Welcome to Edo, an alternate realm where history took a different route. The Samurai of Japan were never outlawed and the emperor lost power preventing Japan from opening its borders to the other nations of the world.
Edo is now a very different place from modern Japan, where tradition still holds sway other the people and it's leaders. As time has passed the Samurai have been given ever increasing levels of power by the Council of Nobles and their leader the Lord Regent.
This has given rise to the creation of a special core Samurai unit known as the Justicars, though members are appointed by the council, they remain an autonomous unit, able to investigate and judge any threat or criminal they find. It is their duty to safeguard the continuity and protect the people. But Edo is not a land of peace and plenty, strife exists in all corners of the once great empire. Rival factions constantly battle for land and power whilst rebellion grows from within.
Enter Asumi - A female samurai of the black clan, trained from birth to kill on command. Now newly appointed as a Justicar of Edo. Our protagonist finds herself in a place she never thought she would be, outside of the shadows, within an academy, trying to root out a rebel before civil war can engulf Edo and its people.

It's filled with rather more good things than bad - I LOVED soundtrack! The story is also fine, it's more focused on that than on making just as cute as possible girls. It have many endings, both good and bad, rather good drawings - few of backgrounds looked really nice. Deluxe edition comes with fun to toy character creator and comic - which is also cool. I liked it a little bit more than mostly games from AJTilley. It's worth checking if you are fan of this genre of games.
Sword of Asumi is a visual novel taking place in an alternate universe Japan. Character and background art is poor, fitting for low budget visual novels but after this one got high funding on Kickstarters this is much lower quality than should have been expected. Cliched characters and dialogue that fits with bad fan fiction and not at all with the setting of the game. The game is short so all relationships are rushed with everyone liking you immediately. Some choices lead to dialogue and option changes but most have no effect on future scenes or thoughts, you can find yourself in strange conversations with characters who act like they know you very well when based on your decisions you might not even have met them. Dull music that seems to randomly stop at strange times, other what seems like an accident or it seems like they just lacked a track fitting for the mood. It felt like they wanted to make a dress up game more than anything else, for how short the game is you are constantly changing clothes for almost everything that you do, and then I noticed they did make a dress up game as DLC. All the endings of the games play out in the same way and lead to the same choices, two quick playthroughs can allow you to see every ending that the game offers. The main plot of the game to uncover which of the characters is planning to lead a rebellion feels like a complete afterthought and adds nothing to the game. With the actual plot and characters being uninteresting for those who care about story, there being no sex scenes for people interested in that, and the writing not being bad or awkward enough for people that play VN just to laugh at them the game doesn't have anything to offer any of its players.
