Well it’s the moment for this, let’s see. Here is where the magic begins.
Kud is a character “impossible to hate” with many different “likeable characteristics” , she’s a foreign, clumsy energetic, loli with bad english and really friendly, yeah nothing special or uncommon, well she is your average character, nothing else to add, let’s go with the route.
She has some troubles at school, so the busters start studying together in order to help her with her difficulties and of course help Haruka and Masato as well. Then the test are finished and Kud passed them luckily and by this time she and Riki develop their relationship and had to deal with bullying related to Kud being not Japanese.
Their bond get stronger after spending more time together and doing some kind of ritual until Kud receives a letter related with her mother. During the route Kud explained how she had been living visiting different countries together with her grandfather and the relationship with her mother, of course mentioning their jobs and some details. At this point things starts to get weird, since Kud had the chance to go with her mother, but the decision is up to you.
If you decided to stay with her, she will get traumatized and if you let her free things will not get better. In both situations Kud’s hometown is in riot and a crisis is taking place, Kud’s mother and her organization is taking all the blame. The citizens will make everybody pay the consecuences meanwhile back in Japan, Riki does not know what will happen, neither what he can do about; since their communication had been having a lot of troubles.
So Riki at the end of the day could save Kud and the 2 get back together, yeah really anticlimactic.
Let’s see the route had some good points, but yeah in the end everything is meaningless. The bad end looks way better than the good one, Kud’s bullying problem isn’t solved exactly, but she’s so good that she doesn’t care, ok let’s move on. Due to her personality she asked you about what she should do, ah well lets pass that but logically Riki should be the one accepting her decision to go or not. Then the moment she’s gone, she realized she had made a huge mistake and yeah she should have taken the bad end instead. Then of course giving her situation she try everything she could and fail, so she just decided to cry for Riki who magically saved her, yeah what a mess.
Do not misunderstand me, the problem was kinda ok, the route was not that bad neither memorable, but yeah everything ends good and happy, well not exactly but you get what I’m saying. Is good to face real problems, but if you’re not going to have a good resolution then why did you put them in the first place. Of course I’m not saying that the problem has a realistic solution, it was impossible the only outcome could have been Kud’s death. However, we get the happy ending, yeah this route was a downfall , could it have been better ? Maybe I’m not that sure, but yeah It was bad.
Thank you, very much
