Mystic Messenger Christmas DLC Walkthrough – Jumin’s Route

JUMIN’S ROUTE – Christmas DLC Walkthrough

Overview : A day late but I wasn’t able to play Jumin’s that time, sorry about that. Anyway, here’s his walkthrough. Which seems to be the first to be put up it seems…? Not sure. Anyways, I don’t think I have too much typos (I hope – I apologize if there are). Also, I used up so many phone credits but Jumin would barely even answer the phone! I don’t know if it’s because of me playing straight through but eh. (≧д≦ヾ)

Please READ first :

  • Do not combine with other walkthroughs. You have to use only this walkthrough from start to finish for the Christmas DLC or I can’t guarantee that you will get the good ending.
  • There may be mistakes in what I typed but it shouldn’t be so severe that it’d be hard to understand. I’ll fix it later on so please bear with me and just ignore them for now.
  • I binge played or did the entire route straight through from 12:46 AM to somewhere around 6+ AM. I don’t play real time or follow the actual times. I’ve never played that way. I pay for it in HGs. It only cost 50 HG total to open up 2 days worth of chats so I did not want to wait around. Please keep this in mind. It’s why I marked times in maroon to let you guys know what time it was for me when I was playing it.
  • I’ve confirmed that phone call times MAY shift around. You can no longer rely on walkthroughs 100% to make or get the calls (perhaps maybe except for the ones that only happen right after the chat). I don’t want to be held responsible regarding phone calls.
  • As Cheritz has mentioned in their release post of the Christmas DLC, some chat, phone, text answers or options may differ from person to person. This, like the phone call times are things I cannot control if it’s randomized. Just do your best to pick a similar kind of answer as what I’ve indicated there and you should be okay.
  • This is just for Jumin‘s route. I’ve done Zen‘s already though in the previous post. Seven’s will be done the day after.

Obviously, since this is a walkthrough, I will mark the content as potential SPOILERS. Please do not click on the “more” link if you do not want to be spoiled. Likewise, if you visit this page without the link and you see other stuff right below this, close the page immediately!

More under the cut.

Spoilers : YES.

Mystic Messenger Christmas DLC Walkthrough – Zen’s Route

ZEN’S ROUTE – Christmas DLC Walkthrough

Overview : So here it is! 😀 Finished Zen’s Christmas DLC route yesterday and I was dying so I made quite a bit of mistakes here and there… haha…. Sorry about that. I tried to fix what I could find. Umm, I unfortunately forgot to list the areas where the story branches off. I believe there were 3 in total? Or was it 2…? I seriously can’t remember! I was only able to write the last one in right before the Christmas event.

Supposedly my route should have gone from Zen > Yoosung > Jumin > Jaehee then 707. But since I’m impatient or I am not sure if I want to spend on too much hourglasses to play, I will most likely only do Zen > Jumin then 707. Just giving you guys a heads up.

Purchasing PC Otome Games with Benefits from Amazon Japan (WARNING!)

I purchased RE:BIRTHDAY Song, a shinigami kareshi (Soul Reaper or Death god boyfriend) themed Otome game. I heard it was going to have a patch soon so I thought, hey! Why not buy some more Otome games so I can keep supporting the industry? So off I went and checked the game if it was at Amazon JP as the game is old and I’d rather get it fast.

Anyways, while I was looking through the listings… there was a Regular Edition, First Press Limited Edition and First Press Limited Edition with Amazon Tokutens (benefits, in other words).

During that time though, I was kinda out of it since I looked at the listing at 6AM and just took a peek at the Regular Edition and the First Press LE with Amazon benefits. I was like OH WHY NOT~ How about I get the LE which has more shit and get the set of 2 large bromides too!

This was what the LE was supposed to come with :

 

★初回限定版
1通常版ゲームソフト
2設定資料集
3ドラマCD『恋する死神』
ゲームで結ばれたキャラクターとの甘いひとときを描いたドラマCD。

Amazon Original Tokuten :

★Amazonオリジナル特典
CGスチルを使用した2Lサイズの大判ブロマイドセット!

————————

English Translation courtesy of Google Translate :

★ First Press Limited Edition
1 Normal Version Game Software
2 Setting information collection
3 Drama CD “The Death God of Death”
A drama CD that depicts a sweet moment with a character connected by a game.

★ Amazon Original Benefit
Large format bromide set of 2 L size using CG stills!

