    • Haku_Luvs_You

      Sorry Imma be off topic here. But I’ve seen you on here more and more. Did you always post this much on Siliconera, or did something happen at Gematsu?

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

        I like it here more

        • Haku_Luvs_You

          I see. I tend to see a lot of Gematsuians I knew around here, so I was just wondering :)

    • DyLaN

      I just ask for one thing, could you plz detail all the juicy details of Kurumi route when you get the game ;)

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

        Sure , want me to put it here?

        • DyLaN

          Thks. You can put it at Open Thread.

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

            Ah didn’t know if it was still being used

          • DyLaN

            It is very actively in use. A lot of ppl (and me) comment there every day.

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

            Cool thanks :)

  • ShadowDivz

    Truth be told, if it was an eroge i would actually care, but good news for people who like the anime…And can read japanese.

  • HerosLight

    Kurumi route.

    That is all.

    • TheExile285

      I prefer Origami & Tokha ;P

      • HerosLight

        I like them too.

        I would go like this: Kurumi, Tohka, Origami, others.

  • Göran Isacson

    Dear lord I hope this game isn’t as “serious” as this OP makes it out to be. I have zero interest in this anime if it’s trying to be serious because it’s nothing I haven’t seen done before and done better there, I’m only in it for the zany sidecharacters and the Ratatoskr crew mocking all the dating sim cliches…

    Actually, if this game IS played from the POV of the Ratatoskr crew and you have to hand out decisions to Shido that are silly, contradictory and often times create more messes than they solve? I would be TOTALLY down with this game.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      You know better :P. Every harem anime/game makes itself out to be Anna Karenina in terms of the impact of the characters and their relationships, while ending up damn lucky to be a D-rate Harlequin novel.

    • TheExile285

      Date A Live? Serious?

      LOL

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha, I am well aware that most of the show is a parody… BUT. It does try to play some things seriously, and it always gets very dull when it does so. If the OP had shown me the zany and wacky stuff that’s the REAL meat of the show then I’d have nothing to whine about, but since they didn’t…

        • M’iau M’iaut

          There will be a day one of these shows does something different and establishes the singular pairing from the start — and the adventure begins from there. Sadly Date A Live is not that show :P.

          • Göran Isacson

            See I don’t even curr about the pairings- if the whole show was actually focused on the ships crew making dumb decisions and subtly mocking dating sim conventions, as they almost, ALMOST touch on in some episodes and just make it a straight out comedy that doesn’t even pretend to be about the romance, I would be on Cloud 9. But, alas..

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Pulling off a parody of a genre that is in general a parody is hard to pull off. And clearly beyond the capability of many harem anime writers.

      • DyLaN

        Considering the title is stylize as DATE A LIVE and look at wht happen during the Tohka and Yoshino conquer…..

    • DyLaN

      Funny, the LN readers says tht the SERIOUS PLOT is the better part of the plot… But eh, different taste for different folks I guess. Personally I don’t mind the blend of comedy + seriousness. Those Origami antics and Yandere Kurumi, man.

      • Göran Isacson

        Welp, I guess that the LN could be different from the anime, which is the only exposure I’ve had to the characters and story so far, but yeah, I kinda feel like the story and characters aren’t really engaging or emotionally deep… I’m just watching for the silly parts, essentially. Origami’s blatant honesty at how she is in fact the biggest stalker ever is just the right kind of over the top I can dig.

  • TheExile285

    Considering how ridiculous the anime is, I can’t fathom how crazy this game will be….

  • https://twitter.com/RaiohV Raioh

    You don’t know how much I want this game, all them Kurumi, Origami and Yoshino endings that keep floating in my mind, I’ll damn myself and my lack of understanding Japanese T______T

    • DyLaN

      ………..I can try to look up the vids/spoiler by the time its out. I can’t promise anything though.

  • Rogerrmark

    Before clicking on the thumbs or reading it,I actually thought it was a Neptunia related info.Just saw Cave,Noire and another random CPU.Dafuq.

  • DyLaN

    Iris Heart/Plutia is tht you? I am placing my bet tht Purple is Rinne spirit form even though they haven’t reveal the VA/name for her. Plus Rinne is voiced by KanaHana and she also did the voice for Iris Heart so….

    I’m curious though, why isn’t Mana in the game? Even Reine (she in the main characters section O-O)/Kyouhei (the M guy)/Tht 3 girls/Shidou galge friend/captain of AST/sensei made it into the game..

    PS: Acc to the main site, Purple description says she appears in Shidou dreams. And don’t click on Kotori bios. It have spoilers (even though I saw tht coming and you are safe if you watched EP9).

    I don’t get the appeal of visual novels.

    • DyLaN

      VN are basically CYOA books/novels with pictures, sound, choices and maybe voice acting. The main draw of VN for me is the integration of novel and graphics.
