Hello, hello, everyone! :star: It's Maki.
After a long, loooong absence from MM stuff, here is my very, veeeery belated submission for Chapter 9!! It is the result of about 3 weeks of work. This one had a bit of an adventurous background story to it, haha...
Initially, Chapter 9 was supposed to be a video. But I didn't want to spend as much time on it as I did for Chapter 7 (with Suzuka, for those who can remember), so I wanted to make it a music video - which failed with vigour. ^^; In the end, I just decided to do what I really tried to avoid doing: A Visual Novel.
I've been using Ren'Py for about 4 years now, however with so many breaks and interruptions and pauses in between learning the program that I... can't say that my skills are good. *haha* So, you might find some ugriness every here and now, but hey! I FINISHED A GAME FOR THE FIRST TIME!! :iconhappyblueplz: *dances to Jellyfish Jam jamming in the background*

With this chapter, a lot of character development has been wrapped up. Actually, almost too much! :iconfinallyplz:;; I'm sorry if it is unrealistic...


I borrowed several characters from different artists - I'm very sorry in advance if I made them OOC in any way!! I think I asked most of you, but.... ehe... perhaps I overdid it with the dialogue. ;; :iconocryplz: I'M SO SORRY, YOU MAY BEAT ME TO A PULP IF YOU WISH SO-----!! ;;;

If you find any bugs, errors or whatever, please do tell me!! I'll fix them asap.
(MP to be calculated later... I... promise.... 휴◡휴;; Maybe I'll edit the description, too... maybe.)

Wow, I really get the feeling that I make the game sound fancier than it really is with the text on the preview AHAHAHAHA ;;; //RUNS

DO YOU EVEN HAVE A CLUE HOW MUCH I LIKE THIS.

I'm simply blown away. First of all, your artworks are beautiful: clean and defined, perfect for a visual novel!
Second I just love your storytelling. Seriously, I admire it - the dialogues are lively and convincing, the music fits and highlights the atmosphere in an amazing way and you can put yourself in the character's situation. The general idea is nice, too! You know I don't like Maria that much, nevertheless I almost cried during the game. (Additionally, the Kagome song gave me the chills...)

(Also I feel honoured to be mentioned in the credits orz) I do not even know how you did this whole thing. /IT-noob /goes back to corner and promotes this valuable masterpiece

I'M SO PROUD OF YOU I DON'T EVEN HAVE WORDS OKAY

- *clicks on the icon*
- foafkl omg the music, THE fadasARTTTT
- It just made ding when I clicked on that hoooo
- Hngh oh good reading timing in the  beginning, yup pretty nice 
- I want a graphic section sparkle sparkle
- Hngh Arata you kind guy you!
- Suzuka~ Professionial and cool as always~

- Oh my, a chat between Suzuka and Maria
- The end... already? ;~;





Hgh ich schreib dir jetzt auch noch auf Dengrish, weil ich voll cool und so bin und es eh wohl in keiner einzigen Sprache zum Ausdruck bringen könnte, wie sehr ich von deinem ersten Visual Novel beeindruckt bin. ;_;

Sparklesparklepoints:
- Super schöne Art Works, deine Zeichnungen sind sauberer geworden und auch dein Cell-Shading-Stil wirkt noch ausgereifter
- Passend gewählte Hintergründe, Musik und Sounds
- Menüs sehr P-universe-getreu, genauso die Dialoge (bei einigen Stellen musste ich wirklich lachen ´v`)
- Technisch echt ne starke Leistung und vor allem sehr aufwändig, meinen Respekt

Ernsthaft, ich kenn die Charaktere aus MM ja leider nicht so gut und dennoch fand ich sie im Spiel sehr lebendig und auch sympathisch. Ha ha, da wünscht man sich glatt einen Anime zu eurer Gruppe /shots herself) Einige kleine Punkte sind mir aufgefallen, die du aber gerne nicht lesen brauchst, weil es wirklich nur meine 2cents sind von wegen Verbesserungsvorschläge. orz

Optionsmenü:
- Helpsection mit der Weiterleitung Probleme zu haben (Browser wird geöffnet, aber kein File/Link)
- Labeling im Haupt- und Untermenüs ist möglicherweise einen Ticken nach oben verrutsch bzw. etwaws groß geraten /shots herself again for mentioning unimportant stuff

Wie du siehst, hab ich nicht viel "ungriness" gesehen, es ist wirklich ein rundum geniales Ergebnis geworden. Weiter so liebes ♥
Darauf kannst du wirklich stolz sein. uvu

I have no words... I'd love to express my feels about the awesomeness incarnate that is this VN, but no words would do it justice... :iconreallymanlytearsplz:
The story, the dialogues, the sprites, the background, the music, the effects... everything's perfect... :iconmanlytearsplz:

I've been thinking about making a VN again, as a sort of epilogue to Ruushiro's Ch.9 submission, but right now I realised how futile this endeavour will be. No matter how much effort I put into it, it will never reach the level of perfection you have reached with yours... :iconokayguyplz:
I'll just roll back into bed and despair of my shitty art and stuff... :iconhttgplz:

...
....
.....
......
.......

Oh, who am I kidding? I SHALL STRIVE TO MAKE A VN THAT MAKES YOURS PALE IN COMPARISION!!! :iconraginglenplz:
MARK MY WORDS, MAKI! SOMEDAY I SHALL SURPASS YOU! SOMEDAY!!! :iconholyshitmuffinsplz:

Maki :iconsobbplz:

I can't believe I'm one of the first people commenting -- BUT THIS VN IS PERFECTION. :iconmanlysmileplz:

Seriously the story telling and the music and the graphics and the effects...everything was so good :iconsobbplz: /can't stop crying
Maria has always been one of my favorite characters in MM and her two-sided personality (or three, or four...:iconuh2:) was always interesting to hear about (even if I never really RPd much with her :iconmanlytearsplz: but still). I love her :icondesireyouplz: And I was so happy about the end and how things were resolved....:iconsobbplz: So much cry. Can't contain. Feels.
