When I started playing this game I found out the sad news that minori. actually went out of business a year ago. While I wasn’t a fan of them constantly blocking foreigners from their site, I did like a few of their games. With steam having their usual season sale I decided to pick up both the EF games (first tale and latter tale) and eden so I will be playing and reviewing them back to back. The story focuses on various couples rather than the standard protag + heroines format. We begin our tale with the heroine Yuuko meeting up with her friend Yuu and talking about what happened in “the past”. Just a warning, I did NOT enjoy this game so if you’re a huge fan I don’t recommend reading this.
It’s been 8 years and Quin Rose has gone bankrupt but I ran out of games and I realized I never played the FD of this game so here we are! Aileen reached her money goal and thought she was free but her mom owned her ass by telling her the entire time she was gathering money they had secretly had royal guards making sure nobody attacked her. They tell her that her position as Gilkhatar’s princess is not going to change and by her not becoming the ruler, someone else will and will almost certainly try to kill her to get her out of “way”. Her parents decide to go on a long honeymoon (aka run away from their responsibilities) with no plans to return and tell her to “do as she pleases” but she knows she can’t just abandon her kingdom. On top of that we get a new character, Jared, who is her arranged fiance and continuously cockblocks every single route. Also now we get a name and face for Aileen’s ex boyfriend Theodore.
So in hopes of some missing otome game action from the last game, I decided to play the (extremely short) FD. Unlike most FDs I’ve ever played, this one doesn’t take place AFTER the previous game – it takes place in BETWEEN chapters 6-8 of the last game during the summer. They knew they dun goof’ed on the bullshit ending in the last game so there was no real way to do an after story FD…so yea time to shove the missing otome events right!? And so for this reason everyone including the substances is all horned up for Akira and fights over her the entire time. 😂
Our superwoman genius Akira graduated from college at a young age and at the age of 17 becomes a teacher/commander for the 6th
Evangelion LAG unit of Substance x Human robo fighters. But also everything is like a giant musical pun because all the robos aka substances, are named after guitar brands (Gibson, Les Paul, Epiphone etc) and all the guys in this unit are part of a rock band called Odd I’s (a pun on the fact that they have odd colored eyes when they gattai with their robots). 😂 They fight against the evil “red” planet but things start to get difficult when it’s revealed that the substances are all originally from that red planet and have been experimented on/controlled by humans. Aka it’s basically the plot of Evangelion 😂😂.
