The rules

If you create a tag for a visual novel (or an anime adaptation thereof), I will award you a 50-reputation bounty, provided that:

  • The question is posted during the month of May 2015.
  • The question receives a net score of at least +1 by June 7, 2015, and isn't closed or deleted. (We want good questions, not bad ones.)
  • You have posted at least one answer on the site with a score of at least 0. (Bounties can only be awarded to answers, not questions.)
  • You have less than 20,000 reputation at the time of this posting. (This excludes Krazer / Jon Lin. Users with 20,000 reputation will have all privileges after graduation, and don't really need any more rep.) This is a change from the April 2015 contest, where the cutoff was 15,000 reputation.

If you do not have enough reputation to create a tag (150 rep), that's fine - post the question anyway with , and somebody will come by and make a tag for you. I will give you (rather than the higher-rep user who physically creates the tag) credit for creating the tag.

In the interest of getting broader participation, I will award at most 4 bounties (so, 200 reputation) to any one user. This is a change from the April 2015 contest.

Eligible tags

Below, I list a number of popular visual novels (and anime adaptations thereof) that don't have tags yet. However, any visual novel that doesn't have a tag is eligible to win a bounty, as long as you leave a comment here mentioning it. The list below is mostly provided to suggest some things you might want to read/watch if you don't have any particular questions in mind.

  • How broad of a definition of visual novel are you using? There are at least few games on your list that wouldn't generally be considered visual novels in Japan.

  • @RossRidge You're right; Phoenix Wright certainly comes to mind as an example of that. Basically, I went down a list on AniDB and a list on VNDB and copied stuff over from those lists. I guess "anything listed on VNDB" is a good operational definition for "visual novel" here?

    Good as definition as any I guess.

    The English translations of Hatoful Kareshi keep the pun, so I think Hatoful Boyfriend might be better

  • akibastrip has VN sections and is labelled as a VN on Steam - I don't know if it is though, it's half beat-em-up anyway May 30, 2015 at 7:56
  • Am somewhat busy at the moment; will award bounties in a day or two.

Bounties on four questions from two users for May have been awarded.

Frosteeze: two tags. +100 rep.

Please leave a comment if you have submitted a question that fulfills the above mentioned criteria, but have not been awarded a bounty or have not been awarded the correct amount.

  • Aw, crud. Sorry, this completely slipped my mind. Thank you for stepping up and awarding these bounties!
