Potential spoilers included, read at your own risk :P

I'm making this thread because the waifu thread simply can't function as the only place to discuss/post (non-H) images of KS/youtub. That, and Lynx can't into waifu. Also, I've just started this and love the style of story and art, the characters are deep (lulz), and Lilly is smalltime.

***Lynx ninja edit***

For those of you who haven't heard of this, KS is a bishoujo-style visual novel set in Japan. You play as a dude who suddenly has a very serious heart condition, and ends up at a high school mainly for disabled people. It's not a dating sim, like everyone wants you to believe. It's more like a weeaboo choose your own adventure - except that it's American made.

The really cool thing about KS is that it started on 4Chan with a single image back in 2007. A bunch of nerds worked hard for over four years to make KS a reality, and as a project of passion from fans, it's an awesome example of what people can do out of communities like 4Chan.

Oh, and if you were there at Expo 2009 when the "Lynx is a weeaboo" thing started, it's all because of this game

A word of warning - it DOES have mature content in it. This content can be enabled, just know that ahead of time. Also also, you should probably watch this:



Now, back to Cola:
*********************

I made it to two of the endings to Hanako's path, one was lame and the other gave me some major feels.

I'm really happy with the end I made it to on my first run through and I'm looking foreward to seeing the rest of Hanako and then Rin. I don't think I could become the Shoju master like Lynxsiao and complete all paths, but I'll prolly run through everyone's stories at least once just to see.

Also, lulz if you guys end up getting bad end.

Let us begin?

    Only one can be Lynxsiao, the Shoujo master!

    I didn't want to be the guy to make this thread. I knew Cola would. What's funny, since I first played the beta in 2009, there has only been ONE MENTION of KS on all of Icrontic. Suddenly, some videos show up on IC pony stream, Basil gets conned into DEM FEELS, and here we are.

    Also, @Cola, I edited your OP to add some game info.


    I have beaten all paths in this game, but I'm working on finishing all the story ends to each paths. Lilly is a 100% completion for me (best storyline. Seriously, deal with it). Problem is, I was playing on my MacBook, and as I was finishing up Rin, who I saved for last, the game just up and decided to erase all of my progress. I was able to pick up where I left off with Rin, but all the other progress (images, videos, text skip states, and save games) are all gone. Pissed me off, because to go back and finish the other paths, I no longer can skip what I've already read. Guess I'm just going to replay all of it.

    I expected Hanako to be my favorite ever since the moment when I first saw that image on 4Chan back in '07. The beta surprised me when I realized Lilly was best Shoujo. Still, Hanako was my second favorite in the full game. Felt weird to play any path after completing Lilly's. So many feels. The writing in KS isn't incredible, but the characterization of the people involved makes it all develop so well.

    Why did thread get into bronies?
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    @Cola Lynx moved it so that it would be in the part of Icrontic not viewable by the public or the general members who don't like ponies or ponystream stuff in general.

    Also so that it wouldn't get deleted
  • colacola part legend, part devil... all man Balls deep Icrontian
    lulz, k
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx Top EA shill, The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Yeah trust me, if I didn't move this thread, it would have been nuked in a day or so. You know how it goes.
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    I'm still expecting something along the lines of this to happen.

    However I'm optimistic maybe if we can make this a legit discussion as opposed to just videos and pictures it'll be allowed to stay.
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    I cant help but find this a wee bit funny. So Thursday I dropped a 300 pound cabinet on my foot, thankfully I caught most of the weight so I only injured it but I digress.

    Today trying to go to work I caused further harm to my foot and am now stuck in bed because I can hardly walk on it, what am I doing during this time? Playing Katawa Shoujo.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx Top EA shill, The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Do not stop until 100% completion. I want everyone in this thread at my level.

    Seems like you're taking the game a little to seriously.

    No.

    Your level is depraved.

  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    It's not like I was trying to injure myself, though looking back trying to unload a 300 pound cabinet by myself is asking for issue.

    Anyways I cant work till Monday doctor's orders so Rin and I have some catching up to do...

    ...What the hell that sentence...
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx Top EA shill, The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    I began playing Planescape again last night. Four hours in. Your time of reckoning is coming, @Basil.

    Please observe @Ilriyas. He done goofed. He's in deep now.

    This couldn't have gone into video gaming? It is a video game. It has nothing to do with ponies. Where is the logic in this?
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx Top EA shill, The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    The logic is that this subforum doesn't display publically on new posts. I'll gladly move it to gaming if @primesuspect agrees to it, but I've got a feeling that the content involved isn't exactly appreciated.

    I mean, it's not like ponies, so people won't hate it unnecessarily for that, but they'll find other reasons to hate it.

    Don't we have an option to simply hide discussions you don't want to see? Moving it to an unrelated category just because some people might not want to see it is silly and limits discussion.

    It's taken you literal months to get 4 hours in; I'm not holding my breath.

    I'm just trying to avoid the sh*tstorm we had with ponies, but I agree with you. I'll move it to games if @primesuspect is cool with it.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian
    These endless image threads do not lend well to public discussion; it's a tiny niche of the same five people who just keep endlessly bumping the thread with another image that makes no sense to everyone else. It gets super annoying for the vast majority of people who keep seeing the new discussions button on a single thread that they don't care about. And no, you can't unsubscribe from a single discussion, only a category.
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Since joining Icrontic two things have happened to my youtube account specifically.

    1. For a time my youtube recommendations were nothing but Pony videos and I was fine with this.

    2. As of today half of my recommended videos are related to Katawa Shoujo even though the only vids I've ever watched were in the streams and/or linked to me by you guys. This scares me somewhat considering that only months before this thread's creation I laughed at the notion of this 'game' and openly guffawed at any attempts to explain it to me in relation to now where I not only play the game but advocate others trying it and having serious discussions on the topic as proven by this whole post...

    I'd continue to blame you guys for this as I have up until this afternoon but I actually have no problem with the game it's really well written for something that I believed would've had zero production value and though not even through Act 1 yet I'm getting 'feels' So instead of blaming you lot (You know who you are) I'm going to instead thank you because you convinced me to drop my preconceptions and pick up something which has actually turned out to be surprisingly good.
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Second post/place holder edit.

    And yes you guys can consider this, as with everything else to be my 'breaking point'
