Why did I end up with this game? Well, I finished Renai Banchou but find it hard to summarize since nothing really happens. I also tried Wand of Fortune but the chain of events made me sleepy.. so I’ll put it on hold for now. Then I picked this game cause the music is awesome. ♥
Saotome Gakuen is a school for those who wanna be idols or musicians. Our heroine Nanami Haruka got accepted into the school this year. Aspiring to be a songwriter, she has to work together with one of the boys as partners. Each year the school holds an audition and the winner will be accepted into the infamous Shining Agency. Their goal is to win that audition, and they have a year of school life to achieve it.
The principal, Shining Saotome, made a no-love rule for the school. Love is forbidden, which means that you can’t go out with anybody in the school. Anyone breaking this rule will be expelled immediately, closing his / her path to step into the entertainment world. Keeping this in mind, Haruka started her new exciting school life.
Haruka never had any friends before. Her only joy was music and her favorite idol, HAYATO. This made her a bit shy around people, but I think that makes her cuter than the typical dumb otome game heroines. There are music-related fun mini games too at the end of each month.
