So I ran a backlog poll on my blog a few weeks ago and All Star was the top choice so while waiting for my Amnesia Crowd to arrive I figured it would be a good way to kill a week. Surprisingly the game took longer than a week but ultimately – I REGRET NOTHING. Those who read my Debut review may remember my SCATHING words towards UtaPri and Broccoli and the many tables that were flipped during broadcast. Fortunately, Broccoli listened to their reviews on Amazon, kicked out all the fanfic writers and had Mr. Crazy Goat handle the storyline this time around. With this, the game went back to being a fun game about a hard working music composer and the idols she composes songs for. Our story this time is Haruka has no partner and she ended up graduating all on her own efforts (fuck yea screw those men Haruka you don’t need them!) She wasn’t able to take the master course cause all the guys were busy BLing up with each other and leaving her forever alone. Haruka’s new job is to compose a song for the Christmas concert featuring the special shuffle unit with the 4 senpais: Reiji, Ranmaru, Ai and Camus. In addition, after this she must partner up with one of them and compose a song to enter into the music festival competition. If she does not win the competition she will not be able to debut and will be kicked out of the agency.
This is the fandisk to the original VitaminZ game and takes place immediately before and continues up until way after the A4 & P2 graduate. Additional bonuses also include some individual “after” endings for the GTR and R+ as well. The story is it’s now the time right before the guys are about to graduate but the B6 decide to go off on vacation for 3 months so now the graduation has to be handled by Manami and the GTR.
A sequel (?) to the first Yuugiroku game Otomate decided to poop out Yuugiroku 2. Unfortunately Kazuki Yone’s been gone for like 2 years so they had to get one of their copy cats to do all the CGs. Sadly this didn’t fare too well so to add salt on to the wound they decided to add a confusing as all hell system to make me flip multiple tables. (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻ Read the rest of this entry
Lisa Bernet is a bounty hunter who decided to become one so she could follow in the footsteps of her badass mother. She took strict training under Bremen March but despite him saying “bounty hunters aren’t saviors”, Lisa can’t help but try and rescue those in need. She has ridiculous strength, and can lift up trees and heavy boulders if need be to save someone. She goes to the bar to pick up bounties from the organization called Grimm, and most of the WANTED list consists of Grimm Brothers characters . It’s up to Lisa to capture them and get rich quick, but she may have a little problem when she starts fraternizing with her targets.
And so Rejet mish mashed all the TYB guys into 3 separate fandisks anda the first one is called Fresh Ginger featuring the gyaruo’s Iori & Kotaro as well as Edokko boy Tetsu.
So after graduating Saotome academy Haruka is ready to “debut” with her dude until Saotome bursts in saying they all need to take a master course first. The master course will be lead by one of their idol senpais and the goal is to come up with a song in 3 months. If they succeed the senpai will give them a brother emblem which will be a token of passing to debuting. All the guys have to move in with their senpais leaving Haruka forever alone as she “works hard on her own”. And well they weren’t kidding because in this game Haruka pretty much tags along as the senpais give all the princes the run around with their attitudes. Not sure if this takes place before or after the fandisks but seeing how all the characters personalities get warped to horrible extremes, abandon all hope after the jump!
Our hero Ibuki Ryunosuke is on the brink of death until he’s found by Serizawa, the current leader of the Shinsengumi (prior to Kondo) who says to come with him. Ryunosuke is so out of it that after eating a riceball from Serizawa he starts hearing his mom’s voices in his head calling him a pathetic loser and that he’s shaming his dead father and ancestors from 1000 years! Ryunosuke decides he values his life so he decides to come along and ends up being Serizawa’s manbitch as he hangs out with some historical bishies.
Whew 2 reviews in 1 day! So while I was busy with TYB on my PC, I needed something to occupy my commute and since the US release of Hakuoki is upon us, I decided to play Hakuoki Yuugiroku. The story is one day Hijikata and Chizuru overhear Itou saying he lost something and so when they split up to look for it, Chizuru is lucky enough to find it. However when she opens up the mystery box, suddenly everyone goes into chibi mode and now Chizuru (and your dude of choice) have to figure out a way to return back to normal. The challenge is, you must successfully pass a bunch of mini games to get to the bottom of things!
This is the “introduction” fandisk to the 3 TYB fandisks coming this year. The guys are split up into 3 teams: Fresh Ginger, Pure Raspberry and Black Vanilla. This time the first 3 days all 9 of them go on a date with Chihiro and then based on which “team” she choses, she gets to do the activities with the 3 guys from that team. In the end she can pick 1 guy from the winning team. Additionally this disk adds a complete route for our favorite Mr. Vaccine, Kyohei.
So following the first game, we now have a different heroine (who I’ve named Hiro In because Mary Sue was last game ) that’s got love problems. Her friends tell her about the renai banchos but she’s already well aware of it because she’s heard of the “Legendary Angel!” aka the first game’s Mary Sue. One day a flying chibi girl named Katherine gives Hiro a rainbow handkerchief saying to throw it up near a tree in the courtyard, rather than off the school rooftop like before. As she walks around confused a bunch of random guys, who she thinks are transfer students, ask her about the handkerchief but she lies saying she doesn’t have it. When she gets home she runs into Koakuma Bancho who tells her to stop lying and that throwing the handkerchief during a full moon will make something good happen to her. She goes back to the school courtyard at night and throws the handkerchief and immediately gets 8 hot men at her service. As like with Mary Sue, Hiro can now pick one of them to be her boyfriend for a year to teach her the ways of love.
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.
