Tomoe Kirinokojima
An anti-social and apathetic young man. With the exception of Naruko, he has few people that could be considered friends. His one hobby is archery, an activity he can perform alone.
An angel of love who, at a glance, seems like an ordinary girl who is always energetic, kind, and a bit clumsy. Bringing others happiness is what she lives for. When she is left unable to complete her angelic duties, she enlists Tomoe to act as an "angel’s proxy" to assist her.
Naruko Nakizaki
A long-time friend and classmate of Tomoe’s. Since she’s the only girl Tomoe has allowed to get close, people often tease her and ask if they are dating, but she doesn’t act fazed by their jeers. She is a caring, popular person whom people often come to for advice. While she is reasonably popular with men due in part to her cheerful personality, she never talks about her own romantic interests.
Yuri Hisaka
A transient yet gentle woman one year Tomoe’s senior. She treasures her sister above all else, and leaves school early every day to meet and walk home with her. As a result, she has few friends at school, and more often than not spends time by herself. Secretly, she is actually quite popular with men, whom think of her as maternal, kind, and intelligent.
Minamo Wakamatsu
A cool yet docile girl one year Tomoe’s junior. She focuses on keeping a low profile and not sticking out both at school and in her private life so people won’t take notice of her for a specific reason. Her composure and ability to think in the long-term often leaves her exasperated by those around her.

An epic tale
This may not be the bow tied happy ending type in fact it's a lot of sadness and depression however very realistic situations. Definitely worth every penny to me. The angels are unique and very likeable the song they perform on one route is simply beautiful. Try not to get any spoilers, you must clear the three human girls to unlock Aine's special unforgettable route. I sincerely hope you enjoy it half as much as I did, I've read VN for a very long time and this is the first that I had to review. Enjoy!
A very unique title
I don't want to get too in depth, but basically, there aren't a lot of visual novels that have an anthology format, and I don't think that there are any that do it like this VN.

The protagonist, Tomoe, is fairly unusual, being someone completely bitter on the very notion of romance. It would be easy to simply dismiss him as an unreasonable edgelord, but the VN makes it clear that he has a very good reason to be bitter, even if the specifics aren't revealed until the true route. His discussions about what is ultimately best for people with the extreme idealist that is Aine make for some of the best dialogue in the VN. The VN makes it clear that both the extreme cynic protagonist and the extreme idealist angel heroine Aine have valid points in their arguments.

The common route of this title detail the trials and tribulations of 6 different couples. The first couple has only one type of conclusion and the sixth couple has unusual circumstances that aren't made clear until the True route, but 4 of the couples have 2 different conclusions that you can pick from; both which lead to a bittersweet resolution. Which conclusion is happier isn't very clearcut, and the fact that both conclusions are about as equally bittersweet is a credit to the VN. The VN could have made it so one conclusion was obviously happier, especially since the true route mandates that you pick a particular choice every time. However, they did not, which drives home with the moral ambiguity of the decision being made with the couples.

There are 4 different routes: 2 I would call subheroine routes and 2 I would call main heroine routes. It's a similar format to Deardrops, though the subheroine routes are more substantial in Bokuten. Minamo's route resembles the common route the most in tone, and the endings to that route are about as bittersweet as the conclusions of the common route relationships. Yuri's route is where things start going a bit crazy and is a small taste of the extent of the drama that occurs in the major heroine routes. Naruko is when the setting starts revealing its true colors and is what I personally think is the most depressing route. Aine or the True route answers any remaining questions about the protagonist, the setting, and the plot and has what I believe to be the most satisfying ending of all of the routes, even if some of the revelations might be a bit hard to swallow without some willing suspension of disbelief. I thought it worked out fine, but just be wary that there are a lot more supernatural elements in play in Aine's route than in the other 3 routes.

Ultimately, while I wouldn't call it my favorite VN, it's a title very much worth playing, especially if you want a change of pace from a more traditional romance visual novel. Just be prepared for some really morose events and endings.
