Description

Autumn.
With the leaves just starting to change color, a boy arrives at Yunagi Village.

The first person he meets is a girl handing out flyers — a cute, cat-eared waitress.

“P-Please come to Cafe Setaria! We hope to see you!”
Guided in by the waitress, he enters the shop and encounters another like-eared girl.
Thinking his reaction to her was strange, she asks the boy:

“Can you, perhaps, see these ears?”
The girls were in fact therianthropes, she said. Normal humans couldn’t see their ears and tails.
Now that he knows their secret, the boy is roped into working together with them at the cafe.

He’ll soon discover all the strange and interesting difference between their races.
Just another day at the Cafe Setaria.

    This is one of the best VN I’ve ever read. Yes, there are H scenes and bonuses, but the stories and the scenes mixed perfectly. A must-have IMO.
    And, I will always love Chieri! OMG!

    This is a cute moege centered around “beastfolk”… which essentially humans with animal ears and certain superhuman characteristics, such as enhanced strength and senses. Exactly as it says on the tin, pretty much. They wear talismans to hide their ears and tails from humans, but our protagonist is unaffected by these talismans… though still extremely oblivious to the point where the ears don’t even register until the girls ask if he can see them.

    This VN includes two dog girls and two cat girls, though only one of each can be romanced. More of that later… let’s first cover the characters.

    Chieri- Cat girl, Russian Blue breed, pettanko. Chieri might be considered a “polite tsundere” in that she doesn’t abuse the main character or say rude things to him… in fact everything she says is overly polite, yet she has the tsundere tendency to be dishonest with herself and with others. The youngest character, she has the typical A-cup angst of pettanko types, but she’s quite adorable. She secretly loves chocolate, leading me to think the game is named after her. I would say Chieri is best girl.

    Mikuri- Dog girl, Pomeranian breed, Miko. While Chieri has a tendency to be dishonest, Mikuri is overly honest, to the point of saying things in public that should probably be kept private. She also has a tendency to say things that could be interpreted in perverted ways, causing Chieri to react in interesting ways… though our protagonist is too oblivious to notice. Able to hear the voices of shinto deities and hailing from a small village consisting only of beastfolk, Mikuri is absolutely clueless about humans and their culture.

    Nana – Cat girl, American Shorthair, Gamer. The tallest female character in the game, Nana is childhood friends with Ichika. Unfortunately, neither character has a route, so there’s not much more to say about them except she has great artwork and wish she had a route.

    Ichika – Dog girl, toy poodle, intelligent and helpful. Ichika is the only character that doesn’t instantly run away and blush when asked whether or not humans and beastfolk can have children, and help both Mikuri and the protagonist in settling in to new worlds previously unfamiliar to them. As she lacks a route, there’s not much else to say about her.

    The story takes place in a Japanese cities that looks a lot like a German or Italian city, as it was apparently built by foreign immigrants. Though all of the characters are students, the story takes place in and around a cafe and the city square. The characters attended different schools and the VN focuses on interactions between the five named characters, so none of the scenes in this VN take place at school.

    As far as my rating of this game goes… I started with a base three stars, add one for adorable animal ear characters with decent routes, another for harem ending (which is really just one threesome scene but still better than no harem ending). I then took away one star because Nana and Ichika don’t have routes, and I really wish they did.

    One thing that bothered me is that two of the tabs under “extra” are marked ???? and can’t be unlocked. I assume these were supposed to be artwork for Nana and Ichika, who don’t have routes in this version of the game. Perhaps they’ll have routes in a future release, but for now… the game feels incomplete without their routes, so I can’t give this a full five stars, much as I like the characters.

    Is it worth buying? If you’re a huge fan of animal ear girls, and have already played through all of the Nekopara and Neko-nin games, then by all means get this one! If you haven’t played Nekopara yet, I recommend getting all four volumes first. If you’re indifferent to animal ear girls, you might not be particularly fond of this one… and if you have a huge crush on Nana and/or Ichika, it might simply disappoint you that they don’t have routes, so your best bet might be to hope Cabbage-soft releases a fandisc for them.

    I dropped this one.

    I’m seemingly pretty far into Chieri’s route. But i just had to stop even trying.

    I’m writing this as a simple warning to any seasoned anime fan, or just consumer of otaku media in general, who has any standards.

    If you’ve already by far had your fill of the “basic, dense/oblivious male protagonist” then you’re likely to find this story unbearable. I was in a good mood at first, and kinda just had fun making fun of the cliches, but a story can only stay repetitive so long before it turns into a chore to continue.

    In all seriousness, the protagonist’s whole description can be summed up like this:

    Quirks: Has poor sense of direction. Strengths: Is an effective student. Personality: Is dense about girls, and otherwise devoid of any personality or motivation.

    He is the kind of guy who catches a girl staring at him for ten seconds, sees her blush when she realizes she got caught staring, and asks her: You look a little red. Should I call the doctor?

    He’s the kind of guy who, when made fun off just responds with an awkward “Ahaha…” every time.

    And they run these kinds of interactions with no end in sight.

    Problem is though, once we’re past the painful phase of him slowly realizing what having a crush is, it doesn’t get better. The confession was as if he suddenly just flipped a switch and said the three words. It was really underwhelming. Once they got in a relationship they mostly just proceeded as before. She squeaks like a mouse when he looks her way, and then gives him an annoyed “Muuuu…” when he as much as talks to a different girl, even for work related reasons. Now repeat that exchange a dozen times.

    When they get in a sexual relationship, his dialogue, monologue, and overall language during the act is so unusually stiff it’s off putting.

    And I could go on, but I should wrap this up. In conclusion I’d give this one a 2.5 out of 5. On a technical level this VN is good. The art is nice, music is very pleasant. The overall vibe during the start of the story is enjoyable. Voice acting is fine. I’ll narrow my score down to a 2 though, rather than up to a 3, both because I’m baffled this game only has 5 star and 4 star reviews so far, and also because a slice of life story like this depends on it’s characters to make it enjoyable. (And the the other characters that I haven’t mentioned didn’t help).

    I guess a good way to put it is, the story doesn’t have enough to distract you from how painfully boring the protagonist is. This is just beyond uninspired writing for a newly released visual novel.

    Fairly short but sweet. Loved that the characters maintained personalities appropriate to their breeds. 2 routes and a very short harem route.
