Type of genre on a Vn ?~Topic VN's~

so, we covered if you guy's finish a story fully, or just partially on the novel's, but we have one important question, that has yet to be answered.

and that is

novel genre's that you like, and hate ~!

so, what are the novel genre's you cant stand, and would drop the novel and or not read it at all and skip through to the next novel ?

for me, lets see, probably otome/BL (boy love) or yaoi are no go for me, they just...feel more centered on female audience, rather than males, (or gay's, i dont judge), guro is..debatable, if its hard core guro on my best girl, then im opening the door on my way out, probably leaving a bag of "just no" notes there, if its soft gore, like part of story that wont kill off best girl, then i can probably read through it (i.e yandere-like story)and also "mecha", just doesn't get me as excited as other's, i dont hate mecha, i just..somewhat dont understand it ?!, but i can read mecha-genre'd novels, its just i somewhat prefer not to 90% of the time (which leads me to skipping on reading it), and also any form of "manipulation"/NTR-ish, if it contains r18 stuff, is "yeanobye", but to be fair, 90% of those tags just drive me off

as for genre's i like, i like almost all tag's, vanilla story especiallyisekai, comedy, sci-fi, they are hella fun for me, and just makes me read them, but it all depends on how likeable the character in the novel is, if i read through it fully or skim through~

comedy is somewhat an important aspect, as it wakes me up when reading novel's, and give me some joke ideas >.>

so to sum it up on TLDR; Hates--> BL, hardcore guro, anyform of manipulation/NTR

                                         debatable/sometimes okay--> Soft guro, mecha

                                         that's my taste buds bruh--> vanilla-story, isekai,comedy,sci-fi

 

but what about you ?!, what type of genre's do you skip through, and what genre's do you insta "i must read this", disregarding artstyle of the novel ?!

lets have a...dis...cu-cushion...b-below.. !!

Literally as long as it's not NTR I'm open to anything. I'm also not into otome or same-sex VNs.

If it's actually funny or has an interesting premise or story, that's a huge plus for me.

As far as genres go I can't say there is one I hate just like anime I am far more forging of VNs, and anime then I am of western style media.

In terms of my favorite genre I'm not afraid to admit that is is Echi I won't go to much into that as we are a all ages community, but thats my most favorite. Often these stories can be very well written with very good character development. Apart from this I tend to go for slice of life, fantasy/scfi stores. Though I am not to picky.

Does this mean that you prefer Eroge over Galge for the most part then?

..incidentally, i dont shy out of playing eroge's, but since this is an all-ages club, i tend to post, those that are with good story, or good art work

rather than VN's like "suck my d*ck or die", those dont even categorize as VN's anymore, just porn smh

for real though, who the hell would name their VN like that ?, (never read it, probably never will due to elements, noooo thank you)

decimo has good taste's tho', me agree and likey

same, would be lying if i said i dont read some of the VN's for the ero-scenes, since sometimes i do read it for the ero-scenes, which is messed up

but then there are gems, where you dont read the ero scenes, you read the novel for its great story (coughclannadcoughcoughKEY-VN'Scoughcough)

See For me its more like I am already primary reading any VN for the story sense, but if there are other benefits that happen to go along with a particular VN, or series then yay for me.

Thats pretty much how I look at it.

Personally, I prefer drama and horror. I don't really enjoy romance or mystery visual novels, even if I happen to run into a lot of the latter genre because many of them are considered to be kamige. Mystery stories are fine, but I find that a number of them tend to have a boring story and characters, like Ever17 and Root Double.

I also don't like happy endings that are wrapped up neatly with a bow on top. I prefer more realistic endings that address the kind of conflict the characters had to go through.

Above all else, I guess I prefer tragedies over happy stories. I find them literally more stimulating than peaceful and relaxing stories. Tragic stories literally trigger your senses and emotions far more than relaxing stories would. I like that emotional stimulation. I like it when a VN gets me to feel such intense feelings.
