Our heroine Komori Yui has been dumped by her priest father, told that he’s gone off to do work alone and can’t take her with him. Instead he tells her to go live in the house of an old acquaintance of his – but that house just happens to be filled with 6 RICH vampire brothers. Of course they’re not just your average blood suckers – they all have major psychological issues! Their father is a manslut vampire who loves the ladies so he knocked up 3 of them to have 6 kids currently ranging from ages 17 – 19. So now Yui has to live with these wackos and she tells them that she’ll be the one to decide who gets to suck her blood. However, as she spends more time being their therapist, she discovers a shocking secret inside her body.
And so this is the SYK fandisk. I was intending to play the PSP version for the omakes but since it decided to crash on me everytime I wanted to skip the damn opening movie I decided to play the PS2 version instead! The game contains after stories for the whole cast as well as some side stories for the heaven dudes.
Since Otomate decided to do a game based off Houshin Engi, I figured now would be a good time to get this out of my backlog. This is basically Otomate’s spin on a Journey to the West. Since this is the Japanese version though, it’s actually quite similar to this, but instead Genjou Sanzou this time is our HEROINE, who gathers her group of good looking idiots to go on an epic adventure to Tenjiku to save the world!
So apparently this game is based on a set of drama CDs whose prominent feature is the dummy head mic. The dummy head mic makes it feel like the voice of the person is whispering in your ear so needless to say this being my first experience, I WAS REALLY FREAKED OUT (((( ;ﾟдﾟ))))ｱﾜﾜﾜﾜ. Our heroine, Himeko, has some hot butler man bed intrude into her room telling her he’ll read her some bedtime stories. The best part of course is that she can experience these stories by being the heroine in each one! It sounds too good to be true, and well it is because these aren’t your Cinderella fairy tales. These are mostly horror stories where Prince Charming is responsible for ending the heroine’s life . This time however, each story gives us multiple outcomes and “what if” scenarios, allowing the reader to experience a variety plot twists.
So I left HNK2 for last because I feel like it’s the bastard child of the whole series. The only thing it has going for it is Kazuki Yone is still the artist for it but the characters are different, the seiyuus are different, and the entire Tamayorihime story is twisted in such a weird way that I wonder what they were thinking then they made it. Well they realized the ORIGINAL was a massive failure so actually this is in fact a remake of the Hisui no Shizuku (hence the 真) because apparently they remade all the chars personalities and for some reason kicked off the HNK1 cast off the face of the earth. I’m not about to extend my hiiro marathon and play the original for comparison so you’ll just have to satisfy yourselves with the remake review XD. So this time we have a good girl Suzu (similar to Saya from HNK4). Her mother is the Tamayorihime but she says soon the Ryujin (Dragon God) seal will break and Suzu will be the next in line for the Tamayorihime duties. One rainy night the seal does break and her mother Ayako indeed goes to seal it, sacrificing her life in the process. On top of this, the spirit of the Toyotamahime, who just so happens to be the older sister of the original Tamayorihime (that we never knew) escapes and possesses Suzu’s older sister Mao. So now the village has a half broken seal with demons running around everywhere and Suzu’s gotta train to seal it up. If that wasn’t bad enough, Toyotamahime-Mao comes and tells Suzu that she hated Tamayorihime (Marsha Marsha Marsha!) and wants her to die while fully breaking the seal so she can get the rest of her powers back. Suzu’s like “k sure I’ll die as long as my mans are alive” but Suzu’s childhood friend and guardian Akira won’t be havin’ any of that. Additionally, in HNK2, the guardians are humans and are not gods with inner animal powers. They fight with weapons which they are able to pull out of thin air (lol) if their bond with Suzu is strong enough thanks to the Magatama powers. This also means that if the bond weakens, they will be completely useless bums so Suzu’s got a lot on her plate. With the help of her loli neko guardians Sana & Kana, and manharem (+1 sarcastic token bff chick) she’s got to get her sister back to normal and save Japan! Read the rest of this entry
And so we have the fandisk for Summer! Right off the bat I’m just going to say how much better this is than the Spring fandisk. I guess when the original is awesome the FD is awesome and when the original is fail well you get the picture ( ´_ゝ`). The story starts out with a common route where everyone from the archery club gathered together at some izakaya after 4 years and reminisce about their high school days. From there you pick which dude you wanna follow and then you can proceed to do that guy’s after story. In the common route everyone flashed back to their 3rd year of high school and their training camp for archery. Inukai and Shiratori got into a fight and then made up. They have a test of courage and the 3 new guys along with Tsukiko scare the pants off everyone Koguma becomes the next captain after Miyaji’s retirement and Azusa takes the vice captain position (saying he’s not meant to be a leader.) Fortunately unlike spring, they didn’t need to add in too many random characters because the cast of summer is awesome as is! Read the rest of this entry
Now normally the only RPG games I play are the MMO kind so I had almost rage quit this too but as usual Koori helped me persevere and eventually I had things figured out. I also read Sharakael’s tips on the game so be sure to check those out for more useful information! If you’ve made it through Love Revo, then I can assure you that you can make it through this since essentially the effort is the same – but this game allows you to carry over character levels making each route a lot easier. The story is about our heroine Nina who is playing an otome RPG game (because she’s an otaku apparently) and then one morning she gets sucked into it! So now it’s up to US to play the game for her so she can get out of the land of Rode The ironic part being of course – Nina has a boyfriend! But what does she do? Get cozy with videogame hunks despite him later falling into the game as well and joining her party! ／(^o^)＼ﾅﾝﾃｺｯﾀｲ Warning I’ve included a guide so this post is going to be long!

