Actually I think that the topic line says it all but to expand. I am slowly making my way through Aoishiro
(Currently doing Nami's route) and have managed to get through the Near Side Arcs and most of the way through Akiha's route in Tsukihime
but in both cases I have run into something of a problem.
While I've found both stories enjoyable getting through them is a tad... laborious shall we say. They have an amount of text to equal a door-stopper novel and I also have the problem of finding sitting at my computer hours on end doing very nothing (I prefer to use the auto-advance) to be a bit uncomfortable which kind of limits how big a chunk I can get through at one time.
This ran into the thought of how much I like my Kindle and iBook apps on my iPhone because while I have read books on my computer before (courtesy of Baen's C Ds
) being able to do so on my iPhone makes it a lot simpler because I can take it with me if I want to read on the train, or in bed or even just on a more comfortable chair.
This got me thinking. A smart phone screen is probably a bit too small but tablets like the iPad or Galaxy or some of the newer e-Readers like the Kindle Fire have large enough and high enough resolution screens that you could probably handle the background art no problem. Voiced versions my run into some problems space wise but personally I think the portability of the formats would counter that.
So to eventually cut to the end of a long chase. Personally I think V Ns
(and especially linear novels) would be much better experienced on something like a tablet or an e-Reader than on a PC. What do you think?
