Best Key girl.
Shiori a love
kud is olev
I love you kud
I love you.
That's not Tomoyo
Kotomi is mai waifu
That's not ***.
Kotori a best.
Would you eat her sweets?
Thats not best Key key.
How does it feel knowing Doki is still only 61.59% done with EX.
>Not knowing moon already
It's been 3 years since LB was TLed why haven't you learned moon yet or even started. It's practically a necessity of life for anyone who loves VNs.
Great because I can laugh at you while playing PE.
>yfw AB First Beat is translated before EX is done
>AB stalled at 60% forever because TL comes down with crippling arthritis.
That specific picture makes her look like the retarded DaL.
I thought it was a DaL fanart too.
because she is bwaka
What's the best Key VN to play first?
Nobody would probably agree with me, but I'd say Kanon. It isn't as "deep" as some of Key's other works, but it still introduces you if ever so slightly to Key magic, which can surprise people in later works like Little Busters and Clannad. Just my two cents. All the characters are likable and the stories are cute in Kanon, so I feel it's really worth a read regardless.
Inoue route when?
i would say Starting at planetarian is really good and going into air, kanon as the next then decide on the last 3 depending on what you like more. I'd definitely agree it'd be better to go older to newer as it helps to get past some of the more dated art.
sprites soon i swear my internet isn't amazing.
After the Touka route.
You didn't need to download HF all over again you know, I feel kind of bad
Komomo best girl
i don't mind it's not a big download i just have 3rd world internet so it'll take me a little bit but i will make sure to get them done.
Planetarian is wonderful obviously, but I feel it's only a good suggestion for people who have some backround in VN's already as it lacks choices, decision making, and the short length is much rarer compared to other Key VN's. Air is still pretty good, and call me crazy but I don't feel like it aged as well as Kanon despite coming afterwards. My opinion means jack, so he couldn't go wrong with either, I think.
When Key decides to be merciful.
You're probably right on planetarian actually. And i'd agree air hasn't aged as well which is why i'd say it's easier to get it done sooner if you get too used to visuals from later games it can sometimes be a bit of a drawback for people. I still have a hard time convincing some people to pick up the kanon VN because they don't believe me when i say the ride is well worth it even after seeing the anime.
I heard the ending for Planetarian is really sad, and there is no key magic to make things happy again. Will I regret playing it?
First Beat confirmed GOTY 2014?
What'd I miss? I was at a con these past two days.
Not much. Same old stuff.
Took any pics? Any Key related things you saw there?
get anything good?
It's worth the play 100%
Circlejerk, Sayafag reprimanding the thread for it, and suddenly silence. So nothing.
Nah, it was pretty small, and half the people were dressed as L. I went to a calligraphy panel that was pretty fun.
I want Sayafag back
He said he'll be back to spoil First Beat.
>3 moon readers
sayafag is still lurking among us.
It is definitely worth the 4 hours you spend on it.
He was back earlier today not 12 hours after claiming he was gone.
That was a Saya thread, though, not the usual night BKG thread. And he was there to tell people not to watch the anime.
Only been to one non-nip con and it was pretty much the same with a few english VA there.
wasn't he commenting on the episode as he watched it too just before the wafuspammer? BKG thread is a BKG thread
>And he was there to tell people not to watch the anime.
Well, at least he is committed to performing good public service, but it was still a bkg thread with many of the same posters. All the usual replies where still pretty much there.
funny how the Saya thread was just non stop Kud spam as well. Fuck it's cancer.
It was sadly missing the main star.
it literally stopped after like 20 minutes, go see some archives of nagisa spammer.
I wouldn't say it was the same usual thread though. At least by the time I got there it was all shitposting and kudspammer.
Do you guys get this?
I see the り, but no ろor ロ.
The parenthesis and 2 is the badly written ロ
It is a bad
ロ then リ
So what level of suffering are you expecting from angel beats?
That's not cockroach
Kind of lame.
I think it is kind of funny. Did you not find that to be mind blowing like Kengo did?
Enough to make maeda quit scares me.
I'm halfway convinced that was just an attention whore move.
