ReviewThis is one of those VNs that blurs the line between sequel and fandisc, but such discussions don't really matter because this is outstanding as a sequel and top-tier as a fandisc. Not only this was much easier to follow than IroSeka due to the slower pacing towards the end of each after-story, but they are so well done they end up being great epilogues at worst and proper second halves of the routes at best, and all of that leads into the true route which is the best one Favorite ever did IMO. Overall, if you enjoyed IroSeka there is no reason not to try this one, specially in the portable console version where the games come together. Borderline great VN.

Ranking down girls: Shinku>Mio>Ai>Tsukasa>Kana>Kyou.

Ranking down routes/after-stories: Shinku/True (absolute climax of the series)>Kyou (actually gives closure to her route)>Kana (pretty heartwarming specially in the context of True Route reveals)>Mio (excellent as an epilogue)>Ai (pretty short but really good for what is was)>Tsukasa (alright but at least the plot was somewhat interesting in comparison to the original route).

< report >I haven't played that many Favorite VNs, but her winning that popularity poll a few years ago was 100% justified with how much she goes through for her protagonist.

< report >Hikari was such a good sequel for iroseka, only problem I had with it was felt shinku true dragged on a bit towards the end. Also getting closure from places I didn't even expect like tooru from mio's route was great.
