えれくと!| Erect! Review

?????

A new interpretation from construction of misconception to bias remotion, redefine of what to be Succubus. Idea of female demon that appears to have intercourse in dream is a mainstream no more as culture and technology discrepancy allowed them into improvement and coexistence alongside human society privy to outside boundary. That boundary is known as Lilithtia Academy, the school that defies the flat abstraction and changes the presence of Succubus meant to be. A heavenly devilish garden one won’t ever want to return from once he tasted a step in. A completely distinct entity just through a single gate leads to a lovey-dovey cultural exchange adventure with, naturally, succubus in truly a utopia, or befitting a dreamland of cookery-featured heroine. Whilst learning the world of succubus and all the succupedia terminology might considered trivial, staying a hermit for some minutes – hours for some and days for me -, worth the stimulation served. In contrast to infamous alluring tendency, succubus here aren’t just as drug-sweet looking on flesh, but as are hypnotic-capable cuteness that their adorability is much impact to reverse the canonic perspective of their being. In the tears of disorder, stream of shimoneta, pool of temptation, and sea of heart-melting beauty moe, prepare to get ‘vigor’ squeezed in an instant as one inevitably sprout to Erect!

?????

Explicit up to its content, though the decision this is all what the title got up their sleeve is not in me. Set far aside those who lack reading capability and pointed out this supposed to be pasted with nukige tag, most of the CG consist of H ones one not over-maniac – like a certain reader – would definitely take this into top satisfaction like what succubus ought to induce. Well, it’s all about succubus, indeed. Protagonist with excessive vitality out of nowhere, sadly just basic penetration points, footjob, and some variations over the use of magic, the available H-scenes provide already extraordinary assisting material. Obviously girls excluded. That said though doesn’t mean all the H-scenes are killing-hot, in fact mostly are sweet as vanilla that deviate from what expected of succubus. To the last, as dangerous as succubus culture might have poisoned my mind, it’s my perspective writing since objectively, the scenes actually are hard enough thanks to massive vigor the protagonist had. As for my favorite, is the time Luna gone out of control due to pressure of her worry, oh I love that sinister giggles. Seriously, what the crap I’m pointing about.

????? ????? ????? ?????

Sounds a little convincing that this is what it is, but assured well-viable reason. Certainly CG are mostly made out of H-scenes, but even so the story did its job decent enough to be enjoyable as so said moege. On Luna route especially as the actual feeling is really felt upon her matter. The jokes – both normal and succubus one – are pretty good too and that comical expression of Lamia-sensei I can’t get enough of (w). Too bad that it covered only a little of succubus world and lack of more serious problem, or appropriate to say entirely to service as focal point rather than solid development despite a potential and promising groundwork with high scalability is the backstage flaw. So, why not in me isn’t just a baseless denial to usual mouthful amateur which I’m not reflecting enough on giving up peeking through their comments. The story is well, neat enough, though then the story is just an icing on the cake. The actual magic comes to where the H-scene didn’t make its appearance into the CG. They’re unbelievably outstanding, refreshing there to fill the loss. Some are charming, some are cute, some are sweet, and some are romantic. Not just high on content, but as well on beauty to composition. In retrospect, most of non-H CG here are far better than those of H-free VN yet I played, aesthetically and elegantly, not to mention cropped at perfect frame. Getting to this point, it’s decided, those nukige-addled chaste just didn’t get the essence, no pun intended.

??????????

In Mitsuoka town, the calm, mature, and hard to surprise protagonist Ogiwara Kento live together with his florist father, Ogiwara ibuki, helping with chores and the shop – Florist Ogiwara, idiot talks with his idiot friend, … (what was his name again?), doing flower arrangement for loyal customer, Rieru, and and got his ‘daily routine’ done one the way to attend his flower planting as member of Mitsu High’s horticultural club. Without knowing each other name, greeting the girl by the window – inside Lilithtia academy – from far outside the fence had weirdly become his ‘daily routine’ somehow. On another view – marked with eyecatch noticing the change of perspective to a heroine which later ended with another view end notice, which has been done on each change of point of view – the weakening ill girl by the window, Luna was actually know about Kento, asked her maid, Rieru to get her his arrangement for a glint of essence in that helped her by little. Perhaps influenced by his father’s work, Kento himself working hard to become a florist, arrangement training with leftover flower and the like of volunteer work at Trinity International Hospital. Soon he went arranging at the hospital, an emergency crowded the place, invited Kento to see what happened, only for him to slightly recognize the incoming patient was the girl by the window and worried Rieru. Seeing Kento within the crowd, the impulse broke Luna’s limit and made her ‘Shift’ into a beautifully nonexistent-esque ‘Feather’ appearance, that is succubus, just that her eyes reflect no hints of light. Kento in the end fainted from getting his vigor sucked. Miraculously he didn’t die right away, which was unusual, thanks to his massive out-of-nowhere vigor.

