Of course, in particular, Fall in Love's "contest" is one of the most hilarious memorable moments in my visual novel reading.

And so, to game impressions. As expected, story impressions may take a bit longer to type up, so here's my thoughts on the system. It's spoilered, but there are no story spoilers involved.
Spoiler:


Oh yes, and I would just like to say a big "HUH?" to a particular element in Sara's route, which people might see later... It was...surprising to say the least. After finishing the game, I think back to that route and think on what the point of that element was.

Editing in the other elements later

My final words on Da Capo III

Spoiler for Da Capo III in its entirety:


Sakura never catches a break, doesn't she? Not in D.C., D.C. II, nor even here. I think she got the shortest end of the stick through the whole franchise.

Ehh......so..... Is this game save to play when there is someone else around?

I heard that while it's labeled as all-age, it's still NSFW????

EDIT: Eh...never mind, I was hit by that CG..........

Just finished DC3. I must say that each route is pretty average and feel shorter compare to DC2. IMO DC3 isn't really about the heroine (like DC/DC2), but about the whole situation they are in and each route is just a branch of the whole story. Maybe that is why Balzac finds that the heroines route bland and the da capo route is the best out of all of them.

Spoiler for guessing:

Ugh, I said I would resist until the english version will be out, but ultimately I was too "weak-minded" and looked into the first few in-game days at the prologue .

Spoiler for Prologue:

That should be Mikoto for your Koyomi, Mahou.

Suginami wanting Kiyotaka is a direct callback to the previous two games, where the MC is always on the blacklist or the first person to be interrogated for information about Suginami's whereabouts.

Well, just so you know, this is a D.C. I and II fandisc, so not really related to D.C. III. But in either case, the official homepage is here. I think it may have been discussed here briefly either in the D.C. II game thread or the Eroge Impressions thread, and you could probably ask about it in either of those two places.

Spoiler for Surprise:
I whole-heartedly agree because I have just reached the point .
And it was fun to see Minatsu again. She looked a bit younger here than in DC II, but that may just be due to my hazy memory.

Spoiler for general stuff:


As for my route "expectations": Even though I know how most Da Capo routes are built up, I still hope that there won't be a disappointment like D.C II's Koko route. As I liked Nemu and Yume in the previous games quite much, I think there won't be much problems with Himeno's chara.

Finished this a few days ago.
I liked it very much (then again, I tend to like a lot everything Da Capo related). As mentioned, is not particularly original, but I found it a solid execution nonetheless, and liked the greater plot thickness.
As for heroines, didn't like Ricca that much, and on the other hand found Sara much more moe than I would have expected.
But still, the best character is Shiki. Let's hope for a DCIIIPC?

@relentlessflame
That thing about III/Zero was quite interesting.

Spoiler:
@Ricca: The disappointing part(s) of her route were that she was more adorable as a main girl during the prologue. Yes, she does a great job as a supporting character, but her route was hardly and raburabu/icha-icha as her prologue character kept telling and it felt thus slow-progressing. At least I found the drama resolve touching; the same as Charles.

My favorite character by now must be Charles and Sara in terms of rabu-rabu. The former was very cute in this regard even before they became a couple, while the latter was, as you mentioned, a surprise in how moe Sara turned out .

The way I see it, the DC3 group will probably get relegated to sidecast.

(Will reply in the clear because I'll only talk in generalities.)

I suspect that D.C. III would have been an entirely different game with an entirely different cast, and that what we got here is basically what D.C. Zero would have been -- perhaps without the prologue that was designed to sort of throw people off the scent for a while and play into the overall plot. I think they basically just changed Zero to III for marketing reasons (since the originally-planned III was canned for whatever reason).

Of course, though, there will no doubt be fandisks, and I suppose they do have some options.

Spoiler for Fandisk ideas, related to D.C. III plot structure:

Time for my bickering of the route impressions. Mind you, I'm not done with the game yet, but just finished Aoi's route.

Spoiler for Sara, Charles, Ricca, Himeno, Aoi:


Outside of spoilers: I loved Shiki and how she stomped her "master" verbally at every possible moment . And Chibi-Sakura is very adorable and cute. Too bad she hardly had any moments during the 5 "normal" routes.

Edit: And I finished the VN a few hours ago. Da capo route was fine for me and connected imho smoothly back to the prologue end before Weather Vane started.
Spoiler for da capo route:

Now I want a 18+ fandisc where you can actually date the present time crew . The everlasting tree is already there so the foundation for some wish-fulfilling drama would be given *lol*.
