I'm writing detailed translation / review for Kinema.
Currently translating the After Stories before I move on to Shigeru's route. (`・ω・´)ゞﾋﾞｼｯ!!
The series seriously needs more love. It's much MUCH better than some winning games in that "Otoge of the Year". Most people I know don't want to play HanaIchi because the art isn't as shiny / colorful (everyone has black / brown hair lol), and unknown seiyuu = instant donotwant.jpg even though they did a marvelous job.. and the ones who actually don't mind hate interactive stat raisers.. orz
Anyone here seen Genichirou's past with his wives?
In Kisuke's route you can collect eight books from quests, and you can read about Genichirou's journey in life. There are sprites of Sanae and the other moms when they were young. I'm really impressed at the amount of effort they put into this fandisk. Plus you can see Genichirou gradually growing old, but let's leave that aside lol. I LOL'd at the title though - "Genichirou and the Seven Wives" xDDD
Hahaha, Genichirou and the Seven Wives makes me think of Henry VIII of England. You old hound dogs you
I'll admit that for the original game, I wasn't all that thrilled with the art. But it definitely grew on me over time. The art for the fandisc? AMAZING! They did such a great job updating the looks of the characters that I was breathless at first. Seriously, these people who want "shiny/colorful" games are crazy to dis HanaIchi without giving it a try. Give them just a few minutes, and they'll fall in love!
In other news, I can't wait for your review!
