got bought by hasbro, which owns mlp...
Which means >>100586696
The swap was Hasbro marketing.
I just arrived at Sasami H scene. here we go.jpg
I am new to this kind of shit, I'm mostly a /tg/ nerd. Could anyone point me to any Key products that would be a good start?
Also, would JP be a place to post a thread to discuss themes of Visual Novels? Not sure because it wouldn't necessarily be JP or Western.
I just want to tease her, hug her, rub her perfect thighs, and cuddle with her because she's so adorable.
After the Touka route.
Time for sleep now.
Good night, Sleep well.
Why choose one girl when you can have two?
I have enough love for several, but it's all reserved for the one that I truly love.
This is too lewd.
I had to do a double take on this one. Nicely played.
Are you korean?
>I'm Inoue of the newspaper club
>nice to meet you.
Kyou best Key girl
Clannad best Key product
Rewrite best Key OST
Angel Beats best Key art style.
Kotori a best.
it was mainly just you picking the wrong file.
We Muv Luv now?
9000 hours in paint
Best Key girl.
I post Midori.jpg pretty frequently, though.
ive noticed. You're not the only one to try and pose as VN Mio though. Has the strawpoll changed any yet?
Bakabakas everywhere today.
Good characters, great art, god tier OST. Not the best plot in the world though, but the character interactions are great.
>Rewrite best Key OST
>not even air
I like it.
Just finished Sasami route. Might post spoilers at some point. Good route, really liked it.
T-two Rins? Sasami would be freaking out right now.
Oh, I wasn't you imposter. I am strawpoll guy, though. I do pretty much all of those.
based midori is up by one
This is an old one against non-based Midori. Mio won by a landslide.
Here is a bonus for you
Who's there to complain with more Rin. More Rin is always a bonus.
First Beat confirmed GOTY 2014?
What is everyone talking about? I always fall asleep before reading through these threads properly.
No, that's WTC 5
Is it this?
I'm low on HDD space, but legit tempted to get it anyway.
That is one of them. Here is the other for all of those who might be interested.
Just finished Rewrite. What's Harvest Festa like?
so i just finished moon and terra. what the fuck is up with the endings? i'm half confused and half disappointed. i mean, it was good, but really what the fuck just happened?
seriously i tried googling for an explanation but i seem to be the dumbest person in the world cause apparently everyone else knows what's going on.
That's some timing right there.
If you want to ask some specific questions, people will answer as best they can. Giving some broad synopsis of the entire route probably won't help you much.
How does killing Kagari save the Earth? Won't it just end up like before in the other routes?
It doesn't. It saves the earth from destruction at that very moment. Unlike the other routes, Kotarou has discovered what it will take to save humanity, and that is travel to another planet. The Earth is doomed no matter what.
In Moon, Moon Kagari finally discovers a route to create "good memories" and sends that data to Earth Kagari. However, Sakura figures this out and tries to kill Kagari. Kotarou summons everyone he knows who could help because the Moon is the nexus for all of the potential routes that could save humanity.
In Terra, Kotarou has to kill Kagari because he has to stop the Earth from wiping humanity, but he doesn't realize it until the last second when Kagari tells him. Eventually, he becomes a familiar summoned by the heroins who's role is to lead humanity to other planets to ensure their survival because the Earth isn't going to live much longer.
This is my basic understanding of it. Hope it helps.
how did kotarou end up in the moon/wherever the fuck he ended up in the moon route?
how did he summon his friends and why do they act like nothing's happening?
what even happened at the end of moon?
am i wrong to think that terra happened because he did not turn into a familiar and fall into a coma?
that's why he's 10 years older than everyone else?
why can earth kagari talk normally but moon kagari can't?
why did earth kagari have to die at the end? what even happened to turn them into a tree? why did kotori and akane not recognize kotarou when he came back as a familiar?
why did he not remember them?
how could they go to the moon?
why can the moon support life now?
and most importantly, what the fuck was the happy memory that apparently saved the planet?
Check the codex, it was useful for me.
My memory is a bit foggy, but I'll answer as best I can.
>how did kotarou end up in the moon/wherever the fuck he ended up in the moon route?
The remaining Aurora that was left on the earth moved to the moon at the end of the the 5 main routes. It was a last ditch effort to come up with a plan to save the Earth.
>how did he summon his
friends and why do they act like nothing's happening?
Not sure if it ever gives a technical explanation for everything, but my understanding is that Kotarou creates his friends on the moon using that same Aurora. He's able to recreate them and give them the knowledge and information from the time they've spent together, so nothing is a shock to them at that point.
>what even happened at the end of moon?
Battle royal with Sakura's familiars. It gives Kagari enough time to set everything back in motion to save the Earth. The Aurora then heads back to the Earth.
>am i wrong to think that terra happened because he did not turn into a familiar and fall into a coma?
That's exactly why it happened. That is the point where Terra branches off from the girl's routes.
>that's why he's 10 years older than everyone else?
He's 10 years older than everyone else in every route. The difference is that in the girl's routes, he doesn't age while in a coma, so they don't notice.
>why can earth kagari talk normally but moon kagari can't?
Earth Kagari mentions that she has traveled the Earth studying humans. Moon Kagari can't do that obviously.
Comment is too long. Will have to finish in next comment.
>why did earth kagari have to die at the end?
To stop salvation from happening again, such as in Shizuru's route.
>what even happened to turn them into a tree?
