Otome Game Review: Suran Digit

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.

Otome Game Review: Norn9 -Act Tune-

Otomate can’t seem to put their cow to pasture so they pooped out another Norn9 game. Unfortunately they’re completely out of ideas and grasping for straws so what better way to do this then to use different writers and artists and just do a bootleg mashup of Last Era!? Not much of a review ahead and mostly just rambles about the game.

Otome Game Review: Moshi, Kono Sekai ni Kamisama ga Iru to Suru Naraba.

Title sounds like a light novel mouthful which means “If there is a god in this world then…” The title itself is pretty ironic at the things that go down in the story but that was probably Rejet’s intention. The story starts when Kurumi Haruka, a lonely high school girl is forced to be part of the school field trip committee with 4 guys. All 5 of them receive letters one day from “themselves” that have a strange “wish” written on it. None of them have any idea what’s going on until a series of strange incidents begin happening around them. To find the true plot of the game, massive spoilers after the jump. If you plan to play this I suggest just skipping to my final thoughts at the bottom. If you do decide to read the spoilers, be warned, this isn’t for the faint of heart. Also warning: lots of text walls. Continue reading “Otome Game Review: Moshi, Kono Sekai ni Kamisama ga Iru to Suru Naraba.”

Guest Review: Norn9 Var Commons

Greetings again, buta-ettes!  Oink if ya hear me! (::deafening grunts split the earth asunder and blot out the sun::).  Today we will be reviewing Norn9 (and unfortunately this is the all ages version, not the R18 version Norn69), and trigger warning here but…it kinda sucked.  I’ll also toss in an overall spoiler warning in here because while I won’t be doing summaries of the routes, I will be discussing plot points in a spoiler way in order to complain about them.

Otome Game Review: The Wizard & the Master

From the graveyard of Quin Rose, I’ve finally picked up & finished Wizard & Master! I originally had the PC version but I couldn’t get started on it because I didn’t want to deal with yet another grueling battle/stat raiser system like Crimson Empire or Arabian’s Lost. Thankfully Quin Rose made the Vita port a straight VN but just like with Alice, it was at the cost of a lot of CGs on the chopping block. (;´・ω・) Oh well our story begins in the country of Rune Venus where everyone can use magic – everyone except our heroine Alicia who has 0 magic powers (or so she thinks.) In order to inherit the throne, princess Alicia has 25 weeks to find a powerful wizard husbando or else she gets sent back to the countryside and loses her inheritance. It’s a fateful half a year, will Alicia be able to secure her wizard ikeman? 😆
