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!

This isn't just a game about high school antics and comedic integrity. It's a game about the importance of friendship. This game taught me that you should always follow your dreams, and that's a lesson everyone should learn.

Think of those old dating sims - you level up various abilities so you can talk to girls (or boys) better. Except instead of dating, you're trying to get them to join your comedy club. It sounds ridiculous, but it works!

Miley's a hyperactive girl frantically trying to get three more members to join her club. The downside is people here actually read before they sign stuff, so she needs to get really friendly with them before they join up.

The game is freakishly difficult for a dating sim the first time around: unless you have a walkthrough or know exactly what you're doing, you will probably fail. This is not a bad thing. But before you can get New Game+, be prepared to really slog it to just succeed.

What kept me hooked was the writing and translation. The dialogue is hilarious; every character has charm and personality, and there are lots of great zingers during conversations. The translators have done a great job bringing this to a Western audience: think of the Samurai Pizza Cats, and you know the way they tackled this.

Things I would change: skipping cutscene dialogue - there's a LOT of talking, which makes replaying the game tedious - and making it clear that if you use a conversation topic, it's only good once.