The Japanese slogan as a mouthful so I just translated it into English. This is Madoka Games’ first release – but don’t be fooled, as Madoka Games is actually Mirai Soft’s all ages brand. I’m glad they are thinking beyond the porn for once but I have to admit it really does show that that’s all they think about. This may have been their first all ages release but it felt like it was released by a company that’s never made an otome game before. Anyway the story is very simple. Our heroine Asuka is the manager of her high school’s baseball team who also works part time in a cafe with her older brother Haruto as well as her younger brother Hikaru. The town folk get together and realize if they don’t somehow make their town stand out, everyone will start to leave and their shopping district and community will fall apart. They ask Haruto to become the coach and guide the high school baseball team to make it to Koshien. Doesn’t help that one of that star players of the team is moving away as well, so now it’s up to Asuka to convince everyone who quit to come back and kick some baseball ass! This isn’t a problem of course since everyone is her childhood friend Read the rest of this entry
So the artist who brought us big boobed loli Asche from under the moon is back with a vengeance in her new piece, Riddle Garden. This one doesn’t have such huge gozangas but she still has that loli face and it doesn’t help that she’s so tiny in comparison to all the mans. So anyway it’s a story about Colette who lives in this prison castle and she has no idea how she got there or why she lives there. All she knows is she cannot live if she leaves it until one day a bunch of eligible bachelors come and she must pick one to marry and leave the castle. Oh noes whatever will she do (how old is she to be married to begin with!? ) This game has the heroine voiced like in UTM as well, and in fact Asche’s seiyuu is even in this game voicing Colette’s maid xD. Spoilers ahead as usual. Read the rest of this entry
Fandisk ｷﾀ━━━(ﾟ(ﾟ∀(ﾟ∀ﾟ(☆∀☆)ﾟ∀ﾟ)∀ﾟ)ﾟ)━━━!!! Yea I’ve been wanting to play this for a long time ❤ The premise basically is Miku wants to go to the school’s Christmas party and then her dad gives her a box of candy. Depending on the candy you choose, it throws you into a “Miku is in a relationship with XXX but he doesn’t seem to show his love for her” story. Additionally all the guys get some goofy new outfit (like some wolf ears for Saliya and some traditional Japanese garments for Touya.) Details & spoilers after the jump as usual!

This game felt more like an mmorpg to me than an typical dating sim but let’s roll with it . JP commented that it’s harry potter the otome game but I think it’s a lot more similar to Zero no Tsukaima lol xD. The story starts out with a flashback of an abandoned baby. A woman who already has a baby of her own volunteers to take it under her wing and raise it as her own child. With this she raises her real son Akito and her newly adopted daughter Yume. The two of them grow up to be happy siblings, until Akito turns 14 and hits puberty therefore starting to probably have feelings for his non-blood related sister. I see what ya did thar Strawberry Maiden xD Now at age 19, they both set off for the Silver Star Magic Academy (located in England lol) where if you pass special magical trials, you can make a wish upon the golden dragon. Yume’s wish is to find out who her real parents are. Yume’s room mate is a fat girl from China named Gyokurei, who is also already married but her husband is back in his home country. Be warned the game is R-18. Also super major spoilers and tl;dr ahead – so if you wanna skip them just scroll all the way down to my final impressions. Read the rest of this entry
What happens if you take Fushigi Yuugi and combine it with Hanasakeru Seishounen? You get this otome game. The story is about a very ojou-sama type heroine who her best friend and brother call “hime-sama”. She also gets picked for some important main lead role in the traditional school play. She’s also one of the top school students and the class president of her class. Hell even the randy nurse man hits on her. She’s got 2 close female friends Nono-chan and Tsubaki-chan – although Tsubaki is actually an important role in one of the routes while Nono is just the “supportive best friend” character. One day she chases some black nuko and ends up in some arabian country that she read about in her play book (hence the FY reference.) Apparently she’s some shrine maiden princess who will save that country (hurr) and make the prince there a king. During the night in the other world she ends up back at home in her world. Then when she goes to sleep at night in her world, she’s back in arabian country land. And so our story begins. (Warning: Major spoilers ahead, name butchering follows.) Read the rest of this entry
