Otome Game Review: Re: Birthday Song ~Koi wo Utau Shinigami~

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.

Otome Game Review: S.Y.K. ~Renshouden~

And so this is the SYK fandisk. I was intending to play the PSP version for the omakes but since it decided to crash on me everytime I wanted to skip the damn opening movie I decided to play the PS2 version instead! The game contains after stories for the whole cast as well as some side stories for the heaven dudes.

Otome Game Review: S.Y.K. ~Shinsetsu Saiyuki~

Since Otomate decided to do a game based off Houshin Engi, I figured now would be a good time to get this out of my backlog. This is basically Otomate’s spin on a Journey to the West.  Since this is the Japanese version though, it’s actually quite similar to this, but instead Genjou Sanzou this time is our HEROINE,  who gathers her group of good looking idiots to go on an epic adventure to Tenjiku to save the world!

Otome Game Review: Kago no Naka no Alicis

And so after Bloody Call, Icing Candy has released their 2nd game. The artwork is slightly different but the premise is a lot brighter and has a more otome feel to it than the dark feeling of BC. The story here is about a kingdom named Ruche that is directly connected with the Tree of Gemut. A long time ago the gods left the kingdom and the tree began to wilt. One day a girl shed some tears and it helped the tree revive. This girl decided that she would pour all her feelings into this tree to save the kingdom so she was locked up in this cage while she provided life energy for the tree. One day she fell in love with a man and her feelings began to go towards him instead of the tree. The Gemut tree began to wilt once more and so the man she was in love with decided to free her from the cage. Unfortunately upon doing this, the girl immediately died. The man was so heartbroken that his feelings of rage caused darkness to create an evil aura and so he created his own kingdom of Noir. Usually the Ruche kingdom has daylight 24/7 but when Noir strikes it becomes suddenly dark 😆 Because Noir causes damage to the Tree of Gamut, now Ruche is looking for a new “Alicis” who will use their life energy to basically keep the tree going! So much for the “white” kingdom being good eh? So now one day a girl named Sumeragi Runa is abducted from Japan by a loli & shota named L & M who tell her that she has to be the next Alicis.
