< report >How to search for visual novels where protagonists sing for their love and dance/waltz with them ?

looking for less bland and more personality-oriented characters that express their affection creatively by creating /singing poems, songs, or simply display their affection in more artistic and sensible manner.

< report >The absolute best example i can think of is Jacquli's ending from Ar Tonelico 2 (it's closer to a JRPG, though). There is also Kirara's normal ending from Kira Kira, but i don't think it's on the circunstances you're looking for.

< report >Well, not sure about songs/poems, but if you are looking for protagonists who are kind eccentric/"over the top" in their expressions, you could look at Narita Shinri from Hello Lady!. Smee protagonists are also exaggerated in their expressions and often funny (Pure x Connect, Making Lovers, Sugar Style).
Now for art-themed VNs, I'd suggest Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou and Otome ga Tsumugu Koi no Canvas, although both involve crossdressing.

< report >#3 Thanks! how about games like Noble ☆ Works - link ? it seems to have some dance events but i would prefer games with more events like that on a weekly/monthly/yearly basis. Like some form of enjoyment or competition.

< report >#4 Thx! It would have been really good if the hero was a member of a waka/haiku club. Since classical Japanese poems are actually a significant part of school syllabus in Japan, so it would have been nice to have club where a group of friends would create/discuss such topics. Just like Art and Drama club.

Smee protagonists really are something! i remember in Fureraba, the game offered selectable unique conversation topics and later, the protagonist boldly announced his osanajimi Himari as his girlfriend before the whole class. I wonder if such kind of games are also made by other producers ?

Orientation is fine since it can be quite interesting at times.

Canvas series - link also seems to be quite promising regarding art and romance related elements.

< report >If you like the type of protagonists who says random/funny remarks, I'd recommend checking Asa Project games. The best ones are the ones released from Karigurashi Ren'ai onwards, but the previous are still fun.

I've only played Canvas 2 a very long time ago, and the story/pacing wasn't very good (and it's apparently the best rated out of them). I remembered one more art-focused VN, Kiss Ato, which is alright.

< report >Kiss Ato is a decent game, and it is art-focused. So there is a lot of discussion about art, and it tends to focus on the more technical aspects of art and craftmanship and less on the sort of romanticized view of artists that a lot of media uses. So I thought that was kind of refreshing.

I've only finished one route but the protagonist doesn't seem to be into particularly grand gestures when it comes to affection. But he does do wood-working and gives finished pieces as presents to people around him. He's more on the stoic and pragmatic side.

It's set in a college so the characters are a little older than a lot of vns, and they have slightly more practical and adult worries. It's not a terribly exciting game but I liked all of the characters and you'll learn a lot of art-related technical vocabulary if you're reading in Japanese.
