「Next time it won’t be just a toy…」
Hello, hello! I hope all of you are doing really well! I wanted to go ahead and start knocking more guys out of the park so here is another one for you!
This is a review for the quiet but handsome Shusuke Asano's Main Route. This review contains very tiny spoilers, but don’t worry, they won’t ruin the playing experience! Thank you so much for reading!

SAY THE MAGIC WORDS:
Aaaaah Shusuke! I had been delaying playing him for a while since I had been busy, and now that I had the time I thought I might as well jump straight through it. I love quiet, mysterious guys with gentleness hidden underneath their poker faces. They always turn out to be some of my favorite routes!
Now I do have to say that this review is probably gonna be shorter than the others I have written before because, although I tried very hard to begin formulating paragraphs and what I was gonna say as I played, I just couldn’t seem to think clearly.
Please forgive me! It isn’t that I didn’t love Shusuke, it’s just that I can’t seem to put my thoughts together, but I just know that if I write this review another day instead of right after I play it, I will forget everything that happened.
So I’m gonna do my best to just go with the flow and see what it brings me! Thank you for your patience!
I will say that I was a teensy bit disappointed with Shusuke’s route. He was one of the guys I was really, really looking forward towards because of his cute face, so my expectations hung pretty high and they sadly were lowered as I played through it. _(」∠ ､ﾝ､)_
The other route I played was Tennoji’s which I ADORED so I came here expecting a route that could live up to his and sadly, I didn’t get that.
Shusuke as a character, is fantastic though. He has a lot of depth to him which I like. He begins just as we can all predict. With an absolute poker face and a very cold attitude.
He is extremely quiet to the point it makes you uncomfortable. Having someone like the MC who is upbeat and cheerful in comparison didn’t really agree with him. They both clashed a lot because of their opposite personalities.
While he liked peace and quiet, she liked to make small talk and get to know other people. While he didn’t wanna get into trouble, she followed her heart and jumped the gun even if it got her (and sometime both of them) into trouble.
There came points where Shusuke was very rude that even I was somewhat taken back by it all. He might have a pretty face, but it certainly wasn’t enough to make up for his bad attitude, and trust me- sometimes it was real bad. I felt terribly sorry that the MC had to deal with his personality and I couldn’t judge her for wanting him to go away.
But of course, you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. Underneath that tough layer, Shusuke is a gentle guy. He is great with children and animals, he is very gentlemanly, and he looks out for you in his own way. He might not say much, but when he does, he makes it count and when he begins to like you, he shows it. He might not say much, but the words he does, are extremely sweet.
Shusuke doesn’t really mean to appear cold though. He is just a naturally shy guy around strangers. It takes him a bit to warm up to you, especially women. Because of something of his past he has always seen them as vile creatures who only do things to gain profit from them. He can’t understand why a woman like the MC would even exist.
How could she be so selfless and put others ahead of herself even if it might cause her trouble? She definitely had to benefit from it somehow, someway… right? But when he discovers that she really is just a nice girl, he realizes that she what he needed. He needed someone he could rely on because he had no one before.
Well, I am speculating a tiny bit. It’s what I gathered from the story. They aren’t super, crazy clear, but I got the gist.
FIGHTING EVIL BY MOONLIGHT:
I will say that the MC wasn’t as developed as I wanted her to be in this route. In Tennoji’s it was pretty freaking clear why she had been chosen to be in such an elite team. I mean, she kicked ASS in her own awesome way. But in this one… not so much.
Don’t get me wrong, she’s still great. She looks after others, she knows how to handle situations, and she is a great detective. But she just didn’t prove herself as much as she did in the past which kind of bummed me out.
I think one of the big reasons why I didn’t crazy enjoy this route was because of the lack of character development I got from her. It was so focused on Shusuke, Shusuke, and more Shusuke, that we didn’t get much spotlight on her. I appreciate that we got to know him and that he found love and all, but I really wanted her to step up to the plate as well.
Maybe instead of Shusuke being the one to do this and that, maybe it could’ve been her instead. There is one part that I did get a little sad about which was (I promise this isn’t a big spoiler) the guns. There is a small focus upon the MC learning how to shoot. Great! Awesome! Shusuke has a fantastic shot, let him show her the ropes! (•̀ヮ•́)و ̑̑
And while he does, it is mentioned maybe one more time and never again. He takes command instead. Now the MC still has a very shitty shot but she still carries around her gun like usual. I wanted more emphasis upon that. I wanted Voltage to write somewhere in that she tries to shoot at the perp but it misses, or something and the next day she trains some more and gets better.
Not just hand it all over to him. It felt like he kept being the hero and the focus of the story and I just wanted it to be a little more about her too. I wanted a balance, and I just didn’t get that. He certainly proves he can handle the situations he is put in, but she is shown as a force that falls just a bit short in comparison. She is very realistically portrayed, but I wanted her to show off a little bit too.
I didn’t need her to be a sniper, super elite detective. I just wanted her to use her amazing communication skills and knowledge to help out the case more than she did.
DONT SHOOT FOR LOVE:
The crime wasn’t actually too predictable. I actually believed they were two different things, but once I connected the dots during the last couple of chapters it all seemed pretty obvious to me. It was very Shusuke-focused though.
I wanted a little more balance, but I already mentioned all this so I won’t bother repeating it. I will say that the cause for the bombings was a pretty emotional one. Even I would hesitate like the MC and he did.
ALTHOOOOUUUGH… there is a point in one chapter where something big happens, and all of a sudden it cuts off to the next day. That really threw me off and I had to go through the log to make sure I hadn’t clicked over something by accident.
It was just so all of a sudden and I didn’t enjoy that. ू(ʚ̴̶̷́ .̠ ʚ̴̶̷̥̀ ू)
As for the side characters, they were generally speaking okay. The guys from the Unit weren’t super present so I didn’t get to feel a strong connection towards any of them as much as I did with Shusuke.
I was happy that at the end I did see a lot of passion between him and the MC. I thought it was a very, very sweet and romantic ending. It really did kind of save it for me. Plus, despite what it lacked, the CGs for this entire route were beaaautiful. I thought Shusuke looked so handsome in each and every one of them.
OVERALL, NOT TOO SHABBY~ ( •̀ㅂ•́)
I didn’t hate this route. I thought it was pretty good. It isn’t something I regret spending my money on, but it isn’t one that I am gonna run and buy the epilogue and sequel to either. Shusuke is DEFINITELY a great guy and I really loved him.
His main route didn’t do it for me, but by himself, he is so cute. I think I’m gonna wait for a sale and that’s when I shall buy the rest, but for now, I’m good!
I hope you guys enjoyed reading! Thank you very very much!