 

Anyways, this package was kinda cursed from the get go lol. I’ve had problems with the shipping address Amazon JP sent it as (AGAIN, their fault for constantly typing in the wrong address even though all they have to do is check my damn account for the right address) and problems with DHL. It was nothing major but it was still annoying to deal with.

Anyways, once that got fixed – all I had to do was wait for my package. Finally, it arrived some time ago. I opened it in a hurry and I was like… huh? Is.. this really it? Are you serious?? This tiny ass box? I had to cross check the sticker code on the outer plastic packaging and made sure this really was the Limited Edition game that I ordered.

 

 

And then it dawned on me that the 1, 2 and 3 numbers on that description is not that I was getting 3 Drama CDs, 1 Game CD and 2 booklets! I was very tempted to bash my head against the wall (don’t worry, just an exaggeration haha) for not looking at it in Japanese first THEN got it translated on Google. Anyway, I was like okay – fair enough…. but.. where the hell’s my supposed “Large format bromide set of 2 L size using CG stills!” Amazon original benefits?!

I contacted Customer Service to let them know this and so they told me it would take up to 5 business days to investigate this issue apparently. So I was like okay.. wtv. They got back to me only today to let me know that apparently, the one who packed my parcel took it upon themselves and removed the bromides…! LOL ‘Cos apparentlyyy they can’t ship the bromides internationally or some BS. If they’re not allowed to ship it internationally, then why the hell are you putting this up for sale for International Customers to purchase??

Next time, please put a hold on the damn order and ASK YOUR CUSTOMER if they still want the effin’ item if something happens to be missing! If they had told me this, I could have purchased the LE without the original Amazon benefits for half the price! YES! HALF THE PRICE….! I paid around 5,000 Yen more to get that damn LE + benefits which is over $50 USD!! *cries* _(」∠ 、ン、)_ Though to be honest, I didn’t even know that the 4,800 Yen price tag was for the LE. I thought it was for the basic game… or seriously, I have no idea why I didn’t check all the listings okay! It’s hidden and you have to click on each price to see what it’s for. Normally the lowest price is just for the game so I didn’t bother looking at it I guess…. I was tired okay?! ;3; ahaha.. I’m not THAT desperate to get bromides for that much more of course…. but, they didn’t need to know that.

So they were like.. I’m sorry for the inconvenience!~ But how about we give you a 1,000 Yen coupon then!!~ And seriously, I was this close to saying something like, “(Smile) Oh my!~~ A 1,000 Yen coupon…? Awwww… Well! You shouldn’t have!~~ Well in that case, how about you take that coupon and shove it up your– (censored)”.

Anyways… it seems like they gave me a choice of : The coupon OR if I want the bromides, I’d have to get it sent domestically within Japan. I have no choice but to obviously get it sent to Tenso. So… now I have to pay even more money to get this to me. Arggg!!

TL;DR for this is that DON’T purchase anything from AmazonJP that includes “Amazon Original Benefits” unless you seriously don’t mind risking that you might potentially NOT receive it. You should always check the other listings first and only buy it as a last resort if there’s absolutely nowhere else you can buy it from. Heck, even used & most likely even complete sets at Yahoo!Japan are starting to sound way more appealing to me despite the wait now.

Overview : For the first volume of this series in Occultic Lovers, we have a brash and apparently lazy exorcist. One who thinks everything is troublesome (does that ring any bells for anybody? heh), but still saves the heroine from certain death right from the get go. She was trying to save a person from getting hit by an oncoming train but was surprised to find out that the train went straight through them and they were completely unharmed. Vengeful spirits abound in this drama CD and it’s up to Shizuki to protect the heroine from all this. However, he’s made her into his ‘tool’ as punishment for letting it escape and she now has to help him every time he receives an assignment from the Bureau of Onmyou.

Drama CD Translations Schedule

As I may have (or have not) mentioned it in other posts, but I was planning to share English translations on this blog. I’ve been looking for one more translator to have a more steady stream of updates and was thankfully able to find one. Hopefully things will be more on schedule now. 😀 Lately I’ve been getting into Drama CDs a lot more than I have ever expected to. I can’t believe it was only last August that I was anxious if I was even going to get into Drama CDs at all.

AND… as you may or may not have noticed, I’ve somewhat stopped almost any activity that had anything to do with Otome Games. Maybe Mystic Messenger broke me? Haha! Anyway, all Drama CD updates will be here : Drama CD Schedule. Here’s a list of CDs that I do have : Drama CD Collection. And here’s the master list to the Translations : Translations List. It will be separated by Seiyuu or Voice Actor. I think I’ll put up an About page for Drama CDs as there’s just been too much of a stigma surrounding this even though it’s been around for a very long time. I myself was one of those people who didn’t think much about them at first as well.

