Galge Review: Himawari -Pebble in the Sky-

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.

Otome Game Review: Moshi, Kono Sekai ni Kamisama ga Iru to Suru Naraba.

Title sounds like a light novel mouthful which means “If there is a god in this world then…” The title itself is pretty ironic at the things that go down in the story but that was probably Rejet’s intention. The story starts when Kurumi Haruka, a lonely high school girl is forced to be part of the school field trip committee with 4 guys. All 5 of them receive letters one day from “themselves” that have a strange “wish” written on it. None of them have any idea what’s going on until a series of strange incidents begin happening around them. To find the true plot of the game, massive spoilers after the jump. If you plan to play this I suggest just skipping to my final thoughts at the bottom. If you do decide to read the spoilers, be warned, this isn’t for the faint of heart. Also warning: lots of text walls. Continue reading “Otome Game Review: Moshi, Kono Sekai ni Kamisama ga Iru to Suru Naraba.”

Otome Game Review: Rakuen Danshi ~Beast Harem~

I started this game almost 2 years ago but due to delays/lack of interest in games the last few months, I decided to just finish it again. At the time I had only done 80% of Yukito’s route but once I got through it, the rest was mostly a skip-a-thon so I was able to get through the game faster than expected. And so here we are, a game based on a really trashy Shoujo Manga. When I say trashy I mean like Shinjo Mayu near porno levels 😆 I bought the 3 volumes on Amazon Kindle out of curiosity and was surprised Takuyo would even make a game based on something like this. Anyway more on that in my final thoughts. Our story is about Kanzaki Asuna, who moves back to her old hometown to stay with her cousin Yukito. Her dad is an engineer and tells her he’s off on a 2 year business trip with Yukito’s dad telling her to do well on her own! She figures things are ok since she’s got Yukito by her side but turns out that the school she’s going to transfer to was once an all boys school. They only started allowing girls in as of this year and since Asuna is a 2nd year student, she’s the only female sophomore in her grade. From here on Asuna’s bishie harem adventures begin!

Otome Game Review: Hanasaku Mani Mani

Wow this game was…something else but more on that in my final thoughts. ಠ_ಠ Our heroine Mochizuki Nao is blasted to the past of the Edo era at the bakumatsu period when they’re about to overthrow the shogun. She gets picked up by a historical bishie who brings her to Manjiya, a prostitute house where the geiko ladies can service men but without having to actually spread their legs. Guess it must be a high class one. \(^o^)/ Even though she starts working in the back, all the guys there suggest she start working “in the front” to service all the male customers instead. Without any second thoughts, Nao’s like SURE THANG and so begin her exciting adventures in semi-prostitution. Warning: Terrible writing and landmine tropes ahead!
