< report >Once again, I almost allowed myself to be fooled by Micchi's blog... this eroge is actually quite good, with a hilarious character dynamic. The plot is so-so, but for the most part, due to the character interactions and the emotional aspects of the game, it is a good eroge. If I have a complaint it is the somewhat rough quality to the characters outside of the CGs... well, it doesn't really detract from enjoying the game, so I wasn't really bothered by it. It does explore the issue of the morality of creating a sentient slave race... to an extent. I do think that it was taken a bit too lightly through much of the game, especially considering the beginnings. However, it succeeded in fulfilling the two requirements I make of a game story... making me laugh and making me cry spontaneously.

< report >Whether it is the same or not... this is actually a decent game. The fact is, with eroge, you can never tell if its any good, regardless of the author, until you've actually tried it. Reviews are generally only useful if the reviewer is nice enough to point out what type of person would like it and why they would be likely to like it, and relatively few eroge actually get reviews in English for the sake of people like us... hunting down the japanese ones is a pain in the butt and what makes those useless is that the Japanese don't have have precisely the same standards we do in matters of plot and writing style in particular, so those reviews are often useless. While I'll agree that it 'isn't the same' that doesn't mean it isn't worth playing...

< report >No, I meant that despite being a self proclaimed Atelier Kaguya fan I had no motivation trying this game (and I love pantyhoses too) after not liking any of the designs and art in general on a cursory glance. It was the exact opposite for me when Choco Chip made all the BY games though.
I miss the old AK artists like him and 1:04am :( .Last modified on 2011-05-27 at 15:20

< report >#3: Sorry for necroing this thread, but I'm genuinely curious, if you don't mind me asking after 10 years LOL

>the Japanese don't have have precisely the same standards we do in matters of plot and writing style in particular, so those reviews are often useless.

What do you mean by that exactly? As in, what do you think Japanese writing style and plot standards are, and what makes them useless? (compared to VNDB, or whatever else your golden review standard might be)

< report >Personally, Japanese people's reviews at erogamescape never stop being extremely useful for my process of selecting eroges. I have found quite a few hidden gems I never heard from anybody thanks to them.
Actually, you know a game is gonna be at least nice to read when multiple jap guys are seriously praising its writing IMHO
At this point, I tend to trust erogamescape's ratings and reviews more than vnbd's. I just may be the weird guy here though, ultimately depends on your own taste of course.
