The user mostly reads the dialogues and lots of text. The text is accompanied by commentaries of the main characters on the background. The text in the game is accompanied by character sprites, which represent who Buntarō is talking to, over background art. The plot of the game is branching with numerous characters involved in the storyline. That’s why there are several variants of ending of the game. Each one depends on the decisions made by the player.
