In the past 2 and a half weeks... I just read Muv-Luv (extra and unlimited), Alternative (finally, been meaning to for years)... and Grisaia no Kajitsu.
I read Grisaia first, and it was fairly good, pretty deserving of the hype it's getting. Had quite a few laugh-out-loud moments, a few heartstrings were tugged...and well...some disturbing moments... for me anyway..Only problem is, it's the first in a trilogy (so it's mostly character set-up stuff)...which the rest isn't translated yet so........
Then well, I decided to read Alternative...which means slugging through Extra and Unlimited (both of which kinda gave me Grisaia common-route vibes). But man, Alternative was another beast just on them production values alone. That's not even getting to the story. Definitely deserving of being one of the best translated visual novels available, and a must-read if you're into visual novels. I wouldn't recommend it as a first VN to read though, it's a very long series (and the prequels are fairly required, which bumps the total time to like...70-80+ hours depending on read speed...)
Some tears were shed in the past couple of weeks
