Even comparing a physical book to an ebook version! Ultimately, there is quite a lot of fuzziness purely on how you consume the media, but I think it’s ok for the most part as you have quite a bit of fuzziness just in people’s perceptions. As long as it’s not too significant and the comparisons you’re doing generally make sense… which is where I definitely draw the line between comparing audio only & text.
In the end, it is all valuable data to collect. Even if we find that VN to novel comparisons are really noisy, collecting those comparisons and figuring that out would still be very valuable.
Right! Although, I will admit that my hope is to move into anime in the beginning of the new year… and I certainly won’t have ‘finished’ books by then. I’m sure we’ll be discussing it a bit around then and I’ll see what people think.
