Working Title: Nameless YKTTW
: From YKTTW
: Removed: "as the expressions often take a second or two to perform before more text can be displayed, turning normal conversations into Maechen Periods" at the end of the Harvest Moon example. The characters don't do this during normal conversations; the closest examples to this complaint that I can think of (having played the game over the past couple of weeks with this complaint in mind) are the "handing over a gift" animations and the fact that these make the cut scenes a bit longer without really adding interesting substance. The former doesn't exactly seem to be an example of this trope, given that it applies to a single action that just tends to get repeated, and the latter seems like a general complaint about the trope.
