Haruhito Amano – Sequel Review

2013-11-01 21.38.57

(There’s the Sheeks we know and love.)

Basic Story Premise: You and Haruhito are enjoying life as two normal humans in love.  Well, at least until Kakeru shows up one day to bring news of trouble.  Apparently, there have been several bombings by the gateway into the Demon Realm, and the demons suspect that the angels may be responsible for them.  As an individual with experience as a demon and as an angel, Haruhito may be able to help the situation before war between the two realms break out.  Who is responsible for the bombings? Will Haruhito be able to help his demon and angel friends as a mere human?  Or will he have to choose between becoming an angel or demon again?  And will that choice affect your relationship?

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and the CGs after the jump! No walk-through because both endings are available to read after you finish the story through once. 

Haruhito: Haru is the same whimsical, silly man you fell in love with during his Main Story.  (Although, I was disappointed to see that he does not sing you any more songs.)  You even get to see his jealous side which is provoked by the unabashed Satoru.  2013-11-02 00.52.14

My Opinion: If you’re a fan of Haruhito, you will most likely enjoy this sequel.  If I tried to label this story, I would have to say it’s a drama.  I thought it would be a comedy, but it’s not quite as funny as some of the other stories Voltage has created.  And as I started to get into the story, I thought it would be an action story… but it’s really not.  So there you go.  This story is more of a drama.  (Can’t really call it a romantic drama, since the two of you are already together and you don’t really have too many relationship issues.)2013-11-01 00.16.01

Right.  Love birds with less romantic issues as opposed to the “will my boyfriend become a demon or angel again” type issues.

One big complaint I have with this story is the lack of plot resolution.  Someone is bombing the area between the two realms.  And by Chapter 10… we still don’t know who it is.

Yes, that’s right.  The bombings are the main basis of the story premise.  And Kakeru and Rein make it sound like Haruhito is vital to resolving the issues between the demons and angels.  And he does help with those issues, don’t get me wrong.  But it’s like Haruhito merely placed a band-aid on the issue, and then Voltage decided to end the story right before a convenient commercial break.  We still have no idea who is behind the bombings that had both realms up in arms.

Voltage might as well have slapped a sticker on top of the final screen at the end of Chapter 10 that says, “Warning.  You must insert $3.99 to continue” because I’m assuming they will continue the bombing storyline in Haruhito’s next story.

Phew.  Ok.  Let’s move away from the fact that Voltage is trying to separate us from as much of our money as they can (Business is business, I guess?) and move on to something I did enjoy.

It is cute to watch the other demons’ excited reactions when they are reunited with Haruhito.  Even Shiki has something nice… err… something to say. 2013-11-01 21.37.52(Oh, Shiki.  You are just so pun-ny.  What happened to this side of your personality in your own sequel?)

The Endings: 2 are available, Super Happy and Happy.  The two endings are basically identical: You and Haruhito are at the Demon House celebrating.  Kakeru says that his father is thinking of awarding Haruhito for his efforts in averting a war between the demons and angels.  After talking to the other demons, the two of you check out Haruhito’s old room where Haruhito talks about how happy he is that he’s met you and how you’ve changed him for the better.   The Super Happy Ending has an extra scene at the end where you get to see Haruhito working at his human job — at a flower shop, no less! How cute is that?

And here are his 3 CGs!

  1. I had to laugh at this first CG in which the MC’s eyes that should have been there weren’t. Usually the faceless heroine doesn’t look so because the angle is never tilted directly at her face, but this is. Lol

  2. Oh man, I freaked when the “super happy ending” screen popped up. That may be the first time a Voltage game has made me go “that’s it?!”. The Haruhito stuff was totally adorable, but I was expecting some drama or some resolution to the bombing plot. I also was expecting them to forbid the mc and Haruhito from being together once he became a demon again. Ah well, Haruhito is always adorable.
