Now let’s see if I can still write reviews shall we…
Some Rubbish Information
Company = Cabbit
Scenario = 御厨みくり (No idea who he is but hey he’s good)
Genre = Tragic slice of life romance
What’s so special = The surprisingly well written story, the well placed elements of surprise and the overall tragic theme
I wasn’t going to write a review on this actually but seeing as how inactive I am and that I do have some time on my hands since it is a one week off after all, I decided to just write something. Anyway This is quite an unexpectedly decent eroge. The theme already intrigued me but the overall surprises and climaxes in this story was really pulled off quite well. Let’s get on with the review shall we.
You start off as Kai, a guy who lost all his memories and is lying in the middle of a forest with no idea where to go and what to do. Walking around he finds a beautiful lake. But all he could do was laugh as he had no idea where he was.
she appeared. She invited him to join them and live together with them.
She brings him to this mansion where he’ll live, together with 11 other people. In a forest where no one knows.
There we go. I didn’t feel like putting any spoilers at all since this eroge really rely on the surprise factor to pull off most of it’s climaxes.
So first off the review on the story…
Well it’s not a pure romance story that’s for certain. The protag can and will die in the story. Not just once too. So be prepared to get killed over and over as you play this eroge. Which is fine by me considering all the factors that lead to his death.
That said however, once you manage to enter into one of the heroine’s routes, you’ll be greeted by their entire past and also bits and pieces of your past. That’s actually what’s so intriguing actually, the past life of these girls. Not to mention the protag. The gradual unfolding is what I liked best about this eroge.
They did try to pull in the factor of laughter but I find the jokes rather weak in this case and I didn’t really laugh much. Still it’s better than a straight tragic story right?
The tragic sense of this eroge makes you sympathize with the characters, thus making it a factor for you to actually want to see what would happen to them afterwards. A good idea seeing as how I would rather read about a character I give a damned about right?
Overall I think the story part in this eroge is excellent and quite a refreshing change from all the other typical eroges. It’s definitely recommended that you play this eroge for the story, even if it’s just for the story.
Protagonist. Rather moody but always willing to help. Doesn’t remember his past. Good in sports and the violin. Also he’s not that much of a ヘタレ protag. So that’s quite a good thing. He’s actually understanding. Wow.
She’s so called the leader in the group. At least everyone listens to her as she lived in the mansion the longest. Soft spoken and ladylike, she has the trust of almost everyone and dictates most of the rules in the place. Quite scary when angry though. She probably the most mysterious of the lot since it’s quite obvious that she has a lot of secrets.
Her evil face
Well this one’s a little… too playful. But the kids love her. Helps out a lot too. A bright and cheerful character. But sometimes, she says something unexpected. Personally my favourite character as her story is quite unexpected and has many different sides to it.
She can be a good mother at least =D
空音 (Sorane) and 陸乃 (Rikuno)
Didn’t see the point in separating these two as they are one and the same. Everything they do is exactly the same. Talking included. Quite a scary combi once you think about it. Twins who are exactly the same… Anyway, they are kinda cute and can be sarcastic at times. Oh and they love reading the future from tarot cards
Quite the introvert. Also clumsy. Still she will always try her best to help others. Loves to clean which kind of explains why she wears the maid uniform… not. Anyway, she thinks of herself quite lowly. Oh and she’s really bad at studying too.
Well she makes a good maid on all accounts
LOLI. Nuff said. Ok maybe not. Unexpectedly (or not) she’s actually the same age as the protag. Behaves like a kid, loves to sleep and hates studying. She loves to sew, which is actually the only thing she’s good at actually. Sticks to Michiru a lot and always gets into quarrels with Chisha. Always says the wrong things.
Mysterious person who seldom leaves her room. She doesn’t leave her room much at all and doesn’t talk to anyone. Her food is always sent to her door. No one really knows much about her. One of my favourites.
Nice dagger though
A girl who arrived after the protag. No idea who she is and is quite afraid of everything that’s happening to and around her. Quite a straightforward character and because she’s unstable mentally, a lot of quarrels ensued because of it. Nobody likes her much. Unfortunately.
This is actually the only non spoiler picture i could find lol
So finally we’re done with the characters. A tad much don’t you think?
Let’s get on with the art.
To be honest I’m not impressed by the art. It’s rather typical. The colors were nice though, it’s gives a very contrasty and animeish feel. But other than that I didn’t think it was that great. Then again playing too much stuff from Nitro and Abhar eroges.
Overall decent. Nothing better nothing worse.
They went towards a very classical feel. Since it is a mansion and all. I got no idea what instrument they used but it’s mostly calm and serene music. Of course, they do have a few outstanding pieces. For example my favourite is BGM12 which sounds absolutely tragic and wonderful. Quite a nice soundtrack but then again, I love classical so best make your own judgement.
There’s quite a lot of scenes actually, a grand total of 21. Then again, this eroge has a LOT of characters with the addition that it’s frickin long so that’s not really that much per se. Quality wise… well it’s decent I guess. I didn’t really find much interest as the story was more interesting than the H scene. I wouldn’t recommend to get this game for the H scenes though.
Actually, I find that the story element really outshines almost everything in this eroge. It’s excellent. The other elements not so much. But I would highly recommend you to get this eroge if you have the patience (for it is quite long) to play it. It’s definitely gonna be worth it.
