[Review] 『one night, hot springs』 A Visual Novel

Title: one night, hot springs

Developer: npckc

 Description:

a young transgender woman goes to the hot springs.

Haru is invited by her old friend Manami to spend a night at the hot springs. All Haru wants to do is enjoy th ehot springs like everyone else, but she doesn’t want to cause any trouble…

ONE NIGHT, HOT SPRINGS is a visual novel. Play as Haru, a young transgender woman, and join her at the hot springs in Japan.

Play time: ~30 minutes

Review:

A short visual novel. Once I opened this app, I was welcomed by a now loading screen in cute pastel fonts. And then comes the hot springs visual in clean art and pastel-ish theme. I love it! Immediately clicking start button and play.

Unlike other visual novels I read before, the story flows in natural and relaxing manner. No exaggerated things. And it’s refreshing for me to read this kind of story once in a while. The main topic is rather unusual for a visual novel but predictable. Thanks to the short playtime, it doesn’t get too boring. I’m glad the developer keeps it simple so the message is delivered alright.

I reread it several times after that. Probably just as curious as Haru in finding out what the other characters would react to her answer xD
