A thoroughly unproductive weekend…

So pretty much the whole weekend I spent playing visual novels, moderating the tournament, and answering emails. Mostly the first one.

Finished Fate/Stay Night for the Fate ending. It was pretty emotional, even after watching the anime. Wish I could’ve played the game before the anime though. The Rin-on-Saber scene…was not expected. Yeah…no way any of that could have made it to TV. Although maybe now, with all of the ero-moe anime out there like Ladies versus Butlers and such…

I wonder how long it’ll take for producers to get out of this downward spiral. Oh well, I’m looking forward to BRS.

Anyway, started playing se.きらら now. Someone once mentioned that eroge always have good music. I have to agree. The graphics are nice and sharp too, but that’s expected. The characters, I think, are pretty bland though. It’s pretty cliche with nothing new, although that might be because so many things have been covered already. You have a “cute” childhood friend who’s good at cooking, and she’s probably bad at everything else. Another childhood friend who’s the “big sister” figure. Then you have a rich ojou-sama with a ridiculously energetic personality. She’s like Haruhi, only rich and lacking god powers. The main character is very Kyon-like too. Tsukkomi everywhere, all the time. Anyway, there’s also a short Konata-like figure who is just…weird. She’s really like Konata, I think, minus the otaku-ism. And of course, the teacher is a busty nurse.

Where have we seen this before?

Well, thanks to AGTH and JquickTrans, I’ve managed to learn some new words and kanji, so I’m not complaining too much.

And there haven’t been any H scenes yet, thank goodness, although Haruhi Aya somehow decided to spend the night. Poor MC had to sleep on the floor with a cardboard blanket.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
委員長(iinchou) – The class president or representative, I guess is how it’s said. He/she takes care of speaking and taking over for the teacher. Also tells class to stand, bow, and pose. Er, sit.
