Yes, you can pick any order you want other than those two.

I recommend playing Maia's route before Alice's.

So the best way to enjoy the game would be to follow this order, for example:

Yayoi > Keiko > Saki > Maia > Alice (NORMAL) > Alice (TRUE)  ???

there are parts that could have better grammer but it lives up to Mangagamer standards

 

I see. I just felt like the wording in some scenes was a bit weird, so I wanted to check with somebody more fluent than me. ^_^

Plus, yeah, grammar mistakes are a bit too frequent.

Can someone please pm me a spoiler on what's up with Maia route? Reading vndb gave me a general idea of her connection to MC, however i'd like to know how her route ends, don't want to invest the time to get a bitter ending.

And done. Welp, didn't meet my expectations with how it's praised, but still pretty nice.

Most surprising was how much I liked Tohru considering how different he's from the MCs I usually like. Though "like" might be the wrong term, I just could really empathise with him.

What truly sealed the deal was what he said in Yayoi's route. Not really spoiler so the gist: "I tell lies to myself, and I accept these lies. That way I can put up with things." The guy is totally broken, but to live he piled lies upon lies to patch himself up, even if he ends up as a pathetic excuse of a man as a result, he just wants to have an "easy life". And after that the way you see his actions and thoughts is different, so I was really glad to have read Yayoi's route first.

Anyway, now time to read the FD. Will most likely skip all the "side stuff" and concentrate on the "main part" though.

Finished the common route and started Yayoi's route. Well, the first few chapters were pretty cool, with nice balance between comedy, sad parts and introducing the characters and their personalities, but in the chapters after that the balance mostly shifts towards over the top comedy, which is kind of funny, but pretty repetitive and still not good enough to move the story on itself. And it feels completely useless from the storytelling perspective, considering that the chapters before that do way better job at establishing the characters. Well, I hope that the story get serious again soon enough.

7/10 so far, I hope it gets better later on.

I have a question about Alice's route: 

Afaik her route has 2 endings - normal and true. Are they much different? I wonder if I should just go straight for the true and and ignore normal one, unless you can't do that.

Why would you even consider this

I am totally not interested in her as a character, that's why if the first one doesn't have an impact on the overall plot or no major information are revealed there that are missing from the second one then I consider checking it out later.

Finally done, man that was a long ride

Firstly about routes, Maia one is not really a route

more of an excuse for a h-scene with her and a bad ending and even more sad after you do true route since you know what her intentions were

Keiko's route was also shit, It was short and the pair didnt really click together imo. Yayoi's one was so-so, I was expecting more, i didnt like her dream phase

and seriously i just watched an anime where the girl left for the airport without telling and MC rushed to her, i fcking hated that part and the way she acted, ending wasnt that satisfying either 

Saki and Alice(true route) were the best and most fleshed out routes, Saki's one was as big as the true route if i am not mistaken and we learn a lot more on the story on her route and you also get hints of who Alice is in that route as well (more or less ignored in the other 2 routes). I wish they showed Saki's parents though or atleast showed the scene where MC met them also Takahara never showed up after they started a relationship either, missed opportunity, they gave freaking Keiko's dad a sprite and kind of a minor role too, why not others lol.

Btw I recommend reading like this Yayoi->Keiko->Saki->Maia->Alice, Saki's route has the most relevant content and a completely different chapter 5-6 so its worth saving it for later, you can even skip Keiko, nothing really happens, just a few scenes has her instead of Yayoi

Also some true route questions 

So essentially the whole VN was Yuuko's dream up until the part where they get past the chapter 8 dream phase and moves on yeah? After that Alice disappears for good and everyone forgets about her. Wish they expanded more on Yuuko, they introduced her for a measly 2 or so hours kind of like Hoshimemo and that white haired girl. I loved the epilogue scene of her and the MC, was lacking a kiss scene though 

:vinty:

Does she gets a proper route in the FD? Is there anything significant that happens or it just shows how they forms their relationship? I'd love to see a confession scene :Chocola: or just her getting healthy and properly interacting with everyone.

 

Overall good VN, I like Purple Software both VNs i read this past (Chrono Clock and this) were solid and they have good MCs who arent downright frustrating.

From what I see in a review, you didn't need to worry about the character too much because

Yuuko will be featured more in FD, and of course she'll do what you wish in regard of interacting with everyone and confess to Tohru, including getting dragged into the dream as well.

 

As for the FD apparently Mangagamer would like to wait and see in regard of the sale of this though before announced the FD, so we need to either wait or just read the FD in Japanese (Guess I'll just try to be satisfied with this alone). Let's just hope that Mangagamer will announce the FD in the future.

thats cool so it is like Hoshimemo

I'd love the FD but more than that i hope they keep up the partnership and go for Amatsumi next, that one also looks interesting and has good reviews. Also i rather they do it than SP

If you have read any of my earlier posts you should know what FD is about.

FD is only about Yuuko. If you want more spoilers:

They throw the true end of main game to trash and start with Yuuko coming to school and dreams while Alice still also exists in dream world. All the routes that happened in the main game were dreams and are now scattered as pieces and you visit the dreams one by one (excuse to put porn for other heroines) while trying to find balance between Alice and Yuuko.

Question for people that played the game. On VNDB, if you click on "spoil me",

Spoiler

it say that the main character goes through a gender change. Does he really? Or is it just one of those short gag/jokes scenes?

Aaand... I'm done. Well, that was definitely an experience. :michiru: Overall, it's a fun VN. I probably didn't enjoy it as much as some other people here, but it was still a pretty nice read.

A few points I liked and disliked about this VN:

+ The production values are great. The soundtrack has a few really good songs (though the total number of songs is on the lower side), and the visuals are also nice.

+ The whole story structure is kind of random, but it actually works pretty well to convey the atmosphere of a dream.

+ The characters are pretty solid.

- The SOL parts are kind of boring and repetitive.

- The drama is mostly underwhelming. I didn't feel particularly impressed with it at any part of the story.

- The overall mystery is pretty predictable if you read it carefully enough, and I felt that the true ending was pretty unimpressive.

I also strongly recommend using a walkthrough for this VN. The true route unlocks on the second playthrough, and it's very easy to accidentally take a choice leading towards it, though I strongly recommend reading all the other routes before that (including Alice's normal ending). Overall I suggest the following route order: Saki->Yayoi->Keiko->Maia->Alice normal->Alice true.

I'm giving it 7/10 for now, but I may reconsider it in the future (as I always do anyway).
