O M G~~~ Thank you so much for creating this game! It's such a hard-warmer <333 Live for the 70's Shoujo Manga style\(≧▽≦)/

I absolutely adored all the characters & and Charm became one of my fav otome's heroines â™¡ She's just so sweet, warm but also funny and cute!!!

  1. I WOULD BE MORE THAN INTERESTED IN JUN'S ROUTE! 

Ready to camp here just to play it. Can't wait to see who his love interest will be (☆ω☆)

 2. I'd love to play & get to know more about both Kira and Rei! They are very interesting already so it would be nice to get more of their background or even see their romance plot lines *3

sending love and support *: ・゚ thank you all again!

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback! Originally, Charm's romantic interests were going to be Asa, Jun, and Kira. But I could only tackle Asa's route due to time constraints. 

If I do end up writing again for this universe, it would either be a Jun/Charm route or a sequel focusing on Kira and Rei. Rei would be the new heroine, if ever.

All the shoujo vibe and story is so good!!! I love the art and Charm is the cutest character 🥺❤️ I want to marry her 😳

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts!

Pleaseee give us a Jun route!! Loved the game, the art is so beautiful!

Your vote for a Jun route is noted! Thank you so much!

What about routes for Kira and Rei?

(+1)

I was originally planning to write routes for both Kira and Jun, but had to confine myself to Asa's route due to time constraints. So if you saw sparks flying between Charm and Kira, you were picking up on my original plans for them!

However, if I do end up writing stories for this universe again, Kira and Rei will likely be the central characters.

The moment I saw the title, it suddenly remind some of those old stories in wattpad lmao. Good old days. I enjoyed the game though 

Haha, Wattpad didn't cross my mind when I came up with the title since I've yet to read a story from that platform! I'm an AO3 and FF Net enthusiast. But I'll take your word for it!
