My thoughts about Sho’s track. It’s ecchi. Seriously. Nothing short of R18. I swear. Though it doesn’t make a difference if you don’t understand Japanese… since all you’ll understand are the chu~chu sounds. And my favourite line from hi track is…. “What suits the both of us is not walking under the sunlight together…. But holding breaths in the darkness and entangling ourselves…” It seems so dark and sad.
Please buy a copy of the CD to enjoy it! They are available on a variety of websites including Amazon, Animate Online Shop and other international stores.
The story opens with Sho (Sho Katsu Riou) narrating how the emperor lost his place of power since the whole country was undergoing a period of war, and many Generals aimed to be the next emperor whether they were famous or not. Many of them failed or were assassinated or died from illness. Sho says he admires them since whether they lived a short life or not, they saw dreams and shone brightly. He then says he can’t fight and wonder what he should dream about, and that called ‘the sleeping dragon’, he wonders will he really live sleeping. But one day, a dream appeared in front of him…..

Just now I took a look at my bank statement and I went like (； ･`ω･´) (´；ω；｀)ｳｯ… ヽ（´ー｀）┌
Everytime spring in Japan comes, they release a load of games and goods, which also equals to my enormous cash outflow, and especially this spring Rejet released 4 new series of dummy-head situation CDs.

Enough of my ranting. It’s review time for my super-backlot Norn9.
Norn9 seems to be an experimental mix of futuristic X hero clan X some love thrown in X mystery X 1D evil guy X fairytale X world war. The bulk of the prologue was from Sorata’s point of view, a young boy from the present world, who suddenly got poofed 100 years back in time to the Taisho era, where he meets a strange girl and ends up on a round futuristic ship called Norn. It is revealed that everyone on the ship has a superpower, and so does the weird girl that brought him to the ship. Sorata’s role ends when he decides which heroine to follow. Rather than an otome game, it’s more like a shounen manga from the point of view of a girl made into a game. And I enjoyed it despite its weird and complicated setting. And there are random CHICKS on board that play the role of doctors, cooks, cleaners, etc, which don’t make sense at all, and how the characters understand what they say is a mystery to me. In some routes the Sorata is even made to live with them rofl.
