No spoiler review!
One week before the release of this game, the Cero B scared me off so I had it preordered and cancelled twice. But in the end, I found out it was Gold Rating, and mini games are waaaaay up my alley so why not!
This game reads more like a sports manga than an otome game, though naturally so, since it started out as a manga series anyway. If you’re looking for lots of cute love scenes and moe-able characters or good writing about the complications of having a crush on someone, you ain’t gonna find it here. But in return, what you get is (quite) a realistic story of how a team that was almost broken up gets motivated to run for each other and end up with good memories of a sport they once abandoned.
Also, for once, high school boys act like high school boys with their silly (but funny) play acts, dreaming that the heroine kissed them intensely(lol) and getting teased by the older people in the game. Strangely, even though the love between the characters are not obvious, it sits well with me because it’s a very typical portrayal of relationships where kids spend time with each other, knowing each other and helping each other out then getting together. All good.
A little bit about what Stride is: Continue reading
Never play an otome game for its mini game. New life lesson added to 1) never play an otome game unless interested in at least 4 of the playable characters. ***Rant ahead, be warned.
While the common route was rather entertaining in its own way, the scenario writing and interactions between the characters were boring as hell. The game is all about the world from a 16 yr old’s pov – too much of giving people too much credit for what they do and too much good in the supposedly ‘bad’ characters. The world doesn’t work that way I’m sorry, and it’s too much even for an Otoge. Continue reading
Another non-spoiler because sorry I am too lazy to write out the summary for such a long game and honestly the character routes are not worth writing about. I actually forced-skipped through them except for MinJye and Souta.
Possession Magenta in a nutshell:

Whoa that was a helluva long title. (^_^;) レジェさんの純粋愛の物語ですか。。。そうですか。そうですか？
Hello, it’s me again. I planned to do one title everyday but I think someone else has done the introductions for Criminale so you will not hear from me again till 14/15 August. What’s going on?
You’ll see. (・∀・)
So………. Not a very well-boding title for a fairytale-like story. But ‘Sacrifice’ appears to be some kind of group/place(?) rather than the verb of being a hero. And it’s going to be kind of sad:
I hope my gut feel.
So the introductions state that it is a pure first love (Fairytale) story with the collaboration of RejetX YutakuII(Eguchi Takuya & Ono Yuuki) X Avex. The art looks like a children’s picture book! I remember seeing this artist somewhere before but I can’t remember at the moment m(__)m
