Marvelle’s Note: This is a legacy review, meaning I found it on either my word docs or my tumblr. I unfortunately do not have the images associated with it anymore. I may do a replay and update this, but for now, there is only text.
No sooner than I buy the Shall We Date? Scarlet Fate and decide to do a let’s play of it, Voltage releases a new character for BMP2!
MY WALLET!!! No fancy coffee for me for the next month…
I… was actually so engrossed in this route that I completely forgot to take screens of all the good parts (hint – there are a TON of good parts).
Max is a really fun guy. Sure, like all the other May-December relationships in Voltage games, we spend a lot of time with age jokes, but after the first couple of chapters, they wind down.
Max is a really playful guy, and in this route the MC is not only more straightforward, she also meets his teasing with teasing of her own. It’s honestly one of the best routes I’ve read in a Voltage game, and we all know how addicted I am to them.
The main plot deals with returning the “magic” of the arts back to Charles Kingdom. Max isn’t actually in line for the throne. His older sister is currently queen. However, she is more of a straightforward character and while she is great at the “living” part of managing the country, she fails at the “culture” aspect.
By the end, they both realize that their strengths are what’s needed to manage the country effectively. Max is an artist, so we get the usual stray cat-like tropes with him, but the usual initial aversion is replaced by playful spontaneity. He’s also super flirtatious and manages to make the cheesiest sayings romantic. Also, MC realizes she loves Max early in the story, and they actually become a couple waaaay before it ends too.
Their relationship is so much fun to read! I’ll have to do a more detailed review soon, because this is one route that deserves the several hours it takes to do a review like that!
My heart scale is defined as follows – 5 hearts = a story everyone will fall in love with, regardless of preferences; 4 hearts = a well-done story that people who love the concept will adore, and people who don’t may end up liking it; 3 hearts = if you like this type of story or this type of hero, then you will enjoy this, but those who do not like either of those things will probably not; 2 hearts = it had potential, it squandered it; 1 heart = just a waste of time from the get-go; 0 hearts = why was this made?
