traps aren't gay mang
when you put on a skirt, you become a girl
>tfw MS Edge can't play webms on 4chins
fo sho, senpai
The fuck are you doing with your life?
Just use Opera man.
Lilly is the prettiest girl at the ball.
>You will never pat Lilly on the head
>She will never act like she's too old for that sort of thing, but secretly likes it
But you don't understand, you are wrong, everything about your existence is incorrect, erroneous, false, especially your choice of browser.
Lilly is the prettiest girl in the world
Sorry /ksg/. I feel like I'm going to explode if I don't do this.
When does the pain end? I want to be with Lilly so badly. No, I need to be with her. But I can never fucking have her. I love her so much. I need her to support me and I want to be there for her as well. I've been trying to have a good day, but now everything's just boiled over. I want to cry, but I can't because I'm afraid my family will hear me. I don't know what to do. I've tried writing, but I'm terrible at getting my exact thoughts into words.
>your opinion is wrong because it's different from mine
Not a ruse
goddamn /cgl/ traps
The ride never ends
Oh boy. W-why did you post that?
I'm starting to feel guilty about my bad thoughts about something so pure.
Turn those feelings into passion. It's all you can do for now.
Well speaking objectively, it is inferior based on the lack of Web-M support. I would encourage you to try it. It's like a streamlined Chrome, without the bloat and massive security issues.
You cannot escape.
I'm so sorry you're going through this, Anon. I understand how you feel, but you can't let it beat you down. The worst possible thing you could to is to let your love and longing for Lilly become something destructive.
Check out the writebin, read some fics about her, but don't let it become something that causes you pain. There is too much good about Lilly for thoughts of her to be something negative.
If you really need to cry, find someplace you can be alone and let it all out, even Lilly wanted to cry at times. But she's too good of a thing to cause you sorrow.
>You cannot escape
I don't want to escape. That's the problem.
What are you up to tonight?
Not much, hurt my back pretty bad today, so just laying down.
Getting motivated, but also playing vidya. Finding a balance is easier than expected. Spending some time with other people, and bonding over said games.
I've tried a bit of writing as well. It was bloody awful, but if it helps you, do it. You don't have to post it.
On an unrelated matter, did you get the good end or the bad end on your first try?
Here you go bud
I'll be honest, sometimes when I imagine having conversations with Lilly and her replies start coming out of nowhere without really thinking about it, I get a little creeped out.
I dunno, it wasn't just a 4chan thing. Granted when it was big I was young and impressionable.
Either way it was interesting. Kinda makes me wish I went on /x/ more, but it isn't all that fun there anymore.
I tend to do that too. Maybe we're just in our heads a bit much?
Sometimes when I write, I feel like she's just telling me what to say for her or when I wonder what Lilly would think or say about something, the answer comes right away, but it isn't in my own internal 'voice'. There's been a couple times when I think about her at night right before falling asleep, I start feeling like someone is touching my face.
Not often, but when I do write about Hanako, sometimes I feel like my perspective on her is colored too much by how Lilly and Hisao see her. I have a hard time writing Hanako as herself, rather than how her friends see her.
We always knew us Lillybros were crazy, Fluff. This shouldn't come as a surprise to you.
>Sometimes when I write, I feel like she's just telling me what to say for her or when I wonder what Lilly would think or say about something
Lucky. All I hear are my memories of when my father made me feel like a worthless idiot. That's really sweat though fluff.
What if during Lilly's route Hanako had feelings for Hisao the whole time but she was too shy to tell him so she made a tulpa of him and Yamaku staff noticed her talking to Tulpisao and were convinced that she had gone insane so they got her taken to a mental institution and that's why she's not seen in Lilly's good ending
If Hanako was going to go insane by retreating into a world of imaginary friends, she would create tulpas of her parents, not some boy she just met.
>yfw Yamaku is just a figment of Hanako's imagination and her flawed attempt to create a normal school life for her while she is kept in an insane asylum after the house fire and the loss of her parents drove her crazy.
>implying her parent tulpas would follow her around school
I bet she goes to an old, derelict abandoned house (which she sees as fixed and good-as-new) on the outskirts of the city to meet her "parents" every weekend or so
>her perfect imaginary school is one she wouldn't actually be allowed to go to as she doesn't have an actual disability
holy shit she's more fucked up than I realized
I guess I should consider myself lucky, then. I'm a little closer to my waifu than a lot of people ever get to be.
At least she isn't telling me to do anything harmful like rob a convenience store or take drugs.
Oh, God, that's brilliant.
