ReviewHi! First of all this is not really a "Full Review" more like an "Extended Mini Review"


I really like the art! The characters were also interesting! BGM overall decent nothing really stand out. The writing also decent, but for a game that focus on 'Creators' they not really show much technical stuff they only touching the surface (maybe they decided it'll become boring but IMO they need to show it a bit more).

But the slice of life, characters, interaction, plot and romance were pretty interesting. Especially on each heroine route they expand more on the sub characters like Yuina, Chinami, Mei, Erika and Himeko (although only Himeko that had a real sub-plot). Common route do pretty well on introducing the MC, Heroines, and other characters. Some foreshadowing also pretty nice (but not all all subtle...)

The main problem for me is the pacing sometimes 1 chapter cover a year and sometimes 1 chapter only cover 1-6 months. Furthermore, they tried to make the players believe that the main heroine route is the best, but IMO it's not really better than the other heroine routes.


Route Ranking IMO : Kiriha > Aisa > Yumemi > Elena
Heroine Ranking IMO : Kiriha > Elena > Aisa > Yumemi


To close it out, Sousaku had interesting characters, with appealing enough plot to make it enjoyable read, plus good artwork doesn't hurt. Had the potential to be a 9/10 but the main heroine route is a let down for me.

8/10 for me.



P.S: Why they decided not to put Shion as heroine?!! She seems interesting enough to become one.

< report >Can you explain how you can even say that this game has a good plot when everyone plays nice in romance, and all traumas and issues in each of the routes only require 1 pep talk to solve? Are you just really kind in your rating or you don't care about that along with the other issues in the game like all the h-scenes using the same template?

I won't comment on Aisa's route along with other problems I have with the game since that would require a lot more blocks of text unless you are interested in doing so.

I'm sad too that Shion isn't a heroine but I doubt there is any chance of it happening sadly.

< report >Hi!

What i mean by that is it had interesting premise and execute it well enough, certainly the execution was not really perfect.

The everyone play nice in romance . Whether they make it intentional or not the only character that not capable 'playing nice' is Elena. The others were had their own circumstances, Aisa had her sickness that make her timid about it , Kiriha had her high pride , and Yumemi somewhat comfortable in her imouto-spot? (atleast in common route) . For me it's convincing enough.

While all traumas and issues solved with 1 pep talk i kinda agree with you in this one, the decent one is Kiriha route and maybe somewhat Elena route. Yumemi route were so-so, and frankly Aisa route is weakest IMO. I gave her route higher ranking cause they seems gave more effort to build her up in earlier chapter (although not really successful).

As for the h-scenes, now you're mention it i also agree with this one. If i remember correctly the only scenes that they had variance is Yumemi (?) the other basically the same. But since i mostly skimp the h-scenes it just didn't matter a lot (for me atleast).

Yeah depending on the sales, they might made fandisc if it goes well. But other than that kinda slim chances.

Hey, if you had time to write it I love to read others opinions about it! Anyway thanks for replying!Last modified on 2021-11-30 at 17:44

< report >I actually quite agree with what you're saying, and honestly I felt the writing let it down. The scenario felt fine, if a bit vanilla, but vanilla isn't a bad thing. Not everything has to be dramatised and/or pushed to an extreme. A game can be about a typical, coming-of-age story and still be the most heartwarming thing ever. It just needed to be written properly.

Unfortunately, maybe it was the lack of time, or maybe the writer simply had too much of a burden writing all the routes, but past a certain point near the end of the common route, the writing quality took a nosedive. The drama in the routes were forced too. Do remember we've basically mostly solved the majority of the problems in the common route. There was basically only Kiriha's kuso otaku fanbase and Aisa's problems left to solve. Nothing else had to happen, it all felt too forced for a game that preached so much about writing realistically.

Also, can we talk about the fountain pen? What happened to that particular point...?

Thanks!
Oh really? They already had plans for append? Nice..

Yeah maybe they had a fixed release schedule, so the writer just decided to rushing it..

Could you remind me again what the fountain pen again? I vaguely remember read it but not clear enough in my head. xD

< report >The pacing was fine in the common route for me. Yeah chapter 2 in particular jumps through a lot of time but the common route overall flowed pretty nicely. The character routes however should definitely slow down a bit.
