First Impression: H2O -Footprints in the Sand-



I recently started reading H2O -Footprints in the Sand- and I’m currently ~4 hours in. I’m playing the 「H2O √ after and another Complete story Edition」, this is the latest release (2009) which has the original VN (2006) and「√after and another」(2007) combined. I also recently found out this had an anime adaptation. I haven’t seen it so I just blindly go into this story…

Eden* They Were Only Two, On The Planet

Eden* is a small kinetic novel written by Kagami Yū (also known from ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two) and published by minori. Eden* got released as all-ages together with an 18+ patch under the name of eden* PLUS+MOSAIC. I read the all-ages version so I can’t say anything about H-scene quality or other differences in CGs.

So if you enjoyed one of them, you should check this out.
