Spoiler for Main characters:

Spoiler for Sub Characters:



I played the game and I thought it's great. But since I've played very few of love simulation/VN game I don't have many game as benchmark so that's that ^^

So far I've only read the 1st chap...cant say much about it...just tht hope it isnt like kimiro focus

Kirito 2012-02-26 23:16

Look more like Amagami to me plus the main character reminds of Junichi and the main girl looks like a Haruka/Ryoko hybrid.

Valky 2012-02-27 15:31

The first chapter of Sweet Snap seems promising. Still no translated version of Your Eyes Only btw?

Judging by only chapter 1, it looks like to be focused on Haruka, but who knows. But from what I've played on the PSP, her story(ies) was good, I enjoyed it.

Haven't found one yet, I've only read the RAW ^^
Spoiler for Your Eyes Only chapter 1 preview and summary:




Btw, I've finally cleared all the girls story, only once each girl though). All of them are good. Hard to pick which one my true favorite, but for me the least interesting are Nonoka and Rina (I've only played the L Suki route for both of them). Hoping the mangas will adapt it well.

Also, just like my friend told, there is Kanon route on the game. Damn that girl is so cute and adorable :heh:

Any pics of the MC?

The male protagonist? You can see the "Your Eyes Only" version of him inside the spoiler tag on my previous post but there aren't any picture of him from the PSP game. I like his look on YEO version better than SS.

As pictures of the girls, I saved some from my games. I'd be more than happy to share it here but it may contain spoiler :heh:

judasmartel 2012-02-28 10:20

[JokingMode] What a dork. [/JokingMode]

But man, all the girls are really cute, so much that I want to take them home. Especially his childhood friend, his sister, and the twintails girl.

Hmm... Sounds like SS is the childhood friend's route.

Luminisk 2012-02-28 11:48

Nylon and Yuziki N Dash doing echi stuff now?

Kirito 2012-03-01 04:28

Chapter 2 is out. Maeda's little sister reminds me of Miya from Amagami.

bakAnki 2012-03-01 06:44

Yeah, I think Sweet Snap will go to Haruka end since they skipped other girls introduction. But whether it's L(ove) or H(appy) route is still unclear since Maeda hasn't made his choice yet.

Kudou manage to become cool and pervert at the same time XD
Moreover on the game since he's voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa :3


And apparently there will be the third manga adaptation, Memorial Pictures. Seems it will be focused to Kanon and Momoko-sensei, the two bonus characters on the game that required player to cleared all 7 girls to unlocked their route.

This one will start on March 12th on Earth Star.

I've also updated the character information on the first post with respective voice actor and two characters I didn't put before.

*sees Haruka's Panty Shot*

Image file saved.

EDIT: Oh, there are a lot of panty shots here, eh?

Now, since the manga version has different versions, there's no canon route for this game, right?

Utsuro no Hako 2012-03-01 12:51

Hmm, join the club with the pervy stalker dude who wants me to be a pervy stalker dude as well, or the club with three girl members, at least one of whom is hot.

This is a choice?

Syokool 2012-03-01 12:59

This series seem interesting. I only have read ch 1-2 of Photo Kano already, and I liked it.

Never expect this was originally a VN :D

Seems like I'll have one more thing to get in my next trip.

Btw, the pics are so cute, I can't wait for more XD

Is there usually any canon route for love simulation game like this?:confused:
I guess there isn't any canon route for the PSP game. Haruka, Kanon, and Momoko route has an epilogue after the end credit though.

LOL.

Well on the game it's needed so you can go to Story L(ove) for the Photo Club or Story H(appy) for the Photography Club for each girl. It is weird if you see it as third person XD



Btw I finally cleared Kanon and Momoko route just now. That was fun, and I think that is it for this game for now, time to move to Haganai Portable X3
Here is some picture I took from the game if anyone interested about the game. These aren't from the main story event so it's spoiler-free :3


judasmartel 2012-03-01 14:29

Well, AFAIK, Kira Kira has one, Kirari's True End. I actually thought previous love simulation games have canon routes, but it seems they're now getting rid of that feature to appease as many members of the eroge fanbase as possible.

It sure sucks for someone who likes Lolis to have a Tsundere for a canon route, or for someone who likes Tsunderes to have a Shrinking Violet for a canon route.

And BTW, Kanon and Momoko are BOTH beautiful. I like both of their archetypes, namely the Little Sister (being the youngest sibling I never had a little sister, and the closest thing I ever had to one ended up raising me, I kid you not) and the Teacher (I tend to like and attract some of these IRL, though the God of Conquest says this eroge archetype has usually the hardest route).

LOL yea seems like a no brainer don't it:heh:

Like it alot so far but if I had to say one thing I kinda think I would have liked it a little more if there was still a little more tension between the guy and Haruka.
Seems the distance between them just disappeared in an instant after that little talk about the camera.
Now not to say that I don't like it as I'm fine with it nor is it unrealistic as old friends can easily be all buddy like very quickly again after some time but it's manga gotta throw in a little drama here and there at times.

But if I had to say the big plus of this series, it's drawn by Yuzuki N'!!!:bow:

Hope to see the others get translated as well.

The first chapter of Phone Kano - Your Eyes Only has just been released. I'm loving this can't wait for a new chapter.

I hope it's a monthly series, not bi-monthly or longer. After all it's only 1 chapter released so far :heh:


And to celebrate the translated of YOE, inu-neko-usamimi girls gallery~ :D

judasmartel 2012-03-03 09:42

Hmm... The kouhai route, huh? So are kouhai routes in VNs? How hard are they in general?