Wouldn't surprise me inb4 he's back within the month and pretends nothing happened sayafag has always been moody.
I thought it was pretty good, but you'd really have to go the extra mile in order to see it, which makes it somewhat unsatisfying.
Truly best key girl.
i'm ready for the first two girls atleast, we know most of their routes but we're going to suffer none the less. I'm most worried about what he's going to do with true ends, what he intends to do that could lead to him leaving, it's not like he's that old or anything and he loves writing but his writing takes a toll on him so i expect something painful if he feels he needs to end his work at this.
What's this about Maeda leaving? First I've heard of it.
While not Key, Maeda still has that ongoing manga Hibiki no Mahou, and now that the artist seems to be back in good health it looks like it will continue.
>Hibiki no Mahou
next chapter supposed to be on the 26th hope it's actually right and kadokawa isn't screwing with us again.
He has said he is quitting before but I feel like this really will be his last work due to the fact of how many big name people they are bringing in and the fact it will be released in six volumes. They are giving it special treatment that they haven't really done with anything else before. And since it will be his last work and with how long he has been planning this I can't help but feel that even if there is a happy end, there are going to be some seriously depressing moments. It wouldn't surprise me if one or two of the volumes is complete suffering.
What other writers do you know of to where their writing takes this much of a toll on them.
volume i mean volume...
He has said he's taking a break before, he's called this one his final work.
I can't really think of any writers that are damaged as much as he is by their own works.
Oh I thought he said he was quitting before but didn't. I know there has to be some writers that are this damaged by their own work, but I can't think of any in the anime/manga/VN industry other than him.
Is Hibiki no Mahou any good?
i found it pretty enjoyable probably not at the top of my recc. manga list but it's good.
I'm certain i've heard of others but i can't seem to think of any others off the top of my head i'm sure there are more.
Seems it's just that.
The last person I can think of off the top of my head who was really affected by their work was Heath Ledger. He wasn't a writer but it was a similar case. I just hope it doesn't affect Jun as much as it did Ledger as Ledger accidentally overdosed on drugs from the depression or something like that. I hope Jun is less affected by it than that.
The thought of maeda doign that is too depressing, he's easily amongst my favorite writers ever I'd hate to see him withdraw from it forever. Heard a lot about ledger here since he was considered somewhat of a treasure and it was pretty sad to have that happen. I really hope he doesn't push himself too far.
The industry would take a major hit
Exactly, I would be fine with him quitting until he finds a way to cope with it. I assume with as much as he loves writing that even if he does quit he might come back after a few years. The issue is if he can truly find a way to cope with everything during that time. It isn't healthy to where after every one of your works you have to take a break because it affects you so much.
I do hope he does come back, he's only 34 that's so young to give up on his lifes passion after he's gotten this far. He's been writing since he was so young too.
I think he needs to write keyphantasm, an entirely happy work to clear his mind of the suffering he causes himself from his VNs.
Maybe so, I really want a keyphantasm. But like you said he is so young, which is why I would be okay with him taking a few years off to figure out the method to cope with everything, because I doubt he could continue on like this. But, it would appear he is at least going to be working for the next three years, barring a mental breakdown which I am honestly a little afraid of. Anyways it is time for sleep.
May you all have sweet dreams of your Key girls!
Oh i really hope not. that would be such a horrible way to end things.
Fixed version with correct timeline and one
Thanks for that didn't know it had a one piece to it.
That's not Asuho.
Preferring Midori is preferring sluts and rapists.
This thread needs more Kyou.
Enough to counterbalance the fact that Iwasawa will finally get more screentime.
She's basically going to be the first to go still though, her disappearance triggered the entire shows events almost.
D-don't say that! ;_; This could be different, with a completely different turn of events depending on the choices of the player.
But yui route needs iwasawa to end, how else does she join gidemo, and if you don't play yui route and you don't end iwasawa's route. who do you play.
got any more?
Didn't a recent official statement sort of disparage the idea of a Yui route?
Yui iwasawa and matsuhita are first up.
