Grisaia: Introduction - Frontwing’s Grisaia series, which kicked off in 2011 with the Japanese release of first installment The Fruit of Grisaia, has come to be regarded as a particular high point for the visual novel medium. Indeed, back in 2015, the /r/visualnovels subreddit voted The Fruit of Grisaia as number one on its list of top 10 visual novels (later … Continue reading Grisaia: Introduction
Grisaia: Makina – The Girl in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time - We see a lot of different aspects to heroine Irisu Makina over the course of Grisaia’s complete story to date. Initially, she’s presented as a shy, young-looking girl — a self-professed “loli” — who has difficulty trusting new people, so she finds it difficult to interact with protagonist Yuuji, who is himself not the easiest person … Continue reading Grisaia: Makina – The Girl in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time
Grisaia: Michiru – The Girl in the Box - Matsushima Michiru is one of Grisaia’s most unusual, interesting characters, initially appearing to be present primarily for comic relief, but subsequently showing herself to be a complex, fascinating character with a considerable amount of depth. We’re first introduced to Michiru in the common route of The Fruit of Grisaia, when protagonist Yuuji comes across her … Continue reading Grisaia: Michiru – The Girl in the Box
Grisaia: Yumiko – The Girl Who Learned to Be Loved - When we’re first introduced to Sakaki Yumiko in the common route of The Fruit of Grisaia, it’s clear that she is both troubled and likely to be trouble for protagonist Yuuji. When Yuuji first attempts to introduce himself to her, she initially tries her best to ignore him, and subsequently goes to slap him when he persists. … Continue reading Grisaia: Yumiko – The Girl Who Learned to Be Loved
Grisaia: Sachi and the Maid’s Burden - When we first meet Komine Sachi in The Fruit of Grisaia, she’s introduced almost as a caricature: she plays the role of “the perfect maid” to everyone else at Mihama Academy, right down to wearing a maid outfit when she’s not in school uniform. But it doesn’t take a great deal of perceptiveness to notice her behaviour isn’t … Continue reading Grisaia: Sachi and the Maid’s Burden
Grisaia: Amane – The Girl Who Learned to Say Thank You - The Fruit of Grisaia doesn’t really have a “true” route or “true” ending as such, since the important plot threads are scattered across all the different girls’ stories. But if there’s one path that stands out as being of particular importance to the overall backstory of the series, it’s that of Suou Amane. Not only does … Continue reading Grisaia: Amane – The Girl Who Learned to Say Thank You
Grisaia: Yuuji – The Boy Who Was Broken - The Grisaia series may explore its five main heroines in considerable depth over its duration and various routes, but ultimately, the central character to the overall narrative is protagonist Kazami Yuuji. Yuuji is one of the most distinctive, memorable and unusual visual novel protagonists in the entire medium. Through The Fruit of Grisaia’s exploration of him over … Continue reading Grisaia: Yuuji – The Boy Who Was Broken
