ReviewDefinitely enjoyed this episode more compared to the previous ones since it does a good job at twisting things in a way you don't expect and making even boring parts look better. Haruka's power is a good example because it looks simple and dull at first but this episode reveals it to be actually more than that. Also, the game avoids one of the biggest problems I had with EP2 and doesn't waste much time reintroducing the previously known information. You get the story moving forward pretty quickly and most of SoL scenes are at the end this time (Kazuki Fumi's humor is still good so don't be afraid of them).

But at this point 9-nine- is still hard to recommend for me. EP3 was better but there is still a chance of someone getting bored during EP1 or EP2. And I don't even know why they decided to say that you can start the series with a whatever episode you want because this game is a direct continuation that will probably make no sense without prequels. You'll understand it but it'll lose a lot of impact because you can't notice changes in characters and the flow of the story.

Overall, EP3 is a good game even though I'm not sure what to expect next after that cliffhanger. Definitely didn't expect the series to go in that direction but... it makes sense, I guess.

< report >I get the feeling of surprise at the ending of Ep 3 and even agree with your opinions in the Ep 2 review for the most part but I'd recommend reading Ep 4 and bringing it all to a close before forming any permanent opinions on the series as a whole. Just trust me on this one.

< report >Went through episodes 1-3 and stalling a bit before Episode 4. I haven't been that impressed by what i saw either but that cliffhanger really gives the potential to make Episode 4 a completely different VN. Having a webcam function at the final battle like Bravely Default would make me flip the hell out.

< report >Definitely going to have to agree with you here #1. Playing the entire thing changes things and makes it much easier to form an opinion on the series as a whole.Last modified on 2021-07-29 at 16:59
