Wow, just, wow. I expected this to be a sad visual novel but the way it was presented it beautiful. I would like to commend at the bakcground because not only does it look good and visuall cool, it also helps to serve as a narrative tool, especially to illustrate how Yuri views the world and helps to make Hima pop up to give emphasis on her. The writing, though sparse, is nice to read through, especially with how slow paced it is (which I think reflect to Yuri) and gives off that awkward vibes when the two converse with one another. The small hints about what was going on with Yuri and Hima's life matched well with the mood of the visual novel because if it kept dumping information about what was going on would have ruined the slowness of the visual novel, just seeing hints help illustrate how much things have been going on for the girls (Yuri being her mother and her cutting words and neglectful attitude while Hima's father being much more forward with his hurt towards Hima).

Below I'll be talking about spoilers for the 2 endings for the visual novel so please watch out for it!!!!










In Ending 2 where you don't read the letter, I could see how Hima's words from Ending 1 came true with how Yuri became hurt and betrayed by Hima for leaving her and never coming back. Where they both talked how people just use other people under the guise of friendship and that it was better to have been alone, so in that essence Yuri became what Hima thought of which is sad especially since neither got closure.

But in Ending 1 where we do read the letter, I was stoked to see it. Especially with how Hima just snapped and revealed her real personality where she was hurt, tired, and wanted it all to end. Especially with how she called herself out for using Yuri which was contradictory with what was written in the letter. I think Hima just wanted to hurt Yuri at the last moment, to push her away so when she did die Yuri wouldn't be wrought over her death and would instead view Hima as an awful person, therefore not giving sympathy to Hima's death. But the letter that Yuri read helped her understand that what Hima was saying was false. And the ending of this confrontation where they just repeat to each other "Okay" made me soft because it felt like this is the closure they needed, especially for Hima, just saying it to help her see that it can be reality-- And at the credits where we see the letter (and seeing how Yuri used Hima's words against herself what with nothing to lose and whatnot) and seeing the photograph where Hima and Yuri happy, especially with how bright Hima genuinely looks while Yuri is just relaxed and smiling, clinging to Hima's arm while leaning against one another, in Tokyo??? Oh my god I'm so happy they found their happy ending!! 

Great little visual novel! I enjoyed it and when I saw the title card after getting Ending 1 made me so happy!!
