Emily Whiteley’s parents were killed when she was 4 years old and she was saved by her butler Ralph Pendleton who rescued her from the burning house. He took her to some house in the boonies and raised her along with some other house servants until she turned 16. After solving the mystery of a lost cat for the queen, Emily is given a special crown to be the queen’s official appointed detective – along with Herlock Holmes, the son of the famous Sherlock Holmes. She moves to London and enrolls in a special detective class at the Harrington academy. While she studies to be a better detective, she’s also working on solving the mystery being her parents’ murder – which was written off as a “fire accident” 12 years earlier. This is the PS Vita port of the 2013 PSP game.
Wow was this game certainly a disappointment! If you’re coming with the hopes that it’ll be as great as Karin’s other games, you should just kick dem nasty thoughts and be prepared to omnomnom some copypasta. There was once a woman whose husband passed away and she met a wizard. She begged for him to bring her husband back to life but he said he cannot do that. Instead, he said he’d make her other wish come true and give her a child. He gave her a magic seed and out of the seed came out a little girl who learned how to use magic spells. However on her 15th birthday, the girl Charlotte shrinks to become fun sized and the entire village coins her “Thumbelina”. This is all because the magic spell the magician cast to protect her had wore off. Unfortunately one day the dark knight with his band of angry scissor wielding lizards come and set the village on fire. They demand for the village to hand over Charlotte but her mother and her childhood friend Match Boy, named Lars, are determined to protect her. Unfortunately her mother is killed, and before she dies she tells Charlotte to take the magic book and run for the hills. And so Charlotte and Lars go on an adventure to find out more about who is after her and to see if she can return to being big again.
Mary Crow is a young exorcist and she’s sent to a Japanese priest school from the Vatican to further enhance her studies. I don’t know why the hell anyone would send someone to learn about western religion in an eastern country BUT LET’S ROLL WITH IT! When she comes to Japan she’s given the name Maria, but Maria’s job isn’t just to study. Her job is to help exorcise demons that keep attacking the school, as well as attacking her. Turns out Maria is a demon magnet because she has a cursed blood flowing through her which is a curse that’s been passed through thousands of years in the Crow family lineage. Fortunately the secret of Maria’s exorcism powers are the fact that she has contracted with a demon named Uriel when she was a loli. He’s like her pokemon who will go out, beat up the demons and then eat them as a tasty snack. All Maria ever does is just throw some holy water or smack them with a bible 😆 Unfortunately these little low rank demons are just busywork for Maria who’s now the target of an organization called Hellfire, as they are trying to use her as a sacrifice to summon the great demon Azazel.
A loli named Henrietta lives with her 3 cousins, the Grimm brothers. They all pamper her because when she’s 16 she can marry so they want to enjoy their kawaii desu imouto while they still can (especially the oldest pedobear aniki Jacob.) The 2 oldest brothers leave on a journey to do research to try and make fairy tales come true leaving Henrietta with her youngest brother Ludwig. Little does Henrietta know that her pedobear aniki Jacob wrote a pedobear fairy tale that sadly she is the heroine of and it means getting a happy end with every character, including princesses and bad guys 😆 One night Henrietta chases a butterfly into the forest, only be caught by a pedobear incubus who tells her to come with him to a circus. Henrietta protests and the dude gets pissed and attacks her but just in time her shota cousin Ludwig comes to her rescue. The two of them fight using summoning magic from their brothers’ magic books. Henrietta summons some angry vegetables which sadly doesn’t really work and then the guy puts a sleeping spell on both her and Ludwig. When they both wake up in a coffin, they’re 5 years older with hair down to the ground (and for some reason butt naked!) They realize they’re in their older brother’s abandoned research room, and they look through Wilhelm’s diary where he talks about special keys and Ludwig finds he has one himself. They use the key to get out of the lab but when they go back to town, they find it completely destroyed along with their house. The Incubus who attacked them 5 years earlier shows up laughing at them saying they’ll die trying to survive in the real world, and then disappears. Ludwig & Henrietta then decide they will go looking for their brothers together as they leave the ruins of their village and gather their awesome RPG party of fairy tale characters.
