I'm smack back in the middle of the game (done Keisuke, Rin and half way through Shiki's routes) and I'm so full of feels and I need to speak about it.

This game has held up so well over time and I'm enjoying it so much. Keisuke's route ripped my heart heart out

Spoiler
But
I'm so happy it ended well and that hurts too. Just so many feels for my little cinnamon roll who got pushed over the edge
.

I'm surprised by

Spoiler
Shiki's route so far
just because it has just been a total smut fest compared to the other routes
Its also very clear as I do more of the game that Akira is a massive masochist.

I dont know what else to say at the moment. I'm just a ball of emotion

I'm playing through it, too. Only finished all of Keisuke's routes and I think one other? It's been awhile. I started the game just before the pandemic started and then I wasn't really wasn't ready to have my heart ripped out, so I put it aside.

I have to agree with you

about Keisuke's route.
the bad ends ripped my heart out, and then I was so darn happy with that good ending!! And it wasn't even a "they both survive and don't hate each other" end, they ended up together... Surprisingly sweet for Nitro+Chiral, really. I guess it makes sense, they put those boys through hell.

I'm looking forward Rin and Shiki. I liked what I saw of Rin's character, and Shiki gets talked up a bit and has a nice character design... Once I get through those parts, I can share my thoughts, and read the other spoiler. 😀

I got the good ending first and didn’t want to go back and get the bad endings.

Emphasising on the good end
and going off what you said about them going through hell, I like that it tied into the ending too. They were happy together but also have blanked that period of thier lives completely and refuse to acknowledge it. That broke my heart ;_;

I really enjoyed Rin’s route but the reason why is a massive secret =3

I’ve just finished 2 of Shiki’s 3 routes and I don’t think I have ever seen such contrasting endings in a VN ever. The fact that the decisions are made seconds between each other is wild. Comparing if it to night and day still doesn’t feel like a big enough contrast.

On to Motomi’s route next ^^. I only used a guide to get the bad endings and was trying to get his naturally. When Shiki appeared I was so angry because I didn’t wanted to do him fourth xD

All in all, I’m actually surprised by just how many plot points have managed to stay secret all this time. There’s bits and pieces that have seeped out but even some quite big reveals are still kept under lock and key and that’s quite an accomplishment for a title that has been around for so long and is so well known.

Omg yes!

Spoiler
talking about Keisuke's endings
I did the bad ends first, so the fact that they pointedly don't talk about all the awful stuff wasn't as noticeable to me? I think I was just "oh thank goodness, they're both alive and together and they're even pretty happy??? That's as happy an ending as I can ask for in a Nitro+Chiral game!"

I've taken to doing bad ends first, because getting the good end after a bad end is usually a nice palate cleanser. I should play some today, while I have the time and there's not a huge thunderstorm making the power flicker... (The weather has been a tad wild here.)
