The game is currently in development with Rui’s route currently out on beta (as of May 2020). This post will be updated as I play.

Read their Kickstarter update for Rui and Kouya respectively with my thoughts of Rui’s route after the cut!

Messages on Yosetti will be accepted until February 14 11:59PM while artwork and other submissions have until the midnight of February 16. All times are in GMT +9.

For those unfamiliar with Yosetti, read this! Feel free to forward any other questions in the comment section and I’ll try and help 🙂

Note: Featured image is from the old Ameba release. It’s no longer available. Coincidentally, some of the avatar items are for Shuu’s 2nd main story. While the poster avatar was for the… character popularity poll, I think? My memory’s a bit fuzzy xD

I’ll also update this entry with Ms. Nanami’s post when Ciagram receives the album!
You get to check out what went into the package ✨✨

P.S. The continuation stories will be getting an overseas release!
