G-sen_04The Story 9/10

You will play as Azai Kyousuke, the adoptive son of a yakuza boss you will see the world through his eyes as he puts up a facade of being a “rich person with taste” to keep his classmates away from him. He often enjoys listening to Bach and “working” part-time for his stepfather. But when a beautiful girl named Usami Haru appears in town along with an international criminal known as “Maou,” they bring with them their cat-and-mouse game of plotting and intrigue.

G-sen_13Visual and Music elements 9/10

Visual Elements
Backgrounds and CGs are beautiful and detailed very well done overall very smooth looking sprites and they look really cute when i first saw Miwa Tsubaki sprite with the cute “Ahoge” above her head my first impression was “wow she looks really cute”. There is also time based character color calibration which is a really cool addition because it makes the character have Evening and Night color immersion which adds to the overall atmosphere of the visual novel.

Music
Music in the menu give that creepy feeling when you play in the dark I loved the overall creepy atmosphere it manages to set and I loved the way they can turn the creepy and dark atmosphere into a cheery and cute atmosphere all with the use of music that goes along with the gloomy and bright colors being put to use. Music that is being used in the opening movie is just “epic”no matter how many times you listen to it. Overall a very job well done for the music elements.

-2015-nov-6-005Interface and Features

They have features like having song titles appearing at the top right of the screen when a new song plays with the composer name
They also have the feature to change specific characters text colors which not many Visual Novel have this feature which I find this a nice feature to have because sometimes the words colors may blend into the background and thus making it very hard to read them.

To sum up 9/10

I would definitely recommend this visual novel to anyone because this visual novel overall would appeal to most people and would recommend anyone that likes mystery/thriller genre with investigations going on all around in the visual novel

Thank you sekai project for providing me a review key for this wonderful visual novel. My favorite character in the Visual Novel is Shirtori Mizuha mainly reason is because she has white hair, and I really love white hair.

A thing to note is that when you buy the visual novel itself there will be no voice acting at all which but if you do want it to have voice acting it will be at a price of $19.99 which I find this a good move by Sekai Project because it enables people who read Visual Novels without voice acting to get them at a cheaper price, however I do recommend getting the voices for the Visual Novel because I have always played Visual Novel with voices but this factor alone it all depends on individual tastes.
