And unfortunately I don't even remember which games where the heaviest. If I had to guess, Fortissimo probably managed it with the last parts for Momiji, same as Daito in some of the routes of the characters I liked and didn't have a sucky route.

And guess what, when you write about this, you remember. Himawari no Kyoukai to Nagai Natsuyasumi Yomi's route. I was hit so heavy from that flashback and shit. Geez. It really resonated with me. Cats I tell ya.

I'm not against it. It's kinda not that well thought of in Japan, but at this point it becomes more and more obvious that eroge that try to do even just a little more get issues. So one option is to try crowd-funding.
Another, looking west, but unfortunately the simple "moege" is also the most popular here.
And then you can try to still fulfill eroge expectations in games where it doesn't fit. So you get something like Tokihate, where you just get a random short "date+sex" arc in every route that clashes super hard with everything else the game does, or Shinsou Noise where the protagonist is forced by some guy to "rape" a heroine instead of having him rape her in front of the protag like anyone would assume in that situation. Sure, you could ask yourself if the rape part was necessary there or not (probably not, the story gets fairly bad later on), but I've seen more than enough eroge suffering from eroge expectations.

So, who knows, maybe SOME kind of fresh wind from croudfunding could work out. Though I'm quite against the moege crowdfunding where people vote with money which pair of tits makes it into the game.

That's so true. It looks correct and proportionate without catering to either more popular extremes.

That has definitely gotten worse over time, especially recent. I expect cowtits from nukige and moege, but when even charage start to include 80% cowtits with one token loli is when I start to get angry at Nips.

Just look at Tone Works' titles for a nice representation of what's going on:
>Hatsukoi 1/1: B, C, D, E, E+
>Hoshi Ori: A, B, C, D, D, E+
>Ginharu: A/B, E+, E+, E+, E+

Personally I prefer the way Hoshi Ori did it, with every girl basically having their own size sans those two D cups.

No and yes, in that order. There's a couple routes where he acts cooler than normal (Bethly, Mizuha) but for the most part he's your average Japanese MC who apologizes too much and can't read between the lines to save his life. If you think Hoshi Ori's MC is bad though, don't read Hatsukoi 1/1.

I don't care much as long as it looks good. Which is quite often not the case for too big chests.

But I have trouble thinking too much about that anyway. For example, I'm not into lolis. But if I like a character a lot, who just happens to be a loli (which happens quite a bit), I don't really want that any other way, even if that perhaps makes the ero not for me or whatever. I just can't imagine Momiji not being a short A-cup, or Jakuri, or whoever. Same goes for big breasts. Even if it looks dumb, that's just the way it is.

But, well, E cups and whatnot are quite different from game to game anyway. Artstyle and such. The blonde girl here is supposedly E+. This is like B in some other games I feel. And it's not even the most extreme.

I looked that chara up and while I'll agree that she doesn't look like she has a 92cm bust in that pic, her breasts do look to be at least D cup. Also, a lot of the time the sprite will have a smaller bust than say, H CGs where they seemingly expand out of nowhere - Momiji from Ginharu is a huge offender at this, her tits grow 3 cup sizes with no bra.

I'm not too picky either myself, sometimes I actually prefer the cowtit girl and sometimes I prefer the loli.

That should be the gentleman's way.
In the end, as important as looks are, they are never everything. Just yesterday I was watching an episode of Saekano again and got Utaha and Eriri "argue" about scenario vs. art.

As for the cupsize and whatnot. Pic related considers the protag a lolicon for getting attracted to her. Yes, almost all other girls there have massive cowtits, so in comparison.. maybe. She's also probably "underage". But still..

Yeah, it does have a bunch. But it's not too bad. It's not like there are 50 bad ends and 1 good one or something. Although "good" depends on your viewpoint.. I guess?

That said, while the writing could definitely be better, all but one main route were pretty nice and fitting with what I expected of a game like this. A lot of the support character didn't need their mini "routes" though I feel.
The final route wasn't bad either, though in the end the game just had too much time and budget dedicated to ero, even though it feels more "plotge".

