< report >Hello!
I'm sorry if this has been already discussed in the past, but as I couldn't find anything of that sort I've decided to ask: Does this VN have any recommended play order/true route?

I've just finished Sumika's route and now I'm not certain which one should I play next... Is the sequel (Unlimited) a continuation of one of the routes or is it like Grisaia, where the sequel basically assumes the protagonist finished all heroines' routes (without any H-scenes, though)?
Or is it perhaps the other way around and in Unlimited it's assumed the protagonist didn't choose any route?

I'm really confused.Last modified on 2021-07-22 at 01:58

< report >Sumika's route is by far the most relevant to the whole saga. If you only plan to play one, play hers. The others have varying degrees of relevance. Meiya's is somewhat relevant, and Ayamine's has a character that is seen later in the saga. It's unnecessary to read them though. Tama's and Class Rep's have little to no relevance at all.

Unlimited ... well, you'll find out.Last modified on 2021-07-22 at 02:35

< report >I think I will play them all. I mean, I'd feel bad if I played just 20% of the game and then labeled it as "finished" when I haven't actually completed even a half of it. Although I've heard Meiya's route is really similar to Sumika's one, so I'm not so sure about that one.

Anyway, what you're saying is I've already finished the true (Sumika's) route, aren't you? And Unlimited is the continuation of it? Or is it more complicated than that?Last modified on 2021-07-22 at 02:55

< report >Oh, it's ... WAAAAAAAY more complicated than that. Don't worry about canon routes. If we're being technical, ALL of them are canon. I know that doesn't seem to make sense ... but it will. All of it will be explained in Alternative.

Anyway, Sumika's is the only one you NEED to read, but feel free to read the others if you want. Meiya's runs parallel to Sumika's as both follow the main plot path. The others branch off into side stories.

tl;dr Read Sumika's (and optionally others) in Extra, then move on to Unlimited. Do one or as many endings as you like, then move on to Muv-Luv Alternative. And strap in, because it's gonna be a hell of a ride.Last modified on 2021-07-22 at 05:12
