Is there a middle ground?

Post by te-kun » Wed Nov 16, 2011 9:19 am

You know, join the student council but be friends with Lilly and Hanako so I can serve as a intermediary between the two sides?

Not in Act 1 at least. Try it, and you'll probably not be very happy with the results.

Hisao will die, probably.

I'd guess not, since both of them take up a lot of time.

If you join the Student Council, being one of only 3 members would mean a lot of work (thus a lot of time spent with Misha/Shizune). I assume it would not leave a lot of time to hang around after school with Lily, or spend much time in the library with Hanako. To say that there will be ZERO interaction with the other girls during each route would probably be wrong though. I like to think that Hisao will be at least friendly acquaintances with everyone by the end of whichever route you choose.

Honestly, I don't mind all too much. However, what would be nice would be Hisao being conscious of his health without instantly going Emi route. I felt, in Act 1 at least, that doing what the doctor recommended pretty much meant Emi route.

Yeah, but the student council would have to deal with other students and seems like Shizune isn't very good with dealing with some of them (Emi, Rin, Lilly, Hanako...) In fact, seems like her only friend is Misha.

You forgot to add "if you know what I mean" at the end.

Except for the race with her.

Choosing to 'Go For It!' will lock you on to Emi's route instantly EXCEPT if you have chosen all pro-Shizune choices beforehand. That day, you can choose to go to lunch with either Shizune or Emi. That's the only way to be healthy and not go for Emi, it seems.

And I would also like to be friends with Hanako and Lilly after choosing Shizune, but the devs want each path to focus on the individual girls. They've said that after act 1, only two girls will get major screen time: the girl you choose, and her friend. The others would become a lot less important, but they won't be cut out completely.
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.

Cool. I didn't know that.

I guess Shicchan is alright with you taking some time off to work out as long as you give her your unflinching loyalty in every other area of your life. :roll:

Shizune isn't any good at getting along with any of the students. Her attitude is why the student council only has two members.

This may or may not have something to do with the fact that she needs a translator to translate her every thought -and Mischa does admirably at translating words if not intentions, it still generates some weirdness, barriers and alienations.

Also, I guess Shizune is too used to people doing what she wants to bother befriending them. She already gets whatever she wants from them, and most probably did not seem interesting.

Still, given the fact that she's ready to bully Hanako because her only friend is Lilly makes her come out a bit negative. Very negative, in fact.





Back fully on topic, there isn't nor there should be a middle ground. You cannot be friends with everyone, and Shizune and Lilly have probably been in conflict for quite some time. I guess Hisao can take steps to soften the conflict, but the fires will always be there. And there would be costs.

Like Shizune refusing to let Mischa join you two during *coughplaytimecough* if you dare to try to have her make amends with Lilly.
Progress : Lilly - finished (Good ending), Hanako - finished (good ending), Rin - finished (Good ending), Shizune - finished (Bad ending), Emi - Finished (good ending)

That would suck. Everybody knows that Risk is boring with only two players. :(

Indeed. Not enough satisfaction once you conquer the world and stuff.

Not to mention Shizune's probably so good at it that it's only fair if it's two on one.

I'm surprised Shizune doesn't go for Axis and Allies. It seems like she would like that more than Risk.
(20 bucks she would play as Axis, too).
