Walkthrough: You don’t need one 8D
Finally! Finally!! FINALLY!!! o/ asdkfjslkghalk
After the long wait, it’s finally hereeeee! Both the fandisc and my post! /o/ The fandisc of DRAMAtical Murder which was released last year. The FD picks up what happened after the bad and good ends in the original game.
OMGOMGOMG you have no idea how much I squealed when I started the game lolol. The preface this time have this 8-bit feel, very much like the game that Aoba played before. There are lots of added extras here such as the card game, the birthday presents from Aoba, etc. Make sure you check those out!
As you can see, there are lots of portals. Each colored portal corresponds to a specific guy. The white one (the one near Mizuki) and the light blue one (above Aoba) only appears when you finish the endings of the 5 guys including the one with Virus and Trip. As you finish even a single end from one guy, you’ll get those characters. For a pleasant surprise, hover your cursor above any character and you’ll see something like this. :3
If you are wondering what are those chest boxes for, it contains a lot of extras in the game like countdown voices, (special) gallery, Aoba’s presents, mini-game, liner notes etc. Once you enter a portal, the inside part looks like this:
The white umbrella represents the good end from the original game and the black one is for a bad end. Most guys have 2 sub-ports, I think, other than Virus and Trip.
I usually list the walkthrough sites for each game. But for re:connect, you don’t actually need one because you’ll have to eventually pick both choices to get the CG.
It is basically a different position for scenes 8D. So don’t forget to save when an option appears!
N+C brings back Ai Catch! <3 Not as an opening song this time but as a bgm. The new opening entitled, Cosmocall, is also good. The new lineup of ending song for each characters are still very catchy and lovely. All of them are my faves (though you could have guessed that I’m slightly biased with Crystalline nyahaha) And oh my gods, they even brought back Immer Sie. AAAHHHH
/breathes in breathes out
Beautiful art as always. Oh and not just beautiful this time but also maji 2000% sexy especially Aoba. I wouldn’t expand on that but you’ll see every side and angle of him /snickers. Though there is this one CG in Noiz’ route in why I go “Who are YOU?! ∑(゜Д゜;)” when it appeared because well, they look like somebody else.
And since most CGs are R-18, it’s hard to choose a proper image for this post.
I can’t even post my fave CGs sobs. wwww
<Isn’t it nice to see the point of view of the guys other than Aoba? I’m glad that it happened in most of the bad end.
Pain and pleasure are two very different things but you can attain them at the same time. Beast!Koujaku and other!Aoba showed that. I’m glad that other!Aoba showed here. Other than being hot, he is a good-guy-gone-wrong. I feel that we need to know more about him.
The two of them is freed from their pasts as Koujaku moved on and Aoba decided to cut his hair short in which I find hotter. Koujaku is already good-looking with his usual hair/bangs covering half of his face. But him with his hair brushed up + that serious look = yabai. (///u///)
Aoba is extremely cute here especially the part where he said he’ll go take a bath and told Koujaku not to peek. But then added, “…I don’t mind if you do”. AHAHAHA OMG Aoba. These two have become bakakuppuru that they are giving off pink hearts and flowers around them. XDD
About the past, I…actually forgot about it lol. I thought after fighting off Ryuuhou (oh crap the way Koujaku growl Ryuuhou’s name is echoing in my ears), everyone is happy and moved on. But nooo. There is still the tattoo that is a reminder of the past. And I’m happy that they have addressed that (or else I forgot it completely ><;;). It was a well-thought explanation and is a nice closure for them to look forward to their futures.
Since he can’t feel pain, he just goes into fights right then and there. He doesn’t worry about pain. In return, he doesn’t understand it if his companion is in pain too. He doesn’t even know he is being hated because of it. Even his parents hated him for it. They are the type who puts front and is prideful. They wouldn’t even let him near his younger brother. He is imprisoned in his room located in the big house where he would cry alone. He stopped relying on other people and believed only to himself. Accidentally, he discovered that his tongue can feel pain thus he pierced it. Then he learned about rhyme and tried it for the sake of knowing pain.
