Hello once again, mesubutas! Whomst among us does not enjoy a realized code? Unlike my earlier sojourns into girl gamer land, I did not purchase Code Realize in a 99% off Steam sale using the money I got from selling Steam cards that I got from idling in Crusader Kings 2 to Russian money launderers…but instead I did nab the Bouquet of Rainbows double edition (yes that’s right, this means that I will be playing the poruno fandisc shortly as well) during a random sale over the summer for about $20. Unfortunately for all of you, I never got to really get into it in earnest because shortly after purchasing it the ol’ ball and chain decided that she was going to required me to roll multiple new alts in FFXIV in case she wanted to take kissing screenshots for all the other alts she had. But fortunately for all of you, a few days ago I smashed her Diabolik Lovers mug and she got mad enough to no longer require me to keep playing with said alts and exiled me to the PS4 room to finish this (I should’ve been lauded for destroying an artifact from such a cursed franchise…) So anyway, here we gooooooooooooooooo! (Spoilers of course, but c’mon this game came out 6 years ago and all of you have already played it by this point anyway.)
So out of extreme boredom due to lack of any otome games I want to play (and because I dropped Eden like a ton of bricks) I decided to browse the English Switch shop and purchased Diamond Girl. I remember seeing the advertising about the mobage 5 years ago but I didn’t wanna do the whole “read 5 chapters a day” thing so I forgot about it until now. Looks like they’ve ported the entire game and routes without any waiting to the switch for $20 in 3 languages – except Japanese. That’s right there is NO Japanese edition of this game! ( ﾟдﾟ) Not only that but the mobile version has ended service 5 years ago too lol. The story is about our heroine Charlotte (default name apparently in the English version) who is some office lady but finds out she’s actually some hidden child of a rich dude. Now she has to become some ojousama and marry into an arranged marriage. She’s sent to live with 4 ikemans, one of which is her personal butler, in a luxurious mansion and is to train how to be a proper ojousama until it’s time to marry her fiance. Please note as this is a mobile game port, this game is unvoiced.
When I started playing this game I found out the sad news that minori. actually went out of business a year ago. While I wasn’t a fan of them constantly blocking foreigners from their site, I did like a few of their games. With steam having their usual season sale I decided to pick up both the EF games (first tale and latter tale) and eden so I will be playing and reviewing them back to back. The story focuses on various couples rather than the standard protag + heroines format. We begin our tale with the heroine Yuuko meeting up with her friend Yuu and talking about what happened in “the past”. Just a warning, I did NOT enjoy this game so if you’re a huge fan I don’t recommend reading this.
