Mitsuki moves from the country to Tokyo to attend a rigorous cram school, with the hopes of passing his university entrance exams next spring. He soon finds, however, that his other classmates treat him like a social outcast, being the oldest at his school by far. It proves impossible to make friends, and Mitsuki consigns himself to an isolated, lonely existence... That is, until he meets the single mother, Himuro Kyouko, who just-so-happens to live in the same apartment complex as him. Mitsuki offers to help Kyouko babysit her daughter, Tama. Kyouko, in turn, helps Mitsuki study for his upcoming exams. Over the course of a year, the two bond — first, as friends, and then as something more. Features: * Around 80,000 word kinetic story (approx 5-6 hours of reading) * Detailed background and character art * A custom OST * Daily messages from Kyouko, the story’s heroine * A cute single mother!

The Language of Love Critic Reviews

Limited characters is an issue, but not the only one. The Language of Love has no choices, and thus no replay value. It's passive, except to hit a button or tap the touch screen to advance the story; this might work were the plot aces, but that's not the case. So, this one fares poorly compared to other VNs on the Switch.

All in all, it’s a story of two people coming together, getting to know each other, and then supporting and accepting one another unconditionally. Now, I don’t know about you, but that’s all I’ve ever wished for out of a loving relationship. If you are a reader, you’re going to want to pick this one up. It’s not that expensive, and if it’s ever on sale then consider yourself getting a very good deal.

The Language of Love lives up to Teilhard de Chardin's famous phrase. With a light and believable narrative that addresses diverse themes present in our daily lives and characters with whom it is possible to identify to a greater or lesser degree, the visual novel is a great option for those who just want an uncompromising and touching reading about the difficulties to create relationships, romantic or not, in adulthood - and, above all, about how they impact people's lives.
