* MeaningfulName: "Arata" is a homonym for the word "new", as in his "new life" after being taken to Japan for his own safety.

to:

* MeaningfulName: MateOrDie: Played straight and deconstructed. Interestingly, having sex with Chris and the (chosen) Princess is not Arata's idea, at least not initially. When Chris and Arata's fusion starts to weaken, April insists that the only effective way to restore their bond is to "become one," literally. Having no other remotely effective options in their extremely life-or-death situation, they reluctantly agree, and although April is proven correct, both Chris and Arata are immediately wracked with guilt afterwards, until the fusion magic's side effect takes over, and they effectively become addicted to it, at which point neither of them cares, regardless of time or place. [[spoiler: Regardless of route, Arata and Chris, immediately after being reunited, start making out, right in front of all the other princess candidates, and Chris is completely naked.]]

"Arata" is a homonym for the word "new", as in his "new life" after being taken to Japan for his own safety.safety.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: When Arata learns Chris is a girl, he experiences an epic FreakOut, complete with screaming.




to:

* TraumaInducedAmnesia: Discussed and parodied. When it becomes obvious that the fusion with Chris is suffering due to a rather UnsettlingGenderReveal, Chris suggests bashing Arata around the head until he forgets, but April then comes back that even if this "technique" works as intended, having Arata walk in on Chrs or vice-versa could easily undo the effort.



* DamselInDistress: Whenever Chris is not combined with Arata to be Iris, he ''will'' get himself into massive amounts of trouble. Humans (and princes) are just that weak compared to the generic monsters of the game, let alone the princesses.

Added DiffLines:

* IntimateHealing: At one point, when Arata's healing factor isn't enough to deal with a serious injury, April insists that the correct way for Chris to heal him is for both of them to be naked in bed together while Chris licks him. Cue UnsettlingGenderReveal.


Added DiffLines:

* MateOrDie: When the fusion between Chris and Arata begins to weaken, April insists that the only effective way to strengthen it again is to ''literally'' "become one" which is the common Japanese euphemism for sex. Although highly reluctant, having no other viable options in a very life-or-death situation, Chris agrees. Then the fusion magic's side effect starts taking over...

* SurpriseIncest: Arata doesn't learn that he and Chris are half-siblings and cousins until long ''after'' they've started having sex with each other. By that point, they are both so magically addicted to it that he no longer cares.



* SurpriseIncest: She doesn't learn she's Arata's half-sister and cousin until long after she starts having sex with Arata. By that point, even if there was a taboo in her home nation, she's too magically addicted to him to stop.



* BrotherSisterIncest: Arata and Shizuka have been rather attracted to each other for awhile, but with the whole sibling thing it wasn't really an option either was willing to pursue. Since they're revealed to be step-siblings only, the issue is side-stepped.

* CurbStompBattle: Shizuka is built up as extremely powerful before she's available for use, so rather than give her some sort of arbitrary limitation the story just makes her PurposelyOverpowered and allows you to tear through the final day effortlessly.
