    If I had to guess, a lot of VN protagonists get hit with the idiot stick so that the reader doesn't get left out. If the main character understood everything that was going on, they wouldn't need explanations and the reader would get left behind.
    They're kinda like the reader's avatar in the story, so their confusion is our confusion... In theory.

    That's why it's really frustrating when everyone but the protagonist knows what's going on. The reader clearly gets what's happening, so the protag shouldn't need to be an idiot about it. But they are.
    There's a fine line between making the protag understandably uninformed and impossibly stupid, and if you tip the balance you get an irritating read. Emi's route in KS really had this effect on me, as did the protag's attempts to uncover servant identities in Fate/Extra (though that's more RPG than VN) because I knew what was happening long before the main characters did.

    Of course, this isn't true of every Visual Novel protagonist, but it's worth thinking about. If anyone here wants to write a VN they should bear it in mind.

    So I guess I just finished(?) Saya no Uta    I got the ending where Kouji ends up insane and where the doctor kills Saya, is there another ending that takes longer than that one?

    There's three ending.

    You got the second ending. The first ending is a tad further away, at the choice of the "Who to call"

    The third ending is really early on, it's obvious what gives you a bad ending.

    I actually really liked the early ending    Because I felt so relieved for Fuminori

    I mean sure he was    stuck in a mental institute and charged with murder, but I figure it's better than that insane world he was in!

    Depends, I somewhat preferred the last ending.    Everybody's a monster with Fuminori, but nobody will ever know it ever happened

    I actually liked the second ending, the final fight, combined with the music, was really enjoyable.

    I dunno why they decided to make it look all dark and shit but at the same time try and get everybody's likeness as close as possible to the game. The game is all colorful but this just looks drab.

    The darkness is a bit weird, but I've been hearing really positive things about it. I'm looking forward to watching it for sure.

    ...Well, except for Lotta Hart. I can do without more of her in my life.
