Hey!

Was just wondering if anyone else knows this visual novel.

I'm usually not into visual novels but this one was really great and really tugged at my heartstrings.

The rough story goes like this: Amber, a 19 year old girl, is mourning over the death of her recently deceased grandpa, whom raised her and was pretty much her best friend during her entire life. To take her mind off of things she decideds to travel across the country by herself.

During her drive she comes across another girl, Marina, whoms car broke down in the middle of the street. Amber decides to give Marina a ride and eventually she finds out that Marina is looking for a treasure that is supposed to be hidden across the country.

While treating it as a legend or a scam at first Amber eventually lets herself be convinced to help Marina in finding the first piece of the treasure and thus an adventure filled with action, comedy, drama and romance begins...

In terms of VN I think Highway Blossoms is a masterpiece. The story, the characters, the art and the music are just great. And furthermore it's yuri =x

I haven't hard about that one, it sounds interesting. The only visual novel I have played lately is Flowers, and I liked it a lot.

i brought 2 copies of the Limited Edition way back in February, only got them a couple of weeks ago. torn in whether i should wait until the rest of the series comes out or start playing and hope that it doesn't leave me hanging for the next time

The first game ends in a cliffhanger that people say won't be resolved until game 4, the final of the series, and I think it gets touched a bit in the others games. Game 2 and 3 are about other couples and are already out in Japanese, from what I have heard are pretty good too.

I liked the first Flowers game a lot, don't let the fact that it ends in a cliffhanger turn you away, although if you have so many other visual novels to play I don't know which one you should go for first.

i got Highway Blossoms and it's on my list to play, along with Sono Hanabira 5-9 (including replaying Sono Hanabira 1-4), the officially release Sono Hanabira, Hanahira, Demon Master Chris, Atom Grrrr, Lilium x Triangle, Kindred Spirits on the Roof....and a whole bunch more which is making my backlog grow even more!

there's been alot of shoujo ai/yuri come out this year, either official or fan translated. a shame that the only Nanoha Visual Novel i can find isn't shoujo ai/yuri
