I started this game almost 2 years ago but due to delays/lack of interest in games the last few months, I decided to just finish it again. At the time I had only done 80% of Yukito’s route but once I got through it, the rest was mostly a skip-a-thon so I was able to get through the game faster than expected. And so here we are, a game based on a really trashy Shoujo Manga. When I say trashy I mean like Shinjo Mayu near porno levels :lol: I bought the 3 volumes on Amazon Kindle out of curiosity and was surprised Takuyo would even make a game based on something like this. Anyway more on that in my final thoughts. Our story is about Kanzaki Asuna, who moves back to her old hometown to stay with her cousin Yukito. Her dad is an engineer and tells her he’s off on a 2 year business trip with Yukito’s dad telling her to do well on her own! She figures things are ok since she’s got Yukito by her side but turns out that the school she’s going to transfer to was once an all boys school. They only started allowing girls in as of this year and since Asuna is a 2nd year student, she’s the only female sophomore in her grade. From here on Asuna’s bishie harem adventures begin!
So I didn’t intend to play this when it came out a year ago but I found it on sale while I was in Japan and was like well why not? Turns out it was actually a worthwhile purchase for me. I played this solely during my commute which is why it took me almost 2 months to complete but I enjoyed it none the less. The game begins with our heroine (who will forever be known as Mary Sue on this blog) once again having no memories as she’s transported through different “worlds”. Pretty much brief summaries ahead and not much of a spoiler so feel free to read on everything except Second World which actually has the true spoiler of the game.
Our heroine Kokoro gets taken to the Netherworld by some grandpa owl who tells her she will now be enrolling in a school to become a shinigami. Netherworld is a place that souls go to if they have regrets from their past lives and cannot transcend into the afterlife. Unfortunately Kokoro isn’t the brightest bulb on the tree and she ends up getting a 2 on her exam – successfully FAILING to get a shinigami partner. Because of this she’s placed into a “special” learning group for all the other failures. Unlike most shinigami there, Kokoro has no memories of her past life, how she died, and what regrets brought her to the Netherworld.
Wow this game took longer than I expected – but mostly because it collided with a new FF14 patch (but honestly what else is new with me?) The story is about our heroine Misaki who with her classmate Kokoro finds a stray kitten near the school grounds. While carrying the kitten home, she bumps into the manager of Prince Pia Carrot – a family restaurant full of ikeman waiters (on a trial period because all the other pia carrots are full of eroge ladies.) The kitten jumps on him breaking all the dishes he bought for the restaurant. Misaki feels bad and to take responsibility, she decides to work there part time along with Kokoro. Her school’s student council pres & vice pres are also on the waiter team and from here Misaki’s restaurant adventures begin.
Our heroine Ran is a village girl who has trained sword skills with her father every day. Due to this she never really had time for romance and because daddy would scare all the village boys away :lol:. One day however, her village is attacked by the neighboring village and father is assassinated. Some faceless dudes attack Ran and her mother & sister demanding that she hand over the demon sword that’s in this village. Ran heard a legend about it but has no idea what they are talking about. She tries to defend everyone but is outnumbered – until she just so happens to awaken the demon sword sleeping in a shrine nearby! She kills everyone around her and then passes out, waking up at a military school by the name of Nirvana. The queen of her country, Kiora, informs her that she’s to stay at Nirvana so they can keep an eye on the sword that is now directly connected to her soul. They promise to keep her mother and sister safe, but a lot of sexist pigs at the school are butthurt that this little girl gets to have this badass demon sword. Ran now has to prove that she is worthy of this sword and snag a hot guy on her way to a happy ending. Read the rest of this entry
Because I decided to make this a yearly thing for the hell of it. This is a random preview of stuff coming out, stuff I plan to get and just my random blabbering and opinion on upcoming releases. Please take it all with a grain of salt ;-)
It’s 1853 in the outskirts of England where our heroine Cardia lives forever alone in a dirty abandoned house because daddy told her so. By living alone she basically just sits in her room all day wishing for her life to end because nothing really matters anymore. The queen’s royal guards lead by Leon Hard (I swear I think it’s Leonhart lol) break into her house to try and capture her. The thing is, she’s not an easy pray because her dad has coined her a “monster” due to the fact that anything she touches melts like it’s being burned with acid. When one of the guard dogs tries to bite her, it melts his face off. Fortunately, master thief Arsene Lupin rescues her and then tells her that she has a stone on her chest called the Horologium which was implanted into her body by her father Isaac Beckford. Lupin is on the search for both Isaac and those who are behind the terrorist attacks in London. Since Cardia wants to find her father as well and figure out wtf he really wanted her to do, she comes along and so their steampunk adventure begins.
Kataoka Yue is assigned by her agency to start a new idol unit. It consists of individual idols who had no luck flying solo so now they’re combined into the group called Marginal#4. Despite their complaints the agency head tells them to do it or else! Now Yue must work her butt off to get whip these boys into top idols.
Wow this game was…something else but more on that in my final thoughts. ಠ_ಠ Our heroine Mochizuki Nao is blasted to the past of the Edo era at the bakumatsu period when they’re about to overthrow the shogun. She gets picked up by a historical bishie who brings her to Manjiya, a prostitute house where the geiko ladies can service men but without having to actually spread their legs. Guess it must be a high class one. ＼(^o^)／ Even though she starts working in the back, all the guys there suggest she start working “in the front” to service all the male customers instead. Without any second thoughts, Nao’s like SURE THANG and so begin her exciting adventures in semi-prostitution. Warning: Terrible writing and landmine tropes ahead! Read the rest of this entry
It’s year 2085, and our heroine Sendou Futaba has just transferred to Akizuki high school. On her first day though, she’s tricked into joining the superpower club. The club leader, Azuma, desperate to bring the club back to life, is given an ultimatum by the principal: win this year’s national championship or the club will be shut down forever! The club has been suspended due to an assault incident at a competition 2 years ago and with all the other members leaving, they are in dire need of recruits. Due to a personal incident in the past, Futaba just wanted to hide her superpowers and attend school like an average student….unlike her mother who is one of the most powerful superpower users in the world. Angry that she was fooled to join the club, Futaba wants to ragequit but they beg her to stick around for at least the preliminary round. It’s not until then, that she’s forced to reveal her embarrassing power: Trigger Kiss – a power which allows Futaba to power up her allies by kissing them. (*´∀｀)
