Music and Visual Elements 9/10
Eden shows a huge focus on characters designs and art, while at the same time using camera angles in the Visual Novel and its not like your typical Visual Novel you find everyday, where you get to see sprites that are usually static and only half of their body being shown being placed into a background. Instead it feels like the characters them self come to live it felt like watching an anime. I absolutely love the soundtracks being used in Eden it perfectly fits and it belongs in the situation and the environment. The backgrounds and CGs were extremely beautiful and detailed the smooth colors are very pleasing to the eyes
To sum up 8.5/10
Do not give this a miss because this is a very good visual novel in terms of all the elements of what a visual novel should have. [Art, Music, Story, Characters]
