Otome Game Review: Kyoukai no Shirayuki

Akagami Mashiro climbed & fell off a pomegranate tree when she was younger but miraculously awakened. Now many years later, she’s attending university while she works part time job at an ice cream store. She goes to a mirror exhibit at a museum with her friend Ataru and the mirror on the wall talks to her bringing her to an “Insanity World” filled with various mirrors. The voice in the mirror then says that Mashiro is the “Snow White” who has to save one of her “dwarves” and based on the mirror she chooses, it will decide who the one being saved will be. Nonsensical intro because the truth is in the spoilers so skip those and jump to my final thoughts if you don’t want to see!

Otome Game Review: Kamigami no Asobi -Infinite-

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.

Guest Review: Norn9 Var Commons

Greetings again, buta-ettes!  Oink if ya hear me! (::deafening grunts split the earth asunder and blot out the sun::).  Today we will be reviewing Norn9 (and unfortunately this is the all ages version, not the R18 version Norn69), and trigger warning here but…it kinda sucked.  I’ll also toss in an overall spoiler warning in here because while I won’t be doing summaries of the routes, I will be discussing plot points in a spoiler way in order to complain about them.

Otome Game Review: Clock Zero ~Shuuen no Ichibyou~ Ex Time

This was originally a review of the PS2 game, but due to me getting the Vita port I realized I had a lot of changes to make. One reason is I played the game 5 years ago and my Japanese improved a lot since then. A lot of stuff made more sense to me so instead of just making a bunch of edits everywhere I decided to just heavily rewrite the entire review. Parts of it are salvaged from my PS2 review but there’s a lot of new stuff added, adjusted as well as the fact that I’ve gone through & posted a summary of ALL 34 ENDINGS! \(^o^)/ The story is about a 12 year old girl Kurou Nadeshiko, who is a rich ojousama attending school with her childhood friend Riichiro. Ever since the transfer student Kaido Takato comes to her class, she seems to have dreams about being in another world every night. The world is a distorted and in ruins and she herself appears 10 years older. Kaga Akira sensei brings Nadeshiko, Takato, Riichiro and 4 other guys to do extra assignments after school. As the kids do these after school assignments, they call themselves team “Clock Zero”.
