Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!! is the very colourful all-ages yuri visible novel developed by PARTICLE. Initially releasing on April of 2016 in Japan, this debut title shortly turned a noteworthy hit amongst followers of the yuri style. MangaGamer realized this and, throughout their Anime Expo panel in 2018, they introduced their plans to localize the title. Subsequently, Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!! launched for English-speaking audiences on March 14th, 2019. With the promise of a number of healthful tales delivered to life by means of sensible voice appearing and a vivid artwork type, it begs the query for these on the fence – how does it maintain up?
Usually, that is the a part of the evaluation the place I’d put you within the footwear of our protagonist and offer you an summary of your prologue. Nevertheless, I can’t actually do this with this title. That’s to say, the developer doesn’t need you to expertise it that method. Upon beginning up the sport, you’re instantly launched to all 15 women, an awesome starting. Then again, via distinct character traits and intelligent interface design, you don’t get as misplaced as you’d assume. The women converse amongst themselves as they put together for an enormous picnic on a stunning day. For clarification, the conversations vary from being reflective on days previous to outright flirty, offering an concept on what to anticipate from each couple. When the prologue scene ends, you arrive at a scene choice display in calendar type. Welcome to Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!!
There are numerous choices to think about, so let’s meet the couples. Let’s begin with the primary choice, Ayumi and Waka. Ayumi is the calm and picked up senpai, lover of all issues cute. Waka is the extraordinarily energetic and cute kouhai that’s in love with Ayumi. Above all, ever since center faculty they’ve been linked collectively, with the small interactions turning into one thing greater, Ayumi could be getting critical about Waka!
Up subsequent is the story of Ayane and Hina, two pals which might be very shut but not fairly there. Ayame is one other energetic sort, whereas Hina is a gentle and delicate cinnamon roll. Furthermore, they’ve been associates for so long as they will keep in mind and are lucky sufficient to be in the identical class for the yr! Nevertheless, Hina is taking a look at Ayame a bit in a different way as of late. Is love in bloom alongside the sakura?
The subsequent couple is Natsuki and Mio they usually supply a differing sample from the couples earlier than. As an example, whereas they could be childhood buddies since days of kindergarten, their personalities mirror a mom and daughter vibe. Natsuki is the lazy scholar council president who appears to be executed with the world. In distinction, Mio is the trustworthy sort and retains Natsuki going. Upon the arrival of the brand new yr whereas she’s on the brink of give her speech, Natsuki realizes the state of her relationship with Mio. Nevertheless, is that each one she needs it to be?
If the earlier choices weren’t smoking scorching, permit me to introduce you to Hare and Seira. For clarification, the type of scorching I’m speaking about is in emotional tensions. You see, ever since they met of their first yr of highschool, these two have a rivalry going of their research. You’ll be fast to see how bashful the 2 behave round each other. Nevertheless, you’ll additionally discover Seira is a bit joyful to have Hare round, creating the textbook definition of a tsundere. Can Seira recover from her emotional bumps and relay what she actually feels to her rival?
The subsequent couple options love between grasp and maid, Alice and Ibuki. What began out as a friendship as tight as as you may think about obtained even nearer. Briefly, Ibuki was set to maneuver away however a chance paved the best way for this highschool woman to turn into Alice’s maid, maintaining her close to. Ibuki’s affection for Alice is endless and typically shameless, and Alice is aware of this. Nevertheless, whereas not as expressive as Ibuki, Alice may be feeling one thing robust for her scholar maid. What might that feeling be?
The couple that follows takes a peculiar path, I’m speaking about Mayu and Mai. Equally, this one pairs a sensible and bashful Mayu with a sporty and fairly foolish Mai. The one distinction between this one and the others is that Mayu and Mai are sisters. The 2 have been caught like magnets since their earliest reminiscence. Consequently, it means they’ve trusted one another for lots of life situations. Thus, the event of distinctive emotions that crosses not simply the road of maybe love between two women, however between sisters as properly!
It appears odd that the variety of women doesn’t finish on a fair quantity, why is that? To reply that query, I deliver forth the route between Yuno, Tamaki and Saeka. Yuno is a future idol within the making with tons of character to point out, her greatest good friend is the disciplinary committee member with an excessively distinctive coiffure, Saeka. In her time inside the disciplinary committee, Saeka has made vital strides in her character however maybe is missing within the compassion space. The 2 have been roommates since their first yr of highschool and are nice associates. Enter Tamaki, Yuno’s lovable cousin, who’s on her approach to turning into a full-fledged instructor. The three women meet, however how their story progresses is totally as much as you, the reader.
This route presents the one set of decisions inside the recreation that matter. Briefly, you’ll determine what mixture will get paired and who will play the position of the help. Nevertheless, whereas it looks like it might be a troublesome choice to make, relaxation assured, no matter route you select will bear an exquisite fruit.
If I might describe the forged of Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!! with one phrase, it’d be colourful. Whereas there could be a number of women that share character traits, how they go about their corresponding routes is the distinction maker. As an example, within the case of Mai, who’s one of many extra energetic characters, her tone appears to shift to a calmer strategy when left alone together with her sister Mayu. In distinction, Waka’s power is what finally defines her with Ayumi.
Briefly, there are two sides to each character, and also you’ll see each within the widespread episodes and route-specific episodes. Whereas we’re on the topic, permitting the participant to deviate from a linear playstyle by way of a calendar system isn’t precisely one thing new. Actually, it’s on show inside one other well-liked MangaGamer revealed yuri title, Kindred Spirits on the Roof. The liberty to expertise the story nevertheless and everytime you need provides depth to the sport. If I’m to explain the state of affairs, it’s like enjoying an open-world recreation. Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!! provides so many fantastic routes to view that it turned troublesome to decide on a place to begin.
Returning to the matter of the 2 sides to every character, I need to acknowledge the writing and voice appearing. If I discovered something studying visible novels over the previous few years, it’s that appears can typically be deceiving. On this case, how the characters behave out and in of their route-specific tales is what captivates me. Love is an awesome feeling to the purpose the place it messes with personalities. Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!! exhibits that facet of the emotion inside each route superbly and the skilled voice appearing enhances it to the purpose the place it provides me chills.
On the subject of artwork, you actually should give a standing ovation to Sakura Miwabe. The women are lovely and are properly complimented within the utilized background arts. With all of the well-meshed colours, it actually does really feel like I’m taking a look at a rainbow. Equally, the sound staff did an excellent job. Whereas the soundtrack isn’t something to put in writing house about at first, whenever you get to very important moments within the story, one specific monitor will leap out at you, out of nowhere, and depart you feeling mesmerized.
I’ve rightfully given reward to all main areas; nevertheless, this isn’t an ideal recreation. As said earlier, the soundtrack, apart from one monitor, is forgettable. Likewise, and that is the key con, the pacing is a serious difficulty. The episodes are brief and unfold out, however maybe too unfold out and a bit too few. The endings to the routes I’ve seen have been superb however felt like I acquired there too shortly. Maybe the event I search lies inside extra widespread episodes, however I don’t assume that’s the case and can be a poor design selection. Nonetheless, nonetheless excellent brief yuri tales that depart you wanting extra.
Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!! is a must-own for followers new and previous of sentimental yuri-themed literature. The colourful and expressive forged, whereas overwhelming at first, are as lovely because the rainbow in each character and appears. The writing is as healthful because it will get, and the sounds give it life. The sport sits at a $24.99 worth, and this author believes it’s value each penny. I’ve 19.four hours performed and can probably come again so as to add extra. Thanks MangaGamer for offering us with extra yuri.
