Yes, the H’s are capitalized for a reason. There are so many H scenes squeezed in such short routes! I was expecting at least some story in it… I suppose the protagonist is too busy assembling his harem to participate in a story.
The common route is divided into 8 chapters with an emphasis on the newly promoted heroines Aiko, Kiyomi, Michiko, and Yuuki. There are a couple of chapters about the new student council, 1 about the miko, 1 about a test, 1 about the DIY club, and 3 about the school festival. Two things in the common route bothered me. I would much rather see the drama, like emo kids, leave out of it since I had enough of that in the original Koisora. And the common route is so dang long! Why don’t they learn from the mistake they made in the original excessively long common route. They just had to repeat their mistake.
The routes are very short compared to the common route, with 3 chapters each compared to 8. That wouldn’t be so bad, if the routes aren’t filled with H scenes one after the other. If you skip all of the them, there is barely anything left for you to read. There are 5 of them in the short span of 3 chapters. I can’t help but feel that the routes are crafted purely for the ecchi with some drama tacked onto it.
The prevalence of the H scenes are especially apparent in Aiko’s and Mikoto’s routes. After the confession scene in Aiko’s route, it is practically non-stop H scenes. Aiko gets a little bit scary near the end if you ask me. But she is still an adorable kouhai/imouto two in one. I LOL-ed at the Aiko ending – the power of friendship and love combined!
The same goes for Mikoto’s route, outside of the the more dramatic portion. The conflict was solved so easily it was ridiculous, and they still didn’t solve the main problem left from Koisora. As the result, all the drama feels really stupid. Again, they should leave that out and let the couple ichaicha a lot more. And no, I don’t mean the ecchi kind.
Despite the overabundance of ecchi, I’m finding it nice to revisit the characters from Koisora. And of course, to see more of Sera.
There seems to be a graduation ending that is unlocked after you complete all the routes, so I”ll be skimming through the H scenes until I get to that.
