Hello again, Neko here. Seems it is time for me to comment on another game, this time eden*.
Oh hey, another minori title! I’ve actually been looking forward to this one for a good while, because, well, Sion is freaking adorable.
Main reason I was requested to test this is to play the role of the sorriest excuse for a military advisor ever. Spent time in the Navy during a time when we actually were not at war. Bombed Iraq once, but that was normal, even then. Seeing as this has a bit of a military theme/setting, I helped with getting terms and stuff right (granted, the Navy is a waaay different beast with entirely different terms and traditions, and I had to look stuff up during this…but hey, I was available…). My first challenge has to do with the protagonist, Warrant Officer Haruna—explaining what the hell a Warrant Officer is.
Okay, two answers… First, I’m not sure if even the military knows for sure.
Second, from a fellow sailor: they’re gods, transcended from enlisted and not accepted by officers. Like Hercules.
Basically they are experts in their given fields. It is very hard to explain, and they are very rare, and tend to be old, owing to the sheer experience needed. WO Haruna is very, very, very young to be one. He is either exceptionally good, or they are desperate. Possibly both.
Aside from checking military related stuff, I quite enjoyed this project. As usual, minori’s visual, voice and music quality are outstanding. For once, I also found every character to be quite likeable.
Despite the end of the world scenario, and some heartrending moments, I found the overall message to be quite positive as well.
To close, I will admit one thing. One screenshot made me want to test this for years. One which I shall provide without context, just like DS did with me…
Have fun, Neko signing out~