I think I wrote something about the game when I finished it, so try the archive or smth if you want to know more. I was just into it a decent amount, because I liked the main heroine and found the idea to try to get her out of the crappy situation she is in appealing. Probably a lot less interesting otherwise.

That looks deceiving. Most of the time you literally have no other choice but one, and the walkthrough shouldn't be "do only this, or else..." either. It has some enforced stuff as well, so... for example. The first playthrough you see there, literally nothing should matter but the very last part with the small ending branch. And it's really small. You die 10 lines later small if messed up. It's not the strength of the game.
You simply choose your destination every time period and later on you unlock new possibilities. There are some somewhat not too obvious key items to collect for certain good endings, but for the most part... you click on the face you wanna do the route of.

I feel like the devs missed out on a huge opportunity by not making Ushio the MC's actual onee-san. Even an adopted sister or a cousin with an onee-san-like relationship would have sufficed. The "onee-san" gimmick really doesn't carry itself well enough if there she has no deep and personal familiarity with the MC from the start.

Just finished Yusumi's route in Hatsukoi. I think this one is my favorite out of the three I've done so far. Yusumi is pretty cute, so it's kind of a shame she isn't present at all in any of the other routes. Although now that I think about it, only one heroine is omnipresent throughout the whole game, since the others aren't connected to the main group. Normally I'd dislike this, but I'm a pretty big fan of the dynamic between the main group of friends, so I don't mind it in this case.

Now I'm faced with the question of do I bother trying to get her bad end. When I get the bad end first obviously I immediately go get the good end, but when I get the good end first it's kind of hard to work up the motivation to get the other ending when I can already sort of imagine how it goes.

Coco and Anzu are the only routes I have left now. Coco is probably my least favorite heroine, so I think I might just do Anzu and leave Coco's route undone. I've been wanting to do Anzu's route so badly it's kind of hard to keep waiting anyway.

Have you seen Ushio's H scenes? At least half of them have REALLY weird angles. It's like they wanted to show her entire body during the scenes so they end up having H scenes like these:

They would've had to change the story around for that. I actually really like her onee-chan shtick despite them not being related.

Ushio also has a ton of screentime in the beginning before the other heroines join the shop so I felt closer to Ushio than I did Kanon after a few hours of reading.

One of my pet peeves though is how, even after becoming a couple and having sex, the MC and Ushio still refer to each other by their last names - maybe this changes later on, as I'm not very far into her route still. It still annoys me though.

>> No.17564912

>>17564849
After mulling it over I don't think that would work given what the story is trying to tell, having Ushio actually be closely related to the MC would defeat the purpose. Unless it was a very distant cousin or something and they had only met once or twice in the past.

I feel like angling was one of the larger issues in general when it came to the H-scenes. That, and the expressions, which felt pretty QUALITY at times. Overall it's still fairly decent for a moege, but that's not saying much since most moege artists are very poor at H-scenes anyway. One thing I really liked was how the genitalia had some actual physics going on with them, in a lot of eroge it feels pretty flat - there's a dick and a vagina there, and they're touching, but it feels lacking in impact (an even better title in this regard is the latest Clochette; Shintaro did an excellent job there). Also it was nice how they implemented some "after-sex" CG which is a bit of a rarity in moege. Specifically thinking of the Raiha scene where she goes down on the protagonist post-sex and cum starts dripping out of her vagina. That was well done. Overall mixed feelings, but there was some good stuff there. I can't help but feel as if Ushio should've been a bit more "spoiling" in the H-scenes. What's the point of having an onee-san that takes it just the same as all the other girls? Like you, I found her H-scenes the most disappointing.

Exactly! She should've been a bit more dominant and 'spoiling' as you say, befitting her onee-chan status.

