As you can see, the blog underwent a major redesign, hopefully for the better! Feel free to vent your frustrations regarding the new theme in the comments below, or of course you can declare your eternal love for it as well. My eroge progress has been really slow lately, thanks to the godforsaken papers I had to write. But now that the papers are done with, it’s time for me to jump on the Hatsuyuki Sakura bandwagon! But before that, I want to wrap things up a bit so I can jump into it headfirst without worrying about my post count or the lack thereof. And this is where this Dousei LoverAble impression, and Kaho, come in.
I’m here this time as well XD. Having played the game as well I couldn’t resist giving my 2cents here and there.
Dousei LoverAble, being a fan disk, has you choosing your route right from the menu where you can also choose your favorite hairstyle out of 3 for the heroine. As for the theme for the game, the routes are all about living together as you can no doubt see from the name. Being the imocon that I am, I went for Kaho’s route first without a second thought. Her route reminds me of the reason I became an imocon in the first place – I couldn’t be melted down any further by the sheer imouto-moe of Kaho. My brain became a complete moe mush by the time I was done with the route, in a very good way.
I always assumed that when the term siscon was used, that the sister in question was an imouto. Anyway, the system for this game was well made. The BGMs and menus were all basically the same as the original game. Is this good? Personally I liked this, because the consistency made it feel like I was still playing Lover Able. Adding in a 3rd hairstyle was a typical, but nice touch to the game.
You can never be too sure, for there are the rare ane-con out there. It’s a fan disk, so it’s basically more of the same game. Which is to say, non-stop ichaicha for everyone!
For the route itself, there really isn’t much to talk about, except Kaho is still her old self we have known and loved. Her route is set 1 year after the original story, as Kaho starts attending the same school as him and wastes no time sticking to him and ichaicha everywhere while totally not caring about the views/drools of their classmates. In short, if you loved the original Kaho route, you’ll for sure love this one. Even if you didn’t play the original one, play this one anyway. Kaho is one of my favorite imouto for a reason, and it’s not only because of the meido uniform she wears for one of the scenes.
Kaho’s afterstory and original route wastes no time on the whole incest thing and moves straight to the ichaicha, which is great XD.
Really? Kaho, with her infinite moe, only gets a single sentence from you? I should make it a requirement that all imoutos shall, from now on, have the longest sections written about them.
You summed things up pretty nicely =3
Tsugumi’s route is the second route I played. In the beginning, she is like the perfect housewife as shown above. However, as nice as that sounds, that managed to bored me so much that I actually went and finished Twinkle ☆ Crusaders –Passion Star Stream-‘s main Illear/Lullshare route before coming back and finishing this. Fortunately, the situation soon changed for the better as Tsugumi’s jealousy kicks in to near yandere levels and comforting in the form of gracious amounts of ichaicha and H ensues.
I highly agree with Aedes on the whole perfect housewife thing. Things were just way too plain. The jealously in the route was very nice, however it’s short lived. I guess they felt that there was enough of that in the last game >__>
I think they might have decided it was too much when the knife came out in a spectacular yandere fashion, if only just for a moment.
Her character, while not as dear to my heart as Kaho, is nevertheless hilarious especially combined with her equally hilarious best friend whose name I don’t remember but is the loli who is unable to stand straight. But since the game is a FD, the side characters have very little importance so I feel the introduction of one in this route didn’t add much to the story. On a second thought, maybe it did, in the form of jealousy fuel. She is also the kind of partner I would love to have, as she PLAYS EROGE WITH ME.
What’s this story you speak of…?
Oh, did I say story? I meant the ecchi. There is no point adding a side character if there isn’t going to be any 3P scenes.
Sadly, I have only been able to complete Kaho’s and Tsugumi’s routes before I got busy, and then Hatsuyuki Sakura is released so the chance of me finishing this is even slimmer now. But I’ll try to at least finish Satsuki’s route though, as I hear it’s quite good. And now I shall pass the bat to Aero who will tell you more about the remaining heroines if he choose to, while I go complete my life via Hatsuyuki Sakura.
