ReviewAs many other reviews on here have said, this is clearly meant to be the first part of the series, and with the obvious hints of who the final villains are going to be, this has the material to be at least a trilogy. I'd say the cliffhanger in this VN is about Ley Line 1/Great Ace Attorney 1 level, and not as bad as the cliffhangers from the Blazblue series or that one from Labyrinth of Grisaia.

About the overall package i'd say the best thing about it is the witty dialogue, because the banter between the protagonist and the heroines is awesome. The world-building is interesting, but it's hard for me to get into it when all the races are so humanoid (it remains to be seen how important that is to the narrative of the series). The story is more episodic than anything else, but is alright. I can see how it could disappoint all the JOPs back when it was first released, though.

Overall, i'd recommend this if you want a fun futuristic fantasy VN as long as you can put up with the open ending. (untranslated) Bullet Butlers is way recommended over this if you want a take on a modern world with different races clashing, though. Decent, almost good VN.

Ranking down girls: Komachi>Chiffon>Mell>Claris.

Ranking down routes: Mell (feels like the first half of a really good route)>Claris (same as Mell but with a lamer ending)>Komachi (lame climax slightly ruins it)>Chiffon (cute but barely anything happens).

< report >Hey, at least their interactions actually feel like playful banter rather than the constant jabs at each other like with Claris.

playful banter

it's been a while but I don't remember this at all. it's more like she's bitching that there's no gold to dig around whenever she's with Ruka. her hypergamy skyrockets when she first meets Strichoss. and of course after her first h-scene she bitches that she's stuck to a penniless RukaLast modified on 2021-04-12 at 02:57
