The Best Eroge Ever Review

Typical premise: the protagonist's club is in danger of being disbanded, so they have to do something productive for once to save their club. For various reasons, that something is competing in a battery-powered glider tournament, but this VN is still primarily about the slice of life and character interaction, as you would expect.

It's kinda tricky to pin down an opinion on this one since the quality seems to zig-zag on a pretty regular basis. For instance, Kano's route is pretty forgettable. Minagi's is nice and sad but then drags on at the end. On the other hand, the ultimate ending of the true route (arguably part 3 of Misuzu's route) is such an amazing tearjerker it seems as though it single-handedly makes the whole VN great. But you probably already knew that.

Significant portions of each episode are spent on characterization and world-building that doesn't always directly contribute to the core mystery, so some people might find that infuriating. And of course, if you aren't the type who enjoys thinking very hard about a story as you read it, you're going to miss out on a massive part of what makes this VN exceptional.

The most consistent part by far is the comedy. Though nothing phenomenal, it is always amusing, and sometimes even hilarious (my personal favorite was Sora's unintentionally silly narration in the true route). Plus, the slice-of-life/comedy portions of the VN never overstay their welcome.

Score: 7.5/10

Polarization: (-52.9/+31.5)

Routes/Endings Played: All
