In my continuation of Operahouses’s kusoge ports, I’ve finally crawled through (at snail speed) the Charming Empire. As usual, there’s an English version available on Steam but I played the Vita port with some new derpy CGs and bonus scenarios. An empire princess named Kousaka Amane has been living her whole life in the boonies with grandma and grandpa. One day her emperor oniichan orders her to be taken to his European style mansion (in the Taisho era 😂) where she will be forced to learn the ways of royalty so she can become a fit wife and queen. When Amane begs grandma and grandpa to save her they just look away and wave goodbye 😂😂. She gets bored of this shitty life of being locked up studying in her room all day so she finds a hidden exit to outside the mansion and uses it to run into town and meet some hot taisho ikemans.

At last Otomate released a fandisk for Ninkoi. Yes apparently THIS is the fandisk while the last game was a PORT with new characters/new scenes. That said it’s been SO LONG since I played/was into ninkoi that by now my passion for the series was rather underwhelming. I think had they released this sooner (perhaps at the time when they released the port?) I might have had a bit more excitement. The fandisk features an after story of Kaede and her man graduating, joining Sanada Yuushitai and getting married. Anyway brief review as after all, it’s mostly character fanservice.
This is the fandisk to Taisho Alice, and because some of it is more like another point of view, it contains some spoilers from the first game so caution to anyone reading.
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・´)
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!
