Does CxM fandisk have plot? Or is it just short scenes and romance>>25021716Who is the best guy
>>25021716Is it just me or those guys look more samey than usual?
>heroine likes to cook and cleanNo, I can't self-insert like that
>>25023429I can do both but why would I want to in a game that's supposed to be wish-fulfillment?
>>25023563Exactly. I can cook, clean, and do laundry -most functioning adults can. I do it every fucking day as a necessary chore. Why would I want to play as a protagonist whose entire personality revolves around being a happy homemaker? Isn't this supposed to be escapism?
>>25023563>>25023620You dont like when boy goes "uwaaah ume dayo!" when he eats your rolled omelet?
>>25023620You want an otome game where the mc puts her career before everything else and has no time for relationships or to start a family?
>>25023695It's an escapist fantasy where you can have anything you want. Why wouldn't you want to be pampered?
>>25023670That's nice, but surely the charming and lovely character the boys are falling head-over-heels for has talents that aren't related to keeping house.>>25023695Why does it have to be one or the other? Otome heroines can do more than be career-driven cakes and NPC-tier nobodies who like to cook and clean. They can be princesses learning to rule a kingdom and find a suitor to rule with. They can be witches, magical girls, pop stars, authors, literally anything. And 8/10 times they are demure wallflowers with "domestically inclined" as their key personality trait.Honestly I think "likes to cook and clean" being the summation of a character's interests means the writers have absolutely no clue what girls actually like to do. Even Japanese girls who aim to be housewives have other interests like reading, some kind of art, following a particular band/music genre, gardening, social clubs, and so on. "Likes to cook and clean" means "girls probably like to do these things, so the protagonist does as well in order to be relatable".
>>25023620I don't self-insert so that's probably why I couldn't care less about that particular stuff. I'm mostly looking for MCs that aren't a complete damsel or devoid of any personality. She could have sucking dicks or anything as her hobby as long as she can produce fun interactions with the guys I'm good.
>>25023429>love interest can't cook or clean
>>25024246If I wanted that I'd just go outside
>>25024246>violence against cute boyswe're on a blue board, censor that shit
>>25024257But real guys can't cook or clean either
>>25023429I don't mind it when that's not their only character trait >colar x malice mc>can only cook and clean>thinks that spending a night in a man's apartment when she's in her 20s is scandalous>old fashioned retard otherwise>doesn't think her brother should hang out with people who dress flashy because they might be bad guysIsn't that too much even for jpn standards? Obasans should retire and not write otome characters anymore
>>25024306That's the real problem with otome games, they're written by boomers
>>25024306Yurika is one of the best otome MCs and she did loads of cooking. She just had other character traits too like being a psychopath.
I like when games let you know a guy's food preferences though.
Cooking is fine as either interest or a hobby, but liking cleaning is really pushing it.
>>25024422Cute. I wish Koei would remake this game and port it on switch.
>>25024483Making delicious food is a skill that's fun to develop since you can taste test and share the success. Cleaning is a necessary chore to live healthily. I can imagine there are some individuals who do enjoy it, but they are a very rare breed that's overrepresented in Otome (and shoujo in general).I'd like to see an Otome protagonist who likes to cook with the herbs she grows on her windowsill. An otome protagonist obsessed with plants so her room/apartment are covered in greenery and foliage. Feminine, nurturing, and practical while giving her a niche hobby to be obsessed with that fits into a metropolitan lifestyle.
>>25024483A lot of women enjoy leaving in a literal garbage heap, but knowing that the results of cleaning will be worth it makes the act more enjoyable.I wouldn't do any dishes if I didn't have to, but seeing the kitchen clean after doing them all and putting them away makes it worth it. I don't look forward to cleaning, but I do look forward to having my apartment in good shape and not a dump.
>>25024483>>25024569This, cooking is an actual hobby. Tacking on cleaning as a hobby to it is just "oh i just love being a doormat i just stepped right out of some generic harem">I'd like to see an Otome protagonist who likes to cook with the herbs she grows on her windowsill. An otome protagonist obsessed with plants so her room/apartment are covered in greenery and foliage. Feminine, nurturing, and practical while giving her a niche hobby to be obsessed with that fits into a metropolitan lifestyle.You can't make an MC like that because then I would just want to date her
>>25024483The sensible girl looking after a bunch of useless retards thing really wears on me. Wish there was more lazy piece of shit MCs. It's not uncommon in BL but in otome there's just like the bocchi musume MC I guess. I only played the prologue but Desert Kindom seemed like it might have been that sort of thing.
>>25022312I liked Orlok and this guy
>>25023934Is there an otome with a useless NEET protag? Asking for a friend of course.
>>25024865She gets dragged back to school but she's still a dumb hikki at heart. Coincidentally, her step brother is exactly what >>25024569 described.
>>25024865Finally the protag I would be able to self-insert as
Looking up kanji manually is slow and kind of a pain but apparently this game just hates text hookers, considering how the random otome game from DLsite I tried this on worked just fine. Ok game, you win. I'll have to do it slowly.
>>25024934Doesn't he add his semen to her food or something like that?
>>25024980Do you have an OCR program?
>>25024980Use VNR(Visual Novel Reader), it can extract text from a corpse. Sometimes you'll need text box to refresh few times before it'll kick in.
>>25024621Play Rune Factory 4
why don't otome games have an option to spread your legs at the start and skip right to the end of the route
>heroine is a fat fuck
>>25025010You're probably thinking of the bad end where he molests the protag and then shows another guy the "egg whites" on his hand.
>>25025243Literally /blog/>>25025199Yoshiwara mc has them open all the time, you can't skip anything though.
>>25025243How much more content does the psp version have compared to ds? Is it worthwhile content? Was thinking of starting with this to practice babby japanese and mine words.
>>25025484It's voiced and has some top tier actors
>>25025484The DS sucks ass visual and audio wise, just play it on PSP.
>>25025243why do you have a picture of me
I think the woman can't cook trope is more annoying because it's always presented as so funny and absurd, when I've actually met more Japanese women who can't cook than those who can.
I just want a heroine who's a dirty lech and sexually harasses her boys, or at least thinks about sexually harassing them. Finally a heroine I'd actually want to self-insert as
>>25026268Play Taisho Alice
I've finished Neil route in Shingakkou.Wow. The game is even better than I thought and I had very high expectations. The story, art and voice acting are superb. I've already run out of favorite lines saving slots. Religious themes are not just for flavor, but actively being discussed, sometimes with unexpected grasp. Neil has appealing personality and great synergy with the MC. The issues about his route are treated seriously and his ending is very touching. Sex scenes are short, but nice and the pre-sex talk is the best part. Now I've started Leonid route. As for the priest LI (the reason I've became interested in this game), he is really amazing, I can't wait to unlock his route.
>>25026304Played episode I through III a while ago. The parts Yurika messed with the boys were great but I don't remember her doing it frequently or going far enough for me to think of her as a dirty lech. Maybe my memory is just shit though
>>25026474There's also Tsubasa no Oka I guess. It's R18 so you're actually doing lewd things too not just flustering the boys. Unfortunately the actual story is total garbage and you're hardly ever in the perspective of MC, she just turns up to molest the boys every so often. Art is nice though.
>>25025542>>25025569Charging up da psp, cant wait for me and fat megane to get fit together, and maybe even hold hands...
>>25026653>you're hardly ever in the perspective of MCWouldn't it like being cucked by a random beautiful woman who rapes the boys (You) are interested in
>>25026668Just a warning but fat megane is shit. SHIT
>>25026721Nooooo D: he cute, why
>>25026653Shit thanks for reminding me of that one. Started playing it a while ago but got distracted and forgot about it. Seems worth playing for the protag even if the story's shit. I hope she tops the glasses butler.>>25026689As long as I get to see the boys getting raped by a woman I'm fine with this
>>25026925glad to help
>>25027024>I hope she tops the glasses butler.She basically rapes him so you're in luck.
>>25026742If I'm not mistaken hegoes to america and loses weight. Upon his return and becoming popular, he treats the fat chan like shitBasically fuck america
>>25027343wow what a fucking bitch. haven't even started the game and I am betrayed onichan help me
>>25027243Oh fuck yes. Looks like I have to get back to playing it now. Thank you, anon
What's the game or route you've replayed the most?
>>25027880Game: Kiniro no Corda 2 & 2 EncoreRoute: Len.Getting all his CGs with N3 and without walkthrough was hard. I had to play many times until I got them all. It was the hardest route for me.