You can probably do matsuhita and nothing until later if you want to avoid removing iwasawa from your common route, but yui is, unless her route has changed significantly, likely locked behind a finished iwasawa.
Huh. Interesting. I'm just happy that Key's giving us an Iwasawa route, and hinted at Yuri and Hinata as well. Only one thing left on my list.
Naoi route when?
So Kanade's route will be locked out until she is the last one left?
He got a route in the anime so he'll more than likley be in there. I imagine he'll end up as a part of the second to last volume along side yuripe and maybe kanade... i really can't say anything for that i'd be comfortable with at this point, kanade is PROBABLY the true route girl, but it's covering so much more than the anime anything could happen, there might even be new characters we haven't seen yet.
She's never the last one, unless you mean last girl in which case it would be a safe bet that she is, but like i said it's so far into a far bigger VN than they've ever done before we can't be sure of anything that far on.
Do we know when the first part will be released?
spring 2014, nothing confirmed on how big it is yet, just how many CGs so no way to guess how long a TL will take yet never
I've never played a multi-release VN before or almost any VN for that matter so I really don't know what to expect. I just hope I can see Iawasawa be the best girl she always deserved to be.
I think "this year" is all we've got to work with.
To be fair her and yui really got all of the development, yuri was sort of brushed over and gone past, and kanade was incredibly rushed. Yui and iwasawa were the only ones who really got a chance to have a full story, they were both still rushed though. Yui a best I'm really interested to see how well the others develop and the common route as the story progresses as well as the gaps to be filled in between those two routes.
why's she so lewd.
Does Lucia's route get any better?
I'm really starting to hate this bullshit with this curse and little girl w/e shit
The date scene.
Make sure you take medicine for your heart beforehand.
Mio is so lewd
Wonder if HF will be out translated before then.
Mio is the real lewdest buster.
The second half of Lucia's route feels completely different from the first half.
Lucia's route contains the highest mark of the VN, but to some also the lowest by the end.
Probably will be depending if someone picks up AB straight away or not.
>killed a thousand of people
>still get a happy ending
God I hate ryuukishi for his bullshit writing.
Someone even said they are playing Lucia's route.
She wiped out a whole city and Kotarou became so dense that not even Lucia could cut through him at the end but its okay because they got together and lived happily ever after.
The first half was so good but the second half was so bad.
/a/ has never been good with spoilers so if you go on a thread without having finished the show/VN/whatever then you should be prepared for spoilers.
Not him, but this isn't a thread specific to that series and it's not that fucking hard.
>not key specific
i feel like you're implying something
>The first half was so good but the second half was so bad.
Actually, the first half was also shit.
Coincidentally, I just started Umineko, how likely am I to like knowing that I fucking love Higurashi but found Lucia's route terrible?
You are horrible
But I'm not lucia's route.
Why nobody is talking about LB ex ?
No side character ever made me laugh as much as Masato does.
I found Sakuya and Esaka to be funnier in rewrite.
Haven't played that much of Rewrite yet.
This. I'd like to know more about Jun Maeda.
Well you better get to it, you're missing out.
The inside is more important than the outside, Anon. Nagisa is truly best girl
I cried so hard during that sequence.
"I hoped you wouldn't regret meeting me"
>highest mark of the VN
>In Lucia's route
Lucia's route was terrible the entire way though and the date scene was not anything special. It just stands out because it was the only date scene in the entire VN. She acts like a very generic tsundere with big tits and they added edge to her. I don't understand how anyone could like her or her route.
Loli loli hunters unite?
Clannad is the only anime I watched multiple times and that I plan on rewatching regularly.
Have you read the VN?
Of course, beforehand.
Ah yes I was looking for the Lucia thread
Complaining about that in Rewrite? You realize that Akane killed BILLIONS of people and still got a happy ending?
Why would anyone post her?
There is a reason neither of them are in my top 3 Rewrites
thread is kill
Well in her case she was banished from society to live as an outcast so while it is better than she deserved it is not as happy as some of the girls got as an ending.
Also Akane's boobs > Lucia's boobs
rorirori hantahs wa gokuyo!
It was still better than Shizuru's.
