TOMO IS SUCH AN INCREDIBLE BADASS IN THIS SCENE OMG
I love how he super-politely destroys Sakaki’s douchebag brother. So I guess he’s a board member as well and probably the person who has been directly coercing Tomo, though in true VN fashion they never make this important stuff clear.
Anyway! THIS IS ABOUT TOMO BEING AWESOME OKAY
We originally played this route waaaay back at the very beginning of our GH2 obsession, and now that we know the full story of the game, it’s even more amazing than before.
I’d almost go so far as to say you could just play Tomo’s route and stop, and that would be a damn near complete representation of the game. And playing Sakaki’s immediately after Tomo’s would fill in almost all of the rest. I think all you’d be missing is the Sonoda angle, plus other interesting bits that are scattered throughout the other routes.
I hope they end up mashing that all together in the manga…
