t14819.132020-10-09Which is your favourite vndb theme to use?I'm using the Gekkou no Carnevale (black) theme, though now I feel inferior for not being able to read it.

t14476.12020-08-06Scenes being skipped automaticallyI noticed that, occasionally, when I minimise the window or overlay it with another window, the VN reads ahead automatically. I could leave the room
t14461.112020-08-05Censorship and 17+ English.Funny because from the art style I initially thought this was a nukige, only to discover it was censored for some inexplicable reason.
t823.172020-07-29How is this game?It's an incredibly short VN, which I don't think done it any favours as far as the pacing was concerned. For example, most of the separate events and

t14295.302020-07-08Which VN has your favorite soundtrack?The entire Grisaia trilogy, really. Elements Garden are great composers. Hoshizora no Memoria has two particular tracks I'm especially fond of as

t12588.92020-04-06If the sister doesn't win we riotDefinitely. Somehow I doubt Shigure will get any romantic or erotic scenes though, unfortunately.
t13351.32020-03-02Read before you enjoy this"Each twin has her own route or both of them only shares a threesome rotue/ending? Or maybe both?"Their routes are shared.
t12794.262020-02-20How often do you listen to the full voiced lines?I always read quicker than the line is actually delivered so end up skipping past them, though I do enable the voice to continue after reading the
