It’s a visual novel with puzzle battles. It’s a frantic puzzle game with a strong narrative. It’s the best of two things I enjoy a lot, with wonderful art and music. It’s an excellent challenge for arcade puzzle fans...”

The “It combines elements of action role-playing games with match-3 puzzle gameplay, somewhat reminiscent of the RPG series Puzzle Quest. Its story has hints of Persona and Undertale, hitting on some similar themes of friendship, magic, and monsters.”

Anime News Network: “Each character you meet is completely unique...This extends to the monsters you fight, called Grievances, which all have awesomely twisted designs. The backgrounds you'll explore with a chibi-fied version of Jun and friends are even more elaborate, with bright colors and fine, hand-drawn details”
