* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Tsukasa x Yuka and Tanomura x Hibari sex scenes are presented in a much better light than the others, which are mostly rape scenes anyway.

* HotSpringsEpisode: One scene has our heroes bathe in gender-segregated hot springs. It turns into a comedy when Hibari leans over the divide to try to bum sake off of Tanomura, and then into another comedy when Aroe leaves the bath to goad Tsukasa into chasing her (and despite Tanomura's subsequent lewd remarks, there is nothing sexual about this; Aroe just likes being chased as a game and apparently forgot that she and Tsukasa were naked and in towels at the time).

An {{Utsuge}} VisualNovel by Flying Shine that focuses on the lives of six characters after surviving a massive earthquake. The story focuses on the group's struggle to survive in a world where law is no more and nothing is promised. To make matters worse, the earthquake happened on Christmas during a heavy snowstorm, which is not relenting no matter how long the group waits. Access to the outside world is cut off, and no signs of help are noticed, despite the quake being too large for a country to just ignore. Even after the group manages to successfully secure a stable life with other survivors in spite of the quake and endless snow and cold, many problems and complications arise. NeedsMoreLove.
