Granted this is the worst place on the planet to ask why anyone BUYS games, but this is a legitimate thing I don't understand. Even PIRATING them doesn't make terribly much sense to me.

Even a regular VN with a good story is difficult to justify paying $40 or more for given you'd be hard-pressed to find a hardback book for that much, but I can at least understand WANTING it for the story and characters.

But an Ecchi or Porn VN? At best they're a CYOA attached to an image gallery, but usually they're just mediocre erotic fiction novels with even more mediocre art. The story is never meaningful, the characters are never interesting, and the art is certainly not worth spending money on. Shit, you could get a better experience by cascading browser tabs of Gelbooru and fanfiction.net

Then again, I don't get ecchi in general. Even in actual games, like Senran Kagura. It just sacrifices far too much in order to add the ecchi and ends up being a subpar experience otherwise.

Buying japanese porno VNs is very far down on the list of actions that support the state tbh. And it's not about being shamed at all but simply giving money for what you like. For example if you want to see films about thing X then you should pay to see them, that's how capitalism works.

Ironically I think one of the reasons there's so much nigger and womyn of stronkness and they are pushed in film and games is because those audiences still pay for media. Nobody cares about the opinon of people who doesn't pay.

>Why buy?

Because visual novels are so niche than your money actually goes further to support those involved in bringing it over and will definitely express to Nip devs that there is a market for more if purchased.

>Even a regular VN with a good story is difficult to justify paying $40 or more

Could say the same with more 12hr action games going for $60. Why bother?

Again, it's about showing support and broadening the market. If the translators are good (PQube, MangaGamer) then it's worth tossing the cash–is the mentality of people who buy VNs.

You also seem to have no idea of Otome VNs, which are plenty erotic at points but are essentially an ascended romance novel/game hybrid. You can also learn a lot more about women's desires from an otome game than say 50 Shades of Tripe and can learn how to write a character that will resonate and appeal to female readers/players.

Mind you, otome games and nukige (sex games) are similar in that they rarely have any genuine story but there's some games with good narrative turns, among other games. Pics related

Buying a Japanese copy is asinine, though, and rarely does anything. However, spending cash on official translations will always have a point and always make an impression (at least until they start capitulating to the cultural marxists, which seems like it won't but you never know).

>At best they're a CYOA attached to an image gallery

And games are dancing code on a screen, Myst is a walking sim, movies are just people playing pretend (after getting raped on the casting couch), etc. You can do that with a lot of things.

I used to think that too until I actually played them. Though boiling it down like that really removes the whole point of combining the narrative, voice acting, music, and visual style into a cohesive whole.

>but usually they're just mediocre erotic fiction novels

Again, player choice = game. No choice = electric picture book.

>with even more mediocre art.

If you think Kara no Shoujo has mediocre art there is no hope for you anon.

>The story is never meaningful, the characters are never interesting, and the art is certainly not worth spending money on.

Euphoria, Kara no Shoujo (and the sequel), Rance, etc. Also Kyonyuu Fantasy/Big Tit Fantasy is fun with good art. What is wrong with you?

>Even in actual games

If it's not a kinetic VN (no choices, just an electronic picture book) then it's an actual game. Not gonna get into this, though, because autistic screeching will commence from other anons.

So TL;DR You already know all this. You either just wanted to complain about something you don't like or you wanted to have a recommendation thread.

it shows you never played a good porn game then. the reason why i liked monster girl quest it was exactly that. i played the game expecting a subpar game but turned out better than a lot of serious games. another exaple is kamidori. kamidori actually is the perfect example of a porn game done right, the sex scenes, give characters more personality, and also make releationship more genuine.

tldr ecchi is just another spice you can give a game that can make it better or worse (like horror, gore, etc)

Her legs are open, the tray could have went in between them if she fell with them spread out like that. So she could fall back at a significant angle, the tray could fall in between her legs, then she could roll back forward onto the tray. What would make her fall though? Did she get surprised by someone in front of her (the viewer)? The glass looks like it just had water in it so it may have not gotten too dirty.

