Fortune Arterial! About time that I started my run through with this one. And man, am I pleased.
First off, you’ve got awesome seiyuus involved. Nabatame Hitomi, Shizuka Itou, Taguchi Hiroko, Kanda Rie, all of them with great performances and deliveries in each of their respetive roles, and that’s just to name a few. So far everyone’s voice acting is top-notch, which is just absolutely wonderful to listen to. You’ve also got a pretty good repertoire of BGM music to keep your ears occupied, which helps a lot in enjoying the events. Great assortment of characters that are as likeable as any of Lump of Sugar’s cast!
Second, the game looks gorgeous. The CGs are wonderfully drawn (べっかんこう <3), and the accompanying effects in game fit right in! The interface is easy to navigate, aside from being quite an eye candy, and the dialogue box hardly gets in the way of things.
Thirdly? Personal interest. After hearing Erika for the first time, I initially thought that she was voiced by Shirai Ayano (who voiced Ikaruga Satsuki of Seinarukana). But after listening closer, it turns out that her seiyuu is none other than Kanda Rie, who also voiced Hibarigaoka Yuki (of Braban!)! Having her around is very definitely a welcome thing, as she’s great when it comes to ojousama roles. Plus, there’s also Nabatame Hitomi, Shizuka Itou, and most importantly Taguchi Hiroko (<3333333), all of whom are my most favorite seiyuus.