?????

The sudden knowledge of succubus existence apparently not giving much surprise or likely the too sudden revelation didn’t give the actual feeling to it. Regardless, by Rieru’s request, Kento agreed to help thick-blooded Luna who had been refused to do vigor suction (吸精/Kyuusei) due to her needs of strong vigor subsist in human deprived the life of others. Way to resolution days after some time, Rieru forced to break through Luna’s obstinacy so Kento could get in and thus their fated meeting along with Luna’s complete replenishment of vigor in her ‘Revitalization Period’.

?????

Official-surfaced normal school built specially only for succubus and incubus enrollment, utilize curriculum of total 5 years – 3 first for regular program and 2 last for special major program, Lilithtia International Academy. In purpose to help and keep Luna stay in pace living her school days, Kento began his commuting life as transfer student at that dreamlike boundary of Lilithtia. Together with royal princess Luna, voluptuous maid Rieru, prideful high-standing Tia, classy elite Euphy, and walking-shimoneta-generator Eris and Tia’s assistant maid Noeru as side chara, the now infamous protagonist started the cultural exchange on the spring of his third year.

?????

Although it’s not quite noticeable on every slide, the opening movie follows the trend of pseudo-animated CG with simple effect on the transition. Not much to say as it fell to standard category of a VN op. Good enough at giving a rough idea of the storyline and lovey-dovey part, which I hate that sort of CG spoil.

????? ????? ?????

The caption wasn’t there for campaign slogan. Every parts of common route’s routines in the like of daily chit-chat, HR, and club activities were concerted fresh culture shock experiences. Of why succubus decided to live alongside human, their tendencies, etiquettes, and some other basics were explained in the class conveniently. Take ‘Engage’ for instance, was a thing similar to marriage where succubus swear their oath of kiss to their loved one which was like one way dependency that they can only then receive vigor from their partner. The act of kissing itself isn’t a loose affection as it’s especially reserved for the partner. Such sweet lineament of succubus entrusting kiss only to one they really love. Basically it’s an affirmation of a succubus dedication towards her one and only master she loves and Engage is a solid proof of that.

?????

Of course not forgotten to know the heroines closer beside comical boke and protagonist’s tireless tsukkomi-but-somehow-not-really and shimoneta, the ‘hard’ way though. Stealing the first spot was Tia the time she guide Kento around the school out of favor. Then Euphy with her excuse of healing Kento’s faster after taking care of his wounded finger. Tia’s Shift problem was somehow turned to foot play and cut the matter no further. And next one was for Luna required vigor replenishment and soon the unexpectedly resistant Rieru in need to refill burst out vigor. Lastly, Euphy in her revitalization period gone wild and became forceful at Kento’s room. The best, not from all those and out the hard way, is the flower viewing moment with Luna and Kento’s small talk about his mother. The true route is a definite absolute right from the get-go.

?????

Skill examination session is where a pair request the examination ring – plain silver round ring turning gold over vigor accumulated in manner of loading circle – and do intercourse. Means the turning point is right ahead to the one whose flag points good enough to be highest among 4. The routing is simply conventional 2 choices (sometimes 3) picks which at most one doesn’t do anything and the other would pop a notification sound telling the point towards the partner in response has raised.

ルナスティア・アスティール

?????

ルナ/Luna, purely cute and innocently assertive royal princess of top-in-hierarchy succubus, inherited strong deep blood of succubus that consuming food didn’t recover her vitality. So cute that her adorability has disarrayed the limit of my tolerance to discern the distinction between pure cuteness and bewitching cuteness. Though Inamura Rio of Dracu Riot was crowned the best innocent cuteness and top potential law-sided waifu, apparently Luna broke the record as compound of moe and eroticism on the level of pure bewitching cuteness which nearly violate the logical safe margin. Honestly tells the truth out her mind on seeing a wrong thing instead of laugh it off as a joke is really a straight lovely behavior of hers. Love to read, hence a library committee member, and having a lot of cute dreams likewise shut-in princess the way she was. Seriously, so adorable, just imagine her troubled “hau~” whine has the effect of me hugging myself (feels familiar somewhere), so as the time she timidly hide behind the curtain and her epilogue appearance. In common words, succubus can’t be this cute. Redundancy aside, so cute!

?????

Calling it a pair tied by red string of fate is not an exaggeration in the slightest, like a fairy tale of girl by the window saved by a knight. Even their examination rings shattered to pieces from exceeded limit of vigor measured. Look at whole, the turning point diverted to other routes is more a service. Nothing worth other than Luna route since the prologue and it’s actually weirder and such bastard that Kento could nonchalantly looking after other than Luna just after talking such heroic remarks and informed well on how much value a kiss for succubus. Well at least Kento here wasn’t an annoying donkan type and impressive that he capable of preventing another rise of problems with right words.

?????

