At least two scenes would lose what impact they do have if you weren't forced to pick yourself.

Is this playable without a walkthrough or is it like other Key VNs?

You only really need to know three things:

- Akane's route is locked until you complete Chihaya's route;
- Shizuru's route is locked until you complete Kotori's route;
- To enter a girl's route simply act like a stalker and ALWAYS pick choices that favour them.

If all you care is the story then no walkthrough is needed. It's actually easier than LB!

However, there's a bonus route that you'll need a walkthrough to reach since you have to complete all the quests (though like the Muscle Route in LB, it's just a comical extra).

Also, it's recommended to play Kotori first and Akane last.

Played them all, and I can say it's not really needed to play Akane last. But you MUST play Kotori first, or you won't get a lot of what's going on with the world in Akane's route.

Well, I neither played it last, but it's true that doing so breaks less the story flow.

The atmosphere and tone of Akane's route is far more similar to the true routes than any other route, and is probably the best of the heroine routes, so I'd definitely recommend that you play it last.
I can't imagine not playing it last, actually.

Kotori > Lucia > Shizuru > Chihaya > Akane

Best play order IMHO

I went Kotori --> Chihaya --> Shizuru --> Lucia --> Akane. That's the best balance in my opinion.

I was one of those guys tricked by the order of heroines shown in the gallery and OP.

So I did,
Kotori > Chihaya > Akane > Shizuru > Lucia

Don't ask me why I did Lucia last, just don't...

But yeah, Akane is better be the last route because of the atmosphere.

Oh I didn't follow my previous order...that was just the order I thought would give the best experience (due to exposition of characters and information from one route that can be used in others). For example, Kotori and Akane should always be first and last respectively, but I also believe you should go Shizuru and Lucia before Sakuya (mostly because of the Guardian involvement and exposition).

I went
Kotori > Shizuru > Sakuya > Lucia > Akane
Would have gone Akane > Shizuru > Kotori > Lucia > Sakuya but then I found out about having to unlock the first two...and was given the advice of leaving Akane for last.

And yes, there is no real Chihaya Route...just a Sakuya Route with a Chihaya side-plot :x

Well, my logic is that you should play the routes where Shizuru and Chihaya aren't particularly interesting characters before the one where they are, as it does a great deal to redeem them.

Taking the first time player mindset and the overall plot rather than each girl's individual plots into account, this is my logic for that order pick:

Kotori is the best intro to the overall plot, Shizuru and Sakuya are best played back-to-back. I suppose playing it second to last would be alright too (I did it) but I still feel it would be better after Kotori's.

I wish I could actually play it after finishing Terra, so I can have my happy end
