Happy Halloween! I have coincidentally picked a perfect game for the occasion! (＾ω＾) Kashino Zakuro gets an invitation one day to a castle for a 3 AM tea party. She seems like your average girl, but she’s suffering from loneliness and guilt because when she was 12, she lost her twin brother. They were out on a family trip and when the 2 of them went into the woods, a fog appeared and they got separated – the brother to never be seen again. She comes to the castle and meets 5 other guys there who have also been invited. They all wear fancy clothes and act like her butlers because they are told she is now the “Queen”. Everyone goes along with it, but the next day when they try to leave, the fog in the forest leads them right back into the castle. Upon their return the owner of the castle, a creepy demon clown, jumps into Zakuro’s body saying that she is now the new “Sweet Clown”. A Sweet Clown is a demon who grants wishes, but as payment he turns the person who made the wish into a pastry and eats them. Turns out that she’s been chosen as the candidate for his new body and the entire tea party invitation is a ceremony just for that. Unfortunately for the clown, Zakuro has no regrets leaving the outside world nor does she have any personal desires. Due to this, the demon clown cannot fully possess her and on top of this she accidentally makes a self-sacrificial wish and ends up it making it permanently night time and locking every window & door in the castle. So now it’s up to the 5 mans to get Zakuro to desire something in order become the Sweet Clown and let everyone out. As usual skip to my final thoughts to avoid massive spoilers.

Wow was this game certainly a disappointment! If you’re coming with the hopes that it’ll be as great as Karin’s other games, you should just kick dem nasty thoughts and be prepared to omnomnom some copypasta. There was once a woman whose husband passed away and she met a wizard. She begged for him to bring her husband back to life but he said he cannot do that. Instead, he said he’d make her other wish come true and give her a child. He gave her a magic seed and out of the seed came out a little girl who learned how to use magic spells. However on her 15th birthday, the girl Charlotte shrinks to become fun sized and the entire village coins her “Thumbelina”. This is all because the magic spell the magician cast to protect her had wore off. Unfortunately one day the dark knight with his band of angry scissor wielding lizards come and set the village on fire. They demand for the village to hand over Charlotte but her mother and her childhood friend Match Boy, named Lars, are determined to protect her. Unfortunately her mother is killed, and before she dies she tells Charlotte to take the magic book and run for the hills. And so Charlotte and Lars go on an adventure to find out more about who is after her and to see if she can return to being big again.
Sorry for the delay on this post but I’ve been meaning to give a brief guide on filling out Otomate opinion cards if you live outside Japan. Typically the opinion cards only came with their limited edition games, however now all their Vita games come with one. If you feel strongly about a game you played I encourage you to fill it out and send it to them! Opinion cards help companies know what their fans want, and let’s face it, their fans aren’t just in Japan anymore and we should let them know! Also by sending cards from other countries, it lets them know that hey, there are people out there who import their games from Japan so it could be a deciding factor on whether or not they want to localize the game for the English speaking audience.
Sanjou Yunoha is an aspiring fashion designer, working part time jobs to afford her life and education. Her mother wanted her to take over the family business of running an inn located in Kanazawa, but Yunoha’s a career woman and she ain’t got no time for dat. She ran away from home 2 years earlier to pursue her dream job. One day her mother collapses and is hospitalized so Yunoha returns back to the inn to see her….but her mother is nowhere in sight. She’s instead greeted by her childhood friend Kintaro, who wants her to take over the landlady position until her mother recovers. Yunohana is against it until the hotel owner next door calls her family inn an old busted craphole. This boils her blood and she agrees to work as a landlady for 3 months…until her mother calls her and tells her that she has to be there until autumn. As Yunoha works at Fukujuro, her feelings begin to sway about her career or being a full time innkeeper.
