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...

Re: Love Paradox [GxG, Yuri Game Jam, Time Travel]

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...

Re: Doki Doki Literature Club! [BxG] Free Download

If anyone is interested, I wrote up some more detailed thoughts about DDLC here: https://bunnyadvocate.tumblr.com/post/165810990262/thoughts-on-doki-doki-literature-club . TLDR: really great, polished game with fantastic technical execution, but it sacrifices some characterisation for it (although d...

Re: Doki Doki Literature Club! [BxG] Free Download September 2017

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 ...

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...

Re: Trends in Visual Novels

*Tries to suppress all the awful things that Japan likes that allows the decretion of bodily fluids as a fetish to be a reoccurring top 10 thing.* A good, although much darker post. You can tell that VNs have had decades to find their roots in many fetishes and preferences that wouldn't and couldn'...

Thank you everyone for your kind words. It really helps fire me up to get to work on my next analysis post~ Some interesting numbers, although I didn't expect horror to be such an unpopular genre. D: While it does appear to be less popular than many other genres, bear in mind that around a third of ...
