Been playing Nightshade
Or Hyakka Hyakurou, anyway.
Currently I’m doing Hanzou’s story (2nd route), and I can hardly believe it … I’m impressed by the MC?! I was already disappointed with her before, thinking she was just the regular sweet, pure, pretty boring but of course still oh so special damsel in distress put into a shinobi outfit just for the aesthetic. I also wasn’t expecting a lot from this route - dude could be her father and kinda acts that way, too
(a dynamic I would appreciate A LOT more if this wasn’t supposed to be romantic tbh!). But now I’m kinda amazed!
Like … she is actually learning from Hanzou and becoming tougher, both physically and mentally? Just look at that determination. Girl is developing real backbone in this route.
So surprised. This MC is actually working hard on becoming a badass herself.
I hope this game keeps that up.
Update: Holy shit, I think I’m really going to miss this version of the MC … Can’t I just keep her and play all the routes with her?
