Another recent buy is the Amnesia Later Visual Fanbook, and Clock Zero Visual Fanbook. The Amnesia Later VFB came with the Snow White Ukyou print (lol). The Clock Zero portrait DOES NOT come with the VFB. It came when I bought the game and I’m using it as a marker in the photos. Lots of photos underneath and potential spoilers for Amnesia (Later) and Clock Zero.
The epilogue is unlocked after clearing all the characters, and you progress from the start till the part when the CZ group members bury the time capsule after successfully finishing their assignments. However, you must not enter anyone’s individual route (aka you remain somewhat “neutral” in terms of favourability). You can’t spread yourself “too thin” by interacting with all CZ members, as you’ll end up failing the assignments (well, at least that leads you to another ending). The best way is to interact with just two members.
Needless to say, as this will include my concluding thoughts of the whole game too, there are spoilers revolving around the whole CZ game! It’s really best to read the reviews of each individual route before this.
Last in Clock Zero (PSP) is Kaidou Takato (CV: Namikawa Daisuke), the cheerful and friendly transfer student who is well-liked by others. Takato is actually a kid genius, whom actively does research work. He takes a keen interest in Nadeshiko (and Riichirou) from the start, and Nadeshiko also admires him. Again, this route, starts the same like all others so you may want to read the first part of my review for Riichirou for details. /lazy Some parts overlap with Madoka’s too so there are copy-paste repeats lol. Takato’s route can branch off to Rain’s ending so this review will cover that too.
Next in Clock Zero (PSP) is Hanabusa Madoka (CV: Toriumi Kousuke), the younger Hanabusa brother who is a year younger than Nadeshiko. As Madoka often sticks around his older brother Nakaba, Nadeshiko basically gets to interact with the two siblings in this route. The cheerful Nakaba often doesn’t think through his words carefully, and the seemingly emotionless Madoka is constantly in favour of Nakaba – add in the serious Nadeshiko and you get quite amusing conversations. However, you’ll see that Nakaba is actually a pretty good older brother and that Madoka is not as straight as he appears to be. Again, this route, starts the same like all others so you may want to read the first part of my review for Riichirou for details. /lazy
Continuing after Shuuya in Clock Zero (PSP), I went after Saionji Toranosuke (CV: Sugiyama Noriaki) since he is the last from the “white bunny” side (you’ll understand better in future reviews). Toranosuke, or Tora which is his later nickname, is the same year as Nadeshiko. As you can tell from his looks, he’s a rebellious kid who accepts challenges readily and regularly skips class to go elsewhere or play games. However, he is unexpectedly good at looking out for and taking care of others, as he is an older brother to his two younger brothers. Again, his route, starts the same like all others so you may want to read the first part of my review for Riichirou for details. /lazy However, since he skips all of the after-class homework stuff, he has some interesting interactions in addition.
Continuing after Riichirou in Clock Zero (PSP), I decided to go after Tokita Shuuya (CV: Ishida Akira) due to obvious bias reasons, plus his character was such an oddball it amused me to no ends. Shuuya is a year younger than Nadeshiko, rather knowledgeable due to the massive reading he does, and works as a kid model. However, he speaks like a lord would do in the past and is very, very forgetful. His route, like all others, starts the same so you may want to read the first part of my review for Riichirou for details. /lazy
Clock Zero (PSP) seemed to fall nicely after Shinigami to Shoujo (with similar ideas of time and stuff, with quite a heavy dash of sad moments), so I decided to do this first. I went after Kanou Riichirou (CV: Maeno Tomoaki) first since many said he’s a fitting first choice. He’s the obligatory childhood friend but as compared to some of the childhood friends in other games, he’s not as annoying (lol) and despite acting all cool in the beginning, he warms up quickly and has plenty of sweet moments later in the game.
