I was extremely excited with the latest update to finally get to complete my full set of stories and finally play Tatsuro’s Main Story and Takudo’s Epilogue which is reviewed here. Having completed all the thieves stories and encountered Tatsuro in every story, I thought it was going to be really interesting to find out how exactly this love story played out.
Bascally, Tatsuro Togoshi is the your childhood friend whom is the detective in charge of catching the band of thieves called The Black Foxes. He is also madly in love with you and has been since you were children. The kicker is, like in the other characters stories you end up being forced to become a thief and join The Black Foxes! So I thought, ‘How will I be able to fall in love and be with Tatsuro in this story if he’s trying to catch me put me in jail?” Interesting huh =)
All in all I am very pleased with this story and I will get into detail after The walk-through. I suggest that you only use the walk-through if you are having problems getting the happy ending which wasn’t very hard for me (not like Riki’s that one was hard for me). Its a lot more fun to give the honest answers that you feel deep in your heart and find out what kind of ending you are rewarded with after.
Here are my walk-through answers to get a guaranteed happy ending:
- Whats Wrong
- Tatsuro’s the one working too hard
- Running an errand for boss
- ugh… my head
- He could be the rising star of the PD
- I’m Fine
- We live Together
- I wouldn’t even call her a rival
- tend to his wounds
- help him
- Because I was Worried about him
- thanks for waking me up
- I love him
- you could at least lie
- can i have some sake
- If you have a reason I’ll forgive you
- you don’t have to be shy
- I didn’t blow up anything
- even if I wanted to I couldn’t
- don’t come any closer
- it’s not too late
Some small technical Errors I noticed while playing:
- some character errors – Instead of Tatsuro says Atsumu
- bathroom looks like museum, wrong background
I noticed it, but to me it wasn’t a big deal. Some people might be annoyed by it though.
Review Starts here! Don’t worry I will avoid the use of spoilers and try to give a thorough review without ruining it for them.
I really liked the storyline. There were a lot of twists and surprises and it was quite different from any of the other stories. In the beginning we don’t really know who the anti-protagonist is and that’s what makes this a good story. The struggles and rewards that occur in your relationship with Tatsuro really got me emotionally in this story. I loved Tatsuro’s personality more and more as I got to know him and see all different sides to his personality and the choices I was given in the story were good – Not too easy and not like insanely difficult to figure out.
When I play these types of games I always feel strongly that I should give my honest opinion in my choices the first time I play a story, instead of trying to get the happy ending right away. It’s more fun to see if my choices really lead to the happy ending or not. The MC’s personality was great in my opinion in this story, not too submissive but not too in your face. She’s very balanced, down to earth and rational, but does get emotional. I ended up getting the happy ending on the first try.
The other character’s such as the ULTRA STUPID detective that we meet later on really, really got on my nerves! Which is supposed to happen but , MAN! DID SHE EVER GET ME MAD! I wanted to scream at both her and Tatsuro. I totally want to punch that girl in the face. The frustration I felt actually made me enjoy the story more, and made it more exciting. For every moment I was angry or frustrated there were moments that took my breath away twice fold! Especially the special CG moments. Those were really good! Honestly the Facial expressions for Tatsuro I saw in other stories weren’t the greatest. However all the Picture rewards were really good pictures! TOTALLY TOOK MY BREATH AWAY! Sometimes I feel with some voltage games that some pictures really disappoint me but I loved every single picture in this route. I was happy with all of them, and I thought his short and sweet emails were touching and cute.
All in all This was a great route. Still not my favourite but he gets a 3rd place, losing to Takudo (1st) and Asumu(2nd). comparing just the CG art to the other characters he gets 2nd place only losing to the gorgeous Tsundere Takudo. Definately worth my money and one that I would enjoy to playing again!
