Our heroine Olympia, real name Byakuya, just turned 18 and has to find a husband to procreate with. Real summary after the jump cause it has spoilers. Warning: This game contains normalized misogyny and violence against women.
Continuing the trend of “games that take place in America” this time instead of fake LA, Extend brings us my ultimate favorite of FAKE NYC! 😂 Our story involves a newspaper column writer Teuta, who is trying to make it big as a news reporter. She chases down an infamous defense lawyer named Limbo Fitzgerald to try to to get an interview with him but instead he drops dead in front of her eyes after being stabbed by a hitman. Teuta then uses her magical powers of being able to jump back to the past into a random person’s body and warns Limbo of his fate thereby saving his life. After she returns to her present body she meets up with him and his partner Shu at the local hipster cafe and they have trouble believing her not ruling out that she may be tricking them or be in cahoots with the criminals. They strike a deal that until they figure out whodunnit, she has to hang out with them, and in return, Limbo promises to be her housing lawyer to help her break her lease and move out. 😂 Please note there ARE SPOILERS below the jump so if you plan to play just scroll down to my final thoughts!
Akari has been living alone most of her life due to being an orphan. One day during a solar eclipse, she’s sucked into another world called Shangrila where it’s eternally night and no signs of daylight. The elders find out and say she’s the “Liar Moon” from the prophecy who will save Shangrila and return the daylight to them. Unfortunately nobody actually knows how to do this… except Fenrir and his brothers who know that in order to get the sun back, the Liar Moon has to sacrifice her life. And as fate would have it, Fenrir is the first person Akari runs into and becomes friendly with. Additionally, Akari also has the powers to see people’s past simply by looking at the reflection of the moon in a body of water. This leads her to discover the truth about everything in Shangrila.

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.
