“Lilly.” You mean to shout but your lungs have forgotten what oxygen is, so it comes out as the merest whisper. Your head spins for want of breath. Half-running and half-falling, you rush over and check her pulse.Nothing.Maybe... maybe you’re just not doing it right?Nothing.Maybe… Maybe…Her face is cold. You feel something welling up in you. You have no idea what the feeling it but it’s a poison. A fatal poison threatens to asphyxiate you as you look into Lilly’s half-open eyes……Poison?Your yandere instincts come back online as you realize Lilly’s body bear no visible wound. Quickly, you stuff a piece of the broken teacup into your handkerchief. You have no idea what for, but you know it could be important.The icy feeling in your chest has turned into a burning.Lilly is dead… The Tea-club duo has been broken. You want to get whoever did this… you wanna kill them kill them KilL THeM kill tHEm Kill KILLKILLKILLKILLKILLKILLKILLKILL… but… but if someone catches you changing the room, that murder is almost certain to land on you.

> (x) Search for cluesWe're good friends with both Kira and Lilly, so nobody should be able to reasonably suspect us.Unless of course there's evidence planted somewhere. Better watch out for it.
You need to gather as much evidence as you can before it gets contaminated. Your mind whirs.Ok. If Lilly was poisoned… you don’t see any food nearby or any crumbs on her lips. Therefore unless she decided to spend her last moment of life dabbing her lips with a napkin, it must have been through the tea.But… Lilly prepares the tea herself. How… could that have been poisoned without her knowledge?(MAX) Yan [__________] Dere Maybe someone tampered with the tea bags. Maybe something distracted her.

>>47843214At first sight, it seems: Butthurt: the post.But sadly, I partly have to agree.Too many times we didn't have chances to avoid favourable outcomes for our opponents.If this would be a visual novel or so, now I'd reload from my last save, also if I didn't got a bad end.

(x) Maybe someone tampered with the tea bags
>>47843376>[X] Maybe something distracted her.I'd be surprised if Lilly doesn't keep careful track of her teabags; probably brings them in herself and doesn't leave them in the tea room, perhaps. If that isn't the case I'd take the first option, but we (as Hanako) are aware that Lilly brings them into the tea room each day, the second option seems more likely. I have my own thoughts on the concerns brought up by the other anon, but I'll save them for when Akira asks for further feedback, which I assume will be at the usual "Post-route end" thread he's done before when we talk about the route that was completed and discuss the next one.

>1 vote in ten minutesWelp, I guess it could be because it's still early and people are still filtering in. But if it's just a ragequit then, well... it's called Katawa YANDERE. You really should have been prepared for an outcome like this, especially with how you've been playing.I'll let it run a little longer, but if we don't hit a functional participation level, I'll close the thread and open up a poll on whether you all want to forfeit the Hanako route.
>>47843582Could just be a slow today where people are busy with other things, I suppose. I'm distraught about Lilly of course, and I understand some of the frustrations people have talked about - rather than ragequitting, though, I'd rather see this to the end and then discuss it afterwards. We've gone this far, might as well see if we can still win. Plus, we've apparently swung back to full Yan, which could be fun.

Maybe someone tampered with the tea bags.You’re not sure how that would work… but they’re they only piece of material evidence you have. Pulse pounding, you grab a plastic bag and locate the tea bag – scooping it up, you realize it hasn’t lost all its warmth...Lilly may have still been alive as recently as ten minutes ago.You bite your lip.You’ve tarried too long. Time to escape. Even if you have an alibi, you’d rather have it that no one puts motive on you when the other bodies start showing up.Time to escape….

[x] leave through the hallwayGoing through the window is waaaaaay to suspicious. If someone catches us, we're screwed. If this really is a trap by the deaf bitch, there's no way she wouldn't anticipate us going through the window. Lilly is still our best friend, and getting caught in the hallway is less bad than getting caught sneaking out of the window. If someone is waiting in the hallway, we can still start screaming.

>>47843910>[X] Leave through the window.I have entered this thread late but its not too late!

‘The hallway is too visible, Hanako.’ Your inner voice tells you.You put your hand on the windowsill and slide it open.Wait… just… ‘slide’ it?It’s supposed to be locked. Why…?!Much as you would ‘badly’ like to stick around, the sound of voices through the wall compels you to make a hasty exit.You fall a two stories and smack to the ground, but somehow you position yourself in a way so as to avoid any real damage. Between the packed ground and concrete wall… you really could have hurt yourself.You’re out of there like a bat out of hell. As far as you can tell, no one saw you… Your gambit paid off. Now your next stop is…Actually, there are a few place you could go…If you’re worried about yourself, you could go back to the classroom. The time interval in which you investigated Lilly’s murder scene was short enough to be overlooked. Miki and Suzu, the school’s amateur detective duo, would jump at the chance of helping you solve this mystery. You could inform Akira, obviously… However… Akira isn’t the most stable person… if she finds out Lilly got killed while doing a favor for you… well… that could get… ‘very’ ugly.You decide to head to…(MAX) Yan [__________] Dere Mutou’s class to make your alibi.

>>47844313>[X] Akira’s house to plot revenge.Under different circumstances, I would have stayed away from this option. She's a wildcard, and we know how dangerous she can be. HOWEVER - Akira Trip mentioned that when we're at max Yan, we can understand Akira's speech in a way we otherwise couldn't. We're in a position to finally communicate with her on a level previously impossible. We're just as Yan as she is now, and that may give us the edge we need to convince her to help us. Team Slumberparty would have been our option if we were full Dere, but we're obviously not Dere anymore, now are we?
>>47844313I doubt we need to make an alibi after already having a plausible one, not to mention we would be in front of the student council again.