Despite the poor-ish quality of Ushio's H scenes I still think her voice acting is the best in the game by far, with Shizuka not far behind. She felt 'genuine' to me with her words and the manner in which she talked and the emotion she brought out. Maybe it's because she's fairly new to this kind of work or something, idk.

I'm not into self-insert, so the only thing this'll do is making me cringe super hard.
In addition to that, this would also limit art and whatnot quite a bit, if you wanna be pure PoV. Sprites kinda work normally, but they tend to be fairly generously used, so even if a character is walking "next" to the protag, you still see the sprite as if they stand in front and such. But CG (and ero) tend to not give a damn. Actually kinda funny, with how the protags get written. I don't need to understand this.

It's not nukige though. Marshmallow just spends all its time on porn, but doesn't actually try to offer good one. In fact, you just fall asleep, because NOTHING HAPPENS.
See, a normal eroscene tends to have around 10kb writing for each unique CG. Once you get past that, it tends to get ugly. Also usually at most 2 are in a scene for a total of 20kb. That's about 20-30 minutes of "ahn". That's alright.
In marshmallow you have at least 20kb for ONE CG. And it's not that much more is "happening" than in other eroge, obviously. And they don't come alone. Scenes can have up to 3 CG, although 2 are more normal. Still. Even two can be 60 minutes of moaning, while 3 is movie length ero! Without anything else. Just moaning and you typical ero dialogue and narration.

Not even position or situation-wise it can really be considered particularly good, probably even somewhat below average judging from the general complaints that came up here lately. So, it's a moege that simply spends an extreme amount of text on its porn that's barely moege average, but for nukige simply miserable. And I don't think this is the way to go. If they want this amount of ero text, add the necessary CG and whatnot as well. But then you are... a nukige. DUH.

Most of the H scenes in mashimaro aren't THAT long, except for that one H scene (2 of the 4 routes I've read thus far have it, so I'll assume it happens to every girl) where the couple bang all night and only end in the morning.

I've only played Sasa's route and I actually measured them. Her route has a good 200kb in ero. 10 hcg. So provided the other routes aren't largely different than hers, it's how I said it. Usually this stuff is fairly similar though. (i.e. it's not one scene/CG that blows Sasa's stuff out of proportion, they are all pretty similar)

And yeah, I've measured this in other games as well. Sometimes I'm just interested in how much ero there is compared to the rest of a route. And this was on of those cases. And to give another game with fairly similar ero-content (10hcg, 4 heroines in the routes, let's ignore the omakes) as an example : Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia. 330k ero text, for all of it together.

Either get the Phantom Integration PC version (best, but unvoiced) or emulate the PS2 version (also good, voiced). Voices aren't really needed imo but both of those are fine.

If you learn some Japanese, this'll become hell. There are too many spinoff games, or LN that never get adapted fully even though they are pretty damn good and so on and so forth. Very little translated. Especially if your taste isn't super mainstream.

I mean, look at me, I just started Summon Night 1 (DS remake), an rpg series mostly unknown in the west, where 5 was the first that got translated. (in a so shitty way it's better to be ignored..) But hey, the swordcraft spinoff games localized by Atlus way back then for GBA were quite fun... so here I am. Doing dumb things. It's a fairly interesting srpg as well, including getting extra stuff for playing the game hardcore. (no deaths allowed, level restriction, at most 6 items in a single battle..)

I haven't played the PSP port myself, but it supposedly has one completely new character heroine with a route and an existing side character gets herself a route.

Preset for each battle. The level rises obviously and it seems like you can see it before every battle. The rest should be static, as it doesn't say anything specific there.

I also think that you don't need to level characters if you don't want to. You get exp at the end and distribute it as you wish, but can only do so as long as the character levels. (i.e. if you have 300 exp left, but every character needs more, you can no longer distribute any) I THINK you keep that exp and it carries over, though I'm not a 100% on that, as I only played 3 maps so far. I also don't know if summons count. They don't count towards the character limit of a battle I think, but...
Regardless, it's quite nice as you can use your characters without looking at "who to give exp" and such things freely as well. And you could still use free maps to collect money or simply play them once.