Extracting sprites is slow
I can't believe that anon had you download HF again just so that he could get some sprites. What a jerk bag.
How exactly are you doing this? Are you using a tool?
It's ok anon i get all these adorable shizu sprites too i should have done it sooner. I wish it was easier to cut it down to be a transparent PNG but that takes time.
I'm using Crass, it can rip from around 170 engines but it only extracts, and it also doesn't make sprites transparent (As seen here) it's not as good as homebrew hack setups like RLdev or kirikiritools but it gets what you want out if you're not that technically inclined.
Of course it won't be transparent if you don't convert it properly with a program that can read bmp transparency
I did that for 4chan to let me upload it, conversion comes later after the rest of the files extract.
If you know a program that can batch convert bmp to png while keeping transparency, be sure to tell me because I only found gimp who can do that.
using gimp it shouldn't take too long to do each one. I could probably find better setting but I did this in about 20 seconds.
You can batch convert with gimp?
forgot pic. There is a slight black outline though, I think I would just have to put on feather edges to do something with that.
Not batch.... but you can do it kind of quick depending on how many sprites there are. It doesn't turn out perfect though as shown here.>>101913913
>ayu sex scene
Wow nevermind that looked a lot worse than I thought it did.
I do it manually in photoshop.
Pretty much no way to do it in batch it does some really stupid stuff like remove all the character body lines
That's what I thought, sure doing it manually is possible but really tedious, if you extracted 100+ sprites
I only care nough about shizuru and kotori to do this, inouebro gets the inoue too
Seriously what the fuck lucia you don't need 3x a man sprites as anyone else
This is what happens when you try to batch convert.
I'm really surprised that the program doesn't have a transparency option though
Lucia doesn't deserve anything. They should take all the effort they put into her and give it to Inoue.
But extracting them is fast and easy if you're using the right tool.
I had the LB and Rewrite sprites transparent and extracted to a folder but had to delete the sprite folders to make the image folder fit in a USB drive
I forget the exact process but it requires you to use RLdev or something like that.
I should really look at putting some work into using RLdev again. Also is that what they used when cracking siglus? Because being different engines I would assume they would have to make some changes. That being said just at a quick glance some of the file structure was the same.
I know there's ways to do it otherwise, but i'm not very technical so i get stuck with crass and this. Inoue 1 down.
I'm 100% certain there has to be a batch way to convert it now that i'm realizing they use alpha channels...
The more I get to see Inoue's sprites, the cuter I think she is.
Thank you Wafu
Inoue is the cutest key girl. At least in my opinion
And she's never going to have a route
She pulls the same adorable blown away eyes as kud does i love it.
happy to help it's going much faster now i'll stick them all together for you in a second.
I think I like the vocal version more
http:// puu THIS IS A FULL PERIOD sh/6SrPg THIS IS A PERIOD zip
can i not just spoiler links now either seriously....
Now we can make our own inoue route!
Good job wafu.
Why is rldev so deprecated and annoying to get working from source? -__-
I'd never be able to work with source i went for the premade binaries Now working on kud wafter sprites!
So.... key phantasm when?
Happy to help
So where are the cocks?
Come back home and find this? Thanks mang.
Whenever we make it.
I can reply however I want to.
Shizuru probably want to extract his own, but would you like the rest of the kotori sprites?
I had to take care of something, so that's why this is such a late response..
I just woke up from the nicest dream about Nagisa.
Is she the waifu I never noticed?
Here you go it's no problem
You found her anon
Why choose one girl when you can have two?
Thanks mang. A waffle to show my gratitude.
Happy to help thanks for the waffle!
Kanon is good, but there's one thing I miss in it.
I happen to really like waffles too. They are the superior breakfast-dessert.
These threads are always shitposting and spamming.
Pancakes are nice and all, but I'll always pick a waffle.
Fucking love waffles
waffles are just the best.
Why didn't Komari throw a waffle party? What is wrong with her?
because she only likes sweets.
Pancakes aren't really sweet though, or at least they aren't any sweeter than Waffles. You can apply the same sweet toppings to each as well.
