Introduction

In Masaya’s world, flying is as simple as riding a bike; all you need to do is strap on a pair of anti-graviton shoes. He used to be considered a child prodigy of the popular sport ‘flying circus’, but he stopped after suffering a crushing defeat. However, he regained his passion for the sport while teaching the transfer student Asuka how to fly. So, he returns to the sky, this time while holding Asuka’s hand. How high can they fly together?
However, Micchi’s summary has a little flaws The sport despite being widely popular is still regulated, and in Japan the use of Gravity Shoes is only exempted in the 4 islands which is where our setting takes place Fukurujima, Kunashima, Kasamatsujima and Kamidoorijima, each island also houses a school with their own Flying circus club where rivals and fellow players meet and do flying battle, else since the “world” is in the same place as sprite’s first game Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate we would see the appearance of Gra-shoes/Grasha in that game but nope.

Characters

倉科 明日香 (Kurashina Asuka)

Asuka

The transfer student that our protagonist Masaya meets and teaches her the basics of the island’s anti-gravity shoes and subsequently the sport he came to love Flying Circus, what can I say about her personality is she’s very positive and that our protagonist Masaya sees in her is his past child self with the same energy for the sport.

鳶沢 みさき (Tobisawa Misaki)

Misaki

My pace classmate of Masaya, little did she knew she was indirectly involve with Masaya’s quitting flying circus; brilliant but lazy and takes food and rest above all priorities is also childhood friends with Mashiro and they are also neighbors and subsequently likes Udon because Mashiro’s family owns one.

有坂 真白 (Arisaka Mashiro)

Mashiro

Loli kouhai underdog, her route is pretty much romance so her route is a good start without too much of flying action

市ノ瀬 莉佳 (Ichinose Rika)

Rika

Masaya neighbor, ala “girl next door” she’s from Furukujima’s Flying Circus club and is therefore in rival schools with the other 3 schools one of which where our protagonist along with his “harem” study. a very serious girl and follows rules of Flying Circus to the core.

日向 晶也 (Hinata Masaya)

The child talent trained by Shion of PSO2… I mean by Kagami Aoi with his love for Flying Circus but due to unfortunate events he suddenly quit the sport. But due prodding from Asuka, Misaki and Mashiro he becomes the coach for Kunashima’s FC team dub thee as “Masaya’s harem”.

Music Menu

Sadly for all the shit it gives me no Music mode :< Elements Garden has done a good job on the music though with the OP vocals from I’ve and the ED is heroine centric as they are performed by the respective heroine VAs.

Opinions/Last Words

A very good solid title from Sprite of course thats without saying the PSV port and Anime news way back then, it has been suggested that in reading this title one should take Asuka’s route last and indeed take her route last because the final scene from the game makes a good touch if Asuka’s route is taken as the last one, one can enter Mashiro’s route first because it has less action but more lovey-dovey romance, then Rika’s route and or Misaki then Asuka, though for the savy players trust me Misaki’s confession scene and first H scene totally came out of nowhere, of course considering this game came out late last year and was very very very hyped I couldnt play it due to computer problems and god damn anti-piracy protection :< buy the game though if you can its worth it… I wont say how much the translation for this title is going but I’m not minding it. Play it if you like flying human dogfights because pretty trail lights.

    I’ve been meaning to start this title for a while now, but I keep getting distracted. Reading your review makes me a bit more inclined to give it a try…so it bumps up a few places on my backlog.

    I didn’t really know much about this game…except that girls + flying = lots of panty shots. Also, a few of the characters seem a bit chuuni from what I gathered from the game’s two OP videos.

    I pretty much guessed that Asuka would have the strongest route. However it’s a very pleasant surprise to hear that Mashiro’s route is filled with lots of romance because I find her to be the most appealing of the lot😄
