I bought this game because it had surprisingly high reviews BUT I guess I am on the side of the few non-high reviews in there because all the flaws mentioned in the bad reviews stuck out like a sore thumb to me. The game basically suffers from the Norn9 syndrome of too many characters and because they are not all fully fleshed out it felt like an unfinished game to me. Anyway more on this in my final thoughts, first the summary which WILL contain spoilers so if you do plan to play the game as some point I suggest skipping it. But in some way, maybe getting spoiled in advance might game strangely more interesting to play 🤔 lol. The story takes place in the future where the entire country is very technologically advanced. Everyone wears these special bracelets that do basic things like help them heal mentally and physically and are basically an identity that’s connected to a huge government information system for every identifiable person. Think of Social Security Numbers but futuristic & digital (～￣∇)～. Our heroine Sena Hiyori is attending school with her childhood friend and hears word of these “Other World Program” which everyone watches and everyone talks about VR games that feel incredibly realistic. All of a sudden Hiyori finds herself sucked into a VR game by a stranger with a mask on. Not realizing it’s VR she thinks she’s been abducted to a different world, and the world has 1 rule: You must act in a drama and read the given lines or else face a penalty. The penalty varies from taking away your arm, your voice, to taking away your memories. If your drama points fall into the negative, you will face death. Paired with her childhood friend and 8 other guys, Hiyori must act out all the dramas, no matter how gruesome the script is.
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.
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.
Kusanagi Yui is your average high school girl living with her family who owns a shrine. One day she finds some magical sword at the shrine and before she knows it, she’s teleported into a miniature garden created by a bored Zeus. The mini garden contains a high school and not only is she to attend it, but her fellow classmates are Greek, Norse, Japanese and Egyptian gods (whose powers have all been restricted by Zeus)! Her job is to now attend school with these other gods and teach them about HUMAN EMOTIONS such as LOVE! Unfortunately, our heroine is completely inexperienced in the love department, but those who disobey Zeus’ orders get a lightning bolt to the butt.
Our hero Ibuki Ryunosuke is on the brink of death until he’s found by Serizawa, the current leader of the Shinsengumi (prior to Kondo) who says to come with him. Ryunosuke is so out of it that after eating a riceball from Serizawa he starts hearing his mom’s voices in his head calling him a pathetic loser and that he’s shaming his dead father and ancestors from 1000 years! Ryunosuke decides he values his life so he decides to come along and ends up being Serizawa’s manbitch as he hangs out with some historical bishies.
