The Whale God of Wishes: Review of [150227]Kujiragami no Tear Stilla

Foreword: And finished! Whirlpool games are obviously going to be on the highest priority for me, and for this title, even higher because of the fact that it was Mamizu who was the character designer. I’ve been captivated by her art since I first read 77-Sevens a LOOOOOONG time ago, and this wouldn’t be the last. Unfortunately, there are some things that I’d like to comment on her artwork when I get to the respective section.

Overall, this is your typical charage, except Whirlpool again make that last ditch effort to make this game hold a “story” by adding in a true route at the very end. Did they succeed? Well, head right down into the review to find out!

Warning! This review contains intentional mild spoilers! Read at your own Risk!

Summary: Yuuma woke up to find himself sandwiched and crunched up against something hard, and soon find out that he can’t move his arms. With the sound of the ocean around him and suddenly with water flowing into whatever he’s stuffed in, he starts to panic and screams for help.

It is then a beautiful girl opens up the container that he was imprisoned in and frees him. In Yuuma’s eyes, this girl, Mitsuki, is an angel.
Now finding himself on an unknown island that Yuuma has no idea where or what this place is, Mitsuki takes it upon herself to show him around, including the “Energy Water” which seems to work as a source of power on the island.

Through a series of events, Yuuma falls into a river and gets swept all the way up the mountain (and how the hell is this possible?). In a forest after finally raising himself ashore, he finds a small shrine where a small girl suddenly pops up and calls herself a “Whale God”. This “Whale God” and Yuuma cooperate to return to the city, and apparently, the Whale God takes a liking to the poor boy and makes him her “servant”. Because of this, Yuuma now cannot leave the island, and it’ll only be when the Whale God’s powers return that he’ll be able to!
