Majikoi S Cg Set Hit
Getting back to reviewing Majikoi! Love Me Seriously!, the gameplay was decent. The entire time I played this I had to always wonder if I had missed something. I am so used to visual novels like this where everything is specific to your class that I ended up wondering if something was just missing. There were some pretty strange moments in this that had me wondering if I missed something and there was also a bit of a beginning-middle-end problem with this one. This is the first in the series and its a pretty big departure from most of the other visual novels you have played before. It was also a decent challenge to play through the visual novel and I would suggest it to newbie visual novel fans.
The music is the one of the best parts of Majikoi. It’s so beautiful and fitting and it becomes even more gorgeous with each of the events you hear, which was nice (and I didn’t even catch the most important part, where Momo’s mom gets murdered… ok, that was pretty bad).
Has anyone had any experience with the original Majikoi? I have to admit, I had a bit of a rough time with it. I ran into a lot of issues, ranging from the biggest and nastiest of them being not being able to load a save I had made from the game’s.exe file. I was writing this as I was having this problem and I thought I’d have to do a bit of hunting around to solve it but lo and behold, it’s easily fixed. If anyone else has issues with the original, I’ve posted a guide to fix it up here so hopefully it’ll make your experience a lot easier.
I love how much genre you’re mixing here. The anime is about as serious as any comedy I’ve seen before (add perhaps a smidge of drama to the mix). That said, I love how many different genres you’re mixing in Majikoi. That’s just great. The character design is really, really good too. The anime looks like something you’d see on Adult Swim or something. That’s awesome. I’m going to use some silly examples, but I can’t wait to see a cooking show on that stage of life.
Pure randomness is a beautiful thing, and the ultimate expression of otakus wish to explore all the possibilities. Admittedly, Majikoi S isnt a visual novel about logic, but when you get right down to it this is what it is. An argument about why Im a girl and Takahiro prefers a girl, which leads to Bertille accepting her true self. Its a bit linear, but the plot is definitely one of the most approachable in visual novels. The route is a tad slow but still takes you on a pleasant journey and features only a few male routes.
I liked the first Majikoi game for how it broke the norm and didnt make every possible route a possible route. Even the ones where the route wouldnt have been viable were still interesting. In Majikoi S, one of the characters (Bertille) never gets her route, and thats definitely why I ended up being a little underwhelmed by the one she does get. On top of that, the only female route in the game is a third route throwaway. An even sadder punishment than that is that its the route where I least expect it, and I never wanted any more routes. Theres no answer for this, but I do recommend Majikoi! Love Me Seriously to people looking for a time-sink visual novel where they dont need to read in order to have a good time. Its definitely not one to pick up if you are planning on joining the otaku life and its definitely not the game I recommend you start out playing.
One of the things I really liked about the Majikoi S game is just how much room there was for exploration. In Majikoi I, with just two heroine routes, there was basically only enough room to play the most boring of those routes. The game constantly forces you to grind for skills so you can play more complicated routes, but in Majikoi S the game lets you go above and beyond. In Majikoi S, you play through the simple route over and over, and then you get to play Bertilles more complex and over the top route. There were also some really interesting routes, like Sakura Sisters and Burning School. Each is completely different from the others, with Majikoi S just being more liberal and wild. Its an interesting and fun take on the Otaku route, and an enjoyable one at that.
