After Idol Magical Girl Chiru Chiru Michiru Part 1 we were left on a cliffhanger. What’s going to happen to the brave Michiru and Kazuki? Well, it’s time to find out!
Idol Magical Girl Chiru Chiru Michiru Part 2 is the second half of the story, spanning the last 6 episodes. Well I say 6, but one of the chapters is so incredibly short – think about 1 minute long – that it’s more like 5 episodes. Despite this, it’s still just around as long as Part 1, and is what I felt to be the better part of the story.
Part 2 will still make you laugh, much like how Part 1 did, with a lot of immature jokes and just generally funny sections. However, this time around, they also head into a realm of seriousness. This is, of course, to be expected for wrapping up the story. I did at least feel like it wrapped up the story quite well and didn’t really leave many unanswered questions. Well, I did have some unanswered questions, but I also imagine they would be answered in the main Grisaia series.
Between the two parts, pretty much everything stayed the same UI-wise. I will note that if when you launch it your font looks a bit weird and you’ve got a bunch of vertical lines (|’s) in the names, restart the game. That happened to me at first and I thought they had just messed up something.
Something that didn’t return that was there for the first five episodes was the recap sections. While they vanished at the end of part 1, they weren’t present at all during part 2. I had found those hilarious and really wished that they were there.
If you’re looking at picking this up, make sure you get part 1 first and complete it. I can’t imagine trying to go into part 2 blind as you would be absolutely confused. Of course, I do still feel like they are a tad overpriced for the length (part 2 will still take around 4-5 hours), so it’s best to try and find them on sale. Despite that, I do still suggest the pair, so long as you complete part 1 before going into part 2.
