6Finished07th TheaterNice crossover parody VN, the second one story is much better than the first.2020-01-292020-01-292014-10-05
9Finished428 ~Fuusa Sareta Shibuya de~Surprisingly engaging and well-done, the real-life pictures work very well, and the plot really heats up as it goes on.2020-02-222020-03-042008-12-04
8FinishedAdabana ItanA personal tale wrapped in Japanese folk tales, great at what it goes for. Aniplex why is this region blocked...2020-07-012020-07-032020-06-18
8FinishedAirDidn't hit as hard as other Key works, but still a solid entry, I read this during a heatwave for maximum immersion.2019-07-212019-08-062000-09-08
8FinishedAI: The Somnium FilesIt's Uchikoshi, was a fun ride but held back by some bad decisions, namely the gameplay being trial and error, and the fight scenes killing the tension every time.2019-09-182019-09-232019-09-17
9FinishedAngel Beats! -1st Beat-Much better than the Anime, the depth to the characters and possible choices you can take makes this a great read, too bad 2nd beat never.2019-12-012020-09-172015-06-26
8.5FinishedATRI -My Dear Moments-An enthralling read, the small cast of characters and post-apocalyptic world really drew me in to it's atmosphere. Art and OST are phenomenal too.2020-06-282020-06-302020-06-18
5FinishedCarrot Cake Jinkaku Shuffle JikenHonestly forgot what happened in this... NarKarma EngineA when?2019-10-072019-10-072015-04-01
9FinishedChaos;ChildGreat entry into SciADV, unfortunately I watched the Anime first, but still it's a thrilling murder mystery story with lots of twists and sci-fi.2018-07-012018-07-092014-12-18
8FinishedChaos;HeadGood start to SciADV, the atmosphere during the first half drew me in like nothing else has really done before, but it fell off a bit towards the end. Looking forward to Noah.2018-05-252018-06-062008-04-25
8StalledCiconia no Naku Koro niPhase 1 was good, though OST was very disappointing, took quite a while to get going too.2019-09-042019-10-04
10FinishedClannadReread: 1. My first VN and it'll forever be 10/10 for me, when I first watched the Anime it killed me and led to me seeking out all of Key's other works and becoming enlightened to the power that Nakige holds.2017-02-222017-09-212004-04-28
7FinishedClannad - Hikari Mimamoru Sakamichi deReread: 1. Not the best honestly, some of the side stories are good (Akio's is the best) but others are pretty dull, and there's no way to go through them fast so it drags a lot. Still, it's Clannad so it's good.2017-09-222017-09-262010-06-03
8.5FinishedDies iraeI wasn't that into this at the start but as the routes went on, whilst I couldn't pin down why, I just became more and more invested in the story and the Chuuni events that were happening until I was having a blast. Too bad probably no other entries in the series will ever get translated.2019-03-042019-05-092007-12-21
7.5FinishedDies irae ~Interview with Kaziklu Bey~Bit underwhelming coming off Dies Irae, it wasn't that interesting of a side story, but it's still worth reading2019-05-092019-05-112016-03-25
7.5FinishedDoki Doki Literature Club!Not part of the anti-DDLC team but the VN SOL parts at the start were really boring and I felt no attachment to the characters, so how does this still have an active fanbase that loves them...2017-10-062017-10-112017-09-22
7.5FinishedEver17 -The Out of Infinity-Heavy disappointment, sure the true route's great and there's occasionally cool stuff, but the path to it is just generic boring slice of life dating sim stuff, where is the tension? Just read 999 and Root Double instead, this is only worth it for Remember11, should have been left in the past. The Muv-Luv Extra/Unlimited of the Infinity Series2020-03-172020-03-242002-08-29

