Mosaic preferences in Visual Novel H-Scenes

Whenever there's an official release or kickstarter for an Eroge translation there's ALWAYS the question of whether there will be mosaics in the H-scenes or not.

There have been various discussions about H-scenes in the past but surprisingly none/not many topics about the usage of mosaics.

I'm all for No Mosaics, but it's not the end of the world if they are still there. People have complained about bad mosaics before but I don't really care any ones I particularly dislike off the top of my head.

Be sure to vote in this strawpoll:

Do you really think that someone would prefer censored images, without being a troll?
Who doesn't want to read ero, reads completely censored stuff, not uncensored scenes with mosaics.

I'll copy my reply from discord:

This survey could be more complete. I like no mosaics if the art was (re)drawn by the original artist but sometimes, there are things that just aren't meant to be seen.

I won't vote but the answer is "depends".

@2 yes, because sometimes the genitals look fucking garbage. Many times, actually.Last modified on 2019-02-06 at 01:03

I think you should be committed to removing mosaics using whatever appropriate means necessary if you decide to license a product to be sold in the west.

I prefer no mosaic if its an option but gotten use it. I don't think I ever seen a game with no mosaic that looks so bad that its unplayable. I am strictly talking VN and not some of the crappy western stuff that is released.

@5 I think they should be committed to a proper localization first and making sure that they don't remove any existing content before thinking about perfecting what is already fine. Unfortunately we don't live in a timeline where localizations are always so good that we can be privileged to ask for extras. Quite the opposite, there is always more apparent issues to worry about. A shame.Last modified on 2019-02-06 at 02:31

But what about them mosaic toggles?

NekoNyan's release of Hello,good-bye featured a mosaic toggle, and I got confirmation that future Sol Press titles will have a toggle too.
And even before that, Doddler made a patch that restored mosaics for Imopara 2, and later made a installation option to keep them for the boxed edition.

Definitely something worth considering.Last modified on 2019-02-06 at 11:33

You do seriously think that, huh?

Never even considering that the "fleshy bits", even in all their glory, are actually not arousing? There are actually quite plenty which love it if the slit is, well, simply a slit, a cameltoe it is also called. Perfectly closed and when bloomed only half as exciting. It is after all just raw flesh for many. Being able to simply see is different to being able to see details. The details here? One does not necessarily care about that.

Rather one focuses on other pieces which can be aesthetically pleasing while others meanwhile are fine with ugly proportions and shapes. There are plenty of ugly drawings to be found yet they sell! Some udders make me nothing but shudder! It's not like I am strictly in the tsurupeta-faction but it appears that failing to draw them well is likely likely, although it still happens...

The romance of the unseen is not one to be easily disregarded. The law would not have been uphold for that long if people truly wanted to see beyond. Instead the law is got so loose that pubic hair does not need to be censored nor anything but the primary sexual organs and mosaics themselves became very subtle. Of course there is no point in censoring as far as the thighs and no one likes it if the face too is affected by mosaic but that is largely in the past.

It requires but a little imagination and it actually has not be visual imagination either to imagine the "perfect" flesh which is superior to anything drawn. This is unlike modern art where one boasts about having more imagination (delusion) than someone else, it is just a little here (and serves a purpose).

Bleep censors and outright cutting anything are another matter entirely.

I don't think I ever seen a game with no mosaic that looks so bad that its unplayable.
Well, there is an old JAST localization of a fetish game which became unbearable for me even before reaching the fetish content I do not like... one should have called the police on them (JAST or original developer) for making a child draw it! Well, the choice system was also crap but w/e...

just what mosaic did you encounter which made a work unplayable?! Unless it was largely anyway not to your liking and that was the last straw.

Honestly, you get used to anything anyway. It's all about what you see the most.

Uncensored hairless slits for the fucking win!

I prefer mosaics. For the most part mosaics just means that you see dicks on its uncensored glory and i would rather it be pixesls.
Paizuri, blowjob, handjob and other sexual content that doesnt include the vagina doesnt benefits from uncensored.
Hell i can safely say that most H-scenes angles dont even shows the vagina (Like say doggy style usually wont show you the intersection) so really other than uncensored dicks i dont see a reason to care for uncensored releases.

#2 I'm not sure if it's the same thing but some Youtuber asked Nipponese if they prefer mosaic in JAV or not and their answers were quite intresting. I think it can be applied to eroge too: link

#12 personal have no problem with male nudity. I play vn for sex so seems a little silly to me to be weird out by hetero sex that isn't you, hetero sex is going to have a man involved otherwise wouldn't be straight sex(leaving out futa). Otherwise its like watching softcore porn which is really boring to me.

Though I do have my prejudice against fat/old/ugly protag. Seeing as I am neither of these yet (some might argue about third) its a little harder to get into game. Its a bit different when porn has fat guys paying the money which don't have a choice then vs some one can choose to draw how person looks.Last modified on 2019-02-07 at 18:33

I really dont know how to respond to that, i guess that what turns me on is the act itself rather to how is depicted. I have tried to fap to uncensored releases but to me its pretty hard to finish with uncensored eroge due to the ammount of detail, i cringe a little when i see anal or vaginal gapping, im sure its supposed to be erocic but it turns me off instantly (Luckily for the vaginal one its censored but anal can be uncensored at times sadly), same with close ups to both vaginas (When the girl is opening herself for the dude or it isnt just an axe slit) and dicks.

So when i fap to an H-scene im just content to know what the scene is meant to display so the pixelated dick allows me to focus on the scene itself rather than in the details of the genitals.Last modified on 2019-02-07 at 19:20
