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
  • Fun dialogue and memorable characters

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 ;)

I've never really played a "visual novel" style game like this before, but for my first time I really enjoyed the offerings. Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is a feel-good story about Mairu Hibisu, your typical 'I Wanna Be Hokage' type protagonist who dreams of becoming the next big international comedy senstation. Re-opening her school's defunct comedy club is the first stepping stone to her dreams; however, in order to form a club at CTH you need to have at least three members who want to sign up. And this is where the fun comes in!

CTHCC is essentially Persona Social Links The Game, but it puts its own cute little twist on things. You run around town discovering new students to harass and blackmail into joining your club hopefully recruit, and as you get to know each of the students you meet, you'll begin to level up your social standing with them. Get to know them well enough, and they'll eventually give in to your constant hounding join up.

One feature I really liked was how by talking to each character on a daily basis, you start picking up clues as to which converational topics they may or may not like. Some are made obvious, and some not so much. You also do better talking to students by increasing what you know about each of the conversation subjects. There are loads of ways to do this, from heading to the cinema or reading magazines in the library, to spending time at the arcade or listening to that weekend's guest speaker at the art gallery. There's genuinely loads to do all over town and many day/time specific events, which I personally enjoyed as it encourages you to get to know and care about the places & people you're interacting with.

One final thing I wanted to add is that I really loved the variety in each character's story, which starts to unfold as you level up your social standing with them. No story was similar and many were quite serious at times, but the sprites and character art remained adorable throughout, making it pretty hard not to find yourself endeared to everyone by the end. There's also a little re-playability value with the New Game+ mode (where you can start a new game with the stats you built up from your first game), but as this game is just a quick bit of cutesy fun, you probably won't be picking it back up once you're done with it unless you want to see the perfect ending. Would highly recommend this as a great introductory game to the visual novel genre.

Quick sidenote: if you're looking for pantsu, this really isn't it. There are absolutely zero romantic interactions with any character, which I was more than happy with but I understand would be a turn-off for some.

It's a sidestep away from games like Persona where you have to balance school with battling monsters, which is refreshing. I do think that the timeframe is a little packed, but if you've got the strategy for getting recruits, then this game is very enjoyable to play.
