Okay, so I finally finished this and...
...Goddammit. All kinds of feels went out for this one. Sadness for Rico's death and Shuang's sacrifice and Bertha's letter for Raphael. Then there's contempt and frustration for Zhuang. I've always thought something was suspicious about him, but it never crossed my mind that he was Shuang's doppelgager. /brick'ed

Then there's those moments of laughter with Neo's antics. Seriously, he's the best "obtainable guy" I have encountered in all the Visual Novels I've played.

As for Blake, though... I kinda feel sad for him. (He's the true forever alone guy. XD) It's like he became demoted to extra upon entering the true path. He wasn't even mentioned in the epilogue. Which is really disappointing, but it's probably for the best since he's the only sane man among the cast despite the fact that he's aloof and all that. XD

As for the endings, I think the best one was probably the yin-and-yang one. I dunno how to explain it, but for me, I honestly prefer that over the canon one. (Don't get me wrong though, I still like the true ending.)
All in all, you did an awesome job. You've outdone all your past works and for me, this is the best free OELVN I've read and I think it's gonna take a long time before another can top or match this. ^_^

Oh, and what's the title of the very ending song? I've been humming it for the past two hours now. It's quite catchy. XD

After soo long, I decided to go back and see if I had left any ending.
And I found out I haven't gotten the first two from End of the Inverted soul. So I downloaded the walkthrough, but it doesn't seem to have those two there :/
So... How can I get them? :P

I've begun reading this to my mom! Haha, she gets a bit frustrated with the confusing scenes where you don't know who is talking, but it's part of the fun of the mystery! She seems to be enjoying it, though. Looks like she's gotten onto Raphael's path. I was surprised though, I was so sure she'd end up on Lee's, LOL, so this'll be interesting to experience as a first path. I wonder which ending she'll get though. It's kinda exciting sharing a VN you love with someone. I love reading it aloud, too. I can put all the inflection I pictured in my head, ahahaha!

No problem~! I should be thanking you for coming up with such an awesome VN! XD
The song that played for the true ending... The one with the singing and stuff.

Well it's the 1 and 2 from "End of the Inverted soul"
Even though I've already gotten all the other endings, I can't get these two!

Oh, oh! I remember getting those myself! If I remember correctly, you....
For the first one, make sure you select choices "Does Senior Rahphael have good friends?", "We can do this ourselves", and "Technically, this isn't his fault" that should do it.
For the second one, make sure you select the choices "What have I been given?", "To deny my wish to be Bertha", and "Ask Arthur's Help" that should do it.
I hope this helps!

just finish playing this and it was really unexpecting!!! okay i just have to make a review on this ^^ im going to be honest so dont take any offence ^^
art: well the art was...not good. but not bad either. it s passable, since most players can understand what u r trying to draw. better technique can be used, tho it s great improvement from ur past games :) p.s: lin and shuang are the prettiest XD
gui: a bit overly exaggerated...all those blood and stuff.
music: is it just me or is there an extra beat for the themed music at the main menu? o.O anyways the music was pretty good tho, most of them fits their meanings
videos: idk if its just me but the game crashes whenever a video is played so i skipped through them all...

and for the characters well ill put it in spoiler just incase ^^
lucia- tbh, i dont really like her. i mean, shes kinda selfish that all she wanted at first was revenge. and shes really annoying when at cliffords path she didnt tell him about the letter becuz she doesnt like shuang. shes so ungrateful of her sister...tho her sister is perfect and such, bertha cared about luci a lot while lucias like "no fair whys bertha always better than me" and shes also kinda crazy when she killed lee in one of his path, man it was creepy. they were just talking normally and all of a sudden she just killed him o.O but i like lucia better when shes at blake's ending XD i guess cuz she doesnt act as crazy haha XD but in the other endings shes kinda better and less annoying cuz she actually cared for her friends and she really wanted to keep the same ^^

yuri-whoa it was a total twist. its shocking how he became a delinquent from a girl-ish guy. tho i dont think ppl with xxy disease actually act more girly. only they r more taller and such...it was a bit over exaggerated...anyways, it was surprising how he fell in love with jun when he was younger and he thought he was a guy. so like he thought he was gay but it turned out he was not gay lol XD

jun-jun is so adorable XD shes such a nice friend to lucia. i guess i like her cuz shes tomboyish and kinda similar to me...except i cant do the spinning bird kick haha XD

rico-whyyyyyyyyyy he died D: he tried so hard to fight with lucia and them in the true ending...he never really got any happy endings in any of the paths T_T poor guy, at least he met up with his gf in the end...so it wasnt that bad ^^

anastasia-tbh i never disliked her. tho shes a jerk to lucia at firstbut later she realized she was wrong. and she did wish lucia for the best in the true ending ^^ im happy for her when she get to be with rico forever XD and her story with rico, it s just too cute XDXD all the best for them :D

clifford-he creeped me out at first. he seemed to know so much about doppelgangers. but in the end he was a nice guy, not wanting others to be like him. hes a great friend to lucia too. hes such a nice guy XD

shuang-to put it straight, shes dumb. she trusts too easily. she believes like every word zhuang says to her. but it s not really her fault tho, cuz she rarely even goes outside. lee is such a jerk to her, if i were her cousin id be wayyyyyyy nicer to her than lee ever was!!! shes so amazing with the protection shields and stuff. i cant believe shes the cause of doppelgangers!!! she looked so innocent and pure, but then again she didnt know that they r bad so u cant really blame her. tho it s sad when everyone blamed her in the true ending, and she didnt even know anything T_T and in the true ending i was like "WHAT SHE WANTED TO BE A GUY" never expected that from shuang. she looked pretty happy on the outside, but i guess everyone has their dark secrets. tho she had a tough life, i feel really sorry for her. but shes really strong about it and i really admire that trait ^^

zhuang-I JUST KNEW THERES SOMETHING WRONG WITH HIM!!! in raphael's path hes just too suspicious. i mean, why would he help them when he didnt even know them...shocked that hes actually shuang's doppelganger!!! i thought he just follows her cuz hes a loner or something haha XD but yeah, never expected him to be THAT evil!!! at least lucia and them got rid of him in the true end...