>>25027880Norn9, only because it was my first Japanese game and I have a nostalgy boner for it.And the characters are cute.
>>25027880I don't replay by choice so Okita since I wasn't following a guide. Fuck Hakuoki.
>>25027880Mebius on PC and Vita
>>25027880TMGS2 is probably my most played otome-ish game of all time. I try and do Wakaouji's ending at least once every two years.
anyone played エゴと後悔のジレンマ? is it any good? I like the concept but I'm not sure If I want to get it
Is anyone here interested in Jack Jeanne? I saw some fo the designs and they looked really nice. I think it's release was delayed to December?
>>25031095I've lost track who crossdressing as who in that thing
>>25031180The main one crossdressing is pink haired MC-chan. The others are just femboys or in their "Jeanne" role.
>>25029954That reminded me I was planning to replay Mebius.I forgot that it started off with a whole bunch of rambling about local politics and shit. Pretty sure I didn't bother looking up any of the words I didn't know here when I first played it because I had no idea that Kyoichiro's family were supposed to be landlords renting farmland or whatever.
>>25031323i like how the japanese term for hick is mountain monkey
>>25027880Rayne. How can one man be so based?Also Takuma. Fuck. I love him.>>25029361His route is hard even with walkthrough.
Well it took em long enough, even if it's not a real gamehttp://rejetweb.jp/yuroma6/game/
>>25024621You could just make her an Adrian Monk type.
>>25024246I'm surprised anyone remembered haruchika
>>25031095The last I heard, bs log removed the otome tag again
>>25007166>HoneyWorks That one makes me mad because he didn't get to sing at all. I mean, can't help it since things got bad, but I still wanted his take on Ijiwaru na Deai
Ultimately most people don't really play otome for the heroine and giving her a personality only serves to potentially alienate some potential players (buyers)I probably haven't played as much otome as the rest of you, but I can really think of Ani from Dame Prince as a heroine whose popularity matched that of the boys.
>>25032260Those people have shit taste and shouldn't be catered to outside of mobile anyway
>>25032260Devs are pussies. They should make a based MC with both voice and personality and see how they get a new clean loyal public who will buy their games regularly.
>>25032192No way...I’m still holding out hope until we get more info since I’ve been digging the designs so much.
Rance gets to be hot and cool with a (horrible) personality and his series is the most acclaimed eroge of all time why can't we have a sharktooth rapist girl
>>25032927>sharktoothI like the way you think
>>25032927god I fucking wish
>>25032260If they are going the no personality route, I'd rather self insert as retard whose lack of personality is explained by plot. As opposed to playing as a retard whose entire personality is a literal grandma who doesn't even want to spread her legs
I've finished watching Koi Suru Tenshi Angelique anime adaptation (yeah, I know, I'm 13 years late for this), and holy shit... I have never felt this shipbaited before. The ending was so fucking biased it can't even count as multi-ed. I hated it, senpai.
Rather than self insert I see myself as an ever present wingman coaching the MC into getting her man.
>>25033408Being a cuck is fine too
>>25033408seems dangerously cuckish
Serious question: is self-insertion even possible?I rarely find the answer I want to give the boys. I almost always find myself choosing a cringy option between others that are cringier. I can never feel like MC. I only wish I was as lucky as her.
>>25033457Unless the games states that the heroine is the most gorgeous and special dick tamer who's been through 100 battles, and her family situation is really specific or something like 'she's the last white person of her race that needs to breed by the end of the year or everyone would be kill' I can do it
>>25033362I feel you anon. That ed will always be shit. It makes BroCon VN ed looks good. I assume you wanted either Zephel or Francis for Ange, didn't you?
>>25033659Yes. I expected it to be Zephel, but since he didn't have much participation in 2nd season I understood it was going to have an open ending. Francis would have been a good choice too, it wouldn't have bothered me (and he is smokin' hot), but wtf? She seriously chose a guy she met 5 episodes before the story reached the end?? The writers are hacks.
>>25032055waiting for password leaks tho it seems unlikely
>>25027343>loses weight after going to America2unrealistic4me, fucking dropped.
>>25032260Kan'u (Juuzaengi), Jed (Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk), and Yurika (Taisho Alice) are more popular than some of their LIs, IIRC.
>>25032927I would buy 10 copies of this
>>25032927Why can't Alicesoft collab with some other studio and revive Aliceblue's Ouji-sama series?
>>25032260>>25036827Well this isn't really a popularity poll but I guess you can consider it as one. People wanted to date Haruka 3's heroine over the guys
>>25039837She looks like a chad.
>>25033183>>25032662>>25032298If you think about it more, the MC not having a personality makes a lot of sense.First if the MC had a personality they'd have to spend more time carefully writing the story, since not only do they have another fully fleshed out character, that fully fleshed out character is at the center of the story. This would just be a wasted expense Also, giving her a personality might make her incompatible with some of the love options, either meaning some routes would be no good, or you'd have to spend more time and money on writing the route to make it satisfactory.Well a MC with a fully fleshed out character would produce a better story, the effort to do so would most likely outweigh the benefits.tldr: women with personalities are bad because they take more time and effort
I can see something like that. In BL my enjoyment is mostly from clashing of personalities and seeing how those different people would get together. While in otome I really don't care about the girl, she could as well be some alien monster preying on human men.
talking of aliens I found this doujin game while looking through vndb where MC appears to be a fat retarded alien(? maybe they're all aliens it's a scifi setting) if that's your thing
>>25032927Because she'd still be the focus of the sex scenes while your supposed love interests would just be the dildos that get her to orgasm. Like every other ero otome.
>>25036650Apeaking of rejet, why isn't Vanquish 2 up on the archive? All of them have sex anyway in the last track and the first boy did it loud and in doggystyle before the "nicer" sex scene, what could make the second installment so raunchy it's not allowed?
>>25039837Those rankings are all over the place. Aren't #3 and #4 for HaruToki 3 outright villains?
>>25043063>Aren't #3 and #4 for HaruToki 3 outright villains?>villainsThat answers your question. Villains with routes tend to be popular due to the fact that they have some of the best interactions with the MC too.See: Kakouton and Sousou from Juuzaengi.
You know the chucks/miniskirt/kimino thing actully kind of works.
>find yoko taro annoying and think he dropped in quality in the last decade >but there are competently designed guys in reincarnation (Dito, Cent and Eve can't save a franchise)Fuck
>>25034016You know that that ed is worse than you thought when it's 2020 and see that no one buys Charlie's merch, but Zephel's is always sold out.
>>25047352>find yoko taro annoying and think he dropped in quality in the last decadeWhy?
>>25041288>take more time and effortAnd thus the mobage boom
>>25047745He got too popular with Automata so now he's shit.
>>25047836Oh. Contrarian bullshit.
>>25047745Automata was very different from his previous works when it comes to the "message"/story. The previous games had pretty much in-your-face messages you could get through gameplay (like Drakengard and the reason behind violence) and Replicant was a play on common tropes in the jrpg genre and had its cheesy references. Not saying that Replicant had a simple story but it was very heartfelt and got to the point + you could enjoy digging for more info, everything revolved around the idea "are we actually doing the right thing?". Automata had some much more convoluted plot elements and felt like a huge ramble and a heap of ideas thrown together. Like, he references some concepts from Beauvoir's work (the three women in love), but does a cringy take on her philosophy where I've even seen fans do huge mental gymnastics to interpret it positively. Same with the other philosophy references, it's like they followed some rule of cool but wanted to be a bit deep. A lot of fans blame the change in tone on his co-writers for the game changing as one of the writers left the series before Automata to write novels.Also him repeatedly expressing his dislike for hot guys. And spewing bullshit on twitter.
>>25048180>Also him repeatedly expressing his dislike for hot guys.Is he bitter?
>>25048180>repeatedly expressing his dislike for hot guysI remember reading that he actually dislikes 9s. Well, in any case he got his "punishment" - he is working on braindead generic gacha now.
>>25048345It might be jokes, but it's a boring running gag and he doesn't like putting pretty guys in his games as much as ugly ones.He always says how all ikemen should die already, and when he worked on FFXIV collab he said he takes solace in the people who play ikemen characters being ugly loser nerds, kek.
>>25048345>>25048453He's just shitposting.
