Foreword: Well, this is what I get when I get greedy and try to finish several games at once; finish games halfway, then get bashed with exams, then somehow stagger back up and finish them again.
It really doesn’t help that this is a mediocre Whirlpool game, and the producers opted on putting a bit more detail than they should have. While this IS your stereotypical Whirlpool game with a definite theme, plot, and even morals, I found it to be rather boring despite the various “censored” references (they even censor the term “Tetris” for some reason, lol).
Overall, this is a very weak Whirlpool game, which leads me to believe that games are becoming more and more crappy as time goes along. I don’t know why this is, since it’s not like the scenario writers are retiring or anything… I also think what really adds salt to the wound is that the character personalities are also rather overused, but I’ll get to that later.

Uhm… Seiko? I hope that’s not what I think it is…
Summary: In this world, teenage girls often have an annoying disease called “Princess Syndrome” that causes them to have an unusual personality and sometimes become very dangerous. For these people, a special island was designated to serve as a home, so this “syndrome” can be cured as soon as it appears. It also seems that there’s no real “cure” for this disease until the girl becomes an adult (At this point, I was really reminded of the Chuunibyou, which is a psychological disorder occuring at about the age of 15, when a child may generally overestimate his/her own abilities or act haughty). Yuuji is one of the rare people who possess powers of a “prince”, who has the ability to stop a princess if she goes on a rampage, and because of this, was invited to this island where there are only females with the disease or had the disease in the past.
From the first day, he will meet up with his mentor “Prince”, who will assist him in various procedures, and interact with four girls who are all “princesses”. They have something that triggers their “princess syndrome”, and it is his goal to cure them.
