When I picked up this game, it was out of sheer novelty. What's the harm in a bit of silly fluff, right?

Wrong. I thought I would be spending my time laughing my head off at a completely absurd spoof game. Instead I became completely wrapped up in the story so completely I could not help but take it seriously at all times.

The amount of depth in this game is incredible.
Every detail has a place and will eventually make sense if you really think about it. This has some of the most incredible and thorough writing I have come across in a dating-sim period. This, from a dating-sim... about birds.

I laughed, cried, smiled, raged, bawwed, and clutched my pillow in sheer-terror (this is not an exaggeration). A full range of emotions that I would be hard-pressed to squeeze out of a $60 video game... in a $5 one about birds!

You have no idea what you are in for. I will never look at birds in the same way again.

Most definitely the best $5 I have ever spent on a game. Most definitely worth much more than that.

I will absolutely be picking up the next one.
This game has turned me from a skeptic into a believer. I hope that the writer of this game continues to produce more quality works like this one.

this visual novel was like a storm story. because every route, has different story genre. Upon playing one route it was about friendship, and then other route suddenly became thriller story, ghost story, secret agent story, murder story, adventure story etc.
But yes, the jokes are funny and I had to apologize my roommate for laughing to hard (perhaps)
overall its a very sweet work worth trying
oh, and there's a bonus story that's very exciting!

I want to know who told me this was a funny game about dating birds, because it isn't! Well... not only. It's a heartwrenching story that will make you laugh and cry, and search for a 100% completion, even if you aren't the type who usually tries all routes in a dating sim. You'll be tempted to pursue everyone to reveal the truth about this highly addictive and replayable game. The best 420 yen I've ever spent!

I was shocked at how customizable this set really is. The character looks great, and while there is only one body pose, the number of outfits, faces, eye colors and hair choices make this a must have! It also helps that the character looks great, and blends in well with other character packs. Probably the best eight dollars I've spent in a long time. If you are like me (not much of an artist) and need a good character pack, get this one.

It is so interactive and fun.
I would definitely recommend this game for those who like 2D Action. You need to use the mouse/keyboard controls, the keyboard to control Collte, and mouse to control Spoon Devil and that's very interesting. The graphics are good and the game is challenging. You have to be fast and you need good strategy to survive rounds of colorful sprite bombardment.
Try and you will be pleased.

I almost feel guilty admitting how often I listen to this piece… I feel spoiled after listening to this circle’s work and nothing else seems to satisfy me! The audio quality is phenomenal--that damn 3D mic! The voice acting is also very professional and comfortable. I think this specific voice actor will most definitely and gently lull you to sleep. However, if you’re like me, you’ll be rolling around in bed at 3 am before passing out via a combination blood loss, seizures, and cardiac arrest when you realize someone is thoroughly licking oil off of your body.

(Correct me if I’m wrong... I dare you.)

The controls of this game are arcade and nostalgic with a few modern touches. To add to this, the portraits that are unlocked are interesting to those who are underwater fans. The graphics are great and the puzzles are challenging and there are plenty of things to make it harder. My final opinion, if you are an underwater fan and you wish for a challenging anime puzzle game, then I suggest you take this game in great consideration.

I really enjoyed the flow of the story and the designs of the characters after playing the first one so moving on to the sequel was an obvious choice.
I didn't expect it to be nearly as good but I was wrong.
This is fantastic. The jokes are amusing, the characters are almost all familiar from the first game.
There are fewer story lines than the last game but that's fine because the jokes and even just the dialogue makes up for it.
I believe the game is completely worth the price.

You guys had no idea how hard I laughed during the introductory stage of the game. Seriously. But after awhile, you get used to the characters and your brain would somehow replace the birds with the human imagery of the characters, I don't how how, weird but true.

I couldn't expect a longer game of like 9 chapters like Hakuouki's Hijikata's route, but to me, this Otome game is worth a go. Wish it could be slightly longer, really, and show like their reunion or end story or epilogue, but sadly there wasn't. I can't complain, it was a decent game nonetheless.

The flow of the story is fairly simple, I won't spoil for you guys.

I was very very very skeptical about buying this game, and I still am wondering if I had somehow made the wrong choice, in buying this. The game's route is NOT SO STRAIGHTFORWARD, the branching is quite complicated to me, it ain't as clear cut as the choices you make really affects the others (except for elective classes), so a little bit shocked by that.

I am still laughing at some of the parts of the game, it is so hilarious, and a very mild typical teenage setting.

It's not like every other Otome game where every single guy falls and fawns over you like you're the only girl in the universe no, so it has that bonus, for a realistic set up, which is what I love, because you have to earn their attention.

Keep up the good work!

Well, when I read about this game, the first thought that crossed my mind was: No way. And when I saw how many people have played this game I couldn't believe it.

So, why not me? And I downloaded the demo. I didn't play that long, just like 5 minutes when I decided to buy it. It was crazy, but really funny. I laughed really hard when I was playing.

So, do I recommend this? Yeah, of course I do. It has a deep story and at the same time it's really incredible. At first you'll be like: A PIGEON IS TALKING TO MEEEEE WEIRD WEIRD WEIRD. But then, it gets better. A lot better.