>>25048180Of he didn't like hot guys he shouldn't have made brother nier, 9S, and the twins
>>25048510Gotta have some in your game if you want maximum appeal. Just one or two and you'll avoid being criticised as having no serious merit to your game/story due to a single gender cast.>>25048345Yoko Taro is known to be a master shitposter. He gets away with being weird and saying borderline rude/crazy stuff all the time because he's branded as a weird guy who says wacky things. So stuff like >>25048544 is, in all likelihood, not meant to be taken seriously.
>>25048464>XIV etc.Oh wow, was that in a tweet or something? I know he joked about burning the servers down. All the same, I think his shitposts are interesting. It's like, he's big and famous, how far can he take this?
>>25048510Only the twins look good out of these.>>25048613Those may be shitposts, but he'd rather have characters like Octa or Decad or the blind priest if directors weren't pushing him for some omnipandering, kek. That's why we get some weird compromise with kid nier's awful FF-reject haircut and 9S's outfit which was a crime against fashion and had shorts that are too long.
>>25048730Nah, that was in a livestream, it was around or during TGS because he mentioned the booth babes.
>>25048509Some of my favourite yoko taro content is the interviews for Sinoalice where he was blatantly saying the girls are cute so he thinks they will sell well.
>>25048730How long until someone gets offended
>>25048740>9S's outfitI thought it was cute.>shorts that are too long.Definitely agree with you there
>>25031095I definitely am, Mitsuki a CUTE.
>>25051946Mitsuki about protag>This junior is troublesome, but still okay.He's going to be tsundere. I can tell.
>>25051946Beautiful taste anon, I'm still deciding between him, Kai and Suzu
>>25052147what is this? An otome game for boys?
>>25051946>>25052147Getting strong Tokyo Ghoul vibes...>>25052308>Sui Ishida Oh shit. So he's going down the path of Otome degeneracy?
>>25048544>riajuu EXPLODEfactually correct
>>25052389MC is a girl crossdressing as a boy so no? I think?>Tamasaka is an opera troupe consisting only of men, who also play women. The troupe owns the Univers Opera School, which raises actors while putting on performances. Every performance invites the audience to an overwhelmingly flashy world and never fails to keep their attention.>The talented students of the hard-to-enter school are broken up into four classes to study theater, as well as compete for the title of Top Class at Univers.>The protagonist, Kisa Tachibana, who had given up on a life of theater, receives special permission to attend Univers Opera School following a certain event as long as she fulfils two conditions.>One of those conditions is to star in the final performance at the end of the year.>The other is to hide the fact that she is a woman…To make her dreams come true, and to help her pupils, the protagonist will deepen her bonds with the classmates that become her “cogs.”>What future awaits the protagonist after spending the year with her classmates…?>>25052432Still waiting for that final confirmation that it's Otome but it's a Broccoli project so there's that.
>>25052147Mitsuki and Kai seem bestHideyoshi best Ishida boy though
>>25052147These boys are ugly as shit, especially top left and top right
>>25054021Top right is hideous yes but Fumi and the rest are cute. Get better taste.
why is tokyo 24-ku so expensive fuck
>>25054578someone's uploaded it on anime-sharing if you don't feel like paying
>>25052147>CV: Uchida YuumaOk he's mine.
>>25052147Silver-haired twinks are the best. The Kaworu meme is real
one of the most surprising things is (also I don;t know much about otome games or anything in general) that diabolik lovers doesn't have an official english release despite it's solid popularity. Just a search on youtube has a good bit of vids above a dozen million views or higher.
>>25054896you'd have to be a mad man to try to localize it the west and sell it to its target demographic
>>25054912Explain why to someone who hasn't gotten around to playing it and so knows nothing about it (me)
>>25054896because their publisher rejet, best otome game company in nippon, knows not to give anything to stupid fat gaijin eop.
>>25054930The entire gimmick of the game is that the boys are sadists and abuse MC. Imagine trying to sell that to teen girls when sjws are around.
>>25054970>The entire gimmick of the game is that the boys are sadists and abuse MC.Sounds hot
>>25054896Rejet hates gaijin piggu if I remember right and also generally the only console otome games that get localised are the ones that can be marketed on having action or story (ie. they can theoretically be marketed to men), no one bothers with the shit where the main appeal is romance/cute boys. See how Aksys market their otome titles as adventures (with romance).
tfw no game were you can date a poo prince and he feeds you curry
>>25054930The whole series is about a teenage girl getting emotionally abused, held captive, beaten, raped, and killed depending on the ending, there's no way it would go over well. However despite sjws I think it would still be popular, we have our fair share of dumb brainless BPD whores here too who would love that shit
>>25055000Sucks to be a gaijin otaku. Especially a female one.
>>25054930it more or less panders to rape fantasies and abusive relationships, with teen girls as the main demographic focus.I think it would sell well enough in the west, but bringing it over could potentially ruin your localization company via backlash. Or even worse, it could bring unwanted attention to VNs and initiate an attempt to "crack down" on them.
>>25055031>>25055057I-is it actually good? Or trash?
>>25054912I don't think the crowd that complains about that kind of thing cares about console otome releases. It seems too niche. Even the show itself I don't think there were many people sincerely raging at it rather than being confused at the absurd fetish content.
>>25055091Are you a brainless BPD whore? Then you'd love it
>>25055130But BPD whores do the abusing
>>25055091its entertaining. There's a mini-anime that you can watch to judge for yourself.I think you'd have to have incredibly low self-esteem to enjoy it on a self-insert basis (which is why it tends to be so popular with women)
>>25055091Pretty bad. It had structure problems thanks to the game splitting up the scenes in drama cd fashion. The boys are annoying more often than sexy and the sadism gimmick is wasted on a game that isn't r18.
>>25055150They abuse themselves
>>25055176And everyone around them.
Are there any actually good games aimed at mesubuta
Some voice samples are available for Lkyt now.http://pa-rade.jp/lkyt/character.html
>>25054676If I don't buy it, who will..?
>>25055194There's quite a difference between someone who is emotionally unstable and self-destructs hurting themselves and others rather than someone who deliberately harms others
>>25055246>t.BPD whoreCluster B's aren't even human.
>>25054814dankira had a really good one (rip)
>>25055220MC's voice, as well as Takeru's and Towa's are all quite good.
Why is he so FAT
>>25055091It's a trainwreck, so it is technically entertaining.>>25055220I like Ango's voice the best, no contest.
>>25055234Crazed nip fujos who buy multiple copies to get every tokuten CD or whatever don't worry about it
>>25055194Once discovered some girl that used to obsessively cling on and harass me in school was diagnosed with BPD as an adult. Wasn't surprised in the slightest.
>>25055377>pic relatedFUCKIN KEK
>>25055377Their designs remind me of the worst VK era when the Gazette got popular and the movement died.
>>25054896An official Ken ga Kimi localization would have saved Rejet
>>25054912not really, there's far more questionable content released rejet doesn't like gaijins is all>>25054948didn't they get scammed by chinks a while ago?
>>25055374don't fucking talk about my future husband like that
>>25055666Congratulations Lucifer, I will buy a treadmill as the wedding gift so he can work on slimming down those fucking moobies.
>>25055091The 1st CD series is its peak
How do we revive Otome? I want to be pandered to constantly like haremfags.
why does rejet hate the west?
>>25056214have you taken a look at it recently?
>>25056214Fuck you thieving whito piggu, you destroyed rejet and the industry by looking at the CD cover someone pirated>>25056231Ken ga Kimi is still only in jpn and cn
>>25056214At a conference they once blamed their falling sales on overseas piracy and not the fact that they've been rehashing the same tired shit that no one wants to buy anymore.
> overseas piracy It's funny how westerners get blamed for that, when they almost ways take it from chinese pirates, who seem to go unnoticed
>>25056292>>25056295>>25056318is there anything stopping them from releasing shit in the west? I mean, nintendo has collar malice and I'm sure another big japanese company like sony with the ps4 and it's influence in western culture would be a good place to release shit.
i mean china is technically overseas
>>25056397Rejet doesn't agree, because they are working with china and localizing their shit in cn
most piracy of untranslated japanese shit has got to be from elsewhere in asia, hardly any westerners can read japanese
>>25055378You should realize by now that this industry is quite fucking bad and definitely can need whatever money it gets.>>25055234Love you.
>>25056295I thought rejet was the best
>>25055965It's dead forever anon
>>25055965appeal to trap lovers
>still pretending that rejet's Otome game department isn't deadCome on guys, look at reality. Why would they go overseas when they're not even releasing games in Japan?
