 CHARACTER TRAILER 

 IMPRESSIONS

The first thing that I immediately noticed from watching this trailer, is that the main character is a guy despite the game being named after a girl.  I wonder exactly why they named it YU-NO: a girl who chants love at the bound of this world if the main character was going to be a boy named Takuya Arima.  More so than that, the girl who seems as though she represents “Yu-No” seems mystical and elven.  However, maybe she is the final love interest in the true ending?

This visual novel does look interesting, as I think most of the girls are appealing; Ayumi Arima, Eriko Takeda, and especially Kaori Asakura.  I have only completed one Visual Novel before, but never one to full completion.  This looks interesting and is launching on Playstation 4, so I would definitely love to give it a go.

Something else is the little 8-Bit adventure part, that had me chuckling and would definitely be a great addition once you play through and understand the game.  However, it may contain spoilers so I definitely would not want to play beforehand just in case of them.
