Eh, I thought her arc was a bit painful to get through from a reader's standpoint.

But, if you look at it from an aesthetical perspective, then hell yes, Rin's arc as a whole contains some of the best writing I've seen so far in a visual novel. It's clever, it's thoughtful and the way it flows is fantastic, considering the fact that she's a character who can't really express herself the way she wants to. It's awkward yet endearing at the same time.

I was impressed with Aura's writing and I hope I'll have the pleasure to read something else written by him in the (near) future.
Kinda how I felt as well--there's some really amazing prose, some awesome moments and lines, but I had a hard time pushing through the route despite that. I guess it's just that the whole thing felt kind of unhealthy for both Rin and Hisao, and also that the central theme about how people can never truly understand each other means that we never really have the sense of cathartic discovery of breaking through Rin's mysteries the way we do with characters like Hanako or Emi. Rin is almost as opaque at the end as she is at the beginning.

Mostly because it makes not a lick of sense.
That makes perfect sense though.
Agreed. She needs to go somewhere familiar, so she doesn't get lost in the unfamiliar. I don't see that as a particularly odd concept.
"She"? Hisao says that.

Cant remember the exact line but Hisao thinking Misha coming into the classroom with the grace of a rhino (something like that).

It's: "She [Hanako] jumps a little when Misha crashes into the room with the elegance of a rhino."

I couldn't help but giggle at that one

'I need to use your window.'

That line and all that followed can only truly be appreciated if you've ever been barged in on.

I thank the Nine that I cannot truly appreciate it, then.

"We don't speak again after that."
Possibly the most final of final endings in the game. Simple soul-crushing at its best.

The finality of that hit me hard even after getting the good ending first.

Finality indeed. This one's for you, Spunky. Merry Christmas.

Eh

The whole experience felt a bit forced to me. It's as if Hisao just had a revelation saying "Well ok I really need to be the biggest a-hole I can possibly be with this one."

You're just channelling George Lucas: "The... force... is... the biggest a-hole... with this one." :D

Huh.

Merry Christmas to you too, brythain. That was a wonderful read, and I think the massive cynic in me just melted a little.
