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!

So I finished this game 3 times. The first two being a normal new game and I managed to recruit 3 new members each time and got the good end. The third time was a new game+ where my stats carried over and I recruited all 6 characters. Each run took about roughly 3 hours to finish. I haven't seen what the bad end looks like, but I will later on.

All the characters are likable and you learn a bit about each character as you grow closer to them. There's quite a bit of stat building and you have a limited number of moves each day, so you have to plan from the get go. It's helpful to use a character guide to tell you what each character likes or dislikes to speed things along because choosing the wrong topic to chat with them about will lower your closeness level with them and set you back. The story is pretty much linear with no choices as there are only 3 possible endings in the game. Overall, I found this pretty enjoyable.

"Cherry Tree High Comedy Club" is, in fact, much more a management game than a Visual Novel ifself. It has an anime style story that should be funny, but it isn't. The characters have stereotyped personalities that lacks charm. Soundtrack doesn't captivate either, it's ultra repetitive.

And you can't even play it in fullscreen!

Learn just enough about schoolgirls to trick them into being your friend so they can serve your greater cause, and then move on to the next target.

Being a sociopath is fun.

FOR WHAT IT IS, I recommend this game.

Not everybody will enjoy visual novel/dating sim games, let alone ones steeped in Japanese cultural tropes. For people who cannot enjoy such genres, this game will be horrendous.

For those who do, it is a game with a youthful feel and a certain degree of sweet innocence. Elements of time management also factor into gameplay.

As these games go, it is far from a difficult one, and fairly forgiving. The replayability will vary depending on how much of a completionist you are, and how your first run went.

A game with anime girls. You're an anime girl. You talk to anime girls. There's also a couple of guys. I mainly focused on the girls. I won my first playthrough without much effort. 10/10 would play RPG maker school sim (?) again.

This game is fine if you're looking for a lighter, simpler stat-raising / relationship-building game.

Nothing especially outstanding, but it's relaxing and the graphics are cute. The idea is to improve relationships with the people you want to recruit to your comedy club. As usual, you have to balance school, possible part-time jobs, and talking to key people (and finding out what they like etc.).

If you're looking for something to play in the genre, and you're taking a break from more adult or intense games, this is worth picking up.

Fun, but lacks the depth of games like Long Live the Queen. There is the illusion that skills matter, but I found I could get the minimum number of members without having to really level up any skills. I also survived just fine without needing to work.

I've really enjoyed playing this game. It's fairly quick, so I did make the mistake of trying to recruit EVERYONE right off the bat, which led me to getting a bad ending. It can be a bit frustrating to play without a guide, especially since you can only talk to each person once about each topic.

I'm not usually one for time management games or dating sims, but CTHCC drew me in with its anime sensibility and comedic promise, before completely shattering my expectations.

Befitting its comedy club premise, the dialogue is regularly chuckle-worthy, with moments of pure absurdist brilliance. (One example: "I see now ... So that's why I like cannoli. That makes sense." "Wh... What are you talking about?" "It makes total sense." "Don't just end a conversation like that!")

That said, each of the major characters also has their own full story arc with actual emotional weight, ranging from coping with loss to coping with corporate encroachment. These topics are handled with surprising sensitivity, and display Mairu (Miley in the Westernized version) as more than a mere player avatar, with her own vulnerabilities occasionally surfacing... and then she'll make a lesbian joke, because deflecting is fun.

The gameplay itself is broken down into distinct turns (seen here as morning/afternoon/evening), in which the player can explore the town freely before deciding on their "move" for that particular round. Thankfully, the developers provided enough content to avoid turning the skill-building process into a grind. Dozens of NPCs populate this world, some appearing only at specific times, and each spawning new dialogue on a daily or weekly basis, giving incentive to wander a bit before reading the next magazine or earning more yen.

There are some minor bugs, such as character portraits being displayed with an incorrect outfit or NPCs referring to the previous week's guest lecturer as forthcoming. I played the deWesternized version, yet characters would sometimes lapse into their Westernized names, which is momentarily distracting but not nearly gamebreaking.

You will most likely need at least a second playthrough in order to experience all six storylines, so the replayability is sufficient to justify the non-sale price, and I encountered new dialogue responses throughout my second run. I'm planning to try a third, attempting to generate the "best" ending without the benefit of the New Game+ option, before diving into the sequel... recruiting was just the beginning...

Honestly, this is quite a quick visual novel, but a fun one. Worth it if it's under sale and trust me, you'll have a good laugh, if you understood the jokes.

I haven't played this game for more than 10 minutes. 1.6 hours recorded are because idlemaster. of course, trading cards.

