< report >Regretfully, I've got unreasonable amount of time to do a detailed comparison between the remake vs the original (re-order). And since the result was rather surprising, I decided to post it here as a reference for future readers. Hope it helps you well.

Remake Summary
〇Redraw character's tachies and all event cgs (but not BGs)
〇Replace old system config/style into Giga's modern one
✖Remove 3 additonal short scenarios, and also arranged BGMs

Details
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tachies (non-event character CGs)
・The style evolved(?) from good-ole feminine style into modern moe, eroge style
・Meatiers heroines, both body and boobs(averagely 1.5x bigger than the original)
〇All heroines are definitely cuter (especially Yasuri&Ema)
〇More natural, and sensible heroine's outfits (the original's seems weird to me tbh)
✖Less impactful facial expressions. Tired face? Crying face? Angry face? All richful emotions are more or less diluted by default "cute" face

Event CGs
・Largely stay the same as the original one
✖Not so few CGs have been questionably redrawed.
※ Nekonyan = This title's main artist
→ [kiss scene cg] Nekonyan: How about just a face zoom with heroine's eyes still open so you don't know what actually happened
→ [ear licking cg] Nekonyan: Sorry I don't know how to draw a tongue anymore so let's cut it away
→ [Angry nakadashi cg] Nekonyan: Oh no all heroines must stay cute! Rea is not an exception! so here's a cute face that doesn't truly convey how angry she is at all.
→ [Rikako last H-scenes] Nekonyan: (big spoiler)So the bracelet is so significance to her huh? I will remove it from the CGs completely then HAHAHA
... I'm greatly appalled Nekonyan somehow managed to fuck up many expressive CGs so badly.

Scenario
・Essentially the same as the original one
✖no 3 extra scenarios(Parfait au Chocolat).

Other
〇Overall better system: Larger screen resolution, expanded config, system voice unlocked from the start, etc.
〇New OP/ED movie (same songs)
✖No switchable arranged BGMs, quite disappointing since the arranged BGMs are personally better than the original one
✖No more in-game event sheet to track your progress.

Verdict:
Honestly if you are moebuta who simply enjoying kawaii heroines in Full HD quality with comfortable system then grab the remake.
Otherwise, pick the original(re-order), for complete, authentic experience.Last modified on 2021-04-23 at 11:28

< report >@4 - Yeah, but speaking about Maruto's games - still I found console version of Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku o to be better experience than the +18 version, despite inferior graphics - it had better flow and I found many H-scenes too sudden and/or out of character to enjoy them. And then, final H-scene in Folklore Jam ruined the ending for me, so while I seem to like his writing, I'd rather stay away from sex scenes in his games whenever I can get away with it :P (I also bought console edition of White Album 2 because of that, and I think I'll do the same with Damekoi)Last modified on 2021-04-20 at 13:40

< report >This is just from taking glances at playthroughs, but it seems that Chocolat characters that show up in Parfait don't have sprites? (i don't know if they show up in the original, as i went with console version)

< report >@6 Two of Chocolat characters have a brief appearance in Rea route, and surprisingly have their sprites in both original&remake. Although most of them show up during 1st extra scenarios and I sense it's too much hassle for Nekonyan to redraw all of them, so they decide to cut all extra scenarios altogether from the remake edition.
