This is the fandisk to Meiji Tokyo Renka that came out back in 2015 on PSP but I never got to play until now – after Mages ported it into their mobile app and allowed me to play it for free!
Ayazuki Mei is a gluttonous high school teenager who runs into some do-M wacko named Charlie at a magic show at her local summer festival. Charlie throws her into his magic box and when she comes out, she finds herself thrown back in time into the Meiji era! They’re both hungry so they sneak into a fancy Rokumeikan building but instead of roast beef, they run into famous Meiji era historical figures! So now Mei gets to choose which historical bishie she gets to snag, while dealing with the fact that she’s completely lost all memories of her present time self. On top of this, she magically gains tamayori powers and can see dead people.
01/30/2020 – I’ve updated it to add Iwasaki Tosuke’s route from the Vita port/mobile game. Original review was from 2014.
So I kept seeing the Meikoi twitter retweeting all these new CGs and my curiosity got the best of me so I downloaded their new app. Update: This app will end service on July 31, 2020.
Our heroine Yamada Oscar was given a weeb name by her otaku (and famous actress) mom whose favorite shoujo manga was Rose of Versailles. 😂 Like her mom, she’s also a huge otaku, but she likes a manga called RomaKoi where her favorite dude is Hikaru-sama who she has plastered all over her bedroom. She goes to a famous acting school but there’s a caste system where you have both the rich and the “normal” students attending. Needless to say there’s a huge divide between the two. Because Oscar is great at remembering lines after only reading them once, she gets scouted to join a newly formed acting club called Lumiere. Lumiere was formed by Maki Nozomi, a former member of another theatre group called Soleil. The teacher who leads Soleil, keeps trying to sabotage Lumiere so it’s up to Oscar, and Lumiere to ward off the attempts and win the upcoming acting competition to prove they are a real club who can stand out on their own.
