Haiyaaaaaaa it’s now time for my Onii-chan’s route. I’m sort of excited and anxious at the same time. My capacity for reading yandere stories went down tremendously in the past few years, so fingers crossed I’ll make it through his route.
I first watched the Amnesia anime in 2013, and nine years later, my fav character is still Toma nii-chan. Toma is infamous even among people who haven’t seen Amnesia. I show pictures, and my friends would say ‘oh, the cage dude?’ I still like him despite that cage thing. Yeah. It’s almost painful.
I still remember that when the COVID-19 pandemic first started, the Amnesia team gave out a picture of Toma’s bedroom (with the cage) for people to use as their Zoom background. I used it in one of my classes, and no one got the reference. That’s probably for the best lol.
I misspelled ‘bad’ as ‘bed’. No, Amnesia does not have bed endings.
Anyway, I went back and changed some of my choices to see what happens. First, I changed my choice of suspect from *spoiler* Toma to Shin, and he replied with a ‘yeah figures.’ This change in attitude on the MC’s part affected the conversation with Toma at the park the following day. He said something along the line of ‘it makes my heart all tingly that I’m able to go back to being your older brother’.
This time, Shin did not have much time to ransack Toma’s house for evidence and had to hurry back.
MC chose to study with Shin, and he mentioned that she was his inspiration to study hard and get a scholarship.
The confrontation between Shin and Toma happened the same way, but instead of recalling that she mistook Toma for Shin and that Toma was the one who pushed her to the rock, her denial was so strong that MC refused to acknowledge the memory and buried it again. Toma told the other two to just think of it as an accident. Shin wasn’t too happy, though; he didn’t want to pretend nothing happened, but he didn’t want MC to think that he’s trying to ruin her relationship with Toma either.
Orion didn’t think that what happened to MC at the bottom of the cliff was an accident, but there’s nothing they could do now.
Three weeks passed, and Shin asked for a breakup. He knew that her memory loss and what happened with Toma was affecting her, and he wanted to break up so that they can start over again. He and Toma would be on equal grounds then, and whoever wins her heart over again this time can do it without any regrets. MC was like ‘oh? Come and get me, then.’ (Loool I love her when she said that)
That was the good end. TBH I also really like this ending, because it resolves Shin’s guilt about not realizing Toma’s feelings for the MC, and despite having doubted Shin before, MC is regaining her trust in him just like in the good ending.
Shin and Marie went to see Toma, but he took a car somewhere. Marie decided to go watch a movie with Shin, and they had a pretty nice time together afterwards.
The next day, Shin setup a meeting with Toma after work. Toma met Marie at work, and he remarked on how she chose Shin again even after she lost her memories. Marie brushed it off, and after work was done, they went to meet up with Shin.
Recap: Before the amnesia, somebody pushed MC (I’m calling her Marie) down a cliff, and Shin is the most sus. Therefore, the whole crew goes back to the mountains to gather evidence that Shin is innocent.
I have no idea why Shin always sounds like he is talking on 1.25x speed. I checked my settings and there’s nothing wrong. Huh.
Anyway, the group arrived at Shinano. Rika started bickering with Shin, and Toma came in to stop the fight. Rika tried to leave with Ikki, but he and Kent were like ‘why’d you assume Ikki would leave with you?’ Ukyo came along as well, as the final guest.
Shin and Marie had their strategic discussion after arriving at the lodge. Given the circumstances of what happened during the incident, Ukyo wasn’t suspicious although both barely know anything about him.
UPDATE: The game has been released. You can download it on Appstore or Playstore.
If miHoYo knows something, it’s how to write good characters.
Tears of Themis is an otome game where you play as a lawyer. Your job is basically to protect your clients using evidence you’ve gathered. Along the way, one (or more) of the four main guys will assist you with your job.
(I’ll use publicly available pictures since I’ve heard how serious miHoYo is with people posting beta test pictures, so I’ll avoid bringing trouble to myself just in case.)
Sawa and the manager invited everybody to a firework show. Sawa lighted a bunch of rocket fireworks and Toma felt like he had come to babysit kids instead of watching fireworks.
Shin and Marie lighted sparklers and sat in a quiet corner. Shin told Marie that his dad happened to punch a drunk guy in the wrong place and the guy died, but because of that everybody started avoiding both him and his dad.
It was so weird, for this entire scene, Shin’s voice felt like it was put on 1.25x speed. He talked really fast.
Shin is determined to make his future for himself. It didn’t matter if he had no money or everybody called his dad a murderer. He’ll study, get the scholarship, get those grades, and pave a path for himself.
Sawa and Toma came over for a visit and they had a chat about the accident. I like that don’t need to worry about eliciting suspicion, since it’s already shot through the roof since the second day and nobody can put us in a hospital now with Shin around. Toma smoothed Sawa to tell her about the accident.
This was what happened: Shin, Sawa, and Mine went to Shinano for vacation. Marie went off somewhere with Shin at night, and she… fell off a cliff? *Ikki route flashback intensifies* Wait, Sawa said ‘koutsuujiko’ = ‘traffic accident’, why is it a cliff?
Orion went on and on about being locked up in a hospital (like Kent’s bad end) but Marie woke up in the hospital first thing. She had injuries all over her body. Shin barged in and kissed her. Orion was like ‘sry i need a break’ and told her that even though he might be her boyfriend, she should resist if she doesn’t like it.
