Probably they wanted to leave things ambiguous to not annoy players, who aimed for different waifu ;)

 

 

I can understand that much I guess, though when the entire route is based around Arisa and making her dreams come true, I think the ambiguity was largely thrown out the window (Also, add that onto the other heroines basically giving up their love for Otoya in the hopes that Arisa would wake up). I may be wrong though, but it would have made much more sense from an eroge perspective to not have even included that route in the first place in my opinion. Only series like Da Capo make sense with a true end imo, not your standard moege.

(quoting in open, since I think this part is spoiler-safe)

There's some truth to this, but maybe it was their attempt to raise above the level of average moege ;) I think that true route was actually one of the best parts of the game, while more typical "eroge" bits annoyed me a bit now and then.

Eroge with romance route, with a non romantic ending. Astounding work. With this title and the other one its no wonder their company went tits up.

I can't even disagree with you and that's just sad. The rest of the story was great, but that BS at the end was, as you put it, just astounding.

I remember being super sold on Suki Suki initially. Yuuki was perfect, Rinka was overall good (route a little contrived, but the novelty of the idea behind it I liked) and Mahiru was at least great if you are into that sorta thing...

What knocked it out for me however, was that first, Ayame's route, which starts off nice and neat, utterly shits the bed in it's second half. It falls so flat on it's face, I could still plug pieces of asphalt out of it's face. Really bad stuff. Then secondly, Chiho happend. Dudegirl was a clusterfuck of bad writing, bad management and strangely enough bad translation. Chiho's route makes no sense and doesn't fit into the story of the common route and the four other heroines whatsoever, while all three side girls who had more development AND screentime than Chiho get nothing. From what I understand, Chiho's route only exists because one guy at the company was like "but I wanna do that though".

The reason I mention this, is because I'm now reading Haretaka and praying to whatever divine beings are out there, that this one doesn't have a "chiho" route. On the other hand, I am morbidly curious if there's another Ayame hidden in here.

About Chiho's route, I think Arunaru may not like her route very much so I understand that if he didn't put much effort on her route, moreso if the payment is the same whether he did put the effort or not (Only my guess though). I can ramble more, but Suki Suki might be better if the author just scrapped Chiho's route altogether and double his effort on Rinka's route, or perhaps the staffs reallocate the money to make Maya's route.

Anyway as for Haretaka here at least I can say that there'll be no Chiho like route, although I wouldn't promised that there'll be no same circumstance that cause Chiho to be like that though. As for Ayame like route I'll leave it to you to find out by yourself, but at least I can say that the writer have more organized when write Haretaka here compared to Suki Suki (At least that's what I get from scanning some of the scenes).
