Narcissu


Okay, super slowpoke here. I've read the first Narcissu long ago, but it never had too great of an impact on me. I did get a bit sad reading it, but it wasn't anything too emotional for me. I read Narcissu 2 and stopped after a few chapters and have been picking at it slowly whenever I feel in the mood to read some Hospice Tales. I finished the 2nd part today, and I have to say that the last few chapters are soul shattering. I was reading it on the bus and couldn't help crying a bit. Nobody was around, but it's a bit embarrassing to cry in public over a scene. Seriously, those last few chapters...

I'd actually recommend reading Narcissu 2 before reading 1. It's a prequel anyway, so it's not like you'll lose anything. It makes the ending of Narcissu 1 a bit more emotional as well. If you've already read 1 and didn't like it enough to try 2, I'd say you might want to give the 2nd one a chance. It starts off with a pace that's actually a bit slower than 1, so you may think it'll pretty much be the same, and I believe it's actually a little longer than 1. But that's good, because I felt in part 1 you didn't really get to know the characters well enough. You mostly got a vague impression of their personalities, but in part 2 they really go into depth on the characters.

This isn't really a review, just felt like sharing with you guys some thoughts on what I just finished in my backlog. Time to finish something else now. I had an essay due today that I missed the deadline for because of my procrastination and underestimating how much I'd have to do for it. I'll just submit it tomorrow, it's not like I care too much about the grade I get so long as I pass, and 10 points off this essay for being late won't cause enough damage to actually harm my grade.

Ah, I've heard of this VN. It certainly looks very emotional.

>I'd actually recommend reading Narcissu 2 before reading 1

Duly noted. Thanks!

>it's not like I care too much about the grade I get so long as I pass

Yeah, at the end of the day that's all that really matters. Good luck.

Everything Chiyo's Dad said, pretty much.

>Nobody was around, but it's a bit embarrassing to cry in public over a scene.

I get teary-eyed so often out of boredom that I could just play it off as being bored.. ;_;

I have two essays to do. About 10 pages each, and three separate labs. Happy days for all.

I know I've played the first Narcissu, but I can't remember what happened. I guess this is a good time to start playing the second.

Seconding this for the reasons you've already stated.

I want to read something emotional and touching, so I'll put them in my ever-growing backlog.

That's what I thought. But it all adds up and it may be the thing that stands between you passing and failing that topic ;_;
