Honestly, the girls all have English names in the DMM version anyway. They don't always match the Japanese name, though, even if it's not a name that's actually Japanese (Gazania/Treasure Flower).

If nothing else, just name them one of the two names they have in JP and be done with it.
I thought these were only for girls who were featured on banners? So there might be some still without official names.

But yes, that's a good idea as well, and comes with the bonus of not accidentally naming someone after a future girl. There are a lot of ways that they could handle the naming problem, they just need to go ahead and implement one of these.
It might be, but if they had done it from the start we'd have still avoided Orchid Wydler and Cactace.
I feel like I'm the only guy here who isn't autistic over the FKG names.
I'll call them whatever Nutaku does instead of what their japanese name in english actually is so that people know what I'm talking about instead of having to learn another set of names.

If you guys want to change their names and other random shit fine, just don't expect most people that play to care (most people that play FKG in english don't come here).

You guys are fucking awful at getting your message across so its no wonder its taking so long to happen.
I don't really care either, but if Nutaku is going to stick with the names DMM is used to, they may as well revert the launch ones.

What's sillier to me is how whoever runs the wikia also stubbornly refused to budge on even acknowledging Nutaku's names for a while, until they finally added a line in to avoid confusion.

Just got to Chapter 7

Fucking Italian fascists? Really? REALLLY? Beatrice secret was that she was an Italian fascist. Jesus Christ.

Is this the Ushiromiya family secret? They have 10 tons of dirty gold? Seriously a good part of that gold is probably Holocaust gold. Or if not then looted from Russia, Greece etc and other places Italy/the Axis invaded.

If they ever revealed the gold, Israel/Greece/every Eastern Euro country would be jumping on them so fast Mossad wouldn't even have a chance.

AND WHY IS BEATRICE CALLING THE OTHER ITALIANS TRAITORS? Why is Kinzo/Willard giving a history lesson of the "Brave" Italians who never surrendered? They were Fascists. Ushiromiya money is based on goddamn Fascist looting and war plundering. Christ I hope they never make it out of October 6th, war profiteering assholes.
Yeah, long novels can be good, but they can be bad. You can have 843493K words, but it all be bullshit with bad consistence, bad plot, bad characterization, etc. This is not the case for Umineko, but it's not perfect like some people paint it. And the romance between Yasu and Battler, which is kinda a focus, is badly written. I have a hard time believing it was so intense when it was just some 13 years old with a crush on a jerk.
I think that's the point though. She never had any interactions with boys her age, so she over-romanticized how relationships work, since she probably only had novels and such to work off of. Most people would learn more about Battler and get disillusioned, or they'd make other friends and gradually forget about him. Yasu did neither, and ended up stuck in romance chuunibyo land for 6 years.

Once she'd invested 6 of the most important years of her life in it, it'd be really hard to just let it go, unless Battler shows up to either shatter her illusions or start making them real. That's why breaking his promise wouldn't have been a sin, if he'd just let Shannon know the answer.
Umineko is not perfect, nothing is perfect. But as a mystery, it hits home quite closely.

Also, romantic interactions are subjective (some call Clannad a melodramatic piece of shit, others the extreme opposite), and, in my opinion, I see no bad writing in their relationship.

Yasu is a child who has no sexual organs, no identity, personality problems and got in love with Battler when he/she actually thought it was something significant (which, at least for him, it wasn't really all that).

Not only that, she/he was born from an incest (mental problems are there for a some other reason than his/her tragic accident as a baby).

Not only that, with all of her/his identity problems, she decided to give love a chance yet again with George. By that time, after all that delusional stuff happens and also Kanon's situation (her/his secure escapism), she/he end up solving the epitaph and it's revealed that everyone she/he fell in love with so far were all her blood related parents.

You call it shit writing, and I call it genius messed up situation leading to absolute despair.

To each his own...

Well, we know the Japanese companies are trying to sell episodic stuff because Steam users won't pay full price for VNs, but they're stupid enough to get tricked into buying them as episodes/seasons/"DLC."

Keep the dolls inside a glass cabinet, and put spare dresses in drawers, and they should be ok without being washed.
So many dolls, so little money. I wonder how many cute dolls in Japan we're missing out on right now?
>I wonder how many cute dolls in Japan we're missing out on right now?
What do you mean?
Sorry, I forgot how to English for a second there.

What I meant was: I wonder how many cute custom dolls or neat outfits are sold in Japan but never get listed online for us overseas?
My dream girl was Mariko. She's just so perfect to me. By far my favorite doll, and no other DD compares. I sold 4 different dolls to buy Mariko, an 03, an 01, an 06, and an Obitsu and it was 100% worth it.

If we look forward, I really would like an MDD, probably Prism Illya unless the DDf is amazing, or a mature-faced girl like Alna.
