Animal Lover reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
So, immediately say that I really liked the novel and it is definitely recommended to read to those who are not lazy and wants to spend time with pleasure. And now in detail. First of all, I want to say that, despite everything, this story should be taken more as a comedy with elements of fantasy, and not as a Otome. I was seriously afraid that it would be a typical otome with a pseudo-zoophylical bias, which is a lot. But No, it's okay here. This is an interesting and very addictive story about a girl who will encounter a rather unusual personalities. The Narrative is alive, and it is difficult to remain indifferent. And you believe in what happens, you believe in characters. A Lot of jokes that do not look tense, but just spontaneously appear during the conversation. Because We all sometimes say pretty funny things without even realizing it. And here we deal with several people who have completely different characters, but spend a lot of time together (almost round the clock). Their disputes and attempts to know each other better, making plans and simply entertainment-all this sparks an extraordinary interaction between the characters, which looks natural. This is in no small degree caused by the fact that each character is very well spelled out. In The course of the story we learn a lot of details about them: Their families and friends, their interests and plans for the future, their problems and desires. And each character is unique. Very well implemented element "Hello to their past": characters who lived long before our time, are in the present (2017) and face not only unfamiliar places and people, but also just progress. This theme was raised in many films/books/substitute-necessary, but often characters from the past look like idiots because they do not perceive the reality around themselves properly. In this game, the characters react adequately. Yes, they're shocked. But they do not brake on each incomprehensible word, they do not compare everything with the pre-flood technologi, etc. It is difficult to convey words, but they behave in a humane way. And it pleases. And They also have certain traits peculiar to their time. That is Why there is not only a difference of characters, but also a upbringing/culture/worldview. More "Vitality" characters gives a drawing. She's good. Although the screenshots can be doubted this, but the graphic component here is made on "excellent", although small flaws can always be found. Drawing of characters is made in a cartoon style, partly even caricaturnom. Especially want to highlight a large number of [very expressive] emotions that can affect the faces of the characters, because of which all the dialogues look particularly authentic. Romantic component is present, it is yes. But It does not drag on the plot. Almost the whole game here is a "friendly" line with a few awkward/obscene/too-personal moments. Initially It seemed that the whole game would be a typical "please the guy to like", but no. Especially the first elections pushed to this idea, but later there goes a lot of difficult elections or just humorous. Seriously, a lot of the elections are mixed on their own. Make a choice: "Well No, b * * * *"/"On * * * this". Yes, such a peculiar election here come from time to time. But I left the subject. In Short, romance is evident by the end. In The pair (not the shortest) dialogues and epilogue. And they go beautiful CG. Everything looks concise and natural. But do not think that the game is superficial and is built only on the sea. Because the characters are so alive, the stories are not alien to depth and detail. There are also conflicts: serious and not very. There is a drama. There is a tragedy. Because you are serious about what is happening. Of the minuses I can only mention a couple of small bugs:-some replicas are signed as said by the characters, although they are part of the narrative. It might be a little confusing. -Once the character was to be naked, and depicted was dressed. It didn't affect anything at all, but again it was confusing. In General, it is recommended to everyone. This game is worthy to read it.
