EDIT: In the last few weeks since I played this game a dewesternised version has come out, which I have yet to play. I will update this review once I've played the new version, but I think most of my points are still valid.
+ Free demo!
+ No bugs whatsoever!
+ You can transfer your Repertoire plus Targets' likes and dislikes to the next save file.
+ ...So if you didn't make it the first time, you'll definitely get a good ending with the next playthrough.
+ There is a sequel, which is out now!
+/- 2 hours per playthrough.
+/- Sugary sweet story, very innocent.
+/- Perfect for kids.
+/- In the westernised version, the translation is aimed at Americans who don't (necessarily) know anything about Japanese culture, even though there are shrines and cherry blossoms - but it works nonetheless.
+/- In the westernised version, there are lots of references to (American) pop culture.
+/- Simple art style, quite nice but not eye poppingly awesome.
- Repetitive gameplay.
- Not very original in its genre, both with gameplay and characters.
- 2.5 playthroughs needed for full completion and no way to skip the last week or two (which is annoying if you've finished both your Repertoire and your Target list halfway through April).
Conclusion: not very original, but still enjoyable. Get it on sale.
(I played it while offline, so Steam didn't register my gaming time. :< )
