I was going through, Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo, which was made by Akabeisoft 2, who later went on to make Devil on G-string. AND IT WAS FANTASTIC. How can I describe it? The touching moments are very touching, and in some places the crying power is almost as strong as AIR. The kickass moments are very GAR, making you cheer on the characters. And the shock of what really happenes to people who have broken the greatest laws…the absolutely mastery at which the writers had written in all the hints and pulled them together rivals that of EVER17.
BUT, the endings! They all have this weird and choppy feeling to them, placed, almost as if broken off from the main storyline, existing in another dimension (not much better that Princess Waltz). To supplement the endings, AK2 released a fandisc (Sharin no Kuni, Yuukyuu Shounen Shoujo). But, of course, that means extra money and extra years while I wait for a translation group, ANY translation group to release it!
