I enjoyed the game and I recommend it if you like complex mysteries. But at some point the only thing I cared was learning the mechanics of the Sekimeiya and how to use them to explain and accomplish things. And getting out of there with Shiroya.

Saving Miiya? To be honest the only reason I wanted her to be saved is because Atsuki wanted to do so. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't care less about her. I know not all characters have to be likeable, but she's not unlikeable either as we don't get a chance to know more about her. "Miiya was Atsuki's and Shiroya's friend and they want to save her if they can". And the fact that she doesn't really seem to care about Shiroya as long as she can stay with Atsuki. That's pretty much all I know about her.

Did I miss anything important besides her shitty personality?

Don't get me wrong, I really like the game. Maybe I'm just overestimating her importance and she just exists to give the protagonists a reason to move forward.

< report > Yeah I took it as we weren't really meant to care about Miiya being saved in World C (tips even say that world is doomed basically), but more as World B Atsuki/Shiroya being able to overcome their trauma and move on with the knowledge they created a perfect world out there (well, they think so)

not really sure why they decided to make Miiya secretly be a psychopath who hates her friends, might have been some message? no clue what though

< report >With the sole exception of Shiroya, no characters get any real development, so that's probably why you don't fell like you really know her.

As for her personality... I took that as just another part of the puzzle, frankly. When Chapter 2 starts, we're led to believe we're playing as Shiroya, so seeing such dark thoughts in the head of a seemingly sweet girl is shocking. If the reader pays enough attention, he'll probably realize this is someone else before the reveal.

it also adds some interesting - and sadly not further developed - undertones to the main character's dynamics, since it's fascinating, in a rather heatbreaking way, to see Shiroya and Atsuki caring so much about such an awful person (seriously, just HOW manipulative is Miiya?). In the end, it helps us not dwell too much on the fact that World C is doomed: what matters is that Shiroya and Atsuki are able to move on.
