Hi there! Have you been seeing a beautiful anime girl with long, coral brown hair and emerald green eyes? Yes, I’m talking about one of the main characters in the visual novel game Doki Doki Literature Club! Big spoilers ahead. Stop reading if you haven’t played the game. In this episode we will be analyzing the role of the fourth wall in this specific game. We’re not Monika, but nor are we so different from her. We are real to you only when you listen to us.
