Keiichi Maebara moves into the small village of Hinamizawa near the Gifu prefecture. He is warmly welcomed by the locals and joins an after-school game club where he bonds with his classmates: Rena, Mion, Satoko, and Rika. However, once he finds a crumpled old newspaper detailing a bizarre murder case, he becomes curious about the history of the village.

(question arcs)
i have really complicated feelings on this so far. i think it definitely deserves the hype it gets, the characters are amazingly written and the mystery is really gripping but (say the line bart) it was really bogged down by the pacing. looking back on it so far i cant really imagine the story being trimmed that much without it losing a lot of its impact but its such a fucking slog in the moment that it makes me really hesitant to recommend it to anyone. still even though ive had massive parts of the answer arcs spoiled already im excited to see what they have in store

      all four chapters combined is like 40 hours. $20 for 40 hours seems reasonable imo

    the classroom scene in tatarigoshi where keiichi tries rubbing sakoto's head and the twist at the very end of watanagashi are the only two scenes which stuck out to me as something i really liked so far

      a lot of these ideas are cool but very rarely does it actually result in something which is engaging to actively read. maybe i just don't like the amateurish, light novel-esque writing of visual novels idk

    this actually is improving with each chapter but going from bad to mediocre is not enough to make this feel any less like a chore to read

    The last few days of ch1 were like some of the most unnerving, creepy and suspensful things I've ever experienced. Especially one scene which feeds off of a reocurring nightmare I keep having, when I know someone or something evil is knocking on my apartment door and I can't lock it.