That said, story is fairly thin + normal and all the choices probably matter little. A nice little touch is the choice between 4 protags (2guys+2girls). And there are probably a decent amount of character endings to get as well. I've heard the newer games have more story, but I don't really know. I'm going pretty blind into this, so I have no idea what's gonna be what.

Can confirm Kanon also has all night long H scene. I heard this was a something Marmalade always does with their games. Her route has significantly more story (maybe 60%) before getting into the H. Once you do, they're quite closely spaced until you reach the end.

Only have Sasa left before I'm done with Mashimaro. Really like those title screen poses for the girls and how they unlock after you finish their route (and also for their 2 extra after story h scenes too).

This sort of pacing is what makes me wish routes started way earlier on. That since it basically boils down to a choose your own heroine game, I wish we'd get to make that choice a lot earlier on.

You could space out the porn a lot better. You could avoid having to pull all these bullshit contrived reasons why the two have been interacting for weeks/months and only just now realize they want to rub their genitalia together. You wouldn't have to cram all the drama in between the sex in the last hour of the game.

On the other hand I think the desire to see x girl naked is a major motivating factor to keep reading in these sorts of games so you'd have to, I dunno, put in an actual plot, or write an interesting heroine or something to compensate.

More than 3 eroscenes in a route are gonna be hard, outside of nukige. If you'd care about them AND care about the rest as well.

I'm still thinking a good solution would simply to add some freakin' choice to the ero. It's not that farfetched. There are choices in the game. How about an actual choice in regards to ero? Obviously people are still gonna collect them all at some point, but that way you don't need to worry about how you can get a ton of ero into one route and can simply offer a more personalized experience.
I'd kinda want that with heroine routes in general anyway. How come there is never choices for different kinds of relationships? Maybe you want to be the more timid guy who gets spoiled? Or maybe you'd rather spoil the girl? People are different. It's not just about which pair of breasts. But maybe that's too much to ask for with eroge. Just make this weird middle ground with a soulless protagonist.

That's true, but it's relatively common to get to hang out with your girl of choice more in the common routes. I wish they'd let you cement your relationship early on. Especially with the type of girl who is 一目惚れ with the MC, and you have to just kind of wait impatiently through hours of reading and weeks in-game before you can finally respond to it.

There's a joke "ending" in Tojita Sekai no Tori Colony where the MC asks out a transfer student on her first day in, she happily accepts, he confesses his love, she does back, and it escalates into them yelling out WE'RE GETTING MARRIED in the middle of class less than a minute after meeting each other. And then they do get married. And it's fucking great. It's more of a joke thing, but that kind of love at first sight stuff is super cute.

But even that is a weird example. Both didn't fall in love at first sight at all. In Momiji's case she's actually just so proactive, because she didn't act in the past and regrets it. I suppose she isn't aware that she ended up crushing on the same guy, but yeah.
And Tojita Sekai Is just overall too weird. The war going on there and everything just makes these loops into something utterly different.


Love at first sight isn't too weird. Happens in Dokodona for example, even though there's a "reason" there as well. But it's definitely true first sight. You just gotta be careful, otherwise your eroge is over in 10 minutes.

To be honest, I don't find ero to be much of an issue, unless they're placed at awkward times and breaks the flow of the story.

That would actually be really nice if it happened but probably a double edged sword. Shorter common route means less character interaction typically, and less time to get to know the heroines. However, the long common route is so entrenched into VNs nowadays that it would be hard to break the mold reliably; after all, eroge developers use this formula for a reason.

>>17572400
>I'm still thinking a good solution would simply to add some freakin' choice to the ero. It's not that farfetched. There are choices in the game. How about an actual choice in regards to ero?
Again, this would be nice if done properly, but for the most part the only ero choice you get is the old inside/outside choice. Personally, I wish we had a little choice in say, the sexual positions. Obviously this would be a lot of extra work but it would be a very nice touch. The Cation series (an oldschool style 'modern' dating sim) kinda sorta does this with 'unlockable' outfits for certain heroine H scenes that you typically buy.

