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.
And so this is the fandisk to Oumagatoki but this time Moegi and Mitsugu get full routes. Some massive OOC and QuinRose rage ahead, you’ve been warned.
Shinozawa Mai is your average 17 year old high school student who works part time as a shrine maiden and lives with her extremely older cousin Chisato. Her shrine boss, who is a do-S douchebag named Kyouga, tells her to deliver a flower to some salarymans. Little does Mai know that those salarymans will cross over the pedo border and be her future husbandos.
Taku is Nanako’s boy next door neighbor since they were kids. He’s an otaku and PC nerd but lo and behold by night time he’s apparently a giant manwhore. (lll￣□￣)ｶﾞｰﾝ!! Needless to say, this volume was rather disappointing as well and although it wrapped up some of the mysteries regarding Nanako’s family murder, the romance and stuff regarding Taku was done rather sloppily. I’ll talk about more in my final thoughts.
So as we saw in every other Shinobazu game, Tonosawa Genki’s plotline is that he has to move to India to rejoin his parents because his bath house is getting shut down.
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.
This is the 4th Shinobazu 7 CD/game for Fujimaru Seijurou. Seijuro is the strict student council president and also the son of a yakuza family. He’s been very aloof after Nanako’s family incident, but that’s because he’s secretly been trying to search and avenge her family’s killer.
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
The story this time centers around Kisaragi Miki, also Nanako’s childhood friend and kouhai. He’s the son of a rich producer so despite acting like a happy shota all the time, he’s always under a lot of pressure. He often idolizes Fujimaru because he feels like they have a lot in common being sons in a rich family and because Fujimaru feels like a leader to him.

Luckily for Ema, her new step mom can’t keep her legs closed and had like 13 children all ranging ages 11 – 32. Ema’s got a truck load of new step brothers but they are more than willing to cross over the sibling line. Read the rest of this entry
Happy Halloween! Natalie Taylor is your average 17 year old high school girl…in NEW YORK CITY YEAAAA! So since this game takes place in my city, it was a must play on my list. ＼( ^o^)／ Natalie’s mom LIZ Taylor is a ho who runs around bars and gets with random ikemens. Liz’s bff is a super flaming fashion designer Charles and her father is a rich corporate douchebag who steals money from other companies! Poor Natalie is stuck between 2 relatives neither of who really give a crap about her. Deciding she wants to be more independent, she works many part time jobs but it’s just not enough. She then jumps on a bandwagon to join a group of guys who have a plan to earn $30 million and split between the 6 of them (+7th guy who joins in at a later time.) All the guys in this group have various reasons for why they need the money and they call themselves CM7 ( Confidential Money + 7 people. ) Unfortunately for Natalie, their plan involves stealing money from her douchebag grandpa on the 4th of July.
