    For Ayame’s one u need to get Yuuki’s grandpa to teach volleyball and also have her affection up to atleast ‘like’, much easier to get than Yuuki’s one

    That's some 4D chess level pathfinding, good god.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one with a beef for the dating sim elements... skipping text and trying different choices seems to be the only effective way to explore the routes.

    I would find it a lot less appalling if I could open the menu in the choice screen. Being unable to load from there is the worst. 


  2. On a technical level, this title is pretty impressive and I enjoy the (not retro, what should I call it? Classic?) art style. Unfortunately, the script simply isn't good.

    Focusing on two girls at the time is not the worst ideafor a story, because this way the information about them and their personalities is more focused and the characters are by default stronger than if they were split by four or five. But on the flipside, there is a frequency problem. The guy who gets to pick between the 2nd set of girls is an unbelievably irritating side-character you meet while reading through as the first character. That not only disconnects you as a reader, since your vehicle into the story didn't just change color. On top of said vessel changing from a car into a boat, the guy you are suddenly supposed to insert yourself into the guy you've spent the last 20, 30ish hours hating because he's just a twat. 

    This main character disconnect also leads to other issues with the split. Kurumi should in my opinion clearly be a romance option for Tooru, not Naoki. The way these two bond over the common route is way more intimate that the dumb expository backstory you get from the game. I wholly believe that the entire script would benefit from dropping Akira's route entirely, not making Naoki the second protagonist and moving Kurumi's route to Tooru. 

    For more traditional issues with the script, there's only two routes for the main characters and only one of them has a proper ending until the after story. Going 50/50 on satisfaction isn't a good ratio.

     aforementioned Maitetsu (If you can see past the loli and censorship mess)

    It kind of IS a big deal, when Sekai's one, out-of-the-box, big release doesn't even release properly and the dumb fuck responsible for the company's PR tweets "What did you expect, I hated this project from the start lul".

    At least Koikuma happened. 


  4. I actually really like that beating the route and unlocking the love flower gives you an "Extended Cut" of that heroine's route, because you see all the common route events as a couple. 

    Rinka's route floored me, will genuinely remember that one for a while. After I picked "Don't", I didn't expect to get another 5 hours of route when I went back and picked the other choice. 

    Yuuki was almost an airtight read, I actually like both endings in their own way here; the confess ending has better bookends, but the normal ending feels more earned if that makes sense.

    How to get Rinka and Chiho:

      Reveal hidden contents

    Seeing Chiho requires completing at least one route. When you do, she'll show up on a second playthrough.
    Rinka requires completing a route, and then getting to the end of the game without confessing to anyone.

     

    Thank you. What a weird choice to lock them both and still spoil what I assume are half their CGs in the intro. 


  6. Joined the fight. Thoughts after 6 hours:

    - I refuse to accept that 2 of the 5 heroines really exist

    - this choice system is the second most annoying thing I've ever seen. Whoever thought releasing this without a walkthrough was okay should be held responsible in court. 

    - How and/or why did they waste this much time and that many resources for Maya if it doesn't lead to anything?


  7. After a 3 year long break between routes (oof), I finished Edelweiss. Somebody once told me the teacher route is the best route. I disagree (Natsume was the best) but Mei takes second place. By the way, the H-scene balance in Edelweiss is kind of hilarious: Haruka and Natsume only have 1 scene each, Mizuki and Mei get to have two and Ran has four. I smell writer bias.
