The reason why Eroge, Galge & BL games are so often in the School Setting…

samplecg_0301samplecg_0102samplecg_0201 This writer says the reason why school settings are so frequent is not just because they are high demand, it’s because 1) it’s the only thing they know how to write about [although White Album 2 breaks that?] and 2) because it’s the only thing they know how to write about.

In other words, the reason why is because they’re so easy to write (and they read so much of it that are school settings) and they don’t know how to write anything else that is why they write their eroge in school settings. (note: my interpretation. It’s not a translation.)

東京の都条例容姿が18歳未満に見えれば条例対象とするという一文があり、

そもそも何故、エロゲギャルゲBLで 18歳 の制服を着たヒロインものが多いのか考えてみた。

会社ではダメなのか?

会社でも女子社員はいるし、

社員旅行出張・昼休みもあるので、

会社舞台した恋愛ゲームを作れるはずである

そこで実際に作ると過程し想像してみた。

まずは出社し、

メールの確認や書類の作成

出張や打ち合わせなどを行い昼休みなる。

と、考えた時ふと疑問に思うことがあった。

果たしてゲーム会社社員

この業務フローに沿って働いているのだろうか?

彼らはゲームの開発・作成を専業としているわけで、

多少の企画会議はあっても

客先と打ち合わせや出張した

異性の社員と話たりするような場面が極端に少ないのではないかと。

その状況下で新しい恋愛ゲーム作成を企画した時、

異性とのトキメキをえがくとしたら真っ先に思い浮かぶのは

最後に体験した学校になるはずだ。

舞台が決まれば後はユーザーが喜ぶようなエロい仕掛けが組み込まれ

徐々にエスカレートするのは分かる気がする。

つまり、人気だから学園モノが多いというのは100%の理由ではなく、

作り手の意向によってユーザーが左右されてしまっている面もあるのではないだろうか。

オタクキモイと指をさされるのは実に不愉快なので、

正当な評価をしてもらえるよう作り手と遊び手一丸となってよい文化にしていきたいものである

    • Only to foreigners. In Japan, the lowest allowed age of consent by law is 13. Though you’d be hard pressed to find a prefecture that hasn’t changed it to 15-16 in their area apparently.

      • “Only to foreigners.”

        You are “correct” in that what I consider adult and what they do may be different. But, I also never said it was wrong for them (not my place to decide). It’s outside *my* comfort zone.

    • Oh, I never really thought you said it was wrong. I just meant that you were right, but only to us foreigners and not them. Your comfort zone is your business dude. No issue there.

      • On the other hand, it’s somewhat amusing to watch people who get worked up about these sort of things. “We” (generic) let our kids play games like Halo 3, yet get upset when they see sexually oriented pictures. Seems sort of backwards 😉

  • Isn’t it also because one of the main target audiences for these games guys who are still in high school or have just left?
    And because it is more realistic to have a lot of free time in high school?

  • Isn’t is just because people can.. relate to high school? And most would like the idea of high school stories in which amazing things happen they mostly never experienced? The formula works, so its overused as fuck.

    • I share the same sentiment.

      Highschool usually means a lot of free time, a lot of random people and something that most people can relate to. College means less free time but more people, which unfortunately is negated because it’s something less people can relate to.

      Honestly though, I think they just chose Highschool because it’s easier. The characters doesn’t have to be as sophisticated, and we all have rose tinted glasses looking back at things such as school etc.

      It’s overused as fuck though, I couldn’t agree more.