Certainly. Take Collar X Malice for example. In it you play as a girl who is new to the police force (this "newcomer to power/foreign element") who ends up abducted and collared with a poisonous contraption she must keep hidden while playing the villains' game alongside a secret task force of police officers, ex-cops, detectives and a profiler. Also a random nosey JapCIA.

Every single man is stronger than you, more experienced than you and is smarter than you–except for the "adorkable" (as they call it now) chuuni detective who wears an eyepatch because he thinks it looks cool, and yet even in his hyperbolic stupidity he shines with cunning at times and proves himself wholly physically reliable.

Take the case of Catbro for one example just from this cast alone:

Catbro here is very teasing and carries a sinister air. At one point he pins the heroine to the wall, hand-over-wrist, and grins as he comments how foolish she was to walk alone into a man's apartment, what kind of things he could do to her, and how she needs to wisen up. He lets her leave, she's angry, and later it is revealed that he doesn't understand why.

The heroine also meets up with other girls in the police station who have their own little gang who drink after hours and exchange stories of how they HATE Catbro. He's a jerk. He says mean things. He acts so conceited like he knows everything. The heroine joins them in a diner only to end up seeing him in the booth right behind her. Awkward, but he acts unfazed, rather interested in what they were talking about. This leads to a ruckus and the girls leave.

Heroine gets drunk, passes out, wakes up being headpat on his lap.

She stumbles upon him tending to stray cats and notices the earnest smile on his face.

She wonders why he has such a fascination with cats and even wears cat ears.

As his story progresses you realize that he's not what he seems to be–he's basically autistic. He doesn't understand human interaction very well and smiles so slyly because he thinks smiling–feigning a show of sincere emotion–makes him more relatable. He shows his neutral expression when she asks and he looks like a severe man, so he goes back to smiling.

The more he interacts with her, the more he becomes confused. The facade of slyness slips and his mental programming cracks. Heroine finds him actually crying and uttering odd things on the stairwell. She helps him collect himself.

In the end it comes down to adhereing his brainwashing from when he was an abused trained child or giving himself up. He burns the terrorist world and waits in prison for his crimes until the day he can be reunited with the one who taught him genuine love.

So what did we learn from >>16069935 ?

We learned that a female readers/players enjoy

>enigmatic

>dominant

>dangerous

>troubled

men who can/does

>fight (and win) for them

>protect them

but who need them.

In truth the world's idea of "female hero" is faulty and not what female readers want. What they want, if they are to self-insert, is to have the least powerful yet most important role. This is why most YA novels with female protags have them being crucial to the plot and world by virtue of their birth, blood, etc. but not their skill. The skill belongs to their male counterpart.

The idea we get is of a "tender diamond and tower shield" as I say, that the towering shield weathers all blows to protect the diamond yet only serves a purpose because of the diamond. Sound familiar? To not be the hero but to be the hero's support, to not be the one to fell the dragon but to be the one who holds and heals the wounded dragonslayer–_this is the essence of femininity.

Mind you, not every guy in Otome games is "dangerous" or like Catbro there.

>Seaweed Head (green hair) is actually a snooty hacker who looks down on the heroine because he thinks she's not taking it seriously and will serve no help to the investigation.

>Eye-patch-Lad is a goofball who tries his hardest to keep apace the smarter members and secretly has that feel when no gf.

>CIA is actually an incredibly capable Columbo-type, pretending to be more oblivious than he really is. So on.

>Regular Guy is the big brother type in the group who handles basically everything and has long experience on the force put to good use.

Each man is capable and entirely self-sufficient BUT for his heart.

>Seaweed Head lost his mother to gun violence and is terrified of losing someone else, and freezes up at gunfire.

>Eye-patch-Lad lost his partner the villains and has been trying to avenge his death while retaining some semblance of joy in his life

>CIA wants to find someone he can give his life to protect–no literally he WANTS TO DIE but he wants to die protecting someone he finds important

>Regular Guy really sucks but has a past that he fears anyone finding out, especially you

A woman wants to be needed. She wants to be the heart in the man's breast, the strength in his bones, the breath in his lungs. A woman wants to be more than desired–she wants to be the answer to a man's prayers, and in this sense she wants to be the catalyst for his change.

