Before, I had said that I was a fan of Hiiro no Kakera rather than Hakuouki. Yeah, this is true.. But now, I’m more of a fan of Clock Zero~Shuuen no Ichibyou~ rather anything else! I really loved to play it very much so that I downloaded the emu for PS2 (this is just because my PS2 have been in standby mode for so long, never to be repair)… So, I’d played from the emulator.
Hmmm, I don’t want to tell the story because this’s too amusing and really complicated to be understand just from one point of view. This game was so hard to told from someone’s perspective ‘coz it had a great story, great background, great music. Everything is just so great that I can feel glad just to have an opportunity to play this awesome story. Really, thanks Otomate to have make an awesome otome game like this! This is the first time I really loves every aspects from a game.
I just wanted to gave a description about the characters (like I usually did). Firstly, let’s tell about the hero, Kaidou Takato. He seems to be a genius child, with a mature minds. Everything he does always saves respect from others. To think of it, he was much more mature than the usual 12 years children. As Kaga Akira, he was so calm and really helpful for the troubles CZ members had. So when Kurou Nadeshiko (the heroine) meets the King (Takato), I don’t really mind it if Takato now has the calm attitude like Kaga-sensei. But behind that calm and kindness, there lies the hate for the one who makes Nadeshiko sleeps for a long time. And he said something about didn’t even care for what happened after the blowing incident resulting from his experiment. So much devil-ness over the kind personality!! It makes me choose him over the other characters in this game. About his best quote (let’s say that: “君のいない世界なんて、いらない”), I’m so much into it. I can feel his heart and deep sadness about losing Nadeshiko for 10 years. Takato has it all; the kindness, the sadness, the hatefulness, the cheerful, the hardworking, the mysterious, the sorrow, and the hatred. Otomate has gives him many stories that can tells all of his personalities. He is the one and only character that I can’t really tell what he thinks of and really hard to understands his mind. He has pretty much a frighful mind after all. But his true love for Nadeshiko makes him a kind-hearted person in the end.
Second, the childhood friend type of character, Kanou Riichirou. Typically his type, he used to always stood near Nadeshiko since childhood. Cool, mysterious, and gives a stand-alone-mind to others. His friend was just Nadeshiko at first, but after the activities from CZ, he befriended too with others (mainly Takato). Sadly, his story doesn’t much involve with the secret behind Clock Zero. The funny thing is at first, he seems strong. But after the fighting with Bishop, he looks like doesn’t have any skills of fighting. What kind of cool character of this? It really makes me a bit down. But after all, he’s the second to my fav chara in Clock Zero. It’s just the fact that his story doesn’t mean anything and ends quickly that makes me dissapointed.
Let’s come to Hanabusa Madoka. Appears as a step children to Hanabusa family, he just wants to be a good child who helps Nakaba (his step-brother) to be the number one. Nadeshiko always give him suggestion to be his real self and not to be Nakaba’s brother (in concept about being a step-brother, means he’s out of family matter). When he appears as Bishop, he always fighting with Nadeshiko and his real self about what he really thinks and what decision he shall makes. Even in the choice to save or not save Nadeshiko from the King, he must be told by Nakaba. Really a confused personality. I don’t think I like his character very much. But his fighting skill keeps him stand. Nakaba in the other world was a journalist (he knew almost every gossip in that world, almost… if he could tell that the King was Kaidou Takato). His dream is to built a shop where Nakaba can bakes cakes, also he can makes accesories.
Here is the traitor, Saionji Toranosuke. Hard to convince, always fighting, and hate to be with others. It’s because of his father (Saionji Yoshimune) who gives him hard lessons in the past. His story is…. a bit boring. Everytime, everywhere about his story is about fighting. From childhood ’till mature. But it were all to told about his sorrow of not being able to told his real feelings. He believes Nadeshiko is the one who changes him and his bad habbit so he wants to protect her. One of his ending story was very frightful where he was bathed from blood. Cool scene! But I don’t like him killing Takato or Kaga… Being a traitor for King, makes him a villain in Takato’s route. About his father’s wish as a traitor was revealed in Tora’s story (the reason is to save his wife, Shigure).
The last playable chara is Tokita Shuuya. A model and a forgetful person (I feel curious of how he can study and keep up his school grades for being forgetful). His mother in 14 years old Shuuya is sick, but in 24 years old, his mother is a healthy person who always understand her child. Kaede (one of a traitor) was being respectful for him. Being a person who can inventing, Shuuya as a philosopher is much more reliable than the 14 years old one. Ehm, not much I can say about him because he always in “my pace” mode. His route related to flowers…….?
Overall, I’m still lack one ED (ED no. 03) and two CGs (in etc. page before ED and OP movie). Can someone please help me about the two CGs? It really bothers me not to have all of the CGs because it’s really really a good game! Uhmm, I’m sorry if the CG I had was a bit vertical, right? It’s from the emu… I think. But when I played it, it was common and nothing like a vertically CG appeared. Clock Zero~Shuuen no Ichibyou~ is my most favourite otome game! I really recommend everyone to try playing it. And the after story from every characters are interesting (if I have a fluent Japanese, but oh well, I just know a little bit of it). It’s like reading a real novel. And Nadeshiko, she’s very strong hearted. She can keeps up the story of being alone in unknown world (gladly, there are people she knows). I’m playing two Otomate’s games that has strong heroines in it. 雅恋~Miyako (Sangou) and Clock Zero (Nadeshiko). I’m glad Otomate now has makes a ton of strong heroines! There’re just 3 characters more to end 雅恋~Miyako…!!!
Oh well, here is some CG I’ve completed (I had said that it lacked 2 CGs, right? I hope I can renew it)………………………..
And the kissing scene (I chose the best I thinked):
I’m so sorry if there’s any wrong I’ve tell about this awesome story (2 times I’d said that). After all, this is a hard story..