Running theme in the novel. Why Kotarou and Sakuya turn into trees as opposed to something else, I don't know. The reason they do so is that they can continue living in situation where staying human wouldn't work.
>why did kotori and akane not recognize kotarou when he came back as a familiar?
This one is hard to say. Some of there comments make it seem like they may actually recognize him, but they obviously aren't overt about it if they do. They were still children in Terra, so perhaps they did actually forget what he looked like, or their memories faded. Hard to say.
>why did he not remember them?
He probably did. No reason for him to mention that he knows them to either of them.
>how could they go to the moon?
Kotarou has that power as a familar, now. It's never really explained though, I believe.
>why can the moon support life now?
Life exists because of Aurora. That's why there was some life on the moon during the route, if that is what you are referring to?
>and most importantly, what the fuck was the happy memory that apparently saved the planet?
Kagari never adequetly explains what happy memories really are to Kotarou, and he constantly misunderstands her, but basically the Earth wants to see humans progressing towards moving off the planet because the Earth's life is finite. That's why the Earth via Kagari constantly resets everything in the hope that they will live long enough to save themselves.
Hope this helps a bit. If I'm wrong on any of these, hopefully someone will correct me for you.
yeap, all my questions are answered now. thanks.
Glad to be of service.
Sorry I had to put midori in the lead.
Don't know if you at all care, but a better quality of this image without the watermark does exist.
Man just forget that nonsense and do the true ending, the Oppai ending.
That anon has been posting that version of mio and Haruka for quite a while. I'd almost be sad if he upgraded.
I've been looking for that version for a while now, thanks.
I'll keep the watermarked version just for you anon.
Truly best key girl.
You best be talking about moon.
Terra smiled at Kotori. I won't have that cunt smile at helplessness in front of me.
I'm talking about both.
Origami is best girl in every universe.
She still smiled, which is inexcusable.
Fuck, Marry, Kill, Befriend, Ignore.
I-its not that I c-care that much anon. Do as you please.
As we see in Terra, Earth Kagari is essentially the same as moon Kargari. The closer we get to salvation in the girl's routes, the more her personality is warped. Something to keep in mind.
Oppai Kagari best Kagari.
I'm not sure how I'm supposed to befriend Shizuru while ignoring Lucia mind you.
I can't do any of the last 2.
The lack of Little Busters translated Doujins still confuses me to this day.
>Kagari will never increase her bust size for you
Preferring Midori is preferring sluts and rapists.
Haruka says the same stupid thing at the end of her route.
It's almost as if the LB girls are ignoring the real world or something
They're just optimistic and would rather not spend their lives spiting and hating people because it will only turn them into what has upset themselves.
Best key girl
But her sister is better.
>current turrent progress 29.3% at 6.92 gb
out of the way fags
Brings up a good question. Best aunt/mother in Key?
Leaning towards Haruko
my vote goes to haruko or Sanae
>43.8% 13.8gb downloaded, 14.2gb uploaded, the single album i have prioritized still isn't done ;___;
Kind of hard to compare honestly. Sanae and Haruko both lose something thats important to them. Akiko doesn't necessarily but does almost die. Sanae and Akiko are the best mothers from the beginning while Haruko for the most part just kind of ignored misuzu for the majority of her life until the end. She did deal with Misuzus condition pretty well, if not only so much.
Dammit im leaning towards Sanae now.
im only torrenting tge Key folder right now, going for ksl. Sucks that it hasn't downloaded yet.
I'm probably more inclined to sanae than haruko, sanae not only sacrifices her dreams to be responsible, she sacrifices her time to spend grieving her only child passing to raise her grandaughter, sanae has been through as much hardship as most of the main key girls really. and ontop of all that she doesn't let it break her and holds strong for nagisa's sake.
Damn thinking about the moment after she's told it's her turn to grieve tears me up
This is one long haul torrent, it will be worth it... I'm going to be listening to this collection for months to be sure.
So, what is in this second torrent, anyway?
It was a live concert that key holds for special events. I had the KSL for kudwafter, but i never got the KSL for the 10th anniversary so I'm glad someone bought it up last night.
That might be interesting. Kind of want to see that now. The speed has been pretty low on that one. I'm only at 15%.
I really enjoyed the kud wafter one, i really wish i could travel out to see one but the cost is abit much to just see one concert and nothing else is really happening at the same time so i can never justify it. i'm on 4% here.
Its even again.
I woke up because I sensed something. I'm glad I did.
Really? I've raise my upload speed to around 250kB/s
I'm only managing 40-100kbps right now. the music comp is on 45% and the KSL at 4.1%. And my internet is truly awful even if it's about the best you can get in my country ;_;
I just looked at the information for my Key torrent. I've only successfully downloaded 36.8 percent but that is because 11.6 GB have been wasted. Over half of what I have downloaded is junk, or at least corrupt or something.
Everything that has gone to 100% is working for me so far, any specific files at 100% that you can mention for me to see if it's the same here or not?
I'm good with the first Key torrent. Listening to some of the classical renditions on that first download right now. Pretty good.
What I am saying is slightly different. In the transmission process somewhere along the line some of the data is getting corrupt, bittorrent protocol detects this and then downloads it again until you get the right file. When something goes to 100% for me it works too. But I've downloaded 20.7GB total.and 11.9 GB were corrupt and so wasted. That is unusually high. I don't understand why it is happening.
Inoue is cute and popular and even gets cosplayers.
She'll definitely get a route some day
I really hope she does. Just for you.
Fuck & befriend Akane, Marry Lucia, Kill Kotori, Ignore Chihaya.