I'm sure a lot of these traits I attribute to "women" in this post sounds familiar, almost like stereotypes of female behavior. Why do they go for the bad guy? Why do they cling to men who clearly don't need them? It's more than "the struggle to get and win his attention/affection". It is an unguided heart's desire to be woman.

Write a character like this who can fulfill this basic desire in women and you have yourself a beloved man.

Those are stereotypes on female behaviour but stereotypes are not untrue, they are simplifications. Unfortunately, that's an ideal of feminity and real females do not adhere to those principles more often than not being selfish bitches instead of supportive beings.

And just to point one thing, the problem with this is that the females actually often HATE the kind of characters that are portrayed as self-inserts.

Other "tropes" which delight the female reader/player's heart:

>the hero rescuing them from danger

Yes, even rape. It's a huge one. Don't listen to feminists, women love this.

>the hero almost-but-not-quite going berserk on those who threatened her but STOPPING when she asks him to

It's not a power-play but an affirmation that she alone can quell his fire. Her plea whispered in a storm can not only still be heard but can still his hand, not so much because she has "power" over him but because he loves her.

>impressing him with her cooking/being impressed by her cooking

Either-or, not any middle ground. Either she sucks and it's funny so he cooks for her and he impresses her, or he's over the moon like a Looney Toon over the taste of her buttered toast.

>breaking down in fragility or doubt only to have her help him recover

If you've been paying attention you know why this is an almost guaranteed event to always occur in every route of every otome game.

>coming to his senses because of her

Something like the second point but moreso about his change in mindset. He wants to die, he wants to kill, he wants this or that BUT then SHE comes along and changes his life by giving him new meaning and purpose and a brighter outlook and etc.

>flustered man

A blushing, embarrassed or (depending on if it fits the character) blushing man is a huge plus. Why? Because he's the most high Test wall-breaking intelligent hero with a slick grin/stoic seriousness/joking smile which suddenly cracks when he starts "catching feelings" (only for her)

>teasing sex

Just tease it. No actual touching or anything. Maybe finally have it right at the end but don't get graphic, just poetic and very breathy

>pin you against the wall

It can be accidental but more often it is either because he's so "dangerous" (ooooh~) or he's a very serious man who's trying to get her to shut up or else they will both be killed. Being pinned is exciting but you have to pull back at the right time or it gets too much

>talking about the future

Lets her know this story doesn't end when the story ends (which keeps them affectionate for the character long after the novel ends, too).

Just a few extra points. Again, all best exemplified in otome games. Otome games are also less lurid and marxified than YA novels, too, but there's plenty of shared traits between for obvious reasons.

These allude to one of the major common threads in female fiction but don't quite make it explicit: very sexually aggressive, to the point of implying the threat of rape, but without much or any actual danger. The character is just teasing, or too honorable to follow through, or they understand the female character so well that they'll push farther than she says but not farther than she actually wants, or they have some kind of magical restraint against it, etc, etc. Menace without teeth.

Rape (the fantasy of it, anyway) hits a lot of those buttons: the man has all the power, but he becomes so drawn to the woman that he can't help himself- he has to take her by force. Of course, the man is extremely attractive, so by being raped she's effectively proven herself more desirable than all the girls he could easily have instead.

Well I didn't say they adhere to it just that they fantasize about it. Truth be told very few men adhere to the qualities of true self-sufficient masculinity as well and have long confused it with degenerative base behavior. Few women do the same with femininity, however both fantasize about possessing the ideal partner, hence the true impact of such characters.

>And just to point one thing, the problem with this is that the females actually often HATE the kind of characters that are portrayed as self-inserts.

They say that but they don't mean that. Twilight would not have been a monumental phenomenon if that was true and that's just from recent memory.

Why do they say that, then? Because that's what the societal herd echoes and you see how that herd tramples those who run against it. Plus cultural conditioning from an early age.

