About the game
A simple act of kindness can lead to friendships and being loved deeply. If you wish to experience this, this visual novel can make your desire come true. This dating sim game, originally released in 2017 under the “Noirsoft” label, has been adapted for the “PandaShojo” platform, making it accessible for players of all ages around the world to enjoy.
The main character, who is known for their kindness, is desired by various girls, all of whom have mental health issues. As their obsessions overlap, the relationships become increasingly difficult. Being desired by multiple girls may seem appealing, but the reality is not as simple.
On Valentine’s Day, the protagonist, Shoya Ichijo, meets Shizuka Tojo by chance. She was rejected and was unable to give her chocolates to her crush. To comfort her, Shoya accepts the chocolates instead.
As they become close friends, Shizuka’s love for Shoya becomes more and more excessive. Along with a childhood friend with intense feelings and a geeky girl who is convinced that Shoya is the one for her, the relationships becomes increasingly complicated.
Shoya’s life changed dramatically from the moment he received the chocolates.
