[Ivory] Wanko to Kurasou (ENGRISH)




Title: Wanko To Kurasou
Original Title: わんことくらそう
Developer and Publisher: Ivory
Release Date: 2006/04/14

Official: http://ivory.co.jp/product/game/wanko/wanko.html

Description

People were crazy about pets years ago. The particularly popular ones were cats and dogs that look human and have high intelligence. But the boom has died down with time, and now only people who really want them own them. Our main character is a college student who finds a stray anthropoid dog, collapsed in the rain. Unable to let her just die, he takes her up to his room and treats her. Even though he told her she can only stay until the rain ends, the dog stays in fear and worry.
The main character decides to look for her owner.
The life between a human and a dog starts...

Review

Story / Plot (9/10)

wanko-to-kurasou-effortless-screencaps-004
it's good... tear-jerking story...
this time, I don't want to spoil about this game... coz it's at superb level...
roughly, it's about a Lolicon-beastiality genious... living with his dog (DOG????) and some of his friends and (their dogs/cats too)

it's a slice of life story... with a VERY LOGICAL AND RATIONAL THOUGHTS of the main character... man... this is kind of man who I want to be... honest to the real world... not this illusionary world


Art / Graphics (8/10)

well, the Characters design and BG saved you Ivory... coz the graphics are sucks... too common...
look... it's too futsuu rite?
so be grateful that I don't insult this VN's art or anything coz you did a good job with the Chara design and that wonderful Background ... not to mention that the 8 score also come from the great CG's

Characters (8/10)

The characters are all unique and I don't see any reason to hate any of them... They're all lovable and didn't annoy me (unlike animes nowadays)...
coz I don't want to spoil things, just see their faces and a little traits

characters faces credited to http://springscalling.blogspot.com/2010/06/ivory-wanko-to-kurasou-visual-novel.html

Your future dog, Mikan


Strange friend, Oumi Risa
her route is a weird one... but rather... a happy one


Risa's pet dog, Silvianna (or Silvie for short)
my favourite dog... :mimisan:


Pet store manager, Mochizuki Nadeshiko
for some reason, I don't like her route...


Nadeshiko's pet dog, Kotarou


Cram school student, Mutsuki Kana


Kana's pet cat, Kuu


Mikan's previous owner and Risa's sister, Oumi Misa


Main character, Yusa Yuichi

Cram school student, Seika


Seika's pet dog, Kaie
shota lover, here's your dog :haha:


Sound (6/10)

wanko-to-kurasou-effortless-screencaps-005

for some reason, I don't like the seiyuu voice... don't know why, but it's not in synch with the chara and rather bad timing...
as for the BGM, it's rather good for an Eroge...

H-Scene (9/10)

wanko-to-kurasou-effortless-screencaps-006

the only reason I can't give perfect score is the voice... damn... why Koutarou doesn't sounds like a big dog girl??? damn it...
after all, I really liked the h-scene here... it's uniqueness are the best part of this Eroge :top:



Overall (8/10)

9+8+8+6+9 = 40 / 5 = 8 (Great)
This game is recommended for LOLICON and SHOTACON (it's just some few scene)
also some beastiality (or not... it's dog + cat in human form... they're dogs/cat... but in disguise.. haha)

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
as for now, I'm decided to make things my own way here... it's depend on the numbers of point you've mentioned, in this case, it's 5... so let's divide it by 5... hahaha...
1-5 :kecewa: = it's not included in a great site like CraneAnime
6:ngambek:= so-so... just play it when you have the time
6.5 :sepi:=hmm... mediocre... at least it have a good point
7 :keringat: = Good... maybe having two good points?
7.5 :siul: = more than good... have moar than 2 good points / good at one point
8 :malu2: = Great... strong in some points
8.5 :lalala:= Very great... recommended for VN player...
9 :nikmat:= Marvelous... it's recommended in many ways... not just one part...
9.5 :sayangku: = SUBARASHI!... almost perfect... just a little more... have a little flaw is needed though...
10 :terharu: = Perfect...
there's no such a perfect thing... but maybe it will...
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Final Words

an eroge player but haven't play this game? then you need to be consulted first... LOL!

free-of-spoiler Review is done... even though there are some little spoilers here and there, I think that's not the major issue...

