While most visual novels intended for females hit you over the head with romance and pretty boys, this game actually takes this idea and almost puts it as a side note. Don't get me wrong, your relationships will be a major plot point however you also need to manage your friendship with your two roommates as well as the role you play in school. You might be treasurer and have to help plan events, or be part of a club designed to seek revenge on others.
Of course, your love interest still does play a point in the game. You can date either a male or female or even a Professor if you go down the right path. What makes this game great is how it developes the relationships. Your character is not swept off her feet instantly but the first cute face. Each relationship feels realistic and is built on many layers. You even get quite a bit of back story to each character you date (save for one bonus Steam added relationship which is a secret bonus one added to the Steam version of the game). But don't think you can't get dumped at any time by your SO. Pick the wrong options and it's back to the single life.
Of course since there's magic in the game and you're going to school, you do take exams where you use a few spells and common sense to solve the problems in a dungeon that is a screen by screen styled place (aka it's not a free roaming thing but you move from one screen to the next like a hidden object game without the hidden objects).
It's really nice to have your own PC (playable character) have internal conflict as well with her family so you get some character developement as well.
Overall, I've put over 10 hours into a graphic novel game and I read fast. There are so many paths to go down and things to do differently in each run through that the replay value is super high. It's a very interesting game which incorporates a lot of different aspects into one wonderful game.
