Collage of Naysay

Post by myshoesarebrown on 2012-02-11, 16:12

For the past week and a half or so that I have spent traveling the barren wasteland that is the internet, I've gathered a decent handful of reactions to Mentaru Shoujo. I saved them as I went along, and I had enough to make a "collage" of sorts. It's not organized, but whatever. From various web sites. I guess you can say it's Version 1, because I'll keep gathering similar reactions, and as I get more and more, I'll make even bigger collages.

You'll note that on some of the posts in this collage, you can see part of usernames from wherever I got it. This was not to antagonize those people, but the date of their post was there, and the date is what I wanted. You know, so we can look back in the future. I could have blocked out their usernames, but it wasn't worth it. You can only see half of the names anyway, not enough to find out who they are.

Picture is quite large, so a direct link instead of imbedding:

Their resistance only makes my penis harder. Except for the Reddit part, that was totally uncalled for, we're not that afwul Laughing.

tbh, the controversy and negative initial reception of ks was similar to this... with similar expressions of outrage and disgust

We steamroll oppositions. Metaphorically and literally.

Also, this should be in the GENERAL discussion, it's not fanart nor fanwork of any merit to the concept pertaining to MS.

But honestly, who cares. I think i've said this before, but I'm making this for myself, I don't know about the others, so I honestly don't give two flying gophers what anyone thinks.

I'm pretty sure initial reaction to KS has been relatively similar. If this game ends up being as good, it would change with time.

You have no idea how many centuries I spent brooding over where to put this. In the end I just flipped a coin.

Which is actually funny, since we are creating everything from scratch while KS was based on a "Schuppen Harnische" manga doodle from Raita... xD

There actually were people who were smart enough to remember that and accuse the KS devs of ripping someone off. Laughing

Whatever. All you guys can do is to not get caught by Fox News before you churn out something awesome. Wink

Having seen the dev forums, I can say that this is being done very tastefully. Honestly, I had originally thought that this idea would be impossible to carry out tastefully, but the devs have done a fantastic job at planning this out. I've been out of the loop for a little while but from what I know, the project has been planned out very well. I didn't see anything that would make the VN tasteless or insensitive.

I can understand those who say that this is ripping off Katawa Shoujo though. The underlying premise of MS was based on KS, and the name is even based off of KS. But that's where the similarities stop. Also, Mentaru shoujo is just a working title.

Quoted for truth - even the characters, visualization and everything were discussed and built from scratch. I am surprised we made it this far.

Oops... I accidentally casted a vote saying the devs are all evil and ripping off KS... my bad xD Nah but srsly, haters gonna hate. I was sceptical when I first heard about the project, but I then realised that all of my sceptical arguments were pretty much exactly the same as those of other people's scepticisms towards KS, and we all know how that one turned out... Anyways I'm sure we all know better than to feed the trolls so it's all good Cool

I took a screenshot from the game "Liberal Crime Squad" and edited it. Made by the guy who made Dwarf Fortress(though other people update it now).If you're interested, here's the wiki.

What's the difference between MS and any other Romance VN's?

I get it, you guys are going for the mental disorder theme, which is good. Being inspired, MS may be similar KS, but I see the developers trying to create an original story with an original cast of characters.

Now imagine taking away the disorder theme, how similar would this VN be with every other VN? I can see very little coverage before overlapping another idea from a different VN.

So guys, don't get discouraged. Be proud that you're trying something new, it takes guts to get a team together to make a full fledged VN. It takes even more guts to try a theme that no one else has really touched upon.

Back in my grandparents' day, this was the same exact reaction the public had to "a decent white lady marrying a n*****."

Back in my parents' day, this was the public's reaction to "a couple of f****** trying to destroy the sanctity of God's institution."

I've come to the conclusion that the public acts outraged purely because they get a collective boner from acting so ridiculously outraged. That, or they truly and honestly believe that every little change they come across in life is the disaster to top all disasters. I say to you, let their minds be blown by that which they cannot handle! I'm sure they'll get used to it just in time to freak out over the next big change that comes a generation from now Wink

I just got here, but there seems to be a big association between this forum and reddit, is there a reason why or someone just happens to post about it there?
Just some advice for the devs, I suggest being totally ignorant when it comes to other sites, as in don't make it noticeable you browse one or another. If you do make it clear you browse a certain site, such as reddit, it'll not only turn people off to the idea, but it will cause drama and trolling.

Spoiler:
Also anyone who doesn't like the idea cause of mentally disabled girls, it's just abunch of normalfags, ignore em'.
