< report >Holy shit Hinata's voice is so terrible, I keep getting the urge to mute her throughout the game... Could of just gotten Momoi Ichigo to do her voice as she did Natsuki from Hoshiori, and their personalities are quite similar.

Apparently this is Hinata's seiyuu's first role ever, and god I hope she never voice any character ever again.

Aside from the uh terrible voice of Hinata, which I can't even just not play her route because I'm a completionist, no other complaints about this beautiful game.

< report >The sample voices of her on the game's homepage do not sound that terrible, though.

Does the actual content differ then?

< report >I haven't heard the sample voice, but it's usually just one or two lines, which won't make a big impression on you. Playing the game you have to constantly hear her voice, and then you will realize how terrible and annoying it is.

< report >I don't feel like there's anything wrong with her voice. Also, you should really read her route. It was written by Kai who did Kyou's route in Hatsukoi 1/1 and Natsuki in Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai. His writing is really good, especially when contrasted with other routes in this game, where other heroines feel like they have absolutely no character whatsoever.Last modified on 2016-08-29 at 16:44

< report >Absolutely not. Her voice may irk you for about 30 minutes in the beginning, but as you go on, you realise how good of a job the Seiyuu really did. I think it suits her personality perfectly and the versatility is there. Emotional scenes, shy scenes, flashback scenes, upbeat scenes and even H scenes, everything is done very well. I actually came to love her voice as the game went on. Her route really does remind me of Natsuki's from HoshiOri and I love that type of character relationship. I just wish this type of romance was more abundant. I find no reason to complain about her voice past the initial stages when she screams a lot. Thereafter, it's a fine performance.

< report >So, in the end, this thread boils down to nothing more than a personal preference and a need to express it with some quasi arguments provided as a "proof"...

Why is it that I am not surprised in the least. :D

< report >It really isn't an issue. Given how good the route actually is, it's not even worth arguing over. I really have come to appreciate the performance more and more as I play on.Last modified on 2016-09-06 at 16:46

< report >Hinata's voice is only bad at only an hour of early of the VN when MC met for the first time. Maybe because high pitched voice that kind of unnatural... but it's only about 1% of the VN time maybe less...Last modified on 2016-09-13 at 12:57

< report >The japanese drinking culture, their women and great games like these are why I studied japanese.
Anyway, if I had to complain about voices I'd have made it about Mizuha's voice actress having a tendency to sound like she's crying in h-scenes. Barely worth mentioning.

< report >I too, really liked Hinata's voice. For a genki girl like her, her seiyuu did a very good job. It kinda reminded me of Kirino from OreImo, with her spunky, high-speed speech with a hint of mischievousness.

Personally I think Yuzuki, the step-sister, had the worst voice in the game, including even the minor roles like Momo-chan and MC's mom. There was just something grating to my ears with her high-pitched speech patterns.
