7/10 “it’s okay I guess”
So I’ve always shat on Tomoyo After without knowing much about it, mostly to fool around, but somewhat because I couldn’t see myself liking it, since it’s porn and a character I actively dislike being central.
It hated me in turn, with every…acquisition of it I made, it constantly refused to BGM or play the opening, my enthusiasm to play the VN due to all this was at laughably low levels.
Then one day it worked.
okay sure why not.
Pleasantly surprised. The writing was fairly decent and Takafumi in general being a very high point in just about every way, great dude and his arc was the best part.
Tomo was…a bit plot devicey, but oh well, nothing wrong with her.
No see the problem is Tomoya, who the hell is this? This isn’t the Tomoya I know, why does he care so much about family, this one shouldn’t have had that development, this one should think the exact opposite, bugged the hell out of me. It’d be fine if it wasn’t Tomoya, but they insist it is.
Also this thing
''BUY ME SOME ICE CREAM"
GOD SHUT UP ABOUT THE GOD DAMN ICE CREAM.
Yeah it get it it’s moe or some shit to give your girl a favorite food but every god damn scene I swear.
Calm the fuck down on the Ice Cream, it’s so annoying.
I did warm up too Kanako though, her introduction was unbelievably bitchy, but she won points back later with charm.
However I picked that picture for a reason, because I agree with the quote featured. She really feels insignificant to the plot compared to the other four.
Oh, and I don’t give a shit a about Tomoyo but I established that, all this did was give me a bit more of a dislike of her. At least they depicted her as the ‘bad guy’ for a bit rather than trying to shove ‘oh man she’s so perfect’ down my throat the entire game.
Oh right and the porn is shameless and pathetic.
The After After.
’‘Oh crap we forgot to shit on our characters enough, that’s what sells right"
’'Oh it’s fine I’ll just take a big steaming dump"
Why did we need this? What was wrong with ending it in the scene before this? What does this bring to the experience, other than giving it a downer ass ending. Why did we need a downer ass ending? Why did you put FUCKING PORN right in it?
The After After is a flawed, unnecessary, addition that serves no good purpose. The VN would be better off without it.
tl;dr: I won’t seriously shit on Tomoyo After, but I won’t sing it’s praises.
