About the new MM update
I’ve been getting a lot of messages like this about the new update! The whole fandom is kind of crazy right now, and I feel like I should probably say something. (sorry nonnie this isn’t directed @ you but you were top of the heap and I am too damn lazy to look through my mess of a box and SS a bunch of messages lol).
First, let me say that I LOVE all of the theories and speculation floating around. I think it’s wonderful. What better way to make new friends and start getting involved in a fandom then moments when we are all guessing what is coming next or discussing opinions and theories! It keeps the fandom alive and brings people together! (Not to mention those quality memes!)
However, none of us know for certain what this new update entails. And while we all have our own personal hopes for what it’s going to be, I think it’s important to remember that even if we are wrong or it’s not what we wanted, we should still be happy for this new content! I’m so grateful Cheritz keeps working hard to give us new stuff to look forward to.
Alright, now on to a sort of rant-filled breakdown because there are so many rumors floating around and I keep getting message after message about this all and what I think.
I’ll say right now that I am very certain it will NOT be us playing as Rika.
Why? Plain and simple, this is an Otome game. We are meant to date the characters. It would be incredibly strange for them to put all of this money and resources into creating an update where you play as a female character that isn’t MC/yourself. Not to mention, a female character that the majority of the fandom dislikes.
Secondly, is this more background into Mint Eye? Hm, while that’s a real possibility, I also believe that it’s doubtful. Why? Because we got more than enough info in the Secret Endings. I mean, what more could we know? The rest of the info we could possibly learn would be unnecessary. All of the important plot points have been revealed, so that would be a truly boring update.
Is that V AND SAERAN in the pic? While I’ve touched on this before and posted pic submissions basically debunking it, I’ll say it again. That’s definitely V, albeit just a tad bit different and to me, younger and more youthful looking (though laying the funeral pic on top of it shows it to be a good match).
So, what could this update be. Is it a route? I believe so. If it was a DLC, they would place it in the DLC spot with the rest of the special short content.
Why does it only say ‘Another Story’ though? It could be something they typed up so it doesn’t give too much away. A placeholder if you will. It keeps us guessing, and it could change to say ‘deepest route’ or ‘magical unicorn dreams with V’ or really any damn thing they wanted to after it updates and releases. Or that could honestly be the name. Who knows.
Every route in the game has a different end, it’s like a brand new game each time. “V died though!” doesn’t really say anything, he survived in plenty of other routes. It may be the true end to the game itself as a whole, but a route can still go it’s own way, since each route resets.
Despite that, I think there is a good possibility it could be an AU route.
I’m placing all my eggs in the AU basket. I could be crazy wrong, but this is my guess. First, because of the fact that I think V’s image for the route looks a bit younger than how we meet him previously. Second, and because I LOVE to contradict myself and argue with myself, while I stated just a second ago that each route resets and Cheritz can have us romance V even though his true end is death, I also think it is a lot less complicated to have us meet and romance V at an earlier time in his life.
This makes much more sense.
I could definitely see a route where perhaps and by chance you end up meeting V and interact with him and the RFA as their younger selves. Perhaps Rika took the advice and decided to go for help during this time so she is a non-factor. Maybe we get to see Yoosung being his studious self, Zen as a struggling actor instead of a star, etc etc. Wouldn’t that be cool???!?
I just don’t know. I hope for a lot of things, but only time will tell!!
I just know that whatever it is they end up giving us, I’m probably going to binge it all in one sitting and then cry myself to sleep lolol.
