Eroge Spotlight – Grisaia no Kajitsu

Eroge in June 2014 Eroge Releases is already released 2 days ago and I still don’t post any Eroge Spotlight for this month (June). Since I still don’t post any Eroge Spotlight, I decided that this week will be “Quadruple Eroge Spotlight” since I didn’t post Eroge Spotlight for 3 weeks ago, 2 weeks ago, and a week ago. It’s time for me to pay my “Eroge Spotlight” debt in this week.

So, I already looked at this month eroge releases and……………only 2 eroges from this month eroge releases that I think worthy enough to be put in my Eroge Spotlight for this month. Since I have 4 Eroge Spotlight spots for this month, that means 2 spots left for this month my Eroge Spotlight. So I decided to put 2 eroges in the past that got lucky to be put in my Eroge Spotlight in this month. Don’t worry, the other 2 eroges that got lucky to be put in my Eroge Spotlight are worthy enough to be played.

Well, here is one of 2 eroges that got lucky to be put in my Eroge Spotlight in this month, it’s Frontwing’s 10th year anniversarry title and the first series of Grisaia series, Grisaia no Kajitsu.

Company: フロントウイング (FrontWing)

Game site: グリザイアの果実

Release date: February 25, 2011

Mihama Academy – on the surface, a closed learning environment established to nurture students who find themselves at odds with the world around them; in actuality, an orchard-cum-prison built to preserve fruit that has fallen too far from its tree.

Whatever the circumstances behind its establishment, Mihama Academy is at present home to five female students, all with their own reasons for “enrollment.” For better or worse, each girl has established a routine obliging of her current situation; life moves at an idle, yet accommodating pace within the walls of Mihama.

Yet with the arrival of the institute’s first male student, the nearly preposterously opaque Kazami Yuuji, the students at Mihama begin to fall out of step with their predetermined rhythms. Will Yuuji prove to be the element the girls around him needed to take hold of their lives once more, or will the weight of their pasts prove too steep a wall to overcome?

And in the first place, just who is Kazami Yuuji? While the true nature of the “job” he is wont to alight to at the most haphazard of moments remains shrouded in secrecy, one thing is for certain – his encroachment upon the quiet orchard known as Mihama Academy will prove itself momentous in one way or another. And of course, one cannot discount the possibility that perhaps Yuuji himself carries the weightiest past of any of the students…

That was great opening. Really well made. The animation looks really nice and its OP song is really good. I like its OP Song. 9.5 out of 10 for this Opening.

For story, interesting synopsis and if you play this one, I’m sure you will find its story more interesting. Why? because its story is beyond from what you think just from reading its synopsis. The story has many elements in it (like comedy, some fights, and many more), so I’m sure you will like it. I already finished this eroge, so i know gow good it is. Besides that, you will get crying too sometimes when you read it, so I hope you prepare handkerchief or tissue to wipe your tears later (you can use them to fap too though).

For characters, the protagonist in Grisaia no Kajitsu is Kazami Yuuji. Ace number 9029, Yuuji is the “janitor” for the underworld. Tired of the life, he wanted to live a normal school life. Cool, philosophical, and minimalist, Yuuji is a realist…but also tsundere. Being very cautious, he always plans and scouts before action. Other than his occasional orthodontic military methods, he’s just a fit young man.

One word for this protagonist. Badass. Yup, this protagonist is definitely badass in a way or more and he is really strong at fighting too.

There are 5 heroines in Grisaia no Kajitsu. First is Sakaki Yumiko. 2nd grader of Mihama academy, the daughter of “East Beach Railway Express Group” tycoon. After Mihama academy had been established, she was the first student to enroll. Her characteristic is a waist-length black hair. Because of her bluntness and hard-to-please personality, her association with strangers is bad. Always trying to be alone, she hardly meets with the others. She always carries a box cutter with her and use it to threaten others when she’s getting angry. She reads so many books that she’s called a “Bookworm”, especially, mystery novel is her favourite. Although she’s such a lady, she changes completely in meal time, junk foods like a cup of fried soba noodles is her favourite dish.

Her character design kinda reminds me of Hitagi from Monogatari series. Well, her character design is drawn by Watanabe Akio, so I think no wonder about that.

Next is Suou Amane. 3rd grade of Mihama academy. she is Onee-san type who always takes care of others. For some circumstances, she skipped one school year at her previous school, so she is actually 2 years older than Yuuji. She is tall and has good great body style. Her family manages a long-established restaurant in Ginza, so she is good at cooking. Because her mother comes from Kyoto, when getting excited or panic, she sometimes talks in Kansai dialect. She has a deep interest in car and has acquired automatic two-wheeled vehicle license. She has a dirt bike which was remodeled to a cruiser called “Boba Tarou” (ボバ太郎) and is put in the garage of the academy.

