[QUOTE=ButtsexV3;34627328]It's better than katawa shoujo[/QUOTE] No it's not.
[QUOTE=ButtsexV3;34627328]It's better than katawa shoujo but like I said before it's oversaturated with sex[/QUOTE] What the hell are you on about? I wouldn't even be able to compare Katawa Shoujo to Yume Miru Kusuri. One actually shows greater depth and softer approach to characters, while another features an entire cast of unlikable characters safe for the main girls. Even so, the main girls are pretty fucking retarded, since their problems could easily be solved if they weren't so god damn stupid.
[QUOTE=Feuver;34627943]...their problems could easily be solved if they weren't so god damn stupid.[/QUOTE] same could be said about KS. hanako is just shy.
[QUOTE=ButtsexV3;34628244]same could be said about KS. hanako is just shy.[/QUOTE] There is shy and then there is Hanako's level of shy which is totally different from normal shyness.
[QUOTE=ButtsexV3;34628244]same could be said about KS. hanako is just shy.[/QUOTE] I disagree, seriously, the problems in Katawa Shoujo were way more close to reality than those in Yume Miru Kusuri. Seriously, a school wide bully team against one girl lead by another girl? Or a LSD/whatever it does drugged girl that takes herself for a fucking fairy with a taser baton? Or a stupid chick that just does what she wants against sexual favors. These are just extremely silly. I can't relate to any single of the stories in Yume. Sure, it might be entertaining at parts, but the characters are SO annoying. [editline]9th February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=ButtsexV3;34617865]that's what having a younger sibling is actually like[/QUOTE] Also, I'm sure you take baths with your sister all the time.

I've only finished one path in YMK, but it seems completely unbelievable at times. Then again, I have seen on the news a few times where a group of girls will pick on another and push her to suicide. Makes it a bit more believable, but still kinda far fetched.

[QUOTE=Feuver;34630030]A group of girl, no doubts, but when the [sp]Entire school bully her, and even the teacher's on the trick...[/sp][/QUOTE] the entire school doesn't bully her, it's a small group of like 8 people and everyone else stands by and doesn't get involved because they're looking out for themselves first and they know what would happen if they got involved. The teacher isn't in on the trick, he appears legitimately ignorant of the situation.

Yeah, it's not really the entire school, just her entire class. [editline]10th February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Feuver;34629411]Also, I'm sure you take baths with your sister all the time.[/QUOTE] I was giving my sister a hard time(teasing her) once and she threw our cat at me. I'm serious, it left me with a scar on my upper arm.
Finished My Girlfriend is the President. It gets 7/10 from me, and I'd love to see an animation of it.
[QUOTE=iLife_Aftermath;34631369]Finished My Girlfriend is the President. It gets 7/10 from me, and I'd love to see an animation of it.[/QUOTE] I only just finished Yukinon's route and it's already got an 8-9/10 from me but I'm a total sucker when it comes to the type of comedy present in it. Heh, glad I'm not the only one who thought that there should be an anime.
It has lovable and distinguishable characters, and it could follow a Clannad-isch storyline, in where it takes parts from each route and takes one ending, like Yukino's. But fuck, I wanna see Ell's [sp]Cat ear scene[/sp], so I hope it would be her route.

[editline]9th February 2012[/editline] Also, I'm sure you take baths with your sister all the time.[/QUOTE] You've read the entirety of all 3 arcs, right? Aeka's [sp]situation was a little more farfetched, yet you still have to keep in mind that this is japan we're talking about. From what i've read online (not very much) bullying in japan is a little different than it is in most other countries. Typically a teacher doesn't give a fuck what happens, believing that the student should take care of their own problems. You could tell that a large majority of the class wanted to do something about Aeka at one point or another, but didn't want to make themselves a target of the bullying themselves.[/sp] Nekoko [sp]was a timid girl who hated her life, and wanted to become the life of the party. She wanted to be vibrant and colourful, so she turned drugs in order to loosen up and become nekoko. Because drug dealers occasionally give "first-time discounts" to new buyers in order to get them hooked on it, nekoko started to get in over her head and built up an immunity to the drug.[/sp] Kimiyama [sp]felt like she had no future for herself. No motivation to do anything, no passion for anything. She was completely depressed and sought dangerous activities to live life to the fullest. She also wanted to try and become pregnant because "I have this womb, might as well use it for something", so she tried to have unprotected sex as often as possible.[/sp] In the end it's basically just 3 stories about girls who hate their lives and want to change them, but cope with their problems in the worst possible ways. I had very little problems with the actual stories, it just had far too much sex in it. Yet all of the stories wrap up nicely if you get the good endings, at least I believe they do. And in japan it's fairly common to take baths with your siblings up to a certain age.

hi ok im going to plug majikoi for a bit [img]http://yandere.gray7.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/majikoi.jpg[/img] its about highschool w/ your gang of bros and samurai chicks and its fucking awesome pros -great cast of nutty characters -awesome art + spritework -funny as fuck, never tries to be too serious -fight scenes: DBZ with gratuitous titties -voice acting (example: Kamina) -if they exist, they probably have a route -lots of sex cons -7 fucking gigs -only partially translated by fans: some routes are done but others (including the "true" route and the best girl) are in progress -if you dont like parody/over the top you're blown -speaking of blown there is a LOT of sex so your mileage may vary -you cant fuck the robot so i def. recommend you give it a shot
