Review of ひぐらしのなく頃に

Permanent Linkby Deathworks on Tue Mar 16, 2010 1:54 pm

Hi!

There are various reasons for me to do this review and to do it here, including that there are some aspects that may be interesting fetish-wise for at least some members. But let's stick to the proper order:
My first reason for writing this review is probably because I really like ひぐらしのく頃に (Higurashi no naku koro ni; Literally: When the evening cicadas cry; suggested in the original: When they cry). I first encountered it in the anime version (only the first season), and in my opinion, it is the best anime series ever.
The second reason for writing this review is the phenomenon of ひぐらしのく頃に. The fact that there is an anime version is quite surprising if you have a look at the original games.
The third reason is that there are some aspects in the ...

Emotional perception is a strange thing

Permanent Linkby Deathworks on Thu Mar 11, 2010 2:54 am

Hi!

Finally making the move, I bought the sound novel ひぐらしのく頃に(Higurashi no naku koro ni). I had seen the first season of the anime quite a while ago, but at the time, I couldn't buy the sound novel as they are using one of those copyprotection thingies. Now, with a computer of my own that is online, I was finally able to make the purchase.

For those who do not know Higurashi, it is probably one of the best anime series ever and I greatly enjoyed it. I am currently in chapter 2 of the first sound novel, slowly getting close to the catastrophe of that chapter. The sound novel was there first and the anime was based on it and follows it relatively strictly (although the sound novel does not use any CGs, instead using filtered photos for backgrounds and just stand-up images of the characters). WARNING: Higur...

Happiness and Christianity

Permanent Linkby Deathworks on Wed Feb 24, 2010 1:55 am

Hi!

I know, this is a rather weird and misleading title, especially if you consider that I am a genuine atheist (meaning that I actually believe in atheism rather than only leaving institutional church while still believing in their God), but I couldn't think of a better one. This entry has two focus points, which are, of course, the two items mentioned in the title. Thus, it is not solely directed at people concerned with Christianity, but also anyone who has something to say about happiness.

EDIT: The two focus points are Happiness in general and Happiness in context of Christianity. I do not wish to discuss Christianity in its entirety as that would be a discussion filling thick volumes and thus exceeding the limits of a simple blog. I am sorry about any confusion I may have caused.

And before I get started, I welcome comments and a nice discussion. But I will NOT TOLERATE simplistic hate rants against certain belief systems! You can say that you disagree...

Things trickle on

Permanent Linkby Deathworks on Sun Feb 21, 2010 10:57 am

Hi!

Well, no new productivity to report, but things are still looking good.

The Japanese forum seems to see some tentative activity, which I hope will get more intense.

I just finished going through Danger Angel (a non-freeware title I reviewed for a minor hint of vore in my thread before). Unfortunately, there was no further vorish content in it, but at least it was fun. It was a fairly standard RPG story, mixed with a lot of sex, and a really hilarious main character. Towards the end, there were a few scenes I found rather sad, but in the end, I am happy with it.

I am also glad that people were understanding when I retracted from a discussion I was involved in.

Currently, I am thinking about Albinator427's game; I have to admit that seeing the main character as a fatal pred put me back a little bit. So, I have to sort my thoughts there.

Just some loose thoughts

Permanent Linkby Deathworks on Sat Feb 20, 2010 2:18 am

Hi!

A lot of things have been going on, so I feel the need to express a few things.

First of all, I am grateful that some members allow other members here on the community to help them. That is something I feel should be the spirit of this community, so please, if you need help, do rely on us. We are happy about it.

Secondly, while there are people for whom I have gaining appreciation, there are also people about whom I have learned things I would rather have not wanted to learn (thanks to discussions on the forums, NOT in blogs or PM). But then again, given that we are sharing our art and feelings here, knowing that they are so different from me may help avoid deeper mischief.

Third, I am still thrilled that I got productive again. Sure, it were only four little drawings of sketch quality, but I still liked them, and the story for the EPWG, even though it is not revised yet, is also something I am proud of (yes, I am aware that some aspects need improvement, and I plan to do that in...