>>16070080

I would say Collar X Malice though I dropped it on the true end route. You might like it. Period Cube was pretty good, and Amnesia was pretty good all around.

Rape is rape, anon. Being seduced isn't being raped. Unless she was hypnotized or mind-controlled, then you can argue that one, but the context has to be rape and that carries all the emotional and descriptive baggage of rape. Even something like when Asuka got mind-raped by the space geomatry in Evangelion–that is rape. It's not actual rape but carries the proper context of rape.

No, no it is not. The definition of rape has been very muddied, and the definition of forced can be muddied as well. If a woman really wants it deep down, a guy that is not very subtly forcing himself on her will be seen as just aggressive or persistent, whereas if she didn't actually, it's unwanted and therefore rape. It's really not cut and dry.

If you read one of them, the "rape" always falls into one of two categories. Either the woman actually wants it and is only holding back out of some sense of duty or a similar unwanted burden and the man pushes through because he knows it's what she wants despite her words, relieving her of the social difficulties of saying yes; or it's forceful rape and it's presented as bad.

She says she doesn't want it, he gives it to her anyway. I'm reminded of a conversation I had with someone about fanfiction- they mentioned they enjoyed fiction with "noncon". That turns out to mean "non-consensual", but for some reason that isn't rape. Women certainly enjoy stories about being "ravished" or "taken" but not "raped", despite it all basically meaning the same thing.

The difference is that in "ravishment" what a word the woman always wants it. She might not know that she wants it, or might not want to acknowledge that she wants it, but she does and the fact that the man knows better than her that she wants it is proof that he's deeply emotionally invested in her, and the fact that he's willing to push her on it is proof that she's desirable.

Men and women are not the same, the reason men would want to get raped is because they like sex and are naturally promiscuous because there isn't much physical investment after sex because they don't get pregnant (although there is more psychological investment).

Women would want to get raped because they like assertive men, and they also know about how psychologically invested a man will be after having sex with a woman, thus will bind him to her. So they will read books about a billionaire raping a woman they self-insert toward so that they feel like they hit the jackpot. The difference between Jeff Bezos ex-wife and other women is minimal, but she'll get 60 billion dollars because she hit the jackpot. Women also like assertiveness, are also trying to protect their reproduction by acting guarded, so they can just act guarded all the time, give out mixed signals to the guy they actually like so that they have plausible deniability to not look like a slut, and if he has enough of this shit and breaks through then at the same time he proves his assertiveness, proves his link to her, actually make himself vulnerable to her because she can just report him and end him, surprise her (so she feels tingles), feels wanted and she doesn't have to do a thing so it removes work from her. Women don't like pursuing men much, they will only do it when they see a lot of other women pursuing the guy.

Exploiting men's provider instinct, good thing our (((merchants))) still didn't master this skill and feminists are actually forming a bulwark against it (can't use sexy women in ads). It's actually where the real consumerist money is, women make 18 trillions but spend 28 trillions, less and less are getting married and they get more and more useless college degrees plus debt so their spending powers will plummet while men will accumulate lots of wealth they do not know what to do with.

There are good men, there are no good women, first men get more time to unfuck themselves from (((their))) control and are more disposed toward doing so, women are too scared to even think outside of the box and if they even succeed at it they are then in their 30s and too old. Men are targeted with drugs, scorn and rejection, which is negative reinforcement, women are targeted with flowery language, encouragement and groups which is positive reinforcement which is much more potent. The "you can have it all" they get told when they are 6 years of age triggers their hypergamy instinct, the alcohol and social pressure during teens pushes them to become damaged goods for the rest of the lives before they are even adults. The subtle but very present sense that they will lose all relationships if they have children, even though their children could be their strongest most useful relationship they could have keeps them from acting toward making a stable family, this acts as a devilish inversion of reality. Men on the other hand have much more chances of ending up good, dependable human beings if they avoid being damaged by those women.

