Anyway, I’ve went through Chinami and Asuho’s paths in Hoshizora no memoria, and it wasn’t bad.
Chinami’s conflict is resolved quite early. This feels very jarring considering the length of the common path. I got the distinct feeling that they wrote a path and then went “Wait, this is a eroge, we should just throw in some shallow romance and ero scenes after the plot!” There was absolutely no point in having a romance there. They should have either got rid of it entirely or actually put in some effort in developing the characters. However, the story itself, revolving around Chinami’s past and the concept of family, was absorbing and touching.
Asuho’s path basically revolved around some pretty silly misunderstandings which were resolved in a somewhat…odd way. Throughout the story, I was a bit creeped out by how the story is mirroring real life, so that kind of overshadowed the everything else. I’d say that overall, the drama was decent, but not fantastic.
A year and a half ago, I received a comment asking me to review Flyable heart. However, there were two obstacles involved: first, it wasn’t translated into English or Chinese, and second, it wasn’t even released yet. Whether it be luckily or unluckily, a Chinese patch was released today, so I played a bit of it. I had went through Nanatsuiro drops before, and was expecting the same gushy sweet diabetics-inducting atmosphere. While there was plenty of pink all around, the beginning of the story was definitely more focused on comedy. And I thought it was hilarious. Maxx (the robot above) is made of win. Another thing that I noticed was the nice production values and the plethora of effects. It was especially nice since I haven’t had a game like this for a few months. Anyway, I have absolutely no expectation for the plot, but I get the feeling that I’m going to enjoy this.
