I finished Jingai Makyou and all I got was this lousy t-shirt [edit: lack of a t-shirt]

After 14 hours of gameplay I cleared one of the main endings of Jingai Makyou, and my first reaction is that this has been the most pretentious eroge [edit: “visual novel”] I have ever played. It’ll take awhile to cobble together an official review, but for now I’ll say this: high production values alone do not a compelling epic make, not even if one of your staff members is named Yoda.

Genshiken and NHK reviews will have to wait until tomorrow evening as I think if I look at another line of Japanese text tonight my eyes are going to liquify and drip out of my head like someone from Air or To Heart or something.
