The KS general on /vg/ is the very definition of a cancerous circlejerk. They've had 2020 threads about it in a fucking row. You simply cannot talk about a single VN that much in a row. The threads are filled with tripfags jerking eachother off and they're the prime reason why KS threads were shunned from /a/.

We can hate a community for ruining the fun for everyone else just because they want to post "Rin is best girl" for the millionth time.

Yeah, it's his original trip. I have a ton of his old threads screencapped. I wasn't even aware of him even changing it or dupes. Sadly I haven't actually seen him in any threads myself. It used to be that the rare monstergirl threads were a summoning ritual for him. But since those have turned into commonplace crap I haven't participated in them in years.

>>100763549
But they're having fun.
And KS is shit, why do you want to discuss it anyways?
I mean, if you REALLY wanted to, then you'd just have to stop being a baby and put up with /ksg/ and the people in there. You can't expect them to stop the fun they've been having for 2 years just so you can discuss things your way.
If you can't do that, then go somewhere else, ouside of 4chan, for your KS needs.
People should really stop expecting to be able to discuss every single one of their interests in 4chan. You're almost like those kids who think they have the right to discuss Naruto in here just because it's Anime.

Oh yes I'm mad.

It'd be nice if I could discuss Katawa Shoujo on the board that spawned it, with the community that helped bring it to life without being tossed in with the autists over at the KS General who had only heard of the game after its release.

To add, it makes me a bit sad that a significant piece of the boards history is shunned so badly. I understand why, of course. But I can't help but feel nostalgic over the years leading up to the full KS release. Again, the sheer amount of OC that came from it was amazing.

>>100764143
I loved it when KS was first initally released. Lots of good discussion and /a/ were giving their honest opinions about things in it. I don't think it was possible for KS to ever live up to the hype, but the thing we got was good and that's all we wanted.

Oh, but they did, it seems.
And I'd rather just let them discuss the damn thing in peace while I keep my memories of the good times from back in the pre-release days, as hipster as that might sound. The full version was crap, anyways, I got bored before finishing all the routes.

>>100763344
Have you ever visited their IRC? The development was a fucking mess. All the devs talked shit behind each others back and had a lot of resentment for each other. They became trapped working on this thing for no pay and to forever have the social stigma of being the person who worked on that "4chan visual novel".

KS is still a fun read, and in in the end that's all we could really ask for from a visual novel involving disabled anime girls. But working on it seemed to be an absolute nightmare for everyone at FourLeafStudios and they understandably just want to move on.

>>100764472
>But I just find it hard to believe you can have a meaningful discussion about a VN after the years since its release.
It's very possible! After all these years I still enjoy a good Saya no Uta thread now and then. The trick is to NOT make threads about the VN thousands of times in a row.

>>100764581
Remember when one of the devs was splicing up CGs and posting them in different threads, causing everyone to look for them and to jigsaw them back together? Fun times.

Exactly. That's why I can't believe the ksg can have anything meaningful to add after so many threads. Same as you I love the odd Saya no Uta thread here and there. But those are good BECAUSE they aren't a 24/7 thing.

No no no, 2 years later and people are still getting this shit wrong.

Raita drew the original image, there were some threads on /a/ about it being neat if it were an actual VN and then some people got together and made it.

There were only occasionally some dev threads while it was being made however to say that /a/ "helped bring it to life" is bullshit since the team was mostly independent of 4chan in actual development.

Why people would want to associate with it is beyond me, /a/ was part of the 1% inspiration. The actual dev team was the 99% perspiration (and horrible amateur writing) that went into making the cancerous, over-discussed circlejerk of a VN that /vg/ knows and loves.

Emis new sprite was an improvement, but I hated how sketchy and out of place it seemed in comparison to everyone elses. I thought that it was just a place holder for the updated Act 1, I never expected it to make it into the final release.

Still, it's an improvement over old Emi.

That's pretty much every Emi fan ever. Most of them couldn't stand her in Act 1 as she seemed to be forced onto Hisao. Her route won them all over.

Shizune however had the opposite happen. She was praised for being the best written girl in Act 1, yet in the full game everyone saw that her route was trash.

Emi was pretty annoying in the demo. Did they change anything about her act one route in the full game? I know they changed the ending of Hanako's route one ending from just playing chess to watching fireworks from the window.

>>100766046
Lily's route is a good follow-up to Hanako's in that it proves that she'd actually have been able to grow as a person had she not been constantly coddled. You get Hanako's bad end by being a white knighting faggot due to failing to understand that she hates being perceived as someone who has to be protected. You prevent her growth and choke your relationship with your own bumbling hands..

Shizunes route was fucking dry and boring. It had no dere, the side characters were unnecessary AND unnecessarily wacky, the ending was IT WAS FUN BUT IM GOING TO MY REAL LIFE and Hisao just rolls over and accepts it.

Just digging though the forums to find more info on the girls. I'd post the link, but spam filter haet blogspot.

