DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED THE GAME.
First of all, the art style is amazing! I loved the character designs as well. Also, I'm a huge sucker for cheesy dialogues and flirtatious comments, so I find the VN very well-written.
I decided to go for Mer last, since him being cute and meek during the ball made me think that I was going to enjoy his route the most and I live by the statement "save the best for last." So, I started with Snow, since I tend to get attracted to the seemingly playboy (but really just a big softy on the inside) type and I loved his route! I got the second ending with him first and it might have been my favorite out of all the endings (more explanations later). I proceeded to Zel and got the second ending for him as well. I didn't enjoy it completely, though, because I felt bad when Charming decided to abandon her responsibilities as the princess of the Lunar Kingdom. So, I replayed Zel's route and was very much satisfied when I attained the first ending with him.
Now, let's proceed with Mer. I REALLY REALLY like his character's personality--gentle, sweet, add the fact that he blushes easily (which is a big plus for me) and he's perfect! Well...aside from the fact that he tried to kill me while I was sleeping and it turned out that he was actually not the real Prince Mer. I mean, I knew that there was something suspicious about him from the start and that he wasn't all that he seemed to be, BUT I didn't expect something like this. The whole concept and his backstory is really great, but the ending felt rushed. I felt like Nicholl agreed too quickly to help after learning the fact that he tried to kill Charming. Also, the shift from the heavy conflict to the sudden happy ending felt really unnatural. Then, I got curious about Mer's second ending so I played it again to get it and I just...
I love this game for exceeding my expectations and going out of its way to be a unique otome, but Mer's route somehow left me quite unhappy. I get that the first ending with him was supposed to be the happy one, but after the tumultuous event that occurred right before that, it didn't feel romantic at all. If he didn't turn all batsht crazy, then I think I would have liked his route the most.
(I guess I'm just disappointed, because I wanted Mer's route to be perfect lmao)
Overall, this game deserves an 8/10. I look forward to more of your games! :-)
