Writer’s Observe: That is an Grownup Visible Novel for 18+ solely. The evaluate is probably NSFW, though steps are made to stop that, and all hyperlinks are Adults Solely. The scenes featured are solely straight and principally vanilla.
The phrase that I stored on coming again to, over and once more, when enjoying If You Love Me, Then Say So! was “competent”. It’s not a phrase I exploit fairly often in a evaluation as a result of it might undoubtedly reduce each methods. However for a recreation like this, I feel that phrase is apropos. MangaGamer’s current Eroge Visible Novel and Courting Sim is definitely a reliable recreation in that it succeeds at what it units out to do. However it additionally by no means actually rises above that or turns into something memorable. That isn’t essentially a nasty factor, however set your expectations accordingly, and also you may even find yourself liking it greater than I did.
The primary character, Souta, is unseen and voiceless (as is widespread in most Eroge of this sort). Additionally the overused trope of the character being a beta male is in full impact. Nevertheless, they did play with that stereotype a bit in that Souta considers himself too pathetic to even be a beta, extra of a delta or perhaps a gamma. Additionally the ladies round him, particularly his greatest pal, always level out how badly of a beta he’s and have a humorousness about it. The opposite approach they play with the trope slightly is your complete premise of the sport. This recreation is extra of a courting sim than most Eroge are. There are elements of this story and recreation design that could possibly be thought-about virtually an actual life tutorial for beta males in Japan. Because the title suggests, the crux of the sport mechanically revolves round spending a number of time with a woman of your selection and figuring out the suitable time to “confess” to her. The apple fairy that appears to assume it’s a love fairy is absolutely the one fantastical aspect to the sport, aside from so many attractive ladies having a crush on the identical pathetic man on the similar time.
There’s a calendar that exhibits main upcoming occasions, resembling holidays or faculty journeys, however most of your selections will occur on the after-school time administration display. It’s there that you’ll determine which women you’ll work together with for that day. Initially you’ll solely have the ability to select a few them, however whenever you develop hooked up to extra women, the teams will develop extra numerous. Inside these particular person occasions additionally, you will have commonplace Visible Novel choice occasions that may assist a woman develop kind of keen on you as properly. Sadly you’ll be able to’t simply go all in on one woman, most occasions won’t repopulate when you’ve achieved them as soon as. And typically an occasion with one other woman totally will open up one thing new with the one you’re after. If that sounds a bit complicated, you’re heading in the right direction, sadly you possibly can miss many occasions even in a full playthrough solely choosing the identical woman time and again. I went by means of the sport many occasions and there are nonetheless an entire lot of CG scenes that I’ve by no means seen and I do not know of easy methods to unlock. So in case you are OCD/Autistic like I’m, that may be a supply of frustration.
Often (with just a few exceptions) you’ll attain the weekend and see the display above. The primary main function of this menu is to have your unreliable fairy decide whether or not the woman of your selection is open to a relationship with the “Love Fortune” choice. Basically it could possibly’t inform you whether or not the woman will say sure or not, however it might inform you if there’s a probability that they’ll. The opposite main function of the weekend menu is the “Confess” choice. When you confess and the woman of your selection agrees to be your girlfriend, you’ll enter the final third of the sport. The courting recreation utilizing After Faculty Time Administration represents concerning the first two-thirds of the sport, and the final third is definitely courting that woman. I also needs to point out that each one Grownup Content material is relegated to after you’re formally courting a woman. In truth, there’s even a credit scene within the interval, virtually like they’re two separate video games. Cupid Flowers are simply used to set the fame of a woman to a set degree and are solely helpful after your first playthrough. Telephone is used to barely improve fame with a woman of your selection and Sleep is whenever you need to simply do nothing however cross time.
The most effective good friend, sickly woman, loli, catgirl, and fashionable woman tropes are all right here in full impact. However thankfully it’s not all solely bland and freed from any surprises. For example, your completely scorching greatest good friend Yuki has in all probability the foulest mouth of any VN woman I’ve ever encountered. She is a font of soiled jokes that’s fairly spectacular, and was one of many few issues that may stay memorable to me after this recreation. The lolita can also be a bit fascinating as a result of Souta had already dated her briefly up to now, so she has a little bit of an ex-girlfriend factor going for her, even when she appears far much less mature than everybody else. However past that she continues to be straightforward to anger and a little bit of a child, as you’d anticipate from the trope. The character design and voice work for all the women can also be good however not nice. Yuki has Grownup scenes which are rather less vanilla than the others, however as I stated earlier than, I haven’t been capable of unlock each scene but.
Contemplating their prominence within the artwork of the sport, you may assume that Rinka and Chiho are the 2 foremost women of the sport. You could be disenchanted to study that you simply can’t date both of them till a minimum of your first time by way of the sport. Chiho is the cat woman, and you’ll meet her briefly throughout your first time via the sport, however she shall be slightly troublesome to attempt to date after you have gone by means of the sport as soon as. Rinka is seen on TV early within the recreation, however she is principally absent your first time via. And even when you’ll be able to date her it was extraordinarily troublesome for me to get that relationship to work. I don’t thoughts having some uncommon courting state of affairs to be in a recreation, however it’s unusual to function the artwork so prominently when she is so hidden. It additionally doesn’t assist with the frustration that she might be probably the most memorable of all of the 5 women which you could date.
I’ve to reiterate which you can solely date 5 of the women within the recreation. The rationale I need to make it clear is as a result of my largest frustration with the sport was that I couldn’t date Maya, regardless that she options very prominently within the story. The extraordinarily shy good friend of Yuki can’t be dated both, nor can your sadistic membership president. All of those women are developed sufficient and have fascinating sufficient artwork designs that it looks like they merely ran out of time or funds so as to add them to your courting pool. Maya was the true tragedy for me, due to all the women I favored her character probably the most. However actually I might have loved courting any of these aspect women.
The localization and translation was excellent, as we now have come to anticipate from MangaGamer. They have been capable of combine in each Japanese and American colloquialisms to good impact, including each character to the women and a few a lot wanted humor. Truthfully with out the humor within the translation I might have favored the sport quite a bit much less, it might have made the sport boring as an alternative of simply competent. The music was general very bland, nevertheless it wasn’t dangerous. It’s one the place I simply turned it off for past three or four playthroughs and put alone music. There have been a pair stand out songs, notably in humorous one off sequences which are troublesome to succeed in within the story. However for probably the most half all of it ran collectively. As you’ll be able to inform from the artwork design, that’s one thing that’s widespread to the sport general. Good briefly sequences, however fairly bland general.
I don’t need to come off too destructive, which is why I attempted to reiterate that competent isn’t essentially a nasty factor. This recreation isn’t dangerous or buggy or damaged in any method. It’s simply easy and bit unremarkable. It’s an fascinating concept to make the main target a lot on the confession tutorial and courting sim fashion. And in the long run, you’ll be able to spend an excellent many hours making an attempt to unlock all the varied CG scenes that you simply can’t attain in a single playthrough. For my first time by means of the sport it took round 10 hours, however I’ve simply spent at the least three to five occasions that looking for all of the myriad routes to unlock the remainder of the scenes. Does that justify the $44.95 price ticket? That may actually depend upon how a lot you want the women. It will have been so much simpler for me to advocate if these different women have been dateable, particularly Maya, nevertheless it’s nonetheless a big recreation for an Eroge Visible Novel. There are higher examples of the style on the market, however that doesn’t take away from this title, which at a minimal is only a good recreation.
