Critic Reviews for Shin-chan: Me and the Professor on Summer Vacation - The Endless Seven-Day Journey
Shin chan: My summer with the teacher fulfills its goal of making us feel like children through Shinnosuke's carefree eyes, with the sense of humor of the series, something that fans will love. But its very slow pace and very limited gameplay (it seems like a graphic adventure that almost does not evolve) will not be to everyone's taste.

Apart from mashing together two classic Japanese IPs, Shin chan: The Endless Seven-Day Journey mashes together some quite contradictory concepts and comes up with something special. You have the directionless, simple adventures of a child's curiosity on a rural holiday, but they're interrupted quite suddenly by a tightly directed (and completely absurd) plot. Wacky sitcom energy quickly becomes the drive and purpose in a game that could have been merely a wholesome meander-em-up. So there is the soothing magic of endless days running round fields and just seeing what catches the imagination, but also a heavy steer to play a story from end to end, packaging the never-ending summer into a punchy and dynamic 15-20 hours. Knowing now what Kureshin and Bokunatsu are, if you think you like the idea of mixing the two, this game is very easy to recommend.
The most defining aspect of his game is the signature Boku no Natsuyasumi atmosphere. The Shin-chan elements take a back seat to support the lazy summer vacation ambiance, so don’t expect any elephant dances or jokes about Misae’s butt. If anything, the Shin-chan connection holds this back from being all it can be, so it ends up pleasing nobody.
