Some say that the main selling point is the all star voice acting cast, however Tokyo Babel‘s writing is what sold me on it. There was never a wasted actor who only had a few lines because their character was irrelevant.

Even now I can’t decide my favorite character between the heroine Kugutsu Sorami or the side character Camael.

Well, after finishing this, he ended up collaborating with TYPE-MOON, writing such works as Fate/Apocrypha and collaborating on Fate/Grand Order. Fate/Stay Night is what got me into visual novels in the first place, so that just made me doubly excited for what lay ahead. Continue reading

But it bears repeating: this is a truly special VN, and there’s really nothing quite like it. Continue reading