>>25056386those are otomate/idea factory games and they don't hate american money. rejet hasn't budged on their stance for years, if you really want to read diabolishit the first game has a fan vita translation and many web translations, its in very easy japanese to boot so you can just do the bare minimum of learning and still understand.
>>25056644>japan and carspretty good still>japan and gamesthey did pretty fucking good, I'm sure they can influence other markets with great potential>japan and musickpop is more popular and considered more "hip" for the entire world. Jpop stays homogenized and is a failure for japan cultural influence>japan and comics and even anime>american comics are fucking dyingcan't even take over a dead market with massive potential to the point that they resort to pirating from websites instead of an app or official site that could've been established much earlier>japan and fax machinesthe absolute state of japanese companies
>>25054578It's relatively long, longer than Mebiusline I think (Taiga and Shirasu basically have two routes each). Whether or not it's worth it depends if you're into the politics/social commentary stuff or not because that's like 80% of the game and if it doesn't click with you some routes will probably be extremely dull.
>>25056968Problem with them is that they’re happy staying self-contained. Their market is big enough to keep themselves sustained and by expanding to the outside they’d have to adapt. And if there’s one thing nips hate, it’s “change”.
>>25055217I posted about them a couple of threads ago, but agony/禁飼育 has some good games where the protagonist is either retarded/a complete pushover/both and gets molested and threatened by an older guy who really wants to fuck her. I started with 蛇のシンデレラ, which had some nice H-scenes and a good suspenseful story. Though, 魔女の処刑日 probably has the most vile main boy out of everything from them I've read so far. I both want to beat him up for being such a sniveling smug cunt but it's fun to see him pull some absolutely ridiculous shit like shoving a carrot up MC-chan's ass and then eating it or feeding her a cum jar. The story and side characters in these are also quite nice in general. Most of my problems with the group's games has to do with the protagonist being almost frustratingly retarded at times or the pacing being too fast, but I enjoyed what I've seen so far regardless. You might have to look past the art though; the art's not anywhere near the shiny professional quality you get from games by professional companies.
>>25056318True. Otomedream is, perhaps, the biggest pirate forum out there and it has never been taken down by nips. Taking it down would solve like 99% of their problems.
>>25056644>bare minimum of learning and still understand.That’s still too much. I have an IQ of 10.
>>25057086>OtomedreamDoes anyone visit that garbage site when they got mad over non-chink users and started banning them even if they paid for premium pass to get their content? They stole their money shamelessly and blamed them all for pirating the content THEY pirated kekChinks are pigs.
>>25057096IQ of 5 representative here, you can just learn kana and use years of your weeb listening experience. Even that will be helpful enough
>>25057330naruhodo naruhodo...I will try it out
>>25057281Do they seriously have premium passes for pirated content?
>>25056968a lot of japanese companies and schools still use windows xp
>>25057281I remember. That was the incident that triggered chinks so much that they turned Otomedream into Otomehell. >>25057474They do have premium passes. You can avoid the sign up providing a reason to be part of the forum if you contact a mod and pay a certain amount. Well, at least that is how it worked last time I visited that shitsite. Maybe, now they're asking for reasons exclusively written in chinknese. A lot of rules changed when the mass ban took place. They never recovered. I bet their asses still hurt.
>>25057281Chinks should be eradicated from the Earth
>>25057641I know about the massive bans they performed to non-chinks, but what was the reason? I never knew. I'm not that old in the otome world.
>>25057052I love their love of old men, but hate all the dark shit. I've only played Kono Yo de Mottomo Zankoku na Kiss and Kinanaki no Mori, which aren't that sexual.I just want vanilla oyajis, even the Kane no Tame devs seem to love dark shit more than vanilla.
>>25057052I'm going to DeepL translate that shit and you can't stop me, blog
Speaking of DeepL, is it possible to auto-copy buffer text into it? I only managed to do it by manually copying or using double ctrl-c.
>>25058077Yesvnfags in /vg/ should have the required browser extension
>>25058132I'll look there, thanks. I wanted it not for browser, but for standalone DeepL, in setup like this - text is copied from game to buffer with VNR, then this text is automatically send to DeepL. So far, I made AutoHotKey script so I can paste text in DeepL with one click, but I still want to eliminate manual movements all together.
>>25058289*excluding the women
Everyone in this thread would love to suck 2D cock so can we just be nakamas, eh?
I need a 2d boyfriend so fucking badly
>>25057700OK. I'm going to take the opportunity, so anyone who doesn't know about it can read the full story. It's fantastic and full of lolgic, so take a cup of tea and enjoy it.This happened in 2009/2010 approx.It all started with an ugly, sad, landwhale chink with a high rank on OD (I think she was a mod) who also happened to have a LJ blog in which she sold some tokuten for otomefags. This chink joined many public and secret/private groups that were popular on the platform back then to sell the merchandise she didn't want. You know, in those years Neromance series got their anime adaptation and Hakuoki series was a new phenomenon and everyone wanted the new releases. One day, that sad chink joined a group where otomefags shared games they ripped themselves with people who were willing to share other games in exchange. In that group, the chink found some download links for a game that was recently shared on OD and you can imagine what she thought: she came to the brilliant conclusion that some users from LJ were leaking the pirated content chinks had on OD. From that very moment, this chink started PMing all users from that group and spamming their blogs with messages like 'I have a very high rank in that forum you get the games from, so take down your links or I'll ban you there'. Of course, a lot of users didn't have any idea about what the fuck this stalker was talking about and they just ignored her. The stalking became worse with time and she later PMed the same people with their IPs (remember that some LJ groups showed them by default) and that she was going to ban them from OD in a few more days. There were some users who concluded that this chink was from OD and they asked her if she was from there by any chance, and they tried to explain to her that they ripped their own games. The chink told them not to play fools and that if they owned the games they should prove her wrong by posting photos. Just to make her STFU, some users took photos, but there were users who refused because her attitude was really nasty up to that point. The chink, butthurt, insisted that she was going to make all people from otome groups get banned just because there were suspicious people who were sharing games from OD on LJ and didn't want to admit it.It was a fact that she didn't have any proof, but she kept stalking until she got some IPs that coincided with the IPs of user accounts registered on OD (she lurked many, many secret groups until she got what she needed, not only the specific one where she found the links). Aside from her 'social engineering', she also created some fake accounts (helped by chink friends) and she joined otome groups and filled them with direct links to games that you could download without registering on OD. They did it to sum more 'proofs' so leonnadesiko (owner of OD) could perform herself a mass ban of every foreigner IP. Some LJ otomefags noticed what the chink was doing and there was a particular one who wrote her in chinknese (using Google Translator) asking her to stop her circus. Nobody expected that the use of Google Translator was going to trigger chinks so much they took that as a proof that the translator was the reason why they got so many westerns in their forum (it still blows my mind, chinks didn't know Google was decent enough to create a sentence in their shitty language).Once the chink had all the proofs and the story she wanted to tell leonnadesiko she actually made the mass ban possible. What happened next was a massive complaint from non-involved people in the drama who lost their recently bought account through premium pass. Some users paid for the 80USD pass (which was the most expensive back then) and never got their money back. All they got was a reply by leonnadesiko telling them : 'You won't be granted access again until you and your friend delete your sites and files and show me. I don't want a promise by mouth only'.You can imagine that a lot of people who never knew about the LJ incident or who weren't even involved got the same fucking reply by the bitch. OD was issued by PayPal for fraud, but who cares, they're chinks. They opened a new acc with a new name and kept giving passes to bew members anyway, but they became anal with their registering system thanks to the incident on LJ.That's the story, anon. I hope you find it... insteresting? lol>>25057662God. I second this.
>>25058428>Junta Matsushima is bored with a high school life, being in an all boys school means there’s no excitement of having girls around and having a love life. His friend, Anri Seisen, recommends him to play otome games (something Anri been obssessed with lately). After playing a game, he finds out his classmate, Wataru Katsuragi, is the spitting image of one of the romanceable characters and decides to try to romance him IRL as a way to kill time. Eventually the moment he had been waiting for came when Wataru confesses his love for him, wanting to end the joke/prank Junta tries to turn him down by saying “We’re both dudes” and to his surprise Wataru responds with “When it comes to love, gender doesn’t matter”. Junta realizes he has done something that can’t be taken back and he is, in turn, tormented by Wataru’s love…wew lads...
>>25058610It's really good so far
>>25058576What’s your type?
>>25058576This, but I'll even settle for a cute 2D girlfriend
>>25058596>80USD passThe hell? It was informative, thanks.
