Synopsis

Technicalities

Love’s Sweet Garnish is your standard visual novel developed by Canvas+Garden, a doujin circle based in Japan, and published by Sekai Project. The VN is short and a route can be finished in 5-7 hours. All characters except the main character are voiced. There are minor spelling errors but it shouldn’t affect your VN experience at all. There are only two routes for this VN: Richer route and Rira route. Chisato, Ciel, and Koron (a very cute girl) does not have their routes but who knows if they’ll be given routes for an upcoming sequel.

18+ content of the game is sold as DLC and it unlocks four hentai 😉 scenes: two for Rira and two for Richer. Note that you must clear a route before you can unlock a scene and have at least played the first scene in order the unlock the second scene of a character. 18+ contents somehow contributes to the story development but is definitely optional. 18+ contents can be viewed from the Extra/Scene menu which is accessible after clearing the game once.

Love’s Sweet Garnish features a gallery mode of background music and CG scenes used in the game. This is only unlocked after clearing a route for the first time.

Plot

Love’s Sweet Garnish is a romance/slice-of-life story of a young boy, Ohgisawa Asaki, who moved back in town in order to manage his grandmother’s patisserie business. He met two adorable girls, Rira and Richer, who applied to work with him as waitresses. Ohgisawa, being the main character-and-all, he has to face trials with his romance: will his love to either girls succeed or fail miserably?

Conclusion

Love’s Sweet Garnish is a well-written visual novel. Despite being short, routes are developed in such a way it would catch the audience’s feelings towards the heroines. I would say that this VN is best for those who want to explore VNs as the lack of choices and with choices being obvious makes it easier to choose which route you want to take. For those who like romance, sweets, and slice-of-life genres, this VN is definitely worth your time.
