(Yeah, I’m just going to leave t
he original localized title for “Kenka Bancho” since it’s part of the series)

I hear the anime just came out for this game! Haven’t watched it yet, but I guess the timing of this review is pretty good. I actually wasn’t planning on writing one but I decided to get off my lazy butt and just do it lol.

Fun fact: I played almost the whole game while I was on my trip in Japan. It seems to have been a good choice to try and get myself back into otome gaming with. I’m already playing my third game for this year, which if you look at my previous track record, is actually a lot of games so far.

If you’re in the mood for a cute game, this is definitely a good one to pick up! Review will be non-spoiler but I talk a lot about the game system in some detail.

On top of not playing the game consecutively, I also didn’t write the review right away (bad, bad idea) so it got even more lagged. I was originally going to do a more detailed description of plot but it just didn’t end up happening because I wasn’t focused and now I don’t have the drive or the freshness of the game to do it anymore. Therefore, I  decided that it was best to make a shorter post rather than not post something about it at all.

This is mostly a non-spoiler review. I introduce the plot premise but will not go into details about the characters and what happens in the routes/game (although I do give a template the plot generally follows in the first section so if you want no real plot info then just skip the first section).
