I'M BACK GUYSS (this is THE long review)
i loved the memes in the game (all hail the meme lord, kuronan) and the brief japanese really made me happy!
as expected from me, i got a bad end on first try (lonan's route) and really loved ALL of the characters, no kidding: ALL of the characters (except that rude b*tch spike). including salt (i know his name is malt) and pepper and i really liked how they didn't feel angry after seeing wren, instead felt happy. though we'll discuss about the characters later.
first the art: it was simply BEAUTIFUL. the main menu art is still engraved in my mind, like, it was soooo gorgeous and the characters also were really fine. wren is really pretty and her personality is so cool <3 i love her so much!
the bgm in the main menu is so good and suitable for this game that whenever i hear the clock's sound, it sends shivers down my spine and seeing the memento gallery after finishing all the endings made me feel really happy (except the bad end ones; they were so painful T_T) and small details such as the "exit" button written as "stop time" etc (i think there were more, but i don't remember) these details connect so well to the story that i'm pretty amazed.
THE ENDINGS ( SLIGHT SPOILERS)
i know i should have saved this topic for last but i just had a feeling that i should save the characters for last
anyways, the story was pretty good, which made the endings even better!
lonan's route was really heartwarming and i really loved his and wren's dynamic (they were so in-sync lmaoo) and obviously, the good end (though i sobbed for half an hour because of invar at the end...nevermind, in all happy ends!) the cooking scene in the memories scene made me pretty emotional. i'm saving content to write for the "characters" section so this is the end of his route.
now, galvin's route. first of all, i fell in love with him at first sight after seeing him in lonan's route (i immediately understood that he is a tsundere) and couldn't wait to play his route. again, his bad end made me pretty sad and boyy i didn't know that he didn't like gooey and sweet things (god i love sweets!!!) if i knew, i wouldn't have chosen the nutella-banana crepe T_T (i didn't know choices of what to eat affected the ending and it most fairly did) his route was HILARIOUS and his backstory of how he came to like spicy things made me wheeze. i also liked his and kana's dynamic (they're so lovable T_T) and his route's review has come to end.
it's time for the ~characters~
as i said in the start, i loved wren and i can kinda relate to her anxiety of about "what if they don't like me?" or "will they be disappointed in me?" and honestly, these thoughts of mine always flood my daily life, though i can be open on the internet (i couldn't do even that a few days ago and i had been using itch for a while, but i never once commented on VNs and had the same thoughts even though i don't know anyone T_T) but i'm kind oo confident now and can express my thoughts without any problems (only on the internet)
now, back to the topic, i loved wren and her character design! <3
lonan was sooo cute and cheerful (i like almost all of the dere types, and obviously, derederes too!) he cheered up my mood and made me feel reallyy happy (obviously his character dynamic with wren too!)
but i kind of got yandere vibes for a sec when he punched spike, though it lasted only for a moment then completely disappeared. but it would've been a huge plot twist if he was actually a yandere, but he's okay as the deredere he is! also his character design was really good and totally suited his character, especially the closed eyes and :3
now, kana! she was the only female character as much as i remember and was so easy-going! i liked the way she was always the one to suggest/lead a group hug (and GOD the chibis were cute! T_T) i also really liked her character design and also how she introduced galvin as her little brother and he got annoyed! as i mentioned before, i liked their dynamic too!
lastly, galvin! i LOVE tsunderes and couldn't get enough of him! i just bumped into him in my first try and instantly knew he was a tsundere!(he kind of reminds me of chuuya from bungou stray dogs, probable because of the way he wears his coat, height and tsundere-ness) he was also really handsome (though was a perfectionist) and made me simp on him everytime i saw him! he was the grump-short-height type and obviously, i love them!
it's the end of the review, but i wanted to ask sometheng...why are they wearing winter clothes when it's FREAKING JUNE!!???? it bothered me the whole time! (it's okay if you don't reply *can't blame you* because i know almost nobody reads my long-ass reviews :D)
the game was really good and thrilling. most recommended!
