184) If Her Flag Breaks

Video games are made up of event triggers called flags. None more so than the traditional dating sim game. Backstory flags, love flags, date flags, and even death flags! In this episode of the Animecast, we revisit If Her Flag Breaks to include another host’s impressions of this series.

Disclaimer: We were provided a Premium Edition Blu-ray copy of If Her Flag Breaks by NIS America, as noted on the podcast recording.

The opening for this episode is the OP for If Her Flag Breaks called “Cupid Reviews” by Aoi Yūki. The closing for this episode is the ED for If Her Flag Breaks called “Kanojo ga Flag o Tateru Riyou” by YELL.

We hope you all enjoy!

I watched several months back and felt it might have been better as 24-26 episode series instead of 13. With the amount of characters and the very bizarre direction at the end of the series, it would have benefit from easing the viewer into the other characters and the final direction of the show. The initial concept is fine but they definitely took it and just gave it a combination of LSD, PCP, heroin, and cocaine.

That sounds terrifying, though if it was done properly, I guess I can't argue. Plus, like I said, it was a fun show outside of the drug trip.

I agree with Mys that it probably would have been a better show with 24 episodes :) The twist towards the end just kind of felt like it came out of nowhere and I was so confused :lol:

The worst part about this show was this though:
