Sure you're just not forgetting to put the disc in?

Yeah the disk is what I don't have anymore actually. I must have deleted it for some reason, but I didn't download anything large since then. I have no idea why I did that though. It could have been an accident, but that seems unlikely since it's in a really out of the way location.

Well I'm downloading that again, and with luck it will be done by the time my bike ride is over.

A friend is someone you trust to help you move. A best friend is someone you trust to hide the body.

I got it all working now. Good times especially since I managed to keep my saved data.

Mana just ran away from home, and Sachi finally got serious.

I assume I'm approaching the climax of Sachi's story then.

Using the time he took away as a banked time for when she really needed it was very shrewd.

I really like Houzuki.

I just despise Ririko.

I like Ririko, but I can see why you don't. You get a little more information on her later but a lot of the flashbacks don't put her in a good light at all.

Have you finished Sachi's route section then?

Oh yeah and actually I'm done with Touka's too. I thought her mom was her sister, not her step aunt thingy.

Poor Isono...

Full aunt, actually.

Natsumi definitley had the best overall epilogue in the fandisc but I also liked Sachi's.

Ririko's was annoying since she was just being a Jerkass most of the time but eh.

Also Sharin's my second favorite visual novel ever. Ken-chan's top tier.

Which chapter did you guys enjoy the most?

I felt the first half of the routes was usually more entertaining than their conclusions. Once Sachi started painting I just kinda stopped caring, for example. I'd probably say the last arc was the best for me, though. That or Sachi's.

I really enjoyed Natsumi's route, but Sachi's my favorite heroine. As for characters, both Kenichi and Masaomi are my favorites. Haven't finished the fandisc yet.

I think I'm giving up on the game. I've given it a few hard tries, and it just can't keep my attention.

You're missing out, but okay.

Is there anything in particular that's boring you? And which part do you get to?
I'll admit that the story doesn't get going until the holiday where obligations don't have to be followed.

I'm almost done with Touka's story, or am I done? I can't really remember. I just don't really care for any of the characters. Sachi was ok, but that was about it. I really dislike Natsumi and I just flat out hate his sister so I just can't really bring myself to care about finishing the story.

I only persons I really like are Houzuki and the MC. I do enjoy the setting, but the story itself always feels like it's just dragging along. It feels like it takes forever to get anywhere.

The pacing is notoriously bad. If you don't want to finish, I'm not going to make you. It is nearly as good as G-Senjou no Maou though.

Natsumi's route is pretty good, even though I can't care less for Natsumi herself. I had trouble picking up the game after Touka's route myself; trust me, the next arc is where all the development really starts.

I think that in order for me to finish this I'm going to need the time to do it largely in one sitting. Which I just don't have right now. There's a good chance that I'll pick it up again at some later date, but that might be years from now.

Well, I finally finished it. It really could have used a feature to skip scenes instantly like Fate/Stay Night had, given that the route system basically demands that you run multiple files parallel to each other if you want to get all the endings without starting from scratch.

I actually figured out that Ririko was right there with him some time in Touka's chapter. the fact that he said at the beginning that he loves his sister, in the present tense, led me to conclude that she was probably still alive and he knows it, and the game drops a lot of hints that someone else is there with him, and I thought it seemed like a suitably sci fi dystopian sort of Maximum Penalty, which they conspicuously mention that everyone knows the meaning of, but they were clearly holding out on explaining for a Big Reveal.

I didn't really feel like the pacing was an issue until after Sachi's arc. Before that, the slice of life stuff was enough to carry the story; the setting and Kenichi's weirdness were fresher, and I thought Sachi had more charisma than Touka and Kyouko.

I didn't feel like Natsumi was really the lead heroine though, so much as the lead heroine was the entire harem. I felt like it was foreshadowed with Kenichi's dad's lifestyle, and the fact that his "wives" were apparently all happy with the arrangement. I was expecting Kenichi to get some character development where he eventually changed his mind about there being anything wrong with it.
...eventually, we will reach a maximum entropy state where nobody has their own socks or underwear, or knows who to ask to get them back.
There is a harem ending if you don't have enough points with Natsumi, actually.

Personally I feel that Ririko made for a better main heroine.

[up][up] There's a fandisc to the story, part of which tells Houzuki's backstory. It's basically a must-read after Sharin, so if you're interested, you should also play that.

[up][up]I got that one. I got all of them. I didn't feel like it came with enough resolution though, it felt like he was stalling on making a decision.

I do think Ririko has the best ending though, since Kenichi manages to come away with a happy life without giving up on changing society for the better.

Well, the story kind of revolves around Ririko. She's his motivation, after all. I also liked her ending more.

And yeah, you should check out the fandisc. The epilogues are pretty so so but Houzuki chapter is neat.

After a few months of procrastinating, I got around to reading Houzuki's chapter. Then I couldn't stop reading. Should've gone to bed two hours ago but it was really freaking intense.

LOL, Eri's hilarious in the Omake. Though the H-scene was unneeded imo.

What about the fandisk? I mean, what are its contents?

Overall, a great VN. It's my third following Fate/Stay Night, so I expected another great VN, and it didn't disappointed me. Well, maybe only during Touka's route, but only near the end. The ending could have been better, though.

Now it's time for G-Senjou no Maou!