“Hey-Hey, Hanners~!” Akira swings the door open before you’ve even knocked. “Felt like playing delinquent again? Wanna take facebook photos together?” She pulls out an instant-printing camera. “I took it from this skinny awkward chick I met on my last trip to America.”(YAN) [It isn’t fair that they get to be the hero… That’s what I was supposed to be.]You shake your head. Akira picks up on the discrepancy in your mood right away. “Hanako… what happened?”“Lilly’s dead.”…Akira stares at you. She doesn’t cry or wince or visibly react. She just stares at you.(YAN) [She’s trying to access feelings she doesn’t have any longer.]“How?” She asks finally. One simple word. Looking into those dark red eyes, you realize how you answer could be a matter of life and death.(MAX) Yan [__________] Dere Tell her everything.

>>47844622Telling her the truth increases the chances of her murdering us right now before she moves on to kill Shizune. Not telling her the key detail would probably work for now, but if she discovers the truth later, it's over for us. Lying altogether would mean not telling Akira why Shizune is almost certainly to blame, though Shizune is the most likely culprit anyway. Hm... this is a tough one. I need a moment to think.

>>47844622>>47844723>[X] Omit the part where Lilly was distracting Shizune for you.Alright, thinking on it more, I've got a gut feeling that telling her the full truth is a bad idea. Akira would potentially be sympathetic about the truth if she *had* any sympathy left, but that's almost certainly one of the emotions she lost a long time ago.
>>47844792We fought alongside her once. Even if she starts seeing us as 'expendable ally', that has to count for something.
>>47844622[X] Omit the part where Lilly was distracting Shizune for you.
Oh dear this one's tough. Lilly wouldn't asociate with Deafy unless she had to, so if we lie and Kira learns that they were seen together.. she'll eventually find out.But if Akira wants to be a hero, maybe we should let her play the part. Or maybe she resents us, and so telling her would be dumb.Then again, Lilly is pretty much the only thing she gives a shit about... so either we're gonna become her new thing or she's gonna kill us too.Fuck it, > be honestif we're going down, we're taking the blind deaf bitch with us.
You tell her everything – the part about Shizune, the teacups, how it looked like the work of a poisoner.“So… you think Shizune is to blame?” She answers finally.“It… looks like that… yes.”“Give me the teacup.” You do. She looks it over, red eyes burning, then she looks back to you.(YAN) [She’s debating whether or not to kill you… No.]“A-Akira? Are you… going to kill Shizune?”“If that’s who did it, yeah… But I don’t want to jump to conclusions… This revenge has to be targeted… they’ll manage to escape if I try to brute-force it.” She sighs and casts a frigid glare at you. “Hanako. If you ever talk to me again, I’ll kill you. Let yourself out.”(YAN) [I want to be alone… This isn’t how it was supposed to be.]You don’t push your luck and head back. Akira… just terminated your alliance. But it seems that she wants to work independently…(YAN)‘Maybe she’ll kill Shizune for you. Maybe you could just hunker down for a defensive war… It’ll be just you and Hisao… Just like you wanted.’A voice plays through your mind. You feel… excited by it. And ashamed.

You head over to the girl’s dorms – which are predictably abuzz with grief over the loss of their idol.Lilly’s body is carried out on a golden sarcophagus drawn by chocobos. Behind them professional mourners are shrieking and tearing their hair out. You find Miki setting off a 21-gun salute as they slide her body into a burning Viking longboat. The girls then begin conducting mass animal sacrifices. War captives sacrifices and gladiator fights are gonna be later in the evening.“Heya there, Hanners.” Miki greets you a bit dejectedly.Yeesh, when even Miki is depressed, you know shit’s gotten real.“… Get Suzu.” Your eyes alight with fire. We have business to discuss.”A time later, you, Miki, and Suzu have all convened in Suzu’s room and you’ve finished telling them your story.“So… in other words…” Suzu rocks her head. “You’ve almost at the victory point, but you’ve gotten everyone you cared about either ostracized or killed. Yeesh. That makes you only a slightly less shitty VN protagonist than Kayto Shields.”“I’m gonna get revenge. That counts for something… right?”“HELLS TO THE YEAH!!!” Miki hops up and slams her nail bat into the wall. “LET’S DO THIS~! I AM AWAITED IN VALHALLA!”The odd-couple’s fire is invigorating you as well… You don’t feel tired anymore… You want revenge.(YAN) But… you can’t do it that way… Shizune’s a schemer.

It's probaby more of a dere thing.What woulld disbanding the StuCo accomplish? Woudn't that just mean that Shizune would be free of obligations, making it easier for her to move unnoticed?
>>47845440> Maybe we could find an opening in her schedule if we observe her?Turning Misha would be difficult for us at the best of times. Lilly managed it because of her natural charisma and help from Akira. A full YAN Hanako? Next to no chance.

I came back home 20 minutes ago.I checked /tg/ to see if this week we were playing KY, and I was so happy and I start reading it.I was shocked seeing Lilly's death and the beginning of the thread.But now I'm really full of disgust.All this months lost, only to discover tonight that a bunch of samefags playing randomly with full Yan will is the way to be invincible.Telling in-story Akira we pratically killed her sister...

