< report >I've read through the original a few years ago and thought it was really good. I'll warn you, though, it's rather light on the sex instead focusing on the relationships between the three lead characters.

Okaeri has voice acting, so that's probably why I'll go for this version now. If that isn't a big deal then I guess go by whichever version has your preferred artstyle?

< report >@2 I thought JAST's release of Okaeri has an option to switch to the old art.

It does? If so, that's great.

< report >Just wondering... if you already bought the original release, is there any free upgrade option to Okaeri? Or at least a discount?

Not that I'm THAT interested into... replaying it. Oh, the pain~

< report >Well, you could mail JAST. I doubt it though, how long ago did you buy it?

< report >I bought it on late 2011 (and played it somewhere around mid-2012). Well, I'll write them, I guess... but first I'll have to figure out what the hell happened to my account since they migrated their site platform.

< report >So JAST is bundling Kana Okaeri with...Sensei 2?

Did they take a dildo to the frontal lobe or something?

< report >Ain't Kana and Sensei 2 drawn by the same artist? I think I heard something like that. It might have influenced their decision. And Sensei 2 is the best nukige Jast has ever released, thus this bundle contains two whole games of good quality, unlike some other bundles (r24356).

Still, I think Private Nurse would have been a better choice thematically.

Someone with good taste on vndb? I never thought I'd live to see this day! :)

So yeah, thematically it's an odd choice, but you get two good games so people should really stop complaining.

Kana does not have the old artwork, mainly because the guy who promised to make a patch for us bugged out and stopped replying to our emails.
Damn, I wish someone had warned me. Didn't know this until I read this just now. Peter always assured us that there would be the old art available and I believed him ... and now it's not.
Without the old CGs it's completely unplayable for me. Don't want to ruin my beautiful memories with this bland moeblob artstyle.

< report >^Kana's honestly not that bad. You should see how they remade Family Project.

Anyways, they should give you the option of downloading the old version if nothing else.Last modified on 2015-03-14 at 20:13

< report >Does this one have any new endings? Or is it the same endings. I never cared for the endings. Even the good ending wasn't that happy.

< report >I am hacking that thread just to say that updating covers should be forbidden or with the utmost justification other than "I just wanted to increment my edit counter lol" or "it's new!" and that remake cover failed at the test. It's pretty ugly and when I saw her instead of the previous one, I caught a concussion. But like I am not a total douche who likes to edit editing of someone else, I am asking if I am the only one here who think that, even if, I know, the previous one was far to be clean.

< report >i vote for previous too, remake visuals suck balls, there was no urgency to update cover.

< report >disagree old artwork made my eyes bleed and kept me away from this one, Okaeri brings it up to a tolerable level.

< report >Instead of arguing about the cover, I think it would be better if someone replaced 5 of the screenshots with ones from the remake to show how the new visuals look like.

< report >Not only did he replace the cover, he also replaced all the characters with the new art. Disgusting.

< report >all I can say to that is,
someone really does need to do wat suferdude said and replace some of those screenshots as they now look completely out of place with cover and characters replacedLast modified on 2015-05-10 at 00:12
