Description

Sentou Gakuen is the very first anime-styled Online Visual Novel that combined with MMORPG elements.

Sentou Gakuen primarily takes place in a fictional school called Sentou High School, which is located somewhere in Tokyo. Physical locales of Tokyo such as Shibuya Scramble Crossing, and Wako Shop at Ginza can be spotted in the game. When the story begins, the player will take their role as a new freshman student at Sentou High School where they will meet new friends and meet several of their childhood friends as their journey start.

In Sentou Gakuen, players  are free to choose their own path. They can just study and study, doing bad things at school, protect the weak, or exploit their weakness. Spend your money to help their friends, or horde it. Form a club and become the most respected group of students in the school. Declare war on an enemy, or an innocent bystander, the choice is on the player’s hands.

The concept of this game is a combination of both visual novel and mmorpg in one. Just like usual mmorpg, player will have each stats. To increase stats they have to take some lessons and attending class (For example if you want to increase your strength you have to take PE Physical Education class). Another stats are such as Energy, its required if you want to do training. Willpower, this is the efficiency of your actions. Will would be bigger if you bought a more luxurious dorm room. Action Points, you need this to perform actions. Experience, progress of the levelling. Health, if a finite value used to determine how much damage (usually in terms of physical injury) the player can withstand..

There are "Story Mode", where the story of the game will be told, and characters in game will be introduced in Visual Novel-way. The tutorial part also will be explained in this mode. The story mode, are optional, this will similar to 'Quests'. Players are free whether to do it or not. After the player finished the story, the game didn't ended, but they can continue the game, thus this game is open ended.
