In all honesty I really don't get the hype surrounding this game. I've played a few routes on it (Emi, Hanako and Rin) getting both good endings and bad but I didn't get any 'feels' from it, sure i felt bad for the girls in question but the protagonist was just too un-relatable and in all honesty seemed a bit of a jerk. It felt like as soon as he got to know any one of he automatically fell in love despite the fact he hardly knew them and immediately took any chance he got to get into their pants, despite the fact that they were clearly vulnerable and probably incapable of making an informed decision about what they were about to do with him. It just felt like the whole point was that these girls are damaged and couldn't possibly go on with their lives without him and that he's some hero that needs to save them from themselves and protect them. The last time i checked, girls, even disabled ones, would find this really offensive. To be honest, if this is the game with provides so many feels for you guys, I'm just going to go ahead and assume that all other dating sims must be shallower than a puddle of water because this one barely registers emotionally.

There is indeed a problem when it comes to relating yourself to Hisao. A good change would be the option to choose your name yourself at the start of the game... I really wonder why the developers didn't think of that.

I disagree that these girls were clearly vulnerable and incapable of making an informed decision. Why incapable of making a decision? They're physical disabilities, not mental disabilities, you know.

I know that, but it seems like Hisao only ever made a move on them when they were at their most vulnerable, a good example being Rin where he finds her in such a state and hist first instinct is to do that to her, not to mention Hanako....

Hmm I don't know, I haven't played Hanako and Rin because both of their characters just didn't appeal to me...

You should also keep in mind that every different girl arc was written by a completely different person. (Indeed, they all are people from 4LS, but still)

In the other three arcs that I díd play, it seemed more like the girls were taking advantage of Hisao and his friendlessness. But there's nothing wrong with that, ofcourse, haha

that's fair enough i guess, I accidentally ended up on their routes tbh I just finished Lilly's after having to go and look for how to even get on to her path. It seems like out of the ones I've played she's the only one who has actually consented to any ...activities... without being under immense emotional distress

I guess these types of games just aren't for me really

At least you tried playing it, I respect that. and if you played 3 routes, you can't exactly say you hated it, haha;)

it's true, I didn't hate it but I certainly didn't love it either. It just didn't give me the emotionally connectivity that I expected from all the hype and in some cases just made me feel like a bad person :/

but each to their own i guess
