Katawa Shoujo: Rin Tezuka by EduardoGaray Katawa Shoujo: Rin Tezuka by EduardoGaray
What to say about Katawa Shoujo, a game/visual novel about dating disabled girls? i raised an eyebrown at first, but started playing it because some people said it was awesome. 

So i started playing, got into Rin Tezuka route (an artist girl without arms, how awesome is that?)  and, oh boy, that was an experience. 
A touching, sad,  yet beautiful tale about restoration and hope and to find oneself and to find peace. (Thats my interpretation at least!)

It was heart wrenching but just the ending (the good ending) made all the tears and sadness worthy.
I dont remember being so emotionally attached to a videogame since Xenogears or Metal gear solid 3.

An amazing piece of art that really captures the essence of her route.

KS has destroyed many a man, myself included.

Aw, but why would you draw her crying? I really felt a connection with her character pretty early on. She talks about how she feels like she's always drowning, I just imagine that she wants to be accepted and to be able to communicate, but just don't know how, and it's like she feels like she's drowning even though she wants to swim to the surface and just don't know how. This self-realization of her situation made her path really heart-wrenching for me, and just the scene of her sleeping on the desk and tears start coming out really got to me. It's like even though she might not consciously know (or maybe she does) why she's crying, subconsciously she knows she should be crying...

I really wish they would make a full-length animated movie about her route, maybe since we are in a community of artists, if we can find some fans who are also animators, and we can get some of the original writers from KS and musicians onboard, this could easily raise enough money on kickstarter to be made... To pay the artists, writers, musicians, voice actors, and to rent space so the animators could work full time... I think that would be awesome. Although I would definitely change a few things, like for one, Hisao tells Rin he loves her too at the end, dammit... >:-0

haha i wanted to represent that moment when she finally let it out all the despair and asks whats wrong with her. 
I still plan to do a new one with her smiling like in the end of the good ending. 
And Hisao was a jerk till the very end uh? xD

My heart really sank whenever she seems to recognize that there's something "wrong" with her. It's better when someone is kind of crazy but doesn't realize it, but she knows and wants to be "better" and knowing that she felt that way really broke my heart. And Hisao pissed me off a lot through this route. I totally would have handled those situations differently... But I've always been really good at listening and being empathetic so I can see things from their point of view before I get mad at someone for doing or saying something that might not meet my standards for what should have been said or done. I guess I could be empathetic toward Hisao too since he had his own problems to worry about, but still, he did piss me off... lol

And I am REALLY looking forward to seeing any of your future work, especially if you are going to do a happy Rin. :-)

ah yes, Hisao is always a jerk, like in every route haha but he has his own problems so i cant really blame him too much.
