Confusing tags/traits (Spoilers)

< report >So we have the tags "pure love story" "no sexual content" and no age rating for most releases.

Yet the tags are also filled with an abundance of rape, torture, sexual child abuse, non-consensual erotic humiliation, monster sex, and TENTACLE RAPE? Lol.

So all this 18+ content is somehow text only? At that point I feel like the CG artist is just lazy.

I did browse the other discussions, but users were being very vague/contradictory about this stuff. So feel free to spoil me on what exactly is going on with these tags & traits.

Lest this be my very first pure love story tentacle rape VN.

EDIT: Finished it, so I'll clarify for anyone else wondering this: Yes, pretty much everything that happens is all in dreams or "haunting" sequences and doesn't really happen. There's only one or two exceptions with Kurokami, one of which being an implied gang rape thing that happens to her ancestor 1000yrs ago (not quite sure wtf that has to do with her).

As for the tentacle rape or monster sex, the tags are simply WRONG. A girl hallucinated about a dislikable stepfather-type man being a giant caterpillar monster who uses a sharp tentacle appendage to stab into her thigh, stomach, and chest. This is later shown to be a manifestation of how in real life, the man attempted to kidnap her and use a tattoo gun to brand her as part of his "family" (a plan which never came true in reality).

So yeah. Moral of the story here is to tag your shit right, people.Last modified on 2021-03-30 at 23:14

< report >I only read half of the novel, but it's pretty much what you said. All tags are true and all of "that" content is text-only (but sometimes very descriptive).
I would say that the decision to make it text-only is actually working (at least for me). I read some guro/gore novels with lots of CGs and was like "eh, ok, looks bad". In this one, though, it became a bit hard for me to read because i kept imagining this stuff happening to those poor girls in my head.Last modified on 2021-03-27 at 06:56

< report >Gotcha. Also, I see the traits "nightmares" "delusions" & "hallucinations" on most characters, does this mean a lot of the stuff doesn't actually happen?

Read my edit.Last modified on 2021-03-30 at 23:15

< report >No, the tags weren't wrong.

Screenshot from game: link

It's implied that Kanae was raped. Although, it was only in the dream. It's part of her trauma as she believes she's been dirtied.

"It's not the first time you've seen it, haven't you? ...Haven't you taken a bath together with your dad before?"

So unless his dad brings a tattoo gun to the bath, it's pretty obvious what happened.

Yes lmao Kanae scene is definitely not a tattoo gun wtf. It's clearly raped by tanaka. It's silly to think she'd feel that "dirty" and traumatized just bc she's been tattoed wtf. However its also clear to me that it didnt really happen and it was another daydream, and when tanaka is actually taking her, both Suzumu and Hinagata save her before things happen, which is kind of cheap in my opinion (not that I wanted to happen, but don't show it and go "ugh actually, all the fucked up shit u've read didnt rly happen)/

Also why nobody is mentioning
Tsubakiko? she's definitely sexually abused as a child, so yes, the tag is right/
