What if...

...Kazuki had a character route?

I wonder what the story would be? It's clear to me that she sees him as more than a brother as described in Angelic Howl so if she had a character route, I reckon things would get pretty damn interesting.

I suppose two reasons she wouldn't be viable to have one though would be-
1. She's supposed to be "dead".
2. They're siblings, so it wouldn't go down well. And besides, I imagine he'd get caught up in a love triangle with her and Amane.

But this game has thrown common sense and realism to the winds so many times it almost seems viable.

And I'm really looking forward to that, namely seeing Yuuji's reaction to finding out Kazuki is alive, and being able to interact with her after not seeing her for so long. Would he throw all manliness out of the window and do what Amane did in Angelic Howl Day 4? Or would he be suspended in shock?

P.S. I've played Amane's route and have started Sachi's. I intend to do the order Amane > Sachi > Makina > Yumiko > Michiru. And yes, I will be reading the sequels.

P.P.S. Here's hoping we get Kazuki system voice in the sequels.Last modified on 2019-06-09 at 23:03

That'd make entire Grisaia franchise 10x better [*] Let's be honest, Kazuki deserves all the love in the world. Be sure to come back here to share your thoughts after you're done with the sequels :3

Spoilers for series.
It could be argued that all of Rakuen is a character route for Kazuki. Point 1 is false (not a surprise for anyone who's played Meikyuu), point 2 doesn't happen- it goes over pretty well all things considered. The ending of the series is more of a gag than anything else, and anyone who sits there complaining about minutia about Amane's route needs to take one look at that before they keep complaining about how it's not realistic. Yuuji's reaction was also not all that impressive if memory serves.

Kazuki does have system voice if i recall and i even have her voicing my phone! Dont play phantom trigger though those things are hollow husks of the grisaia franchise.

Fun fact: kazuki and wanko from majikoi share a VA and thats all i can pay attention to when playing majikoi anymore.

#4 Wait really, never realized they shared a VA, I need to hear this for myself. Finally an excuse to go and re read majikoi and Grisaia

Sure, it's not like Amane's route or rather her flashback which is most of her route is choked full of Diabolus ex Machina~

While the series ending is just Michiru being Michiru, no, seriously, apart from the standard Deus ex machina a la "He survived that", a harem on a remote island is much more likely than getting lost in a Japanese jungle which has no food whatsoever, is basically a Bermuda triangle which wrecks compasses, rescue forces are utterly incompetent, not following mountain roads nor actually have eyes in their sockets, moving along the mountain is implausible and to top it off the real devil is Kazuki for she actually had a way out. Minutia~

It should be fairly obvious that forcing drama is much worse than forcing a resolution. While both very much take away from the drama, unless both actually happen in the same route/work, the prior makes the author a terrible person, on top of being incompetent.
Well, that's why I'd never give Grisaia a full score nor am interested in the new series. For me there was only the common route, Michiru's and the ending. In my mind the in between is made much less "dramatic"~

But this game has thrown common sense and realism to the winds so many times it almost seems viable.
Welcome to Fujisaki Ryuuta's writing, one who should stick to comedy can't help but at times very write terrible drama.
