Because I liked the story idea in Taisho Alice, and there was a huge psn sale, I decided to pick up the vita port for Oretsuba – game I’ve been meaning to play for a while. I had seen the anime a while ago and thought it was really funny so I figured the game would be the same. Unfortunately while the game does have its jokes, it ends up dragging scenes on but despite this, it has a solid story. Anyway spoilers ahead so if you plan to play this, be sure to jump to my final thoughts. Our story features 3 protagonists – Haneda Takashi, Chitose Shusuke and Narita Hayato.
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.
I didn’t realize it’s actually been 2 years since I finished Code Realize since the English version actually only came out a year ago. Due to this I was a bit rusty on what happened but fortunately the after stories gave a brief review of what happened in case people like me forgot. The FD also adds an original mafia gang story as well as routes for Finis and Sholmes (which take place as if they were in the first game’s story.) The final section is a little bit of time Cardia spends with Dela-chan’s daily activities.
Otomate figured since Beastmaster & Prince was popular they’d do a spinoff game to rake in those yens. Unfortunately, tacked on with a poor new mofumofu system and a very poor excuse for content, the game ended up being an exquisite waste of time. Review shouldn’t be too long since well not much happened at all! Our heroine Julia is a princess who lives in a castle by herself her whole life with her 4 animal pets a dog Ludwik, canary Mias, horse Ryszard, and bear Jozef. She’s been locked in there by her parents but somehow managed to stash in 4 decently sized animals. 😂 One day her cousin Henryk comes to her telling her that his dad, aka her uncle, has killed both of her parents so now she’s free to leave the tower. Julia realizes she can’t keep her animals anymore so she says goodbye – until her uncle bursts in threatening to kill her too. Suddenly Ryszard flips Julia on his back and horseback rides her and the other animals into the woods away from the castle. When they get to the woods she pulls out a pouch her father left her in case of “emergency”. When she opens it, she finds some rainbow colored fairy dust and when it accidentally falls on all of her animal friends, they turn into 4 ikemans! Julia and her band of hot dudes make their escape to the town of Piskis where they take upon various jobs to support their new life.
Boy was this a blast from the past – sadly not a good one because a lot of older games weren’t something I had wanted to return to! But anyway, our story takes place when our heroine Sakaki Mio is your average school girl who gets teleported into the afterlife world called Kakuryo. The world is filled with souls of those who are in limbo between life and death which includes both humans and ayakashi. Mio also discovers she has a magical power to be able to see into the hearts of the residents there. She then uses that power to join the nightly patrol crew to help destroy bad ayakashi who try to ruin the “purity” of the world.