Pros :
# trading cards
# arts. anime / comic-style, I like it.

cons :
# no exit button. you should get out from full screen and click those X on your game window
# no save anywhere. for multiple ending game. save anywhere is a must.
# no auto-skip text. this one make it worse. without save anywhere and can't auto-skip, you should considering yourself to go buy a new keyboard.


some people said it has good story. but I'm not sure if I have the will to continue to play this clicker heroes wrapped in visual novel cover.

overall, in term of technical issues, its like japanese version of soul gambler.

Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is an interactive visual novel/adventure game where you play as Mairu, a girl during her last year as a student of Cherry Tree High, who is trying to reopen the Cherry Tree High Comedy Club. The game alternates between visual novel scenes and your own interactions with the world around you in side-scrolling fashion, as you level up your abilities and try to persuade at least 3 other people to join your club, in accordance with school rules. Buy magazines, go out for lunch, converse with others as level up your relationships, but hurry because you are running out of time for the submission deadline. Thumbs up to a fun interactive anime-type visual novel.

Interesting but could be better.
There are a lot of technical stuff to remember and the game doesn't do a good job of explaining it.

Good visuals, funny story, and interesting characters.
I'd recommend it for those who are interested in re-living highschool again.

Вам надоели шутеры от первого лица, взрывы и убийства монтров? Вы любите аниме, спокойную музыку и разговоры о повседневной жизни? В таком случае мне сложно не порекомендовать вам "Cherry Tree High Comedy Club". Здесь вы играете за девочку, которой предстоит набрать людей в свой клуб по интересам. Весь игровой процесс построен на том, что вам необходимо как можно больше общаться с окружающими людьми, не забывая о повседневных обязанностях. Игра не требует особой концентрации и внимания, и в этом ее плюс. Довольно нищевый тайтл, но при этом вполне качественный

Если вкратце, это игра про то, как девочка хочет стать Региной Дубовицкой 80-го уровня и сколачивает свой "Аншлаг". А ради финансирования этого благого дела она собирает пустые бутылки на улице. Звучит дико, но играется увлекательно Рекомендую, часиков пять на это потратить можно.

Игра для любителей анимационного стиля рисовки... игра в принципе увлекательная и интересная, но не сразу... т.к. нужно ёщё понять суть, но вы разберётесь! :D Так же тут нет русского языка. В игре геймплей по сути делится на три разных типа... время, персонажи и действия. Время... в игре дают нам 3 момента действия: утро, день и вечер... кстати вечёром действия происходят дома. На счёт персонажей... тут даже сюжетная цель игры, надо сделать так, чтобы они вступили в клуб! :D Да-да в клуб... у каждого персонажа есть свои интересы, и вы должны зная их улучшать их отношения к себе, чтобы добится цели. Действия, ну там всё просто... сделать домашку, почитать журналы, сходить на работу... и много чего ещё. :) В общем как я говорил... игра на любителя, но мне понравилось.

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.

Take Persona 3/4, remove the heavy story and dungeon crawling gameplay, keep the daily calendar grind/choices and the social links, but add lots of puns to 'em and bam, you've got Cherry Tree High Comedy Club! It's alright, but it feels like there's something missing, like all you get to see is a small part of a much bigger story.

This was a charming little experience! It could be described as Persona 3/4 without the drama and battling, or as a platonic dating sim, if you're into that sort of thing. Expect some routine anime shenanigans, with characters deep enough to be interesting. It's a very lighthearted, easy-going game, but all the characters feel "real" enough to give it sufficient depth.

My first playthrough took about four hours, and my second around two and a half. It's not a long game, but it's full of characters and personality, like a town from Paper Mario: tTYD, you can keep coming back to people for new looks at them. The game emphasizes making friends and being a well-rounded individual, which I think is as good a moral as you could get. I do wish there had been some forewarning about some aspects of the relationship-building dialogues. For example, you can only discuss a topic once with a "target," for the entire playthrough. Of course, this isn't a huge obstacle, and it only makes the game have stronger replay value.

Don't count on much action, or even multiple dialogue options. All of the gameplay focuses on skill-building, time management, and selecting good topics of conversation. This is simply a great game for those looking for solid characters and friendships in a quirky, somewhat-cliche anime setting. If there's a sequel coming out any time soon, as the end of the game implies, I'm very excited for it!

First off; I am going to say it is like a dating sim, in that you build relationships and meet people.

The game is simple and doesn't try to be anything else, it doesn't shoe-horn in mini games to pass time, it tells a story and introduces you to interesting and funny characters; the more you learn of, the more you discover how deep they all are.

The game can be tough, you play a highschool student and have to maintain homework, limit fatigue and all while also trying to maintain knowledge of various topics to discuss with potential friends and peers.

If you want a visual novel type story with plenty of interaction and decent length of gameplay, pick this game up

EDIT: In the last few weeks since I played this game a dewesternised version has come out, which I have yet to play. I will update this review once I've played the new version, but I think most of my points are still valid.

