"Feed me, or Ill reap your soul!" And with those ridiculous words, my whole life was turned upside down. Sakuraba Rie, aged nine, is a cynical and grumpy girl who cares little for her fellow classmates, and does not have a single friend. That is, until a self-proclaimed demon from the deepest, darkest pits of Hell suddenly appears in Ries kitchen and steals a tray of cookies. What will happen between these two young girls? Will friendship blossom between them, or perhaps something more? That is up to the reader to decide - but rest assured, no matter what, there will lots and lots of delicious food!
Strawberry Vinegar is a lot, but above all, this VN makes your mouth water all the time. The story revolves around two girls: a Tsundere, who because of her closed nature has never had a single friend in her life; and a demoness, who represents the sin...
of gluttony and wants to be cooked up nonstop. The mixture of the closed Tsundere and the open, affectionate Demonin provide for several funny moments. In between, pretty CGs remind you how hungry you are right now (often you even have the choice of agony). Depending on the actions you choose in the game (you are relatively often faced with the choice of how you want to act in a situation), you can unlock bad, sad and good ends. After a bad end, I skipped the others, because the good-hearted demoness (indeed!) reacts very sadly to emotional reactions, which made me feel really bad. After unlocking all the ends, I had to read through the best I played through first in order not to feel so bad anymore. After the story, or the stories themselves, you can have a look at the character concepts in the main menu under 'Extras' and browse through the 'Author's Notes'. Here ebi-hime writes about her inspirations for this UN and its characters. Here, too, you can enjoy yourself and may be surprised with a brilliant reference to a character from one of the best-known UN series. Although there is no voice acting, the quality of the UN is so good that I can recommend it without restriction; in fact, I feel a little bad that I have supported less than it deserves by buying ebi-hime at a much-reduced price
