So I never played any of the previous games and just downloaded this directly. Certainly something different, but that's not a bad thing in this case.
You already know about how I feel about the narration and dialogue. Think of it as lemonade and chocolate milk; they're good on their own, but together they don't mix well at all. Narration alone would have been good, dialogue alone would have been good, but the two together are clunky. Like water and oil, there was little to no meshing with clear distinctions that ruined the flow of the KN. There were some lines of narration that managed to augment the dialogue, but they were far and few.
As for the story, there really was no plot XD This is pretty much the epitome of slice of life. Some people can find it boring, while others will find it genuinely interesting in terms of the interactions that go on between the characters. I fall into the latter, and I'm enamored by Dewi's multi-layered personality.
She's leading on our nameless protag and egging him on to do something, and if he even tries she'll just sock him in the arm >_> She just has too much fun breaking hearts, and something about that makes people like the nameless hero go back to her all the time.
Masochism, here we go! The ending didn't feel like much of an ending, but it kinda looped back to the beginning with all the bubble blowing and whatnot. Everything went in a full circle, and while nothing really happened, I don't think the protag or Dewi felt like their time was wasted.
It certainly didn't feel like a waste of time reading it for me :3
The art was okay, but the NVL mode covered up Dewi's sprite :C A lot of times you would say something like "Dewi crossed her arms" when her sprite shows her putting a hand on her hip instead >_> A minor detail, but still a disparity. Meanwhile, the music was very nice and, even after looping several times, it never got annoying for me.
Overall an interesting read, something to pick up when you're in the mood to really think about the meaning of the word "love." In other words, me gusta c:
