Look up "anime soap opera" and you may or may not find one. KGNE is considered a classic as far as i know.

Sure, why not. Of course, you do a more refined way, such as animenfo.com in genre .

In ero-game history, yes. I doubt it will be in anime history.

ero game anime, while good to people who haven't played the game, generally don't seem as good to people who HAVE played the game. Either that's an indication of how good these games are, or I have no idea (look at the fan reaction to Kanon for instance)

So that's why KGNE's anime wouldn't get any recognition in Japan.

on the bright side, KGNE seems to be the most popular H game->anime ever in the US. Not counting H game->ero anime that sold because they were porn.

Personally I think KGNE is a strong candidate for an official western release, we may just have to wait a bit until one of the studios discovers it.

KGNE is not exactly a h-game classic... it's a really good h-game, but there are many others overshadow it...

the anime... if you like that kind of story and style, and don't mind whether it's anime or not, I think you can search for some japanese tv drama... Tokyo Love Story is a nice start, followed by Heaven's Coin, Green Apple Red Apple, etc. etc.

BTW, is there an english sub version of Tokyo Love Story? I can't seem to find one... nor on ebay (only closest was Chinese subs, and ugupoo knows how bad I am with those). Any help would be appreciated *hint hint*

You'll have to forgive me for doubting you, but i'd rather take the word of an actual japanese otaku (in this case kj) over someone who just happens to play h-anime or watch j-dramas.

you don't play h-anime, you watch h-anime, play h-game....

if you are familiar with Japanese h-game scene, there are tons of much more famous and better h-games than KGNE, and Age Soft is a practically a nobody when compared to those h-game giants like Elf, Alice Soft, KEY, e.go, etc. etc.

You guys are already over-rating the anime a lot, and now you are going to over-rate the game that you haven't even played?

Eh? I wouldn't call Age Soft a nobody even comparing to the larger bishoujo game publishers. And KgNE was voted the game of the year on E-Login and stayed on top of many reader's choice charts so I wouldn't call it an overrated game. I've played or tried many bishoujo games and many of them are from well-known companies such as the ones you named and were hyped before release time. However, I only found a handful of them that are on the same level of KgNE in terms of the scripts. Actually, none of the stories shaked me as much as KgNE. Utataremono from Leaf came very close but still lacked a bit in the drama department. Of course, it's just my opinion but I believe KgNE deserves to be a classic and is not overrated.

So was Key when they entered the market in 1998. The became huge with their first success from "Kanon." (and the previous work the makers did when they still were at Tactics, making "ONE").

"KimiNozo" was the ero-game that boosted the rank of the softhouse age to it's current status. I wouldn't consider age to be a "nobody." I mean, it's Chiyoda-Renmei alliance with Overflow and Nitro+ is already considered to be huge "threat" to the older softhouses such as Elf, F&C, and AliceSoft.

What we are seeing here in the current ero-game market is somewhat a changing of the guards. You have "newcomers" like CIRCUS, AlCot, TYPE-MOON, etc. gaining immense popularity over the "old guard." Not to say the "old guards" doesn't make great games. Alice's "DaiBancho Big Bang Age" was a great success, and Elf's "Raimuiro Senkitan" saw good sales.

May I suggest Shingetsutan Tsukihime? You should check out the game melty blood too - pretty damn cool.

Well, KGNE is indeed a really good h-game... maybe I'm just a bit of an old-timer... I just find these recent entries like KGNE and Tsukihime way overrated. They just don't compare to classics like YU-NO, Kanon, Es Formula... and as gameplay goes, they don't compare to the old Dragon Knight series, Words Worth, Castle Fantasia, etc.

Haven't got Fate/Stay Night, from what I heard so far, maybe it will change my view on the newer generation of h-games...

I agree with your point as well. "Kono sekai de utau mono YU-NO" can be considered to be the pinnacle of DOS-based ero-games by Elf. To do such an extent of art with 16 color shades and technique was gorgeous and magnificent. It was indeed a classic.

But classics are born from new ero-games as well. When "Kanon" was released in 1998, it was still in the "new game" section. After five-six years, it is reflected back today as a classic. Good games do exist today. Who knows which one will be viewed as a classic five-six years from now? The closest runners up would be "Kimi ga Nozomu Eien" and "D.C. ~da capo~."

Speaking of gameplays, newer games such as "Utawarerumono," "BALDR FORCE EXE," "D+VINE LUV" and "Phantom" are all excellent games worth playing. They compare highly, and even take it to the next level to the role playing games that you have suggested.

Ero-games, are just like anime. Classics are classics. But new stuffs are made so one day they can become classics themselves. And what more is better to live and play those games as it becomes reflected as a classic? It's like watching Miyazaki anime before he became famous versus someone who watches Miyazaki anime for it's name value. Either way is fine. But you do get to feel a sense of rapport if you grow up along with it as it becomes popular.

Speaking of which, I think D.C. ~da capo~ the anime is quite a good romance drama... maybe could be said similar to KGNE... The new series Kita-he ~Diamond Dust Drop~ looks interesting for the first couple episodes too...

oh, and it just occurred to me that Kimagure Orange Road is actually quite similar to KGNE. It's also a great classic, one of the first Japanese romance drama ever I think.

So basically...

It's between Da Capo and Kanon? Would they be similar in storyline or drama content?
