Hotori is your average high school student – except that she has 1 month left until her death. Two shinigami are sent down to earth have 1 month to watch over her and make sure she has no regrets left so she can descend into the after life. The two shinigami are Zen and Rikka, and if their mission succeeds, they will get a get out of hell free coupon to be reborn again. If they fail, they will be stuck doing shinigami work for all of eternity. Hotori starts to think about how to live her life to the fullest in the remaining time she has left, and one of the things on her bucket list is to confess to her crush Shizuru. Warning, this review ain’t gonna be pretty so if you thought the game was the best thing ever, reading past the jump may crush your hopes and dreams. 😂 Continue reading “Otome Game Review: Un:Birthday Song -Koi wo Utau Shinigami- Another Record”
Happy new year everyone, unfortunately my first review of the year is off to a not so great start. (;´･ω･) This is the fandisk to Ayakashi Gohan which I finished recently, but unfortunately it was very disappointing and not what I had in mind when I think of “fandisks” in general. The game takes place after the plot resolution (?) in the first game and focuses on Rin’s senior year of high school and her path to going to college and growing up.

Akane Rin’s father died when she was little and so her mother became a prostitute to try to make a living to support them. Rin never understood this because she was too young but due to this she had no friends and a lot of kids/parents spread rumors about her. One day her paternal grandma Sumi took her back to her place where she lives in a village called Momiji that is filled with ayakashi. Rin didn’t really like them and after spending a month there she ended up returning back to her house. 10 years later, her mother died probably from being killed by one of her customers but Rin never knew why. She never cried during the funeral and she’s been living on whatever money her mom left while going to school. One of the ayakashi, Gin, who she met when she was little comes to visit her and asks if she wants to come back and live with him and the other Ayakashi at the village she went to in the past. He said that he’s running a restaurant there and she gets free food as well as a place to live. Rin figures she doesn’t wanna deal with any burden of her mother’s leftovers and is running out of money for paying bills…so she decides to leave everything behind and join Gin and other ayakashi at Ponpokorin restaurant.
Our heroine Kokoro gets taken to the Netherworld by some grandpa owl who tells her she will now be enrolling in a school to become a shinigami. Netherworld is a place that souls go to if they have regrets from their past lives and cannot transcend into the afterlife. Unfortunately Kokoro isn’t the brightest bulb on the tree and she ends up getting a 2 on her exam – successfully FAILING to get a shinigami partner. Because of this she’s placed into a “special” learning group for all the other failures. Unlike most shinigami there, Kokoro has no memories of her past life, how she died, and what regrets brought her to the Netherworld.
