Norn9 Last Era Otome Game Review

(non spoiler review)

PoseMage coming in 4 days so I really had to get this game done. I swear I spent my entire Saturday and Sunday on this and what a great fandisc! I have always been a fan of the original game and bought all the Radio discs and event DVD, and am really glad I played this because it only made me love this series more!

This loading screen really summed up the game well, I’d say.

The game was unexpectedly volume-y, with lots of development in the relationships and my favourite kind of bittersweet scenes and the occasional cuteness. I have to say that I hated Masamune in the original game because he was a perv, but I really liked him in this game. Too bad that he still got 12th place though haha. My favourites in the original were Sakuya and Natsuhiko but Continue reading

Norn9 – Review summary

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.  It’s tough being in that ambiguous age-zone where you have a growing want-list and a pathetic looking cash inflow.

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.