I wanted to see this brother he is talking about and question him why didn’t he stand up for his big brother. Kidding www. Though I’m just curious to see how he looks like.
Gaaaahd. This has the most painful sex I’ve ever seen. The one Clear had in the original game is painful in an emotional level that it is heart-breaking. This one is just painful that I feel like letting a scream along with Aoba’s. But then again, the pain and pleasure theme comes in again, especially since for Noiz, they are one and the same feeling.
While Aoba is awkward with Koujaku, he is flustered with Noiz. Maybe because he can’t predict what will happen next. With Noiz’ actions, Aoba thought he’s a new breed of person pfft. I only have 2 complains in this route. One, we didn’t get to see them in Germany. Two, I don’t quite like the 2nd good end option. Although it redeemed itself after but still… I’ve seen other ukes being tied up and I’m not as affected as I am with Aoba. When I see him weak, I just can’t take it. It is painful. I had to replay the first option to remove that image.
Some of Noiz’ piercing have been removed…other than the one in his ahem. lol He has the nerves to ask Aoba if he’ll remove it or not and he is asking Aoba since the latter seems to love it. ( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ｱﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼
It’s like I’m stepping in a different, deeper realm when I play Mink and Clear.
I liked how they put other!Aoba more on Mink’s part. It feels like Mink’s strong spiritual, emotional, and mental resolved is at par to this stubborn side of Aoba. Their ideals clashes which reveals us more about other!Aoba. He is like a rebellious kid doing wrong deeds to be noticed. And the only way to save him is to die for his soul to be free or at least that is what Mink thought.
Of all the characters in DMMD, Mink needs this continuation badly. I know that there are probably more haters than fans of Mink out there. With this route, I hope you get to change your perception about him. He is not bad as we have perceived him. That is his intention. But deep down, he is a good and caring guy. This route just proves how mature he is. Sure, his ways are not easily understandable and he appears cold and insensitive to others but he doesn’t do it because he felt like it or is a plain jerk. But Mink is not an easy guy to deal with. He is too strong-willed. That’s where Aoba comes in. Aoba breaks all of Mink’s resistance with his unwavering persistence to catch up to him. Then we finally hear about Mink’s side.
Although honestly, there is this part where I thought that the chasing will never end. That it will just be a cycle. Of course, I feel bad for Aoba as always.
Then Mink said this:
crap. That ending is the sweetest thing. And Aoba in the native attire is wonderful. ♡♥(。´▽`。)♥♡
That was some closure for Mink. It was a job well done. :Db
Aoba just want to fulfill Clear’s wish. So he choose to just give in to whatever Clear wants. As Aoba nears a doll-like state, Clear nears humanization. They never meet halfway. They never compromise, or rather there is nothing to compromise with…which is heartbreaking. (I’m not sure if you will get this as I think I was vague in this sentence. Sorry u.u)
— Eeeeeee. Aobaaaaaaa <333333
“Fear of death is not because it will be the end of everything. It is what you will leave behind.”
Funny that I have to learn that from a robot. Clear ponders on things that most of us, humans, take things for granted. For him, those things are important.
Clear because he resembles jellyfishes. A transparent lifestyle. Just like Clear’s heart. He is as pure as his looks. Even his point of view in this world is so transparent. He is really like…an angel from up above. wwww
Everything is explained here. Why he loves those shiny objects, the jellyfish, the umbrella etc. And I love how N+C make those seemingly random things important to the characters. Not just in Clear’s route, but everywhere in the game.
