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. (*´∀｀)

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. Our heroine, Sorano Fuu got involved in the drug war because her parents became dealers in order to support the family. Due to getting in a spat with another dealer, Fuu’s parents were killed when she was 7 years old. She was rescued by a pair of Angels and decided to then grow up and enroll in a special academy to become an Angel herself. Now 13 years later, Fuu is 20 and has graduated from the academy. She’s put in a team with 4 other Angels, Yun, Mict, Tchicai and Rayla and the leader Izuki, going on missions to try to find and capture the drug abusers in the town of Akatsuki. During the time spent with her team mates, she discovers more about their pasts with connections to her own. Lots of spoilery text ahead so skip to final thoughts to avoid as usual!
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^)＼.
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.
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.
Our heroine Shiraishi Toko is sent to Hakodate in Hokkaido for a 1 month business trip. When she gets there she runs into her childhood friend, who runs a cafe, as well as his regular friends and customers. This is a mobile game where the intro is free but you pay $3 or so for each guy’s route. There’s 6 guys in total but for several reasons I’ve only bought 1 so I’ll be reviewing only Kohei’s route. Official site here which has links to both the iphone and android versions.
Ayazuki Mei is a gluttonous high school teenager who runs into some do-M wacko named Charlie at a magic show at her local summer festival. Charlie throws her into his magic box and when she comes out, she finds herself thrown back in time into the Meiji era! They’re both hungry so they sneak into a fancy Rokumeikan building but instead of roast beef, they run into famous Meiji era historical figures! So now Mei gets to choose which historical bishie she gets to snag, while dealing with the fact that she’s completely lost all memories of her present time self. On top of this, she magically gains tamayori powers and can see dead people. Read the rest of this entry
Decided to catch up on some old backlog and realized I still never played this fandisk! I’m glad I picked it up since it really reminded me of how much fun the GHP team is and well now I’m really looking forward to their upcoming game (Trigger Kiss). Anyway the FD is split into a few sections – vacation trip, after story, 3P routes, side story and a story for Satsuki. For the vacation trip, because Kyoko was busy training her heart last summer she missed out on her high school summer activities. Her friend offers her special tickets to a private island resort and worried about her heart Kyoko wants to refuse….but Satsuki grabs them and says THIS YO CHANCE GUUURL. And so Kyoko and all her mans fly down for some hot summer events by the sea. The after stories are events immediately following the endings of the first game.
It’s year 2999, and the residents of Albion live in a town which is towered by a large yggdrasil tree with a giant sand clock embedded into it. This sandclock determines humanity’s time and if not flipped properly every 1000 years, humanity will disappear! In order to keep the time flowing, a “BANK” collects everyone’s time and those who do not deposit it eventually get turned into time sand. Our heroine Lucia runs a cafe called Cocono Cocono and is the owner of a small sand clock that resembles the one embedded in the yggdrasil tree. One day the bank informs everyone that an organization called “Baroque” has raided the time bank and stolen all the time. Due to this, there’s only 99 days left until the world ends. Immediate spoilers following the cut!
Alright so we know Quin Rose and Otomate are pumping out stuff monthly but that’s not what this post is about. I’ve reviewed a lot of games on this blog from all sorts of companies…but now that I think about it….what ever happened to company XYZ? I played their game ABC but haven’t heard of them since. Some of these companies were 1 hit wonders who vanished after their terrible first and only release. And so this post is dedicated to those companies who have gone MIA or simply vanished from existence.