I'm gonna find you m8
After Touka route.
Fuck Shizuru after marrage
Kill Sakura Kashima
She really is popular! She even got 11th on the poll! That's only one spot away from having her picture on the wall
I will get it eventually, I've just gotta keep believing
As I said before you should petition for it or something.
Did Inoue get any focal content in Festa or is she just sort of there making lewd faces and taking pictures of stuff?
Ah my bad, misunder stood there.
Keep at tit and you can achieve i'm sure!
We can believe, we can all believe. I want both. ;_;
Maybe if we send them a starfish that says we want it they will give it to us.
We can all sign it with personalized messages
They know they want to give it to us.
Even if they don't know they want to do it now, they will want to want to do it.
We've got plenty to spare, all painted golden too!
How would one say route in Japanese?
Although it might be more appropriate for me to send them something sanma like.
Not like a road route though, a VN route
terra is full of these choice segments that really only allow you one choice. i also notice the flames around the choice, what are these supposed to symbolize? some holy spirit guiding kotarou?
I think it symbolizes the one true route that Kotarou has to take in order for humanity to keep living on. Remember that the whole point of Moon was to figure out and then cause that specific route to happen.
I'm pretty sure it is just this.
I prefer sluts and rapist anyways.
Moonreader here, correct.
I lack any fish pictures surprisingly...
im just ignoring KSL right now. Itspaused next to Key folder at 34.2%, 16-90kb/s
Why don't you have any pictures with fish?
I'm averaging about 410kB/s download and 140kB/s upload. But I've had over half of what I've downloaded be useless due to hashfails. Something weird is happening in there somewhere.
>I'm averaging about 410kB/s download and 140kB/s upload. But I've had over half of what I've downloaded be useless due to hashfails. Something weird is happening in there somewhere.
Looks like that virus I put in there is working like a charm. 100 mil target accounts weren't enough for me.
It really doesn't help my searches that mio's name is 美(beautiful)魚(fish). Closest i seem to have is this good enough?
I've got around 1.8mbps bandwidth usually and neither is going about 100kbps so i'm just letting them both run.
Heh that is fine.
Ive got norton, nothing gets past norton...
Why don't you come a little closer. Don't pay attention to what I might have behind my back.
Let me call my friends
Uh, about that...
Norton is easily the best anti-virus software, you'll be fine
Ah yes I was looking for the Lucia thread
must be nice having friends
Who needs friends when you've got visual novels?
Oh anon don't take it like that. And you have us right?
Figures are all the friends you need.
Because friends in visual novels tend to keep dying one way or another.
Just play it again.
N-not with my key magic! ;_;
But with key magic everything gets better right?
>Figures are all the friends you need.
This made me laugh for some reason, yet it shouldn't have.
Just fiished Rewrite yesterday. Why do I feel so empty, /a/? I still have the Oppai ending left but still, it feels like I lost a dear friend or something. Also, I still don't understand some plot points:
Do the first 5 routes actually happen on the Moon, after the Earth transfers its energy so it can have a last chance of re-evolution? That would explain why in Kotori's route no matter how far she and Kotarou tried to escape from Kazamatsuri they wouldn't make any progress (always arriving at the same shack where they hid the first time).
Why didn't Kotori and Akane recognize Pochi at the end if he was just Kotarou revived as a familiar? Kotori mentioned something felt familiar, but that's it.
Shipping is taking forever though...
An old friend actually got me into visual novels. Started with True Remembrance.
Youre right. All I need I you guys, my waifu, and muscles
I think my first one was True love, although I suppose that might count as more of an eroge. That was before I even watched anime or anything like that too.
What is your Key girl's favorite face?
Mine is :3
Or whatever face Lucia makes when she's angry.
This every day.
I did too then then i realised i want joking
Post-VN depression is a harsh reality. You've got to strive on though.
my first was wanko to kurasouheh..
keybros for life.
Mine has to be the little conceited half turned away blushing smile i post every day every time she pulled it in game it would bring me into my own stupid smile.
wafu >_< ! comes second.
My first was fate/stay night followed by Saya no Uta I believe. Two of the standard entry level VN's. They are both still good though
Nevermind, I'm retarded. I just remembered in Lucia's route they travel all around the world in the end.
>wafu >_< ! comes second.
I complete agree and you have great taste.
Fill the emptiness with another VN
Then when that one is over fill it up with yet another.
Keep on with this chain of depression and escapism while you learn Nipponese so you can eventually stop being restricted by translations
There's something extremely endearing with that sprite. Not even a shizurufag
Her embarrassed face is ridiculously cute.
yeah learn fast or you'll run out really.
It's like she's ''shit I'm embarrassed but I'm not sure if I should be or not''.
The fun thing about her is that she has that same attitude on pretty much everything when she acts normally.
Now that's an easy question.
But then you end up in /jp/.
I believe they've licensed and release a north American version of Saya, no word of Fate though.
Havent heard of true love in a while now.
dont believe ive heard of it but from a quick search it has a lot of loli in a box. Might be off though.
Post VN depressing is a serious condition. The worst I ever got it was after my first really long VN, MLA. I was a bit depressed for weeks.
That is why she is my favorite.
Smug is always amazing.
>But then you end up in /jp/.
Oh god, anything but that.
Find me and get along?
That's exactly what I did when I started VNs, no I don't really have withdrawal syndroms anymore.
That fucking tambourine is great.
