1) Would you play this - even if the protag is a little questionable? >_>
Absolutely! It's refreshing to see a heroine who differs from the usual shy/plain//inexperienced/dormant persona. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just nice to have some variety. I quite enjoyed being able to flirt with all three bachelors. :p Mira is absolutely gorgeous too. Also, I wouldn't call her 'questionable', she's just a person who enjoys flirting. I'd love to see more scenes with her and her friends in the final game. I quite enjoyed the bits we've seen in the demo. There's an underrepresentation of female friendships in the media, but I do understand that they probably won't take priority in an Otome game.
2) Do any of the characters catch your eye? Also why
Zane immediately caught my eye, I love the jerks in Otome games, I can't even say why. There's just something gratifying about getting the meanies to like the player character. I like Kiron too. At first I thought he was going to be the teacher-type who gets embarrassed easily and is fairly innocent, but it was a nice surprise to see him going along with Mira's flirting. I totally didn't expect that! Maybe it's just me, but I feel like his eye proportions are slightly off. I feel like the placement of the right eye is a tiny teeny bit too low. Other than that, I think the artwork is beautiful. I've already mentioned that I like Mira's design, but really, everyone looks great. I especially like that the sprites seem so 'alive' with having them blink.
I don't have to say much about Daire since he's not really my type, personality-wise. My opinion on him might change later on.
3) Are you disappointed in VO having no mini-games?
I don't mind since I'm not a big fan of mini-games in the first place. In most of the VNs I've played which had them I felt they were either too easy or got repetitive fast, or both.
I do want to mention another thing about the dialogue. When the characters introduced themselves to each other, I found it weird that they did so by saying their full names. I feel like that doesn't really happen in a club setting. People there tend to just say their first name and be done with it. Wow, I feel really nit-picky now. I enjoyed the demo a lot and am really looking forward to the final product.