She's eating a waffle right there too, canon proof of waffles > pancakes.
Here we have a couple of gentlemen with refined taste
Drunk Nagisa is best Nagisa.
she wants the D.
Everyone wants Clannadman's D.
Some people will hate me for saying it, but that waffle is the most adorable thing in that pic. That's the cutest waffle I've ever seen. 2D waffles are superior to their 3DPD counterparts, but even amongst 2D waffles, that one stands above the rest.
Holy fuck. My heart. I am kill.
Masato is best bro.
>>Grown up Nagisa
More like Tomoya's dick in Nagisa
Keyphantasm the shizuruarmy is a thing. I'm having too much fun with these i really wanted to finish my rin1 replay today.
Really wish i had TKs sprite now i'd make a gif of that rap battle right now if i could.
As a 2dwafflecon i wholeheartedly agree, 2d waffles are just supperior in shape and form against a 3dpd waffle any day.
I'm fine just watching.
Wonder if they'll risk ever having more children
Tomoya is going to need some more orbs for that shit
Fun is fun no matter how it happens. This is really making me want a Keyphantasm
We need it now.
Which key girl is the best gangster?
Wow, they really want the dick.
Look at them begging for a baby
both of them
requesting the staredown.
I need to get on the clannad/kannon/air sprites now.
Or did i just pull a stupid and forget a skit from the actual games I'm wracking my brain but i can't think of one
I was thinking about what we talked about where Mio, Kotomi, and someone else were in a staredown
Could someone explain what is about to happen here?
Fucking JC Staff.
Can someone explain this gag?
An autistic evil female clone of a dude is about to stab him
The neighbor got a new fence.
They fixed that in the BD, I think.
The neighbour got a new fence.
Ok i thought so, kanade aswell, but we don't have AB sprites yet ;_;
In the mean time.
Don't lie i know you love it.
Now that we're talking about Little Busters, I started watching it yesterday. Today I watched episode 3 and I almost fell asleep. Does it get any better?
Also Tomoyo best girl ever
Yeah you need to do something to enjoy it, go to the folder, select all the videos files, right click, delete. then go to nyaa and get the VN.
JC Staff a shit. Read the VN.
I'll consider it, thanks.
Tomoyo a shit. Worst Clannad.
Huh, this is funny.
She was manipulated, desperate and procecuting her is pointless when Guardian controls everything behind the scenes. Hell, Lucia was basically sent to a prison of sorts. Not like she has anywhere to go either. The fuck else happy ending is she suppose to receive? The shooting squad?
Ryukishi loves to make his girls suffer the worst and then give them the ultimate happy ending that they deserve, see Rika.
Read the VN shitlord. But yeah the anime is pretty good, if you didn't like it you might not like the VN, but that's just me.
What does that have to do with his comment?
It was in the spoiler.
Damn kud strong i love it haha
>Being a gaiafag
>come join us, we have free lolis hanging around
>but, you know, we might blow up the wrong on one of these
>not saying WHEN, just that we'll probably do it, maybe
>in the meantime, have our selection of lolis
Morally, Guardian is complete right as I support them because fuck the Kagari and they have the best mascots but Gaia's offer is just too good in comparison.
Not to mention you gain nothing from joining Guardian unless you're a freak and even then you get a semi shitty job.
Gaia all the way.
blow up the *world one of these days.
Fuck I need sleep.
>Joining a cult just for lolis
You've got fucked up priorities.
If you want loli's, the best loli in the game is a top Guardian agent. You've been duped by propaganda, yet again.
Dude, free lolis.
Where the fuck else can you get a better offer?
Sit through a few conference about how the world is fucked and have all the lolis you want while you wait for the end of the world and shit.
You honestly can't tell me it's not the greatest idea in the world.
You think this is a fucking game? People are risking their lives for YOU motherfucker. You piece of Gaya shit. I hope your loli's cut open your stomach in your sleep and play with your intestines as you watch them and slowly die. Fuck you.
I'd rather not doom humanity, and thus doom the lolis.
If you loved them you would join Guardian, so they could stay alive.