That reminds me of an argument my sister made in defense of baby its cold outside. She argued that when the song was written it was during a time period when women were not allowed to say yes. That saying yes to staying the night with someone even if both of you were on board was taboo because it was not proper to admit you wanted to have sex with a man.

It wasn't that at all, it was because falling for the seductions of a smooth talking man who would say anything to sleep with you and then cool off on you right after was a mistake as a woman. Men and women of character value integrity and they knew where they stood, not that there weren't foolish people, but they called it like it was when someone failed to value themselves. Women are the ones who used to decide mores like that anyway, since they raised the children up and instilled these values. Ah, for a time when women who weren't complete fools weren't ignored.

That would be most normalfags who simply watch the most popular shows. The only anime fans who need to leave are the infiltrators that want to turn anime into the same garbage that is now western cartoons. The ones that complain about women being "over sexualized", loli needs to be removed, or can't understand that some anime are complete nonsense and don't take themselves seriously. Usually known as SJWeebs.

>>16080049

Definitely not. To some extent, VNs have to rely on their visuals and sounds to make up for the writing. I think visual novels could do much better in the sound department. They rely more on quality soundtracks than good enviornmental sounds and SFX for many actions.

There's nothing wrong with buying anime figures. There's a problem with people who spend ALL their spare income on waifufaggotry. But I can't say it's entirely their fault, the yellow jews are very skilled at this. Ever notice how an anime girl gets sexier and sexier figures as time goes on?

I'll grant you that a lot of VNs are the equivalent of trashy romance novels, but those are still novels.

The investment I get into the characters increases the eroticism when it finally comes time to break them into my breeding bitch.

That being said I only pirate VNs. Why would anyone pay for porn?

While I respect them for not backing down on their censorship stance (as far as I know), neither are very good at translations.

PQube censored Valkyrie Drive. Also no translations are good.

That was the ages thing right? Because to partial credit they didn't bother trying to hack it up for Australia or Germany where it was banned.

There are some good translations, but most are garbage.

7-11 and some other convenience store are going to stop selling hentai magazines.

Aye, the reasons were apparently for women, children, and foreigners.

Always the fucking children. But I'm more disappointed that they're concerned for us when most tourists, while not going there for loli, are for the things that make them a unique and wonderful place.

The figurine was remarkably cheap and VERY high quality.

That was one of hte reason I finally tipped over to buying it. I swear to God, I spent the entire day in Ikebukero and the entire time I was going "So I really need this? Should I really waste money of this? I'm an old fart, should I really be buying animu?"

It doesn't even make sense to sell hentai at 7-11. Think about it. If you were going to 7-11, would it be to buy porn? If you were going to buy hentai, you would get it from a place with a much better selection or simply order it online. Not in person where you have to show your fetishes to everyone. You might not even get that far because the stuff they would sell would be the most vanilla material you could find.

This is them making a smart business decision while trying to appear as righteous/progressive. It's not like otaku will stop going to 7-11 now to boycott them when they were never their targeted audience. They'll simply buy what they need and leave like everyone else. I seriously doubt they go to 7-11 for porn at any time during this age of Amazon (which you can order adult doujinshi from), Toranoana, and Melonbooks.

I think you are overstating the "show your fetishes to everyone". Adult magazines used to sell pretty well in brick and mortar stores. The disgusting fetish stuff (like Plumpers magazine for instance) didn't really seem to bother the people buying it. I know this because my family used to own one of those stores.

And the adult magazines themselves were what kept the business afloat for a good many years. The location being overrun with mexicans is what killed it.

The fuck you talking about m8, they were selling this, not because they like hentai but because it made them money, them being required by law to stop selling it will make them lose money. The real losers here are the convenience store and the people who like buy and get hentai fast.

The reason i do:

Cause is the only kind of media were a very disregarded aspect of human relationships is properly implemented. Yeah, porn exist. But mostly is just a camera fixed on genitalia colliding repeatedly with each other. Hentai VN give more context and situations and sometime even a decent gameplay (see eushully games).

And cause i can fap to it.

Maybe because the best game ever made Monster Girl Quest is a Visual Novel?
