Otome Game Review: Clock Zero ~Shuuen no Ichibyou~ Ex Time

This was originally a review of the PS2 game, but due to me getting the Vita port I realized I had a lot of changes to make. One reason is I played the game 5 years ago and my Japanese improved a lot since then. A lot of stuff made more sense to me so instead of just making a bunch of edits everywhere I decided to just heavily rewrite the entire review. Parts of it are salvaged from my PS2 review but there’s a lot of new stuff added, adjusted as well as the fact that I’ve gone through & posted a summary of ALL 34 ENDINGS! \(^o^)/ The story is about a 12 year old girl Kurou Nadeshiko, who is a rich ojousama attending school with her childhood friend Riichiro. Ever since the transfer student Kaido Takato comes to her class, she seems to have dreams about being in another world every night. The world is a distorted and in ruins and she herself appears 10 years older. Kaga Akira sensei brings Nadeshiko, Takato, Riichiro and 4 other guys to do extra assignments after school. As the kids do these after school assignments, they call themselves team “Clock Zero”.

Otome Game Review: Possession Magenta

Mihara Suzu is your average high school girl who lives with her adopted childhood friend Kanade. One day she finds out one of her classmates is missing and Kanade suggests he might have gotten “possessed”. A possessed person usually becomes violent and starts attacking people like he’s got a bad case of rabies. The next day they find that the missing student has been murdered and nailed to the giant clock in the park. While detectives are going around trying to solve the mystery, Suzu starts to stumble upon some mysterious tarot cards that only she can see. When her friend Matsuri gets possessed, Suzu realizes she can use these cards to turn people back to normal. With this in mind and the fact that everyone is blaming Kanade for the murder, Suzu decides to take matters into her own hands to get to the bottom of things. Continue reading

Otome Game Review: Norn 9 -Last Era-

This is the fandisk for Norn9 that I’ve been dragging on for a month due to getting new apartments, new furniture and new computers. Fortunately it’s also because oddly enough it had a lot of content for a fandisk. (The value of the content may vary by person but I personally enjoyed it.) There’s 4 sections, Prelude – the intro of how everyone came on the ship, Fuga – the original game digest from the guy’s POV, Concerto – the continuing after story and Fantasia – a bonus omake with everyone turning into chibi characters. Spoilers ahead so skip to my final thoughts to avoid them as  usual!

Special: Why I quit buying otome PC games.

pc

Happy May everyone! I’m settling into my new place while plowing through the Norn9 FD! :D Anyway I don’t really do too much of these things anymore but I was just thinking about all these PC games collecting dust on my bookshelf that I have nothing to do with. I came up with all these ideas in my head that I figured would be beyond 140 characters in my twitter account so I’m writing a post. Warning, this is a rant ;D

Otome Game Review: Hitofuta Kitan

While I was waiting for my Vita games to arrive I decided to pick up this game from the bargain bin. It came out in 2012 but it did poorly so that’s why it’s like 70% off on Amazon and why the company hasn’t had any releases since. (´・ω・`) After playing it through myself I now realize why that is – but more on that in my final thoughts. Our story is about Hinokami Chie who ends up going to boarding school when her parents go overseas. One day she runs into a 2 tailed cat ayakashi who tells her that she has some Onmyouji powers and asks her to seal the 12 Chinese Zodiac beasts in the zodiac book.

Otome Game Review: Brothers Conflict -Brilliant Blue-

After god knows how many years of delays, Otomate finally released Brilliant Blue…however now that I finally got to play it, the delays are a mystery to me when all the common route/stat raising/date system is a copy pasta template of Passion Pink! Literally I just sat there force skipping through almost every “family” scene because it was dejavu from the previous game. Some scenes I sat through simply because it has been such a long time since I played PP that I didn’t actually remember if I saw them or not. Despite the copypasta, the individual brothers were still enjoyable for what it’s worth and while it took me a bit getting used to, eventually the system became pretty easy to go through. With improvements such as saving during choices as well as using quick save/quick load unlike last time, this time it was smooth sailing. Anyway on to Ema’s brocon adventures!

Otome Game Review: First Complex

Kousaka Miyuki has transferred back to her old hometown from Tokyo  for her 2nd year of high school. She hasn’t been there since kindergarten so she doesn’t remember much.  She has long messy hair that she uses to cover up her face as a “barrier” because she has a serious case of social anxiety.  When anyone gets near her, even just saying yes and ok is a near disaster for her, so she spends most of her time away from others. A few days after transferring she makes friends with her classmates, Kotaro, Minami and Jun (who are twins) and starts a better outlook on life. Little does she know that the past trauma is about to catch up to her. And here I’m back with another raving review about Tetrascaope’s games which is gonna be all tl;dr because I absolutely loved the story!