>>25058665I can't post it it's too embarrassing
>>25058638pleas share your impressions after you finish and if its worth buying I hope its a pure love story
>>25058819Everyone is anonymous here.
>>25058824Personally I've already gotten my worth out of it, even though I basically only bought it for the good ending, it was on sale and Wataru hits literally every single one of my strike zones except glasses
>>25058596>Nobody expected that the use of Google Translator was going to trigger chinks so much they took that as a proof that the translator was the reason why they got so many westerns in their forum (it still blows my mind, chinks didn't know Google was decent enough to create a sentence in their shitty language).Kek. Filthy chinks are a fucking mess.>80USDThat's absurd, people actually paid for that shit?
>>25058819Well now that you said that you HAVE to share
>>25058756>>25059015The most expensive pass granted access to the most recent posts which meant that you were going to be able to download the recently released games as soon as you obtained the account.Normal users need to post for a long time and contribute to the community to obtain goddamned Zeny, which is the virtual coin they use to 'open' locked threads. You also need to post a lot to obtain certain rank to be able to see some hidden posts. The best premium pass gave you like 10000 Zeny + Rank 10 instantly. Of course there were people who happily paid $80USD for all the games they could obtain there instead of paying for the real thing.
>>25059111>Monetizing pirated releasesI don't know why, but that somehow feels ilegal
>>25059167Chinks have no honor. They excuse themselves saying that since they offer their virtual server to users that upload their games, they need to pay a high amount monthly, and they can only bear the costs through 'donations' aka premium passes lmao
>>25059167People do similar things with scanlations, patreon, ad money etc
>>25048613>Just one or two and you'll avoid being criticised as having no serious merit to your game/story due to a single gender cast.Worked well for shounen manga.
>>25052147The ginger makes me think of toku for some reason
>>25055524It was probably their best received game, so it would do them a lot of good.
>>25059327Shounen usually have a token female character
>>25059167A couple of years ago a 'translator', who claimed to be from China, was pretty active in english and russian speaking otome communities. She started shitton of projects including Shingakkou patch right away.In fact, her translations were barely edited MTL tier, and in order to get access to the patch (most of the games were rejet games), you needed to make a 'voluntary $40 donation' she claimed she needed the money for her utilities, internet, etc; and to pay to her programmers and translators.
>>25059494I thiink I know who you're talking about. name escapes me though. I think she was a huge dmmdfag.
>>25057828I'm usually a sucker for darker stories, but I understand your need for oyajis being cute. I think they have cute oyajis without any dark shit in some of their shorter free games, SAGO has a nice and clean romance between a loli and a professor. There are some dark scenes if you read past the first ending, but 枯れぬ黒薔薇 has a gap-moe professor and cute interactions between him and the protagonist. This one in particular felt like the protagonist was going to jump onto the guy's dick at any moment, an unusually assertive MC-chan. The writer can really do some pleasant romance/slice of life when they want to, just that it almost always turns dark halfway through.
>>25058596Fuck. I have a friend who was part of otomedream 10 years ago. She never paid for a pass, but got banned from one day to another. She used to download some BsLog issues from there. The newest issues were shared there the same day it came out. It looked like a gold mine. Now I know is shit.
>>25059494Was this the person that ran a tumblr to try and get people to donate scripts?
>>25059604She's deleted her page where she used to upload the releases but these are her projects. I don't think there's everything here though.https://vndb.org/p6094>>25059673I don't think she had a tumblr
A lot of you agree that MC having a personality will lead companies to lose buyers, but what do you think about voiced MCs? Personally, I would like them having voice. It doesn't interfer in the selfinsertion process, imo.
>>25061759hardcore self inserters always turn them off so its a massive waste of money unless you manage to get shippers/bifags to buy lots of the game.
>>25061759I can literally self insert as anyone so it wouldn't bother me as long as it's not super obnoxious
>>25061917This. I don’t get how people are picky. Maybe I just hate myself enough that I can self-insert as literally anyone that isn’t me
>>25061987>Maybe I just hate myself enough that I can self-insert as literally anyone that isn’t meAnon, I see that you're trying to self insert as LITERALLY ME, but please stop, you're getting too into the role..
>>25059434That's what I mean. Just have a cute manager character so the audience doesn't think they're too gay, or a handful of pretty girls in a battle shounen that don't really do much so people can't say they don't exist in that world
>>25061759If the game has no translations, the heroine having a voice actually helps to figure out what the fuck she's saying.But I don't feel any particular way about that, I just want the guys to say my name
>>25062080They don't give a flying fuck about criticism, look at kirara manga, they are all little girls so that yurifags don't feel insecure amd intimidated by a single male characters. Same thing with some extreme fujos, there have been people going around twitter messaging twisted wonderland fanartists that they shouldn't draw female OCs. Who has the energy for that?Pic related, hot lady from an upcoming game with a ton of cute guys.
>>25058596This reminds me of that screenshot story about the scamartist chinks in the steel industry someone shared in /a/ once. Honestly fuck them.
Mahoyaku is still alive? I'm expecting it to fare like Dankira
Any otome with mechs in them?
>100% game>feel emptygames for this feel?im quoting myself
>>25068328Tokimemo 3. Feel your empty holes by being a slut
>>25067073Yuukyuu no Tierblade has them I think
>>25063344They just announced it releases in 4 days, sweet
people shitting chinks and japan are eating their shit, arknights, azur lane, genshin impact etc.. kek based china making brtter gachad games than japan
>>25070192I wish I could find a historical chinese otome game with long-haired men..
>>25070192Are you having a stroke? And only Arknights (has cute guys) makes money in Japan out of these, not to mention Azur Lane is loli coomer bait.
>>25070283Not "historical", but maybe this? https://apps.qoo-app.com/en/app/13232It's quite literally entirely in chinese though
>>25058738Not even gay, but I'd rather settle for 2D gf than 3DPD men
>>25066691Going by fanart, it seems to be about 10 times as popular as dankira
>>25070377shota coomer bait games when?
>>25066691Its only been performing better since release so chances are it's fine.
>>25071388langmaor games from the 2000s
>>25070770Just warning you that Yurika is mine
>>25070377Azur Lane has plenty of big tittied beauties and they’re usually the popular ones. But yes, I wont deny it’s loli coomer bait. With me being the one baited.
>>25069374>Jew ElementsNot sure if want.
>>25069374They look like the fags from Enstars. Redhead is cute.
>>25058596this must be a mental illness of some sort
>>25058824Judging by the sample CGs and some tweets I have seen I really don’t think it’s going to be a pure love story.
>>25052147Is bottom right a childhood friend or sibling? But I like the red haired one
>>25070192Thank goodness China will never make outright BL games because homosexuality is too degenerate for them to publicly profit off of. My hobby is safe until the CCP is overthrown.
>>25075483>they look like fagsis that a bad thing?
>>25066691It's got that Idolish Seven writer and all their shit taste fans
>>25076603>Is bottom right a childhood friend or sibling?It doesn't say anything about him being either.>I want to be of help if you have any trouble>He's someone I can always talk to about anythingKisa does have a female childhood friend though. Not sure how she plays into the narrative.
>>25079043I think they wrote Kintouka which I liked. But they also were head writer on Si-Nis-Kanto which I couldn't get through even one route of because the main character was so retarded. I've said it here before but it felt like I was watching a child grooming PSA.
>>25079102Can you read runes? Could you TL the rest please?
Thanks again to anon who told about deepl extension. Translation is now fully automated and even somehow worked with VNR so I didn't have to fish out correct text thread with textextractor. Info is in the latest /vn/ general in vg.
People flaunting machine translations is the weirdest flex
>>25079501How is that anon 'flaunting'?
>>25079501Take your meds
>>25079462What vn is picrel?
>>25079671Shingakkou -Noli me tangere-I would highly recommend it.
>>25079462Just be advised that DeepL is also prone to giving gibberish translations and wrong interpretations sometimes.>>25079501I think it's more like anon is desperate and thanking people who mentioned it as a potential solution if they aren't able to escape Dekinai-chan's whispers. Everyone's aware that actually learning the language is the superior solution.
>>25079671not recognizing shingakkou is bad enough but you're unable to look it up when the title is in the pic, half of it in the easiest kanji possible, and half of it in latin script?
>>25079860Simple kanji are still alien moonrunes to people who can't read any kanji.
>>25055220Blond guy pronounces "s" weirdly. I don't like it.
