Genre: Interactive Story

Springtime, April: when the cherry trees come into full bloom. The protagonist Yukinari Sanada has returned to his hometown in Kanagawa Prefecture, Kamakura City, for the first time in seven years, and is greeted by his older cousin Sakura Narumi (complete with maid outfit). He wanted to live in peace, but his life at the academy placed on the coastlands becomes bustling and brilliant while surrounded by a lineup of girls with booming personalities like Hotaru Amano, the sharp tongued, half-Japanese beauty, and Alice Kamishiro, the lazy witch who loves modern-science and mail-orders. Eventually, our protagonist is coaxed into joining the action committee for the academy's traditional beauty contest by his close friend. He interacts with the heroines participating in this contest who are cute but each have an idiocyncrasy or two. Fun events (with their own difficulties) pop up again and again. Your story with "her" about smiles, peace, passion, and love, all while borrowing the power of a witch, is about to begin! "Supipara - Alice the Magical Conductor." is an interactive novel themed around "dynamicism" depicted through a rallying all of the production techniques minori has accumulated to date. See expressive character portraits with moving eyes, mouths, even hair! It is quite immersive in many aspects. Also, "Supipara" won't conclude in a single game. It will be released as several standalone episodes. Fans may freely pursue only the episodes that interest them if so desired. You could say "it's a light novel series, and independent stories which develop their own unique personalities all in one."

Supipara - Chapter 1 Spring Has Come! Critic Reviews

Both audio and visuals are outstanding, showing that a lot of care went into creating this visual novel. This makes it safe to assume that, whatever Minori has planned for future chapters, it will be worth all the incredible effort put into this initial release.

Supipara is a charming visual novel, through an through. Its high budget ultimately may not save it from falling prey to threading the tried and true old formula. Its cast members may end up falling into stereotypical roles and the plot has a few too many uneventful periods. Still it is enjoyable and paves way for the upcoming chapters, promising to have the plot finally running on all cylinders.

Overall, I would definitely say this is a very solid game for minori. Although it may be lacking in the emotional impact compared to the company’s other installments, this is the first chapter of the Supipara series, after all. Despite it being somewhat short, this kinetic novel is worth every penny due to the richness in storytelling and visuals. As the first chapter ended with a very enjoyable cliffhanger, I look forward to the next release to experience more of Yukinari’s eventful life.
