The entries say she is a middle schooler which is a no go for me, but reviews say that she is a high schooler. So how old is she? Or is she aged up a little for her route?

She's probably 14 (3rd year of middle school) at the beginning and 15 by the end. In the words of the seiyuu, Natsuno Koori, …これ、犯罪ですよね?
Old enough for you? I didn't think so, but the rest of the heroines are more interesting anyway. And older. . .

Ouch...Going to be a hard pass for me.

I want to read it, but seeing as Mitoko has the true route, I don't think I could bear it as I just see that as wrong. (Hell, Mahiru in Suki Suki was more than enough weird young heroine for me)

*Sigh* Guess I'll wait for whatever is next from Sol Press/ or whatever is next from NekoNyan.

Thanks for the answer though!

Well the age of consent in japan I believe is 13, though I think most have other laws that raise it in a way.

Well the age of consent in japan I believe is 13
Japanese law is a little more convoluted than that... simply put, while anyone below 13 years is automatically victim of statutory rape, even a 19 year old can be NG due to several laws which make this a mess, a quite precise overview one can find here: link
which is part of a comprehensive explanation found here: link
of course premise is that it was as consensual as it can be.

tl;dr if the legal guardian raises a fuss, you are trucked, doubly so if you are male. You are male and just 14 and your female sweethart and childhood friend is close to 13 (a school year difference) and seduces you? That's a felony for ya~. Over 45 year old woman with a little boy who is obviously confused (and mentally damaged forever)? Misdemeanor~

Well, it's best to just dig out as many cases as possible, blank out the genitals and see if one can guess what genital the judged possesses while having some circumstances given (ofc also the country). My humble guess is that one can easily guess 'em right~ Even without knowing the country.

Why am I mentioning this? Welp, just to do what the VN so obviously challenges (it's its friggin' title!). Might as well also append that it is common knowledge that female humans mature faster but alas it is always disregarded if not outright denied when deemed convenient. If at least schools would just have a little bit of consideration but nah, the most that is done is to hold back kindergarten boys... and yes, the difference in ability can be up to 10 years indeed (10-12 vs 15-20 for memory optimization).

14 is a standard age for procreation, as indicated by ovulation.

I remember seeing a post in a reddit topic who finished the Japanese version saying the MC is just under twice her age, given he is almost 30 that would make her 15-16. or Just about to turn 15.

But when you start the game there is the "everyone in H scenes is over the age of 18" MessageLast modified on 2019-05-17 at 09:42

@7 He is absolutely right from biological point of view and from rational one as well. It is normal to have sex at this age, even nowadays a lot of people (specially girls) start at this age, just they have sex with other minors. Age of consent exist because of social reasons, not biological ones. Through the history of humanity people were considered adults when they reached their pubescence, it changed just recently because nowadays we marry much later and need to get education before that.

@10 The only sensible reaction out of all this.
You'd think a VN site of all places to be at least tolerant of age gaps and age of consent here, especially when it comes to fictional drawings. Guess I was a little too optimistic.Last modified on 2019-05-19 at 04:57

#11 I don't understand what your complaint is about. Some people here are trying to work out age of consent, but nobody is really forcing their beliefs onto others regarding age. Even OP is practicing tolerance by politely and calmly accepting the matter even if he disagrees and moving on. Huge difference between mere tolerance and blind acceptance of everything thrown at you. You can still have an opinion on things you tolerate. OP has a distaste towards younger girls in VNs. Some people don't mind younger girls in VNs. I see nothing inherently problematic with either. We don't have to all like the same things.Last modified on 2019-05-19 at 11:37

@12 you have no idea how people can easily be triggered with a mere mention of loli.

#13 That's the thing though. Instead of the usual nonsense, OP gracefully accepted that it is what it is. I think he should be commended if anything. I can see #11's complaint fitting elsewhere but not here in particular.

I'd understand if it was one of those obsessed people calling us all pedophiles and demanding our heads on pikes, but it isn't.

@14 No, I can feel the condescension waves from OP's posts through my screen. People of his type often hide their utmost contempt of content such as this by feigning "politeness." It's classic passive-aggressiveness.

#3 :
I know people in real life.. who had se.. at the age of 15.. Barely 15 at that.
You dont know this but alot of people do alot of things even before they are of legal age to do it..i being their very close friend knew about it.. but the fact that they did those things at that age is still a secret... What i mean to say is.. these things happen alot out there.. its just not made public...also Bro-Sis incest also exist.. Just because you made out with your sibling doesn't mean you marry them.. its just for fun's sake tbh..as long as the world doesn't know.. Duh!!!

Mitoko despite being a 14-15 y.o. is actually much more mature than 99% of western wimminz out there. I find it insulting that some people treat her as a kid when she isn't.Last modified on 2019-05-23 at 17:57

A moral stance is by definition condescending, if not outright condemning. Though it's not clear here if the OP is taking a moral stance or just describing the trigger for an emotional reflex.Last modified on 2019-05-23 at 21:23
