No Thank You!!! is an absolute delight to play. This game is so fun, and so cute, and so incredibly heartbreaking, all at the same time. I laughed, I cried, and I could not get this game out of my head.
The game starts with the protagonist saving someone from getting hit by a car, which prompts him to offer the protagonist a job at his bar, which doubles as a private detective agency. Depending on the route you take, he forms bonds with the different members of the bar as he attempts to help solve the different cases the agency takes on.
The protagonist, Haru, with his terrible memory, amnesia, and attempts to fit into a bar/detective agency, is incredibly cute and fun. He is surprisingly talented at a number of unexpected things, and his air of innocence makes him an extremely sympathetic character. I found him delightful, and one of my favorite parts of the game was learning more about him, and learning to see him in a new light.
The options for romancing were amazing. After I’d played all of the routes, and all of the variations of them, I thought very hard about what my favorite route was, and I could not come to an answer. All of the routes are interesting, heartbreaking, and adorable at different times, and each of them left me feeling hopeful, if not completely satisfied. Also, all of the dudes in this game are smokin’ hot, and Haru’s reactions to each of them are great.
My favorite part of the game is the slow reveal of information. Starting the game, you think it is going to be exactly as advertised: a fun, quirky, romcom with a bunch of sexy dudes. While this is true, the game takes on so much more than this, which I can’t give away without spoiling a bunch of things. My recommendation is PLAY THIS GAME! I promise you won’t be disappointed!
A few more fun quirks of the game: it has a body hair slider! You can set how much body hair you want everyone to have. This was a fun option to have, although on my playthrough, I just set everything to max body-hair, and thought it was great!
I love love love this game. ;_;
