I present you with Lump of Sugar’s very first title, Nursery Rhyme!
With Tayutama -kiss on my deity- coming up soon – and I mean TEN MORE DAYS SOON OH MY FREAKING GOD! – I tried out Nursery Rhyme, as if on a whim. Well, not really as if, seeing as I was stuck in the library with nothing to do but wait for an hour and a half before my next class. With the free time, I decided to see if waiting for Lump of Sugar’s third title (Nursery Rhyme – Itsusora fandisc not counting) was worth it by seeing if their very first title would entertain me.
First off: oh god, the OP music is absolutely fucking cute and addicting to listen to!
Nursery Rhyme was quite interesting during the first few minutes that I played through it. So our protagonist, whose name I roughly forgot Hasekura Shizuma, moves in to his mother’s friend’s house after his parents take an overseas job that lasts for three years. In doing so, he ends up living with his childhood friends – twin siblings who go by the name of Tomoe Makina, an energetic and active girl, and Tomoe Yukina, who is slightly more subdued and elegant than her sister – along with two other girls – a young genius girl by the name of Kururu, and and elf girl named Rin (god the rest of her name is really hard to figure out in romaji >_>) – in the same house. And to add to that, there’s another girl living in the house just besides the Tomoe residence, a tsundere ojousama who goes by the name of Teita F Brant (again, I’m not really sure of the romaji here). What I do know is that people like to call her Ms. TITS FLAWLESS. You can blame the F in her name for that one.
It’s not really hard to see that Nursery Rhyme is all about high school antics and relationships with some comedy and drama along the way, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’m really into that kind of genre, provided that it’s executed and done in an interesting and compelling manner, something that Nursery Rhyme has according to a comment by Mister Merryweather. And Nursery Rhyme looks like it’ll deliver! For something that was released on 2005, I guess it’s not too late to enjoy it!
Now, I’m definitely looking forward to Tayutama -kiss on my deity- and its release!
