What a wonderful novel! Finished my first route with the best boi Rune, and ah, couldn't stay silent.
I'm so glad there are VNs like this one.
The plot is indeed intriguing - feels like comedy at first, but as well as you delve into it more, find more Barkest Corners, get to know characters (Even Teak, for instance), the book suddenly becomes more and more serious.
I was just "oh, wow, Rune actually got a new sprite, so serious!" after some time through his route. (By the way, could we get to see and play around with this special sprite in the gallery menu? Sad not to see it there.)
I really like how the MC develops too. At the beginning feels almost like a placeholder with vague representation through CG, but as the plot moves forward, he gets more motivation and more description, more deepness. Delightful approach!
Anyways, can't wait to see other characters developing too, can't wait to see more Rune in maybe other routes, can't wait to see the novel to realize its full potential :)
