Osw*d x Gwend*lyn (Odin Sph*re) R-18 Pure Love
X-ratedMangaJPEG
  • Release: Feb/08/2016
  • DL: 2

This was mostly a sweet and romantic read - the 'action', so to speak, only occupied a small potion of the book. There's also a few pages dedicated to sketches - some Odin Sph*re, some aren't.
The event inside took place before and after Gwend*lyn rescued Osw*ld from the underworld, in case anyone's wondering.
Art was OK - it's more towards cute.

This is a fine example that a VN does not need to be sexualised to be good.

The story is engaging, the translation did a good job and the plot, while not an easy subject, didn't underestimate the readers by dumbing down the subject.
...I have to admit there were several moments where I glossed over what was being talked about, but that was not the fault of the translation; it's just that I'm simply not that interested in stock trading.

The lack of voice didn't bother me, but sometimes, for some of the more heartfelt moments, I wished they had had a CG drawn for it.

The price is well worth it for a VN of this quality.

I bought this game thinking that it looked very pretty, and it certainly didn't disappoint. The game wasn't voiced, but for the price it's not like you can ask for more.

The game has 3 capturable characters, and each character has 2 different paths to take: you can take the romantic route or take the dark route, and the multiple endings depend on which route you're on. If you take the romantic route, the story would then be quite cute and sweet, whereas the dark routes would be surprising/shocking if you weren't expecting it (with the exception of one character, whose dark route was actually sad).

If you're looking for something pure and innocent, then this game is not for you. If you can handle some dark themes, then this was quite a nice otome game.

Like the other review said, this is a good pack to buy if you're thinking of using it for a VN game and such.

The only complaint I'd have is that most of the songs are suited to a certain kind of scene. Listening through the songs trying to figure out which song would suit what kind of scene, I noticed that most of the songs would suit a "tense/suspenseful" moment if it's used for a VN. I wished there had been more of a "daily life" kind of BGM song, but for this price it's well worth it.

A visual novel about a serious killer.

If you're looking for a psychological thriller, then you should definitely get this game. The story and the characters were very well-crafted, and the rather abstract illustration style added to the overall atmosphere rather than detract from it.

Storyline was very well done, and the way the mystery was layered on top one another would keep you guessing until the end. Well worth the money just for the story alone.

Be warned though, some of the imagery might be rather squicky or grotesque, depending on your sensitivity.

If all you're looking for is sex... well, move along. There's none to be found here.