What could possibly be interesting about hearing people talk? Well, that’s the challenge right there, haha. What do they need to do to even keep people interested? I’ll be discussing it in the about page. (・∀・○) The link will remain inactive though until I’ve wrote it up, just in case you’re wondering why it’s not working, lol.

So here are the list of series that are definitely getting translated eventually. I am not 100% sure about the characters though as I can’t afford to get every single one commissioned. It’ll have to be ones that I find are interesting. However, if you do have any requests or suggestions, feel free to leave a comment below. I MAY consider it, no promises.

Yuugen Romantica
Yuugen Romantica Uchouten
Wakiden Ai (will not be until maybe closer to the end of the year though)
Jigoku Onsen (currently Kira’s Volume is being translated at this moment)
Tsukiyasha (currently Gento’s Volume is being translated as well)
Kuro Melancholia (probably will also be for next year)

The line-up is quite long at the moment so I’ll be updating the “Schedule” page time to time to let everyone know what else is getting translated. I will try not to jump around too many series to keep the list under control. Thank you~ ٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و

Mystic Messenger Quick Tips (NO SPOILERS)

Everything you need to know about the game if you don’t want to use any walkthroughs or detailed guides that would give away too much about the game. Please note that I am only giving out TIPS, this is not a full fledged guide, I’m obviously not going to go into so much detail. I’m only giving you enough to be able to get through it mostly on your own. You’d have to figure out the rest by yourself.~ If you want more detailed information, this is of course not the right one for you.

NOTE :

I’m sorry. I will no longer answer questions about Mystic Messenger. I’ve already answered a lot and I think most of the major ones have already been asked by someone else. Please take a look at the comments. Though be aware that some people who commented have mentioned things that are considered spoilers so read at your own risk. Thank you for visiting my journal and good luck with the game.~ Please seek help with a walkthrough if you’re having too much trouble. There’s tons online.

 


 

Hourglasses : This is in-game currency used to unlock the next day (if you don’t want to wait), deep story mode, outgoing phone calls, opening missed chats, etc. Recommended amount of hourglasses for binge playing is around 2,000~3,000. It depends how you play and if you’re using any walkthroughs or other guides. Don’t buy it all at once though as you may need less.

Gold Hearts : You can receive Gold Hearts from selecting the right answers from chatrooms or texts. You need 100 Gold Hearts to exchange it for 1 hourglass.

Colored Hearts : Each color represents one character.
Jumin Han (Purple)
Jaehee Kang (Yellow)
707 (Red)
Yoosung (Green)
Zen (Silver/Grey)

Note : I’m not crazy (and you’re not either! lol) but I do see white hearts sometimes. It’s significantly brighter than Zen’s hearts so yes, it is white for sure. Not sure what it’s for and it doesn’t seem I needed it to unlock anything? No idea, lol. Don’t worry about that too much though. I doubt Cheritz would tell me what it is though even if I asked them, lol. 。(*^▽^*)ゞ

Broken Heart : You will lose -1 affection in the color of that broken heart. Look at the border carefully and you can see whose heart was broken. Sometimes, you may need to break a character’s heart to get affection for your chosen route. I’ve gotten quite a few broken hearts (maybe around 1~3 per entire route and I still got the good ending) so as long as the color of that broken heart is not the person you need affection from, you’re all good. Don’t worry about it too much. Just don’t overdo it of course.

Guest E-mails : You know you got the right answer if the tiny arrows (those 3 arrows below the guest’s avatar or icon) turn green. There are 3 because you will be replying 3 times and you need to get them all correctly if you’d like to be able to successfully invite them to your party. Open their 4th e-mail and it will be marked as “completed”. If you failed, the small arrows under the guest’s avatar will turn into an orange arrow instead of green.

Guest Invitations : I recommend you to at least have 20 confirmed guests to get a high ranking when you finish the route. Also, if you check your guest’s albums and read their summary, you can get 1 free hourglass for reading.

Guest E-mail Failed and Completed Invitation Status : From experience, I received a Green colored “Completed” status on the 3rd response and it seems they still went to the party. You would know if you got ALL the answers right if the Completed message is Blue. If it is Red, obviously you have failed inviting the guest. Failed will be in Grey and it will appear when you get the first response wrong.