At this point though making eroge has refined itself to the point where we get such formulaic stuff pumped out en masse.

Do we really need this? So much time, I mean. For most things you can tell right from the character design what type of girl they're going to be, and they do this on purpose. There's always variations, but they're on a theme, not usually major ones. And they always save the big archtype-busting revelations for after you've chosen a route so that's not an issue either.

The less character interaction just brings me to a different gripe, which is that everyone else disappears after you get onto the character route, which is lame. The girl who got picked lording it over the others who didn't is my fetish and there's never enough of this.

>>17572944
>The girl who got picked lording it over the others who didn't is my fetish and there's never enough of this.
The reason they don't do this often is because it makes the girl seem like a bitch, and Elevens would rather have a submissive moeblob over a semi-realistic depiction of a female. Can you blame them, though? Real life eroge situations are pretty damn unrealistic; there's no way a bunch of girls, all competing for the same guy, would act so friendly and cordial with each other. When in reality they'd be jealous, start petty squabbles, spread rumors, form cliques, bully lower ranked females, etc etc. Elevens, of course, don't want to pay to read about girls like these, even if it makes them seem human. So now we end up in the situation where the MC has no male friends, all the girls love him but never fight amongst themselves, and the only couple allowed is MC+heroine.

I'll expand on this and say in my opinion this is lame only when the heroines are all frequently around in the common route. If they're around all the time and suddenly disappear when you go on someone else's route, then that is kinda lame. I make that distinction because occasionally you'll find a game where one or multiple heroines aren't well connected to the others, and thus them not being present at all once the MC hooks up with another girl does not feel unnatural.

I at least wish there were more room for heroines that aren't strictly saccharine lawful-good girls who are nice to everybody. I loved Ami from Semiramis no Tenbin for example, but it seems she rubbed a lot of people the wrong way because she doesn't behave like a "proper" eroge heroine.

Hapymaher still sold alright though I think. Got a fandisc too, even with its plot and recycling issues. And that game was pure "the girls aren't that nice". Sure, they aren't evil, but they don't shy away from pointing out flaws or trying to get ahead here or there. It's essentially one of those games that shows quite nicely how not very fun a harem is.

Though if you really wanna get some different kind of harem... Tojita Sekai no Tori Colony. I know I recommended this already what.. a year ago? But that one is quite nice if you get sick of the "usual eroge harem". It's such a shame that its author hasn't written anything alone ever again. The EGS rating of that isn't bad either, so it's not like it wasn't liked... by those few who actually played it. And managed to get past the big big... chapter 2? I think it was 2. The one where you'll literally get asked if you want to advance once you've cleared all the necessary stuff in it, as there's a good amount more as well... mostly for jokes and to fulfill another kind of "sick of usual eroge" : Not enough choices or freedom.

Christ, this. I tried 1/7 Mahoutsukai but it was unmitigated crapola, they had the guy from Koiken Otome doing terribly dry and awful magic infodumps every couple of minutes and all the best girls weren't heroines. When I found out you couldn't even date the imouto (I was a fool to hope for another Korone) I dropped it on the spot.

I think the best thing to do is to put 2-3 H-scenes in the heroine's story and add the rest as optional extra scenes that are unlocked and read from the title screen.

That way you get the feeling of progress and intimacy that comes with the build-up to H-scenes in the story, but they don't clog up the route too much and the hornier players still get the high quantity of ero that they want.

Too much like that can be bad though, as progression ero can be more valuable, as you are in the story. That's.. kinda the appeal of ero in not nukige anyway. Which is why I'd just have options.
Like a handjob or blowjob? Doggy or cowgirl? And the leftover stuff gets into the extra menu as well. Done. That way you can have 4-6 hcg in the main-story and another 4-6 you get via extra menu as "not chosen" stuff, if you still care. So depending on how much the producers want, you still have the same 8-12 hcg per girl and the same amount of text and everything.

