Ameba Otome Game Review: Boyfriend (Kari)
So because the games I ordered in January got lost in the mail, I spent most of February forcing Alice down my throat and tapping my android phone with a money jerking card game. Fortunately because idgaf about collecting every pokemon, I didn’t spend a penny but none the less it was a good time killer so I figured I’d share the wealth.The game that’s taken Japan by storm since Japan loves collecting things & gambling their lives away. A rival to Girlfriend(kari), they’ve created Boyfriend(kari) for the ladies.
You know all those dumb card collection games on mobage? Idolmaster? Eva? All that crap this is the SAME THING. There is no difference. You play some daily lottery, get a card and if it’s a rare card, you get a popular seiyuu’s voice with it. Each “card” has a mini story that comes with it and if you merge it with cards you don’t want (like dat annoying gaijin character who I want to punch everytime he shows up) you can “evolve” it to see more chapters.
Obviously the more money you blow on this crap, the rarer cards you will get! Kyah Toriumi for the 23423523th time is sick and I have to take care of him! :roll:
Being that there’s a shit ton of dudes in this game, you are most likely to find your favorite seiyuu that’s been in like every otome game. Hell, the guy who I made my 本命 is a total nooblet McNoob who I’ve never even heard of! No worries though, you can still enjoy playing this stupid game without paying a penny:
- You get to spin for a rare card once a day so you will always get a chance to hear a voiced scenario.
- You get to spin for non-rare cards daily but you can just throw those into the rare cards to “evolve” them instead
- There’s a ton of events and other crap going on and you receive gifts/rare gacha spins for just pressing some buttons anyway
- Play this while you’re waiting for the eggs to finish cooking, while a dull war scene plays in some 和風 game, while you take a dump on the toilet, or while you’re trying to look busy at work (←totally not me.)
Be warned though because it DOES have voices, if you’re in a place that you don’t want anyone hearing, plug in your headphones or make sure you press the “off” button when it asks if you want voices on or off.
Anyway the majority of this app is just PRESS BUTTON -> receive 2D man card.
So because I’m in an otome game slump (due to shitty games + games getting lost + upcoming FFXIV patches that are distracting me) this is just the perfect thing to waste time on. It doesn’t really require any attachment or involvement and since I don’t have a gambling addiction I can easily start & stop whenever I feel like it. If you have a gambling problem or are anal about collecting every tiny little thing, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY STAY AWAY FROM THIS. (If you do register or already have an account feel free to add me as a friend.)
But yea, lol otome games, lol me for using Airmail for the last time to order anything.
P.S. In case you haven’t heard:
Wow they're shutting down Smakare!! Well guess I'm never gonna get to play the other games. Bummer.—
