Otome Game Review: Dynamic Chord feat. KYOHSO

SHINO IS AN ANGEL!!!!

And thus we have arrived at the final game of the Dynamic Chord series feat. KYOHSO.

Here, you play as Atano Rio, a girl who eventually becomes band manager for Reve Parfait – four highschool guys with a big dream. This is the story of how they began. I also want to say that Kuon’s route is something that should be read/experienced SOMEHOW, it’s such a good route.
