Nekopara Vol.3: Oh what’s new Pussycat?

The Nekopara series has always been one that leaves me deep and compelling questions about the world and its structure. There is just something about the world that writer Sayori has created that does that. The visual novels have always been a fun read to, full of cat girls doing cute things, cat girls doing funny things, and cat girls doing each other. We’ve looked at the first two volumes of this series, which I have enjoyed pretty well. How will the third entry hold up? After the cut let’s take a dive into Nekopara Vol. 3 and find out!

LOVEĀ³ -Love Cube-: The Erotic, and Normal Aspirations of Young Adulthood

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: LOVEĀ³ -Love Cube-
