Our heroine Alice Liddell finds herself falling down as usual with Peter holding her in his arms. She tries to ask him wtf’s going on but he magically vanishes without saying a word and dumps her into the country of Diamonds. The country of Diamonds major areas are the Castle of Diamonds, The Hatter Mansion, The Train Station and the Graveyard & Art Museum (which are right next to each other.) Alice is now in a new country but unlike her previous move from Heart to Clover, nobody here remembers who she is – except for Nightmare. Suddenly characters like Nightmare and Ace are shotas, Dee & Dum are only in adult form and Vivaldi, Gowland and Pierce are missing in action. Additionally the castle of Diamonds is run by the queen of Diamonds, Crysta Snowpigeon and the new prime minister is now a black rabbit named Sidney Black. Over at the art museum & cemetery area is another mafia with a leader by the name of Jericho Bermuda who is a dodo bird. Alice has to figure out what the hell is going on and at the same time try to convince everyone to like her again. Unfortunately unlike the country of hearts, everyone’s feelings towards her are as cold as a frozen diamond.
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.
This is the 2nd Alice series fandisk after joker. The first half features some original stories with the usual cast in Wonderland, Joker inclusive so that means we still have seasons in various places. The 2nd half is a school parody where the cast of Alice is thrown into the Symphonia Magic Academy from QR’s first game Wizard & Master. Alice transfers to the Symphonia Academy because her CHILDHOOD FRIEND Peter wants to go to the same school as her…and Alice is looking to get away from her sister out of jealousy, just like in the original story. Starting with this game, Quin Rose ditches the turn based system to give us a relaxed straight VN gameplay.
“April Season” has been bestowed on our beloved wonderland. It’s basically Wonderland being stuck in a timeloop that is April 1st aka April Fool’s. Despite being called April Season, all it means is the entire wonderland experiences different seasons based on location. Spring at the heart castle, autumn at the Hatter mansion, Winter at the Clover tower and Summer at the amusement park. This time Alice can’t visit those areas unless the Wonderland season overall matches with the season of that area. Not only that but now there’s an addition of a giant circus run by the Joker in the Door Forest since he’s the “fool” in April Fool’s. Beyond the circus lies the Joker’s prison in which lies the truth to Alice and the world from which she came from. The best part of course Julius and Gowland are back!
So for reasons no other than Quin Rose wanting to do more Alice series, Alice and the wonderland gang move to the country of Clovers. The amusement park and clock tower are gone, replaced with the Clover castle and a forest which has whales swimming through it somehow. ヽ(。_゜)ノ Alice isn’t officially dating anyone but she still has memories so it’s upsetting that Julius and Gowland didn’t move with everyone. Instead she meets Nightmare’s new assistant Gray and a furry mouse in the forest( who’s Boris’ new playtoy) named Pierce. With Julius gone, Nightmare is in charge but he’s too busy coughing up blood so he’s got Gray doing all the dirty work for him. Since Nightmare’s busy running the place, he doesn’t have time to bed intrude into Alice’s dreams so instead she keeps having siscon dreams of Lorina who even in Alice’s dreams tells her to let go and move on with her life. During various periods throughout the game, everyone gathers at the Clover Castle for the assembly during which time fighting is not allowed.
Aileen Olazabal is the daughter in a wealthy Arabian kingdom, but unlike Jasmine, she don’t wanna sit around waiting to marry whoever her parents tell her to. Ok her parents aren’t TOO cruel, they give her an option to marry who she wants – provided that he’s some rich dude. Aileen has no intentions to marry or be the queen of Gilkhatar because she’d rather be some farmer or trader . Even though some of her husband candidates are dudes she is totally ok with, she just wants to rebel against her family cause she’s a quin rose heroine ＼( ^o^)／. Aileen then makes a bet with mommy & daddy that if she can earn 10 million gold in 25 days, they will let her do as she pleases. With this, Aileen’s money gathering adventures begin! Please note, this is the PSP remake of the original PC/PS2/DS game.
There once was an otome game released by Quin Rose called Heart no Kuni no Alice which made you visit characters over 300 times and had some poorly drawn artwork. Since the story was entertaining enough, QR decided to do a remake which they dubbed the “Anniversary Version” where they redid all the art, sprites and cut the number of turns by 100. After this gained enough popularity they decided to port it to the PSP so people could carry it on their way out the door and get more turns done in a day then they would only sitting in front of their PC. And so I bring you the review of the PSP port of Anniversary no Kuni no Alice. Our story takes place where our very rich heroine Alice Lidell is listening to her older sister Lorina read a book to her outside under a tree. Alice admires her sister a lot but in a complex kind of way, due to the fact that her ex-boyfriend dumped her for her sister, who her sister dumped as he wasn’t man enough. As her sister goes to get a deck of cards, Alice decides to take a nap. Her beauty sleep is interrupted when a furry white rabbit named Peter White abducts her and throws her down a hole into Wonderland. As he professes his undying love, he kisses her making her drink some bitter liquid and says that she’s now involved in the game of Wonderland – in which all the people who live there are at Battle Royale with each other on a daily basis. In order for Alice to return home, she needs to whore herself around to various leaders of the various battle zones and gather hearts while avoiding the aspect of self responsibility. Unfortunately for our tsuntsun QR heroine, her plans to return get crushed when she starts falling in love.
So for old time’s sake I decided to replay my first otome game, Love Drops for the PS2. Obviously this means taking out all the pr0n, adding new scenes and there’s actually a new character. This will be mostly a comparison post rather than a full summary. For the original game summary please see my PC game post.
So if you think this is the story about little red riding hood…think again. They basically decided to shove every fairy tail element they could think of and so came out Akazukin. I’d say its like red riding hood + snow white mixed with some sleeping beauty? XD Anyway the story starts out when our (not so little) red riding hood Tiana is told by her step mother to go and visit her uncle on the other side of the forrest. She gives her a map of the forest but her mom’s a dirty cumslut and the map is purposely in a way that will make Tiana fall into a river and die. Tiana knows her mom’s a stupid bitch so she tears up the map and decides she’ll just go into the forest and get eaten by the big bad wolf! Unfortunately for Tiana the wolf she runs into happens to look like he came out of Twilight and because I guess Tiana’s giant boobs & thunder butt aren’t satisfactory for him, he tells her that he’ll “raise her to be more plump” before he makes a 3 course meal out of her. So now she gets to stay in Mr. Wolf’s house while she interacts with all his furry friends and the 7 little perverts. One day Tiana returns home to see if her dad was worried about her, but her dad & stepmom threw away all her things as if she’s dead and are now having a new baby of their own. She runs back to the forest and decides to never return home. Will Tiana ever leave the forest and get revenge on her piece of shit family? Spoilers ahead…so skip to my final thoughts to avoid them! Also this game’s R-18 so please read at your own risk. Read the rest of this entry
