Happy Halloween! Natalie Taylor is your average 17 year old high school girl…in NEW YORK CITY YEAAAA! So since this game takes place in my city, it was a must play on my list. ＼( ^o^)／ Natalie’s mom LIZ Taylor is a ho who runs around bars and gets with random ikemens. Liz’s bff is a super flaming fashion designer Charles and her father is a rich corporate douchebag who steals money from other companies! Poor Natalie is stuck between 2 relatives neither of who really give a crap about her. Deciding she wants to be more independent, she works many part time jobs but it’s just not enough. She then jumps on a bandwagon to join a group of guys who have a plan to earn $30 million and split between the 6 of them (+7th guy who joins in at a later time.) All the guys in this group have various reasons for why they need the money and they call themselves CM7 ( Confidential Money + 7 people. ) Unfortunately for Natalie, their plan involves stealing money from her douchebag grandpa on the 4th of July.
So remember the good ol’ tale of the 3 Musketeers? Otomate came up with a BRILLIANT idea using the concept “what if D’Artagnan was a WOMAN and instead of being bffs with the 3 musketeers she got to hit dat sheit?” And so Musketeer was born! Our story starts when our heroine named D’Artagnan, (which I’m seriously shortening to Darty cause I’m not about to type that name out over & over in this post) is sent out to town to do some errands by her father. When she returns, some evil Gargoyle demon is attacking her father but being fragile & womanly all she can do is watch in horror as her father gets killed. Suddenly a hot dude shows up telling her that he was her father’s former pupil at the Chevalier school. He tells her that if she goes there she’ll find out the reason why her father was killed and will be able to train to get stronger! D’Artagnan decides it’s a good idea and decides to enroll there. She trains with the teachers on sword fighting and while there runs into the 3 most popular mans at the school: the 3 Musketeers. However, there’s a rule that if someone challenges you to a duel and you accept, the loser must swear loyalty to the opponent.
So while the opening does feel like a ripoff Cowboy Bebop and the game feels like Bloody Call meets Bleach I still enjoyed it immensely. If you like Bloody Call then I definitely recommend this. Man it’s been a while since I played an otome game with an actual decent story lol. The story is about a girl who was abandoned as a baby at a church by her mother who was hurt and killed. She was raised by the priest there not knowing who her parents are and was raised along side of a boy whose family was killed by some mafia. They were raised like brother and sister to be priest and nun. A few years later on one day the mafia randomly attacked the church and the boy, Joshua, took the girl Amelia and ran away. They encounter a man named Jean who takes them to a large house. Spoilers beyond this point. Skip to my final thoughts if you don’t want to read them!
