Review of [120629]Astraythem (8/10)

Foreword: An underrated game, in my opinion, in most of the community because of its lacking summary/plotline. Originally, I had planned on not playing this game: I am so glad I did though!

| Please note. I have included a link for spoilers for this game at the very bottom of the page. It is your choice to read them or not. I just had to put it there for people who wanted to know the entire story without playing this game.

Title: アステリズム-Astraythem
Producers: Chuable Soft
Release Date: June, 29th, 2012
VNDB Link: http://vndb.org/v7423
Game Type: Novel

Summary: Tsukumo loves his older sister. He keeps it a secret though, because that’s the natural thing to do, right? Who ever heard of a boy falling in love with his older sister? Because of this, he can’t consult anyone, even his best friend who befriended him even when Tsukumo was avoided because of his fierce look.
Nonetheless, his life was lead by his love. Ever since his sister saved him 10 years ago, he was training himself every day, until he became very strong to be called the “Chief” of his school. This story is about his struggle to tell his older sister about his feelings.

Story Length: Moderately Long (30 hours)
Complete Story Clearing Difficulty: Very Easy
Comments: The choices are obvious, but some of the “side” stories will surely bring even more affection for the characters. My advice to players: Do not give up on this game even if it’s boring in the beginning. I assure you that this story will pick up the pace after awhile, and you will thoroughly enjoy it.

Character Design Rating: 8/10
Story Rating: 8/10
Game Quality: High
Overall Rating: 8/10
Rating Comments: Wow. Did not expect such a good plotline in the middle. It only got better and better as the story went on. Movies are exceptionally well-made, and I give my utmost respect for its creators, who I think did one hell of a good job.

The Main Heroine: Natsuki!

Sexual Content: Low

Comments: “Onee-chan daisuki”… It was actually a quote that was used in the second season of Yuruyuri as a form of comedy, but it is used in a completely different context. This is a story with a large number of spoilers (even saying this itself is a spoiler, lol), so I urge the player to experience this game for themselves.

Affection for the Characters: Very High

CG Quality: Superior. In addition to great, eye-catching movies, the reader will realize that for the H-scenes, there are often two SETS of CG for one event, giving you two viewing angles. Now THAT is a lot of effort
Music Quality: Moderate, but very appropriate for the story

Wait, who are you? O_O

Addictiveness: Low. Quite unfortunately, after you’ve seen the story once, it gets a bit boring the 2nd time…