Up her matter, Kento had a big valuable dream while she on the other side she had declared to succeed her royal family officially, shouldering the weight of guiding all succubus that she shouldn’t supposed to have time for another job and even the condition requiring Kento to be on her side. That meant she crushed Kento’s dream of becoming a florist. Kento brought her to the hill of flower viewing, getting her spit her feelings and worries, only for Kento to giving her an obvious solution of not giving up on either dream for them together a pair of two individuals. Luna on her peak of happiness invoked the miracle of dress change likewise bridal gown befitting true royalty.

リリエラ・チューラック

?????

リエル/Rieru, or maybe Riel but it doesn’t sound feminine I prefer the literal, the same with her twin sister Noeru. Outgoing active and having great physical ability. Not too prominent at magic though and not doing well in study. An unusual among succubus which that she got embarrassed to and poor at erotic things. Luna’s servant and at the same time her best friend.

Apparently this is the point where everything didn’t seem right to all ends later. Since Rieru route itself mostly all about lovey-dovey and not featuring any peculiar high-quality events, moreover think I was out of essence (hail the best girl Luna! w), I might as well express all the disappointment of how fate looks to be distorted in cruel way. In the failure of ‘daily routine’ reasoning, felt really big sense of incompatibility on other routes but Luna. As pointed, the diverted focus from Luna is like the prologue, believed to be the source of this problem, was too outstanding to be a joke. Luna was indeed, too kind that it hurts seeing her being so painfully kind, unrestricted not only with Rieru, I felt like crying. More of a heartbreaking, especially the time they made it purposely making Luna the witness of Kento and Rieru’s engagement oath the time Rieru parents came for that. Perhaps the fact Rieru was the closest friend Luna had that it’s so much painful to see. Much more admiration and reverence to Luna for her having solid determination of prioritizing others than herself.

ティアナ・ジル・リリスティア

?????

ティア/Tia, executive president of Lilithtia Academy, daughter of the manager of Lilithtia International School just as her surname tells. Had a great self-confidence, hard-to-self, and dishonest-to-self tsundere. Or at least she was until Kento melt her switch the time Tia, who couldn’t do successful Shift – in spite of ‘Primal’ – before, managed to change forcefully into her Feather form of which state uncontrollable and berserk. The quite romantic calming method rewards Kento from his effortful chase for Tia with Engage as Tia’s first kiss. The highly proud almighty Tia was no more, replaced with full mode deredere. A drastic change by the power of love, to say. No longer doing things based on what she saw as natural things fit her to do, picking the easiest way of never questioning them as they’re obvious which put her at ease, Tia now dedicate herself to Kento. Something to point for the last, Kento’s inconsistency chara was ridiculous, where in other routes he insisted on not giving up something to fulfill another, he here decided to change his objective for Lilithtia with excuse of naturally change it on the way. The development was actually great here and supposed to be much more amusing, just if i didn’t keep reminded to Luna.

ユーフォリア・トリニティ

?????

ユフィ/Euphy, the well-known flawless beau monde of succubus, both as nurse in her father’s hospital and as former prez of Lilithtia Academy. In her last year medical major in Lilithtia and fitting best her nature mature glamour image of succubus type yamato nadeshiko, rolling as the prez of Gardening Club. A gentle kind and enchanting senpai who could control any situation through her smile. Began with Euphy and Kento registered as partner on skill exam for Euphy share similar objective to have a partner on dance party she had to attend. It’s only for convenience at first, but Kento decided to confess regardless of their status gap. The development from this part is yet another anjoyably intriguing one despite less lovey-dovey. The waltz brought the last step of the ending and as for the epilogue, from the short description of how Kento decided to become independent first before marrying Euphy and the hardships that caused. There’s also time where Euphy was about to pull out from nursing, though Kento told her not to giving up one dream just to support another. It finally came to the day they’re working together as married couple.

?????

エリス・エロティス/Eris, truculent the way succubus-in-concept are perhaps, with her amorous sexy voice running the prez of Pleasure Research Club, which she’s the only member if I perceive it right. Not exactly a dedicated route, but rather an Extra consists of Eris’ first revelation, threesome services, twin-sisters service, Lamia-sensei session, and choosing Eris in the end. Instant advancement to Engage and even changing the non-Primal Eris to be capable of doing Shift. No unique form though but I got a feeling it’s made stark naked on purpose since it’s Eris we talk about.

????? ????? ?????

The bgm is just okay I guess. The best is on the ed which I like the theme song, 僕らの色. A little seconds-consuming they didn’t put transition speed in the config menu and the enforced windows size of 1024×768 was troublesome. I had to hide the frame of tl aggregator, press it thin and reduce the font size so it could stay at the bottom for reading optimized. Seems like a bug ruining the title theme song the moment confirmation dialog on loading page pop out which a tiny problem to overlook. Round it up, I mark outstanding the overall impression and of course, while it’s foolish to say it again but for the closing emphasis, all credits to Luna.
