I made a conscious decision to not get involved with this one. Years ago, when I had more time, I’d probably have been interested by the kind of micro-managing this game appears to require, but I just can’t be bothered with it all these days, it’s too much of a time-sink.

Also, I don’t like the cost and the amount of waiting time for delivery.

But mainly, the designer’s style just doesn’t appeal to me. I’m not a prude in the slightest, but I find this particularly genre of wide-eyed hyper-sexualised schoolgirl figures demeaning and puerile. Yes, I know it’s anime influenced, but I don’t like anime either, and particularly that sexual aspect of anime and manga. That stuff all seems uncomfortably obsessive, childish, misogynist and fixated on tits and bums and tiny underwear to me. That’s not the kind of fantasy I’m interested in having in my games!

So it all adds up to no interest from me. Though from the huge success of the game, I seem to be in a minority.
