In the middle of the night on a certain day of April 201X, the right arm of the owner of a general store is chopped off in the backyard of his own store.
Even though he claims that the perpetrator is a 'doll' that was kept in the store, his words carry little weight due to the lack of other witnesses.
The doll and the detached arm are gone from the scene of crime.
“Like a light too strong may burn out one's retinas, so too can supernatural entities be toxic to humans.
Even should they take on the invisible form of one's emotions.”
This is a mystery story about bizarre incidents unfolding around the town, intermingled with a complicated mixture of human intentions.

Visual novels lately seem to come in two different forms, either you pay $30-$50 for a good years old title that was just added to a digital store that will take you dozens of hours to get through, or you pay about $15-$20 for an poorly drawn, poorly written, hour long, cliched romance story that was just made to make a quick buck or to draw softcore scenes. Magical Eyes Red is for Anguish gives us something a little different, a reasonably priced, nicely drawn, well acted (in Japanese), 5+ hour mystery game with some decent writing. The story follows a group called the Disobeyers, people with different special powers, as they attempt to solve a mystery that begins after shopkeepers arm is chopped off by a doll. The story is told from the perspectives of one of the members of the Disobeyers and a friend of his. Throughout the story, you will have reasoning scenes where you have to choose the best answers from your memory of the story's events, doing well will give you additional scenes but won't effect the game's ending. This story does tie up the main plot but a sequel seems to be in the works that might continue the story of the group and other plot threads. For the low price this visual novel is of much higher quality than most that have been getting added to Steam and is worth a look if you like the genre.
