Hayato lived an ordinary life until he wakes up one day with amnesia… and finds himself in a world closer to the video games he plays than the world he remembers.

Fetch quests? Skill points? Respawning after death? It’s all a bit much to accept. A mage named Shiori offers to help him find his way, and with her help, he learns how to fight monsters, perform fetch quests, and put items in a strange metaphysical space called an “inventory.”

Soon he’s ready to take on NPC quests! But the town of Lightshire is in danger from deadly monsters—monsters that can kill you for real. Where did they come from? What is behind the attacks? Hayato and Shiori are determined to find out, and no matter what they encounter—from high-level dungeons to argumentative party members—they won’t stop until they learn the truth.

Ascendant Hearts reviews and comments

I liked this story, with a lot of humor and mockery compared to the world of RPGS. My only regret is the absence of a real date once the statement is made:/ At least the girl flies over and mentions a "date" but we can just imagine: x

The Painting is good, sprites are not only in the heroines. Fresh spots of humor, Characters original, at least, differ from the standard set in VN. There is a patch that makes the kg more adult, it lies on the site of the game. I do not give a Link, TK is rumored to have been looking at this koso lately.

I would like to put a positive assessment of the Vtka. A Cheerful beginning, good humor and pleasant characters. But, unfortunately, closer to the middle of the story begins to sag, repeat, and the ending is so generally skkomkan. Humor also disappears somewhere, reading becomes dull, interest disappears. It seems that either the authors were exhausted or the deadlines were pressed. In General, the attempt is good, but not.

Not a Bad visual novella, telling about the next guy who was in another world, where the rules of RPG. To Teach the wisdom of survival in this world, the Sweet magician Shiori volunteered... Beautiful backgrounds and characters, middle music. The Plot is normal and you can hardly remember what it was in the game in a month. In the middle of the passage of history and begins some graphofanism from the developer and read becomes boring to the junction story. A Few endings and three girls who can be romantic to choose from. If you want to take the game for the sake of candid scenes, there are almost no. And those that are-light erotica.

Game Summary: Playing Ascendant Hearts-> Go to Google-> Searching for nude-patch-> Not founded-> SHIIIIIIIIII... Fixed [ezouri.blogspot.ru] Otherwise, it is 9 (nine) hours of thoughtful reading on the theme of the stamps of the Onyx, coupled with the JRPG and the otaku. Or 4 (four) hours of reading diagonally with high-speed space-burning. "Isekay visual novel", as the Busurmane speak. Pictures of average quality, backs are not enough. The Characters are drawn as a medium, animation... Nuuuuu... It seems to be... Technically. The Story is better. Sometimes very funny. The Hihanki were working on the stamps. The Characters are convex. Four girls (four endings) with spelled lines. I Wish everything was quite linear, but still, I enjoyed the dialogues. Pretty good thing for 200 rubles. Perfect for Reading on the road on a high-speed train, or waiting at the airport, or for reading a hot summer day in the shade of an apple tree, or for 200-300 visits to a toilet stall.
