So we have………. an eroge that focuses on mech girls. Whee.
No technically cause I got no idea what to play out of the releases so I randomly picked Candysoft’s stuff.
Some Rubbish Infomation
Company = CandySoft
Scenario = 鬼むぅ (No idea who he is at all)
Artist = 真広雄海 (Tsuyokiss Nigakki, not first one btw)
Genre = Mech fighing school life exagerrated romance
What’s so special = Mech girls, decent amount of laughs, mech girls, mech girls, mech girls and…. mech girls
Hmm… I guess I had fun playing this, though I was a little dubious with this at first. I mean come on, it’s mech girls. You can usually connect that theme to no story. >_>;
Setting is this awesome island. Yes, ISLAND.
So….. you start off as Azuma Kotarou, a pretty average guy. Living with his aunt’s family since his father is always overseas. Hanging out with his friends, talking rubbish and worrying about exams. That sort of normal life.
One day, he goes to school as usual together with his 馬鹿 osananajimi. Due to not doing her work, she rushed off to school to copy, leaving him behind. Normally that’s nothing. But today is different.
He bumps into there two really weird people. What comes next is really terminator-ish.
[H, how do you know my name]
[Kai, I have confirmed that he is Azuma Kotarou]
[It’s been a long time since we’ve came outside, do you want to play with him a bit?]
[No, it’s too bright here. I don’t like doing stuff like that anyway]
With that, she attacks Kotarou.
He dodges the first blow, but the rest hit spot on.
While he’s on the ground, she prepares for the finishing blow. He closes his eyes and gives up all hope.
But all hope is not lost. There was a bright flash of light, and down comes:
ZOMG, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN NOW?!
Ok, here’s the deal. This eroge isn’t bad, but it isn’t epic. You get 5 routes, in which two are pretty decent while the other three ends with you saying…. meh. The two routes are Yuno’s and Delta + Kai routes.
I mean, they made Yuno the whole focus of the story (Extremely evident from the huge cg gap she has from the rest).
Writing was decent, but at some parts it just fails miserably and there were a LOT of loopholes/questionable points throughout the entire eroge. For example the whole dying thing. Also, they skipped lots of parts where it could have been a lot better if they actually wrote something about it. Important events were somehow unimportant over time from their way of writing.
I find it hard to relate to Kotarou since it’s pretty messy and the story was pretty much flying all over the place near the end. They did the climaxes correctly though, you don’t feel too bored while it’s ending.
There are bad ends too. And in some Kotarou dies really spectacularly. Almost to the extent where it could be a gore eroge if they drew the CG of his death out.
I’ll conclude this section by saying that they should have spread the damned story points more evenly throughout the story and try not to be so…….. messy with the writing.
And fffff, someone should make a super 主人公 sometime soon. I’m getting bored with average males.
主人公. Very normal. His parents are some robot engineer thingy and are overseas so he lives together with his aunt and cousins. Overly kind but lazy. Nothing really that you would call a special talent. He’s unusually blunt and trouble finds him more than the other way round.
Bioroid. In other words, robot. She’s the best out there and has no problems at all fighting, jumping 4 floors down and stuff like that. Her only objective is to protect Kotarou. She wears her mechamimi most of the time lol. She acts pretty robotic at first, but becomes more human like as the story progresses. Doesn’t like losing. She has a system called TORAS that allows her to see what people are doing and feeling.
Kotarou’s not so average osananajimi. She’s violent, extremely active and kicks Kotarou when she gets irritated or….. just kicks him. She’s more of a body than mind person, moves instead of thinking. You can even say she’s pretty unintelligent. Helps out in the school clubs and is actually pretty popular in school.
Kokona’s elder sister. She’s pretty, clever, has big boobs worries about all of them. Literally perfect. Too perfect. My favourite character. She likes teasing Kotarou a lot. Or should I say she likes teasing in general. She’s also very dangerous if angered. Damned she’s cute *_*;
Also a robot. She’s awesome when she pouts. Anyway, she’s the brains of the two and has the ability to control other machines (Terminator anyone?). Unfortunately, she’s incapable of actual physical combat where even Kotarou could win her. She doesn’t hate Kotarou, but has her mission. Her dere dere mode is \o/
The other one of the two. Kai, however, is totally physical based and doesn’t really plan much. Pretty powerful too. She’s very pure in heart though, simple I should say. For some reason her jugs and height is totally different from Delta though. She’s actually the little sister of the two.
Seriously, I have no idea what they were thinking when they made this totally underage character as a heroine. She’s obviously not 18 even if the voices are. Anyway, she’s the youngest in the family. A splitting image of her mother. A girl who likes doing things, smiles a lot and loves her oniichan. And yes she’s a heroine. Damned you CandySoft. Damned you.
I have to say damned you CandySoft again. Why? CAUSE THEY REUSED THE SAME GODDAMNED ENGINE FOR THIS EROGE. EVEN THE SOUNDS ARE THE SAME >_>
Of course design wise they changed, but the sounds oh god. It’s exactly the same as in Tsuyokiss.
So here we have the title screen. Nothing too special except for a serious overuse of circles. I have always liked the fact that CandySoft has a continue from where you have left off button. I never remember which one of the saves I use very well.
If memory serves me well enough, this is the exact same options that are in Tsuyokiss. Anyway, there are quite a decent lot of options in here to change most of the stuff in the eroge. For some reason, even though I chose no effect while skipping, the effects still came out. >_>;
here we have the interface. Date time location on the top left. Text box is fine and all. I found the quick menu to be really big. Wish they could have made it less outstanding since it blocks stuff sometimes. The helmet button on the right is something I would explain later. Btw if you read something already, the text changes color.
Right clicking oncee would make the window go away and the second would bring up this menu. Tsuyokiss anyone? Anyway, it’s the usual options.
The save menu. Nothing too special. If you’re in a character’s route, it would show her face in the circle thingy. The bottom shows your play time. Btw mine was around 20 hours.
This, is the TORAS system. Here you can see most of the attributes a character has as well as how much she likes you/or you her (can’t remember). Anyway, the stats change during the story sometimes because of certain events. Yuno’s 3 sizes is a killer.
Day transition page. I have no idea why it’s so gorey. It’s scary. I bet this is Kokona’s diary or something >_>
This is the escape screen. You press F5 and it changes to this mini game thing. Apparently it’s great when someone comes into your room suddenly. Game was retarded though since there wasn’t a computer player.
CG and Animation
Unfortunately, this was the absolute best CG in the eroge. None of the others are quite near this level of quality. Quite sad actually. Anyway, CG is pretty well done, shading, expressions and proportions. The BGs weren’t bad too. There were enough items for it not to be too empty.
Animation wise, there wasn’t anything too special, you get the usual overexposure, screen vibrations and character entering and exiting the scenes.
Music was very typical style. Nothing too special here. OP song was pretty much typical too IMO. Sigh, CandySoft is dying >_>;
H scenes were aplenty (For Yuno anyway) in this eroge. Of course they were all pretty nice, but I found that Yuno’s voice was somewhat irritating. Not sure if the VA didn’t like the role or tried too much, it sounded too unatural and is actually a little monotone.
I found the Kai + Delta combi to be mindblowing. Kai is just so cute, damned. Of course, Miharu is too \o/
All in all?
Mechamimi needs quite a bit of work to actually be good. Of course it’s decent, much more than norn stuff or weird rape stuff anyway. Still, it’s a far cry from good and a stone’s throw away from being better than average. Still, if there’s one reason you should get this, get this for the mech girls. I don’t have mech fetish, but this sure is cute =D.