A stroke of genius hits you. “Maybe… we could try to disband the Student Council?”Both Miki and Suzu perk up. You feel a sinister kind of grin crawling across your face. “Shizune has access to parts of the building others don’t. She can move around much more easily than others. She has more resources… More intel… but all of that, all of it, is dependant on her position of the student council head!”“We take away her title, she loses her hidy-holes.” Miki grins.“And it might rattle her into being more careless than usual.” Suzu agrees.

“I… I don’t know yet.” You discard conventional openings. Shizune will almost definitely be covered on that front. “Do… you think you could go digging, Suzu?”She nods and smacks her fist into her open palm.Then she immediately falls onto Miki’s lap, sound asleep.Miki shrugs. “Anyways, looks like us three are gonna be bunkin together from now on… Might wanna get some bottled water, too.”You nod. As of right now… you think you’ll go visit Hisao before the funeral games start.Right now the girls are sacrificing war captives taken during your last baseball match with the Little Busters.

The second one sounds distantThe third one shows that we care about him, and might get him to open up to usLel at whoever picks the first one>[x] What do you mean ‘you guys’? You’re one of us too.
>[X] What do you mean ‘you guys’? You’re one of us too.YOU ENTERED THE RABBIT-HOLE HICCHAN. THERE IS NO ESCAPE FROM US NOW.
>>47846438Every vote cast has an X% chance to be reassigned to that choice.
>>47846442Honestly now I'm curious to see where we'll finish.> [X ](YAN) DEATH IS BEAUTIFUL. DEATH IS ETERNAL.
>>47846442>>47846337>[X] What do you mean ‘you guys’? You’re one of us too.ONE OF US. ONE OF US.>>47846472OH FUCK>>47846409
>>47846337>[X] It’s… something you have to deal with.Reminding Hisao that his life has changed - arguably for the worse - is not going to help him cope, I don't think. >>47846442Huh, that's clever.

