Nope, doesn't look like it has any otome-game/dating-sim elements. I went through some Japanese reviews to see what they were saying, and most of em noted how they liked the characters, dialogue, and story, but nobody mentioned branching paths or multiple endings, so I don't think there are any. Regardless, the game looks real cute, so I will buy it when it's out.
The linear part is mildly annoying, but I've gotten used to it from almost every other RPG in existence. So long as it is a fresh take on my favorite genre, I'll be happy. --- Romancing SaGa Quests Completed / playing: Jamil, Aisha, Albert, Claudia.............../ Barbara