An old house in the woods outside Yamaku, abondoned and falling apart that she's recreated her whole life in.
That's why her room is so spare and there's nothing personal in it.
It's not her real home at all.
That's her self-hatred and poor self-image at work.
>implying burnt Hanako isn't just a figment of Hanako's imagination in her flawed attempt to create a crippled life for her where her abusive parents both died in a house fire
>she has to imagine a boy that will fall for her, but he doesn't even pick her route
Oh no what did you do? Didn't herniate a disc did you?
Good for you, what vidya?
Golly /ksg/ really does hate Hanako
Give it time buddy.
>At least she isn't telling me to do anything harmful like rob a convenience store or take drugs.
Would you do it if it asked you to?
I say 'it', because it's not Lilly. It's a dangerous entity, possibly demonic, taking Lilly's form.
>the house fire turned her into a lonely vagrant on the streets and Yamaku is just a result of her extreme dependency on huffing paint or other hallucinogens
>These crackpot ideas for Hanako's story are better than her actual final route
I can offer to write but I wouldn't be comfortable with the subject material.
Technically I already did a bad end Shizune fic years back. Not sure if it's still in the pastepin or not.
I say that I hate Misha, and she desrves to suffer, but I don't really mean it.
I'm keeping my cruel file names, though.
Ello, friends! I haven't posted much here in the past, but I thought you all might get something out of seeing this.
It's my first tattoo. I got it done for free on what essentially amounts to a whim on Halloween. I think I might do something more with it in the future. Maybe text, "everyone has damage" or something; or perhaps coloring the heart in with an ECG with a long Q-T interval.
It's funny because I'm probably not as much "into" KS as most of the rest of you folks. I've only played through once (I had the good luck to only get good endings, even while playing blind.). I think I will again soon, though, maybe starting tonight, to remember why I got this permanent ink in me, eheh!
I rationalized it as, "being cringe-y is occasionally a part of who I am. There's nothing wrong with my skin showing that." And the thing is that it doesn't even have to be a KS thing in the future. A bandaged heart will always have meaning.
Actually you're right, disregard that shitty idea. Thanks for herding me back in.
>And the thing is that it doesn't even have to be a KS thing in the future. A bandaged heart will always have meaning.
Yeah, but what If someone asks you about it now?
>"oh it's from this anime game about crippled Japanese schoolgirls that you can have sex with, I talk about it all the time with basement dwellers, cosplayers, and British people on 4chan"
>Answering questions honestly even though it'll reveal your power level
The only people right now who even know I got it are my sister (another fan) and my quidditch teammates (similar power level people). When other people find out about it I can either just go hipster mode, "it's an obscure fandom you probably haven't heard of."
Anon, I can't walk two steps without accidentally raising flags for random girls' routes.
>implying I'm not using hyperbole
You can be their katawa, anon.
Just DOOOO IT
Calm down, Hanako is still my favorite.
To be honest, I don't think I belong to /ksg/, I played it years ago and the only route that I remember is Hanako's.
What do you lads talk about here? Enlighten me.
Konbanwa, /ksg/. How are you?
Circlejerk and discuss unfortunate girls.
I've been awake about 36 hours and feel like I'm starting to get a little delusional.
Why have you stayed awake for so long? Sleeping's the easiest way to escape reality.
Heavy eyes and restless hearts
Here we are today
But will our hearts be near or far
When we part ways?
The future is grey, a hazy blur
Uncertainly is rife
Today is all that's for sure
When so short is one's life
But we can change that world
Of black and white
A splash of color
A spark of light
Post shitty poetry about your waifu
kek, that's pretty damn funny, doesn't the devs plan to do a KS2 or they dropped the idea or there wasn't an interest to begin with?
I've seen a lot of trips here for the 3 or 4 times I checked this general, do you guys just discuss the game or talk about unrelated things?
>do you guys just discuss the game or talk about unrelated things?
The devs hate the game, they hate us, they hate you
Like what? What are the trips' favorite girls though? Fug, you guys are at the #2833 already
You know how sometimes you write or draw something, and then you look back at it a year later and wonder how you ever created such a cringe-worthy thing?
We all love the game, and love each other though <3
Mostly unrelated things but now is around a character birthday and there seems to be some hanako discussion ongoing.
Rescue me beautiful guardian angel,
I love you.
Including that would be as autistic as just listing all the trips, names, and avatarfags. You don't just put people in the general on it unless they've become a cultural part of it like Homura or PTSD.
Ask >>121124524 for the complete list.
I don't know if has edited the Wiki yet.
Just in case I'll post a link here.
