Game is a fucking drag without a skip function ~~

You just don't want to read all the same stuff on you third+ playthroughs.

You can bash it all you want, but "no voice"? Shouldn't you be better informed before going all "HULK SMASH!" on something?

I only finished the Alice route, and meh, it was just baaaad. It might have been nice with proper drawings and voice acting, but the way they presented it was just sad ~~

After that one ending, and having to face all the repetitiv text yet again, I just can't get myself to try the other endings.

Ya, that was unwarranted but it isn't voiced (nor would be better voiced) ... I don't expect it to be voiced since it's made in California but somehow I expected... well... something... I've only played Naoko's route so far... it's mildly entertainment but... I'm not sure if it captures the Japanese renai game experience as they claim... other than the fact they're using Japanese names and creative ideas... but how do I put this... perhaps it's not twisted enough...

I think they wanted to add an easy mode in 1.13.

It might make the game more playable actually, god damn stat grind gets way too repetitiv.
