What better way to end a year than with a D3P kusoge amirite!? For some strange reason despite knowing that every D3P game this year had horrid reviews, I decided to give believer a chance. After all it was a straight VN, art looked decent, story seemed legit and it had some nice voice actors – what could POSSIBLY go wrong? Well sadly the one thing that went wrong is the awful writing which basically ruined the rest of the game. But more on that in my final thoughts! Our story starts when Sonozaki Mia’s mother gave her a book when she was little and then both of her parents died. She was adopted by her childhood friend Omi’s family – but then his parents went missing in action! So now Mia lives with Omi and attends school where she has a harem of dudes who just so happen to be her guardians! Turns out Mia harbors some serious magic powers and the book she was given was her personal spell book to defeat the dark lord!! Somehow though, Mia had no idea about any of this until she gets to school and a bunch of angry NPC monsters attack her. After her man harem fights them off, 4 dudes come down calling themselves the Heavenly Four and say that they need her magic book so their Dark Lord can take over the world! *evil laughter* So now Mia has to take on her job as the mage priestess and band with her man harem guardians to save the world from destruction.
Shinoda Honoka is a 21 year old who works in a flower shop. One day she runs into a stray black cat in the park and as she fluffs its fur she mumbles that she wishes she could turn into a cat. The cat grants her wish and Honoka becomes a white nuko – but fortunately only at night. The black cat tells her the only way to break the cat curse is to kiss her one true love (ﾉ´∀｀*).
Akane Rin’s father died when she was little and so her mother became a prostitute to try to make a living to support them. Rin never understood this because she was too young but due to this she had no friends and a lot of kids/parents spread rumors about her. One day her paternal grandma Sumi took her back to her place where she lives in a village called Momiji that is filled with ayakashi. Rin didn’t really like them and after spending a month there she ended up returning back to her house. 10 years later, her mother died probably from being killed by one of her customers but Rin never knew why. She never cried during the funeral and she’s been living on whatever money her mom left while going to school. One of the ayakashi, Gin, who she met when she was little comes to visit her and asks if she wants to come back and live with him and the other Ayakashi at the village she went to in the past. He said that he’s running a restaurant there and she gets free food as well as a place to live. Rin figures she doesn’t wanna deal with any burden of her mother’s leftovers and is running out of money for paying bills…so she decides to leave everything behind and join Gin and other ayakashi at Ponpokorin restaurant.
