Lilly's route was pleasantly long (also carried most feels and I still cry every time I hear the music box melody).
Rin's route was awkwardly long (But in a awkward in a good way, just like Rin).


Funny that above statements (save for the brackets) can also apply to a penis.
They can be applied....

Shizune's penis was painfully long.
Lilly's penis was pleasantly long.
Rin's penis was awkwardly long.


But maybe the shouldn't.

Agreed, agreed, a dozen times over.

Once I finally unlocked it, Shizune's route was very disappointing to me. Not so much in that it wasn't detailed or well-written - it was, no doubt - but that past Act 1, you only get one choice-box, and everything hinges on it. With the exception of one implausibly-pivotal decision, everything about her route is totally non-interactive. For such a complex character, this lack of variation in her storyline is a serious letdown. Especially since a big part of the common appeal of the VN genre is getting to see how your choices effect how the story plays out. Taking away basically all interactivity and then suddenly having everything abruptly depend on a single choice is very jarring and takes away a huge chunk of the immersion.

Shizune's is the only route I've never bother to play more than twice, and the second time was only to see the other ending for completionist's sake.

I would have thought Rin becuase of the random blocks of outburst she occasionally threw out. She was kind of a mix of Hanako panic attack and Shizune's explinations.

I'm not sure if Hanako's route has the most text, in fact people have said it's the shortest both chronologically and text wise, but to me it feels the longest. The longest route for anyone will be the route where you sit there and talk to the screen the most. :lol: I've only ever played through all the other girls' routes once. As much as I want to gain more insight from replays, I just can't pull myself away from Hanako's story. I'm trying to share it with as many people as I can.

I'd say Rin's is the longest. Oh, I hardly think it's boring or anything, in fact her route is my favorite, just...it felt the longest to me. Still amazing though. :) ^_^

Rin's is definitely the longest, but also one of the most interesting. I felt like Emi's was the shortest, especially if you turn the adult content off.

Rin's is definitely the longest...
No, it's not.
By line count Emi's is the longest, by word count it is Shizune's.
Rin ranks second either way.
Emi > Misha > Hanako > Lilly > Rin > Shizune

Rin's just feels long because of the occasional word-filled screen and the nonstop incomprehensibleness.

I wasn't really basing my statement on fact, just my experience. =P It took me the longest play-time wise, to say the least. It's interesting to see the actual lengths of each though.
