It’s been a while, but after suffering through a streak of otome kusoge I decided to play a galge! The good news is, like most galge I’ve been lucky to play, the story was pretty good. The bad news is, there’s no truly happy ending except maybe for one of the girls. And the better news is, this game is available to buy from Manga Gamer in English in December! Anyway on to the review, and remember spoilers ahead so be sure to skip to my final thoughts if you plan to play it. Our story is about Hinata Yoichi, the lone survivor of a space plane SA-DANO80 that exploded on its launch day. He has since lost his memories and has been living alone funded by the Saionji group – the group whose plane exploded and took responsibility. One night he hears a crash near the sight of where that space plane crashed and he finds a UFO pod with a random girl inside. The girl appears to also have amnesia and so Yoichi lets her stay in his house while he tries to figure who or what she is.
Otomate figured since Beastmaster & Prince was popular they’d do a spinoff game to rake in those yens. Unfortunately, tacked on with a poor new mofumofu system and a very poor excuse for content, the game ended up being an exquisite waste of time. Review shouldn’t be too long since well not much happened at all! Our heroine Julia is a princess who lives in a castle by herself her whole life with her 4 animal pets a dog Ludwik, canary Mias, horse Ryszard, and bear Jozef. She’s been locked in there by her parents but somehow managed to stash in 4 decently sized animals. 😂 One day her cousin Henryk comes to her telling her that his dad, aka her uncle, has killed both of her parents so now she’s free to leave the tower. Julia realizes she can’t keep her animals anymore so she says goodbye – until her uncle bursts in threatening to kill her too. Suddenly Ryszard flips Julia on his back and horseback rides her and the other animals into the woods away from the castle. When they get to the woods she pulls out a pouch her father left her in case of “emergency”. When she opens it, she finds some rainbow colored fairy dust and when it accidentally falls on all of her animal friends, they turn into 4 ikemans! Julia and her band of hot dudes make their escape to the town of Piskis where they take upon various jobs to support their new life.
It’s 50 years into the future, in the country of Cloud. Cloud’s been plagued with a massive drug war on the drug called “Star” and has been ignored by other countries to help stop the spread. The drug, like any drug, has destroyed families and caused gang wars and mass murders. In order to combat the ongoing problem of both dealers and drug abusers (coined as “Stardust”), a team of “Angels” has been formed. These angels go around trying to capture and rehabilitate the drug abusers in order to help get to the root of the problem, and to put an end to the drug war. Our heroine, Sorano Fuu got involved in the drug war because her parents became dealers in order to support the family. Due to getting in a spat with another dealer, Fuu’s parents were killed when she was 7 years old. She was rescued by a pair of Angels and decided to then grow up and enroll in a special academy to become an Angel herself. Now 13 years later, Fuu is 20 and has graduated from the academy. She’s put in a team with 4 other Angels, Yun, Mict, Tchicai and Rayla and the leader Izuki, going on missions to try to find and capture the drug abusers in the town of Akatsuki. During the time spent with her team mates, she discovers more about their pasts with connections to her own. Lots of spoilery text ahead so skip to final thoughts to avoid as usual!
It’s year 2999, and the residents of Albion live in a town which is towered by a large yggdrasil tree with a giant sand clock embedded into it. This sandclock determines humanity’s time and if not flipped properly every 1000 years, humanity will disappear! In order to keep the time flowing, a “BANK” collects everyone’s time and those who do not deposit it eventually get turned into time sand. Our heroine Lucia runs a cafe called Cocono Cocono and is the owner of a small sand clock that resembles the one embedded in the yggdrasil tree. One day the bank informs everyone that an organization called “Baroque” has raided the time bank and stolen all the time. Due to this, there’s only 99 days left until the world ends. Immediate spoilers following the cut!
This took way longer than it should have because my otome gaming motivation got run over by a steamroller called FFXIV 😆 Didn’t help that this game is just really really mediocre and I really wanna punch myself for wasting time with any Quin Rose fandisks ( ´_ゝ｀). Anyway the story takes place after Shiori graduates and now she has a month before she starts college. Unfortunately the school gets slammed with an investigation and instead of spending her spring break having fun, she has to spend her spring break making sure nothing weird happens so that their school isn’t shut down. Also to add salt to the wound, aside from Itsuki and Shinya, all the relationship statuses with the rest have been reset. The only real new route here is the student council pres, Naezono Ouji.
