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!

Hanamaki Ichiko attends university with her childhood friend Hino who joined a “Okunezato Occult Club”. The club leader posts on a forum for everyone to have an offline meetup at the Okunezato and Hino invites Ichiko to come with him to check it out. Ichiko’s older brother Hanate disappeared a year ago after going to the village so she decides to come along in hopes to find clues on his whereabouts. Little does Ichiko know that this isn’t her first trip to Okunezato as well as the dangers and mysteries surrounding the small mountain town. Once she and Hino arrive at the Furinkan inn, they meet up with the rest of the members. After Ichiko takes a part time job at the inn during her stay, she starts to recall memories of her childhood. Major spoilers ahead so please skip to my final thoughts to avoid as usual.
Wow this game took longer than I expected – but mostly because it collided with a new FF14 patch (but honestly what else is new with me?) The story is about our heroine Misaki who with her classmate Kokoro finds a stray kitten near the school grounds. While carrying the kitten home, she bumps into the manager of Prince Pia Carrot – a family restaurant full of ikeman waiters (on a trial period because all the other pia carrots are full of eroge ladies.) The kitten jumps on him breaking all the dishes he bought for the restaurant. Misaki feels bad and to take responsibility, she decides to work there part time along with Kokoro. Her school’s student council pres & vice pres are also on the waiter team and from here Misaki’s restaurant adventures begin.

Poor Ayumu just wants to tell her new oniichan, that she’s not his little brother, but his little sister. On the first day of school, Rikuto realizes that Ayumu is the “girl” he fell in love at first sight with during the entrance exam results announcements.
