If you’re into anime and visual novels that have a bit more going on under the surface than you’d first assume The Fox Awaits Me may be your jam. Waking up with amnesia in a bamboo forest the start is a bit disorienting and since you only have interactions with other characters to go by piecing together the picture of everything is a challenge, especially since you’ll find that nobody is really very trustworthy. The dialogue can generally be light and even teasingly playful at times but for the most part that seems to be the sweet exterior of what can get to be a pretty grim set of circumstances if you’re not vigilant and most outcomes will actually leave you stone dead. In general if you’re an anime fan I’d say this is a come for the art and stay for the surprises experience, though for everyone else there’s probably not much here that will tempt you.