Although it's most likely from 2013
First draft, reply to add more.We have 3 weeks. Please don't insult each others waifu
You guys like unfortunate girls, right?
I'm going to bed, night /ksg/.
>That feel when you will never taste the french vanilla flavor of Lilly's lips
>That feel when you will never give a sleeping Emi a piggyback ride home
>That feel when you will never feel Rin's lips caress your hands as you feed her oranges
>That feel when you will never gaze at the stars with Shizune
>That feel when you will never wake up next to Hanako and take her into a loving embrace
>That feel when you will never feel a sleeping Misha press her soft body against you as you kiss her candy scented hair
"First and only playthrough" ???
What makes you so sure of that?
I'm disappointed in you Anon. You came here and lost your nerve. TURN THOSE SCENES ON RIGHT NOW
Also the other routes are objectively better than Hanako's route in a lot of ways.
God dammit Anon you're making me irrationally mad about this.
Hanako is quite possibly my favourite girl and her H-scene is vital to the whole point oh her good end, even if it isn't the best to watch.
And even though Hanako may be my favourite girl I still played and really enjoyed all the other routes.
Jesus Christ I'm an autist.
Morning mate, how are you doing?
I still dont get why he would've said that. Any retard could've figured out that her father is
Want to write a filk-song about Natsume, based on "Betty Davis Eyes," called "Souseiseki Eyes."
(Also, because word-filters.)
Bit sad that you fell for something that obvious. And I still dont know what I'm going to do with my life know that I know I'll drop out of uni after this term.
But breakfast first, always important!
I'm pissed off I responded man.
>I still dont know what I'm going to do with my life know that I know I'll drop out of uni
You're dropping out? Why's that?
If it's not too personal a question, that is.
And breakfast is a very important meal. You should eat it every day.
No, I think I'll send Misha to investigate ...
I just cant continue living this life anymore. I'm lying to everyone around me that I'm happy and having fun studying, while gliding deeper than ever into depression.
I'm just not cut out for studying, I need to do things practical. I was forced to make a decision on short-hand notice and made the wrong one. I'll probably have lost two years from that soon, but I cant continue this lie anymore.
I often skip directly to lunch because of waking up so late. But even when not, cant eat much on morning anymore.
Are you the depressed Lillyfag?
Sorry if you aren't.
In any case that sounds tough man. Do you have any idea where you want to go in the job market?
Would you go for an apprenticeship or something?
Anyway lads, I'm calling it a night. See you guys tomorrow.
No, I'm not, thank god for that. Been studying omp science till now, but it's killing me. I'm good at it, but I dont want to be anymore. Probably gonna do some internships before, but I want to help people in some way. Physiotherapist maybe.
Sleep well anon, dream of your best girl
rather be a baka than a candy-assed roody-poo.
spooking scaring skellingtons
Who's this artist? Looks madly familiar.
Better application for a word filter: fix it in /a/ when the baka Anon-kun misspell the word as "sempai."
Like about a third of the fansubbers do ...
Cool. I enjoy the sight of Misha on her knees [soiler]crying ...............[/spoiler]
baka Anon-kun = /a/tards on /a/
sempai = 'tard spelling of senpai.
"Sempai" probably means something really strange or stupid when it's flipped back over into MoonSpeak, but who cares...
Type ' Senpai ' and we're okay ... maybe.
>tfw Anon who wants crying Mishas posts a pic that shows how beautiful she can be when she's just being serious ...
Good morning, /ksg/. How are you today?
I suppose I'll just be playing vidya today.
>I can disregard morality and turn the gaming industry into even bigger piece of shit because I do that in the quiet of my own home.
I just want what's best for you and me, lad.
Practically all of the social platform games.
Like that famous rip-off of Harvest Moon, Farmville.
No, you're the one that doesn't understand, even touching those games gives them attention thus making them more popular, which then in turn brings more people paying for that shit.
Or you could do like me, and play almost only Stalker. There are some many mods out there and they don't stop coming.
Honestly, if a f2p game is slightly less shit/more fun than 99% of games released the traditional way, then I'll play that game. Instead of bitching about f2p ruining everything, maybe the industry should put some effort into releasing decent fucking games more than once every 5 years.
Well, f a m, it's been wonderful hanging with you, now, I have the Need. The Need for Speed.
>Instead of bitching about f2p ruining everything, maybe the industry should put some effort into releasing decent fucking games more than once every 5 years.
Why would they make good games when people still buy the shit ones en masse. It just doesn't make sense economically. The userbase just has to get it's shit together.
I have no idea what you're talking about, tbeh.
