Totally Loved It

I totally enjoyed Nekopara Volume 1. So much so that I purchased the other two volumes as well. The visual novel has a very good set of tools that give you a lot of control over how it displays and works - bounciness, text display speed, text display time, etc., that add a lot to the story. The graphics and artwork are outstanding, and the story line is charming and entertaining. What makes this an outstanding work, though, are the voice actors. Each one brings her character to life through their energy and emotion. Even the "G" rated versions available on Steam, without the X-rated scenes, are very good. But you won't want to miss those, so either purchase the full X-rated versions on DL Site, or the Steam add-on packs to get the full versions. Of course, if you purchase on Steam you get the trading cards, if you're into that sort of thing.

Pickup!An amazing game

Well, what else is there to be said that hasn't been covered in the other glowing reviews? Nekopara is an excellent, professionally made visual novel. Everything about the game screams pure quality; the character art and designs are stellar, the music and voice acting are outstanding, and the English translation is one of the best I've ever seen, being really accurate and well written. The E-mote system is a great addition, and the adorable animations will make you fall in love with the characters even more. Very highly recommended!

Pickup!Cat Paradies

NEKOPARA vol.1 is the first installment of the Visual Novel turned Nekopara Franchise. It tells a heartwarming story about Catgirls and their Master.
If you are interested in a light, heartwarming story without much drama and surprises, then Nekopara is the right choice.

The story-telling is as adorable as the characterdesign and with the E-mote System the cuteness is taken to a whole new level! Now they are moving according to their emotions.

I really enjoyed the story because of these features and because I like light stories in general.
So if you think my above stated points are appealing to you: PICK IT UP!
The Catgirls are waiting, nyaa~

Pickup!No Regrets

A man will do anything to get to his porn. I patiently sat through, and read, somewhere around three hours worth of character building to get to the first H-scene, at least according to the counter on Steam.

And you know what? It's damn well worth it. I found myself actually getting to know these characters and starting to care about them. It's something I can say I've never experienced before when the biggest draw was catgirl H-scenes.

The art is very well done, the voice acting is top notch, and the H-scenes are well animated given the VN style.

10/10, would fu*k catgirls again.

Cute and sexy fun!

Aug/07/2016   By theValiance

Nekopara Vol 1 is a relatively short game (if I remember correctly it was just a bit over 2 to 3 hours long) featuring a cast of cute cat girls!

The game is fully voiced, aside from the protagonist, and is also fully animated. It is set up in the traditional VN fashion but also has an 'E-mote' system which makes the characters have animations, in both CG's and regular dialogue (and adjustable breast physics too)

The music is pretty good, and the story is interesting and cute. You see the relationship of the protag develop with his catgirls, as well as some of their day to day lives.

I was slightly annoyed at the frequency some sound effects played during the sex scenes (one particular wet sound effect) but other than that I can find no fault with the game.

I'd recommend getting this, for the story and the sexy animations, and if you enjoy it be sure to check out the second game as well.

Pickup!This is the future

This particular visual novel stands out from the rest. On top of it's sexy and adorable artwork, it is animated! Fluidly and charmingly animated!
I'm talking about the character sprites as well as the cg/h scenes. And if the breast bounce animation isn't to your liking, you can adjust it in the options menu.
The story is just as adorable as well, with the "payoff" being incredibly satisfying and worth it.
It's not often a visual novel, especially in this price range, goes the extra mile and provides great value.
I'm very much looking forward to the next volume!

Pickup!Too Damn Adorable

Keywords the reviewer selected :

For a digital novel game, the makers put in a whole lot of effort animating each scene. They are simply more alive than your average game. The characters are just too darn adorable.

Emotionally, this is definitely one of the more thoughtful takes compared to anything else that may contain catgirls.

As for the hentai scenes, they are well-done, but the rest of the story and everything leading up to it got my vote for the lines. The infamous "nyah nyah" doesn't show up too often, if at all.

Amazing

Jul/23/2015   By Ryu

0 user(s) found this review helpful.

Absolutely amazing game! The game itself isn't very long but frankly, it nails that emotional connection so well. This was actually the first game I decided to pay for instead of just ripping it from some other place for free. It was purely to show my support for it and now I can say it was well deserved.

The art is excellent, and the story is so heartwarming, I was literally sitting there with a goofy smile on my face the whole way through. I'm definitely not the smiling type but this story did it for me.

The OST also is worth mentioning that it really gets you right into the flow. Background music that fits so well and makes you feel so "in-tuned" with the game is pretty rare but this game did it flawlessly. Even when the H-scenes came up, the music really made it feel like a love scene rather than just a sex scene. Sex scenes can be thrown in any game, but to communicate that feeling of love is so much more complex.

What this game is, is a completely vanilla, heartwarming, love-filled (Yea those phrases practically mean the same thing I know) adorable, super cute story. If it's vanilla you are looking for, then you have hit the jackpot by stumbling here.

It revolves around a male protagonist that moves out on his own to start a bakery and two catgirls tag along with him (unknown to him) and thus unfolds their love story. If you like cute, adorable "cat-girls" or nekos in this case, this is for you.

Art: 10/10
Characters: 10/10
OST: 11/10
Story: 9/10

I beam down story for one point simply because, I want more! However, this is volume one so there should be (at least I hope) a volume two some day.

Great

I didn't know what to expect from this game, but it certainly exceeded my expectations. The changeable boob bounce physics is a bit much, but I am glad that they added it to the game. It doesn't add much, but it can be pretty hypnotic. The animations took a little getting used to since they were higher quality than I am used to, but they are great. The voice acting is definitely high quality, and I would certainly play through it again.
