Hello, Konoi, and many thanks for the in-depth review.
I am glad to hear you enjoyed the game overall.
As for the names you mentioned, I would say that this is a fantasy game and I never really meant for any of the names to be directly held up to real-life counterparts. I drew from a mix of French, Spanish and Italian and plain just made some of them up. As someone has already pointed out, Frederique is the feminine spelling, as well - I just prefer it that way.
And sorry there was no kiss scene for the secret route - I wanted to leave that side of their relationship open to interpretation. But there was the scene after the tea party and then again after the boating so, CG wise, I think it turned out the raciest of all the routes. ^_^
Thanks for playing
