Back at Otomate Party 2015 they announced a game where you get to date NUMBERS. So then we all wondered what kind of story they’d create around personified numbers. Sadly, not much of one, and so we have this grasping-for-straws of a game. Honestly I only bought it because of the character designs by melo but I guess this is the kind of game I finish the kind of crappy year that 2016 was. Reisaki Hiroka’s parents died in a car accident and she’s been living with her guardian Yatsugu for most of her life. One day in her 2nd year of high school, Yatsugu tells her that he’s transferred her to another school where she’ll be living in a dorm. Hiroka’s annoyed because all she wants to do is sleep all day like a snorlax and on the first day of school, she discovers that she has a glowing seal of the “0” number family. Turns out the school she’s been sent to collects the students from the number families and is run by the Ichizono, aka the #1 family and a very powerful family in Japan. Little did she know that she was called in order to revive the 300 year old “Suran Sensou” which was a battle between the ancient number families to decide who would be the leader of the village.
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.
Happy Halloween! I have coincidentally picked a perfect game for the occasion! (＾ω＾) Kashino Zakuro gets an invitation one day to a castle for a 3 AM tea party. She seems like your average girl, but she’s suffering from loneliness and guilt because when she was 12, she lost her twin brother. They were out on a family trip and when the 2 of them went into the woods, a fog appeared and they got separated – the brother to never be seen again. She comes to the castle and meets 5 other guys there who have also been invited. They all wear fancy clothes and act like her butlers because they are told she is now the “Queen”. Everyone goes along with it, but the next day when they try to leave, the fog in the forest leads them right back into the castle. Upon their return the owner of the castle, a creepy demon clown, jumps into Zakuro’s body saying that she is now the new “Sweet Clown”. A Sweet Clown is a demon who grants wishes, but as payment he turns the person who made the wish into a pastry and eats them. Turns out that she’s been chosen as the candidate for his new body and the entire tea party invitation is a ceremony just for that. Unfortunately for the clown, Zakuro has no regrets leaving the outside world nor does she have any personal desires. Due to this, the demon clown cannot fully possess her and on top of this she accidentally makes a self-sacrificial wish and ends up it making it permanently night time and locking every window & door in the castle. So now it’s up to the 5 mans to get Zakuro to desire something in order become the Sweet Clown and let everyone out. As usual skip to my final thoughts to avoid massive spoilers.