>>47846472>Every vote cast has an X% chance to be reassigned to that choice.>DEATH IS BEAUTIFUL. DEATH IS ETERNAL.
>>47846472So our psychosis will get worse when we are indecisive. Interesting mechanic.
>>47846337>[X] It’s… something you have to deal with.Don't know why he isn't consoling us, since we are kinda close and he knows Lilly was a big friend to us. That would get us some good Hisao points. Maybe that will come next.
>>47846528Nah. It doesn't get worse. But you will probably freak the shit out of whoever you're talking to.
>>47846472I never understood why the police officer was running away in this pic. That is unconscionable negligence.
>>47846587You should have been able to figure out what he meantAssuming an infinite sample size, if everyone voted on one option it would win, with 60% votesif everyone was split, the hella ebin yan one would win with 40% beating two 30%s
>>47842975anyone got any news on the sequel to this game?
>>47846661this game already is a sequel
>>47846674well i walked right into that one
>>47846601You try standing still or running towards thousands of tons of steel and other debris when it is falling down near where you are. By running away he can help others far better.
>>47846661We only pick the next route after the previous one ends.
“DEATH IS BEAUTIFUL, HISAO. DEATH IS ETERNAL.” You break into a crazed fit of giggles. “It’s the only great equalizing factor. The only thing that’s fair to us all. It’s death. Sweat death. Dea~~~~~th…”He looks at you as if you’d just asked permission to eat his shoe.“Uh… Hanako… are you… ok?”You regain yourself in an instant and look away awkwardly. “I’m sorry… just… Lilly…”He makes a movement as if to put his arm around you but then stops halfway. “Y-yeah… I know you were close.”You feel something snapping inside your mind. ‘Not as close as to you, Hisao, my darling, my love. One Lilly? Two? A thousand? Who cares? You’ll love meeeeeee...’Still facing away, you smile broadly as you stare at the flames.The rest of your night is spent in silence, with neither you nor Hisao saying anything.
>>47846745Well, that, uh...That could have gone better.
>>47846745Is it winning if we snap, kidnap Hisao, then kill him and ourselves when Shitzune tries to come and save him? Cause I think we are starting to go that route
>>47846745The next morning you awaken like a computer turning on. No grogginess, no lethargy, nothing. You simply turn on, feeling blessed with a wonderful clarity of mind. Suzu is, unusually, not in her room at the moment. Miki is passed out on the desk next to an empty bottle of rum.To you, however…. Today feels momentous. You slide your knife into its hidden sheath in your boot and head down to the kitchen--BAM.Then Suzu bursts through the front door, panting and sweating beads. “Hanako. I know.” She runs (in actuality more like a slow trot) up to you and grins. “I know how you can disband the council.”You return the smile, hair hiding half of your face.This is gonna be a good day.[Part 15 End]
good game guys
WARNING: WALLPOST INCOMINGNow we finished and we can elaborate the facts, so here's my 2 cents about tonight.I have to confess I almost was a spectator, I voted only twice.After a slow start, I appreciated this KY route's plot. Also (maybe mostly) some crazy bad ends we got, like last week's one. I've always only been perplexed about the yan/dere meter.But... sorry to say this Akira, Lilly's death, without having any chance to avoid it for us, is the jump of the shark.I found it an imposed try to overload unnecessary, as it was a punishment for us, drama on the route. And I bet a lot of people who ragequitted the thread after its beginning, has similar thoughts.And today's thread, after the initial ragequit... only went worse. By far the worst one I ever played (started with Rin route).Seeing this outside your point of view, who was astonished by first post (and maybe also full of expectation after last week hiatus), probably saw the entire thread as you wanted a trolling session to get a revenge on ragequitters. At least, that's what I saw as the story progressed.The thread was obviously played, at least the first hour, only by samefags just to keep it alive, no discussion at all, people acted almost randomly at full yan and they got no bad consequences(telling akira we were the cause for Lilly's murder and having no reaction, I still kek hard), after weeks trying to understand how the yan/dere meter will work and trying to be full dere, having a lot of bad things happening to us without having the chance to avoid them... It felt like you were mocking us. Hardly.I don't even wanna talk about Hanako gained the ability of taking any kind of direction we wanted after being full Yan, we took choices that before today should have led us to a lot of bad ends. But today... no, characters started to act crazy just because. And obviously, no one NEVER stopped us, when some threads we couldn't do anything 'cause every post someone step in our way.cont.
>>47846872cont. I still wanna believe tonight session was a (bad) joke and we'll restart next week, but I know it won't happen.You may say "that's my quest, I decided Lilly had to die and as the QuestMaster I decide it all, and you have to accept it" and continue on the way you chosen, and obviously it's your right to do this. As you hinted with>>47846184calling us unsuccessful people for criticize you. (as someone has to told us we're a bunch of losers. We already know it).But meme pics asides sometimes to admit or even to consider having made a mistake is a sign of strength, not a sign of weakness. For what KY meant to me I still wish you guys good luck for next sessions, seeing how tonight we hit the lowest number of posts and posters (and also almost no discussion, leaving angry people aside 'cause I doubt they will come back) I fear you really need it. Probably I'll be here again before the end of the route, but tonight was a stroke to my heart (ah! ah!)May I ask you, Akira, an answer about this? If you wanna, obviously.
>>47846839Welp, I'm pretty sad we not only lost Lilly but Akira as well, but at least A) we've got a plan and the means to execute it, and B) we're learning what being full Yan is like. This last stretch should be interesting, if nothing else.
Aaaaaaand that's our show, folks. Sorry that one or two of y'all were unhappy, but a game is only a game if the possibility to lose exists, right?We're getting close to the end now, so I'd HIGHLY recommend not missing our next show. Seeyazz!
Imagine knowing that you screwed up so bad to the point where you may have had to abandon the quest due to lack of participation, and then later on trying to damage control by saying it's "one or two people"
>>47846931Can't wait to see Akira go all rip and tear on the student council, if we can prove to her they did it that is.
>>47846931> We're getting close to the end nowWhat? Seriously?Other routes got 25 threads, with some split ones, and this will finish now?W-what a delusion. 'Til 2 weeks ago it was my favourite one, after today I'm almost glad this mockery will end.
