Started to play Garnet Cradle! I am playing it slowly because of exam and project, so I am not that far into the game. For those who do not know about Garnet Cradle, you can refer to my previous post for a summary of the story and the characters.
I love every visual aspects of the game: from the backgrounds, the characters to the menu and even the control buttons. They are all so stunningly beautiful. Moreover, the smoothing music is another luxury that you don’t get in many Otome games. I am so in love with it that I will definitely purchase the soundtrack! The story progresses slowly: I have been playing for two hours or so and the protagonist has just entered Mifutafu. Even with the sheer amount of text, the game is not boring at all and I am enjoying every bits of it, but basic Japanese is essential to appreciate it fully. Onto the rant!
At the beginning, Rihito-senpai congratulates the protagonist and Touya for being elected as the princess and the prince of the play. Rihito appears to be a nice person, sometimes he can be a little naughty and teases the protagonist. However I believe that he is your typical nice guy on the outside, not so nice on the inside. He is just too approachable and his niceness seems a little fake at times. He reminds me sooo much of Yunoki-senpai from La corda d’oro!
Touya appears unaware of that fact that he is elected as the prince. I nearly fell for him because I like intelligent, cool looking guys with GLASSES, and he has a BOOK. Double attack for me! Luckily I resisted thus plan to go for Sou still holds ;;^^.
Sou saves the protagonist from the annoying press in this CG. Both he and his twin sister Tsubaki serve the protagonist as her protectors. They treat each other as rivals and fight over the protagonist a lot. For example, Sou’s sister believes that he would attack the protagonist and ruin her purity. Sou fights back by making an oath that he would not harass the protagonist. I read that the CGs in his path are the most 18+ in the whole game.. Isn’t that going back on your oath Sou-kun XDD;;?
Saariya threatening the protagonist. Forced her to admit that she is the holy Miko otherwise she would be killed. I didn’t take much notice of his threat: I was staring at his eyes and his wet shirt too much to care ;;^^.
Another warning to the protagonist. This CG looks dodgy and gives people a wrong idea right? He is not threatening her in that way, he just wants her to be quiet and stay there because she wants to escape and find Tsubaki.
A CG for the male readers. I don’t think there are any… nontheless isn’t the protagonist pretty here?
Finally, more wet Saariya and that half-seen through shirt of his (o*_*)o. From what I have played so far, I am loving the game and will definitely play more. If you are playing Garnet Cradle like me, how are you finding it (please no spoilers)?
