Otome Game Review: Senjou no Waltz

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

Otome Game Review: Code: Realize ~Sousei no Himegimi~

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.

Otome Game Review: Hanasaku Mani Mani

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 50 years into the future, in the country of Cloud. Cloud’s been plagued with a massive drug war on the drug called “Star” and has been ignored by other countries to help stop the spread. The drug, like any drug, has destroyed families and caused gang wars and mass murders. In order to combat the ongoing problem of both dealers and drug abusers (coined as “Stardust”), a team of “Angels” has been formed. These angels go around trying to capture and rehabilitate the drug abusers in order to help get to the root of the problem, and to put an end to the drug war.

Otome Game Review: Otonari-san ni Goyoujin ~Serendipity Next Door~

So I decided to finally fully play and review a Voltage game. And this time, I’m not dealing with that GREE shit, I just straight up bought 3 routes from Serendipity Next Door. I hope you enjoyed my $12 Voltage so now I can go ranting about how much of a ripoff your games really are. The story is about our  25 year old heroine (arbitrarily named Harukawa Sanae) who works in an import foods department and one day gets switched to import household goods instead. At the same time she gets to better know the neighbors in her apartment building.  I didn’t realize the Japanese title literally meant “Be careful of your neighbor” because I sure as hell now know what they meant by that /(^o^)\.

Otome Game Review: Re:Vice[D] ~Dear my Lord, I definitely find you~

And so this is my first Vita otome game! Gonna critique the hell out of that in my final thoughts :P.  Aika lives in the underworld serving her dark lord. One day the dark lord has to go off to war to fight. He leaves the throne in Aika’s hands until he returns, but he never makes it back. Aika decides it’s time to find a replacement and she and her 3 man slaves the other 3 guardians head to earth. The four of them each find a human who they think is a “good candidate” for the throne. It’s now up to the great election book Mike to test them all out to see who is the one best fit to be the next dark lord.

Otome Game Review: Sakuya

For reasons I cannot explain I’ve been holding off on playing this game but I finally got to it and HELL YEA WORTH ALL THE $8 I PAID FOR IT. Seriously Tetrascope strikes again with their beautiful art and amazing writing and characterization. It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed an otome game maker this much and they’re not even an official company! So I’ll just have to throw my money at them in hopes they will produce more awesome games for me to enjoy \( ^o^)/. The story takes place in a distant future where android robots are now part of society. Our heroine Akane, lives with an android robot named Sakuya that her father created. Her childhood friend Shin wants to buy Sakuya for his company to research but Akane refuses to sell him. She has trouble making ends meet and if she sold him she’d be set for life but she can’t bring herself to sell him cause he’s like family to her now. Before her father died he told her to always be with Sakuya for the rest of her life, and if they were ever to part, to destroy him.
