This 5th title of the Sakura series from Winged Cloud feature a male protagonist Seiji who has been invited to spend time at a beachside resort with his two childhood friends Ayumi and Momoko. Over the course of this visual novel, Seiji will be confronted with multiple comedic encounters with Ayumi and Momoko before being confronted head-on that one or both of them may actually have feelings for him.
The story and plot is written like a romantic comedy with a share of humour and fanservice. Although this game has more than 300 positive reviews at the time of this review and the soundtracks, artwork and overall presentation are good, I have mixed opinions on this visual novel. Having played through the first 3 titles of the Sakura series Sakura Spirit, Sakura Angels and Sakura Fantasy, this visual novel failed to reach the somewhat higher expectations I have for titles in the Sakura series after Sakura Fantasy in terms of plot, soundtracks and artwork. Furthermore, by not having St3@m achievements in this game compared to the later titles of the Sakura series would also further reduce the appeal of this game.
