Sunrider Academy is the slice of life spin-off that follows the sci-fi tactics OELVN Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius. Academy breaks into another classic style of gameplay with its stat management dating simulation focus, making for a wholly different experience from its parent visual novel. While well presented, I found that Sunrider Academy simply didn’t have enough content to be enjoyable and the repetitiveness of its gameplay didn’t give it much to fall back on. Genre-shifts can be incredibly entertaining, but I have to recommend giving this one a miss.
Kayto Shields, Captain of the space-faring vessel Sunrider in a previous life, is now a high school student. As a member of the student council he is tasked with managing the Academy’s problem clubs…and while doing so he might just find himself drawing closer to their leaders.
That’s pretty much it.