>Anna is a native of Vienna, and has never left the city. She's very aloof and independent, and often goes unnoticed in her ridiculous several-sizes-too-large clothes. She is intelligent, but a terrible student, because rather then working in class she prefers to spend it shoegazing (and yes, she listens to shoegaze while she shoegazes) whilst listening to music on her ridiculously expensive hi-fi MP3 player and Beyerdynamic T1's. Her favourite musical genres are the blues, and bebop, but she listens to most musical genres and has a rather eclectic musical taste; she is also a talented guitarist and pianist.

>When not listening to her seemingly infinite repositories of music or playing a tune, Anna is likely gazing into the depths of her computer, absorbing the newest piece of media to catch her attention. She is a huge otaku, with her favourite anime being Samurai Champloo, Welcome to the NHK, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. She also enjoys film, manga, western comics, video games (vis a vis her favorite game is Final Fantasy VI) and a few television shows, and has rather pretentious art-housey tastes.

I actually read E17 and YMK before KS, and I still liked KS. Of course YMK is 2/3s shit and E17 is 2/5s shit. If I had read Clannad and Higurashi before KS I might agree with you. KS is a better 'gateway into the medium' then SnU and YMK though.

Hey
Which stubby are we talking about here

>>100766536
Misha's depression is much more obvious and becomes a plot point earlier on. Shizune and Hisao both ignore it, even Shizune's asshole father notices and tells off Hisao about him not doing anything about it but Hisao still doesn't do shit.
Misha kills herself at the end of Act 3 by standing in front of an incoming truck, Shizune was walking with her and didn't notice she stopped until it was too late
If you get the bad end Shizune becomes so depressed about how pathetic her life is and the guilt she feels over Misha's death that she stops eating and drinking and dies of dehydration in the hospital after ripping out her IV.

The KS one was the first, and the guy did a new one each week, including Haruhi and K-On, and then about halfway though the Utena one people whined and bitched enough about "not /a/" or something that it got deleted. The creator didn't feel like getting banned after the mods deleted the thread, so he vanished.

At this point, I don't blame them. We need some good old fashion purging.

>Isolda prefers to keep to herself rather than interact with other students as a part of a group. She is quiet yet ambitious, and enjoys a close relationship with her natural surroundings- she is a proud member of the school's astronomy club. However, she is also a bit of a worrywart and will often misinterpret passing remarks as holding much more importance than they actually do. Isolda's favorite drink is coffee, and she prides herself on being able to drink even the blackest of black brews. Her favorite movies are E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, The Goonies, and Manos: The Hands of Fate- though she doesn't quite follow the plot, it's an amusing distraction for her, and she can quote almost every line.

I agree.
Character wise, and ignoring Shizune's good end, both had great characterization and felt deep. The rest being meh.

No one is claiming it's the best VN anon.
It was just baby's first and people got overly emotional about it and others didn't like it.

Rin's route alone is a good read. And Shizune's route made you hate the living fuck out of that bitch in a way that wasn't forced at all and made complete sense.

If you liked Ever17's twists, you'll like Root Double. It's written by one of the writers of Ever17 (not the one that rehashed it into 999 and VLR).

Early on, it references the seeing self in mirror and the mystery man in the pendant twists from Ever17, in a way that says "We know what you're thinking, and no, we're not going there again."

Yup. You can probably find the most updated version somewhere in the KS forums.

Fucking awesome. I'll download it right away.
I'm currently busy reading Hototogisu so my hands are busy.

I'm really glad she's posting again, I was getting genuinely worried when she temporarily disappeared from the internet

Agreed, I'm a big fan of her art, and she seems pretty cool too.

>>100767994
You could say it looks retarded.

>>100768094
It's nice to see that she still seems to have fond feelings towards KS. I hear that Pimmy tries to distance herself pretty far from it. Which is a shame because that drawing of Misha she did was super hot. You all know the one

If nothing else this game introduced me to Nujabes, so that will always be a plus

I just did her route because I read a lot and thought the bookworm thing was fucking cute, normally I can't stand moeblobs.

She's my favorite by a long shot though, weird how that happened.

You're funny, I like you.
>>
The funny thing about the girls in KS is that their injuries extend to how they interact with other people in a more meta way.

Rin cannot touch other people and get them to understand her.
Emi cannot run away from her troubles.
Lily cannot see her future which has already been decided for her.
Shizune does not communicate well with people and is the main cause of her problems.
And Hanako doesn't want to be seen weak when her wounds make her seen as little as possible.

I always found that funny.

Congratulations, you understood the most basic thing about KS and its characters.
>>
>>100768502
Thanks. I feel so proud.
I just stated something I found funny, not something no one noticed.

Was it rape or candy?

I don't know in what weird alternate dimension I've stepped in that this thread was allowed to take flight and remain relatively devoid of shitposting at that. Mods but asleep. Anyway, before I go to bed, let me just say Hanako best girl.