MLA op is fucking god tier
Rin it's cute but Uguu it's better
I still need to read Muv-Luv but I don't want to get PTSD afterwards.
It's an eroge, decent story was a fun ride.
kuds route puts me out of power for upwards of a week.
oh god no i don't want to go back.
Ugly, boring, generic girls.
Get better waifus, you obese faggots
/jp/ is better than /a/
>look at my girl who suffered by doing shit, looks badass by doing nothing and flipping her hair
>isn't she DEEP
Only good thing about homura is her VA
Damn kids today, all spoiled with their easy linear Eroge.
Not really. /jp/ is just a more boring version of /a/. Never any good threads, always 2hu and nothing else. It's where the pseudo-intellectuals and the even more elitist go to prove how underground and cool they are. Basically, it's just /a/ for hipsters.
Youre going to get it anyways. Getting rid of it wasnt too bad. I just started working out with the Op every other song and it left after about a month
Homu > every girl in this thread
You're pretty funny sometimes /a/non.
Yeah yeah. Go back to madoka generals please.
You people should all kill yourselves for having this much shit taste
Good example of something being so good it overshadows the others. Not to say the other voice actors were bad though.
Sure, whatever helps you sleep at night.
Now go back to Madoka threads, you're stale bait won't work here. We only bite for fresh key bait
>2hu is bad.
>not being a Kyokofag
People exaggerate the impact of MLA. I doubt you'll get any PTSD if it's not one of your first VNs, MLA is pretty predictable.
Except Marimo, but after that nothing really surprised me.
It went all downhill from there.
That... doesn't sound good.
The only reason I haven't read it is because there are apparently a lot of nods to mecha anime and my knowledge of mecha isn't that good.
At best, I've only watch mazinger z, ttgl and escaflowne.
/jp/ is like 50% 2hu though anon.
It's not necessarily that 2hu is bad, but why does it need half the board? It's like kudzu.
The one from MLA. Also threw in a bit of untz, touhou, and JAM project.
My taste were odd at one point.
I went into it unspoilered and I thought it was pretty dramatic.
Same. It hurt me.
Also, spoilers faggot.
That's actually pretty much what I listen to, just throw in some moe/uguu shit and we're the same.
That's not even cute. Jesus Christ it looks terrible
To this day I'm still not sure how Kyousuke is holding that bat.
Noone uses spoilers
Why are homubros so insecure they need to insult other waifus?
Never attack another person's waifu.
I was spoiled about almost everything unfortunately, I wasn't really shocked about this or Sumika's scene, but I still liked that VN a lot. I couldn't stop reading.
I doubt I would have liked it more if I was unspoiled.
It's not a bat
Between his legs? or his dick?
Sumikas scene took me by complete surprise too
It still felt fucking stupid and forced.
I wish faggots on /a/ would use spoilers for spoilers instead of surprise boxes and bad puns
Looks like he's holding it between his knees.
Have fun with the devil
Maybe you should _________________
That looks like it hurts
I'm sure I would have enjoyed the VN regardless of spoilers, but going in unspoilered felt magical.
But yeah the two scenes you just listed were probably the most shocking, being spoilered would probably dilute the impact of the scenes quite a bit. During Marimo's scene my body wouldn't trembling and during s00mika's i felt sick to my stomach, I felt sad for her but at the same time I hated her guts. It was a feeling so complicated.
More like it was the only sex scene that wasn't stupid and forced.
Because they're entry level band wagoners who only like her after the movie.
Key magic, don't ask questions. The bat is held by friendship and a jc staff budget .
You'd read them anyway stop lying.
This thread is still up?
I went into MLA not even knowing it was going to be PTSD inducing. By the end not even seeing Tama ripped in half made me feel anything.
>You'd read them anyway stop lying.
That's not the fucking point
Welcome to the planetarium.
Best underrated key game
I still need to finish this vn.
I can't bring myself to pass the point where she shows me around.
I just know something terrible is going to happen to her. Even if the VN is short.
You could see the ending coming from as soon as she said them words, but damn it still got me good
>By the end not even
That wasn't how it was for me. It made me feel sick and nauseous.
But how the fuck did Tama's corpse get there before Takeru did? He was far ahead of her.
>The bat is held by friendship
Thank you for the laugh.
>ever hating Sumika
>not staying true to her throughout MLA and Unlimited
It's 4 hours long, it's worth it especially for that short amount of time
It's key, what do you expect?
Just read it.
Don't fight it, you know you love crying.
I do not know and will let the MLA fans explain that. Kasumi best MLA.
I cried too hard with LB.
I don't want that again.
I was waiting for her for the entirety of Unlimited
Then for the first half of Alternative
Then when she appeared she wasn't even herself, that was a little irritating.
I didn't want to hate Sumika, but after seeing how she was acting there I couldn't help but hate her a little, though most of my emotion during the scene was disgust and pity.
Besides, almost every girl was better than fucking s00mika, all the valkyries, kasumi, Meiya, tsukubromi, etc.
I-it didn't have to end this way... ;___________________________;
The ending to Planaterium is rough. The light novels kind of bring it to a happy conclusion, though, if you seek greater closer.
Why not? It's a fucking glorious catharsis. Don't even try to tell me you don't like it.
I want to run salami over with a car, then afterwards I would skin her face off and wear it over my own as a mask signifying my conquest over her cold, festering corpse.
>Besides, almost every girl was better than fucking s00mika, all the valkyries, kasumi, Meiya, tsukubromi, etc.
Then you can have them, but I want nobody else.
