Oh well, onto Chihaya for more inconsistencies I guess. I sure love this game.

Now that I have reread the heroine routes in English, I believe Romeo secretly disliked some of the characters the other two writers created. That's why Kotori's and Akane's routes practically didn't feature Shizuru, Chihaya and Lucia at all. On the other hand, Ryukishi07 was fine with Chihaya and Shizuru, but refrained from using Kotori and Akane.

Chihaya could have perfectly appeared in Akane's (maybe Shizuru also). But other than that, for the most it made sense to me that the other heroines don't feature in each route.

Errr... no, for plot reasons, I hardly see possible to see everyone in the same route all the time. It wouldn't make sense at all otherwise.

I'm not aware of any plotholes within the Kotori route itself. The only inconsistency I know of involving Kotori/Kotarou is one that exists even after clearing the entire game. (which is in the list of the unanswered questions/plotholes in Rewrite) Would you be able to list out those you've seen so far?

EDIT: I'm not convinced the writers would be prejudiced against specific characters. It's just that the plot didn't need them during that specific heroine route

Maybe I thought too much into this, but I felt Chihaya should have most definitely appeared in Akane's route.
Spoiler for Akane's Route:
I will take back my previous statement about writer bias. It's just reading the heroine routes and thinking about what happens in Terra route, I felt Romeo could have expanded the story with some other characters.

I sure love them inconsistencies. Why is a retail game this unpolished? It's terrible that this was allowed to happen.

None of it is really that important, just horribly egregious.
Spoiler for Kotori route:

Rewrite clearly had next to no QC work or editing done on it at all and could have been far better than it actually is if any sort of attention had been paid to those things.

Thanks for responding.
Like I said, they're not really the biggest of deals and I liked the route in spite of them. It's just that they emphasize how... unfinished the game feels to me. Maybe the purported "good routes" will be much better, I don't know.
I kind of wish we'd gotten a rerelease instead of a fandisc, the latter of which, from what I've heard, also feels fairly unfinished in certain instances. It's rather sad.

I finished Chihaya's route today and I can see why some people call her route the Sakuya route
Spoiler for thoughts and questions:

Now that I have the longest route out of the way, I'll be tackling Shizuru's route.

Spoiler for Response to your Spoiler:

Yeah, I agree about the part of Sakuya. It should have been called Sakuya's route instead of Chihaya. Still, it was enjoyable. Loved Kotarou's iteraction with Sakuya and Chihaya.

This game is sure making me lose A LOT of sleep for it having such a large cast of likable characters.

So far I've finished Chihaya's, Akane's, Kotori's, and Shizuru's route. I'm not really in a hurry to begin Lucia's route since I'm not fond of violent girls, but I have so much momentum going right now that I just might go for it.

Spoiler for Chihaya route opinion:



Spoiler for Akane's route opinion + Very minor part referring to Chihaya's route:


Spoiler for Kotori's route opinion:



Spoiler for Shizuru route opinion:


Whew... that took a long time.

BTW, does anyone else think this game has a serious lack of CGs and special effects for the battles? Key should learn from TypeMoon.

It's hard for me to pick which my favorite heroine is. It's most likely Akane, she is just oh so pwetty. My rankings probably goes like this.

1. Akane , 2. Chihaya/Shizuru , 3. Kotori/Lucia

Although, Lucia is still unknown to me, I very highly doubt I will put in the 2nd place area. Her appearance, personality, and voice don't really do anything for me. But I do like how she always plays the tsukkomi role with Kotarou when making fun of Chihaya being a mecha. Also, I like it when her voice goes really high pitch when screaming lol.

EDIT: Sorry, I was going to point out something about all of Harvest Story's routes when I realized none were talking about Moon or Terra yet. One thing I can vaguely say is: they are indeed "after stories" in the general sense but in another sense they aren't...

I just finished Lucia's route and Jesus Christ was it ever good, especially after the first three I played. Pretty much everything I could have wanted from a route in this game.
I hope Akane's is as enjoyable because I'm already so satisfied that I really don't want to play it.
Scratch that it was equally amazing just in a completely different way. My love for this game is now genuine instead of ironic.

Right? I especially liked
Spoiler for Lucia route. Also a bit of Higurashi.:


And that's an awesome MAD indeed! I'll post one of my favourites too~ again though, spoilers for every route.
