So, just putting out my thought here. Rin was the character I kind of got obssessed with in act 1, kinda because of the fact that she was an artist (as me) and because of her personality, so naturally I wanted to finish her path first.
Oh god, my heart.
I am a man, but I won't hide the fact that I am a very sensitive man, and I cried. A lot.
I never thought, from the impression that I got of Rin in act 1, that her path would be so goddamn heartwrenching.
Also the fact that I pretty much could relate to Rin, in the fact that I have very hard for myself to put my thoughts into words (and sorta why I don't really have any friends, like Rin) and many more of her characteristics. made this more heartwrenching. My heart got destroyed when I got the bad ending, but when I got into act 4, it always felt like there was to be another bad ending, because of how the story progressed. But my heart really got destroyed the moment after Nomiya yelled at Rin and then watch her reaction and thoughts about it all... But also got kind of repaired the same moment, with the same exact scene, I guess.
All in all, I hardly doubt any of the other path will catch me and make so emotionally attached to this game as this path did. Probably because of how I could relate to Rin. Thank you Four Leaf Studios, for creating this beautiful game.
Also, kind of an side-note:
I kind of hated Nomiya from act 3 and forward, but I can't say the same for Sae, as she showed some kind of sadness, as Hisao explained it, when looking at Rin working, probably because of Nomiya's and Sae's deceased friend. It felt like Nomiya just made Rin work her ass off for the exhibition to relive his career through Rin, while Sae just thought that Rin was talented for her age, and saw no problem in letting her have an exhibition.