Sumika will always be the best girl to me, and she's the only one who will ever truly win.
I'll read it tonight and post in the next thread about it as confirmation.
I just don't want to cry.
What's so good about her anyways?
o_o is nice too. This thread's been going on longer than normal.
STOP SAYING THAT FAGGOT
YOU FUCKING LOVE CRYING OR ELSE YOU WOULDN'T BE HERE
You can't act like you didn't feel something where Takeru goes back to extra verse and she is there, slowly forgetting about him but doing everything she can to try and remember.
Tachiagare kedakaku mae sadame wo uketa senshi yo
Everything, there's no specific part I liked about her more than any other part of her, but there wasn't anything I disliked.
I liked everything about her.
It's the year of the VN we're going on the rise. Might end up with two threads if it keeps up.
>I just don't want to cry.
Probably no avoiding it.
Man I wish I was underage and had cancer so I could go to that Make a Wish Foundation and demand Key makes a H-Version of Rewrite that has Touka and Inoue routes
I actually fast forwarded through the entire diary-reading segment. That's how much I dislike s00mika. I can't really feel much for someone who'd be willing to do something so silly for someone so spineless. It was inevitable that she would lose her memories, she should have told takeru about it while she still could. That would have won me over more than what she actually did. The part where she calls you Shirogane-san was pretty spooky though.
Not him, but I fucking love childhood friends
They're often automatic best girls, except in case of extreme tsundereshitness
I'm taking some credit because I keep acidentally getting everyone on the thread to talk about something random, like MLA today for example. I don't mean to I swear
Don't do it anon keymagic will bring us the sequel!
>I just don't want to cry.
People don't like crying when they read VNs?
Emotional impact is one of the biggest reasons I play them, so I can feel something in my life other than nothingness
No crime in having an active discussion. it's better than what half the other threads on this board are doing right now.
The keymagic is what will give him cancer ;_;
To be honest, key games wouldn't be very interesting if not for the glorious maedrama
Crying, for me, is one of the worst feelings.
I love being emotional involved with a medium but something that gets me to cry hurts too much.
That whole Baseball scene in LB just destroyed me like no other.
We're pretty cool about digressions like that though, that's how these threads have always been
That was easily my show of the season, and Sakura was easily my favorite girl.
I also love childhood friends
There's no reason to feel like that, it's fiction.
Also LB is even a healing game so there's no reason to be depressed.
Pretty much nailed it, for me, a long relationship is needed to take romance seriously, otherwise it's just sexual urges.
I've also gotten the thread into the Gaia vs Guardian wars a few times. They do make for fun threads though.
This is completely wrong.
Childhood friends are never meant to win because they are, by intent and definition, only friends.
They can't be something more because they never saw each other as something more.
And if they did, something would have happened years prior.
They might be the best girl, but nipland fully knows that a childhood friend must never ever win. It's the reason why childhood friends usually never actually win.
>Gaia vs Guardian wars
That's completely relevant though.
Guardian is better.
Context? I don't remember it.
That's bullshit, because first, there can't be pure friendship between men and women and second because nothing ever happened because they were kids.
It's completely right.
Being friends by no means bars two people from taking their relationship to a higher level.
They might not see eachother as something more, but that doesn't mean it can't change.
Just because nothing has happened between them before doesn't mean it can't happen in the future.
Kotori is lewd.
If they ever make an anime this needs to be in there
Re-reading the novel really makes you realize just how badly Kotori was doing
I don't think I'll be madder than when the inevitable non-white fox non-kyonai anime is announced.
>there can't be pure friendship between men and women
Sure there can. It's the reason why they go so well together. Becoming something more would destroy that union when they were kids for something alien.
I agree but it's mainly that reason why neither ever see each other as something more.
She should have just sold her parents.
Guardian is definitely better.
Gaia is full of suicidal hippies.
So you're basically saying childhood friends can't be love interests for the same reason as incest, westermarck effect or something like that? I think that's stupid.
Also a bunch of osananajimi were separated at their childhood and reunite later in anime/vn so it doesn't apply.
Poor kotori. I need to reread Rewrite. So much forshadowing and hints that I didn't get.
i like it gives me something to talk in, the usual VN threads just die so i rarley get to talk about them and the /jp/ /vg/ ones are just meh.
He done started it now.
Both of those studios are bad why would you want them. They both did adaptions tat don't compare to their most famous VN adaptions. VNs really just can't be adapted to the level of the VN itself ever so get ready for P.A.Works 12 episode rewrite.
>Both of those studios are bad why would you want them. They both did adaptions tat don't compare to their most famous VN adaptions.
Are you high?
Wafu I just knew you would be a guardian guy. Its because you have the best of tastes.
>So you're basically saying childhood friends can't be love interests for the same reason as incest
Actually, yeah, that's exactly the reason.
That's fucking stupid.
That's how it is. Stupid or otherwise.
No it's not.
There are plenty of couples out there who were childhood friends.
Are you? Kyoani does nice animation but changes so much in all their adaptations. Go read the chu2 LN and compare it to the anime, they cut out routes in clannad. Also they'll probably sameface all the rewrite girls into k-on face, i don't personally like it.
But ofcourse my favorite girl is guradian i couldn't fight against her.
> they cut out routes in clannad.
That's not unreasonable given how fucking huge the game is.
Full version of that picture, might I ask?
>Are you? Kyoani does nice animation but changes so much in all their adaptations.
Cut out maybe, but the few things they changed in key adaptations were improvements (example : yukine route).
