    Didn't find a thread. Picked this up a few days ago and currently enjoying it. Kotarou is a glorious bastard, so far my favorite Key MC. Think I am headed for a Lucia route, just investigated her gloves.

    I finished Lucia's route this morning, I enjoyed it, just wish the route would longer then common route. Also it was written by Ryukishi07(the guy who Umeniko), so the fans should this route.

    Starting Kotori's route next.

    Summary

    Spoiler:


    So after the common route, you find out the Lucia isn't a clean freak because she thinks the world is disgusting, its because she thinks her hands are disgusting due to childhood trauma. She is afraid that what ever she touches will die. This causes a fight between Chihaya and Lucia which you end up resolving.

    While checking for leads for the Occult Club, you learn about the curse of Asai Haruka, that she drains the life out of people and curses anyone who investigates. You find out Yoshino is also afraid of his curse and was there when it started originating 7 years ago. With his help you get a class roster that Kotarou so he can search for leads. Yoshino warns you to watch out for broken glass, as its a warning. Lucia decides to get involved because Kotarou is interested in dispelling the myth of the curse, as its similar to her own past and she wants to get over her past trauma's.

    At the end of this mystery you find out that Lucia was actually Asai Haruka and she has been coverup for it the entire time. Lucia explains she emits poison into the air and takes heavy suppressants, but it can not stop from poisoning what ever she touches. Kotarou uses his mysterious power to completely change his body so that it can accept her poison and so she won't be alone in the world.

    You then find out Luca works for a mysterious group called Guardian as they take Kotarou to a medical facility to have him examined to why he is immune to Lucia's poison. Lucia explains later they are fighting a terrorist group called Gaia, which both groups are looking for a girl they call the "KEY", which has the power to destroy the world or revitalize it(at the cost for humanity).

    Lucia explains that approximately in 1000 years the earth will no longer be able to support life, and Gaia is looking to revitalize the earth so that won't happen. Then Lucia explains that she was created to be a future human, a human capable of surviving after the earth had died and they planned to have her frozen and awaken in 1000 year. The plan was scrapped due to its absurdity and the cost of all children lives they killed.

    After this Lucia and Kotarou go on their first date, something Lucia has dreamed about. During the date, their close friend Shizuru has collapsed. Shizuru is a walking drug factory and is very capable of fighting against Lucia's poison, but Lucia's suppressants are losing there effect and Shizuru has been taking in more poison then she is capable of fighting.

    They put Lucia in isolation to try and figure out how to make a stronger and more effective suppressant. Lucia believes that she has no purpose and has been robbed of her only purpose(living the dead future). The old manager(Brenda) for the future human project returns and kidnaps the depressed Lucia and continues with the project. After a few weeks Lucia and Kotarou meet again and have a date in at restaurant, saying that they have made new suppressant.

    How ever Brenda actually made her poison worse and unleashed her into the city so her poison would kill everyone including the KEY, so Gaia won't get their hands on it. Kotarou awaken after being knocked due to the immense amount of poison that escaped Lucia. Chihaya found you while you were unconscious and Guardian comes to pick you up, and you are informed they plan on nuking the city to keep the poison from spreading. Kotarou and Shizuru only have a hour to convince Lucia to come back before they nuke the city.

    Kotarou finds Lucia in a shopping mall and fails to convince her that she has any purpose other then dieing. Shizuru and Lucia begin to fight, with Shizuru wanting to injure Lucia and drag her out. During the battle Lucia injures Shizuru, but both end up falling to what would be their deaths, but Kotarou and Chihaya catch them. Though making hand contact Chihaya starts to contract the poison and faints. Lucia thinking that she just killed a friend and runs to the roof.

    Kotarou confronts Lucia on the roof and after realizing she won't listen to him, Kotarou decides to knock some sense into her. Lucia attacks but her sword is stopped by Kotarou's arm, she is unable to cut it and it eventually breaks. Kotarous tells her it doesn't matter if she wants to live or die, he isn't going to give her the choice because he wants her alive. This causes Lucia to regain composure and they manage to escape to a bunker.

    A year has passed since the incident and Kotarou has become a member of Guardian, he escorts Lucia to different bunkers around the world to protect her till they find a suppressant.



    edit:

    Holy shit I just finished Kotori's route, I definitely recommend going her route first. Lucia's route beats Kotori's in story telling and world building, but Kotori's route shines around the end, holy shit that was great. A much stronger finish then Lucia's ending.
