Welp this is the fandisk to Shiro to Kuro no Alice. It wasn’t good, so this will be a brief review.
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. 😱
Our story centers around 2 twin sisters, Airi and Luna. Luna lives in the Black World ruling over it as the queen while Airi lives in the White World, aka on earth, where she’s your average boring high school girl. Due to Luna unable to contain her “Alice” powers the 2 of them are swapped in order to keep the Black World from collapsing.
Hanamiya Kazuha got hit by a car when she was little which caused brain damage and memory lapses. She’s been able to live her daily life fairly normally despite having gaps in her memories. One day her childhood friend Hiroya tells her that her brother Shiki has been MIA for a few days. The two of them think he might be sucked into an MMO game called Arcadia – on server V – where if you login to the server, your body goes into a coma and your soul is “inside” the game. Hiroya then tells Kazuha to make an alt on her brother’s account and join the fun but…our heroine apparently barely knows how to use a computer let alone play an online MMORPG. On top of it, server V is a PK server full of high level players and somehow Kazuha has access to godly powers that allow her to basically wipe out everything in sight. So now while she’s trying to find her oniichan, every player is out to get her to join their party so they can clear the end game dungeon – the Hakobune – in order to log their soul out of Server V. Unfortunately their time is limited because something called the “Death Cloud” is running around basically wiping all the data off the server.

What better way to end a year than with a D3P kusoge amirite!? For some strange reason despite knowing that every D3P game this year had horrid reviews, I decided to give believer a chance. After all it was a straight VN, art looked decent, story seemed legit and it had some nice voice actors – what could POSSIBLY go wrong? Well sadly the one thing that went wrong is the awful writing which basically ruined the rest of the game. But more on that in my final thoughts! Our story starts when Sonozaki Mia’s mother gave her a book when she was little and then both of her parents died. She was adopted by her childhood friend Omi’s family – but then his parents went missing in action! So now Mia lives with Omi and attends school where she has a harem of dudes who just so happen to be her guardians! Turns out Mia harbors some serious magic powers and the book she was given was her personal spell book to defeat the dark lord!! Somehow though, Mia had no idea about any of this until she gets to school and a bunch of angry NPC monsters attack her. After her man harem fights them off, 4 dudes come down calling themselves the Heavenly Four and say that they need her magic book so their Dark Lord can take over the world! *evil laughter* So now Mia has to take on her job as the mage priestess and band with her man harem guardians to save the world from destruction.
