Hi all, it’s been so long since I posted lol. I just got kinda lazy. Anyway, I finally found the game cartridge after half a year so I was able to finish this horrid game. I’m just gonna write a short review for this, has some spoilers.
I went into this game knowing it’d be full of disgusting things. But I’m still amazed at the shit they came up with. First of all, the concept of the plot is interesting: this group of kids have gods inside them and got transported to another world and just some crazy stuff happens. They’re trying to go back to their own world before it’s too late. The Japanese mythology is great. But the abuse shit is just so 😨😨 Lots of eyebrow scrunching and eye widening. If it was R18, I bet Rejet would have gone wild with the rape and abuse. Since it’s Cero D, there’s a limit to what they can show so thankfully no images but the text is still pretty horrid. This game also has weak character development and romance. I feel bad for the shit the characters went through but I could not feel attached to any of them. I think this is the first game where I don’t have a favorite character.
Ahh Masato, the kind of onii-chan I never asked for. He’s so disgusting but at some point I just found his ridiculousness funny. Like bottling her nail clippings and licking her hair in the shower. He has dissociative identity disorder but they try to brush it off as ‘not the real Masato’ as if it’s supposed to make everything better. That just makes me roll my eyes because they’re trying to ignore his problems. Maybe this is a reflection of how Japanese society generally deals with mental illness. Throughout his route, Haruka tries to run away from Masato but at the end, she suddenly decides to accept his love and it just makes no sense. Stockholm syndrome I guess? But it’s still such a bs way to shoehorn in the romance.
Also the art is kinda bad. Lots of inconsistent CGs where characters look like someone else. They might have gotten someone else to draw them. But anyway, I’m not a fan of the artist’s style. Look at these longass torsos and skinny arms.
Man you’d think they have more muscles for being athletes and all.
Here’s a CG of Neji where he looks really weird. What is up with his skin color?? It’s supposed to be slightly tanned but he’s pink here. Ace is not looking like himself either.
I know this game has nothing on the many galge/eroge that are much more extreme. I wouldn’t recommend this game because aside the abuse and dreadfulness, it’s not that great. I wonder if Rejet was trying to be extra for the sake of being extra. But go ahead and give it a try if you’re curious.
