It’s an adult take on the fable of Cinderella: the Polish studio which made it, Moa Cube, also published another VN that I had not a chance to play yet, called Solstice, also supposedly good.
And unlike the majority of VNs available which are either Japanese or more or less adherent to strict anime-derived tenets and art-style. While personally I don’t have a problem with anime character design, most Japanese or Japanese-inspired VNs dwell on a level that I don’t find interesting in the slightest.
So when someone says “hey this VN is good” it’s key to understand where they are coming from: that said, I tried a couple that were free, and a couple that weren’t, in the last year or so, and I couldn’t get myself to finish any of them; one was what I would call a crash course in eye-rolling, another was also very juvenile, though not nearly as bad; the third a little too stereotypical, and the last, albeit short and one of the most interesting of the lot, just seemed to move at too slow a pace.
I’m saying all of this because Don’t Take It Personally uses an anime art-style and some tropes, overall I don’t recall it being very representative of the genre.
