Discussion Rules

  • Please use spoiler tags for major events in the current chapter/part and any content in future chapters/parts.
  • When asking for help, do your best to provide context. Pasted text, screenshots, descriptions, etc. Unlike book clubs we can’t flip to relevant pages, so we may need a little help identifying exactly what is being discussed.
  • Feel totally at ease to ask questions or give your thoughts, any time! Clubs live and die by participation, and asking whatever question you have, no matter how silly it may seem, helps others who are reading it and even the answerer themselves.
  • Have fun, and do your best to interpret anything said with as much good faith as possible :slightly_smiling_face:

Just finished this part. I think it might have been a little longer than the other side B’s? Still pretty short though.

In summary: Helvética’s side A made me like him a lot more as a character….side B made me remember why I hadn’t liked him so far. As a romantic option, he just comes off way too much like someone who has read “the game”. What was with the whole “lol I was just faking that I was too nervous to hold your hand” bit at the end??? And also the whole bit about not wanting the MC to hang out with Luka and Adam was bleh. It felt too much like a diversion technique like him flirting with other women in public to the extent that Carmen warns the MC about it is somehow comparable to her hanging out once a week with her friends. Bleh bleh bleh . I feel like for some people he could maybe come across as jokey and charming but it all rubbed me the wrong way.

Since helvética loves scores, after both of his parts I give helvética as a character…:drum:70点! Helvética as a romantic option….:drum:-10点!

Now finally to scarecrow! He has continued to be an absolute sweetheart throughout so I can’t wait (though am a little scared for him if his part follows the trend :face_with_peeking_eye:)

Final Fantasy VII reference

What is Sepiroth doing here :joy:


This is basically how I felt about it so not much more to say. I was rooting more for Kuro than Helvetica in his own route.

I’m still really confused by this guy. This was kinda out of nowhere??? And I thought his character design was too high-effort to be just some random dude. Now I’m really wondering if he’ll show up again or be somehow relevant in the final chapters…idk


He’s actually a character from SideKicks, a game that came out before this one set in the same universe. A couple others also show up as an easter egg.


Ohh, that’s pretty cool and makes a lot of sense.