>lso they'll probably sameface all the rewrite girls into k-on face
It's okay, Hinoue already took care of that.
Lastly, you may have your complaints on kyoani, but frankly no other studio would be better.
Otherwise name it, because I need a good laugh.
woops i needed the image.
Point was regardless of the studio it's never going to be as good. And seriously maybe the kyoani for pre-k-on i could see doing it, but post k-on kyoani can stay the hell away from it.
>the few things they changed in key adaptations were improvements
Unlike Kotomi's route or the OVAs for Tomoyo/Kyou.
Or Air in general.
>Unlike Kotomi's route or the OVAs for Tomoyo/Kyou.
What did they change in those?
>Or Air in general.
Here too? They cut a lot of stuff but I don't remember any change to the plot.
Kyoani is a studio that generally puts out above average work compared to the rest of the industry. It doesn't mean that it is great all the time, but htey usually don't bomb. They end up changing stuff from the source material but usually I can see why. Clannad is huge and unless they wanted it to go 100 episodes they needed to cut some routes and change a few things. In their most recent shows they have adapted , Chuu2 and Kyoukai no Kanata, they changed a great deal of stuff but from the summaries I read of the source material it seemed like those were improvements, at least I didn't mind them. VN's in general are really hard to adapt and usually are not done well. With Kyoani some things might be changed, but overall it would probably come out to be at least a decent show. There are other studios that would be better but if I had the choice to get a Kyoani Rewrite or a random studio does it I would pick Kyoani any day.
What VNs are you playing through right now?
>Kyoani is a studio that generally puts out above average work compared to the rest of the industry. It doesn't mean that it is great all the time
What's the point of judging them without comparing to other studios then? Of course I was on the basis of the best adaptation we could have.
It's true that Kyoani is getting worse atm but I mainly blame the shitty sources. I doubt Knk and free are less shitty in their original work.
>There are other studios that would be better
Please do tell, because I don't see them.
Ikikoi, the comedy was lewd and fun but the routes are pretty bad.
best girl RIP
fucked up the first quote >>100613262
Same, I'm finding the SoL pretty bland apart from the lewd situations and jokes. I also dislike how big a cunt Ryou and, to a lesser extent, Eika are
All of you read translations? Are there any translations you are particularly excited for?
Kanon, these threads gave me the desire to do what I've been intending to do for a long time, read the VN of Kanon, Air, Clannad, and Moon.
Also Tomoyo After after all that if I can get it to work, it seems to hate my computer for whatever reason.
HF, of course
Well the MC is a typical ball-less fag that gets abused and is as dense as the sun, even worse than usual.
I'm playing Grisaia no Kajitsu very slowly, and I'm about to play Planetarium tonight.
I would give UFO table a shot at Rewrite. They have done well with their adaptations thus far and the action scenes would be right up their ally.
Here it is, had to resize to fit it on 4chan but i'm sure you can reverse search the full ver.
> Hinoue already took care of that.
hinoue face > k-on face.
Pretty much what i'm saying is it won't match the VN they're not god awful Jc bad, but they won't adapt it to be the masterpiece the VN was for you.
> blame the shitty sources.
It's not really the sources, they are cherry picking series with airhead autistic girls to milk the moe money off of.
I would be inclined to say ufotable for rewrite, they're really good at action and the writers showed them selves capable. Still doesn't match the VN at all. And ask anyone who played S;G first the pacing in the anime is godawful from whitefox, most non-VN readers should have noticed that even.
I'm somewhat inclined to say shaft but that's probably around the same level i'd say i'd let kyoani do it.
Currently playing grisaia and then a fate/sn repaly before the anime comes out.
I read moon teh heh
It was fun to corrupt the ojousama
SubaHibi no doubt. I'll never care to read another translation afterwords.
Little busters EX by doki.
I didn't particularly care for her when I started, but I came to like her more and more as the game progressed.
I've read translations up to this point. In a month or two I will be ready to take on a full japanese VN though. I must get ready for angel beats.
Any chance you could help me try to understand something when I encounter something I can't figure out?
Happy to i've been helping sasami with learning recently i don't mind giving out a hand where i can.
>but they won't adapt it to be the masterpiece the VN was for you.
Of course I know that, we're discussing which would do the least damage.
True, they did some good TM stuff, but did they adapt anything else? Someone doing rewrite must excel at both action and comedy.
Fuck no, ef was like a fanfiction, they changed so much stuff. Also I don't want powerpoint slideshows instead of animation.
I REALLY wanna do the sasasasasami route.
I REALLY wanna do the kanata route.
Alright thanks. I'm fine with basic grammar. It it the longer sentences that tend to leave me a little stumped sometimes. But really grammer is not too bad. It just takes a bit of practice. Its my lack of vocabulary that I have an issue with. Also learning kanji sucks.
I really want to have the time to learn moon. ;_;
>visual novels should be posted in /jp/
I really want an excuse to play the game again.
Depends how this F/SN adaptation goes for my final verdict on them. They have done coyote ragtime but that was an old ufotable. Realistically i'm just too jaded now i've only seen four or so VN adaptations that i can call above OK and i just wish they'd stop being ruined. I can't see the kyoani of now doing rewrite justice they've clearly gone on to care more about fanservice shows.
oh god and i'd almost forgot about ef too...
make the time!
That it does, but once you get through it you're basically home free. Happy to help where i can.
You should be posted on /jp/
my excuse was "I need to erase the anime from my head"
Grammar is what stopped me.
