We normally stick to anime and manga here on Shallow Dives in Anime and have never really dovetailed into the realm of visual novels. That’s a shame because the visual novel is an important part of the anime medium, serving as a source for some of the most important and memorable anime series we’ve got. The visual novel itself has grown by leaps and bound since it’s early days and there seems to be something for everyone, whether it’s slice of life, fantasy, horror, science fiction and yes, even eroge.
So for the first time in Shallow Dives in Anime, we are going to take a dive into the world of visual novels. Will it be a classic like Fate/Stay Night? The unforgettable Doki Doki Literature Club? Or the much beloved Fruits of Grisaia? Those are all good ones I’m planning on doing in the future, but for now I want to take a look at the hit new eroge game that has been making waves in the dear internet. Join me after the cut as I dive into visual novel: LOVE³ -Love Cube-
