WE NEED MORE LIGHT AND FLUFFY STUFF!

#1 Post by AngelicCarrot » Thu Dec 18, 2008 9:09 pm

Yes. We need more cute, innocent fluff that makes the big boys cringe.

There's only about 4-5 titles with fluff in them that I know of, so...

MOAR catgirls, panties, ribbons, bunny suits, sparkles, happy stories, magical GIRLS, shiney things... MOE.

Well I like the idea, myself :) (and yes, I am male LOL) about the only genre I DON'T like is horror - mystery is fine, just not horror! There's someone in the boards that is the Defender of Moe Justice - is that Samu-kun? But yeah, I like the idea of having more light and fluffy stuff around :)

Defender of Moe Justice
I do believe that is M12's job. Although he seems to have retired and become a vhinobi.

Most of what I write is pretty sweet and light romance, but I haven't really delved into the world of the super cute pink sparklies. I guess I wouldn't mind writing some if I could come up with a decently original story, but I don't think I could illustrate such cuteness. o.o

WE NEED MORE DARK AND MOODY STUFF!

..yeah. That's my option. I don't have much interest in light and fluffy stuff, never did. It just doesn't work for me most of the time. My favorite animes are Higurashi and Jigoku Shoujo.. that says a bit about my tastes. ^^'

And you could always have cute and sparkly character designs and lighthearted moments in a darker story. Paradoxally enough I don't think I can pull off dark stories too well. x.x

...interesting.

I'm in the process of creating a universal GAR feel to all my future projects.

I like MOE like any fangirl or boy, but I don't think I can pull MOE off based on my experiences, which are mainly hardcore GAR experiences.

Since you'll need a real consistent set of rose-colored glasses to compose stories told from the perspective of innocent children where good is good and evil is evil.

You'll need someone good at writing childrens books, not an otaku. Sure an otaku can come up with that stuff, but if it's a typical 20 or 30-something male writing about adolescent cuteness, that's just... not... right. You'll need a girl to write and draw for those kinds of works, and most western girls into anime would rather work on Boys Love than MOE.

Hmmmm... Light and dark... WE NEED MORE VAMPIRE CATGIRLS!!! CUTE AND CUDDLY SERIAL KILLERS! SPARKLY BLOOD AND GUTS!

Geez... It's been a looooooooooong night at work. >.<

Moe, eh? Yeah, we need more moe. You can't have a good story without at least a few elements of light and airy. Just doesn't feel right without them. However, I've given up on trying to write pure light and fluffy stuff, stuffs up the sinuses.

...dang it... Now I've got ideas. Stupid lack of sleep... I think I'm gonna be trying something with a little more glitter. Considering I ship in three months and have two active projects on the books, it might be difficult... BUT WE NEED MORE VAMPIRIC SCHOOL-CATGIRLS WITH MAGICAL POWERS, DANG IT!!! :evil:

I am about as far from a boys love fan as you could get. But moe things make me melt. ^_^;;

Various sparkly ideas:

-Typical shoujo manga. One average girl, lots of cute guys. Romance.
-Magical girl. Save the world.
-Fantasy world. Make friends with fairies or something. @.@
-Moe moe moe. Slice of life. Solve cute problems like finding a missing cat or making cookies.

How do you make your games? I see. Thank you for the prompt replies, but it is my considered opinion that you're doing it wrong inefficiently because I am a perfushenal professional. Do it my way this way and we can all ascend VN Nirvana together while allowing me to stroke my ego you will improve much faster. Also, please don't forget to thank me for this constructive critique or I will cry and bore you to death respond appropriately with a tl;dr rant discourse of epic adequately lengthy proportions. - Sarcasm Veiled in Euphemism: Secrets of Forum Civility by lordcloudx (Coming soon to an online ebook near you.)
