Omooo, usually I don't real KN's but I'm glad I've made an exception! You're got me in tears as well by the time I've reached the ending (Q___Q)
Like many others, I hope there's a sequel or at least a bonus chapter that shows life when Autumn buys the EternaLovers? I would love seeing her and Elly continue their time together as best friends, and Autumn with Jude as lovers...!
Other than that, great job with TCAST! I totally love it <3
Yes, a sequel. Goodness, I want a sequel!!! The ending was heart- breaking and romantic. When I saw the scene where Autumn thought of buying 2 EternalLovers well.. I did a little happy dancing. Just can't get enough of Jude. ;)

But of course if you're too busy, it's understandable. The visual novel can end like this but I consider it a little prologue for the future Autumn will have. I also liked your explanation in the Bonus section. :)

Wow I don't know what to say....
but if you actually read this, just know it is such a devastatingly cute story...that I fell in love with it :D
I would love a sequel just like anyone else but if you don't have the time, I still think it is fine the way it is :3

<3 <3 <3 THANK YOU!!!! <3 <3 <3
(it's now my inspiration)
I really hope there's a sequel, I just needed so much more. With such a good plot, where I never once became bored. I just wish that it had been longer. It didn't make me cry but it definitely touched me. The whole robot/love/SY-FY feel, was so unique compared to the typical boyfriend drama most vn's contain. That Cheap and Sacred Thing was probably one of the best visual novels I have ever played through. Guaranteed worth a play, I'd be surprised if it disappointed. Now all that's left for me to do is sit here and wait more the sequel. ;n;

This was BEAUTIFUL. FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE READING THIS COMMENT, PLAY IT NOW. It got me teary-eyed. It's been a while since I read a really good visual novel, and this is one of my favorites. I like the fact that this was a kinetic novel, because most of the time there are choices right? Oh, and the ending. It was really great...about...
Okay, I can't say things. People will be spoiled.
But still, the story, the characters, the lines and the art? Epic. THIS NEEDS to have a sequel. Well, I'd love it if it would, I just hope many people will say that.
Btw, I love that movie! AI I mean...hehe. Just came back to say these stuff.
