I haven't played this yet, but it is the next Visual Novel game I am planning on playing thru after Songs of Araiah. I'm looking forward to it! ^__^

Ah I see... someone got bent out of shape and reported it... cute. Still its a visual novel, not an anime... BUT anyway... I'm really enjoying the replay of this.

I still check the general games forum. ;)

I played this almost exactly a year ago. I wasn't expecting much, but loved the game. I got the GE with Emi as my first play through. Then I worked on finishing all the routes. Each route is very different since they were written by different writers, but still, overall, they are all good. Emi is still my favorite.

After I finished Emi's I went through Hanako's. Shizune's (12 hours long!), and then Lily's.

Lily was by far my most favourite of the three, Hanako's is second, then Shizune, then Emi. I didn't do Rin's because after Lily's I didn't want to ruin the warm, sweet ending that I got with that lol... plus she really didn't interest me that much. :x

The one thing that irritated me through the whole series was the over-playing of his arrythmias... I have a medical background so I know when I'm reading plothooks over something that is based in facts, and unless he had some other serious heart condition that I missed somewhere, the way his arrythmias are described are most definitely not life-threatening... they wouldnt even need to be medicated. If they were severe, he'd be saddled with a pacemaker (I'm oversimplifying this a bit).

ANYWAY, that was about the only gripe I had with the series.


I would still pay to have a well-written yuri version of KS... not that this wasnt well-written.

I've done Emi and Hanako, but I haven't done any of the others since. Emi's route actually got me to start jogging on a regular basis.

I really need to start playing this again, but my computer is in for repairs, and I don't know when I'll be getting it back.

I just finished going thru all the routes. I think my most favorite character that I felt emotionally closest to is probably Hanako. Her ending was really, really sweet and beautiful.

I think the best story that gave me the warmest feeling throughout was Lilly's. It was also easily the most emotional for me as well. I loved the ending - easily the most suspenseful! ^__^

The most interesting/intriguing story to me was Rin's. I mean, with her personality, I just kept wondering if she was even capable of loving someone romantically as well as understanding someone else emotionally. Because of this, I felt it was the most intriguing story. I even "lol"ed in disbelief a couple of times as a result of Rin's denseness at times. Her ending though was only ok and still left me with some concerns to say the least...

Shizune was a great character who gave me some good laughs. I actually saw a lot of my "old" self in her, what with all her competitiveness to one-up people all the time and desire to challenge and beat people in games, lol.

I was a little saddened though that there was no actual Misha path, since personality-wise, she was probably the most attractive/charming character.

As for the music. It was just really awesome! From scene to scene, I thought the music set the mood almost, if not perfectly every time. My favorite track is the Friendship one. I also love the Generic Happy Music and Parity tracks.

Lastly, I found something interesting in the Katawa Shoujo Player Guide, there was a link for a small video called Lilly Goes to the Convenience Store - I thought it was a little strange, but a little amusing, especially near the end: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ovmtKSQTVU

At the moment I like Emi the best. Though I have only done hers and Shizune's routes all the way through so far. Im in the middle of Rin's route and liking it.

It was okay.

Didn't care much from Hanako's route as I find her rather boring outside of her interactions with Lily and Lily's sister and I felt like Rin's was a purple prose filled abomination but I loved Shizune's and quite enjoyed Lily's and Emi's routes. I liked the more slice of life type story that Shizune's told and I felt the drama was more natural in her's than it was in the other stories.

If you go to the official forums for KS, theres a lot of really well written fanfics, and by well-written I mean, of the quality you would find in the game (if not better).