>>47846839Thanks for the game, Akira.I hope this cliffhanger is better than the last one.If it had been up to me, I would have revealed Lilly being dead last session, not leave it for two weeks just for us to be let down after all that tension.I'm kind of calling into doubt how effective the Yan/Dere meter is. It seems we've hit so many road blocks trying to be Dere when going Yan would have been the easiest way to play. I don't get the feelings that the two sides are that balanced. I would have to see what kind of negative effect YAN choices inflict on us.For spending the entire route up to this point as Dere, we lost two allies in one post. It's kind of a let down and I think it will discourage further Dere play from now on since people will feel it isn't worth the investment. In previous games, killing was not always the best way to go, but it seems to be the encouraged path now.And now the route is more about getting revenge for Lilly than claiming Hisao for our own.
>>47846931If we really were going to finish early... let's say before end of June, can we replay last week or this week session please?Tonight I played and voted completely discouraged by how the things were developing. And it seems I wasn't the only one. If we are near the finish line couldn't be at least an idea to listen to the audience? You told on >>47843582you were ready to ask if we wanna forfeit the route (and now we learn we still have a few sessions more), maybe a poll about reloading would be more appreciated
>>47846901I'll take questions at the end of the route. Also it helps if they're actually in the form of questions. Jus' sayin'.>>47846980But people started participating again! And the hecklers were all suspiciously-timed, said essentially the same thing, replying to each other (always making sure to compliment each other, of course), and written in the same 'fuck grammar' style! So yeah, I'm happy that I didn't fuck up anywhere near as badly as I thought I did! :)You really had me there for a minute, troll-kun. Next time, though, you should try to give it some more variety. It's a dead-giveaway. ^.^;;;
>>47847091> I'll take questions at the end of the route.Ok, thanks!
>>47847091Your damage control would have gone a lot better if any of the posts actually did anything that you describedSeriously, good job literally making up everything in that postYou're clearly not fit to be running these anymore. Whatever happened in the big long hiatus damaged you a little too much
>>47847003I was going to save my feedback for later, but I suppose I might as well mention it now: I have to agree with Fluff on this. I was excited to try Full Dere, but the problem we ran into was that it felt like all of our Dere choices were more passive and involved building up ally relationships or hanging out with Hisao. I don't remember any of them being especially pro-active or allowing us to make a significant move against our enemies. Perhaps we simply played wrong, and if that's the case, so be it. It just felt difficult to make any progress before without making Yan choices. Granted, Akira Trip did mention playing a balance of Yan and Dere was also viable, but Full Dere was supposed to be as well. I'm not so upset that I'm going to stop participating - Katawa Yandere is still a unique and enjoyable experience I can't really get anywhere else - but while I'm fine with going all-in on the Yan path we've got for the rest of the Hanako route, I'd prefer that Dere have clearer proactive choices on our next go around. With all that said, I'm still looking forward to seeing how this ends. We can save the more in-depth discussion of how the quest mechanics worked for when it's over.
>>47847148Man, my waifu died and I'm not as buttmad as this guy is about it.
>>47847148>i-it's seriously not just me! Honest!>poll has only one negative voteYou're out of your depth, kid. I've been doing this a while.
>>47847249There is no poll in the threadJust like what you described about not using grammar, compliments and all that nonsense also isn't in the threadWhatever happened in the big long hiatus damaged you a little too much. I'm repeating this since you probably missed it the first time, due to whatever fucked your brain up. You should really consider seeing a doctor
>>47847167>It just felt difficult to make any progress before without making Yan choices. Granted, Akira Trip did mention playing a balance of Yan and Dere was also viable, but Full Dere was supposed to be as well./tg/ has proven, times and times again, that we as a collective hivemind are physically incapable of consistent diplomatic approach. Not just here, I've seen that in other quests as well. I'm not if it's out social ineptness or couple trolls swaying the vote in the wrong direction at the wrong moment, but we will always go full retarded sooner rather than later.
>>47847167Were the votes mostly going in favor of the choices you liked? At the beginning we didn't really have lots of discussions about strategy and stuff, so we didn't really have a coherent strategy.
>>47847301So essentially, playing full YAN is the only logical choice.
>tripfag doesn't realize that it's impossible to "samefag" a lack of posts
>>47847365I think we might be able to pull the "balanced" approach, if we really try, but full dere requires finesse we're collectively not capable of.
>>47847301>>47847307I'm talking less about the choices we made and more about the choices available to us. While we were going down the Dere path that we had collectively decide upon (especially after that crucial "I want to be more like Lilly" choice that we had to get a revote on), we usually had sets of options that included both Yan and Dere choices, and the Dere choices were typically "spend time with friends/allies" or "spend time with Hisao." My memory could be fuzzy, don't get me wrong, but I remember the Dere choices rarely allowing us to take any action against or towards Rin, Emi, Shizune, or Misha. Felt like we were slowly building up relationships without having the chance to actually utilize them unless one of our enemies made the first move. It was reactionary, y'know?But, again, I might be wrong on this, and we can discuss this in more detail in the Q&A once the route is over. For now, we may as well focus on what we've got. Do I have criticisms? Sure, but that doesn't mean we can't still have fun. At the end of the day, it's just a quest game played by a bunch of anonymous nerds on 4chan; I don't think we need to take it any more seriously than that.
>>47847398Isn't that what we were doing now, by accident?Right now we are technically yan but we have two allies and one weapon that we got by playing dere.
>>47847398Especially with a writer that always goes behind our backs and tries to lie about the state of the game.Not even in character either, just trying to be antagonistic and berate the players.KY is an fun distraction but it's just not good enough to take seriously.
Something I think I can address, however, (if for no other reason that literally said it before) is that -dere characters aren't combat specialists. Lilly, for example, automatically loses any actual 'fight' she gets into unsupported. Those Tip sections weren't just fluff-text you know...Poisoning rivals, talking them down, or pushing them to suicide is how a -dere character is meant to be played. I even gave you good old Kohaku-san as a character reference. So... for the people saying they 'tried to play -dere'... you guys never even ATTEMPTED a social boss fight anywhere in this route. And all after poor little me when through all the trouble to write a separate combat system just for social duels. :(
>>47847496I'm sorry for the frustration. I'll be sure to remember this next time.
