    I guess its just me that absolutely hated Rin's route.
    I had a bit of trouble with Rin's arc. Not in the sense that I hated it in general (I found it very well-written and I could often identify with the characters), but rather because    Hisao's growing obsession with Rin in spite of her continual aloofness didn't rub off on me   . It all sort of came together into something rewarding towards the end, but for much of act 2 and onward I felt a bit disconnected to Hisao (and, in turn, to Rin) and frequently became annoyed with how things were turning out.

    I'd have to agree, i didn't really understand Rin's arc at all. I'll have to give her arc a replay.

    This explains my situation.    Rin's aloofness was what really did it in for me. It felt a lot less serious than the other routes and her disability didn't really make an impact on the story (even though lilly's didn't either).   If it wasn't me being a completionist I could have been perfectly fine for never going through her route.

       Not in spite of, because of. Rin was a complete mystery so as Hisao's curiosity grew, he became obsessed with getting to know her better.

    True. In my eyes it made Hisao seem a bit    psychotic however. Even though I was always curious to find out more about her I personally wasn't as intrigued by or complacent with her swinging back and forth between being friendly and dismissive as Hisao evidently was...   

    It's a darn shame the writer's idea of "mystery" created such personal problems for me, because literally everything else about the arc was great.

    Probably better that way to be honest, most people here don't seem to be interested in anything but KS when it comes to VNs.

    VNs mostly get talked about in Fast Anime, I'd like them OUT. Though it'd be a bit weird to have a much more popular thread thread getting merged into a smaller general chat.

    KS introduced me to VNs as a genre and made me start playing others like Clanned, but I still enjoy talking about KS because I enjoyed Rin's arc so much.

    The only other VN's I've played were the zero escapes and a bit of IMHHW. KS really isn't even all that great, but it's so memorable despite that and it's still fun to talk about

    I'm not. I mean, I'm not against the idea of reading them, but I don't have anywhere enough interest to go and find more.

    And no, that isn't a call for recommendations.

    I feel as though that is a subtle dig at Lilly. Anyway, you are right. I don't understand artists. I've pretty good friends with one and i don't get how he works. I generally act in the same style as him (Impulsive and unpredictably), but i don't get him. It wasn't the lack of fucking or anything that annoyed me, it was the general vagueness of Rin, coupled with her art just fucking lost me.

    She had a dream about the dandelion scene before it happened.

    And since it came true she started crying out of happiness, just like when she dreamed it.

    Shizune isn't a cunt. She just has difficulty with communication; which is totally understandable.

    Shit, I'd bet Misha doesn't relay exactly what she says even a tenth of the time, which would change people's perception of you drastically without you even knowing/being able to do anything.

    She's blunt, which makes a ton of sense, given that her only way of communication is by one proxy or another.

    Hisao's JEWISH?!
    ermagerd it's just a geometric construct, I hate not being able to use it because people insist on making Judaism jokes.

    I just picked it because it has enough places for all the girls + Hisao.

    I've seen people discuss this before and apparently Rin made those paintings before the    sex scene   , so unless she's like that guy from Heroes who can paint the future.....
