For those that do not know, Code:Realize is one of my favorite visual novels and easily the best otome game I have played to this day. There has been only around 4 otome games that I have been hyped for and, admittedly, the art is one of my main reasons. It wasn’t different for this game. While the plot seemed interesting enough, I have adored the art for it ever since a friend linked me to it. Then Code:Realize has been finally licensed and I have gotten it as a Christmas gift in 2015 (bless the UK eBay seller who sold imported copies). However, there is only so much you achieve with gorgeous art, if the game is bad not even the art will save it.
Code:Realize ended up being so much more than I could’ve ever hoped for and my love for the art and the game left me wishing I had any merchandise of the game at all. For a year I have been wishing to own this artbook when I finally found it in a reasonable price and decided to just go for it. All I have to say is: no regrets.