I know it's not hard, but I just couldn't get my head around it. I'm wired wrong for it or something.
I probably just wasn't putting in real effort though
I know about 2k kanji but I'm having trouble with grammar too, maybe I should have more focused on it than kanji... But everyone said kanji was the hardest part. I say bullshit.
Why are you the nicest anon I've ever chatted with?
It's probably more time consuming than difficult. I always hear to start Kanji early when you're starting grammar too, but that's just because there's so many I think.
I'm no expert though
I'm better with grammar because I use it all the time in classes I take at my university for fun.
What did you do to help learn vocab and kanji?
I seem to get that a lot, Thanks
I used anki and lots of books for the most part, and persistence a whole lot of that.
Wait, I dont get one thing. So in Little Busters you are basically in that closed world. How would romancing a girl work out?
I'm using anki for vocab at the moment. I need something else for kanji. It just doesn't stick for me. I am considering using RTK. What books are pretty entry tier that might help me out?
Nothing, its just been a while since ive played KiraKira
that accompanied with K-On! made me learn bass
I envy you, It makes me want to learn an instrument.
My mother actually gave me my great grandfathers old Hohner harmonica though, so I've been thinking about trying to learn to play it. I have no idea where to start though. Also bass is my favorite instrument.
You know bass too? People in this thread are just too awesome. Slap bass and funk bass are best bass.
Heisig is what i started with, the DJT has a good solid list of materials that can be worth a read.
Don't have a musical bone in my body ;_; massive audiophile for music though. My current goal is learning to draw.
Ive always wanted to learn harmonica honestly. Lots of ost that use it well, none that come to mind though, sorry. Work at it.
Know how how play is a bit of a stretch. When I had more time I learned reading tabs and transferred to scales. Not the best player out there by any stretch, but I occasionally go back to play an anime op or two. More into funk, cant slap to save my life. Also play a bit of ukulele, that was inspired by Clannad of all things. Youtube Dango Ukulele, that video made me go buy one immediately.
Well youre born with either more artistic or musical talent, but it doesnt mean you cant play. I cant draw, but if I set time for it im sure id be decent.
Hey guys you're all cool people and all, but it would be good to not become /soc/.
I've got the DJT pastebin, I just wish I had a little more time to put into japanese, damn you engineering.
This is true.
School rumble has harmonica, came to mind last second.
Sorry about that, lets start talking about Key ost now.
Which game/show had the most emotionally gripping ost im how it was implemented?
i suppose, i can work with being able to make picture one day atleast.
That's a time consuming one to be sure.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFAeLtAS43M I wonder if I'm emotionally attached or something Brings me to tears almost every time with how happy i am.
I don't listen to VN audio
This is bait
I really liked Rewrite's. A good piece seemed to come on at all the right moments.
I wouldn't call a majority of Rewrite's OST emotionally gripping, but there is a few songs in there are hit the heart. I did enjoy the OST substantially though.
That is true. The pieces that were supposed to be were though. At least to me. Like at then ending of Kotori's route when that music came on it hit me hard.
We could make an IRC i guess if people want to talk more
I'm playing planetarian tonight and plan to finish it before the next thread. What should I expect?
>A good piece seemed to come on at all the right moments.
Keys audio dept. seems to just be best at this for sure. They're really good at placement.
Please ride the train you shouldn't ask for spoilers!
I could have just spoiled the game for you.
This is why this is the best thread.
Translate it, weebs.
Welcome to the planetarium
point taken. I guess it is time to leave the thread before I learn something I don't want to.
They fix the Planetarium two hours in then Yumemi and Junker die while trying to escape.
How come Akanes such a bitch
You should tell us why. I abstain on this subject.
I don't know why she's such a bitch, all I know is that she's a bitch.
Why ask if I know?
She acts coldly towards you.
She's not really a nice person.
New thread when?
Are you the same anon who was asking this yesterday? There are 60 replies left until auto sage kicks in. Another thread will show up several hours from now regardless.
Who will get the last image this time?
about how many hours long is planetarium exactly?
I tend to take my time as I love listening to the voice acting, but I don't think it even took me that long. A quick reader could probably get it done in 3 to 4 easily.
Always lovely to see my favourite /a/nons still hard at work.
Doing our best!
I did it in about 4.
Reply 500 hype?
No. Mio chi will be thread killer
image cap strong
Save us from mio
How do i "Save" you from the hero.
I have absolutely no idea how many images there are to go.
12 I think but how many people are even left
We are in need of some more Rin.
a 2-4 of us atleast
"What do you think about the planetarium? That beautiful twinkling of eternity that will never fade, no matter when. All the stars in the sky are waiting for you.”
This is good. I'm leaving again to avoid spoilers
Good, keep it that way.
Surely this confirms inoue route.
After Touka route.
Rewrite EX when?
When you learn moon.
Only if there is a bug battling mini game. I want to use the legendary bug to crush everyone else.
Best key girl without a route. She's not the best key girl in general imo.
If Mio gets to show off that bod, the Rewrite girls should get the same chance.
sukomon is what I think I remember them being called.
They should just make a key party game that we can all compete for high scores on.
How about Chihaya Rolling?
Two nights this thread survived in a row. This has gotta be some kind of record.
How new are you? There is points of time where this happens for 1 or 2 weeks straight.
Chihaya could just use her Chihaya cannon to win. It would be cheating.
Not to sound like a broken record, but I mentioned yesterday that we had several threads a day when Rewrite came out a little under a year ago, as well.
