ReviewScenario:7/10
Light hearted comedy in the common route, how deep the drama goes will depend on which route you end up on. Some of the routes are godlike but some of them... leaves more to be desired, without going into spoilers.
Romance: 10/10
Surprisingly, each different heroine has a different way to go about their romance so there is quite the good amount in this department, and you can really feel the character's emotions in each route, but that can be attributed to the protagonist's gimmick and the synergy it has with the storytelling...
Character Design: 9/10
I know some people hate Yuzusoft's art/character designs but personally this was my first Yuzusoft game and I really loved some of the character's designs so... beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and art is very subjective
Protagonist: 8/10
Personally I liked the protagonist's gimmick, as well as the character development, which actually goes well with the narrative and really brings the other characters to life, something which is hard to find in other games.
Soundtrack: 9/10
The soundtrack goes well with the light hearted tone of the story, and the emotional OST goes well with the climax(es) of the story as well, what's not to love? Yuzusoft's OST is, in my opinion, right behind those by Palette's BURTON
Game Quality: Very good for its time (2014), still holds well till now, as expected of Yuzusoft

Translation quality (eng):
Not as bad as SukiSuki's memelations, but there is some discrepancies with the original text due to liberalization. For an early TL by Nekonyan it's actually better than some of the later releases, and the crucial parts of the story isn't rewritten so I wouldn't mind it too much, since there is an option for JP text, which i HIGHLY recommend you turn on.

You should have seen the review of this from our dear late Conjueror.
Out of 5. Text: 2, Art: 4, Sound: 2, Chars: 2, Novelty: 1, Depth: 1, Fun: 2, Ero: 4
Final rating? 1
That's quite a bit off from the average 2.25.

< report >To be fair, the final score doesn't have to be an average of those given to various aspects. It can reflect the one aspect that matters most to the reviewer.

< report >Okay, so the individual scores are completely irrelevant when the final score doesn't reflect it.

< report >Yes. Unless the individually rated thing is more important to the reader of the review.

< report >Ever heard of the phrase "greater than the sum of its parts"?

This isn't rocket science.

< report >Oh, my bad, I forgot that it’s a bit different for moege. So scenario gets a 1.25 multiplier because you can’t expect anything actually good from it, romance gets a 1.3 multiplier because moege is literally nothing without it, and design gets a 1.25 multiplier because literally no one would play a moege with bad character design.

So now the scores are 8.75, 13, 11.25, and 9, which does in fact average out to an even 10! Can’t believe I, an engineer, would make the wrong assumptions like that. my b boo

< report >You're a very angry, unhappy little man, aren't you?

How sad.

P.S. Try actually looking up "greater than the sum of its parts". It'll keep you from looking like such an ass. :)Last modified on 2021-04-09 at 23:18