>>47847496kindly refer to >>47847301We can be diplomatic on a good day, but we can't keep it together consistently.
>>47847448Could have fooled me. Spazzing as you have been for literally hours, you seem to be taking this unbelievably seriously. ^.^;;;
>>47847496I don't remember being given the chance to. We were always either spending time with allies or defending against attacks from enemies. Did we have any opportunity to talk to rivals and enemies? Rin and Emi always ambushed us and we never had a chance to talk to Shizune when we weren't vying for Hisao's attention.Frankly, I was caught off guard by Lilly dying. I was sure she could handle herself after getting through the riot safe and sound. If Lilly was full Dere, I would have thought she would have the advantage in a verbal duel, which is what I think we were going for when she distracted Shizune.
>>47847605Did you think that being antagonistic in the way the post described and trying your usual "s-samefag!" shitposts that have been shut down for literally hours would prove it wrong?
>>47847301Hm... that is actually something I've noticed... But I'm not sure if there's any surefire fix to that. I want y'all to succeed, but I'm not gonna just hand you things.
>>47847496Hm. Seems like the problem perhaps resulted from Dere choices leading towards social duels being too vague, our own misunderstandings and incorrect assumptions as players, or just plain old inconsistency in our group choices; probably the third possibility, as the other anon pointed out. Hard to say exactly. To be honest, if you noticed we collectively voted to go Dere but weren't really picking choices that would lead to social battles, I think it would have been fine to toss one at us directly just so we're fully aware the mechanic exists and we get comfortable with the idea that seeking out more of them is how we progress as a Dere. Kinda like forcing a player in a video game to learn a mechanic during a tutorial section, y'know? I understand if you have a design philosophy as the quest master that goes against this, though.
>>47847672Maybe a little more transparency?Let us know what our affection is with out allies and mark major choices As YAN or DERE so we know what we are getting into?
>>47847639Defeating Shizu in verbal duel is rather low bar.
>>47847648>poll is unchangedKeep whining. I'll just point to the numbers and smile.>>47847703I thought about that, but what I've found is that letting people see 'everything' just encourages finding ways to break the game instead of actually just 'playing'.
>>47847605it's much easier to mock a retarded DM who keeps leaving himself open compared to coordinating a battle plan
>>47847756Especially one who actually gets this defensive with the poorly compressed jpg image responses and who knows he fucked up but won't admit it.
I think our last chance for a social boss fight was when we confronted Emi and Rin.If Akira hadn't been with us, we would have had no choice but to parlay. As it was, we did have a choice and we chose to kick ass.
>>47847731You may want to take another look at it. It might save us a lot of confusion and make Dere a more lucrative choice if we see the results and benefits of taking that path.>>47847801Everything did seem to go downhill after that fight.
>>47847780Yeesh, that image hit way too close to home for you, didn't it? I'd really encourage trying to change yourself according to it. Not just on the intertubes but in life as well.
>>47847869Not very bright huh? I wouldn't be able to make fun of it if it was applicable.
>>47847801Ah, true. I think that must have been the turning point. We were *that* close to finally getting a social battle, but the thread voted to go the Yan option even though we had worked so hard to be Dere. I still can't recall any proactive Dere choices prior to that encounter, but that was definitely the moment where things fell apart.>>47847731>>47847856Nah, I see what Akira Trip means. After we voted to go full Dere, if we had been given three options marked Yan, Neutral, and Dere, we just would have taken the Dere option basically every time. It would have had an effect on player psychology that I think would have been negative in the long run; the only way that would work out well is if we had *multiple* marked Dere choices and maybe one Yan choice. That way we could still swing back down the YanDere meter at any time, but we could have debated on exactly *how* to proceed as a Dere. If Akira Trip could provide multiple marked choices of the same type fairly often, though, it could work; it just might require more work on his part, and I'm not sure how strenuous that would be.
>>47847496>Poisoning rivals, talking them down, or >pushing them to suicide is how a -dere >character is meant to be playedLike when we were full Dere, we found Misha alone, and we had 2 choices like Kill Misha. Escape The fuck, Derest choices ever!>>47847856> Everything did seem to go downhill after that fight.If when you say Everything you mean the master, hell yeah
>>47847448One who posts irrelevant comics (I know they're not really comics) that look like they came straight from zenpencils and tries to deflect all criticism of his attitude towards the game and players as "u mad".Hanako's route got dropped earlier and now it's getting shat on by a DM being a child who thinks that the goal of the quest is to be as passive-aggressive as possible after an episode is over.She will forever be the girl who got the short end of the stick.
>>47848028Actually no, as passive-aggressive as possible during the quest too, not just after each episode.I beg that /tg/ excuse me for forgetting about stuff like >>47846184 technically being earlier on, it's just he didn't really start deflecting hard until later.
At the end of the day, all this spazzing is happened because a vote got Lilly killed. I was on the fence about whether to overturn it through an executive decision but I decided y'all were adults. It seems I wasn't 'completely' right... though to your credit, most of you did stick through it. And let me take this opportunity to thank you all you kept playing and didn't start screeching and hurling your shit everywhere. You guys rock. Ignore the monkeys. They'll get tired eventually.
>>47848120Thanks, Akira.I'm still pissed Lilly is dead, but I hope after the route ends I'll be able to figure out in the QnA how we screwed up and what we did to make it happen.For now I will satisfy myself with taking my anger out on Shizune. Please make her end as brutal as it deserves to be.
>>47848120It's true, KY won't last forever, eventually you'll get tired of throwing shit on the participants since you had a bad day and made some fuck-ups ^.^;;;
>>47847298>when you shut down a shitty quest master so hard they literally have no last resort and can only sit down in silence, just right
>>47846931> but a game is only a game if the > possibility to lose exists, right?True. But there's a difference between playing Final Fantasy 7 and see Aerith's death, and playing a FF7 version in which Aerith dies offscreen, the game ask you if you wanna quit, you answer no and the game continues with you being overpowered to kill instantly Sephiroth.>>47848120> I was on the fence about whether to overturn it> through an executive decision but > I decided y'all were adults> Majority of players asks a thing> Decide to not do it and made a ... let's say controversial sessionSorry, but I prefer you listened to the players.As you said we have a session or two, can't we erase this one? It was close a disaster.
