Soooooooooo, it’s summertime, and you know what that means: Steam sales! The rest of the Taisho Alice games all got released in pretty rapid fashion so I picked them all up at the discounted rate. Again, as before they’re releasing these games in four parts, so this one just covers Gretel and Kaguya (plus the short prologue with Katakana Alice, of course) and therefore still doesn’t cover any of the overarching metanarrative just yet.
That’s right, it’s time once again for me to sell some more Steam cards to Russian money launderers and play some more PC otome games! I had bought this game as usual during one of the regular Steam sales…and didn’t realize that the next Taisho Alice game had come out recently as well. So next time that one is also available for like seven cents I’ll also pick it up, but for now it’s just Cinderella and Little (Big?) Red Riding Hood. This one’ll be shorter than usual since it’s only covering two routes out of full game, and again as usual I’ll include spoilers because this game came out like 5 years ago.
So I kept seeing the Meikoi twitter retweeting all these new CGs and my curiosity got the best of me so I downloaded their new app. Update: This app will end service on July 31, 2020.
This is the sequel to the KBO series that basically takes place after the “normal” ending of the first game. In other words Hinako never got those otome endings with any of the guys, only friend ones and continues to be the bancho of Shishiku. A new first year student Sagara Tenma comes as a new character and constantly challenges Hinako until she kicks his ass as usual. The new thing now though, after the 2nd year ends, Shishiku’s gonna get destroyed because apparently they just discovered it was some site of an old war zone and there might be some bombs/traps that could be buried underneath. So after all these years they decided to tear it down. Now all the Shishiku guys need to find a new school to transfer to, but as luck would have it, the school Hikaru attends, all girl Kotobuki, decided they will become a mixed gender school the following year. As a test they want to take in all the Shishiku students.
