Found my self thinking about this and had to come back and see if there was ever any more put up.
Wow! Fantastic! Bravo! Encore!
I think when I started this story people still weren't sure if it was suppose to be yuri or not and with the ending it looks like we are still in the same boat. I'd say call it yuri for he side couple. Doesn't matter that it didn't work out. Or "yuri side couple" if that's a tag.
I usually don't care if who ends up with who(as long as it's well written) but I really would have liked the main two to be together this time. They are both so great they made me break my own pattern.
I guess I can't be mad at the ending. I don't know the details about how this was sold and marketed. Don't know if it showed up in yuri magazines and the like so . . . (and if said magazines consider non romance relationships between girls yuri, etc) So I don't know that yuri was ever promised in anyway.
I will say though, the idea that open ended as a way to get around either sensors or just to make a story seem more deep is a reasoning I'd like to see F off.
Man I love fighting games. I wished everyone played them.
Not sure about the explanation of the terminology in this story sometimes. but yeah yeah. It's uh . . . pretty alright.
And people in this thread play Lili? These people have taste!
Also fact: When grandma offered Shima the third controller, I automatically saw a SNES controller in my mind.
Bomberman Party on PS1 had 5 player support with a multitap. It was no match, tho, for Bomberman Saturn which supported up to 10 players with two multi-taps.
I remember always wanting a multitap but honestly can't recall what system I was eyeing it for and what games I imagined playing with it. And I had most systems growing up. My siblings and I always wanted more co-op games.
On a somewhat unrelated note. A few years back I found myself wondering if there had ever been an anime about a dog. cough This chapter has me wondering that now too for . . . reasons.
Edit: Should probably try to clarify. I mean like a "normal" dog. Not those ones like Scooby Doo or what Disney often does to them where they can damn near talk and understand human conversation enough to give dating advice. (Sven helping Kristof propose in Frozen 2.) No offense but that depiction of animals often bugs me more then endears.
So, imo, anyone could write any character going through any experience- as long as they did enough research and talked to people who really had lived whatever you were writing about, to the point where you could come to understand and empathise with it yourself.. At least write it well enough nobody would pick up you were not writing from personal experince
I should hope so. Or my hopes of writing about The Time I was a Teenage Werewolf aren't going to turn out well since I was only ever one of the things in that title. ^^;
joking aside. This is probably my favorite comment I've ever read on this site. You know. As a delusional person who hopes to write many many things well someday.
I guess the author just chose the route of "love just happens!" And the development to happen reaaally slowly...
That's how I like to picture it. Shiho was just being herself when they met. She found the jewelry and returned it to it's owner. No fuss. Then they hit it off. I'm actually fine if we don't get every detail about how that happened.
This. Deserves better than my measly comment can provide. :<
It's so good!
Several dozen times more interesting than another story about school kids doing nothing all damn day.
My family was big on watching movies. I actually got kinda tired of them in my youth and would only watch them if they were about superheroes or video games. Back then the vast majority of those sucked.
When she told her roommate she would be a good mom was especially sweet. ^.^
Another one of "those" stories. Hmm. Wonder how old this is and how many of these exist. ^^;
I wonder if longer stories included moments like these if they would have nearly the same impact. I think longer works tend to plaster the endgame couple all over the cover and advert material so people would quickly just write these moments off as stepping stones though.
This is obviously Plato's fault.
Something about the flow of this, and most of the chapters, bugs me. Not sure what it is. But other than that, I think this was pretty good.
Edit: Which is worse after confessing to someone you like, hearing "I don't like you" or "I want to be best friends with you?"
In the later case you get a friend. So that's the most bang for the buck making the former the lesser value. I mean, if it's the truth than it's the truth. Better to know it sooner rather than later. Then you can "give up gracefully" and move on as they put it in Aoi Hana.
Edit: You can ask someone out again later. Minds do change. Just don't be a prick about it.
