No, Kazusa, it is NOT customary in Canada to eat doughnuts drenched in maple syrup, no matter how much you want it to be.
This is a story that definitely warrants a second play through. First, you can appreciate things again. Second, there are new scenes that only appear after you’ve cleared the game once (you don’t have to start from the beginning, saves still work). The more I look at the story, the more I support Kazusa. She’d better have a good comeback after the time skip. The writer always puts more effort into the “True” heroines (whom doesn’t have to be the “main” heroine, as seen with Rikako in Parfait chocolat second brew). And I’m thoroughly optimistic that Kazusa’s route in in the Closing chapter will be fantastic.
