First time I played I was 'honest' with myself and got Kenji.
Ayyy Kenji Squad :lol: I got him too when I did an honest "9 years later" replay of the game this year

I was so deep in the 'she is too shy to go outside' mindset that I didn't even check the guide and chose to stay inside.
Good.

Playing the game with a guide to tell you what choices to pick takes away all the fun.

Ironically, I managed to get all the good endings of the actual routes on the first try (without a guide) with the exception of Rin's.

For Lilly, I tried to just play honestly (i.e. as I would normally answer), but luckily, I'm an honest person and her route requires you to be honest.

I remember discovering that, after getting Lilly's neutral ending, I had made only one incorrect choice that landed me there. It would have saved me the heartbreak if I had only chosen differently there, but of course I didn't know at the time. However, I suppose it's better to have gotten the neutral ending first so I could experience the much better good ending last and finish her route on a high note.

As for the others, I don't remember having trouble with them, save for a few choices on Rin's route, perhaps.

Meanwhile I failed at Shizune's route :lol:

The first time I fell into the newbie trap and got Emi.
Then the second time, I went and ended up doing Rin's route to the end.
I didn't understand why people said her choices were so confusing, until I later saw the paths. I was just glad I managed to feel it out, that was when my life changed.

Yeah, to get Rin blind you kinda have to be indecisive and non-committal, which carries over well into her route considering Hisao's mind.

By the by, I never got how so many people got caught by the 'Comfort' choice in Shizune's route. Always felt it pretty natural what it implied. When I came to it I was surprised the game would give me such a clear 'this is a bad idea' choice.

for my first run I also just went with whatever choices I felt I'd make in that situation, and ended up with Emi as well.

while Lilly ended up being my favourite girl, and my favourite route, I feel like in a real life scenario Emi would probably be a better, healthier relationship for me. the way I see it, Lilly is like the fairytale romance, while Emi is the slightly more 'realistic' option (but good nonetheless, she is still my second favourite!)

Perhaps some people did not want to understand.
