I was excited to play Tatebayashi’s route when I started the game. Just look at him looking like the knight-in-shining-armor. Character design-wise, he is more of my go-to favorite character.
However, after Shigure, I’ve gotten attached to the Gohongatana group. I loved the chemistry Shigure and Kyou have as partners in everything. I was afraid that Tatebayashi’s side of the story might not be as interesting as Shigure’s. But it proved that that is not the case. It was interesting but not because of Tatebayashi.
