For some reason, the protagonist ended up spending his spring break with four girls in a remote area that had no wireless reception and didn’t even have a convenience store. There was only a school building that seems to be on the verge of closure, a large dormitory that looked like a hot spring hotel and a chimney that stretched up to the sky as far as the eyes could see. He thought that he would just spend some peaceful days here, but that’s when one of the girls Shizuka declared that they will make this place his harem, and started stripping in front of him in his bewilderment.
<report>Reviewer note: I read HaruKuru in Japanese back in 2017-2018 and this review is mostly copied from my review on r/visualnovels written in June 2018. I hope to reread it at some point and if I do, I'll update my review to reflect this. This review is spoiler-free.
There are two reasons I read visual novels. First, they give me the opportunity to learn and practice reading Japanese while having fun doing it. Second, VN structure and tropes allow stories to be told in way I've seen no other media do. Many of the VNs I love really don't have an obvious analogue outside of the VN world, even anime/manga/etc. As such, I'm strongly drawn to VNs that look and feel unique.