9.5FinishedFata morgana no YakataTop tier, I was loving it within an hour, and it continued to get better and better as more was revealed and the plot became clearer. OST's one of my favourites and the unique art-style makes it a delight to read.2019-09-242019-10-022012-12-27
8FinishedFata morgana no Yakata -Another Episodes-Kind of a disappointment coming off the original, the expanded prequel was nice, but a lot of it was in the original VN so it wasn't necessary. Side stories were cool though.2019-10-032019-10-092015-08-16
7FinishedFate/ExtellaI barely paid attention to the plot and just mindlessly played the gameplay as I found it pretty fun.2018-12-222018-03-042016-11-10
7FinishedFate/Extella LinkI paid even less attention to the plot, as there basically isn't one, why is this still on VNDB lol.2019-03-202019-09-112018-06-07
7.5FinishedFate/ExtraRequires an emulator with skipping and save states to make it not an absolute drag, the actual plot is fairly interesting however.2018-07-102018-07-142010-07-22
8.5FinishedFate/Hollow AtaraxiaNot as good as F/SN but I'm a fan of SOL so I had a fun time, the Bazett/Avenger stuff is very good too.2018-05-102018-05-242005-10-28
10FinishedFate/Stay NightA classic, I was blown away by the fact that a VN could have some of the most hype fight scenes I've ever seen, and as such was converted to NVL superiority. I've since become a Nasuverse fanboy and consumed everything I could, but the original F/SN VN is still my favourite. UBW > HF > Fate2018-04-062018-05-092004-01-30

7.5FinishedGyakuten Saiban 2It's a bit less fun.2019-10-152019-10-212002-10-22

7.5FinishedHarmoniaIt's ok, probably Key's weakest work but there is some fun to be had.2017-10-112017-10-302016-09-23
7FinishedHaruko ManiaxI like Haruko.2019-09-022019-09-072010-09-28
7.5FinishedHatsukoi 1/1Typical dating sim, I hate Runa, Kyou route made me order a pizza.2020-07-072020-07-272012-06-29
7.5FinishedHiganbana no Saku Yoru ni - Dai Ichi YaRyukishi's weakest but still pretty good, stories vary in quality a lot, first few are the best.2020-01-252020-01-272011-08-13
7.5FinishedHiganbana no Saku Yoru ni - Dai Ni YaReaper of the 13th Step is seriously amazing, at least read that even if you skip everything else.2020-01-272020-01-292011-12-31
9FinishedHigurashi no Naku Koro niGood introduction to Higurashi, weaker than Kai, but the mystery is very engaging.2019-05-162019-05-272002-08-10
10FinishedHigurashi no Naku Koro ni KaiAmazing, I was complete in-tune with what Ryukishi was going for from arc 6 onwards and loved every second of those arcs, it got better and better and ended exactly how I hoped. 8 > 7 > 6 > 3 > 1 > 5 > 4 > 22019-05-282020-07-152004-12-30

6FinishedInfinity cure.Izumi cure is pretty crazy which is nice, Yuka cure is unnecessary.2020-03-152020-03-172000-11-23
7.5FinishedIslandDisappointing, it started off really well, though some routes weren't the best, Winter was a great arc that I really enjoyed, but then the ending just let me down hard. I preferred the anime's ending (even if the overall product was worse)2020-01-292020-02-092016-04-28
7.5FinishedKagetsu TooyaReread: 1, A solid fandisc, the main story was good if nothing special, the side stories are great additions. Tohno Family Con Game is pure fun.2018-07-212018-07-252001-08-13
8FinishedKanonKey's start, OST and atmosphere are nice, but the routes weren't anything that special to me, still good though.2018-09-282018-10-111999-06-04
8FinishedKimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi.Interesting meta plot, art's great but the low resolution harms it. I chose Miyuki.2020-08-232020-08-262013-06-28
8.5FinishedKyokugen Dasshutsu 9-Jikan 9-Nin 9 no TobiraFirst Uchikoshi work I read, was pretty impressed by the mystery and the reveals, gameplay's fun too.2018-08-232018-08-272009-12-10
9FinishedKyokugen Dasshutsu ADV - Zennin Shibou DesuStarts off weak but the insanity of the plot as it progresses appeals to me, even if it might be a bit too absurd.2018-08-282018-09-232012-02-16
8FinishedLayton-kyouju VS Gyakuten SaibanPlayed this as a kid, recall being entertained.2014-06-012014-08-172012-11-29
10FinishedLittle Busters!Reread: 1, One of my favourite VNs ever, refrain is a phenomenal route and the themes of friendship present throughout the VN resonates with me.2017-11-012018-01-152007-07-27
