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.

Game Review: https://jyuuguchi.wordpress.com/2014/12/06/senjou-no-enbukyoku-waltz-review/
A young girl’s village and her father is taken away one day.
In place of that, she obtains a ‘power’, a sword that she can protect the ones important to her, which is a “demon sword”. With such a “power” that can shake the state of affairs of the country, she’s forced to live life on the battlefield. The country places her in the military school named “Nirvana”. There, country or race is not disclosed and young boys and girls who excel at fighting gather to compete. The heroine meets various people there and forms deep bonds with them and finds herself a place that she once lost. This is a story of such a girl and of “the demon sword that speaks.”
About the demon sword:
There’s a strange legend in Otesia about the demon sword. The person who wields it has so much power that it was once recorded in history that a country’s war was resolved just by a single person. But that person must have a strong resolve or the sword will take Continue reading
