After choosing to live with Junta, the MC is surprised to find that they have more in common than she thought they would. She slowly finds herself enjoying time with him, and maybe even falling in love?! However, the more time she spends with him, she more she senses that there’s a darker side of him behind his disarming smile. Though she wants to trust in him, one thing after another waters the seed of doubt in her heart, and slowly she discovers the groundwork of the trap he’s set for her!
Junta is the youngest of the Special Executives, but doesn’t let his age get in the way as the head of the New Businesses Group. Though there are rumors that he uses backhanded methods, he always leads the company into success with his ambitious projects. A perfect gentleman, he comes off at upbeat and outgoing at first glance, and does a good job as a mood maker and disarms people with his smile. He’s also extremely good at manipulation, and uses it to influence people into doing what he wants. While he’s quick to gain people’s trust, he’s reluctant to give it away, and always changes the subject when it gets too close to something he doesn’t want to talk about.
Junta and the MC get along really well in the beginning, though the MC is a bit hesitant to open up to him. Though he’s a pushy at times, he does a good job of helping her feel more comfortable around him, and it works; the MC opens up to Junta a lot earlier than in Asahi’s route. I had my suspicions as to why they seemed to have so many things in common, and unfortunately they proved to be right ; A ; The plot had a lot going on and felt well written until towards the end, where it felt a bit rushed and out of nowhere; my biggest complaint with this story is that none of the subplots felt fully resolved by the end.
The relationship development between Junta and the MC was well written for the most part, but I didn’t see a lot of it from Junta’s side. I’m hoping that Voltage releases a POV sub story for him since there are a small periods of separation in this route and I’m curious as to what he was thinking during them. I absolutely loved the MC in this route. Though she was a bit helpless at times, her big heart and willingness to trust peope is what gets Junta to open up and change his lifestyle. I wasn’t a big fan of Nana, mostly because she didn’t add a lot to the plot until the end, and it felt a bit forced.
Junta was one of the characters that I was looking forward to playing in MWA7R, and he certainly didn’t disappoint! He reminded me a lot of Chiaki from OTBS, and it definitely didn’t help in the feels factor ; w ; I recommend this route if you like seemingly easygoing characters with a complex past and personality. If you do end up getting this route and enjoy it, I also recommend the secret stories and the epilogue. Junta is definitely on my favorites list, and I can’t wait to see how he’ll change and grow as a character in his sequel. Happy playing!
