Otomate can’t seem to put their cow to pasture so they pooped out another Norn9 game. Unfortunately they’re completely out of ideas and grasping for straws so what better way to do this then to use different writers and artists and just do a bootleg mashup of Last Era!? Not much of a review ahead and mostly just rambles about the game.
Greetings again, buta-ettes! Oink if ya hear me! (::deafening grunts split the earth asunder and blot out the sun::). Today we will be reviewing Norn9 (and unfortunately this is the all ages version, not the R18 version Norn69), and trigger warning here but…it kinda sucked. I’ll also toss in an overall spoiler warning in here because while I won’t be doing summaries of the routes, I will be discussing plot points in a spoiler way in order to complain about them.
This is the fandisk for Norn9 that I’ve been dragging on for a month due to getting new apartments, new furniture and new computers. Fortunately it’s also because oddly enough it had a lot of content for a fandisk. (The value of the content may vary by person but I personally enjoyed it.) There’s 4 sections, Prelude – the intro of how everyone came on the ship, Fuga – the original game digest from the guy’s POV, Concerto – the continuing after story and Fantasia – a bonus omake with everyone turning into chibi characters. Spoilers ahead so skip to my final thoughts to avoid them as usual!
It’s year 2085, and our heroine Sendou Futaba has just transferred to Akizuki high school. On her first day though, she’s tricked into joining the superpower club. The club leader, Azuma, desperate to bring the club back to life, is given an ultimatum by the principal: win this year’s national championship or the club will be shut down forever! The club has been suspended due to an assault incident at a competition 2 years ago and with all the other members leaving, they are in dire need of recruits. Due to a personal incident in the past, Futaba just wanted to hide her superpowers and attend school like an average student….unlike her mother who is one of the most powerful superpower users in the world. Angry that she was fooled to join the club, Futaba wants to ragequit but they beg her to stick around for at least the preliminary round. It’s not until then, that she’s forced to reveal her embarrassing power: Trigger Kiss – a power which allows Futaba to power up her allies by kissing them. (*´∀｀)
