Hello again everyone,
After giving some time to rest (aka I totally forgot about it), I decided to complete Fortune Arterial Anime that I leaved half-way.
I thought, hell it's the same as the Visual Novel anyway and that was a masterpiece. What can go wrong?
Yesterday I said it would take some more days for the review, but in the end I ended up cramming it up without pause in a couple of hours.
Let's start today with the first "serious" post of this blog. Let's review the erogè "Fortune Arterial" (I won't be covering in detail the anime, as there are already tons of website that do that job and focus on the visual novel).Fortune Arterial is an erogè from the company August (famous for Yoake Mae yori Ruriiro na) released on 2008 followed right away by a manga and covered by an anime in 2010.
The game's story revolves around the protagonist, Kohei Hasekura, who transfers into a prestigious public school that space from junior high-school to high school. The school, named Shuchikan Academy, is on an island named Tamatsu Island off-shore from mainland Japan, and the only way to get there is by boat. Immediately after transferring the protagonist got "greeted" by one of the heroines (the vice-president of the student council), and the story begin to unfold when he discover she actually is a vampire and she is not the only one on the island.
While the setting of the story is pretty much clichè, it is very well managed by the director. It stays fresh and interesting excluding from some particular route (I'm looking at you two, Kanade, Yuki!!!).
The story is divided into 5 routes, one for each heroine. Each route reveal more and more of the history of the characters and all the link between them. When all are completed the "true" route unlock and you can see the canon ending of the game.
