About This Game

Comedy fanatic and high school student Mairu Hibisu has decided to set up a comedy club in her school, but her nemesis and the head of the student council, Chitose Karasuyama, isn’t about to make things easy… The school rules require a minimum of 5 students to set up a new club and Mairu is 3 people short! Spring break has just started and Mairu has until the end of April to recruit the 3 new members she needs to start the club or Chitose will have the last laugh!

Guide Mairu through idyllic Cherry Tree Town as she makes new friends and endeavors to persuade them to join her high school comedy club in this anime-style comic adventure game.

Explore the town and level up Mairu’s repertoire of conversational topics by reading books, watching TV, etc. then apply them to persuade potential recruits to join your new club. Some topics require money to build up, so you will need to find part time work such as cleaning the local temple and making jewelry accessories.

Developer 773’s game features a host of quirky characters, catchy music, and is a must-play for fans of anime and manga. Laugh and the world laughs with you!

Key Features:

  • 6 characters to recruit and many more NPCs
  • 12 conversational topics to polish and upgrade, such as video games, romance, news, cooking, sports
  • All original, high quality graphics and catchy music

I am Miley; the overly enthusiastic type of anime protagonist.

My goal is to stalk 6 people who don't really want to join and nag them to join my Comedy Club while they deal with some actual issues. I have a friend called Harriet who I have decided to sign up to my club despite her lack of interesting and her having a part time job because I am more important.

First was Sara; she is the quiet one who I follow about while she deals with her psychological issues; I got her to open up by knowing a lot about mystery novels which I had spent all night reading.

Next was May; she is the cute little one who wants to develop a chest and is dealing with some serious choices about her families future; she decided to resolve them and join my club after I played some video games and stopped being such a NOOB.

Next was my friend Cindy who was following her dream; through a combination of guilt playing and following her she finally gives in and joins me.

My next target was Vivian, the hockey star who gets ill from people bothering her; I continue to bother her until she joins me through Stockholm Syndrome, ironic as she is Swedish.

Tyler was stalking my friend; I give a potentially dangerous stranger my friends number without her permission and use Harriet to effectively trick him into joining. That's okay though, because I am too selfish to care.

Then there is Male Student. He has a name, but you are supposed to talk to his father, hunt down his name through school and then ignore him not wanting to talk to me by threatening his social life until he joins my club.

By doing all of this, I got the good ending.

Recommended for anyone who wants to read + play a relaxing and comical adventure. I loved to visit the various characters in the town or at school every day to discover what funny or cute things they are going to tell this time (they also provide plenty of background information by the way!).
This is a no-drama, slice-of-life interactive VN, with charming characters to meet; building up your various communication skills/stats to befriend them; there are different background music themes to set the mood in this colourful world. Did I mention the whacky shrine maiden?

There are 2 modes to play this game in. I played the Japanese localisation version which I wholeheartedly recommend if you know and appreciate at least a few things about Japanese terms and culture. If you're not really well known with it, then perhaps the Westernized localisation is more suited to you.

If you're not sure wether you'd enjoy this game, why not try out the demo ;)

My impression of this game is when you're about to sneeze and the sneeze goes away so you stick a crayon up your nose to get the sneeze out, 10/10 I would recommend but also not recommend

*sigh*
Well I beat the game. I didn't enjoy it but I completed it.
I didn't think it was possible to mess up a visual novel but I guess it is.

"Oh but x2Madda, this isn't a visual novel--" Then what is it? Because I'll tell you what it isn't, fun!
Cherry Tree is the tale of a girl trying to open a comedy club at school however she needs 5 members to be able to do so and her with her best friend are only 2 people. Recruit 3 more members out of a pool of 6 while finishing all your homework and balancing your fatigue or else you may collapse or fail class!

That's what the advertising blurb said anyway. You get to move left and right on various screens and talk to NPCs but this isn't a platform game and the walking only serves to give the illusion of gameplay or to pick up various objects scattered around. The "homework" just serves to waste days and fatigue can be balanced very easily by just not wasting time working jobs. You see you have 40 days broken down into 3 time slots per day in order to make the potential recruits like you. However the only way to make them like you is to impress them with your various diplomatic actions which are influenced by your diplomatic skills which you increase by choosing a skill to level up, thus also eating into those precious time slots.

This sounds like a game and it sounds like it could be good but the problem is that you can easily increase all your skills very high very quickly and recruit everyone with time to spare. You can also fail miserably if you try to actually engage with people instead of leveling up your skills so it reminds me of 'Long Live the Queen' but without the good writing. Or the fun.

Speaking of writing, this is one of the most boring non-visual novels I have ever read. How do you even mess up a visual novel with a comedy setting? Well it has little jokes relying more on puns and memes and oh ho, before you accuse me of playing the westernized version, I am playing the Japanese translated version.

I didn't enjoy playing the game. The music doesn't create any atmosphere, the story is sweet at its core but lacks any charm and the characters are believable but as soon as they joined I didn't feel any connection or want to engage with them further. Lastly the sound effects are from an open source sound bank so if you reconize some of them from other games (100% Oranage Juice) that would be the reason why.
Really, the graphics are very good and I like the ideas that went into the game but it suffers poor execution
Hopefully the sequel which is a straight up visual novel, will remedy the issues I experienced here.
