So I was looking forward to the DareUra fandisk for a while and I even followed Amedeo’s progress on the game via their blogs and twitters. I may have mistakenly overhyped the game for myself because sadly it did not live up to my expectations. I tried to ignore all the bad reviews for it until I tried for myself but sadly they were right. Anyway more on that in my final thoughts. The story this time starts with a prologue to remind you of the cast from the first game (in case you forgot) and instead they add this flaming okama broadcaster who wants to make either Nanako the “princess”. He then wastes about 4 hours of your life interviewing all the eligible mans and making homo jokes while I almost fell asleep on my couch. Finally you pick either student or teacher route and depending on the choices you can end up with your man of choice. In this disk they added Oda, who was a fat otaku, is now a skinny bishounen otaku (after much plastic surgery) and a yandere chef. Sadly that also means they kicked out the 2 DECENT characters from the first game: Haru & Lee 😐 Sigh what a shame.
The game has 2 “routes”. Either teacher route or student route. Obviously if you’re a student it’s the typical otome high school story, but if you’re the teacher you got young boys hitting on you 😆 But anyway…I started out with the student route, Nanako since I figured I’d get the stereotypical story out of the way first. In addition, the 2 characters Momoe and Nanako are also sisters so while doing Nanako’s route I also got to interact with Momoe since they live in the same house and are in the same school. Nanako’s best friend also has a thing for 40 year old men, despite being a high school girl which is pretty creepy. I swear to god someone at AMEDEO has a jiji moe. That’s why they had Yuka end up with that old geezer in Pet Detective Y’s!! 😆 Momoe’s “friend” is just the gym teacher lady, but I’d say it’s more of a co-worker relationship than anything. Anyway on with the usual story/spoilers. Continue reading “Otome Game Review: Dare ni Demo Ura ga Aru”
