Scandal in the Spotlight – Nagito Aoshima (Main, Epilogue, Sequel, Sequel Epilogue)

Intro: Finally!! Nagito!!! The past few Voltage guys I’ve played have been…difficult, to say the least. I was so looking forward to sweet, easy-going Nagito! And he did not disappoint. His story took a turn that I was not expecting, but I loved spending time with him. Spoilers ahead for Nagito’s route.

My Thoughts: Normally I jot down some notes while I’m playing, so I can write a blog later, but I didn’t take that many with Nagito! I was too busy relaxing and enjoying the story, instead of scribbling notes about how the guy was pissing me off or doing rude things lol.

Nagi won me over immediately when he covers for MC when she messes up on her first day as assistant manager. He didn’t have to, but he’s such a sweetheart to help out.

He already thinks himself inferior to the other guys in Revance, so he figures he can take the blame for one more screw-up. After Kyo and Taka reject MC’s lyrics, she gets pretty depressed about living up to the great lyricist Ryo. Nagi really saves her though. He cheers her up, and makes her realize that she needs to be herself; that’s why they chose her anyways – not to be a clone of Ryo.

The story took a surprising turn in the middle, when MC (accidentally) announces to Nagi and everyone else that she loves him! It was great that they could be a couple in the middle of the story, and not at the end! Nagito seems to have feelings for MC too, and they go on a trial date to see how they feel.

But of course, it can’t be that easy. Nagi seems to have trouble getting over his first love, whom he could never confess to. Sadly, after MC realizes who it is, she spends a good chunk of the story assuming Nagi will always love her, even though it was pretty obvious to me that he had in fact moved on, and loved MC now. I was REALLY happy that there was not more drama with Nagito and his past love. They could have drawn it out more, but they didn’t. It was enough to give drama, without making it super depressing. Maybe some people will think it was resolved too easily, but it was apparent to me that Nagi started falling for MC early on, and that helped him move forward. I really just wanted a light-hearted, happy story, and that’s what I got, so I was grateful.

Overall: I don’t want to say too much else without giving away all of Nagito’s past. I will say that they always referred to him as the most pervy one in the group…and that was hard to believe! He always seemed like such a nice guy. But! Now I get it lol. He is quite a tease with poor innocent MC, but I liked that about him!

At the same time, he can be a real gentleman, and treats MC really well. Just like a princess, as he says. I can’t wait for more Nagito!