I make this post, coz I want to share my experience playing a slice of life game which have good stories with a resolve of everyday problem (pet problem included...) :shock1:

  8. agreed ^^

    well... the only bad things about this game is it just have 2 route...

    Risa route / Nadeshiko route...

    of course I'll do Risa route first... and lazily finish nadeshiko route with Koutaro as the Motivator

  10. I didn't actually believed when my game started...I'm so used to the fact that all this " crack" thing never works for me, that I was shell shocked when everything worked!

  12. Wanko To Kurasou is a very good H-Game o-o, if it were a little longer I would've have to say it's almost as good as clannad...and if wanko were to turn into an anime....that would be very nice too...I agree with the 8/10 score just because it's kinda short and needs more routes...

  32. Sorry to ask, but, where can I find this so-called crack?
    You see, I had to use a torrent to get the .ISO because the files from mediafire here downloaded corrupted or something...
    Now that I got it and managed to install it, -English patch included- when I run the game, the only image displayed is pitch black, and the options above; no sound. When I change a single option the screen turns white.
    And that's about it. It just doesn't work. I guess I need a patch or crack or something. I was wondering if this has ever happened to someone else. Q__Q help?

    1. This is the same Anon as above. I read the opening thing that should be skipped. Right clicked, selected "skip".
      Dropdown menu disappears and nothing happens. I can't click for the next ~1.5 seconds. Tried again, nothing happened. Same black screen.
      Alt+tab simply switches between my open windows.

  37. To solve the black screen issue in Windows 7,

    For those of you that are getting stuck at the logo:
    1. Click “Settings” on the menu bar
    2. Navigate to the “Sound settings” tab on the “Settings” dialog.
    3. Press the “Voices” button in the group box labeled “Volume”
    4. Press the “Close” button and it should now continue without any problems

  40. Ha, that was quite surprising. I just finished the game and i gotta say, not too many things can make me cry but i got dangerously close at the mikan part. Generally i'm not really into the lolli thing but i guess this one is an exception. Gotta say i'd rank this one overall 8/10.
    The H scenes were actually alot better than i expected.
    As well as the story, kinda makes me wish i had a cute human dog thing.
    curse this boring 3D world....
    Anyways,
    The only thing i didnt like was the save box.... i dont really know why but it annoyed me. Oh well, Still a great VN i deff. recommend it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. initially, lol this game made me cry then i've learned some cripts to use in this real life!!lol the main char is an ideal explicit man!!the best patch is when Mikan was standing in front of her ex-master's grave. i really don't know how she felt when Yusa said the sore thing piercing through her heart and mine...!

    2. have you tried another game? if you have same problem on another game,maybe you should check or update your vga driver..

      Delete
  48. woooo just found this by chance...
    i agree with you that the h-scenes are superb, but I'd rate the charas and the Music higher....
    anyway I can't understand why you rated the story 9/10....the first hours of playtime suggested a wonderful story but I think most players will be greatly disappointed how flat and monotone the story becomes later on...also it made me friggin' RAGE that there were only 2 routes and general just few choices that actually changed something....I think it breaks a gamers heart to see a piece of art that starts out so well turning in a half-assed storyless something....but *sigh* that's how life is....whatever...it's great anyways, that you added the game^^

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yooo... it seems that 2 great routes didin't make you feel anything?
      I give 9/10 coz I like the protagonist's way of thinking, way of solving problems, and how he doesn't care about stuff like formality...

      one thing dude, if it's storyless, yandere translation won't translate it

      Delete
    2. that's not what i ment...i think the story is good, but how you play through the story later on sucks. I mean you still have choices but it doesn't really matter what you chose, that's the first thing...
      The other thing is basically that no matter what you do you get the same endings, they could've at least add some "side-endings" like whether you get a deeper relationship to other characters through the storyline...you know, a little variation, I appreciated that part on F/SN really much.

