The Best Eroge Ever Review
This review is only for the first four episodes. See my The Best Eroge Ever review for my opinion of the last four episodes.
As you may or may not be aware, this is a pigeon otome dating sim. In other words, you are a human girl attending St. PigeoNation's Academy and you must make friends with the male pigeons there (and for some reason you have stats).
So the overall experience of reading The Best Eroge Ever ended up something like this: the first half was constantly "nice" and not a lot else, but as I neared the end of Dream the story finally started to gain some kind of momentum, and it continued building it up very regularly until the final tearjerking climax, which is quite unforgettable. Though I never felt very much surprise or dramatic tension, I also never felt disappointed by their absence. And all the subplots did get their proper closure.
The slice of life and comedy in the common route has some fairly silly heroines, a quirky yet nuanced writing style, plus a calm yet mystical atmosphere from both the town and the nice fluffy story to occupy time until the genre shift. Somehow it manages to be a highly immersive and relaxing experience that makes you eager to learn more about the town's secrets after the plot kicks in.
