So because recently there was an announcement for an Idolish 7 anime, I decided to step foot into mobile idol game black hole. 😂 Unfortunately the I7 music game made me nauseated and none of the character interactions really drew me in. Someone on twitter suggested I try out Yumeiro Cast which has individual romance scenarios with all the guys + heroine and a more simplified music game. I was drawn in by the music game, the romance scenarios and the artwork courtesey of Fifs, the artist who worked on Prince of Stride!
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.
Sakurai Nana is a farm girl from Hokkaido who transfers to Hounan high school in order to join the Stride team. She got inspired after seeing some youtube video called “best stride ever.mp4” (which btw on real youtube has nothing to do with this game). After transferring, she finds out the club’s inactive due to loss of members, because of some violence incident. Nana is determined to get the club running, so she helps recruit 2 more members and the 5 man stride team + relay-tioner Nana is complete. A “relay-tioner” role is that of someone who guides the striders during their runs so they can meet up with tag their other team members. The stride relay race takes place in various locations such as cities and even amusement parks, and they basically run parkour style throughout, jumping over various obstacles such as fences, cats, and elderly grandmothers to reach the goal. Aside from being their guide, Nana also gives them magical otome powers in order to GIVE THEM THE COURAGE TO BE THE VERY BEST.
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.

Mihara Suzu is your average high school girl who lives with her adopted childhood friend Kanade. One day she finds out one of her classmates is missing and Kanade suggests he might have gotten “possessed”. A possessed person usually becomes violent and starts attacking people like he’s got a bad case of rabies. The next day they find that the missing student has been murdered and nailed to the giant clock in the park. While detectives are going around trying to solve the mystery, Suzu starts to stumble upon some mysterious tarot cards that only she can see. When her friend Matsuri gets possessed, Suzu realizes she can use these cards to turn people back to normal. With this in mind and the fact that everyone is blaming Kanade for the murder, Suzu decides to take matters into her own hands to get to the bottom of things.
