Visual novels

General

Tired of endless anime and manga? Well, why not read a Japanese visual novel! What’s a “Japanese visual novel”, you ask? Well, it’s kind of like a digital story book, similar to manga in terms of art style and text, but only it has color and usually contains voices like an anime. And like anime/manga, it comes in a variety of genres to choose. Unlike anime/manga, however, usually you are much more involved in the storyline through the eyes of the main character and your choices inevitably effect the direction of the story.

Simply put, it’s a choose-your-own-adventure book in a form of a video game. This is a compilation of every single first impressions/playthrough post regarding Japanese visual novels ever posted on this blog. Warning: For playthroughs, sometimes we don’t use fan-translations because the game lacks one and we are often forced to read it raw. Due to limited knowledge on moonrunes, our interpretations of storyline events may be inaccurate.
