Visual elements – are absolutely stunning the background are smooth, while gloomy colors are being put to use to set up the overall creepy atmosphere.
Event CG are extremely detailed, the CG alone have the ability to depict the overall environment.
SD art of the characters are cute and sprites are detailed.

Audio elements – are PERFECT soundtracks used, fits in perfectly into the creepy atmosphere, and honestly it made me felt a chill down my spine, yes I honestly felt scared when playing this because of the creepy music. I loved the part where you start up the game and you are immediately greeted with an atmospheric and soothing music with a girl seemed that seems to be Mayumi somewhat drowning these 2 things the menu music and Mayumi drowning compliments with each other so well together.
There is no voice acting in this visual novel regardless despite not having any voice actors it still manages to strike fear into the reader hearts with just soundtracks and backgrounds that goes hand in hand together.
