Romance, battles, drama, conspiracy and a little bit of “ecchi”.
Those are the elements that define the most controversial game on the 3DS(? Although he has no skills, Seed is on a relationship with Hadzuki the daughter of a famous doujou and the two dream about getting married.
Much of the story elements were preserved and the contents that got removed were just those stupid out-of-place H-scenes typical to Eroges.
The elements that got changed were replaced by new concepts that made the characters far more interesting (at least, in my opinion).
Seed can be a wimp in the beginning, but different from most recent Galges, this isn’t used to give more focus to the heroines instead.
