There are certain things that are familiar with romantic comedies, novels of the depiction of life no doubt awaiting it at this point: a scene involving a maid's dress; a heroine who can cook; a day in the amusement park; and some kind of misunderstanding based on the boob. NinNinDays from Qureate has everything of these things … and the lead ing lady of Sumire is a healthy one. Because why?
The “ninja” element is used to explore the conflict between modern life culture, urban life and the traditions of traditional, rural communities. Sumire, coming from the traditional valley of the traditional ninja, is unlucky and innocent in the ways of our world, but both he and his entourage & # 39; a meat-eaten bun. NinNinDays is a lot of fun to learn by learning to accept and even acknowledge your mistakes – and you'll understand that good relationships can use this as a solid foundation. With an apology to Ru Paul, "If you don't like yourself, how do you want to love someone else?"
As the story progresses, the ways in which the protagonist and Sumire support each other help them understand the things they need to work on – and that it's okay to ask for help sometimes. It is a fascinating, surprisingly repetitive story – if a tad intertwined at times – and many conclusions reveal a different way of looking at how a person experiences a major area of change in one's life and perspective. It is a beautifully illustrated novel; the artist AkasaAi, last seen designing the basic Princess Aria on NinNinDays & # 39; solidmate Prison Princess, did a great job with the art, with the event scenes, in particular, having a real sense of presence and vitality in them… especially when the Sumire cup appeared. Which it is, often. Ahem.
In the meantime, a common alliance between the rival and Sumire is using E-Mote's attractive technology "with bloody personalities, best known for their use in popularity." Copper series. E-Mote certainly extends some life to Sumire, though it is clear that the NinNinDays team are not technologically savvy like Nekopara & # 39; s Sayori. Sumire evidently uses consistent, "stock" images created for his different icons instead of beautiful designs, with a body language that looks naturally different from each line of conversation seen in Sayori's work. It's a little nitpick, but if you've enjoyed Nekopara before, it looks great.
Local acting is also a little wonky from a technical standpoint, including dozens of typos, inaccurate monophones, a single state of confusion between "the past" and the "late" and the mysterious that puts a space behind the thirst, but nothing makes it unreadable. The original tone of the English script goes well – and the translation holds up well in the Japanese voice without being overly stressed.
In summary, this is a good-looking novel with good presentation but with its short duration, lack of narrative ambition and bad edges in terms of location. It won't make you like that genre when you first arrive, but longtime fans will be more forgiving of its flaws.
