Gosh I don't know why, but Akio's route was the hardest for me! I had to search up the walkthrough haahaha. I overall enjoyed the game and Erai was probably my favorite. It was short, but bittersweet, rip Hoshi's mom. The whole time I was playing I had weird deja vu! A while back I played a game called "don't take it personally, babe". It was one of the first visual novels I ever played and I can't even remember where I downloaded it from. But the art in this game was so eerily identical to like two or three of the characters in don't take it personally babe, I was freaking out hahaha. But overall, I enjoyed the game. Keep up the good work!

I'm really glad you enjoyed it, and yeah, the art I used was from the same person that did the art for 'don't take it personally, babe' so that's why they look so identical.

As for now, I did only Akio's route, but I must tell I'm in love with this game. Sure it's short, but the feels... the FEELS!

It's so sad, but somehow its bittersweet ending is an interesting change of pace from regular otome games. Well, I love really happy endings, but it's nice to have something else sometimes.

I really like the character art too!

Thank you for making this game! And if you happen to create another one, I'd gladly play it!

Thank you so much! Your comment really made my day.