Endings : There’s 1 Good and 2~3 Bad endings. I’ve never done the bad endings but I assume that as long as you are able to invite at least 20 guests (I heard 16 confirmed guests were alright too, but I haven’t confirmed that myself) and you reach the day of the party – I think it’s usually a good indicator that you are getting the good ending. There’s a different ending if you are not able to invite enough guests unfortunately.

After Story : These will unlock when you finish the good ending of a route. It is meant to be read after the day of the party and is the epilogue of that route.

Secret 01 & Secret 02 : Read this when you finish the entire game’s (hopefully you listened and played 707 last, lol) good endings. This is meant to be the true ending and it will explain and answer all the major questions you may have had throughout the game.


 

This should be able to help you get the good endings without the use of any walkthroughs. Please take note that you need to be careful of using other guides in conjunction with this one. My tips may not work well with other ones.

Short Character Guide :

 

zeennn_img_7877

Zen – He’s the easiest to handle. Just be nice, pump him with even more compliments and bloat his ego even more, lol! Of course, don’t invite any cat-related guests. Always take Zen’s side whenever it involves Jumin. As for Jaehee, she gets very protective of Zen’s career. It may get a bit grating but just hang in there. Be firm that you do know what you’re doing and you can handle your own relationship with Zen, but DO NOT be mean. Do not keep accusing her that she’s just jealous all the time. I think I only said it once or twice at most that she seems to be jealous. After that, I chose options that would keep the peace and not split up the group. Don’t act all nasty or like a crazed fan as well, lol. Invite all musical-related, artistic or actor groups to the party.

 

IdsfehMG_9885

Yoosung – You need to take Yoosung’s side all the time. He hates V so you have to use your discretion though and not go overboard with hurling insults at V. Try to still keep the peace within the group. Which means you will need to keep telling Yoosung to calm down and be a bit more rational about things. “Keeping the peace within the group” is a must in every single route actually. Do not act bossy with Yoosung at all – let him decide for himself. He’s a huge Masochist and it would be really bad if he starts listening to you about everything. The biggest hurdle he has to overcome is to stop depending on others and be too hung up about the past. His bad gaming habits may get a bit annoying but just try to be patient and be supportive. This goes with all issues within his route. Also, be sure to draw a line between yourself and his other object of interest. You are unlike anyone else in this world and you should not be compared.

 

IMG_981sdfas2

Jumin – Be nice and LOVE CATS, as if that wasn’t obvious enough, haha. Keep taking his side and ignore Zen’s pleas. I know it’s tempting to escape but don’t unless you’re planning to get a bad end. Be extremely supportive, patient and help him through the route. Invite all cat-related groups. Scold 707 for “abusing” Elizabeth the 3rd. Say nice things about his dad. Flatter him every chance you get even if it seems ridiculous. Don’t act like a gold digger though. Be careful ‘cos even if you pick those options, it still gives you hearts. Be supportive, but don’t let him walk all over you either if he starts to cross the line (you’ll know what I mean when you get to Day 6 or 7). Never leave him or the apartment without his say so.

 

IMG_98934sdf9

Jaehee – Take Jaehee’s side every single time. Teach her that the world is not just about “working” and that it’s absolutely wrong to think that she has no choice or say in anything. Help her build her confidence. Be mean to Jumin and tell him off whenever he is being overbearing. Her route is pretty easy I think. Just try to keep the peace and be a nice girl. Don’t choose things that could split up the group. Encourage her when she starts showing interest in other things.

 

IMasfasfG_9847

707  – Just choose answers that seem nonsensical when you first start the game. Always take his side. Don’t tell him that you really can’t understand him as that would break his heart. Let him know that you’re interested in him everytime he jokes around about you becoming his girlfriend. Be nice. Actually listen to what he’s trying to say and analyze his words. It takes a while for him to open up and remove his mask so you need to be patient. You have to keep reassuring him of how much you care, love, acknowledge and appreciate all the work he does for the RFA. Invite all the guests that seem really weird or crazy that he himself recommends you to invite, lol. He loves cats so again, invite those guests. Reassure him that there’s nothing wrong with having different sides to him (not just the fun-loving side) and that you’re willing to accept him no matter what. Don’t do anything that will alienate and destroy relationships between characters. He is a bit more complex actually but don’t lose sight of the goal. Balance your answers and don’t be overly negative towards anyone else. You can choose a couple of options like that but not too much.

