☆*☆ Hatsukare☆Renai Debut Sengen ☆*☆
The heroine Shinomiya Yui is at her 2nd year of high school and she felt that she has wasted the first year by having her life in a dull and uninteresting kind of flow. Seeing on how her first year has been a waste, she is determined on wanting to have an exciting school life. And this means falling in love! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
As to this, there is a rumor going on around about a jinx that if she goes to Asumi Hill and she and her partner kisses during the fireworks display at the summer festival, the couple will be together forever.
Basically, in this game, you have all the freedom to talk to anyone and by doing that, you can get topics which will be used in the Dokyun talks to raise up your guy’s affection (and also get extra scenes/ date scenes). While in a guy’s route, be sure to never miss a heart event or dokyun event to get the best ending, though in doing the good ending, you can skip all that and just focus on the red heart events.
In doing a guy’s best or good ending, you can also simultaneously go for another guy’s friend ending to help save time. (〃￣ω￣〃ゞ
Though the gameplay seems quite difficult/confusing at start but once you get the gits of it, you will not even need a although, just have to remember some key points in getting the endings.
╰( ´・ω・)つ──☆✿✿✿✿✿✿ DOKYUN TALK!!!! The most adorable thing I have experience….NOT. Sure it IS the most adorable thing ever, BUT for Yuuji to say “Dokyun!” to “DO—-KYU—-N <3<3” Oh good lord no.(ノД`)・゜・。 Its like seeing Ranmaru from Uta pri being like Reiji!
Another most adorable thing is where you go around the school with this chibi version of the heroine and go search for topics or approach them for their events. Each day is divided into 3 time periods (Morning, Lunch Break and After school), and each week MWFS (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays) are the only days that you can play, TTHS (Tuesdays and Thursday) are rarely used and Sunday is your save point (more like a day where in you can save, load, check their routes and their Love Status.
In Hatsukare, there are 3 ends, (Friendship, Good and Best). Doing the friendship end is usually done when you are trying to capture the 6 Main heroes. Good end is when your heart in the status is smaller than the heart shaped… thing X’D
Still…. ━Σ(ﾟДﾟ|||)━ That dokyun shout with a serious or bad boy. It just shatters the very image till its dust and the only way to pick them up is with a vacuum.
ASBSOLUTELY FREAKING ADORABLE!! ❤ ❤ (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧its like an Otome game that has the adorable 3d chibi type of sprites of harvest moon! （=´∇｀=
The sprites were also gorgeous and colorful! Totally brings out the high school feeling. Also with the CGs (thoguh why is it that Mizuki-sensei is down by 2 CGs?!?! (；￣Д￣）/)
Hatsukare have the same artist as UtaPri so similarities may be spotted.
Chibi! The main feature of this game is the CHIBI. ε=ε=(っ*´□`)っ COME TO MAMA. YOU ADORABLE YUUJI. Anycase, the art is okay, nothing much to note about. Its lively and brings some insight on how a school life should be. (unlike Starry Sky, emo-shit)
Sound system was great! It fitted the whole scene of a fresh and lively high school life that HoneyBee should have made! ヽ(￣д￣;)ノ
The opening was also great! （＾Ｏ＾☆♪ Never thought Kaji Yuuki can do that kind of voice (since his character song in Storm Lover made me want to throw my phone out).
Loved the opening, but for me nothing beats Shinobi no Koi’s opening.
Its a veyr typical cast of shoujo but having the characters have those kind of different personalities blinds out the fact that the story is not unique so who cares! (〃￣ω￣〃ゞ And i think that if you are looking for a highschool setup Otome, Hatsukare nailed it! （*/∇＼*）Unlike in Starry Sky where good characters are
forced thrown some emo fagging shit, Hatsukare made it more realistic that “if you have a problem, go face it forward” not going emo-here, emo-there…GOD HoneyBee! have mercy on the characters! (ᇂ∀ᇂ╬)
(ↀДↀ)⁼³₌₃ Oh just lovely. I swear this game is totally addicting. Each character has his own little simple problems, but its not that heavy dosage like Starry Sky. You can totally feel the school atmosphere, as stated in the gameplay section. ←～（o ｀▽´ )oΨ each and every event is like watching a glimpse of a normal students life. Its too bad that it only end at 3 months. Just loved the interaction between characters especially with Shun. Anything do to with shun—- oops. I will not spoil you guys! (●´艸`)
STARRY SKY SHOULD FOLLOW THIS KIND OF PLOT. NOT SOME HEAVY EMO SHIT when the character profiles are excellent.
TOO SHORT! NEED MORE! ლ(⌒д⌒ლ) It should have a longer range of time or at least give more date scenes!
The characters were really entertaining and hilarious that i didn’t even hate any of them! I loved the cast even the Gay (Sakuya) character! Annnnddd i did not fell asleep unlike in some games
*cough* Starry Sky cough* My favorites are Shun and Mizuki of course (can’t seem to resist that two face type of character “ψ(｀∇´)ψ)
And that DOKYYUUUUNNN ❤ I swear Suzumura is enjoying himself in that Dokyun talk! ヽ(○´∀`)ﾉ♪ and I can totally imagine Miyano wanting to join in on the fun （*/∇＼*） ..Though there are some characters whose image was brutally ruined by Dokyun—but who cares…ヾ(*´ー`)ノ it was hilarious– their reactions were priceless! (*≧▽≦)ﾉｼ))
I just love this game, the only thing that’s bad about it is that it ends after 3 months has passed. Daichi is definitely the funniest and the most weirdest character next to Tamaki fom Ouran Highschool Host Club. THAT DOKYUN KILLED THE VERY IMAGE OF A TOUGH GUY of Yuuji. Still ヽ(´∇´)ノ (∇´ノ) ヽ( )ノ (ヽ´∇) ヽ(´∇`)ﾉ not that I’d kill someone over it, just knock someone’s else lights out. My favorite is Yuuji of course and Mochi.
Please play it! I recommend you too! Then share it with us! Comment below your thoughts!
