Gensou Yawa – Quick Snap (R18)
It has been a long time sinced my last post about gaming ^^! This will be about Chou no Doku Hana no Kusari ~Gensou Yawa~, but I didn’t write review. It’ll just be my rambling about the game.
So now, I had a troublesome new year and all and just finished “Chou no Doku Hana no Kusari ~Gensou Yawa~” quiet a days ago. Part of it might be because the game itself doesn’t have much value to my interest. I’d rather prefer the first game, of course. The FD just continuing the story after bad and good ending from previous series. And the storyline isn’t worth playing, except that you want R18 scenes the most. The only thing protected me from dropping it was because I wanted to hear Kondo Takashi‘s voice. And yes, I like to hear him more, mostly if I remembered PersonA ~Opera za no Kaijin~.
The game itself was for us to know of what happened after the first series. There will be choices to see the characters good nor bad ending, but I feel that it didn’t matter since what I thought would come badly after the end of bad ending, in here, I found that the characters changed my opinion of them. Bad ending itself just told stories where the guys wouldn’t just standing without doing anything after noticing Yuriko‘s sadness. They had feelings towards her and made my opinion of them, becoming evil in first game, just being wasted. They changed my perceptions.
After completing the guys bad or and good endings, another story would appear. It’s not a new one, just telling the guys’ feelings to Yuriko and the truth behind their actions to her from their point of view. But then again, you can’t complete the CG without playing the minigames. The minigames itself also doesn’t have good storyline. It tells a quizes for Yuriko to complete and the present for us is one CG of them, getting vacation and all. Really, Mizuhito‘s CG on these is the only one I hate, where he catches Yuriko on bathtub. Nope, you won’t have all the CG if in here.
Open the exact game again (not minigame), then you can find there’s new side story besides extra menu. It will change Saburou‘s form to a hot guy. Well, not really hot because he’s just a stupid servant. Choose all choices to see different (funny) story and the end of it, you have another ending with all cat guys. Not important but it must be seen to complete all CG.
I kept seeing Kitou Kaki from Hanaoni in here…. Isn’t it?
I had forgotten most of its storyline from previous game because it also didn’t leave much impression to me. Whereas I was excited to play the FD before, I found that it’s not what I expected to be. Not having unique storyline, or at least, unique story-telling, this FD is just good for nothing as what I am searching about in a VN is strong storyline and beautiful scenery. Gensou Yawa isn’t like that. Not for me.
I want to play Eikoku Tantei Mysteria (sorry to skip many games released before that) but it seems I must complete Shining Ark first. Different from Shining Blade, I hate the bake bread system and quests. And I don’t really like Panis for her ‘ringing’ voice. But I like Kilmaria, she’s cool with two guns. That’s why I kept playing it, the only reason is to use Kilmaria as my team battle. As for PC game, I am eager to complete Sekien no Inganock ~What a Beautiful People~ with English patch, after my sister finish it and found tragedy. Yup, I’m ready for tragic story, like mine.
