What “Romance” is made of; Review of [150529]Rensou Relation

Foreword: It’s been one freaking month since I even posted anything on this blog, and I actually have no great excuse  for it. MMORPG hobbies have been revived (although that’s fluctuating quite a bit), and I was also in the process of playing some older titles I’ve finished in the past. This is why you’ll see this review, as well as TWO more reviews very soon about older titles that I’ve replayed recently.

As for this title, Rensou Relation, long story short it sucks. It sucks so much, that I deserve a freaking trophy for even finishing this. I wanted to drop it soooo badly, but couldn’t because it was a LoS title, and with tears of mental pain rolling down my cheeks at the moment, I frantically type this review in hopes of eliminating this nightmare of a game from my synapse and moving on to HOPEFULLY some better games. Fortunately, I have new nukige ready to go as well as another Favorite game that I’m touching with extreme caution.

Please excuse me even if my review is very short and crappy. Here it is!

Summary: Shinnosuke is actually quite unintelligent. After failing so many entrance exams and pretty much losing out even on his last-line options, it seems that he will be the only one literally a “ronin” even as one in high-school. With family and friends worrying about him, his teacher from the old school calls him for a Last Chance: the school of Amami (What the Fuck; this name is used so often) is offering a Special Entrance Interview to selected individuals, and if he can pass this interview, he’ll be admitted.

With his last ditch effort, he makes his preparations for this interview. However, this isn’t until in the school itself, he meets a mysterious girl who just came out of the bathroom. From this point, Shinnosuke’s story and “Relation” begins.
