VNs targetted towards dudes
I decided to take a break from otome gaming (thanks to Amnesia Crowd) and while playing RO2 on the side I also picked up Tomoyo After. I’ve always been curious about the game in the past and when I found out the PSP port has the protag voiced by Nakamura Yuichi I figured why not? It’s only 1 route, since it’s really just like Nagisa’s after story in Clannad except this time, it’s for Tomoyo. Sadly, unlike Nagisa, Tomoyo does not get her happy ending or any kind of miracle. Major story spoilers ahead so skip to my final thoughts to avoid them.
Since elections in America happened recently I figured this would be an appropriate game to play (plus I saw the anime so I was curious!) Oojima Yuuki attends a rich elite Takafuji Gakuen where it’s pretty much guaranteed that if you go here you’ll get into a good company to work. He is in the food research club but all they do there is eat candy and slack off (along with the teacher who handles it.) Yuuki’s not the strongest of protagonists since his father passed away and mother is almost never home due to work. He’s always getting the run around by his childhood friend Chisato and is pretty much your average Gary Stu. When the student council elections are coming up, one of the candidates Shinonome Satsuki wants to shut down any clubs without any real purpose. Since the food research club is a bunch of b/s they’re on the chopping block. To combat this, everyone in the club shoves Yuuki to run for president. Yuuki runs away crying like a little pansy until Chisato yells at him convincing him to be a man and win that election! Unfortunately running for president isn’t all it’s cracked out to be especially when there is a huge issue of bullying that plagues the school.

Our hero Kunisaki Yukito comes to a town to try and earn money with his puppet play. Unfortunately the kids laugh at him and the doll gets blown away somewhere. While he’s looking for it like a bum without any luck until he runs into a blonde haired girl named Misuzu. She demands that he hang out with her because she appears to be bored out of her mind and the only way she gets him to come along is by offering him food because he’s a starving bum. She offers him to stay at her house since she knows he has nowhere to go, and even though he protests, Misuzu says that he’s her friend so it’s okay. The mom isn’t too thrilled but she lets him stay in the shed as long as he watches over Misuzu while she’s at work.:lol: As Yukito spends more time in this town, he discovers the past ties with her while looking for a “girl in the sky”. The Ps2 version had Yukito voiced by Midorikawa Hikaru which definitely gave the game a lot more life. Also fortunately unlike Kanon, it actually had automode.Well this is as much spoilers as I’m going to give in the intro so click to read them all….or just skip to my final thoughts!

Okano Makoto, a milk loving hentai, has made a promise with his loli childhood friend Minamo, before he moved that they would meet again. So now 10 years later he’s now moved to his mother’s hometown with his sister and he runs into his childhood friend on the roof of the school building. She’s recently moved into this town as well because her father was born here too. In that town some people can use a special “power” to do various things. For example, Minamo can make the wind blow and Hinata can jump high but Makoto has no idea what his power is or if he even has one. Minamo’s dad tries to figure out why people have these powers, when strange things and mysterious illnesses prevail. Anyway I’ve actually played the ero version back in 2002 but yea my Japanese was crap back then so I decided to replay the PS2 version so I could understand the story better & check out all the new scenes that were inserted to replace the pointles pr0n . Probably spoilers ahead so skip to final thoughts to avoid them as usual. Read the rest of this entry
Taking a break from otome games I decided to replay Kanon the PS2 version. I played in about 10 years ago, the PC version with no BGM, no voices and my Japanese level was pathetic where I didn’t understand anything anyway. I’m sure everyone & their grandma knows the story and/or watched both animes (i.e. me) but I figured I’d treat this like I treat all my reviews so expect a novel below! Please note this is the PS2 version so everyone was voiced (except Yuichi) and there was no unnecessary porn. The story is about Aizawa Yuichi who moves in with his aunt and cousin back to a town that he left 7 years ago. Due to a possible PTSD he’s forgotten a lot of stuff that happened 7 years ago and as he spends more time living there it’s all coming back to him now. Read the rest of this entry
Hi guys this is my final game rehash post. Any game review posts after this will be new ones. I’m in the process of finishing LoveRevo so expect the review up for that sometime by the end of the week ^^. I couldn’t find the actual opening of this game (I don’t remember if there even was one) so here’s 3D eva chars dancing to Hare Hare Yuukai XD. Read the rest of this entry
I remember I played this game because I heard the anime was coming out. Turns out it was some web anime that I couldn’t watch because you had to have a Japanese IP to watch it on Yahoo streaming (so lame). However someone then posted the episodes on torrent so I watched it. I was horrified that in the anime the guy ended up with the moaner because that’s who everyone voted on. It was kind of annoying that the anime ending was decided based on web votes but yea with the typical dumb girl otaku stereotype, I’m not surprised she won -_-;. At least the ED song was pretty addictive lol. Read the rest of this entry
This is my rehash Clannad review. I saw both anime series and I have to say it was a pretty poor adaptation in comparison to Air and Kanon. It’s too bad by the time they animated Clannad KyoAni was all about moefodder shit to actually care to animate it properly. I did cry in after story but the 2nd half of the first series and 1st half of the 2nd series was complete and utter shit. The game however was brilliant and I cried through an entire tissue box.

This is another rehash post guys. I really liked this game – it was illustrated by Ito Noiji so everything is forking adorable. It could almost be like an otome game with the gender reversal to be honest. The problem is liked Sumomo so much I couldn’t bear to see her honey with any other girl so I didn’t play the other girl’s routes xD;; Sorry! Read the rest of this entry
So today I finished the brief Hatsune Miku doujin game. I listed it under eroge because it’s really meant for a male audience even though there’s technically no actual “ero-scenes” in it. The story is pretty much the vocaloid version of Chobits. “You” are a dude who plays in a band and one day after your live you find Miku wrapped up in bandages near the garbage. You take her home because she’s one of those “androids that have come out recently”. You boot her up and spend 10 days with her, making songs and making out. Unfortunately after 10 days I guess her demo expires and so she shuts down, so now it’s up to you to spend money and buy the full program so you can be with Miku forever and ever and ever! Also at the end of the game she learns to cook. It was kinda weird since you never saw the male because the male was supposed to be “you” and it was hard to umm feel like a male since I’m a girl rofl so I couldn’t really get all emotional when Miku was “dying”. The art quality was really nice though and it’s a pretty short game that’s worth checking out (assuming you can read Japanese since there’s no voices at all.)
So after a 2 months of playing on and off I finally finished Nursery rhyme. The problem is this game was Lump of Sugar’s first release and sadly the only thing going for it is a catchy theme song and really cute and well drawn CGs. The game has like no story and everything is stereotypical as possible. I mean there are some stereotypical stuff that I like, but it felt as if the main male lead, Shizuma was some kind of asexual starfish that had no reactions or feelings towards anyone in the game – that is until the last 4 arcs.
