Very nice game! I like the music and how it makes me laugh for some reason when Kento appears and the "silly" music starts. Anyway, how far is the sequel? I would like to see/how far it is :D

LOL! The Kento music is supposed to give some light moments to the game so it isn't too "serious" and "Oh, poor me" the entire time.

As for the sequel, I'm still designing it because there are a lot of things I want to do. The first thing I want is to get rid of Aya and send her on vacation or something. She even gets on my nerves. :D

The game is good but seems to have some moments that come out of nowhere, like the therapist just coming round and just blurting out about her brother. It would make more sense for her to talk about it when she develops more of a relationship with the main character rather than out of the blue. The story also seem sot move very fast and a lot happens all at once. If it was better paced I could see this game rating higher and even maybe get noticed by some higher ups :P But as it is its ok :D Good job

Thanks for your comments!

Some people said that the game was too slow. In order to get around this, I had to make it seem like things were constantly happening, but then it seemed kind of fast.

Oh, well. What can you do?! :D

A big part of the fun with story games is how you get to interact and make choices within them. You ave a good story here, but I didn't really feel like I was a part of it. There are too many looooong spans where I have no choice about what happens. It came to the point where I felt more like I was reading a novel than playing a game.

I loved this and I want a sequel, however, in the second half, the ad glitched out on me and wouldn't go away until the end. Just a heads up.

the story is very interesting. I mean, at first is, 'what?' but it is actually nicely done. mostly on the illness. What of the causes of it, and do give hints about other things that happen in her past. and interesting to meet another character that doesn't stand being indoors. well, mostly empty buildings. Which interesting and I can see both of it possible on both of their metal illness. However, here's what I don't like. I hate, hate hate the best friend. I know, that's mostly of my own personality taste. but first I though she is okay, and find she can be cheater, or so on..but, here's what brothers me. I can see her want to help her friend set her up. and both agreeable agurements, but I hate that she doesn't seems really concern, or even worried one bit of the main character. I know low blows can happen between two best friends fight. however, I feel she push it too far, and not even one sorry? yeah yeah. and well. also I feel this is more better as a written story, then a virtual novel. I don't feel it is very interactive. I mean, virtual novels has things that chance simple talking scene, and ones that can chance a lot that happens later. however, mostly just small talking scenes really chance must of what happen next. I mean, I expected if ya don't knock on the door at the first scene, you wouldn't pick up the knife. but well yeah. Also..then the one year jump. This really disappoints me. I mean, I see reasons why. but however, automatically going to married that boy. but ya only get few interactions, ya don't get to see the full bonding or big moments. it feels a bit too simple. A bit too quick on marriage thing. like, give us sometime to get excited or not expect in the next one. a little too quick to the point on year time skip. but, though I likely read the next one. how you deal out the issues and everything, and originally. Though, the artwork is pretty nice. and the music, well, I like there's a way to mute it, and also to have something that loops. cause once the music is finish, it is completely silences, until the next scene. though saving is nice if it is very long, but since this ain't too long, it gets by with no problem. Can't wait for the next one!

SPOILER ALERT!!!

LOL! If you hated the best friend, that is the whole point! She is annoying, but Kimiko can't do anything about her because she can't leave her house and make new ones. She sees the value in her always being there, even though she's not a very good friend (but her heart really is in the right place).

As for the marriage, I really didn't want to do that, but last time I didn't and EVERYBODY complained that there wasn't a happy ending with getting married and a KISS! If it makes you feel better, they actually haven't gotten married yet and maybe they won't...
