Lied, an orphan whose parents supposedly died in an accident, has recently began to live on her own (with her cockatiel ojisan BFF Soprano who can talk due to all the magic of her town of Shall). She is also a pianist for her former orphanage but she’s not really that good. Actually she really sucks at both playing piano and cooking lol. One day she meets a bunch of dudes who happen to have the magical “Falga” powers of famous classical pianists. An evil force called the Forgotten Apostle comes and tries to steal all the sound from the town because of the “evil noise” that’s coming from the darkness inside the performers. Most average people are affected but Lied is safe – so now she joins the musical academy to work with everyone to help restore music back to Shall and defeat the Forgotten Apostle.

Well this was certainly not your “average idol game”. Fujisaki Futaba works at the James company and the president Lily chooses her to become the new idol manager for the group Fortissimo. Futaba is a country bumpkin with no style or experience so thanks to hurls of insults from bratty underage teens and her strict boss, she ~blooms~ into a Cinderella.

I didn’t expect this game to end up like the dumpster fire that it did, but here I am. It’s year 1930, our heroine Kozuki Elena moves to Yokohama from Kanagawa to enroll in a Christian all girls school paid for by a mystery doner. Her parents have both died and her mother was Russian so Elena is only half Japanese. She’s uncomfortable around men and when she moves in to town she finds out about various murders that have been happening recently. As the days pass, Elena starts to get targeted by blood craving zombies and her school friends get killed. She finds out the reason spans to her family’s past and so along with her showa ikemans, she decides to uncover the truth.
At last Otomate released a fandisk for Ninkoi. Yes apparently THIS is the fandisk while the last game was a PORT with new characters/new scenes. That said it’s been SO LONG since I played/was into ninkoi that by now my passion for the series was rather underwhelming. I think had they released this sooner (perhaps at the time when they released the port?) I might have had a bit more excitement. The fandisk features an after story of Kaede and her man graduating, joining Sanada Yuushitai and getting married. Anyway brief review as after all, it’s mostly character fanservice.
There exists an organization called Adonis which has been responsibile for a several murder cases throughout the year. Each case they have “count down until X-day” in which they plan to “rebuild” Japan. They leave a coin with a cat symbol on it and a roman numeral that indicates the number of months till the count down. The overall theme of each case is revenge. Adonis has decided to become the anonymous justice league that murders those who have hurt others when police refuse to take action. Our heroine, Hoshino Ichika is a regular boring policewoman who doesn’t do more than maybe help find a lost child or take a cat down from a tree. However one day after work, someone drugs her, knocks her out and when she wakes up she finds her body is paralyzed in a church and she has a collar around her neck. The collar transmits a radio signal through which a voice tells her that she’s been chosen by Adonis to be an “experiment” to prove her sense of justice before X-day happens. If she fails to do so, Adonis will send a signal to release deadly poison through the collar and she will die. Just then a group of guys burst in, and by inputting a code they disable her paralyzation but she cannot remove the collar. They also just so happen to be a bootleg detective agency full of ex-cops (+ half assed secret service member) set up by the leader, Yanagi Aiji, in order to put a stop to X-day that’s set to occur on new year’s day of the following year. Remember big fat spoilers ahead so jump to my final thoughts if you intend to play this game – which has been licensed in English for release in 2017! (｀・ω・´)