lin-shes my favourite character XD i like her so much!!! i guess cuz shes...um...yandere...? well the story between her and lee really touched me ^^ shes so kind to him, too bad she got put in a mental hospital or something like that...HOW COULD LEE DO THAT.i guess after what ppl did to her, it s only natural shed want to get revenge on them, cant really blame her for it. also i love the violin sound ^^

lee- whoa at first hes like those typical perfect prince shoujo guys!!! hes actually creepy XD idk why ppl dislikes him so much but i kinda like him XD hes ambitious and he really cares about his goals. hed to anything for his love...man another yandere...i think im a yandere fan since i like both yandere characters lol anyways tho his actions werent good but at least he did it for love, i mean thats something at least it s better than "oh i just felt like it" and tbh i dont like any of lees paths. i guess lucia and lee are just never meant to be. i love the yin and yang ending when he and lin just kinda died together. (man why do i always like those creepye endings...) i personally think hes much better with lin than lucia...tho it kinda seemed like he only got together with lin cuz lucia dumped him and lin seemed like a replacement o.O

raphael-DONT LIKE HIM AT ALL. i guess hes probably the worst character in the vn. i still dont understand what lucia likes about him...he did so many bad things and all he really want are his own goals and he kinda has a crush on shuang i think? like he shouldve considered shuangs feelings more and how she felt instead of wanting possession of her...

neo- at first i thought hes like a serial killer or something lol. but it turned out he was a police!!! O_O surprise, surprise...hes really really funny haha i laughed a lot at his dialogues XD i was surprised at his relationship with lee...never expected that!!! o.O poor lee was left alone tho D:

blake-WHY DOES HE EVEN HAVE A PATH -.- his path made me almost (notice the world almost) forgot about the doppelganger stuff lol XD it was relaxing and fun ^^ it s funny how he called lucia luke lol XD

bertha- man her story was sad D: shes a really nice sister i think ^^ i really liked how she observed lucia and noticed thawt lucia was kinda sad so she sent letters to her. shes really kind too!! even at her death she wanted raphael to protect lucia. she really cares a lot for lucia
overall: whoa that was a long review...there were so many twisted and it was very interesting!!! this is the best vn uve ever made in my opinion ^^ keep up the good work!!!

I've been doing a speedrun of the game (since it's now or never as schoolwork piles on me), but I have to say Lee is my favorite character. Not because I think he's cute but because he's batsh*t crazy to the point of being hilarious. Going through the Blake route, I almost half expected him to show up during Bright New Days with a knife in his hand.

I will vote for tracks too! :D -shot-
1. Autumn Rain (Man why didn't anyone vote on this? XD -shot- It just feels so calming, but it's like a swirl of having confusion and looking -desperately- for a solution in life. It's... magnetizing.. me.. -shot- myfaveactuallylolol)
2. Abandoned (Damn, just listen to it.. the intensity of having to act on few options if you want to solve a situation. 8U And the piano, hnngh.)
3. Wet Aftertaste (Sound something like when you've gotten into something deep, trouble. -shot- Somehow makes me think of the night life.. bars, pubs, illicit deals, wine -slapped-)
4. Bloodshed (Ohohoh, I love how dangerous this one sounds, like you've been trapped in something. XD Like a bunch of thieves rounding you up. 8U)
5. Morale Heartbeat (This is magnetizing too, with the scream-like sounds at the beginning and the bass rolls and the sudden piano.. just makes me think of how much of a roller-coaster life is. And there are times you just want to give up and die, burn everything to the ground and shooting yourself in the temples hahaha! XD The piano is just so chill and awesome BD)
Hello! I don't have anything to say in my signature. Hahaha.

This turned out to be better than I'd expected. (No offense meant by that, I just have very high VN standards.) I gladly played through it enough times to see all the endings.

So, as my reading to my mom continues, we've finally reached the true path!
Mom's favorite character seems to be Raphael for most of the game XD
We once a text message going on like this. I told her that I would read her more when I got back from school.

Me: You seem to not like how Raphael keeps dying, THAT MUST MEAN HE'S YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER, YES?
Mom: ....yes.
Me: Let's see if he remains your favorite character when this is over!
Mom: I don't like that....

I seriously almost burst out laughing on the bus XD

Anyway, she seems to really be enjoying the story, plus it gives me an excuse to read it aloud with inflection, heh <3 She is definitely generally confused, even with all the pieces of the other path, but I promised her the true path works as the "answer arc" so no question will be left unanswered (provided you get either the True ending or the Yin-Yang ending). She is getting fairly frustrated, especiailly when I won't tell her when she has a question "you'll find out" is all I say, muahahaha XD
Sharing something you enjoy a lot is an awesome kind of experience, 'cause it's fun to watch their reactions, LOL
