Okay, before we get into this review some explanation is needed because there is a reason I don’t follow a lot of otome or even straight-up romantic visual novels. Look, I’m not as vain as my massive ego would lead you to believe. I understand that there are some things in this world that aren’t made for me and that I will not enjoy if I attempt to get into it. I have knocked Twilight for its effect on Western media, but before I did I paid little attention to the series because I’m not a fourteen year old girl (or their Moms). In that same vein I understand that in the video game industry as a whole, not just VNs, there are certain genres that rarely change year to year. There is very little profit to be made experimenting with, for example EA’s Madden or even Activision’s Call of Duty. Every few years a major overhaul is done to refresh the franchise, however when you pick up CoD or any sports game you know what you’re getting into.
With that in mind strap on a comfortable helmet and sit back as we dig into teeth-rotting, mind-numbing sweetness that is Studio Sprinkles’Heartful Chance.
