Albeit I played/read not a lot of them, BL stories were always sort a guilty pleasure of mine, and since I stumbled on this while I was scrolling away bored on a sunday, I was like "Hey this could be interesting, lets try it!" but oh boy was I wrong, it wasn't interesting, it was so amazing it blew me away. The way the writer masterfully gets into the character's heads while also making their dialogue flow smoothly and fluidly yet akwardly at the same time really impressed me. This game also played with my heart strings by targetting my massive weakness for hurt/comfort (i did not realize i even had that weakness until i finished this game and took a while to self reflect) and it nails the asmosphere its going for very well. One last thing I want to add, I think that this game's size is one of its strongest points, It could have very easily dragged on for too long and ruin its own charm, or for the writer to get distracted with giving the player multiple choices, but no, every phase from the begining where it sets the tone and shows us the spark between the two right up to the bittersweet ending, I felt more immersed and invested than I remember being for any other story, BL or otherwise, in recent memory.
Phew that was quite a rant, its probably clear that this game got me quite worked up, heck I probably can go and praise it for another 2 paragraphs but I need to force myself to stop, because, as I'm writing this its 1 am and I'm supposed to wake up in 5 hours. Regardless, I enjoyed this wholehartedly for the story and for the care put into every aspect of this game, from the art to the UI and I look forward to try ebi-hime's other projects.
