I’ve actually started playing this and halfway finishing my first heroine route.
It’s from Tora no Ana so there’s that Camus acrylic figure bonus. As for the tapestry, I don’t think I’ve even opened it yet. Much less taking its photo. Maybe I’ll get around it when I enter her route (when).
The main story is pretty good although the romance is a bit lacking. There’s just some short bits here and there and then suddenly things happen.
I’m not exactly sure why I tried this but it ended up fun. Can only use three units in the trial.
Shelly is currently the most versatile one and Lugh is the most difficult to use.
The battle is fast paced so that’s nice. The problem is the keyboard control is kind of shit. I wonder if I should finally buy a controller. I’m not sure how much better it’ll be but I think it should work better with one. A controller would also be useful for some other games if I ever play some. Annoyingly, the controller I’m considering (Xbox Series Wireless) doesn’t seem to support wireless mode on Windows 8.1 and the compatible adapter is a bit rare.
Story seems fine so far with not much fluff and pretty much straight to business. The MC being voiced is rather interesting. I haven’t seen one since 9-nine. I wonder if he’s voiced in H-scenes as well just like 9-nine lol.
So, um, yeah, I’m getting this. From Tora no ana as originally planned.
The other eroge I bought this month. Also from Getchu. The box is very hollow and only contains a thin manual leaflet and the game disc.
Also the actually game CGs are only 1920×1080 (or x1440) despite the product page saying “supports 4k”. It does show 4k resolution option but then everything is upscaled, which is just like what every other games are. I don’t have original the game anyway and 1080p is good enough upgrade for me but some people did complain about it.
That said, they cropped the CG from 4:3 to fit 16:9. Extending the sides would’ve been better but I guess they’re not going to do that. Given the full price they demanded, they should’ve done that…
Oh and even the 1080p CGs seem rather upscaled. It’s just on par for a sprite milking release, I suppose =/
And here’s the last eroge I bought this month. I really have no idea when I’ll finally get around playing this. Maybe I should push it from my backlog queue a bit? Mainly due to the sheer number of goodies I have.
Now that’s one heck of eroge box cover. When first seeing it I thought the girls seem quite a lot nicer than I remember. Especially around the breasts area. And then I realized it’s their past. Or something.
The box is big and contains quite a few stuff:
That acrylic panel at top left sure looks rather nice. If only I have space to actually put it on…
The book is only 24 pages so the 7000 yen extra must be mostly went to that panel.
But anyway, yeah, dragons. Not this kind of dragon. Just your usual dragon girls. With horns and stuff. I’m still not sure if I’ll like it because I generally don’t like horns. But it’s Takano Yuki, so it could be okay. Also not all of them have horns all the time which is where I’m hopeful.
I finally finished reading all the routes and stuff. I started August last year so overall it took me almost a year to finish. I finished several other titles in between though. Strictly counting, I think it took me about a bit over 5 months total.
A bit too many balloons as usual but at least the main one is good. Shiguma (Sigma?) listed as subcharacter but she appears in Concept page background and her description seems to indicate she’s a key person. Maybe true route?
Interestingly the game is a bit cheaper in Getchu (both editions) and Sofmap (deluxe edition).
In my personal record time of only three days to finish reading this.
There’s barely any breaks, tension is high almost all the time, the suspense forced me to just keep reading until the end.
The h-scenes are pretty nice as well although I did disable the animation. I did enable MC’s voice this time (as I didn’t notice I have it disabled last time). There’s noticeable lack of certain type of play though which a bit sad.
It looks like a rather normal school club story thingy. Kind of like Hanasaki, maybe? Except the protag this time seems to be workaholic and likes money.
The uniform design this time around is rather lewd. Navels everywhere. And then there’s Nagiko, sleeveless with probably sports bra? And gloves for some reason. And those tall shoes on thighhighs.
Heroines line up seems like the usual one DFC heroine, one DFC sub-heroine, and the rest are relatively big. Arisue Tsukasa is doing main heroine again this time and Toranosuke doing two. I sure am wondering who’s doing Kikka. It almost looks like Hontani Kanae but I’m not sure. Also for the not-blood-related-little sister Ritsu.
As for the stores, I’ll probably get at least Sofmap, Trader, Suruga-Ya, and Amiami. Hmmm RIP 40k. And maybe more if those unannounced オリジナル特典企画中 are voice drama. That will kinda hurts. I sure wish that Amiami tapestry is also double suede. But it probably isn’t 😔 We’ll find out next month. Or on release day.
It’s planned for August release. I guess I have a few months to prepare the budget. And maybe finish Kinkoi before this one is released.