>best loli or harem of loli
Shizuru's great and all but nothing beats a voiceless loli. pun intended.
Especially an entire harem of loli.
Guardian just has their mascot to show off. Gaia regularly has lolis laying around and freely given by parents who join in. It all works out.
Thank you Kyoubros
That's not my waifu
Woah woah woah, calm down man. I never said. I was gonna work for Gaia, just be a part of them.
Not like me helping Gaia or Guardian is even going to make a difference either way.
There's a 50/50 percent chance that the world would end sooner than expected and a 100% that there won't be any lolis in the future.
The best thing to do is to stock up on lolis as much as I can while there's still time.
>Not like me helping Gaia or Guardian is even going to make a difference either way.
I detest that line of thinking.
Man, Shizuru sure knows how to handle weapons.
She sure knows how to hold a firm grip on her weapon and keep her eyes on her target.
It's like she just lets go within the motion and just has fun.
She must have had a lot of training, and good teachers to teach her all those relaxing movement.
With that attitude you're not fit for either no loli for you.
Go to bed Kagari, no one likes you.
There's a reason you keep getting cut open for one reason or another.
You realize that Gaia loli's are guaranteed to be retarded right? You're basically putting yourself around a bunch on prepubescent, geriatrics who need constant care. Again, go with the super loli over at Guardian. She'll take care of you and make you feel special as opposed to you having to be a den mother to a bunch of drooling, idiot loli's over at Gaia.
I'll finish Rewrite and stop skimming random spoilers one day. What about Gaia and lolis?
Well that's suggestive.
>That classy clothing which allows maximum flexability
>Them properly laced up combat boots
>That firm stance
>Properly aiming her weapons
>That trigger discipline
Shizuru knows her shit
Look dude. Just because you don't think it will make a difference doesn't mean you can just do what you want. If you really want you lolis go to gaurdian and have them train you to go into gaia undercover to jailbreak all the lolis and give them their freedom and happiness. Or do you not even care about all those loli's well being? You are scum not fit to live.
>You realize that Gaia loli's are guaranteed to be retarded right?
Yes, I know that, and?
>You're basically putting yourself around a bunch on prepubescent, geriatrics who need constant care.
No, I'm going to be surrounded with lolis who don't do much after ''intensive care''.
Funny, isn't Guardian working so that ''I can live longer''?
Seems sort of contradictory, don't you think?
From my perspective, it seems Guardian would want me to enjoy myself with all those lolis for as long as possible. Or, at least, as long as Gaia isn't doing anything illegal and keeps to themselves. Like raising lolis to be obedient for example.
There's a lab full of lolis that they train to drive mecha using plant live.
Cool shit but weird shit happens to the lolis. Not to mention you need to ''train'' the lolis so that they don't fear ''how to drive'' properly.
>From my perspective, it seems Guardian would want me to enjoy myself with all those lolis for as long as possible
Did we play the same thing, they would want you to help keep earth from exploding.
They're about self-preservation, not hedonism.
Nah nah nah, you misread me.
Guardian wants Gaia to stop wanting to blow up the world and maintain the status quo, even though both sides know it won't last.
But if the status quo is maintained, that means I can stay with the lolis until they find a solution to the long term problem, right?
They're not about hedonism but they wouldn't care about what I do with lolis so long as it doesn't involve murdering people.
In a sense, Guardian would be supporting me since I would not be technically helping Gaia. Just, you know, leeching off them.
>but they wouldn't care about what I do
If they found out you were with Gaia, they'd kill you on site regardless of what you are or aren't doing. At best you'd be dragged off and interrogated and you'd never see you loli's at Gaia again. The propaganda has got you good. I've never seen anyone so far gone.
You're forgetting about the lolis and only worrying about the ''what if''.
We've been showed that Guardian doesn't directly attack Gaia sites, even though they are open with the public.
Like I said, I'll be with them but not working for them.
i like lewd key girls
That puffy vulva looks like a sack of balls.
This is madness!
it's her... right?
> You will never work out with Masato.
Be honest, you cried at this part in Rewrite.
Nope, almost though.
