What are Visual Novels?
Easy to get into and plenty of replay value

Enjoying visual novels, also known as Hentai ("Perverted" in Japanese), Bishoujo ("Pretty girl" in Japanese) games, or dating simulators, can be enjoyed by anybody from the most hardcore gamer to someone who's never played anything more than Solitaire.

All you need to do is to make Yes/No decisions and enjoy the touching storyline, sophisticated animation and soundtrack, and most importantly, your interaction with the pretty girls (and a few guys).

Depending on the choices that you made, the story will branch out, leading to different outcomes. Sometimes you'll see the same events from a different perspective, filling in gaps in the story, while at other times you'll unlock completely new paths. Depending on how quickly you read and how many routes you unlock, a visual novel can take anywhere from 8 to over 60 hours to read and play through in full.

In order to enhance the experience, many games have convenient functions such as auto mode, which allows you to sit back and take in the game at a set pace until reaching a decision point, quick and full save & load modes, backlog access, and a bonus menu where you can rewatch your favorite scene or listen to the soundtrack.

What is MangaGamer's Policy on Streaming Games and Uploading Video?
We do condone live-streaming our games at length so long as the video is not archived or uploaded elsewhere. However, we strongly ask that you refrain from streaming the final chapters of the game or its character routes in order to encourage fans to purchase the game themselves. Uploaded or archived video falls under the following policy.

Users are permitted to upload and share video of any or all content featured in the free demos available on our website, or the first 20% of a game if such a demo does not exist. Further game content may be uploaded so long as it limited to non-sequential clips which are no more than a few minutes long. These clips may be arranged together in longer videos for the purpose of creating a video review. We DO NOT condone uploading a play-through video or sequence of videos which cover our games from start to finish.

The above is MangaGamer's policy on streaming and uploading video. The individual policies of our Japanese partners take precedence where our partners choose to enforce them, so some videos may be subject to take down requests issued by our partners.

Q. Does MangaGamer Allow Monetization of Streams and Uploaded Video?
A. Yes. So long as your stream or video complies with our policies outlined above, and you include a link back to our website, then we allow monetization. For those seeking to monetize streams and videos, we highly recommend signing up for our Affiliate Program, as this will allow you to earn additional revenue from our site while complying with our link back requirement.
