I've just started playing it. The English patch is quite good(they do leave a number of terms in Japanese that would probably be better off translated), but it's a shame they haven't yet translated most of the menu items. Hopefully that'll be done in a later version of the patch.
Well, the art quality is AMAZING. Both in character sprites, C Gs
and backgrounds. It's off the f**king chain. Success have put a huge amount of effort into their art, and believe me, it shows.
As for the rest of the game, I couldn't really comment - you'd have to ask the OP, or someone else who's finished it. Call me back in a couple of weeks and I'll give my opinion :)
Although I have to say it is kind of jarring going from other V Ns
where sprites are essentially static to Aoi Shiro, where not only do the sprites have lip movements synched to the audio, but they also blink at a realistic rate. It's uncanny. At some points it feels more like you're watching subtitled anime than playing a VN. Not that this is bad, of course - see above comment on art quality - but it's just unusual if you're used to traditional V Ns