+ Free demo!
+ No bugs whatsoever!
+ You can transfer your Repertoire plus Targets' likes and dislikes to the next save file.
+ ...So if you didn't make it the first time, you'll definitely get a good ending with the next playthrough.
+ There is a sequel, which is out now!

+/- 2 hours per playthrough.
+/- Sugary sweet story, very innocent.
+/- Perfect for kids.
+/- In the westernised version, the translation is aimed at Americans who don't (necessarily) know anything about Japanese culture, even though there are shrines and cherry blossoms - but it works nonetheless.
+/- In the westernised version, there are lots of references to (American) pop culture.
+/- Simple art style, quite nice but not eye poppingly awesome.

- Repetitive gameplay.
- Not very original in its genre, both with gameplay and characters.
- 2.5 playthroughs needed for full completion and no way to skip the last week or two (which is annoying if you've finished both your Repertoire and your Target list halfway through April).


Conclusion: not very original, but still enjoyable. Get it on sale.


(I played it while offline, so Steam didn't register my gaming time. :< )

Warning: Lengthy review incoming!


Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is an interactive visual novel with the gameplay of a dating simulator.

Before I get into the review, I want you to know, that I played the westernized localization of the game. I’m going to talk about this in a little bit more detail at a later point of this review.

You play as Miley Verisse, a young comedy fanatic, who’s planning on forming her very own Comedy Club in her school. Miley’s roommate has already been compelled to join the club, but the problem is that school clubs have a minimum number of required members, which means that Miley has to find three more people to join her club until the end of the club trial period. That means you’ve got two months to manipulate and befriend as many people as possible.

This is where the dating simulator gameplay comes in.
There are six different characters that can be recruited and you befriend them by talking to them about different topics. You raise your skill levels by reading magazines or visiting places and occasionally you can also find random stuff on the ground that raises your skills as well. The higher your skill for “fashion” for example is, the more the friendship level of a character will be raised when talking to them about this topic.

This type of gameplay can get a bit repetitive, since you do the same thing every day. You get up, talk to a character, talk to another character, watch some TV and the day is over. Repeat until some special event happens or until the friendship level of a character rises.

To get a character to join your club you have to get them to friendship level 5, which is pretty much impossible to do for all 6 characters in the first playthrough. Fortunately there is a new game+, which allows you to keep all your skills and only resets your friendship levels.

The whole game has a lot of jokes, because, you know… Miley’s a comedy enthusiast and stuff.
There were some jokes that are right up my alley that I found really amusing and then there were some others that just fell flat for me.

The characters are rather diverse and even though some of them seem pretty spineless in the beginning, you find out that they have a really interesting background story after befriending them. On the other hand, there are also some characters that still seem rather spineless after you convince them to join your club and their background story is by far not as interesting as you’d expect.

A big problem I had with the game is, that it only supports a resolution of 640x480 and if you want to play it in fullscreen mode, the game window gets stretched to fit the height of your screen and you get two beautiful black bars next to the game to fill your screen. The settings of the game are also pretty limited, but hey, it’s a visual novel and not some fancy AAA game title, so I guess that’s expectable.

At the time I bought this game, no original version was available in English, only the westernized version, with different names and locations.

With the release of the sequel of Cherry Tree High Comedy Club on Steam we finally get to play the game in English with the original names and the same places as in the Japanese version of the game.

For example, Miley turns into Mairu and Cindy suddenly is called Haru. Also, chilli dogs turn into rice omelets, because, you know, western people only know chilly dogs and can’t comprehend rice omelets or something.

All those extremely western sounding names feel a bit out of place, because everything feels so Japanese and all those cherry trees in the background for example definitely don’t make me feel like I’m in the US either.


I’m going to be completely honest with you: Cherry Tree High Comedy Club was the first visual novel I ever played, so I might judge this game a lot differently than some of you visual novel veterans out there but for someone new to this type of medium, this game was a really good entry point and even if you’re usually not a big fan of those type of games, you might still enjoy all those cute characters and the nice setting.

The multiple endings and the new game+ give the rather short game some replayability, since you will not be satisfied with only knowing the background story of for example 3 of the characters but you will want to know the background story of all of them, even though they might not be as interesting as you’d expect.

All in all, Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is a pretty decent visual novel for veterans and casuals in this medium. It might have its flaws but it is still a really enjoyable game to waste some time with.

If you’re a diehard action fan who needs explosions, headshots and a lot of gore to enjoy a video game, or someone who detests reading and dislikes games that heavily rely on text in general, you might want to sit this one out.

Everybody else:

Should you play Cherry Tree High Comedy Club?

Yes. Yes you should.
