Kotaku Reviews Kara no Shojo

KotakuKaranoShojoTitle

Hey everybody, Tay here.  Kotaku’s published another VN review, this time focusing on Kara no Shojo.  Richard Eisenbeis, the author, leads with this statement which concisely articulates the points of the review itself:

Kara no Shojo (The Girl in the Shell) is simply one of the most graphic and disturbing visual novels I have ever played. It is also one of the most captivating.

Richard Eisenbeis had previously reviewed Saya no Uta (while his feelings were mixed on the game, he did recommend it with a Kotaku “Yes”).  Kara no Shojo similarly gets a “Yes”, but it comes with a caveat, pictured below:

Whether or not you like Kotaku, it’s certainly widely-read in the gaming community, and is slowly evangelizing our little-known genre.  Let’s just hope Richard picks a less-depressing/-disturbing game next time.

EDIT: Thanks to Daniel who reminded me in the comments that Richard Eisenbeis also reviewed If My Heart had Wings on Kotaku. Link below:

Still haven’t enough courage to read Kara no Shoujo. I can stand something like Saya no Uta, but KnS sounds like something on an entirely new level…

OOT:Actually I was expecting an article about Sunrider KS on fuwa (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1500482054/sunrider). Regardless of people’s mixed reaction at his past work (Homeward), I think he deserves a coverage here.

If you were able to stomach Saya no Uta I think you will be fine with Kara no Shojo.

I hate to be off topic here, but could someone pretty please upload the “Voice.pac” file from Majikoi (the first one, not the S) or just point me to a link somewhere else. Mine says it’s corrupt, and I’d hate to redownload all 6.9 GB all over again just to get this one sodding file. I’m not forcing anyone but I’ve scour the Internet high and low to no avail, so this is my only option. Again, sorry

I’m extremely impressed along with your writing skills
and also with the layout for your blog. Is this a paid subject matter or did
you modify it your self? Anyway stay up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to look a nice weblog like this one these days..
