Katawa Shoujo: which route should I pick next? *no spoiler*

#1fakewarsPosted 11/4/2013 6:25:17 AM
I have finished all ending on Emi's and Lilly's route, and I don't think I'm patient enough to finish all routes, the third one will be the last. I don't like Emi's route at all, her problem is just too cliched, Lilly's route is much better and sadder, only that I'm disappointed with the happy ending, I like sad story. So, for the four remaining routes, which one is saddest?

You're a brave man posting this here since PCH largely abhors VNs, never mind something like KS. Anyway, if you're looking for sad, go for Shizune's bad end.

BTW you do know that there are happy/bad endings for each, right?

Hanako's 'good' ending made me feel like trash and she has the worst bad ending by far. She also has a neutral ending that was bittersweet. Her best ending is Lilly's good ending imo.

I didn't like shizune's route at all, Rin's was mildly interesting but she is just soooo weird.

Yeah, I even have my own modified flowchart to keep track on my progress

By 'worst' bad ending, do you mean sad or just terribly written? I'm actually thinking for Misha for my next play since I'm curious what her disability is, does it something surprising?

Misha doesn't have a route nor a disability. She's only at the school to study sign language because she wants to teach it once she graduates. It's entirely possible she has ADHD though, and some people speculate that she might have Angelman Syndrome but I think she functions too well (perfectly normally in fact, aside from the fact that she's always excited) for that.

If you want though, you can sleep with her. That's how you unlock Shizune's bad end. As I said though, Shizune's route was far and away my least favorite. It's the longest, yet you only get one decision the entire time. The only thing I enjoyed about it at all was meeting Shizune's dad and a lot of people hate him. There just wasn't any character progression from anyone at all aside from Misha becoming a bit more serious right before final exams. Even Shizune's brother had more development in Lilly's route (I forget which route it tells you that she and another of the characters are cousins, you might already know).

As for Hanako's bad route, it wasn't poorly written imo, vs Shizune's whose felt terribly rushed.

Eh, I didn't tell him what leads up to it, how you do it (though with one choice there's obviously only one way to do it), or what the consequences are aside from "bad end". I'd really advise against her path though if you don't plan on playing through all of them. If you plan on coming back to finish later then go ahead.

Also, there's a "Worst End" in addition to all of the girls' various paths. It's hilarious depending on how morbid your sense of humor is. To get it, just don't lock in to any of the girls' paths and you'll hang out with Shinji on the day of the festival instead of whichever girl. Definitely make sure to do that since it will only take you a few minutes if you fast forward through the first chapter (I think it ends in the first chapter as well if you get it).

I heard Rings I'd good but it is the only one I haven't done. Go for Shizune

I'd say Rin, though it's worth doing hanako as well. Shizune's route my least favorite so I'd say skip that one.