>>25080158And googling the part in roman alphabet + vn is too hard when your IQ is lower than room temp
>>25080272That's what happens when you let machine-translating EOPs feel welcome, it opens the gates to all sorts of retards
>>25070192China is cancer and you'd know that if your country had a commercial agreement with them. Feel blessed if you have never had to deal with their hair based onions sauce rich in heavy metals, condensed milk high in melanin, batteries made out of their own recycled shit and falsified products from top brands. Their games are ripoffs of Korean, Japanese or American deliveries.Modern chinks can't do original quality stuff.
>>25080272Nothing comes up when you put in -Noli me tangere- visual novel retard
>>25080439What is VNDB then? Some sort of collective fever dream?
Faggots learn a few Kanji and think they’re still not an EOPThe absolute state
Visual novel where EOPs and JOPs have hate sex when
>>25080471I mean if that anon couldn’t recognise bloody Shingakkou then they’re obviously a newshit who doesn’t know VNDB. It’s not rocket science.
>>25080439This is bait.
>>25079462This is only going to harm you in the long run, anon
>>25080419Don't forget gutter oil!
>>25080550Why do you even need to ask that question?
>>25080550Not only that, but thinking that it's "good enough" even though you won't be able to tell when it's giving you the wrong idea about characters and plot events. You could end up with a misinformed impression compared to someone who read the original.It's better to work and improve yourself than rely on imperfect algorithms. No matter how good DeepL and others like it get, they will never really understand the vagueness and nuances of natural language.
Mtl shouldn't be encouraged but I dont want blog to end up like the other vn general where if your jp isn't good enough to read muramasa no dictionary youre an eop
>>25079438all of these chinese games have had a few shota characters (the one from mahjong soul is really good), but I'm still waiting for the game where the get a big focus.Touken Ranbu has been the closest, and would be fine if the gameplay wasn't horribly outdated.
>>25080671I thought you were saying that there was a difficult vn called "muramasa no dictionary" and it fucked me up
>>25080663This is the main problem. Trying to discuss anything with people who have read machine translations is tedious because at best they have a shallow understanding of the characters and plot, and at worse they completely misunderstood everything
>>25080550They'll try to stab you at night unless you can memorize every kanji in the game. Look at this thread, half of anon's are still dealing with PTSD and other mental illnesses related to that
>>25080663Tangentially related but is muramasa worth it if you don't care about cute girls? A lot of male targeted VNs that get recommended on the story I've found difficult to get into because the girls and wish fulfillment pandering are the actual appeal and if it's not targeted at you there's not much there even if the story is interesting.
>>25080868meant to reply to >>25080671
>>25080790Where are you even discussing plot with people? Surely its not /blog/ since we only shitpost here.
I literally spent 5 years of my life mastering the nihon's graceful language..you can't play the same games as me.. because you won't understand the plot..

>>25080868theres like only one anon here who read muramasa. heard from several different anons if you like hanachirasu you'll like muramasa, if you dont dont bother. warning hanachirasu is edgy as fuck.
>3+ years of memorizing moonrunes>Taishou Mebiusline is still too much of a challenge to read>meanwhile slavchads can read it at ease
>>25081074>>25081210This and Chiaki-sama
>>25081138Thank you wonderful anon, Suzu seems to definitely be my favorite for now.
>>25058819What did she mean by this
>>25081498At least you didn't spend year learning Japanese incorrectly, where you can "read" entire sentences but not know why they actually mean
>>25081074Corda series has a lot of god tier boys: Aoi, Ryo, Leiji, Chiaki... But I agree, Len is the basedest.
>>25081589Sometimes I wonder just how autistic does one need to be to even consider starting learning a category V language just so they could consume mediocre quality media content.
>>25081650I wish I had used a few brain cells to take Japanese classes when I was still in university, rather than start learning after graduating
>>25081650This is some next-level cope
>>25081650Based. Just wait for the autists to translate it for you
>>25081650>I'm not allowed to like things enough to devote 10-30 min a day studying to enjoy my hobbies more because that's cringe bro I don't wanna be some kind of weeaboo
>>25076603>>25079102But it literally says “childhood friend who knows the secret”.
>>25081498I read Mebius (fairly slowly with significant dictionary help) after like a year and a half of reading raw VNs, it's not that hard. A lot of words come up again and again so you end up memorising them along the way.
>>25081735It is kinda cringe
>actually studying>not just forcing yourself through raw VNs with a dictionary until you accidentally learn how to read for real
>>25081650It's not autism to be passionate about wanting to enjoy something in the best way possible. And even if you learn Japanese primarily to enjoy "mediocre quality media content", you can translate that into a personal asset in your real-world career.
>>25081811How is it a waste of time when I had fun?
>>25081741What does the black text around the others say?
>>25081826Don't bite the bait, anon
>>25081808It's pretty much how children learn, just much more inefficient since our brains slow down as we grow up. Listening to hundreds and thousands of hours of anime and dialogue gives you a natural sense of how the language flows; reading it lets you memorize and associate words to sounds.
>>25081808That's exhausting. Just stick with the translated ones until someone does the untranslated ones for you.
I'm going to learn Japanese to become a shoujo mangaka, it's not a waste of time
>>25081138>nintendo switchGod damn it.
>>25081887What's your premise anon
>>25081856>sis don't listen to them sis... it's just bait... no one could actually think that we're autistic... right...?
What's with all the crossboarding normalfag retards here lately?
>>25081609>AoiExcellent taste, anon. Aoi and Len have the best duet song in the entire series too. Their voices blend really well.
>>25081887Are you willing to work 18 hours a day with no weekends?
>>25081808>Did that 10 years ago with TMGS3feels good man
>>25081911My boyfriend locked me in the cage and I actually liked it!? My daily cage life
>>25081860I actually first started to really pick up Japanese (past genki 1 stuff) from listening to situation CDs and reading translations along with them. You have to listen to the Japanese track more closely than with subtitled anime for example to make sure you're keeping up with the translation and I ended up picking up basic spoken Japanese fairly fast.
Is anyone watching Koi x Producer?
>>25081779So is my husband but he's also cute and I would never have met him if it wasn't for djt's website, jisho, and ithvnr. And soon thanks to loomis, vilppu, and pirated patreon tutorials my husband will be taking 10 inch cocks in both holes. Let go of the normalfag world, embrace "cringe" and you can enjoy yourself.
>>25082020I am following it. /a/ hasn't get the hype for it tho. Threads there die in a few hours.
>>25081994Take all of my money already
>>25082023based if masterful falseflaggingcringe if unironic post
>>25082023Isn't it cuckoldry if you draw your husband getting fucked by other men?
>>25082068/a/ doesn't care about anything that isn't shonen or lolishit. I haven't played the game but I've been enjoying the anime so far, Haku a CUTE.
>>25082020Never played the game, but if former delinquent police senpai is not the winner it's shit and I'm dropping it.
>>25081963Best boys and best seiyuu. Miyano and Taniyama are great singers I listen to songs they have together in different games/anime. It's absolutely based that they're in UtaPri.
>>25082023Who's your husband?
>>25082211>>25082214>Haku aka former delinquent police senpaiExcellent taste my otomedachis
>>25082214Everybody is afraid of Victor winning the producerbowl. Victor and Haku are both best boys anyway. I'm not dropping it unless they follow Lucien's rooute. I can't stand Hirakawa's characters unless they're extreme ukes.
>>25082301>Hirakawa'sYou don't understand how quickly my face dropped as soon as I heard his voice come from the doctor. Fucking hell I hate his voice. It can ruin an entire character for me.
>>25080926>we only shitpost here.who genuinely believes this?
Only VAs I can't stand are Toriumi Kousuke and Ishida Akira.
>>25082370Hirakawa's superpower is making everyone hate his characters. I was already turned off by Lucien's design from the very moment I saw he uses suspenders in some illustrations from the game.
>>25082439>Ishida Akira.H-how dare you?
>>25082439Toriumi has destroyed many great BL manga characters. I will never got to like Yukimura (Warui series) after I listened to the drama CDs where he plays him. Fuck Toriumi.
>>25081855Bottom left: blunt divaBottom middle: reckless moodmakerBottom right: childhood friend who knows the secretCenter: the “cogwheel” that moves people’s heartsTop left: glamorously dancing Arc JeanneTop middle: taciturn Jack AceTop right: eccentric genius leader
>>25082439I can't stand Toriumi either. It's a shame that he somehow always gets the good characters. I also don't like Hirakawa, Namikawa, Kaji, Morikubo and Kakihara's voices. Especially Kakihara because he either sounds constipated or he has something stuck in his ass.If we're talking some of the based seiyuus though that would be Hosoya, Kondo Takashi, Miyano and Taniyama.
