If my heart had wings get 5/5 (-1 because its a MoeNovel release*)
Great character routes; that's the best part, the characters are what got me sold, not the "story". It's a tad dialogue heavy for me, not a bad thing, BUT; different routes should have had completely different ideals, there is just too much focus on that cloud, i wished each route could have been viewed from the heroines prospective.(opinion)
Nonetheless; it is a great visual novel, some parts felt pretty satisfying(Amane Route), character designs is the reason i think highly of this VN, but that's not all there is to it, you will get your fair share of well written romance, drama, and comedy.
*I only have one complain:
MoeNovel screwed this game big time, and i mean BIG TIME.
Censors aside (big insult to the visual novel industry)
the translation really was a disappointment, did not match the original dialogue some of times, assuming for convenience to the readers.
If My Game Had Wings
Let me get one thing clear, i love this game. Everything about it is awesome! But..
The artwork and the music fits the atmosphere and the story the game puts you trough. I still get goosebumps whenever the music plays to an epic scene. The humor and the drama, is well balanced, but that can also depend on what girl you choose. Aoi is a great character, but sometimes i feel he is just there to help the girls story along witch can get annoying. This example is best seen in Ageha's story line, but it is a very small complain.
As for the censorship i was disappointed and pleased at the same time. The story is good and doesn't need sex scenes, but with that said i feel it was a mistake to leave it out. I understand they want to get this game out to as many people as they can, but we should at least have the option to either skip scenes like that, or just cut it from the game play in the option menu so it is up to the gamer to decide what rating it should be.
Many says the patch makes the game better and i think it does, but you have to go trough a complicated installation and downloads. I thank the people who has put effort into this patch, but i would rather have the company released such a patch without having to go trough setting my computer to Japanese and download a programs i am not sure of.
But with that said i did it, and the patch is really good, but i would rather have the company to release the patch themselves.
At any rate, this game is worth your money and time and will give it a well deserved five stars! XD
Worth the money
This game has an excellent story and some great characters that, while fitting into some typical tropes, are interesting. Even without the H content this is a good VN.
Also, there is a patch (google it) that can restore the H material.
Play the Trial Version first.
I'm surprised MangaGamer even agreed to put this on their site, you'd think that they'd have a quality standard for 3rd party translations. It doesn't seem like the translators spent too much time with the editing and their translation is... amateur-ish at best compared to other translators, granted English doesn't seem to be their native language so they did alright. Definitely recommend playing the trial version before buying it, and for anyone that's disappointed with the cutting of all the H-scenes, kissing, dirty jokes, etc. (of which there is A LOT of) there happens to be a restoration patch out there that'll bring back all that ecchi goodness... I really recommend getting that patch, I don't really understand why they made an 18+ VN to a 12+ VN, just how many kids play VN's anyway?
I would give this game two stars, sure, the story seems great, but this i supposed to be a romance Visual Novel, and instead it's one of those childish romance types, in not a huge pervert, but the H scenes define sex in most visual novels, and the fact that they cut it, man. Buying this game was a mistake, I wish I would have known about the censorship before I bought it
Okay, so this game has all the sexual content removed, that's no secret. So, what are we left with after all the removed content? What remains is a moving, heartfelt game that can actually be recommended to anyone. Teenagers could play this without feeling embarrassed, and gone are all the perverted quirks that would remind you that this is a game tailored to fit certain sexual fantasies. This game does not need the H-scenes or CGs to stand on its own as a great title. If that is what you want, Mangagamer has plenty of other choices to satisfy that need. This is one of the only games available to English that provides a truly excellent visual novel experience for anybody. It has up-to-date graphics, an engaging story, and it fills a void sorely lacking in translated visual novels for all ages. Unless you only play VNs for the hot naked chicks, you are missing out to pass this one up if you like slice of life or romance games. This would also make the perfect first Visual Novel for anyone, male or female.
Wow. This is what happens when you censor a 18+ visual novel and ship it with a half assed translation.
First: the censored content. Roughly 12% of the lines in this game have been completely cut in order to reach a "wider audience". I refuse to buy any product that doesn't include ALL content. Not to mention the censored version only has 60% of the CG of the original.
Second: the translation. Most lines appear to be unedited. The wording is rigid and verbose. Clearly it was translated by a person that English was not their native language. Don't believe me? Just take a looks at these screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/pA57s/noscript#0
Absolutely disgusting. This is a butchered product of an otherwise superb Japanese VN. Don't support censorship and more importantly don't support MoeNovel. Don't let these companies think that this kind of censorship is acceptable, the best way of doing that is to simply not buy the product; the sales will speak for themselves.
a barely okay release
just now finished the game after buying it right after it came out. first step past the issue that all the 18+ content got removed. in my opinion its a step or two above a machine translation its not bad but nor is it great either. it seems kinda rushed too since a few lines are unedited. im glad that the majority of the plot is in easy to understand English and i can now read what was removed later myself from the original version without alot less difficulty since i only have the basics of the Japanese language down. i gave it 3 stars cause i bought it and will buy more releases by moenovel but i wont be recommending it to anyone else cause, the people that would buy it hate that content got removed and their "target" audience already has a stigma against this type of game.
Although they have removed some scenes but I still enjoy the game :) I don't care about removing scenes, I care only the story.....
After I played this game for about 12 hours..... I still have fun with it :)
Not worth the time or money
I made the mistake of purchasing this. They took a romance visual novel and stripped it of it's identity. There were many scenes that had been cut or altered from the original beyond just the H-scenes and its a shame they had to do this to what was a great VN from Pulltop.
I'm disappointed that Mangagamer doesn't fully disclose the extent of the changes that are made to this VN.
A excellent VN
At first I have to make one thing clear, the Japanese originale of this VN comes as a 18 and above version, regardless of the reasons why, this translated version is a All Ages-version, so it is only reasonable and logical that they had to "censor" some things, like to remove the sex-scenes.
But even without these scenes this is still a excellent VN with a heartrending story, so if you give it a chance you probably won't regret it.
NO just no
I have played through the original Japanese version, and the English version. The English version compared to the Japanese version is horrible. The Japanese version relies heavily on lewd stuff. There are even routes that focus only on lewd stuff, however, in the English version all of this is removed. They remove almost half of the CGs, and butcher the entire VN with their "all ages" version. I would like to inform all potential buyers that this VN is really not worth your time. If you really want to play it that bad you should start working on your Japanese because the English version of this game and the Japanese version of this game cannot even be considered the same game. I forgot to mention that they said they added content to make up for them removing the lewd parts, but that "added content" is less than an hour long, while the lewd parts makes up almost half the game in the Japanese version.
I admit to being as uneasy with the thought of the edited content as any other and in truth I still stand against censorship of any sort. Having gone on record saying that, I really like this game even in the edited state. It is very enjoyable, wonderful characters and the type of engaging story that is just hard to find in many games. I truly encourage everyone to give this game a chance, it is well worth it.
