This is an intriguing vn, potraying how the revolution moves as the cause and effect of MC's decission upon recalling her own guilty past. Ironically, she is not an independent human after all the rebellion as the choices are based from her patronized by Sister if not Mother from Censor, leading to abrupt ending (in my opinion).

However, the backstory from Rootpro/the application with withered tree embracing winter season shows well the damaged is community of Outsider, also the art style reflects the sealed society inside Censor and how grey is this dystopian world.
