How can I possibly raise a girl’s affection high enough to get her to partner up with Ayato in such a short time?
Why does she continually reject Ayato’s attempts to ask her on a date — is it RNG-related or am I doing something wrong?
If you’re the type that loves to complete every single route in a dating sim or visual novel, you’ll squeeze many, many more hours out of this.
Unfortunately, for me, the repetitive gameplay and lack of variety in the actual narrative didn’t encourage me to keep going.
None of these characters establish identities outside of the prototypical anime archetypes.
Kirin will always react with blushing mortification to anything with even the slightest hint of sexuality; Julis, the resident , will pretend not to like the lead character despite it being incredibly obvious that she does.
Sure, there are the obligatory screens full of text that explain different systems, but none of these are accessible again if you need them.
Besides that, you’ve got just to find yourself a partner before the story ends prematurely, and I found myself with questions that not even those walls of text could answer.
You play as a guy just admitted to one of those schools, Seidoukan Academy, and are just lucky enough to have all the attractive, notable female students after you.
And while protagonist Ayato Amagiri seems to be canonically interested in the amazingly-named First Princess of Lieseltania, Julis-Alexia von Riessfelt, this Vita spinoff gives you the opportunity to woo one of the other main girls: mature student council president Claudia, air-headed childhood pal Saya or the shy and easily-embarrassed Kirin, who’s actually the top-ranked student at the school.
Unfortunately, it’s way too light on narrative to leave much of an impact; for a game about a tournament, it lacks the sort of excitement and tension you’d expect, and even the dating sim elements pay off in thin dividends.