>>47848120This post confused me a little.Lilly didn't even was (at least not for sure) dead last time we played, and discovering it was the first surprise of the day.Why you tell you was thinking about overturning? It was your call to start this way.And about tonight session we had more than one problem:- Lilly's death (maybe it was unbearable for someone, but not for everyone)- How Lilly died. During last session, but we didn't knew it (for sure) 'til today, and she died when we didn't have the chance to help her.- The Yan/Dere meter. A long-term issue, but today it exploded. We are talking now about how probably during the whole quest try to keep full Dere wasn't the most profitable choice, and we always were trying to play full dere or balanced without really gaining advantageous choices. But today going full Yan gave us what we were searching for months (like manipulating the StuCo) plus immunity by events that made us die in the past, so some players felt cheated by being told playing Yan was a choice exactly like balanced or Dere.That's a trust issue... a thing that can happen on a rpg, but a thing that has to be solved, not ignored.Can't you at least try to make a poll to know if today's session has to be re-done? Or about how to solve the Yan-Dere issues? You said in the end of the day we have almost finished Hanako quest, I doubt replaying a session would be a greater trouble than continue ignoring today's problems.Trust me, not only the ones who cringed a lot today 'cause waifu death had a bad session of play. Look at how partecipation and discussion were almost null during the session. I'm talking about the global perspective of the route.
>>47848795>This post confused me a littleThis post confused me a lot.>Lilly didn't even was (at least not for sure) dead last time we playedShe was dead at the end of the previous thread, genius.
Thanks for the thread as always, Akira.
It seems we all lost our temper yesterday.Players have been immediately too aggressive and provoking during the session, and it got worse in the end and after it (not only the insulting one), and Akira should have called a day instead of threatening a poll to forfeit the route to force players to continue in a story that was disappointing them.Shit happens when you party naked, not such a problem, but it's not too late for both parts to take a step back and reach an agreement.I agree with anons saying it's probably better to cancel this session and doing it again, it's really a shame seeing another time the Hanako curse hitting someone around beginning of the act 4 and leading to a hurried ending.
>>47851844I think the reason for the week delay was probably OP getting kicked in the head by a giraffe, he started referencing things that don't exist as evidence of him doing a good job.Succumbing to hubris is one thing, but he actually tried to make examples of things that aren't real (they don't exist) when trying to diminish the dissatisfaction people were feeling with this session/the connection to last session. He tried to cry samefag and listed traits that aren't in any of the posts in this thread, and then pointed to a poll that's also not in this thread.I think that unless he can explain this, KY needs to take another break for a few months while he gets fixed up. Not just stopping the Hanako route, what I mean is stopping entirely and putting it on hiatus, to be resumed or rebooted when he's better. What I'm seeing is some problems that will last longer than just this session.
>>47852042I agree with you about having a nightmarish session, and abput Akira refusing to see how many people were unsatisfied.But please, stop bullshit like> he need to be fixedyou already told us a lot of times, it's poor insulting and we could never try to seriously talk starting with this behaviour.For Akira: please, really, please. Come back on this thread to discuss at least the chance to make a poll about keeping or erasing yesterday's session.As>>47851844said, we all lost our temper yesterday, shit happens, but it would be fair to confront us now, being more calm.
>>47847496> you guys never even ATTEMPTED a social boss fight> Poisoning rivals, talking them down, or pushing them> to suicide is how a -dere character is meant to be playedSorry Akira but... when we even had a chance to do it?I count 0 of them during all the route.While when we tried to pursue any kind of target, mainly having time with Hisao after ShizunexHisao Bad End, we had 2 entire sessions with EVERYONE in Yamaku crossing our steps to avoid we were with him. And a lot of choices without a chance to go away with Hisao, but things like "Do you wanna stay with Miki only or pick on the bandwagon also Suzu?"I'm really sorry to say that, but the aftermath of this session was really disappointing.Someone already had doubts about the Yan/Dere meter, and you told us more than once being full Dere will unlock us choices like poisoning opponents. It's a shame we never saw that choice, but our best friend WAS poisoned by someone who was full YAN and full DERE I suppose, 'cause she is stronger than us in fights, she poisons people, she manipulates people and has entire threads with Hisao while we have to avoid disasters, and so on.Maybe if no one of us understood how things worked, and we never had benefits by our choices for 14 session, there were also faults in explanations, it's not only a "you guys never tried".
>>47848120> because a vote got Lilly killedPlease, at least for once, answer here, not waiting then end of the route.How could we had avoided this? I don't remember any choice, last week, that may lead to saving Lilly.And for a such big impact on the game (losing Lilly, our alliance with Akira we worked on for 14 episodes) it should have been more clear.Or at least, don't tell us "I thought about revoking it, but I didn't do it for the lulz"
Hi all folks, it's >>47843214 here.Yes, yesterday I ragequitted.Seeing how thread went, maybe I made the right choice for me.I know Akira's policy is to disconnect from Katawa Yandere between one session and another... but I really wish he could be here now.Akira, sorry to say it, but you heavily deluded me.This thread and your posts after it, put a big stain on the past sessions 'til now.You killed Lilly OFFSCREEN (and got us cliffhanged for 2 weeks for a thing that already happened). Our best friend, our only resource before we found Hisao.I cringed hard, I admit it, but I surely wasn't the only one disappointed.You had 6 votes for the first choice.6 votes for the second choice. And after 1 vote in 10 minutes, you said you were ready to abort the whole route.8 votes on 3rd choice.8 votes on 4th choice.9 votes on 5th choice.At this point we took 2 choices that would have costed us an horrible BAD END in other sessions, and we burned almost EVERYTHING we did in the whole route. Akira, Lilly... we had only 2 side characters, Suzu and Miki.Thread was a little revived, for the next choices we had about 10 voters each.And we embraced the Yan. Learning it was useful to plan to do also what we NEVER found, planning against our opponents, for the whole session.Then (after the shortest ever in-game thread) started the afterthread. In which we learned than>>47847496It's our fault we never attempted social fights. 'Cause they never existed, at least in the choices we had.>>47847672> I want y'all to succeedAnd it's clearly not what happened. We rushed around for entire threads with our opponents overpowered, being able to outyan us, outdere us, doing all the awesome things we never had the chance to choose. It wasn't a bad thing, as I said once in the end of a previous thread Shizune was a great opponent. But letting her killing Lilly without being able to oppose ourselves, also with a BAD END result, means ruining the whole plot.Cont.
