|< 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.
