My list of to-read Visual Novels

Recently, I’ve been way too much swamped with Visual Novels, and my bad habit is to try them as soon as I hear about them. So, in order to organize my list and all, I decided to keep a list here of the ones I’d like to read in a priority order.

1. Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no (http://vndb.org/v604): This Visual Novel really tops the list. In all seriousness, I have never played a slice-of-life Visual Novel that can be this excellent. Be it the script, be it the BGM, be it the events, everything about this VN, regardless of how much I write, I won’t be able to convey how excellent this is. If anyone stumbles across this post and is looking for an awesome non-action VN to read, I’ll recommend this one first.

2. Hikoukigumo no mukougawa (http://vndb.org/v13711):  I started reading this only yesterday, and what caught my attention was Eiri. And apparently her route is the best in the whole VN, so it’s a must-read for me.

3. Fureraba ~Friend to Lover~ (http://vndb.org/v11856): I love this Visual Novel a lot as well, since it comes much closer than other VNs I’ve read in terms of actually conversing with a girl about various topics to make her fall for the protagonist. The dynamism of the system, the comedy, and the nice characters make for an awesome read. I’ve already finished Yuzuyu route on this, but I’d like to finish the other routes soon, since every one of them, I feel I’m looking forward to.

4. Dolphin Divers (http://vndb.org/v9916): I have heard good things about this one, but yet to start reading properly. I’m kind of expecting good things from this.

5. Twinkle Crusaders (http://vndb.org/v666): I played a bit of this and was really good, albeit long. This is also on my to-read list.

Future Reads:

1. Evolimit (http://vndb.org/v3111): I am downloading the trial for it right now. It falls among the tough-to-read-for-my-level VNs, so I’ll need to see where I’ll put it in the above list in future. But regardless, I’m kind of looking forward to this too.

2. Kurenai no Tsuki (http://vndb.org/v2031): I downloaded this half on a whim, but I’ll see where it goes once I’m done with the above.

3. DCIII R (http://vndb.org/v6438): I loved this VN, but due to unfortunately losing my save progress, I find myself facing a huge mental blocking in reading through it again. I got to read it since I bought the R All-Ages version due to liking it so much…

4. Draculius (http://vndb.org/v453): This also belongs to the Evolimit group, I think. Should get to it someday.

Many thanks to Clephas for recommending all these (except Fureraba and DCIII)~

I just hope there won’t be additions to this list, since I’m estimating if I end up reading all these, it’ll take me a year… (I play MMOs and stuff as well as fansub, AND my Japanese reading speed is much slower, so…)

PS. Will most likely have to drop Log Horizon, and be a man and admit I failed.
