Fairy Bloom Freesia is a game well loved for it's combat mechanics, but other elements also makes me want to recommend this game so much.
I'll start with the combat. It's pretty difficult for me to explain, but it has the gameplay of Action RPG games like Tales of, but much more simplified, which isn't necessarely a bad thing. The only disadvantage to this gameplay is that there are only a few enemies throughout the game which just come back with different color schemes.
You fight as an anime fairy forest girl who is protecting said forest from bad things. There is no exploration though, as you just fight enemy waves with bosses after a select amount. Don't worry though, after every wave you go back to the intermission, where you can equip and upgrade skills, and save so you can take a break from the game. A shout out to Edelweiss for making some really good and interesting boss battles, with the exception of the first boss.
The graphics and music are really appealing, but that might be different according to your taste. Another thing I like is personal, but a big reason why I love this game. It comes in the form of references, though some are incorrect. For example, the main girl is not a reference, but looks and acts like one of my favorite Anime characters ever called Last Order. And lets not forget the achievement which is a direct reference to Madoka Magica, one of my favorite Animes of all time.
This game also has a great replay value. After you have completed the main story, several different modes unlock, with much more challenges than you have faced before in this game.
I might be a little biased when it comes to this game because it had several things that I look forward to in a game. But these are somewhat personal preferences, so I'd advise you to check out the demo first. And if you enjoyed the demo, then you will for sure enjoy the game.
