Look, I don't wanna be an asshole, but he's partly right, if a bit overly opinionated about it. I played it a while back, and it was honestly kind of boring, the characterisation was somewhat forced and cheesy, the music was dull I mean, even for BGM , the main character suffers from MC syndrome read: having absolutely no character at all , and the characters' backgrounds, the foci of the novel, were hardly explored. There isn't any sense of 'accomplishment' or 'revelation' or whatever you'd call 'feel of actually advancing the story' until the 'big reveal' that everyone claims is oh so sad for each character. Honestly, it feels like it was written by a middle schooler drunk on hormones.

-The writing focused on describing stuff you can literally see on your screen, since it's a VN, in absurd detail that slowed the action down to a halt. Like that ******* gate scene at the start.
-The pace is horrible, randomly switching between drawn-out bits where you do bugger-all and scenes where a bajillionty and one things happen over the span of 2 minutes (I'm looking at you, Rin), then back to the boringness, killing all momentum.
-The whole thing was heavily padded out with useless stuff that had absolutely nothing to do with the story and was only there to lengthen the damn thing.
-The characters are cliche and predictable.
-The story is cliche and predictable as ****.
-The MC is a ************* retard, though that's a long-standing harem anime tradition, so I guess I could let it slide.
-I spent 5 hours practicing my Joker impression and Hanako never even asked me if I want to know how she got those scars.

It's a harem if the objective is to get with them all at once. It is not. In fact there's only a single route where you can be with two girls and that's kind of a lesson in the route.

No, a harem is specified if the main character is surrounded by 3 or more females and/or love interests.

If the objective of a harem is to get all of them at once then that means a ******** of harem anime are not harem anime and a **** load more harem VNs are not Harem VNs.

At the same time though. Katawa Shoujo quickly focuses on whichever path you branch out towards, it's not like you juggle multiple girls at any point in it

I wouldn't say so as the common route seems to be just about as long as one route

It still doesn't change the fact that he's almost always surrounded by girls

Yes. That is the only aspect that's different. Here you only go down one route, whereas if it were an anime, you'd be going down all the routes at the same time.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but approximately 90% of harem animes are more about fan service than actually having an interesting story or anything fulfilling like that.

So yeah, comparing a visual novel, with its main focus being on story and character development, to a harem anime is pretty insulting.

Yeah, and Katawa Shoujo is also exactly like a loaf of bread. I mean it's a digital media, a VN, and it really has nothing to do with being a loaf of bread. But besides that, it's a loaf of bread exactly.

You just listed the reasons why this amateur VN is incredibly inferior to professional-made ones

-Though they do do this they don't do it a lot and opt for more monologues and interactions
-with professional writers they are better in pacing
-Longer VNs do this sometimes but it's not as glaringly bad as KS
-again writers

-There's a KKK kind of outfit in G-senjou no Maou and no one addressed it and it was a pretty cash scene whenever they did so 9/10 like skyrim with KKK (actually, wouldn't that be the Imperials kind of)

Well, I'm still gonna state it. The story itself is the smallest of my problems with the game. The way it was written and presented is what pisses me off. It could have been an actual masterpiece instead of just some meh VN if /a/ had decided to make a proper story instead of just producing the waifu simulator of their dreams. It had potential and wasted it.

But I don't find any problems with the writing or the pacing. I tried reading Clannad since I liked the anime, and that was a case of bad pacing, but I felt that Katawa Shoujo started out interesting so I was invested from the get-go. Clannad just kinda begun for no real reason.
You call it "padding" but it's actually just realism. The real world isn't about "advancing the story", things just happen because they happen. Katawa Shoujo takes its time for the sake of the characters and the relations between them.
Some characters are more cliché than others, but being cliché is not a bad thing by default. Some stories aim to make things never seen before, other stories use somewhat recognizable characters, but even if they're boring and predictable to you, they aren't boring or predictable to everyone. It all depends on the reader so it's subjective.
The MC IS a retard. That's just who he is.
So yeah that's my five cents. All it adds up to is that I like it and you don't. There's no right or wrong, there are just opinions.
Oh and congrats on getting into university ^_^

Broken people suck.

As a broken person hopelessly attracted to other broken people, I can guarantee you this: when they start threatening to kill themselves and see your lack of a sex drive as a lack of affection for them, you will wish you were with someone "normal."

Lilly was probably one of my favorites for quite a while (I eventually found myself more attached with Rin and Hanako, but I digress). I'll just say, if you're like I am and have a bit of a soft spot for semi-cliche'd romance, the ending will really resonate with you. Overall, she really has a good path, and is definitely an easy character to get attached to, but her route isn't quite as emotionally powerful as, say, Rin or Emi.

Lilly, Emi and Hanako I found have different unique experiences. These three are popular since Rin/Shizune have more specified kind of feel towards them, for example I found Rin's just filled with gibberish conversations and Shizune's lacking feels except for the bad ending.

What scene you at so far?

Ah, I'm sure you know now, but that happens when you make passive choices and don't approach any of the main characters. If your after Lilly just side with her in her fight with shizune, open up to her on the way back from the town, and generally just do the most involvement action while remaining passive towards the others.

it was actually cuzz i was passive towards hanako. the only choice i did differently was not approaching her in class when shizune and misha were arguing, and instead waiting for them

ur fuked kid   
   
most people get rly attached to lily, as she's really the most "normal" one with the more "real-world" problems. Good thing you got one of the heavy feeling routes out of the way quick. I would recommend ending with emi, as the feels are not that bad and it won't leave a bad taste in you when you finish the game.

I thinks steam sale was the original, but I might be wrong.
