  1. I was reading Muramase but then I got distracted by Diablo 2 R and now FFXIV. It was alright so maybe I’ll get back to it but I’m not sure. I feel like I don’t have the attention span for VNs anymore and I used to read a lot of them.

  2. Just finished Raging loop and it was very good landed on its face pretty hard towards the end though. Any recommendations with the same sort of atmosphere?

  3. I just finished Hanahira again, just to test my nihongo again. I finished it in 4 days or 30-40 min each, I could read a ton of lines without having to check a word, but then sometimes I’d have to check one word per sentence every sentence.
    All in all I may have improved but still not by much.

    • What JLP are you anon? Just curious

      I haven’t read 9 nine but I thought Muramasa was way better than Baldr Sky

      My problem with Muramasa is that it has really good fucking ideas but some parts of it were a real slog and it was becoming too fucking goofy to take seriously. the whole plot of god and the space battles, with Chachamaru turning into a robot turkey, and some of the worst h-scenes and robots turning into humans with pussies really can be stupid the best moments of Muramasa was Kageaki trying to do what’s best in a fucked up situation and gradually becoming more broken but stronger in the process. I felt like the story wanted to be more complicated and longer than it should have because it wanted to be smart. If Muramasa was just one long route with some of the key ideas from other routes then it would have been amazing for me. It’s a 7/10 for me which sucks because I really was looking towards this one. The flashback samurai fight was kino btw

        This is the Law of Balance. The big parody to balance all serious business. Shitposting in VN format. Killing God, time travel for future expanded universe spinoffs, wall breaking jokes like in Hanachirasu. You need to ascend on higher level of existence to understand grand picture. It’s like re-reading EXTRA after MLA. Robot turkey looks funny, but only because she’s small and had no helm.

      • I knew it was hyped up before I read it so I expected a good VN and that’s what I got so I was satisfied it with it. A lot of the twists were fairly predictable after some foreshadowing, like Hikaru being in cahoots with Chachamaru, Chachamaru being a tsurugi and Kageaki being Hikaru’s dad. But there still were some moments that got me, mainly Kageaki overcoming the inability to kill Hikaru by using the Law of Balance as a loophole. The fights were really thick with samurai autism but they weirdly enjoyable, the 1v1 with Shishiku in Kanae’s route is probably my favourite.

    • If you don’t enjoy the first two parts then you probably won’t enjoy alternative, it’s really not that different from the rest as much as people say otherwise
