So… yeah, what do people here think of Kinoko Nasu's stuff?
I was a pretty big fan of Fate/Stay Night and Tsukihime back in the day, though I gradually lost interest and never really got into the other games. Started out with Tsukihime, but couldn't get into it. Then I gave F/SN a try after seeing the anime, and I absolutely loved it; played it all the way through, got 100% completion, and found myself eagerly awaiting Hollow Ataraxia.
…but then I found out that the Hollow Ataraxia translation project was taking forever (I was already waiting for this translation back when Mikuchan's /onoff/ was still a thing, and the project is *still* not done - even though it's technically been ongoing all that time), so I decided to move on and give Tsukihime another try.
That worked out pretty well. Tsukihime being part of the same setting, Arcueid's infodumps weren't quite as impenetrable to me as they would have been without finishing F/SN beforehand. And the story is IMO pretty good - there's two or three twists in there that managed to surprise me (which doesn't happen all that often), and the scene where you find Arcueid waiting at the entrance of the school remains one of my favourite VN scenes ever. The art is mediocre, the music gets old fast, and the sex scenes are awful - but the story was good enough to keep me hanging on for long enough to finish the main routes.
I would've finished the Far Side of the Moon routes, too, but then my HDD fried itself. I didn't want to play the side stories or Kagetsu Tohya before finishing Tsukihime proper, so I promised myself to reinstall it and play through the whole thing again. But then boredom and procrastination set in, and I was getting a bit tired of Nasu's stuff anyway. I have yet to replay Tsukihime in earnest.
