I don’t know what I was smoking when I decided to order this game (and Charming empire) for double the price instead of just buying the steam English version on a Steam sale….but I did and here I am with all sorts of regrets. So this will be an Opera House kusoge double feature (or maybe more than a double feature if my backlog is anything to do by.) 😩 Ishizumi Akane is your average high school girl who transfers to a new school. One day when she forgot her notes she returns to the school building at night only to stumble upon an illegal host club being run inside. Turns out the students & teachers all run an secret host club that begins at midnight, with underage students being hosts & serving alcohol. This is all done so that the students can make connections before they go out into the working world…but because it’s extremely illegal, Akane is now forced to work there to make sure she keeps her mouth shut. So now every night Akane is forced to slave away being a maid at this shitty host club until she graduates. 😱
It’s a miracle this FD was released because it finally contained the content I wanted to see in…the last one. 😂 Most of the contents of the FD takes place with Cardia’s poison gone except for Sholmes and Cantarella routes. And now on to the fangirling (and emoji spam lol)!
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.
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.
There exists an organization called Adonis which has been responsibile for a several murder cases throughout the year. Each case they have “count down until X-day” in which they plan to “rebuild” Japan. They leave a coin with a cat symbol on it and a roman numeral that indicates the number of months till the count down. The overall theme of each case is revenge. Adonis has decided to become the anonymous justice league that murders those who have hurt others when police refuse to take action. Our heroine, Hoshino Ichika is a regular boring policewoman who doesn’t do more than maybe help find a lost child or take a cat down from a tree. However one day after work, someone drugs her, knocks her out and when she wakes up she finds her body is paralyzed in a church and she has a collar around her neck. The collar transmits a radio signal through which a voice tells her that she’s been chosen by Adonis to be an “experiment” to prove her sense of justice before X-day happens. If she fails to do so, Adonis will send a signal to release deadly poison through the collar and she will die. Just then a group of guys burst in, and by inputting a code they disable her paralyzation but she cannot remove the collar. They also just so happen to be a bootleg detective agency full of ex-cops (+ half assed secret service member) set up by the leader, Yanagi Aiji, in order to put a stop to X-day that’s set to occur on new year’s day of the following year. Remember big fat spoilers ahead so jump to my final thoughts if you intend to play this game – which has been licensed in English for release in 2017! (｀・ω・´)
