A bunch of dudes on a space ship head to earth to pick up their “Princess Kaguya”. Tsukishima Hikari, is your avg high school girl who’s had weird things happen to her all her life. Her only allies have been her parents who are working overseas, her grandma and her childhood friend Kirara. Hikari moved to her grandmother’s pension and Kirara worried transferred to the same high school. One night they run into a spaceship that crashes in the mountains near her house. Out of it come out a bunch of space princes from various planets, who claim that Hikari is their princess who they came to earth for. 😂 They tell her she’s gotta pick one of them to be her future husband to save the galaxy! Also because their space ship broke, they decide to crash at the pension which conveniently has enough rooms for all of them. They are also joined by a random freeloader and classmate named Kurosaki Tsukasa.
Boy was this a blast from the past – sadly not a good one because a lot of older games weren’t something I had wanted to return to! But anyway, our story takes place when our heroine Sakaki Mio is your average school girl who gets teleported into the afterlife world called Kakuryo. The world is filled with souls of those who are in limbo between life and death which includes both humans and ayakashi. Mio also discovers she has a magical power to be able to see into the hearts of the residents there. She then uses that power to join the nightly patrol crew to help destroy bad ayakashi who try to ruin the “purity” of the world.
Nakayama Hinako has lived her entire life at an orphanage, learning combat arts for fun (and self defense.) On her first day of high school, she bumps into her long lost twin brother Hikaru. Of course this is all just as keikaku by Hikaru because as it turns out, the two of them are children of a yakuza family. Hikaru’s father wants him to beat up all the 1st and 2nd year students and become the “bancho” of the school in order to show the pride of the Onigashima family. Unfortunately Hikaru would rather cross dress like a girl, eat ice cream and go shopping. Luckily for him, Hinako can actually kick ass so he blackmails her by pretending to “bump” into her and get hurt. He claims that if she doesn’t crossdress as a boy and go to the Shishiku boys school in his place, he will force her to pay his medical fees. 😂 Hinako doesn’t wanna get the stink eye from the Yakuza and she’s happy she found some form of family so she agrees. She ends up (being forced) to move in to a small apartment with her brother and his manservant Sakaguchi who takes care of the twins meals & transportation (though mostly Hikaru’s.) It doesn’t take long, but Hinako ends up kicking ass of the strongest guys at the school, and gaining a ton of fanboys as she becomes the bancho of Shishiku high. How long will she be able to keep her identity a secret?
So everyone is probably wondering what the hell this game actually is. Is it a sequel? A fandisk? A remake? Broccoli couldn’t figure this out either so they made it an all in one disaster. The game takes place as if the previous game never happened – it’s one giant reset. The difference is, this time the “main” chunk of the game are the 4 sub characters: Akira, Dionysos, Thor & Melissa. Meanwhile, all the previous gods just get a half assed route similar to the Rainbow route in Utapri All Star. Anyway more complaints in the final thoughts, but for now enjoy the copy pasta that is this game. For anyone who hasn’t played the first game basically Yui is just thrown into god school to teach the gods about humans and love and she just accepts it cause her life on earth has little value apparently.
Amane Aika was told early on to become the best idol there ever was by her parents. Aika was too shy though so her oniichan Manaka said he’ll be an idol for her sake. Fast forward some years later, both of her parents now deceased, it’s the day of Manaka’s idol debut with the idol group Re;Rise. Aika is getting ready to go see her brother’s performance until she suddenly gets a mystery package from him. Inside she finds his clothes and a wig that looks like his hair with a message that says “don’t ask questions, just go impersonate me” Aika is shocked and decides to go to his band dorm house to check on his whereabouts. When she gets there, she runs into one of the members, Itsuki and he says that if she doesn’t do as her brother says, she’ll ruin his idol career. She decides to put on the disguise and act natural around the other members. Unfortunately for her, her brother Manaka was the only sane one in the whole group. The rest of the group members are a bunch of weirdos and it was their leader Manaka (who they call Aika-kun because that was his stage name) who kept them all together. The manager Yonezawa finds out the truth from Aika and he begs her to take her brother’s place for a bit until he returns…or else his intestines will explode from the stress. Aika is shy and worried about interacting with her absurd new group but decides she’ll try her best until her brother returns.
