Can she figure it all out and save herself?

This is your classic otome series, a series meant for a girl audience, where usually one female has the opportunity to go out with several male characters. What is notable about this series are the boys are bishounen/idol/pretty boys (they look like they belong in a boy band) in which provides the heroine with a numbers of choices, different possibilities and outcomes. This one shows that this cycle is alive and well.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital sound are as good as they are going to be for this format, but Blu-ray fans should get that version format of the set instead as it looks like there is more to see and hear on this one. Extras include Lost Diary Entries and trailers.