More often than not, I doubt people would even care about what'd be left over. Everyone has their preferences, and unless it's a girl they REALLY like, barely anyone would use all the scenes, or even close to all of them. The reason why there's a lot is mostly just variety. Technically even just 2 eroscenes could be enough, if they are really good. But everyone just likes different stuff, even for vanilla. So you gotta cover the 7-8 basic positions and a bunch of situations already, so people aren't disappointed because their favorite stuff isn't there. (i.e. imagine no blowjob. I don't care about them as I think 99% of eroge blowjobs sound horrible to the point it's more funny than anything else, but there are many liking them and they'd be disappointed. Same goes for doggy. For cowgirl. I'd also argue for sitting giving its intimacy and easiness for kisses and lot's of hugging. The first time deflowering, usually missionary. And so on.)

No need to bring pic related into fiction. If you tell a story, and want it to be good, having an asshole being an asshole for no reason and getting away with it is about as great storytelling as letting the main villain randomly fall down some stairs and break their neck which collapses the evil society while the heroes are still bashing heads with random mugs.
Why write a story if the reader could just read the newspaper? Or go on the street? Well, eroge are minor exceptions, as there's always the "because ero!" answer, but I'm sure there are plenty of nukige with asshole heroines who remain assholes anyway... so yeah.

Maybe because it's less common? But an evil character is not inherently better than a "good" character. They both need the same stuff to be actually entertaining.
I at least don't see a difference between a cat kicking villain who does bad things because they are bad, and a superhero who saves people and defeats evil because that's good. Once you add more to it, "evil" is quickly becoming debatable. Or you just have psychos, which is quite possible as well.

Yeah, for a relative newbie to the voice acting industry, Ushio sounds downright amazing, and dare I say, felt genuine. I'm really glad they gave Ushio a more mature voice, your typical squeaking loli wouldn't have cut it as an onee-chan. And as you say, she definitely acts mature - most of the time. She's bright and cheery almost always but certain things make her go into pouting mode, which is cute in its own way.

Probably my biggest fault with Ushio lies not with her or her character, but with the artists/whoever made her H scenes. They aren't bad per se, but I felt she got shafted compared to the other heroines in regards to the sexual positions her and MC do during sex. Some of Sasa's H scenes, for example, would have been especially erotic with Ushio in them instead - in particular the mating press and sitting/cowgirl positions.

As for RaiRai, one of my favorite things about her was that you can see her panty line on her backward facing sprite when she's in her work clothes, see pic.

I doubt they would completely abandon the eroge market but they probably won't put as much care for it anymore like what happened to Eushully or Baseson. ;_;

>August is shifting into making DMM gacha games
Really? That sucks, I've always liked August games, although Senmomo was a let down.

I wonder if FGO's success influenced companies like Eushully (and apparently August) to try the same. Gacha seems like such a sell out though as a consumer, you pay more for far less content. As someone that used to play a gacha mobage (Brave Frontier) I can kinda understand the appeal, but not for a VN related gacha. I'm so glad I got away from those games though, they are a huge money pit and they only seem to stay alive because of high turnover rates and whales.

Is this a troll post? Gacha games never influenced neither of those two companies. Eushully's games were always like this, and for baseson I literally have no idea what are you talking about.

Eushully's newest game has far fewer hscenes and cgs compared to their old games.

Baseson's Kouhime Mousou Remake is just a repackaged version of their old game. They did not bother changing the story or adding new shit like they hinted.

>Baseson's Kouhime Mousou Remake is just a repackaged version of their old game. They did not bother changing the story or adding new shit like they hinted.

And how it is related to the gacha games? Their worst series -Appare tenka gomen- was way before the gacha series and they released way more games than they were doing before in last 2-3 years. Also they announced that they are making another game which'll get announced at middle 2018 as well.