 


 

Okay. I know that the tips I gave may make sense to ME but not to others. But! If you have any questions or if there’s anything you don’t understand, please ask me in the comments below. There’s really no point being nasty and insulting. It’s absolutely pointless and unhelpful. How about you just tell me what I’m missing or if there’s anything that doesn’t make any sense. Then I can probably edit this entry to make it clearer or explain it further. I’m looking at you! ヽ(  ̄д ̄;)ノ You know who you are.

Mystic Messenger Route Recommendations [NO SPOILERS]

NOTE :

I’m sorry. I will no longer answer questions about Mystic Messenger. I’ve already answered a lot and I think most of the major ones have already been asked by someone else. Please take a look at the comments. Though be aware that some people who commented have mentioned things that are considered spoilers so read at your own risk. Thank you for visiting my journal and good luck with the game.~ Please seek help with a walkthrough if you’re having too much trouble. There’s tons online.

 


 

Hello! So you’re wondering if there’s a play order that would be perfect for this game. I normally don’t look up anyone else’s play order as normally I don’t really think it flows that well most of the time OR it doesn’t seem to matter all that much if I follow it or not. BUT! I was REALLY lucky to have played the game in the, dare I say, PERFECT play order. Yes, this is regardless of whoever you’re interested in. I think this is the best way to play this game if you care about the flow of the story.

Especially if you have the VIP package, I seriously recommend playing this game WITHOUT a walkthough. Please know though that even with the 1,000 HG that Cheritz includes in your package, it is actually not enough to finish the game if you’re planning to plough your way through or binge play (like I did). I think it’s only enough if you only wanna casually play it and unlock chats you’ve missed. Recommended amount of HGs for binge playing would be around 2,000~3,000 HGs.

You guys who bought the VIP package have enough save slots to do this without much trouble. Honestly, it really matters doing this if you want to have the FULL experience of the game. It also feels very rewarding and exciting when you’re not sure if you’re going down the right path or not – and you complete the game without anyone’s help! Just don’t forget to SAVE, SAVE and SAVE. I recommend saving at least 1 per day (or you can have more if you’re really worried) starting from Day 5. If you’re still unsure, I wrote a blog entry here with some very generalized tips on how you play each route and get the good ending without giving any spoilers (YES! That means that I will not be spoon-feeding you any answers, ok? lol). Honestly, the game is fairly simple so it’s such a waste to buy the VIP package and then you just use a walkthrough. (´・-・`) It just takes away the suspense and excitement when playing the game.

 



Route Order
: Zen > Yoosung > Jumin > Jaehee > 707

I’d like to state very short reasons as to why it needs to be played this way. NO SPOILERS! So you can be rest assured.

Zen – He is perfect to play first as he is a great introduction to the story without giving away too much. He is very friendly, outgoing and also, he has… less personality issues so whether or not you are into the more angsty stuff, it is better to play this character first to get it out of the way OR have a more pleasant experience. His narcissism may blow your mind away but there’s really more to Zen than just that. So just relax and have fun playing his route. Don’t take everything so seriously!

Yoosung – To be honest, I had a really tough time going through his route. It was pretty heavy but I seriously can’t imagine playing his route any further down the list for several reasons. Personal views aside, he is great to play 2nd WHETHER or NOT you will enjoy his route. First, is if you do end up liking him and not Zen, it would be perfect to play him after as there will be some reveals in this route – but not enough where you would lose interest in the next ones. Second, if you do end up not liking him – it is best to get his route done and out of the way at this stage. Playing him any later tbh will disrupt the flow of the story.

Jumin – I know this guy is in the deep story mode but can you believe that Jaehee’s route actually has WAY more spoilers than this guy’s?! Also, it is an ABSOLUTE MUST even if you’re going to not follow my recommendation that you NEED to play him first before Jaehee because this will ruin the character in anyone’s eyes. This route in my opinion was interesting but because of such strong kdrama elements in the end (and afterstory), I became very disappointed. Just giving you a heads up so you won’t feel the same way as I did.~ Knowing beforehand lowers the expectations, lol. ╮(─▽─)╭

Jaehee – Okay, okay. I know what you are thinking (if you’re not into friendship, yuri or girl x girl). Trust me, I thought the SAME way. What the heck is up with the friendship route?! But listen to this, this is by far the most positive route in the entire game. You NEED this fresh of breath air after the 2 heavy routes before this. I ended up putting this as my 2nd favorite route after 707’s. If you love 707, he will be around the most in this route too. I flirted with him as much as I could, ahaha. So, HAPPY DAYS!~ Also, this HAS to be played right before 707’s for 1 major reason : IT HAS THE MOST SPOILERS out of all them except for 707’s of course.

