Early Access Review At first I was a bit concerned because of the price. I used to play Otome Games via iphone, where you can purchase a story for only 3,49€. But after playing some time I can say this game offers a lot more possibilities. I like the Idea of planning you week via schedule. Reading ingame E-Mails and going shopping are also nice gimmicks that finish the game experience. The story itself is in the first hours nice to read but not too exciting. I think, it'll get more interesting by the time. The characters are very individuell and charming. Love it!

Early Access Review One of the best Visual Novels I've ever played. Even if it is still in Beta and spins that a bit with the Achievements. The Graphics are simply fantastic, anyone who doesn't like this Drawing Style shouldn't play it. Add to that these totally different and each great worked Out Storylines. Depending on what you choose, the Behavior and Conversations with the different Characters and Fringe characters change. There is a lot of Patience and Empathy in question, but if you get it right, expect one, for each of the 4 Main Characters, personal End. A great Otome-Game! 11/10 Points.

Early access review friends of the Visual novels, Hello! I waited, waited a long time... that he is on promo ahah! And now that I've played it, I really wonder why I waited, because it's worth its price. The music is good, the graphics are really nice. The characters really have their character and you are not going to unlock the successes by the biggest of the chances. The story is more sought after than in some other Visual novel. Here you play as the daughter of a pro makeup artist who follow her mother's steps. I warn you right away, you are not going to have fun with the color palette, to disfigure every person who passes you in the hands (unfortunately ^^). In any case, fans of the genre, go ahead!

Early access review I try, try again and try again... I fell asleep on countless times too... I want to say that it is for a really young audience, even if basic, the otomes games are more for the young audience, there are certain that I really aprecie, from for their humor, their history etc... For this game, I would say that you really have to be a teenager, it's a pity, I thought it could have had much more potential, put aside with one of the character I find a little more mature (but it was wanted, a bit like a teenager who fantasizes about her teacher). This is an early access again, so maybe other item will come.. But I don't think it passes the threshold of teenage or young adult in order to be able to play it. Otherwise English is relatively easy (is very zero in English), sometimes I have to use a translator for vocabulary but in general it goes on widely. CA could really have been a game more interreating the shot, I want to say, for the lovers of Visual novel (with a lot of history etc.) this game is not really for you, and for young ladies or who likes the "very young" side of an otome... Wait for promotions:)
