Ichigo Sato – Main Story Review

2013-11-13 21.31.25(Well, that’s definitely not one I hear every day.  And why does everyone from Dreamy Days keep comparing MC to a pig? Refer to Haruki’s post here for another example.)

Basic Story Premise: As you adjust to life back in your hometown, you find yourself spending a lot of time at the Ichigo residence… especially after your room above the Cafe unexpectedly becomes uninhabitable, and Ichigo lets you stay with his family instead.  It doesn’t take long for you to notice the strained relationship Ichy has with his family.  He also seems dissatisfied with himself, his family’s shop, and your hometown.  What is the real reason behind Ichy’s unhappiness?  Will you be able to help bring some more laughter into his life?  As the two of you spend more and more time together, your relationship becomes unclear.  Will Ichigo ever be honest about how he feels about you?  Or will someone else swoop in and steal you from him…?

Haruki Tanemura – Main Story Review

2013-10-11 00.21.05(Say what now? You sure have a way with words.)

Basic Story Premise:  You’ve returned to your hometown after moving away 10 years ago.  You find yourself drawn to Haruki, the sweet boy from your childhood.  He helps you adjust to your new high school and even protects you from a few bullies.  (Although, the fact that you are being bullied is totally his fault because you end up being bullied by jealous girls who are his fans — think of Lute from the Knights series.)  You start falling in love with Haruki but feel conflicted because you do not want to ruin your friendship if he does not feel the same way about you.  And to make things more complicated, you start to notice that Ichigo, Haruki’s best friend, might like you.  Will you finally get the courage to tell Haru how you feel?  And what will you do about Ichigo?  Does Haru even reciprocate your feelings? All this and more in next week’s episode— Hold on.  This isn’t a tv show (although, this story definitely felt like an asian melodrama).

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