A New Trend In Psp Visual Novel Endings??

Oremio Ayase's True Ending

I am not really sure if you have noticed the latest trend in direct from anime to visual novel endings. One thing I have noticed despite these games being all ages or rated "cero C" or "esrb T"  Is the type of endings they choose to throw in. Mind you i am not not personally morally outraged by this or offended. It takes a lot in this day/age to do that to my mental psyche due to the internet and the way life has treated in me general.

 Now for those who have chatted with me online I am a huge fan of Visual Novels. With titles such as Clannad, Umineko, Little Busters which all have psp ports in-case you are wondering. Only clannad has a pregnancy ending but we all know what happens with that route. Why are they pushing so hard to always have a pregnancy ending for ever PSP visual novel?? We all know the main demographic for these type of games but mind you there is also teens/young adults that play them as well.

This subject may or may not cause some stir some shit. Bandai-Namco always seems to release a visual novel for the psp as soon as the TV anime is done airing to sell more merchandise. Now the trend I have noticed is the type of endings that you get in newer vn's which results with main character getting love interest pregnant. Is this just a cry to say procreate already, or this some kind of fetish the developers have??

Now I am not sure if you are fan of these types of games or if this even shocking to you. I will admit the surprise ending for toradora still shocks me a bit. I will post a few screen caps below but tell me what do you think of this trend?? Does it morally offend you or is it something that intrigues you?? The latest game to do this was the visual novel for Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai. Hyper-links to buy the games are below, along with spoilers as well.

  1. it doesn't really offend me, though it does seem that they're trying to push on the thought that such actions has consequences. I'm also curious who else got pregnant in the Boku wa Tomodachi one.

  2. I guess the're also doing that because of the low natality rate in japan.

    1. That is what I am thinking as well. Even school days original vn had 4 pregnancy endings. With some if not all of the the major female cast depending on how you played. Still the psp games are meant for a teen-young audience so I am just surprised it's slipping by, maybe it's a cultural difference but that would never fly here in west.
