❓ It's based on an erotic visual novel, so keep it in mind while watching it. I have read about the visual novel in "Otaku: Japan's Database Animals" by Hiroki Azuma, which is a serious book about cultural anthropology, postmodernism, popculture and the mindset of people (and especially otaku) nowadays. To explain it simply, the author used this game as an example of how people nowadays see the world not as a single story, but as a set of separate stories in which they can participate and which they can choose. The problem with this anime is that the game was better. Studio feel seems not to be very good at creating coherent plots and it shows in this anime as well. Also the characters in the game better matched the events. It's not a bad anime, but I think it's lost potential. Are you sure you don't want to play the game instead of watching this? I am not sure yet, if I watch it or not. Probably I will until the bad elements in the plot start to annoy me.
