Read this thread. That'll help clear up your complaints. Anyways, I'll just give you my opinion.Natsuki wrote:I enjoyed Shizunes route, but there are a couple of things that's I'm not too crazy about.
1- Misha's problems came out of no where, she was cheery one minute and the next, bam. it would be nice if there was some short of hint there even though the problem happened way before Hisao came.
2- Shizune didn't really seem like his girlfriend at all. you would think that she would show some affection to show that she loved him, besides the sex scenes.
3- I wasn't too crazy about the nutreual(sp) ending. the picture was cute though. it also would've been nice if the ending showed them wanting to be together after highschool or something.
Also a side note, I really would've loved a Misha path. Perky people scare me, but I just love Misha. lol.
those are my problems. otherwise I really enjoyed it.
1. There were subtle hints. I haven't reread the route to check them all but I remember in Act 2 that she flinched when Hisao was learning sign language and he mentioned that maybe he wouldn't need to rely on Misha anymore. That and the hair cut in Act 3. There's probably more, but I need to replay the route to get all the nuances.
2. What they had was definitely love. It was nuanced and only implied though the tiniest of gestures (being playful with him and such.) For me, the sheer depth of it clicked after I saw the bad ending and the reasons for it. Even before that though, I could sense it. Probably through all the practice I got from analyzing Rance's nuanced character development in the comedy rape scenes. It's not your fault if you couldn't see it.
3. It's spelled neutral for future reference .
