t652.22010-05-31should Infinite Space be added to the db?No, I really don't think so. The amount of text drops off sharply, and once the game gets going it actually has far *less* story per hour than most

t548.152010-04-02Any VN that are highly emotoinal?No, actually One has an english patch as well... I wasn't counting that one since it wasn't released under Key's label, but I guess it's close enough
t548.102010-04-02Any VN that are highly emotoinal?No, I'm afraid it isn't. (Hence the "if not".) In terms of Key, Kanon is the only other one with a full translation patch so your options are pretty
t316.52010-04-02Length...It's for all endings. Of course, the speed people read at varies greatly, which is why it's suggested that you select a length based on comparisons
t548.82010-04-02Any VN that are highly emotoinal?Based on the list of examples, presumably it has to be something available in English? If not, I found Never7 a lot more emotional than Ever17. Very

t285.12009-10-04Regarding Higurashi: Kakera AsobiHi, Just a quick question: Are you sure that r2482 and r2483 (Kakera Asobi) should be associated with v69 (Higurashi Rei)? Their websites don't

t216.42009-07-22Suggestions for other sites to link toIn my experience tvtropes are fairly careless with unmarked spoilers (though not nearly as bad as wikipedia), so it might be best to accompany links

t189.22009-06-13Horrific LocalizationI would agree with most of this, except that unusually I quite liked the English voice acting. It helps that the VO was generally translated
