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.

I think the restoration part is especially true, since - in order to get Rin's route, you are pretty much within one bad choice of getting the PICNIC ending.

yeah its the hardest route to get into, since you have to give bad choices to all the other girls. 
That also add to the theme of recovering and going forward even when you are at your lowest i think. :)

I love this piece, amazing work you did here, and Rin is my favorite cuz as an artist I can feel for her.

Rin is amazing, i still havent played all the other routes and i already know she is my favourite, she is so perfect in her imperfection, if that makes any sense.

It  makes sense, the other routes are nice too. But I made the effort to understand Rin's character because she reminds me of those tragic artists of the past.

ah yeah, seeing her struggling to express herself was pretty tough to see.  (i'm even thinking she may had a certain level of autism, but i'm really ignorant on that matter so i dont know) 
I literally wanted to punch Hisao and that creepy art teacher more than once. xD
