おハロ！I’d like to say that I have been around the VN community for a long time… am very experienced with it, and have ready many to this day. But my total list of actual completed VN’s numbers at around 10 (not including the small super lewd or very focused -sono hanabira- ones, which bring the list up to roughly 20).
My favorite VN overall that i’ve read is probably either Saya no Uta or G-Senjou no Maou, though if I HAD to pick one or the other, I would probably say the former.
The VN I am currently playing (and enjoying incredibly) is Clover Day’s.
And the one i’m looking forward to reading the most is by Cube, called Your Diary (been hyped for this one for longer than i’d like to mention) which the art happens to be done by my favorite artist of basically ever.
I’ve never actually read any of the Key VN’s, but have watched basically all of the anime for them, and to be honest will likely not ever do so, simply because of my bias towards art styles when choosing which ones to read. In my opinion the stories are somewhat decent for them, but at the same time hard to follow and not enough to keep me interested completely. Not to mention I basically was suffering through the entirety of the second season of the first Key series I watched (and was one of my first anime ever), Clannad, due to the sheer hatred and disgust I feel towards Nagisa on an incredibly personal level. But I very much enjoy being able to talk about and share my experiences with VN’s as a whole with people.
