Root Letter is the first in a brand new 'Kadokawa Game Mystery' series - a collection of Visual Novels with exceptionally high production values. Set in Shimane prefecture - a place rich in history, culture and natural beauty - vLetter revolves around the mystery of Fumino Aya, your old high school pen friend who went missing 15 years ago. On receiving her final letter 15 years late, in which she confesses to a murder, it's up to you, the player, to unravel the mystery of what happened to her. Reminiscing through previous letters from Fumino Aya, you must piece together the truth, alongside the testimonies from seven witnesses who knew her. Did she really murder someone, was she telling the truth in her letters - was she even real? Travel from location to location in Shimane prefecture and interrogate people from her past - only by examining her letters can you unravel the mystery. Boasting beautiful character artwork from Mina Taro and some of Japan's best-loved voice actresses, Root Letter represents one of the most exciting additions to the Visual Novel genre in years.

Pros: The soundtrack is great.
Fatty was probably my favorite character.
I have to admit, I laughed when a character said, "I've found you, B**ch."
The voice acting was great.
The true ending left me pretty satisfied.
Cons: I found the whole nickname thing ridiculous. It made it harder for me to take the characters seriously.
Almost all of the classmates were unlikable and irritated me.
Some of the endings made no sense. Besides the true ending, there was only one other ending that didn't have me shaking my head.
In most of my playthroughs, the main character was rude, pushy, and insensitive, which made it harder to actually like or relate to him.
Overall, this was an okay game. Not the worst I've played, but not my favorite, either. If you're really put off by characters that are annoying and generally unlikable, you probably won't enjoy this or want to play multiple times in order to get to the true ending. I really liked the premise of the game, but I think it could have been executed better. I also think the characters annoyed me so much because of their immaturity. Seriously, you've been out of high school for over a decade and you're really being this childish? I found it hard to believe that people in their early 30s had gotten as far as they did with their poor personalities.