cont.>>47847731> letting people see 'everything' just > encourages finding ways to break the game > instead of actually just 'playing'.The worst lie of them all.You constantly give us false tips (like the chance to poison our opponents. That obviously we never saw because we never tried a non-existant verbal boss fight, and instead we took one against our closest ally).Before the fight with Rin and Emi, you also remake the vote.And from tonight to the end of the route, you'll push us to pick Yan choice. Obviously, with full Yan we'll be able to play Yan choices, Dere choices, and balanced choices. When we were balanced or full dere, we could only fool around to do nothing.Well, not really nothing. We could build an alliance we saw shattered basically partly OFFSCREEN, partly after you blackmailed us with the "no more Hanako route if you won't play tonight".>>47848120> I was on the fence about whether to overturn > it through an executive decision but > I decided y'all were adults. This is a thing you told us to play the brilliant one, or to mock us, dunno really.Seeing how thread was almost dead for the first half, and how many people had something to criticize during and after, maybe this was the right choice.As you said>>47846931We're on closing time (obviously you told it after the thread, and after threathen to stop all the route), it's not too late to re-think on how reset this awful session.cont.
cont.Last but not least:>>47847605> you seem to be taking this unbelievably seriously. ^.^;;;Not him, but speaking for myself... yes.I cared a lot about this KY. I suppose I'm not the only one, and I also suppose I won't be the only one who'll go away (we already saw this a little during this thread votations).Sorry if in one single thread, I learned- We were fooled by you about the gamestyle. More than once. Or the only way to play with ease was being yan (and you lied us), or you wanna close in a hurry the route (you mocked us "I could have revived Lilly but no", you threatened to stop the route, you launched the bait about being at the end).- We got your blame for criticize (and you're right about insult-kun), for not having picked what you couldn't have seen, for seeing hallucinations about people who's abandoning the thread. Well, surely during the thread there were hostile players, but you never made an autocritic. Things that "successful people", as you labeled yourself, usually do.- We had lost our time for entire hours, and days waiting for a KY then delayed, for... finishing with the plot you planned and we couldn't escape.With us forced to see Lilly's death, Akira's gone away, and a lot of subplots like the teaset... well, placed under our nose only to see them vanish in the rain.I suppose the end will be something like alternate Neutral End from Rin's previous route.Such a shame it didn't happened on Lilly's or Rin's route. It's always Hanako to suffer bittersweet ends, or rushed closing stories. Really unlucky lady.I cried when before I read the thread. And they were rage, frustration tears. Not the ones you would cause, I hope. (as I said, Lilly's death were unbearable. Only anticlimatic as fuck and forced to "guide" us where you want).Probably you won't read my outburst, or you'll do it in a far future thinking: "what a emotional faggot, lucky me to avoid he continue to play". Probably you'll be right.cont.
cont.But that's what we, little emotional faggots unsuccessful people do.We rely on other people. We have feelings, dreams, enthusiastic reaction and affection on what other people do for/with us.And when we discover, for the n-th time, we were only pawns, our dreams & expectations are shattered because... well, we didn't even have the right to know it (unless we'll wait an undefinite amount of time hoping to don't miss the Q&A session), we go broken.So Akira, I know there a low probability you read this, or maybe even you care about my request.But I beg you, for once, to rethink what you did last session.I hope it's not a matter of time (we lost some weeks here and there), please consider our requests.Otherwise you'll arrive where you wanted to. You'll receive praise by whom appreciated your choices, you'll be able to start another route or maybe you'll quit writing for us, so yandere about Katawa Yandere... but you'll lose a supporter (I suppose more than one, but let's say only me). Not sure about this will impact you, maybe zero, but it wouldn't be the same for me.THE END.Now people if you wanna, you can start jocking on the little pussy who cried salty tears only fearing KY going to a bitter end.
>KY thread on sunso uhh, someone give me the cliff notes version
>Quest premise that would've been stale in 2012>QM is a shitter unable to admit to mistakesWhy do people follow this again?
>>47853480Basically, pic related
>>47853512> Why do people follow this again?>peopleIf you checked the thread, shitty QM was also the only one who was playing the first hour or so samefagging as hell
>>47847801>>47847940> we choose yan optionWe were chosing "dere" option: obviously not manipulating, poisoning or let committing suicide... dere option were: "emi, rin, run away!" after they tried to killed us every time they canBUTWEARETHEONESWHONEVEREVENATTEMPTEDA SOCIALBOSSFIGHTLet's remember it, forever.Well ok, let's continue: we were choosing "dere" option when Akira decided to re-launch the vote.But, as you finally learned yesterday,WEARETHEONESWHOCHOOSEAkira, you fraud.
I don't think Akira gives a shit about the quest's quality, and just wants to be wacky and randumb
>>47858694Once it wasn't this way. Or at least, there were no deceit.But for no reason we are worth to know, he decided this quest has to finish quickly, and to finish badly, throwing away all the good job he did 'til last threads.On the Steam group he announced he'll publish a rule guide.Really useful now after the mess in this thread, and 1-2 sessions from the end.About the reason he decided to suddenly close all... I start thinking he hates Hanako as Suriko did.Think about it: - in Lilly's route we never knew what Hanako did in the epilogue, as she didn't even existed.- In Rin's route Hanako was the only major character to die.- In Hanako's route first try, he clearly bored himself and he disappeared before finishing.- In this try after a good beginning (story and pace), he started jumping some weeks, probably 'cause of boredom, and analyzing last 2-3 threads he costantly manipulated us to let happen everything went wrong to led us to yesterday thread, and throwing us Juggernaut-Yandere-Hanako to gain some fondness to finish as soon as he can the route.
>>47858694Thats because Akira is very clearly Suriko
>>47860538> Steam group > annonuces there will be next route> implying someone will spend months following> a game rigged by a crazy psycho bitch... AGAIN
I don't know if you guys expect the QM to come back and read all thishe's obviously a little read: extremely narcissistic and believes he can do no wrong
