Introduction

Spring is the season of first meetings. That’s what Kazuma thought when he transferred into Ainoshima Gakuen in the middle of the spring term. Indeed, the moment he passed through the school gates, he was accosted by two girls asking him to join their respective student councils. There are two student councils at the school, the traditional Gekka-kai and the avant-garde Tendou-kai. They are always competing against each other and their support is split dead even. It is up to the lucky boy ‘Three Seven’ Kazuma to cast the last vote to break the tie and that’s why they covet him so much. Which side will he choose?

Characters

倉賀野 聖良 (Kuragano Sera)

Sera
President of Gekka-kai, so how do I sum this up… all I know she’s an oujou-sama just like Haruhi who wants to keep a traditional culture but that doesnt get brought up very often Gekka-kai side has the usual plot; Yuzuki’s route includes this of suddenly the bomb of romance is prohibited… but that doesnt stop the icha-icha NOO… certainly the drama was easily hand waved because of our dear protagonist who just happens… to have “connection” from high places.

駒形 ゆづき (Komagata Yuzuki)

Yuzuki
Treasurer of Gekka-kai, works at a cafe with an okama tenchou, has the same plot line with Sera but again that easily gets resolved

天神平 陽姫 (Tendindaira Haruhi)

Haruhi
President of Tendou-kai, another oujo uhuh… her route huh… well you should be proud to be a lolicon… lotion play and uhh… yeah nothing more there was some drama but that concerns about her very doting father but that easily get’s resolved… SERIOUSLY THE LACK OF PLOT IS NICE.

神流 歌奈 (Kanna Kana)Kana

Vice President of Tendou-kai, well she was once an oujo who fell from grace and saved by the Tenjindaira group has some abandonment issues but that get’s easily taken care off has a lot of fera scenes though… like 4 of 6 h-scenes purely fera, I guess because she doesnt want to take the step further orz…

System

Title
Title

Side story icons appear after the route’s epilogue call it an epilogue’s epilogue orz…

TextboxTextbox

MMM Pink the ok but since I put the transparency way up a bit…. anyway the side option appear at the bottom right

Backlog

SCENE REWIND YES! MOAR PINK!

SelectionSelection

Probably the most important selection in the game… I followed a walkthrough so I may have a feeling that your locked to either Gekka-kai or Tendou-kai if one flag is higher or else that’s only but an illusion of choice :X

ConfigConfig

Very simple Config screen with multiple tabs

Load and SaveSave
Load

save and load are the same without any design changes no fuss no buss, click play easy as that, the lower right icon will indicate the route… using the SD art

Omake mode

CG MenuCG mode

Mmm your typical CG viewer click and click some more till you go clickity click.

Recollection MenuRecollection mode

Hotness may vary… I have a feeling each heroine satisfy a fetish… BUT MAN I’ll be honest I secretly wanted hairjob from Yuzuki… YES MANIAC!!!

Music MenuCG mode

The music menu is attached to the CG menu… and H-scene menu I guess… the music is so so

Opinions/Last Words

The game’s lack of plot is I know typical of Marmalade games but not I would say is also on par of Whirpool’s trademark comedy it’s been so long since I last read a Marmalade-soft game to be honest, a very slice of life short stories… YES THEY ARE SHORT depending on how fast your read 6 hours would be a good minimum, the character designs MmmMm… all I know I started with Sera then Yuzuki then Haruhi ending with Kana but it doesnt mean that I reserved the best for last ohh no… this is still a medium tier chara-ge so choose who you like… it doesnt matter the drama is easily swept under the rugs while H-scenes are happening here and there if my “review” of another game here has a say on it. just go enjoy the ahem… characters?

Ratingsproxy.jpg

Story: 5/10 it’s a hybrid of plot and Nuki but eh…
Character: 8/10
CGs: 9/10
Music: 7/10

Wooo… done… I’m bored… I tried to like Harunochi but… no EVEN IF IT HAS SAKURA HANPEN’S ART
