Fully in love with a Half-Hearted Knight – Shion Main Route – A Knight’s Devotion – Walkthrough Review
Voltage has been torturing me with Shion since this game came out. I honestly think he is the sexiest sprite of all the knights since the beginning so I wanted to play his story first, but couldn’t because they didn’t release him when the game first came out. So I waited patiently. Then finally the update came and I was so excited! I downloaded it right away and tried to buy it! But it bugged out, and I cried! They promised it would be fixed in 1-2 days but took a whole 4 more days of me waiting for it to be fixed. Once it was, I BOUGHT IT RIGHT AWAY.
Other than the Leafs playoff game (could you blame me, Our Toronto Maple Leafs haven’t made the playoffs in 9 years…and haven’t won the Stanley Cup since 1967!!!) that was going on nothing could stop me from playing this story. NOTHING.
I bought it like the others through the game app itself on my iPhone for $3.99 CAD plus tax. It is 16 chapters long and has a good ending and happy ending. There are also 5 reward pictures of Shion. I don’t know if it was a glitch or something wrong with my email but I didn’t get any emails from the characters in this game from this story. **Update** I did get emails the second time around!
Here are the answers I chose in order to get my happy ending:
- I don’t know what to say…
- That’s a cute nickname
- Then I’ll go too.
- You can’t fool me.
- I dont mind camping.
- Leave him be.
- Your face is close
- ask him.
- Can we talk more
- It’s my fault
- You don’t now the half of it.
- Shion. Help!
- Thank him for yesterday.
- The kings whereabouts
- Put up with it.
- you regret it. don’t you…
- of Course.
- Jump in the water
- I don’t know
- I want you to trust me Shion.
- Because of what happened 5 years ago?
- Please save Sylvia
- I wanted to save you no matter what
- I’m doing this for you
- I wont allow it
- how are you?
Shion turned out to be totally different then I expected. I kind of expected him to be super rude and super Tsundere. Instead he was just, downright lazy . He’s lazy about everything! And even when he’s fighting and supposed to be super cool he’s still lazy. I usually like Tsundere characters because they get worked up over everything and it ends up being cute. I find it very difficult to think of lazy as cute, no matter how I try to look at the person or situation. So I was really kind of disappointed with his personality. I love to read just like the Main character and Shion so that made me happy… and the story was good when I take his personality out of the picture. And yes, because his sprite is so cute in every version of him that he did end up making my heart flutter a little here and there. That made the story a little more enjoyable for me. However, all the way and even in the last chapter of the happy ending I didn’t feel like Shion actually had feelings for me, which also really disappointed me. I’m not sure if it’s because he’ too lazy to show them… because that seemed like the case, or he’s just too hung up in his past that he still doesn’t have very strong feelings for the main character still.
Basically this story wasn’t close to being romantic enough for me. It was just a regular story, and that was a disappointment, especially because I was so excited to play Shion at first and I was wanting to fall deeply in love with his hidden charm which in my opinion I didn’t really see any of in the story. It might be just me and my distaste to lazy lacklustre personalities – I mean it does really put me off a lot. I had a ex-boyfriend for 9 years who made me do everything for him he was so lazy – we started going out in grade 9 and he had ambitions but his laziness was far too powerful for him to get anywhere or follow his dreams or anything – which is ok in high school, but once I got into university and got older and found that he wasn’t changing, I ended up breaking up with him. He made me do everything (while he sat in front of the computer playing video games all day or slept for like 14 hours during the day) to the point where I felt more like his mom instead of his girlfriend. And to think If i married him and had to do that for the rest of my life and end up supporting him and having to push him all the time to do even small tasks – alarms started to go off in my head! It was a definite GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN situation! Anyways, that’s why I’m really put off when it comes to characters like this, who have really lazy personalities. Maybe other people like it, but I’m not sure. I am one of those active, get up and do something kind of people who are super enthusiastic with a lot of energy and I like to be around people who are also like that as well.
I thought the picture rewards were good – I mean Shion is really hot and they portray him and the MC really well in the photos. And perhaps he was too lazy to write emails to MC and that’s why I didn’t get any, or there’s a bug somewhere in the game that stopped me from getting emails. I’ll have to play Gaia to figure that out though. Gonna do that now!
*Update* About the emails! as I was making sure of my answers the second time around, I got emails this time and didn’t realize it till after I put up this post. I love Sylvia’s email the best. Girl knights are AWESOME. makes me want to pull an Utena and Screw being a Princess and become a Prince-Knight. When It comes to characters like Shion/Takuto etc. I think comparing them I like Takuto’s emails more. Shion’s don’t make my overies explode but they are nice enough.
I don’t think I would play this story again. This was probably my least favourite out of this game so far. I just have to play Gaia to figure that out, and although I didn’t like Kenny’s route very much either Kenny’s is still better in my opinion, but I will talk about that when I get around to posting Kenny’s Review. Which Ironically enough…I was too lazy to do when I first read his story. (not really lazy, I was really busy with a lot of projects and work, so I was just too tired to write anything at the end of the day)