Those were some funny bits.
The first beat revival is not far off now.
Has there been any word on groups wanting to translate it or should we begin he pre-assembly of the /a/ team. We'll stop half way too guys don't worry tradition lives on
I'm willing to help out with what I could. By that time my japanese would be decent enough I would hope. And as I've said before I'm decent enough with a computer.
I'm a touch sad about that, I'll want to avoid these threads to avoid spoilers.
Someone is going to unmark them and/or I'll absentmindedly display them, the only thing to do is to avoid these threads still the hype dies down.
>Implying the Chihaya Drill isn't her best move
The team would require an image editor(signs buttons menus etc.), programmer,(shizuru got this), translator (i'll be happy to do this), and a proofreader (so i can be litteral in my translation and it goes a lot faster). Only pitfall is makign sure everyone is in it for the long haul and wont just drop out in the middle due to boredom.
I pretty much always preface my spoilers with something stating they will be spoilers, or you can just tell so from the general topic at hand.
But really yeah you're going to get spoiled being here it's basically unavoidable.
I won't drop due to boredom, but I may drop due to heavy workloads. Or probably not drop, but I wouldn't necessarily be able to put a ton of time into it. Also if I'm the programmer, I'll need to familiarize myself with the engine and everything. I've never done it before so I don't know how much time it could take me. Maybe I'll work on cracking Rewrite by itself first as it will probably use the same engine right?
Yeah it's likely they will use sigulus again, though there is a possiblity they go for a new one. We can't really tell that yet though.
Even still that would give me some experience. Maybe I'll play with that and report back how it goes. I was going to do that with Kud Wafter but knowing that the other guy is working it and the situation he was in I wasn't sure if I wanted to get into that. Although I still might.
I'd really like to have kud wafer translated just so more people can know her story. after all her love was the truest .
I can offer boundless blind devotion to Key to ensure I wouldn't drop out.
What I can't offer is any skills, I like to piss around with images but I've no idea if stuff beyond my skill would be required.
If you don't mind dragging my useless ass along I can probably find bits a bobs to help with.
The specs of Rewrite and First Beat are very close, so I think it's a fair assumption that it will use Sigulus.
I want to help, but all I can do is make gifs.
We need advertisers! you two can work on the propoganda.
Warned you man.
>all I can do is make gifs.
Pfft, well, I laughed. That's got to count for something.
But viral advertising is against the rurus!
It's ok if we just use them in here!
Sounds like somethings going on here.
They're doing something productive!
I think. I'm not really sure but I'm advertising for them
Join us mio, it will be fuuuuuuuun
That was sad. I could see it coming from miles away but it was still sad.
If I could figure out Sigulus in advance then I'll gladly take part in the project then.
I understand. I just feel uncomfortable telling that guy we want to take away this project he has been working on that is something important to him.
what are we doing?
I'm going to share my sadness with you.
>I understand. I just feel uncomfortable telling that guy we want to take away this project he has been working on that is something important to him.
Depends why he actually quite. Is he seriously in distress? If so, he may be happy that someone would take over the project. He may have just wanted to take a break and will pick it up later. Some people get possessive over projects like this, so I'd make sure to be very tactful if you end up asking him.
> I'd make sure to be very tactful if you end up asking him.
This is the reason I haven't tried contacting him yet. I've been trying to figure out the best way to put it. But if I'm going to be working on another project I would want to make sure I could handle that first.
Key tends to get you like that even when you know it's coming ;_;
Yeah I've had the same thoughts behind it too, he seems like he really loves kud too so i wouldn't want to just steal the project, but at the same time if he just ends up dropping it another year from now and theres no interest in the VN then i'm just going to be more upset. I really just want more people to see the rest of her story because her route really was only the beginning of it, it's like a clannad with no after story.
Talkign about translatign angel beats intially, now we've gone off tangent.
It seems like he has some kind of disability making it too hard to write, but at the same time his twitter seems to usually be full of him doing things. If it's just a cop out and he wants to drop i'd rather he just say it so myself and others could take over instead of hiding behind a lie to avoid flaming, but if not i understand he wants to keep working at it.
>It seems like he has some kind of disability making it too hard to write, but at the same time his twitter seems to usually be full of him doing things.

I've only been going off what you've told me in this thread before, but I assume it is a cop out as you usually don't develop disabilities like this out of the blue. He would have mentioned it before as it got progressively worse. Either way, I'd look into it as much as possible instead of straight up asking if he'd be willing to turn it over to someone else.
Ah. Well I can't translate anything aside from english to spanish. Wouldn't be much help
46.7% of 23.5 GB
It didn't have to end this way.
We'll meet her in robot heaven, r-right?
http://hosikuzu.wordpress.com/ here's his blog, i can kind of believe him. But it's been just on 3 months since the last sign of progress, i'm not really hopeful to say the least. I'll give him a little more atleast before i try to steal the project.
I finished a few hours ago
And I'm not seeding
Just seems like a convenient excuse. Might be time to start asking him some questions if his blog page permits it.
100% as of two days ago. :3
I'll just tweet him when it comes to it.
Thread about to 404 here and i need to go out for an hour anyway ;__; See you all tommorow!
or in a few hours to be exact
I'm just kidding, I don't even know what torrent you guys are talking about
I'll see what I can do.
Here, have this, it's even worse.

Random question. Whats the usual amount of text in a VN? In kB?
Also we might as well sage to let the thread die
I think it's around 700,000-1,000,000 words for long ones, but you'd have to check.
