Kay complains that criminals should be given the punishment they deserve and Edgeworth reassures her: “Don’t worry; Mom and Dad will take good care of them”.
And so, this takes us to the true mystery of Case 5 of AAI2: when did Mikagami and Edgeworth got married?
Because every time they act like a married couple with children I can feel everyone wondering this question.

narratives about kind, naive girls who are put in shitty, impossible situations and slowly lose their naivete, but never their kindness

narratives about girls whose compassion and principles turn from an impediment into a crucial strength

narratives about vulnerable, soft-hearted girls that don’t condemn them for either trait but instead celebrate them as heroic

narratives about girls who get rescued and do the rescuing—the first of which doesn’t take away their agency (despite popular belief) and the second of which just reaffirms their ability and courage

narratives about Nao fucking Kanzaki

Get Dumped ☆Release Date (Windows, Mac OS, Linux)English: March 15th, 2013“Michi has been living nothing short of a shoujo manga romance with her perfect boyfriend… until he asked for a break up. Lost and confused, Michi asks for one last date. Now she has to find out the reason he chose to do it and change herself before it’s too late!”This is a free otome game by a new producer called Macuyo. You can download it here!

I played it (and they guy seemed like an ass to me so I decided to not go for him) and the ending was pretty bad.
I’m sure the endings for getting him are okay, but I was hoping for some “realising she’s okay without him” kinda ending. Not a “my life is nothing without you” ending.

When I read this I felt like a need to defend myself lol
I’m sorry if the premise seems bad, but all I can say is to please give this game a chance? (And to not judge my game so quickly) Because I tried putting in an important moral regarding the main character’s attitude.
In a way, I made this game to show how unnecessary it is. There’s a reason why no matter how you change for him, it’ll always lead to a crappy ending.
*** SPOILER
Your hopes have come true, because that is sort of the real end.

This game is probably my favorite among all the short ones I’ve played. It’s really well made, the drawings are nice and the main character is something else. I love her, I really wish all MCs would be like her! I loved how she had grown through the game and the real ending was beautiful. It’s close to real life, something that you don’t usually find in otome games. Funny thing is, I wasn’t disappointed. I would have been if she ended with him, actually XDD I think it’s because, unlike the other games, you grow attached to the MC insted of the boy, so it’s natural to wish for her well being. At the beginning I was expecting something like Michi finding another boy during the game…it didn’t happen, but I’m still satisfied with the game, I could keep on repeating myself forever haha XDDD
Aaaanyway, you really did a wonderful job, I absolutely love Michi’s character, and I hope she’ll find herself a parking ticket man with fine written all over him! XDD