+ It was a very well done repacked version, yeah they didn't add too many new scenes or change the outline of story, but in the end it was a nice remake and the last scene of the game hinted that the next route's story will change heavily because of that character.


While I dont play gacha games, for gods sake dont blame every little thing to them. They are literally unrelated, you guys are becoming too paranoid.

Call me paranoid but they keep releasing new koihime gachashit on DMM on the same timeframe. I'm sure they could use those resources into making proper eroges instead. But since I can't really prove that it's due to gacha I'll concede this one.

But the latest Eushully game's lack of hscenes is definitely gacha's fault. They put most of their artist to work on the Himegari gachashit instead of in their new game.

I dont really think gacha games need that much "resources" or anything. Its not like you'll need a writer or spend some money on it etc, just some shiny pictures, its all. Considering how baseson's artists draw one random picture ( for example this week's picture was Police uniformed Hina) at every week's P-channel and gives it to one random watcher, I dont really think that its something big enough to use at making proper eroges. Also baseson has at least 10 different artists in their company.

For Eushully, to be honest I didnt play the newest game yet so I cant say anything certain but I didnt see a single complain about lack of h-scenes at EGS. Is there really that much difference between their older games?

Well at least it seems way better than SankaiOu shit.

Look at Type-Moon, they are so far stuck up FGO's gacha ass that the Tsukihime remake is basically HL3 tier at this point. Never ever.

It probably depends on the company, but considering the potential $$$ involved I can see why studios are pumping out gacha. That steady stream of cash is probably mana to eroge developers.

Well typemoon is a special case though, FGO is literally printing the money and other gacha games are not even close to it. I'm pretty sure that those two games cant even make 1/10 of FGO, probably way more less.

>> No.17576917

>>17576903
Even if Eushully's gacha only makes 1/20th of what FGO does, that is still probably a very nice chunk of change for them. The important thing is that the IV drip of money happens over time instead of one big hit after a VN releases.

Yep and personally I'm very glad about this. VNs are not selling as good as the older days and companies need some new ways to gain money. As I said above Gacha games' costs seems very little anyway so if they can gain extra money from it and maintain themselves with that help, its a very good thing.

The point is gacha games are not costly & don't need a huge work and as long as its not something enormous as FGO it'll be a side job for eroge companies. Which means they wont get in way of eroges but will make money to the companies.

I'm seeing them as Artbooks or koihime's anthologies for example. You know that koihime has more than 100 volume of anthologies, right? They made so much money for the company as a side job, but never got in the way of eroges.

That kind of contrast does nothing but hurt the proportions. Big tits should go with big figures and vice versa. Some things are just not worth contrasting. When I look at JC I don't tell myself "mmm that's hot", but "that's disproportionate as fuck", because I look at the whole picture instead of just the vicinity around the tits. I know there's a bit of deformation leeway when it comes to stylized drawings but at some point everybody's bullshit detector ought to go off.

More like, he doesnt want to work on anything. He also has said that mahoyo will have two more sequels and they'll get released after the tsukihime remake in 2012.

5 years later and we still dont even have any information about tsukihime remake, let alone mahoyo sequels. Obviously he doesnt care about his works or nasuverse as long as he gets money from somewhere, and FGO is the perfect thing for that. He literally said that he wrote a chapter of FGO in just a day.

Maybe because its easier and can be written way faster than others or something? I cant say anything certain since I didnt read it, but I'm pretty sure that without FGO and ufotable, tsukihime remake would get released like at 2013-2014 at worst.

I'm following the tsukihime remake news for a 10 years at least, but everytime they get serious about it some new shit appears and just block the entire project.

At 2010 they were pretty serious about it, there was even a website for tsukihime remake. Then ufotable happened with Fate zero and delayed it for like 4-5 years.

At 2015 they became somewhat serious again, released the new arts for every character, a something-like-trailer video and even showed us the new teacher character. Then bam!, FGO happened and remake got delayed for a motherfucking century again.
