Senren Banka: Mako

Finished up Mako's route just now.

This was actually done over two separate days, one back in end-November, and another, now. The 6 hours part from the starting of the route till the confession felt like a blissful dream and went by in an instant. Reading it was so fun and enjoyable. I decided to resume the part after that after some time.

But it might be because I had not read the story for over 1 month, or it might just be due to my preferences, but I was not able to enjoy it as much in this sitting compared to last time. It again turned into a Ctrl-pressing fest for the ichaicha parts. The heroine route drama was quite good. But here again, there was the "What happens to her in other routes if the protagonist aka me is saving her so much in her route?" twinge of guilt that Clephas had already talked about when he wrote about his thoughts on the VN. I didn't really feel it as much during Yoshino's route, but it felt quite that way in this one. It's not a feeling I like, but I hope that in other routes also, her life changes just the way it did here. Same for the other heroines as well.

As for the complaints, I have mainly two: there were quite a few H-scenes in this route, more than Yoshino's. I had known and expected this to happen, but then again...

The other one is the well... rather personally dissatisfying epilogue. I mean, there could've been more closure, or something like what they do or where they go from that point, just like Yoshino's route, but I was disappointed.

Everything apart, the route is quite well written, and art quality is really high.

It was quite good, I'd say.

I plan on reading the remaining routes in the following order: Rena -> Roka / Koharu -> Murasame. Cos best girl the last. Always. (On that note, I tend to dislike VNs where I cannot do this.)

For what reason :notlikemiya:

Yuzusoft's bad habit is the inclusion of repetitive ichaicha (multiple dates where one would do, multiple h-scenes where one would do, etc).  I actually don't think Senren was that bad as Yuzusoft games go, at least when you compare it to the two thousand lines of h-scenes in some of their games, lol.

Two thousand lines of H-scenes... *runs for the hills*

That being said, as a general reply, the route isn't bad at all: it's quite well-written, and packs emotional impact. I'm just grumbling about the excess H-scenes in Mako's route and excess ichaicha in Yoshino's route. I guess I have a low tolerance for them...
