    VN Reading Club March 2016: Ayakashibito



    A record low people of 15 voted!!! But hopefully all 15 of you are actually committed to reading the visual novel. Ayakashibito won the vote with 8 of the votes.


    Ayakashibito: https://vndb.org/v646



    In face of human technological advancement during the Meiji Restoration, the youkai of Japan were forced to make a hard decision:
    1) To remain as youkai and watch over the land
    2) To return to the netherworld
    3) To give up their power and status as youkai and live amongst humans.

    While there were some that chose otherwise, the majority of the youkai decided it was best to become human. It was tough, but as time passed these youkai were able to blend in with the human world and live peacefully amongst them.

    However, blood is thicker than water. The offspring of these youkai displayed the powerful abilities of their ancestors in times of great anxiety, often manifesting in horrible and dangerous ways, and were labeled by society as monsters.
    Officially their condition was named "Acquired Systemic Special Heredity variety Syndrome", or "ASSHS" for short and treated as a non-contagious illness, but the common people began to refer to them as Jinyous (half-youkai) nevertheless.

    Of these Jinyous, most were sent to Kamizawa City: an isolated urban area walled off from the rest of Japan to keep all the Jinyous together and away from the human population. However, the ones that were deemed especially dangerous were sent to a medical facility on an uncharted island near the shores of Japan where they would be under constant surveillance.

    Takabe Ryouichi was one of those who were sent to said island at the age of five. This is a story about him along with the girl called Suzu, his only friend on the island, escaping to Kamizawa city to live a normal life. What they didnít expect was that Suzu carried a secret that attracted much unwanted attentionÖ


    You got 4 days to download the game and finish up last month's novel Noble Works.

    Discuss all the lovely things you have about the visual novel here. Who is the real waifu. Please use spoiler tags as necessary.

    Well sat down and got about an hour or so in, I like the way the story sets itself up so far. Not feeling the soundtrack though I must admit, had to turn it down. Can't say much about the characters this early in but Suzu seems interesting enough. Hope you don't mind a lot of little short posts as I'm going to have to read this one is small bits as I find the time.

    I played about a half hour myself but I agree that the soundtrack seems very meh so far. I was definitely expecting something better.

    And feel free to make as many short posts as you'd like!

    I'm more annoyed by the tiny resolution than the bland soundtrack. At least the music can be change.

    It is the eye strain that bothers me. I'm already a bit near-sighted from reading it for about an hour.

    It is a game that shows its age but the story so far I have no complaints about.

    I got in and played for about an hour and I see what you mean about the soundtrack. It isn't bad, it's just that it's not that good either. It also seems to have a lot of action in it compared to many of the VNs I've read (not that I've read much VNs). The small size of the window also kind of bothers me but putting it into fullscreen fixes that issue. So far, it seems quite promising.

    Just found out that another user has a similar name to my other account so I created a new one so as to not confuse anyone or cause any trouble. So I wanted to let you guys know I'll be posting on this account instead. (My old account's name was "SomeGuy", which was very similar to the name of someone else named "Some guy")

    Haha very odd coincidence.

    I'm going to try to read a bit more tonight. Haven't read anymore since I last posted.
