I once read a bunch of synopsys of ace attorneys cases.

Though I do have a soft spot for Sayori as well. :(

The writing in this game was very well-done.
But Natsuki had the charm. I, apparently, a glutton for punishment, and go for the hard-to-get's.
Yuri was too tall for my tastes. Loved the purple hair though.
Sayori was very easily relatable for me. That was basically me in my high school years.
I did feel bad for Monika, I literally had almost thirty save files, trying different combinations of poems, and answers and stuff to find out how to spend the weekend with her instead of the other girls.

Monika reminded me a lot of Nico from one-shot who is one of the characters i have grown the most emotionally attached to, but that probably worked against her rather than for her in this instance because my standards for that kind of character are higher than they otherwise would be.

I shelved the dragon VN for now and now i am playing umineko

After going through the game once, I went back and am now getting the first part of each girls route. Apparently, if you get all the scenes, you get a special ending. The sheer normalcy of that first part and the fluffy, yet troubled atmosphere made me nostalgic for Katawa Shoujo. Might have to play the Shizune route once I'm done with DDLC.

Natsuki had my heat after her first poem, not gonna lie. I laughed far too hard at that poem.

I find that observation subjectively insulting.
...
I'll see myself out now.


On an alternate, but slightly related note, I recently played through Katawa Shoujo, was wondering if any else around here did too as well.
It's also a freebie however it does have adult content for any who shy away from that.

I really liked it. In my opinion it was much better than most paid for games these days.

I said related, because in this game I liked Hanako, who came across like Yuri.

afaik there's a setting in the option menu that removes the sex scenes in katawa.

I played katawa and rin left a pretty big impression on me. In general i found that the characters somehow felt really real to me and I had an easy time empathizing/relating to them.

Yes and no. While the scenes themselves were replaced with images of fruit, some character sprites are still unaffected.

And same.
The story did a phenomenal job helping the player relate to the characters.
My only complaint with the game would be that I wish it was slightly easier to get into any characters arc.
gameplay spoiler/pseudo story spoiler:


I liked Rin better as a side character, but as I say that, I will acknowledge that she was easily the most memorable character as both a main and a side character (IMO). I think I'm biased simply because I finished Rin's story last. So I only knew her as a side character and she was full of wit. As a main character you see a comply different side of her.

For kicks and giggles:
In foresight, the order I wanted to complete the game in: Hanako, Rin, Lilly, Emi, Shizune
The order I actually completed the game in: Emi, Hanako, Shizune, Lilly, Rin
In hindsight, in order, I liked the stories of: Lilly, Emi, Rin, Hanako, and Shizune

I agree that the routes are too easy to get sidetracked onto. I think in the first act, it only takes one decision to get into Emi's route.
I ended up using a spoilerfree walkthrough to get the routes and endings I wanted.

From best to worst (IMO)
Shizune=Lilly>Hanako>Rin>Emi>Misha
I didn't particularly like Rin's route, due to the sense that we weren't communicating clearly, and thus it felt like taking advantage of each other, while clumsily guessing what the other wanted.
Shizune's route is my favorite, perhaps because it is the most down to earth route that has a minimum of trauma and dramatics.

My VN experience is limited to Long Live The Queen, an early build of The Weight of a Soul and realizing that even though Fate/Stay Night has launched a multimillion dollar franchise, you need an unofficial fan patch to play it in English, and even though it was published in the 90's, the game costs $200 because you can only find at auctions.

Idk why fandoms inspire so much hate in me even though I am a rabid fan of many things.