>>25082439Please explain what about kousuke's voice you can't stand. I've even seen japanese blogger say they don't want to hear him and I'm so confused. He's not my favorite but it's not bad either I want your perspective.
>>25082518God bless you and the other anon
I like Sakurai.
>>25082604It always sounds like he's doing a creepy villain voice to me even when he isn't.
>>25082518>>25082518Small addition:Guys who play female roles are referred to as Jeanne, for male roles it’s Jack. And the two lead actors are called Arc Jeanne/Jack Ace.
>>25082674He sounds like he's overacting his characters and, as this anon says >>25082549, as if he has something stuck in his ass that don't let him produce a clean, nice voice.I can't buy it when Cecil's fans say they love him because of his voice.
>>25082824I hope the mc has personality, seems like it's going in the right direction by naming her first of all. Even though you can change her first name
>>25042875It’s been set to private, along with their Diabolik Lovers uploads and some Seventh Heaven and Criminale tracks.Seventh Heaven isn’t even sexual IIRC so I wonder what’s up with that.
>>25082301Agree. Zen and Haku are top tier. Haku is more popular because western players can't deal with a fictional boy calling them idiots when they don't do a good job. Both of them are based I don't care if the anime follows any of their routes. I don't mind listening to Sugita or Ono's voice instead of Hirakawa's or Kakihara's.
>>25083251I have no idea what this game is but>western players can't deal with a fictional boy calling them idiots when they don't do a good jobthis makes you sound mental
>>25083384What? You don't enjoy getting called a useless baka by your 2d boss? I think you're the problem anon
>>25083251Sugita should do more ikemen roles, he's good.
>>25083384I just wanted to say they can't deal with tsunderes.
>>25083411Only if it's out of embarrassment
>>25083436>can't deal with tsunderesReminds me of the people that flipped out at Rai from Lamento even though he's vanilla as fuck
>>25083427It's almost a fixed rule that whenever he plays an ikemen, that character is the best automatically.>>25083436By 'they' you refer to those fans who call him patriarchal? I laugh every time.>>25083452The same happens with KoixPro fandom about Zen. Most of them haven't even played his route and just hate him because of his tsundereness.
>>25083760>patriarchalFucking kek. They would die if they knew about DiaLovers lmao
>Uchiyama Kouki will never be in an Otome VNThis must be the wrong timeline.
>>25075540Chinks are the personification of mental illnesses.
>>25086268He has a 1 note voice. It is an attractive one though, I will admit.
>>25086268Nips say he doesn't voice game characters because he's picky af irl.
>>25086632I mean, I'm glad for him he's so successful that he can be picky. Just sad I can't date his voice.
>>25086632>he's picky af irl.hot
>>25086653>>25086688He priorizes his acting career and then evaluates which character he would like to voice as a seiyuu. I don't think he is into otome; he only voices characters he feels comfy with.
>man with nice voice does 1-2 roles then vanishes off the face of the earthtohya...bro...why...
https://twitter.com/JASTBLUE/status/1288706993562071040As an EOP, I hate brainlets so much. We want the BL that is literally from the same company Mangagamer is already partnered with (Lykt, LuckyDog). Or just begging for Nitro Chiral title's that are already in the works. Can only hope more people will throw Shingakkou a bone or suggest stuff that hasn't been considered yet.
The game wont let me pick subaru first which triplet boy do I pick for the funniest route?
>>25088002I was tempted to post that here and complain about the people asking for shit like DMMD for the 50th time. It's already fucking translated, make way for literal never evers like Mebiusline for fuck's sake.
>>25088002Apparently Shingakkou license would be hard to get
>>25088143Yeah, I'm aware that the 2015 download version no longer has the voices. Licensing restrictions or whatnot. Publishers probably wouldn't want to take a risk on that now, especially when it may seem 'dated' to modern players.
>>25082439The funny thing is I used to love Toriumi's voice and eventually came to hate it while I used to hate Ishida's voice and came to love it.
>>25088190Kewl, wonder if teddy is gonna be shoved up my butt.
should I wait for room no.9's english version or just play it now..
>>25089752If your moon skills are good enough, just play it now. It's not particularly hard I think. If you're EOP it should be coming out this year, so not much of a wait.
>>25089873I can nip but I'm not sure if it's worth it to wait for uncensored dicks or not
>>25090010I think they did a good job with NTY!! so if you want real dicks it might be worth the wait then.
>>25086732>acting careerWait he does legit acting too? I had no idea. He’s ugly
>>25090010Just one more week anon
>>25090179It's probably because of that why he sticks to theatre acting and not doramas or movies unless it's anime or just a few game roles.
>>25090157>>25090310thanks guys I'm gonna wait then I think
>>25082549Hosoya can sound good but most roles he sounds kind of bored.
>>25044919Point taken. Though I guess Kakouton and Sousou are antagonists rather than villains, since the alliance they fight is arguably even worse than them.
>>25088002I think it's retarded too but from the perspective of an EOP it sorta makes sense cause most people there are probably BL casuals and aren't going to beg for games they never heard of. It's the same deal with EOP otome fans begging for dialovers, they probably don't even know what else to beg for. Of course that's their own fault for not doing research, but you get the idea.
>>25088184Do you have more info? What licence restrictions?
why are seme protags so rare FUCK
>Dead in only 10 monthsNot surprising since this one has worse gameplay compared to Yume100 and Akaseka. There is almost no advertising after it launched as well.>>25086732Voicing Neku in TWEWY is still a weird choice.
>>25094477なむあみだ仏っ！-蓮台 UTENA- is also dead again. I guess the anime failed to save it.
>>25094331They're mostly nothing but shitty porn, there's old games where you got a choice as to who tops but it seems like these days MC tops=nukige and MC bottoms=actual story. I guess Lkyt looks like it might have a story but it's yawn wafuu war shit so whatever.Honestly I'm fine with MC only bottoming in BL games as long as they don't make MC either a braindead doormat or alternately give him 'personality' but that personality is just being a shitty tsundere who hates sex and constantly screams to stop in all the ero scenes.
>>25081650no other nation has perfected the art of giving you vicarious icha icha like the nips, learning their language is a way of expressing gratitude
>>25096637They don't need any more of "I think I'm turning Japanese" weebs. You can actually buy their works and merch if you want to express gratitude.
>>25096897>"I think I'm turning Japanese" weebsThose people vocally hate animu media though and wank over how much they understand ~the culture~ instead.
help i replayed senge's route so many times it turned me into a japanese nationalist for real
>>25097083They criticize it but still overdose on anime media every day.
>>25094622オンエア！is also announcing they are dead today. What's happening in Japan?
>>25097161>not wanting your own twink helper who'd believe anything you say to himIf your only thoughts are how ugly and useless white piggus are, you still haven't played it enough
>>25096897don't be ridiculous, buying stuff is for simps
>>25098968I only buy stuff if the creators and writers are predominately male, otherwise I pirate. (you can't simp for guys)
>>25094622I didn't even realize there was an anime for that.
>>25099030How's your gigolos harem doing?
>>25098479I have this strange feeling that average dev aiming for (fate) grand (order) profits but when it's clear it isn't making much they just pull the plug instead of supporting longer and improving. How many of those discontinued mobages are repackaged into full priced games? Because it seems to be smart thing to do.
>>25099337cute boys, rip
>>25099030So you're a pick-me?
>>25099030You SIMD instead
>>25099337On one hand I celebrate every gachashit's death, on the other hand maybe it will only make everything worse for actual games too.
Think of all the cute boys who never got to celebrate their birthday because their game got cancelled before a full year
>>25094477>>25099337Trash gamesNow that Mahoyaku is performing better than Stand My Heroes how much longer until coly gets tired of it too
>>25093639https://vndb.org/r43186Nevermind, I'm retarded. The only actual thing I saw about the licensing was Haro's answer on her AskFM, so I don't have any legit sources. The Japanese developers made a voiceless digital release, but released a physical one year prior with full voice acting. Would appreciate it if anyone has more info. Is it licensing issues or simply gimping a digital release?
>>25103222Not an expert of any kind but there's no reason to gimp anything you release unless the estimated cost/revenue ratio is too low. I would guess that they banked on physical sales due to some sort of profit forecasting.JP doesn't do industry insight and tell-alls like the West does so it will probably remain a mystery forever.
