The main character is a new editor that is working for the magazine Cinderella and for her first assignment she is sent to the opening of a high-class casino in Roppongi. Through the night, she becomes a modern Cinderella as she meets a variety of men and gets in some crazy situations throughout the night in order to snatch a VIP interview with a certain someone. She is a highly curious person with a stubborn side that doesn’t let up until she learns everything about the story or someone, as shown with the latter half of the story. It is also shown more through this route how much of a “foodie” the main character seems to be. She is a very caring person and tries her best to encourage Noel in standing up for himself. She might be a little confusing about her emotions, but she doesn’t want to change their friendship and she is also aware that they might not see each other anymore after his next race. However, as she changes, Noel seems to change through their time together as well.
Noel Aijima is the most quiet member of the group that the main character meets in Roppongi that night. He tends to keep to himself and doesn’t interact much with the others, though he seems to have a strong bond with all of them. He is kind and does his best to help the main character in anyway that he can, though he seems to be a little shy about it. As stated before, he doesn’t enjoy attention from the media nor the stories that they fabricate, so he finds the main character’s honesty refreshing in a way. Noel is a person that seems to do what he is told, as shown with his relationship with his father, but he slowly gains courage to change due to his relationship with the main character. He doesn’t seem to talk about his emotions openly a lot, so it takes him to open about how he feels, though he tends to through childish tantrums her and there in regards to the others when it comes to the main character.
The story starts with the main character gaining exclusive access to Noel Aijima up to his next race and though he might not like it, Noel is always there to answer any questions that the main character has. During their time together, the main character comes to see that Noel does a lot of things when because he is told so, though little by little she pushes him to think on his own and talk with his father. At the same time, she gets to show him a different side of the media, though there are moments were it annoys him at times. The main problem comes when the main character realizes that she has feelings for Noel, though she isn’t sure what will happen to them once the interview phase has been completed, but how will things change when Noel says that he has something to tell after he wins his upcoming race?
Ok! This was a very cute and easygoing route where the characters just grow with each other in subtle ways. There aren’t any big problems between the two of them, but they are all communicated well upon and are tied together rather nicely. Noel grows along with the story and is able to confess his feelings with some minimal drama. However, it might be a little hard to read Noel’s emotions at times. It might be boring for some, but it flows easily and it is cute to see them spend time together. There really isn’t a supporting character, but the group is there to tease them when the time calls for it. The theme seems to be centered around taking it slow and easy, as shown with their relationship!
This is a really nice route and certainly different from the norm of Voltage routes, so consider checking it out if you’re into that!