ASDAFKLAJ the ending song is Crystalline. It’s like Clear. Transparent, fragile, and precious. CRIES
–These are my thoughts while playing the route and I’ll leave it as it is. Unless you want to see me gross sobbing over this route and write more incoherent words. lol
Trip and Virus
I don’t include an image for them as I hate them with a passion. :))
Your omocha/ningyo route
So what did I say before about this two especially Trip during the original game? I sorta like him?! That’s MADNESS. These two are, idk, hopeless? No, wait, they are not human (Clear bby is more human than them
“This is not what I wish” – Aoba /cradles Aoba while sobbing
Every day they do something to Aoba, different horrible things. For instance, when Aoba disobeyed, Virus locked him up in a closed cage for 3 f*cking days. The hell dude.
While I understand that Aoba is frigging sexy that you want to lavish all of him, leave your freaking all-mate’s out during sex! GDI
Probably the lack of a good end for this two so it’s long. And N+C have to discuss some past and whatnots about these two. I am trying to think of what could be a representation of Trip and Virus but I am so pissed with these two that I stopped thinking about it.
He was once another part of Aoba: Aoba, him and other Aoba. When there was a problem with the stabilization, he thought he needed to tell it to Aoba but he can’t talk to him anymore. Thus the all-mate. Then he realized that he loves Aoba. At first, it’s like loving yourself. Thought he IS Aoba, he has a different will. The more he tries to stop his feelings, the more the feeling gets stronger. But that feeling is a sin.
–Gahd I love this monologue. This is the bittersweet side of story of Ren. You’ll see how much he truly and deeply cares for Aoba.
Ren has the hottest scene like Aoba is giving everything. While the other ones are hot, with the exception of Clear which I find serene and beautiful… wait wrong route to talk about that ahaha. Okay, as I was saying, the other ones are erotic but when it comes to Ren, it is as if Aoba has become an aggressive uke for their scenes. Maybe because Aoba doesn’t have any reservations when it comes to Ren and that he throws all of his hesitations aside. He only needs to feel and confirm that Ren is by his side now anyway.
I liked how they addressed about doing it while Ren has Sei’s body. It still looks like doing it with your brother (a twin no less). Although somehow, I keep on wishing that human!Ren will have the same form as online!Ren. Well, other than online!Ren being a hottie that he is, human!Ren seriously needs a haircut (and some more muscles). I understand that he is still adjusting in his new body. Perhaps give him some years and he’ll reach his online form.
What doesn’t change is the fact that Ren is still our adorable puppy no matter what.
After Ren’s route, two more portals will open.
It is a pleasant surprise to see Mizuki again and clear all of their misunderstandings and moved on. Mizuki is a really good guy and it would be a waste to have an FD and not give him a bit of spotlight.
While I was playing this, I try to shove the thoughts of sudden accidental kisses in this one since that would be sooo sudden. I guess that is the effect of watching to much scenes that you begin to think another one will pop out lol. Mizuki and Aoba have this sweet bromance around them. If Aoba will have an older brother (no Sei is not counted ;D), Mizuki definitely fits the bill.
…that isn’t the actual title but I already forgot what it is so forgive meeee
I was both happy and sad by the time I finished playing Ren because that is really the end of DMMD. But no, N+C is kind enough to give us Aoba’s past.
ASDFLKASJDFKJHFLKSAJDF young Aoba is SOOO ADORABLE. I want to squish him! No wonder everyone is taken in by him. His father, Nain or Nine or whatever (I’ll stick to Nine because it looks better lol), is hot. Not the sexy hot like Aoba but he exudes manly pheromones around him ww. And Haruka is a nice lady. She complements Nine’s eccentric personality. It isn’t hard to imagine why Aoba broke down after his parents left. I mean, they’ve always been his anchor ever since they took him in. They have such a nice and heart-warming family even if none of them are blood-related.
Also, this route strengthens the message that they have been reiterating since the original game: you can destroy your old world and create a new one. That life has boundless possibilities. It will only be the end if you have given up.
Why do you have to make me fall in love over and over AND OVER again in this series N+C?
Re:connect has everything that you wanted: freebies aka added side-features, gallery, etc, answer to every question, and hot scenes. Everything is just awesome. And Clear is wonderful asldfjasl. lol
