I’m back! I didn’t actually expect to write this so soon but having just finished Aruma’s route I have a lot of written(verbal?) diarrhea to release about BAD APPLE WARS.
Image heavy/sarcasm heavy post ahead
The game is basically about ‘life’ after death. The heroine Rinka is an ’empty’ girl who basically just lives each day doing nothing special, with no interests and no aspirations. On the day of her high school entrance ceremony, she drops her shoe and…ends up getting run over. She even died in a really stupid way.
The next thing she knows, she’s in this weird world where the sky is red and there’s a freaky teacher with a rabbit head on welcoming her to Nevaeh High School. Thinking he’s one of those weirdos commonplace nowadays, she asks him to bring her back to the school she was actually heading to. Rabbit sensei tells her he can’t because she’s already dead.
Thinking it’s a horrible dream, Rabbit sensei drags her to the entrance ceremony where there’s another student, Satoru, who’s already waiting. The ceremony begins and, as you’d have it, the invisible principal explains that they’re both there because they died meaningless deaths while achieving nothing in their lives. The goal of the school was to “to compassionately reincarnate a loser” lmao.
Suddenly a giant explosion happens and a group of delinquents calling themselves Bad Apples appear. The Disciplinary Committee appears almost immediately and both groups fight.
This red headed kid who is presumably the leader, asks both of them if they want to live before retreating.
All the principal says after that is that these new entrants should not become bad apples. Rabbit sensei turns out to be their new teacher and he hands Rinka a student hand book with a whole bunch of pointless rules and she notices the other students look really lifeless and are wearing the same freaky mask and finds it incredibly disturbing.
In the hallway she gets stopped by Bucket sensei (a teacher with a bucket on his head lmao) and harrassed by Gas mask sensei (…yeah). Here she chooses to be ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
I did Aruma’s route first because it’s fairly obviously the Tacchi char is meant for last so…Aruma is the leader of Bad Apples and voiced by Sakurai Takahiro. Continue reading