I tried playing that game. I found it to be really clunky and I didn't like the UI too much. I guess the mods would fix that though. The world felt really empty too, but maybe it's supposed to be that way.
I'm sure it's a fine game that can stand on its own, but I know there are some games out there that really can't stand on their own. I was kind of excited for Fallout 4, watched the trailer at E3 but didn't really follow it after. Then I saw these recent leaks showing how the graphics, animations, and voice acting and writing aren't very great. Obviously graphics can be fixed by mods, and so can other things like gameplay. I'm not really gonna judge the gameplay yet though, it could be fun. I'm just sick of Bethesda releasing games on hideously old engines and expecting modders to "fix" it.
We talk to each other about life and shit. We may have different social circle, and passions, but we all have Katawa Shoujo in common. Speaking of which, I'll try and make a KS logo vinyl in Need for Speed. Look for a JDM car with the logo on XBOne.
Maybe Stalker just isn't for everybody.
I really don't know why would anyone be excited for a Bethesda game, especially their Fallout, after the shit they pulled in the past.
I don't have high standards I guess.
I have pretty fond memories of playing and exploring Fallout 3. I played Skyrim quite a bit too but then I got really sick of it. I think I got excited for Fallout 4 because of New Vegas, but yeah, that's a different dev.
That's the exact opposite of me to be honest. You should try holding a grudge sometime, hate is fun.
Yeah, it's so sad that well have to wait another few years for Obsidian to make the next semi-decent Fallout.
Time for some Rin love now ...
It's still early morning here. Might take a shower in a bit then sleep some more.
I'm okay too.
almost 5pm here and it's so dark already. Looks nice, i may go for a walk.
Sounds good, hope you'll have a neat dream
Last night, Lilly was in my dream. All I can remember is us walking through the city while holding hands.
That's a sweet one.
More and more katawa dreams keep poppin up here, looks like the Gods finally listened to our prayers.
I'm sure most of our prayers would be for the katawas to be real, though.
imagine that you're hanging out with hanako
and you decide you want to go in for the kill
so you move your hand a little closer to hers, and you touch your pinky finger to hers
as you do so, you half-expect her to shy away, but she doesn't
I only want to be lewd with Lilly though
>read ks like 2 years ago
>frequented ksg until like thread #1500
>slowly forgot about it and mai waifu
>fall in love with a girl like 3 months ago
>4 years older than me, really funny, kinda short and thin
>we become a pair and we just broke up yesterday (she's leaving England in a week)
>mfw I just realised I fancied her because she reminded me of Akira
>Imagine you're sitting quietly with Lilly in private.
>You decide you want to go in for the kill
>You take your pants off and wave your dick around just inches in front of her face
>She doesn't even flinch because she can't see shit
>not directly smooching her
What are you, a faggot?
That interruption was rude and you know it, lad.
I didn't post the 'dude' one as much as I wanted to.
>tfw was in the thread this was posted
That really was a nice birthday present for that one anon.
look on the bright side, at least we don't get more shitty forced drama with hanako this way. you might think an epilogue with her would make you feel warm and end with a beautifully illustrated scene and a tearful "I love you" from her big bright smile, but it would obviously not be like that at all.
The biggest box, of the highest quality!
C'mon guys we're about to die.
All main katawas are need to play so either I spread them all in first team or paired them in second-layer team, what do you think? Also we need Goalkeepers.
/KSG/ I can't move on I need help I can't fucking believe It was released three years ago. I have a date in two weeks. Through I was raised in understanding family and I could come and break down for no fucking reason and they would understand. I doubt she would. She's a pharmacologist- I thing she would understand
Having Lily as a GK would be fine aswell for me atleast.
>Shizune Note 2
Team Captain I would say, she's really good at ordering around people.
Musical genius or Anon's mom
She kind of reminds me of my own mother, might be different for you guys.
">tfw no Miki-route"
What is Homura doing in Yamaku?
We are still seven players short. Wanna add old men to the team?
About Rin, we could edit the sleeve. Let me see if we could modify her head skills.
That Misha x Homura thing you posted here. Well, I saw them the first time in /ksg/ on December 2013.
That was Kenji, not me.
But I have seen it before.
With the last update? Yeah I think so, but on Twitter they mentioned that there's still a possibility for KS2 or support for the original one, plus they didn't stop their activity so we could squeeze some more content from these guys.
I thought Homura was in there for a completely different reason.
Oh yeah, Kenji and Kenjibro were two different trips.
Which one was the one with the 3rd highest post count again?
Sleeping Beauty or Dreamy pilot
Muscle girl or Clumsy Crutch
