This is the first game by Curefull Base. Yuuto was called out to the school rooftop by the student council leader Ayase after school. All five students who gathered there had a common trait: they had no friends. She asked them to pretend to be friends. She admitted that it was an outrageous request, but it was to help them build interpersonal skills so that they won’t still be alone after they graduated. Using her powers as the student council leader and persuasion skills, Ayase convinced all of them to participate in the trial.
“It’s fine if it’s just pretending. Well, it’ll work out because it’s not real. It’s not like we could make any real friends anyway.”
The ‘band of loners’ concept has been done multiple times before, but I’m still tempted to play this since the seiyuu cast is pretty strong, with Ogura Yui voicing Ayase and Tachibana Mao and Fujimori Yukina also playing prominent roles. There’s been a lot more worse games the past few months.
