I think the adaptation would benefit the best with vibrant background designs, like how P.A. Works handled the art for Hanasaku Iroha. Then add in some music from Elements Garden, and we're all set for imagery.

Now that leaves the seiyuu.

Doubtful. Everyone who contributed to the story -- some of whom may've dropped out of the project early in development -- would have to agree on the contract and how to split the revenue. Unless 4LS had the foresight to agree in advance how to handle such a situation, I think it'd be a major cluster-frak waiting to happen.

Kugimiya Rie as Shizune.

Cheers.
This debate has been a tired one I've participated on in other forums. Suffice it to say, I disagree, with the primary reason being the timeframe difference of Hanako's route and Lily's route (Hanako's route doesn't even cover Lily's return).

But I'm not engaging in that again since I've exhausted my words on that a long while ago

That's mean, guys.

If somebody's not getting the joke, a hint: Shizune's a deaf-mute.

___________

Anyway, been spending some time with this game in-between other, more important life-things (+ the Olympics). As always, I'm so late to the party that it went from cool to lame to hipster and back again.

So far I've finished, chronologically, four routes: Emi, Lilly, Shizune, Rin. Haven't bothered with the bad endings yet. Fell in love with Hanako at first sight (who didn't? YOU MONSTER) so figured I'll save her for last, though after Lilly's route I'm not sure that was a very good idea.

Impressions:

Spoiler for Emi's route:

Spoiler for Lilly's route:

Spoiler for Shizune's route:

Spoiler for Rin's route:


Now onto Hanako's route. Hopefully Hisao can make the princess happy.

____________

Speaking of which, I have one question: who is Kenji's ex? I had the strangest impression that it was Yuuko, and I still have little idea why I thought so.

Good luck. I liked Hanako's route the most, even more so than Lilly's. Shizune bored me to tears and Rin just managed to make me feel lonely and depressed.

"Cheers," you say.

Tissues - Check.
Disposal - Check.
Little Sister - Bribed (don't ask).
Door - Locked.

Privacy level assessment - boys don't cry, it didn't happen if no one sees it happen.

Bring it on.

Yeah, well, it didn't happen.

Of course it didn't.

What? What do you mean "red eyes"? I was watching the Olympics all day! I was tired! Aren't you tired? Stop looking at me!

Spoiler for Hanako's route impression:


Now to wonder if I could be bothered to get the 100% completion. Will I really be missing much?

A friend of mine played this game and asked if there was a route that was a combination of the five main routes. (You can imagine why he asked that ) I told him there wasn't (to his disappointment), but it made me wonder what kind of story that would be like. Some ideas I had were: Hisao trying to patch things up between Shizune and Lilly; Rin and Hanako striking up an... odd friendship; and Kenji thinking that Hisao is spying on his female friends and encourages him to infiltrate the feminist organization.

I'm not planing on writing a fanfic, but I find it amusing to think about.

The integration of visual novel routes.... heh, something anime adaptation story teams have to contend with.

When someone can do it well, its fantastic.... most of the time it is a trainwreck

In fact, the route was kinda sad in that there was no way to make Misha happy. Play it, and eventually she cut her lovely frilly hair (Japanese for BROKEN HEART GIRL HERE). And then there's the one choice to sleep with her, which will make her even more unhappy. I mean, guys? I know she's a lesbian and you don't like lesbians in your VN, but come on. I'm not expecting to break the lez and turn her straight or some other homophobic "good end" (in fact I'd be very angry), but can't the girl be, like, happy somehow? Platonic Misha route? Please? Will and Grace? Heterosexual life bros? Hisao can be with Kenji if he must.
I was following your assesment of Shizune's route up until I read this. You obviously don't understand modern social issues if you feel Misha deserves happiness more just because she's gay. My sympathy for her stemmed from the fact that she was a good person without a mean-spirited bone in her body who was entirely devoted to helping her friends. I don't know how you concluded the authors hate lesbians or that her somehow pairing up with Hisao would have made them homophobic. I actually prefer the bad end would have ended up with the two of them together simply because of their chemistry, but it was more realistic to play it out as a lose-lose scenario, which is what tends to happen in the case of an unrequited love. The next best thing is not good enough. That was what Hisao was to Misha, and that was why she could never be happy with anyone but Shizune.

I was reading through everyone's comments on the various routes and I just wonder if reading this will change their perspectives a little.

After waiting 3 years for it to be finally completed....All I got to say it was more than worth the wait. Lilly was by far my most favorite (kinda wish I did her last and not first). Everyone else was good too, but Lilly stole the game for me.

It didn't really modify my perspectives but wow, what an extensive writeup.

Okay, so I just downloaded this VN (it has been 1 years from the date of release, eh ?)
How do you think ? Disability girls and eroge scenes ? Wow

The graphic looks nice so far, but I stopped playing on the very start, because....it's kinda typical bishoujo VN ? (when the main protagonist is a male, and the story is focus on pursuing certain girl's path). Right now I want to read something different other than standard otome/bishoujo VN

Maybe I'll put my thoughts later, when I feel like continuing to read

It is a 'standard pick-the-girl VN' but I think its very well written by any standard for a VN. The 'freaky for some' aspect fades pretty quickly as you learn each girl's story - it does a fair job of humanizing them and the male lead isn't a stupid sexist jerk as we see too often in the average VN.

The choice path and flags are also tricky/interesting - I'd recommend a walkthrough map if you just want to read the stories.
