Unlike the In Your Arms Tonight‘s POVs, the Serendipity Next Door‘s POVs contain no choices, no MC sprite options, and fewer chapters. As much as I enjoyed some of the stories for the insight into the secondary characters and how well the male lead’s voice came through, these are decidedly short stories rather than games with paths to puzzle out.
- Izumi POV: It’s cute and sweet, but I wanted to edit out a few lines that didn’t seem to click with the main route.
- Jinpachi POV: It’s funny and believable and makes the main story both much sweeter and much creepier at the same time.
- Keiichi POV: It won’t change your opinion of him or the relationship. He’s definitely consistent with the main story.
- Masaomi POV: The shorter format makes Masaomi’s story work better, and Masaomi’s internal dialogue and nearly complete uninterest in those around him are really entertaining.
Bottom Line: Good content with a high price tag. Unless you absolutely adore a character wait for a sale.
