Re: Visual;Conference 2018 talk videos are public

If anyone is interested, I put up some HD versions of my charts and a few extras here.

I'd highly recommend checking out the playlist, there's some fascinating (and amusing) presentations.

Re: Visualing the VN Market

One thing I wonder about with your data. It relies heavily on vndb. I'm almost exclusively a OELVN fan...and on top of that, I don't tend to play many OELVNs that are modeled off of JVNs in aesthetic. For example, I started Katawa Shoujo and couldn't get very far in, yet I really love Cinders. That...

Re: Visualing the VN Market

Cool article, and that bubble network seems like a real goliath of coding and tweaking to make. My condolances. While I'd rather consider myself unbiased and unbound to genre, I too would fall heavily in one or a few categories due to not playing some of them. ANd the ones that are spread out, are ...

Re: Research paper about LGBT+ representation in visual novels

Oh if you're interested in some quantitative analysis, I've done some analysis on VN trends using the tag and character trait data on vndb (see here for my blog). I'm just in the middle of writing one such analysis at the moment using graph clustering. Here is a graph showing how frequently tags app...

That was a really cute story, I found it really relaxing to read through. I should have kept the good end for last though as wow, some of those bad ends are bleak @_@

Re: soundless - A MODERN SALEM IN REMOTE AREA - [Horror][Denpa][Kinetic][GxG][Free]

Reading this VN felt very much like watching Evangelion. There's a vast plot going on in the background you only see glimpses of, lots of religious references that turn out to be window dressing, and you've no idea what's going on half the time; but at its heart is a great emotional arc about one pe...

Oh man..... Oh man. Alright. You. You are a madman, and a genius, but still a madman. Masterfully done. A brand new account praising the twist in a VN that hasn't been released yet? I don't have any issue with friends or family of the dev sharing their thoughts on a VN, but shouldn't that relations...

Gender differences in anime ratings

http://i.imgur.com/Ffx7CJo.png I was curious how much the anime fandom split down gender lines. What do men and women prefer? Is there a difference in how they rate things? What anime most divides them? Using the profile and rating data on MyAnimeList, I tried to find out. I'm not too sure how to l...

Re: Hair Tropes in Visual Novels

Thank you for the kind feedback, I'd gotten a little disheartened at first as I wasn't sure if anyone was interested, but I'm so glad you're finding it useful~ I was hoping to look more into the the OELVN and JVN divide, see if some hair styles and colours tend to come up with often in one or the ot...

Hair Tropes in Visual Novels

Have you ever wondered what a hair style implies about a character? I did a little stats analysis using the vndb character data here if you're interested: https://bunnyadvocate.tumblr.com/post/161292880097/hair-tropes-in-japanese-media I thought a few of you here might enjoy it to better understand ...

Congrats on coming so close to finishing your VN! The artwork looks gorgeous, I wasn't expecting it to be so pretty~

I'm sure it'll be a great story, and I expect there may be some fun surprises in there (:

Re: Trends in Visual Novels

Haha thanks @Scribbles, I liked that bit too (: How about comparing multiple tags as a set instead of individual ones? I know you are kinda doing the linking in your analysis in part 2 already, but how about showing it in numbers? Like, okay just picking randomly: male protagonist + sword wielding p...
