I LOVE it. I like the more serious tone as opposed to the first game, though I'm pleased it still has a lot of the originals charming playfulness still. I'm so excited to see how the characters have grown over the past few years. I like being able to select the original traits up front as well as the route as I had a little bit of trouble guessing when the first game first came out and it took me a bit to figure out what option equaled what trait (except the super obvious ones).
So far Sophia is my fave for this game, though I loved the interactions between MC and everyone. Leo and her were really cute together, and I love the dynamic with her brother. I also really like the loveless marriage option, I'm a sucker for angst. It was great hearing our mom's reaction to our choices (she got so angry with all of mine haha) and meeting her in person, I can tell she's going to be a great (and fearsome!) character.
Looking forward to the rest of the routes, especially my fave of the first game, Bastien, I'm sure that choice will go over well with mom :P
Anyway, good luck and thank you for all of your hard work, I shall be stalking this game relentlessly!
