I think that's part of the beauty of the game, though. none of the paths are really alike. yeah, with Emi, you do get a pretty standard "high school romance", but it works for her - you couldn't do any other girl's story with Emi, and damn, wouldn't Emi's path feel weird with someone like Hanako as the main girl?Raiel wrote:Maybe it's also because at the beginning it felt just like a regalur "high school/college romance" (which means no romances at all and over as quick as it started). Or it could also be because of Emi's character... what she appeared as in the 1st act and and developed into later isn't just my favorite type of character (But I have to give credits to the writers and the staff. Because characters I tend to hate are usually, very well written because they manage to get me so riled up, even though they are just fictional characters XD).
but I gotta agree with you about the awesome writing and character types you don't like. normally, a character like Shizune would make me want to stop reading something, but her story was written so well that I kept going, because I had to know what happened, even if I didn't get the emotional connection with her that I did with the other girls.
