^From what I've read elsewhere, it seems the English version of the game was kind of butchered. I.e. Japanese version may have longer routes and/or decent epilogues.

This might be interesting for those planning to spend time in Japan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_zE2YWxZCA

I think the Japanese version is supposed to have whole other routes, if the CGs I half-remember seeing mean anything. I think I remember a younger Yuka and Miyu in a red dress. And alive.

In other words, DAMN THOSE BUTCHERS.

EDIT: Oh, wait, I think you're right.

Wikipedia
A 'Full Voice Version' of the game was released in Japan on July 25, 2003, including full voice acting (apart from the protagonist) and extended scenarios for each character. The voice assets from this version of the game, but not the extended scenarios, were utilized by G-Collections in their English translation of the game, which was released on October 20, 2003


Oh well, DAMN THEM NONETHELESS.

Finished Edelweiss... two decent routes (out of five) but overall nothing special. I do like the music in Overdrive games a lot though.

The extra scenes in Crescendo seem to be 'what if' scenarios. Though some of them seem quite grounded (Ayame looking after Ryo after he presumably gets injured at his job; Kaori looking at coffee mugs with Ryo), others (eg Miyu's) obviously couldn't follow on from the storyline in the game. I guess the best description for them would be 'bonus content'.

Ending the game with a "The Truth is not yet revealed!"

Seriously? I also have a hard time believing the fetus killing Enomoto.. I don't even know if this is fact or the most accepted theory. Having to read theories and timelines and stuff outside the game because it is incomplete is frustrating.

I also don't even feel like getting the few last TIPs and bad endings. Can't really say I didn't enjoy it though.

Going through Crescendo again, I've found a lot more appreciation for Kaori's route.

And being more familiar with Japanese culture now, I also find it less absurd that she's still a virgin at age 25-30.

Article about schoolgirl skirt length: http://www.letsjapan.markmode.com/index.php/2009/03/23/teachers-promote-proper-schoolgirl-skirt-length-poster/

Sometimes they really are quite short.

In Europe I've never seen a girl school uniform with skirt that didn't go below the knees.

I've owned the Kanon OST for almost three years. I can't believe I never noticed before now that it has a hidden track. Maybe because I never feel the motivation to listen to the short version of the ending theme, and only hear it when I used the CD as a sleeping soundtrack. Then I glance and notice that a two-minute song has a seven-minute runtime on my mp3 player...

Trying to get back into Grisaia. Decided against my instinct to stop in the middle of Amane's route and switch to someone else; combination of sunken cost (I'll never be able to pick the mood up where I left off) and time letting myself recover from Amane's unexpectedly disturbing thought processes.

And yet, I'm uneasy. She and Yuuji have too good a relationship. They're playful, sexually-open, genuinely devoted to each other, and are talking about the future. It's like Kotori's ending all over again...except I can't be more than a third of the way through the route. I know things are gonna go straight to hell somehow, and I'm not looking forward to how.

Distracting myself with Dungeons of Dredmor and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night in the meantime.

On the one hand, the impulse to suggest rather than command speaks well, that they're not going to force a specific style of dress onto girls.

On the other hand, my feminist impulse is shouting, "UP YOURS, you narcs!" In a way, it would almost be preferable if they explicitly altered the dress code, since at least they would have the excuse of it being a school uniform, rather than trying to indirectly enforce a societal standard of "dignity" at the expense of personal comfort and freedom, and the community complaints they mention just feel like it's their own damn problems, not the schoolgirls'.

Granted, I know that's also my individualist cultural upbringing talking, as well, but it's hitting too close to US "modesty culture" for my comfort, and controlling women's dress tends to feed into a host of other problems.

We interrupt this long stretch of no one talking to bring a special announcement.
