I’ve been buying Taiko no Tatsujin games pretty much with every release since Donder Quest on the Vita and I can definitely say this is one of the weaker ones of the bunch.
Ayazuki Mei is a gluttonous high school teenager who runs into some do-M wacko named Charlie at a magic show at her local summer festival. Charlie throws her into his magic box and when she comes out, she finds herself thrown back in time into the Meiji era! They’re both hungry so they sneak into a fancy Rokumeikan building but instead of roast beef, they run into famous Meiji era historical figures! So now Mei gets to choose which historical bishie she gets to snag, while dealing with the fact that she’s completely lost all memories of her present time self. On top of this, she magically gains tamayori powers and can see dead people.
01/30/2020 – I’ve updated it to add Iwasaki Tosuke’s route from the Vita port/mobile game. Original review was from 2014.
Aria is an orphan living alone in her parents’ house for the last 8 years. Her parents died in an accident when she was 10 and ever since she’s been taking care of the house and studying to be a wizard. It’s been her dream to enter the Iris School of Wizardry and well dreams come true when she gets accepted and her tuition magically paid by an unknown patron. She joins the Class X Society as well thanks to her turbo photographic memory. Right before she enters the school she adopts a black cat named Titi.
