I’d like to put up my two-cents on the Jury romance.
Personally, out of all of the romances I feel like his punished you the most. Like, the game punished you the most for getting with him. Like, in Heroes Fall (and I don’t know if I need to spoil these since the game is older now) when you first kiss him you actually lose legend. While it is still possible to get a perfect legend and get with him there is a chance that you could lose out on that only because you romanced him. I think he’s the only one that happens with too.
Then there’s the fact that Jenny will get mad at you for it. I don’t know if she gets mad at you for getting with Prodigal tho. (And, yes, Black Magic and Lucky will get mad if you get with the other but that makes sense and you don’t really get punished in any other way that I can think of).
These issues wouldn’t be too big of a deal though. If it ended up being for nothing since you guys break up and there’s literally nothing you can do about it. Like, the Prodigal romance doesn’t have a happy ending either but, really, there wasn’t a way for that to end well. Even if she wasn’t sick she would’ve had to go to jail. Yet, everyone else you end up all happy and together if you romance them. I know it’s petty but I’m just… mad about this. It really soured the game (and Lira’s character, the man-stealing b*tch) for me. I’m not exaggerating when I say that I could be in a good mood, remember that this happened and get mad about it still.
Jury is my favorite character out of the ROs (I love Jenny, Prodigal, and Black Magic but Jenny and Prodigal I like more as friend characters and Black Magic is a fun RO but I just like Jury better because I have bad taste, and I just find Lucky kinda boring) but he is probably the worst of them. You don’t get to really get to do anything romance-wise until the third game which wouldn’t be so bad if I could enjoy it. Even being as nice to Jury as the game lets you doesn’t really give you a lot. (I think you can make him smile once in the second game?)
I actually thought about it and at the end of the third game (which I figure would be about June-July-August since its 6 months after the start which must take place in Jan-Feb since Victon’s reign as President has just begun) which means the MC and Jury break up not too long after that (it’s November when Miss Boss dies/falls into a coma since they mention taking a break for Thanksgiving). So when you’re reading the epilogue where everything seems fine and you even have Jury in the same room as your family and Jenny and you two are all happy it ends, what, in 2-3 months? And then he’s just with someone else.
Also it doesn’t help that this is revealed to you in a pretty harsh way. The first time I read it I legit thought he was cheating on my MC.
I’m sorry to make this a huge rant but I’ve just been salty about this for the last few months.