Well if you ask me to describe her just in one word, I think “slut” is the best word to describe her just in one word (That’s for me, not sure for you) since her route had the most H-scenes in Grisaia no Kajitsu.

Next is Matsushima Michiru. 2nd grader of Mihama academy, a fake tsundere with bleached blond twin tail. she has a deep interest in tsundere character and tries to act like one. Her silly and energetic personality makes her becomes the mood maker of the class. Her study is bad. She always carries with her a shark-shaped pouch which contains lemonade sweets. Despite having difficulty with sour foods, she still try to drink 100% pure Vitamin C in order to “improve her intelligence”, as she said. She has encountered many bad lucks since her birth but always manages to get through them in one way or another.

Just as the explanation said, she is a fake tsundere, not a real one. Her character design kinda remind me of Mayoi from Monogatari series a little. Along with Makina and Sachi, I think she is the trio comedy in Grisaia no Kajitsu since those three that usually made the comedy in it.

Next is Irisu Makina. 1st grader of Mihama academy, an innocent and carefree girl. For some unexplainable reasons, it’s hard to understand her personality. In general, she can be explained in one word, “Fool”, but sometime her speeches and behaviors make people shed cold sweat. For that uniqueness, most of people who talk with her for 5 minutes will say “This girl is awful”. She adores Yuuji as a brother and Amane as a sister. She calls Yuuji “Onii-chan”. Although she has her own room in the dormitory, she always stays in Amane’s room. She always wears knee-socks with 2 different colors. Because of her parents work, she stayed in foreign countries until she was 6 so she can talk English.

Well, I think she is a genius and retard at the same time. If you read Grisaia no Kajitsu later, you will understand why I said she is a genius and retard at the same time. Also if there is her there, get ready to get laugh hard because when she did the comedy, the comedy that she did is so funny.

Last is Komine Sachi. 1st grader of Mihama academy, the maid of Mihama academy. Except when going to school, taking a bath or swimming, she always wears maid uniform. She said that everyone told her to wear maid uniform as much as possible. Polite and has strong sense of responsibility, she never fail to accomplish any request from others. In her action dictionary, there are only 3 words “receive” – “confirm” – “execute”. Because of that reason, sometimes she takes a joke too serious and causes a lot of trouble. Her favorite animal is shark. The shark-shaped pouch which Michiru carries around is made by her.

Yeah, A MEIDO!!! Well, actually she isn’t really a maid, but her character is really funny and most likely you will like her. Also Spoiler………………OSANANAJIMI!!!

Don’t have any eroge to play, then I recommend you to play Grisaia no Kajitsu. There are many reason why you have to play this eroge. It’s ranked 4th in Bishoujo Game Awards 2011 with ranked 3rd in Scenario category, 12th in Art category, 5th in Music category, 3rd in Movies/Opening category, and 11th in H-scenes category. Besides that, Amane also ranked 12th in Character category. Also, Grisaia no Kajitsu anime will be aired in this fall, so I think now this is a perfect chance for you to play it, so later you can tell how worse or better its anime adaptation. I’m sure Grisaia no Kajitsu is worthy enough for your precious time.

If you really want to play Grisaia no Kajitsu, This is my recommendation order of route for Grisaia no Kajitsu.

Makina -> Amane -> Sachi -> Michiru -> Yumiko

Well, that’s it for this Eroge Spotlight. Other Eroge Spotlight for this month (June) will come later. I’m still preparing it now.

  1. Ah! I love this game! I wish more Eroge MCs were like Mr. 9029, because he actually acts like a main character! I think this is one of the few VNs getting an anime adaptation that really deserves it! I just hope this anime version is at least half as good as the games!

    • I also love this game! The MC is definitely a badass one.
      I agree that it deserves to get an anime adaptation. I just hope more VNs get an anime adaptation (Especially for VNs that deserve to get an anime adaptation).

  2. I remembered this game being of exceptional quality and is LONG. One of my favorite games I played last year. You may might as well include Meikyuu and Rakuen as part of the trilogy, otherwise the story would feel incomplete. Oh, and Yuuji is one of the better MCs out there, you can’t deny that the common route is so interesting thanks to him. It is a waste that he isn’t voiced though.

    • Meikyuu and Rakuen will be featured in my Eroge Spotlight, the fastest near Fall and the slowest before Fall season anime ends since its anime air in this Fall.
