I like the characters and the art a lot and am always sad when I've finished a pathway. There are some that I like more than others. However the IAPs are really overpriced. $20 worth of coins only got you about 5 scenes and the scenes are often not worth it which leaves you frustrated. This is definitely not really a set of stories with much choice but it's a very cute visual novel. Asra's story is the best developed imo. I feel $20 should have unlocked multiple books...

Hello, and thank you for your feedback! All of the premium choices are optional and whether you spend money in the game does not determine which ending of a story you receive. We also offer many ways to earn free coins under the "Dailies" tab plus the chance to earn free coins for watching video ads as you keep on playing. Hope that this helps!

One of the best games I've ever gotten. It has amazing visuals, an amazing story, great art and music, and some lovely diverse characters to romance with. Each character is unique in their own way, and gives you a lovely selection of happiness. Oh, and some absolutely lovely side characters *cough cough Selasi.* Not only that, but getting coins is pretty easy (especially if you spend them wisely). Once again, one of the best games I've ever downloaded.

I've only fully played through once so far but I love this! The art and storytelling are engrossing. I will definitely play through every ending and find all the details uncovered from each different choice. I'm thoroughly invested in every detail of this world, story, and characters. I've even started sewing a cosplay for how I have envisioned my character. My only tiny critique is that on replay, it doesn't seem to bookmark your progress, but it's not a dealbreaker.