      The ending feels so determinated even though there are many choices...and well as my fav. chars are Mikan/Silvie I'm kinda disappointed that they don't have their own routes...(and I like the story in the first half better, when it's moar focused on Mikan)

      Btw. I didn't say I dislike the main char, I find him rather amusing and interesting...well I wouldn't rate the story all that bad, but I'd probably give it a 6 or 7 due to lacking variety in the ending and routes and 'cause the many many choices about NOTHING.
      If the choices would change something or if they'd at least gone the whole way and leave the choices out like Higurashi I wouldn't mind, it's just so....indecisive from the game developers.

      Dunno VNs where you basically can't really decide much bother me...it's just that...it was the same when I played Higurashi^^'
      (Sry I wrote such a long answer >_<)

      Delete
    3. the way you look for more ending sounds like you're playing a "game" for me...

      but that's just how Visual Novel are...

      have you read Majikoi? the choice there is simply just some joke by the developer... or even Osananajimi wa Daitoryou?


      Delete
    4. no i don't even know them^^'
      I just played ah few VNs but they all had choices (YnS, Soul Link, F/SN, School Days,...) and as I do like those VNs I thought/hoped all/most VNs would be like that...
      well also Sena from Haganai gave me a wrong impression on VNs as they talk alot about choices and a score system to get flag events, different endings and whatsoev...but maybe there's a huge difference between VNs, eroges and Galge VNs^^

      In fact I like the concept with choices, it's nice once in a while to get an actual visual NOVEL, but I really enjoy those game-like VNs more, 'cause they include less determinated events...whatever that's just a matter of personal opinion
      So as we cleared that misunderstanding I'd give the story a 8, not a 9 'cause I still think the quality slightly decreased on the 2nd half and that the side characters are not enough involved in the story for my taste.
      I agree with the total score being around 8, I may rate it even 8.5 but well...

      Delete
    5. this is just my guess but are you:
      > a gamer, also watch anime, but not that much
      > introduced to VN by someone
      > plays english ones

      well, I forgot about the story, so for it being 8/9 maybe you're right since it's not really leave some memories in my head... lol

      Delete
    6. wow you're close^^
      >I'm not really a gamer(<10 games for PC). I'd say I watch normal amounts of anime(about 5~10 episodes a week usually)
      >My first VN was YnS. I believe I searched for links after I watched the anime or sth like that.
      After that I got other VNs and now I took a liking to them...although I didn't really play many VNs yet(~10)
      >I'm only playing english VNs but that's cause I can't read a single kanji and engrish translation tools just ruin the mood for me.
      >I spend most of my time on Browsergames and Mangas, since I like Mangas more than Animes usually (always exceptions) and on /mot/s (CrunchyRoll)

      I'm no Otaku (yet) but I know about the classics on manga (well at least some of them. And I know from CR/luck/interwebz some rather unknown mangas which are really good (Elfen Lied, Chobits, Kanokon,...);
      I don't know so much about anime since I don't like the mainstream Naruto or Pokemon stuff, I'm focusing on:
      -MOE
      -classics (TMoHS, Toaru Majutsu...,Serial Experiments...,0 no Tsukaima, ToraDora, Higurashi...,and so on)
      -"Secret tips" and animes I found otherwise; well I choose the animes I watch by some criteria, which is why I had till today luck and didn't watch a single anime that's <mediocre.

      Btw: Are you an otaku? And what kind of anime do you like the most? I always wanted to know xD
      I like Moe, ecchi, vanilla, comedy, pettanko and Tsundere the most^^
      From the themes psycho, serious themes and moe/ecchi it is!

      Oh a last thing: Haiyore! Nyaruko-san is pretty awesome if you (also) like moe and comedy...it's dunno kinda refreshing xD
      And some japanese newspaper wrote "The DVD of the first season of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san was sold over 9000 times in the first weeks"
