I knew I'd love Giovanni, the first scene was enough to win me over~

The back-and-forth teasing was also cute and fun. Playful and witty while not being overdone or mean-spirited. Plenty of times where they were serious, yet also used humor to lighten the mood and cheer each other up.

There's little music, but I like the calm and gentleness of the music box. The ambiance of the waves also works well to give it more sound. I also really liked the "bonk" sound effect for some of the gags, ehehe. Just a little too silent at times, but I still think quietness works for the sad, lonely tone it had.
Wave transition is also nice touch.
At first, I was wondering if Azzurra was originally a mermaid and that being unable to walk really meant that it was because she didn't know how to use her legs. But then I started doubting that theory when Michele couldn't bring Azzurra with him to the hotel, like she was trapped there. And once Michele brought up her name to Giovanni and it made him uncomfortable, then it started to make sense and made me tear up a little when it was confirmed that she died. Still, I was excited because I really like the idea of Romance involving ghosts, something feels really romantic about how not even death can separate love.
In the end, Michele losing another girl that he fell in love with must be harsh, but with this encounter it seems like he's learning how important it is to let go, similar to how Giovanni learns to let go of the loss of his daughter. It's tragic, but still sweet.
Glad to see you finally tell the story you've been wanting to write! Was definitely worth reading and I'm glad I took the chance!

By the way, there are some grammar errors that I caught that I'd be willing to give you a hand with fixing. I already took screenshots to keep track of them.
If so, let me know how we can figure it out. Maybe I can send you a list of sentences with my edits, or you can send me the script file and I can send it back with comments and suggestions.

I enjoyed this VN a lot! The beginning felt a bit slow, and the gag with Azzurra not being able to stand up felt like it went on for longer than it needed to, so I was a little bit iffy about it at first, but as I continued playing it I got super attached to the characters. (Especially Giovanni - it's really hard not to like someone who's such a genuinely nice guy after everything he's had to deal with.) I liked the development of the relationship between Michele and Azzurra.
I'm a huge sucker for stories that have a ghost falling in love with a living person - it always, always, always makes for a really sad but sweet story, and I'm so glad that he was able to help her and Giovanni, and himself, move on because of it. The sex scenes were fantastic; they were tastefully illustrated and written and really added to the way Azzurra and Michele's relationship developed, so it wasn't just sex for the sake of sex. (Although sex in the ocean is just an A+ fantasy tbh so I probably would have still enjoyed it quite a bit even if it was.)
And oh man oh man okay I don't know if you did this on purpose or not, but the way that the whole thing started with Michele trying to give Azzurra CPR - so like, literally breathing life into her - and then ended with HER breathing life into HIM so that he could make it back up to the surface? What an absolutely amazing CYCLE NARRATIVE like dude I was ready to write a whole ass scholarly essay about it!!! it was just so poetic holy shit
So yeah, really enjoyed this! I'm not a huge fan of horror but I'll definitely be looking into Creepy Lily when it comes out. (:

Thank you Zelan, I'm really happy that you gave it a chance and liked it in the end. You're right, the first part could use some work. And let's just say that what you talk about in the spoiler was a happy accident :D Although I tend to look for circular narratives whenever I can.
