Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
The story reminds me so much of Strobe Edge. It is painfully beautiful and sweet. Butterflies in the stomach awesome. It really shows how complicated relationships can be in high school. Also how hard it is to balance friendship and romance in opposite sex relationships. Betrayal between friends of both sexes. Having friends that are prettier or more plain. Being plain.
It feels so realistic that it is really easy to bond with certain characters. Beautiful. I’m looking forward to seeing how everything turns out. Hopefully for the better. -fingers crossed-
Final Rating: 4/5
