So i finally got around to buying this, patched it thanks to mm <3 and so I have two questions.
1: which path should i do first?
2: Which is the best?

1. Do Arc's route first then Ciel, Akiha, Hisui and finally Kohaku. After completing a heroine's true ending, don't forget to do it all again but choose a different option near the end for the good ending (normal ending for Akiha).
2. It depends on your personal preference.

Can't do Kohaku before you do the others anyway (I think)
They're all good in their own ways... quite different, it's hard to compare them.

You also shouldn't forget that the routes you play first are completely up to you, though playing the routes in that order makes the whole story piece together better. If you're full hardcore about one of the girls, just enjoy their one first! Who cares what happens to the others!

Not entirely true I think, I don't remember if you need to do both Ciel and Arc's routes (the Near Side of Moon) first, but unless my memory fails majorly the Far Side of Moon which has Akiha, Hisui and lastly Kohaku (after clearing every other route) gets unlocked after that. Hence nanaya_shinya's recommendation is pretty solid.

It's possible to do Arcueid/Ciel > Hisui > Kohaku.

I don't remember how but after a second playthrough i did it. Just saying, in case you were interested in one path <_<

My Second Playthrough [fresh install] so far is

Ciel > Hisui > Kohaku > Akiha(current)

Kohaku's route cannot be 'travelled' until Hisui's is done and the Hisui/Akiha routes cant be accessed until Either ARc's or Ciels is done as far as I'm aware, but you can do them in any order appart from that

I just love how nobody considers Kohaku's route to be a spoiler, even though the game treats it like a big surprise when it unlocks.

my first completion was

Ciel > Arc > Akiha > Hisui > Kohaku

The readme has all the information you'll need to choose which route(s) you want to play first.

Mine too. Or course I'd attempted to follow the recommended order of Arc first, but messed up somewhere along the way. I don't regret it though.

I dunno, but personally I found Kohaku's to be boring compared to Hisui's, and Arc's to be boring after Ciel's.

Hmm.... personal Favourite?

I like Ciel, although Arc and Kohaku are close behind

although at the same time I hate Kohaku the most XD

funny thing was when I first played this, I heard Arc's voice when I was reading her lines and It was basically Ryoko from the English Tenchi Muyo series
