i felt the complete opposite here, with Root Double Nakazawa tried to focus a lot more on the characteres and their backstory, whereas in R11 they had more a secondary role.
I/O was the VN that really tried to capture R11 in its complexity, with its even more insane and mindfucked space time tale. Yeah at points its confusing and all, but it's one of the most fascinanting VNs out there.
It really shows that with a more constrained Nakazawa, we will get something like Root Double, and when you let him go berserk something like I/O :D
If he can get the balance right for his next VN then i'm sure something special is awaiting us!
