so all the parents in this game suck
I had too, it's because of the picture Kaimeanogo posted - it's hosted on nihilismandcupcakes dot com, which apparently it's site known for hosting malwares too.
She isn't married, she's just stuck with an asshole because of burocracy. Lysa should consider to tell her friend about what's going on.
Also, FUCK KOICHI PARENTS. She has the right to have a job and Koichi is the one who should complain if that was the case, not you - he doesn't, but that's another story.
Also, FUCK THAT LINE ABOUT HIM BEING TOO SOFT. Just FUCK.
Koichi's dad isn't so bad, but he's kind of like Lysa's mom in the sense that he's still completely unhelpful because Sachie clearly wears the pants.
Sachie needs to STFU and GTFO.
I lied about there being no Android release .... it just came out.
brb Genji time
Dear translators. discrete and discreet are TWO DIFFERENT WORDS.
sadly this one is so common i wouldn't be surprised if the arbiters of the english language eventually gave up and said go for it.
(Yes, I have a completely stupid and petty pet peeve :) )
For once this doesn't please me. Heart is broke, I'm going to stick with our darling Ebi-chan.
Not Lysa's mom! But seeing as she's stuck under her husband's thumb, she's. Not much better off, honestly.
gah, malware warnings won't let me read the last page.
can someone tell me what happened?
Summed up: Lysa burbled to Boss Hana about Ebi-chan's work ethic and decision-making abilities. Boss Hana thinks they'll make an "A-OK combination."
Shohei and Akiko invited Lysa out for drinks, Kiyoto continued to have some issues related to respecting personal boundaries, the co-workers gossipped a bit about Ebi-chan and the business trip and while Shohei was in the washroom Lysa 'fessed up to Akiko about sharing the room with Ebi-chan and spending the night in his (passed-out drunk) arms. Akiko insisted Lysa should forget about it because married, but Lysa totally can't.
Then Lysa got home and found her in-laws there and Koichi's mom threw a bitchfit about Lysa not acting like a proper wife and demanded she quit her job.
You know, there are a lot of parents involved. Do you think we're going to meet Ebi-chan ones too? And will they be good, reasonable people?
I hope so.
On the grounds that he had to get it from somewhere? :D
Played Genji's route; as expected, Ebi-chan is still the best.
Lysa. Oh god, Lysa.
I know your pain.
Sorry about that. My point: UP YOURS, LYSA'S DAD.
Where is my personal Ebi-chan?
Oh gosh which picture was it that I posted that keeps blocking everyone? I'm really sorry I'll fix it as soon as I figure it out.
Fucking. Called it.
I don't understand her dramatic shocked face at all, but I really kind of like Akiko. Her oblivious angst slinging in this route (along with Lysa's other two friends) aside, she's a pretty good friend to the protagonist and I keep waiting for someone to give her some contacts and a better hairstyle and fix her up with Shohei or something.
It's the "Waht a plot twist" one, I cheked with firebug XD
I want to join in on that conversation about parents that do that, but I think I'd rage too violently and incoherently for that to be a good idea.
So I'll just. Sit over here. And glare daggers at Lysa's dad. Because my God, I have a problem with parents who push their kids, not because they're scared their kids will fail and don't want that to happen (I mean, I don't think it's okay but I understand the intention behind it), but because they don't want to look bad because they're kid is "shameful".
Children are not a fucking tool to be dicked around with because you have a fucking reputation to keep up. Stop it.
*takes a step back* I'm going to be floating around BF and trying to figure out the translator tools to cool down, yes, sounds like a plan. And imagining Ebi-chan and Lysa in a happy, healthy, stable relationship, where Ebi-chan's reasonable parents become the best damn grandparents ever. This is my happy place right now.
Ah, thank you very much. I believe I have fixed it now?
It appears to be fixed. I didn't get another warning from Chrome. :)
But of course it is only with their child(ren). They'll immediately point out another person with the same problem as their child but have the gall to chastise them for it.
I'm purposely ignoring what the parents are saying because I already hear stuff like that from my mom. She has told me countless times that my husband's career should always be put before mine and that I shouldn't try to get too far ahead in my job because it would get in the way of me being a good wife.
And yet she tells me I should try and pursue a master's degree.
Same issue here. I'm expected to marry a well-off guy so that he can support me and my oh so glamorous lifestyle (that mainly consists of me romancing 2D fictional characters) , but then what are you sending me to college for?
I'm not an accessory.
This idea seems to hold a high prevalence considering that we are living in so-called 'post-feminist' societies. One memory that sticks in my mind from high school: I was asked by a male classmate what I wanted to do when I graduated, and I replied that I wanted to do a degree in Fine Arts. His immediate response (not even joking), "Oh, so you're going to be a trophy wife, then?" He truly didn't understand why I got pissed at him for saying that. I never did end up doing that Fine Arts degree.
I need to stop being Miss Whining Whiner McWhinerson in this forum. I'm so sorry.
Never be sorry for being yourself or speaking your mind
Those who matter will listen and love you no matter what
You're not whining. You're venting legitimate emotions that have been bottled up for too long because everyone around you kept telling you you weren't allowed to feel like that. This isn't whining. This is far, far from whining.
I've come to a revelation about Voltage games. The guy in the forefront of the choice splash screen or advertisement image is always, always the tsundere.
And in the group shots, the stoic one is always at the very back.
There is no need to repress yourself in these kind of situation. It just makes things worse, holding back.
Where is this from? I want to watch it.
Okay, reached end of the pages.
re:post feminist, yet not:
My mother wears the pants in the family and she's always telling me that I have to get a good job so that I can be independent and not have to rely on a man. Yay, decent parents still exist~? This might stem from the fact that she considers my dad to be pathetic and useless in many areas of life.
What is this madness!? Don't they know that cold emotionless stares are the pixel equivalent of chocolate croissants?
Howl's Moving Castle.
WATCH IT, IT'S GREAT
also, just today, my mother told me that if i get married, i have to learn how to cook and clean the house.
yes, because i will do all the cooking and cleaning and child rearing while my husband works his perfect 9-to-5 job. We will also live in a small house with a white picket fence in a suburban town with two and a half children and a dog and the children will have good, Christian names.
And there will always be an apple pie in the windowsill.
I have absolutely nothing to contribute for this conversation because my dad makes these guys look like mother Theresa so.
Sachie's kimono-and-designer-sunglasses design weirds me out a little.
Hugs for everyone in this thread, seriously.
Absolutely. All of the hugs.
What do you mean this isn't a hug gif?