Well you’re stuck with me from here on =3, unless Aedes throws in some random comments XD. I’ll start with Nanako. Like the heroines above, Nanako’s route starts off with you two already living together. The route is set sometime after you have graduated, and you have started working at your uncles restaurant a lot more. HOWEVER, Nanako now works at another restaurant, so the character interaction in this route feels somewhat less compared to the other heroines.
You get a lot of scenes showing the two before and after work, which is pretty boring. There was a nice highlight in this route where Nanako gets very drunk, which causes her to show her extremely childish and jealous side. Besides that scene, the most of the route was pretty boring, with the main focus being on work. A little too realistic for my tastes.
I see Nanako still hasn’t changed. Must be her oppai’s fault.
Chinatsu’s route and Satsuki’s route start off with you two NOT living together. In Chinatsu’s route you slip in the proposal to live together while teasing her, which she more than happily accepts. Similar to Nanako, this route take’s place sometime after you two have graduated and Chinatsu no longer works at your uncles restaurant. She occasionally helps out the restaurant, which allows for a bit more development.
I hope you’re talking about the H kind of development. I mean, they’re the only kind that matters in this sort of story right?
I never really liked Chinatsu. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate her. It’s just that as a heroine she is very plain. After you add in a bit of her perfect housewife attribute to the mix, things aren’t really that memorable. Her super in love mode is probably her strongest point. She loves to “show off’ your relationship and even keeps a blog about it =3
Oh, she even blogs about the developments?? Dang she is bold!
Very bold ^^. Sensei and Kaho seem to frequent the blog as well =p
Like Chinatsu, you aren’t living with Satsuki from the very start. However, the steps that lead up to you two living together are a lot more hilarious. The unique thing about Satsuki’s route is that you move in to her house with her parents. In the other routes the couple live together in an apartment. Another note to mention, in this route you both have not graduated from high school.
Couple living alone in an apartment? Doesn’t take a genius to figure out what goes on in there.
Satsuki’s route was excellent in the comedy factor, which is a big driving factor for this kinda game. Satsuki’s parents with their super love standards when it comes to relationships creates lots of LOL moments to this route. The addition of you and Satsuki being ichaicha in class causes some nice moments from everyones’ favorite sensei. With a good amount of ichaicha and a serious, but nice ending, this could be my most favorite route XD.
I feel bad for the sensei. Why didn’t she get a route!?
Many others feel that pain too >__>. I do like sensei, but I would have liked a route for Mafuyu more.
I would like to make a note about the graphics for this game. To keep things SFW I won’t post up any CGs, HOWEVER I personally didn’t like the HCGs for this game. I liked the HCGs of the original game and I have a feeling that they changed the artist for this game. Though I can’t be bothered checking out if this is really the case, it’ll remain a mystery in my eyes. Another thing that bothered me was the lack of originality in the pajama CGs for 3 of the heroines. Seriously what am I doing here, spot the difference?!
Don’t think the artists changed, still ひなたもも and あめとゆき from what I see on the sites. I think their brains melted from the dangerous amount of ichaicha they’ve drawn.
If you didn’t notice from my comments, I really enjoyed the routes for Tsugumi, Kaho and Satsuki. The other two were VERY average. I found a trend in the routes that I enjoyed. The common factor is that the heroine in these routes have not graduated from high school. Maybe the other two routes were a bit too realistic for my liking? I dunno. I was originally very disappointed when I learned that Satsuki’s seiyuu changed. However, the new one maintained the same feel and did a very good job ^^. That’s all I’ve got to say about Dousei, I’m gonna go back to play Grisaia no Meikyuu XD.
Hope you all enjoyed the multicolored mess that is this post. You should be hearing about Hatsuyuki Sakura from me soon, as I’ve just got started on it. From the people who have played it, it seems that Saga Planets has out done itself again with a kami-ge of outstanding quality. Finally, let’s finish with our spokesperson for the post, Tsugumi.