Why not make digital release at all and force physical releases this way?

>>25105094How did you make it work?
>>25105248More like exciting. Though it felt more real than I excepted, so I got scared and woke up when I heard footsteps coming towards my room. I guess it's good that I'm so paranoid and didn't wait until it opened the door, I heard lucid dreams can generate absolutely fucked up monstrosities>>25105269google SSILD
>>25105493You think it's possible to have fictional characters in lucid dreams? I think I would only consider doing it for that. Fuck 3D.
>>25105656Pretty sure if human subconsciousness can generate the most scariest monsters then it can also generate the most sexiest boys specifically to (you)r tasteI heard even 2d graphics work in dreams
>husbando tulpasI've seen where this goes before and it's not good
>few days later>60 people all over the world died of sleep paralysis>just what could be the connection between them??7
>>25106076you don't die of sleep paralysis, you just spend a few hallucinating your worst fears while unable to move your body.
>>25105656Yes, I have and somehow it worksIt looks completely realistic while being 2D
>>25105060god I wish I were him
>>25106751Did you fuck your husbando
>>25105060Is this game any good by the way?
>>25107501Not sure, still playing through it. The setup is entertaining so far though. I'll write a review when I'm done. For me the main appeal is the MC though, he's kinda like a normal confident "ria-juu" type of guy, exactly the kind of guy I like to see get mindbroken, instead of the usual girly twink basedboy
>>25107501It's pretty short but I liked it a lot
>>25108709What the FUCK is that monstrosity of anatomy and proportion?

>>25111356autistic fujo go to anime cons and are very easy pickings, even for "guys" who go to anime cons
I don't like this discussion
Can we talk about games that have otome elements like Rune Factory? What is your favorite otome lite game

>>25111429SoS Trio of Towns was fun but whenever I tried to get back into it I forget what the fuck I was doing or what my routine was so the save's just gathering dust. I couldn't even decide who to marry all the boys were too cute, I think I was aiming for doctor guy the most though.What about "games that are not otome games but feel like otome games" like the first half of remember11 and fata morgana's fd?

why is there no game where I can play as a creepy stalker and take a bunch of pictures of cute boys
>>25111788Just play a MMO and look for people with characters you like while mashing the screenshot button
>>25111788I'd love it. We already have huge male idols casts, let us prey on them already!
>>25111804maybe when blue protocol comes out
>>25111788That sounds good. Or a game where you play as a female chikan (technically chijo? but that word doesn't have the same implications)
>>25111859What are the implications
>>25111486That was shit
>>25111598I like when we're active
>>25111920Why? Guys were hot.
>>25111948Gameplay was shit and only a handful of guys were hot
>>25111886痴漢 is a crime痴女 is just a promiscuous womanStill feels weird to call a woman 痴漢 though
>>25111969Everything is forgiven for Dimitri
>>25112039Dimitri awakened something in me. I don't think anything turned me on as hard as watching a kind and good nature guy break so hard he becomes borderline insane.
>>25112039Fair play. He was the sexiest, easily.
>>25111788Yanderedev go back to /v/
>>25111429RF4, so I'm really looking forward to RF5. I like FE3H and playing matchmaker, but I'm whatever about the avatar.
>>25111429RF4. I love my cute horse husband
>>25109535I kind of can't believe they really had his route end like that in a Cero B game.
>>25111969What are you? A Kaga apologist? I really hope they improve the maps for the next game and scrape the stupid calendar system.
what's a game everyone else seems to love that you can't stand?
>>25114017Not "can't stand" but collarmalice was zzz
>>25114017Nitro+chiral games. All of them.
I like the sensei look though.
>>25112039His house also has the best looking guys and best gay subtext, I'm sure Kurahana had the most fun with BL>>25114017Persona 5 if it counts, otherwise Mystic Messenger, but I can't stand those type of games so probably not fair, so maybe CxM? >>25114037The guys were so grating too
>>25108709This has a strong gay dude who has never seen a women naked vibes
Are they Ambassadors, civilians, or slaves?

I want more guys who are cute autistic spergs. Cute and made for bullying!
>>25114017Code realize. It felt like a shitty C rate Disney movie. The guys were bland, made no sense, had shitty designs and half of the VA sounded like they had dildos in their mouths and asses at the same time
>>25115111>half of the VA sounded like they had dildos in their mouths and asses at the same timeHirakawa, Morikubo and Kakihara: the dildosucker holy trinity of otome.
I love cute aspies!
>>25116626I don't think anyone who played more than 2 otome games unironically loves it
>>25117062I can understand (somehow) why nips like it and why it still popular in the Japanese otome fandom, but western loving it so much is cringy. It's like an otome game where you can date presidents was popular.
>>25115011There are good autists, but only if they're like pic related.
>>25117144There's nothing wrong with wanting to fuck historical figures especially if they look hot. However 80% of hakuoki boys are shit, the plot is boring, dramatic and you just need to play 1 route to play the entire game, because shit is repetetive as fuck and not due to historical reasons.
>>25117144I feel like Hakuouki is one of the most normalfag otome ever which could be part of appeal for those who aren't really into otome.
I liked Hakuoki, but I don't quite get the obsession people have with that particular title>>25118168And you can't even force skip because each route is considered unique because of pov>>25118261True, I actually do know people who aren't into otome who have read it
>>25118168>historical figuresI mean, they were chads and all, but they only look good in the game. I think we all wanted to fuck at least 1 when we saw the characters designs for the first time.But shit! The historical reference may be good, but who the hell could say, for example (going back to the presidents referenceto make ir credible in a western context):'I'm dating Lincoln-sama. He's so hot and nice, I love his beard so much I want to touch it, I love him. Everything is perfect with president-sama. However, I have the feeling that something bad may happen everytime we go to Ford's theatre. I think our love is in danger... どうしよう...'How do nips can think of characters who are inspired in real people as some kind of alternative entity at all. I think only autism can give us an answer.>80% of hakuoki boys are shit, the plot is boring, dramatic and you just need to play 1 route to play the entire game, because shit is repetetive as fuck and not due to historical reasons.Exactly. Kek. The shinsengumi didn't have much differences in routes.Only Chikage's route is different and, probably, because (I think) he wasn't inspired by a real life person.>>25118261This.All that aside. Chizuru is one of the most boring MCs in otome.Sorry for the doble post. I'm having some issues with my retarded browser.
Otomate is responsible for pushing a lot of cliches that people hate in otome so fuck them.
I want to save anime Edgar Alan Poe with my vagina by being the first woman to not die horribly in his lifetime, I want Nabakov to be an incredibly arrogant tsun who rants about how shit Dostoe is, I want to cuddle with the autist Lovecraft who is not racist in this universe. Why have they not tapped into author historical figure otome, why do they only use Herlock Sholmes Hekyl and Jyde and Alice#573895?
>>25118759If we're fucking weird fiction authors I'd rather have C.A. Smith.
>>25118759>Nabakov to be an incredibly arrogant tsun who rants about how shit Dostoe isHOT. Best boy? Who would voice him?Satoshi Hino in tsun-sama mode? Tatsu? What about the other authors?I want to play your game, anon. It could be 18R so Lovecraft to command Cthulhu to use its tentacles to turn MC on.

>>25099272They should realize that they're never going to get that money becuase they don't already have an established fanbase or an interesting story that goes beyond idol drama.>>25105094I managed half lucid once by chance, but I just couldn't imagine the details properly. It was like my concious mind was messing up what the subconcious can imagine with no effort.
I don't like idols.
>>25119332At this point I think most people just begrudgingly accept and try to live with them, like natural disasters.
>>25118931Hey, eroge protagonists are a little bit more diverse than that. You'd have:>proactive hardworking boy, wears a condom during sex, white-knights for the heroine, very boring like white bread>dokkan and hetare boy, impervious toward all romantic advances, probably doesn't even know what sex is>antisocial dick, intelligent nihilistic with a wicked sense of humor, might have magical chuuni powers >>25118989It's not a NTRge, dummy
>>25119332It's okay, they're being replaced by rappers
>>25119332Yeah, why won't they just switch to regular bands? Is it because it's harder to shill guys who don't have singing parts?
>>25119392I'm sorry, that was insensitive of me. They're a diverse people with a beautiful and rich culture.But they all have short, brown/black hair with that dumb little middle-bang.
>>25119332The only idolshit I like is UtaPri series.All the other series/games are dead to me and ignore them same way I ignore the coronacircus.
