Otome Game Review: Side Kicks!

Oh yea I sure love it when the opening movie features naked 2D mans in the rain! 😂

Our heroine Inori has been randomly falling asleep at random times all her life and when she falls asleep she has foreseeing dreams. They are bits & pieces of what happens in the future so she takes notes and tries to act upon them if she can. In the town of Sakrada, California, there’s a drug war going on with a drug called Lip Code. One day at a diner, Inori has a dream where she sees a truck slam through the window of the cafe by a drugged driver. She warns everyone to move away and after they do, moments later the truck comes smashing through. It turns out the group whose lives she saved are a detective team called “Sidekicks” at the Sakrada Police Department and they recruit her to join them to help solve cases. The one big case they are trying to solve is to catch a serial murderer named “Rain Killer” who is involved with murdering those involved with the Lip Code drug.

Otome Game Review: Collar x Malice

There exists an organization called Adonis which has been responsibile for a several murder cases throughout the year. Each case they have “count down until X-day” in which they plan to “rebuild” Japan. They leave a coin with a cat symbol on it and a roman numeral that indicates the number of months till the count down. The overall theme of each case is revenge. Adonis has decided to become the anonymous justice league that murders those who have hurt others when police refuse to take action. Our heroine, Hoshino Ichika is a regular boring policewoman who doesn’t do more than maybe help find a lost child or take a cat down from a tree.  However one day after work, someone drugs her, knocks her out and when she wakes up she finds her body is paralyzed in a church and she has a collar around her neck. The collar transmits a radio signal through which a voice tells her that she’s been chosen by Adonis to be an “experiment” to prove her sense of justice before X-day happens. If she fails to do so, Adonis will send a signal to release deadly poison through the collar and she will die. Just then a group of guys burst in, and by inputting a code they disable her paralyzation but she cannot remove the collar. They also just so happen to be a bootleg detective agency full of ex-cops (+ half assed secret service member) set up by the leader, Yanagi Aiji, in order to put a stop to X-day that’s set to occur on new year’s day of the following year. Remember big fat spoilers ahead so jump to my final thoughts if you intend to play this game – which has been licensed in English for release in 2017! (`・ω・´)

Otome Game Review: Taisho Alice -all in one-

This is the review for the Vita port of Taisho Alice but there’s actually no differences from the PC game. The Vita port just combines all the disks in one making it an easy seamless playthrough of the the entire story. Our story is about Arisu Yurika who finds herself in various “worlds” where she interacts with a gender swapped fairy tale heroines.  There’s a truth behind the entire game though which I will talk about in my review so as usual, avoid spoilers by jumping to my final thoughts!

Otome Game Review: Kenka Bancho Otome

Nakayama Hinako has lived her entire life at an orphanage, learning combat arts for fun (and self defense.) On her first day of high school, she bumps into her long lost twin brother Hikaru. Of course this is all just as keikaku by Hikaru because as it turns out, the two of them are children of a yakuza family. Hikaru’s father wants him to beat up all the 1st and 2nd year students and become the “bancho” of the school in order to show the pride of the Onigashima family. Unfortunately Hikaru would rather cross dress like a girl, eat ice cream and go shopping. Luckily for him, Hinako can actually kick ass so he blackmails her by pretending to “bump” into her and get hurt. He claims that if she doesn’t crossdress as a boy and go to the Shishiku boys school in his place, he will force her to pay his medical fees. 😂 Hinako doesn’t wanna get the stink eye from the Yakuza and she’s happy she found some form of family so she agrees. She ends up (being forced) to move in to a small apartment with her brother and his manservant Sakaguchi who takes care of the twins meals & transportation (though mostly Hikaru’s.) It doesn’t take long, but Hinako ends up kicking ass of the strongest guys at the school, and gaining a ton of fanboys as she becomes the bancho of Shishiku high. How long will she be able to keep her identity a secret?
