Lucky Love Life? Review of [060929]Konboku

Foreword: Another Akabeisoft2 Game! As I was trying to finish as many titles as humanly possible for the upcoming release on March 28th (while trying to balance schoolwork), this was one of the games I decided to knock out as soon as possible.

Turns out, however, I didn’t need to spend too much time on it–it sucked.

As horrified I am to report, it seems that when it comes to the Romance genre, Akabeisoft 2 is another company you should really avoid. This is despite the fact that many of the other games they’ve created earned great ratings even worthy of being a kamige.

Perhaps I went too far back in time…? Nonetheless, let’s get started with the review of Konboku.

But before I begin, I’d like to apologize in advance that I got a bit lazy with this review, partially because I didn’t want to spend too much time writing up for a game I didn’t really enjoy, but also because I have another one I want to write up before I get to the next game.

Game Type: School life Romance Novel

Summary: Tooru is feared by the entire school. They all know what he did last year…
This is why he stuffs his face with cup ramen three times daily as he only attends school hating his life and everything around him. He refuses to interact with anyone including his own parents, and lives by himself in a small apartment  with no one to take care of him.

This was when he comes across a strange cat like creature being threatened by a dog. Somehow finding the heart of helping the cat out, the cat starts to tell him that he is a god, and he needs “love power” to become strong again. To prove that he is indeed a god, this cat (?) knows all of Tooru’s secrets, and even helps him run into a girl.

While finding him an eye-sore, Tooru brings back the god (who he names Susumu), and takes care of him. In return, Susumu will then use his powers to allow Tooru to have “lucky encounters” with a girl.
