SPOILERS : YES | NO
I actually wasn’t intending to write anything for Hyakka Hyakurou or Nightshade because there’s already so many reviews out there for this game. However, one thing I’ve noticed consistently from different players are their views of this character, Kuroyuki.
Now, everyone has different opinions about his route but the thing is, their reasons for disliking this character is… well, incorrect. I say incorrect because while people do have differing opinions about, let’s say a person – it’s still normally quite biased and is usually based from their understanding when they start placing the character within a certain category depending on their past experience.
To be fair, I suppose – not many people want to see anything else aside from the first few things they observe. They could barely scratch the surface of what someone is really like before they start judging others. Especially if you’re the type to form SET judgments on people you just met, it can be quite hard to get any deeper when it comes to having a better understanding of what’s in front of them.
I don’t think it should ever be like that. It’s always better to be objective and to look at each thing as they are and be as separate as possible from everything else. Sure, you gain knowledge from piecing things together but a lot of the time, people’s views on things are quite clouded because they have personal opinions about said “character” or “personality”.
Of course, incorrect or not – everyone’s free to like or dislike something. I think there’s a reason why you’re reading this post as you may want to understand him more or maybe you just want to read what other people think of this character.
Full disclosure though, Kuroyuki is my favorite character from this game (as for my favorite route… I’m honestly not sure actually). I will however try to be as unbiased as I possibly can and be objective. Remember, I also do not condone the things he has done. I’ll discuss about it more under the cut.
WARNING : It is long af. I am not exaggerating!
