I've never read a VN where I loved the characters instantly. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't gone through this yet, but I will say that I love your characters. From the Rowdy Ketchup Man to the Quiet Mayo baby, they're all so unique!
And, while I'm here, it took me longer than I'd like to admit to realize that Piper is supposed to be Pepper. I think it was even outright stated once and I still didn't get it!
Anyway, long story short, I love this and will be waiting with bated breath for the full version! Keep up the amazing work!
