"A story of young ambition that's relatable and strong. It's far outside the typical for the genre, with characters and ending you'll have to experience."

Acerca de este juego

From the author of Spice and Wolf, Isuna Hasekura, comes WORLD END ECONOMiCA. The opening video features music by Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets, known for the opening songs for High School of the Dead and Strike the Blood.

A three part visual novel set in the far future on the moon, 16 years after humans have begun to colonize it. A young boy named Haru has been chasing his wildest dream. His dream is to stand where no man has stood before, and in order to do so he needs capital, a ludicrous amount of capital. What better place to get that amount of capital by using the stock market? There are two key rules that govern the stock market.

  • The first rule: Never take a loss.
  • The second rule: Never forget the first.

Only those who follow these rules are able to obtain enormous wealth...

Now let's see~. My very first visual novel. The very thought of it coming from the author of some renown, and music from group that's been doing some Touhou remixes made me think that it is fine specimen to introduce mine self to the wonderful world of visual novels.

It is a nice story with some merit to it, but not without faults. For instance there are some very fascinating dialogue with such a vivid scenery as empty black screen and some of the ... hmmh, translation choices seemed bit awkward and even coarse. I do want to believe that it is the handiwork of the translator(s), and not the intended meaning of the author.

However my greatest problem was with how the author presents the market. By the time I'm writing this I've been investing in a real market for well over 5 years. So most of the time when I am reading the protagonist going on about the market it made me want to slap him and yell " this is not how a real market works!". If things really worked like they are presented in the game I would be owner of the stock market in few years. But someone might argue that it's fictional market, so fictional rules apply. I'd say they are correct in that regard. However I was under impression that they were trying to make a serious financial "thriller" in sci-fi context.

Oh and lest we forget the juvenile approach with panty shots and whatnot.

Put those little jagged edges of literature aside. The art is guaranteed nice. I came for the market based story and stayed for the emo-tional drama. I enjoyed the senior investor character (can't remember the name) and the "new frontier" approach of the story with it's possibilities and implications. Also there's a nice twist I shan't ruin by mentioning it

In essence :
Flawed jewel. I wouldn't say flawed diamond because that would put it well over it's league, but valuable bauble none the less.

I will buy episode 2 if it ever reaches steam.

WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.01 is a VN where there are no choices for the reader to make. It is pretty long considering how it is just a third of the full story. It is written by the same author who wrote Spice and Wolf. I would recommend having a basic knowledge of stocks and margin trading to fully enjoy the story, since most of the exciting parts are about stock trading.

Story: The story is well written. It is about a boy who runs away from home and makes a living by trading stocks. At times, I feel the story really dragged on, and could be condensed. I really liked the twist at the end. I have studied a lot of economics, finance, statistics, mathematics and computer science, so I thought the story was pretty amazing since it incorporated a lot of material I had learned into a plot. But without basic knowledge of stocks or an interest in economics, you probably will not undestand or be interested in the most exciting parts of the plot and the plot is pretty dull without those components. Overall I would rate the plot 8.5/10.

Characters: The characters differed from the stereotypical characters in most Anime/VN and were well developed. Nothing too special about them though. I would rate the characters 7/10

Music: The music was okay. Better than a lot of other games. A few catchy tunes. I would rate it 7.5/10.

Artwork: The artwork was nice. But there were still a lot of scenes that had black/blank backgrounds and lots of scenes where I feel the background should be updated to different one. Overall, I would rate the artwork 6.5/10 since there were too many scenes with black backgrounds (no artwork) and too many reused backgrounds.

Overall: I would rate it 8/10. The story was great. There are several typos, and too many black backgrounds and reused to backgrounds which took away from my enjoyment.

World End Economica is an interesting visual novel with a very interesting setting and story. The whole society on the moon is well fleshed out and the transitions between world building and plot development were fairly well done. Where 'World End Economica' really shines however, is with the characters.
The main character is refreshingly flawed but quite likeable at his core. All the characters have their stories and the way the main character learns about them feels smooth. Each character has a depth to their personality and it made me really empathise with them. I also enjoyed the development of relationships between the main character and the other characters.
However, this visual novel doesn't have any choices that deviates the story and although the stock market explanations were interesting initially. The main gripe I have is that the quantity of art didn't meet the quantity of the story so at times where I was expecting a visual to accompany the story there was simply a black screen. Although the art is quite good.
I personally quite liked this visual novel; the length of the visual novel was surprisingly but satisfyingly long and I would recommend this visual novel if you enjoy reading stories with good character development and setting.

I-it's not like I enjoyed this game enough to recommend it or a-anything!

A tsundere filled VN about stocks on the moon. It's a decent length, ends on a cliffhanger, and the ending leaves you unsatisfied.

It's not the best VN out there, in fact it's fairly cliche'd at times with some poor character development, but that doesn't mean it's awful and the story, characters, and relationships get a lot more development and depth added to them as the story nears the conclusion. This results in a very stilted feeling with the majority of the content in the last hour or so of the game with the first 95% of it just laying the foundation.

Edit after playing EP.2:

The poor character development of the main character seems to exist more as a way to juxtapose how the main character was at the start of this game to how he exists at the start of the sequel. All his development takes place in the final sentences of this game, and his growth is seen at the start of the next VN.

After seeing how Episode 2 plays out I have to say that this series as a whole is a lot more impressive than I thought it was going to be. I say if you have any interest then definitely give this game a change, but know that if you get hooked Episode 3 won't be out for a while.

Overall 7.5/10
