As I expected, but not in a bad way
As I thought, the much-hyped "sweat wiping" and "steam blowing" in this game are just a small part of the things you'll encounter. Basically a standard "visual novel" ADV game with added minigames, this one stays fresh by keeping chapters (divided into six "rounds") short.

descriptionThis is a text base dating simulation game where your affection determines the winner in the boxing ring.
On the night of your first day in a new school, one of your friends takes you to the gym and shows you the school's secret club. To your amazement, the boys in your class are fighting to become king, the strongest boxer in the ring. Some of them make you nervous at first and others do not strike you as the type who would compete in boxing matches, but as you become familiar with them, you realize what a vital role you play behind their success.
It is because you are cheering for him, that is why he can rise to his feet before the count of ten. It is because you are patching up his wounds that he can enter the next match.
A girl in love is truly the goddess of victory.

I have to say that as far as love sims go, this is a great way to get yourself out of the doldrums. With the sweat wiping and the steam blowing you have a lot of fun. But it is the sounds from the voice actors that just get you cracking up.
The story lines are your typical girl goes to school meets hot guy(s), tries to get guy(s) to like her, they train and end up falling in love. Very typical shoujo. However, you need to be able to read some Japanese to play this game since it is not fully voiced. I can read some Japanese, but not alot. I did find a strategy guide online and still enjoyed the game alot especially with all the pretties.
You will especially like the artwork if you like Hisaya Nakajo's work. She wrote the manga Hana Kimi, so if you like that then you will really like the artwork.
As with typical love sims, you have the mini games, which are very fun a require very little thinking. Very easy to understand what you are supposed to do. Touch here, touch there, it pretty much is self explanatory.
The voice acting is well done and have several well known seiyuu. But when you start to hear the ooohing and aaahing, basically the moaning, you can't help but get a little smile on your face. You have to check this game out just to hear what I am talking about. I could not help cracking up and I do also advise the use of headphones as well, if you are in public.
It was definitely worth the money and I totally recommend it especially when you need a little pick me up in your day.

Basically a standard "visual novel" ADV game with added minigames, this one stays fresh by keeping chapters (divided into six "rounds") short. One character's storyline takes about two hours to complete. There are plenty of CGs and, unlike most love adventure titles, it does not take forever and a day to get someone to fall for you.
That said, the minigames are fun and somewhat embarassing (use headphones in public to avoid people hearing the boys' groans of pleasure) but there are times when you have to shout into the mic, so...you've been warned. :-)
Great fun, but please be advised that it is helpful to have at least SOME knowledge of written Japanese. This game is NOT full voice, but only includes voices during select scenes.
