So I haven't done a Let's Play in a while and I like doing them. So I picked up a cheap and silly steam game and decided this might be fun to LP! It shouldn't be very long. I haven't played very far though so I might fail

Object of the game:
Recruit at least 3 people to the Cherry Tree High Comedy Club! You can recruit up to 6, but I'm not experienced enough with the game to go for that just yet.

Note:
There is the regular version and the westernization. The westernization is the same game, but the Japanese names are changed and so are a few references. For example, main character Mairu becomes Miley. I'm playing the regular version and not the westernized version.

Let's start with our intro!

We meet Mairu and her friend, who has to wipe ketchup off of our heroine's face.
64062

Mairu has something specific to talk about
64063
64064

It is indeed! But apparently things did not go so great. Mairu and her old friend/rival apparently got in to a fight. She says they played a lot of pranks on each other as kids.

So we are treated to a flashback where Mairu goes to see her old friend/rival, who is named Chitose. Mairu decides to call her Chi Chi, a name that doesn't fly

64065

After a bit of bickering, we get to the core of the issue

64066

Mairu tells legend of a comedy duet group from the high school back in the day. Our friend Mairu likes comedy, if that wasn't evident from her hair style

64067
64068

Chichi asks if her and Hoemi are indeed the two only members. "DUH" said Mairu. You only need two people for a duo! And while her math skills are up to snuff, nothing else is

64069

Without being an official club, we don't get funding or a super cool club meeting room

64070

For reference, it's March 22nd. Deadline is May 1st. This is already not promising

64071

Chichi wishes us a sarcastic good luck

Back at the restaurant, Mairu fusses about Chichi being underhanded. Hoemi disagrees

64072
64073
64074

I like Hoemi :flirt:

64075

No pressure or anything

So wait, do they like meet during the summer and stuff then? Because the school year is almost over and then she graduates :confused:

So now we have to try and recruit 3 of the possible 6 people who can join. It's like a friend dating sim. We do this by making conversation and stuff with them, hopefully about stuff they like.

64076

This shows our knowledge level, which will determine how many points we get during the conversations. We can up this skill by reading magazines, watching TV, or going to certain areas like the movie theater or art exhibit.

While exploring town, we meet shrine maiden Kusuko. Mairu comments on how it's no wonder she has thighs like Chun-Li when she has to climb so many steps to the shrine everyday. Kusuko heard every word, but asks us how the club is going and gives us some encouragement

64077

She's also big on the proverbs

64078

From now on, we can work here in the afternoons for some spending cash, which can be used to purchase things like magazines or food to reduce our tired level

Let's see if she has any more words of wisdom before we start our part time job

64079

Fair enough

64080

And we made 1000 of the monies!

The day is split in to 3 sections, morning, afternoon, and evening. Certain actions will pass time to push it towards the next one. So by cleaning, it is now evening. In the evenings we can do homework, save, rest up, read magazines we've purchased, watch TV, or make jewelry for a bit of extra spending money

So since it's evening, we head back home for dinner

64081
64082

Kaoruko is our dorm manager lady. She berates Mairu for not getting a stable job and calls her a moocher

Dinner is enjoyed by all

64083

Hoemi is Mairu's roomate, in case that wasn't clear

64084

So Hoemi decides we should try to recruit new students

64085

Bold faced lie

64086

Oh yes, I have 4 homeworks to do at some point. I'm guessing during spring break. And yes, that takes up time. I also have a fatigue level to keep track of.

Mairu tells Hoemi she doesn't know how to live unless she puts off homework at the last minute. Darn Hoemi, being all responsible :argh:

And with that, we're going to save and do homework. Next time we get to meet some of our targets for recruitment!

Oh man. I hope you're better at this game than I was. I found like one person xD I was just hella bad at it for some reason. I need to play it again. I'm excited to see how your play through goes.

Oh I am fully expecting to be terrible at it!

So remember I said we were going to do homework? This is what that looks like!

http://i.imgur.com/lXYFjWQ.png

That's my homework face too

So let's do our second day!

http://i.imgur.com/OiwsEM3.png

Awesome! So we go downstairs to greet her and help her move her boxes

http://i.imgur.com/Z4embC8.png

I like how green hair isn't a defining characteristic.

http://i.imgur.com/GTkA9pl.png

Hoemi corrects that she's actually her roomate

http://i.imgur.com/iq1zS8S.png

Mairu extends the olive branch by telling her that she can ask them anything

http://i.imgur.com/LxeRkPD.png
http://i.imgur.com/7MqWjls.png

Hoemi clarifies that it's just a dorm and not crime central

So after moving her in, she thanks us and asks how she can ever repay the favour

http://i.imgur.com/Eh1UnjS.png

Hoemi once again steps in. But there's more trouble brewing!

http://i.imgur.com/fTKYE5h.png
http://i.imgur.com/v2IU6Wc.png

Poor girl. First Mairu and now this :(

But Mairu actually makes herself useful this time and helps out the situation, saying rules are meant to be bent

http://i.imgur.com/LdGPHvP.png

VICTORY

http://i.imgur.com/v29uBBH.png

And with that we go about our day. One random girl asks about fellow student Haru

http://i.imgur.com/qI6MfL8.png
http://i.imgur.com/bIXUKWi.png

Very supportive she is

I also go to the school to brush up on some skills

http://i.imgur.com/mq1kDoB.png

I won't be posting every time I do something, I just thought the icons were cute to show :omgomg:

Let's see if Kusuko has some more knowledge nuggets for us

http://i.imgur.com/Uy9cB3O.png

....alright

So evening comes and we head back to the dorm

http://i.imgur.com/Z2YCr4h.png
http://i.imgur.com/3kNDFaS.png

She'd already forgotten about the welcome party she decided on this morning

So after the text box tells me the party and merriment is over

http://i.imgur.com/0yRy5tk.png

Mairu asks why she transferred over

http://i.imgur.com/W1o7S9U.png

Mairu then decides it is time to swoop in for the kill and ask her about joining the club

http://i.imgur.com/aNGUljL.png

LIAR

http://i.imgur.com/hDTpK85.png

This disappoints our new friend Yoriko

http://i.imgur.com/sBxp2GL.png

I'm glad we get to play as such a lovely young woman

http://i.imgur.com/51NPwfr.png
http://i.imgur.com/wMXVuRZ.png

The "I'm-not-pressuring-you-at-all" face

http://i.imgur.com/qyOHjUx.png

And she is now one of our targets for recruitment!

http://i.imgur.com/JmqWICl.png

Oh ho ho I love her sweater sleeves :lol:

Anything else exciting before bed?

Oh dear


And that's all for today! Tomorrow we start 3/24

I was really hoping this was going to involve actual Rock Band-esque stand-up comedy.

Sorry to disappoint :shobon:

I will only be satisfied if you end this LP with a video of you and sharky performing a couples stand-up routine.

Pumpkin

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm I'll get back to you on that one

I've got two more days

3/24, according to the way they write the date

Let's see what Kaoruko is up to, shall we?

http://i.imgur.com/v9HazdU.png
http://i.imgur.com/BS0M8Rz.png

Darn that Hoemi, being so nice and likeable :argh:

A little ways away, we run in to a girl who is an old friend of Mairu's. Mairu comments on how she's gotten taller

http://i.imgur.com/J6AxFnL.png

Oh she looks so precious :omgomg:

http://i.imgur.com/AGcvEYq.png

Awkward silence

http://i.imgur.com/lkIucki.png

Mairu claims she just wanted Amane to answer

http://i.imgur.com/bpwbs4a.png
http://i.imgur.com/HOGXJvS.png

So she's not the brightest, poor dear

http://i.imgur.com/fMaELXS.png

She did indeed

http://i.imgur.com/Q8jWVYp.png
http://i.imgur.com/OJZa5cc.png

All right :smug:

http://i.imgur.com/8aCOXtj.png

Don't ruin this for me Mairu :nonono:

But she does, claiming she doesn't want to push Amane in to a club when she didn't even know what the club was and asks her to sleep on it

boooooooo

http://i.imgur.com/ZsHPpaR.png

Adorable. Oh yes, she's staying with her grandpa and works part time because her parents are having some financial issues

http://i.imgur.com/Y2pqzFZ.png

That works

What's Yoriko up to?

http://i.imgur.com/Ay5CnfM.png

Mairu comments on how pretty she must be under those glasses, because we still live in the world of She's All That

I don't even remember if I have the right teen movie, but the message stands

So not much else happens for the day other than me doing some boring things, so

3/25

We get to see our old friend Chichi, who mentions that there are camera crews everywhere

http://i.imgur.com/oi780Cj.png
http://i.imgur.com/l9tuw38.png

Poor Mairu

Anyways, wandering around town, we trigger this fun scene

http://i.imgur.com/s8vaqtv.png
http://i.imgur.com/f7TUYgV.png

He's a famous comedian. Turns out he grew up in this town and comes to visit and stay here once in a while

http://i.imgur.com/7D8O7pn.png

Star struck Mairu is intrigued

http://i.imgur.com/hvugLVk.png
http://i.imgur.com/aipTdA2.png

And now, because I am smart (and know how to use Google), I learn that I should research this at the school library

http://i.imgur.com/aZ1abaO.png

You have to be in uniform at school even if there is no school

So we decide to check the student roster for this young man

http://i.imgur.com/23MnSNF.png
http://i.imgur.com/PPbxCVx.png

Well she is blonde

http://i.imgur.com/4SYXveW.png

After mentioning that she is, in fact, interested in this young man, she runs out. Chichi makes a mental note to keep an eye on her

http://i.imgur.com/GVINGxU.png

I am extremely turned off right now

http://i.imgur.com/qWJjGYR.png
http://i.imgur.com/cxq8wny.png

Nothing like starting rumors about yourself

http://i.imgur.com/svrAZx3.png

(his father)

He kind of dodges it and makes it seem like he just knows him from TV and asks why she's asking. She mentions that she just saw him on TV and she's a big fan

http://i.imgur.com/ukv3dxo.png

He says that there are a lot of younger, fresher comedians, and she says it's not always about that but about how he laid the ground work for a lot of the comedy we have today

It was a surprisingly intellectual 2 minute conversation

http://i.imgur.com/MUT1Jb3.png
http://i.imgur.com/aay7rQG.png

Mairu thinks he knows a bit too much about comedy to mean that, and so he becomes another target for us to recruit (yeah like I'm going to try real hard on that one)

http://i.imgur.com/K5wn5PZ.png

And that is all for now!
