[Guest Editorial]: Visual Novel Protagonists and Their Self-Insert Natures

VN protagonists — some of them have such bright personalities even a rock looks more interesting than them. This mostly allude to VN protagonists and their self-insert natures, and is something I covered in this guest post of mine for The Geek Clinic.

The Geek Clinic

This week I would like to present a post written by Kai of Deluscar, who has just celebrated his blog’s fifth anniversary! A massive Congratulations and Thank You to Kai!

Greetings, Kai of Deluscar here, and today I’m on The Geek Clinic to analyze and dissect visual novel protagonists. But before I begin, I would like to point out what I say here doesn’t necessarily apply to ALL visual novels, but enough of them feature this type of protagonist to allow one to decipher a pattern.

A visual novel has a structure similar to reading a picture book, and is an incredibly immersive medium. But another one significant reason that contribute to it’s immersion is because of visual novel protagonists and their self-insert natures.

Yuri Talk: Being a yuri fan is suffering, and I love every second of it (By Kai)

“Being a yuri fan is suffering” — I know this statement is something a lot of people who watch yuri anime can relate to. At the same time, I’m here to claim that it’s actually not that bad, which I will allude to this guest post I wrote for Yuri Nation. Feel free to visit his blog and read on if you’re interested.

The Yuri Nation

Len shipping hard. Len shipping hard.

Greetings, Kai of Deluscar here once again, and I’m here to talk a bit about yuri shipping.

Note from OG: To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Kai (and to avoid being added to the List of Kai) the king has graced us with a visit to share his toughts on being a yuri fan and the trials and tribulations of there being more subtext/soft yuri than canon yuri…yet still finding bliss from it. I personally am used to it and work with what I get but let us see what King Kai has to say about the subject.

5 Year Anniversary


Well, damn. 5 years.

My Favorite Aikatsu Songs


Welp. Here we go.

Admittedly though, I have been trying to do a “Top 5 Aikatsu songs” for awhile, but it’s just impossible since every damn song is just so good. One guy in my twitter TL found an Aikatsu Sorter link and through that, I have been looking up at the ceiling, and frying every single brain cells of mine contemplating on the best Aikatsu songs — this one particularly hard because the lists will be consecutive (saved though, by the fact that the lists will be divided by seasons). Then I figure, why don’t I just share these lists here? I won’t be saying why I like these songs or stuffs (the post will get too long), but feel free to ask me about my choices in the comment section… if you even Aikatsu.
