The 99th Full Moon… Review of [120224]Tsukumonotsuki

Foreword: Oh hey! A game released on my birthday! Woo~
But really. Surprised that I can spit out a review in such a short amount of time?



Yeah, I’m surprised too.

Jokes aside, let’s get right onto the review. Pretty much a game I had my eyes on since it’s release, it’s rather sad it took me 9 months to get through with this game. Nonetheless, it was actually quite decent compared to the other games I’ve played so far. The only huge drawback of this game is that there’s a portion of the game where plot is REALLY slow, and CAN cause people to simply not want to play it.

However, I urge you to continue with it since the conclusion is actually decent compared to the other games I’ve been playing recently. It’s also very nice that the entire story foreshadows the conclusion, and if you’re sharp, you may even find out what’s truly going on even before you hit the heroine’s route.

But when I started this game, I was literally drooling at the fact that Aoba Ringo (she’s an awesome CV) was voicing a white-haired loli-imouto character. Here’s a sample of her voice (HOLY CRAP SHE’S SO CUTE)

That, good friends, is why I went through with this game even when I had exams and had other games I was playing.
But I’ll stop blabbing about how awesome the main character was, and get on with the review.

Summary: Keita lives his daily life satisfied with his younger sister Maya and his good friend Akane. Although their life isn’t that of luxury, Keita works daily to make ends meet while Maya helps with the household chores. All seems well… or is it?

Keita actually has amnesia. He only knows that their parents passed away from Maya’s words, who says they ran away from relatives trying to take advantage of their situation. If that wasn’t enough, Maya is also very frail, and gets sick often.
Despite this, the siblings get along very well, and support each other everyday.

One day, Maya starts to act strange. She seems to be sick in Keita’s eyes, but Maya won’t tell him what’s wrong with her. Instead, she urges that the siblings return to their hometown, since she feels an urgent need to go there.
Finding this strange, Keita agrees, and the siblings leave for the land that they abandoned 8 years ago.

In the area, they find nothing…

Until Maya exclaims that she can hear a song, and runs to the forested area.
There, the siblings find a white-haired girl who often appeared in Keita’s dreams. This girl, who calls herself Tsukumo, is now a self-proclaimed younger sister of Keita, and returns along with the siblings.

Maya tells Keita to take good care of this strange girl…
But it won’t be long; a shrine maiden named Yukina will now try to take Tsukumo with her, back to the countryside!