707 – I know how tempting it is, but DO NOT ever play this guy anywhere else but in the last route. He may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but storywise he has the most reveals out of all of them and definitely needs to be played last. I won’t say anymore as I want it to be a complete surprise. o((*^▽^*))o

So~ There you have it. Don’t forget to read Ending 1 and Ending 2 in that order. You need 140 HG to unlock these 2 endings. It should be able to answer all your questions you may have in these ones. If there’s anything you don’t understand about the story, feel free to send me a direct message on Twitter and I can definitely tell you my thoughts on it. Keyword : my thoughts. XD So it’s just my interpretation of what happened.

Dot Kareshi I – Densetsu no Otome

So I ordered the 3 games from Amazon.co.jp which probably cost me about $110 CAD with tax altogether? Which isn’t too bad I guess. However, I didn’t realize how short these games actually were. I did have a lot of laughs from it though and it was entertaining for about 1.5~2 hrs, lol. Didn’t really keep tabs on the time unfortunately but if I probably wanted to be quick about it – it’s definitely possible to finish it in 1.5 hrs easily. There are patches for it so I just decided to get it. Why not I guess? Support the otome game industry! ( •⌄• ू )✧ Anyways, the only problem is – I didn’t realize 50% of the value of this set purchase is actually the Drama CD. I was under the impression that the focus was more on the game but it was pretty much equally split between the game and the Drama CD so in a way it isn’t really too expensive if you think about it.

However, no one seems to have translated the Drama CD online. ಥ_ಥ So I can only understand about 15%~20% of what the characters are saying so it’s useless. huhu~ If anyone knows where I can find all the Drama CD’s translations – I would be super grateful! I tried my hand at self-translating but it was totally awful, LOL! Σ░(꒪◊꒪ )))) Even with some translating tools *sigh*. I don’t want to trouble any of my Japanese friends too to look over it. Ugh.

Anyway here’s a couple of pretty CGs from the game :

I seriously don’t know how to get rid of that return button so oh well. ┐(´-`)┌ In Dot Kareshi I ~ Densetsu no Otome, I suppose my fave would be the Magician (Mahoutsukai). He’s the first photo after the intro text, not the one near the title. Yep. He’s super hot. ヽ( ・∀・)ノ He complains a shit ton but the stuff he complains about is just so funny. All of them are perverted actually but I like how the Magician is perverted compared to the other 3 – it’s a lot more enticing to me somehow. The second favorite would be the Priest (Souryo). He’s supposedly Do-S but I don’t really see it? I mean, he has a sadistic streak and an oresama type but I don’t think it’s strong enough to be flat out called Do-S lol. Apparently there seems to be some kindness in him but he is still a corrupt priest, ahaha! I normally used to like the main guys but I don’t know whats happening lately. A lot of the otome games I’ve played – I seem to gravitate to others now. I still have my share of liking a few poster boys but it seems like they’re all cut out of one mold lately. They’re seriously just not very interesting anymore. It’s like the writers are like “Haaaa…. Poster boy? Ugh. Boring. Let’s just go with this, this and this. That’s it. Now, let’s gather around and brain storm for the other guys! Woooo!”……  ( ̄^ ̄)

Speaking of the sprites though (not the CGs). They don’t look as nice unfortunately. Not sure why. ^^;; I guess they hired someone else to make the sprites and someone else to draw the CGs? Or maybe they just like drawing angles more? I dunno, lol. In certain angles the sprites look pretty good. But face-on or head-on it’s not as great.

Anyways, I really like this CG a lot. I just love the angle and all. Also, I noticed a lot of the MCs actually have small boobs. Is it because the VNs targeted to males mostly have big ones? So in Otome Games they try to make it smaller? (・∧‐)ゞ No idea, lol. It’s not even the “in-between” size. It’s always small or huge.

Anyway! Ughhh this guy is just way too hot, LOL! And I liked the angle of the MC too. It’s actually somewhat refreshing to see a big boob-ied MC lol it’s been a very long time actually. I’m a bit tempted to make my own MC-chan and give her a boob size that’s in between. (*‿*✿) Like in between B and C cup? I don’t like overly big ones though as it messes up the type of clothing she can wear, lol. I still got the other Dot Kareshi games to go through so… I need to install the others lol. Anyhoo! ‘Til the next blog entry!~
