Ah, Kakeru, the cutie with a nice smile…  I was so excited to play this route because Kakeru is voiced by my ultimate seiyuu bias Kaji Yuuki!! Anyways, Kaji Yuuki’s deep voice aside, and despite the initial reviews I read about bully Kakeru, I really enjoyed this route!

I tried to make this post spoiler-free, but I don’t know other people’s definition of “spoiler” so still, read at your own risk! ・´∀`・)


The boy with that nice smile! (Come one Kakeru, smile more for me (๑´ლ`๑)). Kakeru usually acts as the leader of the team because he’s smart and he’s quick in thinking of things to do in different situations. I really admire Kakeru’s wits, especially when he’s trying to get his way with that sweet yet cunning smile on his face (≖ω≖。)♪. But unfortunately, Kakeru sometimes always usually uses this skill to bully other people! Ah, my poor Senri… always the target of Kakeru’s bullying…

I’ve read other reviews and they didn’t like Kakeru because he’s rude and mean, and yeah, I can’t deny that’s true. But I didn’t dislike him at all! I actually like that personality of his! He always gets his way with that (Kakeru you manipulative cutie!). And I think he’s the perfect match for airheaded Koharu ahahaha XD.


I wasn’t really expecting much from Kakeru because the initial reviews I read kind of disliked him but surprisingly, I enjoyed this route more than Itsuki’s! The interactions between Koharu and Kakeru are like “fufufufufu (๑´ლ`๑) all these otome feels♥” XD. Well Koharu is still as dense as ever in this route but I don’t hate her for that. If not for this dense personality I would have found Kakeru’s route boring.

Unfortunately though, as much as I really enjoyed chapters 2-6, I thought the last chapter… ended pretty bland? Maybe it’s because my daiji na hito Kakeru went with his daddy Tabibito-san Yuiga Shirou and he wasn’t much in chapter 7 and I was expecting more raburabu scenes  but oh well. Overall I enjoyed the otome feels in Kakeru’s route ^_^=

Oh yeah, most reviews I read said that the way Kakeru fell in love with Koharu happened pretty fast. But I don’t think so? I think Kakeru just likes airheaded, clueless, cute girls like Koharu so he liked her immediately. And Kakeru’s blushing face is so cute ♥ (Kakeru’s blushing face shouldn’t be part of the argument but whatever. I just wanted to say that he’s cute XD)

And let me just include it here. Among the 6 routes I have played so far, Kakeru’s route had the best CGs. Every CG is so pretty I can stare and admire them all day (well except for that bad CG //ugh), and well placed in the story. (I had the feeling that they intended that because Kakeru is like, the main cover guy of the game XD)

Character voice: Kaji Yuuki

Eff yeah Kaji Yuuki using his deep voice! \m/ And Kaji Yuuki is my ultimate seiyuu bias so I don’t want to write a review because it will end up being so biased XD I swear I could have finished Kakeru’s route faster than I planned because I really enjoyed his route I didn’t want to put down my PSP even for a second //because fuuuu cliffhangers at the end of every chapter let me go to the next chapter now// but I just have to, I JUST HAVE TO replay Kakeru’s every line because gadmmmt that deep voice //I like  \(//∇//)\

Heart meter: ♥♥♥♥.5

(Next route will be Ron’s. I have zero motivation to play it though. I dislike that guy -_-;)

  1. When I heard that some people didn’t like Kekeru, I had no idea why… Kakeru is awesome! Since he’s the first character that most play first if you follow Otomate’s guide, I’d say he’s a great opening to the whole story. And Kaji Yuuki ftw! (*´∀`*)

    • When I picked up Norn9 I was like “Oh yeaaaah more Kaji Yuuki!” XD But then the recommendations say that I should hold his route for a while and I did and played his route on 6th. The routes before I played his were the longest routes I ever played in an otome game HAHA XD. Well on Heishi and Sakuya’s route anyways. I remember tweeting “huhuhu want to go to Kakeru’s route NOW” while I was playing Heishi’s route o(≧∇≦o)
      And yeah I really can’t get why they hate him. I also liked him in the other routes! (yes even Senris XD)
      Hmmm now I wonder how my playthrough would have been if I played him first. Ah, but I guess I won’t really play Kakeru’s route anyways, because Shimono Hiro, my ultimate seiyuu bias, is voicing Senri XD. I’ll probably play Kakeru’s second since Kaji Yuuki is my second seiyuu bias.
