This is the 2nd Alice series fandisk after joker. The first half features some original stories with the usual cast in Wonderland, Joker inclusive so that means we still have seasons in various places. The 2nd half is a school parody where the cast of Alice is thrown into the Symphonia Magic Academy from QR’s first game Wizard & Master. Alice transfers to the Symphonia Academy because her CHILDHOOD FRIEND Peter wants to go to the same school as her…and Alice is looking to get away from her sister out of jealousy, just like in the original story. Starting with this game, Quin Rose ditches the turn based system to give us a relaxed straight VN gameplay.
“April Season” has been bestowed on our beloved wonderland. It’s basically Wonderland being stuck in a timeloop that is April 1st aka April Fool’s. Despite being called April Season, all it means is the entire wonderland experiences different seasons based on location. Spring at the heart castle, autumn at the Hatter mansion, Winter at the Clover tower and Summer at the amusement park. This time Alice can’t visit those areas unless the Wonderland season overall matches with the season of that area. Not only that but now there’s an addition of a giant circus run by the Joker in the Door Forest since he’s the “fool” in April Fool’s. Beyond the circus lies the Joker’s prison in which lies the truth to Alice and the world from which she came from. The best part of course Julius and Gowland are back! 😀
So for reasons no other than Quin Rose wanting to do more Alice series, Alice and the wonderland gang move to the country of Clovers. The amusement park and clock tower are gone, replaced with the Clover castle and a forest which has whales swimming through it somehow. ヽ(。_゜)ノ Alice isn’t officially dating anyone but she still has memories so it’s upsetting that Julius and Gowland didn’t move with everyone. Instead she meets Nightmare’s new assistant Gray and a furry mouse in the forest( who’s Boris’ new playtoy) named Pierce. With Julius gone, Nightmare is in charge but he’s too busy coughing up blood so he’s got Gray doing all the dirty work for him. Since Nightmare’s busy running the place, he doesn’t have time to bed intrude into Alice’s dreams so instead she keeps having siscon dreams of Lorina who even in Alice’s dreams tells her to let go and move on with her life. During various periods throughout the game, everyone gathers at the Clover Castle for the assembly during which time fighting is not allowed.
And so this is the final fandisk to the Starry Sky series! ε=＼＿○ﾉ ｲﾔｯﾎｰｩ！ Aside from getting after stories with Tsubasa, Kazuki & Hayato, we also get to do some routes with Ooshirou and Shiki (who was shoved in last minute forcing this game to be delayed by almost a year.) This time they don’t waste any moment and go right into the after stories without any kind of prologue or another story at the beginning.
